He was also from Bhera like his close friend and brother-in-law, the famous Maulvi Noorudin. He seems to have owned and operated the famous press in Qadian wherein the majority of MGA’s books and announcements were published from. He seems to have died in roughly 1909.
MGA mentions Hakeem Fadl Din of Bhera as a sincere friend in his book, “Fath e Islam”, or in english as “The Victory of Islam” (see the Lahori-Ahmadi translation).
“”””Another one of our friends is Hakim Fazal Din of Bhera. I have no words to describe the depth of love, sincerity, goodly devotion, and spiritual connection which the Hakim Sahib bears towards me. He is a true well-wisher and sincere sympathizer of mine, and has the power of discerning the truth. After God the Most High had directed my attention to writing this pamphlet, and gave me good hope by His special revelations, I mentioned the idea to several people, but none agreed with me. This dear brother of mine, however, even without my mentioning it to him, urged me of his own accord to write this pamphlet, and contributed Rs.100 from his own pocket towards its expenses. I marvel at his spiritual foresight, as to how his exhortation concurred with the will of God the Most High. He is always rendering service without show, and has contributed many hundreds of rupees to this cause confidentially, merely to attain the pleasure of Allah. May God the Most High grant him a goodly reward!””””
_______________________________________________________________________________________________1891 Delhi Debate
Hakim Fadl Din was there in Delhi with MGA as he debated lots of the ulema (See Life of Ahmad also).
He helped financially to get lots of new buildings built around MGA’s mansion.
Hakim Fadal Din started a press at Qadian in 1895. It was named Diya’ul Islam. This press produced MGA’s publications at cost price (MGA’s statement in Karam Din’s case, Section 420. I.P.C. dated. 19.8.1903). It was for this reason that MGA produced, on 15.8.1898 a detailed account of this press in the income tax case. (See statement of Hakim Fadl Din in Karam Din’s case on 20.7.1903)(See Dard also).
He is listed in the first 313 list of Ahmadi’s. He is #23. He already had 2 wives by 1896. The status of his children are unknown.
He was MGA’s co-defendant in the famous Karam Din defamation case wherein MGA had initially lost (see Also Tadhkirah).
He dies. His property at Qadian seems to have donated to the Anjuman at Qadian. The Anjuman wanted to sell the property at full price. (See pages 251-257 of “Truth About the Split”). The Khalifa wanted the property to be sold to last owner, before Hakim Fadl Din, however, the Sadr Anjuman disobeyed the Khalifa and sold the property to the highest bidder.
