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. 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 Golrah Shrine.

Syed Abdul Latif, who was executed in July of 1903 had also accompanied MGA to Jhelum in January of 1903, this seems to be MGA’s first court appearance.

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. Years later in 1914, Khwaja Kamal ud Din would write that “problems were caused for the Promised Messiah by statements published from Qadian before the case without his knowledge”.

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].

He has given me good news and said:

656—[Arabic] I shall not leave a trace of anything which might be designed to humiliate you. [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].

(A) Today, in a vision, I was shown the following:

663—[Arabic] A detailed account of that which Allah did in this war after I had published the prophecy among people. [Publishers]

Thereafter my mind moved towards the reception of revelation and I was repeating these very words. This indicates that the prophecy made about the case beforehand would now be fulfilled in detail. [al-Badr, vol. 2, no. 1–2, January 23–30, 1903, p. 7 and al-Badr, vol. 2, no. 5, February 20, 1903, p. 36 and al-Hakam, vol. 7, no. 4, January 31, 1903, p. 15]

(B) I saw in my dream as if I was about to publish an article on the final result of Karam Din’s case against me and I wished to give it this heading:

664–[Arabic] The details of that which Allah did in this war after we had published the prophecy among people. They have drawn away from the water of life, then grind them down a fine grinding. [Publishers]

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, vol. 2, no. 24, July 3, 1903, p. 189 and al-Hakam, vol. 7, no. 24, June 30, 1903, p. 11].

in a way that will cause people to wonder. (C) [Arabic] The heavens and the earth were closed-up like a bundle and We opened them out, that is, the earth as well as the heavens demonstrated their full powers. (D) [Arabic]

Tell them: It is Allah Who has revealed these words; and then leave them occupied with their
sport. (E) That is [Arabic] They will ask you about your status—what is your honour and
status.731 Say: It is God Who has granted me this status; and then leave them indulging in
idle sport. (F) [Arabic] [No incongruity can you see in the creation of the Gracious One.]

On one occasion when I was in Gurdaspur in connection with a criminal case (that had been instituted against me by Karam Din of Jehlam), I received the revelation: [They will ask you
concerning your status.]… Thereafter when we appeared in court, the other side’s lawyer asked me the same question: Is your rank and status as you have described it in Tiryaqul-Qulub? I answered: Yes, by Allah’s grace that is my status; Allah has Himself bestowed it upon me.
In this manner the revelation which had come to me in the morning was fulfilled about the time of ‘Asr. [Haqiqatul-Wahi, pp. 265–266, Ruhani Khaza’in, vol. 22, pp. 277–278]

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].

(B) In the case brought against me by Maulavi Karam Din at Gurdaspur, Karam Din insisted that the word la’im meant bastard and that the word kazzab meant one who always tells lies. The court of first instance accepted his contention. In those days I received the revelation:

806—[Persian] We do not approve of any other meaning. [Publishers]

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]

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].

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.

Mirza Ghulam Ahmad’s poetry vs. Karam Din
See Durr-e-Sameen.  https://www.alislam.org/library/books/Durr-e-Sameen-English-Translation.pdf.  Pages 86 and 94

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)

Mirza Ghulam Ahmad lost his court case vs. Karam din 1904, but won on appeal

Intro
MGA lost one court case against him in his career. It is the case of MGA vs. Karam ud Din. 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 Golrah Shrine.

Syed Abdul Latif, who was executed in July of 1903 had also accompanied MGA to Jhelum in January of 1903, this seems to be MGA’s first court appearance.

Who is Syed Abdul Latif?

Intro
Via the 1984 english translation of “Tadhkiratu-Shahadatain”(1903)–English translation, his name is spelled as Hazrat Sahibzada Sayyad Abdul Latif, he also calls him as Maulvi Abdul Latif, Sahibzada Maulvi Abdul Latif Sahib Shaheed,  Maulvi Sahibzada Abdul Latif, Sahibzada Maulvi Abdul Latif, Abdul Latif and Sahibzada Maulavi Muhammad Abdul Latif.

Chiragh Ali was the first Muslim ever to claim that Esa (as) was actually hung (salaboohoo)(1876)–Mirza Ghulam Ahmad copied

Intro
Muslims had always believed that Esa (as) was never technically hung on the cross (Salaboohoo). However, during British occupation, especially after the mutiny of 1857, the British wanted Muslims to give up hope for a savior (a messiah and mahdi). Thus, Sir Syed Ahmad Khan was their first agent. At the Aligarh College and through his magazine, “Tehzeeb-ul-Akhlaq”, he published alternative Muslim perspectives, written in plain language. It gave voice to the publisher’s religious, social, and reforming opinions, and is credited with establishing him as one of the fathers of Urdu fiction. The same journal was restarted by Syed Hamid Vice-chancellor of Aligarh Muslim University in 1981; and since then it is being published regularly. There is now a separate office of Tehzeeb-ul-Ikhlaq.

Nevertheless, in 1876, in Tehzeeb-ul-Ikhlaq, Moulví Chiragh Ali (1844-1895), was the first Muslim to ever claim that Esa (as) was actually hung on the cross. MGA was reading these magazines and copied almost all of the arguments. In the BA4 he began denying the miracles of Esa (As)..by 1891, he rejected everything that Esa (as) did and belittled him. By 1894, MGA began calling him an alcoholic and etc. By 1902, MGA was claiming to be greater than Esa (as)(naozobillah).

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

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

In Khwaja’s book, he didn’t talk about the hadith specifically, however, we know that this is the famous hadith from Muslim and Ibn Majah (when they refer to the 2 angels).
Continue reading “Mirza Ghulam Ahmad claimed that Noorudin and Muhammad Ahsan Amrohi were the 2 angels that he descended with”

Who is the angel Tichi Tichi?

Intro
In 1905, MGA had a revelation of his published in his newspaper the Al-Badr wherein he described meeting an angel named Tichi Tichi. By 1907, MGA gave an explanation of this incident via Haqiqatul Wahy. However, this issue still haunts Ahmadi’s to this day. This is an embarrassing event in the history of Ahmadiyya. There were other strange angels who interacted with MGA, like Mithal Lal and some others.

“”””””””””March 3, 1905
On the night prior to Friday March 3, 1905, at 1:35 a.m. I saw in my dream that I was facing lack of money and other great difficulties and was very anxious. I asked someone to draw up an Income and Expenditure Statement but no one paid any heed to what I had said. I saw someone who was preparing a statement of accounts and I recognised him as Lachhmi Das, who was at one time Accounts Clerk in the Treasury at Sialkot. I tried to call him but he too did not come and ignored me. I felt that there was a large shortfall and there seems to be no way to make it up. In the meanwhile, I saw a righteous person of simple mien, simply clad who poured a handful of money into my lap and left so quickly that I could not even ask his name. But there was still a shortfall. Then another righteous person came whose face was lit up and who was also of simple appearance and who resembled a sufi of Kotla, who is probably named Karam Ilahi or Fadl Ilahi. He gave us some money by selling his shirt. He had the appearance of a human being but he seemed to belong to a different creation. He filled both his hands with money and poured it into my lap. This made a lot of money. I inquired his name and he said: What is there in a name? I have no name. I urged him to tell me his name and he said: Tichi. I was deeply moved that there are people in our Jama‘at who contribute so generously and do not disclose their names. Then I said: He was not a man. He was an angel. When I saw a lot of money in front of me, I said: Out of it, I shall give to Manzur Muhammad’s wife, for she is in need. It was 1:35 a.m. when I saw this dream.””

“”147. [One Hundred Forty-Seventh] Sign—Once in March 1905, owing to sparse income, the budgetary position of the Langar Khanah [Community Kitchen] was rather lean; guests were coming in multitudes but its income was comparatively meagre. Therefore, supplication was made. On 5 March 1905, I saw in a dream that a person who appeared to be an angel, came in front of me and put a large sum of money in my lap. I asked his name. He said there was no name. I said he must have some name after all. He said his name was Tichi. In Punjabi, tichi means ‘appointed time’ or ‘the one who comes exactly at the time of need’. Thereupon I woke up.
After that, by God’s grace, monetary donations poured in by post and by hand in such great abundance as was beyond expectation and imagination. Thousands of rupees were received. Anyone interested inverifying this only has to review the postal record from 5 March 1905
through the end of the year; he will see how much money was received. It should be borne in mind that this is the way of God Almighty with me that most of the time He informs me beforehand through revelation or dream when I am about to receive cash or presents etc. Signs of this kind must number more than 50,000.”””

“Tuhfa-e-Baghdad” (A Gift for Baghdad), quotes and background info (1893)

Intro
This book was published at Munshi Maulvi Ghulam Qadir Fasih’s printing press, which was called the Punjab Press, Sialkot. MGA’s other arabic books, “Shahadatul Quran”, “Anwarul Islam” “Karamatus-Sadiqun” and “Hamamatul Bushra” were also published from there. These were all published in 1893-1894, back-to-back. 5 Arabic books, these were all published after Noorudin moved to Qadian and began living with MGA.

When MGA made his wild claims (1889 –1891), he also claimed to have been accepted in Arabia, Egypt and other arab lands. However, these were all the exaggerations of MGA and his team, they did this in terms of marketing, since no one could verify this support. Nevertheless, we have found a contemporary scholar from Baghdad, Al Syed Abdul Razzaq Qadri , who was staying at Hyderabad Deccan India, he seems to have read the book Aina Kamalat e Islam by MGA, but then gave the book back to its owner. The heretic expressions and false claims of MGA as mentioned in the book made him angry and shocked. In June 1893 he wrote letters to MGA calling him a liar, heretic and liable to be put to death with a sharp sword or killed by burning in the fire, a punishment for heretics. He asked MGA to send him a copy of the book so that he may write a comprehensive reply to what has been stated by MGA in AKI. In response to his letters, MGA did not send the book to him but wrote him a detailed reply comprising mostly of irrelevant personal glorification tall claims and flattery in arabic language. Most parts of arabic text include Quraanic verses and ahadis not having much relevance to the topic. Later on, in 1893 this reply of MGA was published in the shape of a 33 paged book titled as TOHFA E BAGHDAD. In the opening lines Mirza states he would respond to Abdul Razzaq Baghdadi in a civilized manner. However, towards the end of his letter his abusive language overpowered him and he used foul and obnoxious language. This is a short 33 page booklet in Arabic by MGA and his team.

Quotes

Tuhfa-e-Baghdad, pp. 17-20, Ruhani Khaza’in, vol. 7, p. 21-23, Via Tadhkirah

“”(Arabic): I shall humiliate him who designs to humiliate you. We shall suffice against your scoffers. O Ahmad, God has blessed you. You did not let loose but it was Allah who let loose so that you should warn a people whose ancestors have not been warned and that the way of the
guilty ones might become manifest. Say: I have been commissioned and I am the first of believers. Proclaim: The truth has arrived and falsehood has vanished, falsehood always vanishes away. Every blessing is from Muhammad, may peace and blessings of Allah be upon him, then blessed is he who taught and he who has been taught. Say: If I have invented it, the sin of it is on me. They plan and Allah plans and Allah is the Best of planners. He it is who has sent His Messenger with guidance and the religion of truth so as to make it prevail over every religion. There is no changing the words of Allah. I am with you so be you with Me wherever you might be. Be with Allah wherever you might be. Whatever direction might face there is the countenance of Allah. You are the best people raised for the good of mankind and a source of pride for the believers. Despair not of the mercy of Allah. Hearken, the mercy of Allah is near. Hearken, the help of Allah is near. It will come to you from every distant track. Allah will help you from Himself. Men will help you whom We shall direct from heaven. There is no changing the words of Allah. Today you are in a position of high standing and trust with Us. They will say: ‘This is all his own invention’. Say: Allah is the Source of all this; and then leave them being beguiled by their sport. And who is more unjust than one who invents a lie against Allah? My mercy is on you in matters of the world as well as of faith. You are of those who are helped.””

Good news to you, O My Ahmad, you are My purpose and with Me. I have planted the tree of your honour with My own hand. Is this a matter for wonder for the people? Say: Allah is Wonderful, He chooses whom He wills from among His creatures. He is not called to account for what He does but they are called to account. These are days that We revolve between the people. When Allah helps a believer He makes many envious of him. Deal kindly with people and have mercy on them. You are among them in the position of Musa [Moses]. Then be steadfast under the oppression of the oppressors. Do people imagine that they should be left alone to say: ‘We have believed’; and that they should not be tried? Here is a trial, then be steadfast as those of high resolve were steadfast. Beware, it is a trial from Allah so that He might love you with a great love. Allah will bestow upon you your full reward and your Lord will be pleased with you and will perfect your name. They only mock you. Say: I am one of the truthful; then wait for My Signs for a while. All praise belongs to Allah, Who has made you the Masih Ibn-e-Maryam [Messiah, son of Mary]. Announce: This is the grace of Allah and I eschew every kind of title. I am one of the Muslims. They desire to put out the light of Allah with the breath of their mouths but Allah will perfect His light and will revive the faith. We intend to send down to you Signs from heaven and to scatter your enemies completely. The command of Allah the Gracious, for the vicegerent of Allah who is invested with authority. Then put your trust in Allah and construct the ark under Our supervision and direction. Those who enter into a covenant with you enter into a covenant with Allah; Allah’s hand is above their hands. There are many groups who have become deserving of punishment. They plan and Allah is the Best of planners. Say: I have with me proof from Allah, then will you believe? Say: I have with me proof from Allah, then will you submit? My Lord is with me, He will show me the way. Lord, show me how You do revive the dead. Lord, forgive and show mercy from heaven. Lord, leave me not alone and You are the Best of heirs. Lord, reform the people of Muhammadsa. Our Lord, judge between us and our people with truth. You are the Best of Judges.
They try to frighten you with others than Him. You are under Our care. I have named you Mutawakkil [the one who trusts in God]. Allah praises you from His Throne. We praise you and send down blessings on you. O Ahmad your name will come to an end but My name will not come to an end. Be in the world as if you are a stranger or a traveller. Be of the righteous and the faithful. I have chosen you and have poured My love over you. Hold fast to Unity, to Unity, O children of Faris [Persia]. Give good tidings to those who have believed that they have a standing of truth with their Lord. Do not turn away from Allah’s creatures and be not tired of people and deal kindly with the Muslims. The Company of the Lounge, and how would know what the Company of the Lounge is? You see their eyes streaming with tears. They call down blessings
on you: Our Lord, we have heard a crier calling to the faith. Our Lord, we have believed, then write us down among the witnesses. Wondrous is your standing and near is your reward. With you are
the hosts of the heavens and of the earth. You are to Me like My Unity and My Uniqueness. The time has come that you should be helped and be recognised among people. Blessed are you, O
Ahmad, and deserving of the blessing that Allah has bestowed on you. You have a high standing in My Presence. I have chosen you for Myself and you have a standing with Me of which people have no notion. Allah would not leave you till He separates the unclean from the clean. Look at Yusuf [Joseph] and his glory. Allah is supreme over His commands, but most people know it not. I
decided to appoint a vicegerent and created Adam so that he might establish the law and revive the faith. The book of [My] friend is the Dhulfaqar [sword] of ‘Ali. If faith had ascended to the Pleiades a man from among Abna-e-Faris [children of Persia] would have brought it down. Its oil would well-nigh glow forth even though no fire were to touch it. The Champion of Allah in the mantle of Messengers. Say: If you love Allah, then follow me, Allah will then love you. Call down blessings on Muhammad and the people of Muhammad, the Chief of all mankind and the Seal of the Prophets. Allah will have mercy on you and will safeguard you Himself even if men will not safeguard you. Allah will safeguard you Himself even if no one from the dwellers of the earth will safeguard you. Ruined are the two hands of Abu Lahab and ruined is he. It did not behove him to enter into this affair but in fear. Whatever befalls you is from Allah and know that the end is for the righteous. Warn your near relatives. We shall show them a Sign from among our Signs in the matter of the widow and shall return her to you. This has been settled from Our side and We shall certainly do it. They used to reject Our Signs as false and were of the scoffers. Good tidings to you on the marriage. The truth is from your Lord, then be not of the doubters. We have married her to you. There is no changing the words of Allah. We shall return her to you. Your Lord surely accomplishes that which He determines upon. This is grace from Us so that it should be a Sign for the beholders. Two goats will be slaughtered and all that are upon the earth are mortal. We shall show them Our Signs in the universe and in their own selves, and shall show them the punishment of the disobedient. When the help of Allah comes and the victory and the age turns to us, it will be asked: Is this not the truth? Those who have disbelieved are in patent error. I was a hidden treasure and liked to be known. The heavens and the earth were a solid mass and We
split them asunder. Say: I am but a human being, it is revealed to me that your God is One God and that all good is contained in the Qur’an, to the deeper meaning of which only the pure can
penetrate. I have lived a whole life among you before this, then do you not understand? Say: The only true guidance is the guidance of Allah and my Lord is with me. He will show me the way. Lord, forgive and show mercy from heaven. Lord, I am overcome, do You avenge me. My Lord, my Lord, why have you forsaken me? O ‘Abdul-Qadir I am with you, hearing and seeing. I have planted the tree of My mercy and My power for you with My own hand and today you have with Us a high rank and a position of trust. I am your inevitable recourse. I shall revive you. I have breathed into you the spirit of righteousness from Myself. I have poured My love on you so that you might be nurtured under My care like a seed that puts forth its sprout, then makes it strong; it then becomes thick and stands firm on its stem. We have bestowed upon you a clear victory so that Allah might wipe out your previous and subsequent weaknesses. Then be of the grateful. Is not Allah Sufficient for His servant? Is not Allah aware of those who are grateful? Allah has accepted His servant and has cleared him from what they alleged and he has a high standing in the estimation of Allah. When his Lord manifested Himself on the mountain He broke it into bits and Allah will frustrate the plans of the disbelievers. So that We might make him a Sign for the people and a mercy from Ourself and so that We might bestow upon him glory from Ourself and thus do We reward those who do good. You are with Me and I am with you. Your secret is My secret, the secrets of the friends of Allah cannot be numbered. You are based on clear truth, of high standing in the world and in the hereafter and of those who are close to Allah. A foolish one recognises only the fatal blow. He is My enemy and your enemy, he is like a calf with an inanimate body from which proceeds a meaningless sound. Say: The command of Allah is approaching, so do not be of those who are in a hurry. The moon of the Prophets will come to you and your affair will become manifest. It is incumbent upon Us to help the believers.** So on the day the truth arrives and will be laid open and the losers will suffer loss and will see the neglectful fallen into prostration and supplicating: Lord forgive us, we were in error. No blame is laid upon you today. May Allah forgive you and He is the Most Merciful of those who show mercy. You will die and I will be pleased with you. Peace be on you, you have proven sincere and fortunate. Then enter therein with security. “””

The Pagham-e-Sulh of July 1914 proves that even the Qadiani-Ahmadi’s were unsure how to categorize MGA’s prophethood immediately after the split

Intro
The Lahori-Ahmadi’s have always accused the Qadiani-Ahmadi’s of not properly understanding the prophethood of MGA. Well, the reason was, it was a new type of prophethood which had never existed before, since the Quran indirectly told us that all prophethood was law-bearing only. In fact, MGA argued over and over from 1891 to 1901 that an Ummati could never become a Nabi, he said that they were anithetical. However, after “Correction of an Error” (Eik Ghalti Ka Izala)(published in Nov. 1901 as an announcement), MGA began asserting that he discovered that an Ummati can become a Nabi. However, this is against the Quran. In 1890-91, in Izala Auham (see the refs in the below), MGA argued over and over again that a prophet could never be a follower of another prophet. MGA and his team of writers quoted the Quran, 4:64 (4:65 in the Ahmadi Quran) as evidence. In fact, in the same book, MGA claims that his God called him an Ummati and Nabi in the Barahin i Ahmadiyya (about 7-10 years earlier), however, he didn’t give the exact reference. In the same year (1891 in Delhi, see the announcement here), MGA published an announcement to the effect that anyone who claims to be a prophet is a Kafir, obviously, MGA only meant a prophet like all the prophets mentioned in the Quran (independent-prophets). However, 10 years later, after the publishing of ‘Eik Ghalti Ka Izala”, Nov. 1901, MGA and his team totally abandoned this view. They claim that MGA discovered that an Ummati can become a Prophet (see Haqiqatun Nubuwwat by Mirza Mahmud Ahmad and Qaul al Fasl {1915}, see also Qazi Muhammad Nazeer, 1966, “Truth Prevails”), he also claimed to be greater and better than Esa (as) in this exact time frame. The other important fact to understand here is that all 124,000 prophets that were mentioned in the Quran were “independent” prophets, in others words, Allah made them prophets and they only followed the will of Allah and they all had the ability to create new laws and abrogate old ones. The prophethood that MGA discovered in 1901, never existed in the Quran, Torah or Bible, since all of those prophets were “independent”. By 1903, MGA said that only he was allowed this title of Nabi in the entire Ummah (See RK, v. 20, p. 45; starts at approximately middle of the page; Tadhkirah-tush-Shahaadatayn; published 1903). At the end of 1905, in “The Will”, MGA claims that some Muslims (he was only speaking about himself) have been able to become Ummati and Nabi (see English ROR of Jan. 1906). In 1906-07, in Haqiqatul Wahy, MGA again asserted that he was both an Ummati and a Nabi, and he was the only one the entire ummah of Muhammad to achieve this. After MGA died (Ocotober of 1908), in the Barahin-i-Ahmadiyya Vol. 5, Noorudin wrote that MGA was always an Ummati and had become a Nabi. After the split of March 1914, Muhammad Ali wrote “Prophethood in Islam” (March 1915) and ripped the Qadiani belief that MGA was an Ummati-Nabi.
_____________________________________________________________________________________________

After the split of March-1914

In the Review of Religions of June 1914, Mirza Bashir Ahmad (the younger brother) has described being only a Mujaddid of the 14th century as the mission of MGA.
_____________________________________________________________________________________________

The letter

In a letter addresses to Muhammad Usman of Lucknow

The Qadiani-Khalifa, Mirza Basheer ud Din Mahmud Ahmad wrote: 

“I want to tell you this about prophethood that all ahmadis regard the Pm as an honorary prophet(or the shadow of a prophet). But, as people have degraded the Promised Messiah from his real position nowadays, hence it has become expedient to inform the community about his high rank. Otherwise I myself do not like to use the word prophet so casually or commonly. Not, because he was not a sort of prophet, but by the common use of this word people may not in course of time come to consider Mirza Ghulam Ahmad as a permanent full-fledged prophet.  So my use of the word is for a limited period and is remedial in nature.””

A photostat of this was published in the Pagham-sulh 16 August 1914

The 1914 Qadiani-Ahmadi Jalsa at Qadian

Intro
This was the first Jalsa of the Qadiani branch of Ahmadiyya after Mirza Basheer ud Din Mahmud Ahmad became Khalifa. Not much is known of this Jalsa, we only know that 600 converts to Ahmadiyya were reported (which was a lie). The Qadiani-Ahmadi Jamaat has not even archived the number of people that attended. The Khalifa’s lectures during this Jalsa seem to be recorded and available in english, see here. The Khalifa mentioned the building of the minaret, which had been stopped after 1903, since all the money had went missing. It seems to have been re-started after this Jalsa.

The Lahori-Ahmadi’s and Khwaja Kamaluddin wrote their famous “Ikhtalayfaat-e-Silsilaa-e-Ahmadiyya kay Usbaab” (The Causes of Internal Dissensions in the Ahmadiyya Movement) and had it published by 12-24-1914 and available for all Qadiani’s to purchase from Lahore it seems. Interestingly, the census of 1911 reported 18,965 Ahmadi’s just in the Punjab, however, many illiterate Muslims of India must have accidentally checked the wrong box. Furthermore, the census of 1901 reported 10,000 Ahmadi in the Bombay area only, which was manifestly inaccurate.
