Per Ahmadiyya sources only, he was born in Bhera, Pakistan on January 11, 1872(which was in British India at that time), which is roughly 100 miiles from modern day Rabwah, he died in Rabwah on January 13, 1957 at age 85. Muhammad Sadiq was a student of Noorudin in Jammu (roughly 1880–1890). Per Ahmadiyya sources, he was dropped off by his father (Mufti Inaytullah Qureshi Usmani) for religious training in the 1880’s, his father died before 1889, his mother, Faiz Bibi, joined Ahmadiyyat between 1896 and 1897, per Ahmadiyya sources only. Per the order of Noorudin, he visited Qadian in later 1890 and signed the Bait form, however, he might have also been present at Ludhiana for the firs bait in 1889, since so many lies have been told about this entire event. He would go back and forth, from his job in Jammu to Qadian quite frequently. He was never a Mufti, this title was given to him by MGA and other Ahmadi’s, who also seem to have called his father a Mufti, which is also wrong. He was a private secretary of MGA from 1891 to 1905. From 1905 to 1914, he was the editor of the Al-Badr newspaper, until it was forcibly shut down by the government.

From 1917 to 1920 he was a missionary out of the UK. In 1920 he travelled to the USA and opened a branch of Ahmadi’s. In the 1920’s, they also began to call him as Dr., however, we have proved that he had posted fake degrees while he was in America, just in an attempt to fulfill a prophecy of MGA wherein it was stated Mufti Muhammad Sadiq would get degrees.

In 1924, he returned to Qadian. His second wife was the famous dutch woman, Hidayt Budd (1929). Its unknown if they had any children. He moved to Rabwah in 1948 and died about 10 years later.
_____________________________________________________________________________________________His wife and children?

Per Ahmadiyya sources, in late 1900, when Mufti Muhammad Sadiq moved to Qadian, he moved in with his 2 children and wife. They all lived with MGA, in his inner circle, inside of MGA’s mansion. We are unclear on when they moved out or whatever happened to these kids. He also had a second wife, from Holland (Hidayt Budd)(1927), it is unknown how many children they had.

—Son, Muhammad Manzur Umar (born in roughly 1895).
—Son, Abdus Salam Umar (born in roughly 1889). See Seerat Ashab-e-Ahmad video, at the 12:45 mark). The name of his wife is also unknown.
His father?

Mufti Inayatullah, died in 1887.
______________________________________________________________________________________________His mother

Faiz Bibi, joined Ahmadiyyat between 1896 and 1897. After her bai’at (initiation) when she was returning to Bhera from Qadian, MGA walked up to the tonga (cart) stand to bid farewell to Mufti Muhammad Sadiq and his respected mother. MGA had ordered some food for their journey but it was brought unpacked. MGA tore-up a yard of cloth from his turban and gave them the food wrapped in it.
Was Noorudin really his maternal uncle?

By Age 15,  Muhammad Sadiq’s father decided it was time for him to immerse himself in religious studies further, sending him to Jammu and Kashmir to learn from his maternal uncle,  Nooruddin.
Did Mufti Muhammad Sadiq know Hebrew???

The Ahmadiyya Movement alleges that Mufti Sadiq studying arabic, english and hebrew while in Jammu.

Allegedly, in 1895-1902, Mufti Sadiq researched the Hebrew Bible to identify the prophecies related to the advent of the Holy Prophet of Islam and the Promised Messiah and some of those are recorded in He­brew on pages 111 and 138 of Tohfa-i-Golarhviyya (A Gift for Golarhviyya). He also used to copy-write the text of Hebrew extracts (as included in His Holiness’ booklet Ar’baeen IV, Page 8, related to the prophecy of false Prophets).

The ROR of Nov-1916 reports that Mufti Muhammad Sadiq is a scholar in Hebrew and Kaldani.

Allegedly, at the time when the book Minanur-Rahman (1895)(Bounties of the Gracious God) was being composed by MGA, Dr. Sadiq was directed to learn Hebrew. He learnt enough Hebrew from a Jewish scholar at Lahore to prepare a list of words for Hadhur to provide proof that Hebrew also had its origin in the Arabic language. (this book was published in 1922).

His father sends him to Jammu to learn Islam from Noorudin. At age 8-10 years old, Noorudin would place him into his legs (on his lap), and would tell him about MGA. In Zikr-e-Habib, he describes MGA as a crazy man, however innocent.
_____________________________________________________________________________________________Late 1890

He travels to Qadian and meets MGA with a letter from Noorudin, vouching for him. He was working at Jammu Highschool, Noorudin helped him get this job. He seems to have read Fath e Islam in this era, which again proves that this book was written and published in early 1890, contrary to Ahmadiyya sources. Maulvi Abdul Kareem was also working in Jammu in those days and he also vouched for Sadiq.
_____________________________________________________________________________________________1891 in Ludhiana

While MGA had his famous debates going on, Mufti Muhammad Sadiq was working as a spy on MGA’s behalf.

He seems to have been in Qadian during the double eclipse during Ramadhan. He also moved to Lahore wherein he got a job in the Office of Accountant General as a clerk, where he worked till 1901. Nevertheless, he came to Qadian every Sunday to help with editing work.

He moves to Qadian, with his wife and 2 kids and begins to live exclusively with MGA, in MGA’s house. He was also involved in writing vs. Pir Mehr Ali Shah in this era. His room was above MGA’s, and thus he heard all the conversations in the mansion.

He writes to Dowie and Piggot on behalf of MGA and issues death prophecies.

He traveled with MGA to his court cases. This was the famous case of Karam Din. It seems that MGA was denied a chair in this court case and thus, Ahmadiyya sources tell us that Mufti Muhammad Sadiq would sit on the ground and MGA would hover above him, in some weird type of way. He was also a teacher at the Talim ul Islam Middle and High School in this era.  Mufti Muhammad Sadiq was ill in these days and was given drugs by Noorudin and MGA which has high levels of opium in them.

The history of the Al-Badr newspaper (1902–1914)

After the Talim ul Islam School was shut down, MGA made Sadiq as the editor of the Al-Badr.  Since the old owner (Munshi Muhammad Afzal) and editor of the Badr had died (March 21st, 1905). This was his only job. Mufti Sadiq continued as Editor of Al-Badr till 1914.
On page 129 of his book Zikre Habib

He writes that once his 9 year old son saw a dream that a calamity is about to hit Jamaat Ahmadiyya people. So they need to sacrifice something to deter this. Hazrat Masih e Maoud (Mirza) ordered to slaughter 14 bucks (he-goats) to deter this calamity. He instructed his mureeds to sacrifice as per their financial position. An Ishtihar was published in Akhbar Al-badr by Mufti Sadiq, in this regard as under:

“The minor son of this humble writer saw a dream that a high intensity earth quake has to hit us. This earth quake appeared in the shape of a dog and said your jamaat should sacrifice. Then they will be spared. So hazrat e Aqdas (MGAQ) said member of our Jamaat should sacrifice and seek repentance from Allah.”


_____________________________________________________________________________________________May 1908

Ahmadiyya sources tell us that the offices of the Al-Badr newspaper were moved to Lahore, along with Noorudin and Maulvi Ahsan Amrohi. However, Mufti Muhammad Sadiq is not mentioned in MGA’s death narrative.
_____________________________________________________________________________________________May 28, 1908

Ahmadiyya sources tell us that Mufti Muhammad Sadiq was in Qadian and read out the announcement of Noorudin’s unanimous election as Khalifa (see Quotes from the Al-Badr, Issue of June 8, 1908, see also “Hakeem Noorudin” by Syed Hasanat Ahmad, pages 112-113).

He was sent on a preaching tour of British-India and admitted that he didn’t openly teach that MGA was a prophet.

In the Al-Badr, he wrote an essay entitled: What was the occupation of the Promised Messiah?

The Al-Badr newspaper is shut down by force by the British Government. Some governmental archives show how the Al-Badr and Nur Afshan newspapers were beefing with each other and causing lots of strife, the Ahl-e-Hadis newspaper was also involved. It seems that Mufti Muhammad Sadiq became a Christian in this era. See here—Religious Controversy between Nur Afshan and Ahmadiyya 3


He is totally missing from the scene in 1914. Obviously he sided with the Qadiani-Ahmadi’s.


He seems to have been the editor of the Sadiq, which was a new and short lived newspaper (See Walter).

The ROR of July-1916 reports that Mufti Muhammad Sadiq visited Madras, and also visited the alleged Tomb of Saint Thomas. He then argued that this was in-fact a 1900 year old tomb, just like the Yuz Asaf tomb. 

The ROR of Nov-1916 reports that Mufti Muhammad Sadiq is a scholar in Hebrew and Kaldani. It also reports that he has an M.R.A.S degree and will be sent to London soon. 

In the ROR of Dec-1916, he is mentioned by Abul Hashem Khan as someone who will be available to answer any questions by Christians in London and etc. It is written how Sadiq is an expert in Hebrew.

Mufti Sadiq left for England on March 10, 1917 as a missionary. He remained involved in the propagation of Islam during his voyage. He reached London on April 17, 1917, and joined Qazi Muhammad Abdullah who was already active in spreading the business of Ahmadiyya. Mufti Sadiq spent about two and a half years in England and published many tracts during his stay. Upon arrival, 9 converts to Ahmadiyya are also claimed, of which one is a Lieutenant in the British Army.

The ROR of June-1917 reports that the Ahmadiyya Movement has secured a location for its propaganda, it is at No. 4, Star Street, Edgware Road, London, W.2.. Mufti Muhammad Sadiq led the Eid prayer. This is very close to Hyde Park. Sayyal was mentioned as the pioneer Ahmadiyya missionary. It also reports that Mufti Muhammad Sadiq has just arrived in the UK and has converted 6 people to Ahmadiyya, of which 2 of their names are Mr. Sparrow and Mr. Bird, this is in reference to MGA’s revelation that people in the UK will accept Ahmadiyya like birds [Izala-e-Auham, pp. 515–516, Ruhani Khaza’in, vol. 3, p. 377].

The ROR of Oct-Nov-1917 reports that Mufti Muhammad Sadiq and Qazi Abdullah have converted 50+ people to Ahmadiyya in the UK. Mufti Muhammad Sadiq is headed south to Southsea, Oxford and Portsmouth. Interestingly, he is listed as having 2 degrees, M.R.A.S and M.S.P, I have no idea that stands for.

The Jan-1918 edition of the ROR reports that Mufti Muhammad Sadiq has converted some ladies to Ahmadiyya. He seems to be living in southern area of the UK, the Isle of Wight. The correspondence between Mufti Muhammad Sadiq and Mary Amelie Hunt is also posted.

The Feb-1918 edition of the ROR reports that he is working out of the Isle of Wight and gave a lecture at the Ventor Town Hall.

In the ROR of May-1918, Sadiq writes Jihad is not allowed against the British Government, as he comments on the ruins of Italy at the end of WW-1. Another of his articles is also reproduced, it was published in “Isle of Wight Advertiser”, he says the same.

The Aug-Sep-1918 edition of the ROR reports that Mufti Muhammad Sadiq has converted a white man named Mr. Anderson in 1917. Sadiq claims to have converted 6 people to Ahmadiyya, of which 3 are white ladies.

The ROR of Nov-Dec-1918 reports that on July 4th, 1918, Muftree Muhammad Sadiq was present at the same place where the ambassador of Japan had also gathered.

The Jan-Feb-1919 edition of the ROR reports that he is calling himself as “El-Mufti”. He seems to be living at Haddon Hall, Hinten Road, Bornemouth, England and dated as Feb-26, 1919. He also claims to have had a British woman named Miss Cordon has converted to Ahmadiyya. The ROR also claims that Mufti Muhammad Sadiq has been given degrees with F.C. Chrom, BPhil and A.S.P. by the International College of Chromatics and Societe International de Philogie Science of Beaux Arts, London Ahmadiyya sources claim that this was also posted in the Daily Echo.

The Mar-Apr-1919 edition of the ROR republishes many letters of Mufti Muhammad Sadiq. In one of these letters, he lies and claims to have been given 2 degrees, the “Bachelor of Philology” and “Fellow of the College of Chrematics”. Mufti Muhammad Sadiq is writing from Bornemouth. Mufti Muhammad Sadiq reports that 3 white ladies have accepted Qadianism. 

The ROR of May-Jun-July-1919 republishes many letters of Mufti Muhammad Sadiq from his address in London as 4 Star Street, W.2. and dates as April 10th, 1919. It is also reported that the Ahmadiyya Movement supports the British Government vs. Ghandi and the non-cooperation movement in British-India. Mufti Muhammad Sadiq signs off as “El-Mufti”, he also alleges that 6 British women have joined Ahmadiyya. Mufti Muhammad Sadiq also claims to have given a lectures in the month of May-1919, he mentions the lectures by Qazi Abdullah, these seem to be at the Ahmadiyya Hall, 4 Star Street, W.2., Edgware Rd, London, UK. Mufti Muhammad Sadiq then gives the names of 5 additional converts, of which 4 are women. Mufti Muhammad Sadiq was the political delegate of the Ahmadiyya Movement. Mufti Muhammad Sadiq was suffering from Granular eyelids. Mufti Muhammad Sadiq reports that a Nigerian man named Mr. Abdul Rahim Alabi Smith helped him in reading and writing, he would end up in Qadian soon thereafter. Mufti Muhammad Sadiq delivered lectures in June-1919 also, at the same Ahmadiyya Hall. He even lied and claimed that the Ahmadiyya Movement was 600,000-700,000 strong. 

The Aug-Sep-1919 edition of the ROR reports that Mufti Muhammad Sadiq presented a memoranda on Indian Reforms, in his memoranda, he lied and claimed there were 700,000 Ahmadi’s in the world. Which was basically the Ahmadiyya position on these new laws and etc.
It also reports that Mufti Muhammad Sadiq was supposed to be sent to West Africa, a man named Mr. Pedru payed for the voyage. The Oct-Nov-1919 edition of the ROR tells us he is in London and giving lectures. The Dec-1919 edition of the ROR tells the world that Mufti Muhammad Sadiq has been ordered by the Khalifa to go the USA. The essay or announcement is written by Rahim Baksh aka Dard, who is working as the 2nd Khalifa’s secretary on 11-25-1919. Mufti Muhammad Sadiq wrote a letter to Percy Heward, who seems to be a Christian preacher in the UK area, this was published in the Jan-Feb-1920 edition of the ROR. Mufti Muhammad Sadiq acted as a political delegate of the Ahmadiyya Movement to the Indian Reform Scheme.

The April-May-1920 edition of the ROR tells us that Mufti Muhammad Sadiq is detained in prison in the USA, Maulvi Sher Ali calls intolerance. Mufti Sadiq had sailed from England on January 26, 1920, and reached Philadelphia in the second week of February (2-15-1920, see ROR of July-1920). The immigration department blocked his entry into the U.S.A. on the grounds that he was not allowed to preach the message of God (See also the ROR of April-May-1920). Sadiq set up his first headquarters in April 1920 at 1897 Madison Avenue in New York City. His address was also written as: “Mufti Mohammad Sadiq Ahmadi Missioner 245 W 72 Street, New York City (USA)”.

Meanwhile, in the UK, Fateh Muhammad Sial and his team gave a list of 57 converts to Ahmadiyya in the same July-1920 edition of the ROR. It also claims that Mufti Muhammad Sadiq converted 300 people to Ahmadiyya during his short stay in the UK.

The ROR of July-1920 tells the world that Mufti Muhammad Sadiq spoke to the press about Ahmadiyya in the world and reported that there were 600,000 Ahmadi’s when MGA died in 1908. Mufti Muhammad Sadiq was inflating the numbers of Ahmadi’s to the press in the USA. Further, Mufti Muhammad Sadiq and other Ahmadi editors lied about white converts to Ahmadiyya from Europe and America. Mufti Muhammad Sadiq also reported that he had converted 29 people to Ahmadiyya on his ship ride from the UK to the USA.

On October, 1920, Dr. Sadiq moved the headquarters of the Ahmadiyya mission to Chicago because of its central location. He purchased a house in an affluent area of Chicago, at 4448 S. Wabash, and converted it to a mosque.

The ROR of Oct-1920 reports that Muftree Muhammad Sadiq has converted 40 American’s thus far. It also reports that Sadiq moved from New York to Chicago recently. The ROR also mentions that the Ahmadiyya Movement is working on an Arabic newspaper (most likely for the arab muslims living in Dearborn, MI.). They claim to be working with an Arab on this endeavor, Mr. Mohini, the newspaper is called the “Alserat”.

The ROR of Aug-Sep-1920 has an essay about Mufti Muhammad Sadiq, entitled, “An Anecdote of the Mufti”. The July-1920 edition talks about how a Hindu from India converted to Ahmadiyya through Muftree Muhammad Sadiq and took his name. Mufti Sadiq reported that 31+ people had already converted to Ahmadiyya in New York (a total lie). Mufti Sadiq even claims to have converted 6 people to Ahmadiyya, of which 5 were chinese.

In the July-1920 edition of the ROR, it is reported how Sayyal is giving lectures. Maulana Nayyar and Azeez ud Din are also working with him. The ROR also reported that a family in Birmingham had converted to Ahmadiyya, however, this is a lie. They claim this is a Jewish family and even give the names as:

1–Isaac Yeti

2–Yetta Yeti

3–Eli Yetti

4–Michael Yeti


Thus, he departed from Liverpool on 26 January 1920 and reached Philadelphia, Pennsylvania on 15 February. Upon his arrival, he was refused entry into the United States and was detained for nearly seven weeks at the Gloucester City immigration station in New Jersey. Eventually, he was allowed to enter the country and start his missionary work.

Evening Public Ledger (Philadelphia, Pennsylvania), 17 February 1920

As one of the first voices of Islam in America, he utilised every method possible to convey the message of Islam Ahmadiyyat to the masses. He visited different cities, delivering lectures and met Americans from all walks of life.

While we celebrate the historic 100-years anniversary of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Jamaat in USA in this centennial year of 2020, we try to retrace some of his journeys in the United States through newspaper archives.

Hazrat Mufti Muhammad Sadiqra was in the news from the very day he arrived in Philadelphia. Apart from local Philadelphian newspapers such as The Philadelphia RecordPublic RecordNorth AmericanEvening Bulletin and Public Ledger etc., other newspapers also reported his arrival. The headline of Pittsburgh Daily Post read:

In his letter dated 7 August 1920, he expressed his intentions to move to Chicago, considering it more suitable as the centre of the Ahmadiyya mission (Al Fazl, 23 September 1920, p. 1). And in the very next letter, he wrote that he had reached Chicago.

“Being stationed in New York, he had the opportunity to visit different cities to propagate the message of Islam. Among his journeys was a visit to Detroit, Michigan where he attended a meeting of Arab immigrant Muslims. An Arabic newspaper of New York, Al-Bayan, reported his visit in its edition of June 26, 1920 as follows:

‘[Translation] The Islamic Community in Detroit, Michigan has held a general body meeting on June 14 for the occasion of having Mr Mufti Muhammad Sadiq, one of the best men of India. He has come all the way from New York especially just to visit the Islamic Community here in this city.

‘Mr Mufti begun this meeting with the following words “In the name of Allah, and blessings be sent upon the Holy Arab Prophet”. Then he delivered his address in both English and Arabic, he expressed how the Muslims of India are highly determined and well dedicated to uplift the pride of Islam again, and how supportive they are towards their brothers in the East and the West. His address left a noble impact in the hearts of attendees.’” (Al Bayan, 26 June 1920, p. 3, 26 Court St, Brooklyn, NY)

“Mahomet Missioner Comes to Convert – Antithesis of Billy Sunday to ‘Evangelize’ America

“Boy, page Billy Sunday. Tell him there’s a competitor of his’n in the hoosegow. His name is Mufti Mohammed Sadiq, American missionary of the Prophet Mohammed, and he aims to convert Americans…

“‘When I am permitted to land,’ said Sadiq today, ‘I am going to New York to establish a center there and … to start the Ahmadi movement.’ Ahmadism, Sadiq explained, is an advanced form of Mohammedanism.” (Pittsburgh Daily Post, Sunday, 22 February 1920, p. 9)

Soon after, he took up residence in New York City. The Ahmadiyya community’s pioneer newspaper Al Hakam mentions two of his postal addresses in 1920 and they are: 245 West 72 Street, NY and 1897 Madison Ave NY (Al Hakam, 7 July 1920, p. 11)

Missionary work was carried out through articles in newspapers and correspondence with different dignitaries and other individuals. For example, Fort Scott Daily Tribune and Fort Scott Daily Monitor in its edition of 29 July 1920, page 8, under the heading of “Costly Movement on to Convert Americans to Muhammadism” reports:

“The Tribune today received propaganda from an Indian Buddihist or Mohammedan who has come to the United States to convert the country. Evidently the literature has gone to every newspaper in the United States and more is to follow in a comprehensive and costly effort to present the claims of Ahmad, claimed to be the Messiah of all religions who has come to save the people…

The ROR of Jan-1921 tells us that he is in America and has converted a few white people to Ahmadiyya, he gives his address as 4334 Ellis Avenue, Chicago, Ill (U.S.A.). The ROR of March-1921 tells us that Muftree Muhammad Sadiq was given the honorary Doctorate of Literature from Lincoln Jefferson University out of Chicago, illinois. In the Feb-1921 edition of the ROR, a few converts are mentioned as well as his work in America thus far. Being invited to Grand Rapids, Michigan, he delivered a series of lectures there in early October 1921.

In July 1921, he visited Toledo, Ohio. A local daily newspaper, The Toledo News Bee reported his visit and interview in its edition of 12 July 1921 under the heading “Plan a Mosque for Toledo”.

In the same month, he also visited Fort Wayne, Indiana and Bremen, Indiana upon the invitation of Mr and Mrs Michael Abraham. The Bremen Enquirer reported his visit on the front page of its 28 July 1921 issue, under the heading: “First Missionary of Moslems to US Visits in Bremen”.

He launches the Muslim Sunrise, a new newspaper which would be the mouthpiece of Ahmadiyya in America. He lies and claims that there are 700,000 Ahmadi’s in the world. He also claims that “Lincoln Jefferson University” of Chicago, illinois gave him an honorary doctorate degree in literature on 12-16-1920, this is a total lie, this university doesn’t even exist (see Moslem Sunrise, 1st edition, July-1921)(See the ROR of Oct-1921also). The ROR of Oct-1921 also tells us that Sadiq got an honorary doctorate of divinity from The College of Divine Metaphysics out of St. Louis (this is a lie). The ROR claims that Sadiq is now “Doctor of Divinity”.

However according to the Sioux City Journal (Sioux City, Iowa) he was there in early April 1921 and delivered a lecture on the subject of “Oriental Religions” followed by questions. (Sioux City Journal, 14 April 1921, p. 10)

Detroit Free Press (Detroit, Michigan) 13 February 1921



In February 1922, Mufti Muhammad Sadiq fell seriously ill, so much so that he even wrote his will (Al Fazl, 27 March 1922). By Allah’s grace, he recovered, but still suffered from an eye condition, for which he travelled to Niles, Michigan to be treated by the internationally known eye doctor Dr. Frederick N Bonine (1863-1941). He was advised to see the doctor twice a week and during his free time during the rest of the week, he visited nearby cities and towns to convey the message of Islam. He paid a visit to the Michigan cities of Benton Harbor and Dowagiac, along with South Bend, Indiana. There, he delivered many lectures, distributed literature and gave interviews on Islam. (Al Fazl, 8 and 22 June 1922).

In May 1922 he travelled to Chicago and once again made it the mission’s centre. The first Ahmadiyya mosque in America was built in Chicago on 4448 Wabash Avenue.

Many of his articles in the Moslem Sunrise are also published in the ROR. The Sep-1922 edition reports 116 convert to Qadianism, these are all lies.

By the end of 1922 (most probably in October), he travelled to Ross and Stanley, North Dakota (nearly 970 miles from Chicago). This is believed to be the farthest journey he had taken towards the west.

In Stanley, he delivered a lecture in Picture Hall. In all likelihood, this journey was undertaken at the invitation of some Muslim brethren residing near Ross. In his lecture, he thanked brothers Hessen Husain Jaha, Farhat, Omar and others. On his way back, he spent some days conveying the message of Islam in both Crookston and St Paul, Minnesota. (The Moslem Sunrise, Issue I, 1923, p. 166, 167).

An organisation named Exchange Club in Grand Haven, Michigan invited him to deliver a lecture on Islam at a banquet attended by a large gathering of ladies and gentlemen. Accepting the invitation, he travelled to Grand Haven in November 1922.


In The Moslem Sunrise, issue II, 1923, page 190, he mentions his tour of New York, Buffalo and Pittsburgh. The Buffalo Times under the heading “Islam Missioner Visits Buffalo” reported:

“Muhammadans of this city are rejoicing for Dr. Mufti Muhammad Sadiq, first and only missionary of Islam to come to America, is here this week. Although he has been in America for three years, this is the doctor’s first visit to Buffalo …” (The Buffalo Times, 13 February 1923, page 15).

Maulvi Muhammad Din – who reached Chicago on 29 March 1923 – was to replace him in America (Al Fazl, 14 May 1923). He spent nearly three months with the new missionary and handed him charge of the mission. While awaiting the travel expenses from Qadian, Mufti Muhammad Sadiqra visited yet more cities. As he had not yet visited the western part of America, he intended to depart from the west coast for India via Japan. That would also enable him to convey the message of Islam in western America, but the delay of travel expenses from Qadian made him give up this idea and he ended up visiting neighbouring areas instead.

In early July 1923, he was in Ashland, Kentucky and Huntington, West Virginia. Local newspapers Ashland Daily Independent and The Sunday Advertiser Huntington published his interviews (The Moslem Sunrise, July 1923, issue 4, p. 275). Travelling further, he reached Williamson, West Virginia and met some Muslims working as coal miners (Al Fazl, 4 September 1923). Logan, West Virginia was his next stop where he was invited by some locals.

In his report in Al Fazl, dated 9 October 1923, he mentioned his stay and preaching activities in Washington DC, Philadelphia and New York.

As he was to depart from the Port of Boston, he travelled to Boston, making a short stay in Springfield, Massachusetts. He made good use of his time before departure by delivering eminently successful lectures in Peabody, a city in the suburban area of the North Shore in Massachusetts.

On 8 September 1923, Mufti Muhammad Sadiq travelled by ship from America to Europe, staying a few weeks in France. He landed in Qadian, British India on Sep­tember 18, 1923, and arrived in Darul Aman on December 4, 1923 in the afternoon.

When the Khalifa left for the his tour of the UK, he left Mirza Bashir Ahmad and Mufti Muhammad Sadiq as in-charge. He went to Bombay to receive the Khalifa in Bombay on 11-18-1924.

“Mufti Muhammad Sadiq sahib is also a very loyal devotee who has ren­dered innumerable services to Ahmadiyyat. He was very dear to the Promised Messiah and was consid­ered among the elect servants of Allah. God Almighty also blessed him with the op­portunity to propagate Islam during this period.” (Al-Fazl, July 24, 1924)

Different departments were joined together with Sadr Anjuman Ahmadiyya (central executive body of the Community) in 1926 and Mufti Sadiq served as Head of Foreign Affairs, and later as Head of General Affairs, sometimes supervising both divisions. He also continued to pursue writing and public speaking. He writes and publishes the controversial book, “Zikr-e-Habeeb”, wherein many details of MGA’s life are accidentally revealed. In this book, he also helped to change MGA’s year of birth from 1839 to 1835.

He was sent to Ceylon (now Sri Lanka) in 1927. Mufti Sadiq returned to Qadian on November 6, 1927, after completing his mission in Ceylon. He then visited several cities in India (including Kinanoor Cant., Paingadi, Calicut, Bengalore, Calcutta, Brahman Barhya, Dacca, Rangpur) at the direction of Khalifatul Masih II for Tabligh purposes. He married Hidayt Budd from Holland, it is unknown how many children they had. It also unclear as to how she got to Sri Lanka. Nevertheless, he picked her up and travelled with her to Qadian and married her soon thereafter.

He visited Ka­rachi and Calcutta. He traveled to Sri Lanka once again to introduce the teachings of Qadianat.

Mufti Muhammad Sadiq brought a white lady named Hidayt Budd to Qadian from Sri Lanka, he married her a few months later. He gave a speech at the 1929 Jalsa at Qadian.

He seems to have been back and forth to Sri Lanka in this era. He was married to a new wife, Hidayt Sadiq. He also seems to have married a Dutch lady named Hidayat Budd. He picked her up and took her from Colombo to Qadian (see ror of Sep-1929).
