Year: August 1922 – November 1924 (Missionary Incharge from September 1922 to February 1923)

Misbahuddin Sahib was born in October 1899. He studied in his own villiage. Later on to get
further education, he went to Sialkot. As he was very punctual in his prayers, he started looking
for a mosque. He found one where Hazrat Maulvi Faiz Uddinra was the Imam of the mosque.
Therefore, his whole time would be spent in the company of Faiz Uddinra. As his knowledge
increased, so did his spiritual side which lead him to accept the Imam of the age, the Promised
Messiahas.

First Khalifa and Qadian


In 1910, Misbahuddin Sahib went to Qadian and presented himself for the service of Islam. He was fortune enough to do bait at the hands of the first Khalifa. Misbahuddin Sahib was then admitted to Taleem-Ul-Islam High School. He also had the opportunity to join Quran classes with Hazrat Maulana Hakeem Nur Uddin Sahibra. In school, Mian Abdul Hai, the son of Hazrat Khalifatul Massih Al-Awwalra, was a classmate and steadily this relationship developed into a profound kinship. Subsequently, going back and forth to the place of Hazrat Khalifatul Massih Al-Awwalra turned into a day-to-day daily practice. Huzoorra and Hazrat Aman janra became compassionate to such an extent that they gave him the honour by calling him their own son.

Departure of Hazrat Misbahuddin Sahibra to England


On August 14, 1922, Hazrat Khalifatul Masih Al-Thani, the promised sonra sent the honourable
Sardar Misbahuddin Sahib from Qadian to work in the London Mission. In those days, Mubarak
Ali Sahib Bengali was serving as Imam Masjid Fazl and Mubaligh in charge in London. Misbah
Uddin Sahib arrived in London with the appointment order of Hazrat Mirza Bashir Uddin
Mahmood Ahmadra which he wrote himself. In this order, Mubarak Ali Sahib was also told to go
to Germany. So, this was his first appointment for religious service under which he was in charge
of the London Mission.

Invitation to Ahmadiyyat to the King of Jordan

Hazrat Sardar Misbah Uddin Sahibra has written that;

The measures that the preachers had implemented earlier were continued. A series of weekly meetings continued at the mission house for further contact with the acquaintances. The Jamaat’s literature was not readily available at the time, therefore this gathering was the best means of conveying the message. A personal mention of the invitation was made in lieu of that. Tabligh was also continued in Hyde Park. In addition to this, attention was paid to obtaining opportunities to deliver invitations to Ahmadiyyat.

So one such opportunity presented itself when King Abdullah Pasha, the ruler of Jordan, came to London. I requested a meeting with him after reading about it in the papers, and he gladly agreed and arranged the meeting. At the time there were only five people involved in the mission in this country.Aziz Din Sahib was the manager of Sialkot manufactured sports goods. The second is the son of Hazrat Nawab Muhammad Ali Khan Sahibra, Mian Abdul Rahim Sahib Khalid who was a student, the third Seth Abdullah Alahuddin Sahib, the son of Sikandarabad, Ali Muhammad Abdullah Sahib who was also a student, the fourth Raja Muhammad Ahmad Janjua Sahib. We reached the ruler of Jordan with a five-member delegation to convey the invitation. They greeted each other warmly.

At that moment in time, an Arabic speech was being prepared. In it, there was a description of the coming of the Promised Messiahas and the proofs of his truthfulness. Since Mian Abdul Rahim Khalid Sahib was in the delegation, he specifically mentioned the signs of the Promised Messiahas which was related to His Holiness. Alhamdulillah! The king of Jordan took spiritual influence from the mention of the Promised Messiahas and expressed his happiness. When conversing with the king, data of the community was also mentioned alongside with the breadth of its message. On this occasion, Ijaz Ahmadi and Al-Istifta which are the books of the Promised Messiahas were present were presented to the king. Alhamdulillah!  We were given an opportunity to preach to an Arab ruler.

Return of Hazrat Mirza Bashir Uddin Mahmood Ahmadra to Qadian

After the blessed foundation stone ceremony of Masjid Fazl London, the historic speech at the Wembley conference and the completion of the preaching mission of his establishment, Huzoorra went back to his home land and invited Hazrat Maulvi Abdul Rahim Nair Sahib and Sardar Misbahuddin Sahib to his home. He instructed to go back home together. Thus, after two and a half years as a preacher in England, Sardar Sahib returned to Qadian as a travelling companion, of the Huzoorra.

Respected Sardar Sahib’s Last moments

On 1st August 1988, Sardar Sahib’s health began to deteriorate. He was taken to the hospital but after two days the hospital said to take me back home. After coming home, the situation worsened and he passed away.
