Review of Religions, May and June of 1939, Professor Clement Lindley Wragge’s interview of MGA from 1908

Intro
Professor Clement Lindley Wragge was a renowned astronomer of his time. He lived in England, but in 1908 was visiting India as part of his world tour during which he gave lectures on astronomy to very large audiences. In May 1908, he stayed in Lahore for a short period. There he gave a lecture which was well attended, especially by many highly placed English people.  Mufti Mohammad Sadiq was also present and he met the professor after the lecture. He briefly explained to Professor Raig the proofs and arguments put forward by Hadhrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad (as) in support of his claim to be the Promised Messiah of his time. Upon hearing these the Professor wished to meet Hadhrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad (as) straight away. Mufti Sahib sought first to arrange a time with Hadhrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad (as) who gave his permission; the meeting took place after Zuhr prayers on 12th May 1908. Mufti Mohammad Sadiq acted as the interpreter and the conversation was originally recorded in Urdu.  The dialogues between the two are recorded in the Malfūzāt, the discourses of Ghulam Ahmad. Some of his followers believe that Wragge had converted to Islam and stayed a Muslim until his death. Proof of his conversion is cited by Ahmadiyya Muslim scholars in the form of letters written to Mufti Muhammad Sadiq, a companion of Ghulam Ahmad, by Prof. Wragge after his meeting with Ghulam Ahmad at Lahore.[12] However, more personal family records suggest that Wragge remained a theosophist up until his death in 1922.[13]

Why did Ahmadi’s lie and write that he converted to Ahmadiyya?
In typical Ahmadiyya pattern, Mufti Muhammad Sadiq claimed that Professor Clement Lindley Wragge converted to Ahmadiyya, Zafrullah Khan said the same.  The family of the Professor ended up telling the world that he was a theosophist.  Nevertheless, Ahmadiyya unofficial website people still claim that Wragge converted to Ahmadiyya in 1917.  Per Zikr-e-Habib, Muft Muhammad Sadiq claims that Wragge converted to Ahmadiyya while Sadiq was in England (1917).  However, this is a total lie.

The Review of Religions (ROR) of November 1931, Front page and pages 290-291

Intro
As we continue our work on Ahmadiyya in Kababir, we have collected an article from November of 1931 which gives us additional evidence.  It seems that Mirza Basheer-uddin Mahmud Ahmad had sent Jalal-ud-din Shams in roughly 1925 and had him return in 1931.  The Khalifa replaced him with another Ahmadi-Mullah, Maulvi Abul-Ata Allah Ditta, who was a new graduate of the Mullah-training-school in Qadian.

Summary
This report has lots of info on Islam in Palestine, Egypt and Syria, which were all property of the British Government.  It also tells us that before Jalal-uddin Shams, there was another Ahmadi-Mullah sent to Damascus.  His name was Syed Zainul-Abideen Wali-ullah Shah.  This person has never been mentioned before in the annals of Ahmadiyya literature.  Moreover, the British government forced Jalal-uddin Shams to leave the Damascus area and they seem to have directed him towards Kababir, wherein there was a family of Muslims living in a village.  Finally, a report of the operations of Ahmadiyya in Bengal is also given.

The Review of Religions (ROR) of January 1932, pages 30-34+images

Intro
My team and I continue to collect archival material on the Ahmadiyya Movement.  In this instance, we have found the ROR of 1923 and some specific pages.  This article in the ROR specifically tells us about Ahmadiyya operations in Syria, Egypt and Damascus.  To read additionally about this topic, read here: https://ahmadiyyafactcheckblog.com/2018/05/10/kababir-an-ahmadiyya-community-in-israel-by-ray-register-1970-hartford-seminary-foundation-thesis-dissertation/

Jalal-uddin Shams mentions hows Jews are taking over Palestine
Firstly, the British Government was administering these lands and was allowing Jews to move in and buy land.  The same British Government had helped Ahmadi’s in Israel and most likely led them to Kababir.

Cement of Superior quality?  From Kababir? 
Jalal-uddin Shams mentions how there was a huge family business in Kababir in cement work.  This seems to have been a multi-million dollar enterprise (by today’s standards).  Register mentions this fact also, it seems that the family that owned this business was totally converted to Ahmadiyya before Shams left.  However, Shams tells us that some Jewish people had bought and taken over this business.  We are not sure of the implications of this quite yet.

Review of Religions, August of 1932, “Factors which contribute to the success of a new religion and their application to the Ahmadiyya Movement”


Intro

My team and I have found an old edition of the Review of Religions (ROR) from August of 1932.  Malik Ghulam Farid was the editor in those days, he went on to write the 5-volume official commentary of the Quran, which can be found here.  Malik Ghulam Farid (1897–1977), was a notable Ahmadiyya scholar. He was deputed the task of preparing the 5 Volume The English Commentary of the Holy Quran,[1] in 1942, by Mirza Mahmood Ahmad, the second Khalifa.[2] He published the said Commentary in 1962. Later, in 1969, Malik published the Abridged Edition.[3] Malik Ghulam Farid also produced a Dictionary of the Holy Quran, but it could not be published in his lifetime. He died in 1977.[4]

The essay itself
Ahmadi’s claim that Mirza Basheer-uddin Mahmud Ahmad wrote this essay and many others, however, that’s a lie, he rarely wrote anything.  Just like MGA, he had his resident mullahs write everything, he was simply their figure head.  This is another case of exactly that.  In fact, Mirza Basheer-uddin Mahmud Ahmad claims to have written a Tafsir of the Quran, however, that’s a lie, it was really written by his Mullahs.

Important points made in the essay
1—The Ahmadi’s of Kababir are mentioned, it is possible that this is the first time that they were ever mentioned in the literature of Ahmadiyya.  Also see here: https://ahmadiyyafactcheckblog.com/2018/05/10/kababir-an-ahmadiyya-community-in-israel-by-ray-register-1970-hartford-seminary-foundation-thesis-dissertation/

2—The essay is essentially calling Ahmadiyya a new religion, and thus giving examples/criteria of how new religions have historically formed.

3—Qadian is backward province, and thus produced backward ideas.

4—MGA and his movement have always told people to follow their government (colonialism) and to never revolt.

5—MGA and his sons require Ahmadi’s to sacrifice their monies, time and children to the Ahmadiyya Movement.

6—Most Ahmadi’s pay between 10–30% of their earnings to Ahmadiyya aka the Mirza family.

Mirza Ghulam Ahmad claimed that his coming to Earth was revealed in Surah Fatiha!!! Review of Religions, Feb 1924



Intro

My team and I have written about the wild claims of MGA many times.  We have written how MGA was most likely planning on claiming to be a law-bearing prophet if he had lived to 1911.  Further, in the era of 1900 to possibly 1935, Ahmadi’s considered MGA to be equal to Muhammad (saw) (nauzobillah) and vice versa.  This article is a translation of some arabic writings of MGA, that seem to have been recovered in this era, and then translated by M. Rahim Baksh.  The Review of Religions, was edited by the Khalifa’s younger brother, Mirza Bashir Ahmad, who was the only college educated child of the mirza family by 1924.

Highlights of this article
1—MGA claims that his coming was actually revealed to Muhammad (saw) in Surah Fatiha.
2—MGA claims to be the final brick, in the house of prophets, not Muhammad (saw).
3—MGA claims that the Jews are an accursed people and that Muslims have become just like the Jews.
