This is quite possibly the most controversial book in Ahmadiyya. It was written by the only college educated son of MGA, Mirza Bashir Ahmad. Mirza Bashir Ahmad was a son of Mirza Ghulam Ahmad who was named Qamrul Anbiyaa (the moon of the prophets) by his father. He was born in 1893 and died on September 2, 1963, at the age of 71. He helped his brother through the latter’s period as head of the Qadiani Ahmadiyya. This help came in the form of managing properties in Qadian and writing books and essays in the jamaat periodicals that ultimately proved to be quite controversial. His role and his works are now greatly minimized by the Qadiani establishment. Very few Ahmadis know know much about him and his writings. The picture in the above is from the 1924 edition of the Moslem Sunrise. It should be noted that this book, Kalimatul Fasl was written in the Urdu-Review of Religions of 1915 and serialized into book form afterwards.
The second edition of Kalimatal Fasl was published again in 1941, per the below.

Introduction to Second Printing
I wrote this booklet, ‘Kalimatal Fasl’ during my student days when I was preparing for my M.A. examinations after having finished B.A. At the time, the discussion of Kufr and Islam was at a peak; and because at that time, the non-allegiance group of the Jama’at had freshly cut itself off from the Jama’at and the Headquarters of the Movement. It was quickly leaning towards the non-Ahmadis and there was a strong need to write this type of booklet and inform our straying brothers of this danger. This danger was before them but they had shut their eyes to it due to their anger and prejudice.
Now, after a long period of 26 years, this booklet is being printed again with the encouragement of fellow members. I have been requested to review it and to make necessary corrections and changes. A person’s knowledge and the expression of that knowledge can improve over time, therefore revision is not a bad idea – in fact it has many beneficial aspects, but I did not want to change the memory of my youth (when I was only 21 years old). With simple grammatical (or structural, only words, that is not a revision of the meaning) revision, the same booklet of a quarter century ago is being re-printed. However, the whole discussion . . . . (pages missing)

In short, it is the the continuing practice of Allah from time immemorial that after the appearance of an appointed person among an undivided people – who were coloured in the same colour under the order of ‘kufr is one nation’ (Quran) – He divides them into two parts. One part is that which responds to the call of Allah’s Messenger saying (Quranic verse Aal Imran last ruku) and enters the Jama’at of the Messenger and become the inheritors of those blessings that have been promised by Allah to believers. But, against them is another group which looks at the caller’s call with ridicule and goes after the destruction of the movement established by God. This group’s misfortune causes it to issue denial after denial and its curtain of ignorance does not let it benefit from Divine Light. Its sorrowful state prevents it from stepping towards God and his Prophet and eventually, its bad deeds make it reach the door of Hell.So, these are the two groups, like ‘one salt water and the other fresh’ (Quran) which automatically appear at the time of appearance of an appointed one. It is not possible that a Guide come from Allah into the world and then all people immediately believe in him, just as it is impossible that on the appearance of a Prophet there is no blessed soul that does not cry out ‘we are the helpers of Allah’ (Quran) in response to ‘who will help me for Allah’ (Quran) – because the appearance of Messengers is like rain which causes greenery to appear from the surface of the earth. That soil that has a dirty seed inside it and will generate a smelly tree. The soil under which is the seed of an excellent and fragrant flower, it is sure that after rain it will enrich the world with its hidden treasure. This is the way of Allah, ‘and you will not find the way of Allah changing’. (Quran)
For example, look at when the Noble Prophet (saw) challenged the idol-worshippers of Arabia, ‘O idol-worshippers, leave idol-worship and shirk and come under the flag of Divine Unity (Tauheed) and engage in the worship of the God who created the Earth and the Heavens and provided means for your comfort and success in the world’. On this call, one Abu Jahl stood up and started causing distress to that pure being – the being in which Divine Beauty and Magnificence had so mixed that about him Allah said, ‘those who pledge allegiance to you indeed pledge allegiance to Allah; Allah’s hand is on their hand’ (Quran). And then Allah blessed him with so much nearness that he said, ‘say, if you love Allah, follow me and and Allah will love you’. That is, ‘O Messenger’, say to the people that if there is any love for Allah in your hearts, then come behind me so that you become the beloved of Allah. However, despite all this, the denier denied him and one who says, said – God forbid, ‘he is a liar and madman, kill him or imprison him or exile him, etc.’ But, as there was such a group, another group of people was born about whom the Divine gave the judgement, ‘Allah is happy with them, and they are happy with Allah’ (Quran) – and who withstood all afflictions for the sake of Islam. They were turned out of their homes, separated from their wives and children, and had to move away from their relatives, loved ones and friends. They let their blood flow in the way of Allah like water, but never let go of the doorstep on which they had put their heads. The words of ‘laa ilaah . . . . rasoolullah’ were like a battery that had put an electric force in their veins and made them do things which were otherwise impossible. Could a forecaster have predicted that a spring was to erupt from the desert of Arab that would encompass the whole world within it? Could an astrologer’s knowledge intimate him that the ignorant Qureish of Mecca would become the teachers of the world and would reign over a major part of the world? The people of Arabia were strict followers of traditional
customs and there was so much conflict between the Arab tribes that no one had a clue that these people who are thirsty for each other’s blood and are always at each others’ throats, would one day come together under the flag of Islam and cover the whole world like a flood.
“With the coming of Promised Messiah one difference (in the meaning of Kalima) has occurred and that is that before the advent of Promised Messiah, in the meaning of ‘Mohammad ur Rasoolullah’ only prophets of bygone days were included, but with the advent of Promised Messiah, one more prophet has been added to the meaning of Mohammad ur Rasoolullah … thus to enter in Islam it is still the same Kalima, the only difference is that the advent of Promised Messiah has added one more prophet to its meaning…we don’t need a new Kalima, because Promised Messiah is nothing separate from Holy Prophet, as he says: ‘saara wujoodi wujoodahoo (my person became his person)’ and ‘he who differentiates between me and Mustafa has not seen me and not recognised me’ … thus Promised Messiah is Mohammad Rasoolullah himself who has come again in this world to spread Islam, therefore we do not need any new Kalima. Yes if someone else had come then we may have required it — thus think all of you.”

“In this case, can there remain any doubt that Allah sent Muhammad (peace be upon him) again to Qadian to fulfil His promise?”

“The Promised Messiah’s claim that he has been appointed by Allah and that Allah spoke to him is not free from two states..
…Either he is lying in his claim – God forbid – and only claimed this by way of lying against Allah. In this case, not only is he a kafir BUT A BIG KAFIR. Or [the other case is] he is true in his claim to inspiration and Allah really used to speak to him…
…In this case, THIS KUFR will fall on the deniers. Now you have a choice: Either consider the deniers of the Promised Messiah as Muslims and pass a fatwa of kufr on the Promised Messiah, or consider the Promised Messiah to be true and believe his deniers to be kafir..
…IT IS NOT POSSIBLE FOR YOU TO CONSIDER BOTH TO BE MUSLIMS. Because the verse is clearly saying if the claimant isn’t a kafir the denier is definitely a kafir. SO FOR GOD’S SAKE, LEAVE YOUR HYPOCRISY AND DECIDE SOMETHING IN YOUR HEARTS.”
Mirza Bashir Ahmad M.A goes onto explain that Mirza began to consider those who didn’t believe in him to be kafir later in life and that people shouldn’t use old statements of his when he didn’t consider those who denied him to be non-Muslims.
“IN ANY CASE, GOD HAS MADE IT CLEAR TO ME THAT EVERY PERSON TO WHOM MY MESSAGE HAS REACHED BUT DOES NOT ACCEPT ME, HE IS NOT A MUSLIM AND HE WILL BE TAKEN TO TASK BY GOD.”
He also says not calling them non-Muslims is a DIRTY BELIEF.
Kalimatul Fasl: pg 126-127,
“””Let nobody be deceived by the “Promised Messiah” referring to his opponents as Muslims. The reason he called them Muslim was because that’s what they are known by. What he meant was those who claim to be Muslim, otherwise he did not consider them Muslim.”””
Kalimatul Fasl, pg 129
“””So when this issue is very clear, namely that there is no salvation without believing in the Maseeh-e-Maud, why is an effort made to deem non-Ahmadi’s as Muslims, just for the sake of it?”””

“Thus, after this decision of the Promised Messiah, we do not give value equivalent to even a mosquito wing to the opinion of one who, after calling himself Ahmadi, considers non-Ahmadis Muslim.”
“…So when the Promised Messiah says that God does not consider those who reject him to be Muslim, who are we to reject what he said?”

“Thus, the Promised Messiah is Muhammad Rasulullah HIMSELF who came to earth a 2ND TIME to spread Islam”
