The Promised Messiahas states:
“God Almighty desires to draw all those who live in various habitations of the world, be it Europe or Asia, and who have virtuous nature, to the Unity of God and unite His servants under one Faith. This indeed is the purpose of God for which I have been sent to the world.” (The Will, pp. 8-9)
It is stated in Tarikh-e-Ahmadiyyat:
“Acting in accordance with Divine instructions, the Promised Messiahas made special arrangements to promulgate this message [of reformation and revelations] across the globe. Hence, the Promised Messiahas published a total of 20,000 announcements in Urdu and English and dispatched them through registered couriers to all the famous religious leaders, rulers, great emperors, scholars, intellectuals, judges and noblemen of Asia, Europe and America. There was not a single noteworthy personality left in that age whom he had not conveyed this message of God to.” (Tarikh-e-Ahmadiyyat, Vol. 1, pp. 253-254)
Hazrat Mirza Bashiruddin Mahmud Ahmad, Musleh-e-Maud, Khalifatul Masih IIra, states:
“It is incumbent upon us to caution the world about their mistakes and to take advantage of every opportunity for the tabligh of Islam as much as possible. After this war [World War II], at least two countries must be convinced to consider our message with seriousness and sincerity, i.e. Germany and Japan. These two countries are such that they would be inclined to hear our message.
“Specifically, Germany is a type of country which stands out in this regard. We will reach out to these people and draw their attention to understand the fact of how greatly Christianity has failed and that regardless of being slaves to Christianity for almost 2,000 years, they have still remained slaves, the example of which is nowhere to be found except for the ancient times. Thereupon, their hearts shall incline towards Islam and they shall be of the opinion that they should leave Christianity and begin to ponder over Islam and observe as to what remedy it suggests for their sorrows.
“Thus, that time is fast approaching when we will have to present clearly the failure of Christianity and the supremacy of Islamic teachings before German and Japanese nations, both. In the same manner, we will be able to indicate the eminence of every principle of Islam before the intelligentsia of England, America and Russia.
“However, this is only possible when our strength is organised, when members of our Jamaat are ready to make sacrifices in abundance, when we have missionaries in large numbers and when we possess all that is required for these missionaries. Likewise, this task is only possible when all the youngsters of our Jamaat are well organised and not one individual is left who is out of that system. In order to establish Islam and Ahmadiyyat, each one of them should engage day and night obsessively, removing their focus from everything and engage in this task.” (Mash‘al-e-Rah, Vol. 1, pp. 377-378)
“Hazrat Musleh-e-Maudra was invited by the local Jamaat of Hamburg, Germany during his tour of Europe [in 1955]. He stated on the occasion that the German nation held a dignified character and they had rebuilt the city of Hamburg in a short period of time. Huzoorra said that the German nation, with its lively spirit, would rapidly accept Islam which itself encourages to elevate the spirit. Huzoorra said that he was the follower of that Prophetsa who made great efforts to establish peace and harmony across the globe and being triumphant, showed remarkable forgiveness towards his enemies who had left no stone unturned after they put the Muslims to sword.” (Tarikh-e-Ahmadiyyat, Vol. 17, pp. 532-533)
Mission house in Germany
Regarding the establishment of a mission house in Germany, it stated in Tarikh-e-Ahmadiyyat:
“At the end of this year , owing to the efforts of Maulvi Mubarak Ali Sahib BA (Bengali) and Malik Ghulam Farid Sahib MA, the second Islamic mission in Europe has been established in Germany. Maulvi Mubarak Ali Sahib, who was carrying out tabligh in London since 1920, was sent to Berlin and Malik Ghulam Farid Sahib MA was sent from Qadian by Hazrat Khalifatul Masih IIra on 26 November 1923, reaching Berlin on 18 December 1923 at 10 o’clock in the morning.
“Renowned authors of Germany, Professor Fernsehe LLD and Dr Uska inclined towards Ahmadiyyat and following them, the college professors and students in Berlin were also inclined towards the quest of researching about the Jamaat. The aim of Hazrat Khalifatul Masih IIra was to establish there a significant hub of Islam. Therefore, he encouraged [the members of Jamaat] to build the Berlin Mosque, but the [econmic and political] situation of Germany suddenly took a turn for the worst. Paper currency was practically terminated and gold coins were introduced which caused prices to soar three hundred times. On one side, the expenses of a missionary rose up to 25 pounds from 6 pounds, while on the other hand, the expenses for building the Berlin Mosque were indicated to have reached 1.5 million rupees, which were previously estimated to be 30,000 rupees.
“Owing to the given circumstances, Hazrat Khalifatul Masih IIra postponed the construction of the mosque and decided that instead of dividing the strength by establishing two marakiz [sing. markaz] in Europe, they should strengthen the mission house of London and the tabligh of Islam in central Europe should be carried out from there. This decision was taken in March 1924 and in May 1924, this [Berlin mission house] was closed and Malik Ghulam Farid Sahib MA, missionary to Germany, moved to the UK. Ultimately, this [mission house] was reestablished after quarter of a century through Chaudhry Abdul Latif BA in 1949.” (Tarikh-e-Ahmadiyyat, Vol. 4, pp. 411-412)
Reestablishment of German mission
“The German mission was reinitiated through the hands of a life devotee, Chaudhry Abdul Latif BA on 20 January 1949, which was previously established through Maulvi Mubarak Ali Sahib Bengali and Malik Ghulam Farid Sahib MA in 1923, beforing being closed down in 1924.
“Chaudhry Sahib established the [Ahmadiyya] Markaz of tabligh in Hamburg. Initially, he began to learn German for a period of time and meanwhile, sufficed with English. He conducted the first gathering of tabligh in the large hall of the state building (Debnicke), situated in the city centre. He also delivered lectures arranged by the Universal League and Hamburg Study Club. In addition to the lectures, Chaudhry Sahib focused on writing and published the German translation of Hazrat Musleh-e-Maud’sra book, The Life and Teachings of Prophet Muhammad from Zurich. This was the first book of the Ahmadiyya Jamaat which was published in that era of the mission.
“Several Germans have accepted Islam through the efforts of Switzerland’s mission. Abdul Karim Dunter showed exceptional passion from among them and became the right hand of Germany’s missionary. Mr Hans Dunger and Mr E Nowak embraced Ahmadiyyat on 18 October and 25 November  respectively and they were given the Islamic names Abdul Hameed and Abdul Rahim. In this way, a small Jamaat began to form in the very first year.”
Accommodation difficulties for the missionary of Islam
“In the beginning, Chaudhry Sahib lived in the house of a new convert, Mr Kohne, but that person parted from the Jamaat and made it difficult for Chaudhry Sahib to continue living in the country. Following the defeat in the World War, Germany was experiencing tough circumstances in those days and the availability of a residential property seemed impossible. In spite of all this, Allah the Almighty came to our aid and help in such a sublime manner that the government of Germany itself accepted the residential rights of the missionary of Islam in Hamburg and arranged for a residential house for him.”
Establishment of Ahmadiyya Jamaat in Nuremburg
“Thus far, Ahmadiyyat had been established in Hamburg but its spread reached Nuremburg in 1952. By the grace and blessings of Allah, a new Jamaat comprising of three individuals was established over there. Thereafter, a new German convert, Omar Hoffer was appointed there as an honourary missionary who continued to serve with extreme devotion till the year 1968.” (Tarikh-e-Ahmadiyyat, Vol. 13, pp. 137-138)
Publication of German translation of the Holy Quran
“In the beginning of 1954, when the Ahmadiyya Muslim Mission of Switzerland published the German translation of the Holy Quran, it was published in Germany as well. This translation produced a huge impact on the intellectual class of that country. It was greatly acknowledged by the German press while German journals and magazines wrote exquisite reviews on it. Two editions of this translation have been published.” (Tarikh-e-Ahmadiyyat, Vol. 13, p. 150)
Der Islam magazine
“Although the German [magazine], the monthly Der Islam, began to publish in 1948 [this should 1949 – Editor] from the Switzerland mission, the task of its publication was handed over to the German mission in 1962 and it began to publish from Hamburg. In the year 1970, when the Markaz of German missions was shifted from Hamburg to Frankfurt, Der Islam magazine began to publish from Frankfurt as well.” (Tarikh-e-Ahmadiyyat, Vol. 13, pp. 151-153)
Hazrat Khalifatul Masih IIIrh in Germany
“The primary foundation of Islam’s spiritual revolution in Germany had been laid by the blessed hands of Hazrat Musleh-e-Maudra. In order to make that foundation stronger and larger than before, the promised grandson of the blessed Mahdi, Hazrat Mirza Nasir Ahmad, Khalifatul Masih IIIrh went to Germany during his famous tour of Europe in 1967. Hazrat Khalifatul Masih IIIrh stayed in Frankfurt from 8 to 10 July.
“A huge welcome ceremony was arranged in Huzoor’srh honour by the Germany Jamaat on 9 July. Apart from devoted Ahmadis of Germany, the [ceremony] had the participation of various esteemed personalities of the city, i.e. clergymen, lawyers and professors.
“On that occasion, Missionary In-charge, Chaudhry Abdul Latif Sahib read out the welcoming words, in response to which Huzoorrh delivered an impressive address in English. In that [address], Huzoorrh gave a wonderful message to the Germans saying, ‘Allah the Almighty has sent His promised one for the help and assistance of Islam as the reformer, Promised Messiah and Mahdi of this age. He challenged the world that God Almighty has manifested countless signs on his hand in the capacity of the Holy Prophet’ssa noble son and if anyone from among the Christians could prove that the miracles of Jesusas were greater in superiority and magnitude than his miracles, then he would be ready to present a mighty reward for him.’
“Carrying on with the subject, Huzoorrh stated, ‘In the capacity of the third Khalifa of the Promised Messiahas, I repeat the same challenge and we will be extremely delighted if the leaders of other religions accept my challenge because in that way, the world shall witness a manifest sign of the truth of Islam and the founder of the Ahmadiyya Jamaat.’
“At the end, Huzoorrh said, ‘I solemnly claim that the God of Islam is a living God and the Holy Prophetsa is a living prophet [in spirit] and the Promised Messiahas is his noble son.’” (Tarikh-e-Ahmadiyyat, Vol. 13, pp. 154-155)
“When Hazrat Khalifatul Masih IIIrh was in Frankfurt, he expressed his dream from the past, bearing glad tidings about the German nation that there was a place where Hitler was present as well and he said to Huzoorrh, ‘Come with me so that I may show you my museum.’ Hence, he escorted Huzoorrh to a room which had a collection of various things. A stone was placed at the centre of the room which looked like a betel leaf. That stone bore the inscription of äîÇ Çðäٰçî ÇðäñîÇ Çääñٰç [There is none worthy of worship accept Allah]. Huzoorrh interpreted the dream to mean that though the German nation appears to be hard-hearted at first or outwardly away from religion, but their hearts possess the ability to accept Islam.” (Tarikh-e-Ahmadiyyat, Vol. 13, p. 155)
Mission and mosque in Berlin
It is recorded in Tarikh-e-Ahmadiyyat:
“Hazrat Khalifatul Masih IIra had been making great efforts to build a mosque in Germany for a period of time. Finally, Maulvi Mubarak Ali Sahib was sent to Berlin from London in September 1922. He managed to obtain a piece of land under the guidance of Huzoorra. Thereafter, Huzoorra launched an appeal on 2 February 1923 that the Berlin Mosque should be built from the contribution of women’s Chanda [monetary sacrifice].
“This appeal uplifted the morale of Ahmadi women and initiated a remarkable passion of sincerity, sacrifice, devotion and divine spirit which has no equivalent in the history of Islam. If there exists a similar example, then that is only of the female Companions of the early period of Islam.
“Hence, Hazrat Ummul Momineen (Syeda Nusrat Jehan Begum Sahibara) received a share of 500 rupees from a property and she presented all of it in Chanda. Hazrat Nawab Mubaraka Begum Sahibara presented 1,000 rupees. Hazrat Nawab Amatul Hafeez Begum Sahibara, the wife of Sahibzada Mirza Sharif Ahmad Sahibra, Hazrat Umme Daud (wife of Hazrat Mir Muhammad Ishaq Sahibra) and the wife of Khan Bahadur Hazrat Sahibzada Mirza Sultan Ahmad contributed to the cause to a great extent. The immediate family of Hazrat Khalifatul Masih IIra did not fall behind in [monetary] sacrifices from other blessed female family members of the Promised Messiahas. Hazrat Umme Nasirra received a sum of money from Huzoorra, half of which she presented for Wasiyyatand the rest, in this cause. Hazrat Amatul Haye Sahiba presented 100 rupees. Hazrat Umme Tahirra presented one of her necklaces and some money.
“Among other women of Qadian, the family members of Hazrat Sheikh Yaqub Ali Irfani Sahibra, Hazrat Qazi Amir Hussein Sahibra and Hamidah Begum Sahiba (daughter of Hazrat Pir Manzur Muhammad Sahibra) took special part in contribution. A very poor and feeble pathan widow who was an immigrant and used walk with great difficulty with the help of a stick came on foot and presented two rupees before Huzoorra. This woman was poverty-stricken. She had a handful of hens and she used fulfill some of her necessities by selling eggs while the rest of her expenses were managed through the aid of the [Jamaat’s] system. A Punjabi widow who had nothing except for jewellery, presented one of her jewellery sets for the mosque. Another widow who was fostering a number of orphans and had nothing to present from jewellery or wealth gave her utensils of everyday use. One of the ladies presented her jewellery for the cause and went back in order to present some utensils as well. Her husband said that she had already presented jewellery to which she responded that she was experiencing such a passion that if there arose a need for the religion of God and His prophet, she would sell him and present him for the cause [only if it was possible and permitted].
“Though these words were not at all worthy of praise either ethically or by the Shariah (divine law), but one can surely assess the passion which made an illiterate lady show an extreme spirit of devotion in this manner. The wife of a brother from Bhagalpur reached Al-Dar(Qadian) with two goats and said that there was nothing in their home except themselves and only the two goats were present, so they should be accepted.
“The ladies outside of Qadian showed highly inspiring and prideworthy examples as well. The wife of Captain Abdul Karim Sahib (Ex-Commander in Chief of Khairpur State) presented all of her jewellery and precious fabric in Chanda. Similar examples were displayed by the female family members of Chaudhry Muhammad Hussein Sahib Sadr Revenue Official of Sialkot, Seith Ibrahim Sahib, Khan Bahadur Khan Sahib Assistant Political Officer of Chakdarra (Bannu), Hazrat Maulvi Abdullah Sahib Sanaurira, Dr Azam Ali Sahib Jalandhari, Khan Bahadur Sahib Khan Nun Extra Assistant Commissioner, Hazrat Dr Qazi Karam Ilahi Sahib Amir Jamaat Amritsar (father of Muhammad Aslam Sahib) and Mian Muhammad Din Sahib Revenue Accountant.
“Unfortunately, due to the unstable political situation of Germany and certain other inevitable impediments, the construction work of the mosque had to be stopped. However, the sacrifices of Ahmadi ladies were not wasted and a mosque was built in London thorough their Chanda, which is the first mosque of Jamaat-e-Ahmadiyya in Europe.” (Tarikh-e-Ahmadiyyat, Vol. 4, pp. 398-400)
Hazrat Musleh-e-Maudra states:
“The condition was such in the year 1920 that when I announced that we would build a mosque in Berlin and 100,000 rupees were needed for it, the ladies of the Jamaat collected that amount in a matter of a month. They removed their jewellery and presented it to collect the money by selling them.
“Today when I mentioned that incident in the ladies’ gathering, one of my wives told me that she was unmindful at that time as she was still a child and she was unaware of the Jamaat’s requirements, but her mother used to say that when Huzoorra appealed for Chanda, her mother-in-law (who was Syed Waliullah Shah Sahib’s mother and my mother-in-law as well) gathered her daughters and daughters-in-law, and said, ‘Each one of you should place your jewellery here.’ Thereafter, she sold that jewellery and presented Chanda for the Berlin Mosque.
“These instances were not rare in the Jamaat but in fact there were hundreds of households in which ladies removed the jewellery of their daughters and daughters-in-law, and selling them, presented [the money] for the Berlin Mosque. Hence, 100,000 rupees were collected within a month.
“… Now, I have appealed for the Hamburg Mosque that members of the Jamaat should present 150 rupees each. However, if Allah the Almighty grants us wealth, then the practice of our Jamaat should be such that each individual should build a mosque independently. I myself contemplate that if God Almighty grants me [financial] ease, then I may build a mosque on my own. It is not impossible that God Almighty grants me that strength within my lifetime and I am able to build a mosque in any one of the European countries.” (Mash‘al-e-Rah, Vol. 1, pp. 773-775)
Construction and inauguration of a mosque in Hamburg
During his stay in Hamburg on 26 June 1955, Hazrat Musleh-e-Maudra had instructed to build a mosque in Germany without delay. Hence, God Almighty fulfilled Huzoor’sra blessed wish within two years. The foundation stone of the Hamburg Mosque was laid on 22 February 1957 and Hazrat Chaudhry Zafarullah Khan Sahibra inaugurated it on 22 June 1957 and read out the following message of Huzoorra on the occasion in English:
“Brothers of Germany! Assalamo Alaikum wa Rahmatullahe wa Barakatohu.
“I am sending my son, Mirza Mubarak Ahmad, to participate in the inaugural ceremony of the Hamburg Mosque. Although the inaugural ceremony will be carried out by Chaudhry Muhammad Zafrulla Khan Sahib Insha-Allah, but Mirza Mubarak Ahmad will participate as my representative. With Allah the Almighty’s help, my aim is to inaugurate a series of mosques in various other cities of Germany as well. Hopefully, Mirza Mubarak Ahmad meeting with Maulvi Abdul Latif Sahib will surely bring about schemes so that mosques can be built right away.
“May God enable the German nation to accept Islam at the earliest. According to its inner abilities, just as it is the leader of the material world in Europe, may it emerge as a spiritual leader as well. Thus far, it is true that a German new convert is carrying out tabligh in America after devoting his life. However, I am not satisfied by one missionary and dozens of new converts, in fact I desire that countless missionaries are produced from Germany and millions of German natives accept Islam so that Europe’s leadership in the task of promulgating Islam rests in the hands of the German nation. O Allah, accept our prayer.
“Humbly yours, Mirza Mahmud Ahmad, Khalifatul Masih II.” (Tarikh-e-Ahmadiyyat, Vol. 4, p. 148)
After the completion of the Ahmadiyya Jamaat’s mosque in Hamburg, the reviews by the press of that time can be read in various newspapers from that time.
A religious newspaper The Church, expressed in the following way:
“Hamburg has become the centre for the holy war between Christianity and Islam. It rests upon us as to how we can encounter the dangers attached with the building of a mosque.
“The missionary of the Ahmadiyya Jamaat for Germany, Mr Abdul Latif came to Hamburg in 1949 and the building of a mosque in 1957 points out his successful efforts.” (Tarikh-e-Ahmadiyyat, Vol. 13, p. 150)
A correspondent of Bilefield newspaper wrote under the heading, “Mosques in our country”:
“I was totally surprised when I was told during my stay in Hamburg that a mosque has been built in Hamburg. After further research, I was even more amazed to learn the fact that apart from the Hamburg Mosque, the Ahmadiyya Jamaat intends to build mosques on a step-by-step basis at various other famous places of Germany.” (Tarikh-e-Ahmadiyyat, Vol. 13, p. 150)
Construction and inauguration of Frankfurt mosque
“Less than two years had passed over the inauguration of the Hamburg Mosque when Allah the Almighty granted the German mission the strength to build another mosque. Chaudhry Muhammad Zafrulla Khan Sahib came from Holland for it.
“Nearly 40 newspapers of Germany published the photographs of the mosque and several scenes of the inaugural proceedings. Moreover, they gave remarkable reviews over the tabligh efforts of the Ahmadiyya Jamaat. For instance, the newspaper Mannheim Morgen on 15 September 1959 gave the photograph of the mosque’s inaugural ceremony and stated under the heading “Islam is heading towards Europe”:
“The followers of Muhammad[sa] came to the south of France with the help of swords and spears in the past. This task is being carried out with the help of spiritual weapons in the present age. A number of individuals of Islamic countries come to Europe and at the same time try to spread Islam. Likewise, various proselytising sects, particularly that of Mirza Ghulam Ahmad [Sahib] of Qadian established in the year 1890 [sic.] in Punjab, has built mosques at various places.” (Tarikh-e-Ahmadiyyat, Vol. 13, pp. 151-153)
Hazrat Musleh-e-Maudra stated:
“Thus, it is my desire that the mosque in Germany is built by the Chanda of women because people in Europe think that we treat women as animals. When the people of Europe realise that at the present time in this city which is becoming the centre of the world, Muslim women have prepared a mosque for the new converts of Germany, then the people of Europe will be regretful and surprised at their viewpoint which they hold about Muslim women. They would be awe-stricken when walking past the mosque and the mosque would call out aloud that those clergymen tell lies who say that there is no status for women in Islam. Such people are of the view that women are animals in our country and they are considered and believed as such; as though we think that Muslim women are mere animals. After a mosque is built there by the Chanda of women, then they will know that our women are also aware of the fact that the world possesses the kind of people who worship a mere human being [i.e. Jesusas].
“Generally, they [Europeans] have this custom that the husband and wife clash with each other a month after their marriage and the husband roams about in search of another mate while the wife too wanders in search of another partner. People there are surprised to see a husband and wife happily living together with love; the true relationship which is present between the husband and wife in our society is rarely present in them but the situation is such that the pen is in the hand of an enemy. As the pen is in their hands, therefore they write against Islam and Muslims as they will.
“Maulvi Mubarak Ali Sahib has sent a letter in which he has stated that an expert architect gave an estimate of 250,000 rupees for the construction of a mosque because he thought that the group of people who had decided to build a mosque in their country would have been extremely wealthy, but then Maulvi Sahib told him that we did not possess that amount of money. Thereupon, he gave an estimate of 50,000 rupees, i.e. 5,000 rupees for the land and 45,000 rupees for the building.
“As he points out that it is a big city and a city of affluent people, therefore a great building is required which can cause an impact on people so that they are attracted towards it. An ordinary building would not make an impact on people as it would be like a house. Moreover, if it contains a part built by raw bricks, it would seem inappropriate. Nevertheless, according to his estimate, the mosque can be constructed in 50,000 rupees which would not only be a mosque but it would contain a house for the accommodation of missionaries.
“I present this matter before all women of the Jamaat. This is the age of competition. Women of foreign countries even compete with men studying law and medicine. They do this to show that they are parallel to men, regardless of whether they are able to practice that line of work or not. However, they waste their lives in this, but we must take part in a virtuous competition. Therefore, we say that this time, women should build a mosque in Europe.
“Previously, the total of women’s Chanda for the London Mosque was 10,000 rupees and according to the Shariah, it should be half with respect to men because the Shariah has declared their share to be half. Therefore, women should present 50,000 rupees Chandawithin three months for the Ahmadiyya mosque of Berlin. It is a prophecy of the Promised Messiahas that the scepter of the Tsar would be snatched and handed over to him; the door to Russia is Berlin and only through that door can Russia be won. Carrying out tabligh in Russia is still quite far as it is even impossible to enter it in the present circumstances.
“Germans are the means to tabligh in it and we can very easily carry out tabligh in Russia through the Germans. It will leave a huge impact upon them when this prophecy is fulfilled through women. Those who come after them will realise that women equally possess that passion which is present in men. On the other hand, Europe will recognise the burning passion of Muslim women for the promulgation of their religion and it will be engraved on the façade of the mosque that this mosque was built by Ahmadi women for the new converts. It will also be an eye-opener for others and Paighamis will also understand that Ahmadi women alone present that amount of Chandawhich the Paighamis collect by begging of other people.
“Thus, women of all places must be informed to present Chanda for this cause and every newspaper which is published from Qadian must appeal to give Chanda for it. Moreover, this address of mine should be published so that those people who are associated with these newspapers express to the women in their homes and motivate them to present Chandafor the mosque within three months. The men of all places must inform the women in their households about this and those men whose wives were unable to attend the Friday prayer should inform them and help raise funds for this cause.
“And I have entrusted this task to the Anjuman [body] which has been named by me as Lajna Imaillah.” (Al Fazl, 8 February 1923)
Hazrat Musleh-e-Maudra in Germany
During his tour of Europe, Hazrat Musleh-e-Maudra reached the city of Nuremburg, Germany from Austria on 15 June 1955. Chaudhry Abdul Latif Sahib, Missionary of Germany and various other devoted fellows were present there to welcome [Huzoorra] at around 6pm. There were 15 Ahmadi men and women in Nuremburg at that time who were brimming with passion and admiration. At this place, Huzoorra shared his views with the new converts on the subject of tabligh in Germany.
Huzoorra went to The Hague on 17 June and stayed in Holland until 24 June.
Huzoor’s flightlanded at Hamburg Airport on 25 June accompanied by Syeda Umme Mateen Sahiba, Syeda Mehar Apa, Sahibzadi Amatul Jamil Sahiba, Sahibzadi Amatul Mateen Sahiba, Sahibzada Dr Mirza Munawar Ahmad Sahib, Mir Daud Ahmad Sahib, Sahibzada Mirza Mubarak Ahmad Sahib and his wife and Dr Hasmatullah Sahib. (Tarikh-e-Ahmadiyyat, Vol. 13, pp. 529-535)
