Tribute by Khwaja Hasan Nizami of Dehli



(Khwaja Hasan Nizami was a spiritual leader and successor of a saint of Dehli, India. His tribute was reproduced in the Lahore Ahmadiyya paper Paigham Sulh, of 26 December 1951, taken from his own journal. The English translation given below appeared in The Light and Islamic Review, September-October 1992 and September-October 2001.)


Maulana Muhammad Ali was the head of the Lahore Jama‘at of the Ahmadis. His death was recently reported by Lahore radio. He did not agree with the khilafat of Qadian, and so he had formed a separate Jama`at. Khwaja Kamal-ud-Din belonged to his group. Maulana Muhammad Ali also translated the Holy Quran into English. In connection with the work of the propagation of Islam, I had cause to meet the Maulana from the very beginning of my life till today. I consider him to be a very great and very successful worker. May Allah grant him protection, and patience to the bereaved.

I inform my disciples and their leaders in India and Pakistan to hold meetings of reading the Fatiha for him. He has rendered so much service to the Quran and Islam that I believe it essential to hold the reading of the Fatiha for him.

(Munadi, September-October 1951)
