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. 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.
_____________________________________________________________________________________________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, 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 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.
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.
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.
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.”
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).
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 message of Islam. Mufti Sadiq spent about two and a half years in England and published many tracts during his stay.
Mufti Sadiq sailed from England on January 26, 1920, and reached Philadelphia in the second week of February. 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. Sadiq set up his first headquarters in April 1920 at 1897 Madison Avenue in New York City. 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.
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 left America, and returned to 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.
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 also seems to have married a Dutch lady named Hidayat Budd. This must be around 1927. The lady went with him to Qadian and I remember her residing at Mufti Sahib’s house.
He visited Karachi and Calcutta. He traveled to Sri Lanka once again to introduce the teachings of Qadianat.
He was sent to the tomb of Yuz Asaf and wrote a book about it.
He became Private Secretary to Khalifatul Masih II in 1935. He conducted the Nikah ceremony of Khalifatul Masih II with Syedah Maryam Siddiqa on September 30, 1935, and delivered a faith-inspiring address at the time.
He retired himself from the day-to-day duties of Sadr Anjuman in 1937 because of ill health but continued to render religious services as usual.
He migrated to Lahore from Qadian with the Khalifa and then later to Rawbah.
He passed away on January 13, 1957. Khalifatul Masih II led the Namaz-i-Janaza (Funeral Prayer) of this devotee of the Promised Messiah. He was buried in Bahishti Maqbara, Rabwah, Pakistan.
