In 1895, MGA and his team of writers decided to start a quarterly journal and named it “Nurul-Qur’an” (The Light of the Holy Qur’an). The first number was issued on and covered the time frame of June, July, and August of 1895. It was published in June of 1895 (see Dard) from The Diya’ul-Islam Press, Qadian. The second number was published in Dec-1895, it was discontinued altogether after this.
This book is barely 50 pages. It starts off with 4 pages of “Guidance”, this seems to be material for an entirely different idea, nevertheless, MGA and his team added it to this magazine as filler. Those 4 pages are followed by MGA’s arguments in the Barahin 1–4. 22 pages from Barahin-i-Ahmadiyya, which is extremely odd. It is followed with a long footnote wherein Reverend Pfander, John Davenport, Reverend Bosworth, Thakar Das and Bishop Taylor are mentioned, this footnote is 16 pages. Another footnote follows, 11 pages, Reverend Pfander in his book Mizan ul Haqq, and researcher Davenport in his book, and Padre James Cameron Lace are mentioned. It also contains the announcement of MGA’s book, “Minanur-Rahman” (5 pages), wherein MGA was claiming that Mecca was the oldest habitation on earth and that in the beginning men were all of one colour and spoke the same language, which was Arabic. “Minanur-Rahman” was never published in MGA’s life and was published posthumously in 1922. MGA also discusses the age of Aisha (ra), MGA argued that there was nothing wrong with girl getting married at 7-9 years old. He did however, doubt the authenticity of a specific hadith which listed Aisha (ra) as 9 years old at the time of marriage. In 1920, Mirza Bashir Ahmad (a son of MGA) wrote that Aisha was 7 years old when she married Muhammad (Saw). The 2nd Khalifa (Mirza Basheer ud Din Mahmud Ahmad) said that child marriage is OK in the 21st century and Aisha was 12.

“With reference to Hazrat ‘A’ishah’sra age on her wedding ceremony, it has been written that she was 9 years of age. Firstly, there is no evidence that the Holy Prophetsa stated this, nor had there been any revelation in regards to this. Nor is it substantiated from the Akbaar-e-Mutawaatirah, [Saying of the Prophet Muhammadsa reported by a large number of people] that she was certainly 9 years. It has only been taken from one narrator. The Arab people did not keep birth certificates because they were unlettered and in view of their circumstances, a difference of two or three years is normal. Even in our country, many illiterate people cannot tell the difference between a couple of years. Moreover, if hypothetically, we were even to accept this, after having calculated each and every day, that she was in fact 9 years old; even then no intelligent person could object – research doctors have come to agree upon that girls can attain maturity even at the age of 9; in fact, they can even have children at the age of 7. And doctors have proven this through major observations. Many hundreds have witnessed with their own eyes that in this country 9 year old girls have had children.””
