LIFE OF MIRZA QADIANI
"My birth took place
in 1839 or 1840 A.D. I was one of the twins. The other one with me was
a girl whose name was jannat (paradise). In my revelation 'Ya Adam uskun
antaa wa zaujoka al-jannah', which was mentioned in Braheen Ahmadiyya
on p.496 some 20 years ago, the word Ďjannatí carried this special reference
that the girl who was born with me, her name was jannat and this girl died
after living for 7 months."
Roohani Khazain vol.15 p.479 by Mirza Ghulam Ahmad Qadiani)
"My father Mirza
Ghulam Murtuza, was a famous landlord. During my childhood my education
started in such a way that when I was 6-7 years old a Persian teacher was
employed who taught me Quran and few Persian books. His name was Fazl Ilahi.
When I reached 10 years of age, an Arabic teacher, Moulvi, was appointed
for my education whose name was Fazl Ahmad. When I was 17-18 years old,
I had the chance of receiving some education from my father. He taught
me Grammer, logic and hikmat (Medicine) and some of the medical books were
taught by my father. Because of my health, my father always used to discourage
me from reading too much.
"Regarding the villages
which the British Government had confiscated, my father had filed a suit
in English court to retrieve them. I was made to represent in these cases.
Although to it was against my up bringing and I did not want to waste my
time at such bad places but I was forced to look after the estate matters.
In those days, I was employed for a few years by British Government in
Sialkot court as a clerk for Rs15/- per month.

"Later I resigned
and once again got busy in estate management. Very often I was thinking
about the meaning of Quran (Tafseer). When I reached 30-35 years of age
my father died. I was in Lahore at that time. After the death of my father,
series of conversation with God (Mukalimat-e-Ilahiah) started in full swing."

ar-Raheem. Hazrat Waalida Sahiba (Respected Mother i.e. wife of Mirza Ghulam)
told me that once during his youth days, when Hazrat Maseeh Mowood went
to recieve your grandfather's pension, Mirza Imamdeen ( a cousin of Mirza
Ghulam) went after him. When you recieved the pension, then with connivance
and deception he took him (Mirza) out instead of Qadian, took him here
and there and when he spent all the money, Imamdeen left him and went away
somewhere. Hazrat Maseeh Mowood did not come home due to shame and since
your grandfather had always wanted him to take up a job, therefore he took
up a job at the Court of Deputy Commissioner of Sialkot City at a meagre
"My father, Mirza
Ghulam Murtuza, used to sit in a chair in Governorís Darbar, and was such
a well-wisher of British Government and brave at heart, that in the Mutiny
of 1857 AD, he helped the Majestic Government, beyond his means, by purchasing
from his own pocket 50 horses and providing fifty mercenaries. The glory
of our estate was declining day by day until in our days our family position
was of a small grade landlord."

"The British confiscated
our family lands and fixed honorary pension of only Rs.700/- per year in
the form of cash which was reduced to Rs 180/- at the death of my Grandfather
and stopped compeletely after my uncleís (Fatherís elder brother) death."

(sadness) of the heart (depression)and the absence of sexual power."

Writng to Hakeem
Nooruddin, Mirza says:
" I have great
improvment with your medicines. Few diseases like lethargy and gastric
acidity have been cureed by it. I had one very serious problem that the
erection used to subside when I leid down for intercourse. Lack of sexual
energy was itís cause. So with your medicines my sexual power have returned."

IN ANCIENT MEDICAL LITERATURE
Depression has probably
been part of the human condition as long as man has inhabited the earth.
Even a brief perusal of early manuscript or writing reveals descriptions
of depression. Ancient writers recognized some of the same problems that
we are treating 2,000 to 4,000 years later. Most Greek literature described
the concept of divinely inspired depression. Yet 2,300 years ago, Hippocrates
recognized that psychiatric problems originate from natural causes rather
than from supernatural capriciousness. His terminology for the psychiatric
disorders remain in use today: epipepsy (the sacred disease); mania (states
of abnormal excitement); melancholia (states of abnormal depression due
to black bile); and paranioa. Hippocrates also described a woman of melancholic
turn of mind who suffered loss of sleep, aversion to food, thirst and nausea.
This ancient catalogue of melancholic symptoms presages modren description
During the Roman
Era, Physician Galen wrote about depresstion. In describing the melancholic
state Galen commented that certain patients show fear, depression, discontent
with life, and hatred for all people. He postulated that psychic functions
were found in the brain, which was directly affected in melancholia. In
his encyclopedic descriptions, Galen including dyshmia (ill temper) crasis
(temperament), and chymos(humor).
Robert Burtonís "Anatomy
of Melancholia", published in 1630, summarized what was known at that time
as depression and categorized melancholy as "a disease of the head or mind"
frequently associated with pain and sorrow. Burton paved the way of future
scientific understanding of depression by cataloging the causes of depression,
including such psychological ones as shame, disgrace, anger, self love
The next significant
contribution to the description of depression was by Freud in his book,
Mourning and Melancholia, published in 1917. Frued wrote that melancholia
represented regression from object choice to a primitive mode of relating
to objects. His description of "delusional depression " emphasizes self-reproaches
replacing what should actually be outwardly directed anger. He believed
that sufferers of depression torment themselves mercilessly while relating
the torment to another person, such as the sexual object they may have
lost. One can imagine now, what happened with our Mirza. If only Frued
had the opportunity to study Mirza!
Depression has been
described for thousand of years, first by the poet and philosphers and
only later by the physicians. Today, we have entered an era in which the
description of the disease are contributed by research oriented clinics
"According to Hikmat
and Greek oriented system, this disease occurs because of collection of
black acidic material in the stomach. In whicheever organ this material
collects, black vapours arise from it and climb towards the brain. The
symptoms are: bitter eructations, anoxia because of weak stomach, disturbed
digestion, abdominal distension, loose motions, feeling of smoke like vapours
climbing inside." (Could Mirzaís revelation and inspiration be the result
of these vapours? - Author).
(Guide to the causes
& symptoms of Melancholia By
Allama Burhanuddin Nafees)
" It was thought
that this diseaseís (Melancholia) symptoms are caused by the fault in sexual
power of drive which are in liver & stomach. But recent research has
shown that it is a mental illness just like Hysteria in female. The fault
in internal organs lead to weakness of mind resulting in Melancholia in
Patient is always apathetic, worried thinking always about himself, exaggerating
everything............ with no appetite and poor digestion."
By Hakeem Dr. Ghulam Jeelani)
" Poor Digestion
bitter reuctaions, sailorhoea, abdominal distension, borbarygmi, burning
sensation in stomach,
false appetite , feeling of smoky vapours climbing towards head, symptoms
subsiding with improvement in digestion and aggravating with indigestion,
sometimes tremors of upper part of body, hands and feet and sometimes whole
body becoming cold, according to the phase of disease becoming weak, occasionally
seeing flashes of light in front of eyes, eyelids becomming heavy, feeling
heat and burnig in head and brain, headache and sudden chocking such are
the symptoms of Melancholia"

You have read the
above features of this disease. I request everybody in the right mind to
consider the claims of inspiration, revelation and conversation with God
of this Maseeh as ramblings of a deranged person and dissociate yourself
from this melancholic, so-called, prophet, so that you can become a true
Muslim and from the curse of faithlessness become a believer and a faithful
follower of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH). The Prophet (PBUH) said:
" In my Ummah there
will be about 30 false claimants and everyone of them will say that he
is Godís prophet. Now it is upto you to find out what is the number of
Now let us see what
other intellectuals and Hakeems say about Melancholia.

that disease in which abnormal ideas & thought occurs. Its cause if
the extreme blackness of mood so that mind becomes deranged and patient
is very upset by is darkness. Or else this disease is caused by too much
heat liver. This is called hypochonriasis. When the waste of food and gases
mixed in intestines, it gives rise to blackish substance and then vapours
from them ascends towards the brain, this is called gaseous melancholia"
(Canon in Medicine,
book 3, Bu Ali Sena (Avecina)
Treatment: It is
neccessary for the patient with Melancholia to be busy in work which keeps
his heart contended and surrounded by people who give him respect and deep
him happy. Small quantity of wine mixed with water should be given in moderation."
(Canon in Medicine
Note: Mirza Ghulam
Ahmad Qadiani was using Tonic wine and opium for the same reason.
" Melancholia is
the change of thoughts from normal due to fear and disease. In some patient
this disease progesses so much that the patient thinks that he can tell
the hidden things and often tells what is going to happen in future. Later
it progresses to such an extent that he consider himself an angel."
(Guide to the Aetiology
& Manifestaions of disease of Melancholia By
Allama Burhanuddin Nafees)
delusions are very frequently related to the same work he has been doing
during his health eg if the patient is a religious man, he claim prophethood
and miracles, talk about divinity and preaches people about it".

of inspiration, if this is proved that he suffers from Hysteria, Melancholia
or Epiepsy, then you donít need any other proof to reject his claim, because

QADIANI AND ALCOHOL + DRUG ADDICTION
"Opium is so frequently
used in Medicines that Hazrat Maseeh (Mirza Ghulam Ahmad Qadiani) used
to say that in the eyes of doctors opium is half the medicine. Hence the
used of opium with medicines as treatment and not as intoxicant is not
objectionable in any way. Every one of us, knowingly or unknowingly, has
used opium at some stages.
(Article by Mian
Mahmood Ahmad Khalifa Qadian in Akber Al Fazal, Qadian, Vol 17 no 6, 19
"Hazrat Maseeh Mawood
(promised Maseeh Mirza Ghulam Ahmad Qadiani ) made a medicine Tiryaq-e-Ilahi
by instructions from God and its main constituent was opium; and this medicine,
after some increase in opium content was given to Hazrat Khalifa (First
Khalifa- Hakeem Nooruddin)by Hzrat (Mirza Qadiani) for more than six months
and himself used it off and on during attacks of disease."

is being sent now. Things to be purchased, you purchase yourself and purchase
one bottle of Tonic Wine from Plommerís Shop but I need Tonic Wine keep
this in mind.
Rest is O.K.
(Signed: Mirza Ghulam
"True nature of
Tonic Wine was inquried from Plommerís shop in Lahore through Dr. Aziz
Ahmad wrote back:
39 By Hakeem Mohammad Ali, Principal Tibbiya College Amratsar)
As per instructions,
I inquired from plommerís Shop and the following reply:
"Tonic Wine is
a type of strong and intoxicating wine which is imported from
in sealed bottles. Its price is Rs.5 Annas 8 (21.9.1933) !"
See how clear it
is now that claims of Mirza Ghulam Ahmad of being the Promised Messiah,
Mahdi and Prophethood are symptoms of disease and not the result of inspirations
or conversations with God. The problem was further compounded by the use
of Opium and Tonic Wine. I pray that may God give guidance and understanding
to Qadianis so that they follow the right path, otherwise the followers
of a melancholiaic prophet will also be melancholics.
