Intro
Per Ahmadiyya sources, the earliest history of the Community in the country begins in 1956, during the Second Caliphate, when Kamal Yousuf was appointed as the head of the mission in Sweden. The 2nd Khalifa seems to have arranged to open an ahmadi mission whilst on his tour of Europe in 1955. The Khalifa met Mr. Gunar Erickson, who had converted to Ahmadiyya, he is swedish. Mr. Gunar Erickson is made an employee of the Ahmadiyya community with full benefits. He totally disappears after 1980.

However it was not until 1970 that the Community was first officially registered. Today, there are 3 mosques, one of which is the oldest in the country, and also a number of other Islamic centers, representing an estimated average of 1000 Ahmadi’s in the country. There are Ahmadiyya centers is Stockholm and Luleå, in which future mosques have been planned. From 2016, Pakistan-born Rizwan Ahmad Afzal who was previously an imam in Luleå, is the imam of the Mahmood Mosque.
