Lajna Ima’illah commonly known as Lajna is the Ahmadiyya Muslim Women’s Association, an auxiliary organisation of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community and our name means handmaidens of Allah. We were first established in 1922 in India as an independent and empowered women’s organisation by His Holiness Mirza Bashir-ud-din Mahmud Ahmad (may Allah be pleased with him) who was the Community’s second worldwide spiritual head known as Khalifatul Masih.
