This Third Edition has been published by the American Mission of the Ahmadiya Movement. Though perhaps the most important proselytizing movement of Islam worldwide, with offices said to be in 195 countries, the movement is controversial in Pakistan and its presence there has led to harassment, riots, deaths and in 1974 Pakistan's Parliament declared the Ahmadiyas to be non-Muslims as they do not regard the Prophet Muhammad as the final prophet. No other country is known to hold this position. Very Good/Sl. rubbed & lt soiled.
