Intro
Seth Abdullah Allahdin (or spelled Alladin). Abdullah Alladin wrote “The Claims and Teachings of Ahmad, the Promised Messiah and Mahdi” published as a second edition in 1917, from Secunderabad, India, which is central India. He had converted to Ahmadiyya in 1915 (see the ROR of June-1915) from Aga Khan shia-sim and via Mufti Muhammad Sadiq, Hafiz Roshan Ali and a local Ahmadi named Basharat Ahmad spent 6 weeks in convincing him to join the Qadian branch of Ahmadi’s.

This proves that Ahmadiyya had spread to deep South Central and East British-India by 1917 (just a few Ahmadi’s). The title of this book also lists how there is an Ahmadiyya Jamaat book depot in Ceylon (slave island), which is modern day Sri Lanka. His father devoted a large part of his wealth to the Mirza family (see page 53). He begins to show up in the ROR in the late 1910’s and donated heavily towards Ahmadiyya. The Jan-1918 edition of the ROR reproduced many pages from his famous book, “Claims and Teachings of Ahmad” (1916) as well as the July-1918 edition of the ROR. In 1922, he wrote a translation of the Quran in english, a sort of translation with hadith, however, he only picked certain verses of the Quran. His son is the famous astronomer  Dr. Hafiz Saleh Muhammad Alladin.

Via the Oct-Nov-edition of the ROR and al-hakam:

“”””Among honorary workers, the name of Seith Abdullah Allah Din of Sikandrabad deserves special mention. He is filled with great zeal for the propagation of the truth taught by the Ahmadiyya Community and has spent thousands of rupees in publishing and distributing Ahmadiyya literature. He has only recently succeeded in winning over a learned Imam of Sikandrabad whom he now wishes to employ as an Ahmadi preacher and has asked him to prepare himself for that purpose. It is gratifying to learn that many a seeker after truth has benefited by the literature published by our brother and Ahmadi preachers are making the best use of his publications. They are mostly English and Gujrati translations of the writings of the Promised Messiah.”””
