Chapter 25: The Marriages of Hazrat Mirza’s Sons

Nikah of Mian Bashir Ahmad:

On September 12, 1902, Mian Bashir Ahmad, Hazrat Mirza’s second son from his second wife, married Sarwar Sultan Sahiba, the daughter of Maulana Ghulam Hasan of Peshawar. The mehr (dowry) was fixed at one thousand rupees. The marriage was performed by Maulana Nur-ud-Din following the Asr (late afternoon) prayer, and the guests were served with food and tea after the ceremony.

Nikah and Marriage of Mirza Mahmud Ahmad:

Mirza Mahmud Ahmad, Hazrat Mirza’s oldest son from his second wife, married Mahmuda Begum, the daughter of Dr. Khalifa Rashid-ud-Din in early October 1902. Since the bride’s father was residing in Rurki in connection with his government job, the bridegroom party traveled to Rurki for the wedding ceremony. Hazrat Mirza did not accompany the party. The wedding party returned to Qadian with the bride on October 5, 1902, arriving soon after the Asr (late afternoon) prayer.
