Mirza Bashir Ahmad was a son of Mirza Ghulam Ahmad who was named Qamrul Anbiyaa (the moon of the prophets) by his father. He was born in 1893 and died on September 2, 1963, at the age of 71. He helped his brother through the latter’s period as head of the Qadiani Ahmadiyya. This help came in the form of managing properties in Qadian and writing books and essays in the jamaat periodicals that ultimately proved to be quite controversial. His role and his works are now greatly minimized by the Qadiani establishment. Very few Ahmadis know know much about him and his writings. The picture in the above is from the 1924 edition of the Moslem Sunrise.
His marriage in 1902
His marriage was a child marriage, he was married to the daughter of Maulvi Ghulam Hasan Khan (who became a Lahori Ahmadi in 1914, and even refused to give his bait to the Khalifa, Noorudin) when he was only 9 years old: In 1902, the Promised Messiah asked for the hand of Maulana Ghulam Hassan Khan Niazi’s second daughter, Sarwar Sultan, for marriage with his son Mirza Mian Bashir Ahmad. The nikah was solemnized on September 12, 1902 and the nikah was conducted by Hakeem Nooruddin, who also delivered the khutba-e-nikah (marriage sermon). (Al-Hakm of 17 September 1902, 31 October 1902 and 17 November 1902. The full text of the khutba is also published in Khutbat-e-Nur(pp. 102-109). (The late Mirza Muzaffar Ahmad CSP, who had retired from the Civil Service of Pakistan and was residing in Washington, D.C. at the time of his death, is the son of Mirza Bashir Ahmad and Sarwar Sultan.

His nickname during the life of MGA
MGA called him the Qamrul Anbiyaa (Moon of the Prophets) allegedly told to him directly by God. It is meant to signify that all the light of all the prophets is reflected in him.
Mirza Bashir Ahmad wrote about the death of MGA 20+ years after it happened. He wrote to purposely change the narrative that MGA died of cholera, since that was the main narrative that everyone in British India knew.
The children of Mirza Bashir Ahmad?
Ahmadiyya sources don’t really explain this at all. Nevertheless, one of his sons is the famous Mirza Muzaffar Ahmad (MM Ahmad). He was born in 1913. We have to come to find out that he had 9 children in total, 5 boys and 4 girls. There whereabouts are unknown by 2018 (see at the 4:45 mark). He doesn’t seem to have taken a second wife either.
He had 5 sons
1. Mirza Muzzafar Ahmad (born 1913) He married his first cousin, Amatul Qayyum, roughly in the 1930’s.
2. Mirza Hamid Ahmad also spelled as Mirza Hameed Ahmad
3. Mirza Munir Ahmad, also spelled as Mirza Muneer Ahmad.
———————–grandson-Mirza Safeer Ahmad, was married to the eldest daughter of Mirza Tahir Ahmad, Shaukat, his first cousin.
4. Dr. Brigadier Mirza Mubasher Ahmad
5. Mirza Mujeed Ahmad passed away on 14 August 2018 at the age of 94. Was born in Qadian on 18 July 1924. He dedicated his life to the service of faith on 7 May 1944 and continued his studies. In 1949 he joined Jamiatul Mubashireen and graduated in July 1954. He was married on 28 December 1950, which was the third day of the Jalsa Salana, to Sahibzadi Qudsiyah Begum Sahiba – daughter of Hazrat Nawab Abdullah Khan Sahibra and Hazrat Nawab Amatul Hafeez Begum Sahiba
So far we have only tracked two.
6— daughter—Sayyedah Amatul Salam (see page 46).
7—daughter—Sahibzadi Amatul Bari Begum Sahiba (1923–2015).
8 years later (1910) later he matriculated, or he graduated from high school. He was 17. After 7 more years of college he graduated with an M.A. in Arabic. Yet he never wrote anything in Arabic in his whole life, in fact it is unclear what institution gave him a Masters of Arabic.
Such a lofty title does not equate with the reduced importance that the Qadiani Ahmadiyya give to him now. In another article in the Review of Religions, circa 1918, Mirza Ghulam Ahmad himself has been referred to as the ‘sun’ and the ‘moon’ of the prophets, together with an explanation of why it is so.
MM Ahmad was born.
June 1914, he writes an essay in the english ROR
His first few article in jamaat newspapers began in late 1914 and they continued for many years. His jamaat took his essays and articles and put them into book form. The first such book was “Kalimatul Fasl” which started as a series of essays and was officially put into book form. This book focused on issues between the Lahori-Ahmadi’s and Qadiani-Ahmadi’s. Those issues included Takfir, prophethood, and whether Ahmadi’s followed the same Kalima as Muslims or not.
He began writing about the life of Muhammad (saw). His articles appeared again in Ahmadiyya periodicals. Those articles were edited and turned into books. This book is now in english on the Qadiani-Ahmadi website. Its called, “The Life of the Seal of the Prophets“. There are 3 volumes. We are not sure how much editing was done, that still needs to be explore. However, in this era, the Mirza family was calling child marriage as normal.
He writes the first edition of ‘Seeratul-Mahdi”, in english as “The Life of the Mahdi”. Many editions come after, with heavy edits along the way. The first edition is still missing, it is said to have many controversial personal details of MGA and especially his lust for his niece, Muhammadi Begum.
He begins editing the works of MGA and other Ahmadi authors
He gets MGA’s date of birth pushed back to 1835
1934—the Bihar Earthquake
He wrote a book entitled “Another Great Prophecy Fulfilled” wherein he claims that the 1934 earthquake in India was predicted by MGA.
He writes, “Islam and Slavery”–https://www.alislam.org/library/books/Islam-and-Slavery.pdf
He moved to Lahore, Pakistan with his brother, the Khalifa, he then moved to Rabwah, once housing arrangements were made.
He writes that the Ahmadiyya system of Khilafat won’t last forever, he also writes that Ahmadi’s can physically kill other Ahmadi’s if that situation ever arises. He was talking about the wars between India and Pakistan and he knew that there were Ahmadi’s in heavy numbers in both military’s.
“The khilafat in the Jama‘at will not remain in its pure form forever, but will degenerate into a hereditary institution after the first four khalifas. Apparently, Mirza Bashir Ahmad drew a parallel with the history of the early khalifas of Islam, when after the first four khalifas, who were truly worthy of holding this office, the headship deteriorated into a worldly monarchy in which succession was by descent, and not by the true Islamic worth of a person.” (Translation and quotation directly to the statement of Zahid Aziz, who is a Lahori-Ahmadi top scholar).
His speech at the Ahmadiyya Jalsa in 1959 is turned into a book called “The Life of the Good”, in Urdu its called “Seerat-e-Tayyiba”. He writes, ‘The Future of Ahmadiyya” (1960) as his brother, the Khalifa is paralyzed and incapacitated. In this book, he writes that the Ahmadiyya Khilafat wouldn’t last past the 4th Khalifa. The book is published again in 1970 as a second edition. The second edition is the cleanup job, all of the first editions were destroyed.
He writes “Islam and Communism”.

He died in Rabwah was buried there in Bahishti Maqbara.
