Some website developments

1. I have made the English Translation of the Holy Quran (2010 Revised Edition) available in two more formats on www.ahmadiyya.org as below:

  1. HTML format. This is a single webpage consisting of only the translation with chapter introductions, but without footnotes.
  2. E-book formats: mobi (for Kindle) and epub. This corresponds to the entire printed book, except that from the introduction only the first two sections (the life of the Holy Prophet and about the Quran itself) have been included. In these versions the page entitled 'Features of the e-book edition' explains how the book is organized. My experimentation shows that the precise appearance of the e-book varies according to the device and the reader software you use. I have tested it on a Samsung Galaxy 10.1 inch Tablet and a Samsung Galaxy 4 inch screen smartphone, using the Kindle app for mobi and Universal Book Reader for epub.

2. You may recall that at the event we held in May 2013 to commemorate the centenary of the Woking Muslim Mission, five newsreel film clips of functions at the Woking Mosque, made by the British Pathe newsreel company of old, were played. We had to pay a licence fee of several hundred Pounds for just that one public performance of the clips. On our website www.wokingmuslim.org we could only refer our readers to the British Pathe website if they wanted to watch any clip, and that too was in the low resolution used on their website. To place those clips on our website, we would have been charged a licence fee of several thousands of Pounds per year.

A few days ago British Pathe made their entire collection of newsreels available on YouTube in high resolution. So on the www.wokingmuslim.org website I have now added links to the clips on YouTube, after identifying the ones of interest to us. Please go to the Home Page and look at the top banner. From there you can play the two clips of most interest that are highlighted, and also go to the page from where all the clips can be accessed.

    From Dil Sooz:

    The Video Clip Showing Begum Shah Jehan the empress of Bhopal State visiting/praying Woking mosque where Imam is from Lahore Ahmadiyya Movement in Islam–flies in face of proclamation of Pakistani nuclear scientist Dr Abdul Qadeer Khan–that there was no influence of Ahmadiyya thought in Bhopal-his ancestral state.

    From Zahid Aziz:

    It is stated in A Mighty Striving (English translation of the biography of Maulana Mumammad Ali):

    "On 15 July 1926, another very senior figure in the Movement, Syed Muhammad Ahsan of Amroha, died. He was among the earliest followers of the Promised Messiah and was highly respec­ted by Hazrat Mirza sahib. He was a recognised, leading authority on the Holy Quran and Hadith, and was the right hand man of the ruler of Bhopal, the Nawab Siddiq Hasan Khan. After accepting the Promised Messiah he left his high post and came to live in Qadian in a small room near Hazrat Mirza sahib merely for the sake of the Divine cause." (p. 203)
