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.
“””This misfortune encountered by Navvab Siddiq Hasan Khan was the result of a prophecy of mine which is mentioned in Barahin-e-Ahmadiyyah. He had torn up my book Barahin-e-
Ahmadiyyah and sent it back to me in that condition. I had then prayed that his honour might be torn up and that is what came to pass. [Tatimma Haqiqatul-Wahi, p. 37 footnote, Ruhani Khaza’in, vol. 22, p. 470 footnote].””” (also see Tadhikah, 2009 edition, online edition, pages 186-187).
“””Navvab Siddiq Hasan Khan… threatened non-Muslims with the sword of the Mahdi and was at last seized. His title of Navvab was revoked and he wrote very humbly to me requesting me to pray for him. Considering his situation pitiable, I supplicated for him and God the Almighty
addressed me and said:
[Urdu] His honour has been saved from being shattered.
…Finally, after some time he received orders of the Government to the effect that Siddiq Hasan Khan’s title of Navvab should be restored. [Tatimma Haqiqatul-Wahi, p. 37, Ruhani Khaza’in, vol. 22, p. 470] (also see Tadhikah, 2009 edition, online edition, pages 186-187).
Some brief commentary on this statement of MGA from 1907
MGA was fond of claiming to made prophecies many years before and then claiming then afterwards…there are many instances of this type of behavior. Nawab Siddiq Hasan Khan seems to have fell out of favor with the British govt. in the mid-1880’s. However, MGA was silent….MGA must sent him the Braheen before that..most likely 1879, nonetheless, MGA never published this prophecy til roughly 20 years later.
Maulvi Muhammad Ahsan Amrohi knew of MGA thru the correspondance with Navvab Siddiq Hasan Khan
This is the context from wherein Maulvi Muhammad Ahsan Amrohi knew MGA or had heard of MGA. Maulvi Muhammad Ahsan Amrohi was a follower of the Ahle-Hadith sect, he also knew Maulvi Nazir Hussain, who had read out MGA’s nikkah in 1884 in Delhi, he was the founder of the Ahle-Hadith sect.
The rulers of the state of Bhopal contributed heavily to the financing of the Braheen-e-Ahmadiyya in 1878
In Braheen e Ahmadiyya vol. 1 (1879), MGA published a list of contributors, these are those people who sent MGA money for 50 volumes of material, and 300 arguments on Islam (see page 3, BA-vol-1, online edition, https://www.alislam.org/library/books/Barahin-e-Ahmadiyya-Parts1-2.pdf).

Nawab Siddiq Hasan Khan died in 1890 and Maulvi Muhammad Ahsan Amrohi lost his job
As soon as Maulvi Muhammad Ahsan Amrohi’s employer died…he was thus out of a job, he immediately wrote an essay in support of MGA and moved to Qadian later in mid 1891.
15 years after Maulvi Muhammad Ahsan Amrohi moved to Qadian for employment, MGA fabricates a prediction that he claims to have had in 1891
Once it so happened that I was reading the poem of N‘imatullah Wali in which he has prophesied about my advent, has even mentioned my name, and has foretold that
the Promised Messiah would appear at the end of the thirteenth century of the Hijrah. Moreover, he has written a couplet concerning me [in Persian]: It means that the one who is
destined to come will be both the Mahdi and ‘Isa; both names will apply to him and he will make both these claims. While I was reciting this verse, I received the revelation:
This meant: [Persian] I see Maulavi Sayyed Muhammad Ahsan of Amroha has given up his
post in Bhopal State so as to pass his time near the Promised Messiah appointed by God and to strive in support of his claim.
This revelation is also mentioned in the paper “”Qadian”” dated
September 1, 1902, but the first line has instead of . Unless the narrator made a mistake, it seems that this revelation has two renderings. Allah knows best. [Mirza Bashir Ahmad]
This was a prophecy that was very clearly fulfilled afterwards. [Haqiqatul-Wahi, p. 333, Ruhani Khaza’in, vol. 22, p. 346] (see also Tadkirah, 2009 edition, online edition, page 227).
Amrohi was at the first Jalsa Salana in 1891, he was seated on the stage, right next to MGA
See page 417—http://www.muslim.org/bookspdf/tgr1/tgr1.pdf
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, starting in late 1892, he then began touring the countryside and helping MGA with debates.
Maulvi Muhammad Ahsan Amrohi and his 2 sons were listed in MGA’s list of 313 in 1896
His two sons were Muhammad Ismael Ghulam Kibria and Ahmad Hasan.
In 1900, he disagrees with the new prophethood of MGA
In 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.
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 other…
He died in 1919
His books remain in Urdu and unexplored, https://www.google.com/search?q=amrohi&sitesearch=aaiil.org
