Noorudin was always ready to sacrifice his kids for Ahmadiyya
Name of the Book is Hazrat Sayeda Amtul Hayee Sahiba, page 7-8.
I was surprised to learn how the first Ahmadiyya caliph thought of his daughter as a commodity to prove his devotion for Mirza Ghulam Ahmad, as if her daughter’s marriage was only his choice. Unfortunately, such statements are only found in Ahmadiyya Urdu literature.
Name of the Book is Hazrat Sayeda Amtul Hayee Sahiba, page 7-8.
Daughter—Amatul Ha’i— is born, was married off to Mirza Mahmud Ahmad, the Khalifa, on May 31st,1914, See Walter. She was only 14 years old. The Khalifa was 25 years old. In one of his books, the Khalifa commented that this wife of his was not good looking (See Fazl e Omar, online english edition).
_____________________________________________________________________________________________Son—Maulvi Abdus Salaam (He married a daughter of Mufti Muhammad Sadiq)(died in 1956, was buried at Rabwah). He seems to have died in the same era that his brothers were getting kicked out of Rabwah and Ahmadiyya
He seems to have remained an Qadiani-Ahmadi. His son recently popped-up in an Ahmadi magazine. After the partition of 1947, they moved to Quetta. Which is very strange. We are not sure how he got the title of “Maulvi”. Nevertheless, he sent his son to Rabwah for schooling in the early 1950’s. His son’s name is Sami Omar Sahib, he was born in Qadian in 1944. Sami Omar Sahib is also the maternal grandson of Mufti Muhammad Sadiq.
Abdul Manan Omar represented the Lahori Ahmadi’s to the 1974 Pakistan National Assembly proceedings in which Ahmadis (both LAM and Qadianis) were declared non-Muslim. Abdul Manan Omar sahib testified on behalf of LAM in those proceedings.
_____________________________________________________________________________________________Noorudin dies in March of 1914, Amatul Hai is married off to the new Khalifa in May of 1914
As soon as Noorudin dies, the newly elected Khalifa seems to have quickly expanded his reach. He grew up in the same house as Amatul Hai since they all lived in MGA’s house (see Walter and Tarikh i Ahmadiyya). Amtul Hai is only 14 years old.
_____________________________________________________________________________________________Mirza Basheer-uddin Mahmud Ahmad and Amatul Hai have 3 children from 1914 to 1924
Amatul Haye becomes the secretary of Lajna in 1922, the Khalifas wife #1 becomes President
“””At the instruction of Hadhrat Khalifatul Masih II(ra) these signatory women assembled on December 25th, 1922 at the house of Hadhrat Nusrat Jehan Begum(ra), wife of the Promised Messiah(as). After Zuhr (afternoon) prayer, Hadhrat Khalifatul Masih II(ra) made a short speech, and in this way the Lajna Ima`illah came into existence. After this session, detailed rules of Lajna Ima`illah were published in the magazine, Tadeeb-un-Nisa, which used to be published in Qadian under the editorship of Hadhrat Sheikh Ya‘qub ‘Ali ‘Irfani Sahib(ra). In this way the regular activities of the Lajna began.”””
“””Initially, there was no separate body in the community for women. Understanding the crucial role of women in Islam, and inspired by his second wife, Amatul Hayee Sahiba(ra), Hadhrat Mirza Bashir-ud-Din Mahmud Ahmad(ra), Khalifatul Masih II (Second Successor to the Promised Messiah(as)), founded a separate organisation (within the community), Lajna Ima’illah, solely for women. Hadhrat Amatul Hayee Sahiba(ra) was its first secretary. After her, this important office was assigned to the wife of Hadhrat Mirza Bashir-ud-Din Mahmud Ahmad(ra), Hadhrat Sarah Begum Sahiba(ra) and then to Hadhrat Sayeda Maryam Begum Sahiba(ra).”””
“””When Lajna Ima’illah was established, its members requested Hadhrat Nusrat Jehan Begum(ra), the Blessed wife of the Promised Messiah(as), to become its first president. It is likely that she presided over the first session, but during that very session she nominated Hadhrat Sayeda Mahmuda Begum Sahiba(ra) as president. Hadhrat Sayeda Mahmudah Begum Sahiba(ra) held that post until her death on 31st July, 1958. From August 1958, Hadhrat Maryam Sadiqah(ra) assumed this responsibility.”””

We have covered how Mirza Basheeruddin Mahmud Ahmad forcibly married the daughter of Noorudin. The Khalifa eventually killed her after she wrote several letters and sent them to important people in the Punjab in terms of Kings who take advantage of common people. She wrote these letters while Mirza Basheeruddin Mahmud Ahmad was away on his tour of the UK. She died shortly after the Khalifa returned. In his reminisces, the Khalifa described this women as ugly and etc.
Noorudin’s eldest son was also murdered mysteriously in this era. His 2 younger sons would eventually be kicked out of Ahmadiyya in the 1950’s. Hence, the entire family of Noorudin has left Ahmadiyya one way or the other.
She was being raped by her father, the Khalifa. He raped her extensively, she was barely 10 years old. Her mother was so disturbed by all of this that she wrote letters to high ranking people in the Punjab and was killed.
Abdul Wahab was the elder brother of Abdul Mannan Omar (1910-2006), they were both the sons of Noorudin (the 1st Khalifa). His only sister was Amtul Haye (the eldest sibling) and his elder brother who was killed was Abdul Haye, his other elder brother was Abdus Salaam (died in 1956). He was born and raised in MGA’s house, since Noorudin lived exclusively with MGA, in MGA’s mansion complex.
Nevertheless, he arrived in London on 22 August 1924 (he seems to have been travelling from July 28th to August 22nd) and stayed at 6 Chesham Place, Belgravia, SW1. In a report of the visit published in the Review of Religions October 1924 p. 371, it is written that “The news of His Holiness’s visit to London was published along with suitable notes in most of the important papers in London. The first public lecture which His Holiness gave in England is the one which His Holiness delivered in Portsmouth on 13 September”. The address in Portsmouth, at Piles Hall was delivered before a large audience and is entitled, “A Message from Heaven” (reproduced in The Review of Religions, Jan 2003). The London Conference of Living Religions began on 22 September 1924. The Khalifa’s paper on “The Ahmadiyya Movement” was presented on 23 September and was read out by Chaudhry Muhammad Zafrulla Khan.
At 4pm on 19 October 1924, the Khalifa laid the foundation stone of the London Mosque with over 200 people of various nationalities and religious beliefs present at the ceremony. The Khalifa delivered a short address in which he explained that a mosque was a place to worship and serve God alone. A telegram dated 20 October 1924 from Maulvi Abdur Rahim Dard to Hadhrat Maulvi Sher ‘Ali in Qadian states that Hadhrat Khalifatul Masih said he hoped ‘that this mosque would help to remove all friction and strife and establish peace, amity and goodwill among men …’ (Review of Religions, November 1924).
Oct 20th to Nov 24th? We have to assume that the Khalifa was travelling from England to British India, no details are available however.
Intro Mirza Basheer-uddin Mahmud Ahmad is said to be worse than MGA when it came to women/men and his sexual desires, in fact, the Lahori-Ahmadi’s have commented on this topic extensively. Nevertheless, in 1924, the Khalifa’s second wife (Amtul Hai) had died mysteriously. The Khalifa had just came back from his tour to England, it is said that this wife of the Khalifa had been writing letters to newspapers and telling them how bad her husband really is. She (Amtul Hai) seems to have lived with the Khalifa’s first wife and mother in MGA’s home in Qadian (as well as wife #3). This 14-15 year old girl, Sara Begum (the Khalifa’s wife #4) seems to have also met Amtul Hai (the Khalifa’s wife #2) in 1923, in the Khalifa’s house, the Khalifa heard her speaking about how she read the Ahmadiyya newspapers and etc. Sara Begum’s father was Abdul Majid Bhagalpuri (Central India). Sara Begum would become the Khalifa’s 4th wife. Abdul Majid Bhagalpuri is totally unknown in Ahmadiyya history, he seems to have been a professor in Arabic somewhere in Baghalpur, the Khalifa was in Baghalpur for a Jalsa in 1923, which led to the engagement. In urdu, the Khalifa describes his marriage to this “bachee”, which means female child. The quote in the below is from Anwarul Aloom on 23 June 1933. “meri sarah” was also published in 27 June 1933, just 4 days later. His wife died on 27 june 1933 as quoted in Al-Fazl. Al-fazal of 16 May 1933, “Date and time of death: Sarah Begum Sahiba died on Saturday, 13 May 1933 at 1.45 pm. Sarah had went into labor on the same day 13 May 1933, a girl was born, and after about 2 and half hour, she died of heart failure, (her heart stopped) in them days real cause of death was not ascertained. In any case she died. Anwarul Aloom vol 13 page 94, 95 and 96, that is where he says “purpose of writing this article” that women should stay at home and serve the man, and not go out to work.
Who is Dr. Hashmatullah?
He accompanied the Khalifa to England in 1924. He was from Patiala. He seems to be the person who brokered the deal for the Khalifa to get married in this instance. Dr. Hashmatullah tells us that Sara Begum was a friend of of his own wife.
Why was the Khalifa talking about this subject?
The Khalifa had already had been speaking to a new potential wife in 1923, when he seems to have visited Bhaghulpur. The Khalifa was speaking to the young daughter (aged 14-15) of Maulana Abdul Majid Bhaghulpuri via letters.
The quote 1934
The quote typed out “”””Many girls are studying just for earning and employment, although the work of a woman is not employment. This trend of employment is one reminiscence from the cursed reminiscences of western culture. Islam has placed the responsibility of providing income on men.””””(Anwar ul Ulum, vol. 13; Meri Sarah, page 23).
Some additional quotes from this same era, most likely this same essay “…my own thought was turned towards this that to inculcate the habit of higher learning among women and to create a strong bond between them and the Organisation, I should marry a woman who should be educated and whom I could train to carry out the duties of education.”
“I have not forgotten my loss and to this day, I have not offered a single obligatory prayer in which I have not prayed for the late Amtul Hai…Seldom is there a soul who keeps alive the memory of the deceased. However, God has blessed me with loyalty and faithfulness…I believe that to keep alive the memory of the deceased is an edifying grief, a delightful sadness and a gratifying hardship. This grief is better than a thousand joys and this sadness better than a thousand delights. The pain of love is not a pain but an elixir. The pain of faithfulness does not burn rather it is like a kiln which cleanses the heart and leaves it shining and polished. And the soul of man becomes free of all impurities as it breathes at a superior blissful station where the air is remarkably pure and gentle. If I was not burdened with the leadership of a Community. If through foolishness or cleverness, I was not mindful of the progress of a small Community, far from marriage, the very idea and its thought would have been a blow for my wounded heart. But I am hopeful of the favours of Allah Almighty. “…I believe this (marriage) is also not a source of happiness for the other party. One cannot have high hopes from a man who is not very healthy, who is financially impoverished, who has no love for the world and whose first two wives
are alive…Therefore, I believe they are also making a sacrifice.” (See Fazl-e-Omar, online english edition, pages 219-220).
My Dear Brother Your esteemed letter was received,which spreads fragrance of enthusiasm for truth JAZAKALLAH. Prayers were made for your pious daughter. It is a blessing that she has memorized the holy Quran. Otherwise it is a rare thing in the women of this country. How lucky are her parents and the ones who would establish new relationship to you relating to her.
Wassalam Ghulam Ahmad 11th March, 1886
On 8th June, 1886 MGA sent another letter to Hakim Molvi Nuruddin elaborating his intentions with regard to third marriage and promised son. For the sake of brevity we reproduce only relevant portion as under:-
My Dear Brother, Four months back, it was revealed to this humble self that i will be blessed with a magnificent son whose name would be Bashir. I was mistaken to think that the promised son would be born of my present wife, but the excessive Ilham have now confirmed that Allah has decided that He will get me re-married to a third wife and bless the promised sone from this third wife. Two different women were motioned for this marriage, but as guided by Allah, both were rejected as one was a misfortunate and other was ugly, since Allah wanted the boy to be born of a woman perfect in piety and beauty.
Some blind critics raised objection as to why the promised son not born of previous pregnancy. What I understand is that the prophesy would materialize after third marriage. This third marriage is to take place shortly. To whom this marriage will take place, excessive Iham are taking place and storm like intensity is found in the intentions of god.
Mirza Ghulam Ahmad Qadian, 8th June 1886
MGA sent another letter on 20th June to Molvi Nuruddin, the contents of which suggest that Nuruddin did not like the idea of third marriage because there is a note of Irfani, the compiler of Maktubat e Ahmad, which confirms that perhaps Nuruddin disapproved MGA’s proposal for his daughter. Now read the letter and note of Irfani.
My Dear Brother,
Esteemed letter was received, this humble self had written to you of his third marriage just to inform a friend of the heavenly secrets, because it is the habit of this humble self that he informs of some of the Hidden orders (ghaibi amoor)to his friends to increase their faiths.
Since the revelation of ilham of third marriage, this humble self is praying for postponement of this order, but continuance of ilham prove that it has become a definite fate. (Taqdir e Mubram). This humble self has decided to avoid from doing this until a clear and categorical heavenly compulsion is received.
Wassalam- humble self
20th June 1886
Note by Shaikh Yaqub Ali Irfani :
Allah has given glad-tiding and signs for this third marriage to hazrat sb and he motioned it to his nears and dears who were far away from Allah although not deniers. Hazrat sb informed of these glade tidings to Hakim Nuruddin. As far as he (irfani) knows Hakim sb was ready to give his daughter in Nikah to MGA, in case if she was adult.
Now from such bizarre events, any impartial ahmadi, not only can judge as to what types of weak and fabricated revelations MGA mentions to have received, but also see the quick manoeuvrings he do which surely do not matches with that of a high moral character of a messenger of Allah.
