Even though MGA had been called a Kafir in 1884, since he was claiming to have fulfilled all the requirements of Eisa (as), Syed Muhammad Hussain Batalvi assured the world that MGA hadn’t taken it there via his exhaustive review. Thus, MGA was given the benefit of the doubt. MGA went silent on his prophethood and Messiah claims for 6-7 years. Finally, in January of 1891, MGA made the claim of being the Messiah. Syed Muhammad Hussain Batalvi then immediately drafted a letter of mass Takfir and sent it to Syed Nazeer Hussain of Delhi so that he could be the first to sign it. This was also published in Batalvi’s magazine, “Ishaat us Sunnah” (see the full reference in the below). Dard discussed it also in 1947 in his famous autobiography. We have found a portion of this Fatwa in Jalal ud Din Sham‘s 1956 commentary of MGA’s arabic poem entitled Qasidah (1892).
“””As against this accusation perhaps the Qadiani or his friends may put forth two excuses. Firstly, that although the Qadiani is a claimant to prophethood but has also stated at the same time that the other name of this prophethood in muhaddathiyyat which shows that by his claim of prophethood is only meant the claim of muhaddathiyyat and not in reality the claim of being a nabi…..the reply is that although it has been stated by the Qadiani that he is a claimant to that kind of prophethood the door whereof shall remain open unto the Day of Resurrection, and that muhaddathiyat is another name of this prophethood whereof he is the claimant, but he has, at the same time, put such an interpretation upon the term muhaddathiyat, and explained its nature to be such that it cannot mean anything but prophethood. “””

“””Mirza Qadiani is one of the thirty Dajjals mentioned in the hadith, his followers are the children of Dajjal. Muslims must stay away from this type of Dajjal and must not join them in performing any religious matters as they normally would with other Muslims. Muslims should not sit with him nor accept his invitation, should not say prayers behind him, and must not perform his funeral prayer… He and people like him are thieves of religion. They are from Dajjal, they are liars, they are accursed, they are satans… There is no doubt that this Qadiani is a nonbeliever and an apostate… He is a very big Dajjal and is out of the pale of Islam, and is an infidel and is of bad character…, has the lowest morals and is an enemy of God… Any person who doubts in his being on the wrong path is just as wrong himself and is himself a Kafir rather Akfar [the greatest disbeliever]… He is worse than the Satan that is playing with him and he must not be
allowed to be buried in a Muslim cemetery… He is an enemy of the prophets and God is his enemy… Any person who has the same beliefs as of Qadiani is an outcast. Mirza Qadiani is a Dajjal and actually, the leader of Dajjals. Their women’s marriages have been nullified and anyone is free to marry them.”””
