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

Intro
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.

Mirza Ghulam Ahmad and the Splitting of the Moon incident of Muhammad

Intro
MGA copied Sir Syed’s entire playbook when it came to denying miracles and the unlimited abilities of Allah.  It was Sir Syed who first wrote that Esa (as) was dead and never returning, he also wrote that the concept of the “Mahdi” was totally false and nothing more than Muslims exaggerating about their greatness.  Ahmadi’s are known to waffle on this subject and many more.  Normally, Ahmadi’s reject all miracles and give them a “rational-explanation”, totally downgrading their status as miracles.  MGA had the famous incident of the red drops appearing out of thin air, this was boasted by MGA as a total miracle with divine help.  However, this was in the 1886 era and MGA hadn’t totally rejected miracles as of yet.  In fact, in 1886, in MGA’s book, “Surma chashma Arya”, MGA defended the physicality of the splitting of the moon by saying that all the laws of Allah are unknown, this was another written debate that MGA had, the very first argument made by the hindus was the falsity of the splitting of the moon argument, MGA defended the common Muslim position, which was that it was a physical miracle, he did the same in terms of the miraculous Birth of Jesus also, he also defended the fire-incident that was related about Abraham, MGA also called that a physical miracle.  MGA waited til 1891, then, he rejected the physicality of the Miraaj, and many other miracles that were divinely ordained.  In terms of the splitting of the moon, it comes from the Quran, Chapter 54:1-2.  It is also mentioned in many Sahih hadiths.  In 1892, in Ainah Kamalate Islam, MGA again concurred that Muhammad (saw) did in fact pray for miracles and had many, the splitting of the moon is mentioned, however, at this juncture, MGA and his team didn’t go into detail, they also mentioned how Muhammad (saw) was able to feed many and hydrate many from a simple cup or bucket (see the reference in the below).  It seems that MGA was publicly lying, he rejected all miracles, however, in 1892, he was paying lip service, just like he did on the topic of prophethood.  In Malfuzat, Volume-1, MGA is recorded 4-5 times confirming that the splitting of the moon and other miracles were physical, just not understood by humans yet, MGA even admonished people who counter-argued that this miracle was simply a type of Lunar Eclipse (see page 137). After MGA died, in Braheen-e-Ahmadiyya Volume-5, MGA’s team of writers dismissed the physicality of the splitting of the moon and called it a type of lunar eclipse.

1886, Surmah Chasma Aryah
In this book of MGA, he discusses the splitting of the moon, see pages 14-17.  For a better reference, see the ROR of February 2006:

“”””We wish to point out that the miracle of the splitting of the moon is not an event that the Muslims put forth as proof of the truth of Islam and as a principal argument in support of the truth of the Holy Qur’an. Out of thousands of internal and external miracles and signs, this was also a natural sign which is supported by historical proof. If overlooking clear proofs we are to suppose that this miracle has not been established, and if we are to interpret the relevant verse of the Holy Quran as the Christians or the followers of nature, or those who repudiate external events interpret it it would do no harm to Islam.  The truth is that the Word of God has wholly relieved the Muslims of the need of relying upon other miracles. It is not only a miracle in itself, but on account of its blessings and lights, it produces m i r a c l e s .

The Holy Qur’an comprises in itself such perfect qualities that it is in no need of extraordinary
miracles. The presence of external miracles adds nothing to it and their absence would disclose no defect in it. The beauty of the Qur’an is not decked out with the ornaments of external miracles. It comprises in itself thousands of strange and wonderful miracles
which can be witnessed by the people of every age. It is not necessary to refer only to the past.
The Qur’an is such a beautiful beloved that everything derives ornamentation from it and it is not dependent upon anything else for its own ornamentation.

Those who object to the miracle of the splitting of the moon have only one instrument to make, and even that a broken one, that the splitting of the moon is contrary to the law of nature. The
followers of the law of nature contend that it is obvious that so far as a man can find by the
exercise of his reason there is nothing apart from nature in the law of nature, that is to say, the
observation of the universe indicates that everything material and non-material by which we are
surrounded is part of a wonderful system for its existence and continuance and for its eff e c t .
This system is inherent in everything and never departs from anything. Whatever nature has designed will happen without fail in the same way.

We accept all that, but does it prove that Divine methods are their law are limited to that which
is our observation and experience no more? To believe that Divine Power is unlimited is of the
essence of the Divine system; it ensures that the door of intellectual progress should always remain open. Then what a mistake it is to put forward the proposition that whatever is beyond our understanding or observation is outside the law of nature! When we confess that the laws of nature are unending and unlimited, it should be our attitude that we should not reject every new thing because it is beyond our reason. We should assess the matter on its proof or lack of proof. If it is proved we should enter it in the list of the laws of nature, and if it is not proved we should confine ourselves to affirming that it is not proved. We would not be entitled to say that it is outside the law of nature. To hold anything as being beyond the law of nature, it is necessary that we should encompass all Divine laws which are eternal as within a circle and our intellect should fully comprehend all that God’s Power has revealed from the beginning up to now and that He will reveal through Eternity….

We believe that the Powers ofGod Almighty are unlimited, then it would be madness to hope to
encompass all His Powers. For if they can be confined within the measure of our observation, then how would they be unlimited and unending? In such case, we are not only confronted with the difficulty that our finite and incomplete experience should comprehend all the Powers of the
Eternal God, but there would arise a much greater difficulty that by limiting His Powers He Himself would also be limited and we would be affirming that we have discovered all the reality of God Almighty and that we have arrived at its depth and bottom.  Such an assumption would be
disrespectful and destructive of faith and would amount to a total denial of God. (Surmah Chashm Arya, Ruhani Khaza’in, Vol. 2, pp. 60-65).  

1886
Surmah Chashma Arya is nothing more than the written debate that MGA had with Murlinder at his own house in Qadian with some Hindus.  The Hindus attacked the miracle of the splitting of the moon and MGA defended the orthodox Islamic position.  MGA never changed this belief until he died.  After MGA died, it was downgraded as a lunar eclipse of sorts (see BA5).

1890
“””Let it be known that the miracles of Prophets are of two kinds: (1) Those that are purely heavenly phenomena, in which human design and reason play no part, such as the miracle of the splitting of the moon, a miracle of our lord and master, the Holy Prophetsa. God manifested this miracle through His infinite power to manifest the majesty of His true and perfect Prophetsa. (2) Miracles of wisdom. These are manifested with the help of the extraordinary wisdom that only comes from Divine revelation. An example of this is the miracle of Solomon referred to in the verse

A palace paved smooth with slabs of glass.—Al-Naml, 27:45

which was witnessed by Queen Sheba and she was consequently blessed with faith.”””
[Izala-e-Auham, Ruhani Khaza’in, vol. 3, pp. 253-254, footnote](See Also Essence of Islam, Vol. 5, page 32).  

1891-1892
In MGA’s book, “Three Questions by a Christian and their Answers”, he again confirms that the splitting of the moon which was referred to in 54: 1-3, really happened, MGA even refers his readers to his book, Surma Chashma Arya (See pages 30-34).

 

1892, MGA comments on the miracle of the splitting of the moon
“”””When a person arrives at this exalted stage of meeting with God, he sometimes performs acts which appear to be beyond human power and have the colour of Divine Power. For instance, during the battle of Badr, the Holy Prophet [peace and blessings of Allah be on him] threw a handful of gravel at the opposing force not accompanied by any prayer, but with his own spiritual power, which affected the opposing force in such an extraordinary manner that everyone’s eyes were struck by the gravel and they were rendered sightless and began to run around in confusion and helplessness. This miracle is referred to in the verse:

al-Anfal, 8:18

When you threw the handful of pebbles, it was not you who did throw, but it was Allah Who threw;

Meaning that it was Divine Power that was working behind the scene and it did that which was not within human power. 

In the same way, another miracle of the Holy Prophet [peace and blessings of Allah be on him] which was the splitting of the moon, was displayed by Divine Power. It was not accompanied by any prayer as it happened merely by his pointing at the moon with his finger which was filled with Divine power. There are many other miracles which the Holy Prophet [peace and blessings of Allah be on him] worked purely with his power and which were not accompanied by any prayer. On many occasions, he multiplied water so much by dipping his fingers into a cup of water that the whole host and their camels and horses drank of it and yet the original quantity of the water was not diminished. On many occasions, by putting his hand upon three or four loaves of bread, he satisfied the hunger of thousands. On some occasions, he blessed a small quantity of milk with his lips and a company of people drank from it and were filled. On some
occasions, by adding his saliva into a well of brackish water, he rendered it sweet. On some occasions, he healed severely wounded people of their injuries by placing his hands upon them. On some occasions, he replaced the eyeballs of people which had fallen out in consequence of some injury received in battle and healed them with the blessings of his hand. In this way, he did many other things by his personal power behind which worked Divine Power.

If the Brahmus and the philosophers and the followers of nature of today refuse to accept these miracles, they are to be excused for they cannot recognize the station at which a human being is endowed with Divine power by way of reflection. If they laugh at these things they are also to be excused for they have not progressed beyond their childish condition and have not reached any degree of spiritual maturity. Their condition is far from perfect and they are happy that they should die in that imperfect condition.

But one pities the Christians, who having heard of some similar, but of a lower degree of, events in the life of Jesus, put them forward as an argument in support of the divinity of Jesus and allege that the reviving of the dead by Jesus and the healing of paralytics and lepers by him was by his own power and not by any prayer, and that this is proof that he was truly the son of God and even God himself. It is a pity that they are unaware that if a human being could become God by performing such exploits then our lord and master, the Holy Prophet
[peace and blessings of Allah be on him] was much more entitled to such divinity for he performed mightier miracles than were displayed by Jesus. Not only did the Holy Prophet [peace and blessings of Allah be on him] work these extraordinary miracles himself, but left a legacy of a long series of them among his followers till the Day of Judgement, which has been in evidence always in all ages and will continue to be in evidence till the end of the world. The impress of Divine power which has been experienced by holy souls among the Muslims is difficult to match from among other people. Then what folly is it to believe in someone as God or as the son of God, on account of these extraordinary events. If a man can become God by performing such exploits, there would be no end to the number of gods!”””
[A’ina-e-Kamalat-e-Islam, Ruhani Khaza’in, Vol. 5, pp. 65-67] 
(via Essence of Islam, Vol. 1, pages 274-276)

 

1891-1899, Malfuzat, vol. 1, p. 72, Via Essence of Islam, Vol. 5, page 28
Remember, Malfuzat wasn’t published until the 1960’s.  This seems to be from a portion of the book which represents 1891-1899.

“””The truth of the matter is that God Almighty does not do anything against the laws of nature. What He does is that He creates the causes, whether we know of them or not, and these are always present. Hence, miracles, such as splitting of the moon and

Turn cold, O Fire, and be a source of peace.—Al-Anbiya’, 21:70. (This verse refers to the miracle whereby the fire became cold when Abrahamas was thrown into it.)

are also no exceptions. Rather, they too resulted from some very subtle and hidden means,
and were based on true and factual science. Shortsighted people and those who are enamoured of dark philosophy cannot comprehend these things.””””

1904, in Maulvi Noorudin’s famous self biography entitled, Nur ud Din
On page 146 of this book, as quoted and translated by Zafrullah Khan, Noorudin wrote that he never believed that the fire mentioned in 21:70 was simply the fire of opposition.  However, MGA seems to have disagreed and still believed it to be a physical phenomenon.

Oct. 1908, Braheen e Ahmadiyya vol. 5 (BA5)
In BA5, MGA and his team of writers calls the splitting of the moon as a type of lunar eclipse (see pages 106-107).  Thus, after MGA died, the editing work began.

1917, Muhammad Ali denies the physicality of the splitting of the moon
In Muhammad Ali’s famous 1917 edition of this Commentary on the Quran, he opines that this event was really a lunar eclipse of sorts, thus copying the answer from BA5.

1920, Mirza Bashir Ahmad’s biography on the life of Muhammad
In this era, Mirza Bashir Ahmad seems to have been co-editing the ROR.  In the Urdu version of the ROR, he began writing a biography of Muhammad under the title, ‘Our Master”.  When he reached the topic of the splitting of the moon, he totally rejected the physicality of it and claimed it simply appeared as such to those Muslims and non-Muslims who saw it (see page 233-237).  This book was translated into english via the English ROR of 2010 and then published as a book.

The 5-volume commentary of the Quran
The Qadiani branch claims that it was only meant to appear as split, it was never physically split (see page 2523).

Muhammad Ali and the Lahori branch denied the physicality of the splitting of the moon in 1917
In Muhammad Ali’s famous commentary of 1917, he totally denied the physicality of the splitting of the moon (see 54:1-3).

Zamakhshari
Al-Zamakhshari, a commentator of the Qur’an, acknowledged the splitting of the moon as one of Muhammad’s miracles. But he also suggested that the splitting might take place only on the day of judgment.[4]

Ibn Kathir

The classical commentator Ibn Kathir provides a list of the early traditions mentioning the incident: A tradition transmitted on the authority of Anas bin Malik states that Muhammad split the moon after the pagan Meccans asked for a miracle. Another tradition from Malik transmitted through other chains of narrations, mentions that the mount Nur was visible between the two parts of the moon (Mount Nur is located in Hijaz. Muslims believe that Muhammad received his first revelations from God in a cave on this mountain, Cave Hira’). A tradition narrated on the authority of Jubayr ibn Mut’im with a single chain of transmission says that the two parts of the moon stood on two mountains. This tradition further states that the Meccan responded by saying “Muhammad has taken us by his magic… If he was able to take us by magic, he will not be able to do so with all people.” Traditions transmitted on the authority of Ibn Abbas briefly mention the incident and do not provide much details.[2] Traditions transmitted on the authority of Abdullah bin Masud describe the incident as follows:[2][11]

We were along with God’s Messenger at Mina, that moon was split up into two. One of its parts was behind the mountain and the other one was on this side of the mountain. God’s Messenger said to us: Bear witness to this 039:6725

The narrative was used by some later Muslims to convince others of the prophethood of Muhammad. Annemarie Schimmel for example quotes the following from Muslim scholar Qadi Iyad who worked in the 12th century:[6]

It has not been said of any people on the earth that the moon was observed that night such that it could be stated that it was not split. Even if this had been reported from many different places, so that one would have to exclude the possibility that all agreed upon a lie, yet, we would not accept this as proof to the contrary, for the moon is not seen in the same way by different people… An eclipse is visible in one country but not in the other one; in one place it is total, in the other one only partial.

“The Philosophy of the Teachings of Islam”–the real story

Intro
We present an evaluation of this lecture/book.  Be advised, we only have Ahmadiyya sources on this specific topic, hence, most of this background data is dubious, however, Ahmadiyya sources do quote 5-6 British newspapers which only indicate that this event did take place and MGA’s speech was read out and applauded heavily (see Hidden Treasures).  In reality, this book was penned by MGA’s team at Qadian and delivered in a speech at Lahore by Maulvi Abdul KareemKhawaja Kamal uddin Sahib [who later left Qadiani Jama’at] brought a message to MGA that they should write something. MGA was sick as usual, he seems to have ordered his team to write something for this occasion.  Khawaja Sahib was not happy with the exposition and expressed a sense of hopelessness and felt it would be mocked and derided (See Dard pages 477-478). However, Ahmadi sources claims that their God had already informed MGA that his exposition would excel so he had some posters published about the exposition and assured Khawaja Sahib about it and asked him to put up the posters in Lahore. Khawaja Sahib had made his mind up about the exposition so he withheld putting up the posters and only did so at the very end when others insisted. He put up a few posters high up on walls the night before so that no one could see them because he thought the exposition was not worthy to be read at the convention.  The conference was eventually held on December 26, 27, 28, 1896, and it was extended to December 29.  However, when the exposition was read out at the convention, as we know, MGA’s paper won, however, the judges were overly sympathetic to ahmadiyya, in fact, the person who gave up his time so that Nooruddin could keep reading was Maulvi Mubarak Ali of Sialkot, who had many sympathies to the Ahmadiyya Movement.  The appointed time for the exposition passed but the audience remained ever eager. The time was extended, so much so that in order to accommodate the exposition the convention had to be extended by a day.  Khawaja Sahib was an educated man, he was a lawyer, and he knew that this paper was not good at all.  This story is also covered by Muhammad Ali and Mirza Basheer-ud-Din Mahmud in the era of 1915-1924, as they criticized each other extensively.

MGA writes that if someone’s wife even speaks to another man, the man should divorce her
Another gem from MGA, he claims that even if another man talks to someone’s wife, that is grounds for divorce.

Eating Pork/swine = immoral acts and leads to homosexuality
This famous Ahmadi argument was invented in this book.

It was published from London
The book was published in London as “The Teachings of Islam” in 1910″, translated by Muhammad Ali.  Muhammad Ali signs off the Preface as May 1910.  He also erroneously writes that the translation was continued in the ROR of 1903, however, it wasn’t.  The October-1902 edition of the ROR contains the final portion of the english translation.  It was first translated into english in the March 1902 edition of the English-ROR (see pages 81 to 100) and the April edition of the same year (see pages 121-140), the June edition, pages 209-237, the July edition pages, 253-265, the August edition, pages, 292-297, the October edition, pages 383-389.

In this same year, it seems to have been used at the famous conference of 1910, Mufti Sadiq and many other high ranking Ahmadi’s attended.

Who is Muhammadi Begum? 1875–1966

Intro
Per Ahmadiyya sources she was a triple-niece of MGA.  MGA was her uncle in 3 ways and maybe more, MGA’s sister was married to her paternal big uncles.  Per Ahmadiyya sources, she was born in 1874/75 (see Dard, page 330).  She was thus 13-14 when MGA was asking to marry her per Ahmadiyya sources, however, she was most likely 9-10.  MGA had most likely seen her as an infant, since he was her uncle in 3-4 ways, thus, he had seen her a lot.  MGA and Mirza Ahmad Baig seem to have been friendly to each other even after MGA had his war with his cousins over land.  Nevertheless, in 1888, Mirza Ahmad Baig met with MGA and asked MGA to sign over “lucrative” property rights which belonged to MGA’s cousin, Mirza Ghulam Hussain, who had went missing around 1865, and was co-incidentally married to Mirza Ahmad Baig’s sister.  MGA responded by asking to marry Mirza Ahmad Baig’s 13-14-year old daughter, Mirza Ahmad Baig immediately refused.  This kicked off a public war wherein the entire Mirza family was opposed to MGA.  In fact, it is not too far-fetched to say that the life and career of MGA was shaped by his love of Muhammadi Begum.  Birth of sons, death threats against others, Batalvi feud, Christian feud (Christian paper published letters to Muhammadi Begum family) which led to the Atham saga, which then led to the maseel maseeh and maseeh mauood stuff.  MGA kept upping the ante.  The whole ‘promised son’ seems like a ruse to get Muhammadi Begum’s dad interested in him, implying that if Muhammadi Begum marries MGA, the son would be the inheritor to all of his spiritual and worldly legacy.

January 1886
In 1888 MGA claims that he mentioned a prophecy to Mirza Ahmad Baig a few years back (See Dard, page 172).  However, this is lie.  MGA was on good relations with Mirza Ahmad Baig until his father died and court cases were issued between the Mirza family in terms of land disbursement wherein MGA lost (1884).

Feb, 20th 1886
MGA publishes his famous announcement vs. Lekh Ram and about the Promised Son.  By 1888, MGA was connecting his proposed marriage with Muhammadi Begum to this prophecy also.  

June 8th, 1886
MGA writes letters to Noorudin wherein he claims that his God is ordering him to marry again for a 3rd time, and to thus have 3 wives.  These were published after MGA died , hence, they are tampered with.

June 20th, 1886
MGA writes another letter to Nooruddin wherein he says that he is afraid that he is commanded by his God to marry a 3rd time, and this is unavoidable (See Dard pages 173-174) .

February of 1888
Ahmadiyya sources tell us that in roughly February of 1888, Mirza Ahmad Baig seems to have came to Qadian and asked MGA to make a deal.  The issue was that Mirza Ahmad Baig’s sister (Imam Bibi) had been married to MGA’s cousin: Mirza Ghulam Hussain.  Mirza Ghulam Hussain had went missing for roughly 25 years.  He had lots of land in his and his wife’s possession, his wife possessed it for 25 years, however, per the rules of the Mirza family (Not Islam), if a person died with no heir, his land would revert to other family members.  However, this is unislamic, we are unsure where this tradition came from, however, the Mirza family was always playing his land-grabbing game.  Mirza Ahmad Baig and his sister (Imam Bibi) knew that when Imam Bibi would die, the land would revert to MGA at 50% (+Mirza Sultan Ahmad) and 50% to his cousins (see Nuzul ul Masih, via the 2009 online edition of Tadhkirah, pages 190-191) .  MGA knew that Mirza Ahmad Baig was desperate for concessions.  MGA then asked for his daughter in exchange for signing over the property to Mirza Ahmad Baig’s sister.

May 10th, 1888
The maternal uncles of Muhammadi Begum, Mirza Nizam-ud-Din and Mirza Imam-ud-Din, and also others of their party, not only publicized this matter verbally but also had Hazrat Mirza’s letters printed in newspapers to ensure the widest publicity.  Thus, the Nur Afshan published a letter from MGA to Ahmad Baig (See Dard, page 172).

June 1888
The Arya Patrika, Lahore, page 5 also covered the story (See Dard, page 172).

July 10th, 1888
In his Ishtihar he declared that if she was not married to MGA her father would die within three years of her marriage to anyone else, and her husband would die within 30 months and that other calamities would also overtake the family. This was to be a sign for MGA’s cousins and relations, who dared to flout the authority of the Supreme Being (See Dard, page 330).

July 15th, 1888
MGA publishes another announcement about his cousins and their upcoming deaths.

August 1888
By August of 1888, the entire Mirza family was against MGA and his marriage proposal for his niece.  The list includes all family members of MGA, which includes both of his sons, and all of his cousins (see Mujadid e Azim, online abridged version, pages 228-268, specifically page 253).

Aug 1888 to July 1890
2 years of total silence on this topic.  However, in the background, MGA was trying to bribe other cousins of his to help him get this niece of his tied into a marriage situation.

Izala Auham, roughly 1890, page 198
“”””By way of prophecy the Exalted God revealed it to this humble one that ultimately the elder daughter of Mirza Ahmad Beg, son of Mirza Ghulam Beg of Hoshiarpur would be married to me. These people would resort to great hostility and would place obstacles in the way, but in the end, it would surely take place. The Exalted God would, by all possible means, bring her to me, whether as a virgin or a widow, and would remove all impediments, and would, of necessity, fulfil this task, and none would be able to prevent it.”””

July 17th, 1890
MGA wrote a letter to Mirza Ahmad Baig offering him condolence at the death of his son, Mahmud (See Dard, page 331).

April 7th, 1892
Muhammedi Begum was married to Sultan Muhammad (see Dard, page 334).

July 1892
MGA was dreaming about multiple women, this may have been an indication of the eventual fate of Muhammadi Begum (see the 2009 online edition of Tadhkirah, see pages 256-257).

September 30, 1892
Mirza Ahmad Baig dies (See the 2009 online edition of Tadhkirah, page 188).

February 1893
Ainah Kamalat-e-Islam is published which contains MGA’s prophecy about Mirza Ahmad Baig and Muhammadi Begum.  

The winter of 1893
MGA and his team of writers mentions the death of Mirza Ahmad Baig as a sign of MGA’s truth.  See “Shahada-tul Quran”, in english as “Testimony of the Quran”, see here a link to the english translation by the Lahori-Ahmadi’s.

“””(1) Mirza Ahmad Baig of Hoshiarpur should die within the limit of three years; (2) then his son-in-law, the husband of his elder daughter, should die within two and a half years; (3) Mirza Ahmad Baig should not die before the day of his daughter’s wedding; (4) the daughter too must not die before she is married, and then widowed, and then married a second time; (5) my humble self too should not die till all these events take place; (6) and then she should be married to myself. Obviously these events are not in human control. [Note 6]”””””

1894
Via the Ishaat us Sunnah magazine, Mirza Sultan Muhammad (the husband of Muhammadi Begum) called MGA a liar and a Kafir.

1897
In Anjam-e-Athim, MGA mentions his prophecy vs. his cousins and other close relations.

1901
MGA mentions the faliure of the Muhammadi Begum prophecy but claims that he will marry her as widow.

1902
Ahmadiyya newspapers report on 18 August 1902: Mirza Ahsan Baig formally requested to be part of the Ahmadiyya Jamaat. He was the grandson of Mirza Ahmad Baig, son-in-law of Mirza Ahmad Baig and brother-in-law of Muhammadi Begum.  He was married to one of the younger sisters of Muhammadi Begum.

Oct-1902
“””About eighteen years ago, I had an opportunity to visit Maulavi Muhammad Husain Batalavi, Editor of Isha‘atus- Sunnah at his house. He asked me whether I had received any revelation lately and I mentioned to him the revelation, which I had already mentioned several times to my friends:

[Arabic] A virgin and a widow.

I interpreted this to him and to all others to mean that: God has intended to bring two women to me in marriage—the first time a virgin and the second time a widow. The first part of the revelation, relating to a virgin, has been fulfilled By Allah’s grace, I have four sons from that wife. I await fulfilment of the part about the widow. “””[Tiryaqul-Qulub, p. 34, Ruhani Khaza’in, vol. 15, p. 201](See Also, the 2009 online edition of Tadhkirah, pages 50-51).

1907
In “Haqiqatul Wahy”, MGA mentions Mirza Ahmad Baig on pages, 219-220, 231, 233, 237, 238, 280, 492, 493, 576, 577, 696, 697, 710, 714, 715.  MGA basically says that even though Muhammadi Begum was still alive and married with children, the prophecy was conditional and thus fulfilled.

June-July 1908, Nooruddin comments on the failed prophecy of Muhammadi Begum
“””Now, I would like to remind all the Muslims who have had and still have faith in the Noble Qur’an that since those addressed in it include also their offsprings, successors and those like them, then, can this prophecy not include the daughter, of Ahmad Beg, or the daughter of that daughter ? Does your law of inheritance not apply the regulations regarding daughters to their daughters ? And are the offsprings of the Mirza not his agnates ? I had often told dear Mian Mahmood (Mian Bashiruddin Mahmood, a son of the Mirza and the second head of the Qadiani movement after Hakim Nuruddin. ) that even if the Mirza were to die and this girl did hot enter into his wedlock, my adoration of him would remain unshaken.”””” (Review of Religions, Vol. VII, no. 726, June and July, 1908, p. 279 (cited from Qadiani Mazhab).

October 1908
Braheen-e-Ahmadiyya Vol. 5 is published.  MGA mentions Ahmad Baig on pages, 254, 255, 494, 495.

1947
Muhammadi Begum, her husband, family and extended family move to Lahore by force.

1948
Mirza Sultan Muhammad dies.

1966
Muhammadi Begum died on 19 November, 1966, at Lahore, her funeral prayer was led by Molana Shahabuddin of Chowburji who was a disciple of Shaikhul Hind Molana Mahmoodul Hasan. She was buried in Qabrustan Miyani Sahib Lahore.

The old tomb of Jesus website, Maulvi Abdullah, Khalifa Noorudin and MGA

Intro
Dear readers, about 10-15 years ago, some Ahmadi made a website called “tombofjesus”.  When the tomb of Yuz Asaf was discovered by some Ahmadi’s (1895 or 1896), it was argued by Maulvi Shaikh Abdullah (the lawyer) who was an inhabitant of Kashmir, that since this tomb was that of a prophet, that eliminated all muslims from the equation, thus it must belong to a Jewish prophet.  Muslims strictly believe that the HP was the final prophet, there were no more prophets to come. Muslims only had one prophet, on the other hand the jewish people had many prophets, in other words because of the concept of khatme-nubuwwat, this had to be a jewish prophet. When HMGA recieved this data he also used the ending of prophethood as his main argument in terms of proving that Yus Asaf was not a muslim.

In a letter written to HMGA(1895 or 1896), maulvi Abdullah writes:

“The word nabi is common between the followers of Islam and the Israelites, and as in Islam no prophet came after our Holy Prophet Muhammad, nor could one come, therefore the general Muslims of Kashmir are agreed that this prophet is from before Islam.”

“But because of the ending of prophethood, this excludes the Muslim people. Therefore it is clearly proved that this prophet is an Israelite prophet.”

Then HMGA wrote a footnote to this published letter, in it he comments:

“””””But after the ending of prophethood, no further prophet can come in Islam. Therefore it is settled that he was an Israelite prophet.””””

This argument was contradicted in November of 1901 as MGA claimed prophethood
As we all know, before 1901, MGA and his team denied that MGA was a prophet, however, after November, MGA was a full fledged prophet and thus the entire line of argumentation that was created to prove that Yuz Asaf=Jesus was totally contradicted.

The owners of the “tomb of Jesus” website also felt the same contradiction, they felt the need to add this important note:

Tomb of Jesus Website Comments:

“””””The reader will note that in footnote 2 above, Ghulam Ahmad states that no prophet can come after Muhammad. Therefore, the inhabitant of the Roza Bal must have been a Jewish prophet. Later, though, as his followers believe, and as Ghulam Ahmad explained, God had repeatedly told Ghulam Ahmad that He (God) had appointed Ghulam Ahmad as a follower-prophet of Muhammad.  Ahmadiyya literature reflects that Ghulam Ahmad himself seemed quite stunned by these revelations from God, because, just as other Muslims, he had understood Islam to teach that there could be no prophet of any type coming after Muhammad].””””

Further research showed that ahmadis did not abandon this debate-tactic.  In two books published in the 1930’s and 40’s the same technique was used:

The Tomb of Jesus by Sufi Mutuir Rahman Bengalee, M. A.

See pg. 41

and Where Did Jesus Die? by J. D. Shams

See chapter 13

They wrote the same argument.  That’s unbelievable.  I think these two men felt that this argument alone convinced HMGA that this tomb was in fact that of Jesus.

Who is Khalifa Nooruddin?
This is another person that helped MGA land on the idea that Yuz Asaf= Jesus (see Page 48).
Dard tells us about Khalifa Noorudin as follows, see page 684:

“”””On October 4th, 1899, Ahmadas appealed for funds; and, apart from the permanent needs of the Langar at Qadian and the production of literature, he proposed to send a deputation of three men to Afghanistan, Nisibain, Kerbala, and the Laghman mountains to make further research with regard to the travels of Jesusas. Khalifa Nur-ud-Dinra (Born 1847, died, 2.9.1942) had in this connection made the necessary enquiries in Kashmir.”””

He gave money for the building of the white minaret
Per Dard (page 855), Khalifa Nur-ud-Din, Merchant, Jammu.

Ahmad later declared him to be the “Pilate of our time”, superior to the original. In his later life he was a noted advocate of the Oxfordian theory of Shakespeare authorship and was president of the Shakespeare Fellowship for many years.  In 1939, he met with the Ahmadi mullah JD Shams and even presided on a Jalsa in the UK, hence he proved that he colluded with MGA to exonerate him.  In 1897, he was a captain in the British Military as well as a judge, in fact, all British officers doubled as corrupt Judges.

He was born to Edward Douglas, (1831–1867) and Annie Arbuthnot, (b. 1831). In February 1884 he joined the 1st Battalion, North Staffordshire Regiment, switching to the Indian army in 1887. He was promoted to captain in 1895.

In 1891, Douglas married Helen Mary Isabelle Downer (b. 1863). They had three children, Edward Montagu Douglas (b. 1891), Major Archibald Stair Montagu Douglas, MM, (1897–1974),[1] and Helen Elizabeth Douglas (b. 1893).[2][3]

1897

In 1897, having been appointed assistant district commissioner in the Punjab, Douglas was required to investigate the allegations of Henry Martyn Clark against Mirza Ghulam Ahmad. Clark, a Christian missionary, had been approached by a youth named Abdul Hamid, who claimed that Ahmad had sent him to kill Clark. Douglas found Hamid’s claims to be implausible, and that there was evidence that Hamid had been coached. He had also repeatedly changed and even retracted his story. Douglas dismissed the charges. Even after more than forty years he vividly remembered the case and its details. He wrote to J. D. Shams, an Ahmadiyya missionary in London on 29 July 1939, “… the evidence was false and thus I acquitted Mirza Ghulam Ahmad”.[4] The aftermath was presented by Ahmad’s supporters as a triumph, and as evidence of Ahmad’s divine mission.[5] Subsequently, Ahmad compared Douglas favourably with Pontius Pilate, declaring him to be a man of much superior character, stating,

“”””In my opinion, Captain Douglas outshines Pilate in imparting judgment fearlessly and in showing determination and steadfastness … Pilate showed cowardice due to fear of the High Priest and the Elders, and acted in a cowardly manner. But Captain Douglas showed no sign of weakness … Those who are blessed with honour from above do not hanker after worldly honours. This commendable courtesy by the ‘Pilate’ of our time shall be remembered by all my followers when I am gone. He shall be remembered till the end of the world with love and respect.””””[6][7]

In his book Kitab ul Baryyah (An Account of Exoneration) Mirza Ghulam Ahmad has narrated the details of the case.[8]

 

Later career and retirement

Douglas was appointed Deputy Commissioner in 1899, and was promoted to Major on 6 February 1902.[9] He was on the executive committee for the Coronation Durbar at Delhi in 1903. From 1910-1913 he was Deputy Commissioner of the Lylpur District. He then served as Chief Commissioner of the Andaman and Nicobar Islands from 1913–1920.[10][11]

Douglas was honoured as Companion of the Order of the Indian Empire (CIE) in 1903 and as Companion of the Order of the Star of India (CSI) in 1919.

In his retirement he was an advocate of Oxfordian theory of Shakespeare authorship and wrote The Earl of Oxford as “Shakespeare”; an outline of the case (1931).[12] In 1928 he became president of The Shakespeare Fellowship, after the death of its founder George Greenwood. He held the post until 1945. Douglas advocated a “group theory” of Shakespeare authorship with Oxford as the “master mind”.[13] In Lord Oxford and the Shakespeare Group (1952) he expanded his theory, asserting that Oxford’s fellow-contributors were Francis Bacon, Christopher Marlowe, the Earl of Derby, John Lyly and Robert Greene.[14] According to James S. Shapiro Douglas also believed that “Queen Elizabeth had entrusted Oxford to oversee a propaganda department that would produce patriotic plays and pamphlets”.[15]

In his later life he also painted and was among amateurs exhibited at the Royal Academy.

Pictures with JD Shams from 1939

Why do Ahmadi’s think that eating swine causes homosexuality?

Intro
Ahmadi’s have been going around for the past 100 years and claiming that the eating of swine makes a person Gay, or LGBTQ.  Where did this come from?  Where did Ahmadi’s get this from?  MGA and his team of writers composed “The Philosophy of the Teachings of Islam” in 1896, in this very book these people ascribed foul and shameless human habits as a direct result of eating swine (pork)(see page 39-40).  However, this theory is totally wrong, homosexuality is prevalent in Afghanistan and Pakistan, wherein there is a Muslim majority of 98%, and swine (pork) is totally banned, thus, this Ahmadiyya-unique-idea is ridiculous.  In fact, many Ahmadi’s in Pakistan are Gay, and they have never ate pork.  Furthermore, the 2nd Khalifa was accused of Gay-behaviors back in 1903 and the 1930’s.

But in Islam, why is the flesh of swine prohibited
It was Chapter 2: 173.  Allah stopped Muslims from eating the flesh of swine.  Chapter 2 was revealed at Medina, as the Prophet arrived, the flesh of swine was most likely already banned in Medina, hence, this revelation only conformed to a societal norm.  The flesh of swine was always avoided since it took longer to cook and contained lots of diseases and etc.  In fact, the jewish people have also avoided swine since the Torah was revealed.

The quote
“”””It is not necessary to enter into a detailed exposition of the foulness of this animal. Everyone
knows that it eats filth and is utterly shameless. Thus the reason for the prohibition of its flesh is obvious, as by the law of nature its flesh would have a foul effect on the body and the soul of one who eats it. As we have already demonstrated food affects a person’s soul and there can be no doubt that the flesh of such a foul animal would also be foul. Even in pre-Islamic times,
Greek physicians had opined that the flesh of this animal particularly damages the faculty of modesty and fosters shamelessness. The eating of carrion is also prohibited in Islamic law for the same reason; that is to say, it affects the moral qualities adversely and is also harmful to physical health. The blood of an animal that is strangled or is beaten to death remains inside the body of the dead animal and they are all carrion. Can the blood of a dead animal stay in the same condition by remaining inside? No, it is obvious that the blood of such an animal is soon corrupted and corrupts the whole flesh. It is established by recent research that the germs in such blood spread a poisonous corruption in the flesh of the dead animal.”””” (see pages 38-44).

What is the Talim-ul-Islam-High School (college) at Qadian and later at Rabwah?

Intro
MGA issued an announcement on September 15, 1897, announcing plans for the establishment of such a school in Qadian (see Mujadid e Azim, page 728, online abridged version.  This was the Middle/High-School that was started by MGA, it started as a middle school but then added a high school in 1900,  most of the teachers were corrupt and passed MGA’s sons even when they failed, it ran from roughly 1898 to 1903.  There were accusations of rampant homosexuality at this school also, which seems to be the reason it was shut down in 1903.  There was also a College launched (launched in 1903) with the same name that was shut down by the British Government in 1905, via the University Act of 1907.  Remember, in 1909, the British government built the biggest building in the history of Qadian as they donated 25,000 rupees to the Ahmadiyya Movement at Qadian.  This allowed the Ahmadiyya movement to purchase 50 acres of land as Noorudin ordered the building of the College, with hostel space,  the first Jamia and the famous Nur Hospital and the famous Nur Mosque.  If it wasn’t for the British government this huge facility would have never been built.  However, the College wasn’t opened until 1944, during WW-2.  In November 1938, Mirza Nasir Ahmad returned to the town of his birth, Qadian, where he was appointed a professor at Jamia Ahmadiyya, the missionary theological training college of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community. In 1939, he was appointed principal where he remained for five years. From May 1944 to November 1965, he was principal of the Talim-ul-Islam College, first in Qadian, then after partition, in RabwahPakistan.  In 1947, when the college became homeless as a result of the independence of Pakistan in 1947. After operating in an abandoned horse stable for several months, the college shifted to the abandoned building of the D.A.V. College in Lahore. This building was used as a refugee camp for some time, and became badly damaged but was repaired to suit the needs of the college. In 1955, the college moved to its current campus at Rabwah.  From 1948 to 1955, the College was located in Lahore, in fact, an Ahmadi was tragically murdered in 1953 during the the famous 1953 riots.  On Dec. 6th, 1954, the College was opened in Rabwah.  In 1965, Mirza Nasir Ahmad became Khalifa and appointed Qazi M. Aslam as the new principal.  Qazi M. Aslam remained as principal until 1973, when Pakistan nationalized all Colleges and Universities.  Hence, the college closed forever.  The buildings were then used by Ahmadiyya leaders as jamia or other administrative offices.

Some hard data from Dard, page 812-813
“””The middle school (Ta‘limul Islam) at Qadian was raised to the high standard in February 1900, and a boarding house was opened in May 1900. The number of students on the rolls by the end of 1900 was 124. 

The president of the executive committee of the school was Maulawi Nur-ud-Dinra and the General Secretary was M. Muhammad Ali. The Head Master was M. Sher Alira and the second master was Mufti Muhammad Sadiqra.

The classes had not all got rooms and the boys sat in the open space near one another.

The school remained closed for three days on the death of Queen Victoria as a sign of mourning and Ahmadas sent two telegrams (January 24th, 1901) of condolence to the Lieut. Governor of the Punjab and the Viceroy. But on February 23rd, 1901, it was closed for a day on the completion of the I‘jazul Masih as a sign of thanksgiving and rejoicing.

It sent up three students to the Middle Examination in 1900 and all passed, while the Arya
school patronised by Buddha Mal sent up 10 and only one was successful. In 1901 there were nine candidates and of them seven passed. A special sermon was preached in the school for the benefit of students every Monday.””””

What is “Hyat-e-Qudsi” by Maulana Ghulam Rasool Qudsi Rajecki?

Intro
There was yet another famous follower of MGA named Maulana Ghulam Rasool Qudsi Rajecki.  Also spelled as Rajeki or Rajki.  He wrote a book entitled, “Hyat-e-Qudsi”.  In this book he mentions how he would see dreams wherein it seemed that Maulvi Noorudin face looked like that of the Prophet Muhammad (saw).  This comes from an era wherein Ahmadi’s thought that MGA was really the second coming of Muhammad (Saw) and MGA’s wife was really the wife of Muhammad (Saw) (naozobillah).
