We have collected many quotes and posted them here for further investigation, this book is not yet in english. This book is published right after Athim’s natural death as a sort of celebration of the increasingly incredulous prophecies and advertisements that had obsessed the author during the 1890s. He calls, by name, Christian priests and Islamic scholars to a final mubahila (prayer duel) and when asked about the previous such event with Abdul Haq Ghaznavi, resorts to vicious and vile attacks. He also re-iterates his pre-claim position on prophethood and the third wife who never was. As with most of his books in the 1890s, the same themes dominate: Batalvi, Ghaznavi, Jesus, Muhammadi Begum, Atham and Lekhram.
“There is nothing more foul than a pig in the world. But the ulema who oppose me are more foul than pigs.”
(Anjam-i-Atham, P. 21)
—“I say again and again that quintessence of my prediction in case of the son-in-law of Ahmad Baig shall be his inevitable destiny. Wait for it. If I am a liar then this prediction will not be fulfilled and my death will come.” (Anjam-e-Atham, P. 31).
—“Who does not know that Mr. Atham published a clear statement in the Noor Afshan Paper(which was a Christian newspaper) that ‘definitely during the term of the prophecy I became scared of blood thirsty angels?’ Who does not know that there were so many signs which pointed towards Atham being scared that it is impossible to cover them up?”Anjam-e-Atham, Ruhani Khaza’in Vol. 11, p.17.
–“…then he understood that it was not right of him to show so much agitation due to an Islamic prophecy. It was then that the excuses of attempts to poison and three attempts to murder were made. Because of the level of fear that had been shown by Atham due to his bewilderment, it required that if they were to prove that the cause of this was not the revealed prophecy, then there should be some other reason which was so strong and powerful, that it could instil the fear of death in one’s heart. Therefore, with the support of lies they forged these causes of fear…”
“Who finds it difficult to understand that he faced abasement due to his false and baseless allegations? And there was no way to rid himself of this disgrace other than to have proven the false claims in court or to have brought forward some witnesses or to have sworn to the truth of the claims in a public gathering. However, Mr. Atham did not adopt any of these means”. Anjam-e-Atham, Ruhani Khaza’in Vol. 11, pp. 17-19.
“…then there is another ilham which was proclaimed on 20th February, 1886, and that was that God will increase 3 into 4. At that time there was no sign of my 3 sons (Mahmud, Bashir and Sharif) who are present now ; so it seemed that the ilham meant that first of all 3 sons will be given and then another one will be added who will make the number 4. So a greater part of this ilham is fulfilled as Godhas given me 3 sons from this marriage (the second wife) who are here; and the next one is awaited who will increase the number into 4” Anjam i Athim (1897) Appendix page 14
“Can a wretched imposter who claims messengership and prophethood for himself have any belief in the Holy Quran? And can a man who believes in the Holy Quran, and believes the verse ‘He is the Messenger of Allah and the Khatam an-nabiyyin’ to be the word of God, say that he too is a messenger and prophet after the Holy Prophet Muhammad?
“Anyone who is fair-minded should remember that I have never, at any time, made a claim of nubuwwat or risalat [prophethood or messengership] in the real sense. To use a word in a non-real sense, and to employ it in speech according to its broad, root meaning, does not imply heresy (kufr). However, I do not like even this much, for there is the possibility that ordinary Muslims may misunderstand it.
“However, by virtue of being appointed by God, I cannot conceal those revelations I have received from Him in which the words nubuwwat and risalat occur quite frequently. But I say repeatedly that, in these revelations, the word mursal or rasul or nabi which has occurred about me is not used in its real sense. (Footnote: Such words have not occurred only now, but have been present in my published revelations for sixteen years. So you will find many such revelations about me in the book Barahin Ahmadiyya.) The actual fact, to which I testify with the highest testimony, is that our Holy Prophet, may peace and the blessings of God be upon him, is the Khatam al-anbiyaand after him no prophet is to come, neither an old one nor a new one. …
“But it must be remembered that, as we have explained here, sometimes the revelation from God contains such words about some of His saints in a metaphorical and figurative sense; they are not meant by way of reality. This is the whole controversy which the foolish, prejudiced people have dragged in a different direction. The name ‘prophet of God’ for the Promised Messiah, which is to be found inSahih Muslim etc. from the blessed tongue of the Holy Prophet, is meant in the same metaphorical sense as that in which it occurs in Sufi literature as an accepted and common term for the recipient of Divine communication. Otherwise, how can there be a prophet after the Khatam al-anbiya?”
(Anjam Atham, footnote, pages 27 – 28, published January 1897)
“You have inflicted pain on me with your foulness. You are not truthful. I pray that you die in shame, you son of a harlot.”
(Anjam-i-Atham, P. 288)
