Intro
In the 1880’s, after MGA’s second marriage and his claim to receive Quranic revelations as his own, he also prophesied the birth of a son who would carry on his legacy. Ironically, he already had 2 fully grown adult sons, who he barely he even spoke to, he even boycotted their funeral. Nevertheless, in the early part of 1886, he publicized the prophecy. A few months later, a girl was born to him, she ended up dying of cholera just 5 years later, MGA had published an announcement just a week before her birth wherein he totally backpeddled, he assume that the girl as already born in MGA’s house and he was now egregiously lying. What’s interesting here is that MGA had guaranteed a son from that pregnancy, he was now walking-back that prediction. In 1887, Bashir-1 was born, MGA began to celebrate. Per Ahmadiyya records, Bashir-1 was born on August 7th, 1887, the very next day, MGA’s announcement of August 8th, 1887 was published, in this announcement, MGA claimed that Bashir-1 was the promised son, unequivocally. On July 15, 1888, MGA published an announcement wherein he stated that he would be bestowed another son (in addition to the Promised Son) whose name would be Mahmud. In November of 1888, Bashir-1 dies and MGA writes the famous “Green Announcement” wherein he argues that prophets makes mistakes in figuring out their ilham’s all the time, ironically, MGA hadn’t claimed propehthood at this point in time. In January of 1889, Mirza Basheer ud Din Mahmud Ahmad is born. MGA then goes quiet on this prophecy until 1897 in Anjam e Athim, wherein he seems to indicate that Mirza Mubarak Ahmad is the Musleh Maud, since he has turned 3 sons into 4. The same arguments are given in Tiryaq ul Qulub which was written in 1899 and published in 1902, in the 1950’s, the Lahori-Ahmadi’s would point this out emphatically, whereas the Qadiani-Ahmadi’s have refused to even comment. MGA went silent again until 1907, when Mirza Mubarak Ahmad died (at age 7-8 years old). At that point, MGA claimed that his God would given him another son in-place of Mirza Mubarak Ahmad. After MGA died, in June-July of 1908, MGA’s son, Mirza Basheer ud Din Mahmud Ahmad writes in his magazine that the “Promised-Son” doesn’t have to necessarily be a biological son of MGA. After Mirza Basheer ud Din Mahmud Ahmad became Khalifa (march 1914), his writers and editors began to write articles in the English ROR claiming that Mirza Basheer ud Din Mahmud Ahmad was the Musleh Maud. Mirza Basheer ud Din Mahmud Ahmad remained quiet however. The Lahori-Ahmadi’s seem to have also wrote about the “Promised Son” prophecy in 1914-1915 via their leader, Muhammad Ali, this book is still missing. From 1915 to 1943, everyone went silent on the “Musleh Maud” prophecy. In January of 1944, during WW-2, Mirza Basheer ud Din finally made the public claim of Musleh Maud, . This went un-challenged by Muhammad Ali and the Lahori-Ahmadi’s, in other words, they never responded to it. Later on, he called special meetings of the Community to re affirm this fact (see Al-Fazl, 1st February, 1944 also via “Truth Prevails” by Qazi Muhammad Nazeer). He made the claim of #muslehmaud at Sheikh Bashir Ahmed Sahib’s bungalow, situated at Temple Road, Lahore. After that, he gave a speech in the Jalsa at Masjid Aqsa, Qadian. Speeches by the Khalifa were then held in the following places: Hoshiarpur: on February 20, 1944, Lahore: on March 12, 1944, Ludhiana: on March 23, 1944 and Delhi: on April 16, 1944. About 1000 miles away, the battle of Imphal was raging, it was unclear as to who would win. The Japanese had their eye on India. By mid-1944, the Allied air forces enjoyed undisputed air supremacy over Burma. The last major effort by the Japanese Army Air Force had been over the Arakan in February and March, when they had suffered severe losses. During the Imphal and Kohima battles, they were able to make barely half a dozen significant raids. 20 years later, in 1965, A few months before Mirza Basheer ud Din Mahmud Ahmad died, and 10+ years after Muhammad Ali had died, the Lahori-Ahmadi’s finally responded in “Truth Triumphs” by Mumtaz Ahmad Faruqi. They exposed the suffering  and mental anguish of Mirza Basheer ud Din Mahmud Ahmad, which lasted 10-15 years before his death. They proved how he was not the Musleh Maud and how the prophecy either died with Mirza Mubarak Ahmad, or was mis-interpreted. However, the appendix has been deleted by the Lahori-Ahmadi’s, since it was embarrassing. About a year later, the Qadiani-Ahmadi’s responded with “Truth Prevails”, which was ordered by Mirza Nasir Ahmad via Qazi Muhammad Nazeer, it was published on 10-4-1966 (See page xiv).

Announcement of August 8th, 1887
https://ahmadiyyafactcheckblog.com/2019/10/28/mirza-ghulam-ahmads-announcement-of-august-8th-1887/

Announcement of July 15, 1888
MGA announces that another son will be born to him whose name will be Mahmud, in addition to the Promised Son, who had already been bestowed upon him.

1888, Monday, November 4th
Bashir-1 dies. MGA is forced to write “The Green Announcement” as defends the death of his promised on. MGA claims that Prophets and Messengers make mistakes all the time when deciphering prophecies, thus, this is not a big deal.

1889, January
2 months later, another son is born to MGA. MGA was supposed to name him only as Mirza Mahmud Ahmad, per MGA’s only announcement on the topic, however, MGA names him as Mirza Basheer ud Din Mahmud Ahmad. In 1944, during WW-2, he finally claims to be the Musleh Maud.

1893
On 26 February 1893, his book Aina Kamalate islam was published, MGA repeated his prophesy of birth of Bashir Emmanuel-to be fulfilled soon. Mirza Mahmud was 4 years old at that time which means that MGAQ did not consider him for the title. His second son was also named Bashir Ahmad, he was born on April 20th.

[A’ina-e-Kamalat-e-Islam, (At-Tabligh), pp. 577–578, Ruhani Khaza’in, vol. 5, pp. 577–578](see also, the 2009 english edition of Tadhkirah)
“”[Arabic] [Grace will arrive with his coming. He is light and is blessed and holy and is of the righteous. He will spread blessings and will nurture people on pure food and will be a helper of the faith…. He will be one of My Signs and will be the banner of My supports so that those who deny you should know that I am with you through My open grace…. He will be perceptive, intelligent and handsome. His heart will be filled with knowledge, his interior will be gentle and his breast will be filled with security. He will be bestowed the Messianic spirit and will be blessed with the spirit of security. Monday! O blessed Monday, blessed spirits will arrive on that day.] “”

1897
By 1897 (in Anjam e Athim), MGA began to think that Mirza Basheer ud Din Mahmud is NOT the promised son, most likely because he is sick all the time and can barely see, read and write. He began asserting that Mirza Mubarak Ahmad was the son who would make 3 into 4 and thus be the Musleh Maud.

1899-1902
MGA was quietly calling Mirza Mubarak Ahmad as most likely the Promised Son (See Tiryaq ul Qulub).

Tiryaq-e-Qulub (written in 1899, published in 1902), also see Mumtaz Ahmad Faruqi, Truth Triumphs, page 31.

“this prophecy of ‘increasing three into four’ was announced on 20th February, 1886, and after the birth of the three sons e.g., Mahmud, Bashir and Sharif, it was again mentioned in the Anjam-e-Athim and its Appedix, that as informed by God, the Promised Musleh (or reformer) who will increase three into four will now appear….”

1907
Mirza Mubarak Ahmad died tragically, MGA claims that his God will give him another son in-place of Mirza Mubarak Ahmad.

1908, June-July
After MGA died, in June-July of 1908, MGA’s son, Mirza Basheer ud Din Mahmud Ahmad writes in his magazine that the “Promised-Son” doesn’t have to necessarily be a biological son of MGA.

1914–1915
After Mirza Basheer ud Din Mahmud Ahmad became Khalifa, his writers and editors began to write articles in the English ROR claiming that Mirza Basheer ud Din Mahmud Ahmad was the Musleh Maud. Mirza Basheer ud Din Mahmud Ahmad remained quiet however.

1914-1915
The Lahori-Ahmadi’s seem to have also wrote about the “Promised Son” prophecy in 1914-1915 via their leader, Muhammad Ali, this book is still missing.

1916 to 1943 
Everyone went silent on the “Musleh Maud” prophecy. It was barely even discussed in the Lahori-Qadiani split.

1944
In January of 1944, during WW-2, Mirza Basheer ud Din finally made the public claim of Musleh Maud. This went un-challenged by Muhammad Ali and the Lahori-Ahmadi’s, in other words, they never responded to it (see Al-Fazl, 1st February, 1944 also via “Truth Prevails” by Qazi Muhammad Nazeer). Later on, he called special meetings of the Community to re affirm this fact. These meetings were held in the following places: Hoshiarpur: on February 20, 1944, Lahore: on March 12, 1944, Ludhiana: on March 23, 1944 and Delhi: on April 16, 1944. Qadiani-Ahmadi sources then claim,  in a conclusive argument for the Ahmadiyyah Anjuman-e-Isha‘at-e-Islam, Hadrat Khalifatul Masih IIra challenged Maulavi Muhammad ‘Ali to a prayer duel and also
added that Maulavi Sahib would never accept that challenge. (Furqan, Qadian, June 1944).

He made the claim of #muslehmaud at Sheikh Bashir Ahmed Sahib’s bungalow, situated at Temple Road, Lahore. After that, he gave a speech in the Jalsa at Masjid Aqsa, Qadian. After announcing the proclamation of Musleh-e-Maud at Masjid Aqsa, Qadian, another Jalsa took place in Hoshiarpur. The leader of the caravan of that Jalsa was Mir Muhammad Ishaq. Then, another Jalsa took place in Lahore and after that, our father passed away. The next Jalsa was in Ludhiana.

About 1000 miles away, the battle of Imphal was raging, it was unclear as to who would win. The Japanese had their eye on India. By mid-1944, the Allied air forces enjoyed undisputed air supremacy over Burma. The last major effort by the Japanese Army Air Force had been over the Arakan in February and March, when they had suffered severe losses. During the Imphal and Kohima battles, they were able to make barely half a dozen significant raids.

1945
Abdul Mannan Umar (the youngest son of Noorudin), published in a periodical entitled ‘Furqan’ of May 1945, some notes of Hazrat Khalifatul Masih I (Maulvi Abdul Mannan was editor of the journal at the time). The sense of these notes was that the advent of the Muslih Mau’ud would take place thirty years after the date when Hazrat Khalifatul Masih I, gave a discourse to this effect. Presumably in his Dars-i-Quran. The notes were published subsequently to the declaration by Hazrat Khalifatul Masih II, on the basis of a Revelation to him from God, the wording of this Revelation, in Arabic, was: “I am the Promised Messiah, his like and his Khalifa.” Hazrat Khalifatul Masih II took the Revelation to mean that he was the Muslih Mau’ud of this prophecy, which described him as gifted with the breath of a Messiah, in excellence and virtue, like the Promised Messiah himself.

1965
A few months before Mirza Basheer ud Din Mahmud Ahmad died, and 10+ years after Muhammad Ali had died, the Lahori-Ahmadi’s finally responded in “Truth Triumphs” by Mumtaz Ahmad Faruqi. They exposed the suffering  and mental anguish of Mirza Basheer ud Din Mahmud Ahmad, which lasted 10-15 years before his death. They proved how he was not the Musleh Maud and how the prophecy either died with Mirza Mubarak Ahmad, or was mis-interpreted.

1966
The Qadiani-Ahmadi’s responded with “Truth Prevails”, which was ordered by Mirza Nasir Ahmad via Qazi Muhammad Nazeer, it was published on 10-4-1966 (See page xiv).

1967
At the annual Jalsa in Rabwah, Mirza Nasir Ahmad comments on the Lahori-Ahmadi’s and their vicious attacks. However, he doesn’t tackle any major issues, he just glosses over the top.

1977
Mirza Nasir Ahmad, Khalifatul Masih III, delivered a speech at the final day of the Annual Rally of Majlis Khuddamul Ahmadiyya (Ahmadiyya Youth Organization), on November 6, 1977, at Masjid Aqsa, Rabwah, Pakistan, this speech was turned into a book named “Khilafat and Mujaddidiyyat” and published after Mirza Nasir Ahmad died in 1983, and from London.
