Maulvi Abdul Karim Sialkoti was born in 1858 (see Dard, page 816, 2008 online edition, the original was published in 1948), he died on Oct. 11th, 1905 (see english ROR, November-1905 pages 446-447). He was a follower of MGA from roughly 1889 to his death in 1905. We don’t talk about people’s death normally, however, in the case of Ahmadiyya, we are forced to, since all Ahmadi’s wish a miserable death upon us. Moreover, MGA wished a miserable death on all his critics. Hence, we are forced to write about these types of situations.

Maulvi Abdul Karim Sialkoti was also a ghost writer and editor and speech giver
He used to translate Mirza’s writings into Farsi and Arabic, and also read out his speeches and sermons. He has been variously described as one of the two ‘angels’ on whose shoulders the Messiah landed.
After taking bai’at, Maulvi Abdul Karim frequently visited Qadian to spend time in the company of the Promised Messiah and to benefit from his spiritual and learned discourses. He made it a point to accompany the Promised Messiah wherever he went for dissemination of Islam and the true teachings of the Qur’an. We find him present in Ludhiana in July 1891 during the debate between Maulvi Muhammad Hussain Batalvi and the Promised Messiah; similarly in October 1891 during the Promised Messiah’s speech in Jamia Masjid Dehli, and during the debates by the Promised Messiah with Maulvi Nazeer Hussain Dehlvi, and the written debate with Maulvi Muhammad Bashir Bhopali. He was one amongst those seventy persons who attended the first Jalsa Salana (Annual Gathering) which was held in Qadian from 27 to 29 December, 1891, and thereafter he accompanied the Promised Messiah on his visit to Lahore in January 1892 and his visit to Sialkot in February 1892.

1903 era—Maulvi Abdul Karim Sialkoti’s wife?
Not much is written about the wife of Maulvi Abdul Karim Sialkoti, she makes one appearance in the literature of Ahmadiyya, this is in roughly the 1903 era. She competes with the wife of Noorudin, in terms of who does MGA love more? Noorudin or Maulvi Abdul Karim Sialkoti. Further, where are his children? He seems to either have had NO children or they disappeared.

1905, Maulvi Abdul Karim Sialkoti dies of plague, MGA refuses to visit him on his deathbed
He fell ill in August of 1905, and died on 11 October 1905, probably of the plague, as Mirza did not visit him on his deathbed despite his request. On December 27, 1905, his body was exhumed and re-buried in the Bahishti Maqbara with new funeral prayers.
Notice of his death appeared in the Review of Religions. Abdul Kaim’s death was apparently caused by a huge carbuncle that was on his back..which later turned into a disease of pleurodynia. People have wondered if pleurodynia had anything connection with the plague?

Inna illahi wa inna ilaih rajeoon. The next morning the Promised Messiah led Maulvi Abdul Karim’s funeral prayer and he was temporarily buried in general a graveyard of Qadian.
