Initially, in the 1878-1882 era, via Barahin-i-Ahmadiyya Vol. 3 (see page 211 online english edition), MGA scoffed at the idea of God having sons and etc. In 1886, in Surma Chasma Arya, MGA claimed that Muhammad (saw) was a manifestation of God. In the 1886-1890 era, MGA was claiming that his Musleh Maud (promised son) arrival would as-if God had arrived. In 1891, after the main book of the Bahai’s was published (Kitab al aqdis), MGA seems to have copied and began using numerical values to validate his claims. MGA called himself the son of God in a weird way. MGA spoke of himself in some type of weird metaphoric trinity. It should also be noted that Mirza Ghulam Ahmad’s GOD prayed, ate, fasted and is just like humans. In 1892, MGA had his famous dream wherein he thought himself to be God (see at the 5:48 mark). It should also be noted that in Bahaism, Jihad was also banned, MGA seems to have copied. MGA also used the argument from Bahaism about the pen being more mighty than the sword.
In 1904, the Al-Hakam claimed that Bahaulah claimed to be the Messiah. The Al-Hakam presented this to their team, however, they didn’t answer question. This was in terms of prophets living more than 23 years. The questioner asked the editors as to why Bahaullah lived so long after his claim. Ahmadi editors claim that someone has to keep their claims active for 23 years for it to be valid. In Lecture Lahore, MGA and his team mentioned how while going through the 27th August, 1904, edition of Paisa Akhbar, I learned that a gentleman named Hakim Mirza Mahmood Ahmad Irani, who is a follower of someone claiming to be the Messiah, is presently in Lahore and desires to have a Mubahala [prayer-duel] with me. It should also be noted that Mirza Ghulam Ahmad’s GOD prayed, ate, fasted and is just like humans. #ahmadis even argued that the 23 year prophethood challenge doesn’t apply to Bahaullah because he claimed godhood (1904).
In the 1907 era (See Haqiqatul Wahy), MGA was claiming that his GOD was human and ate, fasted and etc. MGA took it a step further and claimed to receive a revelation wherein his God called him his son. This could also be a rip-off of Bahaism. In the same book (Haqiqatul Wahy) also claimed to be the Brahman Avatar in a weird revelation. MGA and his team of writers mentioned how this was all metaphorical, just like MGA’s prophethood. Furthermore, it should be noted that MGA called himself the baruz of God (naozobillah), just like he had claimed to be the baruz (second manifestation) of Muhammad (saw) (astagfarullah). MGA also claimed to have been given the highest throne of them all. This was all in the era of 1906-1907.
The ROR (english)(1923–1927) also discussed the Bahai’s (see the refs in the below). In the ROR of Feb-1925, the Ahmadiyya Movement was explained by Britishers as comparable to Bahaism.
Finally, in the 1990’s a bunch of Ahmadi’s left Ahmadiyya and became Bahai. Also in the 90’s, Mirza Tahir Ahmad said that the Jews created the Bahai’s. We have found a video of Mirza Tahir Ahmad wherein he claims that the Bahai’s were invented by the Jews. Mirza Tahir Ahmad claims to have evidence too. This is a major conspiracy theory. When we say the same about Ahmadiyya, they cry persecution.

[Announcement of February 20, 1886, Majmu‘ah Ishtiharat, vol. 1, pp. 102–103].
“”””[Urdu] I confer upon you a Sign of My mercy according to what you begged of me. So I have
heard your entreaties and have honoured your prayers with My acceptance through My mercy
and made your journey (i.e. the journey to Hoshiarpur and Ludhiana) a source of blessings for you. Therefore, a Sign of power, mercy, nearness is bestowed on you, a Sign of grace and beneficence is awarded to you and you are granted the key of success and victory. Peace on you, O victorious one. Thus did God speak so that those who desire life may be rescued from the grip of death and those who are buried in the graves may come out of them and so that the superiority of Islam and the dignity of God’s Word may become manifest unto the people and so that truth may arrive with all its blessings and falsehood may flee with all its ills, and so that people may understand that I am the Lord of Power, I do whatever I will, and so that they may believe that I am with you, and so that those who do not believe in God and deny and reject His
religion and His Book and His Holy Messenger Muhammad, the Chosen One (sa) may be confronted with a clear Sign and the way of the guilty ones may become manifest. Rejoice, therefore, that a handsome and pure boy will be bestowed on you; you will receive an unblemished youth who will be of your seed and will be of your progeny. A handsome and pure boy is coming as your guest. His name is Emmanuel and also Bashir. He has been invested with a spirit of holiness, and he is free from all impurity. He is the light of Allah. Blessed is he who comes from heaven. He will be accompanied by grace which shall arrive with him. He will be characterised with grandeur, greatness and wealth. He will come into the world and will
heal many of their disorders through his Messianic qualities and through the blessings of the spirit of holiness. He is the Word of Allah for Allah’s mercy and honour have equipped him with the Word of Majesty. He will be extremely intelligent and perceptive and will be meek of heart and will be filled with secular and spiritual knowledge. He will convert three into four (of this the meaning is not clear). It is Monday a blessed Monday. [Persian] [Son, delight of the heart, high ranking, noble.] [Arabic] [A manifestation of the First and the Last, a manifestation of the True and the High; as if Allah has descended from heaven.] [Urdu] His advent will be greatly blessed and will be a source of manifestation of Divine Majesty. Behold a light comes, anointed by God with the perfume of His pleasure. We shall pour Our Spirit into him and he will be sheltered under the shadow of God. He will grow rapidly in stature and will be the means of procuring the release of those held in bondage. His fame will spread to the ends of the earth and peoples will be blessed through him. He will then be raised to his spiritual station in heaven. [Arabic] [This is a matter decreed.] [Urdu] Your house will be filled with blessings and I shall perfect My favours unto you and you will have a large progeny from blessed women, some of whom you will find hereafter, and I will cause a great increase in your progeny and will bless it; but some of them will die in early age and your progeny will spread greatly in different lands. Every branch of your
collaterals will be cut off and will come to an end soon through childlessness. If they do not
repent, God will send chastisement after chastisement upon them, until they are completely wiped out. Their houses will be filled with widows and God’s wrath will descend upon their walls. But if they turn to God, He will turn to them in mercy. God will spread your blessings about and will revive a ruined house through you and will fill a fearful house with blessings. Your progeny will not be cut off and will flourish till the end of days. God will maintain your name with honour till the day when the world comes to an end and will convey your message to the ends of the earth. I shall exalt you and shall call you to Myself but your name will never be erased from the face of the earth. It will so happen that all those who seek to humiliate you, and are determined to cause you to fail and wish to ruin you will themselves be frustrated and will die in failure and frustration. But God will grant you complete success and will grant you all that you desire. I will cause an increase of your true and sincere friends and shall bless their lives and their properties and they will grow in number and they will prevail over the other Muslims—who are jealous of you and are hostile to you—till the Day of Judgment. God will not forget your supporters and will not lose sight of them and they will have their reward according to the degree of their devotion. You are to me as the prophets of Bani Isra’il [Israelites] (that is: You resemble them as a reflection). You are to Me as My Unity. You are of Me and I am of you. The time is approaching, indeed it is near, when God will put your love in the hearts of kings and nobles till they will seek blessings from your garments. O you who deny and who oppose the truth, if you are in doubt concerning My servant, if you deny the grace and bounty that I have bestowed upon My servant, then produce some true Sign concerning yourselves like this Sign of mercy, if you are truthful. If you are unable to produce it, and be sure you will never be able to produce it, then be mindful of the Fire which has been prepared for the disobedient, the liars and the transgressors. (The end)

“God Almighty has conveyed to me through a sure and certain prophecy that out of my progeny there will be one who will resemble Jesus in many respects. He will descend from heaven and will straighten out the way of the dwellers upon earth. He will set free those who are held in bondage and deliver those who are imprisoned in the chains of doubt. [Revelation in Persian] Son, delight of the heart, high ranking, noble [Revelation in Arabic] A manifestation of the True and the High as if Allah had descended from heaven”
[Izala-e-Auham, p. 185, Ruhani Khaza’in, vol. 3, pp. 189–190](via Tadhkirah).
“””A few days ago I was meditating whether a certain hadith:
“”The Signs will appear after two centuries.””
means that the Promised Messiah would appear towards the end of the thirteenth century of the Hijrah and whether this humble one is included within the meaning of that hadith. Then my attention was, in a vision, directed to the value of the letters of the name set out below as indicating that the Messiah would appear at the close of the thirteenth century. and this had been determined in advance by divine decree. The name is:
[Urdu] Ghulam Ahmad Qadiani.
The value of the letters comprised in this name is exactly 1300. In this village of Qadian there is no other person bearing the name Ghulam Ahmad. Indeed, it has been conveyed to me that there is no one else in the whole world who bears the name Ghulam Ahmad Qadiani. It has been the way of Allah with me that He, hallowed be His name, conveys some mysteries to me which are comprised in the value of the alphabet.
[Izala-e-Auham, p. 186, Ruhani Khaza’in, vol. 3, p. 190]
(A) On one occasion, I was thinking of the time of the creation of Adam and my attention was directed towards the value of the letters of surah al-‘Asr as comprising the date.
(B) God Almighty has disclosed to me through a vision that on the basis of the value of the letters comprised in surah al-‘Asr, the time from the birth of Adam to the blessed period of the Holy Prophet, may peace and blessings of Allah be upon him—that is, including all 23 years of his prophethood—amounts to a total period of 4739 lunar years, that is to say from the beginning of human civilization [Adam] to the death of the Holy Prophet, may peace and blessings of Allah be upon him.

“The Messiah, son of Mary, his arrival, in the last era, has a prophecy in the Quran-e-Shareef. From the Quran-e-Shareef, the Messiah’s will emerge after 1400 years (it is proven). Many scholar’s have given the same impression and believed it.”
“Maseeh ibn Maryam kee akhree zamana mai anay kee Quran-ay Shareef mai paishgoi mujood hai. Quran-ay Shareef mai jo Maseeh ke nikal ne kee 1400 baras taak mudat tahrai hai. Bhot say auliya be apne mokar shafat kee ruh say is mudaat ko mantay hai.”
Some additional commentary
In this quotation, MGA quoted 23:18 (23:19 in the Ahmadi Quran), the second half of it. “””and surely it is We Who determine its taking away””, MGA claimed that this verse equals 1274. In some type of weird mathematical method. However, Ahmadi scholars after MGA never connected 23:18 (23:19 in the Ahmadi Quran) to the return of the Messiah in the 14th century. He goes on to quote 61:9, and claims that this verse related to himself, the Messiah, son of Mary, of the time.
_____________________________________________________________________________________________Quote from the Bab
The Báb (https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/B%C3%A1b) used the muqaṭṭaʿāt in his Qayyúmu’l-Asmáʼ (https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Selections_from_the_Writings_of_the_B%C3%A1b#Qayy.C3.BAmu.27l-Asm.C3.A1.27). He writes in an early commentary and in his Dalá’il-i-Sab’ih (https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/B%C3%A1b#M.C3.A1h-K.C3.BA.2C_late_summer_1847_.E2.80.93_May_1848) (Seven Proofs) about a hadith (https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hadith) from Muhammad al-Baqir (https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Muhammad_al-Baqir), the fifth Shiʻi Imam (https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Imamah_(Shia)), where it is stated that the first seven surat’s muqaṭṭaʿāt have a numerical value of 1267, from which the year 1844 (the year of the Báb’s declaration) can be derived.
A’ina Kamalat i Islam p. 564
‘I saw in one of my visions that I am God myself and believed that I am the same. His Godhead penetrated and infused in me. My personal edifice collapsed and that of God appeared distinctly and divinity subdued me completely.’ He further writes ‘and in this state, I submitted that we need a new system and a new sky. So, first of all, I vaguely created the earth and the sky but there was no order and no system therein. Then according to the will of God, I put them in proper order and appropriate arrangements and I saw that I was capable of creating things. Then I originated the sky of the earth and said [sic]. Then I asserted that now We should beget man with the essence of clay. Then the state of contemplative vision converted into inspiration and I started muttering “These are the inspirations I am enlightened with by God Almighty.”
1898, Kitab ul Barriya
These are the pages where he quotes his vision of creating the universe as god and then argues for his divinity in Kitab al Bariyya where MGA claimed to be God and argued for his and the prophet Muhammad’s divinity from the Quran and MGA’s vision. He challenges the Christian missionaries to bring forth a statement of Jesus, where he claimed divinity like MGA.
He even quotes the pages in Aina Kamalat e Islam close to the Muhammadi Begum rant where he first quoted the vision of being God. Here are the Kitab al Bariyya scans:
Akhbar Al-Hakam, Qadian, 24th October 1904, pg. 4
This is actually a quote from a question posed to al-Hakam. The Al-Hakam presented this to their team, however, they didn’t answer question. This was in terms of prophets living more than 23 years. The questioner asked the editors as to why Bahaullah lived so long after his claim. Ahmadi editors claim that someone has to keep their claims active for 23 years for it to be valid.
“Bahá’u’lláh, who claimed to be Messiah (مسیح) in 1269 A.H. remained alive till 1309 A.H.”
The Khalifa had just came back from his tour of the world (to London and back). His travel dates were July 12th, 1924 to November 24th, 1924 (see Tarikh e Ahmadiyya)(See also ROR of 2008). Nevertheless, the Jalsa was held on the 26th-28th. Ahmadiyya sources claim that the 2nd Khalifa gave a 4 hour speech on Bahaism (which special focus on his claim to divinity) on the first day of the 1924 Jalsa.
Also, see the ROR of July-1924 to see additional critcisms of Bahai’s. See the May-1924 edition also.
In the June-1925 edition of the ROR, Bahaism is discussed. See also the January-1925 edition of the ROR. See the ROR of Feb-1925 also..see here–1925 feb.
In the May-1926 edition of the ROR, Bahaism was examined.
Bahaism and the pen
Bahá’u’lláh, Epistle to the Son of the Wolf, accessed 7 June 2018, http://www.bahai.org/library/authoritative-texts/bahaullah/epistle-son-wolf/#f=f2-35
1852 he was told by God about the Jihad of pen and the prophet SAW said to stop physical jihad.
In order to better understand the vital connection between Bahá’u’lláh’s revelation and His concern with peace, let us examine that experience of revelation in the Tehran dungeon in 1852 which marks the birth of the Bahá’í Faith. Bahá’u’lláh describes this experience:
One night, in a dream, these exalted words were heard on every side: Verily, We shall render Thee victorious by Thyself and by Thy Pen. Grieve Thou not for that which hath befallen Thee, neither be Thou afraid, for Thou art in safety. Erelong will God raise up the treasures of the earth—men who will aid Thee through Thyself and through Thy Name, wherewith God hath revived the hearts of such as have recognized Him.
He even banned Jihad before mga.
Bahaullah denies being GOD
186O King of the Earth! Hearken unto the call of this Vassal: Verily, I am a Servant Who hath believed in God and in His signs, and have sacrificed Myself in His path. Unto this bear witness the woes which now beset Me, woes the like of which no man hath ever before sustained. My Lord, the All-Knowing, testifieth to the truth of My words. I have summoned the people unto none save God, thy Lord and the Lord of the worlds, and have endured for love of Him such afflictions as the eye of creation hath never beheld. To this testify those whom the veils of human fancy have not deterred from turning unto the Most Sublime Vision, and, beyond them, He with Whom is the knowledge of all things in the preserved Tablet.

192O King! I was but a man like others, asleep upon My couch, when lo, the breezes of the All-Glorious were wafted over Me, and taught Me the knowledge of all that hath been. This thing is not from Me, but from One Who is Almighty and All-Knowing. And He bade Me lift up My voice between earth and heaven, and for this there befell Me what hath caused the tears of every man of understanding to flow. The learning current amongst men I studied not; their schools I entered not. Ask of the city wherein I dwelt, that thou mayest be well assured that I am not of them who speak falsely. This is but a leaf which the winds of the will of thy Lord, the Almighty, the All-Praised, have stirred. Can it be still when the tempestuous winds are blowing? Nay, by Him Who is the Lord of all Names and Attributes! They move it as they list. The evanescent is as nothing before Him Who is the Ever-Abiding. His all-compelling summons hath reached Me, and caused Me to speak His praise amidst all people. I was indeed as one dead when His behest was uttered. The hand of the will of thy Lord, the Compassionate, the Merciful, transformed Me. Can anyone speak forth of his own accord that for which all men, both high and low, will protest against him? Nay, by Him Who taught the Pen the eternal mysteries, save him whom the grace of the Almighty, the All-Powerful, hath strengthened.

101Certain ones among you have said: “He it is Who hath laid claim to be God.” By God! This is a gross calumny. I am but a servant of God Who hath believed in Him and in His signs, and in His Prophets and in His angels. My tongue, and My heart, and My inner and My outer being testify that there is no God but Him, that all others have been created by His behest, and been fashioned through the operation of His Will. There is none other God but Him, the Creator, the Raiser from the dead, the Quickener, the Slayer. I am He that telleth abroad the favours with which God hath, through His bounty, favoured Me. If this be My transgression, then I am truly the first of the transgressors. I and My kindred are at your mercy. Do ye as ye please, and be not of them that hesitate, that I might return to God My Lord, and reach the place where I can no longer behold your faces. This, indeed, is My dearest wish, My most ardent desire. Of My state God is, verily, sufficiently informed, observant.

197And amongst the people are those who claim that He hath disbelieved in God—yet every member of My body testifieth that there is none other God but Him; that those Whom He hath raised up in truth and sent forth with His guidance are the Manifestations of His most excellent names, the Revealers of His most exalted attributes, and the Repositories of His Revelation in the kingdom of creation; that through them the Proof of God hath been perfected unto all else but Him, the standard of Divine Unity hath been raised, and the sign of sanctity hath been made manifest; and that through them every soul hath found a path unto the Lord of the Throne on high. We testify that there is none other God but Him, that from everlasting He was alone with none else besides Him, and that He shall be unto everlasting what He hath ever been. Too high is the All-Merciful for the hearts of those who have recognized Him to apprehend His true nature, or for the minds of men to hope to fathom His essence. He verily is exalted above the understanding of anyone besides Himself, and sanctified beyond the comprehension of all else save Him. From all eternity He hath been independent of the entire creation.
