Forthcoming Visit to Woking

26th March 2006

The Light (UK), March 2006 Issue (p. 8)

On Sunday 26th March 2006, the U.K. Jamaat is arranging a visit to the Woking Mosque and Brookwood Cemetery. A world-famous mission of our Jamaat operated from the premises of the Woking Mosque from 1913 to around 1968. During this time the Mosque and the adjoining Mission House served as the national centre of Islam in the U.K. Muslim dignitaries from all over the Muslim world, including heads of government, kings, government officials, etc., used to visit this Mosque while in Britain. At Brookwood near Woking is a cemetery containing plots where Muslims have been buried for the past 90 years, including famous figures.

The Woking Muslim Mission is an important part of the history of the Lahore Ahmadiyya Movement. It is also a key part of the history of Islam in the U.K. We have a website where detailed information about this mission may be found:

We strongly urge our members to take part in this visit and see the Mosque which was opened for permanent public use for the first time in 1913 by Khwaja Kamal-ud-Din, a founding member of the Lahore Ahmadiyya Movement.
