True Conception of the Ahmadiyya Movement
by Maulana Muhammad Ali
In this book, the author discusses the origins of the Ahmadiyya Movement and the role of its Founder, Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad of Qadian, in restoring the original beauty of Islam and enthusing the members of his Movement with the inspiration to peacefully spread Islam through propagation work. It also dispels several accusations against the Movement and its Founder.
