Dealer Notes
Al-Hajj Hedley Cole Churchward (Mahmoud Mobarek) (1862 Walmer, Kent–28 August 1929 Johannesburg), was an English set designer and painter, notable for converting to Islam and in 1910 being the first known British Muslim to make the Hajj. His many visits to Cairo led to his marrying Gadijah Salie (1869–1942), the daughter of a Shafi Jurist of Al-Azhar.[13] After his conversion he planned on making the Hajj to Mecca, amidst doubts expressed by the British Embassy in Cairo. He was subjected to a lengthy examination by the Qadi of Egypt to determine the extent of his faith and knowledge. Passing the test, he received a testimonial ornately endorsed by the chief Ottoman cleric, leading scholars and imams, certifying his suitability for the pilgrimage.
