100 Years Ago… – England Reporting


Al Fazl, 22 June 1918


Hazrat Mufti Muhammad Sadiqra| Ahmadiyya ARC

A lady who I have been recently preaching, after being convinced, has finally accepted Islam. Her name is Miss Mary Morgan and her Islamic name is Maryam. I am also preaching some others. [Miss Maryam’s] request for Bai’at has been posted to Hazrat Khalifatul Masih. (It has been conveyed – Editor.)

Our tabligh [preaching] is not just limited to the city of London. In fact, we tour places outside London as well. Accordingly, Qazi [Muhammad Abdullah] Sahib is currently touring Brighton and Hove and the surrounding areas, while I covered the areas of Carisbrooke, Newport, Sandown, Brading and Cowes [in the Isle of Wight] among other areas, where I distributed literature and did tabligh. 

Princess Mary, daughter of His Majesty, the Emperor of India, King George V takes a keen interest in public good. The public here sees her with great respect and love. It was her birthday in April. On this occasion, I wrote her a letter on behalf of Jamaat-e-Ahmadiyya, congratulating her and presenting a brief introduction of the Jamaat. Along with the letter, I sent a book in proof of the truth of Jamaat-e-Ahmadiyya, for which I received a letter of acknowledgement. 

Reports have been recently published in English newspapers about the friendly relations between the Emperor of India and the King of Hejaz. In this regard, I wrote a brief article for The Mercury about the King of Hejaz, the War and the Promised Messiah’sas prophecy, which was published. Some copies of the newspaper have been sent to India. Also, a leaflet for the purpose of tabligh was sent to the King of Hejaz along with a letter.
