Intro
In May of 1888, MGA’s cousins and near relations gave a letter which was from MGA to Mirza Ahmad Beg to some Christian missionaries and those missionaries had this letter published in many newspapers.  Another announcement was published on July 15th, 1888.  It should be noted that all of these announcements have already been tampered with and have thus been backdated to fit the Ahmadiyya narrative of death to their opponents.  The announcement of July 10th, 1888 was also mentioned in “Sabz Ishtihar”, in english as “The Green Announcement”, see page 8 and 19.  In fact, MGA was already connecting his marriage to Muhammadi Begum with the Promised Son prophecy of Feb 20th, 1886.  MGA was indirectly asserting that the Promised Son would be born from his 3rd marriage (with his niece, Muhammadi Begum), see also Ainah-Kamalate Islam (1893).

The announcement via Tadhkirah

“”””This man’s [Mirza Ahmad Baig Hoshiarpuri’s] sister had been married to a cousin of mine whose name was Ghulam Husain. He disappeared twenty-five years ago and has not been heard of since. His land was recorded in the government records in the name of this man’s sister, the reversion of which belongs to us. In the recent settlement of land, which is in District Gurdaspur, the said Mirza Ahmad Baig desired—with the consent of his sister—to have the
land, which was valued at four or five thousand rupees, recorded in the name of his son Muhammad Baig as a gift from Ahmad Baig’s sister and a deed of gift was executed by the sister. As this deed could not be effective without our consent, the said Ahmad Baig turned to us with great humility and meekness and begged us to attest the deed of gift. I was inclined to make this attestation and then the thought passed through my mind that, as it had been my  custom to supplicate by way of istikharah on all important matters, I should do the same on this occasion. This was the reply I returned to Mirza Ahmad Baig. Thereafter, on account of his continued persistence I supplicated in the form of istikharah. What an istikharah it was! It seemed that the time of begging Allah for a heavenly Sign had come, which God Almighty had displayed in this way. The All-Powerful, the All-Wise God directed me to ask for the hand of the elder daughter of Ahmad Baig in marriage and to tell them that all kindness and courtesy to be extended to them would be conditional upon this marriage and that this marriage would be a source of blessing and a Sign of mercy for them and that thereby they would become participants in all the blessings and mercies set out in the Announcement of February 20, 1886, but if they declined this offer, the girl would suffer great distress. In such case, the person whom she marries would die within two and a half years of the date of the marriage and her father would die within three years of that date. The death is decreed within three years of the marriage. It is not, however, necessary that he would not suffer some misfortune before the expiry of that term. Some of the visions indeed indicated earlier afflictions, [And Allah knows best]. And [I was also told that] the family would be afflicted with differences and privations and
misfortunes and that this daughter would encounter many disgraceful and sorrowful events during the intervening period.

In those days, when I repeatedly sought detail and particularization, I was told that God had determined that after removing every obstacle He would in the end bring about the marriage of the elder daughter of Ahmad Baig with me and would thereby bring the faithless back to faith
and the erring back to guidance. The Arabic revelation in this context is:

Meaning that [Arabic] They have rejected Our Signs and they had already been mocking. To
frustrate the activities of all those who are interfering in this matter, Allah will be your Helper. God will ultimately bring her back to you. There is none who can change the words of Allah. Your Lord is the Powerful One, and whatever He determines to do, takes place. You are with Me and I am with you. Soon you will be granted a praiseworthy station, meaning that though the foolish and ignorant ones will say all sorts of disagreeable things out of their evil and suspicious minds, and will utter worthless words, but in the end, observing the support of God, they will feel ashamed. And when the truth is established everyone will give expression to praise.  [Announcement of July 10, 1888, Majmu‘ah Ishtiharat, vol. 1, pp. 157–159](See Also, the 2009, online version of Tadhkirah, pages 201-204).

“””Mirza Imam-ud-Din and Nizam-ud-Din, as well as all the Arya living here and Lekhram Peshawari and hundreds of other people know it well that I had made a prophecy about
him [Mirza Ahmad Baig of Hoshiarpur] in general terms, namely that someone named Ahmad Baig from among our relatives is about to die.””””  [Announcement July 10, 1888, Majmu‘ah Ishtiharat, vol. 1, pp. 159–160](See Also, the 2009, online version of Tadhkirah, page 188).

The July 15, 1888 Announcement
“””[Arabic] I saw this woman [the mother-in-law of Ahmad Baig of Hoshiarpur, who was the grandmother of Muhammadi Begum and mother of Mirza Imam-ud-Din] and noticed the marks of weeping on her face and said to her: ‘O Woman repent, repent, for misfortune is pursuing your progeny and affliction is about to descend upon you. He [Mirza Ahmad Baig] will die and will be survived by several dogs.””” {Announcement of July 15, 1888 a sequel to the Announcement of July 10, 1888, Majmu‘ah Ishtiharat, vol. 1, p. 162](See Also, the 2009, online version of Tadhkirah, page 188).

On further consideration the following meaning has been brought to my mind about the revelation:

[Arabic]…Allah will suffice you…

God will send down His Signs of wrath upon all those members of our collaterals and brotherhood who, on account of their faithlessness and support of innovations, would seek to obstruct the fulfilment of the prophecy. God will fight them and will afflict them with diverse types of chastisement and will send down misfortunes upon them of which they have no concept at present and there will not be one of them who will escape such chastisement for their opposition proceeds from their faithlessness and not from any other source.  [Announcement of July 15, 1888, Majmu‘ah Ishtiharat, vol. 1, pp. 160–161] (See Also, the 2009, online version of Tadhkirah, page 206).

“”I stood in no need of seeking this match. Allah the Almighty had provided for all my needs. He had bestowed children upon me, among them a son who will be the lamp of the faith. He has also promised another son within a short time whose name will be Mahmud Ahmad and who
will prove a person of high resolve in his undertakings.”””” [Announcement of July 15, 1888, Tatimma Ishtiharat, July 10, 1888, Majmu‘ah Ishtiharat, vol. 1, pp. 161–162].  (See Also, the 2009, online version of Tadhkirah, page 207).
