Queen Elizabeth II Replies to Letter Sent by Head of Ahmadiyya Muslim Community

Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II




18TH July, 2012

Your Holiness,

The Queen has asked me to thank you for your letter which accompanied the beautiful gifts that your delegation, headed by Mr. Rafiq Hayat Amir, the National President, of Ahmadiyya Muslim Association UK, so kindly brought to Buckingham Palace on 13th July. Her Majesty was most interested to see a copy of the book entitled A Gift for The Queen written by the Founder of the Ahmadiyya Community, Hadhrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad of Qadian for the Diamond Jubilee of Queen Victoria. I am to convey the Queen’s thanks and warm good wishes to you and to all the Members of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Association UK for your thoughtfulness.

In your letter you mention your endeavours to promote enduring peace and a request for Her Majesty to encourage followers of all religions to show mutual tolerance and respect. While this is not a matter on which The Queen would personally comment, I am sure you are aware that at a recent Diamond Jubilee multi-faith reception at Lambeth Palace in London, Her Majesty and The Duke of Edinburgh met with representatives of eight non-Christian religions to celebrate the diversity of faiths within the United Kingdom.

Her Majesty was grateful for the assurance of your prayers and your kind words sent on the occasion of The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee were much appreciated.

I enclose a message from Her Majesty in return.

Yours Sincerely,

Doug King

Assistant Private Secretary to The Queen




His Holiness Mirza Masroor Ahmad,

Khalifatul Masih V.

  • I was thrilled to see the Queen, Her Majesty’s beautiful response to our Spiritual Leader. I personally would like to wish her all the best on her Golden Jubilee. May the Good Lord give her good health, strength and a long life. Ameen.

  • My heartiest congratulations on Her Majesty the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee and deepest regards on the Queen’s reply in response to the letter by Hudhur-e-Aqdas(aba). I am indebted with thanks for peace and harmony that the United Kingdom is providing to people of all religions and sects living there.

  • Allah is Great, Allah is Great. He is the One Who Guides and takes the work from His chosen ones. InshaAllah the day is very near when the world will recognise Mirza Ghulam Ahmad Sahib of Qadian, the Promised Messiah(as) and accept him.

    That day peace will prevail, InshaAllah and every one will say ‘Love for All Hatred for None.’

    Allah Bless Us All. Ameen.

  • Allah is Great! The message of Hadhrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad(as) shall be conveyed to the corners of the world through his Khulafa. Long live Hadhrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad(aba). Long live Queen of England. Ameen.
