100 Years Ago… – News from Ahmadiyya missions around the world


Al Fazl, 13 September 1919

Letter from the UK

Qazi [Muhammad Abdullah] Sahib is residing at the coastal area [of south England]. His condition has improved somewhat, but he still remains weak. Occasionally, he carries out tabligh as well and delivered a successful lecture in Hastings. He travelled to London for two days in order to meet us and then returned.

Mufti Sahib is suffering from trachoma and a mild cough. He has been fully engaged in political work. A portrait of Mufti Sahib and the current situation of Jamaat-e-Ahmadiyya has been published in various newspapers of London. Gradually, we are understanding the dynamics here and are now working more effectively.

Recently, an Arab embraced Ahmadiyyat whose name is Abdullah Hassan. An Egyptian who was conveyed the message of Islam by Chaudhry Sahib embraced Ahmadiyyat; his name is Hassan Gauhar.

An Indian Muslim who has been residing here for quite some time now has entered into Ahmadiyyat, the true Islam, through my tabligh. His name is Ali Muhammad and he is a factory worker in London. His request of Bai‘at has been sent in this mail to be presented before Hazrat Khalifatul Masih, may Allah be his helper.

Friday prayer was led by Chaudhry Sahib, who delivered a compelling sermon in English. An Ahmadi English lady also was part of the prayer. We are meeting new converts. Two to three new converts visit every day. When we reached the house on our last visit, a new convert lady opened the door for us. She lives with her husband in the same house. Mr Wilson (Saeed) was also around, who had come there from Leicester for a few days and continued to offer prayers with us.

Request for prayer from London

My eyes continue to suffer from trachoma, however, I had to carry on as I had political work and then, owing to the arrival of new missionaries, I needed to show and help them understand the work [here]. But as the pain has increased now, it seems necessary to abstain from reading and writing and opt for proper medical treatment. Members of the Jamaat are requested to pray.

In the meantime, I shall neither be able to write replies to the letters of noble friends, nor reports for the newspaper. However, Master Abdul Rahim Nayyar Sahib will continue to write reports and keep informing members of the Jamaat about my condition through newspapers and letters, Insha-Allah.
