The main issue of Takfir in Ahmadiyya happened around 1906 and the controversy between MGA and Dr. Khan and the topic of whether or not a Muslim needed to accept MGA or not. Dr. Khan was a follower of MGA before MGA claimed prophethood and before MGA ever did Takfir, in fact, by 1901, MGA was saying that the acceptance of “non-law” bearing prophets was not mandatory in Islam (See Tiryaq ul Qulub, 1902). However, MGA’s behavior had changed since then, MGA was a full fledged “ummati-Nabi” by 1906, and he wasnt holding any punches. MGA died of cholera on May 26th, 1908, ahmadiyya leadership was quiet on the cause of death, however, the truth was that MGA had only went to Lahore in April of 1908 to seek treatment, as he was suffering from cholera and eventually died of it.
MIRZA AND DR ABDUL HAKIM KHAN PATIALVI
BOOK CHASHMA E MARIFAT PAGE NO 336-337
MIRZA WRITES :-
“””SIMILARLY MANY ENEMIES AMONG MUSLIMS STOOD AGAINST ME AND WERE KILLED. NOW THERE APPEARED ONE LAST ENEMY KNOWN AS DR ABDUL HAKIM KHAN PATIALVI. HE IS A DOCTOR FROM PATIALA HE CLAIMS THAT I WOULD BE KILLED IN HIS LIFE UPTO 4TH AUGUST 1908, AND THIS WOULD BE A SIGN OF HIS TRUTH FULLNESS AND HE CLAIMS IT IS A REVELATION TO ME FROM ALLAH SWT. HE DECLARES ME AS KAZZAB, DAJJAL AND KAFIR.
HE TOOK MY ALLEGIANCE AND REMAINED MY FOLLOWER FOR 20 YEARS.BUT WHEN I GAVE HIM AN ADVISE HE DEVIATED. THE ADVISE WAS GIVEN JUST FOR ALLAH,S SAKE WHICH WAS THAT HE WAS OF THE FAITH THAT ONE CAN GET DELIVERANCE IN THE WORLD HEREAFTER WITHOUT ACCEPTING HAZRAT MUHAMMAD S.A.W. I TOLD HIM THAT THIS BELIEF IS AGAINST ISLAM AND MAJORITY OF THE ELDERS OF ISLAM.BUT HE TURNED A DEAF EAR TO IT, FINALLY I REMOVED HIM FROM MY JAMMAT.THEN HE PROPHESIED THAT I WOULD BE KILLED BY 4TH AUGUST 1908 IN HIS LIFE TIME. BUT COUNTERING HIS PROPHESY, GOD HAS INFORMED ME THAT HE HIMSELF WOULD RECEIVE AZAB AND GOD WOULD KILL HIM AND WILL PROTECT ME FROM HIS EVIL.SO THIS IS THE CASE WHICH IS NOW IN THE COURT OF ALLAH FOR DECISION.”””

Ahle Hadith, 12 June 1908
“But, we expected this to happen soon, as had been announced by Dr. Abdul Hakim of Patiala. The doctor had stated, ‘My revelation concerning Mirza of Qadian, which may kindly be published, is that: (1) The Mirza will die on the 21st day of Saavan, 1965 (4th August, 1908) of a fatal disease. (2) A distinguished woman of the family of Mirza shall also die.’ [Weekly Ahle Hadith: 15.5.1908]. However, we cannot refrain from saying what is true. Had the doctor stopped at what he had stated before, that is, his prediction of Mirza’s death within fourteen months and not fixed a specific date as he has done then those objections could have never been raised as are being raised today by the Paisa Akhbar of the 27th, wherein it is stated that had the prophecy been left as, ‘up to the 21st of Saavan’ and not altered to, ‘on the 21st of Saavan’ it would have, indeed, been wonderful. But alas, his revelation that Mirza will die on the 21st of Saavan, that is 4th of August, has been published in the Ahle Hadith issue of 15th May, 1908. We wish that he would have left his earlier revelations unaltered, without giving a specific date. Then there could have been no excuse.”
