Hazrat Amma Jan, may Allah be pleased with her, was the second wife of the Promised Messiah(as) and dearly loved mother of Hazrat Khalifat al-Masih the Second. Her marriage to Hazrat Ahmad(as) took place according to a special glad tiding. God Almighty blessed her with offspring who were destined to propagate the message of Islam among all the nations of the world and bring extraordinary prosperity to the Movement.
She was born at Dehli in 1865 into the noble family of Sadat. Hazrat Mir Nasir Nawab(ra) was her father and Hazrat Sayyed Begum sahiba was her mother. Her marriage to Promised Messiah(as) took place in 1884.
Hazrat Amma Jan(ra) was a profoundly virtuous and revered lady. She believed in Islam and Ahmadiyyat with all her heart & soul. The most shining aspects of her character were Divine worship, generosity, and hospitality, helping the needy, cleanliness, perseverance, and complete faith in God under all circumstances. She brought up all of her children the best way. She received every member of the Community with such love and sympathy that every one thought they were related to her.
Hazrat Mirza Bashir Ahmad(ra) recorded her voice in a US made recording machine on February 7th, 1952. The room she died in is still standing in Rabwah. May Allah give her a lofty station in paradise. May Allah enable us to follow in her footsteps. Ameen.
