Mirza Khuda Bakhsh was a pupil of Noorudin and must have been ordered by Noorudin to move-in with MGA at Qadian and help MGA respond to letters, read out newspaper to MGA and many other clerical duties. There were a few others like Mualvi Abdul Karim, who also moved in 1890-1891. Syed Muhammad Ahsan Amrohi also moved in in this time period. Maulvi Noorudin moved in with MGA in 1893, after he was hired from his job in Jammu. Mufti Muhammad Sadiq also came and went into MGA’s house with respect and ease since 1889. Maulvi Muhammad Ali moved-in with MGA in roughly 1889. MGA‘s in-laws also lived exclusively with him in his mansion, they are Mir Nasir Nawab and his entire family. Khwaja Kamal ud Din was MGA’s main lawyer, there were many others who formed up this team, the number is mostly like 20+.
Maulvi Muhammad Ahsan Amrohi was initially working as a Mullah in the state of Bhopal, he worked exclusively for Nawab Siddiq Hasan Khan, who was the husband of the Queen of Bhopal, it seems that MGA sent him his Braheen-e-Ahmadiyya, I am not sure which volume, however, Nawab Siddiq Hasan Khan tore up the book and sent it back to MGA in that condition.
Ahsan Amrohi was also considered as one of the angels that the Messiah descended with. He was a member of the Ahl-e-Hadith sect and was working in Bhopal, India as an imam. In 1878, the Ahl-e-Hadith founder (Nawab Siddiq Hasan Khan)and his donated heavily to MGA and his Barahin-i-Ahmadiyya series, which promised 500 arguments in support of Islam. By 1891, he had moved to Qadian for employment, he lived exclusively with MGA in his mansion. By 1907, MGA was claiming that he knew all along that Ahsan Amrohi would move to Qadian. When MGA died, he was in Lahore and witnessed the whole scene. By 1914, he had initially sided with the Qadiani-Ahmadi’s. However, by 1915, he had switched sides and had become a Lahori-Ahmadi. He was dead by 1919, his age was unknown. We are guessing 80+.

MGA knew Maulvi Abdul Karim since his days at Sialkot in the early 1860’s. Further, he knew Nooruddin and Mufti Sadiq and worked for Nooruddin as an employee in Jammu. Nevertheless, when he moved to Qadian in 1891, he lived on the 3rd floor with his wife in MGA’s house. Further, I am sure that his wife, as well as Noorudin’s wife and MGA’s wife all ate together and raised their kids together, hence, there seem to be 20 people living in MGA’s house by 1892.
Here are some names of the main ghost writing team, Maulvi Abdul Karim, Maulvi Mufti Muhammad Sadiq, Maulvi Sher Ali and Hakim Fazl Din of Bhera. Some other people who came independently, yet still joined MGA’s team was 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 founder 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. Maulvi Muhammad Ali was another, however, he came via Khwaja Kamaluddin and the prominent Ahmadi’s of Lahore.

As we all know, MGA employed many ghost writers. They were, Nooruddin, Mufti Sadiq, Muhammad Ali, Maulvi Abdul Kareem, The Amrohi, and many many more. All of these people lived with MGA, and thus knew of all of MGA’s habits. They were all employees and were promised many fortunes. Muhammad Ali lived in close-quarters with MGA and his sons and his entire family, in-fact, Muhammad Ali’s wife also lived with him and she must have interacted with the family of Nooruddin, Abdul Kareem and many others who were also living there.

In 2022, there are barely 5-10 Ahmadi’s in all of Lebanon, there are no Ahmadi missionaries and no Ahmadiyya temples, in fact, they are not allowed to even register as a religious community. In 1958, via “Our Foreign Missions” 1961 edition, by Mirza Mubarak Ahmad, grandson of MGA, there is an entry for Lebanon wherein they allege that there is an ahmadiyya missionary working in Lebanon.
As we all know, Noorudin, Maulvi Abdul Karim and MGA were all influenced by the writings of Sir Syed. Sir Syed denied all miracles in Islam by 1880, he denied the Islamic creation theory, the return of Esa (as), the arrival of the Mahdi, the physicality of the Mir’aj, all the hadith work, etc etc etc. Obviously, Noorudin and Abdul Karim knew each other in 1880 and in the below I present data which proves this fact. They would all eventually join MGA’s team of Mullahs and ghost writers, Maulvi Abdul Karim, Maulvi Mufti Muhammad Sadiq, Maulvi Sher Ali, Hakim Fazl Din of Bhera, Noorudin and many others. Some other people who came independently, yet still joined MGA’s team was 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 founder of the Ahl-e-Hadith sect, Syed Nazeer Husain from Delhi and Siddiq Hasan Khan of Bhopal. Maulvi Muhammad Ali was another, however, he came via Khwaja Kamaluddin and the prominent Ahmadi’s of Lahore.
Sir Syed began publishing his commentary of the Quran in 1880, however, the section which concerns Esa (as) was published (see Nuzhat Haneef) in 1882, MGA almost immediately began calling himself as “like-esa” or “Maseel-e-Maseeh”. It’s important to note that it was Noorudin who urged MGA to do so. Later on, MGA also copied Sir Syed’s swoon theory and passed it off as his own (see Jesus in India, 1908 and Nuzhat Haneef). MGA also attracted lots of people who were already following Sir Syed’s new ideas on Islam, like Maulvi Abdul Karim and others. Sir Syed also denied the entire concept of the Mahdi in this era. The truth is that MGA knew about the new beliefs of Sir Syed as early as 1872 and began to slowly adopt them. However, he lied about his true beliefs from 1876–1890. Check out the books on Islam by Sir Syed herein from 1857-1870. Afzal Upal has revealed in his book on Ahmadiyya that MGA was actually writing letters to Sir Syed back in the early 1860’s, when he was employed in Sialkot (see page 112). Sir Syed Ahmad Khan (spelled Sir Sayyad Ahmad of Aligarh) is mentioned in detail in the ROR of June-1933.
Like I have written before, MGA and his team copied from Sir Syed on almost every single topic, except Jesus in India, that was tooo ridiculous for any human to conjure up. In this specific case, I have a scan from the writings of Sir Syed, pre–1891, wherein he says that all hadith on the Mahdi are weak and unreliable. In 1891, MGA claimed to be “jesus”, he then downgraded all hadith on the Mahdi and called them as unreliable. However, once he heard about the eclipses, he quickly found a super unreliable hadith and called it as reliable and thus made the claim of being the only Mahdi who was to come.
He was born in 1859-1918. Mir Hamid Shah was the son of Mir Hisamuddin (also spelled Hassam ud Din)(MGA called him the Chief of Sialkot), who was MGA’s old friend from his days at Sialkot (1863/4-1868). Per Ahmadiyya sources (Ahmadipedia) Mir Hamid Shah of Sailkot pledged allegiance to Mirza Ghulam Ahmad on 29 December 1890. His wife Feroza Begum pledged allegiance on 7 February 1892. In 1896, he was listed as companion #13 and his names is spelled as Sayyid Hamid Shah, Sialkot (See Dard). MGA mentioned him in Izala-e-Auham, Asmani Faislah, Aina-e-Kamalat-e-Islam, Tohfa-e-Qaisariyyah, Siraj-e-Munir, Kitab-ul-Bariyyah, Haqiqatul-Wahi, and Malfuzat Volume 5.
By 1899, Mir Hamid Shah was working as a Deputy Superintendent, District Sialkot. 10 years later, in 1906, MGA makes him a member of the 14-man Sadr Anjuman. In 1914, the split happened and he delayed his bait with the 2nd Khalifa. Soon thereafter, the 2nd Khalifa made him a member of the 8-man “Anjuman Tarraqi Islam”. 4 years later, during the raging of the Spanish Flu, he died.
The “Sadr Anjuman”, which literally translates as “President-Council” was created by MGA in his book, “The Will” at the end of 1905 and beginning of 1906. MGA had clearly put all of the power of the community into a body of 14 men. Maulvi Noorudin was the President, at least 5-6 were family members of MGA….through marriage or otherwise…The reference for this entry is (See Muhammad Ali, A Mighty Striving, PAGE 52). In 1907, there was a famous incident wherein the father-in-law (Mir Nasir Nawab) of MGA clashed with a decision of the Sadr Anjuman, MGA then issued an order that all decisions of the Anjuman would be final.
The members of the Sadr Anjuman didn’t change until 1910 (the full list of members is posted in the below). In 1910, Noorudin, the Khalifa resigned from this position as President and got Mirza Basheer ud Din Mahmud Ahmad elected as President without a vote (See “Truth About The Split”, online english edition, pages 266-267). That dropped the number of people from 14 to 13. Ahmadiyya sources tell us that Mir Muhammad Ishaq became a voting member in 1912. Thus giving the Mirza family 5 of the 14 voting members.
Nowadays, the head of this Council is called Nazre Aala (Executive Director). The Anjuman consists of various Nazarats (departments) like Treasury, Education, Justice, Properties, Propagation, Pensions, Guidance, Publication, Finance, and General Welfare. A Nazir (Director) heads each of the departments. The head offices of the Council are located in Qadian & Rabwah.
