DetailsTazkiratush-Shahadatain was published in 1903 and it has two parts. One part narrates the incidents leading to the martyrdom of Hadhrat Sahibzada Abdul Latif, may God be pleased with him, who was a great Chief of Khost Afghanistan, and of his pupil Hadhrat Mian AbdurRahman, may God be pleased with him. All this is written by Hadhrat Ahmed (as) in the Urdu language. The other part of the book is in the Arabic language and it consists of three brochures, viz. Al waqto waq tud Duai-wa-la waqtul malahim wa Qatlil a'dai (i.e. This is time for prayers and not the time for fierce battles and beheading of the enemies); Zikro Haqiqatul Wahyi was Zarab husulihi i.e. a narration of the truth about the revelation and how to have it); the third brochure is named Alamatul Moqarra'bin (i.e. The signs of those who are near to God). Tadhkira-tush-Shahadatain In this book he has related graphically two of the most brutal and heinous murders ever perpetrated in the history of religion. This most brutal martyrdom of two of his pledged devotees is all the more deplorable as it was committed in the name of Islam, the religion of peace, and would cause any reader to shudder with horror.
To surrender one's life in the name of faith for seeking the pleasure of Allah and to remain steadfast under the most trying conditions is indeed a very commendable act: The martyrdom of these two devotees deserves the highest praise, sympathy and love.
The martyr Hazrat Sahibzada Sayyad Abdul Latif was not only a highly placed and esteemed chief of Khost in Afghanistan, but was also the most reputed mentor of his country. The fame of his piety, knowledge and wisdom had spread even beyond the domains of Afghanistan.
The second martyr, Hazrat Mian Abdul Rahman, one of the most trusted pupils of the Sahibzada, was strangled to death in a very cruel manner for the very same reason of accepting the Promised Messiah.
The Promised Messiah has narrated how these two venerable persons joined the fold of Ahmadiyyat. He mentions the reason which made the Sahibzada fully convinced of his truth before taking the oath of allegiance at his sacred hand. The Sahibzada fulfilled this oath by surrendering his life even though many worldly honors were offered to him by the king if he retracted from his allegiance.
Urdu translation of Seeratul Abdal[The Characteristics of the Godly People]
This also contains the Urdu translation of this Arabic book. To start with Hadhrat Ahmed (as) says that he would like to remind the people that he had been commissioned by God through revelation and has been sent to all of them and the angels had descended for him from the heavens to the earth and his abode-Qadian-had been made a sacred place. He further says that if the people thought over the matter they would see what he has seen and they would drink pure water (i.e. they would receive knowledge from the heavens) and their certainty would increase. He puts forward his claim to be the Promised Messiah and he offers good news to the Godfearing people (Muttaqi). As for the God-fearing people, he quotes their signs and tells the readers how to distinguish them from others. In fact, this book is a continuation of Alamatul Muqarrabeen and in it Hadhrat Ahmed (as) has explained at a greater length the characteristics of those who are commissioned by God to reform the world and he also dilates on the blessings that accrue to the world through these Reformers. Hadhrat Ahmad (as) claims that he possesses all these characteristics and he definitely is a Reformer and commissioned by God to bring the people back to His door.
