The Ahmadiyya Muslim Youth Association (AMYA) is an international Muslim youth organization united under the spiritual leadership of the only Khalifa of Islam, His Holiness Mirza Masroor Ahmad, who resides in the United Kingdom. His Holiness is the world’s leading Muslim figure promoting peace and inter‐religious harmony. Through his sermons, lectures, books, and personal meetings, His Holiness continuously advocates for the worship of God Almighty, serving humanity and the establishment of universal human rights, a just society and separation of religion and state. He implores the youth to take an active role in serving the needs of humanity and living up to the standards of Islam to be upright, peaceful citizens wherever they live.
In June of 2012, His Holiness was welcomed to Capitol Hill in Washington D.C. where he delivered a keynote address entitled, “The Path to Peace – Just Relations between Nations,” to an audience filled with more than 30 members of the United States Congress, representatives of the Executive branch, foreign diplomats and other distinguished luminaries. In conjunction with this historic event, a bi‐partisan resolution was introduced in the House of Representatives in honor of the Khalifa’s visit.
The Ahmadiyya Muslim Community believes that only spiritual successorship can uphold the true values of Islam and unite humanity. Under the leadership of its Khalifa, the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community has now built more than 15,000 mosques, more than 500 schools and more than 30 hospitals. It has translated the Holy Quran into more than 60 languages.
