A Brief History of Ahmadiyya Movement In Islam

An Interesting Incident

Once Hadhrat Ahmad (AS) was in Dehli and sent a message to Hadhrat Maulana in Qadian to get there right away. Hadhrat Maulana was attending to patients in his medical clinic, as soon as he got the message he departed for Dehli. He did not pack any luggage, nor made any arrangements for travel expense. Someone pointed out to him that the Promised Messiah (AS) did not mean to inconvenience you that you decided to go on such a long journey without prior preparation. Hadhrat Maulana replied that since Hudhoor (AS) had ordered him to get there immediately, he regarded staying behind even one second an act of insubordination.

When he arrived at the Batala train station, a wealthy man whose wife was not well sought his professional advice. Hadhrat Maulana examined his wife and wrote out a prescription for her. In return the person purchased him the train ticket to Dehli as well as gave him a handsome amount as his fee. From this incident one can gauge his rock-solid faith in Allah and unremitting submission to Hudhoor (AS). By virtue of his numerous shining qualities Hadhrat Ahmad (AS) paid him glowing tribute in the following Persian verse:

cheh khush booday agar har zaummat noore din booday
hamein booday agar har dil pur az noore yaqeene booday

How fortunate it would be if every member of the Community would become Noor al-Din.
This could, however, only happen if every heart were filled with the light of faith.

The high status of Hadhrat Maulana can further be estimated by the fact that due to his penetrating insight he had declared that Hadhrat Mirza Bashiruddin Mahmud Ahmad (RA), was indeed the Promised Son destined to serve the cause of Islam. He reiterated this during the last days of his Caliphate. No wonder he appointed Sahibzada sahib to lead the Prayer service in the mosque, as well as deliver sermons during his sickness. Subsequently he appointed him President of the Sadr Anjuman.
