The original Urdu text of Huzoor’s account, prior to his election of Khalifatul Masih V.

Hazrat Umar r.a. was born 13 years after ‘Aam-ul-Fil – year of the Elephant. He was 13 years younger than the Holy Prophet Muhammad s.a. and was among one of the respected tribes of Mecca.

After the Holy Prophet Muhammad s.a. married Hazrat Khadija r.a., he settled down in the same area as Hazrat Abu Bakr r.a. They lived next door to each other and thus became acquainted with one another resulting in them quickly becoming close friends.

Allah the Almighty revealed to Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad a.s. a promise, stating “I shall not leave any such thing that may lead to your embarrassment.”
