“One of the early members of the Theosophical Society became the first prominent white American Muslim convert, a man named Alexander Russell Webb, initially began taking a serious interest in Islam after starting a correspondence with Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad (a.s) in late 1886. In this correspondence, which lasted several months, Webb showed enthusiasm for spreading Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad’s (a.s) ideas and was invited to Qadian to study under the teacher. Later he was able to visit India and between 1893 and 1897, Webb led the first major Islamic movement in America.” Said Mary- Jo, director of the Theosophical society’ in her welcome address. ​
