Over a hundred years ago, God Almighty revealed to the founder of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community; Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad asabbreviation for "Peace be upon him",
“I shall cause thy message to reach the corners of the earth”
In fulfilment of this prophecy, a team at Jamia Ahmadiyya UK was given the blessed opportunity to produce a website informing people of the blessed institute that is located in the heart of the British countryside.
Just over a year ago, a team from Jamia Ahmadiyya UK began work on the website. The website consists of 9 different sections ranging from a basic home section to a separately crafted microsite for ‘Majallatul Jamia’ – the annual journal of Jamia Ahmadiyya UK.
The home section summarises the website as well as presents a basic summary of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Association. With a ‘News’ section at the bottom, you can quickly get updates on what has been happening in Jamia UK. The ‘About’ section gives a basic history of Jamia Ahmadiyya UK as well as a rundown of the course. The final section about the Jamia hostel is ‘Hostel Life.’ This gives an insight on what life is like at Jamia! Giving a breakdown of the day in the life of a student, as well as including sections on: dining, extracurricular activities, health & fitness and serving the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community.
In the near future, the Alumni section will be added. This is an up-to-date tracker looking at previous graduates of Jamia Ahmadiyya UK. It will showcase where they are currently serving in the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community and their achievements. It also gives an opportunity to see life after Jamia.
Arguably, the highlight of the Jamia Website is the Majallatul Jamia section, specially crafted and separate to the main website. It features all the new and recently published articles in the Jamia Magazine, including the ‘Yearly Editions’ all the way from 2010 up to the latest 2020 edition. The website is constantly updated with new articles being uploaded as they are ready. Each article is tagged for easy accessibility; when you need to find an article, you can easily search for it and even sort it by the publishing date.
The Jamia website is an accumulation of a year’s effort by the Jamia faculty and students which have come together to produce an informative website so the wider community can learn about the ins and outs of Jamia UK.
