The Shahjahan Mosque in Woking is the oldest purpose built mosque in Britain. This illustrated book traces the history of the mosque from its conception, through to its construction and modern uses. Chronologically narrating the history of the Shahjahan Mosque, this book also demonstrates the individuals which have had a lasting impact on its history, including its founder, the linguist Dr Gottlieb Wilheim Leitner; the projects financier, the lady Sultan Shahjahan Begum of Bhopal and the man who revived the mosque after Leitner's death, Khawaja Kamaluddin. This book will fascinate those interested in Woking's cultural and religious history, but will also appeal to those interested in a broader history of Muslim Britain.
