About the Mosque
Welcome to Britain’s newest Mosque! The Mubarak Mosque (The Blessed Mosque) is the heart of the redevelopment of the Islamabad site of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community. The residential and administrative complex is located in Islamabad, Tilford, UK.
The Ahmadiyya Muslim Community
The Ahmadiyya Muslim community was founded in 1889 by Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad (1835-1908) of Qadian, India. He claimed to be the expected reformer of the latter days and the awaited one of the world’s religions (the Messiah and Mahdi of the latter days). His mission was to revive the peaceful teachings of Islam and engender in people’s hearts the love of God and the duty to serve mankind.
The community is now established in more than 210 countries and it spearheads an international effort to promote education and health across the developing world, as well as a global peace campaign to champion respect and human rights for all.
“Be kind and merciful to humanity, for all are [God’s] creatures: do not oppress them with your tongue, or hands, or in any other way. Always work for the good of mankind.”
Hazrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad – Head of the worldwide Ahmadiyya Muslim Community
The community is led by a system of Khilafat (spiritual leadership). His Holiness Hazrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad is the community’s fifth Khalifa and is based in London. He leads his global community and inspires it to serve humanity with the spirit of kindness and humility that is integral to Islam. In accordance with the teachings of Islam, he upholds the honour of all prophets of God and highlights the role of religion in the promotion of peace.
His Holiness has travelled globally to promote dialogue and understanding. He has also written to world leaders urging them to inculcate a true sense of justice and peace in international relations to avoid regional conflicts from engulfing the entire world. Under his leadership, the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community has launched campaigns across the world that present Islam’s true noble message of loyalty, freedom and peace.
