    • Assalamu Alaikum,

      Thank you for your question.

      First, its important to know that unlike many non-Ahmadi Muslim mosques, every Muslim is welcome to come and pray in our mosques. Its a house of Allah and the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community opens this house of Allah to every person, regardless of their faith. In fact, every Friday, we have non-Ahmadi Muslims praying behind an Ahmadi Muslim Imam. An Ahmadi is killed for such an action in Pakistan.

      We beleive that Mirza Ghulam Ahmad is the promised reformer and Imam Mahdi, prophecized by Prophet Muhammad (sa). Therefore, we find it wrong to follow an Imam who has rejected the Imam Mahdi a dnmessiah of the age.

      Think about it like this: if Jesus pbuh descended on the minaret in Damascus tomorrow and some of the Muslims rejected his claim, would you say your salat behind that Imam?
