What is the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community?
The Ahmadiyya Muslim Community (AMC) is a dynamic, international movement within Islam. Founded in 1889, AMC spans over 190 countries with membership exceeding tens of millions. The United States chapter was established in 1921, making it the first American-Muslim organization.
The AMC was established in 1889 by his Holiness Mirza Ghulam Ahmad (1835-1908) of Qadian, India. Ahmad claimed to be the spiritual second coming of Jesus of Nazareth, whose advent was foretold by the Prophet of Islam, Muhammad, peace be upon him. The Community believes that God sent Ahmad, like Jesus, to end religious wars, condemn bloodshed and reinstitute morality, justice and peace. He also recognized the noble teachings of the great religious founders and saints, including Zoroaster, Abraham, Moses, Jesus, Krishna, Buddha, Confucius, Lao Tzu, and Guru Nanak, and explained how such teachings converged into the one true Islam.
