We have written about this story before. However, we have found new information which seems to open up this story a bit further. The new info is from the ROR of 1922 wherein MGA’s mother was described. This essay was written by an Ahmadi named Ghulam Mohammad Ahmadi, and published on the 5th of May 1922. This essay doesn’t mention MGA’s stealing of his families pension, which led to MGA getting severely punished by never being able to see him mother alive ever again, as well as being forced to work in Sialkot for a meager salary. MGA was punished severely, and rightly so, per Islam he should have gotten his right hand chopped off, since he stole upwards of 100,000 dollars in today’s money and was on the run for up to 1 year. An Urdu video herein also describes this event.
_____________________________________________________________________________________________Ahmadi spin doctors try to blame MGA’s cousin for squandering the money
You will find Ahmadi trolls all over social media running around and blaming Imam ud Din (MGA’s cousin aka brother) for spending all of the money, however, that argument collapses since MGA was punished severely. Why would MGA’s father punish him (MGA) if it was actually Imam ud Din who was the culprit? Ahmadi’s run from this question and rightly so, since if they ever accept the facts from this story, Ahmadiyya is dead.
_____________________________________________________________________________________________Facts from this essay
1–The writer compares the mother of Muhammad (saw) with the mother of MGA (nauzobillah), we have written about this topic, in this era, Ahmadis were fanatical about equating the entire life of Muhammad (Saw) with the life of MGA.
2–In MGA’s youth, he was retired, he never did any work, he was considered a useless appendage. And MGA’s mother allowed it, she allowed her son to be a lazy good for nothing human. MGA’s mother protected him from this father.
3–MGA was nicknamed Mullah in his youth. Since all he did was cry about Islam and its state of affairs in British-India.
4–The author totally omits the pension story. By 1922, the pension story had never been written about, it was later, with the publishing of Seeratul-Mahdi, that’s when the pension story was revealed.
5–Miran Baksh was sent to Sialkot to bring MGA home, he was a servant in the Mirza household. MGA’s mother had already died, however, he wasn’t supposed to tell MGA. This was part of MGA’s punishment after he stole the family money, i.e. to never see his mother ever again. And MGA’s father made sure of it.
6–MGA was on opium from an early age, since he was oblivious to his surroundings and most likely high on opium. An incident is given from MGA’s youth from roughly 1858, wherein MGA’s young son, Mirza Sultan Ahmad had fallen in the immediate vicinity of MGA and was screaming for help, however, MGA must have been high and thus didn’t hear or see anything, MGA’s mother then ran over and saved the child from what could have been an awful death.

“”In the name of Allah of the gracious and merciful
I was told by my respected mother (Harat Walida Sahiba)(this is a respectful way to refer to him mom) that one time, in his (MGA) days-of-youth, Hazrat Promised Messiah (as), (went to collect) your grandfather’s (his grand-father is MGA’s father, Mirza Ghulam Murtaza) pension. Following, following (following behind MGA in sneaky manner) was Mirza Imam ud Din (MGA’s big cousin-brother) also went. As he (MGA) collected the pension, then he (Mirza Imam Din) tricked/enticed and cheated and instead of bringing him to Qadian, he took him here and there to different places. Then, when he (Mirza Imam ud Din) spent (wrecklessly) all of the money, and finished, he left him (MGA) and went to some other place). Hazrat Promised Messiah was so ashamed (of what had happened), that he didn’t go back home (to Qadian). And since your grandfather had always desired that he (MGA) would get a job, this is why he (MGA) went to Sialkot-City to work with the Deputy Commissioner’s court house, with a low salary, and got a job. And he stayed there and worked for some time (4 years technically, 1864-1868). Then, when your (Mirza Bashir Ahmad’s) grandmother (MGA’s mother) became sick, then your (Mirza Bashir Ahmad’s) grandfather sent a man (a servant), who told MGA to quit his job and go home (to qadian). On hearing this, MGA immediately began the process of leaving Sialkot. On getting to Amritsar, enroute to Qadian, a horse carriage was rented. At that exact time, another servant from Qadian had showed up to help collect MGA at Amritsar. This man asked the driver of the horse carriage to hurry, since his mother was on her death bed. A few minutes later, he said that her condition had worsened, hurry up (the servant said), we don’t want to miss her death. My (Mirza Bashir Ahmad’s) respected mother used to tell us that Hazrat Sahib (MGA) would say that this was when MGA finally understood, his respected mother was already dead. Because, if she was still alive, this man (the servant that MGA’s father sent to pickup MGA from Sialkot) wouldn’t have kept saying this (asking the horse carriage driver to hurry up). Evidently, on arriving in Qadian, it was found out that she (MGA’s mother) was in reality already dead.
Respected mother tells us that Hazrat Sahib (MGA) used to say that “we” (MGA and his cousin Imam ud Din), left each other, then, Mirza Imam ud Din, kept going here and there, aimlessly. Eventually, he saw a tea house and robbed them, he beat them and was caught, however, during the trial/questioning he was released (by the police). Hazrat sahib (MGA) would say, obviously, Allah, because of us (MGA’s father and his loyalty to the British), got him released from prison and saved him, instead (if it wasn’t for MGA’s father) how could this man be released, since he was our enemy, as he proudly would say. One of his father’s younger brother’s (also MGA’s uncle) was also in jail, but was also released. Khaksar tells us that Hazrat Promised Messiah (as) started his work in Sialkot, this is this story.”””
Bismillah Alrehmani rahim
Bayan kia mudge say hazart walida sahib nay kay aik dafa apnee jawani (youth) kay zamana main hazart masih maoud alaih salam tumharay dada kee pension wasool kernai gaye to peachay peachay (behind) mirza imam din bhee chala gaiya. Jab aap nay pension wasool ker lee to wo aap ko phusla (trick) ker aur dhoka day ker bajayi (instead) qadian lanay kay bahir (meaning of the word is outside-but it means outside qadian somewhere else) lay giaya aour idher udher (here there) phirata raha. (according to this narration -this incident was just before sialkot employment which was 1864-1868-MGA is around 25 years old-purpose of this is to ascertain MGA age- he was not a child that imam din could lure him hither thither in India)
Phir jub us nay (imamdin) saraa rupiya ura (spend) ker khatam ker diya to aap ko schore (leave) ker kaheen aour chala gaya. Hazrat masih maoud ees (this) sharam kay maray wapis ghar naheen aiyee. Aour chounkay tumharay dada ka munsha (desire) rehtaa tha kay aap kaheen mulazam ho jayeen -ees liyay aap sialkot shahr (city) main -deputy commissionar kee katchehri main qaleel tunkhua (little wage) per mulazam ho gayay (now that proves that MGA was in his 20s and was not a child) aour kutch arsaa tuk wahan mulazmat per rahay. Phir jab tumharee dadee (MGA mother) beemar hounee to tumharay dada nay admee bhaija – kay mulazmat chour (leave) ker aa (come) jaao. Jiss per hazrat sahib forun rawana ho gayay. Amritsar pohuntch ker qadian aanay kay wastay yakka karayia per liyaa. Iss mouqa per qadian say aik aour adamee bhee aap kay laynay kay liyay amritsar pouhntch giyaa -us admee nay kaha yakka (tanga) juldi chalao kiunkay un (MGA mother) kee halat bohat nazuk thee. Phir thoree dair kay baad kehnay laga -bohat hee halat nazuk thee- jaldi karo kaheen fout (died) nah ho gaee houn. Walida sahiba bayan kertee theen -kay hazart sahib fermatay thay -kay main isee waqat sumahg giaa kay -derasal walida fout ho chukee hain. Kiunkay agar woh zinda hoteen to wo shakhas aisay alfaz na boltaa. Chonanchay qadian pohnchay to pata laga kay waqayee wo fout ho chukeen thee. Walida sahiba bayan kertee hain kay hazrat sahib fermatay thay kay humain (means -“us “ is plural- does that mean that there was at least one more person?) chore (leave) ker phir mirza imam din ihther udher (here and there) phirta raha. Akhir us nay chaiy (tea) kay qaflay per daka (theft) mara aour pakra giaa- magar muqadma main rihaa ho giya. Hazrat sahib farmatay thay kay maaloom hota hai kay Allah taala nay hamaree waja say hee usay kaid (prison) say bachaa liya-werna wo khud kaisa hee adamee tha hamaray mukhalif yahee kehtay -in kay aik chacha zaad bahee jail khana main reh chuka hai. Khaksaar araz kerta hai kay hazrat masih maoud alaih salam kee sialkot kee mulazmat 1864-1868 ka waqia hai.
Is rawait (narration) say yay naheen samajna chahiya kay hazart masih maoud ka sialkot main mulaazam hona is wajah say tha- kay aap say mirza imam din nay dada sahib kee pension kaa rupaya dhoka say ura (taken) liya tha-keyoon kay jaisa kay khud hazart masih maoud alaih salam nay apnee tasaneef main tasreeh (explain) kee hai. Aap kee mulazmat akhtiayar kernay kee waja (reason) siraf yay thee kay aap kay walid sahib mulazmat kay leyay zour daitay rehtay thay -werna aap kee apnee raiy (opinion) mulazmat kay khilaf thee. Isee tarha mulazmat chour (leave) daynay kee bhee asal wajah yahee thee – kay hazrat masih maoud mulazmat ko naapasand fermatay thay-aour apnay walid sahib ko mulazmat turk ker daynay kee ijazat kay leyay likhtay rehtay thay. laykin dada sahib turk a mulazmat kee ijazat naheen daytay thay. Magar jub dadi sahiba bemaar hunyee to dada sahib nay ijazat bhijwaa dee kay mulazmat chore ker aa jao.””
