The Ahmadiyya Muslim Research Association (AMRA) of Canada brings together scholars, researchers, academics, thought leaders, knowledge synthesizers and brokers, and students from diverse institutions, sectors and training backgrounds, belonging to the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community. The aim of this organization is to promote world-class research and scholarship through collaborations, networking, and mentoring to inspire the next generation of Ahmadi Muslim researchers in Canada.
Our mission is to bring about a new Islamic Golden Age of Intellectual progress and advancement, based on the prophecy of The Promised Messiahas that the members of his community will excel in the fields of knowledge and wisdom.
We envision a multidisciplinary community of Ahmadi researchers and scholars working together to solve humanity’s grand challenges under the divine guidance and leadership of the Khalifa-tul-Masih. The Ahmadiyya Muslim Community is currently led by the fifth Khalifa, his Holiness Mirza Masroor Ahmadaba, who is a great proponent of scientific research and knowledge. His Holinessaba has repeatedly encouraged the community to pursue careers in research and to reflect upon the guidance and wisdom provided in the Holy Quran as the foundation stone of their breakthroughs.
As we grow, AMRA hopes to provide and share resources, innovative practices, collaboration, networking opportunities and professional development opportunities to its members to advance research of Canadian Ahmadi Muslims at National and International levels. In time, AMRA hopes to offer a global forum for all Ahmadi Muslims involved in any form of research and education.
Our members include graduate and post graduate trainees; faculty members, researchers at all career stages; inventors, innovators and entrepreneurs of science and technology; science policy practitioners; research managers and administrators; and science enthusiasts. AMRA Canada’s membership recognizes the varying career stages and proficiency levels of its members in their research areas and embraces the diversity of opinions, perspectives, and ideas from all.
