Just posting quotes here from “Surma Chashm Arya” (1886) (Lead-ore Collyrium for the eyes of the Aryas). This is from an era wherein MGA was a “Wahabi” aka ‘Ahl-e-hadith” type of Mullah, hence, MGA still officially believed in miracles and etc.
“””…God has Vested in him a hidden faculty of receiving revelation. When human reason arrives at the limit of its reach, at that stage God Almighty, for the purpose of leading His true and faithful servants to the perfection of understanding and certainty, guides them through revelation and visions. Thus the stages which reason could not traverse are traversed by means of revelation and visions, and seekers after truth thereby arrive at full certainty. This is the Way of Allah, to guide to which Prophets have appeared in the world and without treading along which no one can arrive at true and perfect understanding; but an unfortunate dry philosopher is so much in a hurry that he desires that whatever has to be disclosed should be disclosed at the stage of reason. He does not know that reason cannot carry a burden beyond its strength, nor can it step forward further than its capacity. He does not reflect that to carry a person to his desired excellence God Almighty has Bestowed upon him not only the faculty of reason but also the faculty of receiving revelation. It is the height of misfortune to make use of only the elementary means out of those that God has, out of His Perfect Wisdom, Bestowed upon man for the purpose of recognizing God. “”””(Surmah Chashm-e-Aryah, pp. 40-41, Ruhani Khaza’in, vol. 2, pp. 88-89).
“””The author has also been informed that he is the Reformer of the age and that his spiritual qualities have a resemblance to the qualities of Masih [Messiah], son of Mary—each bearing a strong affinity and likeness with the other. And [I have also been told] that, due entirely to the
blessing of perfect obedience to the Best of Mankind and the Most Exalted of All the Messengers, on whom be the peace and blessings of Allah, this humble one has been
granted exaltation above many of the great saints who have passed away before me, just as the Prophets and Messengers were granted earlier. Following my way is the road to salvation, good fortune and blessings; and to go against it is a cause for deprivation and despondency.”””[Announcement Appendix Surmah Chashm-e-Aryah, Ruhani Khaza’in, vol. 2, p. 319] (see also the 2009 online edition of Tadhkirah, page 159).
“””(A) I had told several Hindus and Muslims of several towns that by the person of Punjabi origin was meant Dalip Singh concerning whom it had been given out that he would arrive in the Punjab but I foretold that he would be disappointed in this hope and that he would encounter difficulties in this journey threatening his comfort, honour, or life… In the end, in accordance with this prophecy, he suffered much inconvenience, trouble, suffering and humiliation and failed in his purpose.””” [Appendix Surmah Chashm-e-Aryah, p. 4, Ruhani Khaza’in, vol. 2, p. 318 and
Majmu‘a Ishtiharat, vol. 1, p. 131](see also the 2009 online edition of Tadhkirah, page 168).
“””(C) The person mentioned in the announcement of February 20, 1886 as a nobleman of Punjabi origin was Dalip Singh. This was conveyed to more than five hundred Hindus and Muslims in various towns before the event and the announcement of February 20, 1886 was distributed
in distant lands. Then all that was announced about Dalip Singh in advance was fulfilled.”””
[Surmah Chashm-e-Aryah, p. 188, Ruhani Khaza’in, vol. 2, p. 236](see also the 2009 online edition of Tadhkirah, page 168).
“””It has been disclosed to me by Allah today also, which is August 3, 1886, that if he (Ahmadiyya sources claim that this is referring to Mirza Imam ud Din, MGA’s cousin) does not repent he will soon face the consequences of his misdoings. Should it be a sorrow or grief which is normally encountered, that should not be considered the fulfilment of this prophecy, but if he suffers some affliction which is entirely unexpected then it would be right to conclude that this is in accord with the prophecy. Should he, however, repent, his end will be good; or after a warning he would be granted comfort. [Surmah Chashm-e-Aryah, pp. 190–191, Ruhani Khaza’in, vol. 2, pp. 238–239](see also the 2009 online edition of Tadhkirah, page 188).
