In 1895, Mirza Ghulam Ahmad (and his team of writers) introduced the existence of a special medicinal ointment known as the Marham-i ‘Isa (ointment of Jesus). MGA and his team of writers claimed that over 1000 books of medicine mention this ointment, however, that is a lie, MGA and his team were the first group of humans to ever mention the Marham-i ‘Isa (ointment of Jesus).
Per MGA and his team, when Jesus was taken down from the cross and enshrouded before burial, a medicinal ointment, the Marham-i ‘Isa was applied to his wounds. Intuitively, Ghulam Ahmad asked why anyone would apply a medicinal ointment to the wounds of a dead body. However, this is written any book. Ghulam Ahmad was convinced that the application of the Marham-i ‘Isa to Jesus’ wounds conclusively showed that a few of the disciples must have known that Jesus was still alive after the crucifixion. It is not unreasonable or unlikely to presume that many products, including miracle ointments, have been falsely attributed to great religious figures like Jesus in the past. Until there is evidence to suggest otherwise, there is nothing conclusive to substantiate the origins of the Marham-i Isa and Ghulam Ahmad’s claim.
In 1898, MGA and his team of writers were asserting that the Marham i Esa could prevent the plague if applied to the glands (which is a lie).
In 1899, a follower of MGA (Hakim Muhammad Husain of Lahore) seems to have invented Marham-e-Isa also spelled as Marham-i-Esa and began selling it, its ingredients are unknown. However, the British government immediately stopped him (See Dard). In 1914, Hakim Muhammad Husain of Lahore became a Lahori-Ahmadi. He was taught medicine by Noorudin (see “HAKEEM NOOR-UD-DEEN”, page 151).
In 2020, the Khalifa, Mirza Masroor Ahmad took a fall and hurt his face. In the next Friday sermon, he claimed to have used the Marham i Esa to cure his wounds.
In MGA’s book, “Satt Bachan”. He mentions an ointment which must have been used for Esa (As) and by his disciples (See Hidden Treasures).
In MGA’s book, “The need for the Imam” (1898), MGA mentions Marhami Esa (see page 24). It is also mentioned in “Kashf-ul-Ghita” (1898).
See the notice called, Dawa’e Ta’un (Medicine for the plague)(23 July 1898) in Majmu’a-i Ishtiharat, Vol. 3, pp. 52-54. There is a rare translation o f this which is listed as “A Revealed Cure for the Bubonic Plague” (1898). MGA was asserting that the Marham i Esa could be applied to the glands and thus prevent plague (which was a lie).
Per Dard (page 678):
It is interesting to note here that in July 1899, Hakim Muhammad Husain of Lahore advertised in illustrated handbills and posters the uses of Marham-e-‘Isa, the ointment mentioned in old medical books as having been prepared to heal the wounds of Jesusas. He actually prepared the ointment at Lahore and sold it on business lines. But the Christian missionaries could not bear it. The Civil & Military News of Ludhiana, dated November 15th, wrote against it. They approached the D. C. Lahore, who banned the publication of the advertisement (Order dated 19th October 1899). He treated its distribution and publication as a public nuisance, because it offended the Christians. The Mushir-e-Hind, Sialkot, condemned this action of the missionaries and advised them to write instead a reasoned refutation, if they could, of Ahmad’sas contention that the ointment was made for Jesusas. The case went to the Chief Court but the Judge did not go into this aspect of the question.
The October 1903 edition continues on the article of “Jesus among the 10 lost tribes of the East” and this time mentions the “Marham-i-Esa”. This article seems to have been written by Muhammad Ali.
In “Lecture Sialkot”, Marham i Esa is mentioned.
In “Haqiqatul Wahy”, MGA’s mentions the marham-e-‘Isa [the ointment of Jesus]. It is also mentioned in “Chashma Masihi” which was publised in 1906.
In “Haqiqatul Wahy”, MGA’s mentions the marham-e-‘Isa [the ointment of Jesus].
After MGA died, in BA5, MGA mentions the Marham-i-‘Isa [Jesus’ Ointment]. It is also mentioned in “Jesus in India” which was also published after MGA died in 1908.
Khwaja Nazir Ahmad mentions the Marham-i-Isa in his famous book on Jesus in India.
