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. At the end of this book, MGA issued his 1-year-challenge/mubahila. Maulawi Muhammad Husain Batalvi devoted about 14 pages of his paper Isha‘atus-Sunnah Vol. 9 No. 5 and No. 6, pp. 145-158) to this book and instead of reviewing it he gave quotations which he said spoke for themselves. He asked every Muslim to buy ten or twenty copies of the book for distribution amongst the Hindus so that the hostile activities of the Arya Samaj against Islam might be checked.”””” (dard, page 158).
“””…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) (See Hidden Treasures, page 33).
“””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.”””

“””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).
“If some Arya (Samaji) having read our whole pamphlet does not leave his obstinacy and does not retrace from blasphemy, then we call him to hold a Mubahala with us, on a token we have received from Allah the Exalted”. (Surma-e-Chashme-e-Arya, Roohani Khazain, Vol. 2, P. 232).
“Last resort is Mubahala for which we have made a call earlier. For Mubahala, it is not necessary to be a scholar of the Vedas (Hindu religious books). Yes, he should be a well- mannered, renowned Arya who may also impress others. Therefore Lala Murli Dhar Sahib is first of all addressed; then Lala Jeevan Das, Secretary Arya Samaj, Lahore; then Munshi IndarMan Sahib Moradabadi; and then some other person from amongst Aryas who is a respected man and is also considered learned. If they really think that ‘Vedas’ teachings which we have recounted in this pamphlet are correct and true and contrarily consider that the principles and teachings of Quran Shareef, also written by us in this very pamphlet, are wrong and untrue, then they may do Mubahala with us on this issue and having decided on a spot for holding the Mubahala, by mutual agreement the two parties may present themselves at that place the fixed date. Each party to the Mubahala should stand in a meeting before public and take oath, repeating words which we have written in bold as specimen and have appended them to this pamphlet; that is, if our assertion is false Divine Distress and punishment may descend on us. In this way, the words contained in each of the two Mubahalas should be publicly verified for truthfulness, believing that Divine punishment must fall on the party who swears falsely. And there shall be a waiting period of one year for Divine Decision to come down. If after passage of one year Divine punishment falls on the writer of this pamphlet, or does not fall on the adversary, in either case, this humble self, shall suffer a fine of Rs.500/- which, subject to mutual agreement, shall be deposited into the government treasury or wherever this amount is easily available to the adversary. In case he overcomes us, he shall entitle himself to collect this sum automatically, but if we overcome him we don’t lay a wager. Our bet is the same prayer, that is, of heavenly signs befalling and that’s enough. Now, we conclude this pamphlet after writing down the subject matter of each of the documents of Mubahala. With Allah’s Help.” (Ibid. P. 250-251.)”
“So, O God, Omnipotent, decide truly between us two parties, and whosoever, out of us, is a liar in his assertions and dogmas .. .O Immensely Mighty! send down a punishment in one year’s time”. (Ibid P. 254-255).
“He who is a liar making false statements in Your Eyes …….. O Eesher, beat him up with such strokes of pain ……. that curses taking their toll, reach him in a year’s time.”( Ibid. P. 258).
“””May it be known that at the end of Surma-e-Chashme Arya, I had called some Aryan people for a Mubahala. As a result of my writing, Pandit Lekh Ram, in his pamphlet, Khabte Ahmadiya which he published in 1888…. held a Mubahala with me. Accordingly, in his pamphlet Khabte Ahmadiya on page 344, Pandit Lekh Ram wrote the following in his introductory remarks. “Since our respected and revered Master Murli Dhar and Munshi Jeevan Das Sahib are busy in government work, this humble obedient, on his own volition and with their pleasure has taken this duty upon himself. Therefore, as the proverb says: ‘take the liar to his door-step,’ I accept Mirza Sahib’s last request (of Mubahala) also”.
“I humble, Lekh Ram, son of Pandit Tara Singh Sahib Sharma, Author of Takzeeb-e-Braheen-e-Ahmadiya and this pamphlet, (Nuskha-e-Khabte Ahmadiya) declare in soundness of all my senses and understanding that I have read the pamphlet Surma-e-Chashme Arya from beginning to end, not once but many times, having grasped its arguments fully and have published its reply in refutation in the light of Sat Dharam (true religion). In this pamphlet, the arguments of Mirza Sahib have not impressed me one bit because they are not righteously oriented. (After dilating on this subject the Pandit wrote in the end:) O, Permeshwar! (God) Make a decision between us truly, because never can a liar glorify in Thy Audience against the truthful.
Writer: Your eternal slave, Lekh Ram Sharma, Sabhasud Arya Samaj, Peshawar, presently Editor, Arya Gazette, Ferozepur Punjab,” (Roohani Khazain, Vol. 2, P. 326-332, Summary}.
