Majlis Khuddamul Ahmadiyya is a spiritual organization of young men. Majlis Khuddam-ul-Ahmadiyya (MKA) was founded in 1938 by Khalifat-ul Masih II, Mirza Basheer-ud-Din Mahmood Ahmad, the second Caliph of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community. According to the auxiliary’s founder, the name Khuddam-ul-Ahmadiyya literally means that its members are Servants of Ahmadiyya.
Khalifat-ul Masih II, Mirza Basheer-ud-Din Mahmood Ahmad established the tenets of Majlis Khuddam-ul-Ahmadiyya to rest on the principles of service and sacrifice and to inculcate a commitment to one’s faith, one’s country, and to the world around them, tenets that still resonate through its international membership. The importance of Majlis Khuddam-ul-Ahmadiyya was so great that in 1940 membership was made compulsory for every young man between the ages of 16 and 40, and as a result, branches of Khuddam-ul-Ahmadiyya were established in all parts of the world. Every member of this organization is called Khadim (servant).
For Ahmadi children from 7 to 15 years, a separate organization called Majlis Atfalul Ahmadiyya is formed, working under the supervision of Majlis Khuddamul Ahmadiyya. Each member is called “Tifl”. The Sadr Majlis Khuddamul Ahmadiyya is the chief superintendent of both organizations, performing duties as per the constitution and instructions of Hazrat Khalifatul Masih. In order to implement the programs of the Majlis smoothly and to function better, the entire work of the organization has been divided into various departments.
