by Sayed Hameedullah Nusrat Pasha
This book is about the life of Hazrat Mir Muhammad Ismail(ra) (1881-1947), a companion of the Promised Messiah(as). Hazrat Mir Muhammad Ismail(ra) was one of the many Ashab of the Mahdi, and thus, a member of the blessed party of the Akharin.
His real name was Sayyed Muhammad Ismail. In Delhi, the Sayyeds, or members of the physical progeny of the Holy Prophet(sa) were, out of sheer reverence, called Mir or Khwaja, both of which are customary titles of honour.
Other than being a disciple and companion of the Promised Messiah(as), Hazrat Mir Muhammad Ismail(ra) also had the rare privilege of being his brother-in-law. He was the brother of Hazrat Anmmān Jān, Sayyeda Nusrat Jahan Begum(ra)—the esteemed wife of the Promised Messiah and Mahdi, Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad(as) of Qadian.
