Intro
MGA lost one court case against him in his career.  It is the case of MGA vs. Karam ud Din.  I have collected some bits and pieces of info here.   In January 1903, on behalf of Moulvi Karam Deen of Bheen District Jhelum, and Moulvi Faqeer Mohammad, Editor of Sirajul Akhbaar Jhelum, Hadhrat Sheikh Yaqoob Ali Editor of Al Hakam and Hadhrat Hakeem Fazal-ud-Deen of Bhera who were being sued in connection with a booklet, ‘Saif Chishtian’ by Peer Mehar Ali who was custodian of the Goalrah Shrine.  On Oct-16th, 1903, MGA left Qadian for Gurdaspur (see NOV/DEC-1903—ROR).  MGA and Hakeem Fazal Din lost this case in 1904 (exact date unknown), and were about to be thrown in jail, however, they made bail (700 rupees) and were released.  About a year later, they won on appeal in early 1905.  It was a Judge european Judge named Mr. Hurry, he was the sessions judge of Amritsar.

December 6, 1902
(A) Last night I was in such a state that if I had not received Divine revelation, I would have been proved right in thinking that my last moment had arrived. While I was in this condition, I was overtaken by sleep and saw in my dream that I was in a cul-de-sac and three buffaloes (636)
were coming towards me. When one of them approached me I beat it away and the same happened with the second one. Then the third advanced towards me. I felt that it was so
strong that there was no way of deliverance from it. While this was passing through my mind, Allah the Almighty so ordained that it turned away. Taking advantage of this I slipped through brushing against it and began to run. I was thinking that it would be running after me but I did not look back. Then the following Prayer was inspired by Allah the Almighty in a dream upon my heart:

637–Arabic O my Lord everything serves You. So O my Lord, protect me and help me and have mercy on me. [Publishers]

638--al-Hakam, vol. 6, December 10, 1902, p. 10, reports that the Promised Messiahas said:
This prayer is an amulet and protection… I will henceforth make this supplication regularly in my Prayers, and you should also do it.

He also said:

The greatest matter in it, which teaches the True Unity—that is, assures that Allah the Glorious alone can cause any harm or impart any benefit—is that it teaches us that [O Allah] everything is in Your service, and no harmful thing can cause any damage without Your will and permission.

It was conveyed to me that this is the great name of God and that whoever supplicates in these terms would be delivered from every affliction. [al-Badr, vol. 1, no. 7, December 12, 1902, p. 54 and al-Hakam, vol. 6, no. 44, December 10, 1902, p. 10].

(B) Of the Signs shown in my favour is one in which God, the All-Knowing and the Wise, informed me about a mean person and his great calumny against me and apprised me through His revelation that this man would attack me in order to humiliate me, but would himself become my target in the end. Allah the Almighty conveyed this to me in the course of three dreams. He disclosed to me in a dream that this enemy of mine would engage three helpers in my opposition to achieve success in his proceedings to dishonour me and to put me to trouble. I was shown in a dream that I was hauled into court like a prisoner but I was shown that I would be delivered in the end, though after an interval. I was also given the good news that the affliction would be reverted upon this lying mean enemy of mine himself.…. Then I began to wait for the developments as indicated in the prophecy. After the passing of a year, all this happened at the instance of Karam Din. (That is, he brought unjustified criminal charges against me).639 [Haqiqatul-Wahi, p. 215, Ruhani Khaza’in, vol. 22, p. 225].   

639—This Sign was originally published by the Promised Messiahas in Mawahib-ur Rahman in Arabic and Persian. Later, in Haqiqatul-Wahi, he published the same in Urdu. Our English rendering is based upon the Urdu citation in Haqiqatul-Wahi. [Munawar Ahmed Saeed]

secret. When you are angry, I am angry and when you love, I also   love. You are to me like My Unity and My Uniqueness. So the time has come when you should be helped and be known among people. Allah praises you from His Throne. Allah praises you and is walking towards you. You have a high standing in My Presence. I have chosen you for Myself and your secret is My secret.

While in Lahore I received, repeatedly, the revelation: That is [Arabic] I shall show you My blessings from every side.658 [al-Hakam, vol. 7, no. 4, January 31, 1903, p. 15 and al-Badr, vol. 2, no. 1–2, January 23–30, 1903, p. 9].

658-–This prophecy was fulfilled in this wise* that when I approached Jhelum about ten thousand people came to see me. The road was choked with people in all sorts of humble attitudes as if they wanted to prostrate themselves. Then there was such a multitude of people around the District Courts that the Magistrates were greatly surprised. Eleven hundred men and two hundred women made the bai‘at and joined the Jama‘at. Karam Din’s complaint against me was dismissed. Many people made offerings and presented gifts out of good will and humility. Thus we returned to Qadian enriched in every way with God’s blessings and God fulfilled the prophecy very clearly. [Haqiqatul-Wahi, p. 252, Ruhani Khaza’in, vol. 22, p. 264].

I was pondering deeply about the result of the cases which have been filed against me by Karam Din and which some members of my Jama‘at [Community] have filed against him. In this condition, I received the revelation:

714—[Arabic] Verily, Allah is with those who are righteous and those who do good. In this there are Signs for questioners. [Publishers]

I was made to understand that of the two sides God will be with those and will bestow help and victory upon those, who are righteous—that is to say, who do not tell lies, do not wrong anyone, do not calumniate anyone, do not persecute people by cheating, deceiving, and dishonest dealing, and eschew every vice and adhere to truth and justice. And fearing God, they treat His servants with sympathy, goodwill and goodness, and are true wellwishers of mankind. They are not inspired by beastliness, wrongdoing and evil, and are ever ready to behave virtuously towards everyone. The final decision will be in their favour. At that time those who ask: ‘which of the two sides is in the right’ will be shown not one Sign but many Signs. [al-Badr, vol. 2, no. 24, July 3, 1903, p. 189 and al-Hakam, vol. 7, no. 24, June 30, 1903, p. 11].

al-Badr reports that the Promised Messiah[as] narrated the following dream upon rising in the morning:

I had taken up a pen to write. I observed that its point was broken. Thereupon I said: Put on to it one of the nibs that had been sent by Muhammad Afdal. While those nibs were being looked for, I woke up….

If someone would take the time out from worldly occupations and stay with me, he would witness a running river of prophecies being fulfilled like the one of yesterday concerning a pen.740[al-Badr, vol. 2, no. 37, October 2, 1903, p. 390].

740— al-Badr reports that:

After 10 a.m. the case brought by Karam Din against the Promised Messiahas and Hakim Fadl Din was brought up. Khwajah Sahib presented a request on behalf of Hakim Fadl Din that the charges made by Maulavi Karam Din are the same for the investigation of which I have brought a case against Karam Din. Therefore the present case should be postponed till the earlier cases are decided. The lawyers on both side entered into a debate on this issue and the court decided to
postpone the decision to the following day. In the evening the Promised Messiahas received the revelation: [Persian] Be glad and happy. On the 24th the case brought by Sheikh Ya‘qub ‘Ali Editor al- Hakam against Maulavi Karam Din and the Editor of Sirajul-Akhbar of Jehlum was to be heard. But since the testimony of the plaintiff was not available, the case was postponed to October 21, 1903. Since the court had not yet rendered a decision of the discussion of the previous day, Khwajah Sahib wanted to bring up additional legal points. After hearing him, the court decided after 1 p.m. that the plea for postponement be turned down. Thus the words of God, which He
conveyed to His apostle on the 22nd in the evening and which he had narrated on the morning of the 23rd were fulfilled. [al-Badr, vol. 2, no. 37, October 2, 1903, p. 390].

(B) In the case brought against me by Maulavi Karam Din at Gurdaspur, Karam Din insisted that the word la’im meant bastard and that the word kazzab meant one who always tells lies. The court of first instance accepted his contention. In those days I received the revelation:

806—[Persian] We do not approve of any other meaning. [Publishers]

I understood this as indicating that the interpretation of the first court would not be upheld on appeal; and so it happened. The Divisional Judge rejected all the arguments advanced on behalf of Karam Din and held that la’im and kazzab were appropriate for Karam Din, who was
deserving of even stronger words.[Haqiqatul-Wahi, p. 380, Ruhani Khaza’in, vol. 22, p. 394].

A Maulavi named Karam Din filed some criminal charges against me in Gurdaspur and the maulavis opposed to me appeared as witnesses in the court of Atma Ram, the Extra Assistant Commissioner…. Atma Ram did not pay full attention to the merits and made up his mind to sentence me to imprisonment. Thereupon God conveyed to me that Atma Ram would be afflicted with the deaths of his children. I communicated this vision to the members of my
Jama‘at825. It so happened that within 20 or 25 days he lost two sons. In the end, though he had laid the foundation in his judgment of sentencing me to imprisonment, God held him back from that design, yet he imposed upon me a fine of 700 rupees. I was then honourably acquitted on appeal by the Divisional Judge. But Karam Din’s conviction and sentence were maintained. My fine was remitted but Atma Ram’s sons did not come back…. According to the Divine prophecy which had been published already in my book Mawahibur-Rahman, I was acquitted, my fine was refunded, and the issuing officer’s [Atma Ram’s] order was set aside and he was rebuked for issuing an improper order. But Karam Din (as I had already published in Mawahibur- Rahman) was convicted and punished and the judgment of the court confirmed his being a liar. [Haqiqatul-Wahi, pp. 121–122, Ruhani Khaza’in, vol. 22, pp. 124–125].

825—Note by Maulana Abdul Latif Bahawalpuri: Qadi Muhammad Yusuf, Amir Jama‘at Ahmadiyyah, Frontier Province writes in his book Sawanih Zuhur-e-Ahmad Ma‘ud:

The Promised Messiahas saw in a dream that a lion has taken away both sons of Atma Ram. At the same time as the Promised Messiahas narrated this dream, Atma Ram received a telegram that his son is suffering from plague. Two sons of his died one after the other with plague. [Zuhur-e-Ahmad Mau‘ud, pp. 51–52].

Chaudhry Muhammad ‘Ali Khan Ashraf Head Master Bairam Pur narrated that:

The Promised Messiahas said at the time of ‘Asr Prayer one day before judgment was to be delivered in the case of Karam Din… that he had seen in his dream that he was returning home riding a white horse and his wife said (something like): We have suffered a loss (probably of money). The Promised Messiahas said to her: That does not matter as I have returned safe.

The Promised Messiahas interpreted the dream that the Magistrate (who was a bigoted Arya, and was bent upon giving the decision against the Promised Messiah) would sentence him to a fine, but nothing more. However, on appeal he would be acquitted and would thus be made
secure against the mischief of the Magistrate. That is exactly what happened the next day; he was sentenced to a fine, which was immediately paid … and on appeal [he was acquitted and] the fine was remitted.[al-Hakam, vol. 38, no. 3, January 28, 1935, p. 4].

At that time the case was called and when we returned to the shed, the Promised Messiahas said to Maulavi Sahib [Nur-ud-Din]: I have seen in a vision that
my handkerchief had fallen in a pool of water but was recovered. He interpreted this as meaning that he would be sentenced to a fine which would be remitted. And that is what happened.[Register Riwayat-e-Sahabah, vol. 3, p. 114]

Miyan Allah Yar Contractor of Batala narrates through Maulavi Ghulam Nabi Misri that:
At the end of the case in Gurdaspur, when the Promised Messiahas was about to leave for Batala for the return journey to Qadian, he received a vision or a revelation:

[Urdu] The route via Batala is dangerous.

The Promised Messiahas asked for the carriages to be brought, and three of them were brought. (He changed his route and commenced the journey.) He explained the reason for the change of route. In the meantime a rath (bullock chariot) had been sent from Qadian to Batala to meet him. Instead of the Promised Messiahas some of his companions including Sheikh Ya‘qub ‘Ali, travelled in it. When they arrived at the canal bridge, they found that some of the opponents from Massanian and Batala were pretending to hold a meeting. They had conspired to waylay the Promised Messiahas at the bridge and throw him into the canal. ….When the chariot approached the bridge it was surrounded by the crowd of opponents… and there was
a skirmish… but when they discovered that the Promised Messiahas was not in the chariot, they apologised for the assault. [Register Riwayat-e-Sahabah, vol. 10, pp. 280–281].

Summary written by Syed Hasanat Ahmad (2010)

The publication of the book had an instant impact. It published a prophecy of the Promised Messiahas about Maulavi Karam Din. The book was published on January 15, 1903, by special efforts of the press workers in Qadian and carried the news that Maulavi Karam Din would attempt to involve the Promised Messiahas in criminal cases and the Promised Messiahas was divinely informed that he would be honourably acquitted from these cases. The publication had to be completed before that date as Maulavi Karam Din had already moved the Extra Assistant Commissioner of Jhelum to issue warrant of arrest of the Promised Messiahas under Section 500, 501 and 502 of the Criminal Procedure Code and the date of hearing was fixed on January 17, 1903. The issuance of warrant of arrest provided yet another occasion to opponents to raise an uproar against the Promised Messiahas and they were clamouring a severe punishment for him. The trip from Qadian to Jhelum became historic in several ways. Giving details of the journey in a later publication (Haqiqatul-Wahi), the

Promised Messiahas said:

When I was on my way to Jhelum in connection with a case filed by Maulavi Karam Din, I had a revelation: “I (God) will shower blessings upon you from all directions.” I related the revelation to the people of my Jama‘at and this revelation came true in this manner that, when I reached Jhelum, about ten thousand people came to see me and most of them had lined up on the roads. Such a crowd had assembled in the court that it had amazed the authorities. About
eleven hundred people came to me for bai‘at and about two hundred of them were women. The case filed by Maulavi Karam Din was dismissed and a large number of people made offerings in cash and kinds to show their regard and respect for me. And this was how I was showered with the Divine blessings and returned to Qadian victoriously. (Haqiqatul-Wahi, p. 252, Sign No. 101, Ruhani Khaza’in, vol. 22, pp. 263-264).

Summary written by Syed Hasanat Ahmad (2010)

Padre ‘Imad-ud-Din, a native convert from Islam, was a paid servant of the Christians for a long time. He had already made himself notorious by his rabid and scurrilous attacks upon the Holy Founder of Islam. His books Tarikh-e-Muhammadi and Hidayatul-Muslimin had inflicted deep wounds upon religious susceptibilities of the Muslims. Even the Ra’i Hind and Prakash of Amritsar had protested against his bitter attacks. Another Hindu paper, Aftab-e- Punjab had
also condemned his writings. Muslims exposed this paid preacher of Christians in a book entitled ‘Uqubatud Dallin. Even the organ of the American Mission, Shamsul Akhbar of Lucknow had admitted the abusive nature of Padre ‘Imad-ud-Din and his colleagues Maulavi
Karam Din, Nizamud Din, Ilahi Bakhsh, Hamidullah Khan, etc., who were called Maulavis and learned men to deceive the public. The Promised Messiahas offered five thousand rupees as a reward if they could jointly produce a book like the one entitled Nurul-Haqq (Life of
Ahmad by A.R. Dardra, edition of 2008, pp. 412-413).

Ahmadas had felt the need of a press at Qadian as early as 1892. An Ishtihar was issued and a fund was opened for this purpose; but, it appears satisfactory arrangements could not be made at that time. Sh. Nur Ahmadra brought his press, Riyad-e-Hind, from Amritsar and A’ina Kamalat-e-Islam was then printed at Qadian. After that Hakim Fadal Dinra started a press at
Qadian in 1895. It was named Diya’ul Islam. This press produced Ahmad’sas publications at cost price (Ahmad’sas statement in Karam Din’s case, Section 420. I.P.C. dated. 19.8.1903). It was for this reason that Ahmadas produced, on 15.8.1898 a detailed account of this press in the income tax case. (See statement of Hakim Fadl Din in Karam Din’s case on 20.7.1903).

Statements Under Oath of Maulavi Muhammad ‘Ali in the Court

14) a. In the presence of Promised Messiahas, Maulavi Muhammad ‘Ali appeared as a witness on May 13, 1904. On being questioned by Khwaja Kamal-ud-Din he said:

Anyone who denies the truthfulness of a Prophet is a great liar. Mirza Sahib has claimed to be a Nabi. His followers believe him to be true in this claim and his opponents consider him false. The Holy Prophetsa is true according to Muslims and false according to the Christians.

b. On June 16, 1904, in the presence of the Promised Messiahas, in response to the critique made by Maulavi Karam Din, Maulavi Muhammad ‘Ali said:

Mirza Sahib makes a claim of nubuwwat in his writings. The purport of his claim is that, “I am a Nabi but I have brought no new shari‘ah.” According to the Holy Qur’an anyone who treats such a true claimant as a liar is a great liar. (Court Proceedings, p. 362).

16) In the case of Maulavi Karam Din of Bhaiñ [District Jehlum], acting as attorneys, Khwaja Kamal-ud-Din and Maulavi Muhammad ‘Ali, submitted the following statement under the signature of the Promised Messiahas:

There is another view of the matter according to Mohamedan theology. One who belies a person claiming to be a Prophet is a kadhdhab [great liar] and this has been admitted by prosecution evidence. Now the complainant knew perfectly well that the first accused claimed that position and, notwithstanding that, he belied the accused. Consequently in religious terminology the complainant was a kadhdhab. (Proceedings Gurdaspur Court, p. 194).

Explaining the use of relevant quotes from other authorities, the Promised Messiahas stated that these quotes do not constitute plagiarism, otherwise everyone will be exposed to this charge. It so happened that Mian Shahabuddin and Maulavi Karam Din in their correspondence with the Promised Messiahas mentioned that most of the material appearing in Saif-e-Chishtiya’i written by Pir Mehar ‘Ali Shah is copied word by word from the notes of Maulavi Muhammad Hasan Faidi and these notes were written by him on the margins of the books I‘jazul-Masih and Shamse Bazighah and these books carrying marginal notes were bought. This is how the devious Pir was exposed who made the allegations that the Promised Messiahas had plagiarized whereas the same charge recoiled on him.

The Promised Messiahas also replied to criticism that Pir Mehar ‘Ali Shah made in his book, Saif-e-Chishtiya’i about the merit of the I‘jazul-Masih. The Promised Messiahas also established that the revelation made to him were revelation of high order. The Pir also made an allegation that the Promised Messiahas had been plagiarizing from Maqamat-e-Hariri but what actually transpired was that Pir Mehar ‘Ali Shah had himself plagiarized from the notes of Maulavi
Muhammad Hasan Faidi which the Maulavi had written marginally on the I‘jazul-Masih and Shamse Bazighah by Hadrat Maulavi Muhammad Ahsan Amrohi. This information was given by Mian Shahabuddin and Maulavi Karam Din in their letters to the Promised Messiahas. This whole correspondence has also been published in this book.

“””Then another case was filed against me in the court of Mr. Dowie, and was followed by yet another concerning income tax. By the grace of God, my innocence was established in all of them. Then came Karam Din’s case in which every effort was made against me and it was
assumed that the case would sound the death knell of this Jama‘at. Indeed, had the Jama‘at not been from God and had He not sustained and strengthened it, it would no doubt have been wiped out. People from one end of the country to the other lent their support to Karam Din. He
was aided and abetted in every way, so much so that some of the prosecution witnesses, despite their claim to beingreligious divines, testified to what was totally false. They went to the extent of alleging that despite being an adulterer, a transgressor and a libertine, I dared claim to be righteous. The case dragged on for a long time. During this period a number of heavenly signs appeared. At long last, the judgement was announced by the magistrate, who happened to be a Hindu, imposing a fine of five hundred rupees on me. But God had already informed me:

“The Superior Court acquits.”

Therefore, when the appeal was filed in the court of the Divisional Judge, he, in his God-given shrewdness, at once got to the bottom of the case and noted in the judgement that whatever I had written about Karam Din was absolutely correct and I had full right to do so. The judgement he passed has since been published. In the end, he acquitted me of the charge and ordered the refund of the fine. He also censured the trial court for letting the case linger so long.

Mirza Ghulam Ahmad’s poetry vs. Karam Din
See Durr-e-Sameen.  https://www.alislam.org/library/books/Durr-e-Sameen-English-Translation.pdf.  Pages 86 and 94

Page 86
Is it not strange that while you are His beloved,
The entire affairs are being carried out to my favour?
Then not only this that it has happened once, I see the bounties of God at each step.
Look at that man from Bheen whose named Karam Din,
Who even sacrificed his sleep for the sake of conflict,
For whose help there was fervour among the people and
Whose weaknesses were hidden by every enemy of truth,
Whose friend was every aggressor and strayed person,
For whose help came the Muslim clerics, (210)

Page 94
What a strange thingHe helps a disbeliever
That God Who was supposed to befriend the believers.
In your eyes, even Karam Din was one of the pious ones
Who aggressively attacked mefor no reason.
I was not without supportGod’s help was with me
God’s revelation repeatedly gave glad tiding of victory.
But he did not see mehis eyes were closed
Then, after retribution, he decked himself with eye salve.
In the offices123, his name still remains as a liar
Now he can’t erase this name until the Day of Counting. (130)
