It seems that MGA killed his daughter Ismat. At the end, MGA was happy that she died, and claimed to have gotten a revelation that she would die. She was born in Ambala on April 15, 1886 and MGA was embarrassed for failing in his Musleh Maud prediction. MGA had made a the famous Musleh Maud prophecy on February 20th, 1886, that his wife was pregnant and she would give birth to a promised son, he followed this up with another announcement on March 22nd, 1886, and another on April 8th, 1886, and re-iterated the same language, i.e., that a son would be born to MGA very soon, these were published while MGA was in Hoshiarpur. On the way back, or maybe MGA’s wife was travelling alone, nevertheless, Ismat was the only child of Nusrat Jehan who was born outside of Qadian. She was born in Amballa on April 15, 1886 and MGA was embarrassed for failing in his prediction. A storm of ridicule and abuse was raised by the religous communities of British-India (muslims, christians and hindu’s) against MGA. The Christian paper Nur Afshan (dated June 3rd,1886), Pt. Lekhram of the Arya Samaj (vide his Ishtihar dated, April 25th, 1886), Nabi Bakhsh, a Muslim of Lahore, and others declared that the prophecy was falsified by the birth of the daughter.
5 years later (1891), while MGA was in Ludhiana for a debate, he claims to have accidently given her Jasmine oil instead of sherbert (see the Seeratul Mahdi ref in the below). Its unclear where she was buried. Her death is recorded in one of the oldest biographies on the life of MGA, its “Seeratul-masih -maoud by yaqub ali irfani which was published roughly in 1915. He also later on wrote the biography of Mir Nasir Nawab, wherein MGA’s admission of death by cholera was recorded. The book was later on edited by Ahmadiyya leadership, however, we have the original. Interestingly enough, the Lahori-Ahmadi biographer, Dr. Basharat Ahmad also wrote the same, i.e. that Ismat died of cholera in 1891, (see page, 87, http://www.muslim.org/bookspdf/tgr1/tgr1.pdf). See also the ROR of August-1924, page 269. She is also mentioned in the ROR of Dec-1939.

MIRZA GHULAM QADIANI MARRIED TO NUSRAT JEHAN IN DEHLI AT THE AGE OF 50 YEARS PLUS. WHEN NUSRAT JEHAN GOT PREGNANT, MIRZA QADIYANI PUBLISHED ISHTIHAR THAT GOD HAS INFORMED ME OF A SON WHICH WILL BE MASLEH E MAOUD AND HE WILL LIVE LONGER AND WOULD BE A SIGN OF ALLAH, BE GREATEST PERSONALITY AND HE WOULD DO THIS AND THAT ETC ETC. HOWEVER, TO THE ENTIRE DISAPPOINTMENT OF MIRZA, NUSRAT JEHAN GAVE BIRTH TO A BABY GIRL CALLED ISMAT. MIRZA FELT GREAT HUMILIATION AND HAD TO FACE THE MOCKERY TAUNTS AND INSULTING REMARKS AND ISHTIHAR OF OPPONENTS. HOWEVER AFTER SOMETIME ISMAT DIED OF CHOLERA AT LUDHIANA. THE EVER LAME EXCUSING MIRZA CAME UP WITH THE ARGUMENT THAT I DID NOT SAY THAT THE MASLEH E MAUOD SON WILL BE BORN FROM THIS PREGNANCY. NUSRAT JEHAN GOT PREGNANT AGAIN AND THIS TIME BASHIR AWWAL WAS BORN. THIS INFLATED MIRZA TO A GREAT DEGREE. HIS MUREED AUTHOR OF SEERATUL MASIH MAOUD WRITES AT PAGES 228-230 VOLUME-1, THAT HAZRAT SB THOUGHT BASHIR AWWAL IS THE MASLEHE MAOUD AND HE ARRANGED A PARTY TO CELEBRATE HIS AQIQA AND MADE TALL CLAIMS ABOUT THIS SON. BUT BASHIR AWWAL COULD NOT LIVE LONGER HE WAS BORN ON 7 AUGUST 1887 AND DIED AT THE AGE OF 15 MONTHS ON 14 NOVEMBER 1888
MGA giving her Jasmine Oil
Seeratul Mahdi, page 775, 2018 edition
Story number 775
“””Mir Muhammad Ismail says:
Ismat was the first child and only child of MGA that wasn’t born in Qadian, she was born in Ambala. She loved drinking sherbert. She thus got addicted. MGA thus always had a bottle of sherbert, even at night, she would beg her dad for it. MGA would get up and give her some. Once in Ludhiana, she did the same, and MGA accidentally gave her Jasmine oil. In the morning, MGA figured out his error, however, she didn’t die. Mir Ismail narrated that after the death of Ismat, MGA left Ludhiana in a week with his wife and went to Amritsar. Mirza Bashir Ahmad says that Ismat was the eldest child of his mother. However, this is odd, since he should have said that she was the oldest child of MGA and Nusrat Jehan.
