Hamid Ali) is not mentioned, which is odd.

Via Tadhkirah

Via the first edition of Tadhkirah, Sheikh Zain-ul-‘Abidin tells the scholars at Qadian that his brother Barkat Ali was sick.

“””(78) Sheikh Zain-ul-‘Abidin narrates:

Once our elder brother Barkat ‘Ali fell seriously ill and he was reduced to a skeleton. He was brought here to (Qadian) and MGA treated him for two months and then… told my brother Hamid ‘Ali to take him back to his village, as his survival was unlikely. …A man was sent to the village to bring a palanquin for him. The man had barely reached Rajawah1320 when MGA
received the Revelation:

[Urdu] Barkat ‘Ali will regain his health.

MGA sent for Hamid ‘Ali immediately and told him to revoke the message [for the palanquin]….
The man who had been sent was called back and the next day Barkat ‘Ali’s fever subsided.”””
