Summary written by a friend of mine
Shaikh Maher Ali Raees of Hoshiarpur, was a rich Mureed of Mirza Qadiyani from whom Mirza Qadiani minted lot of money in the name of Chanda. This was the man in whose TAWEELA (Animal place), at HoshiarPur, Mirza Qadiani spent more than a month in connection with committed worship (CHILLA KASHI).
It was the habit of Mirza Qadiani that whenever there take place some incident or a calamity Mirza would immediately claim that God has informed him of the happening before hand. In 1892, a man was murdered in Hoshiarpur and on suspicion Sheikh Maher Ali was arrested among others. Mirza announced that God had shown him six months ago that the floor of Sheikh,s house has caught fire and he has requested Sheikh sb for repentance thru a letter.
While Sheikh sb was locked up, Jan Muhammad, his son sent letter to Mirza requesting him to pray for release of his father. Mirza replied that “DUA KI GAI FAZAL HO JAIGA” meaning i have prayed for him God would do his favour. Remember this is a common practice in Punjab that peoples, when in trouble, solace each other with the words like “ALLAH FAZAL KAREGA” THEEK HOJAIGA “KHAIR HOGI “ etc
Shaikh Maher Ali proved innocent during trial by Session Court and was released. Mirza sent a letter to Sheikh sb stating that he has been released because of my prayers for which i have already informed your son. Now send me a letter to confirm the fact that he Mirza has predicted of his arrest and release so that people may know of this heavenly sign about my truth.
Sheikh Maher Ali sent letter thru his son stating that he, Mirza has not predicted my release but he only said God would do favour. Thus he refused to send such a testimony to Mirza. Mirza got furious to read this and published isthihar against Sheikh Maher Ali stating that I have petitioned the case of Sheikh Maher Ali in the court of Allah. On the night of 25 February 1893, Allah told me that whatever u intend for him on the earth Allah would do that in the skies, and soon Sheikh Maher Ali would suffer agony and trouble and if it is not happened and revealed to the world I would be treated as a liar.
Nothing happened to Sheikh Maher Ali he spent rest of his life quit peacefully and comfortably thus attesting the lie of Mirza Qadiyani.
