Muhammad Ali (/mɔːˈlɑːnə mʊˈhɑːməd ɑːˈl/; Arabic: محمد على‎‎‎; 1874 – 13 October 1951) was an Indian writer, scholar, and leading figure of the Lahore Ahmadiyya Movement.

Biography[edit]

Ali was born in Murar, Kapurthala State (now in Ludhiana district, Punjab, India) in 1874. He obtained an M.A. in English and a LL.B. in 1899. He joined the Ahmadiyya Movement in 1897 and dedicated his life to the service of the movement as part of what he saw as a restored and pristine Islamic faith. Some Muslim scholars and jurists, on the other hand, have considered the Ahmadiyya to be outside of mainstream Islam or even heretical.[1] He died in Karachi on October 13, 1951, and is buried in Lahore.
