In 1911, an Ahmadi, Muhammad Zahir Al-Din wrote a book wherein he discussed the prophethood of MGA and its implications of Kufr upon the Muslims of the world. Mahmud Ahmad quotes this book in his 1924 book, “The truth about the split” and Muhammad Ali has quoted him quite a bit also in his books vs. Mahmud Ahmad. Nonetheless, this book is totally missing from all records and archives in 2016. The book may still exist in the Khilafat Library at Rabwah or Qadian, or even in the UK.
