Mirza Ghulam Ahmad was the classic punjabi fraudster. He had promised the Muslims of the Indian sub-continent 300 arguments in favor of Islam in roughly 1878. However, he only delivered one argument, and that argument was his claim of prophethood, which immediately got him declared as a Kafir by the ulema in India. The ROR of Oct-1916 also confesses that the Barahin-i-Ahmadiyya was supposed to contain 300 arguments, this is via Qazi Abdullah, an Ahmadi missionary in London. The ROR of Sep-1939 also discusses the Barahin series and confesses that 2500 pages of the Barahin were ready to be published in 1879, however, this is a total lie. The ROR of Sep-1939 also confesses that only 1 argument out of 300 was given in the BA 1-4. The ROR of Sep-1939 also lies and claims that BA-5 was published (appeared) in 1905, which is a lie, it was published posthumously in Oct-1908. The ROR of Feb-1940 has a review on the Barahin series and even mentions how MGA offered a 10,000 rupee reward for anyone who could refute him.

The Ahl-e-Hadith Muslims of North India tore up the Barahin-i-Ahmadiyya and sent it back to Qadian in that state (1884-1885 era), these were the Muslims who had invested heavily in the publishing of the Barahin. MGA stopped at one argument and even that was incomplete, see the quote in the below. In 1886, in Surmah Chashmay Arya, MGA again asserted that the Barahin was ready to be published, however, funds were needed. For the next 20 years, this promise remained broken. In 1906-1907 (See Haqiqatul Wahy), MGA and his team of writers of spoke about the creation of Barahin-i-Ahmadiyya Vol. 5. However, it was not completed or published in MGA’s life.

After MGA died, Noorudin (who was the main ghost writer) wrote BA-5 and had it published in October of 1908, he added that MGA promised 50 volumes and 50=5. MGA didn’t write this at all. In fact, BA-5 isn’t even a continuation of BA 1-4, it is altogether a new book and in-fact contains 3-4 small booklets which were mashed together to create BA-5, one of which is Nusrat ul Haq and at least 40 pages of nonsensical poetry.
_____________________________________________________________________________________________A summary of the quotation of Seeratul Mahdi- Number 123

It says that 300 arguments were Written on 2500 pages but in fact Only One Incomplete argument could be printed in Braheenay Ahmadia in total of 4 volumes. He says he heard that earlier writings were burned.

MGA made lots of excuses for the delay

MGA claims to write 300 arguments in support of Islam
“We wrote Braheen e Ahmadiyya after observing hundreds of defects and evils in the society. In the mentioned book, the truth of Islam was shinning in fact more than the sun because of 300 strong and sound arguments.” (Braheen e Ahmadiyya 2, Roohani Khazien 1, page 62)
MGA claims that he has instead written millions of arguments

“People said that the promise of giving arguments mentioned in Braheen is not fulfilled. Though there are millions of arguments in Braheen for the truth of Islam.”

(Badar,volume 6, No. 17, page 7-8, 25 April 1907)(Malfoozat volume 5 page 206, new edition)

[RK, v 17, pp. 448-458; Arba`een Number 4]. The article is dated
December 1900. In this he censures his critics and claims that he has Divine support etc. Toward the end of the article is the following:

“””If I have received from you the payment for the price of Baraaheen-e-Ahmadiyya then I invoke the oath of God Almighty upon you, in Whose presence you will be made to appear, that [you should] return all those four parts of Baraaheen-e-Ahmadiyya to my custody and take your money back. Look, I make this open announcement that after this if you demand the price [refund] of Baraaheen-e-Ahmadiyya and, having shown [those parts] to some friend of mine, send [return] all four parts to me, as value payable, and if I, after receiving the four parts, do not pay their price, then [may] the curse of God [be] upon me. … And prior to this I have published three announcements, regarding the price [refund] of Baraaheen, which had the same content that I am prepared to return the price. [These people] should return all the four parts of my book and receive from me the few paltry coins that they are dying for. … [Dated] December 15, 1900 AD [RK, v 17, pp. 457-458; starts at last line of p. 457, above the marginal note; Arba`een Number 4].”””
In 1900, MGA promised 40 parts for his books Arbaeen, however, he only gives 4 calls it even

“Just as God had initially fixed 50 prayers then reduced it to 5 in place of 50, similarly according to the Sunnah of Rabb-e-Kareem, I reduce for the sake of viewers and pronounce number 4 as 40.” (Roohani Khazain vol.17, Arba’een No. 4, Page 442,…uhani-Khazain-Vol-17.pdf, PDF 477)
