Under divine guidance, Hazrat Musleh-e-Maudra founded Majlis Khuddam-ul-Ahmadiyya, an auxiliary organisation of youth, on 4 February 1938.
Initially established in Qadian, the tenets of this organisation rest on the principles of service and sacrifice and to inculcate commitment to one’s faith, country and to the whole world.
With the spread of the community, the branches of Khuddam-ul-Ahmadiyya expanded internationally. The seed sown in 1938 spread to the corners of the world and the organisation entered a new era of progress.
Today, Khuddam from all around the world partake in competitions that are held nationally as well as internationally as a means to excel and propagate good spirit of brotherhood.
To enhance the above-mentioned principles of service and sacrifice, to inculcate commitment to one’s faith, to train Khuddam to become a beneficial part of the society and to enhance in them the religious, spiritual and physical qualities of Khuddam, Majlis Khuddam-ul-Ahmadiyya Pakistan organised Syedna Masroor Ilmi and Sports Muqablajat (Academic and Sports Competitions) from 15 to 17 February 2019 following the gracious approval of Hazrat Amirul Momineen, Khalifatul Masih Vaa.
