The Woking Muslim Mission was founded by Khwaja Kamal-ud-Din in 1913 at the Woking Mosque in Woking, Surrey. Its chief objective was to present the religion of Islam to the people of Britain, to refute the criticism of Islam and its Holy Prophet appearing commonly in the press and publications, and to remove deep-seated misconceptions about Islam and Muslims prevalent in the Western mind. The Mission also served as the U.K. national centre for Muslims and Islamic-related activities for over fifty years till the mid-1960s. The influence and work of this Mission also benefitted many other countries all over the world. It won a large number of converts to Islam in Britain and elsewhere.
