Convention honours pioneers of British Islam
This association has the honour to host this year at its annual convention a special conference and programme of events to commemorate the pioneering work of the Woking Muslim Mission in introducing Islam to the West.
All are welcome to attend on any or all of the three days of this programme irrespective of their creed or affiliation, and we should like to take the opportunity to extend an invitation in particular to representatives of the Woking news media and British national news media to cover the proceedings at the H. G. Wells Conference and Events Centre, Woking and the tour of Muslim heritage sites.
This is an opportunity to learn more about this organisation’s distinctive vision of Islam and to discover the fundamental and indispensable part it played in the remarkable early history of the propagation of Islam in the West and the origins of British Islam.

The Ahmadiyya Association for the Propagation of Islam (Ahmadiyya Anjuman Ishaʻat Islam) was established in Lahore in 1914 to promote the informed understanding of Islam in the West. In the UK it operated the Shah Jehan Mosque in Woking until the early 1960s. Its new headquarters is at Dar-us-Salaam,
15 Stanley Avenue, Wembley, HA0 4JQ, UK. In 1924, in Berlin, it built the first mosque in Continental Europe of the modern era. The German Government recognises the Berlin Mosque as part of the German national heritage. From its European and other centres around the world this organisation has taught that Islam promotes peace, harmony and mutual respect between all communities and nationalities.
