In this study special emphasis is given to the Ahmadiyya Muslim doctrine of God. The Ahmadiyya movement in Islam takes its name from the founder of the movement, Mirza Ghulam Ahmad, who lived in Qadian, Punjab, India, from 1835-1908. Organized in 1889, the movement has expanded under the leadership of his successors with present headquarters in Rabwah, Pakistan. Its influence has been out of proportion to its membership of less than 3001000 members. The Ahmadiyyas maintain an extensive outreach program which now has centers in more than forty different countries of Asia, Europe, Africa, and the Americas, including a number of centers in the United States. There are several reasons for concentrating upon the Ahmadiyya sources in a study of the Muslim doctrine of God.
