Intro
In 1924, after arriving in Egypt on 7-28-1924, the 2nd Khalifa and his team began their travel by road to Jerusalem and Damascus on 7-31-1924. He seems to have stayed for a week, this was French controlled Syria and the French were weary of the Ahmadi’s. He traveled to Damascus by train where he is reported to have attracted publicity as well as some opposition (see “Near East & India”. London. September 11, 1924). He discussed the claims of the founder of the Community, Mirza Ghulam Ahmad, with leading scholars, and other intellectual figures from Damascus (see “Akhbaar Al-Qabas”. August 8, 1924. Retrieved October 1, 2016).

In 1925, two missionaries were sent to Syria, Jalal ud Din Shams and Sayyid Zayn al’Abidin Waliullah Shah. Jalal ud Din Shams was stabbed in 1927, Sayyid Zayn al’Abidin Waliullah Shah was giving lectures at a local college and was called back to Qadian. In March of 1928, Jalal ud Din Shams is forced to flee Syria altogether and finds shelter in British controlled Israel, close to Haifa.

This history of Ahmadiyya in Syria ends in 1929, in 1955, Zafrullah Khan shows up with the Khalifa and commits fornication with a lebanese woman. In 1958, via the famous book, Our Foreign Missions, 1961 edition, by Mirza Mubarak Ahmad, the Ahmadiyya claims that they have a murrabi working in the country by the name of Syyed Munir-al-Hassani, however, this seems to be a lie. In 2021, Humanity First Canada has been trying to work in Syria and use their NGO to get converts.

The ROR of Nov-Dec-1918 reports that Brother Abdul Karim (who was working in Egypt) is in Syria and distributing Ahmadiyya literature.

1921

In the Feb-1921 edition of the ROR, it is mentioned that an Ahmadi named Sayyid Zayn al’Abidin Waliullah Shah has been living in Syria for the past 6 years has a small letter posted as well as correspondence with potential converts (a man named Mustafa Khalid) in Lebanon.

1924

In 1924, the Ahmadiyya Khalifa traveled from India to England and stopped in Egypt, Damascus and why?


After WW-2, the Khalifa stops in on 7-31-1924 they travel to Jerusalem and Damascus from Egypt. This is French controlled Syria (See the ROR of Sep-1924).

1925

In 1925, two missionaries were sent to Syria, Jalal ud Din Shams and Sayyid Zayn al’Abidin Waliullah Shah. The ROR of 1931 tells us that he arrived in Damascus, Syria in July of 1925. However, Mirza Tahir Ahmad claims that it was late in 1924 (See “From Rabwah to Tel Aviv (1976)). The October edition of the ROR tell us that the 2 ahmadi missionaries had arrived.

Jalal ud Din Shams is living in Syria. Maulvi Sayyid Zayn al’Abidin Waliullah Shah himself was able to obtain a position of lectureship at the “Sultania College” in Damascus for period of time before his return to Qadian, the then international headquarters of the Ahmadiyya movement. Following his return, Shams was left alone in Damascus at the instruction of the caliph. He thus disappeared into the history of Ahmadiyya.

In this photo, the Ahmadiyya Movement made it look like people were converting to Ahmadiyyam, this is a lie and was done for the purposes of marketing.

A civil war erupts in Syria and the French government had asked Maulvi Jalal ud Din Shams to leave, however, he refused, they then forced him to leave on 3-9-1928, they demanded that he leave in 24 hours, which he did. Maulvi Jalal ud Din Shams was ordered by his Khalifa to move to Haifa, he arrived 8 days later on 3-17-1928. He ends up travelling directly to a small town area called Kababir. It seems that the British government purposely worked on getting the Muslims of Kababir to convert to Ahmadiyya en-masse. It was the Odeh family, many of them have left Ahmadiyya by 2019.

1929

The ROR made no mention of how Shams fled the country, instead, they claim that a man named Munir Effendi ul Hasni is the Amir of the Ahmadiyya Movement. However, this is a total lie.

1933

Maulvi Abul Ata Allah Ditta is mentioned in the ROR of Sep-1933, one of his letters was published in the Al-Fazl of Aug-10-1933 and also published in the ROR. He is working out of Egypt, Syria and Palestine. He claims to have held a debate with Bahai’s and Sunni Muslims. He even met the famous Shoghi Effendi (the leader of the Bahai’s and Abdul Baha’s grandson). Maulvi Abul Ata Allah Ditta alleges that 8 people from Cairo, Egypt have converted to Ahmadiyya.

Maulvi Abul Ata Allah Ditta’s missionary work in Egypt, Syria and Palestine (and modern day Lebanon) is mentioned in the ROR of Dec-1933. He alleges that 7 men have converted to Ahmadiyya, 4 of which who are from Cairo, Egypt. 2 from Lebanon and 1 from what seems like Palestine. Maulvi Abul Ata Allah Ditta claims to have had 3 more controversies with the local Muslims. Maulvi Abul Ata Allah Ditta claims that Muslims are afraid to debate Ahmadi’s. He claims to have confronted a Muslim named Shaikh Muhammad Al-Hafiz on the “Finality of the Holy Prophet’s Prophethood”. Maulvi Abul Ata Allah Ditta claims that Syrian Muslims from the USA have written to him about Ahmadiyya and the arabic Ahmadiyya newspaper, Almobashirat.
Maulvi Abul Ata Allah Ditta claims that a man named Sheikh Abdur Rahman Berja (modern day Lebanon) has sent him a report on his tabligh activities therein. An Ahmadi from Syria also mailed a report to Maulvi Abul Ata Allah Ditta, who is working out of the Ahmadiyya temple at Kababir, Haifa, Palestine (modern day Israel). Maulvi Abul Ata Allah Ditta reports that Ahmadi’s were beat up in Cairo. Maulvi Abul Ata Allah Ditta also reports how 3 newspapers have mentioned Ahmadiyya after these fights, they are, “As-Siyyasat”, ‘Al-Ehram” and “Almanar”.
He also mentions how the mosque in Kababir hasn’t been opened yet.

1934

In an official document presented to the Governor General of India, the Ahmadiyya Movement and the 2nd Khalifa claim to have many local converts to Ahmadiyya (See ROR of April-1934).

Syria is mentioned in the ROR of May-1934. Sufi Muti-ur-Rahman Bengali mentions how there are lots of Syrian Muslims in his living area (in the usa) and he has targeted them for conversion. It is also mentioned how the Ahmadi missionary Maulana Abul Ata is working in the country and has secured converts.

The ROR of Dec-1934 spells his name as follows, Maulvi Abul Ata Allah Ditta, and gives his letter/report which was written on Sep-10, 1934. Maulvi Abul Ata claims to have converted a man named Sayyad Ahmad Effendi Zehri and then engaging in debates with his wife, who is Christian. He also claims to have some Ahmadiyya literature published in Hebrew and he reports that he had a debate with a Jewish man in this connection. He seems to travel to Egypt as needed for tabligh work. He claims to have had a controversy with a man named Reverend Serjuis and challenged him through local newspapers like alkashkol. In another letter, he tells about an Ahmadiyya Press that has been setup as well as many other administrative offices. He also claims that the Ahmadiyya newspaper, “Albushra” will publish its first edition in January of 1935, it is an arabic only newspaper and will have circulation in Egypt, Syria and Palestine.

Zafrullah Khan’s final marriage was in 1955, a short lived and haraam marriage, with a Lebanese girl named Bushra Rabbani, who was living in Syria at the time. Zafrullah Khan stopped in during his trip to London (we don’t know if it was coming or going)(see “Ahmadiyya Movement: British-Jewish Connections” by Bashir Ahmad [1995], pages 325-326). Its unclear how and when he met up with the Khalifa.

7 May 1955: Hazrat Musleh-e-Maud (ra) arrived at Beirut, Lebanon, and went to visit the ancient remains of the Baalbek.
