About Chaudhry Abdul Hamid Sahib.

Chaudhry Abdul Hamid (Model Town,Lahore) Retired in 1969 as General Manager (Power) WAPDA after a successful career as a Professional Electrical Engineer. He graduated in Electrical Engineering in 1930 from London.U.K. and was the only Ahmadi Electrical Engineer who had reached the highest post while in Government Service.

He was born in 1907 and died 92 years later on December 18, 1999. He was a Musi.

While studying in college, Chaudhry Abdul Hamid Sahib accepted Ahmadiyyat at the blessed hands of Syedna Hazrat Mirza Bashir Ahmad Sahib (ra) Khalifatul Masih II  in 1923.

In the book “Tareekh-e-Rabwah”  Hazrat Musleh Maood(ra) mentions the great services offered by  Chaudhry Abdul Hamid Sahib. He had the honor of providing Electricity to Rabwah when he was Chief Engineer (Power) WAPDA at the time and was available to Jama’at whenever needed.

He was a very down to earth, compassionate and deeply devoted Ahmadi. He contributed generously in all chanda’s of the Jama’at including special projects such as Model Town Mosque. He had the opportunity to provide employment to numerous Ahmadis in WAPDA and cared immensely for the less fortunate.

Upon his demise, Syedna Hazrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad (aa), who was Nazer-e-Ala at that time, graciously led his funeral prayer. Hazrat Khalifatul Masih IV (rh) wrote to the family that had Hazoor (rh) been in Rabwah he would have led Chaudhry Abdul Hamid Sahib funeral prayers himself. Hazrat Khalifatul Masih IV (ra) offered funeral prayers in absentia in London.
