Be it clear that what happened in Kabul after the martyrdom of Maulavi Sahibzada ‘Abdul Latif was also a Divine sign in my favour. Since the murder of this innocent martyr was intended to humiliate me, Divine wrath drew the sword of His fury at Kabul. Severe cholera broke out in the city after the murder of this innocent martyr, and most of those who had taken part in the conspiracy of murder fell victim to it. The house of the Amir of Kabul suffered fatalities and became a scene of mourning. Thousands of people who were rejoicing over this murder also fell prey to death. The cholera epidemic struck with such ferocity as was never witnessed in Kabul before. Thus, the Revelation, “I shall humiliate him who offends you,” was fulfilled in this case also.

Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad, the Promised Messiah and Mahdi (as), wrote on September 5, 1903:
I saw in a vision that a very long branch of a cypress tree which was very lovely and green, had been cut down in our garden. Someone was holding it in his hand while another person said it should be planted next to the jujube tree, which was cut down earlier, so it would grow again. At the same time, I received the Revelation: “Was cut off from Kabul and came straight to us.” I interpreted this to mean that the blood of the deceased, martyr [Sahibzadah ‘Abdul-Latif (ra)], has fallen upon the ground like a seed and would become very fruitful and would add to the numbers of our Community.
