In the Review of Religions of June 1914, Mirza Bashir Ahmad (the younger brother) has described being Mujaddid of the 14th century as the mission of Hazrat Mirza sahib. The Lahori-Ahmadi’s present this an argument against the prophethood of MGA. They argue that the sons of MGA didn’t know about the prophethood of MGA and thus made these errors. We have posted the June edition of the 1914 ROR herein. 1914 June. This seems to be from Mirza Bashir Ahmad’s first ever essay in any Ahmadi magazine, he was barely 21 years old at the time and a college student. The name of his essay is “The True Religion”, of which only 3 pages were published in this edition. However, his brother, Mirza Basheerudin Mahmud Ahmad also has an older essay in this very edition of the ROR. It seems to be from just 2 weeks before the death of the Khalifa, Maulvi Noorudin and dated as March 1st, 1914. The essay is entitled “Islamic Mode of Worship” and runs over 13 pages with a footnote by the only official missionary of the Ahmadiyya movement in London, Fateh Muhammad Sial. Interestingly, in the same era, the Khalifa seems to have been unsure of the exact nature of MGA’s prophetood, as evidenced herein and exposed by the Lahori-Ahmadi’s (see the Pagham e Sulh of July-1914). Muhammad Ali’s first article against the Qadiani’s was in the summer of 1914 he wrote a booklet Al-Muslih al-Mau‘ud (‘The Promised Reformer’) after a Qadiani wrote an article in May 1914 in the magazine Tashhiz-ul-Azhan, published from Qadian, trying to prove that Mirza Mahmud Ahmad was the Reformer whose coming had been prophesied by the Promised Messiah. In this booklet Maulana Muhammad Ali proved that none of the then living sons of Hazrat Mirza sahib fulfilled the prophecy of being Muslih Mau‘ud. One more thing, even 2-3 months after the split, the Qadiani Jamaat was still marketing Khwaja Kamaluddin’s magazine, the Islamic review from London. So when the Lahori-Ahmadi’s were formed it was decided to send Maulana Sadr-ud-Din to Woking, and he left in August of 1914. After his arrival Khwaja Kamal-ud-Din came back to India temporarily in November 1914 and stayed here till August 1916. The Qadiani-Jamaat, might have been unsure as to what side Khwaja Kamaluddin was on. However, as soon as he returned from England he gave speech which was turned into the an urdu-only book, “Ikhtalayfaat-e-Silsilaa-e-Ahmadiyya kay Usbaab”. Khwaja Kamaluddin’s quotes “Tuhfatul-Muluk” (A Present to Kings) by the Khalifa, Mirza Basheer ud Din Mahmud Ahmad which seems to have been written in the summer of 1914. This book was published on Dec 24th, 1914, during the Qadiani Jalsa. It was the first ever book about the split in the Ahmadiyya Movement. Mirza Basheer ud Din Mahmud Ahmad responded with his famous book “Qaul al Fasl” (Jan of 1915). “Haqiqat un Nubuwwat” by the Khalifa came out later in March of 1915. Muhammad Ali responded with “Prophethood in Islam”, a huge book, which was published in December of 1915.
