His daughter was married to the son of MGA. Mirza Basheer-ud-Din Mahmud Ahmad had 9+ children with the daughter of Dr. Khalifa Rasheed-ud-Din. Incidentally, his other daughter was married to a non-Ahmadi Muslim in Qadian and on the same day (in 1902). Nevertheless, this other daughters children seem to have been eventually married into Ahmadi’s. One of her daughters was married off to Bashir Ahmad Orchard, the first English-Ahmadi-imam. They had 5 children, 3 boys and 2 girls. We are not sure about her other children and where they went. He was a MBBS physician.
He is mentioned as part of the first 313 Ahmadi’s list.
His daughter is married to the son of MGA, Mirza Basheer-ud-Din Mahmud Ahmad, she is barely 10 years old.
He is made a member of the Sadr Anjuman.
1908—When MGA died
He wrote an article on 24 May 1908, two days before the death of Mirza Ghulam Ahmad, which was published in the Ahmadiyya newspaper Badr shortly after Hazrat Mirza’s death in its issue dated 11 June 1908 on the front page and page 2. Go here to view scanned images of the entire article from Badr.
When the Khalifa died in 1914
It so happened that looking in the issues of the Urdu edition of the Review of Religions, I found that every issue contains at the end accounts of the income and expenditure of the Sadr Anjuman Ahmadiyya for the previous month. Looking at some issues prior to the Split, I noticed that the accounts are signed off by the muhasib (accountant or auditor) whose name is given as Khalifa Rashid-udDin. This gentleman was father-in-law of Mirza Mahmud Ahmad, and after the Split he was in the Qadiani Jamaat. So here we find a prominent Qadiani keeping an eye on the accounts of the Sadr Anjuman Ahmadiyya even long before the Split!
The April 1914 issue does not present the accounts for March 1914, but the May 1914 issue (under control of the Qadiani Jamaat) presents accounts for both March 1914 and April 1914. I have extracted pages 193-194 and 195-196 of that issue showing these accounts for March and April. See this link.
The monthly accounts carry several headings such as education, the poor, school, propagation of Islam, etc. Under these headings there is a figure for the total of funds carried forward from the previous month (sabiqa baqaya), and then, after income and expenditure, the remaining total for the current month (baqaya).
In the end of March accounts I have marked in red all the baqaya entries, which are eight in all. In the end of April accounts I have marked in red all the eight sabiqa baqaya entries, i.e. the totals carried forward from end of March accounts to end of April accounts.
As far as I can see, each of these totals as it was at the end of March 1914, when Maulana Muhammad Ali was in Qadian, is exactly the same as the corresponding “carried forward” total at the end of April, by which time Maulana Muhammad Ali had left Qadian and these funds were in the hands of the Qadiani Jamaat!
This, if I am right, is absolute and positive proof, coming from a Qadiani Jamaat publication, that all the funds of the Sadr Anjuman Ahmadiyya remained with the Qadiani Jamaat after Maulana Muhammad Ali left Qadian, and he took nothing.
Before he died, he became inactive in the Qadiani-Jamaat
It is said, from Lahori-Ahmadi’s that I know, that he eventually left the Qadiani Jamaat and moved to Lahore and re-started his medical practice. He did not turn against QK2, as his daughter was married to him, but became inactive in Qadiani Jamaat. He did not join Lahore Ahmadiyya Movement.
