DetailsNishan-i-Aasmani Shahadatul Mulhimin (The Heavenly Signs and the testimony of those who are the recipients of Revelation from God)
The Promised Messiah published this book in 1892 and it contains the witnesses of the godly persons in favor of the claim of Hazrat Ahmad (as) to be the Promised Messiah and Mahdi. One of these divine persons was Ghulab Shah. Hadhrat Ahmad (as) says that Ghulab Shah had died some thirty years ago. Mian Karim Bakhsh was the one who was told by Ghulab Shah about the appearance of the Mahdi.
The other prophecy was made by Nimatullah who was a greatly revered godly person and the prophecy made by him is contained in a poem which he composed in the Persian language. His prophecy makes mention of the name of the Promised Messiah as Ahmad and also points to the fact that the Promised Messiah (as) would get an illustrious son - it draws the attention of the reader very conspicuously to the Hadith of the Holy Prophet, peace and blessings of Allah be upon him, to the effect that the Promised Messiah would be married and get a son.
Hadhrat Ahmad (as), then remarks that it is mentioned in the books of Hadith that when the Promised Messiah appears, the Ulema will oppose him. Next, Hadhrat Ahmad (as) gives the statement of Karim Bakhsh Jamalpuri who says that he is doing so out of sympathy for his Muslim brothers.
In this statement, Karim Bakhsh says that Ghulab Shah said it three times that the name of the Promised Messiah was Ghulam Ahmad and that the Messiah who was the son of Mary had died and he was therefore not coming back. Ghulab Shah also told him that (Hadhrat) Ghulam Ahmad (as) was to come in Qadian, i.e. he was to be born there.
He appeals to public that clearing their minds of all the preconceived ideas they should pray to God - he specifies a method of prayer by saying that two Rakaat prayers should be offered, reciting Sura Yasin in the first Rakaat and Sura Ikhlas (twenty-one times) in the second Rakaat and Allahumma salli, three hundred times and Istighfar three hundred times. They should pray to God that He may let them know the truth of his claim.
