Intro
Dear readers, Ahmadi’s are engaged in “competitive-speech” and thus aren’t willing to listen to anything we ever say to them, they don’t even feel that they should have to go back and consider the sources when speaking. They are playing politics in this world of “freedom of speech”. They are similar to how Republicans deny climate change, and used to deny how cigarettes cause cancer. In terms of mutawafeeka, they made grammatical arguments and etc, however, when it comes to Khatim/Khatim, they forget about that entire line of argumentation and it collapses when using the same method for other quranic-arabic type of words. In the below, we have screen-shotted “Lisan-al-Arab” (published in 1873) and “Taj al-Arus of Al-Zabadi” (published under the Ottoman Empire, in the late 1700’s), these are both considered the top-2 arabic grammar dictionaries. Furthermore, the Lahori-Ahmadi’s, and specifically Muhammad Ali made these exact same arguments vs. the Qadianis back in the 1915-1925 era (see page 16-17).

According to the authoritative dictionary Lisan al-Arab of Ibn Manzur,

“””The khitām of a group of people, the khātim of them, or the khātam of them, is the last of them, according to al-Lihyani. And Muhammad is khātim of the prophets. At-Tahdhib (of al-Azhari): Khātim and khātam are among the names of the Prophet. And in the Qur’an: “Muhammad is not the father of any of your men, but he is the Messenger of Allah and khātim of the prophets,” that is, the last of them. And: It was also recited as khātam. And the saying of al-‘Ajjaj, “Blessed to the prophets is this khātim,” is based on the well-known recitation, with a kasrah (khātim). And also among his names is al-‘āqib, and its meaning is “last of the prophets.”
Ibn Manẓūr (1883) [Written 1290]. لسان العرب / Lisān al-‘Arab (in Arabic). 15. Būlāq, Miṣr [Bulaq, Egypt]: al-Maṭba‘ah al-Mīrīyah. p. 55. وخِتامُ القَوْم وخاتِمُهُم وخاتَمُهُم آخرُهم عن اللحياني ومحمد صلى الله عليه وسلم خاتِم الأنبياء عليه وعليهم الصلاة والسلام التهذيب والخاتِم والخاتَم من أسماء النبي صلى الله عليه وسلم وفي التنزيل العزيز ما كان محمد أبا أحد من رجالكم ولكن رسول الله وخاتِمَ النبيين أي آخرهم قال وقد قرئ وخاتَمَ وقول العجاج مُبارَكٍ للأنبياء خاتِمِ إنما حمله على القراءة المشهورة فكسر ومن أسمائه العاقب أيضا ومعناه آخر الأنبيا
