Intro
Seith Abdur Rahman of Madras was a Qadiani-Ahmadi and a very rich one. His name is sometimes spelled as Seth Abdul Rahman, or Seith Abdul Rehman or Seth Abdur Rahman Haji Allah Rakha, Madras. MGA was known to beg for money from him all the time. He seems to have been from a merchant family from modern day Chennai, which was called Madras until 1996. MGA mentioned him by name in 1906, via Haqiqatul Wahy, MGA mentioned how his businesses failed by 1902-1906. He was never mentioned again in the history of Ahmadiyya. Nor were any of his children.

In 2008, Mirza Masroor Ahmad visited India and Chennai. The Ahmadiyya jamaat seems to have 1 masjid in Chennai, India. It is called Masjid Haadi. In fact, the Khalifa opened this mosque in 2008, they don’t seem to have had any masjid before 2008. He was the first Khalifa to ever visit Chennai, India. They have 2 mission houses also, in Kodambakkam, Chennai, Tamil Nadu and in Adambakkam, Chennai, Tamil Nadu. 

Seith Abdur Rahman of Madras was also mentioned in Maulvi Hassan Ali’s book, Taeed
Haq (Corroboration of the Truth), in which he narrated the very interesting story of his search for the Mujaddid of the era, which culminated in his pledge to MGA (See Mujadid e Azim by Dr. Basharat Ahmad, online abridged english edition).

1906-1907

MGA mentions Seith Abdur Rahman in his book, “Haqiqatul Wahy”. It seems that Seith Abdur Rahman was suffering from a cancerous carbuncle. Maulvi Abdul Karim has died in 1905 from a cancerous carbuncle also. MGA claims that his God had already told him that Seith Abdur Rahman had recovered, then he got his letter to that same effect, this is an obvious lie. MGA mentioned how his businesses failed by 1902-1906.
