In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is no one (no idol, no person, no grave, no prophet, no imam, no dai, nobody!) worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.
Dear and Beloved Brother in Islam, amongst the many false beliefs of the Ahmadi sect is that they do not believe in Prophet Mohamed (saws) as the Last and Final Messenger of Allah, and they believe that their self-proclaimed leader Ghulam Ahmad Qadiyaani also received revelations from Allah! Because of their gross deviation of belief, it is the unanimous opinion of the Muslim Ummah that the Ahmadis have left the fold of Islam and all the laws and restrictions of Shariah that apply to a disbeliever would apply to the Ahmadis.
Your Question: is it permissible for me to marry her when she remains in her ahmedi jamat
The Ahmadis are considered disbelievers, and thus it would be absolutely forbidden for a believer, who sincerely believes in Allah and the Last Day, to marry anyone except a believing woman, or a woman from amongst the People of the Book.
Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 2 Surah Baqarah verse 221:
221 Do not marry unbelieving women (idolaters) until they believe; a slave woman who believes is better than an unbelieving woman even though she allures you. Nor marry (your girls) to unbelievers until they believe: a man slave who believes is better than un unbeliever even though he allure you. Unbelievers do (but) beckon you to the fire. But Allah beckons by His grace to the Garden (of Bliss) and forgiveness and makes His Signs clear to mankind: that they may celebrate His praise.
Your Question: if it is not wht else i can do for her?
The absolute best thing you can do for her is to invite her to the Truth of Al-Islam; and if she truly accepts Islam and declares solemn belief and unconditionally submits to the commands of Allah and His Last and Final Messenger, Mohamed ar-Rasool Allah; it would be absolutely legal for you to seek her hand in marriage.
But if she insists on retaining her Ahmadi deen and belief, it would be absolutely prohibited in Islam for a believer to marry a disbeliever, and such a marriage would have absolutely no legal basis in Islamic Law or the Sight of Allah Subhanah.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
Your brother and well wisher in Islam,
