Dr. Basharat Ahmad wrote the famous “Mujadid-e-Azam” which gives many facts about the life of MGA, he was also the father-in-law of Muhammad Ali, circa 1909, after Muhammad Ali’s first wife died. Both of these guys went on to become Lahori-Ahmadi’s. In this story, we have an extract from an Ahmadi newspaper wherein Dr. Basharat Ahmad gives his comments on MGA’s “Haqiqatul Wahy”. We are unsure about the supplement to this book and when that was specifically published.
As the Promised Messiah’s book Haqiqat-ul-Wahy was published in May 1907, mention of it is found in the Ahmadiyya newspapers around that date. In Badr, 8 August 1907, a letter by Dr Basharat Ahmad to Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad is printed under the title Haqiqat-ul-Wahy. The letters runs as follows:
“Assalamu alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatu-hu!
This servant has been busy in reading Haqiqat-ul-Wahy in recent days and finished it in 15 to 20 days, reading it very carefully by the grace of God. I read the most wonderful secrets of knowledge and my faith was refreshed by ever newer signs. You, sir, have conclusively proved the arguments to the opponents to the highest degree. If they don’t accept them even now, then they are like the bat which does not see the sun on a bright day. You, sir, have made the sun of clear evidences and irrefutable arguments to rise. Now the opponent Maulvis have nothing left but obduracy and prejudice. Signs are pouring down like rain. If a man has the least spiritual taste and faith, he will find an ocean of Divine signs flowing by your hand, sir. But the fact is that the inner nature of these opponent Maulvis has become distorted due to their vehemence, prejudice and ignorance. Otherwise, for men of spiritual taste and faith there are more than enough signs.”
