The 1923 edition of Seeratul Mahdi tells us (Via Mirza Bashir Ahmad) that Nusrat Jehan was roughly 9 years old in 1877. Later Ahmadiyya sources tell us that she was born in 1865 in Delhi to Mir Nasir Nawab and his wife (however, we strongly dispute this year, it was most likely 1872). If we admit that this date is true, then she was 18-19 years old when she married MGA (see the Seerat ul Mahdi quote in the below), and her younger brother Mir Muhammad Ismael was 16-17 years younger than his elder sister, which is really hard to believe. Her only other sibling, another younger brother, Mir Muhammad Ishaq wasn’t born until 1890. It is more likely that she was born in 1872 and was 12 years old when she married Mirza Ghulam Ahmad (who was almost 50 and old and out of shape and nasty). 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.
Finally, MGA was impotent in 1884 and was finally cured by 1885, via the medicines of Noorudin. She gave birth to 10 children for MGA, half of them died in their youth. Her final child was Amtul Hafeez Begum, who was born on 25 June 1904. During the last 4 years with MGA, she never got pregnant. They were members of the Ahl-e-Hadith sect of Muslims in northern India.
She died in Rabwah in 1952. Nusrat Jehan is also reported as suffering from bloody diarrhea (at the 1:28:30 mark).
Mir Nasir Nawab gets to know MGA’s brother, Mirza Ghulam Qadir, he also does canal work around Qadian for the British government. Mir Nasir Nawab, his wife and their only daughter (Nusrat Jahan Begum) visit Qadian and stay in MGA’s house for many months. Nusrat Jahan Begum is a toddler and sees MGA for the first time. MGA’s father dies and the family seems to move out to Lahore. We think that MGA lusted after this infant child the same way that he lusted after Muhammadi Begum.
It says that Batalvi was a big Ahle Hadith scholar and had several Ahle Hadith girls available so he told Mir Nasir Nawab. Mir Nasir wasn’t happy about MGA’s age but Batalvi convinced him and was an intermediary. The marriage took place in November 1884 and Nusrat Jehan was 18.

_____________________________________________________________________________________________November 17th, 1884 in Delhi, India
MGA gets married to Nusrat Jehan Begum on Nov-15th (see ROR of Nov-1939). He stays for a few days, he then leaves for Qadian with his new wife on November 20th, 1884. Shaikh Hamid Ali was in the next room and reported in Ashab-e-Ahmad that MGA was impotent and afraid that he wouldn’t be able to perform. Ashab-e-Ahmad reports that Nusrat Jehan was on her period, thus, MGA was saved.
_____________________________________________________________________________________________When did the marriage happen?
There is some confusion on when this marriage happened, some Ahmadiyya sources claim that is happened in 1883. Per Ahmadiyya records (dard, page 192), Nusrat Jehan gave birth to Ismat on 4-15-1886. If we assume that the marriage happened 10 months prior to this, we get July 1885 as the date of marriage. Ismat died of cholera in 1891, just a few months after MGA’s wildest claims. 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.
After staying just one month in Qadian, she returns to Delhi to her parents home.
MGA writes letters to Noorudin addressing his impotency, Noorudin comes to Qadian and treats MGA with an opium filled medicine. MGA claims that his impotency goes away (this is the famous Zadham e Ishq, the love potion). In March-1885, Nusrat Jehan Begum returns to Qadian. MGA’s famous toilet attendant (Shaikh Hamid Ali) tells us that MGA still wasn’t cured, it took an additional 7-8 months for MGA to be cured of impotency. MGA was given the famous Zadham-e-Ishq medication from Noorudin, this had lots of opium in it, Ahmadiyya sources claim that MGA was miraculously cured and was potent again.
On Feb 20th, 1886, MGA makes the famous prediction of the promised son. Instead, on 15 April 1886, a daughter is born, her name is Ismat, she dies of cholera 5 years later. In December of 1886, she gets pregnant again.
Bashir-1 is born to her and MGA on 7 August 1887. At this point, MGA thought this was the promised son. Later on MGA would give him the name of Bashir-1 (in urdu as Bashir Aval).
In roughly April of 1888, she gets pregnant with Mirza Basheer-uddin Mahmud Ahmad.
Bashir-1 dies on 4 November 1888, he was barely 15 months, the cause of death is not given.
In January, she gives birth to Mirza Basheer-uddin Mahmud Ahmad, who eventually becomes the Khalifa in 1914 and claimed to be the Promised son (Musleh Maud) during WW-2. In February she didn’t get into MGA’s bait, nor did her father or her brothers. They didn’t attend the famous bait ceremony either.

Narration no. 20
“My mother narrated to me that mgaq took his first bai’t (oath of allegience) at Ludhiana. First day 40 men took bai’t and when He came back some women took bai’t. First of all Molvi Noordin took bait. Humble one asked WHEN DID YOU TAKE BAI’T? MOTHER SAID, IT IS KNOWN THAT I DELAYED MY BAI’T AND TOOK IT AFTER MANY YERAS. THIS IS WRONG….RATHER I NEVER SEPARATED FROM HIM (mgaq) AND ALWAYS STAYED WITH HIM AND RIGHT FROM THE START, I CONSIDERED MYSELF IN THE BAI’T AND NEVER FELT THE NEED FOR SEPARATE BAIT”
Per Ahmadiyya sources, she prayed that MGA would marry Muhammadi Begum. She thus repeatedly prayed for this prophecy to come true. She did this because she believed the prophecy was the word of God, and she wanted it to come true even though the pain of her husband’s marrying again in her own words, ‘may kill her’ (See Seerat o Sawaneh Hadhrat Amma Jaan, Prof. Syeda Naseem Saeed, Lajna Imaillah Lahore, via ROR, oct-2010).
She helped her younger brother, Mir Muhammad Ismail with money for his college, he would eventually become a doctor. Where did this money come from? Her father moved to Qadian permanently in this era, as well as her younger brother. She lived with MGA in his mansion at Qadian along with the young wife of Noorudin, Muhammad Ali’s wife, Maulvi Abdul Karim’s wife and many others.
