Mirza Ghulam Ahmad claimed that Noorudin and Muhammad Ahsan Amrohi were the 2 angels that he descended with

Intro
MGA and his team of writers were always perplexed about a hadith report from Sahih-Muslim and an identical report from Ibn Majah. In both of these hadith, it was told by Muhammad (saw) that when Esa (as) would physically descend from heaven, he would physically have 2 angels on his side. In 1914, Kwaja Kamaluddin tells us (See The Causes of Internal Dissensions in the Ahmadiyya Movement, By Khwaja Kamaluddin, 1914) that these 2 angels were Noorudin and Syed Muhammad Ahsan Amrohi. MGA also said it in one of his books, however, we can’t find that at the moment.

In Khwaja’s book, he didn’t talk about the hadith specifically, however, we know that this is the famous hadith from Muslim and Ibn Majah (when they refer to the 2 angels).

Who is Syed Maulvi Muhammad Ahsan of Amroha, who worked as an Imam in Bhopal uptil 1891?

Intro
Maulvi Muhammad Ahsan Amrohi was initially working as a Mullah in the state of Bhopal, he worked exclusively for Nawab Siddiq Hasan Khan, who was the husband of the Queen of Bhopal, it seems that MGA sent him his Braheen-e-Ahmadiyya in 1880 or 1882, I am not sure which volume, however, Nawab Siddiq Hasan Khan tore up the book and sent it back to MGA in that condition. This could have been 1885 also. In 1890, Nawab Siddique Hassan Khan of Bhopal died and it seems that Syed Maulvi Muhammad Ahsan Amrohi was jobless. In 1891, he helped MGA with secret information about the debate with Maulvi Muhammad Bashir Bhopali.  After Noorudin died (1914), he left Ahmadiyya and it is unclear what religion he joined, however, it seems like he became a Lahori-Ahmadi. Muhammad Ismail Ghulam Kibria, Ahmad Hasan and Sayyid Muhammad Ya‘qub were his sons, Nawab Muhammad Ali KhAshab-e-Sidq-o-SafaAshab-e-Sidq-o-Safauneration for Molvi Muhammad Ahsan. In a letter to Nawab, MGAQ writes “whatever remuneration (payment) you have fixed for Molvi Ahsan, plz send a sum of 20 Annas to him to Qadian and remaining amount may be sent to his son Syed Muhammad Ismail to Shah Ali Sarai Amroha. As per Ashab-e-Sidq-o-Safa, which was written by Nasrullah Khan Nasir and Asim Jamali, published by Ziaul Islam Press Rabwah in 2007 and 2011. Ahsan Amrohi died in 1926.
_____________________________________________________________________________________________1870–1890

He was a member of the Majlis-i-Ulema of Nawab Siddique Hassan Khan of Bhopal State in India.
_____________________________________________________________________________________________1891, October

Syed Maulvi Muhammad Ahsan of Amroha was still living in Bhopal.  He wrote letters to MGA and helped MGA with his debate with Maulvi Muhammad Bashir Bhopali.
_____________________________________________________________________________________________1891, December 27-29

Amrohi was at the first Jalsa Salana in 1891, he was seated on the stage, right next to MGA
See page 417—
_____________________________________________________________________________________________
1892
Maulvi Muhammad Ahsan Amrohi lived exclusively in MGA’s house (1892)

Just like all the people in the inner circle of MGA, he lived exclusively with MGA and led prayers in the Masjid Mubarak, Maulvi Abdul Kareem and Noorudin also led the prayers in this tiny mosque which was the personal office of MGA(see page 430).  MGA barely went into his own house and never taught his children anything about Islam.  It is unclear whether or not Maulvi Muhammad Ahsan Amrohi’s children or wife also lived with him in Qadian, however, it seems unlikely.

In 1892, Maulvi Muhammad Ahsan Amrohi became a paid Mullah of MGA and took the lead in several debates
Ahmadiyya sources tell us Amrohi was the first paid mullah of Ahmadiyya (See Dard), starting in late 1892, he then began touring the countryside and helping MGA with debates.  He also began editing MGA’s ilhams and other articles and books.
_____________________________________________________________________________________________1900–Summer

He disagrees with MGA’s claim of prophethood.
_____________________________________________________________________________________________1901–December

He defends MGA’s announcement of prophethood (Eik Ghalti Ka Izala), however, he only defends the part about MGA not being an independent prophet.
_____________________________________________________________________________________________1902
He wrote: 

Al-Hakam of 24 May 1902, Maulana replied in these words:

“Mujaddad, Muhaddath, and Nabi, all these words (pertaining to the Promised Messiah) are
synonymous, therefore elucidation in any of the two ways is correct and both these elucidations are found in the Book and the Sunnah-e-Sahiha. This clearly means that the Promised Messiah, according to the terminology of the Shari‘ah, is a Muhaddath and only in the dictionary meaning can he be called a Nabi.
_______________________________________________________________________________________________
1903
He wrote: 

Al-Hakam of 21 October and 10 November 1903: 

“In the hadith, ‘Lam yabqa min an nabuwat-e-illal mubashsharat’ (Nothing is left of
prophethood except mubashsharat [good tidings]). Exception is continual or uninterrupted and al in al-mubashsharat is beneficial for distinction. Thus, in brief, the meanings of the hadith are that nabuwat has two parts: one pertains to commandments, whether those about fariaz o wajbat (duties and obligations), or about halal and haram (permitted and unpermitted), and the other part, which are mubashsharat (good tidings), under which all mubashsharat (good tidings), whether those pertaining to anzarak (warnings) or bashsharat (good news) are included. From these two parts, the part or type which relates to mubashsharat continues till the Day of Judgement. Evidently, when out of the two parts of nabuwat (prophethood) one part is continuous, therefore nabuwat-e-juzvi (partial prophethood) continues. Yes, nabuwat-e-kulli (complete prophethood) has been terminated.” (See the Hope Bulletin, a Lahori-Ahmadi newspaper, retrieved on 12-26-2019).

Zikre Habib page No. 158-159. By Mufti Sadiq Qadiani
1908

Qadiani Mufti Sadiq writes that once,during the last years of Hazrat Masih Moud (MGAQ), Molana Muhammad Ali Lahori, as Secretary (Administration), Sadar Majlis Anjuman, presented a resolution that Molvi Ahsan Amrohi may be removed from the post of Officer Maqbara Bahishti, and he may get the salary of Khateeb only. Both this humble self and Molvi Ahsan Amrohi were present in the meeting. The resolution was presented and was passed quietly without any debate. Then the Anjuman moved to other resolutions. After a few minutes Molvi Muhammad Ahsan Amrohi expressed his severe displeasure and walked away from the meeting. Next day when the copy of passed resolution was received to him, he refused to hand over the charge of the post. He made a hue and cry in the ground and lodged a complaint with Hazrat Sahib (MGAQ). Hazrat Sahib wrote to Molana Muhammad Ali Lahori that Molvi Ahsan Amrohi may not be removed from this post. Upon receiving this order, Molana Muhammad Ali showed his displeasure. Molana Muhammad Ali showed this order of Hazrat sb to me and said “I would leave this work and shall proceed on leave now, because it is no use to work if our passed resolutions are not honoured.”

May 26th, 1908, Nooruddin nominates Amrohi as a possible choice for Khalifa
As we all know, Amrohi was highly praised in Ahmadiyya, this is another example, further, by 1909, almost all of MGA’s closest team of writers were forced to move out of MGA’ house, it is unclear if Amrohi also had to move out, however, by 1915, he was living in his ancestoral town of Amroha.
_____________________________________________________________________________________________1911–Sep

He comments on Mahmud Ahmad’s famous essay on Takfir from April (See “Truth about the Split”).  “In my opinion, in the discussion on the subjects of Kufr and kafir, you have fully discharged your duty of conveying the message. Henceforth, there is no more need for you to devote your attention to this subject. As the Holy Quran says, ‘They can never do you any harm so long as you are yourself rightly guided’.”
______________________________________________________________________________________________1913–October

He writes: “”Prophethood among the Followers of Muhammad”” by Maulana Sayyid Muhammad Ahsan of Amroha, Oct-1913, in Tashhizul Azhan.  
_____________________________________________________________________________________________
1914
When Nooruddin died (1914), Amrohi was the first to nominate Mirza Basheer-uddin Mahmud Ahmad for the Khilafat

However, just 2 years (1916) later he seems to have been bought out by the Lahori-Ahmadis, he switched sides even after reviewing Mirza Basheer-uddin’s books of 1915, which forcefully promoted the prophethood of MGA. Mirza Basheer-uddin Mahmud Ahmad covered this topic extensively here (see page 195) and many others…

1914, April to December
He seems to go missing.
_____________________________________________________________________________________________1915, January

His son, Sayyid Muhammad Ya‘qub, reads “Qaul Al_Fasl” to his father (see Truth About the Split) and he approves of the prophethood of MGA.

1915–Summer
Mirza Bashiruddin Mahmud Ahmad sent a deputation of ‘ulamas to Maulana Amrohi. Maulana Abdul Rahman Misri was one of the members of this deputation. He wrote that one day in a one-on-one discussion with Maulana Amrohi, he asked him when he paid attention to the
beliefs of the Lahore Jama‘at. Maulana in reply mentioned the letter of Qazi Akmal which diverted his attention to research the beliefs of both sections, and that when he found out that Mirza Bashiruddin Mahmud Ahmad was not willingly prepared to make amends in his beliefs which ran contrary to the MGA’s then he published a declaration of the renunciation of the bai’at which he had taken at the hands of Mirza Bashiruddin Mahmud Ahmad, and thus he joined the fold of the Ahmadiyya Anjuman Ishaat-e-Islam, Lahore. Thereafter he also announced the dismissal of Mirza Bashiruddin Mahmud Ahmad from the Khilafat (See the Hope Bulletin, a Lahori-Ahmadi newspaper, retrieved on 12-26-2019).  

1915, roughly December
He wrote “Mubahsa-e-Rampur”, Qazi Akmal (one of the Khalifa’s secretaries, he was also the editor of Tashizazul Adhan)wrote a letter to him saying that Maulana, in his book, had supported the views of Maulana Muhammad Ali. It came as a big surprise to him as what he had written in the book was a presentation of the beliefs of the Promised Messiah.
_____________________________________________________________________________________________1916–April–December

The grandfather of the Khalifa, Mir Nasir Nawab goes around British-India and defames Syed Muhammad Ahsan Amrohi. Insiders tell the world that these two had a business deal in place, Amrohi would help Mirza Basheer ud Din Mahmud Ahmad become Khalifa, and Mir Nasir Nawab would forgive his debt. It seems that Mir Nasir Nawab had let the Amrohi borrow lots of money in terms of a wedding, the Amrohi did not have the means to pay back the loan, he thought he could pay it back via getting the Khilafat for Mahmud Ahmad, he was wrong.

1916–December
He seems to have written a letter wherein he denounced the Khilafat of Mirza Basheer ud Din Mahmud Ahmad. We are unsure where it was published, however it as published as an introduction to a book by Muhammad Ali entitled, “Two Sections of the Ahmadiyya Movement” which seems to have been published in 1966.  See here–http://www.aaiil.org/text/books/mali/twosectionsahmadiyyamovement/twosectionsahmadiyyamovement.pdf
_____________________________________________________________________________________________1917

He wrote two books, “Khatam-an-Nabiyin” and “Ismohoo Ahmad”, in which he explained that the beliefs of the Promised Messiah were not contradictory to the belief of Khatam-an-Nabiyeen in any way and the prophesy of Ismohoo Ahmad in the Qur’an pertains to the Holy Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him. He also wrote “Al-Qaul-Al-Mummajjid”.
_____________________________________________________________________________________________He died in 1926

As per Ashab-e-Sidq-o-Safa, he died in 1926. He was 80+.

Shams-i-Bazigha by Mirza Ghulam Ahmad and Muhammad Ahsan Amrohi

Intro
The name means ‘Rising Sun’. It is a book by Muhammad Ahsan Amrohi, one of the assistants of Mirza Ghulam Ahmad. It was directed at Mehr Ali Shah, and according to the latter, was full of errors. This book seems to be totally missing from all the records.

Maulvi Sher Ali told the world that Mirza Ghulam Ahmad would send his Arabic writings to Noorudin and Ahsan Amrohi for editing

Intro
MGA hired many people to help him. Noorudin was the most famous, as was Maulvi Syed Muhammad Ahsan Amrohi. In the below, we have proven that MGA always sent his manuscripts for proof-reading to his employee’s. We have also posted the quote from Seeratul Mahdi wherein MGA claimed that all of his Arabic books/writings are a type of revelation, since they were written with the power of Allah. MGA has said this about all of his books, whether arabic or not.

“”Prophethood among the Followers of Muhammad”” by Maulana Sayyid Muhammad Ahsan of Amroha, Oct-1913, in Tashhizul Azhan

Intro
The life of Maulana Sayyid Muhammad Ahsan of Amroha is an interesting case study. He left Ahmadiyya in roughly 1915, and with his entire family, it is unclear who his wife was and his children. He wrote an article in the Tashhizul Azhan of Oct-1913(as quoted by Mahmud Ahmad in 1924 and Muhammad Ali before him) in which he showed that the only prophethood which could be granted to Muslims was Nubuwwti Juzwi or partial prophethood. This contradicts the view of the Qadiani jamaat about the prophethood of MGA. In fact, Amrohi famously opposed the prophethood claim of MGA in 1901.

The name of the book is Sirr-ush-Shahadatain. [One wonders if this is available somewhere.]
  2. There is an announcement by a printer that Maulana Nur-ud-Din has given him his translation of the Quran to print and publish, and he has now published the first Part. [Such a translation never appears to have been heard of again.]
  3. Hazrat Mirza sahib’s book Haqiqat-ul-Wahy had just been published on 15th May.http://aaiil.org/urdu/books/others/muhammadahsanamrohi/sirrushshahada

Maulvi Muhammad Ahsan Amrohi lived exclusively in MGA’s house

Intro
Maulvi Muhammad Ahsan Amrohi was initially working as a Mullah in the state of Bhopal, he worked exclusively for Nawab Siddiq Hasan Khan, who was the husband of the Queen of Bhopal, it seems that MGA sent him his Braheen-e-Ahmadiyya, I am not sure which volume, however, Nawab Siddiq Hasan Khan tore up the book and sent it back to MGA in that condition.

Ahsan Amrohi was also considered as one of the angels that the Messiah descended with. He was a member of the Ahl-e-Hadith sect and was working in Bhopal, India as an imam. In 1878, the Ahl-e-Hadith founder (Nawab Siddiq Hasan Khan)and his donated heavily to MGA and his Barahin-i-Ahmadiyya series, which promised 500 arguments in support of Islam. By 1891, he had moved to Qadian for employment, he lived exclusively with MGA in his mansion. By 1907, MGA was claiming that he knew all along that Ahsan Amrohi would move to Qadian. When MGA died, he was in Lahore and witnessed the whole scene. By 1914, he had initially sided with the Qadiani-Ahmadi’s. However, by 1915, he had switched sides and had become a Lahori-Ahmadi. He was dead by 1919, his age was unknown. We are guessing 80+.

Life sketch of Maulvi Syed Muhammad Ahsan Amrohi

Taken from: http://www.aaiil.org/text/articles/hope/2007/hope200712_lifesketchsyedmuhammadahsanamrohi.pdf

(Part I of a two-part article.)

[English translation by Choudry Masud Akthar, Secretary, AAIIL, Hayward, California of Yaad-eRuftagaan

(Biographies of Prominent Members of the Lahore Ahmadiyya Movement), Volume 1.]

Maulana Syed Muhammad Ahsan Amrohi was one of the stalwarts and leading ‘Ulama of the Ahmadiyya Movement. He was one of the favoured persons who stood in the closest circle of the supporters and followers of the Promised Messiah. During his stay in Qadian, which used to be for quite long periods, he used to be the khateeb and imam of Masjid-i-Mubarak, where the Promised Messiah used to offer his Friday prayers behind him. His khutbahs were like an ocean of Qur’anic subtleties which quenched the spiritual thirst of hundreds of those who offered their Friday prayers in that masjid. His khutbahs were published in the Ahmadiyya Movement’s newspapers and are available in the Jama‘at’s library for all those who would like to benefit from the spiritual and intellectual power of his sermons.

Before joining the Ahmadiyya Movement, Maulana Amrohi was an elect member of the Majlis-i-Ulema of Nawab Siddique Hassan Khan of Bhopal State in India. Nawab Siddique Hassan Khan had a deep  – 5 – interest in religious knowledge and had gathered around him a majlis from amongst the eminent ‘Ulama of the time from the Indian Sub-continent by employing them on high salaries. These ‘Ulama used to provide him with research material from which he wrote and published some outstanding books on Hadith and the teachings of the Qur’an. Maulana Amrohi was one of these research scholars and was held in high esteem for his learning. The Qur’anic verse, “Allah grants knowledge to whom He likes from amongst His slaves,” applies perfectly in the case of Maulana Mohammad Ahsan Amrohi. Those who had the good fortune of seeing him or keeping company with him attest that he was one of the ‘Ulama-iRabbani
whose hearts were full of the light of iman. Whatever deductions he made from the Qur’an and
the Hadith was so outstanding that no opponent could ever dispute his arguments. He had not only a deep insight into the teachings of the Qur’an and Hadith but was also an accomplished scholar in Sarf, Nahve, Fasalat, Balaghat, Mantiq and Philosophy.

Sign of the truth of the Promised Messiah
When in 1891 Hadhrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad claimed to be the Promised Messiah, prophesies about whose advent were to be found in the Hadith, the ‘Ulama of India became his sworn enemies and issued a fatwa of kufr against him. The Promised Messiah received an ilham in the form of Persian verse, which reads:

“””Az Pae aan Muhammad AhsanRa- Tariq-i-Roozgar mei Benaam””

“”(For that purpose I see Muhammad Ahsan giving up his worldly subsistence or worldly desires)””

This ilham of the Promised Messiah proved true when, soon after, Maulana Syed Muhammad Ahsan Amrohi quit his high-paying job with Nawab Siddique Hassan Khan and joined the Ahmadiyya Movement and settled down at Qadian. This further shows that Maulana Ahsan Amrohi was held in great honour in Nawab Siddique Hassan’s Majlis-e-‘Ulama but that was also held in great honour in the sight of Allah that He chose him for this service of the Promised Messiah and filled his heart with the light which enabled him to recognize the Truth of the claims of the Promised Messiah. At a time when joining the Ahmadiyya Movement meant not only being subjected to the worst type of ostracization but also facing all types of hardships, giving up one’s means of income and subsistence, especially when there were no other apparent means in sight of earning a livelihood, was not a mean sacrifice. But without any
care for all these considerations Maulana Syed M. Ahsan Amrohi gave up quite a richly remunerated position and, acting on the Divine Command of “Kunu Ma as Sadiqeen” [Be with the truthful (or righteous ones)] he became the supporter and follower of the one who was raised by Allah as the Promised Messiah and Mujaddad of the 14th Century. He chose to exemplify preferring deen over one’s worldly gains and, giving up a life full of comforts and luxury, he preferred to become a dervish and pass his life in the state of derveshi.

In recognition of the eminence in learning, righteousness and spiritual qualities of Maulana Muhammad Ahsan Amrohi, the Promised Messiah declared him to be one of those angels about whom it is prophesied in the Hadith that the Messiah will appear resting his hands on the shoulders of two angels. The proof of this being that Maulana became a great support for the mission of the Promised Messiah in that he wrote such incontrovertible answers to the objections raised by the opponents of the Promised Messiah that they were silenced.

The Promised Messiah used to ask Maulana M Ahsan to write answers to these objections and his answers served to silence them. He ceaselessly wielded his pen in defense of the Promised Messiah by writing books and publishing replies in the newspapers and magazines of the Movement, thus passing his whole life in this sacred jihad. He wrote about 30 books which contain so much knowledge on the truth of Ahmadiyyat that seekers after truth can benefit from these in any era. Thus Maulana M Ahsan Amrohi shall ever remain a sign of the truthfulness of the Promised Messiah and his mission.

In Al-Wassiyat (The Will) the Promised Messiah has laid down that at least two persons who are scholars of the Deen (i.e. having deep insight in the teachings of the Qur’an and Sunnah and Hadith) should always be included in the Majlis-e-Motamadeen, the body which was authorized to manage and administer the affairs of the Ahmadiyya Anjuman which was declared by him to be his successor. The other condition for being a member of the Majlis-i-Motamadeen laid down by him was that only righteous persons who in right earnest prefer Deen above their worldly concerns should be chosen as members of the Motamadeen and it was further laid down that if were discovered that any member had any mixing of his worldly concerns in his objectives then such member shall be forthwith removed from the membership of the Motmadeen. To fulfil the condition of inclusion of two eminent righteous scholars in the
Motamadeen the Promised Messiah nominated Maulana Syed M Ahsan Amrohi along with Maulana Nurud-Din, who was also made the President of the Anjuman.

Held in great honour by Maulvi Nur-ud-Din
In his speech which he delivered at the passing away of the Promised Messiah, Maulana Nurrudin thus spoke about Maulana M Ahsan Amrohi: “Similarly amongst those who are rendering service to Deen Allah, Syed Muhammad Ahsan Sahib is man of great learning. He is a Syed too. He has rendered such great service to the cause of Deen Allah which renders a person like me feel small. In spite of his old age he has written a lot in support of the Promised Messiah. This is such a great service which only he was capable of doing.”

Life sketch of Maulvi Syed Muhammad Ahsan Amrohi

Intro
This entire entry is taken from the Lahori-Ahmadi newspaper, “The Hope Bulletin”, see the editions of Dec-2007 and Jan-2008.  This is obviously a cover-up-job.  The originals are in Urdu and Ahmadis are fond of mis-translating, editing or leaving out major details.

[English translation by Choudry Masud Akthar, Secretary, AAIIL, Hayward, California of Yaad-eRuftagaan (Biographies of Prominent Members of the Lahore Ahmadiyya Movement), Volume 1.]

Maulana Syed Muhammad Ahsan Amrohi was one of the stalwarts and leading ‘Ulama of the Ahmadiyya Movement. He was one of the favoured persons who stood in the closest circle of the supporters and followers of the Promised Messiah. During his stay in Qadian, which used to be for quite long periods, he used to be the khateeb and imam of Masjid-i-Mubarak, where the Promised Messiah used to offer his Friday prayers behind him. His khutbahs were like an ocean of Qur’anic subtleties which quenched the spiritual thirst of hundreds of those who offered their Friday prayers in that masjid. His khutbahs were published in the Ahmadiyya Movement’s newspapers and are available in the Jama‘at’s library for all those who would like to benefit from the spiritual and intellectual power of his sermons. Before joining the Ahmadiyya Movement, Maulana Amrohi was an elect member of the Majlis-i-Ulema of Nawab Siddique Hassan Khan of Bhopal State in India. Nawab Siddique Hassan Khan had a deep interest in religious knowledge and had gathered around him a majlis from amongst the eminent ‘Ulama of the time from the Indian Sub-continent by employing them on high salaries. These ‘Ulama used to provide him with research material from which he wrote and published some outstanding books on Hadith and the teachings of the Qur’an. Maulana Amrohi was one of these research scholars and was held in high esteem for his learning. The Qur’anic verse, “Allah grants knowledge to whom He likes from amongst His slaves,” applies perfectly in the case of Maulana Mohammad Ahsan Amrohi. Those who had the good fortune of seeing him or keeping company with him attest that he was one of the ‘Ulama-iRabbani whose hearts were full of the light of iman. Whatever deductions he made from the Qur’an and the Hadith was so outstanding that no opponent could ever dispute his arguments. He had not only a deep insight into the teachings of the Qur’an and Hadith but was also an accomplished scholar in Sarf, Nahve, Fasalat, Balaghat, Mantiq and Philosophy.

Sign of the truth of the Promised Messiah

When in 1891 Hadhrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad claimed to be the Promised Messiah, prophesies about whose advent were to be found in the Hadith, the ‘Ulama of India became his sworn enemies and issued a fatwa of kufr against him. The Promised Messiah received an ilham in the form of Persian verse, which reads: Az Pae aan Muhammad AhsanRa- Tariq-i-Roozgar mei Benaam (For that purpose I see Muhammad Ahsan giving up his worldly subsistence or worldly desires) This ilham of the Promised Messiah proved true when, soon after, Maulana Syed Muhammad Ahsan Amrohi quit his high-paying job with Nawab Siddique Hassan Khan and joined the Ahmadiyya Movement and settled down at Qadian. This further shows that Maulana Ahsan Amrohi was held in great honour in Nawab Siddique Hassan’s Majlis-e-‘Ulama but that was also held in great honour in the sight of Allah that He chose him for this service of the Promised Messiah and filled his heart with the light which enabled him to recognize the Truth of the claims of the Promised Messiah. At a time when joining the Ahmadiyya Movement meant not only being subjected to the worst type of ostracization but also facing all types of hardships, giving up one’s means of income and subsistence, especially when there were no other apparent means in sight of earning a livelihood, was not a mean sacrifice. But without any care for all these considerations Maulana Syed M. Ahsan Amrohi gave up quite a richly remunerated position and, acting on the Divine Command of “Kunu Ma as Sadiqeen” [Be with the truthful (or righteous ones)] he became the supporter and follower of the one who was raised by Allah as the Promised Messiah and Mujaddad of the 14th Century. He chose to exemplify preferring deen over one’s worldly gains and, giving up a life full of comforts and luxury, he preferred to become a dervish and pass his life in the state of derveshi. In recognition of the eminence in learning, righteousness and spiritual qualities of Maulana Muhammad Ahsan Amrohi, the Promised Messiah declared him to be one of those angels about whom it is prophesied in the Hadith that the Messiah will appear resting his hands on the shoulders of two angels. The proof of this being that Maulana became a great support for the mission of the Promised Messiah in that he wrote such incontrovertible answers to the objections raised by the opponents of the Promised Messiah that they were silenced. The Promised Messiah used to ask Maulana M Ahsan to write answers to these objections and his answers served to silence them. He ceaselessly wielded his pen in defense of the Promised Messiah by writing books and publishing replies in the newspapers and magazines of the Movement, thus passing his whole life in this sacred jihad. He wrote about 30 books which contain so much knowledge on the truth of Ahmadiyyat that seekers after truth can benefit from these in any era. Thus Maulana M Ahsan Amrohi shall ever remain a sign of the truthfulness of the Promised Messiah and his mission. In Al-Wassiyat (The Will) the Promised Messiah has laid down that at least two persons who are scholars of the Deen (i.e. having deep insight in the teachings of the Qur’an and Sunnah and Hadith) should always be included in the Majlis-e-Motamadeen, the body which was authorized to manage and administer the affairs of the Ahmadiyya Anjuman which was declared by him to be his successor. The other condition for being a member of the Majlis-i-Motamadeen laid down by him was that only righteous persons who in right earnest prefer Deen above their worldly concerns should be chosen as members of the Motamadeen and it was further laid down that if were discovered that any member had any mixing of his worldly concerns in his objectives then such member shall be forthwith removed from the membership of the Motmadeen. To fulfil the condition of inclusion of two eminent righteous scholars in the Motamadeen the Promised Messiah nominated Maulana Syed M Ahsan Amrohi along with Maulana Nurud-Din, who was also made the President of the Anjuman.

 

Held in great honour by Maulvi Nur-ud-Din

In his speech which he delivered at the passing away of the Promised Messiah, Maulana Nurrudin thus spoke about Maulana M Ahsan Amrohi:

“Similarly amongst those who are rendering service to Deen Allah, Syed Muhammad Ahsan Sahib is man of great learning. He is a Syed too. He has rendered such great service to the cause of Deen Allah which renders a person like me feel small. In spite of his old age he has written a lot in support of the Promised Messiah. This is such a great service which only he was capable of doing.”

A few examples from his writings

As already stated, the Promised Messiah used to ask Maulana M Ahsan Amrohi to write answers to the questions which were asked or sent in writing to the Promised Messiah. Further, very often, answering the objections of opponents was also handed over to him. A few of such answers, as an example of his learning, may be of interest to readers: 1. When, on the publication of Ek Ghalati Ka Izala (A Correction of an Error) was published in 1901, some opponents alleged that Hadhrat Sahib had laid a claim to prophethood. The Promised Messiah asked Maulana M. Ahsan Amrohi to write a reply thereto. [This reply was published in Al-Hakm in 1901 and Sheikh Yaqoob Ali, its editor, had written about it that it was written with the support of ruh-alqudus.] This reply was approved by the Promised Messiah. In it, by giving seventeen quotations from Aik Ghalti ka Azala wherein there is a denial of any claim to prophethood, Maulana goes on to explain that in that ishtahar word Nabi (Prophet) and Rasul (Messenger) had been used in the same sense in which they were used in prior books, that is, simply in their dictionary or partial meanings, and no new claim had been made (in Ek Ghalati Ka Izala). (The English translation of this reply is available in The Ahmadiyya Case.) This reply, as a matter of fact, is the final word on the differences of the Ahmadiyya sections on the matter of the Nabuwat or Mujaddiyat. 2. In 1902, someone asked the Promised Messiah whether the use of the word muhaddath only about Promised Messiah is not proper or permissible. In Al-Hakm of 24 May 1902, Maulana replied in these words: “Mujaddad, Muhaddath, and Nabi, all these words (pertaining to the Promised Messiah) are synonymous, therefore elucidation in any of the two ways is correct and both these elucidations are found in the Book and the Sunnah-e-Sahiha.

This clearly means that the Promised Messiah, according to the terminology of the Shari‘ah, is a Muhaddath and only in the dictionary meaning can he be called a Nabi.

3. In one of his articles which appeared in Al-Hakm of 21 October and 10 November 1903, Maulana wrote:

“In the hadith, ‘Lam yabqa min an nabuwat-e-illal mubashsharat’ (Nothing is left of prophethood except mubashsharat [good tidings]). Exception is continual or uninterrupted and al in al-mubashsharat is beneficial for distinction. Thus, in brief, the meanings of the hadith are that nabuwat has two parts: one pertains to commandments, whether those about fariaz o wajbat (duties and obligations), or about halal and haram (permitted and unpermitted), and the other part, which are mubashsharat (good tidings), under which all mubashsharat (good tidings), whether those pertaining to anzarak (warnings) or bashsharat (good news) are included. From these two parts, the part or type which relates to mubashsharat continues till the Day of Judgement. Evidently, when out of the two parts of nabuwat (prophethood) one part is continuous, therefore nabuwat-e-juzvi (partial prophethood) continues. Yes, nabuwat-e-kulli (complete prophethood) has been terminated.”

After the passing away of Maulana Nur-ud-Din, Maulana Muhammad Ahsan Amrohi took bai’at at the hand of Mirza Bashiruddin Ahmad. He was one of those persons who proposed Mirza Bashiruddin’s name for Khilafat. He did not know that Mirza Bashiruddin Mahmud considered the Promised Messiah a full-fledged nabi and considered those who had not accepted full-fledged nabuwat of the Promised Messiah as kafir and outside the pale of Islam. When Maulana M. Ahsan’s book Mubahsa-e-Rampur was published, Qazi Akmal wrote a letter to him saying that Maulana, in his book, had supported the views of Maulana Muhammad Ali. It came as a big surprise to him as what he had written in the book was a presentation of the beliefs of the Promised Messiah. This awakened him and he conducted research on the beliefs of Mirza Mahmud Ahmad and found that they were against the beliefs and teachings of the Promised Messiah. He started correspondence with Mirza Bashiruudin Mahmud Ahmad advising him to bring his beliefs in line with those of the Promised Messiah. In view of Maulana’s views, Mirza Bashiruddin Mahmud Ahmad sent a deputation of ‘ulamas to Maulana Amrohi. Maulana Abdul Rahman Misri was one of the members of this deputation. He wrote that one day in a one-on-one discussion with Maulana Amrohi, he asked him when he paid attention to the beliefs of the Lahore Jama‘at. Maulana in reply mentioned the letter of Qazi Akmal which diverted his attention to research the beliefs of both sections, and that when he found out that Mirza Bashiruddin Mahmud Ahmad was not willingly prepared to make amends in his beliefs which ran contrary to the Promised Messiah’s then he published a declaration of the renunciation of the bai’at which he had taken at the hands of Mirza Bashiruddin Mahmud Ahmad, and thus he joined the fold of the Ahmadiyya Anjuman Ishaat-e-Islam, Lahore. Thereafter he also announced the dismissal of Mirza Bashiruddin Mahmud Ahmad from the Khilafat. Afterwards, Maulana M. Ahsan Amrohi wrote two books, Khatam-an-Nabiyin and Ismohoo Ahmad, in which he explained that the beliefs of the Promised Messiah were not contradictory to the belief of Khatam-an-Nabiyeen in any way and the prophesy of Ismohoo Ahmad in the Qur’an pertains to the Holy Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him. Maulana Syed Muhammad Ahsan Amrohi passed away in Amroha when he was in his late eighties. Some of his descendants presently reside in Karachi, Pakistan.
