Dr. Abdus Sattar Shah was a British government official employee, he worked as some type of doctor, he seems to have been a student of the famous Syed Abdul Latif. By 1907, he was living in Qadian and tending to Mirza Mubarak Ahmad. He was chosen to give his infant daughter in marriage for MGA’s dying son, Mirza Mubarak Ahmad. They were married per some weird desi custom wherein marrying off a dying kid might somehow save his life. In 1915, the Ahmadiyya Movement told the world that he was addicted to Opium (see the scan in the below, via Tadhkiratul Mahdi). He sided with the Qadiani-Ahmadi’s and remained loyal to the Mirza family after 1914. In the 1917-1921 era, he agreed to marry off the same daughter (who had already married Mirza Mubarak Ahmad) to the Khalifa. She was very young, barely 10-11 years old. She is the famous mother of Mirza Tahir Ahmad, she was affectionately called Umme-Tahir by her inner circle and outer circle of Ahmadi’s. Syeda Maryam was dead by 1944, her cause of death is unknown, she was roughly 37. A great-grand-daughter of Dr. Abdus Sattar Shah is Fauzia Faizi, she recently gave an interview wherein she exposed the level of incest and rape that existed in the household of Mirza Basheer-uddin Mahmud Ahmad. Fauzia Faizi is the niece of Mirza Tahir Ahmad, her mom’s female cousin is married to Mirza Tahir Ahmad. Fauzia Faizi is also a second or third cousin of Mirza Masroor Ahmad’s wife (Subuhee or Amatul Sabooh).
Dr. Abdus Sattar Shah also sent his daughter to Qadian for 3 months to give MGA massages and operate a fan. He is mentioned in the ROR of May 1930. At this point, he had already moved to Qadian. He had retired from government service in 1925.
The 7th wife of the Khalifa, Mehr Appa was a grand-daughter of Dr. Abdus Sattar Shah.

The Khalifa, Mirza Basheer-uddin Mahmud Ahmad see’s Maryam walking in Qadian, he soon asks to marry her (1917)
Maryam was barely 10 years old, the Khalifa saw her walking in Qadian and seems to have fell in love. He married her officially 4 years later in 1921 (see Fazl e Omar, page 215). We think she was 14 at the time that she was taken home by the Khalifa.
_____________________________________________________________________________________________She seems to be the same age as Amtul Hai
Syeda Maryam became the 3rd wife of the Khalifa. We are not sure if she was given a separate house or not. Amtul Hai must have been close by, we are also unclear on her living arrangements. Amtul Hai was roughly 17-18 in this era. In Fazl-e-Omar we are told that Syeda Maryam famously didn’t get along with both of her husbands wives. The Khalifa left British-India for the UK in 1924, while he was gone, both of his young wives seem to have written letters begging for help, they claimed that the Khalifa was raping their daughters and etc.
On page-7, the life of Dr. Abdul Sattar Shah is discussed, as well as him opium addiction.
He is mentioned in the ROR of March-April-May 1922 under a translation of the book by Ahmad Noor Kabuli.
Amtul Hai dies mysteriously in 1924, after the Khalifa returns from London
_____________________________________________________________________________________________Syeda Maryam dies in 1944, Mirza Tahir Ahmad is 17 years old
The cause of death is not officially given. Nor are the details given. A few weeks after she died, the Khalifa married another woman, thus bringing his current wife count to 4. WIFE #7
Bushra Begum aka Mehar Appa, married on 24 July 1944, daughter of Syed Aziz Ahmad Shah
Fifth Khalifa quotes the following in his book ‘Conditions of Ba’it and our Responsibilities’ starting on Page 268.
“There is an incident about Sayyed ‘Abdus Sattar Shah ra exemplifying the tenth condition of bai‘at that the bond of love with the Promised Messiah as shall be unprecedented. In 1907, the youngest son of the Promised Messiah as, Sahibzadah Mirza Mubarak Ahmad fell ill with severe typhoid fever. Someone during those days had a dream that Mubarak Ahmad was getting married. The people skilled in interpreting dreams have written that if the marriage seen in a dream is with an unknown woman, it means death. Some of them think that if such a dream is carried out literally, the death may be averted. The person who had seen the dream mentioned it and its possible interpretation to the Promised Messiah as. He agreed and said: ‘The interpreters of dreams believe that the interpretation is death, but sometimes to fulfil the dream literally may avert this outcome. Let us, therefore, get Mubarak Ahmad married.’ Though that child was too young to know anything about marriage, the Promised Messiah as took the thought in consideration.
When Hudur was saying the above, by chance (Sayyedah Sa‘idatun-Nisa’) the wife of Doctor Sayyed ‘Abdus Sattar,ra who was a guest, happened to be in the courtyard of the house. The Promised Messiah as saw her, and calling her over told her that he wished to arrange marriage for Mubarak Ahmad and said, You have your daughter Maryam. If you like we can marry her to Mubarak Ahmad. She replied that she had no objection but if Hudur would permit, she wanted to consult her husband. During those days late Doctor Sahib ra and his family were staying in the Round Room of the house. She went downstairs but he was not there. When he returned, she talked to him in the following words: ‘When someone enters the religion of Allah the Almighty, his faith is tested. Should Allah the Almighty test your faith by a trial, will you be steadfast?’ She had two things on her mind causing her to think that her husband might hesitate to make a decision in that matter. One was that till then no girl of his family was ever married to a non-Sayyed, and secondly Mubarak Ahmad was critically ill and he himself was treating him. He might think that that marriage was risky as it had ninety-nine percent chance of failure; and soon their daughter might have the stigma of widowhood. For these reasons she was afraid that her husband might show weakness and thus lose his faith. When she asked him: ‘If Allah the Almighty should test you with a trial, will you be steadfast?’ He replied: ‘I hope that Allah the Almighty shall grant me steadfastness.’ On hearing this, she told him the whole story that the Promised Messiah as had suggested that they may agree to marry Maryam with Mubarak. On hearing this he said: ‘Well, if the Promised Messiah as likes it, why should we have any objection?’ On hearing this, she started to cry and involuntarily tears started to flow from her eyes. ‘What is the matter? Do you not like this relationship?’ asked the late Doctor Sahib. The wife replied, ‘I like the arrangement. The thing is when the Promised Messiah as asked about this marriage (nikah), my heart was beating fast with anxiety and I was afraid that you may lose your faith [by refusing the proposal]. Now on hearing your answer, I cannot stop my tears due to happiness.’ So this marriage (nikah) was performed and after a few days, as the illness of Mubarak Ahmad was terminal, that girl became a widow. (Daily Al-Fadl, August 1, 1944, pp. 1–2, taken from Hadrat Doctor Sayyed ‘Abdus Sattar Shah Sahib, pp. 122–124)”
The age of the young girl at that time was 2 1/2 years and the groom was 8 years old. The marriage remained for less than a week before she became a widow.
“..The young girl, who was completely oblivious to the concept of marriage owing to her age, began to be referred to as a widow. At the time, Maryam was two and a half years old..”(Second Khalifa in Meri Maryam, Anwar-ul-Ulum, Vol. 17, pp. 347-372; Al Fazl, 12 July 1944, pp. 1-8) published in Al Hakam.
(Meri Maryam, Anwar-ul-Ulum, Vol. 17, pp. 347-372; Al Fazl, 12 July 1944, pp. 1-8) published in Al Hakam.(https://www.alhakam.org/my-maryam/
“[Maryam] was extremely thin and had certain facial features that were not very pleasant to me. Similarly, she had a strong Punjabi accent and I detest the usage of Punjabi in our home. She was somewhat facetious in nature and while speaking in Urdu, she would often deliberately mix Punjabi words in her sentences to irritate me.
As she was her parent’s favourite child, if she did not like something, it would irritate her and make her cry profusely, causing a stream of tears. At times, she would cry incessantly for a couple of days. Perhaps this was due to traces of hysteria..”
MGA told Dr. Syed Abdus Sattar Shah about a revelation (roughly after 1902)
“”Dr. Sayyed ‘Abdus-Sattar Shah narrates that the Promised Messiahas said:
Very close to this Minaret, two angels appeared before me [in a vision]. They had with them two sweet loaves of bread. They gave those loaves to me, saying: One is for you and the other is for your followers.””1274 [Siratul-Mahdi, part 3, Riwayat no. 885, p. 263]
1274 note—Note by Hadrat Maulana Jalal-ud-Din Shamsra: This dream is published under About 1874, page 23, where one angel and a nan is mentioned; and word dervishes is used instead of followers. If it is the same dream, there may be some lapse in the memory of the narrator. Or it may be a different vision. [Allah knows best.]
(((See 2009 online edition of Tadhkirah, page 1063)))
Dr. Syed Abdus Sattar Shah gets beat up for the cause of Ahmadiyya, but converts someone in the process
In this book, compiled by Ahmadi’s, it is written how Dr. Shah argued with a Non-Ahmadi Muslim, until his head was busted open. The person who busted his head open feared that he was going to get arrested and given 20+ years in jail. That person then converted to Ahmadiyya and NO crime was ever reported. Its a fishy story.
_____________________________________________________________________________________________From (Ashab e Ahmad by Malik Salahuddin. Nazir-Taleem-o-Tarbiyat, Secretary-Bahishti-Maqbara-Anjuman-Ahmadiyyah-Qadian, Vol-1 page 60). Ashab e Ahmad is quoted herein quite a bit.
Mirza Mubarak, the son of MGAQ was born in 1899. He was suffering from a fatal disease since his birth. Dr. Khalifa Rashiduddin and Dr. Syed Abdul Sattar Shah were his physicians.
One day somebody watched a dream that Marriage ceremony of Mubarak Ahmad has taken place. The dream expert was consulted who told that the dream indicates of the death of Mubarak Ahmad. However Somebody advised that Mubarak may be married to a girl to avoid the death.
In those days Dr. Abdul Sattar Shah and his family were staying in Qadian. MGAQ asked Mrs. Abdul Sattar Shah to marry their 2 years old girl Maryam to Mubarak. Although Dr. Abdul Sattar Shah knew that Mubarak is suffering from a dangerous disease, yet he agreed to the proposal due to his affection with his Peer. However this superstitious move did not work and eventually Mubarak Ahmad died at the tender age of 9 years. This gave a blow to the superstitions of Mirza Qadiani .
