As we all know, Mirza Mubarak Ahmad was the youngest son of MGA. He died abruptly in 1907 and this death sent shock-waves through MGA and his followers, since MGA was always predicting the death of his opponents, thus this death, coupled with the death of Abdul Kareem made Ahmadis doubt the truthfulness of MGA. In fact, MGA was predicting his full recovery in the Al-Badr (See the ref in the below). MGA even tried to get him married to another toddler, nevertheless, he died. Another failed prophecy by MGA. One more thing, in 1899, MGA was calling Mirza Mubarak Ahmad as “Spark in the light of Allah” and claimed that he would cure people and his fame would spread throughout the world.
_____________________________________________________________________________________________Some Quotes that show that MGA added Mirza Mubarak Ahmad to the prophecy of Musleh Maud.
Anjam-e-Athim, pg. 14, appendix, (1897), also see, Mumtaz Ahmad Faruqi, Truth Triumphs, page 31.
“…then there is another ilham which is proclaimed on 20th February, 1886, and that was that God will increase Three into Four. At that time there was no sign of my three sons (mirza Mahmud Ahmad, Mirza Bashir Ahmad and Mirza Sharif Ahmad) who are present now ; so it seemed that the ilham meant that first of all three sons will be and then another one will be added who will make the number four. So a greater part of this Ilham is fulfilled as God has given me three sons from this marriage (the second wife) who are here ; and the next one is awaited who will increase the number into four”
_______________________________________________________________________________________________A few years later, MGA wrote
Tiryaq-e-Qulub (written in 1899, published in 1902), also see Mumtaz Ahmad Faruqi, Truth Triumphs, page 31.
“this prophecy of ‘increasing three into four’ was announced on 20th February, 1886, and after the birth of the three sons e.g., Mahmud, Bashir and Sharif, it was again mentioned in the Anjam-e-Athim and its Appendix, that as informed by God, the Promised Musleh (or reformer) who will increase three into four will now appear….”
Tiryaq-ul-Qulub, P. 43, original edition of 1899, via http://irshad.org/qadianism/prophecd.php
“This lad is indeed a Spark of the Light of Allah, the promised reformer, the owner of greatness and authority, possessor of healing breath like the Messiah, curer of diseases, a word of God and a lucky person. His fame will spread to the four corners of the world, he will set prisoners free and through him all nations will be blessed.”

Under the 25th sign, MGA writes that he considers the birth of Mirza Mubarak Ahmad as a divine promise.
_____________________________________________________________________________________________Mirza Mubarak Ahmad died in 1907
Badr, August 29, 1907
“God has revealed to me that He has accepted the prayer and the illness is cured. It means that God has accepted my prayer and Mubarak Ahmad will get well.”
MGA then received additional ilhams to the effect that his God would give him another son. He got married before he died too.
