Mir Nasir Nawab (born 1846, died September 1924) (see Dard page 132, see also ROR of Nov-1924), was the father-in-law of Mirza Ghulam Ahmad circa 1884, it seems that he 10-15 years younger than MGA. He worked for the British government in an official capacity. He worked in the “irrigation department” and even worked in and around Qadian from 1866 -onward (see Dard, page 70)(also see Dr. Basharat Ahmad, Mujadid e azam, page 180, vol-1). This is the famous father-in-law who told the world that MGA thought he had contracted Cholera as he gasped for air and eventually breathed his last.  It is also important to note that he didn’t accept MGA’s claims in 1891, however, after a few years, he eventually accepted them. Its unclear whether his daughter (MGA’s 2nd wife) ever signed MGA’s bait form. His daughter was the famous Nusrat Jehan Begum who married MGA as a child marriage in 1884. He also had 2 sons, Dr. Mir Muhammad Isma’il and Mir Muhammad Ishaq. Ahmadiyya sources claim that he has become Ahmadi by October of 1891, he was mentioned in the famous list of the first 313 Ahmadi’s of 1896, he is listed as #25, as Sayyid Nasir Nawab, Dehlvi, Qadiani (see page 845, Life of Ahmad). He is mentioned extensively in the ROR of Aug-1939 and Nov-1939.
_____________________________________________________________________________________________Mir Nasir Nawab met Mirza Ghulam Ahmad’s father and worked with MGA’s brother

Sometime before 1883, Mirza Nasir Nawab worked on the canals in and around Qadian and eventually visited the house where MGA lived. He was a guest of Mirza Ghulam Qadir, MGA’s eldest brother. He seems to have met the entire family at Qadian, even MGA’s father, as well as MGA’s sons, Mirza Sultan Ahmad and Mirza Fazl Ahmad.
_____________________________________________________________________________________________Manshure-Muhammadi Newspaper of 10-25-1874 mentions Mirza Sultan Ahmad and Mir Nasir Nawab
Dard tells us:

“””The Manshur-e-Muhammadi Vol. 3, No. 24, dated 13 Ramadan, 1291, (25. 10. 1874) contains a note from Mirza Sultan Ahmad to the effect that through the efforts of Mir Nasir Nawab a Hindu of Sathyali, Bansi Dhar by name, who was secretary to the then canal contractor, had been converted to Islam and given the Muslim name of Abdul Haq.””””
Mir Nasir Nawab become a really close family friend, roughly 1877

Through the pages of Dard, (70-75) it is explained how Mir Nasir Nawab first met MGA and his wife and their entire family. Mirza Nasir Nawab knew that MGA wasn’t taking care of his children and lived a life of comfort instead. He seems to have seen giving his daughter away as a positive economic idea. He gave his daughter in marriage and gained lots of land through his grandchildren and etc.
Mir Nasir Nawab asks MGA to marry his daughter

Dard tells us that Mir Nasir Nawab asked MGA to marry his daughter and MGA showed up to Delhi within a week (see Dard page 133). Without any delay. MGA was older then Mir Nasir Nawab, this was a very odd match, the underlying reason was most likely that MGA’s brother had died and lots of the family land had been given to MGA and his eldest son Mirza Sultan Ahmad, who was the family representative to the British Govt and he worked for the Govt.
_____________________________________________________________________________________________1884-Nov, MGA gets married to the daughter of Mir Nasir Nawab

The month wherein BA-vol-4 was published is unknown, Ahmadis will never tell, however, in November of 1884, MGA was married to Nusrat Jehan Begum (see Dard, page 133). Mir Nasir Nawab seems to have disappeared from the scene for the next 6-7 years, he shows up again in late-1891, MGA had already claimed to be Esa (as), and he visited Mir Nasir Nawab, who was working in Patiala at the time (see dard, page 299). The ROR of Nov-1939 tells the world that they were married on Monday, 27th of Muharram, 1302, which is a Saturday, and the date is November 15, 1884.

Mir Nasir Nawab outwardly opposes MGA, as MGA claimed to be the Messiah. Mir Nasir Nawab doesn’t attend the bait ceremony in February of 1889 and works with Syed Muhammad Hussain Batalvi and other Ahl-e-Hadith Muslims to oppose MGA. He even writes satirical poetry about MGA and has it published in the Ahl-e-hadith magazine, The Ishaat us Sunnah.
_____________________________________________________________________________________________1891–Oct 28th

MGA flees from Delhi after his loss in his written debate with Maulvi Muhammad Bashir Bhopali, with the excuse that his father-in-law, Mir Nasir Nawab is sick and thus MGA and his team arrived in Patiala on roughly Oct-30th, 1891.

Although he didn’t attend the first Jalsa, he is mentioned in the book, “Asmani Faisalah”. He is mentioned as someone who has lots of copies of MGA’s books, Fath-e-
Islam and Taudih-e-Maram, at one rupee each, and also some copies of the book Izala-e-Auham, at 3 rupees each. Postal charges are not included. These can be obtained from Mir Nasir Nawab, draughtsman, Canals Department, Patiala. This book is published in May of 1892.
_____________________________________________________________________________________________At the Jalsa of 1892, Mir Nasir Nawab accepts MGA as the Promised Messiah

Dard tells us that Mir Nasir Nawab didn’t accept MGA or take his bait in 1889, nor did he accept his claims in 1891. As he attended the Jalsa of 1892, in Qadian, he seems to have converted to Ahmadiyya and left Islam. He had also been working with the famous Muhammad Hussain Batalvi in opposition to MGA for almost 2 years and seems to have abruptly changed his mind.  However, Mir Nasir Nawab worked with Batalvi for about 1-year in opposition to MGA and even wrote satirical poetry vs. MGA (see Dr. Basharat Ahmad, page 437,
_____________________________________________________________________________________________September 1895, Mir Nasir Nawab accompanies MGA to see the Chola of Baba Nanak

By 1895, Mirza Nasir Nawab appears to be securely in the inner-circle of Ahmadiyya, Dard tells us that MGA and many others including Mir Nasir Nawab, travelled to see the clothing of Baba Nanak and etc.

He was mentioned in the famous list of the first 313 Ahmadi’s of 1896, he is listed as #25, as Sayyid Nasir Nawab, Dehlvi, Qadiani (see page 845, Life of Ahmad).
_____________________________________________________________________________________________1900-1901 and the case of the Wall

Dard tells us that Mir Nasir Nawab helped MGA in his case against his cousins. He had helped in creating a site-plan for the property (see Dard, page 716). He also seems to be a worker around Qadian in that era, Dard doesn’t tell us as to when he retired from Government service.

Other Ahmadi sources tell us that Mir Nasir Nawab retired from Govt. service and moved permanently to Qadian in roughly 1900-1901 (see video on  

A poem of his is published in “Tuhfatun-Nadwah” (1902).
_____________________________________________________________________________________________1906–Mir Nasir Nawab’s eldest son goes to Medical College in Lahore

Dr. Mir Muhammad Ismail is sent from Qadian to Lahore to complete his studies in the hope that he can become a doctor someday.

MGA has a dream about Mir Nasir Nawab

1906—“”I saw in my dream that Mir Nasir Navvab had come carrying a fruit-bearing tree upon the palm of his hand and when he gave it to me, it became a large tree resembling a mulberry tree. It was very green and heavily laden with fruit and flowers. Its fruit was very sweet and, strangely enough, even its flowers were sweet. It was not an ordinary tree; it was a tree the like of which has never been seen in this world. I was eating its fruit and flowers when I woke up.  I consider that Mir Nasir Navvab means God the Helper, and the meaning of the dream is that God will help in a manner that will be extraordinary.”””

[Badr, vol. 2, no. 11, March 16, 1906, p. 2 and al-Hakam, vol. 10, no. 9, March 17, 1906, p. 1]
1907-Mir Nasir Nawab clashes with the Sadr Anjuman

Mir Nasir Nawab, father-in-law of the Promised Messiah, opposed a certain decision of the Anjuman. When this disagreement was brought to the notice of the Promised Messiah, he wrote down the following verdict about the authority of the Anjuman, in his own hand-writing:

“My view is that when the Anjuman reaches a decision in any matter, doing so by majority of opinion, that must be considered as right, and as absolute and binding. I would, however, like to add that in certain religious matters, which are connected with the particular objects of my advent, I should be kept informed. I am sure that this Anjuman would never act against my wishes, but this is written only by way of precaution, in case there is a matter in which God Almighty has some special purpose. This proviso applies only during my life. After that, the decision of the Anjuman in any matter shall be final.Was-salaam. Mirza Ghulam Ahmad, 27 October 1907.”

1912—Mir Nasir Nawab accompanied Mirza Mahmud Ahmad for Hajj in 1912

Mahmud Ahmad went for Hajj in 1912

The history of #Ahmadiyya in modern day #SaudiArabia

Mahmud Ahmad tells us that in 1912, Mir Nasir Nawab met Mahmud Ahmad in Mecca as they both performed Hajj(See Truth about the Split, page 157). Mahmud Ahmad claims that Mir Nasir Nawab was told by the Khalifa (noorudin) that it was OK to read prayers behind non-Ahmadi Imams whilst in Mecca, and all the Ahmadis did so. However, Mahmud Ahmad only did it since it was ordered…he wasn’t sincere…hence, he re-did all of those fake prayers(See Mahmud Ahmad, truth about the split, page 157-160). Some prophecies of Mirza Basheer ud Din Mahmud Ahmad were published by the 1st Khalifa in the Al-Badr (See ROR of Dec-1919).


He sides with the Qadiani-Ahmadi’s and remains in Qadian.

_____________________________________________________________________________________________ 1924
He died in Sept 1924

Per 12-7-16, Dard is the only source that gives us this data. 3 years later, his autobiography is published from Qadian, with the famous Ahmadi Scholar, Sheikh Yaqub Ali Irfani as the writer.  This is where the famous quote comes in wherein MGA seems to scream to his father-in-law that he has contracted Cholera…MGA died just a few hours later.

He is mentioned extensively in the ROR of Aug-1939.
