The job of these scholars is to win the hearts of people through presenting Islam in its purest form as taught by the Holy Prophet of Islam saabbreviation for “Peace be upon him”.
The Promised Messiah asabbreviation for “Peace be upon him” started an institution named Madrassa-e-Ahmadiyya in Qadian, with the intention of creating such academics who would be able to carry on the duty which was previously served by these great scholars.
