The news seems to report much about problem leaders of the Muslim world. They include bloodthirsty extremists, fiery Mullahs and unyielding autocrats. Also, throw in the chatter from absolute cynics who can’t believe that a practicing Muslim could possibly live a life of peace. And we are left to ask: Where are the good guys in the group?

Well, this month several U.S. media outlets picked up on the visit from London to Los Angeles of a unique Muslim leader. His Holiness Mirza Masroor Ahmad is the spiritual Caliph, or Khalifa of Islam, and head of the worldwide Ahmadiyya Muslim Community.

The Khalifa is the fifth successor to the Community’s founder, Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad of Qadian, India, who toward the end of the 19th century claimed to be the awaited reformer and Messiah.
