This short essay will cover MGA and his use of 69:44 in terms of his new theory that a false prophet never lives 23-years, whilst claiming to receive communications from Allah.


Arabaeen, Page 3, (1900):

“Thousands of Muslim Savants and spiritual leaders have always advances this argument before the infidels, and no Christian or Jew has yet to come forward to identify or point out one such person who having fabricated a claim to be an Appointee of Allah (as per prophecy), had then passed 23 years of his remaining life”

This was the first time in the literature of the AMJ that they used “23-years” as a barometer for the success of any prophet.  What was the reason?  What was the purpose of MGA and his team making this statement?  The answer: MGA has just claimed prophethood, in the summer of 1900 (See Mahmud Ahmad, Haqiqatun Nubuwwat {1915}).

MGA and his team were planning on claiming prophethood, however, very silently, they wanted to backdate MGA’s prophethood to 1880.  Since 20 years had already passed, they figured that only a few years were left and MGA could use this argument as proof, in attempt to get more people to donate money to the Mirza family, aka a registered corporation.

Background on Chapter 69

Per the official Ahmadiyya commentary on the Quran, Chapter 69 was revealed very early on during the meccan period.  This is when Muhammad (saw) had newly claimed to be a prophet, and Allah had assured Muhammad (saw) that he was in fact a prophet, and if he wasn’t, Allah would have already ended his life for lying.  This is exactly what Ibn Kathir wrote in his famous tafsir.  Further, at the time when this Ayah was revealed, Muhammad (Saw) had barely claimed prophethood, 23 years hadn’t elapsed.  Moreover, this ayah was for Muhammad (saw), to clear his doubts.

The Quran on the killing of Prophets

The Quran repeatedley refers to how the Jews killed true prophets of Allah.   In fact, Yahya (As) was assassinated.  MGA was silent on all of these verses.  Nonetheless, even MGA wrote about Yahya as follows:

1891— Izala Auhham, RK volume 3 page 314, he calls yahya (AS) to be Shaheed

1902—in tohfa golveria RK volume 17 page 103, he says death by killing of a prophet is no proof that the prophet is not a true prophet and then on same page later he says if EsaAS did not die on cross then yahha AS also did not get killed but was lifter up to heaven alive

MGA contradicts himself

Obviously, we see MGA making the argument that if any prophet lasts 23-years, he must be true, nonetheless, MGA contradicts himself just a few years later, in a book that is backdated to 1900, however, published in 1902, i.e. Tofa Gulariva.  Why did MGA always make opposing arguments?  The answer is….to create wiggle room and in this case..they created it in case of the murder of MGA.

The Quran on the killing of prophets, Part-2

So remember, the Ahmadi-mullah will do anything for job security.  So Malik Ghulam Fareed, the author of the 5-volume commentary by the Qadiani branch, when it came to 2:91 (see page 150_, they purposely re-interpretted a clear verse of the quran only to promote the idea that prophets cannot be killed.

Even if Muhammad (Saw) was killed, we would still believe in Islam

The Ahmadis seem to forget how in 3:144, Allah categorically tells us that if Muhammad (SAW) is killed in battle…its nothing new.  Prophets have been killed in the past.  Here is the quotation:

“”””With regard to their being routed, when it was rumoured that the Prophet had been killed and the hypocrites had said to the believers, ‘If he has been killed, go back to your [previous] religion’, the following was revealed: Muhammad is only a messenger; messengers have passed away before him. Why, if he should die or is slain, like others, will you turn back on your heels, will you return to unbelief (the last statement is the locus of the interrogative of denial, in other words, ‘he was not a worshipped being, so that [if he were to die] you should turn back [to your previous religion]’). If any man should turn back on his heels, he will not harm God in any way, but will be harming himself, and God will requite those that are thankful, for His graces by staying firm.”””


Even the most novice Ahmadis in the world will make these ridiculous arguments:

  1.  If we are not from Allah, why are we growing?
  2.  Why didnt Allah kill MGA if he was false
  3.  Allah just doesnt allow false prophets to live, and MGA lived 28 years after claiming divine communication.

Answers: We are living in the era of free markets.  And religion is also a free market. Ahmadiyya has grown just like Sikhism, Mormonism, JW’s, 7th day adventist and many many others. Ahmadiyya has benefited immensely from Capitalism, as have these other non-profit corporations.  Allah doesnt kill false prophets as Ahmadis believe, many false prophets lived long lives, in fact, Musailma Kazzab outlived Muhammad (saw).  MGA claimed prophethood in 1901, he died 6 1/2 years later, so, he didnt even last as long as he should have.  The funny thing here is that the qadiani branch backdates MGA’s prophethood to 1880.

Furthermore, since MGA claimed prophethood in 1901, his prophethood only lasted 6 1/2 years and thus he disproved himself with his own argument.
