About the Author

Hadhrat Mirza Tahir Ahmad is the spiritual head of the Ahmadiyya Movement in Islam. He is the fourth successor of Hadhrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad (as) who proclaimed that he was the Messiah and reformer, promised by all the great religions of the world to the people of the latter age. His community is a dynamic, world-wide, missionary force in Islam.

Hadhrat Mirza Tahir Ahmad was born on 18 December 1928 in Qadian in India. He was educated in India, Pakistan and in the UK, at The London School of Oriental and African Studies. In 1982 he was elected as the Head of the world-wide Ahmadiyya Muslim Community following the demise of the third Khalifa (successor). The anti-Ahmadiyya ordinance imposed on 26 April 1984 by General Zia, the then dictator President of Pakistan, made it impossible for him to function as the head of his community while remaining in that country. After due consultation he decided to leave Pakistan immediately. Three days after the promulgation he took the plane from Karachi and came to London where he currently lives, and will remain until the situation in Pakistan changes for the better.

Hadhrat Mirza Tahir Ahmad is widely travelled and often delivers addresses to audiences including people from all walks of life and widely differing cultures. His addresses and other meetings are often accompanied by 'Question and Answer' sessions. He is always ready to respond to questions agitating the minds of his audience on any topic, religious or temporal, although his answers cannot avoid the influence of his deep understanding of religion, which pervades his thinking. He has written many books in Urdu as well as some in English. 'Murder in the Name of Allah' and 'Islam's Response to Contemporary Issues' are two of his recent English publications, which the reader may find of interest. He also occasionally expresses himself in Urdu verse.
