1 January 1903: On this day, the Promised Messiahas published an ishtihar, in which he wrote that on the morning of the Eid day, Allah the Almighty granted him glad tidings and revelations.

The Promised Messiahas never gave any hasty advice; rather, he would always guide others to seek God’s help through istikharah. This clearly demonstrated Hazrat Ahmad’sas firm faith in Allah as he would leave all matters in God’s hands. (Maktubat-e-Ahmad, Vol.2, p. 608)

6 January 1897: On this day, the Promised Messiahas replied to a letter he received from Maulvi Ghulam Dastageer Sahib in which he expressed his pleasure that he [Maulvi Sahib] had accepted to come for a mubahala [prayer duel]. Huzooras added that there were some matters in the letter he received, which still needed to be decided. The Promised Messiahas stated that as he [Maulvi Sahib] had not specified any date for his arrival in Lahore, he would send Hakim Fazal Din Sahib to him. Huzooras hoped that after deciding all the matters, he [Maulvi Sahib] would make his way to Lahore with Hakim Sahib for the mubahala. (Maktubat-e-Ahmad, Vol.1, p. 461)

7 January 1884: The Promised Messiahas wrote a letter to Mir Abbas Ali Sahib of Ludhiana in which he expressed his gratitude for sending 50 rupees. The Promised Messiahas said that the 50 rupees arrived exactly at a time of need. Hazrat Ahmadas added that some people had made an untimely demand and he was in great need of 50 rupees. Huzooras further added that upon supplication, he received the revelation:

بحسن قبولی دعاء بنگر کہ چہ زود دعا قبول میکنم

(Observe My good acceptance of thy supplication and see how quickly I respond to it.)

Hazrat Ahmadas stated that the revelation was revealed on 3 January 1884 and he received the above-mentioned money on 6 January 1884. (Maktubat-e-Ahmad, Vol.1, p. 586)

7 January 1899: On this date, the Promised Messiahas published a lengthy ishtihar. Huzooras stated that he had come to learn of some secret writings which Maulvi Muhammad Hussain Batalvi was writing to the government, in which he had said that all the ahadith in regard to the advent of the blood-thirsty Mahdi were invalid in his view.

Huzooras stated that on one hand, Maulvi Muhammad Hussain Batalvi was siding with the ulema that he held the same belief with regard to the Mahdi as they had and further called for fatwas against a person who denied such beliefs. Then, on the other hand, he was secretly writing to the government in which he rejected those very beliefs.

Hazrat Ahmadas further added that those maulvis who issued a fatwa that a person who rejected the advent of the [blood-thirsty] Mahdi was an infidel and Dajjal, should hold a jalsa and enquire from Muhammad Hussain Sahib about his beliefs in this regard. (Majmua-e-Ishtiharat, Vol. 2, p. 506-511)

7 January 1905: The Promised Messiahas wrote a letter to Hazrat Nawab Muhammad Ali Khanra in which he stated that his health was better than before. Huzooras stated that at times, his heart felt weak to such an extent that his hands and feet became numb as though no blood was coursing through them.

Huzooras added that this was necessary to occur in accordance with the prophecy of the Messiah that he would be wrapped in two yellow sheets. Huzooras further expressed that opponents were making continuous efforts against the Jamaat and prayed that Allah granted the people of the Jamaat such level of faith which was granted to the Companionsra of the Holy Prophetsa.

Huzooras said that he had firm faith that God would surely strengthen the faith of his followers, whose hearts were clean and souls were pure. Huzooras further stated that he had always found Hazrat Nawab Muhammad Ali Khanra to possess true heartfelt sympathy for others and sincerity. (Maktubat-e-Ahmad, Vol. 2, p. 283)
