Masroor Eye Institute
The institute is being constructed by Majlis Ansarullah UK – an auxiliary organization of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community for men of age 40 and over.
The name “Ansarullah” is an Arabic expression meaning “helpers of Allah.” It is taken from a verse of the Holy Qur’an, “And when Jesus perceived their disbelief, he said, ‘Who will be my helpers in the cause of Allah?’ The disciples answered, ‘We are the helpers of Allah. We have believed in Allah. And bear thou witness that we are obedient”
Āle`Imrān Chapter 3, Verse 53
All Ahmadi Muslims who are forty years of age or over comprise the general body of ‘Ansarullah.’ Majlis Ansarullah, like the main body of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community – to which it is subordinate – is a non-political, religious and spiritual organization.
Majlis Ansarullah UK has taken active participation in helping the people of Africa to undergo specialist eye operations.
Members of the Majlis have donated funds to carry out over 21,000 operations.
