He was born in 1856 (MGA is reported to have said in Seeratul Mahdi that he was 16 years old when Mirza Sultan Ahmad was born), this also proves that MGA was born in 1840. Mirza Sultan Ahmad was thus the eldest surviving son, representative of the family to the British Government. His mother is Hurmat bibi, whom MGA would call “Pajjay dee ma”.

Dard was forced to promote the idea that MGA was born in 1835, thus, he tells us that MGA was 16 when he got married, which indirectly lands on 1851 as MGA’s year of marriage and 1853 as the year that Mirza Sultan Ahmad was born via Dard (see page 38) . “The Punjab Chiefs”, 1909 edition erroneously wrote that he was born in 1876. Furthermore, he was writing essays in the mid 1870’s and sending them to newspapers. In 1883, when MGA’s brother died, Mirza Sultan Ahmad became the head of the family, he had been adopted by his uncle, since his uncle’s only child (son) died in 1868 (his name was Abdul Qadir)(See Punjab Chiefs, 1890 edition). In the same time-frame (1883-1884)(MGA mentions this story) he entered government service as a “Naib-tahsilidar”, which in english is “Assistant-Regional-Tax Collector”, he held this position til at least 1890. He also married the daughter of Mirza Imam ud Din, who was an enemy of MGA over the Muhammadi Begum saga. Which means that the Mirza family always had at least one family member in government service. By 1909, he was ‘Extra-Assistant-Commissioner”, this is still a person who makes sure that land-taxes are properly collected. Thus, people would almost worship Mirza Sultan Ahmad and the entire Mirza family. MGA was never considered for government service since his mental state was known to all. He also the official “lambardar” of Qadian. That means that all property taxes were collected by him and then turned in to the British government. However, Mirza Sultan Ahmad doesn’t actually collect the taxes from land in Qadian, his uncle, Nizam ud Din collects it on his behalf. Nizam ud Din was the cousin of MGA, the brother of Imam-ud-Din and thus the uncle of Mirza Sultan Ahmad, Griffin erroneously writes that Nizam ud Din is the cousin of Mirza Sultan Ahmad. We are unsure as to when Nizam ud Din took over, however, the case of the wall seems strange when you consider who was collecting tax. Mirza Sultan Ahmad was barely ever in Qadian and left MGA alone. And finally, his son seems to have converted to Ahmadiyya in 1906.

During the Muhammadi Begum saga, despite the fact that MGA disinherited him in the early 1890’s as a reprisal for non-cooperation in the father’s quest to marry Muhammadi Begum, he still lived a luxurious life. When he died in 1931, it is unclear as to who inherited his property and etc. Ahmadiyya sources claim that he died on 2 July 1931.
His wives and children

His first wife seems to have died by roughly 1883, he then married his first-cousin, the daughter of Imam ud Din, Dard doesn’t give the year. The year is important since if it was before the Muhammadi Begum Saga or after, it makes a big difference. We suspect that it was in 1883.

Mirza Sultan Ahmad had 2 sons, one was Mirza Aziz Ahmad and the other was Mirza Rashid Ahmad. Mirza Rashid Ahmad (born in 1903) was married to Amtul Salam Sahiba, they had a daughter that was eventually married Mirza Tahir Ahmad. Her name was Asifa Begum (married to mirza tahir ahmad 1957–1992), they were married on the 5th of December, 1957, before Mirza Tahir Ahmad left for the UK, she was married to Mirza Tahir Ahmad for 35 years. They had 4 daughters, Shaukat Jehan, Faiza, Yasmin Rehman Mona, Atiatul Mujib Tooba and one daughter who died in infancy. Asifa Begum died of pancreatic cancer on April 3rd,1992.

_____________________________________________________________________________________________The 1865 pension incident, Mirza Sultan Ahmad was roughly 9 years old

A young Mirza Ghulam Ahmad squandered his families pension money and was punished by never being able to see his mother again


Dard tells us that Mirza Sultan Ahmad wrote articles in defense of Islam and had them published by a newspaper, the Mushur-e-Muhammadi. See Dard, page 57. Mirza Sultan Ahmad’s essays were published in these editions, Manshur-e-Muhammadi (Vol. 3, No. 23; Vol. 5, No. 1; Vol. 5, No. 4; Vol. 5, No. 13; Vol. 6, Nos. 2 &. 30).
_____________________________________________________________________________________________1883, Mirza Qadir Ahmad died abruptly, Mirza Sultan Ahmad takes control of the Mirza estate

As soon as MGA’s father died (1876), MGA’s cousins filed legal suit against Mirza Qadir Ahmad and the Mirza Ghulam Murtaza estate. They seem to have won the case by 1883, and thus caused their cousin, Mirza Ghulam Qadir to die abruptly. He was barely 50 years old at that this time.

His first wife seems to have died. Its unknown if he had children with her or the second wife.
_____________________________________________________________________________________________Roughly 1884, Mirza Sultan Ahmad was testing for the post of tahsildar
Mirza Sultan Ahmad was the family representative to the British Govt.

“””I remember that about three months ago my son wrote to me that he had appeared in the competitive examination for the post of tahsildar and he asked me to pray that he might be successful and emphasized his request with great humility and earnestness. Rather than being sympathetic, I reacted angrily upon reading the letter because of his great concern and anxiety about a worldly matter. Immediately after reading it, I destroyed the letter with great dislike and aversion, being reluctant to make a supplication in respect of a worldly affair to my Lord. As soon as I destroyed the letter, I received the revelation :

[Urdu] Will be successful.

This wonderful revelation was also communicated to several people and in fact he succeeded in the examination. [Allah be praised for this].

[Letter dated May 11, 1884, addressed to Navvab ‘Ali Muhammad Khan of Jhajjar and al-Hakam, vol. 3, no. 34 dated September 23, 1899, pp. 1, 2.] {{See also, 2009 online version of Tadhkirah, page 150-151}}
_____________________________________________________________________________________________His marriages

_____________________________________________________________________________________________Dard’s comments, see page 704:

“””Sultan Ahmad’s first wife has died and his present wife is the daughter of Imam Din, and his sister is Sultan Ahmad’s aunt. It is this aunt of Sultan Ahmad,who is Imam Din’s sister, that stops our people in conspiracy with Imam Din. I have also heard her with my own ears. Imam Din’s sister has said within my own hearing; “These people are the enemies of my brothers, Imam Din and Nizam Din. I am allied to my brothers, I do not want them to take water from this well, stop them.” I have heard her say so many times. Sultan Ahmad is against me. One reason for this is that he was adopted as a son by Mirza Ghulam Qadir and thus made a sharer of half of my property. It is therefore to his interest that he keeps with his aunt. The Ishtihar which the
defendant exhibits, dated May 2nd, 1891, is mine.”””
In 1892, MGA disowned his son and divorced his mother

As soon as Mirza Ahmad Baig married his daughter to Mirza Sultan Muhammad, MGA disowned his son, since he sided with ALL of MGA’s family as against MGA’s wedding proposal to Muhammadi Begum.

Mirza Basheer ud Din Mahmud Ahmad recalls how as a child he had to climb stairs next to the house of Mirza Sultan Ahmad Sahib to go on his roof top to play. The family had not yet accepted Ahmadiyyat and his aunt would always mock him in the vernacular. As his mother was Urdu-speaking he did not understand Punjabi very well at the time, so he asked his mother what was the meaning of the aunt’s remark. It was a derogatory remark meaning ‘like father like son’ drawing analogy with crows.
_____________________________________________________________________________________________ In 1904, Mirza Sultan Ahmad’s only sibling, Mirza Fazl Ahmad, died

Mirza Fazl Ahmad is a strange case, he doesn’t seem to have gotten married or had children.  He simply died in 1904 in Montogomery, India.

_____________________________________________________________________________________________1906, Mirza Sultan Ahmad’s son joins Ahmadiyya, and MGA calls his grandmother a prostitute

It is interesting to note the Mirza Sultan Ahmad’s son, Aziz Ahmad, seems to have become ahmadi in Feb 1906.   As per Ahmadiyya records…then they quickly fabricated up a dream of MGA to this effect:

“””The said dream has been published with a symbolic interpretation. He said clearly that he had seen ‘Aziz Ahmad son of Mirza Sultan Ahmad. (al-Hakam, March 10, 1906 page 1)”””
Mirza Sultan Ahmad’s son, Mirza Aziz Ahmad

His career

Mirza Sultan had a very successful career as a senior government administrator, rising to be Deputy Commissioner during the British Raj. The record of how he managed riots in the Punjab in the absence of the British administrator is quite flattering. In 1916, he is recorded as being Additional District Magistrate in Lahore (Paigham Sulh, 23 January, 1916, a Lahori periodical).

In addition to his career, he was also considered a distinguished literary figure in Lahore and is mentioned in several journals of the area.

He tried his best to stay at a distance from the religion founded by his father, and was never a member of his organisation, which was headed by his younger brother, Mirza Mahmud Ahmad, during the 1920s.
_____________________________________________________________________________________________ In the 1916 article mentioned above, he categorically and eloquently wrote:

“All the prophets gave good news of the coming of our Prophet, and our Prophet gave the good news of hundreds among his own followers who arose in Islam as abdal, aqtab, auliya [saints] and mujaddids [reformers]. … Prophethood was ended and spiritual benefits were made general in another form.”

Almost two years before his formal allegiance, in October 1928, he published this statement in Al Fazl:“I believe in all the claims of Hazrat Mirza Sahib and I am certain that he was true in his claim, was righteous and was commissioned by God Almighty. I am an Ahmadi by heart.”
1931-His death

Ahmadiyya sources claim that he died on 2 July 1931. See also (Tarikh-e-Ahmadiyyat, Vol. 5, p. 237)

At his deathbed 1931, when he was not in full control of his faculties, his wife was manipulated by the leadership of the Qadiani Ahmadiyya into signing an affidavit that Mirza Sultan Ahmad had been initiated into the Qadiani organization on his deathbed. It would be highly unbecoming of an established well-grounded person like him to have had a deathbed conversion.

14 years later Nawab Muhammad Ali Khan of Malerkotla died and was buried right next to him, and in Bahishti Maqbara. Its very odd that he was buried there since he didn’t do Wasiyyat.

See the photos on flickr. His son also has a testimony about this on flickr.
