Malik Ghulam Farid (1897–1977), was a notable Ahmadiyya scholar. He was deputed the task of preparing various commentaries on the Quran, in urdu and english. In 1915, the Qadiani-Ahmadi’s published an english commentary of the Quran (and ascribed to the 2nd Khalifa, who didn’t know english and failed his matriculation exam)(it was only 2 chapters and discontinued), this was done to counteract the Lahori-Ahmadi’s. Muhammad Ali and the Lahori-Ahmadi’s published their famous commentary in 1917 and from London, England, the Nation of Islam used this commentary to create their kufr.

Malik Ghulam Farid Urdu/English commentaries were ascribed to the Khalifa, Mirza Basheer ud Din Mahmud Ahmad and appeared with only nine chapters along with an introduction in 1947, the Khalifa signed off on the introduction on 2-28-1947, thus it was published in late February from Qadian, British-India. That introduction is now its own book called, “Introduction to the study of the Holy Quran”. This was the first instance of the Ahmadiyya movement (Lahori or Qadiani) arguing that there were humans on Earth before Adam (as) of the Quran arrived and were Jinn. Ahmadiyya sources claim that “Tafseer-e-Kabeer” was split into two parts. Volume 1 part I, containing the introduction & the first two chapters (now Vol. 1), was reprinted in 1964, and volume 1 part II, dealing with the next seven chapters (now Vol. 2) was reprinted in 1965 in Pakistan. The first edition of “Tafseer-e-Sagheer” was printed in Dec 1957. The final volume was published in 1979. Ahmadiyya sources claim that the first ever 5-volume english commentary was published in 1962 and an abridged version showed up in 1969, however, these are missing from the records.

In 1988, a new 5-volume commentary of the Holy Quran was published with Malik Ghulam Farid’s name on it. He had died in 1977, thus, this was dubious. Nevertheless, this became the official commentary that all Ahmadi’s in the west read. In 2018, another 5-volume commentary was published and can be found on
