The Earl of Wessex greeted by Hadhrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad, International Head of Ahmadiyya Muslim Community.

HRH, the Earl of Wessex, Prince Edward today paid a visit to the Fazl Mosque in South West London. The Fazl Mosque, commonly known as the ‘London Mosque’ is owned by the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community and is London’s oldest mosque.

Prince Edward arrived at 11.20am and was greeted by a delegation of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community, led by its Khalifa, Hadhrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad, who is the worldwide spiritual leader of the community.

The Earl of Wessex was attending in his capacity as a Patron of ‘The London Gardens Society’ and thus took the opportunity to inspect the gardens of the Fazl Mosque, which has won numerous awards over the past few years. The Earl was also able to view a small exhibition about the history of the mosque.

The Earl was accompanied throughout the visit by Hadhrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad, who himself has a keen interest and expertise in horticulture. The Earl also viewed the actual mosque and was keen to learn of its history. He was also able to view a private garden within the complex where he was pleased to see a large cherry tree cultivated under the supervision of Hadhrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad over the past few years.

Hadhrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad also informed the Earl about how the Ahmadiyya Khilafat has been based in the UK since 1984 due to the persecution faced by the Jama’at in Pakistan.


This has been announced in a Press Release by the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community.  Read more:

  1. Very well reported and very enlightening about how the British society at large and royal family in particular are keen to foster cultural harmony between different sections of society. Britain is Ahmadis second home, and I believe Britain needs the prayers of the Ahmadis all over the world. May God protect those who have granted protection to Ahmadis.
