In 1906, in the English-Review of Religions, MGA seems to have written that his God named his “Mirza Ghulam Qadiani”, he also said that he was named as such since this name equals 1300 when the Arabic letters are all counted together. It is an ancient system of writing any amount without ‘Arabic’ numerals in the Arabic language. It is more like Roman Numerals where alphabet denotes count, like XXIV is 24 in Roman numerals. It is memorized as abjad hawwaz huttee kaliman sa’fas qurshat sakhaz dadhagh! MGA mentions this in many places with many connotations. The problem is that he could include ‘Mirza’ in his name or not, depending on whatever whim he had at that time. There is a so-called revelation by MGA ‘kalbun yamootu alaa kalbin’ — a dog died on a dog’ or ‘as a dog’. Kalb = dog = 52. And they say Bhutto was hanged at 52 years old. Now, how he was a dog remains to be explained. And why was Zia not a dog? Go figure. The scan in the below is taken from the Lahori-Ahmadi english translation of Kitab ul Barriya.
