Dear Brother in Islaam, I think you misspelled Jamal ad-Din al-Afghani with Jalaludin al Afghani. There is a difference of opinion if Jamal ad-Din al-Afghani was a Shia or Sunni. However, Afghani and Muhammed Abduh were puppets of British and they are considered to be the founding fathers of Salafi movement.
والسلام
