Khwaja Kamal-ud-Din About Khwaja KamaludDin


Khwaja Kamal-ud-Din was born in Punjab, India, and received his education at the famous Forman Christian College, Lahore. His grandfather, Abdur Rashid, a famous poet, was at one time chief Muslim Judge of Lahore during the Sikh period. In 1893 he joined the Ahmadiyya Movement and became a close associate of Mirza Ghulam Ahmad Founder of the Ahmadiyya movement. Before joining the movement he was planning on converting to Christianity but was convinced by Ghulam Ahmad not to convert.

In 1912 he proceeded to England in pursuence of his legal practice and was instructed by Hakeem Noor-ud-Din, the first khalifa (successor) of Ghulam Ahmad, to keep three things in view, one of which was to try to get the Mosque in Woking opened which was originally built by the Begum of Bhopal, and had been reported to have been locked for some time. Having reached London, Kamaludin enquired about the Mosque, met with other Muslims and was able to have the Woking Mosque unlocked. He laid the foundation of the “Woking Muslim Mission and Literary Trust” as well as The Islamic Review.

From 1912 until his death, he devoted his life to the propagation of a decidedly non-sectarian Islam in Britain. Besides visiting England several times for lengthy periods, he also toured other countries in Europe, Asia and Africa, including his home country of India, delivering lectures on Ahmadiyya. He performed his second Hajj in the company of Lord Headley, the famous British convert and the Khwaja's close friend and associate.

In 1920, Kamal-ud-Din toured Southeast Asia where, through public discourses, he successfully managed to win confidence among some Indonesian Muslims. He delivered a number of speeches in Surabaya and Batavia which attracted headlines in several leading newspapers.
