Intro
Mirza Mubarak Ahmad seems to have been born on June 14th, 1899 (See Al-Hakam online archives, via twitter), and died on September 16th, 1907 (See Tadhkirah). Mirza Mubarak Ahmad was the youngest son of Mirza Ghulam Ahmad. He died at the age of 9. In 1897, MGA was claiming that prophecy of Musleh Maud hadn’t been fulfilled yet.

In 1906-07, MGA was predicting that he would recover from his illness. Ahmadiyya sources have never told us what that illness was. It might have been the plague. in fact, in Haqiqatul Wahy, MGA was bragging how this son was alive during his Mubahila with Abdul Haqq. MGA kept bragging about his revelations which he says indicated.

They seem to have announced the death of Mirza Mubarak Ahmad in the Al-Badr 9-17-1907, however, the boy had already been dead and buried. MGA and his team of writers began asserting that MGA knew that the boy was destined for death. However, this is an obvious lie. After MGA died, Nuzul ul Masih was published in 1909, in this book, MGA’s team of writers assert that MGA knew all along that Mirza Mubarak Ahmad would die, which is a farce.

A Quote that show that MGA added Mirza Mubarak Ahmad to the prophecy of Musleh Maud.  

Anjam-e-Athim, pg. 14, appendix, (1897), also see, Mumtaz Ahmad Faruqi, Truth Triumphs, page 31.

…then there is another ilham which is proclaimed on 20th February, 1886, and that was that God will increase Three into Four.  At that time there was no sign of my three sons (mirza Mahmud Ahmad, Mirza Bashir Ahmad and Mirza Sharif Ahmad) who are present now ; so it seemed that the ilham meant that first of all three sons will be and then another one will be added who will make the number four.  So a greater part of this Ilham is fulfilled as God has given me three sons from this marriage (the second wife) who are here ; and the next one is awaited who will increase the number into four”

1899

He is born. MGA calls him the Musleh Maud in 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 Appendix, that as informed by God, the Promised Musleh (or reformer) who will increase three into four will now appear….”

and

Tiryaq-ul-Qulub, P. 43, original edition of 1899, via http://irshad.org/qadianism/prophecd.php

“This lad is indeed a Spark of the Light of Allah, the promised reformer, the owner of greatness and authority, possessor of healing breath like the Messiah, curer of diseases, a word of God and a lucky person.  His fame will spread to the four corners of the world, he will set prisoners free and through him all nations will be blessed.”

Tiryaq al-Qulub, page 40

Under the 25th sign, MGA writes that he considers the birth of Mirza Mubarak Ahmad as a divine promise.

Mirza said what translates to:

“As for this boy [meaning “Mubarak Ahmad”] he spoke twice in his mother’s womb.”

In 1906, via Haqiqatul Wahi, MGA claims that Mirza Mubarak Ahmad had died, most likely from plague, MGA then claims that he was able to bring him back to life.

In 1906, via Haqiqatul Wahi, MGA claims that Mirza Mubarak Ahmad had almost died after swallowing salt, MGA then claims to have given him water and thus saving his life.

An interesting reference from Haqiqatul Wahy
Haqeet ul Wahi 41 Roohani Khazain Vol.22 Page 228

“””41th sign was that , almost 20-21 years earlier I published an advertisement that God has promised to bless me with four sons who will live long. This prophecy is mentioned in Muwahib ur Rahaman page 139.i.e All praise and glories be to Allah Who blessed me with four sons in old age and fulfilled His promise. So these are four sons Mehmood Ahmed, Bashir Ahmed, Sharif Ahmed and Mubarak Ahmed who are present and alive .””

[One Hundred Fifty-Ninth] Sign—On page 58 of my book [Damimah] Anjam-e-Atham1 is recorded the prophecy in respect of Maulawi ‘Abdul-Haqq Ghaznavi which runs as follows:

After the mubahalah with ‘Abdul-Haqq, God Almighty blessed me with prosperity in every respect, increased the number of my followers to thousands, convinced hundreds of thousands of my scholarship, blessed me with the birth of another son raising the number [of sons] to three in conformity with the revelation, and then repeatedly revealed to me about a fourth son. I assure ‘Abdul-Haqq that he willnot die until he hears of the fulfilment of this revelation. If he amounts
to something, he should delay this prophecy by supplication. Refer to page 58 of my book [Damimah] Anjam-e-Atham. This is the prophecy that was made about [the birth of ] my fourth son. Then, two and half years after this prophecy, the fourth son was born during the very lifetime of ‘Abdul-Haqq. He was named Mubarak Ahmad who, by the grace of God Almighty, is alive till now. In case ‘Abdul-Haqq has not yet heard about the birth of this son, I hereby communicate it to him.

May 15, 1907

It turns out that just before Mirza Mubarak Ahmad died (the 4th son of MGA from his second wife), MGA thought that maybe by marrying him, Allah would save his life. MGA thus married a young kid (mubarak) who was like 7-8 years old to a baby girl who was like 1-2 years old (the daughter of Sr. Abdul Sattar Shah). Mubarak still died (possibly from the plague) and this baby girl was eventually married to Mahmud Ahmad in the early 1920’s. Mirza Tahir Ahmad was born from this girl!!! (See , pages 268-270).
_____________________________________________________________________________________________August 29, 1907, in the newspaper al-Badr
http://irshad.org/qadianism/prophecd.php

In several published instances, MGA asserts that Mirza Mubarak Ahmad has been healed. However, he died barely 2 weeks later.

The quote, see Tadhkirah too

“God has revealed to me that He has accepted the prayer and the illness is cured. It means that God has accepted my prayer and Mubarak Ahmad will get well.”

Mirza Mubarak Ahmad dies.

al-Hakam, vol. 11, no. 33, Appendix, p. B, via Tadhkirah

“””I saw a pit full of water in my dream. Miyan Mubarak Ahmad entered it and was drowned. A thorough search was made but no trace of him was found. Then I walked along and saw another boy sitting in his stead.”””

September 19, 1907, p. 5, Al-Badr, Via Tadhkirah

After Mirza Mubarak Ahmad died, MGA and his team of writers published a made-up revelation of MGA which would leave open the wiggle room needed to explain away the tragic death of Mirza Mubarak Ahmad.

The revelation:
“””[Arabic] There will be no remedy, nor will he be safeguarded.”””

Mirza Mubarak Ahmad is mentioned in Nuzul ul Masih, via tadhkirah, Nuzulul-Masih, p. 220, Ruhani Khaza’in, vol. 18, p. 598

“””Once I saw in a dream that my fourth son Mubarak Ahmad had died. Within a few days, he had high fever and lost consciousness eight times. The last time it appeared as if his life had come to an end. I began my supplication on his behalf and while I was so occupied I heard everyone say: ‘Mubarak Ahmad has died’. I placed my hand on him and there was no pulse or breathing and his eyes seemed petrified like those of a corpse. But my supplication brought an extraordinary change and by my putting my hand on him he began to revive and the signs of life returned. Then I announced in a loud voice to those present: If Jesus son of Mary brought any dead person back to life, it would have been nothing more than this. That is, he would have revived someone near to death like this and not one whose soul might have reached the heavens and conveyed by the Angel of Death to its last resting place.”””
