In 1905, MGA had a revelation of his published in his newspaper the Al-Badr wherein he described meeting an angel named Tichi Tichi. By 1907, MGA gave an explanation of this incident via Haqiqatul Wahy. However, this issue still haunts Ahmadi’s to this day. This is an embarrassing event in the history of Ahmadiyya. There were other strange angels who interacted with MGA, like Mithal Lal and some others.
Notebook of the Revelations of MGA, p. 39; and al-Hakam, vol. 9, no. 10, March 24, 1905, p. 2 and Review of Religions, vol. 4, no. 3, March 1905, via the 2018 online edition of Tadhkirah, just search the word Tichi.

On the night prior to Friday March 3, 1905, at 1:35 a.m. I saw in my dream that I was facing lack of money and other great difficulties and was very anxious. I asked someone to draw up an Income and Expenditure Statement but no one paid any heed to what I had said. I saw someone who was preparing a statement of accounts and I recognised him as Lachhmi Das, who was at one time Accounts Clerk in the Treasury at Sialkot. I tried to call him but he too did not come and ignored me. I felt that there was a large shortfall and there seems to be no way to make it up. In the meanwhile, I saw a righteous person of simple mien, simply clad who poured a handful of money into my lap and left so quickly that I could not even ask his name. But there was still a shortfall. Then another righteous person came whose face was lit up and who was also of simple appearance and who resembled a sufi of Kotla, who is probably named Karam Ilahi or Fadl Ilahi. He gave us some money by selling his shirt. He had the appearance of a human being but he seemed to belong to a different creation. He filled both his hands with money and poured it into my lap. This made a lot of money. I inquired his name and he said: What is there in a name? I have no name. I urged him to tell me his name and he said: Tichi. I was deeply moved that there are people in our Jama‘at who contribute so generously and do not disclose their names. Then I said: He was not a man. He was an angel. When I saw a lot of money in front of me, I said: Out of it, I shall give to Manzur Muhammad’s wife, for she is in need. It was 1:35 a.m. when I saw this dream.””

“”147. [One Hundred Forty-Seventh] Sign—Once in March 1905, owing to sparse income, the budgetary position of the Langar Khanah [Community Kitchen] was rather lean; guests were coming in multitudes but its income was comparatively meagre. Therefore, supplication was made. On 5 March 1905, I saw in a dream that a person who appeared to be an angel, came in front of me and put a large sum of money in my lap. I asked his name. He said there was no name. I said he must have some name after all. He said his name was Tichi. In Punjabi, tichi means ‘appointed time’ or ‘the one who comes exactly at the time of need’. Thereupon I woke up.
After that, by God’s grace, monetary donations poured in by post and by hand in such great abundance as was beyond expectation and imagination. Thousands of rupees were received. Anyone interested inverifying this only has to review the postal record from 5 March 1905
through the end of the year; he will see how much money was received. It should be borne in mind that this is the way of God Almighty with me that most of the time He informs me beforehand through revelation or dream when I am about to receive cash or presents etc. Signs of this kind must number more than 50,000.”””
