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 was breast fed by Rasool Bibi (the wife of MGA’s toilet attendant Shaikh Hamid Ali). Ahmadiyya sources claim that he was in college from 1909-1916 and that he graduated in 1916 with M.A. in Arabic, however, this is a lie. He wrote the famous Kalimatul Fasl, which appeared in the urdu version of the ROR  in 1915, and was made into a book in 1916. The first time that he was listed as “M.A.” was in the November-1916 edition of the English-ROR. From Jan-1923 to April 1932 he was listed as the editor of the ROR.

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.
_____________________________________________________________________________________________MGA’s death

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

7—daughter—Sahibzadi Amatul Bari Begum Sahiba (1923–2015).

8–daughter—Amatul Majeed (1927-1998). She was married to the Ahmadi officer, Major Waqiuz Zaman in roughly 1954 (see page 4). They were married in 1954, they had 2 daughters it seems, and 2 son-in-laws, who are both Waqf-e-Zindagi.

9–daughter—Amtul Latif Bagum sahiba (at the 3:02 mark). She married Syed Muhammad Ahmad (son of Dr. Mir Muhammad Isma‘il). Syed Taalay, a volunteer with MTA-Ghana, who was killed on his way from Tamale to Accra, was her grandson.


In 2018, a book from some Qadiani-Ahmadi’s in Canada was published entitled, “From Sialkot to Vancouver”. In this book, they claim that Mirza Bashir Ahmad entered Government College in Lahore and was a roommate of Shamshad Ali Khan (see page 112)(the future father-in-law of Zafrullah Khan). However, the source was not given.

MM Ahmad was born.

He is named a member of the newly formed Anjuman Taraqi-e-Islam by his elder brother, the 2nd Khalifa, just a few days after the famous split.

In the ROR of June 1914, he writes an essay in the english ROR.

The ROR of Sep-1914 has an article by him entitled, “A Ceylon Missionary’s Attack on our Holy Prophet”.

His first few articles in jamaat newspapers began in April of 1915 (he was 23-24 years old) and they continued for many years. His jamaat took his essays and articles and put them into book form in 1916. 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.

The ROR of Jan-1915 has a review of Ahmadiyya literature by the “Ceylon Muslim Review”. Mirza Bashir Ahmad is mentioned as having written a refutation.

The ROR of March-1915 has an article by him entitled, “Some Objections Against Islam Refuted” (Part-1).

The ROR Of May-1915 has an article by him entitled, “Some Objections Against Islam Refuted” (Part-2).

The ROR of Aug-1916 has an essay by him entitled, “Some Objections Against Islam Refuted” (Part-3).

Per Ahmadiyya sources, he graduated with M.A. in Arabic, however, he never wrote anything in Arabic in his whole life, in fact it is unclear what institution gave him a Masters of Arabic. However, this is a lie. The first time that he was listed as “M.A.” was in the November-1916 edition of the English-ROR. Before November-1916, he wrote essay’s in the ROR and was never listed as “M.A.” or “B.A.” or anything (see the Aug-1916, March and May of 1915, Sep and June of 1914 and a few others).

The ROR of Nov-1916 has an essay by him entitled, “The Chief Points of Difference between the Ahmadiyya Community and the Orthodox Muslims (Part-1). In this essay, he talks about the finality of prophethood.

The ROR of Dec-1916 has an essay by him entitled, “The Chief Points of Difference between the Ahmadiyya Community and the Orthodox Muslims (Part-2). In this essay, he talks about the finality of prophethood.

The ROR of April-May-1917 has an essay by Mirza Bashir Ahmad entitled, “Christianity Before three torch-bearers”. He wrote another articled entitled, “The Chief Points of Difference between the Ahmadiyya Community and the Orthodox Muslims (Part-3). In this essay, he argues that Eisa (As) died in Kashmir and is Yuz Asaf. He even argued that if MGA was wrong in the assertion that Yuz Asaf=Eisa (as), it doesn’t effect his claim. 23:50 of the Quran is also quoted. He also argues that Eisa (as) lived to age 120. He has another article entitled, “The Holy Quran” (the opening sura of the Holy Quran). He has yet another article entitled, “Polygamy a necessity after The Great War”. 

The ROR of June-1917 has an essay by Mirza Bashir Ahmad entitled, “The Grand Mystery Underlying the Unusual Birth of Jesus Christ”, wherein he argues that Mary never met a man before she gave birth to Jesus (as). 

The ROR of July-1917 has an essay by Mirza Bashir Ahmad entitled, “The Lahore Health Officer on the Pardah System”. He wrote another articled entitled, “The Chief Points of Difference between the Ahmadiyya Community and the Orthodox Muslims (Part-4). In Part-4 he wrote about the Mahdi in Islam and even quoted Nawab Siddiq Hassan Khan and his utterances on this topic. 

The ROR of Aug-1917 has an essay by Mirza Bashir Ahmad entitled, “Ahmad did lay claim to Prophethood”. In this he argues that MGA only claimed partial prophethood before 1901. He quotes “Haqiqatul Wahy” extensively,  however, he avoids the famous comment by MGA wherein he said his prophethood was just a metaphor. Mirza Bashir Ahmad is in Bombay and looking to find people to convert to Ahmadiyya.

The ROR of Oct-Nov-1917 reports that he went to Delhi with a deputation of Ahmadi’s which was led by Zafrullah Khan and the 2nd Khalifa, this was in terms of the Indian Reforms. 


The Jan-1918 edition of the ROR reports that he is working a newly formed Ahmadiyya Community at Qadian (during the Spanish Flu) as a secretary of general affairs. He wrote an essay in the ROR of Oct-1918 entitled, “A Short Note on the Stages in the Moral Progress of Man and the Means of Their Attainment”. In the Aug-Sep-1918 edition of the ROR, Mirza Bashir Ahmad wrote an extensive position paper on the political turmoil of 1917 and the impending Government of India Act of 1919 aka Indian Reforms. Mufti Muhammad Sadiq presented the same in the UK as reported by the Aug-Sep-1919 edition of the ROR, in his memoranda, he lied and claimed there were 700,000 Ahmadi’s in the world.

The Mar-Apr-1919 edition of the ROR contains an announcement by Maulvi Sher Ali wherein he tells the world about the new book about the “Life of Muhammad” which is being written by Mirza Bashir Ahmad.

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. In the January edition of the ROR-1923, he is announced as the new editor of the ROR. Maulvi Muhammad Din (the previous editor) was sent to the USA for missionary work.
_____________________________________________________________________________________________He begins editing the works of MGA and other Ahmadi authors

He gets MGA’s date of birth pushed back to 1835

Ahmadiyya leadership about the Date-of-Birth of Mirza Ghulam Ahmad


The ROR of Jan-1932 has an essay by him entitled, “The Holy Prophet’s Treatment of Slaves and his Teaching About Slavery (Part-7)(translated by Maulvi Sher Ali).

The ROR of Feb-1932 has an essay by him entitled, “The Holy Prophet’s Treatment of Slaves and his Teaching About Slavery (Part-79)(translated by Maulvi Sher Ali).

Mirza Bashir Ahmad (M.A.) is mentioned in the ROR of March-1932, the ROR quotes a newspaper (Djawah Tengah Review) from Semereng, Java (modern day Indonesia) which appreciates the work of Mirza Bashir Ahmad (editor of the Review of Religions) and the effect it is having in Europe and America.
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. This was posted on the March-1934 edition of the ROR.

He is mentioned in the ROR of Jan-Feb-1934 about earthquakes.

He wrote a book entitled, “The Family of the Founder of the Ahmadiyya Movement”.

He writes, “Islam and Slavery”–

The ROR of May-1935 gives a small book review of Mirza Bashir Ahmad’s book, “Islam and Slavery”.

The ROR of Nov and Dec-1936 quotes the book of Mirza Bashir Ahmad in terms of Khatamun Nabiyeen.

Mirza Bashir Ahmad complains of bloody diarrhea in the Al-Fazl, see brother Zia’s video herein (1:55:06 mark).



Mirza Bashir Ahmad writes “Silsila Ahmadiyya”.

Mirza Bashir Ahmad beefs with Muhammad Ali (lahori-ahmadi) on the topic of funeral prayers for Non-Ahmadis.

The second edition of Kalimatal Fasl was published again in 1941.

He flees 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. 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”.
