About Ahmadiyya Muslim Jama'at Canada:

Ahmadiyya Muslim Jama’at Canada (AMJ) is the Canadian branch of the Ahmadiyya Muslim religion which is practiced by millions of people in more than 200 countries. The religion is a form of Islam founded in 1889. Followers believe that Mirza Ghulam Ahmad of Qadian, India was the second coming of Jesus of Nazareth. AMJ does not believe in using violence to spread Islam and reports that it is the only Islamic organization endorsing the separation of mosque (church) and state.

Ahmadiyya Muslim Jama’at Canada hosts an annual convention, Jalsa Salana. Believers gather to pray together, meet with friends, welcome new members, and remember those who have recently died.

AMJ organizes Fast with a Muslim Friend, providing Canadians with an opportunity to experience fasting similar to the practice undertaken by Muslims during Ramadan. The charity reports that fasting teaches self-control and inspires people to think about the poor in the community.
