100 Years Ago… – Shuddhi Movement: Third Ahmadiyya Tabligh Delegation to Agra


Al Fazl, 9 April 1923

As reported in the previous [5 April 1923] issue of Al Fazl, the third delegation of our Jamaat left after the Asr prayer on 4 April [1923] to curb the apostasy of the Malkana [Rajputs]. Hazrat Khalifatul Masih II[ra] went to the car along with a large number of friends [to say goodbye to the missionaries]. Upon reaching there, Hazrat Khalifatul Masih delivered a speech, which will be published in a coming issue [of Al Fazl].

After the speech, Hazrat Khalifatul Masih gave 45 rupees on his and his family’s behalf to the head of the delegation, Babu Jamaluddin Sahib, for the journey and for the needs there [in Agra]. Other friends also contributed according to their strengths. The total contribution presented to this delegation amounted to 201 rupees.

Thereafter, members of the caravan stood in front of Hazrat Khalifatul Masih on the road as per usual, and then, after seeking permission, they left saying as-salam ‘alaikum.

May God Almighty be their supporter and helper. May countless nations accept Islam at their hands and the people be granted strength to adhere to their religion.
