WHO WE ARE
The Majlis Khuddam-ul Ahmadiyya (MKA) aka Ahmadiyya Muslim Youth Organization, Ghana, is the Ghana branch of the youth wing of the worldwide Ahmadiyya Muslim Community. The Majlis was founded by Hadhrat Mirza Bashiruddin Mahmud Ahmad, second successor of the Promised Messiahas in 1938 as one of the auxiliary wings of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community. MKA is made up of the male members of the worldwide Ahmadiyya Muslim Community between the ages of 15 and 40. MKA also has oversight responsibilities over Majlis Atfalul Ahmadiyya (MAA) who are the male children of the community between the ages of 7 and 15. Among the objectives of the Majlis Khuddam-ul Ahmadiyya are;
- To train and educate its members, including Atfalul Ahmadiyya, in true Islamic ways, to inculcate in them the love of Allah and Hazrat Khataman Nabiyyin Muhammad Mustafasaw, the spirit of serving Islam, country and mankind, and strive for their welfare.
MKA Ghana, like the other branches worldwide is under the auspices of the Khalifatul Masih, the worldwide leader of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community. The Majlis is administered by a National Aamila (Executive body), headed by a National President (Sadr), with its national headquarters in Accra. The National Aamila is made up of young men from across the country heading various departments and regions. Besides the Sadr and his Deputies, there are 17 departments and 12 regions headed by individual members of the National Aamila. Each of the 17 departments is headed by a Muhtamim (Secretary) and each of the 12 regions is headed by a Qaid Ilaqa (Regional President). The Departments under the National Aamila are replicated in the 12 regions across the country with each department at the regional level headed by a Nazim (Regional Secretary) and each Circuit/District (Dil’a) by a Qaid Dil’a (Circuit President). The same departments are also repeated at the Dil’a level where each department is headed by a Nazim Dil’a. Over 10,000 active members across the country were counted in a census exercise carried out in the year 2013. At the beginning of the Majlis year which starts from 1st November to 31st October the following year, a Consolidated Programme is drawn at the National level for implementation at the Circuit and Regional levels.
