Hakim Muhammad Hussain Qureshi was a Qadiani-Ahmadi and lived most of his life in Lahore, he knew most of the Lahori-Ahmadi’s. He was the famous follower of Mirza Ghulam Ahmad who MGA asked for tonic wine. It should be noted that MGA never admitted to taking opium or alcohol as medicine for any of his ailments while he was alive. In fact, MGA famously wrote about his refusal to take opium for this diabetes condition (in 1903) and would prefer to suffer, since people would mock him if he ever did. He seems to have remained a Qadiani-Ahmadi until his death. He is recorded in the Al-fazl of 1947 as supporting the Khalifa at Qadian.
In 1909, he published “Khutut E Imam Ba Nam E Ghulam” from Lahore. He wrote is because many people from the Jamaat kept bugging him to compile the letters that MGA (Hazrat Aqdas) wrote to him.
In this case, we have hard evidence which proves that MGA and his team kept wine and opium in the Masjid Mubarak. Furthermore, MGA would send his trustworthy servant to pickup the wine, Yar Muhammad, who would also stroke MGA during prayers.
Tonic wine was initially invented in the late nineteenth century at Denver, England by Christian monks. In early several decades (up to the first quarter of the twentieth century) this wine made of red wine had not only very high level of Alcohol (14-16%) and Caffeine but a very high level of Cocaine used as an aphrodisiac. This intoxicant is now banned all over the world. Tonic wine was and is very strong at addictive wine specially popular among the criminals and hooligans. It is marketed by the name of ‘Buckfast wine’.
Per Mirza Tahir Ahmad only, MGA’s wife, (Nusrat Jehan) started taking tonic wine immediately after Mirza Mubarak Ahmad was born in 1899. This is the famous case of MGA ordering tonic wine from Plommers shop in Lahore. In that same era, Mirza Mubarak Ahmad was also given port wine, since he was sick. MGA also kept Saturnes wine in Qadian and gave it out like candy. MGA and Noorudin would take wine and opium as needed, it was not a big deal, however, they never admitted to it. Mirza Ghulam Ahmad used poison, opium and wine in his medicines too. This was all very normal for life at Qadian. Opium was another drug in heavy circulation at Qadian, and MGA never admitted to its usage, nor did MGA ever admit to having wine in his house.
Sometimes, his name is spelled as Quraishi Mohammad Hussain (See Truth Prevails).

On October 20th, 1904: MGA writes a letter
In May of 1908, when MGA died, he accompanied the death procession.
In 1909, he published “Khutut E Imam Ba Nam E Ghulam” from Lahore. He wrote is because many people from the Jamaat kept bugging him to compile the letters that MGA (Hazrat Aqdas) wrote to him. In this book, the famous incident of tonic wine exposes MGA to the world.
“My Beloved Hakeem Muhammad Hussein Saheb,
Assalamo alaikum wa Rehmatullah wa Barakatohu. Presently I am sending Mian Yar Mohammad. Purchase yourself all the things that are to be purcahsed and buy one bottle of TONIC WINE from the Plommer Shop. But I want TONIC WINE, make a note of it. Rest is fine. Wassalam.
(signed) Mirza Ghulam Ahmad.Letters of Imam towards Ghulam,
p.5, Majmooa-e-Maktoobat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad towards Hakeem Muhammad Hussain Qureishi Saheb Qadiani, Owner of Rafeeq-us-Sehat Dispensary, Lahore.
He seems to be mentioned in the book, “Truth About the Split” (Aenas Sadaqat) (See the online english edition, page 234). The Khalifa refers to him in terms of the famous day in 1909 wherein the Khilafat was discussed on Masjid Mubarak.
The Lahori-Ahmadi’s admit that MGA might have taken wine and alcohol as medicines.
Statement of Dr. Basharat Ahmad Qadiani Lahori, Paigham-us-Sulh Newspaper, vol.23, No. 15, dated 4th March 1935; vol.23 No.65 dated 11th October 1935; mentioned in Qadiani Mazhab, pp. 168-169, 1995 Edition, by Prof. Mohammad Ilyas Burni
“Thus under such circumstances if Hazrat Maseeh Mowood had used Barandi or Rum himself during sickness or prescribed for his patients, then it was not against the Islamic Law, let alone Tonic Wine, which is a medicine. If he had bought it for some member of his family or friend who had recovered from some long illness and is weak or even if he had asked for himself and had used it, what was wrong in it? He used to suffer such severe attacks of weakness that his hands and feet used to become cold and the pulse, feeble. I have myself examined him in this state. Their used to be no sign of pulse. If under such circumstances according to the instructions of doctors, he had used Tonic Wine, then it was exactly according to Shariah (Islamic Law). He used to spend whole day writing. Used to pray in the night. He was getting old. Thus under such if had drunk Tonic Wine as medicine, then what is the problem in it?”
See al-Fadl June 30, 1947, July 1, 4, 12, 18, 28, 30, 1947, August 9, 14, 1947, etc, via the 2018 online english edition of Tadhkirah, pages 1090–1092
This was in terms of MGA’s prophecy that Lahore would be totally decimated by plague. Hakim Muhammad Husain Quraishi gave some sort of testimony. This was during the partition and thus, it seems that the Qadiani jamaat was asserting that people would die and Lahore would be burned during partition.
Mirza Tahir Ahmad concocts the story that MGA didn’t use tonic wine, instead, it was for his wife Nusrat Jehan and a post-pregnancy battle with depression and anxiety, which is a total lie.
