اس سفر ميں كچه نقصان هوگا اور كچه هم وغم پيش آئے گا
(Some loss will be incurred in the course of this journey and some worry and suffering will be encountered.)
“I informed my companions of this. Before we set out from Patiala for the return journey, it was time for Asr Prayer and in order to perform my ablution, I took off my cloak and handed it to a servant of Syed Muhammad Hasan Khan, a minister of the State of Patiala. Thereafter, when the time came to purchase our tickets, I put my hand in my pocket and discovered that the handkerchief in which the money had been folded had fallen out of my pocket. Then I remembered the revelation that a loss had to be suffered. After we boarded the train and arrived at the [railway] station of Doraha, a European traveler deliberately misinformed one of my companions that the train had arrived at Ludhiana and we all got out of the train. After the train left, we discovered that it was a different station. Having alighted at a deserted place, we faced much trouble. In this way the second part of the revelation was also fulfilled.”

كذب عليكم الخبيث۔كذب عليكم الخنزير۔عنايت الله حافظك۔اني معك اسمع و اري۔ اليس الله بكاف عبده۔ فبراه الله مما قالوا وكان عندالله وجيها۔
These revelations indicate that some evil-minded person will charge me falsely, or might have charged me falsely, but that Allah’s favour will safeguarding me.”“
Note by Hazrat Maulana Jalal-ud-Din Shamsra: “The reference is to the lawsuit that Martyn Clark brought against the Promised Messiahas in August 1897. The Promised Messiahas writes: ‘Through this prosecution, at the instance of Henry Martyn Clark, in which I was charged with conspiracy to murder, was fulfilled the prophecy which was mentioned in Barahin-e- Ahmadiyyah twenty years before the prosecution was launched. That revelation was:
فبراه الله مما قالواوكان عندالله وجيها۔
[Allah will clear him of that which they alleged because he has a high standing with Allah.] This is a tremendous sign that despite the fact that all these people – Maulavi Muhammad Hussain on behalf of the Muslims, Lalah Ram Bhaj Dutt on behalf of the Hindus and Dr Henry Martyn Clark on behalf of the Christians – had combined against me to humiliate me and, together with their supporters, mounted an assault against me, as it happened at the time of Jang-e-Ahzab [the Battle of the Ditch], Allah humiliated all of them and established my innocence … so that the revelation might be fulfilled:

Her body temperature dropped, and she suffered from extreme weakness. It seemed as if she would faint. I imagined at that time that perhaps she was about to leave the world. The children were all deeply overcome, and the women and her mother were almost out of their senses for the crisis had arisen suddenly. Believing that she was at her last breath and yet being certain of God’s power to perform wonders, I supplicated for her health and her condition changed immediately and I received the revelation: ‘Tahweel-ul-Maut’, indicating that God had postponed death and moved it for another time. Her body temperature rose again and then she regained her full senses and the boy was born who has been named Mubarak Ahmad.”
