The Ahmadiyya Muslim Community is pleased to announce that on 15 April 2019, after a period of 35-years, the Headquarters of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community moved from the Fazl Mosque in Southfields, London to Islamabad in Tilford, Surrey.

History was made when the World Head of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community, the Fifth Khalifa (Caliph), His Holiness Hazrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad departed from the Fazl Mosque shortly after 6pm and travelled directly to Islamabad where he arrived at 6.55pm and was greeted by hundreds of Ahmadi Muslim men, women and children, all overjoyed to welcome their spiritual leader to the new headquarters.

Upon arriving, His Holiness waved towards the Ahmadi Muslims and appreciated the poems recited by young children in praise of Allah the Almighty. It was a special and momentous occasion in the history of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community.

Later, His Holiness led the Maghreb and Isha prayers at the newly built Mubarak Mosque (The Blessed Mosque).

Earlier, hundreds of Ahmadi Muslims bade an emotional farewell to His Holiness as he departed from the Fazl Mosque, which had been the Community’s centre since the migration of the Fourth Khalifa in 1984.
