THE HOLY PROPHET (SAW) SAID
HISTORY OF JAMIATUL MUBASHIREEN GHANA
It is an established fact that Ahmadiyyat penetrated into Ghana in 1921. The rapid progress and strides chalked by the Markazi Missionaries in the propagation of Ahmadiyyat, called for the training of local missionaries. Markazi Missionaries trained some individuals who acted as missionaries.
Before then, Experimental Missionary Training Schools had been set up in Wa, in the Upper West Region by Alhaj Imam Saleh, Agona Swedru in the Central Region, Mampong and Kumasi in the Ashanti Region.
In 1962 an experimental missionary training college was established under the instrumentality of the Late Maulana Abdul Malik Khan-then Ashanti Regional Missionary to run a two-year missionary course. Seven students passed out from this course. Out of the seven, the best two graduates namely Muhammad Yusuf Yawson Sahib and the late Abdul Wahid Obeng were sent to the Markaz for further studies.
In May 1965, Sahibzada Mirza Mubarak Ahmad, Wakil-e-Ala & Wakil-ut-Tabshir toured West Africa and in a meeting with the Ameers and Missionaries-in-charge of various West African countries, a decision to set up a Missionary training Collage at Saltpond was endorsed.
By the Grace of Allah, the college Ahmadiyya Muslim Missionary Training College Ghana started on 21ST March 1966 under the auspices of Maulvi Ata Ullah Kaleem-then Ameer and Missionary -in-charge of Ghana. The college was therefore inaugurated on 21st March, 1966 by Maulana Ata Ullah Kaleem with a student population of thirteen (13): nine Ghanaians and four Nigerians.
Maulvi Muhammad Siddique Gurdaaspuri was appointed as the first principal and Mr. Jibreal Saeed as Housemaster. Maulvi Siddique Sahib served the college as principal for two years. On his transfer to Sierra Leone, Maulvi Abdul Wahab Bin Adam- then Regional Missionary for Brong Ahafo served the college for one year as Principal and was succeeded by Mr.Abdul Hakeem Jouza, from Pakistan. According to Maulvi Abdul Wahab Bin Adam, two teachers: Mr. Ibrahim Manu and Mr. Fareed Menyah helped in the college as teachers during his tenure of office.........
