Mirza Ghulam Jilani was getting pension money also. His father’s name is Mirza Tasadduq Jilani, he was the cousin of MGA’s grandfather (Mirza Gul Muhammad). He was an uncle of MGA, in fact, he is the 2nd-cousin of MGA’s father, and thus, MGA’s uncle (cha cha or thia, its unclear).

Per Ahmadiyya sources, he sued MGA’s father and appealed to the British government in 1865, this culminated in the famous 1865 settlement (See Dard). In the famous Punjab Chiefs (1865 edition), Mirza Ghulam Jilani is not listed by name, he is called as a brother of Mirza Ghulam Murtaza. After 1865, Mirza Ghulam Jilani began receiving pension payments from the British Government. The full amount of pension for Mirza Ghulam Murtaza and his brother-cousins was 700, it was 200 before then, in fact, when MGA went to go and pickup the pension money it was only 200. After 1865, MGA’s families cut of the pension went up to 350. Mirza Ghulam Jilani and the 2 widows of his brothers also got 280 rupees. Its unclear why the descendants of Mirza Tasadduq Jilani were getting pension. Maybe, they also helped the British during the mutiny of 1857. Mirza Ghulam Muhiyyuddin family and Mirza Ghulam Ghaus got the remaining 140 rupees it seems.

It’s unclear when he died, nevertheless, he was never heard from again, his descendants are unknown too.

Mirza Ghulam Murtaza died in 1876, after his death, Mirza Ghulam Ghaus and Mirza Ghulam Jilani sued the estate of Mirza Ghulam Murtaza and his son, Mirza Ghulam Qadir. This case seems to have last a few years. MGA’s Barahin-i-Ahmadiyya series came in this time frame. By 1883, Mirza Ghulam Qadir lost the case, it was a huge loss, he seems to have had a heart attack and died soon thereafter. By 1897, MGA admitted that his god would help in all of his worldly matters except those against his own family (collaterals), however, this was after Mirza Ghulam Qadir had already lost a huge portion of the estate. Per Dard, Mirza Ghulam Qadir didn’t give up the land, Mirza Sultan Ahmad (MGA’s eldest son) completed the transaction. Per Dard, Mirza Ghulam Murtaza owned all of the property and refused to share it with his 2nd cousins. He is also mentioned in the ROR of Aug-1939.


Mirza Ghulam Jilani and others cousins of Mirza Ghulam Murtaza sue. They win the case and begin to receive pension payments. The pension payments last until all of the brothers and cousins of Mirza Ghulam Murtaza died. However, the British government protects Mirza Ghulam Murtaza and don’t allow him to lose any land. In fact, the case of the Wall of 1900 was solved by this very court case, since Mirza Ghulam Murtaza claimed to own that land along with his brothers, and not his cousins.

Mirza Ghulam Murtaza dies. Mirza Ghulam Jilani and others cousins sue his estate for their share of the land.

After a long court trial. The British government orders Mirza Ghulam Qadir to sign away most likely half of Mirza Ghulam Murtaza’s land, he seems to die of a heart attack. Mirza Sultan Ahmad officially signs over the land.

[Arabic] O Ahmad, I shall accept all your supplications but not those in the matter of your collaterals.

In the case of the Wall, the settlement of 1865 is quoted and MGA seems to be win.

Mirza Ghulam Ahmad swears that he was nearly 60 years old in 1901
