Imad-ud-Din Lahiz (1830−1900) seems to have been born a Muslim and apostated and thus became a Christian in 1866. He called himself Lahiz and says that he belonged to Panipat and was a Taili by caste (See Manshur-e-Muhammadi, Bangalore, Vol.1, No. 19, dated Dhilhij 27th, 1268 A. H.).
Per #ahmadiyya sources, MGA’s first interaction with Padre Imad ud Din was in 1886. It seems that MGA sent him his announcement in terms of the Musleh Maud prophecy. After the Athim prophecy failed, Padre Imad ud Din seems to have poked fun at MGA. He died in 1900. He is mentioned in the ROR of Dec-1939.
He assisted Rahmatullah Kairanawi alongside Muhammad Wazîr Khân to represent the Muslim side in a widely publicised Muslim-Christian debate featuring German Christian Karl Gottlieb Pfander in Agra, 1854.The interest of the debate aroused, led a number of Muslims to read Pfander’s literature and consider the questions that had been discussed. Some, such as Imad ud-Din Lahiz himself and Sufi Maulvi Safdar Ali who was also in attendance and a close friend, subsequently converted to Christianity. Imad ud-din Lahiz was so impressed with Pfander’s arguments in his work Mizan Al Haqq (The Balance of Truth) that he noted upon his conversion to Christianity:
“We can now, I think, say that the controversy has virtually been complete … [that] the Christians have obtained a complete victory, while our opponents have been signally defeated.”
He quits Islam and becomes a Christian. His first book Tahqiqul Imam was written in 1866 (See Dard).
Hidayatul Muslimin is published (see Dard).
MGA mentions Imad ud Din in BA1+2.
MGA sends this his announcement in terms of the Musleh Maud prophecy (see ROR of Dec-1939 also).
After the Athim prophecy failed, Padre Imad ud Din seems to have poked fun at MGA.

His books, see Life of Ahmad by Dard
His books Tarikh-e-Muhammadi and Hidayatul Muslimin had inflicted deep wounds upon the
religious susceptibilities of the Muslims. Even the Hindu Parkash of Amritsar (Vol. 2, No. 40, dated October 12th, 1874, pp. 10, 11) had protested against his bitter attacks. Another Hindu paper, Aftab-e- Punjab had also condemned his writings (Vol. 2, No. 39). A Muslim had exposed this paid preacher of the Christians in a book entitled ‘Uqubatud Dallin. Even the organ of the American Mission, Shamsul-Akhbar of Lucknow, had admitted the abusive nature of Imadud-
Din’s writings in its issue of October 15th, 1875, No. 15, Vol. 7, p. 9. This man was now let loose upon Ahmadas by his Christian masters to mitigate their sense of defeat. He wrote a book Tauzinul-Aqwal, (1893) in which he not only poured abuse upon Ahmadas and Islam but also incited the Government against him like the Scribes and Pharisees of old.
