Khwaja Ghulam Farid (1845–1901) was a 19th-century Punjabi Sufi poet of the Indian subcontinent. He was a scholar and writer who knew several different languages. He belonged to Chishti–Nizami Sufi order. He was born in and died at Chachran town and was buried at Mithankot, Punjab, Pakistan.

Hadhrat Khwaja Ghulam Fareed, Sajjadah Nasheen of Chachrhan Sharif says in regards to Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad of Qadian, the Promised Messiah and Imam Mahdi a.s:

“Hadhrat Mirza Sahib spends all his time in worshipping God, the Exalted and the Majestic: either he is engaged in the daily prayer, or recitation of the Holy Qur’an, or keeps himself occupied in other religious tasks. And he has set about to defend Islam with such high resolve that he has invited even the Empress of the British Empire to accept Islam. Similarly, he has sent the message of Islam to the monarchs of Russia, France and other kingdoms. All his efforts and endeavours are geared towards ensuring that people must abandon the doctrine of Trinity and the Cross—which is unequivocal disbelief—and accept the Oneness of God. But look at the predicament of contemporary religious divines that they have completely overlooked the actions of all the other false religions and have rallied against such a righteous man who hails from Ahle Sunnah wa al-Jama’ah, adheres to the straight path and guides others to it. And they issue edicts of heresy (fatwa-e-kufr) against him! Look at his Arabic works which surpass human contrivance: all his works are permeated with profound perceptions, truths, and spiritual guidance. He is certainly not a disbeliever in the essentials of the practice of Ahle Sunnah wa al-Jama’ah and of the Faith.” [Isharaat-e-Fareedi, vol. 3, pp. 69-70. Translated from Persian]
