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.

The references
“””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 His title of Navvab was revoked and he wrote very humbly to me requesting me to pray for him.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).

The list
1. Nawwab Shah Jahan Begam, GCSI, CI, Ruler of Bhopal
2. Nawwab Alauddin Ahmad Khan Bahadur, Ruler of
Loharu
3. Maulavi Muhammad Charagh Ali Khan, Assistant
Deputy to the Prime Minister of the State of Hyderabad
Deccan
4. Ghulam Qadir Khan, Minister of the State of Nalagarh,
Punjab
5. Nawwab Mukarramud-Dawlah Bahadur, Hyderabad
6. Nawwab Nazirud-Dawlah Bahadur, Bhopal
7. Nawwab Sultanud-Dawlah Bahadur, Bhopal
8. Nawwab Ali Muhammad Khan Bahadur, Ludhiana,
Punjab
9. Nawwab Ghulam Mahbub Subhani Khan Bahadur, Ra’ise-
A‘zam, Lahore
10. Sardar Ghulam Muhammad Khan, Ra’is, Wah
11. Mirza Saeed-ud-Din Ahmad Khan Bahadur, Extra
Assistant Commissioner, Ferozepur

(See BA-vol.1, page 3)

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
https://ahmadiyyafactcheckblog.wordpress.com/2016/09/30/maulvi-abdul-kareem-claims-prophethood-per-mga-maulvi-amrohi-disagrees/

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


Life sketch of Maulvi Syed Muhammad Ahsan Amrohi

(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.”

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.

 

 

Maulvi Abdul Karim claims Prophethood per MGA, Maulvi Amrohi disagrees

Intro

I wanted to post some references from Mahmud Ahmad’s 1915 book , “Reality of Prophethood” aka “Haqiqatun Nubuwwat”.  In this reference, Mahmud Ahmad gives the very first announcement of MGA’s prophethood in 1900.  He also explains how only Maulvi Abdul Kareem knew about it and how Maulvi Amrohi was in the dark.

The reference

“At last that event did take place. In the year 1900, Maulavi ‘Abdul Karim, the preacher of the Friday sermon, gave a sermon in which he, used the words Nabi (Prophet) and Rasul (Messenger) for the Mirza. This caused great irritation to Maulavi Sayyid Muhammad Ahsan Amrohawi. When Maulavi ‘Abdul Karim came to know of this, he gave another Friday sermon in which be addressed the Mirza, requesting him to contradict his belief, if he was wrong in considering him to be a prophet and Messenger of God. Afterthe Friday prayers were over, Maulavi ‘Abdul Karim caught hold of the skirt of the Mirza’s apparel and requested him to correct him in his beliefs if they were erroneous. The Mirza turned around and said that he, too, held the same belief. Meanwhile, Maulavi Muhammad Ahsan had been greatly agitated by thesermon and in anger was pacing the floor of the mosque. On Maulavi ‘Abdul Karim’s return, he began to quarrel with him. When their voices rose very high, the Mirza came out of his house and recited theQur’anic verse: “O ye who believe! Don’t raise your Voice above the voice of the Prophet.”

(This event is based on the report of a speech of Sayyid Sarwar Shah Qadiani at an annual conference held in Qadian, and published in al- Fadhl, Vol. X, No. 51, dated january.4,1923)

(See also Haqiqat al- Nubuwat, p 124.[published in 1915])

Conclusion

MGA had multiple ghost writers and scribes.  They didnt all agree on MGA’s claims and it is obvious that they disagreed with each other on the prophethood of MGA.  In fact, after “Correction of an Error” was published in 1901, Maulvi Amrohi wrote a detailed response to an inquiry that MGA may have claimed prophethood….The Maulvi refuted it.  He wrote that MGA had only denied independent prophethood, nothing else.  However, after the split of 1914, Amrohi had initially sided with Mahmud Ahmad and the people at Qadian, in fact, he was the Maulvi who had nominated Mahmud Ahmad for Khalifa, however, after Mahmud Ahmad wrote “Qaul al Fasl” and “Haqiqatun Nubuwwat” (1915)...a few months later, Amrohi had a change of heart and claimed that even though his sons had read these books out to him, he hadnt understood them, he then proceeded to do a 180 degree switch and became a Lahori-Ahmadi, and that was how he was buried.,  

Further, in Aug of 1908, Maulvi Sanaullah accused MGA of only being a prophet for 6 1/2 years.

Dear readers, for the time ever, the Ahmadiyya movement has fully translated MGA’s most voluminous book into english.  We are currently reading it and preparing an academic styled review.  We are sure that the Ahmadiyya editing team has already went through this book and purposely mis-translated the controversial portions of this book.  The book should be called “Reality of Revelations”, however, Ahmadiyya editors are being told what to write and how.  We found an error between Muhammad Ali’s translation and the new one.  Enjoy!

We already found something
In 1915, as the Lahori-Ahmadi’s had already split with the Qadianis.  Muhammad Ali was busy refuting the Qadiani doctrines in terms of the prophethood of MGA, Takfir and the verse of Ismuhu Ahmad.  Muhammad Ali’s most compelling argument was that MGA had written in 1907, in the supplement to Haqiqatul Wahy as follows:

Supplement, Istifta, p. 64

“Prophethood has admittedly been terminated with the advent of our Holy Prophet, peace and blessings of Allah be upon him. There is now neither any book besides the Quran, the best of the Scriptures nor any Shari’ah other than Shari’ah of Muhammad. The Holy Prophet, who is the best of all creation, has given me the name ‘prophet’ which is a reflection of countless blessings earned by obeying him faithfully. I see no virtue of my own. I owe accomplishments to this holy soul. My prophethood in the divine lingo means only abundance of communion and communication. Let the curse of Allah be upon him who aspires anything beyond this and arrogates or pulls his neck away from the yoke of obedience to this Holy Prophet. Our Messenger (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him), is undoubtedly the Khatam al-Anbiya and with him has terminated the chain of the messengers; so no one can now claim perfect prophethood after our Messenger, the Chosen one. Nothing is now left after him except abundance of communion and communication and even that cannot be received without obedience to the Holy Prophet, who is the best of mankind. I declare it on solemn affirmation that I have attained this status only by following the beams of light radiated from his prophethood, and that I have been called a prophet by God only metaphorically and not by way of reality.”

This supplement was in Arabic only
I would have to guess that Ahsan Amrohi wrote this supplement, since Maulvi Abdul Kareem was already dead, Nooruddin probably helped.  To date, we have not checked the arabic on this sentence.  We are working on that.

The new translation–2018
….prophethood came to an end after our Holy Prophet, may peace and blessings of Allah be upon him, and there is no Book after al-Furqan [the Discrimination; i.e. the Holy Quran] which is superior to all earlier Scriptures, neither is there any new shariah after the Muhammadan Shariah.  

However, the Best of Mankind declared me to be a Prophet, and this is a matter of being his reflection due to the blessings of complete submission. And I find no excellence within me; all that I have obtained is through his holy soul. By calling me a Prophet, Allah means only [that I receive] abundant revelations and converse [with God]. May the curse of Allah be upon the one who aspires to anything beyond that, or considers his own person as something special, or frees his neck from the yoke [i.e. complete submission] of the prophethood [of the Holy Prophet sa].

Surely, our Messenger is Khatamun-Nabiyyin [the Seal of the Prophets] and the chain of
Messengers has ended with him. Therefore, no one has the right to claim prophethood after our
Messenger, the Chosen One, in an independent manner, and nothing has remained after him except dialogue [with Allah] in abundance. Even this is conditional upon following [the Holy Prophet sa] and is not granted unless one is a true follower of the Best of Creation. I swear by God that I have been blessed with this spiritual station only by following the radiant rays of the light of the Chosen Prophet sa. I have been granted the name ‘Prophet’ by Allah, not in its original sense [of being raised independently], but as a subordinate Prophet.

Either Muhammad Ali lied or the Qadiani editors?
I can’t figure out who is lying here.  At least not yet.  If you notice, they took out the word metaphor and totally replaced it with “original sense” and they removed, “not by way of reality” and wrote: but as a subordinate Prophet”Something is wrong here, how could there such a difference in translations?

Copy and Paste

The background to Hazrat’s entry into the struggle against Qadianism is that during his visit to the Hijaz for Hajj in 1890 AD (1307 A.H.), the chaste atmosphere of the Holy Land had touched him so deeply that he had thought of permanently settling down there. However, Haji Imdad-ullah Muhajir of Makkah had advised him to return home in the following words:

“In the near future, a dangerous and evil movement is likely to raise its head in India, and you are destined to play a key role in combating it. Even if you do nothing actively against this movement, your mere presence in the country would help shield the country’s ulama against its pernicious effects”. The truth of these words was proved barely a year later, i.e., in 1891, when Mirza of Qadian announced his (initial) claim to be the Promised Massiah (Jesus Christ) – an announcement that was to culminate about ten years later in his claim to be a full-fledged prophet of God in his own right.

Two spiritual visions experienced by Hazrat around this time also deserve a mention in this context. According to one of these, quoted in Malfuzat-e-Mihriya, the Holy Prophet (P.B.U.H) had appeared to Hazrat (R.A) in a dream and had commanded him to effectively refute Mirza of Qadian, who was “tearing to pieces his (i.e., the Prophet’s) ahadith through distortion and misinterpretation”. 

According to the other vision, which is described in a manuscript in Hazrat’s own handwriting discovered later in his personal papers, and which occurred when Mirza challenged Hazrat to an open debate in 1900A.D, Hazrat had seen himself seated in a most respectful posture before the Holy Prophet (P.B.U.H) in his prayer cell, in the manner of a disciple sitting before his Shaikh (spiritual guide), while Mirza of Qadian was sitting a good distance away with his back turned to the Holy Prophet (P.B.U.H). 

Hazrat construed this as a clear indication of Mirza’s defiance of the Prophet’s teachings, and this prompted him to accept Mirza’s challenge for a debate in Lahore. In Hazrat’s celebrated book Saif-e-Chishtiyai (The Chishtia Sword), which Hazrat wrote later in refutation of Qadianism, he has also described a dream which he had seen in his youth, and according to which he had successfully repulsed a sword attack by the one-eyed Dajjal (Antichrist) in three consecutive thrusts. This dream, too, he interpreted as symbolically forecasting his victorious fight against the heretical Qadyani creed later in his life.

Qadyani request to Hazrat (R.A) for support and Hazrat’s response

Hazrat’s first direct contact with the Qadyani movement occurred when Maulvi Abdul Karim of Sialkot, one of Mirza’s followers, sent to Hazrat a copy of Mirza’s published letter of invitation in which he had claimed to be the Promised Messiah and had been assigned by God with the task of reviving the din and working for the ascendancy of Islam. The letter requested Hazrat’s support in this task. In reply, Hazrat wrote that he did not accept Mirza as the “Promised Messiah”, and advised him to continue to confine his activities to the holding of debates with non-Muslims and the propagation of Islam as before, instead of making such odd claims.

Mirza’s challenge to the Mashaikh (spiritual leaders)

Recognizing the powerful influence which the mashaikh wielded on the minds of the Muslims of India in general, Mirza made every possible effort to enlist the backing of some of them for furthering his mission. However, these efforts met with no success whatsoever. In frustration, therefore, he threw out an open challenge to the entire Mashaikh community in the following words in his Ayyam-us-Sulh:

“There is no one under the sun at present who could claim to be my equal. I say to the Muslims openly and without fear: Let all those who lay loud claims to be muhaddith (master of Hadith) and mufassir (commentators of the Quran), who profess to know God, and call themselves Chishti, Naqshbandi, Suharwardi and what not, come before me (if they dare)”.

Hazrat’s book “Shams-ul-Hidayah”

Hazrat Pir Meher Ali Shah Sahib wrote a book titled “ Shams-ul-Hidayah Fi Isbat-e-Hayatul Masih” in 1899. In this book written in the form of questions and answers on the various relevant issued, Hazrat confirmed as unanimous the Muslim belief concerning the raising alive of Jesus Christ to Heaven, in both body and spirit, and his expected future descent in physical person to earth some time before the Day of Judgment. He did so with powerful arguments based on Quran and authentic ahadith. He showed the Qadyani beliefs regarding the “ death “ of Christ on the Cross, and coming of the Masil as the promised messiah (in the person of Mirza Ghulam Ahmad), to be utterly false. In reply to Mirza’s challenge to the country’s mashaikh reproduced above, Hazrat invited him to first explain him the real meanings of the Kalma (Translation: There is No God but Allah, and Holy Prophet (P.B.U.H) is Allah’s Messenger) before his challenge would be accepted.

Commotion in Qadian

The strength of Hazrat’s arguments in Shamsul Hidayah, written in scholarly style and language, can be fully appreciated only by the truly learned reader. The book was, therefore acclaimed by ulama of all schools of thought. Among other, Maulvi Abdul Jabbar Ghaznavi, a leading scholar of the Ahl-e-Hadith school, expressed his appreciation in a personal letter addressed to Hazrat. Understandably, the book caused a stir in Qadian, where the preparation of replies to the various points raised in it was taken immediately in hand. In the reply of the above mentioned book, Hazrat Pir Meher Ali Shah Sahib was then asked a dozen counter-questions by Hakim Nurrudin, Mirza’s closest and most trusted associate of his own which were totally unrelated to the main point at issue, viz., the “death” and “life” of Jesus Christ, such as Wahdat-ul-Wajood, Awlia (saints), ilham, Kashf, correctness of ahadith etc.

All the questions were answered in detail with the related Hadith and Quranic verses. At the end of his reply, Hazrat posed just one counter question to Hakim Nurrudin, asking him to explain “the reality of miracles”. This question was, however, never answered.

The aforesaid correspondence was published in the form of a leaflet by Maulana Muhammad Ghazi, senior teacher in the madressah at Golra Sharif, and distributed to ulama in different parts of the country. All ulama paid glowing tributes (both written and oral) to the force of Hazrat’s arguments and the deep learning which they exhibited. The publication of the leaflet led to a widespread demand for Mirza to reply to the questions listed in Hazrat’s Shamsul Hidayah.

Mirza’s challenge to Hazrat for a written debating contest

Nettled by the aforesaid demand, Mirza threw a challenge to Hazrat, in a poster issued on 20 July 1900 and witnessed by twenty persons, to engage in an open debate with him. Curiously, however, the challenge was not for a debate on the specific disputed issue (viz., the “death” of Christ, or on Mirza’s own claims to be the masil of Christ, the Promised Messiah and a zilli nabi, i.e., shadow prophet), but for a contest in the writing of an Arabic language commentary on selected Quranic verses.

According to the poster, the proposed contest was to take place at Lahore, the capital city of Punjab Province (and at no other place), at a venue to be selected and arranged by Hazrat, or failing this by Mirza himself. A maximum of 40 Quranic verses were to be selected by ballot, all of them from one particular Surah of the Quran, and commentaries thereon were to be completed within a period of seven hours on the same day and in the presence of witnesses, without the help of any book or other assistance. A maximum of one hour would be given to each party to prepare himself for writing the commentary. The commentaries, each of which was to span at least 20 leaves (40 pages) of normal-sized paper and writing, would, after their completion and signatures by the respective contestants, be read out to three learned persons for adjudication. These persons would be nominated, and arrangement for their presence made, by Hazrat Meher Ali Shah. Mirza indicated that the names of Maulvi Muhammad Hussain of Batala, Maulvi Abdul Jabbar Ghaznavi, and Prof. Maulvi Abdullah of Lahore, or some other three neutral Maulvis would be acceptable to him for this purpose. After listening to the two commentaries, the judges would pronounce on solemn triple oath as to which one was considered by them to be superior and written “with Divine endorsement”. In the event of Hazrat’s commentary being adjudged better or even equal in merit to that of Mirza, the latter pledged to admit that the truth was on the side of Pir Meher Ali Shah. He would then burn all books containing his claims to messiah-ship and prophet-hood, and acknowledge himself to be “the damned and the disgraced one”. On the other hand, if Mirza were to be adjudged the victor, or if Pir Meher Ali Shah were to refuse to enter the contest, he would repent and pledge allegiance to Mirza and announce this through a published poster.

Hazrat was asked in the poster to convey acceptance of the challenge, along with an assurance that he would pledge allegiance to Mirza in the event of his defeat in the contest, within ten days, through a printed poster witnessed (like the poster of Mirza) by twenty respectable persons. Five thousand (5,000) copies of this poster were to be prepared and distributed by Hazrat to the interested quarters.

Mirza’s poster was accompanied by a supplement, which inter alia emphasized categorically that the commentaries to be written by the contestants would be wholly in Arabic language and would not include any portion in Urdu. It further spelt out some of the conditions mentioned in the main poster, set out arrangements for the contest in greater detail, and also made a few additional proposals. One such proposal was that the participation of Hazrat Pir Sahib in the contest would be essential in any event since he had the reputation of being superior to all other maulvis (Muslim clergy) in the knowledge of Arabic and the Quran. At the same time, however, he felt it was necessary to widen the purview of the contest and to include in it as many other ulama as possible, on the express condition that these ulama would sit at some distance from each other and from the two main contestants so that they could not provide any written or oral assistance to one another or to see what others were writing. This would help avoid the possibility of some ulama regarding themselves as superior to the Pir Sahib in the knowledge of Arabic and the Quran, and on that basis refusing to accept the defeat of Pir Sahib as binding on them. It would also ensure that the “Sign of God” was manifested with the maximum strength and glory. Mirza suggested, therefore, that the Pir Sahib should furnish a list of at least forty ulama (besides himself) who would also take part in the contest. Furthermore, he asked Hazrat to suggest a date for the contest not earlier than one month hence, in order to allow enough time to the other participating ulama to make the necessary preparations and arrangement to be present in Lahore on the date of the contest. A notice of one week was to be given by Hazrat to Mirza, through a registered letter, after fixing the date of the contest. At the end of the supplement, Mirza gave his own list of 86 eminent ulama and mashaikh from all over the country, from among whom the forty ulama other than the Pir Sahib should preferably be selected, and invited them all to be present at the contest.

Hazrat’s reply accepting the challenge

Mirza’s poster and its supplement were received in Golra Sharif on 25 July 1900. Hazrat immediately prepared a poster in reply and had it printed and published the very next day in all leading newspapers of the country. As desired by Mirza, 5,000 copies of this poster were prepared and some copies were sent to Mirza at Qadian by registered post. Copies were also mailed or sent by hand to ulama in all parts of India, including the 86 ulama listed at the end of the supplement to Mirza’s poster, and also to ulama in adjoining Afghanistan. All this generated widespread interest among the people.

In his reply, Hazrat wrote that he whole-heartedly accepted the invitation for a public contest extended by Mirza as well as the conditions listed by him, including the venue proposed for the contest (viz., Lahore). He also accepted the three ulama named by him as prospective judges. He suggested, however, as an additional condition from his side, that the two contestants should first engage in an oral debate elaborating their respective points of view. In this debate, Mirza Sahib should first try to convince the audience, through oral arguments, about the validity of his professed claims to be the Promised Massiah, the Mahdi, and a prophet of Allah. Hazrat, in his turn, should try to effectively refute those claims. The judges should then give their verdict in the light of these presentations, and the written contest in commentary proposed by Mirza should take place only after the judges and the audience had expressed their judgment about the oral debate. Furthermore, as far as written presentation was concerned, the many books written by Mirza were filled with his various claims and views, and these had already been read and commented upon in detail by various ulama and also by other fair-minded intellectuals from time to time. Because of all this Hazrat concluded, it seemed but appropriate to give first priority to an oral debate and a secondary one to a written contest.

As desired by Mirza, the 25th of August 1900,i.e exactly one month after the date of Hazrat’s answering poster, was proposed by Hazrat as the date for the contest, and Mirza was asked to reach Lahore on that date. Also as desired by Mirza, Hazrat’s poster was witnessed by twenty respectable persons, mostly ulama.

A reply to the supplement to Mirza’s poster was written, on Hazrat’s behalf and with his approval, by Maulana Muhammad Ghazi, head teacher of the madressah at Golra Sharif, and was appended to the main poster. It reaffirmed Hazrat’s readiness, as expressed in the main poster, to undertake the contest proposed by Mirza on the latter’s own conditions, with the additional condition to have an oral contest before the written one. It also added a few auxiliary observations. For example, it reproduced a selected sampling of the many absurd interpretations that had been placed on verses of the Quran by Mirza Sahib, to suit his own ends and to establish his claims to prophet-hood etc.

Qadiani’s objection to Hazrat’s proposal

Mirza had been asked from Hazrat’s side to give timely intimation about any changes that he desired to be made in the conditions of the proposed contest. However, no such intimation was received until just four days before the scheduled date of the contest (i.e.25 August 1900), when a copy of the printed letter was delivered in Golra Sharif. This letter had been written, not by Mirza Sahib himself but by Syed Muhammad Ahsan Amrohi, one of his close associates. The letter rejected, on Mirza’s behalf, the proposal made by Hazrat for an oral debate and insisted on a written contest in commentary writing only. In reply, Mirza was promptly informed through a poster issued on Hazrat’s behalf on 21-22 August 1900 by Hakim Sultan Mahmood of Rawalpindi (one of Hazrat’s devotees), that although Hazrat still considered an oral debate to be the best method of deciding the issue, he was ready for only a written contest also on Mirza’s own conditions and was therefore leaving for Lahore to participate in such a contest. A copy of the poster was sent by registered post to Mirza at Qadian. All other interested quarters, which could be contacted within the very short time then left until the date of the contest, were also notified accordingly, although the poster could not be published as widely as would have been desirable.

In their various subsequent writings and statements, Mirza Sahib and other Qadyani writers have contended that in the poster published by Hakim Sultan Mehmood, the condition for oral debate, which was unacceptable to Mirza, had been allowed to stand and had not been withdrawn by Hazrat. Because of this, they say, Mirza Sahib could not have participated in the contest under any circumstances.

Huge Muslim assemblage at Lahore, venue of the contest

As the appointed date approached, hundreds of Muslims belonging to all schools of religious thought (Shi’ah, Sunni, Ahl-e-Hadith, etc.) and all walks of life started arriving in Lahore from various parts of the country. Major Islamic Madressahs and centers of learning (e.g., those in Delhi, Saharanpur, Deoband, Ludhiana, Amritsar, Multan etc.) sent their representatives and even some public servants from far-flung areas took leave of absence and came to Lahore to witness the historic contest. From the other side, members of the Qadyani community also came in sizeable numbers. In a period when people as a rule took keen interest in religious matters, the participation of Hazrat Pir Meher Ali Shah (R.A) a renowned scholar and an eminent spiritual personality , along with the large group of distinguished ulama, in the historic debate which was to decide the fate of the leading imposter of the 19th / 20th century, generated unprecedented enthusiasm.         

Nomination of Hazrat as leader of Ulama

In this moment of destiny, ulama of various shades of thought sank their traditional differences, and unanimously declared Hazrat (R.A) to be their sole spokesman and leader. They thus displayed once again that all-pervading Islamic spirit of brotherhood which has helped unify the Muslim Ummah at every critical turn of history against its common enemies, and of which no parallel can be found in any other religion or creed.

The fact that the group of ulama which elected Hazrat as their undisputed leader on this occasion included many who were far senior to Hazrat – then only 42 years of age and barely in the tenth year of his mission of teaching and spiritual guidance-underscores the high esteem in which he had come to be held in the religious circles even at that early stage.

Hazrat’s arrival in Lahore

On leaving Golra Sharif for Lahore by train on 24th August 1900, Hazrat had two telegrams sent to Mirza at Qadian, first from Rawalpindi and then from Lala-Musa railway station situated on the rail route to Lahore. This was meant to ensure that he was duly informed about Hazrat’s expected arrival in Lahore. About 50 eminent ulama accompanied Hazrat from Golra railway station, and many more from other areas either joined him at various points en route or reached Lahore directly to join the group of welcomers. A very large gathering of people received Hazrat on his arrival to Lahore, at the railway station. They proposed to take Hazrat in a procession to the venue of the contest, but Hazrat vetoed the suggestion. Hazrat was indeed so convinced about that when Mirza finally refused to come to Lahore for the contest, Hazrat even thought of going personally to Qadian, along with a selected band of ulama, to meet Mirza in his own stronghold. He was, however, dissuaded from doing so by a majority of the Muslims, on the ground that such a course was inadvisable for various reasons.

Mirza’s failure to reach Lahore

Hazrat and his associates, as well as all others who had assembled in Lahore in large numbers to witness this epoch-making contest, waited for two full days, i.e. 25 and 26 August 1900, for Mirza to arrive. Meanwhile, the Qadianis kept giving assurances that Mirza Sahib’s arrival was being delayed only due to negotiations about the applicable terms and conditions, and that he would come as soon as these were finalized. However, Mirza failed to turn up. Many influential Ahmadis of the Lahori faction reportedly tried hard to induce Mirza to come to Lahore, but did not succeed. His main objection was that withdrawal of the condition of oral debate should have been announced by Hazrat personally instead of through his associate Hakim Sultan Mehmood. It was pointed out to him that withdrawal had been done so because Mirza’s own rejection of Hazrat’s suggestion for oral debate had been conveyed through the same procedure, i.e., through the associate Muhammad Ahsan Amrohi a proxy and not by Mirza personally. Nevertheless, Hazrat even then showed his readiness to withdraw his condition under his own signature provided Mirza did the same in respect of his rejection of that condition. Mirza, however, not only declined to do so but also refused point-blank to come to Lahore. According to him, the maulvis had conspired to have him assassinated under cover of engaging him in a debate to disprove his claim to prophet-hood. (In making this allegation, he conveniently ignored the fact that the contest had been arranged at his own initiative and not at the insistence of the maulvis! )

Reaction among Mirza’s followers

When the Qadyani representatives eventually failed to persuade their leader to come to Lahore for the debate, a wave of dismay swept through the community. Many disillusioned Qadianis deserted the party, while some others went into despaired seclusion. Many more (e.g., Babu Ilahi Bukhsh, who had previously been a long-time and zealous Qadyani activist but had later repented and rejoined the ranks of orthodox Muslims) even published posters and pamphlets lauding Hazrat’s learning and erudition and acclaiming his victory in the contest. The diehards, however, not only refused to accept defeat but in fact declared the episode to be a resounding victory for their side. Posters were splashed all over Lahore announcing “the flight of the Pir Sahib of Golra” against the latter-day Imam (i.e., Mirza), “the crushing defeat of the maulvis and the Pir by the heavenly sign”, and “the inspired tidings of the Promised Massiah being proved correct”. All this despite the fact that the entire city was witness to the prolonged presence of Hazrat Meher Ali Shah Sahib in Lahore, and to the fact that Mirza of Qadian was refusing to come there notwithstanding repeated calls to do so.

As a diversionary tactic, a delegation of the Qadyani community met Hazrat following the cancellation of the debating contest due to Mirza’s crying off, and suggested a Mubahilah (i.e., a contest of supplication to Allah between Hazrat and Mirza). According to this proposal, either of the person whose prayer was answered positively would be acknowledged as the victor. Hazrat readily accepted even this suggestion, but the Qadyani side did not pursue it further.

Qadyani preachers and orators offered a variety of far-fetched rationalization to justify the course of action adopted by Mirza. Far from producing any favourable impact, however, such rationalization merely helped to make a laughing stock of these Qadyani preachers as well as their beleaguered leaders. The upshot of all this was that neither Mirza Sahib nor his party ventured to openly face the forces of truth ever again and relied instead on clandestine and underhand tactics to promote their cause.

In still another poster, which was dated 25 August 1900 and was later published in the collection of his posters titled “Tabligh-e-Risalat” , Mirza indicated, with reference to Hazrat’s proposal for an oral debate, that in order to break the Pir Sahib’s false notions about his own prowess in this sphere, he had first thought of sending his friend and eminent scholar Syed Muhammad Ahsan Amrohi for such a debate. However, the latter had declined to do so because he had come to know through revelation that the Pir Sahib’s camp included people who had a habit of indulging in obscene abuses. While his earlier claims had been that he had the endorsement of Archangel Gabriel for his cause, and that “Allah would protect him from (the evil designs) the people”, he was now afraid of the Pathans of N.W.F.P. In the circumstances, Mirza said he had now himself compiled a booklet on the subject as a “gift” for Pir Meher Ali Shah, titled Tohfa-e-Golraviyah (The Golravi Gift). If and when the Pir Sahib replied to the contents of the booklet, the people would automatically come to know about their respective arguments and their answers.

Mirza’s new proposal

Accordingly, he sought to revive the issue once again on 15 December 1900 (4 months after the previous abortive contest) by publishing yet another poster. He said in order to settle the matter once and for all; he had been inspired by God with the fresh proposal. Under this proposal, he would, sitting in Qadian, write a commentary in chaste Arabic on the opening Surah of the Holy Quran, Al-Fateha. In this commentary, he would prove his various claims in the light of Surah alone, besides describing other truths and facts stated in Surah. Similarly Hazrat, sitting in Golra Sharif, would do the same. The two commentaries should be printed and published in book form within 70 days after 15th December 1900, so that everyone can compare them and form his judgment about their respective merits. A price of Rs.500 would be paid to Hazrat if his commentary was adjudged by three scholars to be superior to that of Mirza. The party failing to write and publish the proposed commentary within the stated period would be regarded as a liar, and no further proof for that purpose would be needed.

Hazrat’s reaction to this proposal

This new challenge had not the slightest impression on Hazrat Pir Meher Ali Shah Sahib (R.A). Devoted as every moment of his life was to the remembrance of Allah, spiritual contemplations, and providing guidance to knowledge thirsty humanity, fruitless activities like this had no place in a sober scheme of things. Under compulsion of circumstances, and on the insistence of other ulama, he had already spent what he thought to be more than enough attention to this matter, even disregarding the oppositions to this voiced by some Mashaikh (including Hazrat Khwaja Allah Bukhsh Sahib of Taunsa Sharif). He thus had no more time to waste on such futile exercises. While, therefore, Mirza did prepare and publish his planned commentary on Al-Fateha, under the title Ijaz-ul-Masih, (Miracle of the Massiah) within 70 days as stipulated by himself, no such thing was done by Hazrat.

As expected, Mirza’s book was found, not only by scholars but even by students, to be full of glaring errors of Arabic language, grammar and diction, and replete with plagiarized ideas and content. In one place, for example the month of Ramadan had been said to consist of 70 days; at another, yowm-ud-din (Day of Judgment) was termed as the period of the Promised Massiah (Mirza himself). Because of this, the book failed to cut any ice with the concerned circles.

Hazrat’s book “Saif-e-Chishtiyai” 

In reply to Mirza’s two books, Ijaz-ul-Masih and Shams-e-Bazighah, Hazrat wrote his now-renowned book Saif-e-Chishtiyai (The Chishtia Sword), and had it distributed free of cost to the sub-continent’s ulama and mashaikh as well as among religious schools and other institutions.

Saif-e-Chishtiyai further elaborated the arguments contained in Hazrat’s earlier book Shams-ul-Hidayah. In addition, it made nearly one hundred critical comments on the incorrect meaning and logic, errors of grammar, diction and idiom, plagiarisms and distortions in respect of Surah Al-Fateha (the opening Surah of the Holy Quran) as contained in Mirza’s Ijaz-ul-Masih. Similar criticism were made of the contents of Shams-e-Bazighah, in which an effort had been made by Mirza to spell out the meaning of the Kalimah (There is no god but Allah and Muhammad (P.B.U.H) is Allah’s Messenger) as demanded by Hazrat in Shams-ul-Hidayah and objections had also been raised to the various points made in that book (Ijaz-ul-Masih, written by Mirza Qadyani).

In Saif-e-Chishtiyai, Hazrat had inter alia predicted that since Mirza was an impostor, he would never have the privilege of visiting Madina Munawwara and paying his respects at the tomb of the Holy Prophet (P.B.U.H), which, according to a hadith was one of the things which Jesus Christ (the real Promised Massiah) was destined to do, along with the performance of Hajj, after his future descent to earth. This prediction was proved correct when Mirza died a few years later neither performing Hajj nor visiting Madina.

Mirza passes way

The publication of Saif-e-Chishtiyai took the sails decisively out of the Qadyani movement. It helped thousands of wavering Muslims regain firm faith in the real truth. Even many Qadianis repented and discarded Qadianism after reading the book. However, Mirza and many of his diehard followers still failed to learn any lesson. In 1907, as part of his continuing vendetta against Hazrat Pir Meher Ali  Shah Sahib (R.A), Mirza made yet another of his long chain of unfulfilled predictions-one that proved to be the last that he was destined to make ever again. He predicted that Hazrat would pass away during the coming month of Jaith of the Bikrami calendar. Instead, however, he himself breathed his last during the same month of the following year!

A summing up

Hazrat Syedna Pir Meher Ali Shah Sahib (R.A) was no doubt in the forefront of all those ulama and Mashaikh who waged a heroic struggle to nip the evil of Qadianism in the bud. He occupied a leading position among those who laid down the foundation of what developed in course of time into a nation-wide “ Khatm-e-Nabuwwat” (P.B.U.H) (Finality of Prophet-hood), and that resulted three quarters of the century later in the Qadyani community being unanimously declared to be outside the pale of Islam by the elected legislature of the Islamic Republic of Pakistan on 7th September 1974. To those pioneering crusades must, therefore, go the ultimate credit for showing the real face of the Qadyani creed to the world.

Following the verdict of Pakistan’s Parliament, the Ahmadiyat community’s missions are now reported to be working under covers mainly in some European, African and other countries in the name of Islam. They present themselves and Mirza Sahib as an orthodox Muslim by placing before their audience only the writings belonging to the early period of Mirza Sahib’s life when his beliefs were still those of an orthodox Muslim. They expunge the portion of Mirza’s writings that contain his claims to prophet-hood and other related claims and deny that Mirza Ghulam Ahmad ever made a claim to prophet-hood or any other claims contrary to Islam. 

It is hoped that the facts about the Qadyani movement presented, in the context of Hazrat Syedna Pir Meher Ali Shah’s (R.A) struggle against it and on the basis of authentic original sources, would help to see the Qadyani (Ahmadi) movement in its true colours, and to understand that enrollment in the Qadyani (Ahmadiya) community would not amount to embracing Islam but to adopting a creed that is totally antithetical to that great faith.  

 

 

Mirza Ghulam Ahmad and Muqamat Al-Hariri

Intro
MGA had a team of writers, these writers would plagiarize all the time.  In the below, I have collected all data on MGA and his team and how they plagiarized from Muqamat Al-Hariri.  Our fellow Arab Ex-Ahmadi’s have exposed this in their writings, see Hani Tahir and Ikrima Najabi.
Brother Hani Taher and other Arab reverts have pointed out that Mirza Ghulam Qadiani’s famous Khutba Ilhamiyya does contain text from Al-Hariri’s Muqamat.  In this case, and all others, Ahmadi editors have tried to present things “after-the-fact”, and thus twist up the timeline of events.  We have, however, presented a true timeline in the below.  MGA barely knew any Arabic, all of the Imam’s of India knew this.  However, MGA would have his team write in Arabic on his behalf and thus fool people.

It all started in 1897 with Hariri
Maulavi ‘Abdul Haq Ghaznavi wrote a poster against the MGA in which he raised the objection and challenged the knowledge of Arabic of MGA, and invited to hold a contest in Arabic with him so that the question could be established who knew Arabic better. MGA immediately accepted the offer of a contest and said that since he had no knowledge of Arabic and that he was an illiterate according to Maulavi ‘Abdul Haq Ghaznavi, if as a result of the contest he was overwhelmed in the debate, which would be nothing short of a miracle of God, then the Maulavi would have to offer his hand in bai‘at and join the Ahmadiyyah Jama‘at. Maulavi ‘Abdul Haq Ghaznavi and his friend, Shaikh Najfi, a Shia, remained silent and refused to honour his own invitation to hold a contest (see Hidden Treasures of Islam, pages 193-195).

MGA and his team then wrote Hujjatulla (God’s Final Argument) in Arabic with an Urdu translation (he began on March 17, 1897 and completed on May 26, 1897)
MGA then asked his opponents, particularly Maulavi ‘Abdul Haq Ghaznavi and Shaikh Najfi, (both had written letters to MGA and made assertions that he did not know Arabic) and Maulavi Muhammad Hussain Batalavi, to produce a book at least comparable to his Arabic and produce the like of it in the same manner within three or four months, then they can treat me as a liar.Further, they were welcome to enlist aid from anyone in producing a book of similar size, using prose and poem and invite Professor Maulavi ‘Abdullah or any one scholar who can swear that their written book was superior or even equal to mine in quality and the scholar swearing in such manner will be seized by divine punishment within 41 days, then if he survives I will burn all my books and will seek repentance on their hands, this will settle daily bickering between me and them and if they do not advance to accept the challenge then their falsehood would be exposed to public. He allowed them to appoint a professor of Arabic to act as a judge and let him make his award under solemn oath. MGA said if the adjudicator declared that the work of his opponents was superior to his, he would pray to God and if the judge was not then overtaken by the wrath of God within a period of 41 days, he would burn all his books and stand condemned. But no one had the courage to accept this daring challenge.

In this book, which bore the title of Hujjatullah, MGA spoke of the various signs which his God had shown in his favour. He also pointed out the error of his Shia opponents. In a graphic and eloquent manner he explained that the Shia beliefs were not right, because the Caliphs, Hadrat Abu Bakrra, Hadrat ‘Umar and Hadrat ‘Uthman, were the rightful Caliphs and Hadrat ‘Ali had acknowledged them so. (see Hidden Treasures of Islam, pages 193-195).

After Hujjatullah was published
MGA’s critics allege that several sentences and paragraphs in this text are taken directly without alteration, from Maqamat al-Hariri, the best known poetry collection of the Arabic scholar and poet Al-Hariri of Basra.  For this reason, his claim to divine instruction in Arabic is not accepted in Islamic Orthodoxy. Ahmadis, however, claim that the alleged instances of plagiarism are not true because Mirza Ghulam Ahmad had deliberately inserted the writings of Al-Hariri with his own and then openly declared that he had done as such as a challenge to his critics to compare and separate the two. His followers claim that as clearly stated by him in the beginning of his book Hujjatullah it was only after his use of Arabic was labelled inadequate, ungrammatical and ‘unchaste’ by his opponents that Ghulam Ahmad deliberately amalgamated his own writings with that of Al-Hariri‘s in order to expose his adversaries; whom he called upon to distinguish between his writings and that of Al-Hariri’s.

A quote from Hujjatullah
“””Thus the method which will free the people from his deception is that we present to him paragraphs from our writing and some other paragraphs from the writings of a great Arab writer while concealing the names of the authors, and then call upon him to tell us which paragraph out of this is ours and which is theirs, if you are truthful. Then if he recognizes my sayings and theirs and distinguishes between them as between a shell and its kernel, then we shall give him fifty rupees as a reward.”””

– Hujjatulla, pg. 4-5

By 1903, MGA considered himself as Hujjatulla
Interestingly enough, by 1903, MGA was calling himself as the Hujjatulla.

“”””Hadrat Hujjatullah [The Promised Messiah] may peace and blessings be on him, supplicated at Gurdaspur for those of his friends who were present there and also collectively for those who were not present. He prayed by name for those who were present or whose name he recalled, and also collectively for all members of the Jama‘at, whereupon he
received the revelation:

[Arabic] Then good news for the believers.

[al-Badr, vol. 3, no. 1, January 1, 1904, p. 6 footnote and
al-Hakam, vol. 7, no. 46, 47, December 17, 24, 1903, p. 15]

After MGA died, Ahmadi’s lied about MGA’s Arabic abilities
See Hani Tahir’s video on this matter: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OtWYpjwehPQ

 

From the 2009 online edition of Tadhkirah

See page 300—301.April 2, 1893(349)

Maulana ‘Abdul-Karimra said: Hadrat Maulavi Hakim Nurud- Dinra…had started the construction of a large house in Bhera…. The construction had not yet been completed…when one day in the winter Maulavi [Hakim Nur-ud-Dinra] arrived in Qadian for a brief meeting with the Promised Messiahas. The same night the Promised Messiahas received a revelation (350) which indicated that Maulavi [Hakim Nur-ud-Dinra] should migrate to Qadian. Next morning he informed him of this and suggested that he should emigrate to Qadian and should not return home. This faithful one made no excuse. The house remained unfinished but this man of God did not go back. [Address of Maulana ‘Abdul-Karimra, al-Hakam, vol. 6, no. 32, September 10, 1902, p. 11]. 

349—

350--Hadrat Khalifatul Masih Ira mentioned this revelation in his autobiography which he dictated to Akbar Najib Abadi as following:

The Promised Messiahas told Maulavi ‘Abdul-Karimra: I have received a revelation concerning Nur-ud-Din. It is in the form of a couplet in the poem of Hariri:

[Do not go back to your homeland. You will face humiliation and suffering there.]
[Mirqatul-Yaqin Fi Hayate Nur-ud-Din]

See Page 1020

April 2, 1893 (1229)
The Promised Messiahas mentioned to Maulavi ‘Abdul- Karimra one day that he had received a revelation:
1230
[Arabic] [Do not be inclined towards your home, in that there are humiliation and trials.]

The Promised Messiah[as] said:

It appears that this revelation has reference to Nur-ud-Din.
[Appendix al-Badr, vol. 8, no. 40, July 29, 1909, p. 77 and Mirqatul-Yaqin FiHayat-e-Nur-ud-Din, p. 169].

1229– Note by Maulana Abdul Latif Bahawalpuri: This date is recorded in the Jaibi Bayad of Hadrat Khalifatul Masih Ira, but it does not record the year. However, we have entered 1893 here because it can be established based on firm evidence. For this reason we have entered it under this year. [See Tarikh-e-Ahmadiyyat, vol. 1, p. 494, new ed., under the heading Faith Inspiring Event of the Migration of Maulana Nur-ud-Dinra]

1230 —Note by Syed Abdul Hayee: The Jaibi Bayad of Hadrat Khalifatul Masih Ira, page 149, records it as following: [Arabic] Do not be inclined towards your home, you will be treated with injustice and will face trials; And adds to it the next couplet of Hariri: [Arabic] Remember, a man of his own mind suffers a loss in his country.

After MGA died, Nuzul ul Masih was published (1909)
Ahmadiyya sources tell us that this was written in 1902 and published in 1909.  This book tells us how MGA’s opponents, specifically Pir Mehr Ali Shah were accusing MGA of plagiarizing from Hariri.

Maulvi Muhammad Ahsan Amrohi
“”Maulawi Muhammad Ahsan Sahib had a hasty nature. Once out for a walk with the Promised Messiah (on whom be peace) he misheard the Promised Messiah (on whom be peace) when he said there is a difference between word of God and word of man and said this is a revelation of mine compared to revelation of Hariri (an academic). Ahsan Sahib remarked how frivolous it was but as soon as he realised his mistake he instantly said what fine words they were.””  Friday Sermon of Mirza Masroor Ahmad, 7-24-15

In Mujadid-e-Azam, at page 337 Dr. Basharat
While giving detail of Molvi Nuruddin ,s shifting to Qadian, he writes that “Hazrat sahib told Molvi Abdul Karim that I have received a revelation about Molvi Nuruddin as under:-

لا تصبون الی الوطن۔ فیہہ تھان و تمتحن
In next lines the author says this couplet is present in AL-HARIRI.

Mirza Ghulam Ahmad vs. Maulvi Karam Din–Court Case 1903–1905, references from the 2009 edition of Tadhkirah and some other sources

Intro
MGA lost one court case against him in his career.  It is the case of MGA vs. Karam ud Din.  I have collected some bits and pieces of info here.   In January 1903, on behalf of Moulvi Karam Deen of Bheen District Jhelum, and Moulvi Faqeer Mohammad, Editor of Sirajul Akhbaar Jhelum, Hadhrat Sheikh Yaqoob Ali Editor of Al Hakam and Hadhrat Hakeem Fazal-ud-Deen of Bhera who were being sued in connection with a booklet, ‘Saif Chishtian’ by Peer Mehar Ali who was custodian of the Goalrah Shrine.  On Oct-16th, 1903, MGA left Qadian for Gurdaspur (see NOV/DEC-1903—ROR).  MGA and Hakeem Fazal Din lost this case in 1904 (exact date unknown), and were about to be thrown in jail, however, they made bail (700 rupees) and were released.  About a year later, they won on appeal in early 1905.  It was a Judge european Judge named Mr. Hurry, he was the sessions judge of Amritsar.

December 6, 1902
(A) Last night I was in such a state that if I had not received Divine revelation, I would have been proved right in thinking that my last moment had arrived. While I was in this condition, I was overtaken by sleep and saw in my dream that I was in a cul-de-sac and three buffaloes (636)
were coming towards me. When one of them approached me I beat it away and the same happened with the second one. Then the third advanced towards me. I felt that it was so
strong that there was no way of deliverance from it. While this was passing through my mind, Allah the Almighty so ordained that it turned away. Taking advantage of this I slipped through brushing against it and began to run. I was thinking that it would be running after me but I did not look back. Then the following Prayer was inspired by Allah the Almighty in a dream upon my heart:

637–Arabic O my Lord everything serves You. So O my Lord, protect me and help me and have mercy on me. [Publishers]

638--al-Hakam, vol. 6, December 10, 1902, p. 10, reports that the Promised Messiahas said:
This prayer is an amulet and protection… I will henceforth make this supplication regularly in my Prayers, and you should also do it.

He also said:

The greatest matter in it, which teaches the True Unity—that is, assures that Allah the Glorious alone can cause any harm or impart any benefit—is that it teaches us that [O Allah] everything is in Your service, and no harmful thing can cause any damage without Your will and permission.

It was conveyed to me that this is the great name of God and that whoever supplicates in these terms would be delivered from every affliction. [al-Badr, vol. 1, no. 7, December 12, 1902, p. 54 and al-Hakam, vol. 6, no. 44, December 10, 1902, p. 10].

(B) Of the Signs shown in my favour is one in which God, the All-Knowing and the Wise, informed me about a mean person and his great calumny against me and apprised me through His revelation that this man would attack me in order to humiliate me, but would himself become my target in the end. Allah the Almighty conveyed this to me in the course of three dreams. He disclosed to me in a dream that this enemy of mine would engage three helpers in my opposition to achieve success in his proceedings to dishonour me and to put me to trouble. I was shown in a dream that I was hauled into court like a prisoner but I was shown that I would be delivered in the end, though after an interval. I was also given the good news that the affliction would be reverted upon this lying mean enemy of mine himself.…. Then I began to wait for the developments as indicated in the prophecy. After the passing of a year, all this happened at the instance of Karam Din. (That is, he brought unjustified criminal charges against me).639 [Haqiqatul-Wahi, p. 215, Ruhani Khaza’in, vol. 22, p. 225].   

639—This Sign was originally published by the Promised Messiahas in Mawahib-ur Rahman in Arabic and Persian. Later, in Haqiqatul-Wahi, he published the same in Urdu. Our English rendering is based upon the Urdu citation in Haqiqatul-Wahi. [Munawar Ahmed Saeed]

655—-[Arabic] I shall humiliate him who designs to humiliate you. I shall help him who designs to help you. You have a high standing in My Presence. I have chosen you for Myself and your secret is My secret. You are with Me and I am with you and your secret is My
secret. When you are angry, I am angry and when you love, I also   love. You are to me like My Unity and My Uniqueness. So the time has come when you should be helped and be known among people. Allah praises you from His Throne. Allah praises you and is walking towards you. You have a high standing in My Presence. I have chosen you for Myself and your secret is My secret. You have a standing with Me of which the people have no knowledge. O My
Ahmad, you are My purpose and are with Me. You are with Me and I am with you. Your secret is My secret. When you are angry, I am angry and everyone you love, I love. You have a high standing in My Presence. I have chosen you for Myself. [Publishers].

While in Lahore I received, repeatedly, the revelation: That is [Arabic] I shall show you My blessings from every side.658 [al-Hakam, vol. 7, no. 4, January 31, 1903, p. 15 and al-Badr, vol. 2, no. 1–2, January 23–30, 1903, p. 9].

658-–This prophecy was fulfilled in this wise* that when I approached Jhelum about ten thousand people came to see me. The road was choked with people in all sorts of humble attitudes as if they wanted to prostrate themselves. Then there was such a multitude of people around the District Courts that the Magistrates were greatly surprised. Eleven hundred men and two hundred women made the bai‘at and joined the Jama‘at. Karam Din’s complaint against me was dismissed. Many people made offerings and presented gifts out of good will and humility. Thus we returned to Qadian enriched in every way with God’s blessings and God fulfilled the prophecy very clearly. [Haqiqatul-Wahi, p. 252, Ruhani Khaza’in, vol. 22, p. 264].

I was pondering deeply about the result of the cases which have been filed against me by Karam Din and which some members of my Jama‘at [Community] have filed against him. In this condition, I received the revelation:

714—[Arabic] Verily, Allah is with those who are righteous and those who do good. In this there are Signs for questioners. [Publishers]

I was made to understand that of the two sides God will be with those and will bestow help and victory upon those, who are righteous—that is to say, who do not tell lies, do not wrong anyone, do not calumniate anyone, do not persecute people by cheating, deceiving, and dishonest dealing, and eschew every vice and adhere to truth and justice. And fearing God, they treat His servants with sympathy, goodwill and goodness, and are true wellwishers of mankind. They are not inspired by beastliness, wrongdoing and evil, and are ever ready to behave virtuously towards everyone. The final decision will be in their favour. At that time those who ask: ‘which of the two sides is in the right’ will be shown not one Sign but many Signs.

al-Badr reports that the Promised Messiah[as] narrated the following dream upon rising in the morning:

I had taken up a pen to write. I observed that its point was broken. Thereupon I said: Put on to it one of the nibs that had been sent by Muhammad Afdal. While those nibs were being looked for, I woke up….

If someone would take the time out from worldly occupations and stay with me, he would witness a running river of prophecies being fulfilled like the one of yesterday concerning a pen.740[al-Badr, vol. 2, no. 37, October 2, 1903, p. 390].

740— al-Badr reports that:

After 10 a.m. the case brought by Karam Din against the Promised Messiahas and Hakim Fadl Din was brought up. Khwajah Sahib presented a request on behalf of Hakim Fadl Din that the charges made by Maulavi Karam Din are the same for the investigation of which I have brought a case against Karam Din. Therefore the present case should be postponed till the earlier cases are decided. The lawyers on both side entered into a debate on this issue and the court decided to
postpone the decision to the following day. In the evening the Promised Messiahas received the revelation: [Persian] Be glad and happy. On the 24th the case brought by Sheikh Ya‘qub ‘Ali Editor al- Hakam against Maulavi Karam Din and the Editor of Sirajul-Akhbar of Jehlum was to be heard. But since the testimony of the plaintiff was not available, the case was postponed to October 21, 1903. Since the court had not yet rendered a decision of the discussion of the previous day, Khwajah Sahib wanted to bring up additional legal points. After hearing him, the court decided after 1 p.m. that the plea for postponement be turned down. Thus the words of God, which He
conveyed to His apostle on the 22nd in the evening and which he had narrated on the morning of the 23rd were fulfilled. [al-Badr, vol. 2, no. 37, October 2, 1903, p. 390].

I understood this as indicating that the interpretation of the first court would not be upheld on appeal; and so it happened. The Divisional Judge rejected all the arguments advanced on behalf of Karam Din and held that la’im and kazzab were appropriate for Karam Din, who was
deserving of even stronger words.[Haqiqatul-Wahi, p. 380, Ruhani Khaza’in, vol. 22, p. 394].

A Maulavi named Karam Din filed some criminal charges against me in Gurdaspur and the maulavis opposed to me appeared as witnesses in the court of Atma Ram, the Extra Assistant Commissioner…. Atma Ram did not pay full attention to the merits and made up his mind to sentence me to imprisonment. Thereupon God conveyed to me that Atma Ram would be afflicted with the deaths of his children. I communicated this vision to the members of my
Jama‘at825. It so happened that within 20 or 25 days he lost two sons. In the end, though he had laid the foundation in his judgment of sentencing me to imprisonment, God held him back from that design, yet he imposed upon me a fine of 700 rupees. I was then honourably acquitted on appeal by the Divisional Judge. But Karam Din’s conviction and sentence were maintained. My fine was remitted but Atma Ram’s sons did not come back…. According to the Divine prophecy which had been published already in my book Mawahibur-Rahman, I was acquitted, my fine was refunded, and the issuing officer’s [Atma Ram’s] order was set aside and he was rebuked for issuing an improper order. But Karam Din (as I had already published in Mawahibur- Rahman) was convicted and punished and the judgment of the court confirmed his being a liar. [Haqiqatul-Wahi, pp. 121–122, Ruhani Khaza’in, vol. 22, pp. 124–125].

825—Note by Maulana Abdul Latif Bahawalpuri: Qadi Muhammad Yusuf, Amir Jama‘at Ahmadiyyah, Frontier Province writes in his book Sawanih Zuhur-e-Ahmad Ma‘ud:

The Promised Messiahas saw in a dream that a lion has taken away both sons of Atma Ram. At the same time as the Promised Messiahas narrated this dream, Atma Ram received a telegram that his son is suffering from plague. Two sons of his died one after the other with plague. [Zuhur-e-Ahmad Mau‘ud, pp. 51–52].

Sheikh Khair-ud-Din 1261 narrated that: When the case of Karam Din was pending before Chandu Lal Magistrate, the Promised Messiahas said: I do not see Chandu Lal1262 occupying the Magistrate’s chair.[al-Hakam, vol, no. 38, no. 25, July 14, 1935, p. 4 and Register Riwayat-e-Sahabah, vol. 9, pp. 58–59]

1261–Note by Hadrat Maulana Jalal-ud-Din Shamsra: He was from Ludhiana and was a cobbler by profession. He used to make shoes for the Promised Messiahas. He stated that he stayed with the Promised Messiahas in Gurdaspur during Karam Din’s trial.

Chaudhry Muhammad ‘Ali Khan Ashraf Head Master Bairam Pur narrated that:

The Promised Messiahas said at the time of ‘Asr Prayer one day before judgment was to be delivered in the case of Karam Din… that he had seen in his dream that he was returning home riding a white horse and his wife said (something like): We have suffered a loss (probably of money). The Promised Messiahas said to her: That does not matter as I have returned safe.

The Promised Messiahas interpreted the dream that the Magistrate (who was a bigoted Arya, and was bent upon giving the decision against the Promised Messiah) would sentence him to a fine, but nothing more. However, on appeal he would be acquitted and would thus be made
secure against the mischief of the Magistrate. That is exactly what happened the next day; he was sentenced to a fine, which was immediately paid … and on appeal [he was acquitted and] the fine was remitted.[al-Hakam, vol. 38, no. 3, January 28, 1935, p. 4].

Shukar Ilahi of Nabi Pur District Gurdaspur narrates that: On the (day) on which judgment in the case of Karam Din was to be announced… the Promised Messiahas was walking… under the trees at the time of ‘Asr.… He stopped suddenly from walking and said something to Maulavi Sahib [Nur-ud-Din]. At that time the case was called and when we returned to the shed, the Promised Messiahas said to Maulavi Sahib [Nur-ud-Din]: I have seen in a vision that
my handkerchief had fallen in a pool of water but was recovered. He interpreted this as meaning that he would be sentenced to a fine which would be remitted. And that is what happened.[Register Riwayat-e-Sahabah, vol. 3, p. 114]

Miyan Allah Yar Contractor of Batala narrates through Maulavi Ghulam Nabi Misri that:
At the end of the case in Gurdaspur, when the Promised Messiahas was about to leave for Batala for the return journey to Qadian, he received a vision or a revelation:

[Urdu] The route via Batala is dangerous.

The Promised Messiahas asked for the carriages to be brought, and three of them were brought. (He changed his route and commenced the journey.) He explained the reason for the change of route. In the meantime a rath (bullock chariot) had been sent from Qadian to Batala to meet him. Instead of the Promised Messiahas some of his companions including Sheikh Ya‘qub ‘Ali, travelled in it. When they arrived at the canal bridge, they found that some of the opponents from Massanian and Batala were pretending to hold a meeting. They had conspired to waylay the Promised Messiahas at the bridge and throw him into the canal. ….When the chariot approached the bridge it was surrounded by the crowd of opponents… and there was
a skirmish… but when they discovered that the Promised Messiahas was not in the chariot, they apologised for the assault. [Register Riwayat-e-Sahabah, vol. 10, pp. 280–281].

Summary written by Syed Hasanat Ahmad (2010)

The publication of the book had an instant impact. It published a prophecy of the Promised Messiahas about Maulavi Karam Din. The book was published on January 15, 1903, by special efforts of the press workers in Qadian and carried the news that Maulavi Karam Din would attempt to involve the Promised Messiahas in criminal cases and the Promised Messiahas was divinely informed that he would be honourably acquitted from these cases. The publication had to be completed before that date as Maulavi Karam Din had already moved the Extra Assistant Commissioner of Jhelum to issue warrant of arrest of the Promised Messiahas under Section 500, 501 and 502 of the Criminal Procedure Code and the date of hearing was fixed on January 17, 1903. The issuance of warrant of arrest provided yet another occasion to opponents to raise an uproar against the Promised Messiahas and they were clamouring a severe punishment for him. The trip from Qadian to Jhelum became historic in several ways. Giving details of the journey in a later publication (Haqiqatul-Wahi), the

Promised Messiahas said:

When I was on my way to Jhelum in connection with a case filed by Maulavi Karam Din, I had a revelation: “I (God) will shower blessings upon you from all directions.” I related the revelation to the people of my Jama‘at and this revelation came true in this manner that, when I reached Jhelum, about ten thousand people came to see me and most of them had lined up on the roads. Such a crowd had assembled in the court that it had amazed the authorities. About
eleven hundred people came to me for bai‘at and about two hundred of them were women. The case filed by Maulavi Karam Din was dismissed and a large number of people made offerings in cash and kinds to show their regard and respect for me. And this was how I was showered with the Divine blessings and returned to Qadian victoriously. (Haqiqatul-Wahi, p. 252, Sign No. 101, Ruhani Khaza’in, vol. 22, pp. 263-264).

Summary written by Syed Hasanat Ahmad (2010)

Padre ‘Imad-ud-Din, a native convert from Islam, was a paid servant of the Christians for a long time. He had already made himself notorious by his rabid and scurrilous attacks upon the Holy Founder of Islam. His books Tarikh-e-Muhammadi and Hidayatul-Muslimin had inflicted deep wounds upon religious susceptibilities of the Muslims. Even the Ra’i Hind and Prakash of Amritsar had protested against his bitter attacks. Another Hindu paper, Aftab-e- Punjab had
also condemned his writings. Muslims exposed this paid preacher of Christians in a book entitled ‘Uqubatud Dallin. Even the organ of the American Mission, Shamsul Akhbar of Lucknow had admitted the abusive nature of Padre ‘Imad-ud-Din and his colleagues Maulavi
Karam Din, Nizamud Din, Ilahi Bakhsh, Hamidullah Khan, etc., who were called Maulavis and learned men to deceive the public. The Promised Messiahas offered five thousand rupees as a reward if they could jointly produce a book like the one entitled Nurul-Haqq (Life of
Ahmad by A.R. Dardra, edition of 2008, pp. 412-413).

Ahmadas had felt the need of a press at Qadian as early as 1892. An Ishtihar was issued and a fund was opened for this purpose; but, it appears satisfactory arrangements could not be made at that time. Sh. Nur Ahmadra brought his press, Riyad-e-Hind, from Amritsar and A’ina Kamalat-e-Islam was then printed at Qadian. After that Hakim Fadal Dinra started a press at
Qadian in 1895. It was named Diya’ul Islam. This press produced Ahmad’sas publications at cost price (Ahmad’sas statement in Karam Din’s case, Section 420. I.P.C. dated. 19.8.1903). It was for this reason that Ahmadas produced, on 15.8.1898 a detailed account of this press in the income tax case. (See statement of Hakim Fadl Din in Karam Din’s case on 20.7.1903).

Statements Under Oath of Maulavi Muhammad ‘Ali in the Court

14) a. In the presence of Promised Messiahas, Maulavi Muhammad ‘Ali appeared as a witness on May 13, 1904. On being questioned by Khwaja Kamal-ud-Din he said:

Anyone who denies the truthfulness of a Prophet is a great liar. Mirza Sahib has claimed to be a Nabi. His followers believe him to be true in this claim and his opponents consider him false. The Holy Prophetsa is true according to Muslims and false according to the Christians.

b. On June 16, 1904, in the presence of the Promised Messiahas, in response to the critique made by Maulavi Karam Din, Maulavi Muhammad ‘Ali said:

Mirza Sahib makes a claim of nubuwwat in his writings. The purport of his claim is that, “I am a Nabi but I have brought no new shari‘ah.” According to the Holy Qur’an anyone who treats such a true claimant as a liar is a great liar. (Court Proceedings, p. 362).

16) In the case of Maulavi Karam Din of Bhaiñ [District Jehlum], acting as attorneys, Khwaja Kamal-ud-Din and Maulavi Muhammad ‘Ali, submitted the following statement under the signature of the Promised Messiahas:

There is another view of the matter according to Mohamedan theology. One who belies a person claiming to be a Prophet is a kadhdhab [great liar] and this has been admitted by prosecution evidence. Now the complainant knew perfectly well that the first accused claimed that position and, notwithstanding that, he belied the accused. Consequently in religious terminology the complainant was a kadhdhab. (Proceedings Gurdaspur Court, p. 194).

Summary written by Syed Hasanat Ahmad (2010)

Explaining the use of relevant quotes from other authorities, the Promised Messiahas stated that these quotes do not constitute plagiarism, otherwise everyone will be exposed to this charge. It so happened that Mian Shahabuddin and Maulavi Karam Din in their correspondence with the Promised Messiahas mentioned that most of the material appearing in Saif-e-Chishtiya’i written by Pir Mehar ‘Ali Shah is copied word by word from the notes of Maulavi Muhammad Hasan Faidi and these notes were written by him on the margins of the books I‘jazul-Masih and Shamse Bazighah and these books carrying marginal notes were bought. This is how the devious Pir was exposed who made the allegations that the Promised Messiahas had plagiarized whereas the same charge recoiled on him.

The Promised Messiahas also replied to criticism that Pir Mehar ‘Ali Shah made in his book, Saif-e-Chishtiya’i about the merit of the I‘jazul-Masih. The Promised Messiahas also established that the revelation made to him were revelation of high order. The Pir also made an allegation that the Promised Messiahas had been plagiarizing from Maqamat-e-Hariri but what actually transpired was that Pir Mehar ‘Ali Shah had himself plagiarized from the notes of Maulavi
Muhammad Hasan Faidi which the Maulavi had written marginally on the I‘jazul-Masih and Shamse Bazighah by Hadrat Maulavi Muhammad Ahsan Amrohi. This information was given by Mian Shahabuddin and Maulavi Karam Din in their letters to the Promised Messiahas. This whole correspondence has also been published in this book.

“””Then another case was filed against me in the court of Mr. Dowie, and was followed by yet another concerning income tax. By the grace of God, my innocence was established in all of them. Then came Karam Din’s case in which every effort was made against me and it was
assumed that the case would sound the death knell of this Jama‘at. Indeed, had the Jama‘at not been from God and had He not sustained and strengthened it, it would no doubt have been wiped out. People from one end of the country to the other lent their support to Karam Din. He
was aided and abetted in every way, so much so that some of the prosecution witnesses, despite their claim to beingreligious divines, testified to what was totally false. They went to the extent of alleging that despite being an adulterer, a transgressor and a libertine, I dared claim to be righteous. The case dragged on for a long time. During this period a number of heavenly signs appeared. At long last, the judgement was announced by the magistrate, who happened to be a Hindu, imposing a fine of five hundred rupees on me. But God had already informed me:

“The Superior Court acquits.”

Therefore, when the appeal was filed in the court of the Divisional Judge, he, in his God-given shrewdness, at once got to the bottom of the case and noted in the judgement that whatever I had written about Karam Din was absolutely correct and I had full right to do so. The judgement he passed has since been published. In the end, he acquitted me of the charge and ordered the refund of the fine. He also censured the trial court for letting the case linger so long.

Page 86
Is it not strange that while you are His beloved,
The entire affairs are being carried out to my favour?
Then not only this that it has happened once, I see the bounties of God at each step.
Look at that man from Bheen whose named Karam Din,
Who even sacrificed his sleep for the sake of conflict,
For whose help there was fervour among the people and
Whose weaknesses were hidden by every enemy of truth,
Whose friend was every aggressor and strayed person,
For whose help came the Muslim clerics, (210)

Page 94
What a strange thingHe helps a disbeliever
That God Who was supposed to befriend the believers.
In your eyes, even Karam Din was one of the pious ones
Who aggressively attacked mefor no reason.
I was not without supportGod’s help was with me
God’s revelation repeatedly gave glad tiding of victory.
But he did not see mehis eyes were closed
Then, after retribution, he decked himself with eye salve.
In the offices123, his name still remains as a liar
Now he can’t erase this name until the Day of Counting. (130)
