Jamia Ahmadiyya International, Ghana

The purpose of establishing the Jamia Ahmadiyya is mentioned by Hazrat Promised Messiah (May Peace be on him) in these words:

 “The only motive for our establishing this Madrassah is that we should place religion above the world. And formal education has been included in the programme so that this may serve the purpose of religious knowledge.”

Huzur (May Peace be on him) further said:

“Our motive is not that one should pass F.A or B.A degrees and be going about seeking the world. Our view is that such people should spend their lives serving religion. And I think Madrassah is necessary because it may serve the purpose of Religion.”

Jamiatul Mubashireen, Ghana

Jamiatul Mubashireen, Or Ahmadiyya Muslim Missionary Training College (AMMTC)  Ghana started on 21 March 1966 under the auspices of Maulana Ata-Ullah Kaleem, the then Ameer and Missionary-In-Charge, Ghana. Maulvi Muhammad Saddique Gurdaspuri Sahib was appointed as the first Principal with Alhaj Hafiz Jibreel Saeed as the Housemaster.

Transfer of the college

The college then transferred to Ekumfi-Ekrawfo in the Central Region of Ghana, from Saltpond on 6 January 2003. Historically, Ekumfi-Ekrawfo is the birthplace of Ahmadiyyat in Ghana, where the first Ghanaian Ahmadi – Chief Mahdi Appah hailed. This is the place where the first Markazi Missionary  Maulana Abdur Raheem Nayyar was received in 1921 after disembarking in Saltpond.

Hazrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad, The Supreme Leader of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Jama’at, officially inaugurated the new building on 14 March 2004 during his historic visit to Ghana

Inauguration of Jamia Ahmadiyya International

26 August 2012

The Supreme Head of worldwide Ahmadiyya Muslim community  directed to start an international Jamia Ahmadiyya which can further educate the students in theology after passing their basic Missionary training course. On 26th August 2012 this desire was fulfilled by the opening of a new Jamia Ahmadiyya International, in Mankessim, Ghana for the education of theology and scholastic sciences.

Mankessim is located in Central region of Ghana. The town is well known in the history of Ahmadiyyat. In 1921 the first Ahmadi missionary Maulvi Abdul Rahim Nayyar came to Saltpond which is very close to Mankessim with the message of Ahmadiyyat for Africa.

This beautifully constructed Jamia  was inaugurated on 26 August 2012 by Dr. Maulvi Abdul Wahab Adam (the then Ameer and Missionary In charge of Ahmadiyya Muslim Mission Ghana). This institution is now hosting  students from different countries of Africa for a seven years Shahid degree Course.

For the first year 18 students were selected from 8 African countries including Ghana, Nigeria, Uganda, Sierra Leon, Burkina Faso, Togo, Benin and Kenya.

    “THE ONLY MOTIVE FOR OUR ESTABLISHING THIS MADRASSAH IS THAT WE SHOULD PLACE RELIGION ABOVE THE WORLD. AND FORMAL EDUCATION HAS BEEN INCLUDED IN THE PROGRAMME SO THAT THIS MAY SERVE THE PURPOSE OF RELIGIOUS KNOWLEDGE.”====

    Let me add to it
    The main purpose of religion is that
    Islam is Religion of Prosperity–Live in Paradise On earth snd The Next.

    PARADISE ON EARTH.
    Wise(pious) People live in wealth and luxury, but stupid people live in poverty. Those who love GOD inherit wealth and those who fear GOD prolong his life.Proverb 21;20.
    ( LIVE IN WEALTH AND LUXURY AND HAPPINESS )

    THE BIGGEST ACHIEVEMENT IS TO GET TWO PARADISES.
    And there are men who say: “Our Lord! Give us good in this world (Paradise ) and good in the Hereafter(paradise) and defend us from the torment of the Fire!”QS 2;201.

    Those who have believed and obey all Allah’s laws. (63) For them there is the good news in the worldly life (Heavent) and in the Hereafter Heavent: there is no change in the words of Allah.That is the great achievement. (64) QS 10;63-64.

    Everyone has to pursue the good life, happiness, and prosperity on earth, not only for himself, but for the next generation, and society. In order to be successful, every one has to work hard and sweat. On the other word, Islamic teaching encourage people to live in wealth or prosperity.

    Those who seek a good life in this world and ignore a good life in Hereafter, he/she is a loser, like the life of Fir’aun (Pharoh). He was a King and the richest in the world, because he did not believe in God, he will cast to Hell in Hereafter.

    The Extremist Wahhabi (ISIS, Taliban etc) ignore/ neglect to promote and to strength economy, they concentrate the life of Hereafter.
    God say: You fool!
    You fool, Do you want to be shown that faith without works is dead or useless.James 2:20,

    They spend most their time to seek God by praying many times at mosque, but they neglect or ignore to worldly activity, or to strengthen their economy and create jobs for community. In order people can live in wealth or prosperity. That is why we see most extremist Muslim live in poverty. Very sad.

    Those who seek a good life in Hereafter, but ignore a good life in this world, he is deceived by Satan. In order to get a good life in Hereafter, he should get first a good life in this world.

    And surely, We gave you authority on the earth and appointed for you therein provisions (for your life). Little thanks do you give. (It means that few people enter God’s Heaven or Paradise.) Q. 7;10.

    These kind of verses should be thought to next generation, grandchildren at home and school and Madrasah

    • Somi: you are quoting a lot so-called ‘Isis’ and the Saudis. Would it not be better to address them directly at their websites? As you know here we simply teach ‘Love for All and Hatred for None’.
