MGA’s failure to speak at the Aligarh College in April-May of 1889

As we all know, MGA never gave any public lectures in his whole life, before 1889 or after.  MGA always had a follower of his read out these ready made speeches, which were written by MGA’s team of writers.  The main reason that MGA never did public speeches or Friday Sermons or etc was because he spoke with a terrible stutter.  In fact, MGA’s team went out of their way to fabricate speeches that MGA might have given, like Khutba Ilhamia and other talks at the annual Jalsa’s at Qadian.  Even before Khutbah Ilhamia, MGA never led any Eid prayer, he would simply get up to speak and say a few words after the main speech, see MGA’s Eid of 1888.  Nevertheless, after accepting Bait’s from his followers in March of 1889, MGA immediately traveled to Aligarh and was scheduled to give a speech to many Professor’s, Sir Syed would also be in attendance.  However, after MGA arrived in Aligarh, he never came out of his apartment for daily prayers, then, just a few hours before his speech, he declined and abruptly left for Qadian.  This was before Noorudin and Maulvi Abdul Karim had began giving speeches on MGA’s behalf.  They had just taken his Bait however.  Mir Abbas Ali Ludhianvi, Maulvi Abdullah Sanori and Sheikh Hamid Ali accompanied him on this journey (see Mujadid-e-Azim, page 278).  MGA stayed in Aligarh for just a week, after which he returned to Ludhiana. In Aligarh, he was the guest of Tafazul Hussain, Tehsildar, who was at the time serving as the Superintendent of the Deputy Commissioner’s office. There were a couple of report-worthy incidents in Aligarh (IBID).  The name of the speech was supposed to be “The Truth of Islam”.

1890, MGA’s account of this event in Fath-e-Islam
“”””Once I had the occasion to travel to Aligarh at a time when my mind was tired. I had also suffered from this weakness some time earlier in Qadian and I was not in a fit condition
to carry on long conversations or to undertake any intellectual effort…. In Aligarh, while I was in this condition, a Maulavi of the name of Muhammad Isma‘il came to see me and humbly requested me to deliver a sermon…. I accepted his request with pleasure and had in mind to speak in regular public about the essence of Islam…But thereafter God the Almighty dissuaded me from this effort. 

I am sure that as I was not in good health, God the Almighty did not desire that I should suffer some ill consequence from making an intellectual effort and that is why He stopped me from delivering the sermon. On a previous occasion, I had a similar experience.

While I was physically in a weak condition, I saw one of the past Prophets in a vision and he said to me with sympathy and goodwill, ‘Why do you do such hard mental work; if you continue, you will fall ill.’”””” [Fat-he Islam, pp. 27–28 footnote, Ruhani Khaza’in, vol. 3, pp. 17–18](see also, the 2009 online edition of Tadhkirah, pages, 219-219).

Sir Syed Ahmad Khan then makes fun of MGA
See Dard, pages 215-216, footnotes:

“”””Sir Sayyid Ahmad Khan also made Ahmadas the target of his ridicule in his vanity and conceit. He offered to become his disciple and then go to Hyderabad where Ahmadas should show some of his false miracles and he would go round singing his praises. Then the State in its simplicity would give Rs. 10,000 out of which Sir Sayyid would have two-thirds and onethird
would be Ahmad’sas.

It is curious indeed to note here that Sir Sayyid was later on stricken
with sorrow and grief when he and his college suffered a loss of Rs. 1,05,490/- through Sham Bihari Lal. The shock nearly killed him. When Ahmadas knew from God that Sir Sayyid Ahmad Khan was approaching death he invited him to accept the truth by means of an Ishtihar dated
March 12th, 1897, but the world was too much with him. He had even discontinued offering the Salat and observing the fasts.”””

Who was Maulvi Muhammad Ismael?
MGA and other Ahmadiyya sources tell us that MGA was in Aligarh already when this Muslim Maulvi approached MGA and asked him to give a speech.  MGA agreed, however, MGA and other Ahmadiyya sources tell us that MGA was prevented by his GOD to give them speech, and thus he reneged.  However, the truth is that MGA was incapable.  Nevertheless, Maulvi Muhammad Ismael seems to have engaged MGA in some type of Mubahila contest.  He even wrote a book against MGA in 1889.  This might be the first instance of MGA conducting a Mubahila challenge with another Muslim.

Maulvi Muhammad Ismael was a liberal Maulvi who’s friend had visited MGA at Qadian and he says:

“Syed Ahmad Arab, who is my trusted friend, narrated to me, ‘I stayed with Hazrat Mirza in the company of a group of his trusted friends…and discovered that he possesses astrological
instruments that he puts to his use.’”

In response to this charge, MGA challenged Maulvi Muhammad Ismail of Aligarh to a
mubahalah.  MGA wrote:

“I have no recollection of any Syed Ahmad who stayed with me for two months. The onus of producing this person is on Maulvi sahib so that we can ask him face to face what instruments he has seen with me. There is really no need for an Arab, or non- Arab, to give evidence in this matter. I am still alive, so why don’t you, Maulvi sahib, come and stay with me for two months and see for yourself?” (see Mujadid e Azim again).

Ahmadiyya sources tell us that Maulvi Muhammad Ismael died a short while after
We have not confirmed this as of yet, however, Ahmadiyya sources should never be trusted.  Nevertheless, we have reported what they wrote.

Seeratul Mahdi on the Aligarh situation of 1889
At page no 72 of his book Seeratul Mahdi Vol-1, Bashir Ahmad writes that Hazrat sb went to Aligarh in 1889.  Abdullah Sinauri, Shaikh Hamid Ali and Mir Abbas Ludhianvi were with him. People in Aligarh arranged a lecture of Hazrat sb for which his approval was obtained in advance. An Ishtihar was published giving date, time and venue of the Lecture. When everything was ready and the time of Lecture came near, Hazrat sb refused to deliver the lecture by saying that Allah has stopped him from delivering this lecture. The organisers insisted and said, huzur cancellation of lecture would bring humiliation to us. But Hazrat sb remained firm and said he will not go against the will of God. So he stayed there for about seven days but did not deliver lecture.

In the early 1890’s, Mirza Ghulam Ahmad claimed that the British Government’s control of India would end in 8 years

MGA made many strange predictions about the future.  Another weird one is his prediction about the British Government.  He had a revelation in Persian which indicated that the British government would end its rule in India in 8 years.  Later on, this revelation was deleted by the Ahmadiyya editing team.  In Seeratul Mahdi,  Volume 1 page 68,  Mirza Bashir Ahmad mentioned three names Haji Abdul Majeed, Haifz Hamid Ali and Mian Abdullah Sanwari as witnessed that MGA received a revelation in which it was mentioned that rule British Government will end in 8 years. One out of these three witness (Mian Abdullah Sanauri) says that he remembers this revelation like it was etched in stone.  As time passed British Rule became stronger and stronger day by day. Mirza realized that he has fired a wrong bullet so in Roohani Khazain Volume 14 page 216 (Kashful Ghita) he denied this ILHAM altogether (see the scan in the below), it can also be found on pages 38-39 of the 1898 english edition of Kashf-ul-Ghita).  MGA denied this prophecy mainly because one of his friends informed of this prophesy to Molana Muhammad Hussain Batalvi and he published it in his magazine Ishaat us sunnah. Mirza got scared that his masters, the Britishers would not like this so he denied it.  We don’t have the original scan from that newspaper as of yet.  Nevertheless, Ahmadi’s archived this revelation of MGA after the Khalifa authenticated it in 1929.

Jalal ud Din Shams’ commentary on this persian revelation
Shams was an employee of the Mirza family and a major editor, you will see his notes all over the literature of the Ahmadiyya Movement.  He claims that this revelation was fulfilled via the death of Queen Victoria in 1901.  Shams doesn’t mention that this book was published in English in 1898.

Mirza Ghulam Ahmad used scribes

MGA never wrote anything. He was helped his entire life, he even had toilet attendants, many servants and other people to massage him all day. Moreover, he broke his right hand in his youth, and thus was never able to have full function of his right hand. In fact, MGA’s right hand was so weak, he couldn’t lift a simple cup of tea with it, he was thus forced to drink and eat with his left hand, which is unislamic and nasty. A few names of the scribes are Mirza Khuda Bakhsh and Abdul Karim. Another one bear the name of scribe as Pir Sirajul Haq, these names are given in Maktubat.

Friday Khutbah of Mirza Masroor Ahmad, 1-15-16
“””In olden days, it took a long time to compile books and many edits had to be done and the resources available were very limited. Hazrat Musleh Maud (ra) mentions how things were in those days. How the Promised Messiah (as) desired high quality. He talks about how he bore with patience the demands of the scribes. Talking about Mir Mahdi Hassan Sahib when he was not an Ahmadi. He says that Mir Sahib was incharge of the printing in the time of the Promised Messiah (as). When a book of the Promised MEssiah (as) was published he would read it with great care.

Promised Messiah (as) would reject a book even if smallest error was found in it and he would have a new one written. Then he would review the new one and if it too contained errors he would also reject it. And he would not permit a book to be published till he was certain that there was no error in it.

The Promised Messiah (as) would inquire why it took so long to publish and they would say Huzur there are still many errors in the proofs. The Promised Messiah (as) also wanted a clean and good thing produced and so he would never worry that the workers are just sitting around doing nothing waiting and consuming wages doing nothing. It was also his practice that if there was a small shortcoming in the book he would tear it and ask that it be rewritten. And the scribe would re write and till the quality was good he would not give the book for publication.

Initially the transcribers were not Ahmadi but eventually became Ahmadis and the good thing about them was that they recognized and correctly estimated the status of the Promised Messiah (as) and he recognized their worth. Despite not being Ahmadi whenever the Promised Messiah had their need they would be called to Qadian. In those days the wages were low, 25 rupees a month and an allowance for food.

The scribe had the habit that when the work was near an end he would come to the Promised Messiah (as) and say Huzur, I have come to submit my salaams and request leave to go home. The Promised Messiah (as) would ask, what is the hurry? The work of printing the books is ongoing still. We have need of scribes. The scribe would say Huzur I definitely need to go. The promised Messiah (as) would say there is still material that needs to be written down. The scribe would say Huzur here I have to make my own food and this takes up all my day, so I do not know whether I should make my food or do the writing. The Promised Messiah (as) would say to him to stay and provided him food from the Langar [the Promised Messiah’s public kitchen]. Thus he would get his 35 Rupees in wages and the food.

A few days later he would again come to the Promised Messiah and say that he has to go home and upon being asked why he would say that the food of the Langar is lacking and a man cannot do any work eating this food. So the Promised Messiah (as) would ask what should he do. He would say you should please give some money separately for this. The Promised Messiah (as) would raise wages by ten Rupees and say ok you will now receive 45 Rupees.

Then he would return ten days later saying I have come to submit my salaams and seek permission to go home. I spend all day cooking food how can I work. The Promised Messiah (as) would again ask so what should I do? And he would be told to arrange something at the Langarkhana. The Promised Messiah (as) would say ok you will keep receiving 45 rupees and will also start getting food from the Langarkhana. He would return to start work again.

Then he would return a few days later saying I have come to submit my salaams and seek permission to go home. Huzur would ask what is the matter and would say I cannot eat the food of the Langar you should increase my wages by ten more rupees and so the wages were increased to 55 rupees.

Similarly he employed other ways to get more money from Huzur but Huzur loved his writing and would tolerate all these but get him to do the writing. What this does show is how much care and worry the Promised Messiah (as) had for his books. He wanted that the teachings of Islam should be presented in the best manner possible.

We should strive to read the books of the Promised Messiah (as) especially. Our religious knowledge would increase thereby and a zeal would well up within us for conveying the message to others and our knowledge would also become blessed and we will become capable of bringing the world under the flag of Islam Ahmadiyyat.”””

MGA’s right arm was disabled, he cant be Sultan-ul-Qalam

Mirza Ghulam Ahmad was unable to do anything with his right arm.  Below is the reference.

Masroor’s Friday Khutbah of 1-15-16

“””Sometimes some people employing hast do not understand the finer points and formulate an opinion without delving into the thing fully. And then the faith of some weak natured persons also becomes affected as a result. Hazrat Musleh Maud mentions an incident. He says that once at a gathering an individual was drinking water with his left hand and I told him to not do so. He was told to drink with his right hand unless there is some valid reason. He said that the Promised Messiah (as) also used to drank water with his left hand whereas there was a reason for him to do this. And this was that the Promised Messiah (as) had fallen down in his youth and his right hand was injured so much so that although he could pick a glass with it he could not take it to the mouth to drink. Nevertheless to comply with the requirement of the sunnah [the practice of the Holy Prophet (sa)] he would drink with the left hand but he would give the hand support with his right hand.

The Promised Messiah (as) has mentioned the weakness of his right hand himself also. He says that once, in front of some people who were opponents, who had come for some discussion, I picked a glass or a cup of tea with the left hand and upon seeing this they made a criticism that you do not practice the sunnah and you are trying to drink holding the vessel with the left hand.

The Promised Messiah (as) himself says that hastiness and thinking ill forced the person to level this criticism at me whereas my hand is weak on account of the injury it had suffered and I cannot take the cup to my mouth for drinking from it with my right hand. Nevertheless I do definitely always place my right hand below the hand holding the vessel I am drinking from.

So while haste is making the enemy commit ill thinking those who belong to us their lack of understanding and haste has made them think that the Promised Messiah (as) was doing this deliberately. Whereas they should have tried to find the reason behind this and when Hazrat Musleh Maud (ra) had stopped them they should have stopped. These hasty decisions lead to innovation and incorrect commentaries.””””””””””
