Historical Perspective

This conference was envisioned by the holy founder of worldwide Ahmadiyya Muslim Jama`at, The Promised Messiah and Mahdi(as), over a hundred years ago. The Ahmadiyya Muslim Jama`at organizes it in many countries on a regular basis. Scholars of various religions express the beauties of their respective faiths, in a peaceful and friendly atmosphere of love and brotherhood.

We affirm the value of interfaith interaction, for educating ourselves regarding other faiths and enriching our awareness of God. The Interfaith concept is a unifying vehicle, which can aid us in bringing the reformation of the world nearer to reality.

In Canada, the World Religions Conference has been organized by the Ahmadiyya Muslim Jama`at with the cooperation of several cities, academic institutions, faith based associations, Student clubs and numereous other organizations for the last 31 years.
