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.

(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].

(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.

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.

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].

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.

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].

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).

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).

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.  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)
From the Review of Religions–Jan 1903, (english version)

MGA gives lots of revelations claiming that his enemies will be defeated.  MGA also claimed to have seen Gabriel for the first time ever.

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

17 August 1903: The Promised Messiahas embarked on his journey towards Gurdaspur, after saying Zuhr and Asr prayers in congregation. The purpose behind this was to attend the hearing of a lawsuit filed by Karam Din. Hazrat Mirza Bashiruddin Mahmud Ahmadra was also part of the entourage. Hazrat Ahmadas made a night-stay in Batala in an inn situated near the railway station. Dusk and night prayers were offered there in congregation.

20 August 1903: The Promised Messiahas arrived back in Qadian from Gurdaspur from the aforementioned journey.

Mirza Ghulam Ahmad only lost one court case in his entire life. This was the case of 1903–1905.  It was in terms of defamation. In 1899, MGA was ordered to never call anyone Kazzab or Kafir ever again.  Well, it seems that MGA was accused of exactly that in 1903 by Karam–ud-Din.  Further, this was the first case wherein the judge was not a European, the judge was Hindu, and he even refused to give MGA a chair to sit on (see Mahmud Ahmad, “Hazrat Ahmad”, 1998 edition, online, see pages 46-51).  In fact, in 1904, MGA was found guilty and was supposed to be taken into custody, however, his bail was paid and MGA was released.  MGA’s legal team then fought the case on appeal, wherein the case went before a European judge, who promptly vindicated MGA (see RoR, pages 39-40, Jan-1905 edition, online).

Muhammad Ali’s testimony
Interestingly enough, Muhammad Ali was called to the stand to testify about MGA and his book, Tiryaq ul Qulub, Muhammad Ali and MGA said on oath that MGA’s beliefs hadnt changed since the writing of TQ.  Which was an obvious lie, since we all know he claimed prophethood in 1901….and thus his entire claim changed.

The reference from Haqiqatul way wherein MGA mentions this case
“Sign no. 118.  I was staying in Gurdaspur in connection with a criminal case (brought against me by Karam Din of Jhelum).  I received a revelation: “You will be questioned about your rank and dignity.  Say.  Allah has bestowed this rank on me; and leave them in their sport”.  I related this revelation to my companions who were not less than forty in number including Maulvi Muhammad Ali and Khwaja Kamalu-ud-Din.  Later, we went into the court where the counsel for the complainant asked the same question.  “is your rank and dignity the same as has been written in Tiryaq-ul-Qulub?  I replied: “Yes; it is so by the grace of Allah”.  (Haqiqat al-Wahy, pp. 265-266).  (also see Muhammad Ali, “Heresy in Islam”, online 1995 english edition).

Lecture Ludhiana also mentions the Karam Din Case
See pages 31-32



In my dream I said to Maulvi Muhammad Ali (Urdu): You were also righteous and meant well, come and sit down with us (Badr Vol. III, No. 29, Aug. 1, 1904, p. 4).


(a) Revelation (Arabic): We have softened for you, the iron (Persian): We do not approve of any other meaning (AlHakam, Vol. VIII, No. 17, May 24, 1904, p. 2).

“””(b) In the case brought against me by Karam Din at Gurdaspur, Karam Din insisted that the word laeen 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 (Persian): We do not approve of the other meaning; which I understood 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 laeen and kazzab were appropriate for Karam Din, who was deserving of even worse.”” (Haqeegat-ul-Wahi p. 380).


“”In Karam Din’s case against me Atma Ram, Magistrate, 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 Movement and 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 honorably 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, Atma Ram’s order was set aside and the Appellate Court rebuked him for an improper order, but Karam Din was convicted and punished and the judgment of the court confirmed his being a liar”” (Haqeeqatul-Wahi pp. 121-122).

Zafrullah Khan’s comments

This is from Zafrullah Khan’s book about his mother


“””Some time thereafter he(HIS FATHER) was summoned to appear as a defence witness in the court of a Magistrate at Gudaspur in a criminal case in which Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad, Founder of the Ahmadiyyah Movement, was being tried for defamation of one Maulvi
Karam Deen, one of his bitter and virulent opponents. This afforded him an opportunity of meeting the illustrious personage and he was much impressed with his gracious personality and his very high spirituality. He was now studying the Movement earnestly, had become a regular subscriber to the weekly Al-Hakam and started attending the daily lesson of the Holy Quran given by Maulvi Abdul Karim, an eminent disciple and devoted companion of the Promised Messiah. He had at no time been opposed to the Movement, but he possessed a deliberate temperament and made up his mind after careful and deep reflection.””

What is “Hujaj-ul-Kiramah” by Nawab Siddiq Hassan Khan of Bhopal?

Hujaj-ul-Kiramah was a book written by the one of the founders of the “Ahl-e-Hadith” sect of Muslims in northern India.  Nawab Siddiq Hassan Khan was married to the Queen of Bhopal, who gave lots of money to MGA for the creation of the Braheen e Ahmadiyya Series.  In roughly 1884, Nawab Siddiq Hassan Khan tore up MGA’s Braheen e Ahmadiyya book and sent it to Qadian in that state, Nawab Siddiq Hassan Khan was dead by 1890.  Later in 1907, MGA claimed that he died abruptly as a result of disrespecting MGA’s book (See Haqiqatul Wahy).  He seems to have written Hujaj ul Kiramah in late 1883 or early 1884, see ROR May-1908.

Some of his main followers joined MGA
Maulvi Muhammad Ahsan Amrohi, who was also a member of the Ahl-e-Hadith sect, in fact, uptil his job with MGA, he worked for the founders of the Ahl-e-Hadith sect, Syed Nazeer Husain from Delhi and Siddiq Hasan Khan of Bhopal.  Ahsan Amrohi was an imam under Siddiq Hassan Khan until he died in roughly 1890, he was immediately hired by MGA.

1891—After Nawab Siddiq Hassan Khan died
MGA and his team wrote “Nishan Ismani” (Heavenly Sign in english) and published it in the early part of 1892.  They quoted him extensively in terms of the Mahdi.

MGA and his team write, “Haqiqatul Mahdi” (the reality of the Mahdi), they quote Nawab Hassan Khan extensively.  This was a short book which compared the beliefs of the Ahl-e-Hadith vs. MGA.


(Hijajul Kiramah, page 64, (See ROR, May–1908)

“””He (the Mahdi) will fight battles, and draw treasures, conquer city after city and subjugate the whole world, from East to West.  The Kings of India will be brought to his presence with chains round their necks””””

“”I say there is no monarch in India at present ; there are only some chiefs, Hindu or Muhammadan, but they are not independent  rulers, nay, they are only rulers in name.  The great rulers of this country are Europeans and probably will remain the rulers till that time, and therefore they shall be brought into his presence, or it may be that by that time the rule of some other monarch may be established here”””

“Eye witness account of sahibzada Abdul Latif” by Syed Ahmad Noor Kabuli (1921)

One of my “Ahmadiyya-Research-Team” friends in the UK recently found a book titled “Shaheed Marhoom Ke Chashm deed waqiat” Part 1 and 2, (Eye witness account of sahibzada Abdul Latif”). This book is written by his beloved student, Syed Ahmad Noor Kabuli, who also took Baiyat of MGA and subsequently claimed himself to be a prophet. The plain reading of book gives us an impression that Abdul Latif was not mentally sound person.  This Syed Ahmad Noor Kabuli eventually claimed prophethood and was most likely ex-communicated by the Khalifa.  Syed Ahmad Noor Kabuli admitted that he was drinking the water dripping from mirza ghulam coffin.  Apparently, as MGA’s coffin was being transported from Ahmadiyya buildings in Lahore to the train station, Ahmadi’s had put ice in MGA’s coffin to keep his body from smelling and etc.  As Ahmadi’s were escorting the coffin of MGA through the streets of Lahore, many people began throwing feces at the motorcade, it was a huge scene.  Syed Ahmad Noor Kabuli still drank the ice water that was oozing out of MGA’s coffin.  This book was published on December 26th, 1921.

Everyone in British-India wrote that MGA died of cholera
It is important to note that MGA even said that he thought he had cholera, as reported by his father-in-law, Mir Nasir Nawab.  Many newspapers and independent researchers wrote the same.  Noorudin, the new Khalifa was faced with this issue early on and told Ahmadi’s that even if MGA did die of cholera, death by cholera was considered martydom in his version of Islam.

Some additional data on Syed Abdul Latif


Here is the summary of this short book, written by a friend

“Abdul Latif lived in a village called Syedgah near Khost Afganistan. He was a friend of governor of the area who pays him remuneration for livelihood. Amir of Kabul has also fixed his remuneration at Rs 1100/- He had 4 wives and 18 children.

He was a negotiator on behalf of Amir e Kabul to decide borders of afghanistan with the British. When he was busy in negotiations with Britishers some one gave him a book of MGA. He was very happy to receive this book and offered reward to the doner of book. He read and liked the book and told his colleague that this is the man whom the world was waiting for. Now he has come.

At first, Molvi Abdul Latif thought Allah would select him for the job of reformer because there was none like him, but now after reading MGA’s book he come to know that god has sent the reformer. He then sent some of his students to Qadian to see the Masih e Moud as to who and how is he? Some student after visiting MGA in Qadian cast doubts on him but abdul latif said you are wrong in your doubts, this man is a true Masih. Then he sent Molvi Abdul Rehman his close friend, to MGA with gifts, dresses and Baiyat letter. Abdul Rehman stayed in Qadian and returned with MGA’s book for Mullah Abdul Latif.

After two or three months Abdul Latif sought permission from Amir e Kabul for Hajj. Amir e Kabul has been pleased to allow and gifted him many horses, camels and cash for Hajj expenditures. Instead of going to Makkah, he reached Qadian via Khost and Bannu. He stayed there for many months. He used to go on walk with Masih e Moud, and do not remove dust from his cloths till Hazrat sb (MGA) does so.

He received many ilham. Once while he was sleeping in guest room, suddenly got up and said Muhammad s.a.w. has been laid over me like a fabric sheet and has entered into me in such way that he s.a.w. can not be separated from me and then he received ilham meaning His s.a.w. body is of Noor, fragrance like pearl and this noor is under my control. (Nauzubillah).

Once while coming back from walk Molvi Abdul latif said to me (the author ANK), have you seen your father coming behind you. I said he had died long ago. He said no he was there. Once after walk he came to us and told that a Beautifully dressed HOOR from Jannah came to me and said have a look on me, I said no I would not look to you till Masih e Moud is before me. The author (ANK) claims that he had some ahmadi JIN in his possession, when he was imprisoned, these Ahmadi JINN offered him to destroy the city of Kabul for his release from Jail but he did not accept their offer.

His six months leave was over and he started preparation to leave for Kabul. When he left Qadian, hazrat sb (MGA) accompanied him about 1.5 miles. While parting, Molvi Abdul Latif fell on MGA’s feet and holding on to his feet, started crying and saying pray for me. Hazrat sb said ok I will pray for you but leave my feet first. Molvi Abdul Latif said no He would not leave the feet. Hazrat sb said this is my order and order is above the respect. Then he released the feet of Hazrat sb.

On way to Kabul few Chakralvi came to talk to him of MGA he said he is Ahmadi. But he calls himself Ghulam Ahmad the chakralvi replied. Molvi Abdul Latif said don’t call him Ghulam Ahmad because if you call him Ghulam Ahmed then he would become Syed and meaning Chief and chief is the servant of his tribe.

He said god has made the person of Muhammad Arabi s.a.w. And Ahmad Qadiani one and the same (Nauzubillah) so I swear upon god in whose hand is my soul I saw Muhammad and Ahmad in one person. (Nauzubillah) then he said he has destroyed himself so much in Masih e maoud that my person and person of Muhammad has become same and that the person of Muhammad has become inseparable from mine. (Nauzubillah).

He came back to Khost and started Tabligh of ahmadiyyat, wrote many letters to eminent peoples of area. The news reached Amir of Kabul who put up the case before Ulema. He was offered to repent which he denied and said he want it to be finished soon. So he was sentenced stoning to death. While few stones were pelted on him he was again offered to repent but he refused it again.

He was stoned in a hindoo cremation area, His dead body was recovered by the author and buried in a graveyard inside Kabul. But because of Shirk related gatherings at his grave the government removed the body remnants from there and were disposed of in a river.

Who is Mir Muhammad Ishaq (1890–1944)? The brother-in-law of MGA

Mir Muhammad Ishaq was the son of Mir Nasir Nawab, and younger brother of Nusrat Jehan Begum and Dr. Mir Muhammad Isma’il.  His date of birth is Sept 8th, 1890 in Ludhiana.  which is recorded in Nuzul ul Masih (published in 1909).  Per Ahmadiyya sources, he had totally moved to Qadian by 1894.  He lived with MGA until MGA died in 1908, he even claims to have watched MGA lead prayers for the women of the house many times, whilst standing on MGA’s side, women weren’t allowed in the mosques in Qadian in those days, he lived in this very mansion until he died in 1944.  He even accompanied MGA on his tours of Delhi, Ludhiana, Lahore and Gurdaspur in the era of 1903–1905.  At times, he even acted as MGA’s scribe, as he helped to write responses to letters and other various administrative tasks around the house at Qadian.  Ahmadiyya sources tell us that he was never scared to fight non-Ahmadi’s.  In fact, in the 1920–1930’s, he was involved in many fist-fights between Ahmadi’s and Non-Ahmadi’s (see 18:00 of this video).  He died on March 17, 1944 at age 54(see Tadhkirah, 2009 online edition, page 721).

His children
His eldest daughter was Sahibzadi Naseerah Begum.  His maternal great grand son was Sahibzada Mirza Ghulam Ahmad aka Mirza Sa’eed Ahmad.  Sahibzada Mirza Ghulam Ahmad aka Mirza Sa’eed Ahmad married Mirza Masroor Ahmad’s sister.

It is unclear whether or not he attended the Talim ul Islam Kids school at Qadian.  No Ahmadiyya sources give this indication.  However, he was living with MGA, and both of his siblings and his father.  The whereabouts of his mother are unknown.

In 1909, Nuzul ul Masih is published and mentions a terrible dream that MGA saw about Mir Muhammad Ishaq and his mother (see Tadhkirah, page 264).  Ahmadiyya sources claim that this book was written in 1902.  This exact story was initially published in Haqiqatul Wahy, (see online english edition).

He accompanied MGA on his tours of Delhi, Ludhiana, Lahore and Gurdaspur.  Ishaq remembers how MGA was denied a chair in the court of this Hindu judge.

Mir Muhammad Ishaq’s name is mentioned in the Ahmadiyya newspaper, Al-Badr.  He is referred to as Miyyan Muhammad Ishaq and he was sick, wherein MGA claims to have prayed for him and cured him miraculously (See 2009 online edition of Tadhkirah, pages 720-722), (see also, [al-Hakam, vol. 9, no. 18, May 24, 1905, p. 1; Badr, vol. 1, no. 7, May 18, 1905, p. 5] and [al-Hakam, vol. 9, no. 18, May 24, 1905, p. 1; Badr, vol. 1, no. 7, May 18, 1905, p. 1]).  

February of 1906
He is married at age 16 to Salihah Bibi, daughter of Sahibzadah Pir Manzur Muhammad (see the 2009 online edition of Tadhkirah english, pages 789-790.  Noorudin read the wedding ceremony.  Al-Badr and Al-Hakam also published this news.  Pir Manzur Muhammad was the son of Sufi Ahmad Jan.  Noorudin and him were brother-in-laws.

He helped MGA in writing down many signs which appeared in Haqiqatul Wahy.  He also walked with MGA around Qadian whenever needed.  In Haqiqatul Wahy, Sign #143 is about MIr Muhammad Ishaq, MGA also disgraced or talked bad about Ishaq’s mother (MGA’s mother-in-law), MGA accused her of allowing an enemy into MGA’s house (the enemy was Dr. Abdul Hakim Khan of Patiala.  MGA also claims that Tumours appeared on his groin on both
sides, and it became certain that it was plague, as plague had broken out in some villages of this district (see Haqiqatul Wahy, online english edition, pages 411-413).

1906–The Sadr Anjuman is created
In the lifetime of MGA, Mir Muhammad Ishaq’s elder brother is placed into the Sadr Anjuman as a voting member, even though he is busy working as an assistant Surgeon.  Mir Nasir Nawab is not made a member.

May 26th, 1908
He supported the Khilafat of Noorudin.

Early January of 1909
After the first Jalsa without MGA present, rumblings were coming from the members of the Sadr Anjuman to the effect that the “Khalifa” position was equal to the body of the Sadr Anjuman (a 14 member body).  However, Noorudin was the Khalifa and the President of the Sadr Anjuman.  Mir Muhammad Ishaq and the family of MGA posed several questions on this topic to Noorudin in an attempt for clarification.  Noorudin sent those questions to Maulvi Muhammad Ali (and remember, all of these people lived together in MGA’s house at Qadian) and (see “truth about the split”, pages 230-240, online english edition).  Mirza Basheer-uddin Mahmud Ahmad claims to have seen a dream with Mir Muhammad Ishaq in it, wherein Mir Muhammad Ishaq is lighting a house on fire symbolically.

31st January 1909
Mir Muhammad Ishaq was present on this day and supported the Noorudin’s Khilafat and the family of MGA.  This was the famous day wherein Nooruddin tried to solve the issues of the Sadr Anjuman, i.e. the powers of the Khalifa.

Ahmadiyya sources tell us that he passed the “Maulvi-Fazil” course and became an Ahmadiyya imam-proper.  However, there was no madrassa at Qadian which was qualified to produce imam’s, he was most likely grandfathered in via Noorudin.  Ishaq also claims to have learned the Quran from Noorudin.

Ahmadiyya sources tell us that he became a member, however, that would only be possible if Maulvi Noorudin would have retired from the Anjuman and named a replacement.

March of 1914
Noorudin had died and Mir Muhammad Ishaq was given the job of Hospitality.

Qadiani Jalsa of 1918
The annual Qadiani-Jalsa was supposed to be held in December of 1918, however, the Khalifa was sick and it was postponed and held in March of 1919.  Many Lahori-Ahmadi’s were invited to this Jalsa and even had an opportunity to speak.  After they spoke, Mir Muhammad Ishaq gave a refutation of their arguments (see “truth about the split”, pages 210-211, online english edition).

He became headmaster at Jamia Ahmadiyya at Qadian.

He contracts a mystery illness, he is taken to Lahore and other places for treatment.  However, none is found, he died 4 years later.  At this point, he signed up for Wasiyyat.

He died at aged 54.

“Zikr-e-Habib” by Mufti Muhammad Sadiq (1926)

Mufti Muhammad Sadiq was an inside man working for MGA.  In 1926, he published a controversial book on the life and times of his master, MGA, this seems to be the first edition, the second edition was published later, the original is obviously missing.  In this book, he officially changed the year of birth of MGA to 1835.  He also told how MGA also frequented “opera-houses” and etc in British India.  MGA was even shown as willing to favor rich people over poor people.  Mufti Muhammad even lied about the conversion of Mr. Wragge to Ahmadiyya, which never happened.  MGA would give Mufti Muhammad Sadiq drugs without explaining what was in them.  This book is spelled as Dhikr-e-Habib in the 2009 online edition of Tadhkirah.

Some quotes

“””Once Munshi Zafar complained about mufti Muhammad sadiq (who use to sleep on same bed due to small size of munshi Zafar ) to mirza ghulam ahamd qadyani , in absence of Muhammad Sadiq that he has gone to theatre . Mirza qadyani replied that ” I have also gone once It is to see what happens there . And he said nothing more”””Reference: page 18 – zikry habib

Mufti Muhammad Sadiq recalls how Muhammad Ali translated the letter of warning to Piggot.

“”””Narrated by Mufti Muhammad Sadiqra: In August 1903 a Christian of Bannu of the name of Gul Muhammad came to Qadian and indulged in very irreverent argumentation and discussion and he went back in the same attitude. After he had left, the Promised Messiahas saw in a dream that Gul Muhammad was applying collyrium to his eyes. The Promised Messiahas said that this was an indication that he would be guided aright. Several years later it was heard that
he had reverted to Islam. I received a post card from the widow of the well known Dr. Pennell of Bannu in which she stated that Gul Muhammad had left Christianity and had reverted to his original faith.”””[Dhikr-e-Habib by Hadrat Muhammad Sadiq, p. 111](see the 2009 online edition of Tadhkirah, page 1047)

“””That is [Arabic] Your prayer has been heard in the matter of your followers and your children.”””

[Dhikr-e-Habib, p. 238, by Hadrat Mufti Muhammad Sadiqra, Letter of Maulavi ‘Abdul-Karim, November 6](see the 2009 online edition of Tadhkirah, page 1042).

Dr. Shiekh Nur Ahmad’s son fell seriously ill with an attack of epilepsy and his condition became so serious as to cause disappointment. The Promised Messiahas supplicated on his behalf and received the revelation:

[Arabic] [I am Allah, Lord of bounty.] and the boy recovered.
(see the 2009 online edition of Tadhkirah, page 1040)

The Promised Messiah said: After a slight slumber, I received the revelation:

[Arabic] We belong to Allah, [Urdu] our brother has passed away from this world.

[He observed that he] did not know to whom this related, but it was a condolence and an expression of sympathy from God Almighty. (see the 2009 online edition of Tadhkirah, page 1040)

Page 245, Mufti Muhammad Sadiq is writing a letter to Mirza Ghulam Ahmad

“There is taneen (tinnitus maybe?) in my ears, if it suitable to take tablets (he is referring to a particular tablet) please send them to me.  I feel ashamed to trouble you again and again, if it is ok please write me the composition/ingredients so I can make it myself.”

There is a footnote here by Sadiq
“Once due to stomach/digestion problem, I suffered from fever repeatedly, Hazrat sahib used to buy fresh ingredients to make a tablet made it with his own blessed hands and send it to me.  Allah gave me the cure/shiffa with it, I did not know its ingredients at the time, but Hazrat Sahib told me later.”

Another Excerpt, page 336
Mufti Muhammd Sadiq relates:

“””“In 1904, I was head master at Talim ul Islam high school of Qadian.  During those days, I would accompany Hazrat Aqdas (aka MGA) during the court case of Karam Din, at Gurdaspur, and suffered from light fever all the time, after the court case was over, episodes of fever increased, due to that I was staying at home most of the time and could not concentrate on the teaching work. I was under the treatment of Molvi Nooruddin, when I had no benefit from his treatment, Hazrat Masih Maud started to give me his medicines and I was benefitted by a certain tablet, Hazrat Masih Maood prepared it with hands daily and send it to me.  I asked repeatedly about the ingredients, so that I am able to make it myself, without troubling him but he (MGA) would not tell me.  He used to tell me that he can make it and send it to me.  The reason for my insisting was that I did not want to trouble him for making it.  His precious time is not spent on making the tablet rather it could be spent on important religious work.  Out of kindness of his heart, Hazoor always made the tablet and then sent it to me.  Later on, I found out the composition of that tablet, it was Afyun (bhung) dhatora quinine, and Kaphoor, also more ingredients of the same nature.  That tablet is famous by the name of Hib-a-Jadid” and is sold in all medicine sellers of Qadian””””.

“Nuzul ul Masih” or “The Descent of the Messiah” (published posthumously in 1909) and quotes

Dear readers, after MGA died, there were 3 books that were published posthumously, “Jesus in India”, “Braheen-e-Ahmadiyya Vol. 5” and “Nuzul ul Masih”.  These books were cover-up jobs, the BA5 addressed the failure of MGA’s “age-prophecy”, which promised that MGA would live until age 80, which would be 1920, however, MGA died early of cholera.  In this book, MGA claims that his father died in 1875, and he also wrote that his brother died in 1881.  Why did do this?  His editors did this to discredit MGA himself and assert that MGA was just guessing, they were thus able to adjust his year of birth back 4-5 years to 1835.  Ahmadi sources claim that MGA began writing this book in 1902.  This book in english is “The descent of the Messiah”, however, Ahmadi sources call it “The Second Coming of the Messiah”.  This book was published on the 25th of August 1909.  See here also:

Seeratul Mahdi and Nuzul ul Masih, clashing of dates and etc
This narration 769 spreads over 5 pages and deals with various discrepencies in the dates.

Ref. seera tul Mahdi 3
Page 207 of 316
Narration no. 769

” Dr Ismail wrote to me and said that in narration 467 of seerat ul mahdi, he differs with me on some of the dates which are given below:

1- (A) HAZRAT MASIH MOUOOD WROTE 20 AUGUST 1875 AS THE DATE OF DEATH OF HIS FATHER LATE MIRZA GHULAM MURTAZA (look Nazool al Masih page 207) but in seerat ul mahdi 1876 is written. Then in an other place, HAZRAT SAHEB (mgaq) WROTE JUNE 1874 AS HIS FATHERS’S DATE OF DEATH (nazool ul masih page 116)

The humble one states that ” contradiction ” in his (mgaq) own statement shows that he wrote those estimated dates out of memory. But the dates that i wrote was taken from government records therefore I consider 1876 is the right date and in HAZRAT SAHIB (MGAQ)’s book KASHFAL ATA HAS THAT REFERNCE”

(B) I am skipping this part, this again shows contradictions that mgaq had with regards to some incidents.

2- HAZRAT SAHEB (mgaq) WROTE HIS BROTHER MIRZA GHULAM QADIR DIED IN 1881 (nazoole masih) and you wrote 1883 in seera tul mehdi. Similarly in an other place HAZRAT SAHEB (mgaq) WROTE 1887 AS DATE OF DEATH (nazool Masih 213) ”

Some quotes
1—-“””He who accepts me accepts afresh all the prophets and their miracles, and he who does not accept me will lose his previous faith also, for he has only tales to fall back on and his own observation. I am the mirror of God Almighty. He who comes to me and accepts me will see afresh the God concerning Whom other people have only old tales to tell. I believe in the God Whom those who deny me do not recognize. I state truly that what they believe in are the idols of their imagination and not God. That is why those idols cannot help them, cannot give them
strength, cannot bring about a holy change in them, and cannot show them any signs (Nuzul ul Masih, pp. 84-85, Ruhani Khaza’in, vol .18, pp. 462-463)(See Hidden Treasures).”””

2—“”The name of the Revenue Officer who was trying the suit was Hafiz Hidayat ‘Ali. He dismissed the suit on the statement of the defendant that according to a decision of the Commissioner he was entitled to cut down the tree in dispute. When he announced the dismissal of the suit the defendant and his witnesses went out of the court room. They returned to the village and announced that the suit has been dismissed. Thereafter, the Reader of the Court, who left the court room for a little while, returned and pointed out to the Revenue Officer that the order of the Commissioner which the defendant had relied upon had been set aside by the Financial Commissioner. The Reader put up the file to the Revenue Officer. Thereupon, Hidayat ‘Ali made a complete turnabout, tore up his first order, and decreed the suit. [Nuzulul-Masih, pp. 143–144, Ruhani Khaza’in, vol. 18, pp. 521–522](See Tadhkirah, 2009 edition).””

“”””Once I saw in a dream that my brother Ghulam Qadir was seriously ill. This dream was communicated to several people. Accordingly, my brother became seriously ill

Thereupon, I began to pray for him. I saw another dream that he was being called by an elder deceased member of the family. The usual interpretation of such a dream is death. His illness became more serious and he was reduced to a skeleton. This caused me great anxiety and I turned to Allah the Almighty, praying for his recovery…. I started praying and a few days later I saw in my dream that my brother was walking about in the house in full health without any support. He was accordingly restored to health by Allah the Almighty and lived for fifteen years thereafter.
[Nuzulul-Masih, p. 217, Ruhani Khaza’in, vol. 18, p. 595](see also the 2009 online english edition of Tadhkirah, page 11).

“”””The declaration by Bava Nanak in my dream that he was a Muslim meant that sometime his being a Muslim will become public. It is for this purpose that I wrote my book ‘Satt Bachan’. My saying to the Hindu: ‘The water of this fountain is not clear, drink from our fountain’; meant that a time will come when the truth of Islam will become manifest to the Hindus and the Sikhs and the fountain of Bava, which the Sikhs have foolishly rendered muddy, will be cleared up through me.
[Nuzulul-Masih, pp. 205, Ruhani Khaza’in, vol. 18, p. 583](see also the 2009 online english edition of Tadhkirah).

“””””(A) On one occasion I saw Bava Nanak in a dream in which he declared himself a Muslim. I also saw a Hindu drinking from his fountain and I said to the Hindu: The water of this fountain is not clear, drink from our fountain. This was thirty years ago and I related my dream to several Hindus and I was certain that confirmation of this would become available in due course. Accordingly, after some years, this dream was fulfilled very clearly. Three hundred years after the death of Bava Nanak, we found access to his robe which proves clearly that he was a Muslim. This robe, which is a kind of outer covering, is preserved with great reverence as a relic at Dera Baba Nanak [District Gurdaspur] in the custody of his descendants.
[Nuzulul-Masih, pp. 203–204, Ruhani Khaza’in, vol. 18, pp. 581–582](see also the 2009 online english edition of Tadhkirah).

“”””About twenty-five years before the case brought against me by Martyn Clark I had seen in a dream that I was present in a court before a magistrate and the time of the prayers had approached. I requested permission from the magistrate to go and join the prayers and he cheerfully gave me permission.

Accordingly, in the middle of the hearing of that case, when I requested Captain Douglas to permit me to join the prayers, he gladly gave me permission.
[Nuzulul-Masih, p. 210, Ruhani Khaza’in, vol. 18, p. 588](see also the 2009 online english edition of Tadhkirah).
“””””In a dream I saw an angel seated on an elevated platform in the guise of a boy. In his hand he was holding a pure loaf of bread, which was very bright.  He gave it to me and said:

[Urdu] This is for you and for the dervishes who are with you.

I saw this dream at a time when I was not at all known nor had I put forth any claim nor was there any group of dervishes with me. But now I have a large Jama‘at of people who have voluntarily chosen to put their faith above the world and have thus reduced themselves to the position of dervishes. Having migrated from their homes and having separated themselves from their relatives and friends, they have taken up permanent abode near me.

I had interpreted the loaf of bread as meaning that God Himself will provide for me and for my followers and that we will not be rendered anxious on account of lack of provision.

This has been the case over a long number of years.
[Nuzulul-Masih, pp. 206–207, Ruhani Khaza’in, vol. 8, pp. 584–585](see also the 2009 online english edition of Tadhkirah).
“””””Mirza A‘zam Beig, who was a retired Extra Assistant Commissioner, instituted a suit against us to recover the share from our property of some of our absentee co-sharers.  My brother Mirza Ghulam Qadir, believing firmly in the strength of our case, entered upon its defence. When I
supplicated with reference to this matter, I was vouchsafed the revelation:

[Arabic] I shall accept all your supplications except in the matter of your collaterals.

Thereupon, I collected all our relatives and told them very clearly that they would not succeed in that suit and should not proceed with its defence; but, relying upon the apparent strength of their case, they paid no heed to my warning and continued the defence. In the court of first instance, the decision went in favour of my brother. But how could the matter be concluded contrary to the revelation from Allah the All-Knowing! Finally, in the Chief Court, my brother lost the case. In this way the truth of the revelation became manifest for everyone.
[Nuzulul-Masih, pp. 212–213, Ruhani Khaza’in, vol. 18, p. 590–591](see also the 2009 online english edition of Tadhkirah).
“”””About twenty-five years ago, I saw a dream in Gurdaspur that I was sitting on a char-pa’i [cot] and that Maulavi ‘Abdullah Ghaznavi (deceased) was sitting on my left on the same cot.  Meanwhile, it passed through my mind that I should push Maulavi [‘Abdullah Ghaznavi] off the charpa’i.  I began to move slowly towards him until he got off the cot and sat down on the ground. Thereupon, three angels appeared from heaven, one of whom bore the name: Khaira’iti. They also sat down on the ground as Maulavi ‘Abdullah was sitting and I remained seated on the charpa’i.
Then I said to all of them: ‘I will now pray and you say Amin.’ Thereafter, I supplicated:

[Arabic] Lord, remove all uncleanliness from me and purify me completely

On this, the three angels and Maulavi ‘Abdullah all said: ‘Amin’. Thereafter, the three angels and Maulavi ‘Abdullah flew up to the sky and I woke up.

As soon as I woke up I felt sure that Maulavi ‘Abdullah would soon die and that a special grace had been decreed for me in the heavens. Thereafter, I felt all the time that a heavenly power was working inside me until I began to receive revelation in continuous succession. In that one
night, Allah the Almighty perfected in me a change of the kind which cannot be brought about by the hand of man or by man’s volition.

It seems to me that Maulavi ‘Abdullah Ghaznavi had been drawn to the Punjab to bear witness to the light which was to be vouchsafed to me and he bore such witness. His testimony was affirmed by Hafiz Muhammad Yusuf and his brother Muhammad Ya‘qub but later they were
overcome by the love of the world.

I declare on oath in the name of God—whose false oath is the act of curse—that Maulavi ‘Abdullah made an affirmation of my claim in my dream. I pray that if this statement of mine, which I have made on oath, is false, then Allah the Almighty might be pleased to bring about my
death in great torment within the lifetime of the progeny of Maulavi ‘Abdullah and his followers and disciples; and if I have told the truth, then God might be pleased to make me prevail and to confound them, or to guide them aright. Maulavi ‘Abdullah’s own words were: ‘You have been
given the sword of heavenly Signs and other reasoning.  When I was in the world I was hoping that God would raise such a person in the world.’ This is the dream that I saw. [Do You O Lord curse him who lies and do You succour him who tells the truth.]””” [Nuzulul-Masih, pp. 236–238, Ruhani Khaza’in, vol. 18, pp. 614–616](see also the 2009 online english edition of Tadhkirah).

“””That is [Arabic] I shall humiliate him who designs to humiliate you.

This is a grand revelation and prophecy which has been fulfilled in various ways and in respect of diverse nations.  Whoever attempted to bring my Movement into contempt
was himself humiliated and frustrated.””” [Nuzulul-Masih, p. 189, Ruhani Khaza’in, vol. 18, p. 567](see also the 2009 online english edition of Tadhkirah).

“””I saw that I was standing in the street of a large town and with me was Maulavi ‘Abdullah Ghaznavi and both of us entered a mosque where he had his companions in large numbers and who were strong men, all armed and wearing military uniforms. Maulavi ‘Abdullah also appeared as a young man, very strong, in military uniform, and armed with his sword hanging by his side. I felt that all these people were awaiting some grand command and all of them, except Maulavi ‘Abdullah, were angels equipped and ready for some desperate venture.””””
[Nuzulul-Masih p. 238, Ruhani Khaza’in, vol. 18, pp. 616–617](see also the 2009 online english edition of Tadhkirah).
“”””That sword sent forth shining rays like the rays of the sun. I wielded it to the right and to the left, each time killing thousands of people. On account of its extraordinary length it reached the ends of the earth and worked like lightning traversing thousands of miles in a second. I perceived that the hand that wielded it was mine but the power came from 
heaven. Each time I wielded it to the right or the left large numbers of people were cut and fell down.””” [Nuzulul-Masih, pp. 238–239, Ruhani Khaza’in, vol. 18, pp. 616–617](see also the 2009 online english edition of Tadhkirah).
“””[Arabic] Be grateful to Me that you have found My Khadijah.

This was the good news, several years in advance, of my marriage into a noble family of Sayyeds of Delhi.… [In the revelation] my wife was named Khadijah as she is the mother to a blessed progeny, and a blessed progeny has also been promised to me. It was also an indication that she would be of a Sayyed family.””” [Nuzulul-Masih, pp. 146–147, Ruhani Khaza’in, vol. 18, pp. 524–525](see also the 2009 online english edition of Tadhkirah).
“””It was the same promise which was set out in surah al- Tahrim [last verse of Chapter 66 of the Holy Qur’an]. In accordance with this promise, it was incumbent that someone from among the
Muslims should be named Mary and through the spiritual process ‘Isa [Jesus] should be born and should be called Son of Mary. I am that person. Mary was commanded: and so was I, the only difference being that Mary was then suffering from physical exhaustion and I was suffering from lack of financial means. [Nuzulul-Masih, p. 163, Ruhani Khaza’in, vol. 18, p. 541](see also the 2009 online english edition of Tadhkirah).
“””[Arabic] Allah will clear him of that which they alleged because he has a high standing with Allah.

This is a tremendous Sign that despite the fact that all these people—Maulavi Muhammad Husain on behalf of the Muslims, Lalah Ram Bhaj Dutt on behalf of the Hindus and Dr. Henry Martyn Clark on behalf of the Christians—had combined against me to humiliate me and, together with their supporters, mounted an assault against me, as it happened at the time of Jang-e-Ahzab [the Battle of the Moat], Allah humiliated all of them and established my
innocence. …so that the revelation might be fulfilled:

[Arabic] [Allah cleared him of that which they alleged.]”””

[Nuzulul-Masih, pp. 200–201, Ruhani Khaza’in, vol. 18, pp. 578–579](see also the 2009 online english edition of Tadhkirah).
“””It was about 1884 that God vouchsafed to me the revelation:

[Arabic] [I have lived a whole lifetime among you before this, then do you not understand?]

This was an indication on behalf of God the All-Knowing, that no opponent of mine would be able to point to any default in my life.  Accordingly, up till now, when I am about sixty-five years of age, no one, whether living close to me or far from me, can point to any stain in my past life. Indeed God Himself has made my opponents bear witness to the purity of my past life. For instance, Maulavi Muhammad Husain has, on many occasions, praised me and the members of my family in his journal Isha’atus-Sunnah and has claimed that no one is better acquainted with me and my family than him. Then, to the extent that he understood, he praised me. In this way an opponent, who became the originator of my condemnation as a non-believer, has confirmed the truth of this prophecy [I have lived among you…]. [Nuzulul-Masih, p. 212, Ruhani Khaza’in, vol. 18, p. 590](see also the 2009 online english edition of Tadhkirah).
“””This prophecy was fulfilled as following: At the time of Captain Douglas, I was charged with murder; Allah cleared me of that charge. Then I was charged at the time of Deputy Commissioner Douie, and Allah cleared me of that charge. I was also charged with being ignorant and the opposing maulavis were themselves proven to be ignorant.  Then Mehr ‘Ali charged me with being a plagiarist and he was proven to be so himself.””” [Nuzulul-Masih, p. 131, Ruhani Khaza’in, vol. 18, p. 509](see also the 2009 online english edition of Tadhkirah).

“”””Epidemics will spread among the people and simultaneously God’s blessings will be promulgated. That will be so because He will safeguard some from this calamity as a Sign
and secondly, these ailments will become a source of spiritual blessings and there would be many who will partake of spiritual blessings in these awe-striking days and will join the truthful movement. That is what actually happened; and many who were bigoted against the
Movement joined it by witnessing the awe-striking event of the plague.”””

“””””(C) There are three types of Signs in this revelation. (1) First that this revelation comprises the date of the consecration of this mosque. (2) Second that in it is a prophecy stating that the affairs of a great Community will be settled in this mosque. Accordingly, thousands of people have made their covenant of repentance in this mosque. Hundreds of points relating to the mysteries of the faith are expounded in this mosque. Designs for new publications are settled in this mosque and a large number of Muslims offer the five daily prayers in this mosque and hear sermons and make their sincere heartfelt supplications.  No sign of any of these things existed at the time of its consecration. (3) Third, this revelation indicates that there will be some calamity in future. Whoever will enter this mosque with complete sincerity will be secure against that calamity. Other references in the Barahin-e-Ahmadiyyah prove conclusively that plague is that calamity. Thus, this is a prophecy that whoever enters this mosque with complete devotion
and sincerity, such as is acceptable to God, will be secure against the plague, that is, against death by plague. [Nuzulul-Masih, pp. 147–148, Ruhani Khaza’in, vol. 18, pp. 525–526](see also the 2009 online english edition of Tadhkirah).
“”””One day before the death of my brother Mirza Ghulam Qadir, I received the revelation:

[Urdu] Funeral.

I informed several people of this revelation. Next day my brother died.””” [Nuzulul-Masih, p. 225, Ruhani Khaza’in, vol. 18, p. 603](see also the 2009 online english edition of Tadhkirah).

(B) Once I was in great need of fifty rupees and, as sometimes happens in the case of people who voluntarily adopt poverty and put their trust in God, I had nothing with me at the time. When I went out for a walk in the morning, the thought of the need prompted me to make a supplication in the jungle. I withdrew to an isolated place on the bank of the canal at a distance of three miles from Qadian towards Batala and made my supplication there. As soon as I had finished I received a revelation the rendering of which [in Urdu] is:

[Urdu] Observe how soon I accept your supplications.

I returned joyfully to Qadian and went to the post office to find out whether any money had arrived. I received a letter in which it was stated that a person from Ludhiana had dispatched fifty rupees and the amount reached me probably that day or the following day.

“””Ali Muhammad Khan, Navvab of Jhajjar, had started a grain market in Ludhiana. Through the mischief of someone, this market was deserted and he began to incur great loss. Then he turned to me with a request for prayers. But before I received any letter from Navvab [‘Ali Muhammad Khan] for prayer specifically in this matter, I was informed by Allah the Almighty that a letter on the subject would be received by me.””””[Nuzulul-Masih, p. 218, Ruhani Khaza’in, vol. 18, p. 596](see also the 2009 online english edition of Tadhkirah).
“””In my vision I received his [Navvab ‘Ali Muhammad Khan of Jhajjar’s] second letter in which he had described his great anxiety, thereupon I …prayed for him and I received the revelation:

[Urdu] This obstruction will be removed for a time and he will be relieved of this distress.

I had mentioned this revelation in the letter that I wrote to him which made him wonder still more. This revelation was fulfilled very speedily and within a few days his market flourished in a very good way and the obstruction was removed.”””[Nuzulul-Masih, p. 219, Ruhani Khaza’in, vol. 18, p. 597](see also the 2009 online english edition of Tadhkirah).
Miyan ‘Abdullah of Sannour, who is a patwari [A village registrar of land] in Patiala State, was pursuing a matter very diligently and had hope of achieving it. He requested me to supplicate for him in that behalf. When I prayed, I instantly received the revelation:

[Persian] How many a desire terminates in dust.

I told him that the object he was pursuing would never be achieved and informed him of the words of the revelation.  It so happened that certain difficulties arose and the object, though within reach, could not be achieved.””””[Nuzulul-Masih, p. 234, Ruhani Khaza’in, vol. 18, p. 612] (see also the 2009 online english edition of Tadhkirah).

“””(A) In an announcement of March 12, 1897, addressing Sir Sayyed Ahmad Khan the Promised Messiahas said:

That prophecy of mine was also fulfilled in an awe-striking way. On one occasion he suddenly lost one hundred and fifty thousand rupees through the dishonesty of a mischievous person, and was so affected… that for three days he did not eat anything… Once, he even became unconscious.

(B) ‘Towards the end of his life, Sir Sayyed had to bear the heavy bereavement of the death of a grown up son.”””” [Nuzulul-Masih, p. 191, Ruhani Khaza’in, vol. 18, p. 569](see also the 2009 online english edition of Tadhkirah).

“”””Once an English speaking friend of Maulavi Muhammad Husain named Najaf ‘Ali (who went to Kabul and probably is still there) came to see me. With him was my friend Mirza Khuda Bakhsh.  When we—the three of us—went out for a walk, I saw in a vision that Najaf ‘Ali has made some statements indicating some feelings of opposition and hypocrisy towards me. When I told him about the vision, he admitted that it was so.””” [Nuzulul-Masih, p. 206, Ruhani Khaza’in, vol. 18, p. 584](see also the 2009 online english edition of Tadhkirah).

“””On one occasion I was travelling by train in the direction of Ludhiana when I received the revelation:

[Persian] Half to you and half to your collaterals.

I was given to understand that Imam Bibi—who was the widow of one of our collaterals—would die and half her land would revert to us and the remaining half would revert to our collaterals.
I communicated this revelation to those of my friends who were with me at that time. And so it happened that the woman died and her land was divided half and half between our collaterals and us.”””[Nuzulul-Masih, pp. 213–214, Ruhani Khaza’in, vol. 18, pp. 591–592](see also the 2009 online english edition of Tadhkirah).

“”””On one occasion I travelled from Ludhiana to Patiala. Before I set out I received the revelation:

[Urdu] Some loss will be incurred in the course of this journey and some worry and suffering
will be encountered.

I informed my companions of this. Before we set out from Patiala for the return journey, it was time for ‘Asr Prayer and in order to make my ablutions I took off my cloak and handed it to a servant of Sayyed Muhammad Hasan Khan, a minister of the State of Patiala. Thereafter, when the time came to purchase our tickets, I put my hand in my pocket and discovered that the handkerchief in which the money had been folded had fallen out of my pocket. Then I
remembered the revelation that this loss had to be suffered.  After we boarded the train and arrived at the [railway] station of Doraha, a European traveller deliberately misinformed one of my companions that the train had arrived at Ludhiana and we all got out of the train. After
the train left we discovered that it was a different station.  Having detrained at a deserted place we were all put to much trouble. In this way the second part of the revelation was also fulfilled.”””

“””Khalifah Sayyed Muhammad Hasan, Chief Minister of Patiala State, was facing some trouble, anxiety and sadness. I received several requests from him for prayers. It so happened that in one of those days I received the revelation:

[Urdu] The breeze of mercy is blowing.

All your supplications will be accepted today.

On this, I recalled his request and supplicated for him and informed him of this by a letter. Within a short time he was relieved of his trouble and informed me accordingly by a letter.”””

“”””On one occasion I received a letter from Sayyed Muhammad Isma‘il, the brother of my wife (who was at that time ten years old), who wrote from Patiala to the effect that his mother had died and there was no one to look after his younger brother Ishaq. At the end of the letter there was a note that Ishaq had also died and that we should come [to Patiala] immediately. This letter caused me great anxiety, more particularly as my wife had high fever at the time. In this state of anxiety I was overcome by a light slumber and the revelation came:

That is [Arabic] O women! Great are your stratagems.

…From this I understood immediately that this was merely a ruse. Then…I sent my servant Sheikh Hamid ‘Ali to Patiala and on his return he told us that both Ishaq and his mother were alive and safe.””””  [Nuzulul-Masih, pp. 232–233, Ruhani Khaza’in, vol. 18, pp. 610–611](see also the 2009 online english edition of Tadhkirah).
“”””[Arabic] You will recognise the day of Joy which will beclosest to the day of the ‘Id [Festival].

The Promised Messiahas writes about this verse:

The day and the date of the assassination of Pundit Lekhram were disclosed to me in an Arabic couplet set out in Karamat-us-Sadiqin published widely four years before the event. When Lekhram was assassinated Hindu newspapers raised a great cry with reference to this couplet which was: Wa Bashsharani Rabbi…This great prophecy after being published so widely was fulfilled on March 6, 1897. One unknown person cut open Lekhram’s belly, with a very sharp knife on a Saturday afternoon which was the day next after the day of ‘Id [Festival], in the city of Lahore and disappeared so completely that he has not been traced so far, though he had been staying with Lekhram for quite some time.””””  [Nuzulul-Masih, pp. 182–183, Ruhani Khaza’in, vol. 18, p. 560](see also the 2009 online english edition of Tadhkirah).

“”””Being a diabetic, I was apprehensive about my eyesight for one of the consequences of diabetes is that eyesight can be affected and cataract can set in. On this account, I supplicated and received the revelation:

That is [Arabic] Mercy will descend upon three, the eye, and two others.

In this revelation, the eye is expressly mentioned and the other two limbs are not specified. It is commonly said that the proper functioning of life requires that the eye, the ear and intelligence should be preserved. The fulfilment of this revelation can be judged from the fact that I have been suffering from diabetes for eighteen years and doctors and physicians know what a threat this disease constitutes for eyesight. Then what is the power which informed me in advance that I would be exempted from the operation of this rule and then proved it accordingly?”””
[Nuzulul-Masih, p. 214, Ruhani Khaza’in, vol. 18, pp. 592–593](see also the 2009 online english edition of Tadhkirah).

“”””This revelation was widely published in an announcement of December 21 and within a couple of days all and sundry had been informed that my paper will be acclaimed above all others, and so it happened. In the Conference itself, representatives of other faiths came to the platform and testified to that effect. The Civil and Military Gazette the Punjab Observer January 2–9, 1897. (See Tarikh-e- Ahmadiyyat, volume 2, page 403). Several other papers wrote
emphatically that my paper was the best of all.”””””  [Nuzulul-Masih, p. 195, Ruhani Khaza’in, vol. 18, p. 573](see also the 2009 online english edition of Tadhkirah).
“”””During the pre-natal stage of my daughter, Mubarakah, there was some concern because of miscalculation [of the expected delivery date]. The anxiety mounted and there was concern that there might be an undiagnosed health problem. I prayed in the court of Allah the Almighty and
was granted the revelation:

[Persian] [The day of deliverance is coming soon.]

It was conveyed to me that a daughter would be born.  Accordingly, a daughter was born on Ramadan 27, 1314 AH and was named Mubarakah.”””  [Nuzulul-Masih, p. 202, Ruhani Khaza’in, vol. 18, p. 580](see also the 2009 online english edition of Tadhkirah).
“”””One Shia gentleman who called himself by the title of Sheikh Najafi arrived some time ago in Lahore and raised a storm of opposition and demanded a Sign from me. I promised him in my announcement of February 1, 1897, that within forty days God Almighty would show him some Sign. It is a bounty of God that before the expiry of forty days the Sign of the death of Lekhram Peshawari was fulfilled. Thereupon, Sheikh Najafi made haste to disappear from Lahore.””” [Nuzulul-Masih, p. 209, Ruhani Khaza’in, vol. 18, p. 587](see also the 2009 online english edition of Tadhkirah).

“””Having been informed by God, the All-Knowing and All- Aware, I had disclosed in my announcement of March 12, 1897 that the death of Sir Sayyed Ahmad Khan K.C.S.I. was approaching. I had expressed my regret that I had not had the opportunity of meeting him even once and had invited his attention to the announcement saying that this was the substitute for a meeting.

“”””In that [which I told the vice-consul] there were two prophesies; (1) Your conduct, as a nation, is not good and you lack the noble attributes of honesty and integrity; and (2) If you do not reform personally you will fare ill and will come to a bad end. I had added in my announcement (by way of a prophecy about the vice-counsel): It would have been better if he had not visited me. It was most unfortunate for him that he spoke ill of me after he had left me. That is why he resented my admonition and reviled me.””””  [Nuzulul-Masih, p. 187, Ruhani Khaza’in, vol. 18, pp. 565–566

“”””In July 1897 when my friend Mirza Ya‘qub Baig appeared in the final examination for surgery and I supplicated on his behalf, I received the revelation:

[Urdu] You have passed.

This meant that he had passed, for in the case of sincere friends who are so close as to reach the point of unification such phrases are sometimes employed…. Eventually he passed his examination very well.”””  [Nuzulul-Masih, p. 223, Ruhani Khaza’in, vol. 18, p. 601](see also the 2009 online english edition of Tadhkirah).
“”””This case started in this manner. A man of the name of ‘Abdul-Hamid was incited by the Christians to make a statement before the District Magistrate of Amritsar that he had been sent by me to murder Dr. Henry Martyn Clark a Christian missionary. Thereupon the District Magistrate Amritsar issued a warrant for my arrest. On August 1, hearing this, my opponents gathered at the Batala and Amritsar station platforms and on the roads leading thereto, to witness my disgrace. But by Allah’s grace it so happened that somehow that warrant miscarried and in the meantime the District Magistrate of Amritsar realised his lack of jurisdiction in the case and sent a telegram, on August 6, to the District Magistrate of Gurdaspur that the execution of the warrant should be stopped. This telegram surprised everyone at Gurdsapur as they had received no intimation of any warrant. When the record was received by the District
Magistrate of Gurdaspur he summoned me to his court and treated me with great courtesy, providing me with a chair close to him. The name of this District Magistrate was Captain M. W. Douglas. He was a wise, intelligent and just man and realised immediately that the whole case was false and without foundation, and that is why I have compared him to Pilate at another place, but in his courage and justice he was much better than Pilate. By the further grace of Allah it so happened that ‘Abdul-Hamid himself confessed that he had been put up by the Christians to make his original statement which was entirely false. The District Magistrate,
being convinced of the truth of this, wrote a strong order discharging me and congratulated me with a smile. [Allah be praised for all this.]”””” [Nuzulul-Masih, pp. 198–199, Ruhani Khaza’in, vol. 18, pp. 576–577](see also the 2009 online english edition of Tadhkirah).
“””(C) One part of this revelation was fulfilled when disagreement arose between our opponents, that is to say, between ‘Abdul-Hamid and those who had put him up, when ‘Abdul-Hamid confessed that he had been tutored by them and had made an utterly false statement. … Another part of the revelation was fulfilled in this manner: Maulavi Muhammad Husain appeared as a witness on behalf of the Christians against me. He was surprised to see that contrary to his expectations I had been granted great honour. Seeing me so honoured he immediately asked for a chair himself but the District Magistrate rebuked him and told him that
he could not be provided a chair. Therefore, it was a divine Sign that what he wished to do to me [humiliation] was inflicted upon himself.””” [Nuzulul-Masih, pp. 199–200, Ruhani Khaza’in, vol. 18, pp. 577–578](see also the 2009 online english edition of Tadhkirah).
“”””In the beginning of October 1897, I was shown that I had appeared as a witness before an English Judge who asked me the name of my father but did not administer an oath to me, as is customary.”””  [Nuzulul-Masih, p. 221, Ruhani Khaza’in, vol. 18, pp. 599](see also the 2009 online english edition of Tadhkirah).
“”””Then on October 8, 1897, I saw in a dream that a constable had brought summons for my appearance in Court. I related this dream to the people in the mosque and it happened accordingly. A constable brought summons which showed that the editor of Nazimul-Hind, Lahore, had cited me as a witness in his case…. Accordingly, I went to Multan to make my statement and it so happened that the presiding officer forgot to put me on oath and started
recording my statement.””””  [Nuzulul-Masih, p. 221, Ruhani Khaza’in, vol. 18, p. 599](see also the 2009 online english edition of Tadhkirah).
“””(B) When this prophecy was published on February 6, 1898, only two districts in the Punjab were affected by the plague. But thereafter twenty-three districts were affected by it.

“””When the book Ummahatul-Mo’minin was published by the Christians, Anjuman-e-Himayat-e-Islam Lahore, presented a memorial to the Government that the publication of the book should be banned and its author should be prosecuted. I was much opposed to this memorial and had published clearly in my writing that this was not a good way to proceed. But they did not accept my advice; indeed, I was reviled for it. At that time I received a revelation:

[Arabic] You will soon recall my admonition; I commit my cause to Allah.

That is, ‘You will soon recall my words…’ This was an indication that the memorial would fail of its purpose and that I commit to God the way that I had adopted, which was to refute the charges of our opponents and to deal with them. This revelation was communicated to a large number of people and it happened accordingly—that is to say, the request made by the Anjuman was turned down.””””  [Nuzulul-Masih, pp. 225–226, Ruhani Khaza’in, vol. 18, pp. 603–604](see also the 2009 online english edition of Tadhkirah).
“”””When, based on a motion initiated by my opponents, the government moved to have me assessed to income tax and I filed an objection, I was overcome with a state of vision, while I was sitting in the small mosque with some friends and we were busy compiling a statement of income and expenditure. I was shown that the Hindu Tahsildar of Batala, before whom the matter was pending, had been transferred and his place was taken by a Muslim. Along with this vision there were some indications that presaged my victory. I related this vision immediately to those present—one of whom was Khwajah Jamal-ud-Din,Inspector of Schools, Jammu and Kashmir, and there were many others. Thereafter the Hindu Tahsildar was suddenly transferred and his place was taken by Miyan Taj-ud-Din as Tahsildar of Batala. He made an honest inquiry and sent his report to Mr. Dixon, Deputy Commissioner Gurdaspur. By a happy co-incidence, he too was an intelligent and just official. He recorded an order to the effect that: Mirza Ghulam Ahmad is the head of a well-known sect and I do not have any doubt about his integrity… He accepted my objection and exempted me from any tax and closed the file of the case.”””” [Nuzulul-Masih, pp. 228–229, Ruhani Khaza’in, vol. 18, pp. 606, 607](see also the 2009 online english edition of Tadhkirah).
“”””When Khwajah Jamal-ud-Din, B. A., who is a member of my Jama‘at, failed in the examination for a judicial appointment, and became a prey to disappointment,
despair, and pain, I received a revelation concerning him:

That is [Arabic] God will remove his grief.

Soon thereafter he was appointed in the State of Jammu and Kashmir to a post which he found better than the judicial post. That is, he was promoted as the Inspector of Schools for the entire State of Jammu and Kashmir.”””  [Nuzulul-Masih, p. 213, Ruhani Khaza’in, vol. 18, p. 591](see also the 2009 online english edition of Tadhkirah).
“””At one time, the eyes of my son, Bashir Ahmad, gave him great trouble. His eyelashes fell off and water ran constantly from his eyes. Finally, I supplicated on his behalf and received the revelation:

Meaning [Arabic] My boy Bashir’s eyes have recovered.

Within a week God Almighty bestowed healing upon him and his eyes were restored to perfect health. Before that we had tried both the Allopathic and Ayurvedic medicine for several years but none of them did any good and the condition of his eyes had gone on deteriorating.”””

(A) On one occasion, I was in great trouble on account of diabetes. Sometimes I passed water a hundred times in a day. Signs appeared between my shoulder blades which indicated the appearance of a carbuncle. Then, I was occupied in supplication and received the revelation:

Meaning that [Arabic] We call to witness death when it is removed.

This revelation has also been so fulfilled that every second of my life since has been a Sign.”””

“””On one occasion the son of Doctor Nur Muhammad, owner of the medicine factory, Hamdam-e-Sihat, fell seriously ill. The boy’s mother was very restless with anxiety. I took pity on her and supplicated for the boy’s recovery, whereupon I received the revelation:

[Urdu] Will recover

I communicated this revelation to those who were then close to me. It happened accordingly that by Allah’s grace, the boy recovered completely.”””  [Nuzulul-Masih, p. 230, Ruhani Khaza’in, vol. 18, p. 608](see also the 2009 online english edition of Tadhkirah).
“”””(C) When the maulavis were unable to come forward to compete in writing a commentary and Mehr ‘Ali Shah of Golarha had recourse to all kinds of reprehensible devices, God Almighty bestowed upon me the miracle of writing a commentary on my own. I prepared the booklet I‘jazul- Masih in seventy days, though there were several interruptions and, for a good part of the time, I was ill…. During those days, I was vouchsafed a revelation about this book:

Meaning that [Arabic] He has been forbidden by the Forbidder from heaven.

This revelation has been fulfilled so clearly that neither Miyan Mehr ‘Ali nor any of his supporters have been able to write a reply so far.””” [Nuzulul-Masih, p. 224, Ruhani Khaza’in, vol. 18, p. 602](see also the 2009 online english edition of Tadhkirah).

“””(A) One Muhammad Hasan Faizi of village Bheen, Tahsil Chakwal, District Jhelum, a teacher in the Madrassah Nu‘maniah in the Shahi [Royal] Mosque Lahore, made a public announcement that he would write a reply to my book. After making such a tall claim, when he started compiling his notes and with reference to some of the verities that I had set out in my book he called down the curse of Allah upon liars, he perished soon thereafter. Observe how, having called down a curse upon me, he died an accursed death within a week.”””  [Nuzulul-Masih, p. 194, Ruhani Khaza’in, vol. 18, p. 572](see also the 2009 online english edition of Tadhkirah).
“””(B) Pir Mehr ‘Ali Shah of Golarha wrote a reply to this book I‘jazul- Masih after a long time in Urdu, but it was proved that even the Urdu text was a verbatim copy of the book of Muhammad Hasan Bheni, and this brought great humiliation upon Mehr ‘Ali Shah. Thus, the revelation was fulfilled in his case also.”””    [Nuzulul-Masih, p. 194, Ruhani Khaza’in, vol. 18, p. 572](see also the 2009 online english edition of Tadhkirah).
“”””I saw in a vision once that my fourth son Mubarak Ahmad had fallen down near the matting and was seriously hurt.  His shirt was all stained with blood. As Allah’s will would have it, within less than about three minutes I came out of the veranda and saw Mubarak Ahmad, who was just over two years old, standing near the matting. He made a sudden child-like movement and his foot slipped and he fell down and his clothes became bloodstained. This happened exactly as I had seen in my vision.”””  [Nuzulul-Masih, pp. 219–220, Ruhani Khaza’in, vol. 18, pp. 597–598](see also the 2009 online english edition of Tadhkirah).
“””Once I saw in a dream that my fourth son Mubarak Ahmad had died. Within a few days, he had high fever and lost consciousness eight times. The last time it appeared as if his life had come to an end. I began my supplication on his behalf and while I was so occupied I heard everyone say: ‘Mubarak Ahmad has died’. I placed my hand on him and there was no pulse or breathing and his eyes seemed petrified like those of a corpse. But my supplication brought an extraordinary change and by my putting my hand on him he began to revive and the signs of life
returned. Then I announced in a loud voice to those present: If Jesus son of Mary brought any dead person back to life, it would have been nothing more than this. That is, he would have revived someone near to death like this and not one whose soul might have reached the heavens and conveyed by the Angel of Death to its last resting place.”””  [Nuzulul-Masih, p. 220, Ruhani Khaza’in, vol. 18, p. 598](see also the 2009 online english edition of Tadhkirah).
“””On one occasion I received the revelation:

[Arabic] Lord show me how do You bring the dead back to life. Lord, forgive and have mercy
from heaven.

This was an intimation that I would have to supplicate in this manner and my supplication would be heard. Thus, my son Mubarak Ahmad became so seriously ill that everybody said he had died. I started my supplication and put my hand on him and he began to breathe again. This revelation has also been fulfilled in this wise that through me, God Almighty has bestowed spiritual life on thousands who were spiritually dead, and continues to do so.”””  [Nuzulul-Masih, pp. 235–236, Ruhani Khaza’in, vol. 18, pp. 613–614](see also the 2009 online english edition of Tadhkirah).
“””One night I received a revelation as if a third person was addressing me in the following words:

[Arabic] I am running to you with the members of my family.

This revelation was announced to all friends. Accordingly, I received a letter the same day from Khalifah Nur-ud-Din from Jammu that plague had broken out in that city and he wanted permission that he should move to Qadian with all his family members.”””” [Nuzulul-Masih, p. 211, Ruhani Khaza’in, vol. 18, p. 589](see also the 2009 online english edition of Tadhkirah).
“”””I was once seriously ill and recovery appeared improbable.  In this condition, I received the revelation:

[Arabic] No one can die without Allah’s command and that which benefits people endures in the earth.

Accordingly, God Almighty, of His grace and benevolence, restored me to health when recovery had seemed problematic. It is true that thousands of people recover from serious and even dangerous illnesses, but it is not within the power of man to announce in such a condition
that recovery is certain.””””  [Nuzulul-Masih, p. 221, Ruhani Khaza’in, vol. 18, p. 599](see also the 2009 online english edition of Tadhkirah).
“””On one occasion his son Mirza Ibrahim Baig, fell ill and he wrote to me requesting me to pray for his son’s recovery. I supplicated for him and saw in a vision that Ibrahim was sitting close to me and said to me: ‘Convey to me greetings from Paradise;’ from which I understood that
his life was about to come to an end. I was reluctant to let his father know, but after much thought I informed Mirza Muhammad Yusuf Baig about this [impending] event and a few days later his grown up, gentle-minded, and obedient son passed away from this world before his eyes.””””  [Nuzulul-Masih, p. 223, Ruhani Khaza’in, vol. 18, p. 601](see also the 2009 online english edition of Tadhkirah).
“””(A) In those days God Almighty addressed me and said:

Meaning that [Arabic] I shall safeguard all those who dwell in your house from dying of
plague except those who think highly of themselves out of arrogance; and I shall safeguard you particularly. Peace be on you from the Merciful Lord.””””

[Nuzulul-Masih, p. 23, Ruhani Khaza’in, vol. 18, p. 401](see also the 2009 online english edition of Tadhkirah).
“”””I write another dream, which I saw about the plague, which was as follows: I saw an animal of the height of an elephant, but whose mouth resembled a human mouth and some of whose limbs resembled the limbs of other animals. I saw that it came into existence suddenly through [Allah’s] decree. I was sitting at a place that was surrounded on all sides by a forest in which cattle, donkeys, horses, dogs, swine, wolves, camels etc. abounded. It was conveyed to
me that all these were human beings who had taken on the form of animals on account of their misconduct.

Then I saw that the animal of the size of an elephant, which was a compound of various forms and had emerged solely with Divine decree from the earth, came and sat down near me, facing the north. It had a modest appearance and very shy looks. Every few minutes it would run into
one of the surrounding forests where its entry caused great confusion and terror and it started killing and eating the animals in the forest. I could hear the noise of its crunching the bones. After every raid into the forest it returned to me and sat down close to me, staying for about ten minutes.  Then it raided another forest where its action was repeated and, at the end of it, returned to me. Its eyes were very large and I studied it carefully each time it came back to me. It conveyed to me, by the expression of its face, that it was helpless in the matter and that it was only carrying out a task that had been assigned to it. It appeared to me to be a gentle and pious creature who did nothing on its own account, but only that which it was commanded to do.

Then it was conveyed to me that this animal was the plague and was the [germ out of the earth], mentioned in the Holy Qur’an, which would be sent in the latter days and it would bite people because they did not believe in God’s Signs …. The germ of the earth, mentioned in these verses, was destined to appear in the time of the Promised Messiah. It was further conveyed to me that this animal combining the features of many animals, which I had seen in my dream, was the germ of the plague. God had named it [germ of the earth] as this malady originates with the germs of the earth and is propagated by them and it first affects rats and then spreads
in different ways. Just as humans are affected by it, so can all other animals. That is why in my vision I saw it in different shapes.””””” [Nuzulul-Masih, pp. 37–39, Ruhani Khaza’in, vol. 18, pp. 415–417](see also the 2009 online english edition of Tadhkirah).

Response to the Book Saif-i-Chishtiai : pp. 53-99

“”””I received this book by mail on July 1, 1902. Presumably, Peer Mehr Ali Shah has sent it with the intention to notify me that he has responded to my book Ijaz-ul-Masih, and also to Shams-i-Bazigha”””

“”””Now listen carefully to the criticism that Peer Sahib saying that the book Ijaz-ul-Masih which is a 200 page book; contains few sentences which will not be more that 4 lines if combined, some of these sentences are stolen from Maqamat al-Hareeri, some from Quran and some are stolen from other books. And some are written with some changes and some are popular Arabic phrases.

This is my theft that Peer Sahib has caught that out of 20,000 sentences 10/12 sentences; the sentences which are verse of Quran or Arabic phrase or according to him””””

“”””””from Hareeri or Hamadhani’s sentences. Sorry that he did not feel any shame raising these objections. He did not consider a bit that those little and 2/4 sentences should not be considered copying, as authors’ writings do contain such things, and these few sentences should be taken as quotes, then how can there be any objection? Hariri’s own book contains many Quranic verses as quotes. Similarly some unchanged sentences and verses (poetry) from others are found therein and some sentences from Abu Fazal Badi-uz-Zaman are found as is. So shall we form an opinion that all of Maqamat al-Hareeri is plagiarized? Some have doubted to the extent that Hareeri’s entire book was authored by someone else. And some say: once he was summoned before an Ameer/King and introduced as master of the pen. To test him, he was ordered to write something in perfect Arabic which he could not and that incident caused him a lot of embarrassment, yet he was well respected among authors and his Maqamat al-Hareeri is viewed with respect though that cannot be used in matters of faith or education because Hareeri is incapable of writing a true or real incident or hidden meaning of inspirations and prove that he can master the words to express a meaning or thought.”””””

“””””Why the one who is unable to write in response says that there are sentences in the book that are stolen (plagiarized)? If such (writing) is possible by stealing, why is he not coming to face it and why is he running around like a fox. O stupid one, first prove your Arabic skills by writing an exegesis then your criticism will be given some attention. Otherwise criticizing me and accusing me of stealing and pointing out grammatical mistakes, without proving your Arabic language skills is only like eating excrement. O ignorant, shameless, first write an exegesis of a Surah in perfect Arabic, then you will have the right to point out my mistakes or declare it stolen (plagiarized) “”””


List of Prophecies : pp. 118-242

Here, Mirza Ghulam Ahmad presents a list of ‘prophecies’ in a tabular form, with numbering, the ‘revelation’ he received, and how it was fulfilled:

No. Revelation Fulfilment
1 1874: Around the time of the death of his father: ‘Sky and the morning star’, ‘is not Allah sufficient for his servant?’ (both Quranic expressions) After his father’s death, he received fame and more than 1,000,000 rupees sent by his followers through the post office.
2 1880-1882: Several Quranic and pseudo-Quranic phrases meaning people will come from far-off areas, and help is near. He has a lot of followers, and the road to Qadian has been broken many times due to the frequency of horse-drawn carriages travelling on it.
3 1880-1882: psuedo-Quranic: ‘don’t turn your face away from the creation of Allah, and do not get tired of people’ Many people are coming to see him.
4 1880-1882: ‘people of Suffa, who are the people of Suffa’ Many people have migrated to Qadian and guest-houses and ‘suffa’ had to be made for them.
5 1880-1882: ‘your forefathers will be cut off, and will start from you’ His fame has spread more than that of his family
6 1880-1882: ‘I desired to be succeeded, so I made Adam’ Quranic: ‘I have made in the earth a successor . . . shed blood. . . . know not.’ He was the Adam. The blood refers to the murder cases against him. Adam was twin – first male, and then female, I was born twin – first female then male – which denotes the symmetrical end of time. I am spiritually without father (teacher) or mother (family of prophets). Jesus’ similarity with Adam (Quranic) is not complete, whereas my similarity is complete.
7 ‘and when they see a sign, they walk away and say it is magic . . . . ‘ He says that since this Quranic verse is from Surah Al-Qamar and is related to the incident of the ‘splitting of the moon’, therefore it is related to the eclipses

MGA’s editors add the word knife to the Lekh Ram prophecy
We all know that this entire book is an edit-job by Ahmadiyya mullahs. We have noticed that they claim that when MGA initially wrote the Lekh ram prophecy he wrote that Lekh Ram would die via a knife.  This is a lie, MGA never wrote any such thing.  See the scan in the below:

What is Saif-e-Chishtiyai (The Chishtia Sword), by Pir Mehr Ali Shah (1902)


MGA’s confrontation with Pir Mehr Ali Shah started in 1899.  Pir Mehr Ali Shah had a book vs. MGA published in May of 1899.  It was printed at the Mustafa’i Press, Lahore in Ramadan 1317 A.H. Maulawi Nur-ud-Din read a few pages of this book on February 17th, 1900, and wrote a letter to Pir Mihr Ali Shah the next day. It was written in this book that if any one wanted to say
anything about this book he must refer to authentic commentaries such as Ibni Jarir and Ibni Kathir and also to the true Hadith or he must base his arguments upon the Holy Quran, which should be acceptable to the great and learned people who are masters of language and rhetorics (page 8). Though the book is written in Urdu, yet the writer has occasionally
employed Arabic also to show his learning. So Maulawi Nur-ud-Din asked the Pir eleven questions in his letter (see Dard).  MGA also wrote responses to the Pir in his book, “Nuzul ul Masih”, which seems to have been written in 1902 and published after MGA died in 1909.

April 24th, 1900
Maulawi Abdul Karim wrote a response in the Al-Hakam, dated April 24th, 1900, and pressed Mihr Ali Shah in vain for an answer to the eleven questions put to him (see Dard).

July 9th 1900
Maulawi Sayyid Muhammad Ahsan reminded Mihr Ali Shah and also challenged him to
hold a debate with him about the life or death of Jesusas, the subject of Mihr Ali Shah’s book (see Dard).

On July 20th, 1900
MGA issued an announcement in which he invited Mihr Ali Shah to a contest.  On page 81, Mihr Ali Shah had insinuated that MGA did not know the Quran, so he suggested that a meeting be held at Lahore and forty verses of the Quran should be selected by casting lots. MGA and Mihr Ali Shah should then pray that God might enable the truthful of the two to write in fluent Arabic a commentary of the verses in that very meeting with the help of the Holy Spirit. The commentary should be not less than 43 pages. The parties should have no book with them, nor should there be any assistant. Seven hours should be given for this purpose. The parties should then sign the papers which would be read out to three learned men selected by Mihr Ali Shah. They should neither be the followers of MGA nor of Mihr Ali Shah. These three men should then give their decision under oath as to which of the papers was superior in language as well as in commentary. MGA also said he was prepared to entrust the decision to his enemies like Maulawi Muhammad Husain, Maulawi Abdul Jabbar Ghaznavi and Professor Maulawi Abdullah. This Ishtihar was signed by 20 men as witnesses (see Dard).  MGA gave Pir Mehr Ali Shah a deadline of August 22nd to respond.

July 23rd, 1900
MGA issued an Urdu leaflet (Arba‘in No. 1) on July 23rd, 1900.  He declared that it was not a Mubahala nor was it meant to be a dreadful prophecy for any opponent. He also announced that he would go on publishing leaflets until the limit of 40 was reached or until an opponent came out in good faith in the field of contest (see Dard).

August 25th, 1900
Pir Mehr Ali Shah arrived in Lahore for his contest with MGA, however, MGA was a no-show.

Saif-e-Chishtiyai is published in 1902
This book is part of the controversy between MGA and Pir Mehr Ali Shah.  This book played a major role in MGA’s famous court case of 1904 vs. Maulvi Karam Din.

Some quotes
This excerpt is from page 66, where the author asks Mirza Ghulam Ahmad to not abuse him and whatever comes out from his mouth, as God’s words are also spoken by him.
