The research team here at the blog has found the first ever english translation of the Quran by Ahmadiyya sources. It was written by Dr. Abdul Hakeem Khan, this is before he argued with MGA on the topic of salvation and verse 2:62. In fact, the Review of Religions (see Oct-1905, page 404) even posted an ad wherein they were marketing this translation to the world as an official Ahmadiyya translation and etc. Dr. Khan was an Ahmadi for 20+ years up to 1906, he saw MGA as his peer even before MGA was accepting Bait in 1889. MGA slipped-up in this exchange and told Dr. Khan that all Muslims who rejected him (MGA) were Kafirs. This would prompt MGA’s son, Mirza Basheer-uddin Mahmud Ahmad to do Takfir in 1911 and continue to do it until 1922.
The biological birth of Esa (as)
On page 112 of this Tafsir, the Ahmadi author argues that Esa (As) was born from biological parents, this seems to confirm what MGA and his team wrote in 1891, in Izala Auham, i.e. that Esa (As) was raised by his father, Joseph. Muhammad Ali split in 1914 and his Tafsir was published in 1917 wherein he made the same argument, i.e. that Esa (As) was fathered biologically by Joseph and the Qadianis never objected.
MGA issued a fatwa in 1904 which is opposite of the Lahori belief
Nooruddin argued with MGA on this topic. MGA then issued a fatwa on this topic, read it here:
As soon as MGA died, Noorudin started writing that Esa (As) had a father again
Mirza Tahir Ahmad called Maryam (ra) as a Hermaphradite
The missing link??
We are missing the 2nd Khalifa’s comments on this topic. We are missing all statements from the Qadianis from 1914 to 1984.
