Per Ahmadiyya sources, the Khalifa, in 1918, Mirza Basheer ud Din Mahmud Ahmad contracted the spanish flu. Per the Al-Hakam archives, the Khalifa was struck on 10-18-1918. Not much was previously known about this incident, however, Mirza Masroor Ahmad recently ordered that some of this info should be released. He also admitted that many Ahmadi’s were inflicted with the plague, contrary to MGA’s predictions. The Khalifa was so sick that he wrote out his will and expected himself to die. The Khalifa was so sick that the annual Jalsa of December 1918 was cancelled. This is why Mirza Masroor Ahmad recently said that corona virus can strike Ahmadi’s and this isn’t a punishment for anyone, again contrary to what MGA wrote.
An unparalleled example of the Jamaat’s service during the Influenza of 1918
Tarikh-e-Ahmadiyyat, Vol. IV, p. 208-209:
“””After World War I, in 1918, an epidemic of influenza broke out; it was as if this outbreak caused more havoc in the world than the battlefields of the war itself. India was also greatly affected by the influenza eruption and saw deaths at an unprecedented level in a matter of days.
During the outbreak, through the guidance of Hazrat Khalifatul Masih II, may Allah be pleased with him, the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community provided great aid, service and relief for the wider public to encounter the consequences of the epidemic. Regardless of race, religion or creed, the community provided help and relief to people from every background.
Ahmadi Muslim doctors and medics not only voluntarily helped the populace in Qadian, India but from town to town and village to village they ensured medical help reached even the most isolated and deprived. Other members of the Ahmadiyya Community stepped forward and served as nurses etc.
The poor were assisted by the community through financial means and provision of supplies and food were distributed. In the days of the influenza outbreak, Ahmadi Muslim volunteers (which included Hazrat Sahibzada Mirza Bashir Ahmad) painstakingly toiled night and day, despite great difficulties, and served those in need. In some instances, when volunteers were scarce, Ahmadi volunteers who had fell ill themselves, continued to grit through and serve the ill. They would endure the pain themselves and continue treating others until their illness would cause them to drop; they had sacrificed their own rest and treatment for others.
This service was such that both friend and foe commended the sacrifice and efforts of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community. Through articles and speeches, everyone applauded and recognised the great example the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community set through their constant hard work, sacrifice and efforts in aiding those in need during the influenza outbreak of 1918.”””
