Per Ahmadiyya sources she was a triple-niece of MGA. MGA was her uncle in 3 ways and maybe more, MGA’s sister (Murad Bibi) was married to her (Muhammadi Begum‘s) paternal big uncles. Per Ahmadiyya sources, she was born in 1874/75 (see Dard, page 330). She was thus 13-14 when MGA was asking to marry her per Ahmadiyya sources, however, she was most likely 9-10. MGA had most likely seen her as an infant, since he was her uncle in 3-4 ways, thus, he had seen her a lot. She seems to have been from Aima, this is also wherein MGA’s mother (Charagh Bibi) was from. From 1840-1855, MGA went to Aima many times in his youth. Her father was Mirza Ahmad Baig Hoshiarpur and her mother was Umar un-Nisa (the sister of Imam ud Din).

MGA and Mirza Ahmad Baig seem to have been friendly to each other even after MGA had his war with his cousins over land. Nevertheless, in 1888, Mirza Ahmad Baig met with MGA and asked MGA to sign over “lucrative” property rights which belonged to MGA’s cousin, Mirza Ghulam Hussain, who’s son, Mirza Ghulam Haider had went missing around 1865, and was co-incidentally married to Mirza Ahmad Baig’s sister. MGA responded by asking to marry Mirza Ahmad Baig’s 13-14-year old daughter, Mirza Ahmad Baig immediately refused. This kicked off a public war wherein the entire Mirza family was opposed to MGA. In fact, it is not too far-fetched to say that the life and career of MGA was shaped by his love of Muhammadi Begum. Birth of sons, death threats against others, Batalvi feud, Christian feud (Christian paper published letters to Muhammadi Begum family) which led to the Atham saga, which then led to the maseel maseeh and maseeh mauood stuff. MGA kept upping the ante. The whole ‘promised son’ seems like a ruse to get Muhammadi Begum’s dad interested in him, implying that if Muhammadi Begum marries MGA, the son would be the inheritor to all of his spiritual and worldly legacy.

Muhammadi Begum was married Sultan Muhammad on April 7th, 1892 (see Dard, page 334).

Muhammadi Begum died on 19 November, 1966, at Lahore, her funeral prayer was led by Molana Shahabuddin of Chowburji who was a disciple of Shaikhul Hind Molana Mahmoodul Hasan. She was buried in Qabrustan Miyani Sahib Lahore. In 2022, her grave was found by Khalid Mateen and his team of workers with KTV.

_____________________________________________________________________________________________January 1886

In 1888 MGA claims that he mentioned a prophecy to Mirza Ahmad Baig a few years back (See Dard, page 172). However, this is lie. MGA was on good relations with Mirza Ahmad Baig until his father died and court cases were issued between the Mirza family in terms of land disbursement wherein MGA lost (1884).
_____________________________________________________________________________________________Feb, 20th 1886

MGA publishes his famous announcement vs. Lekh Ram and about the Promised Son. By 1888, MGA was connecting his proposed marriage with Muhammadi Begum to this prophecy also.  
June 8th, 1886

Muhammadi Begum: Was the “Wahi” Rahmani or Shaitani?

MGA writes letters to Noorudin wherein he claims that his God is ordering him to marry again for a 3rd time, and to thus have 3 wives. These were published after MGA died, hence, they are tampered with.  In this letter he told Hakeem sahib that Allah had ordered him to have a third Nikah. He found two women, but Allah forbade him from marrying these two. The reasons given by Allah for forbidding marriage to one woman was, “Iski Qismat achi nahi”and for the other one, “Larki ki shakal achi nahi”. Those phrases meaning “She will have a bad fortune” and “She is not good looking.”
_____________________________________________________________________________________________June 20th, 1886

MGA writes another letter to Nooruddin wherein he says that he is afraid that he is commanded by his God to marry a 3rd time, and this is unavoidable (See Dard pages 173-174).
Maktubat-e-Ahmad Volume 2, Page 12 and 13.

>Letter No. 4


In the name of Allah, the Most Merciful, the Most Gracious,

We praise and pray for His Messenger, the most kind,

My master and respected brother Maulvi Nooruddin Sahib, Peace of Allah on you, Assalamu Alaikum, Rahmatullah Wa Barkatah, At this time, an advertisement is sent to your kind attention regarding the elimination of illusions of opponents. Because you are the claimant of Tashabba Farooqi(Resemblance to Omar Farooq) and this humble person has an extremely good opinion of you and considers you a wellwisher and a friend, that’s why my attention remains towards you. (As such) My heart desires that I should share with my friends the blessings of my glorious God, and get the reward of (publicly) expressing of blessings as per (12 وَأَمَّا بِنِعْمَةِ رَبِّكَ فَحَدِّثُ (الضحی

So, today I am telling you as well, my sincere friend, about an incident of a prophecy.

Perhaps it has been four months since it was revealed to this humble person that a son, all-powerful, perfect in outward appearance and inner qualities, will be bestowed to you. His name will be Bashir. So, until now, I had only assumed that perhaps that blessed child will be from the existing wife (Nusrat Jahan). Now, however, most of the revelations are happening in the matter that (indicate that) soon you will have to do another marriage and it has been decreed in the court of Allah that you will be given a wife of pious desposition and good character, (and) she will bear children. The surprising thing about this is that when this revelation took place, four fruits were given to me in the state of a dream, three of them were mango fruits. But one fruit was green and very big. It was not like the fruits of this world. Even if this (part) is not revelation,(rather a dream) at the moment, but it has been implanted in my heart that the fruit which is not from among the fruits of this world, is the blessed boy because there is no doubt that the fruits mean children and while on the one hand, the glad tiding of a pious wife has been given and at the same time a dream was shown with four fruits of which one fruit is of a different form, so this is what is understood. And Allah knows best

In recent days, two people had sought to arrange a new marriage(for me). But when Istikharah was done about them, the answer was given(by Allah) about one woman that her destiny is humiliation, neediness and dishonor and she is not worthy to be your wife. And about the other, it was indicated (by Allah) that she is not good looking. As if this was an indication of the fact that the glad tiding which has been given about the boy with good looks and good character, may be born from an appearance-wise pretty wife and (who is) also of a good character. And Allah knows best.

Now the opponents, blind of eyes, are objecting as to why a boy was not born this time? A friend has published advertisements in their rebuttal. But in my understanding, before the birth of this boy, it seems necessary that this third marriage should take place because there are signs of having children in this third marriage. Probably the time for this third marriage is near. Now let us see with whom the eternal will has destined its occurance. Revelations are happening frequently in this matter and there is a certain enthusiasm in the divine intention. (Arabic)And Allah does what He wills, and He has jurisdiction over all things.


Khaksar Ghulam Ahmad Afi Anhu

From Qadian, June 18, 1886
_____________________________________________________________________________________________February of 1888

Ahmadiyya sources tell us that in roughly February of 1888, Mirza Ahmad Baig seems to have came to Qadian and asked MGA to make a deal. The issue was that Mirza Ahmad Baig’s sister (Imam Bibi) had been married to MGA’s cousin: Mirza Ghulam Hussain.  Mirza Ghulam Hussain had went missing for roughly 25 years. He had lots of land in his and his wife’s possession, his wife possessed it for 25 years, however, per the rules of the Mirza family (Not Islam), if a person died with no heir, his land would revert to other family members. However, this is unislamic, we are unsure where this tradition came from, however, the Mirza family was always playing his land-grabbing game. Mirza Ahmad Baig and his sister (Imam Bibi) knew that when Imam Bibi would die, the land would revert to MGA at 50% (+Mirza Sultan Ahmad) and 50% to his cousins (see Nuzul ul Masih, via the 2009 online edition of Tadhkirah, pages 190-191) .  MGA knew that Mirza Ahmad Baig was desperate for concessions. MGA then asked for his daughter in exchange for signing over the property to Mirza Ahmad Baig’s sister.
_____________________________________________________________________________________________May 10th, 1888

The maternal uncles of Muhammadi Begum, Mirza Nizam-ud-Din and Mirza Imam-ud-Din, and also others of their party, not only publicized this matter verbally but also had Hazrat Mirza’s letters printed in newspapers to ensure the widest publicity. Thus, the Nur Afshan published a letter from MGA to Ahmad Baig (See Dard, page 172).
_____________________________________________________________________________________________June 1888

The Arya Patrika, Lahore, page 5 also covered the story (See Dard, page 172).
_____________________________________________________________________________________________July 10th, 1888

In his Ishtihar he declared that if she was not married to MGA her father would die within three years of her marriage to anyone else, and her husband would die within 30 months and that other calamities would also overtake the family. This was to be a sign for MGA’s cousins and relations, who dared to flout the authority of the Supreme Being (See Dard, page 330). This was also posted in Ainah Kamalate Islam:::

Aina Kamalat e Islam RK 5:288

“People with evil thinking clearly have my prophecy to test my falsehood or truthfulness, there is no better test. Moreover, it is not just me prophesying before the fulfilment of the prophecy but I had propagated this prophecy to the likes of Imam Din, Nizam Din, the Arya of this area. Moreover, Lekhram Peshawari and hundreds of others know of this. Regarding that many years ago the prophecy was that a man named Ahmad Beg from our clan would die… For an intelligent man it is sufficient that when this girl (Muhammadi Begum) had not gone through puberty, this prophecy was 5 years ago. At that time the girl was 8 or 9 years old. If to think about this as being a fabrication of thinking is not absurd then what else is it? Peace be upon those who follow the guidance.”

(Yours Humbly Ghulam Ahmad of Qadian Zillah Gurdaspur, Punjab July 10, 1888)


_____________________________________________________________________________________________July 15th, 1888

MGA publishes another announcement about his cousins and their upcoming deaths.
_____________________________________________________________________________________________August 1888

By August of 1888, the entire Mirza family was against MGA and his marriage proposal for his niece. The list includes all family members of MGA, which includes both of his sons, and all of his cousins (see Mujadid e Azim, online abridged version, pages 228-268, specifically page 253).
_____________________________________________________________________________________________Aug 1888 to July 1890

2 years of total silence on this topic. However, in the background, MGA was trying to bribe other cousins of his to help him get this niece of his tied into a marriage situation.
_____________________________________________________________________________________________ Izala Auham, roughly 1890, page 198

“”””By way of prophecy the Exalted God revealed it to this humble one that ultimately the elder daughter of Mirza Ahmad Beg, son of Mirza Ghulam Beg of Hoshiarpur would be married to me. These people would resort to great hostility and would place obstacles in the way, but in the end, it would surely take place. The Exalted God would, by all possible means, bring her to me, whether as a virgin or a widow, and would remove all impediments, and would, of necessity, fulfil this task, and none would be able to prevent it.”””
July 17th, 1890

MGA wrote a letter to Mirza Ahmad Baig offering him condolence at the death of his son, Mahmud (See Dard, page 331).
MGA says:

“””God Almighty will in any event bring Muhammadi Begum to me as a virgin or a widow and will remove all obstructions. He will certainly fulfill this and no one can obstruct Him.””” (Izalah Auham, p.296)(see also, B.A. Rafiq, “Truth About Ahmadiyya, online version,, Retrieved on 6-7-19).

Mirza Sahib told them a new Ilham. (RK vol.3 p.306) He said, “Soon after this prophecy was revealed and was yet to be fulfilled, just as it has not been fulfilled as yet, that is by April 16, 1891, this humble one encountered a severe ailment bringing me so close to death that I got even my will drawn up. At that critical moment the prophecy almost came before my eyes and it appeared that the last moment had come and that the next day would be my day of funeral. At that time I thought of this prophecy that may be it had some other meaning which I had not understood. Then in that critical condition I received the inspiration: This thing is truth from thy Lord. Why do you doubt?” (RK vol.3 p.306).

On 04 May 1891, Mirza Ghulam wrote a letter to Mirza Ali Sher Baig from Ludhiana. The contents of this letter have been translated in english are as under:-

My dear Mirza Ali Sher Baig Sallamahullahu taala

Assalamo alaikum wa rahmatullah.

God knows well that I don,t discriminate you and consider you a kind nature man and a person stead fast on religion Islam. The news I am giving you would pain you a lot. I want to leave those who call me a non issue and don,t care about religion. You know how much enmity has developed among the members of your house regarding my proposal for Muhammadi Begum.

Now I have come to know that her marriage is taking place to some other person on the third or fourth day after Eid festival. Your family is supporting this marriage in my opposition. You know the people supporting this marriage are enemy to me and enemy to Islam as well. They want to please christians and hindus to cause pain and humiliation to me. They have decided to put me under their sword. Only god can save me from them. Why don,t your family do their counselling in this regard. Do they think I was a Choora or Chamar (Janitor or sewerage worker), as if my proposal was an insult to them ? Now they are all in harmony with each other for the marriage of the girl and to oppose and leave me alone.

By the way I don,t care about their girls all I wanted is that the girl be married to me and her children to become my heirs, but they wanted me to be be humiliated and be a black faced one, but it is god that can humiliate whoever he wills. They want to put me into burning fire. I wrote to them not to break old relations. Your wife said she don,t care about relation with me she don,t even cared for if my son Fazal divorce Izzat Bibi. She said she is with her brother Ahmad Baig. She said she does not even care if this man (MGAQ) dies somewhere. Why did he survied while dying and wished if i would have died. These are the feelings of your wife reached to me.
Then I sent a letter to her through registered post saying If I was so bad a person in your opinion then you don,t have to continue relations with my Son Fazal I am writing him to divorce his wife Izzat Bibi. So the day Muhammadi Begum is married to someone else, Fazal Ahmad would divorce Izzat Bibi but if he did not do that, I will deprive him from the right of inheritance.

But if you fight Ahmad Baig for me and get his decision changed in my favour then I will advise Fazal Ahmad who is under my obedience to put every effort to keep Izzat Bibi happy at home. My wealth would be their wealth. Now you write to Ahmad Baig and refrain him from marrying Muhammadi Begum to someone else. Otherwise I swear upon god that I would break all my relations from them. If Fazal ahmad wants to have the right of my inheritance, he would have to do whatever I wish from him.

All these things have come to my knowledge through letters but I don,t know how much to believe them.

The scans


Bismillah, Nahmaduhu wa nusalli

Mother of Izzat Bibi should know that she and family are planning the marriage of Muhammadi Begum in few days. I have sworn upon god that I will break all my terms with them because of this marriage. So I am writing it as a well wisher to persuade your brother to stop this marriage. Do whatever you can. Otherwise I have written to Molvi Nuruddin and Fazal Ahmad to send his Talaqnama (Divorce Deed) to izzat Bibi in case if you people do not stop this marriage plan. If Fazal Ahmad did not send divorce to Izzat Bibi, he would be deprived of right of my inheritance. He may not be considered one of my legal heirs after me and not to receive even a single penny from my property.

But I hope he would send a conditional divorce that if Ahmad Baig does not stop his plan of marrying Muhammadi Begum to some other person, then the day this Nikah is solemnised, 3 time,s divorce would fall upon Izzat Bibi. It would mean that the moment Muhammadi Begum is married to somebody else, Izzat Bibi would get three times Talaq. (Irrevocable divorce). So this is the conditional divorce and I am under oath not to accept anything less than that. If Fazal Ahmad did not agree to it he would lose the right to my inheritance. Then he would not receive a single grain from my property.

It would be better if you persuade your brother at this moment. I have tried my best to save the marriage of Izzat Bibi, but can not go beyond my limit. I warn you that I am not saying anything raw. I swear by god that I would do like this. God is with me. The day the marriage takes place, the marriage of Izzat Bibi would break.

“Wait for the (fulfillment) of prophecy mentioned in the announcement of 10th July 1888, along with which there is also appended this inspiration: And they ask thee if this is true. Say: Yes, by my Lord, it is true and you cannot prevent it from taking place. We have ourselves wed thee to her. There is none to change my words. And on seeing the sign, they will turn their faces and will say: This is thorough deception, and a thorough magic.” 
April 7th, 1892

Muhammedi Begum was married to Sultan Muhammad (see Dard, page 334).
_____________________________________________________________________________________________July 1892

MGA was dreaming about multiple women, this may have been an indication of the eventual fate of Muhammadi Begum (see the 2009 online edition of Tadhkirah, see pages 256-257).

MGA claims to have a dream wherein he sees Muhammadi Begum (a married woman) naked (See Tadhkirah, page 261, online english edition).

“””August 14, 1892 CE, Muharram 20, 1309 AH. I saw in my dream last night that Muhammadi (Begum), concerning whom a prophecy has been made, was sitting with some people in a village rest-house and perhaps her head was shaven and she was naked and she looked very repulsive. I said to her three times: The interpretation of your head being shaven is that your husband will die. I placed both my hands over her head and again stated the same interpretation during my dream. The same night Mahmud’s mother saw in a dream that my marriage with Muhammadi (Begum) had been performed and my wife had a document in her hand which specified that the dower for the marriage was one thousand rupees. Some sweets were sent for. Then Muhammadi Begum was seen standing near me in [my wife’s] dream. [Register of Miscellaneous Memoranda by from the Promised Messiahas, p. 34].”””
_____________________________________________________________________________________________September 30, 1892

Mirza Ahmad Baig dies (See the 2009 online edition of Tadhkirah, page 188).
_____________________________________________________________________________________________February 1893

Ainah Kamalat-e-Islam is published which contains MGA’s prophecy about Mirza Ahmad Baig and Muhammadi Begum.

Here is a letter of Mirza Gulam Qadiani to Ahmad Baig, the father of girl which is taken from Aina Kamalate Islam which MGAQ wrote in 1887.

In the name of Allah the beneficent and merciful.
Listen to me O my dear.
Why do you consider my serious submissions to be non sensical and do not trust me.? By god I do not want to bother you. You would InshaAllah see how much favour I would extend to you, If you consider my submissions, contrary to the wishes of the relatives, I swear upon god that I will give you a share from my land and garden. This proposal (marriage with Muhammadi Begum), would resolve all the family feuds among us. If you accept my proposal I will be greatly obliged to you. I will pray for your long life before Allah. I promise you that if you marry your daughter to me I will make her the owner of one third of my land and other property. I assure you that I would give you whatever you ask from me. As regard the love and respect, you will never find a person like me so loving, respecting and a helping hand ever in your issues. I will share your burdens. So don,t let the doubts come into your way. I am writing this letter to you under the instructions of god not at my own. This writing is from a truthful and honest, so keep it safe in your box. Whatever I have told you is from Allah not from me. I am writing to you under Ilham. These were the commandments of my God I conveyed to you otherwise I do not need you or your daughter. If truth does not appear after lapse of the deadline, do put a chain in my feet and a rope around my neck and punish me in a manner as no body was punished in this world ever.
(Mirza Ghulam Qadiani,)

Quotes from Aina Kamalat e Islam about Muhammadi Begum

Ai’na-i-Kamalat-i-Islam, pa 286. It has also been reproduced by Qasim Ali Ahmadi in Tabligh-i-Risalat, Vol. 1, pp. I I 1–18.

“”””The Omnipotent and Omniscient God has asked me that I should seek the hand of the elder daughter of this man (Ahmad Beg); should tell him that good conduct and courtesy to be shown to him would depend on this (i.e. his acceptance of the marriage proposal) ; her marriage with me would be a source of blessing and a sign of mercy for her father; and that he would have his share in all those blessings and mercies which have been laid down in the leaflet dated 20 February 1886 but if he declines to marry her, then the girl would meet an extremely tragic end. The other person to whom she would be married would die within two and a half years after the day of wedding,’ and so would die the father of the girl within three years, and her household would be afflicted with discord and poverty and adversity, and during the intervening period the girl would encounter several events of unpleasant and grievous nature.””””[3]

A’ina-e-Kamalat-e-Islam, page-376, Ruhani Khaza’in, vol. 5, page 376

MGA claims that the Muhammadi Begum prophecy is a sign for Muslims, just as the Abdullah Athim prophecy is a sign for Christians and just like the Lekh Ram prophecy is for Hindus.

A’ina-i-Kamalat-i-Islam, p. 572

””Tell him to establish a relationship with you by giving his elder daughter in marriage to you and thus to obtain light from your light. Tell him that you would agree to the transfer of the land as he has requested and show him other favors in the event of this marriage taking place. Tell him that this would be a covenant between you and that if he accepts it he will find you the best acceptor on your side and that if he does not accept it and his daughter is married to someone else that marriage would not prove a blessing either for his daughter or for himself. Tell him that if he persists in carrying out any different design he will become subject to a series of misfortunes, the last of which would be his death within three years of the marriage of his daughter to someone else. Warn him that his death is near and will occur at a time when he does not expect it. The husband of his daughter will also die within two years and a half. This is a divine decree.”””

RK vol.5 p.573-574
Mirza sahib again wrote a letter to Ahmad Beg. Here he offered him a plot and a garden. He even said that he will transfer one third of his property to Muhammadi Begum. In this letter he even said, “I will give you (to father of Muhammadi Begum) anything you ask for.”

A’ina-e-Kamalat-e-Islam, Ruhani Khaza’in, vol. 5, page 576

In this revelation, MGA’s god is clearly saying that he will kill the husband of Muhammadi Begum. Ahmadi’s purposely mis-translated kill as destroy (See the explanation by Hassan Odeh).

(Arabic), ‘We shall kill her husband (also), just like we killed her father and return her to you. This is the truth from your lord. Then be not those who doubt. We shall delay it only for a fixed period. Say: Wait till the end of the term and I am with you among those that wait. When the promise of God is fulfilled {it will be said}: Is this what you called false or were you blind?””



The exact same translation was done in the 2004 edition of Tadhkirah, and the 1976 english edition (see page 138).  

The reference from the 1967 edition of Tadhkirah, URDU


July Via Tufha Tun Baghdad
online english edition

“”Whatever befalls you is from Allah and know that the end is for the righteous. Warn your near relatives. We shall show them a Sign from among our Signs in the matter of the widow and shall return her to you. This has been settled from Our side and We shall certainly do it. They used to reject Our Signs as false and were of the scoffers. Good tidings to you on the marriage. The truth is from your Lord, then be not of the doubters. We have married her to you. No one can avert the words of Allah. We shall return her to you. Your Lord is All-Powerful and does whatever He determines. This is grace from Us so that it should be a Sign for the beholders. Two goats will be slaughtered and everyone upon the earth will ultimately perish.”””
The winter of 1893

MGA and his team of writers mentions the death of Mirza Ahmad Baig as a sign of MGA’s truth. See “Shahada-tul Quran”, in english as “Testimony of the Quran”, see here a link to the english translation by the Lahori-Ahmadi’s.

“””(1) Mirza Ahmad Baig of Hoshiarpur should die within the limit of three years; (2) then his son-in-law, the husband of his elder daughter, should die within two and a half years; (3) Mirza Ahmad Baig should not die before the day of his daughter’s wedding; (4) the daughter too must not die before she is married, and then widowed, and then married a second time; (5) my humble self too should not die till all these events take place; (6) and then she should be married to myself. Obviously these events are not in human control. [Note 6]”””””

Muhammadi Begum got married in April of 1892 and her father died in September of 1892.  In February of 1893, Ainah Kamalate Islam is published by MGA, Muhammadi Begum is heavily mentioned.

1893 in a book called Hujjatullah
We found this interesting quote from the ahmadi.answers website, however, we haven’t found it in the new english online version of the book.  

“And when Ahmad Baig died the back of his widowed wife and remaining relatives was broken as it were. They became focussed on prayer and supplication. As we have heard that the mother of Ahmad Baig’s son in law has still not come to terms with this shock.” (Hujjatullah, Page 11)


Via the Ishaat us Sunnah magazine, Mirza Sultan Muhammad (the husband of Muhammadi Begum) called MGA a liar and a Kafir.

In 1894, the husband of Muhammadi Begum said

Brief translation and commentary
Its a scan page of “ishat us sunnah” which was lead by Mollana Muhammad Hessian Batalvi. We know Mirza Ghulam has prophesied about death of husband of Muhammadi Begam. It should be done after two and half years from their nikkah in September 1894. But Mirza Ghulam usually fails this prophesy. Then Mirza Ghulam Ahmed responded to people who called him liar by his well known excuse that husband of Muhammadi Begam was frightened from death of Begam’s father so he didn’t die and he repented, later he asked people for an denial of Begam’s husband to his claim if he is lying….Mollana Batalvi write a letter to his one friend Munshi Muhammad Saeed who was living in Rawalpindi and asked him to meet with Begam’s husband to know whether its true that he repented or not?

He met with Sultan Muhammad and asked him about this matter, third question which published in “Ishat us sunnah #6 vol 16 page 196″ (at the end of 1894)was:
What was effect of revelation of Mirza Ghulam on you? Whether you frightened or not?

His answer is:

I used to and still concern Mirza sahib a liar and prevaricator. I am a Muslim and I am very thankful to Allah.”

_____________________________________________________________________________________________ 1894
(Public Announcement dated 6 September 1894; Majmu`a Ishtiharat, 1986 edition, vol. 2, pages 42-43)

In September 1894, when the period of two and a half years expired within which whoever married Muhammadi Begum was to have died according to the prophecy, Hazrat Mirza sahib wrote in a published announcement:

“”””See all this evidence [i.e. their repentance] I became sure that the date of death of Sultan Muhammad could not be maintained because such dates, which are among the type of signs which convey fear and warning, are always an avertable fate. Sultan Muhammad and his relatives were guilty of committing the sin that, although I let them know very clearly through other persons and through letters that this prophecy was from God the Most High for a rebellious people, and they should not take their side and needlessly become deservant of punishment, but because they also were hardhearted and materialistic they did not accept this, and they mocked and ridiculed and through their audacity they did not turn away from entering into the marriage. … But the death of Ahmad Beg broke their backs, and this was why they sent me letters of apology and regret. As they were struck by fear and terror in their hearts, it was essential that God the Most High, according to His ancient way, pospone the date of punishment to some later time, that is, to the time when those people again turn back fully to their state of audacity, arrogance and neglect, because the date of punishment is an avertable fate which is moved to another time if fear and turning to God is displayed, as is proved by the whole of the Quran.”””””


“”””But the essence of the prophecy, that this woman will enter into marriage with me, is an absolute fate which cannot at all be averted … So after these days, when God the Most High sees thatthese people’s hearts have hardened, and they have not valued the few days of respite and relaxation given to them, then He will turn to the fulfilment of the prophecy of His holy word.””””” (ibid.,page 43)
Anjam-e-Athim, pp. 29 and 32).

“””I have in earlier announcements mentioned some of the letters which reached me from these people [relatives of Muhammadi Begum], expressing repentance, fear and turning to truth. If this principle is not true according to the Quran and the Bible that the period specified in a prophecy of threatened punishment can be delayed, then the objection of every critic is right and justified. But if from the Quran and the Bible it is repeatedly proved that the time of punishment can be postponed if repentance and fear is shown then it is the height of dishonesty for anyone calling himself a Muslim or a Christian to object to this which is proved from the Holy Quran and earlier scriptures….


The matter can be easily decided. Persuade Sultan Muhammad to publish an announcement charging me with falsehood. Then if he should survive whatever term is appointed by God the Most High, I may be condemned as a liar. … It is essential that the threatened death be withheld from him until that time comes which makes him bold and audacious. If you want to make it come quickly, then go and embolden him and make him a denier and bring an announcement from him, and then see the spectacle of Divine power.”””
______________________________________________________________________________________________Anjam-e-Atham p.31. Roohani Khazain vol.11 p.31, footnote

“I say again and again that the essence of the prophecy, the death of the son-in-law of Ahmad Beg (i.e. Sultan Muhammad) is assuredly pre-destined, wait for it. IF I AM A LIAR, THIS PROPHECY WILL NOT BE FULFILLED AND MY DEATH WILL COME. If I am truthful then God will fulfill it just as he fulfilled the prophecies regarding Ahmad Baig and Atham .”

“””””Be it known that Ahmad Baig’s wife and her family were related to me but would not follow my way in matters of faith. On the contrary, they were very daring in committing sins and indulging in all types of innovations. They had exceeded the limits in this respect. It was conveyed to me by the Most Gracious One by revelation that He would chastise them if they did not repent. My Lord said to me that:

[Arabic] If they do not repent and do not turn back from their misconduct, We shall pour upon them chastisement from heaven and shall give them death with humiliation without leaving any offspring behind; and We shall fill their homes with widows and divorcees. But if they repent and reform, We shall turn to them with mercy and shall give up the design of their punishment. Thus, they will experience whatever they choose on their own accord. [Publishers]. 

To complete the admonition I counselled them and said: ‘Seek forgiveness from the Lord Who forgives;’ but they paid no heed to my words and advanced further in their hostility towards me. Then it occurred to me that I should make a public announcement about it so that they might take to the ways of righteousness and return to the path of goodness and be among those who ask forgiveness of God the Almighty.

Therefore, I made the announcement while I was in Hoshiarpur, but they irresponsibly cast it behind their backs.””””

“”””(A) When they did not change their ways, even after this announcement, and did not give up the path that leads to ruin, Allah disclosed to me certain matters about this family while I was between sleep and waking. This vision recounted some details of the revelation I had received concerning them and it happened in this wise. When I was about to go to sleep, Ahmad Baig’s mother-in-law was personified before me and her condition caused me distress and I trembled. In the meeting, she appeared to me to be in great distress and I saw [in the vision] that her eyes were shedding tears. I said to her:

[Arabic] O Woman, repent, repent for misfortune is about to befall your progeny.
That is, your daughter and maternal granddaughter will be involved in distress.

Then I came out of this condition and My Lord granted me the understanding that the vision I had seen was an interpretation granted by Allah the All-Knowing of the revelation I had previously received. I was given the understanding by God, the Requiter, that the word ‘aqibi means her daughter and her maternal granddaughter and not anyone else from among her children. It was conveyed to me that misfortune meant two afflictions, one upon her daughter and the other upon her maternal granddaughter. By the command of Allah Ahkamul-Hakimin [the Arbiter above all arbiters] the two would resemble each other.””””

“The actual purport was destruction, and my marriage to the girl would follow their death, and that was only to highlight the greatness of this sign in the eyes of the people”
Anjam-e-Atham, Ruhani Khazain, Vol. 11, p. 223

Translation from Arabic/Persian
“I am not just telling you that this affair (marriage of Mohammadi Begum) has ended here and whatever has happened is the culmination and the reality of the prophecy has ended here. Rather the main affair is still pending, none can cancel it with any excuse and this fate is predestined (taqdeer-e-mubrim) from God AlMighty. Soon its time will come. By God, who sent Hazrat Muhammad Rasoolullah and made Him Best of Messengers and Best of Persons, this is absolutely true. You will see soon and I declare this prophecy as a yardstick of my truth or lies and what I have said, I have said it after getting news from God.” 



In Anjam-e-Athim, MGA mentions his prophecy vs. his cousins and other close relations.

Zamima Anjam e Atham, RK v. 12, p.337

MGA says that the prophet Muhammad SAW foretold the marriage of Isa ibn Maryam AS when he descends and this refers to MGA’s marriage with Muhammadi Begum and the promised son that will be born from the marriage.


(See wiki Qern), Anjam-e-Athim, Appendix, Ruhani Khazain, Vol. 11, p.338

“”””Remember that the second part of this prophecy (about Muhammadi Begum‘s husband) is not fulfilled then I will stand as the worst of the worst. O stupid people, it is not the fabrication of man, not the business of an evil forger. Surely know that this is the true promise of God – the same God whose words cannot be circumvented – the same Lord of Glory whose intent no one can stop. You have lost the knowledge of His ways and methods, and that is why you faced this tribulation. In Braheen-e-Ahmadiyya 17 years ago, there was an indication of this prophecy and it is the revelation on page 496 of the book: ‘O Adam abide you and your spouse in the garden; O Maryam abide you and yourspouse in the garden; O Ahmad abide you and your spouse in the garden.’ The word spouse is mentioned three times and I was named in three ways: the first name was Adam when Allah the Exalted gave me a spiritual form with His own hand, and the first wife was mentioned at that time. Then he named me Maryam at the time of the second wife as I was given blessed children at the time who resembled the Messiah and, also, I had to face many tribulations at the time just as Mary was put into trial with the bad assumptions of the Jews at the time of the birth of Eesa(as). And now the third wife is awaited and the word ‘Ahmad’ has been associated with it and this word is an indication that there will be praise and adulation in this time. This is a hidden prediction whose secret God has opened upon me now. Thus this mention of ‘spouse’ with three different names points to this prophecy.”””

“Prophecy of Slaughter of two Goats it is signal towards Ahmad beg and his son in law which was published 17 years ago in barheeen ahmadiyya”

“After this it will happen that Two GOATS will be Slaughtered first goat means Ahmad beg and second goat means his son in law”

“””About eighteen years ago, I had an opportunity to visit Maulavi Muhammad Husain Batalavi, Editor of Isha‘atus- Sunnah at his house. He asked me whether I had received any revelation lately and I mentioned to him the revelation, which I had already mentioned several times to my friends:

[Arabic] A virgin and a widow.

I interpreted this to him and to all others to mean that: God has intended to bring two women to me in marriage—the first time a virgin and the second time a widow. The first part of the revelation, relating to a virgin, has been fulfilled By Allah’s grace, I have four sons from that wife. I await fulfilment of the part about the widow. “””[Tiryaqul-Qulub, p. 34, Ruhani Khaza’in, vol. 15, p. 201](See Also, the 2009 online edition of Tadhkirah, pages 50-51).
Al-Hakam Qadian, August 10, 1901

“It is true that that woman has not been  married to me But she will certainly be married to me as has been stated in the prophecy. She has been married to Sultan Muhammad, I say truly that in this court (i.e. the world) where people have laughed at things which were not from me but from God, a time will come when the events will take a strange turn and the heads of all will be downcast with remorse. The woman in still alive. She will inevitably come to my wedlock. I expect this to happen, rather, I have full faith in this. These are divinely ordained matters and are bound to occur.”
Via Maulvi Sanaullah and “Tahrik-e-Mirza”

In 1884, Mirza Ghulam Ahmad claimed that the Quran 61:09, 48:28 and 9:32 was also revealed to him

MGA mentions the faliure of the Muhammadi Begum prophecy but claims that he will marry her as widow.

“The prophecy regarding the daughter of Ahmad Baig, which is mentioned in the announcement, is a well known matter. She is the niece of Mirza Imamuddin. The letter to Mirza Ahmad Baig quoted in Kalima Fazl-e-Rehmani is mine and it is true that that woman has not been married to me, but she will definitely be married to me; as mentioned in prophecy. She got married to Sultan Mohammad as mentioned in the prophecy. I am telling you the truth in this court, where I have been ridiculed about things which are not from me but from God. A time is coming when all heads will hang in shame. It is clearly understood from the words of the prophecy and this was the prediction: that she will be married to somebody else. The prediction of the death of this girl’s father and the death of her husband was conditional and the condition was repentance and turning back to Allah. The girl’s father failed to repent therefore died within a few months of the marriage. The second part of the prediction was fulfilled, the fear of its fulfilment gripped her
family and especially her husband, who was a part of the prophecy. They repented. Her relatives and loved ones sent letters, so God Almighty gave him respite. The woman is still alive, she will assuredly come into my wedlock. What hope! I have firm belief. These are things of God, they cannot be annulled, it is bound to happen.”

Ahmadiyya newspapers report on 18 August 1902: Mirza Ahsan Baig formally requested to be part of the Ahmadiyya Jamaat. He was the grandson of Mirza Ahmad Baig, son-in-law of Mirza Ahmad Baig and brother-in-law of Muhammadi Begum. He was married to one of the younger sisters of Muhammadi Begum.
_____________________________________________________________________________________________November of 1902

In MGA’s book, “Ijazi i Ahmadi” or “The Miracle of Ahmad”, the 2019 online english edition, page 16:

“””What is more, when they speak of the son-in-law of Ahmad Baig, they never tell the people that a part of the prophecy has already been fulfilled within the stipulated period; i.e. Ahmad
Baig died within the given time-frame and that the second part of the prophecy awaits fulfilment. They also withhold the fact that it was a prophecy of wa‘id [warning] and was subject to certain conditions as is evident from the revelation:

توبی توبی فإن البلاء علٰی عقبك

Repent, repent for misfortune is about to befall your progeny.

Which had been published a number of times. It was obviously natural to be overcome by fear after witnessing a death like that of Ahmad Baig, and it was this fear that caused the deferment of the fulfilment of the second part of the prophecy. For indeed such is divine practice regarding the prophecies of wa‘id. However, the malicious opponents of mine never mention these facts; instead, like the Jews they distort facts and make speeches that create doubts in the hearts of ignorant people.””””

Imam Bibi dies in roughly 1902. MGA discusses this story in Nuzul ul Masih. Thus, the land of Mirza Ghulam Haidar reverted back to his cousins. MGA then bought out his other cousins and got all of the land and buildings, which seem to be right next door to MGA’s mansion.

Nuzulul-Masih, pp. 213–214, Ruhani Khaza’in, vol. 18, pp. 591–592(via the 2009 online english edition of Tadhkirah).

“””On one occasion I was travelling by train in the direction of Ludhiana when I received the revelation:

[Persian] Half to you and half to your collaterals.

I was given to understand that Imam Bibi—who was the widow of one of our collaterals—would die and half her land would revert to us and the remaining half would revert to our collaterals.
I communicated this revelation to those of my friends who were with me at that time. And so it happened that the woman died and her land was divided half and half between our collaterals and us.”””

June 3rd, 1905–Al-Hakam, page-2

MGA was claiming that Muhammadi Begum would still eventually come into his Nikkah, see the video by Amir Haq herein, at the 16:56 mark.


In “Haqiqatul Wahy”, MGA mentions Mirza Ahmad Baig on pages, 219-220, 231, 233, 237, 238, 280, 492, 493, 576, 577, 696, 697, 710, 714, 715. MGA basically says that even though Muhammadi Begum was still alive and married with children, the prophecy was conditional and thus fulfilled.

“… The fear of Ahmad Baig’s death overcame them, which resulted in him nullifying one part of the prophecy.” (Badr, 23 April 1908, p.4).
June-July 1908, Nooruddin comments on the failed prophecy of Muhammadi Begum
Review of Religions, Vol. VII, no. 726, June and July, 1908, p. 279 (cited from Qadiani Mazhab).

“””Now, I would like to remind all the Muslims who have had and still have faith in the Noble Qur’an that since those addressed in it include also their offsprings, successors and those like them, then, can this prophecy not include the daughter, of Ahmad Beg, or the daughter of that daughter? Does your law of inheritance not apply the regulations regarding daughters to their daughters? And are the offsprings of the Mirza not his agnates? I had often told dear Mian Mahmood (Mian Bashiruddin Mahmood, a son of the Mirza and the second head of the Qadiani movement after Hakim Nuruddin) that even if the Mirza were to die and this girl did not enter into his wedlock, my adoration of him would remain unshaken.””””

Dear brother,

Your letter was to hand. Thanks for the remembrance. As for the late Hazrat Mirza sahib marhum, I have always considered him to be, and still consider him to be, a good and righteous man, a servant of Islam, noble-hearted and one who remembers God. With his followers I have no antagonism whatever. Rather, I am very sorry that, due to certain reasons, I could not have the honour of seeing him during his life.

Sultan Muhammad
Al-Fazl, 9 June 1921

“My father-in-law, Mirza Ahmad Beg, in fact died precisely in accordance with the prophecy. But God the Most High is also the most merciful. He listens to other men also, and showers His mercy on them. … I state upon my conscience that the prophecy relating to the marriage has not left any doubt whatsoever in my mind. As for the bai`at [i.e. taking the Pledge to join the Movement], I declare upon solemn oath that the trust and faith which I repose in Hazrat Mirza sahib is, I think, not possessed even by you who have entered the bai`at. Of what is in my mind you can form an idea from the fact that at the time of the prophecy, the Aryas because of Lekh Ram and the Christians because of Atham each offered me one hundred thousand rupees if only I should file a suit against Mirza sahib. I could have certainly become a wealthy man if I had accepted their money. But it was again the same faith and trust in Hazrat Mirza sahib that deterred me from doing so.”
Mirza Ishaq Beg, Al Fazl 26 February 1923

“”My grandfather, Mirza Ahmad Beg died as a result of the prophecy and the rest of the family became frightened and hence reformed themselves. An undeniable proof of this is that most of them joined Ahmadiyya.””
Seeratul Mahdi

Seera-tul-Mahdi vol. 1 Narration 127.

For a property issue they (the family of Muhammadi Begum) needed signatures of Mirza sahib. Ahmad Beg (father of Muhammadi Begum) visited Mirza sahib (Feb 1888) and requested him to sign some papers. Mirza sahib was ready to sign the papers but somehow he stopped and said, “Let me do Istikhara” first.

The ROR of July-1924 tells us that MGA’s wife was supporting MGA’s quest to get a second wife, i.e. Muhammadi Begum.


Mirza Sultan Muhammad was tracked down and he clarified in the below

The weekly Ahl-i-hadith newspaper of 1924 tells us
Weekly Ahl e Hadis Amritsar in its publication of 24th March, 1924 brought an interesting report in this regard. Urdu version of which may be seen in screen shot of weekly. English translation is as under:-

“”“Mirza Sahib Qadiani’s each prophesy proved to be a decisive one for him. Because he always prophesied for a decision from Allah. So his prophesy regarding his heavenly wed bride was clear in its meaning but the man to whom the lady was married, was Mirza Sultan Muhammad of Patti, District Lahore. It was all important that Mirza Sahib Qadiani pays attention to him because he was the main irritant in the acquisition of his prophesied bride. Therefore, a stern time line of the death of Mirza Sultan Muhammad was prophesied which was to expire in August 1894. But when he did not die in the given time line, Mirza Qadiani starts saying that my prophesy scared Mirza Sultan which earned him extension in life. Finally Mirza Sahib Qadiani wrote that he would be a liar, if Mirza Sultan did not die in my life time. Facts are that Mirza Sahib Qadiani died in 1908, but Mirza Sultan is still alive. During a debate at Sikandarabad, Qadiani Muballigh Abdur Rehman Desi Misri stated that Mirza Sultan had written a letter to Mirza Sahib Qadiani assuring him that he (Mirza Sultan) considers him a saintly person. Although this writing do not affect the prophesy in any manner, yet Mirza Sultan was asked of this, he verbally replied he has never been a believer of Mirza sb Qadiani. On request he wrote the following text:- When Mirza Qadiani announced my death prophesy I never thought it to be true nor I was scared of it. I have always been and am a follower of my elders of Islam to this day.”””

Molana Muhammad Hussain Batalvi has also confirmed from Mirza Sultan Muhammad thru one of his relative whether he has given Qadianis any such writing in their favour, he denied it


She is mentioned in the ROR of Dec-1939.


Muhammadi Begum, her husband, family and extended family move to Lahore by force.

Mirza Sultan Muhammad dies.

Muhammadi Begum died on 19 November, 1966, at Lahore, her funeral prayer was led by Molana Shahabuddin of Chowburji who was a disciple of Shaikhul Hind Molana Mahmoodul Hasan. She was buried in Qabrustan Miyani Sahib Lahore.

Her grave was recently found by Khalid Mateen and his team of workers. Muhammadi Begum and her children are descendants of the wider Mirza family from Qadian, by 2023, not a single grandchild of hers is a Qadiani-Ahmadi. Her mother was Umar un-Nisa (the sister of Mirza Imam ud Din). Nevertheless, the KTV and the famous scholar Khalid Mateen recently held a program on KTV wherein they showed the grave of Muhammadi Begum and her husband and a few of her children. Thus proving that MGA failed in all of his aspirations to marry her and etc.

This problem relates to the family life of Mirza Ghulam and normally such problems should be of little interest to a historian. But the family lives of such people who proclaim a divinely-ordained status, no longer remains a private matter, for there are lessons to be learnt. There are millions of people who strive for the hands of ladies of their choice. Some succeed and some don’t. If unsuccessful, they move on. But this claimant of prophethood, made it an issue out of it. He propagated this Divine Marriage as a sign of the truthfulness of his claims to prophethood. He even boasted: This should be clear to people that there can be no better criterion of testing our truth or falsehood than our prophecy. He failed miserably but he could not accept the marriage of this poor girl to someone else. This so-called claimant of prophethood over the years kept pursuing her with his repeated prophecies of her ultimate marriage with him before his death. But Alas! He passed away from this world with this desire unfulfilled.
Mirza Ghulam married only two ladies during his lifetime. First at the age of 12 – 14 years with his maternal uncle’s daughter. Sultan Ahmad and Fazal Ahmad were born out of this wedlock. Second marriage was done at around 50 years of age in Delhi with Nusrat Jehan Begum who sons were Mahmud Ahmad (the 2nd Khalifa), Basheer Ahmad (the author of Seerat-ul-Mahdi) and Mubarak Ahmad.

For several years after the second marriage, Mirza kept having floods of inspirations and dreams informing him of further marriages. But since Allah AlMighty wanted to show to the world that the Messiah of Qadian was devoid of Eternal Blessing of Divine Gnosis and Communion with Allah and that his source of inspirations and dreams were not Rehmani but shaitani in origin, therefore all such inspirations and dreams proved false. After the 2nd marriage with Nusrat Jehan Begum, no other woman could enter into his wedlock. However it is worth reading an account of his attempts to get married 3rd time because it sheds light on the character of this man but more so because he had made this 3rd marriage a sign of his truthfulness.

Now just read ahead the grandiose prophecies of Mirza Ghulam.

The Prophecy regarding marriage with two ladies – A Virgin and A Widow

According to Mirza Ghulam, before the 2nd marriage he had received an inspiration regarding two marriages: A virgin and a widow. Thus he wrote:

“Ask Shaikh Mohammad Hussein Batalvi under oath that is this not true that before this marriage which took place in Delhi, once I was present in his house. He asked me to relate some inspiration, I related to him a fresh inspiration which I had received in those days and proving this marriage and its second part. And it was this: ‘Bikrun wa Thayabun’ which means that it is destined that one marriage will be with a virgin and then after that with a widow. I remember this inspiration and I hope not that Mohammad Hussein has forgotten it. I remember his house where sitting on the chair I described this inspiration and there was no trace of Ahmad Baig’s (daughter’s) story in those days and there was no mention of this second marriage either. Thus if he thinks then he should know that this was a sign of God, whose one part he had seen (marriage with Nusrat Jehan Begum) and the second part concerning the widow, he will see it some other time.” (Zamima Anjam-e-Atham P.14, Roohani Khazain Vol. 11 P. 298)

Mirza got married to Nusrat Jehan Begum, a virgin,  in 1884. First part of the inspiration was fulfilled, now only the second part of marriage with a widow remained. But two years later, on 20th February 1886, Mirza Ghulam got an inspiration informing him that several ladies would be coming into his wedlock. He wrote:

“Then God the Merciful gave me the gladtiding, saying: Your house will be filled with Barakah and I will complete my bounties on you and from the Blessed ladies, who will come to you after this (Nusrat), your family will grow greatly.” (Tabligh-e-Risalat vol.1 p.60, Collection of Advertisement vol.1 p.102)

But after this inspiration, neither Mirza Ghulam got married again nor could he get hold of any blessed or un-blessed ladies. Had he somehow got married to Mohammadi Begum, probably he would have twisted and turned this inspiration to fulfill it, but the honorable Allah did not want to turn a fabrication into a fact. When Mirza published his inspiration regarding several ladies coming to him, someone by the name of Munshi Mohammad Ramzan ridiculed this inspiration in a local newspaper, Punjabi Akhbaar, dated 20th March 1886. Mirza Ghulam wrote:

“In the advertisement of 20th February 1886, this inspiration was published from God that He had given me the gladtiding that ‘Several blessed women will come into your wedlock after this advertisement and they will bear children’. Regarding this inspiration Munshi Mohammad Ramzan Sahib says: Inspirations are of several kinds, for good people, good ones, and to adulterers, about women.” (Tabligh-e-Risalat vol.1 p.90)

On 8th June 1886, Mirza wrote to Hakeem Nuruddin:

“The favours of God that are upon this humble-one, I always want to relate some of them to my friends. Thus to you as well, who are among the sincere friend, I want to describe this prophecy of one day. Probably 4 months ago, it was revealed to this humble-one that ‘A son, strong with two powers, perfect in outer aspect and inside, will be given to you, his name will be Emanuil and Basheer’. Until this moment I had thought that this son would be born to this wife (Nusrat). But now frequent inspirations are indicating that ‘soon you would have to marry again and it has been decided by Allah that a pious-natured and good-mannered lady would be given to you and will bear children.’  The surprising thing in this is that when I had this inspiration, then in the dream state 4 fruits were given to me, three of them were mangoes but one was very big green coloured, it did not resemble the fruits of this world. I think that that fruit which did not resemble the fruits of this world, is the same blessed son, because the meaning of fruits is sons. And when the gladtiding was given regarding this pious-natured wife and along with it four fruits were given in dream, in which one fruit was different, then its meaning is obvious. Now my opponents, who are blind, objects that why a son was not born this time. In my opinion before the birth of this son, it seems necessary that this 3rd marriage should take place, because in this 3rd marriage, there are indications of sons being born. Probably the time for this 3rd is near. Let us see where God intends this thing to take place. Numerous inspirations have been received in this regards and God’s intention seems somewhat forceful.” (Maktoobat-e-Ahmadiyya Vol.5 P.5-6)

On 20th June 1886, Mirza wrote to Hakeem Nuruddin:

“What this humble wrote to you, it was in friendly way to inform you about the secrets of inspirations, because it is the habit of this humble-one that to increase to power of faith of friends, some hidden things are told. And the real condition of this humble-one is that ever since I had received this divine indication about the 3rd marriage, I am worried and i cannot refrain from the Will of God… Initially I had tried to get cancelled this divine order, but repeated inspirations and dreams are proving that this is the Destiny (Qadhaa-e-Mubrim).” (Maktoobaat-e-Ahmadiyya vol.5 No.2 P.8)

It should be noted that destiny is of two types: Qadhaa-e-Mu’aliq (Hanging Destiny) and Qadhaa-e-Mubrim (Inevitable Destiny). Mu’aliq is something which can be altered by prayers, medicines, alms. Mubrim is something which is fixed and inevitable and will never be postponed. Thus the 3rd Marriage of Mirza was an Inevitable Destiny which could not be postponed under any circumstances. But despite admitting to the effect, Mirza did not marry 3rd time and that Inevitably Destined Marriage for which inspirations had been raining on him for a long time, never materialized, proving him to be a liar in his claims.

Now let us see how desperately Mirza Ghulam tried to fulfill these inspirations regarding 3rd marriage.

3rd Marriage 1888 to 1892

In 1888, Mirza Ahmad Baig, father of Mohammadi Begum, came to Mirza Ghulam seeking his help in the settlement of a piece of land. Mirza Ahmad Baig was a close relative:

  • He was the husband of his cousin (paternal uncle’s daughter – Umerun Nisa)
  • He was the brother of his brother in law. Mirza’s sister was married to the brother of Ahmad Baig.
  • He was the maternal uncle of Izzat Bibi, wife of his son, Fazal Ahmad.
  • His wife was the sister of Mirza’s brother, Ghulam Qadir.
  • He was the brother in law of his another maternal cousin, Mirza Ali Sher Baig. Ali Sher was the brother of Mirza Ghulam’s first wife, whom Mirza had left without even divorcing her.
  • His sister was married to Mirza’s another paternal cousin, Ghulam Hussein.
  • Mother of Mohammadi Begum, Umerun Nisa, was the daughter of Mirza Ghulam’s paternal uncle, Ghulam Mohiuddin. Thus she was the niece of Mirza Ghulam (and therefore had been having an eye on her for a long time)

The above account shows in detail the relationship between Mirza Ghulam’s and Mohammadi Begum’s family. Mohammadi Begum was the niece of paternal cousins of Mirza Ghulam, used to stay with her mother mostly in Qadian where their house was adjacent to Mirza’s house. Some books mention that she used to be very beautiful, staying adjacent to Mirza’s house, he had lot of opportunities to see her. That may be one reason for his desire to marry. However there was no way of getting her parents to agree to give her hand in his. After all who would marry their teenage daughter to an old man who already has two wives with a lot of children. Besides they were Sunni Muslims and as such opposed his religious claims. But the beauty of Mohammadi Begum was over powering and may be the motivating factor behind these so-called divine inspirations.

When her father came seeking help of Mirza to solve the problem of some disputed land, Mirza, who had been having an eye on his daughter, Mohammadi Begum, saw his chance. He agreed to help him but asked for her hand in marriage in return, although she was half his age.  He therefore wrapped it in the form of a Divinely Inspired Act. The letter of Mirza Ghulam which was published in the 10th May 1888 edition of Nur Afshan Newspaper and later in his advertisement of July 1888 gives a detailed account of this story.

“The uncle of Mohammadi Begum who consider me liar and cunning in my claims, had been seeking a heavenly sign from me. Therefore several times prayers were made for them. thus that prayer was acknowledged and God made this arrangement that the father of this lady (Ahmad Baig) came to beg me for a necessary task. Its details are this that the one sister of Ahmad Baig was married to one of my cousin, Ghulam Hussein. Ghulam Hussein vanished some 25 years ago and there was no news about him. His land, whose ownership rights are mine, was endorsed in government papers in the name of sister of (Ahmad Baig) (who was the wife of Ghulam Hussein). Presently this man (Ahmad Baig), with the permission of his sister, wanted that that land, whose value is Rs 4000 – 5000, get transferred to his son, Mohammad Baig, as a gift. Therefore the gift deed was written by his sister and since this deed without my permission was useless, then this man (Ahmad Baig) came to us with great humility, so that we may sign it. Just when I was about to sign, … I thought of doing a Istikharah ( a way to find Allah’s willingness in any act). Then after repeated request from this man, Istikharah was done. That istikharah turned out to be the time of showing the Heavenly Sign, which God showed in this manner.” (Roohani Khazain Vol. 5 P.285-286; Collection of Advertisements vol.1 p.156-157)

In the advertisement of 10th July 1888, he wrote further:

“The Omnipotent and Omniscient God has asked me that I should seek the hand of the elder daughter of this man (Ahmad Baig); should tell him that good conduct and courtesy to be shown to him would depend on this; her marriage with me would be a source of blessing and a sign of mercy for her father; and that he would have his share in all those blessings and mercies which have been laid down in the leaflet dated February 20, 1886 (about the promised son), but if he declines to marry her, then the girl would meet an extremely tragic end. The other person to whom she would be married would die within two and a half years after the day of wedding, and so would die the father of the girl within three years, and her household would be afflicted with discord and poverty and adversity, and during the intervening period the girl would encounter several events of unpleasant and grievous nature.” (Roohani Khazain Vol. 5 P.285-286; Collection of Advertisements vol.1 p.156-157)

In his another book, he said regarding this prophecy:

“By way of prophecy the Exalted God revealed it to this humble one that ultimately the elder daughter of Mirza Ahmad Baig, son of Mirza Gaman Baig Hoshiarpuri, would be married to me. These people would resort to great hostility and would place obstacles in the way, but in the end, it surely would take place. The Exalted God would, by all possible means, bring her to me, whether as a virgin or a widow, and would remove all impediments, and would of necessity, fulfill this task and none would be able to prevent it.” (Izala-e-Auham, Roohani Khazain vol.3 p.305)

Heavenly Sign: The Divine Reason for this Marriage
The reason that Mirza Ghulam tells us for this divine marriage was the following:

“These people considered me LIAR and CUNNING in my claims of inspirations and used to make various kinds of objections on (Mirza’s) Islam and (Mirza’s interpretation of) Holy Quran and asked me for a Heavenly Sign. For this reason several times prayers were conducted for them. Thus that prayer was granted and to show the sign God created this opportunity that the father of this girl came to me for a necessary task……. (and Mirza grabbed the opportunity)” (Aina-e-Kamalaat-e-Islam, Roohani Khazain vol.5 p.285)

Divine Marriage – A Test of Mirza’s Truth and Lies
Thus after publicising this prophecy, he declared:

“This should be clear to people that there can be no better criterion of testing our truth or lies than our prophecy.” (Roohani Khazain Vol. 5 P.285-286; Collection of Advertisements vol.1 p.156-157)

The prophecy however did not materialised. One might think that there might be a misunderstanding on the part of Mirza to interpret the Divine Inspirations. But there was no question of such a possibility. Mirza Ghulam was so full of confidence, so full of arrogance, and challenging the opponent with such dire consequences on the strength of his inspirations that any presumed mistake was out of question. In his own words:

“The prophecies which are presented before the opponents for the purpose of vindicating some claim, contain a peculiar kind of light and guidance, since the inspired ones who, by concentrating their attention on God, generally succeed in having a clear concept of their meanings and nature.” (Izala-e-Auham p. 202, Roohani Khazain vol.3 p.  )

Mirza not only made this prophecy a yard stick of his truth and lies but also a criterion of victory or defeat of Islam:

“Then when I repeatedly meditated in order to seek clarification and elaboration of the prophecy, it was made known to me that God has decreed that the elder daughter of the addressee (Ahmad Baig) will ultimately be married to this humble one (after all impediments have been removed) and this event will make irreligious people Muslims, and provide guidance to the misguided.” (Roohani Khazain Vol. 5 P. 285-286; Collection of Advertisements vol.1 p.156-157)

The exact inspiration that was revealed in Arabic on this occasion was this:

“They have rejected Our signs and they were ridiculing them from before. So God will be your helper in dealing with those who are obstructing this task and ultimately We will bring this girl back to you. There is none who can put off the words of God. Your God is that Omnipotent, whatever He Wills that happens. You are with me and I am with you; and you shall shortly reach the stage whereat you shall be praised. This means that even though the stupid and ignorant people indulge in vilification and utter unbecoming words for you, out of their inner corruption and invidious understanding, but they will ultimately feel ashamed after they have witnessed the succour of God and as a result of the manifestation of the truth, there will be praised for you all round.” (Roohani Khazain Vol. 5 P.285-286; Collection of Advertisements vol.1 p.156-157)

Father of Mohammadi Begum rightly felt offended with such publicity about his daughter, which in Indian culture is considered to be extremely shameful. His only fault was that he went to Mirza Ghulam seeking a favour. And this so-called prophet/messiah behaved in a manner which even an ordinary man would be ashamed to act. He did not consider his relationship, his age nor even his self proclaimed religious status. He shamefully tried to take advantage of the situation. People might have still forgiven him and forgotten the matter, had Mirza left it alone. And worst was still to come.

He was so full of confidence, that he kept reiterating it in an increasingly forceful manner. He boasted:

“Wait for the (fulfillment) of prophecy mentioned in the announcement of 10th July 1888, along with which there is also appended this inspiration: And they ask thee if this is true. Say: Yes, by my Lord, it is true and you cannot prevent it from taking place. We have ourselves wed thee to her. There is none to change my words. And on seeing the sign, they will turn their faces and will say: This is thorough deception, and a thorough magic.” (Asmani Faisla p.40, Roohani Khazain Vol.4 P.350)

 In his letter addressed to the ulema and spiritual leaders (Pirs) of India, Mirza wrote in Arabic:

“Predestination is bound to prevail and God has finally decreed it and so the time for it (i.e. marriage) will inevitably come. By the One who has sent to us Muhammad al Mustafa and made him the best of  Messengers and the best of creatures, verily this is truth and you will see it and I shall make this news the criterion of my truth and falsehood. And I did not say this until I was informed about it from God.” (Anjam-e-Atham P.223)

Emphasizing the significance of this prophecy and stressing it to be the sign of God, he said:

“In respect of this (Prophecy) some of the fair minded Arya authors have also borne witness that if this prophecy  were fulfilled it would  indeed be an act of God. And this prophecy is against harsh people who it seems have drawn the sword of enmity and spite, and  whosoever knows  the state they are in, will be well aware of the great significance of this  prophecy. Everyone who will read the announcement, no matter how prejudiced he is, is bound to agree that the content of the prophecy  is beyond the capacity of man.” (Izala-e-Auham p.199)

April 16,1891 – Mirza started having doubts about the prophecy but his god reassured him

Once he became ill and he thought that he was going to die. He was apprehensive about the fulfillment of this prophecy, he received  fresh inspiration reassuring him. He wrote:

“ Soon after this prophecy was revealed and was yet to be fulfilled, just as it has not been fulfilled as yet, that is by April 16,1891, this humble one encountered a severe ailment bringing me so close to death that I got even my will drawn up. At that critical moment the prophecy almost came before my eyes and it appeared that the last moment had come and that the next day would be my day of funeral. At that time I thought of this prophecy that may be it had some other meaning which I had not understood. Then in that  critical condition I received the inspiration:

‘This thing is truth from thy Lord. Why do you doubt?’ ” (Izala-e-Auham P.199)

Once again he was reassured. Mirza’s marriage with Muhammadi Begum was a settled matter, a matter which had been decided upon in the heavens and hence there was no possibility of any alteration. He announced  that this was not only the criterion of his veracity but also of the veracity of the One who had communicated it to him. And since he considered himself  to be the  true representative and advocate of Islam and his own prestige to be synonymous with the prestige of Islam, he regarded the matter as one involving the victory of Islam itself.

Mirza stoops to Conquer

But as luck would have it Mirza Ahmad beg spurned the proposal and decided to give his daughter in marriage to another of his relative, Mirza Sultan Muhammad. Mirza Ghulam came to know of it. Owing to his exuberant enthusiasm and his intense confidence in regard to his ultimate success, the matter had already been widely publicised. It had been mentioned in newspapers and magazines and had become talk of the town. Hindus, Sikhs and Muslims all were keenly interested in the developments of this case. Mirza’s divine marriage affair had suddenly become more important than any royal marriages. Numerous challenges that he had published from time to time had rendered the matter extremely delicate and complex. The members of the girl’s family, who had religious differences with Mirza Ghulam and whose self-respect had been hurt by public announcements by Mirza, categorically rejected Mirza’s proposal. However from Mirza’s point of view the matter had become so serious that the establishment of matrimonial relationship had become a matter of grave importance for him, a test of his truthfulness and lies. He had announced the prophecy in such categorical and definite terms that it was hard for him to back out of that position or even to reinterpret the prophecy to mean something else  than what it apparently meant.

Theoretically, however, Mirza believed that the inspired person should strive for the fulfillment of his own prophecies and that there was nothing incompatible between this effort and his position as the recipient of an inspired prophecy.  It was because of this view that he himself had the eastern  minaret constructed at Qadian for it had been mentioned in the Hadith concerning the return of Jesus.

“If divine revelation makes something known as prophecy, and if it is possible that a man should fulfill it without fanning up a fitnah and resorting to illegitimate means, then making efforts for the fulfillment of such a prophecy is not only permissible, but also commendable (masnoon).” (Haqeeqat-ul-Wahi p.191)

Following the same principle, he set out to persuade, by all possible means, the father and other relatives of Muhammadi Begum to accept his proposal. He resorted to all the means of inducement and intimidation which he could possibly employ. In his request as  well as the announcement  of July 10 1888, both these aspects of inducement and intimidation are quite evident. In the event of the acceptance of the proposal of marriage he had promised Divine reward, whereas in the case of its rejection, he had threatened them with wrath of God.

Letters to various relatives

Once it became clear that father of Mohammadi Begum is determined to get her married to Mohammed Sultan, a man from Lahore, he started writing letters to various relatives. He wrote letters to her father Mirza Ahmad Beg, to her uncle Mirza Ali Sher Beg, to her aunt and to other relatives, anyone who could have  exerted some influence on the decision about this marriage. He asked all these people with great  meekness and humility to use  their good offices in his favor.

Mirza Sher Ali Baig was the son of Mirza Ghulam’s real maternal uncle. Mirza Ghulam’s first wife who was the mother of his two sons, Sultan Ahmad and Fazal Ahmad, was the sister of Mirza Sher Ali. Mirza Ghulam had kept her ‘mu’aliqa’ for years. Mu’aliqa means hanging, Mirza Ghulam had literally kept her hanging for a number of years; neither would he keep her in his house nor he would divorce her with ther result that for years the poor lady was staying with her parents. Mirza Ghulam also refused to pay for her sustenance allowance. Mirza Sher Ali was also uncle of Mohammadi Begum, his wife was the sister of father of Mohammadi Begum. In addition he was also the father of Izzit Bibi, the wife of Fazal Ahmad son of Mirza Ghulam.

Because of the manner in which Mirza Ghulam had treated his 1st wife, all these relatives were quite angry with him. However when Mirza Ghulam came to know that Izzat Bibi, his daughter in law and wife of his son, Mirza Fazal Ahmad, and the  mother of Izzat Bibi, the wife of Mirza Ali Sher Baig (who was  also the aunt of Muhammadi Begum), were opposed to his proposal and favoured the marriage of the girl to Mirza Sultan Muhammad, he was infuriated and he wrote letters to them. Qazi Fazal Ahmad Ludhianvi had printed these letters in his book ‘Kalima Fazl-e-Rehmani’. These letters were preserved with Mirza Sher Ali Baig, from whom Shaikh Nizauddin of Raahol obtained them and gave it to Qazi Sahib. These letters are reproduced here to shed light into the mentality of this man who claimed to be the Divinely appointed reformer of Islam/Messiah/Mahdi. (Raees-e-Qadian by Abul Qasim Dilawari p.142-147; Qadiani Mazhab by Prof Ilyas Burni)

1st Letter:

On 2nd May 1891 Mirza Ghulam wrote to his brother in law, Mirza Sher Ali Baig:

“My Affectionate Mirza Sher Ali Sahib. Assalamo alaikum wa rehmatullah. God knows very well that I had never treated you as separate and I consider you a nice mannered, good natured person and steadfast on Islam. But now what I am going to tell you, it will hurt you a lot. For the sake of God I want to break my relations with them who consider me who think of me as small and do not care about religion. You know that regarding Mirza Ahmad Baig’s daughter, how much my hostility is there with them. Now I have heard that on the 2nd or 3rd of Eid that girl is going to get married and people of your household are included in these discussions. You understand that the participants of this marriage are my stiff enemies, rather they are enemies of Islam. They want Christians to ridicule, and please the Hindus and do not care about the Religion of Allah and His Rasool. And they have firmly decided about me that I should be disgraced and blackened my face. They are about to use the sword from their side. NOW IT IS GOD’s WORK TO SAVE ME. IF I AM FROM HIM, HE WILL DEFINITELY SAVE ME. If the people of your household had joined together and tried to persuade your brother, why should he not have given his consent? Do I belong to a low caste so that it would be a shame to marry the girl to me? On the other hand he kept on seconding my propsal, but quite recently I have been left at the mercy of his bother and now all have united on the question of the girl’s marriage. What do I have to do with a girl? She might be married to anyone. This was merely a test, those whom I considered to be my own and from whose daughter I wanted to have offsprings and my heirs are now thirsty of my blood. They are now after my honour and want me to be put to shame and to have a blackened face. It is up to God to dishonour whomsoever He wills. But so far as these people are concerned, they indeed want to hurl me into the fire. . . . . . Since I am such a low-caste then there is no reason to keep relation with my son. Therefore I have written to them that if you do not abstain from your intention (of marriage of Mohammadi with someone else) and will not stop your brother with this marriage, then as you want, my son Fazal Ahmad will also not be able keep your daughter in his wedlock. Instead as on the one end Mohammadi’s marriage with someone else is taking place on the other end Fazal Ahmad will divorce your daughter. If he does not divorce her, then I will disinherit him. But if you fight with Ahmad Baig for me and stop him from his intention, then I am yours with my heart and soul, and Fazal Ahmad, who is now in my control, I will correct him in every respect and will try to organise everything for your daughter and my wealth will be their wealth. Thus I am writing to you as well that take advantage of this opportunity, and write a strongest letter to Ahmad Baig that he should stop and instruct your household that they should fight their brother to stop him, otherwise I SWEAR UPON GOD, I WILL BREAK ALL THESE RELATIONSHIPS FOREVER. If Fazal Ahmad wants to become my son and inheritor then he will keep your daughter in his house when your wife’s happiness is proven; otherwise as soon as I go, all relations are broken…
From: Khaksar Ghulam Ahmad, Ludhiana, Iqbal Gunj dated May 2, 1891.”
(Kalma-e-Fazl-e-Rehmani by Qazi Fazal Ahmad, collection of letters of Mirza Ghulam to the relatives of Mohammadi Begum. cited in Qadiani Madhhab and Raees-e-Qadian)

4th May 1891 Reply of Sher Ali Baig to Mirza Ghulam:

“My brother Mirza Ghulam Ahmad. Assalamo alaikum. I recieved your letter. It is your kindness that you consider me nice-natured and pious. But I do not accept your concocted prophethood and pray to Allah that may He keeps me on the way of pious ancestors and give death on it… What can I do about Ahmad Baig. He is a simple muslim. Whatever has happened, is because of you. Had you not spoiled your faith and started claiming to recieve inspirations, had you not threatened with death, nor would he have refrained from you. This is true that you proposed as a relative, but think yourself that if in your place is Ahmad Baig and you are in his place, then say by God, what things would you consider before accepting the proposal? If Ahmad Baig had asked for this marriage and he had been a collection of sickness, over 50 years of age and on top of that he had surpassed even Musailma Kazzab (Musailma Kazzab was a false claimant of prophethood) in his claims, then would you have given the hand of your daughter?You should not have gone out of control while writing the letter. There are girls in every house and the system of the world progresses in such manner. There is no harm if you get her a divorce, this will be a new tradition of prophethood and you will have to accept the blackness of ignomony on your face. As far as the bread is concerned, God will provide it from somewhere, if not fresh, dried will do, but that dried is better which is earned by ones efforts.

I am writing to Brother Ahmad Baig, and I am also sending your letter alongwith. But I cannot do anything in his presence and what right does my wife has to ask for her brother’s daughter the proposal of an eternally sick man whose mental illness has progressed to divinity …. yes if he accepts himself, then me and my wife will not object. You write to him personally, but your pen has become used to writing harsh and strong words. As much as it is possible, refrain from such writings and try to beg and request.

Khaksaar, Ali Sher Baig, Qadian dated 4th May 1891″
(Nawishta-e-Ghaib by Khalid Wazirabadi pp.126-128, cited in Qadiani Mazhab by Prof Burni p.463)

4th May 1891 2nd Letter:
Around same time he wrote following letter to the wife of Mirza Sher Ali Baig (she was paternal aunt of Mohammadi Begum)

“Mother of Izzat Bibi should know that I have received this news that within few days Mohammadi is getting married. I HAVE ALREADY SWORN UPON GOD THAT WITH THIS MARRIAGE I WILL BREAK ALL RELATIONS, NO RELATIONSHIP WILL REMAIN. Therefore I am telling in the way of advice that make your brother Ahmad Baig understand and cancel this intention and in whatever way you can make him understand do it. And if this does not happen then today I have written letters to Molvi Nuruddin and Fazal Ahmad that if you do not refrain from your intentions then Fazal Ahmad should send divorce paper for Izzat Bibi. And if Fazal Ahmad refuse to write divorce paper, he showed be disinherited and after me he should not be considered my heir and not a single paisa should he inherit. Thus I hope that a conditional divorce paper would come from him, whose text would be that if Mirza Ahmad Baig does not stops from marrying Mohammadi to someone else, then from the same day when Mohammadi marries someone else, Izzat Bibi gets three divorces. Thus writing like this, here as Mohammadi gets married to someone else, there Izzat Bibi will get divorce from Fazal Ahmad. Thus this is conditional divorce and I swear upon God, there is no other way except accepting it. And if Fazal Ahmad refuses, then I will immediately disinherit him and he will not get a single grain from my inheritence. And it would be better for you if you make your brother understand now. I am sorry that I wanted everything good of Izzat Bibi and with my efforts everything good would have turned out but destiny dominates a person. Remember I have not written anything in bluffing manner, I have sworn on God that I will do exactly as it is and God is with me. The day marriage takes place, marriage of Izzat Bibi will no longer remain valid.

From: Mirza Ghulam Ahmad, Iqbal Gunj, Ludhiana May 4, 1891″

4th May 1891 3rd Letter:
From Izzat Bibi to her mother. It was written on the instructions of Mirza Ghulam.

“From Izzat Bibi to Mother. At the moment think of my destruction and ruin. Mirza Sahib treats me nicely. If you can talk to your brother, then you can convince him, otherwise, I will be divorced and I will be too much disgraced. If you do not agree then take me from this place soon, since it is not nice to stay here.”On this letter Mirza ghulam wrote with his pen:
“As Izzat Bibi has stressed if the marriage cannot stop then without delay send someone from Qadian to take her away.” (Mirza was staying in Ludhiana those days, and probably Izzat Bibi was also staying with him.)

Just in these three letters, one can discover so many un-Islamic statements – Fabrication in the name of God, Breaking the relations, Oppression, swearing for an oppresive act, making a false oath, taking revenge from an innocent person, ordering someone to divorce, to disinherit a legal heir, fabricating an inspiration etc. etc.

17th July 1891 4th Letter:

After about 2 months Mirza Ghulam wrote a letter to Ahmad Baig, father of Mohammadi Begum.

“We swear upon God AlMighty Omnipotent, that I had recieved an inspiration that your daughter’s marriage will take place with me. If it takes place somewhere else, then unpleasant things will descend from God and ultimately it will take place with me. Since you were dear and related to me, I stressed on you with good intentions that marrying her somewhere else  would not be a blessed act. I would have been extremely cruel-natured if I had not told you this and I still make a request to your honour, with humility and respect, not to refrain from this (marriage)  relationship. For this will be a means of great blessing for your daughter and the Exalted Allah will open the doors of Divine Grace which you cannot even conceive of; no worries and no sufferings would be there as THIS IS THE ORDER OF THAT WHO HAS THE KEYS TO HEAVENS AND EARTH then why should there be any ruin in it. And you may or may not that this prophecy of the humble one has become famous in thousands of people and I think there would be perhaps more than one million people who have information of this prophecy and a world is watching for it and thousands of Christian priests are waiting, not with mischief but with stupidity, that this prophecy turns out to be false and they gain strength BUT DEFINITELY GOD WILL DISGRACE THEM AND WILL HELP HIS RELIGION. I had been to Lahore and  found out that thousands of Muslims fervently pray in the mosques after prayers for the fulfillment of this prophecy. Thus this is sympathy and is required by their love of the faith. And as this humble one believes in La ilaha illAllah Muhammadur Rasoolullah, similarly I believe on those inspirations which continuously descends on from God and I request you to share with your own hands in fulfilling this prophecy so that the blessinggs of Allah may descend on you. No one can fight God and something which has been decided in heaven, it can never change on earth. May God give you the blessings of the world and deen and now put that thing in your heart, for which he had send me the inspiration from heavens. May all your sufferings vanish, may God give you both religious and worldly (blessings).
From Mirza ghulam Ahmad. 17th July 1891″

1891 5th Letter:

To Ahmad Baig:

“Then I wrote one letter on the instructions of God and on his signal, to Mirza Ahmad Baig, in which I wrote:My dear listen! Why do you consider my serious request a useless and do not trust what I say? By God, I do not want to give you any suffering. InshaAllah you will see how much I will oblige you. If, against the wishes of my family, you accept my proposal then I promise you on oath I will give you share from land and orchard and because of this marriage the differences between us will vanish. If you accept what I say it will be a matter of benevolence and gratification and kindness towards me and I would be grateful to you and I will pray to the Most Compassionate One for your long life; and I promise you to transfer one third of my property to your daughter and I say honestly that I will give you from it whatever you will ask of me. IN such circumstances you would not find another person in ‘sila rehmee’ (taking care of relations), and loving the relations and protecting the rights of relations. You will find me your helper and saviour in your difficulties, I will bear all your burdens. Thus do not waste time in refusal and do not give way to doubts. I AM NOT WRITING THIS LETTER OUT OF MY OWN WILL, INSTEAD IT IS WRITTEN WITH THE ORDER OF MY GOD. THIS LETTER IS FROM GREAT TRUTHFUL AND TRUSTWORTHY PERSON. Keep it safe in your trunk. God is witness that I am truthful in my statement and whatever I have promised you, is from God and I have not said anything in this from myself instead whatever is said, God had told me to say through inspiration. This was the instruction of my Lord which I have fulfilled, otherwise I did not need you or your girl. IF THE TIME OF THIS INSPIRATION PASSES AND THE TRUTH DOES NOT APPEAR, THEN PUT A ROPE IN MY NECK AND CHAIN MY FEET, AND GIVE ME SUCH A PUNISHMENT WHICH NO ONE HAS RECEIVED IN THE WORLD.” (Kalma-e-Fazl-e-Rehmani by Qazi Fazal Ahmad, collection of letters of Mirza Ghulam to the relatives of Mohammadi Begum. cited in Qadiani Madhhab, Aina-e-Kamaalaat-e-Islam, Roohani Khazain vol. 5 p. 573-574)

Letters to Bridegroom

Apart from the above letters, Mirza wrote several letters to the would-be bridegroom and threatened him that if he marries Mohammadi Begum, then he would receive divine wrath and he would be destroyed. He wrote:

“The fault of the son-in-law is that he did not care even after seeing the advertised intimidation. Repeated letters were sent to him, he did not ge scared, message was sent to him to make him understand, no one took any notice and didn’t bother to break with Ahmad Baig, instead they were all together in insulting and ridiculing. So this was the fault that after listening to the prophecy, they agreed for the marriage.” (Tabligh-e-Risalat vol.3 p.166, Collection of Advertisement vol.2 p.95)

Other Measures:
It seems that Mirza Ghulam even tried to spend money to get this whole affair succeed. Following statement of Mirza Basheer Ahmad, highlights this aspect:

“Once Hazrat Maseeh Mowood (Mirza Ghulam) stayed in Jalundhur for nearly a month. In those days one of the real uncles of Mohammadi Begum tried to arrange the marriage of Mohammadi Begum with Hazrat Sahib but did not succeed. This is in those days when Mohammadi Begum had not yet been engaged with Mirza Sultan Mohammad. This uncle of Mohammadi Begum used to travel between Jalundhur and Hoshiarpur on a Tonga (horse-cart) and he also wanted some gift from Hazrat Sahib. And since the secret of marriage of Mohammadi Begum was mostly in his hands, therefore Hazrat (Mirza) Sahib had promised him some reward as well. But this man was ill-intentioned in this matter and only wanted to extract some money from Hazrat Sahib, because later same person along with his friends were responsible for fixing the marriage somewhere else. But Hazrat Sahib had also adopted certain clever policies regarding giving money to him.” (Mirza Basheer Ahmad in Seerat-ul-Mahdi vol.1 p.174)

Mirza’s god kept reassuring him about this marriage

January 1892, just couple of months before the mariage, Mirza told everyone:

“Wait for (the fulfillment of) the prophecy mentioned in the advertisement of July 10, 1888, alongwith which there is also appended this Inspiration:


Despite all reassurances from his god, despite all efforts, offers of rewards, threats of divine wrath, On 7th April 1892 Mohammadi Begum got married to Mirza Sultan Mohammad

Mirza took the revenge

This so-called prophet/messiah/mahdi took the revenge from his family. He carried out what he had threatened earlier:

      • Mirza divorced his 1st wife (who was related to Mohammadi Begum and was against her marriage with Mirza)
      • Mirza forced his son, Fazal Ahmad, to divorce his wife, Izzat Bibi.
      • Disinherited his other son, Sultan Ahmad.
      • Broke all relations from his family members who were involved in the marriage.

(Tablighe-e-Risalat vol.11 p.9)

1892 Qadiani prophet kept dreaming about Mohammadi Begum after her marriage

This false prophet kept dreaming about Mohammadi Begum, several months after her marriage:

“25th July 1892/ 20th Zil Hajja 1309 AH, Monday. Today at the time of early morning (Subhe Sadiq) 4.30 am I saw in a dream that there is big mansion in which my wife, mother of Mahmud and another lady are sitting. Then I filled water in white coloured water bag and lifted it and filled my pot. After pouring the water I saw that that other lady who was sitting suddenly came near me wearing RED and BRIGHT COLOURED Dress, probably a cloth made of net. I thought in my heart that it is the same woman for whom I had given advertisement (i.e. Mohammadi Begum) but her face seemed to be that of my wife; As if she said in heart that I have come. I said ‘O Allah May she come’, and then that woman embraced me. Upon her embracing I woke up. I am grateful to Allah for this. Two three days before this I saw in the dream that Roshan Bibi is standing at my doorstep and I am sitting inside the verandah. Then i said, ‘Roshan Bibi come inside.” (Tazkirah p.197)

“14th August 1892, 20th Moharram 1309AH. Today I saw in my dream that Mohammadi Begum, about whom there is prophecy is sitting in outside room with some people and her body is naked and is very ugly looking.” (Tazkirah p.198-199)

Mirza Ghulam continues to pursue the married girl

Despite this marriage of Mohammadi Begum to Mirza Sultan Muhammad, Mirza did not despair. The father of Mohammadi Begum died few months after the marriage, and this boosted Mirza’s confidence and he started making more grandiose claims. He did not have the decency to leave the married girl alone. Shamelessly he kept pursuing the lady with his statements and satanic inspiration.

1893 After the marriage of Mohammadi Begum, Mirza wrote in his book, Aina-e-Kamalaat-e-Islam about this prophecy in 1893. It is worth noting that Mirza Ghulam claimed that during the writing of this book twice he saw the Holy Prophet SAAW in his dream and expressed his happiness about the writing of this book and once he saw an angel calling peoples’ hearts towards this book and saying: ‘This is the blessed book, stand up for its respect.’ (Roohani Khazain Vol.5 P.7) (Another blatant lie of course as future events proved - author)

Thus in this book he re-iterated his claims:

“I have presented you one prophecy and this is enough proof to judge my truth and lies, because it is not possible that God will help a LIAR and a FABRICATOR. Alongwith this I must say that regarding this prophecy, there are other two prophecies which I had published in the advertisement of 10th July 1888, whose subject matter was this that God will bring that lady back to me after making her a widow. Now look at it with justice that no one can depend on his own life and neither can he claim for another person that he will remain alive till such and such time or die at such and such time. Instead, In my prophecy (about Mohammadi Begum), there are not one but SIX claims:

      1. Till the time of Marriage, I will stay alive;
      2. The father of that girl must be alive till the time of Marriage;
      3. Then after the Marriage, the father of this girl should die quickly who will not live more than three years;
      4. Her husband should die within two and a half years;
      5. Till such time that I marry her, that girl should remain alive;
      6. And finally throwing aside all cultural bonds of becoming a widow and despite severe opposition from her relatives, she should come in my wedlock.

Now say honestly, are these things in the hands of mortals?”
(Aina Kamalate Islam, Roohani Khazain vol.5 p.325)

1893 Mirza gave a sworn statement in the Court of Gurdaspur:

“The prophecy regarding the daughter of Ahmad Baig, which is mentioned in the advertisement, it is a well known matter, she is the neice of Mirza Imamuddin, the letter to Mirza Ahmad Baig quoted in Kalima Fazl-e-Rehmani is mine, and this is true that that woman has not been married to me, but she will be definitely married to me, as mentioned in prophecy. She got married to Sultan Mohammad as mentioned in the prophecy. I am telling you the truth in this court, where I have been ridiculed about things which are not from me from God. A time is coming when all heads will hang in shame ….  woman is still alive, she will assuredly come into my wedlock. What hope! I have firm belief. These are things of God, cannot be cancelled, it will happen.” (Statement of Mirza in Gurdaspur Court in Manzoor-e-Ilahi p.244-245 by Manzoor Ilahi Sahib Qadiani Lahori cited in Qadiani Mazhab p.473)

1894 Mirza Ghulam writes another inspiration:

“I prayed earnestly to God, then he sent me an inspiration that I will show these people a sign from them. God took the name of the girl (Mohammadi Begum) that she will be made a widow and then her husband and her father will die within three years from the day of marriage and then I will bring this lady back to you and no one will be able to stop this.” (Inspiration of Mirza Ghulam, Karamat-us-Sadiqeen, Roohani Khazain vol.7 p.162)

September 1894  Another Inspiration from God:

“The elder daughter of Ahmad Baig will be married else where, then God will bring her back to you, that is she will ultimately come into your wedlock and God will remove all obstacles from its way. Words of God cannot change.” (Collection of Advertisement vol.2 p.41)

1894 In his first announcement OF 1888 Mirza had prophesied that the person to whom Muhammadi Begum would be married would die within two and a half years after the marriage. This period elapsed and Mirza Sultan Muhammad remained alive, enjoying a happy married life. This forced Mirza to extend the lease of his life. In announcement of September 6 1894 he wrote:

“The Quran tells us that the duration indicated in such prophecies belongs to the category of conditional predestination. Hence, owing to the appearance of factors causing some change or alteration, postponement of the  stipulated term and period does take place. This is Divine  Law and the Quran is replete with this. Hence for every prophecy  which is made through inspiration or revelation it is essential that its fulfillment should conform to the  Divine Law as embodied in the Books of the Exalted God. And at the present time another benefit aimed at from this is that those aspects of Divine knowledge which have been lost sight of by the people should once again be manifested and thus insight into the Quran would be renovated……The time for divine punishment is conditionally predestined which can be put off by fear (of God) and repenting (towards God) as the whole of the Quran testifies. But so far as it relates to the prophecy, that is the marriage of that woman to this humble one that is assuredly predestined and cannot be waived off, for in the Divine revelation it is clearly stated that ‘My words will never change’. For if they were to change the words of God would become false.” (Tabligh-e-Risalat vol.3 p.115, Collection of Advertisement vol.2 pp. 39-49)


1894 In the same announcement Mirza wrote:

“God will do it as he had said that I will bring that woman back after her marriage and give her to you and my Destiny will never change and nothing is impossible for me and I will remove all obstacles which are stopping in carrying out this order. Now it is evident from this Grand Prophecy that what He (God) will do and what kind of Vanquishing Might He would show. and which persons He would remove (kill) as obstacles. ….. many illiterate people would ridicule after the expiring of the time limit (of the death of Husband of Mohammadi Begum) and out of their bad luck name the truthful as liar. But those days are coming soon when these people would be embarassed and Truth will be menifested and the light of truism will shine and the UNCHANGABLE PROMISES OF GOD WILL BE FULFILLED. IS THERE ANYONE ON EARTH WHO CAN STOP THIS? BUDBAKHT (UNFORTUNATE) MAN HURRY TOWARDS MISTRUST….O ILL NATURED! SHOW YOUR NATURE, SEND THE CURSES, RIDICULE AND NAME THE TRUTHFULS AS LIARS AND FABRICATORS BUT SOON YOU WILL SEE WHAT WILL HAPPEN.

Remember the prophecy of that woman’s marriage is from that Omnipotent whose words cannot be rejected. But Quran is telling that the time period of such prophecies are from a variety of the suspended destiny (Mu’aliq taqdeer), thus because of the creation of the reasons for change and alteration of the date of occurence, definitely those dates are delayed. … this is the way of Allah……” (Tabligh-e-Risalat vol.3 p.115, Collection of Advertisement vol.2 pp. 39-49)

1894 Mirza prayed earnestly to god

“If I am truthful than God will fulfill these prophecies. If these words are not from God, then my end will be very miserable and never ever these prophecies will be fulfilled. Our Lord! Judge between us and our people in truth, for you are the best of those who give judgement. And in the end I make this dua that:O Omnipotent and Knowledgeable God! If the prophecies of severe punishment to Atham and ultimate marriage of the daughter of Ahmad Baig with this humble one, if these prophecies are from you then menifest them in a manner which becomes a sign for your creations and the mouths of dark-spirited jealous people are shut.


But if your blessing is with me and if you are the one who spoke to me and said: ‘antaa wajeehee fi hadhratee, akhtertoka le nafsee’ (you are respectable for me, I have chosen you for myself) and if you are the one who addressed me and said ‘yahmadokAllaho min arshihee’ (God praises you from His throne) and if you are the one who addressed me and said ‘ya Eisa allazee laa yoda’a waqtehee’ (O Eisa he does not waste his time) and if you are the one who addressed me and said ‘a laisAllaho bek’aafin abdehee’ (Is Allah not suffecient for his servant?) and if you are the one who addressed me and said’qul innee omirto wa ana awwalul mo’mineen’ (Say I obey your command and I am the first Muslim) and if you are the one who is probably daily telling me ‘antaa ma’ee wa anaa ma’ak’ (you are with me and I am with you), then help me and stand up in my support. Wa innee maghloobun fantaser (and I am vanquished, thus help me).

I am Khaksaar Ghulam Ahmad from Qadian, District Gurdaspur
dated 27th October 1894″
(Collection of Advertisement vol.2 p.115-116)

1896 Two years later Mirza insisted that his prophecy was true and he had no doubt about its ultimate fulfillment. He again insisted that:

“I say again and again that the essence of the prophecy, the death of the son-in-law of Ahmad Beg (i.e. Sultan Muhammad) is assuredly pre-destined, wait for it. IF I AM A LIAR, THIS PROPHECY WILL NOT BE FULFILLED AND MY DEATH WILL COME. If I am truthful then God will fulfill it just as he fulfilled the prophecies regarding Ahmad Baig and Atham .” (Anjam-e-Atham p.31. Roohani Khazain vol.11 p.31, footnote)

1896 Mirza even brags about Holy Prophet Muhammad SAAW’s prophecy about this marriage

“To confirm this prophecy, Holy Prophet Muhammad SAAW had already made a prophecy from before that ‘the Promised Messiah will marry and will have children’. Now obviously this mentioning of marriage and having children is not mentioned in an ordinary way, since ordinarily everyone marries and gets children as well, there is nothing special in that. Instead this marriage is that special marriage which will be a sign and children are the special children about which this humble one’s prophecy is already there. Thus here Rasoolullah SAAW is answering the doubts of these black-hearted disbelievers and saying that these things will definitely be fulfilled……” (Roohani Khazain vol.11 p. 337)

1896 Mirza predicts the fate of his opponents

“It should be that our stupid opponents had waited for the outcome (of this prophecy) and had not exposed their bad-nature prematurely. When all these things will be fulfilled, then that day will these idiot opponents remain alive? And will that day all these disputants not be cut into pieces by the sword of truth? These idiots will not have any place to run and black spots of disgrace will turn their accursed faces into monkeys and swines.” (Roohani Khazain vol.11 p. 337)

1896 Great Expectations kept Mirza alive

“I am not just telling you that this affair (marriage of Mohammadi Begum) has ended here and whatever has happened is the culmination and the reality of the prophecy has ended here. Rather the main affair is still pending, none can cancel it with any excuse and this fate is predestined (taqdeer-e-mubrim) from God AlMighty. Soon its time will come. By God, who sent Hazrat Muhammad Rasoolullah and made Him Best of Messengers and Best of Persons, this is absolutely true. You will see soon and I declare this prophecy as a yardstick of my truth or lies and what I have said, I have said it after getting news from God.” (Roohani Khazain vol.11 p. 223)

“Remember if the second part of this prophecy is not fulfilled, then I will become worst than any evil person. O Stupids! This is not a fabrication of some human, nor is this a business of KHABEES MUFTREE (evil fabricator). Believe it that this is the true promise of God, same God whose words are not changed.” (Anjam-e-Atham p.54. Roohani Khazain vol.11 p.338)

In 1901 he declared under oath:

“It is true that that woman has not been  married to me But she will certainly be married  to me as has been stated in the prophecy. She has been married to Sultan Muhammad, I say truly that in this court (i.e. the world) where people have laughed at things which were not from me but from God, a time will come when the events will take a strange turn and the heads of all will be downcast with remorse. The woman in still alive. She will inevitably come to my wedlock. I expect this to happen, rather, I have full faith in this. These are divinely ordained matters and are bound to occur.” (Al-Hakam Qadian, August 10, 1901)

Sept 1902 Mohammadi Begum Finally gets reprieve from Mirza Ghulam

To propose for a girl’s hand in marriage is a natural event in every household. But in the Muslim culture of even today, let alone of late 19th century, to keep an eye on a married woman is an extremely shameless act. To think about marrying a married woman, give death threats to her husband and to repeatedly publicise such things are highly immoral and scandalous. The display of such a behaviour from a man who claims to be divinely-ordained prophet of God, just shows his wicked and vulgar nature. Mirza proposed for Mohammadi Begum in 1888, she got married to another person in 1892, but for Mirza Ghulam this was not the end of the story. He kept issuing one statement after another, one inspiration after another, for the next 10 years. He was so consumed with his own satanic-inspired prophecies that he had no regard for the honour of the married woman or her family. She became the talk of the town, but he was least bothered.

Ultimately some decent Muslims got up and started thinking of ways and means of trying to free her from the vulgarity of Mirza Ghulam. In those days, a weekly newspaper was published from Lahore called ‘Jafer Zitlee’ whose owner and editor was Mulla Mohammad Bukhsh. He thought of a unique way of solving this propblem once and for all, which confounded Mirza Ghulam and all his obsession of divine marriage finally evaporated.

Mulla Mohammad Bukhsh announced in his paper that soon he is going to marry Nusrat Jehan Begum who is presently the wife of Mirza Ghulam Qadiani. In support of this announcement, he also published a lengthy dream, in which Mulla was married to Nusrat Jehan Begum (Asha’at-us-Sunnah). When this prophecy published in Jafer Zitlee Newspaper, Mirza Ghulam became furious and wrote in his book, Tohfa-e-Golraviya:

“Just as wicked opponents accused the mother of Hazrat Eisa AS, similarly about my wife, Shaikh Mohammad Hussein and his close friend Jafer Zitlee, purely as wickedness, concocted dirty dreams, have published them in a shameless manner. And in my enemosity, they did not observe that respect and manners which one should observe with the pious ladies of the Family of Holy Prophet SAAW. To call himself Molvi and such shameless activities!! Alas, thousand times Alas!” (Tohfa-e-Golraviyah, Roohani Khazain Vol.17 P.199, dated Sept. 1902)

By 1907 Mirza had lost all hopes of ever seeing the face of Mohammadi Begum. But people kept reminding him of his prophecy. He retaliated:

“It was also mentioned in the inspiration that the marriage of that woman with me has been performed in the heavens. It is true, but as I had mentioned, for the materialisation of the marriage which had taken place in heavens, there was a condition as well from God which was published then ‘ayatohal marat toobi toobi fa innal bala ‘ala uqbika’ (O woman, repent repent for the calamity is after you’. When those people fulfilled the condition, the marriage was annulled or postponed.” (Tatumma Haqeeqat-ul-Wahi, Roohani Khazain Vol.22 p.570)

Mirza Ghulam Ahmad died in 1908, a disgraced and disappointed man.

While drums  for  them, their  joyous music make
Your heart even in your grave will burn and acheMirza Sultan Muhammad had a long life. He took part in the 1st World War. He was wounded during the war but survived and both husband and wife lived happily together for nearly 40 years after the death of Mirza Ghulam.

Qadiani Attitude
In the opinion of his more staunch followers however nothing can as yet be said unequivocally; for, so long as human life is in existence there is still a possibility of the realization of this prophecy. Hakim Nuruddin the 1st successor of Mirza gave a queer explanation of the matter but very much in tune with Qadian casuistry. In the ‘Review of Religions’, he wrote the following in connection with the death of the Promised Messiah:

“Now I would like to remind all the Muslims who have had and still have faith in the Noble Quran that since those addressed in it include also their offsprings successors and  those like them then can this prophecy not include the daughter of Ahmad Beg or the daughter of that daughter? Does your law of  inheritance not apply the regulations regarding daughters to their daughters? And are the offsprings of the Mirza not has agnates? I had  often told dear Mian Mahmud that even if the Mirza were to die and this girl did not enter into his wedlock my adoration of him would remain unshaken.” (Review of Religions, Vol. VII No. 726, June & July 1908, P.279, cited from Qadiani Madhab)

Now read these statements:

  • “It is impossible that the prophecies of prophets are not fulfilled.” (Roohani Khazain vo.19 p.5)
  • “For someone to turnout a liar in his prophecies is the worst disgrace of all.” (Roohani Khazain vol.15 p. 382)

Liar died in disgrace, dejected and disappointed, as he prayed:


Thus heed the message O people if you have some common sense!
