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
Maulana Muhammad Ali was the head of the Lahore Jamaat 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)
