The first ever Al-Fazl edition published from Lahore in 1947, Ahmadiyya Khalifa asks for 50% of your earnings

Dear readers, as we continue to research Ahmadiyya newspapers, we have came across a rare Al-Fazl edition which was published from Lahore, Pakistan, Edition No. 1., 15th September, 1947.  In 1954, Mirza Mahmud Ahmad, the Khalifa claimed that Al-Fazl wasn’t an official “Ahmadiyya” newspaper.  Mirza Ghulam Ahmad had also denied that Al-Hakam was an “official” newspaper back in 1898.  In this same era, the Khalifa prophecied that he would eventually return to Qadian, this prophecy is still pending.

Who is Dr. Hafiz Saleh Muhammad Alladin (born 3 March 1931 in Hyderabad, India; died 20 March 2011 in Amritsar)

He was an Indian Ahmadi Muslim astronomer. Alladin received in 1963 a PhD at the University of Chicago. He was among the famous 100 Astronomers of the world and served as the educational advisor to former President APJ Abdul Kalam of India. He wrote many books, penned hundreds of articles and published more than 50 research papers. He then went as a professor at the Osmania University in Hyderabad, where he was Director of the Center of Advanced Study in Astronomy.  In 1998, he finally wrote about Ahmadiyya and picked the topic of the eclipses.  His grandfather Seth Abdullah Alladin was the first in his family to join the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community and devoted a large part of his wealth to that cause (see page 53), he seems to have converted to Ahmadiyya in the 1920’s. He was the president of Sadar Anjuman Ahmadiyya, the highest body of Ahmadiyya Muslim Jamat in India under the Khalifatul Masih V Hazrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad for 4 years.[5] He was referred as Ulul Albab by Mirza Masroor Ahmad which means one of those gifted with understanding.[6]

Khan Bahadur Seth Ahmad Aladin of Hayderabad Deccan writes:

“Respected Mirza Bashiruddin Mahmood Ahmad Sahib has been specially kind and benevolent towards me. His practical life, broadmindedness and unwavering faith in Allah has always impressed me.” (Al-Hakam, Jubilee No., 1931).

In 1990, he wrote an essay about the life of MGA in the ROR.


He seems to have written another article in the ROR of 1998, wherein he argued that the double eclipses in ramadhan in 1894 for MGA was miraculous, since it was visible in Qadian, India.

Rashid Rida vs. Mirza Ghulam Ahmad (1901-1903 era)

He was an islamic scholar from Egypt and lived from 1865 to 1935.  Rida was born near Tripoli in Al-Qalamoun, (now in Lebanon but then part of Ottoman Syria within the Ottoman Empire). His early education consisted of training in “traditional Islamic subjects”. In 1884–5 he was first exposed to al-`Urwa al-wuthqa, the journal of Jamal al-Din al-Afghani and Muhammad Abduh.  In 1897 he left Syria for Cairo to collaborate with Abduh. The following year Rida launched al-Manar, a weekly and then monthly journal comprising Quranic commentary[9] at which he worked until his death in 1935, gradually distancing himself from the teachings of Abduh and adopting a Salafism closer to Saudi Wahhabism.[10]

Rashid Rida’s controversial beliefs
One of his controversial views was his support of Darwin’s theory of evolution.[13] To justify Darwinism, Rida considered it permissible to “interpret certain stories of the Qur’an in an allegorical manner, as, for example, the story of Adam.”.[14] He also believed that the origin of the human race from Adam is a history derived from the Hebrews and that Muslims are not obliged to believe in this account.[15]

Other controversial beliefs held by Rida included:
– His view that usury (riba) may be permitted in certain cases [16]
– His idea that building statues is permissible in Islam as long as there is no danger of their being devoted to improper religious uses.[17]
– His support of the British against the Ottomans [18]
– His view that “the minute living bodies which today have been made known by the microscope and are called microbes, may possibly be a species of Jinn[19]

His beef with MGA started in 1901
In MGA’s arabic only book, “I’jaz ul Masih”, he wrote about Rashid Rida as follows:

After Sheikh Mohammed Rashid Rida expressed his opinion on MGA’s book “إعجاز المسيح”, where he said that the non-arabic words and rhetoric are clear in it, MGA attacked Egypt, the Egyptians, their Arabism and their dialect.

بعد أن أبدى الشيخ محمد رشيد رضا رأيه بكتاب الميرزا “إعجاز المسيح”، حيث ذكر أنّ العُجمة فيه واضحة،

هاجم الميرزا مصرَ والمصريين وعروبتهم ولهجتهم وقال:

MGA said:

“The Messenger of Allah and the Lord of الورى did not call your land [meaning Egypt] the land of the Arabs, so do not slander to Allah and His Messenger, the slanderous has been disappointed”.

MGA also said this about Rashid Rida
MGA depicted Riḍā as a “jealous” and “arrogant” scholar who, like many others, not only rejected the message, but fueled the dislike of Indian Muslims against him and his followers (See Salafiyya, Ahmadiyya and European converts during the inter war period (2016) )

1912, Rashid Rida comes to British-India
In 1912, Rashid Rida seems to have traveled to Lucknow, British-India and held a debate with the local Ahmadi’s there (see Salafiyya, Ahmadiyya and European converts during the inter war period (2016)).  

1923, Rashid Rida and the Lahori-Ahmadi’s
See “””Salafiyya, Ahmadiyya, and European Converts to Islam in the Interwar Period””
Author(s): Umar Ryad

Salafiyya, Ahmadiyya and European converts during the inter war period (2016)

“”””After MGA died and by 1923, in general, Riḍā agreed with Khwaja Kamal-ud-Dinʼs “friends” and followers in Egypt and considered him a “moderate” follower of the Ahmadiyya. In 1923, Lord Headley, Kamal-ud-Din, and Abdul Mohye, the Arab mufti of the Woking Mosque (the Arab press gave him the title of the Mufti of the English Lands), passed through Egypt on their way to hajj. The trip was covered in a favorable light in the Islamic press in Egypt, including al-Manār. In Egyptian newspapers, Kamal-ud-Din found a suitable opportunity to defend the Lahore branch
of the Ahmadiyya and their faith as being a trend close to “mainstream” Islam.  Riḍā was not able to meet them in order to discuss his doubts regarding the Ahmadiyya with Kamal-ud-Din in person. At this point, Riḍā found that Kamal-ud-Din’s consideration of Ghulam Ahmad as merely a “reformer” was a good step by the Lahore branch towards the “true” Islam (Al-Manār 24, no. 8 (Aug. 1923), 583).  

Meanwhile, despite Riḍā’s appreciation of the Lahore Ahmadiyya missionary work in Europe, he was critical of their translation of the Qurʾān into English. The Lahore Ahmadiyya tried to circulate Mawlana Muḥammad ʿAlīʼs English translation of the Qurʾān in Egypt and Syria, but their attempt was resisted by the religious institution of al-Azhar, Riḍā himself, and his friend
Shaykh Muṣṭafā Najā (1852–1932), the mufti of Beirut. In his fatwā, Riḍā saw it as a “deviant” translation that contradicts the principles of Islam. He stated that the translation attempts to destroy Islam from within by disseminating the Ahmadiyya’s “false” doctrines on revelation and by abrogating Qurʾānic rulings, such as jihad (al-Manār 25, no. 10 (March 1925), 794–796).  In his view, Riḍā emphasized that Muḥammad ʿAlī intentionally distorted some verses related to the Messiah (al-masīḥ) in order to argue, based on these verses, that Ghulam Ahmad is the promised Messiah.  Riḍā urged Muslims not to rely on this translation, or on any other, to understand the Qurʾān, but rather to act according to its rulings in a direct manner.  However, Riḍā did believe that this translation and other Qurʾān translations could be used to invite non-Muslims to Islam, particularly those without knowledge of Arabic (al-Manār 29, no. 4 (July 1928), 268–271. See Mohamed Ali Mohamed Abou Sheishaa, “A
Study of the Fatwā by Rashid Riḍā on the Translation of the Qur’an,” Journal of the Society
for Qurʾānic Studies 1, no. 1 (Oct. 2001), available online: (
Cf. Moch Nur Ichwan, “Differing Responses to an Ahmadi Translation and Exegesis: The
Holy Qurʾān in Egypt and Indonesia,” Archipel 62 (2001): 143–161).

Riḍā’s tone was inconsistent. With regard to the differences between the Lahore and Qadiyani branches in matters of creed (ʿaqīda) and their religious work in Europe, Riḍā argued that the Lahore movement agrees with other Muslims in general, except in specific issues related to the death of Jesus and the abrogation of certain verses of the Qurʾān. Despite their “great” sacrifices for Islam in India and Europe, Riḍā finally concluded that the Ahmadis of both
branches were followers of falsehood (bāṭil) (al-Manār 28, no. 7 (Sept. 1927), 543–550).

Nevertheless, it is strange that Riḍā utterly dismissed Kamal-ud-Din from the Ahmadiyya movement. After Khawaja Kamal-ud-Din’s death, Riḍā eulogized him for his service for Islam in Europe. A brief biography of Kamal-ud-Din was soon published in al-Manār by Khwaja Abdul Ghani, secretary of the managing committee of the Woking Muslim Mission and Literary Trust in Lahore, as a token of appreciation. Riḍā considered Kamal-ud-Din “the greatest missionary to Islam” in their age. Through his mission, he provided a great service to Islam by converting many high-class British, the most refined of them being Lord Headley. Although Kamal-ud-Din was known as a “moderate” follower of the Ahmadiyya, Riḍā was told by many friends who were familiar with his work in Europe, that his activities and writings did not actually reflect any inclinations to the Ahmadiyya convictions as such (al-Manār 33, no. 2 (April 1933), 138).”””””

Shams-i-Bazigha by Mirza Ghulam Ahmad and Muhammad Ahsan Amrohi

The name means ‘Rising Sun’. It is a book by Muhammad Ahsan Amrohi, one of the assistants of Mirza Ghulam Ahmad. It was directed at Mehr Ali Shah, and according to the latter, was full of errors.  This book seems to be totally missing from all the records.

“Shams ul Hidaya” (1899) by Pir Mehr Ali Shah

MGA’s confrontation with Pir Mehr Ali Shah started in roughly 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).  But this book, “Shams ul Hidaya” wasn’t totally written by Pir Mehr Ali Shah, in fact, one of the disciples of the Pir wrote much of, and this was admitted to by the Pir himself.  Maulavi Muhammad Ghazi had actually written the book, as Noorudin asked for references, the Pir told Noorudin that he should ask Maulavi Muhammad Ghazi.

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.

December 7, 1900
MGA invited Pir Mehar ‘Ali Shah to write a quality and in ornate Arabic language, a
commentary on surah al-Fatihah within 70 days. He further elaborated both have 70 days beginning from December 15, 1900. Therefore, MGA wrote an exhaustive commentary in
high flown Arabic on surah al-Fatihah which appeared under the title of I‘jazul-Masih on February 23, 1901.

February 23, 1901
“I’jazul-Masih is published.

March 1901
Pir Mehr Ali Shah responds with Saif-e-Chishtiya’i, in this book, he makes fun of some of the Arabic phrases used in I‘jazul-Masih and alleged that some of the material is plagiarized and
further alleged that the Revelations of the Promised Messiah are no more than confused dreams.  The Pir also made an allegation that the Promised Messiahas had been plagiarizing
from Maqamat-e-Hariri.

Ahmadiyya trafficking scheme through Sri Lanka


The Daily Ummat Karachi Pakistan dated 27th May, 2019, reports that the Tragic bomb blasts in Sri Lanka exposes the Ahmadiyya secret network of human trafficking in the city of Nigumbo. As per the directions of the Mirza family the Ahmadii converts from Pakistan, Iran and Afghanistan are placed in Jamaat’s base camp in Nigambo, Sri Lanka.

Before their onward shifting to Europe these newly misguided peoples are given basic Ahmadiyya cult training and brain washing.  Afterward, these peoples are given the status of Refugees with the assistance of UN organisation for Refugees (UNHCR), then they are sent to Germany, France, Spain and Canada.

Daily Ummat refers to a report published in Washington Post saying that Peoples from Iran, Afghanistan, and Pakistan accept Ahmadiyya and come to Sri Lanka in the hope that they will be sent to Germany, France and Canada with the help of UNHCR.

Babar Baloch a spokesman of UNHCR told Associated Press Journalist John Gambril that after bomb blasts, local Buddhists and Christians have attacked them and few Ahmadi’s have been beaten by them on the suspicion of being muslims.

The UNHCR Spokesman said that they have received many application from ahmadiya community members in Sri Lanka for rescue and they are actively pursuing them. He said that as per Record available with them the number of registered applicant is 1600.

One such Qadiani Tariq Ahmad from Pakistan told that they had come to SriLanka in the hope of migration to Europe or Canada but local Buddhists and Christians are attacking them thinking us to be muslims.  Raja Kamran a Qadiani who arrived in Sri Lanka with family told that they had come here to migrate to get immigration in Europe or Canada but soon after our arrival bomb blasts took place and local christians started attacking us. Now with the assistance of their Jamaat elders in Rabwah and London they have now been provided police protection and hopefully they would be shifted to a safe place soon.

The history of Ahmadiyya in Sri Lanka aka Ceylon

Modern day Sri Lanka aka Ceylon was under the British government for a long time, roughly from 1800 to 1948.  Per Ahmadiyya records, the first Ahmadiyya missionary was sent to Sri Lanka and then later Mauritius in 1915 (see “Ahmadiyya Muslim Mosques Around The World”), his name was Sufi Ghulam Muhammad, who seems to be not mentioned much in the history of Ahmadiyya.  He wasn’t an Ahmadi in 1896 when the famous list of the 313 companions was created.  Sufi Ghulam Muhammad did his BA from Punjab University and asked Khalifatul Masih I if he should memorise the Qur’an or go on to take his MA. He was advised to memorise the Qur’an first. Sufi sahib did this in six months and when he informed Khalifatul Masih I he offered a Sajda [posture of prostration] of gratefulness.

per Ahmadiyya records, after reading Ahmadiyya newspapers, a person named Abdul Aziz requested to join the Ahmadiyya via a letter.  This could be a total fake however.

Sufi Ghulam Muhammad is sent as a missionary to Mauritius, however, he stops in Sri Lanka and works on creating an Ahmadiyya center there.

A permanent Ahmadiyya missionary is sent to Sri Lanka, his name is Maulana A.P. Ibrahim.

An Ahmadiyya mosque is built.

Is Shahid Buttar really an Ahmadi?

We all know that the first Ahmadi to ever run for the U.S. Senate is Qasim Rashid.  However, there seems to be another, his name is Shahid Buttar.  We have never seen him at any “Qadiani”-Ahmadi event, however, he could have been born as a “Lahori-Ahmadi” or maybe he is just a rogue Ahmadi who doesn’t follow the Mirza family.  At this point, we don’t know, hopefully, he reaches out to us and lets us know.  Buttar’s parents emigrated from Pakistan to Great Britain before he was born to escape religious persecution (the family belongs to a sect of Islam called Ahmadiyya that Buttar says is the Muslim equivalent of Unitarianism).  We think that Shahid Buttar is a cool guy, he raps, dances and his great speaking ability.

Hani Tahir on “Ijazul Masih” – “The miracles of the Messiah”

This is an Arabic-only book by MGA and his team of writers which was prompted via MGA’s challenge to Pir Mehar ‘Ali Shah.  In his challenge issued on July 20, 1900, MGA wanted to put at rest various insinuations against him about his lack of knowledge of the Arabic language.  The Muslims of the Punjab knew about MGA, they knew that MGA was using ghost writers and he could barely even speak in Arabic.  MGA’s team invited all so-called scholars and ulema’ specially Pir Mehar ‘Ali Shah to demonstrate their eloquence and fluency of Arabic by participating in a seven-hour live contest of writing a commentary in high flown Arabic on 40 verses on a surah selected through drawing a lot at a public meeting in Lahore where all should gather including MGA (see Hidden Treasures).  We have posted a few officially translated portions of this book here.  MGA never went to the public meeting and was thus humiliated, instead his team wrote this book on that occasion.

Hani Tahir’s commentary on this book
This is the second edition of the book, whose first edition was published eight months ago.

The book consists of four chapters:

The first chapter shows that there was no challenge from the Mirza’s side; it was just an escape from facing the payment of the dowry.

The second chapter speaks about the content of the Mirza’s book “Ijazil Masih”, and shows that the content is hollow and petty, and that no sane person can say what was mentioned in this book; for example: that the age of the world is seven thousand years, and that the Quranic chapter ‘Al-Fatihah’ includes mention about the Mirza’s advent.

The third chapter talks about the language of the Mirza in this book, where there are dozens of grammatical errors, and there are weak expressions and poor language, and there are 71 expressions that are stolen from Al Hariri and Al Hamdhani.

The fourth chapter shows the lies of the Mirza after the publication of this book, and it shows how he escaped from confronting Sanuallah when he came to Qadian to meet him after the publication of the book.
