Head of Ahmadiyya Muslim Community Launches New Research Website, Ahmadipedia.org
The website is developed by the Ahmadiyya Archive & Research Centre to facilitate research into the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community
The Ahmadiyya Muslim Community is pleased to announce that on 2 July 2021, the World Head of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community, the Fifth Khalifa (Caliph), His Holiness, Hazrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad launched Ahmadipedia.org – a new online research tool providing accurate and authentic information related to the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community.
His Holiness officially launched the website from the Mubarak Mosque in Islamabad, Tilford, after announcing its launch during his Friday Sermon.
The launch was followed by a silent prayer led by His Holiness in thanks to God Almighty.
His Holiness stated that the new online encyclopaedia, developed by the Ahmadiyya Archive and Research Centre, will provide information on the books, historical events and beliefs of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community.
Hazrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad said:
“I wish to announce that an Ahmadiyya Encyclopaedia, developed by the central Ahmadiyya Archive and Research Centre, will be launched today. By the grace of Allah the Almighty this website will be a resource for members of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community and it can be reached at www.Ahmadipedia.org where a home page in the style of a search engine will be available to search Ahmadi-related content. It has been made very simple and easy to use and it will provide basic information about the books, personalities, events, beliefs and buildings of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community.”
Hazrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad further said:
“Ahmadi Muslims around the world possess a vast amount of important Ahmadi-related information which has not been published anywhere. Hence, there is a ‘contribute’ option on Ahmadipedia where people can provide whatever information, documents and records they hold on any relevant topic. Contributors will not be able to automatically upload or edit the information on the website, rather they will submit the information and the central team will publish it after due diligence and verification. Thus, this website will become a project that continues to evolve and expand with the cooperation of all the members of the Community.”
Concluding, Hazrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad prayed and said:
“May Allah the Almighty reward all those who have worked and contributed on this project.”
