Learn about the Ahmadi Muslims, who enjoy religious freedom only in the Jewish state!

Meet the Ahmadi Muslims, one of Israel’s many thriving religious minorities.

A small Islamic sect, the Ahmadiyya community is a persecuted minority across the Middle East. In Israel, however, Ahmadis enjoy full religious and cultural freedom and pray in the only Ahmadi mosque in the region.

According to Israeli Ahmadiyya community leader Muhammad Sharif Odeh, the Ahmadis have complete religious freedom in Israel, especially compared to their brethren in the rest of the region and in Pakistan, where Ahmadis cannot use any religious symbols or even greet each other with a traditional Arabic salutation.

“I am a Muslim, Palestinian, and I am here. It is a good thing that there is an Israeli state,” Odeh declared.
