Ahmadiyya Muslim Students Association and Ahmadiyya Muslim Community Calgary NW chapter:

Ahmadiyya Muslim Community, a religious organization, international in its scope, with members in over 190 countries. This is the most dynamic denomination of Islam in modern history, with worldwide membership exceeding tens of millions. The Ahmadiyya Community was established in 1889 by Hadhrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad (1835- 1908) in a small and remote village, Qadian, India. He claimed to be the reformer of the latter days, the Awaited One of the world community of religions (the Mahdi & Messiah).

The Community is an embodiment of the benevolent message of Islam - peace, universal brotherhood, and submission to the Will of God - in its pristine purity. The Ahmadiyya Muslim Community in Islam was created under divine guidance with the objective to rejuvenate Islamic moral and spiritual values. Wherever the Community is established, it endeavors to exert a constructive influence of Islam through social projects, educational institutes, health services and interfaith dialogues. It advocates peace, tolerance, love and understanding among followers of different faiths. It firmly believes in and acts upon the Qur`anic teaching: "There is no compulsion in religion." (2:257).

It strongly rejects violence and terrorism in any form and for any reason. Ahmadiyya Muslim Community has been holding many Interfaith Symposia and Conferences across Canada. The Community firmly believes and always promotes its famous slogan; “Love for All Hatred for None”

Admission is free for the public. However registration is recommended:
