Hajj Ahmad Thomson is a leading barrister and the head of Wynne Chambers. He specialises in the law relating to charities, wills, employment, discrimination and also Islamic law, and is considered a leading authority on drafting Islamic wills. He was a co-founder of the Association of Muslim Lawyers (UK) in 1993 and is secretary of Muslim Lawyers (Europe). He is the author of several books including the widely acclaimed Dajjal – The AntiChrist. He also writes regularly for the Al-Karam Journal.
Hajj Ahmad Thomson was born Martin Thomson in Northern Rhodesia (now Chipata, Zambia) and was brought up as a Christian. He was educated principally in Zimbabwe and later in England, obtaining a Bachelor of Laws degree with Honours from the University of Exeter and a Diploma in Law from the City University of London. In 1979 he was called to the Bar by the Honourable Society of Gray’s Inn. Growing up in Africa, the young Martin was not content with Christianity. He began asking himself questions such as “If everyone is equal before God, why did the black Africans have to attend a different church to the white Africans? If Jesus is God, to whom was he praying? If Jesus was God, and if Jesus was crucified, then who supported the heavens and the earth for three days?”
“By the age of 12”, says Ahmad, “I reached a stage where I believed in God and I believed in Jesus, but I was not so sure about the Christian church.” At this point in his life Ahmad had a lot of questions but could find few answers in Christianity, “I read widely. I thought about life. I visited different spiritual groups. I tried transcendental meditation for several months. It was calming, but my life-style did not change.
”It was through an encounter with Shaykh Dr Abdalqadir as-Sufi that Ahmad was introduced to Islam, something he had never really considered before. In Ahmad’s own words, “when I encountered Islam, I found the means to transformation that I needed.” Being in the company of and listening to the words of Shaykh Abdalqadir, Ahmad found that many of his questions were answered. He would find that from time to time he would visit Shaykh Abdalqadir’s centre and also read The Book of Strangers, written by Shaykh Abdalqadir.
Eventually Hajj Ahmad Thomson embraced Islam on 13th August 1973 at the hand of the Raja of Mahmudabad, the Director of the Islamic Cultural Centre. He has travelled the Muslim world extensively in search of knowledge. Recounting the time he accepted Islam, Ahmad says :
“At that point I realised that I knew very little indeed. I had accepted Islam, but I still had much to learn, because Islam is not just a matter of words. As the Prophet said, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, ‘The Shahada is easy on the tongue, but much flows from it.’ Ever since I said Shahada, I have lived every moment of my life finding out what it entails. It is a process that never ends.”
