“Haqiqat Un Nubuwwat” (1915) by Mirza Basheer-uddin Mahmud Ahmad, some quotes and data

After become the Khalifa in 1914, Mirza Basheer-uddin Mahmud Ahmad faced the difficulty of explaining he true beliefs of MGA. One of the first few topics that he tackled was that of the nature of prophethood of MGA. The Lahori-Ahmadi’s totally denied prophethood for MGA and only gave it a metaphorical color. As soon as Khwaja Kamaluddin returned from England (November of 1914) he gave a speech which was turned into the an urdu-only book, “Ikhtalayfaat-e-Silsilaa-e-Ahmadiyya kay Usbaab”. Khwaja Kamaluddin’s quotes “Tuhfatul-Muluk” (A Present to Kings) by the Khalifa, Mirza Basheer ud Din Mahmud Ahmad which seems to have been written in the summer of 1914. This book was published on Dec 24th, 1914, during the Qadiani Jalsa. It was the first ever book about the split in the Ahmadiyya Movement, in it, Kwaja Kamaluddin emphatically died the prophethood of MGA and takfir against non-Ahmadi’s.

Was there a Mubahila between Muhammad (Saw) and Abu Jahl? MGA says so

MGA was a raging lunatic, he wanted anyone who opposed him to die. He even prayed for the plague to come to India and kill everyone who rejected Ahmadiyya. In 1891, he introduced the concept of Mubahila to any Muslim or Non-Muslim who wished to compete. However, this is not an islamic method of solving any type of dispute. MGA even went as far as claiming that Muhammad (saw) had a Mubahila with the famous Abu Jahl. However, this isn’t technically correct, Muhammad (saw) had prayed that Allah caused Abu Jahl to die while he was in the Kaaba and before hijra. This was not a Mubahila. Abu Jahl was killed a few years later during the Battle of Badr.

“Khutbah Ilhamia” quotes, the revealed Sermon, April 11th, 1901

Khutbah Ilhamia is a total cover-up job by Ahmadiyya sources. Its first edition seems to have been published on August 25, 1901, the second edition October 17, 1902, it appears during the
intervening period, four more chapters and some flyers were added during the period of May 1900 to October 1902, and then it appeared in the final shape in October 1902 (see hidden Treasures, pages 269-273). The Lahori-Ahmadi’s published an abridged version of an english translation in 2003. Watch Ak Shaikh and Akber C’s video analysis here. In 1907, in “Haqiqatul wahy” (see page 457 of the english edition), MGA calls this sermon as sign #165 of his truth.  In 1907, MGA was claiming that his speech (Khutbah Ilhamia) was intimated to him on the morning of Eid, however, the full story will prove that MGA and his team planned this weeks in advance. Furthermore, MGA was feuding with Pir Mehr Ali Shah in this time frame, Pir Mehr Ali Shah claimed that MGA couldn’t speak/read/write proper Arabic and had challenged MGA to a speaking contest in Arabic in Lahore.  However, MGA never came to the venue.  In the meantime, MGA’s team concocted this story in an attempt to prove that MGA could give speeches in Arabic and much more.

It was Eid of April 11th, 1900, Noorudin led the Eid service and gave the speech, MGA then got up from a sitting position and spoke for about 20 minutes. MGA delivered an untelligible rant, this was converted into “Khutbah Ilhamia”, and published later by Ahmadiyya sources.  Nevertheless, we have some references and source material in the below. MGA was known to claim these crazy things, in 1890, he claimed that Qadian was also mentioned in the Quran.  Later on in 1907, in Haqiqatul Wahy, on pages 457-458, MGA mentions the Khutbah Ilhamiya.  However, in this book it is mentioned that Khutbah Ilhamiya happened in 1900, not 1901, whereas all Ahmadi sources have always written 1901 (see Dard, page 722).

Some statements by witnesses, via

Syed Mahmood Alam states:

“Hazrat Maulvi Nuruddin Sahibra used to say that the Promised Messiahas delivered the Eid-ul-Adha sermon in Arabic, [which is stated at the beginning of the book, Khutba Ilhamiyah]. Later, he was asked as to what he experienced; he said, ‘The angels brought plaques having words written on them in bold letters. I would see and read them out. A plaque would appear and disappear after I had finish narrating it. Then, the next plaque would appear and so the series of plaques continued. When the scriber would ask [about a word], the disappeared plaque would come back and I would tell him after seeing it.” (Register Riwayat [unpublished], Reg. 4, p. 38, Riwayat Hazrat Syed Mahmood Alam Sahibra)

Maulvi Sher Ali said:

“My brother, Hafiz Abdul Ali Sahib, asked Hazrat [Hakim] Maulvi [Nuruddin] Sahibra about this [revealed sermon]. Maulvi Sahibra replied, ‘I know that it is beyond the power of the Promised Messiahas.’ His answer meant that it was the word of God and not of the Promised Messiahas.” (Register Riwayat [unpublished], Reg. 10, pp. 303-304, Hazrat Maulvi Sher Ali Sahibra)

Maulvi Abdullah writes:

“Syed Abdul Hayy Arab Sahibra, who came from Arabia and stayed in Qadian for many days for the purpose of research and later took Bai‘at of the Promised Messiahas, described the incident of his Bai‘at to this humble one.

“He said, ‘After reading the expressive and eloquent books of the Promised Messiahas, I was convinced in my heart that no one can write such words without the support of God. However, I was not certain that those works were of the Promised Messiahas, even though Hazrat Maulvi Nuruddin Sahib and other scholars used to assure me of this and testify … I continued to stay in Qadian to examine this matter, so that I too could see for myself any incident of divine succour. Thus, the time of the revelation of Khutba Ilhamiyah came and I witnessed with my own eyes the revelation of this prophetic and miraculous sermon. I heard with my own ears that without the help of any other person, this man was delivering such a powerful and moving sermon before the entire gathering in broad daylight. Hence, after listening to this sermon, I took Bai‘at with full conviction of heart.’” (Ashab-e-Ahmad, Vol. 7, p. 188)

Munshi Zafar Ahmad of Kapurthala, narrates:

“The Promised Messiahas stood in Masjid Aqsa on the day of Eid-ul-Adha and said, ‘I would like to present a few words of revelation in Arabic as a sermon. Both Maulvi Nuruddin Sahib and Maulvi Abdul Karim Sahib should write the words down with perfect accuracy.’ Thereafter, he began to deliver the sermon in Arabic. He was saying words so quickly that it was becoming difficult for the [scribes’] pen to maintain a pace with what was being uttered. We witnessed the special effect of this sermon that all the listeners were in a state of charisma and the sermon was being understood. Every single person was influenced by it.” (Siratul-Mahdi, Vol. 2, pp. 117-118)

MGA claimed that Muhammad (Saw) visited Qadian

In a footnote, MGA quotes the quran (17:1), this is wherein Allah tells us how he carried Muhammad (Saw) on the night journey from Masjid Haram (In Mecca) to Masjid Aqsa (In jerusalem). In fact, in the 5-volume commentary of the Quran by Ahmadi’s, they have also written there that ‘Masjid Aqsa”, may also refer to MGA’s Masjid Aqsa in Qadian (see page 1404), which was built by MGA’s father in 1876, just before he died.
Khutbah Ilhamiyyah, Ruhani Khaza’in, vol. 16, p. 31-73, via the 2018 online english edition of Tadhkirah

“”””Translation: [Arabic] O servants of Allah, ponder and reflect on this day of yours, which is the day of the Festival of Sacrifices, for verily hidden secrets have been placed in these sacrifices for those who are wise. All of you know that many animals are slaughtered on this day—many caravans of camels, herds of cattle, and flocks of goats are slaughtered—and all this is done in seeking the pleasure of the Lord of the universe. Such has been the practice ever since the inception of Islam and continues even in these days. In my opinion, these sacrifices that are made in our illustrious Shariah are beyond the realm of estimation, and they are far superior to the sacrifices made by those belonging to the earlier nations of prophets. The abundance of these sacrifices has reached a point that the face of the earth has been covered with their blood; so much so that if all of it were to be amassed and irrigated, streams would flow out and rivers would gush forth with it and all of the plains and valleys of the earth would be inundated with blood. In our religion, this deed is counted among those that are a means of attaining qurb [nearness] to Allah the Most Holy. They have been taken to resemble a mount that is like a flash of lightening in its speed and resplendence. It is for this very reason that these slaughtered animals have been given the name qurban because it is mentioned in the ahadith that they are a means of acquiring qurb [nearness] and communion with God Almighty for all those who offer these sacrifices with sincerity, devotion, and faithfulness. These sacrifices are among the most exalted acts of worship in the Shariah. Hence, the sacrificial animal is called nasikah. In the Arabic language, the word nusuk denotes submission and worship. Similarly, the word nusuk is also used in the aforementioned language to refer to the sacrifice of those animals whose slaughter has been enjoined by the Shariah. So this commonality of meanings in the word nusuk points out conclusively that a true worshipper and sincere servant is he who “slaughters” his self along with all his faculties, and all of the beloveds who have enamoured him, for the pleasure of the Lord of all creation. Such a one repels his selfish desires with a force that causes them to be totally shattered and annihilated. He himself becomes consumed with no trace left of his self and becomes hidden. The fierce winds of fana [self-annihilation] blow upon him and the particles of his very being are blown away by the strong gusts of these winds. And anyone who reflects upon the commonality of the two meanings of the word nusuk, and ponders over this station with an awakened heart and open eyes, will not fail to realize, and will not dispute that this commonality in the meanings of nusuk reveals the secret that the worship which delivers one from a loss of the Hereafter is the slaughter of nafs-e-ammarah which is the self that fervently incites towards evil in the likeness of a ruler who constantly enjoins evil. Thus, salvation lies in the fact that one slays the self that enjoins evil by the knives of turning exclusively towards Allah, the possessor of bounties, power and authority; and by
considering God Almighty—to the exclusion of all creation—as being an intimate friend and
the comfort of one’s soul. Moreover, one must endure diverse forms of bitter hardships to
save one’s self from the death of heedlessness. This is the meaning of Islam and the true
import of perfect submission. A Muslim is one who submits himself to slaughter before Allah,
the Lord of all the worlds, and who, for His sake, has slaughtered the she-camel of his self
and has thrown it down on its forehead; and is never oblivious, even for a moment, of the time
of death. In short, the slaughters and sacrifices that are ordained in Islam are a reminder of
the objective of giving oneself freely. They are also an incentive for achieving this station, and
a forerunner of the reality to be attained after perfect enlightenment. Thus, it is incumbent upon every believing man and woman who seek the pleasure of the Loving God to understand this reality, so as to make it as their ultimate objective, and to imbue this reality in to their own being until it permeates every particle of their existence. They should not rest or sit at ease until they have offered this sacrifice for the Lord whom they worship, and not be content, like the foolish and ignorant, with the outer form and hollow shell. Rather, one ought to offer true sacrifice, and carry it out with all their intellect, and with a spirit of righteousness and the spirit of sacrifice. This is the height of the pilgrim’s journey, the ultimate objective of those seeking enlightenment, and the culmination of all the stations of the righteous. All the destinations of the truthful and the saints are arrived at, and the journey of the auliya’ reaches its height zenith. If you arrive at
this station, you have taken your struggle to its ultimate limit and have achieved the stage of
fana. It is then that the tree of your sojourn [towards God] will thereby grow to its utmost
perfection; and the neck of your soul will reach the soft green buds in the meadow of purity
and sublimity like a she-camel with a long neck reaching the high branches of a verdant tree.
Thereafter begins the experience of the feelings, the fragrance, and the glorious manifestations
of the One True God, so that He may cut asunder any remaining veins of human frailties. Thereafter, the soul that is content and pleased with God and whom God is pleased
with, and which has achieved the stage of fana, is granted life, permanence and nearness, so
that this servant may be equipped with the capacity to receive favours after his second life.
After this, the perfect man is adorned with the robe of khilafat by the One True God. He is
conferred the colour of divine attributes by way of reflection so that it is proven that he is
worthy of the station of khilafat [i.e., vicegerency]. Then, he descends towards humanity so that he may draw them to spirituality and bring them out of mundane darkness into the heavenly light. Such a man is made to inherit from those that have preceded him from among the Prophets, the Truthful, the men of learning and scholarship, and from the suns of divine nearness and friendship. He is granted the knowledge and insight of those who have preceded him among the learned divines and the wise scholars of the nation, so that it may be proven that he is worthy of the station of warathat [i.e., spiritual inheritance]. Such a man stays in the world for as long as it is ordained by his Lord of honour to enlighten humanity with the light of guidance. After he has illumined the people with the light of his Lord, or has taken the matter of delivering the message to its due level, [the purpose of] his titles is fulfilled and his Lord calls upon him and his soul is raised to its spiritual station. This is the meaning of rafa‘ [i.e., raising]
according to those who possess knowledge and understanding. Marfu‘ [i.e., one who is raised]
is he who is granted a draught of communion by the hand of the True Beloved who is the ocean of beauty and grace. He is draped in the mantle of divine providence, even though he permanently retains his station of servitude. This is the ultimate station that a seeker after
truth attains in human life. O company of people, do not be oblivious to this station, nor
to the secret that is found in sacrifices. Let your sacrifices be like mirrors that reflect this
reality. Do not disregard these advices, nor be like those who have forgotten their Lord and
their death. A reference to this hidden secret has been made in the Word of our All-Sustaining Lord. The Most Truthful among the truthful says whilst addressing His Prophet: [Say, ‘My prayer and my sacrifice and my life and my death are all for Allah, the Lord of the worlds.’] See how He has elaborated the meanings of the word nusuk by the words mahya [i.e, life] and mamat [i.e., death]. By this elaboration, He has thereby pointed towards the reality of sacrifice. O wise ones, reflect upon this. Whoever offers his sacrifice with a true understanding of the meaning of sacrifice, and does so with a sincere heart and pure intention, has verily thereby offered the sacrifice of his self, his children and his grandchildren. And for him is a great reward, like the reward which was for Ibrahim [Abraham], from his Benevolent Lord. Our Master, the Chosen One, the Messenger Elect, the Imam of the Righteous, and the Seal of the Prophets who is
the most truthful after Allah, has stated that: Verily sacrifices are mounts that lead you towards the Lord of Creation; and erase faults and ward off afflictions. This is what has been conveyed to us by the Messenger of God, the best of creation, peace and magnificent bounties of Allah be upon him. In this, he indicates the wisdom of sacrifices in eloquent words that shine like pearls. It is immensely pitiful that many people do not understand these hidden subtleties and do not follow this advice. To them there is no meaning in ‘Id other than to bathe, wear new clothes, gorge themselves and devour mouthfuls of food in the company of their families, servants, and
household workers; and then to proceed forth for the ‘Id prayer adorned like feudal lords. You will find that their greatest joy on this day is to eat sumptuous food, and the height of their
desire lies in fine and splendid garments as a display to the people. They know not what sacrifice is, nor the purpose behind the slaughter of goats and cattle. According to them, the purpose of ‘Id is nothing but to eat, drink, and engage in sheer enjoyment from dawn till dusk; to wear elegant dress, ride swift horses, and consume fresh meat. On this day you will find that their preoccupation is nothing more than to wear fine attire, comb their hair, apply collyrium to their eyes, perfume their clothing, style their dangling forelocks and sidelocks as women do for
adornment. Thereafter they repeat quick movements in their prayer in the likeness of a hen that pecks at grain—completely devoid of focus, abounding in stray thoughts and prey to a distracted heart. Thereafter, they attend to the consumption of a variety of foods and victuals, and fill their bellies with all types of blessings like the cattle. They are inclined towards sport and pastime and towards useless diversions. They leave their selves free to graze in the pastures of lust. They ride horses, carriages, camels and she-camels, mules, and the necks of men. All the while they are fully decorated. They waste the entire day in frivolous talk, giving gifts of meat to each other and displaying their pride in the meat of their cows and goats. This is accompanied by enjoyment, diverse forms of celebrations, attractions to please the self, acts of transgression, laughing with open mouths displaying both their front and back teeth, and
thronging towards the dancing of loose women, kissing and embracing them, and after that
[reaching for] their girdles. We say inna lillah [surely, to Allah we belong] on account of the plights that have descended upon Islam, and the vicissitude of the times. Hearts have
died, and sins have become rampant while grief has intensified. Thus in the black of night, and
in the darkness of the stormy winds, the mercy of Allah demanded the descent of heavenly
light (see Footnote).

Where it is stated in the ahadith that the Promised Messiah will descend, the word nuzul [descent] has been used to indicate that this age will be such that darkness would have swallowed the entire world, while honesty, trust, and truthfulness would have bid it farewell. The
earth would be filled with injustice and tyranny. It was to be then that God would send down a light from the heavens and would thereby illumine the world once again. It was to descend from above, because light always descends from on high. The time of the Promised Messiah is said to be one in which all means for the propagation of Islam would have been out of reach and Muslims would be left totally powerless. This will happen because the jealousy of God wills to remove, refute and eradicate the objection that has been raised against Islam suggesting that it was spread by the sword. Therefore, it is ordained that during the time of the Promised Messiah swords be sheathed and no one take up the sword for the sake of religion. If anyone does so, they would be defeated and suffer humiliating defeat by the disbelievers. The hosts of Hadrat Musa, who had been banished from Egypt continuously suffered defeat in the battles in which they marched forward against the command of Musa. So too will it happen now, for
the descent of the Promised Messiah from the heaven is an indication that his hand will not utilise worldly means. Rather, he will irrigate the garden of Islam with heavenly water, because now God desires to manifest the miracle that Islam does not depend upon the sword and worldly means for its propagation. Thus, anyone who despite this clear prohibition, and in view of the hadith containing the words [he will put an end to warfare], raises the sword and seeks to be a warrior, would essentially cast doubt upon this miracle. It is God Almighty who has willed to manifest this miracle, namely, to make Islam victorious and loved by the people, without the use of material means.

So, I am that light and the reformer who has come by the command of God Almighty, the servant [of Allah] who enjoys support. I am the awaited Mahdi and the Promised Messiah. I have been appointed by my Lord to a station that no man fathoms. My secret is above and beyond the ken of most men of Allah, let alone the common folk. My station is beyond the grasp of those who delve deep in understanding, nor can the height of my ascension be perceived by those who judge. My gait in the sojourn towards Allah is faster than the swiftest she-camels. Therefore, do not judge me by comparing me to others; nor compare others to me. Do not destroy yourselves with suspicion and antagonism. I am the kernel that has no shell. I am the soul that has no body. I am the sun that cannot be concealed with the smoke of enmity and malice. You may search for someone like unto me, but you will surely fail, even if you search carrying a lamp in hand. But this is no pride, it is gratitude for the favours of the God who has planted this seedling. I have been cleansed with the water of divine light and have been purified in the fountain of divine holiness, and have been purged of all filth and impurities, and my Lord has named me Ahmad. So, praise me and do not abuse me and do not take your affair to the brink of hopelessness. Anyone who praises me and leaves no kind of praise unmentioned, has spoken the truth, and has abstained from uttering falsehood. Whoever rejects this statement, speaks falsehood and kindles the wrath of the Gracious God. Woe upon him who doubts, and breaks the covenant, and pollutes his heart with the whisperings of Satan. I have descended from a lofty and honoured station so that my Lord may demonstrate some of His attributes of glory and beauty through me—that is, to remove evil and spread goodness. For
the age demanded that the evil, which had exceeded all bounds, be eradicated, and the virtue which had vanished, be re-established. Therefore, the grace of God willed that the present age be granted what it demanded in light of its prevailing circumstances, and so that mercy may be bestowed upon men and women. Therefore, I was made a reflection of the Messiah, Jesus son of Mary, so that God may remove the elements of harm and misguidance. And He made me the reflection of the most honoured Prophet, Ahmad, the Guided One, to benefit the people and to shower down, once again, the rain of understanding and guidance, and to purify the people from the filth of heedlessness and sin. Thus, I have come with two yellow robes that are coloured with the hues of glory and beauty. And I have been conferred the qualities of causing to die and bringing to life—and I have received these qualities from the Lord who is the Doer of what He wills. But the grandeur that I have been granted by Allah the Possessor of Glory (see footnote).

I have repeatedly affirmed that I have not come with swords and spears. Rather, I have come with signs, divine power, and eloquence of speech. Thus, my grandeur is heavenly and does not consist of armed forces and helpers.

is a result of the reflection of ‘Isa [that manifests itself in me], so that I may put an end to the evil of polytheism which surges forth and is present in the doctrines of the misguided and which has been kindled with utmost fury; for it is the greatest of all calamities in the sight of Allah who is the Knower of all circumstances; and so that I may raze the pillars of falsehood that they have erected in opposition to Allah. The beauty that I have been granted by Allah the
Benevolent and Gracious is a result of the reflection of Ahmad so that I may bring back
the virtue of Tauhid [i.e., the Oneness of God] which has vanished from the tongues, hearts,
words, and deeds of people, and thereby establish the religious order. I have been
commanded to slay (See footnote)

This expression is used in a hadith appearing in Bukhari and the meaning of “slay” here is the completion of proof and the eradication of falsehood with convincing arguments and heavenly signs, and not literal slaughter. 

the swine of disorder, heresy and misguidance which trample underfoot the pearls of truthfulness, destroy the harvests of people, and wreak havoc in the fields of faith, purity, and deeds. This slaying is to be with heavenly weaponry, not with swords and arrows, as is the belief of those who are devoid of rectitude and truthful speech. They are themselves misguided and have misled many others from among the ignorant. It is true that I have been forbidden from fighting the disbelievers. It was ordained even before my existence that I would abolish warfare and would have no inclination towards bloodshed. Thus, there remains no jihad, except the jihad of the tongue, and the jihad of signs and argumentation. Similarly, I have been commanded to fill the houses and pouches of the Muslims with wealth—but not with the wealth of gold and silver; rather, with the wealth of knowledge, rectitude, guidance, and certainty of the highest degree— so that faith may be made firmer than the mountains and glad tidings be given to those who are buried under burdens. Therefore, glad tidings be to you that the Messiah has come, and he has been anointed by the All-Powerful God, and has been granted eloquent speech by Him. He safeguards you from the caravan that travels the earth to deceive people, and he calls you towards Allah and removes all doubts. So felicitations to you that the awaited Mahdi has come to you with an abundance of wealth piled in hoards. He strives to restore to you the wealth that you had lost; and to return from the grave your prosperity that had been buried alive. It is not a thing that has been forged, but it is the light of Allah which is accompanied by extraordinary signs. O people, I am the Messiah of the dispensation of Muhammad and I am Ahmad, the Mahdi [i.e., the Guided One]. Verily, my Lord has remained with me since my childhood and shall stand by me until I reach my grave. I have been granted a fire which devours and water that is sweet. I am the Yemeni Star and a heavenly rain. Infliction of a wound by me is a sharp spear, and my supplication is a proven remedy. I manifest my glory to one people and my beauty to another. I hold a weapon in one hand with which I destroy the practices of cruelty and sin. In my other hand, I possess an elixir by which I restore life to the hearts—an axe to destroy and a breath to revive. I possess glory, because, like the son of Mary, people have tried to uproot me. And, I possess beauty because, just like my Master, Ahmad, my mercy surges forth to guide the people who have become heedless of the Lord who is the Most High. Are you, then, surprised at this, and do you ignore the time and its need? Do you not see that the present age yearns for the Lord, who is the Doer of what He wills, to manifest the attribute of His Glory to one people and the attribute of His Beauty to another. Verily, signs have appeared, [prophesied] indications have been manifested, and all disputes have been resolved. So why do you not see? The solar and lunar eclipses took place in the month of Ramadan, but you fail to recognise. Some from among the people have died in accordance with the tidings of Allah while others, in light of prophecies of death, were killed, but you do not reflect. Many a sign has been manifested in my support, but you pay no heed. The earth, the heaven, water and
dust have testified in my favour, but you do not fear in the least. Intellect, tradition, indications
and signs, as well as other testimonies, dreams and visions also stand in support, but you remain in denial. These signs carry a magnificent import for those who reflect. The Dhus-Sinin [i.e., comet] has appeared, and nearly a fifth of the century has elapsed. So, tell me where the mujaddid [i.e., the rejuvenator] is, if you know. The plague has broken out, the Hajj has been stopped, deaths have multiplied, nations have gone to war over gold mines, the cross has been raised, and Islam has shifted away from its true position and has disappeared like a wayfarer. Wickedness and the wicked have increased manifold, people have become enamoured with wine, gambling, and dancing; evildoers and tyrants have appeared. The righteous have shrunk in number and the time for the manifestation of our Lord has arrived, and all that the Prophets
had foretold has come to pass. So what will you believe in after this? O people, stand firm
altogether or individually for the sake of Allah; fear Him and reflect like such a one who is
consumed with neither greed nor enmity. Is this not the time when Allah should have mercy on men? Is it not time that evil be repelled and the thirst of the hearts be quenched by rain? Has
not the deluge of evil reached its height? Has ignorance not cast its net in all corners? All the
land has been corrupted and Satan has thanked the ignorant. So, be thankful to Allah who has
remembered you and remembered your Faith and safeguarded it from ruin. He safeguarded
the seeds that you had sown and the crops that you cultivated from catastrophe and sent down
rain and thus brought His investment to fruition. He sent His Messiah to ward off harm and His Mahdi to foster goodness and bestow reward, and caused you to join the age of your Imam after the age of the others had gone by. Brethren! This age of ours bears a perfect resemblance with this month of ours, because this is the last age and this is also the last month in the Islamic calendar, and both are about to end. There are sacrifices to be made in this month and also there are sacrifices to be made in this last age. The difference is only of the actual and its mirror image. An example of this has appeared earlier in the age of the Best of Creation, peace and blessings of Allah be upon him. O men of understanding! The real sacrifice is that of the spirit. The sacrifices of goats are metaphoric and symbolic. So understand the secret of this truth. After the Companions of the Holy Prophet, may Allah be pleased with them, you are the most deserving and most worthy of understanding this truth. You are the last people that has been joined with them by the grace and mercy of Allah. The succession of the dispensations has come to its culmination in our age by the One True God just as the months of the Islamic calendar come to an end with the month of sacrifice. In this, there is a hidden indication for those who possess good judgment. I have been appointed at the highest station of wilayat just as our Chief, the Holy Prophet, peace and blessings of Allah be upon him, was at the highest station of nubuwwat. He was the Seal of the Prophets and I am the Seal of the Auliya’. There is no wali after me except the one who is from me and is under my covenant. I have been sent by my Lord with every power, blessing, and honour. I stand on a minaret where all heights culminate. So fear Allah, O stalwarts. Recognise me and do not disobey me; nor die in a state of
disobedience. The age is near when every soul shall be called to account for its deeds and be
recompensed. There are many calamities and nothing can deliver you except faith. The errors
[of man] are colossal and nothing can eradicate them except for self-annihilation. O my helpers,
fear the chastisement of Allah; and for him who fears his Lord are two heavens. So do not sit
among the heedless and with those who have forgotten death. Hasten towards Allah and ride
swift steeds and abandon lame horses, so that you may meet the Lord of Creation. Adopt the
habit of severing ties for Allah so that you may be granted His communion and nearness.
Break away from material means so that means may be devised for you. Die, dear ones, so that
you may be granted a new life. This day, the argument is complete against the opponents
and all the excuses of those who plea have been shattered. Those people who spread misguidance and whisper evil have lost all hope in you. They wasted their lives in worldly
pursuits and did not gain aught of faith. Indeed, they are like the blind. So this day Allah has broken their backs and they have turned away disappointed. This day, the truth has become clearly manifest to those who can see and the path of the guilty has become evident. Only such a one has turned away from the truth who is deprived by his eternal misfortune, and only he alone has rejected it who is deprived by his cruel nature. So we bid farewell to them with greetings of peace. The argument has been perfected against them and their being worthy of punishment has been established. If even now they do not desist, patience is called for, and soon, He who is aware of their circumstances will take them to task.””””

“and the battle will be fierce (between the dajjal and the messiah), and the war will be dragged to forty years from the day of the appearance of the messiah until the prayers of the messiah are heard for his righteousness and sincerity, and when the messiah wins; then, all the wars will be over, which were going on between the Rahmaniyah soldiers and the Satanic soldiers. Then, will be the end of the role of this world, and the human instinct returns to its first form”.

Khutba-Ilhamia, Roohany Khazaen, Vol. 16, P. 20

“”At the time of this revelation, as i mentioned many times before, I was told in a state of a vision, that this relevation is written in the holy quran. And at that time in the vision I had this in my heart that three cities are mentioned in the quran: Makkah, Madinah and Qadian. This was about 20 years ago.“”


  • “The verse of Quran: ‘Praise be to Allah, who took his servant on the Night Journey from Masjid Haram to Masjid Aqsa‘, in true and literal sense, (Masjid Aqsa) is referring to the mosque of the Promised Messiah (in Qadian and not Jerusalem).”
    (Khutba-Ilhamia, Roohany Khazaen, Vol. 16, P. 21;
    Collection of Posters, Vol. 3, P. 286;
    Collection of donations for Minaret-ul-Maseeh 10 years after claiming to be Maseeh)

——-“The Prophet (pbuh) went from Masjid-e-Haram to Mashid-e-Aqsa in his Miraj (ascension to heaven) – the Masjid-e-Aqsa mentioned there is the very mosque in Qadian on the Eastern side, the extreme side of Qadian.  God’s word names this place mubarak (the blessed).”
(Khutba-Ilhamia, Roohany Khazaen, Vol. 16, P. 22)


“At the time of this revelation, as I have written many times, through a state of vision I also got to know that this revelation is written in the Holy Qur’an and at the time, in the state of vision, I had the certain belief in my heart that in the Holy Quran there is the mention of three cities, i.e. Mecca and Medina and Qadian. It has been nearly 20 years since I wrote it in Braheen e Ahmadiyya. Now at the time of writing this magazine, it was made clear to me that whatever I wrote as a vision in Braheen e Ahmadiyya about Qadian, i.e. that it’s mention is in the Holy Quran, is correct in reality because it is a certain fact that the verse of the Holy Qur’an Chapter 17, verse 2:- “Glory be to him Who carried His servant by night from the sacred mosque to the divine mosque, the environs of which we have blessed” comprises of both the spatial and the temporal miraj and without this the miraj remains incomplete/flawed. Thus as according to the spatial journey, God Most High took the Holy Prophet may peace be upon him from the Sacred Mosque to the Baitul Muqaddas, similarly in accord with the temporal journey, his holiness was taken from the era of the magnificence (shaukat) of Islam, which was the time of the Holy Prophet may peace and blessings of Allah be upon him, to the era of the blessings (barakaat) of Islam, which is the time of the Promised Messiah.  Therefore, in keeping with the aspect that the visionary (kashfi) journey of the Holy Prophet may peace and blessings of Allah be upon him extends to the final era of Islam, Masjid-e- Aqsa means the mosque of the Promised Messiah which is situated in Qadian, relating to which in Braheen e Ahmadiyya, Allah says:


  ومبرک وکل امر مبرک یجعل فیہ مبرک


and this word ‘mubarak’ which has occurred in the objective (accusative) and the subjective case is in accord with the verse بَارَكْنَا حَوْلَه  of the Holy Qur’an. Therefore, there is no doubt that Qadian is mentioned in the Holy Qur’an as Allah Most High says:Glory be to Him Who carried His servant by night from the Sacred Mosque to the Divine Mosque, the environs of which We have blessed (Khutbah Ilhamiyyah, Roohani Khazain Vol 16, pg 20-21. Footnote)

“”””Our Prophet, the blessings of Allaah and peace be on him, was the Aadam of the end [that is, the Aadam of the last era or period] of the world and the apex of the days of the period [that is, the apex of his own era]. And His Holiness was made to be born in the manner of Aadam. After all kinds of insects and animals and beasts had been born on the earth. … That is, every host [or group] of debauched people and ‘kaafirs’ [disbelievers] and materialistic people was created and, in heaven, [God] brought into existence stars and moons and suns, that is, made manifest the souls of the pure, which were prepared [ready for the Divine]. After this [He] clothed that Aadam in the dress of existence whose name is Muhammad and Ahmad, the blessings of Allaah and peace be on him and he is the chief of the progeny of Aadam and the Imaam [leader] of the people and the most righteous and auspicious of all.”””
RK, v. 16, pp. 261-263

“””… Hence, there is no doubt that His Holiness [Muhammad], the blessings of Allaah and peace be on him, is the Aadam of the last era and the ‘ummat’ [nation or followers] of this praised Prophet is in lieu of [his] progeny. … And the era of spirituality of our Prophet started at the fifth millennium and was perfected at the end of sixth millennium and [the following] statement from God Almighty indicates this: ‘li yuzhirahu `aladdeen’ [that He may cause it to prevail over all religion] [a portion of the verse Quraan 61:10]. And the detail of this position is that our Prophet, the blessings of Allaah and peace be on him, came on the footstep [i.e., in the pattern] of Aadam. And Aadam’s spirituality emerged on the fifth day [although he was not yet born] because by that day whatever was of the elements of his substance and the reality of his essence had been created. Because the earth with all its creation and the sky [or heaven] with all its artifacts is the reality of Aadam’s essence.”””
RK, v. 16, pp. 264-267

“”This secret [or mystery] should, in other words, be understood as [follows]: Man at one [point in] time was mineral and at the next time, plants [or sugar] and after this animals and after that [he] was [the] star[s] and the moon and the sun until, on the fifth day, all that which his nature [i.e., the nature of Man] had required from the earthly and heavenly powers [or forces] was collected by the Grace of God, the Best of Creators. Hence, all creation was a perfect individual for Aadam or [it] was a mirror of his existence which was made honored and venerable. Then [He] willed that the hiddenness be made to appear completely in one person who is a manifestation of these characteristics [or essences]. Hence, Aadam’s spirituality, with a comprehensive, complete radiance, radiated forth on the day of Friday in the last hour, that is, on that day which is the sixth day. Similarly, the spirituality of our Prophet, the blessings of Allaah and peace be on him, appeared with abridged characteristics [‘ijmaalee sifaat’] in the fifth millennium and that era was not the apex of the developments of that spirituality but rather was the first step for the acme of its excellencies. Then that spirituality radiated in a complete manner at the end of the sixth millennium that is, at this time [i.e., now], just as Aadam was born at the end of the sixth day by the command of God, the Best of Creators, and the spirituality of the ‘Khayr-ur-Rusul’ [the Best of the Messengers, i.e., Muhammad], for the culmination of its appearance and for the prevalence of its radiance, adopted a manifestation, as God Almighty had promised in the Clear Book [the Quraan], so I am that manifestation.””

Eclipses during Ramadan by David L. McNaughton (1996)

Ahmadi’s went around the world and bragged about the 2 eclipses that were shown for MGA from 1894–1996.  Finally, an independent researcher (David McNaughton) came along and destroyed the Ahmadiyya position.  The Muslims of India and the World never touched this topic in Ahmadiyya, however, after 1996, the cat was out of the bag.

The academic essay

Eclipses during Ramadan

by David L. McNaughton

In “Hamdard Islamicus” (Karachi, Pakistan), vol. XIX no. 1 (Spring 1996): pp. 81-86.

Characteristics of Solar Eclipses

The sight of a total eclipse of the sun is an awe-inspiring experience. Daylight quickly becomes near-darkness, and all birdsong ceases as those creatures are deceived into thinking that night has fallen.

However, only a small area of the globe enjoys the privilege of admiring the total phase of such an eclipse whenever one sweeps across our planet. Even so, astronomers can now predict accurately those places and their times – enabling many of them to go and witness such an event. Total solar eclipses provide by far the best opportunity to study the seething atmosphere in the sun’s outer atmosphere, so scientists are always present to take photographs and carry out spectrographic and other measurements.

A solar eclipse can occur only at New Moon, but not every New Moon produces a solar eclipse. That is because the plane containing the lunar orbit is inclined to the plane defined by Earth’s much larger orbit round the sun (called the “ecliptic” plane). Thus, at the instant of its birth a New Moon’s position in the celestial firmament is usually either above or below the sun: under those circumstances the sun cannot become eclipsed.

About twice every year, however, New Moon happens to take place just as the moon is passing through the ecliptic plane. That produces almost perfect alignment of the three celestial bodies, enabling the moon to hide the sun from some terrestrial observers. The moon’s umbra (full shadow) traces out a comparatively narrow path across Earth’s surface; people there see a total eclipse. At the same time, a much larger area of our globe falls within the moon’s penumbra (its partial shadow); observers there are close enough to the axis of alignment for the sun to appear partially covered.

Sometimes the umbra just misses the Earth, but a portion of our planet still lies within the penumbra – experiencing a partial eclipse. On rare occasions the umbra can just graze the Earth – but without the axis of the moon’s shadow-cone ever intersecting the surface of our planet: such eclipses are termed “total but non-central”.

If the lunar orbital plane remained pointing in the same direction, then solar eclipses would always occur near the same Gregorian date, year after year. However, the lunar orbital plane gradually swings round, completing a revolution every 18.6 years; inevitably that movement affects the dates of solar eclipses. The result is that the interval between them tends to be either six or (less commonly) five lunar months. That is why solar calendar dates of eclipses are often slightly earlier than ones experienced during the previous year.

Lunar Eclipses

To produce a lunar eclipse, Earth must lie between the sun and moon. Once again, alignment needs to be nearly exact, so (like a solar one) this sort of eclipse is possible only when the moon is on or near the ecliptic plane. This time it is Earth which is casting the shadow – sometimes over the entire lunar disc (total eclipse); on other occasions on just a portion of it (partial eclipse). A lunar eclipse can take place only at Full Moon, and may be observed from absolutely anywhere in Earth’s night-hemisphere.

About two weeks before or after a lunar eclipse, there is always some sort of solar one – because alignment on the first occasion means that there will still be sufficient alignment for the second. In fact, in rare instances it is even possible to have a small partial solar eclipse just prior to the beginning of an Islamic month, followed by a lunar one in mid-month, and then by another small partial solar eclipse near the end of the same month. (A “small” partial eclipse affects a very restricted area of Earth’s surface, with just a minute fraction of the solar disc appearing to be covered).

Preferred dates for Ramadan Eclipses

Every now and again, there is an eclipse during the Holy Month of Ramadan – either a lunar eclipse near the middle of the month or a solar one near the end. Islamic months cannot begin until a day or two after a sun-moon conjunction (to give time for the crescent to become visible), so it is not possible to experience a solar eclipse at the beginning of an Islamic month.

A detailed analysis of Ramadan eclipses reveals a surprising pattern: they seem to be restricted to certain dates in the Gregorian calendar. Every total lunar eclipse which has ever occurred during Ramadan, for example, has fallen within one of three short intervals: 22nd February to 13th March, 20th June to 11th July, or 16th October to 7th November (1), which together add up to less than 20 per cent. of the entire year. (To maintain continuity, dates recorded in the old Julian calendar prior to AD 1582 (or 1752) were converted to “extrapolated” Gregorian-style dates for this particular illustration). Thus, there has never been a Ramadan total lunar eclipse in December/January, nor April/May, nor in August/ September. (Eventually there will be, but not for many thousands of years) (2).

Dates of central solar eclipses occurring during Ramadan have ranged from 12th November to 25th December, or from 20th March to 26th April, or from 16th July to 22nd August (3): (as above, these are Gregorian dates). Here, it is appropriate to include annular as well as total eclipses provided they are “central” (i.e. lying on the lunar umbral axis). The only difference with annular eclipses is that they display a narrow ring of sunlight around the dark lunar disc – caused by the moon being slightly further away from us, or by the sun being closer to Earth than normal.

So why do Ramadan eclipses prefer certain dates? They appear to be tuned to a near-synchronisation between three and a half revolutions of the moon’s orbital plane – and the 65-year period during which the date of mid-Ramadan migrates twice round our solar calendar. The full explanation for the “date-clustering” is complicated, involving periodic readjustments caused by slow accumulation of the difference between the cycle-lengths in that near-synchronisation (4).

Double Eclipses during Ramadan

Sometimes a Ramadan will contain a solar and a lunar eclipse. That inevitably provokes comment, because of traditions that such a “double-eclipse” is a portent for some unusual event. Ithna’asheri Shi’ites, for example, believe that their Twelfth Imam will reappear after a Ramadan double-eclipse (although those two phenomena will supposedly take place in reverse order, with the solar one occurring in mid-month (5); that will require the moon to suddenly double its speed of movement after the onset of the Holy Month!)

In March/April 1894 (Ramadan 1311), Mirza Ghulam Ahmad (founder of the Ahmadiyya or Qadiani movement in Pakistan) interpreted a double-eclipse as a sign that he was a genuine modern-day prophet (6). The lunar eclipse during that particular month was only partial, although the solar one two weeks later was total in a few places in eastern Asia (7). However, there was nothing at all extraordinary about those two eclipses: every 22 or 23 Islamic years there is at least one Ramadan featuring a pair of eclipses two weeks apart (8) – one of which is usually partial; see Table 1.

Very much rarer is a Ramadan containing two total eclipses. Table 2 lists all such occasions since AH 1, as well as during the next 200 years (9); (its solar eclipses are all central, with annular ones also included).

It will be interesting to see whether the two total eclipses scheduled to occur during Ramadan 1424 (AD November 2003) – are cited to support a claim similar to that made by Mirza Ghulam Ahmad, or as proof of the significance of some extraordinary event.

Letter to the Journal of the British Astronomical Association 105/4, 1995

(From Dr David L. McNaughton)

Recently I was asked to examine occurrences of all lunar eclipses during Ramadan since AD 622 (i.e. since the beginning of the Islamic era), and an unexpected pattern emerged. I am trying to put together a tentative explanation for the pattern, and would appreciate comments.

Every total lunar eclipse taking place during Ramadanhas been restricted to certain dates, comprising the three short intervals 22 February to 13 March, 20 June to 11 July and 16 October to 7 November. (To maintain continuity, dates recorded in the old Julian calendar prior to AD 1582 (or 1752) were converted to ‘extrapolated’ Gregorian-style dates for this particular illustration).

So why do Ramadan eclipses prefer certain dates? They appear to be tuned to a near-synchronisation between three and a half revolutions of the moon’s orbital plane – and the 65-year period during which the date of mid-Ramadan migrates twice round our solar calendar. (Is that close resonance purely accidental?)

Detailed eclipse calculations do actually reveal a very slow drift: e.g. after AD 3000 those Ramadan eclipses will tend to move into late March, late July and mid-November.

Ramadan total lunar eclipses may be grouped into three parallel series. Each such progression comprises events 65 years and 2 days apart (on average). That is of course virtually the same as 67 Islamic years (804 lunations). (Furthermore, this time-span is just two hours short of 872½ draconic months). The three parallel series are separated by phase differences of 21 or 22 years; at present they comprise March, July and (mostly) November eclipses respectively.

Within each progression, the two extra days every 65 years do cause a slow but steady date-shift which continues for a few centuries. However, that gradually moves the eclipses away from the lunar nodal points, so this date-shift cannot be maintained indefinitely. Eventually, the progression is disrupted by a ‘backward jump’, which occurs after two successive Ramadans witness a total lunar eclipse. The second member of that pair then takes over as the starting point of a new series of eclipses 65 years and 2 apart, but containing dates displaced 11 days earlier than those taking place in the first series. Thus, this readjustment process interferes with and retards the tendency for Ramadan eclipses to drift.

“The Greatest Discovery Exploded” by Reverend Thakur Das (1903)

Mirza Ghulam Ahmad was allowed to run free by the British government, or they gave the illusion that as a “government” they didn’t wish to intervene on religious matters, however, that was a lie, in fact, the Christian missionaries were purposely unleashed on the people of India by the British government. MGA was thus allowed to engage them like no other person in the entire Indian-Sub-Continent, thus, MGA helped the British give the impression that they allowed freedom of religion, which they really didn’t. There was no freedom of press either, all anti-government writings were always confiscated and burned.

Who is the Reverend J.L. Thakur Das?
He seems to be an indian Hindu who converted to Christianity, he was present during MGA’s 15 day written debate with Athim (see Mujadid e Azim, online abridged version, page 462). Not to be confused with Thakur Das from Kashmir who converted to Ahmadiyya in 1889 and was named Shaikh Abdullah, who quit Ahmadiyya in 1891-1892. He also wrote articles against Islam in the Moslem World magazine.

Mirza Ghulam Ahmad laughed about Africans and how backward they were

MGA was just as racist as the Britishers.  We found an instance from Seeratul Mahdi wherein this is exposed.

The quote
Seertul Mahdi quotation no. 790. “””On the name of God most gracious, most merciful, mir shaffee ahmad sb researcher, dehlvi told me by writing that once one Arab who was sitting with maseeh maoud Elih Salam was telling dirty and absurd jokes and stories on African people-and African monkeys . He kept on listening and laughing . He neither stopped him from telling dirty jokes nor that my time being wasted. But to boost him up, he kept on hearing it without any hesitation till end.”””

Mirza Ghulam Ahmad almost died from Rectal bleeding in the early 1880’s

Dear readers, we all know about MGA and his medical problems, he suffered from some terrible life-long diseases, that actually explains why he hated everyone so much.  In 1907, MGA recalls this entire saga and even mentions how the father of Syed Muhammad Hussain Batalvi even came to visit MGA in this condition, the family of Batalvi and MGA were very close, in fact, MGA visited them in 1869 at their family mosque in Batala (see Dard page 54).

What was the cause of this disease??  Most likely years and years of eating opium.  Furthermore, you will see that Ahmadi editors have changed the language in the english translation of Haqiqatul Wahy, which they always do.  In the english version they have translated this disease as dysenteric colic, which is similar to what MGA died from in 1908.

The quote from the 2018 online edition of Haqiqatul Wahy

See page—301

“””85. [Eighty-fifth] Sign—Once I fell seriously ill with dysenteric colic. For as many as sixteen days I passed blood in stools. The pain was too severe to describe. During those days the late Sheikh Rahim Bakhsh, the revered father of Maulawi Abu Sa‘id Muhammad Husain of Batala, visited me to inquire about my health and he saw my critical condition. And I heard him tell some people that this disease was spreading like an epidemic in those days and that he had just come after offering funeral prayers for someone who had died of the same disease in Batala. And it so happened that a person named Muhammad Bakhsh, a barber and a resident of Qadian, fell ill the same day with the same disease and died on the eighth day.”””

In 1885, Mirza Ghulam Ahmad published a 31-month prophecy vs. his own family

Ahmadi’s are guilty of being fanatical and thus erasing the writings of MGA and his team.  We have found documented proof of backdating, specifically in terms of MGA’s announcement, they are all bogus and tampered with, this was how Ahmadiyya edited the failed prophecies of MGA.  In 1885, MGA wrote this specific announcement, we are unsure where it was published from or how many people saw it.  We are also unable to produce the original.  As you can see, this announcement was written in Aug. of 1885, however, it was purposely backdated by MGA’s team of editors and thus made to seem like it was 1888.  Ahmadiyya editors then went on to claim that this prophecy of MGA’s came true and gave it a start date of 1888 and rudely claim that the death of MGA’s niece fulfilled this prophecy (see Tadhkirah, page 164).

The announcement via Tadhkirah

“”””I received a revelation concerning Mirza Imam-ud-Din and Nizam-ud-Din, that:

Within thirty-one months they would encounter a great misfortune.

I understood this to mean that a man or a woman from among their close relatives would die which would cause great sorrow and division among them. This would happen within thirty-one months from today which is Sawan 23, 1942 [Bikrami], August 5, 1885. Written on August 5, 1885.”””” [Announcement of March 20, 1888, Majmu‘ah Ishtiharat, vol. 1, p. 144](see the 2009, online edition of Tadhkirah, page 164).

In 1893, Mirza Ghulam Ahmad made 6 predictions about Muhammadi Begum

Muhammadi Begum was the niece of MGA.  MGA was thus her uncle in 3-4 different ways. The beef between MGA and his family was raging out of control by the early part of 1893. MGA’s entire family was against MGA and his request to marry his niece. Not a single family member thought MGA was a suitable match, MGA had just recently claimed to be the Promised Messiah and had been a claimer of divine communion since 1879. Furthermore, the majority of the ulema of India had already deemed MGA a Kafir. Nevertheless, in “A’ina-e-Kamalat-e-Islam” in english as “The Mirror of the Excellences of Islam”, MGA presented 6 specific predictions vs. Muhammadi Begum and her father. However, Mirza Ahmad Baig had already died in Sep of 1892 and this book was published in February of 1893 (see Dard page 341). Hence, this seems to be another cover up job by MGA and his team. Why were they publishing a prophecy about the death of MGA’s cousin and brother-in-law (Mirza Ahmad Baig) after he had already died?  It should also be noted that MGA and his team attached an Arabic only supplement to this book entitled, At-Tabligh, it was in this attachment wherein MGA received a revelation from his God to the effect that he would kill the new husband of Muhammadi Begum, just like her father was killed. One last point, this was the first ever exclusive arabic writings by MGA and it appears to be the first book ever printed at the Qadian press. Per Ahmadiyya sources, Muhammadi Begum was married in April 7th, 1892, per Ahmadiyya sources, that makes her 17 years old at the time of marriage, and 13 when MGA asked for her hand in marriage. However, we know that she was even younger and most likely born in 1879-80.
_____________________________________________________________________________________________The quote
I am making not one, but six predictions:

  • I will be alive at the time of the wedding of Muhammadi Begum;
  • Mirza Baig will also be alive at the time of the wedding of his daughter;
  • Mirza Baig will die within three years of the date of the wedding;
  • The Groom will also die within two and half years of the date of the wedding;
  • Muhammadi Begum will remain alive until she becomes my wife;
  • Despite disagreement of all her relatives, she will finally marry me.”
    (Aaina-e-Kamalat-e-Islam Dar Roohani Khazain, P. 325/57�)

Other quotes from Aina-a-Kamalat-e-Islam in terms of Mirza Ahmad Baig and Muhammadi Begum

“”””The Omnipotent and Omniscient God has asked me that I should seek the hand of the elder daughter of this man (Ahmad Beg); should tell him that good conduct and courtesy to be shown to him would depend on this (i.e. his acceptance of the marriage proposal) ; her marriage with me would be a source of blessing and a sign of mercy for her father; and that he would have his share in all those blessings and mercies which have been laid down in the leaflet dated 20 February 1886 but if he declines to marry her, then the girl would meet an extremely tragic end. The other person to whom she would be married would die within two and a half years after the day of wedding,’ and so would die the father of the girl within three years, and her household would be afflicted with discord and poverty and adversity, and during the intervening period the girl would encounter several events of unpleasant and grievous nature.””””[3](Ai’na-i-Kamalat-i-Islam, pa 286. It has also been reproduced by Qasim Ali Ahmadi in Tabligh-i-Risalat, Vol. 1, pp. I I 1–18.)


(A) Allah observed that my cousins and near relatives were committed to ruinous courses…and that they denied the existence of God and were wicked people…. Allah saw that they incited people to vice and forbade good…and did not refrain from speaking ill of the Holy Prophet, peace and the blessings of Allah be upon him, but persisted in it…. While they were in this condition Allah chose me for the revival of His faith…and provided me handsomely with inspiration and verbal revelation and communications and visions… whereupon they rebelled and mockingly demanded Signs  and said: ‘We have no knowledge of any God Who speaks to anyone…so let him produce a Sign if he is truthful…’ In this way they advanced daily in their error and their arrogance till they decided to propagate their evil thoughts and to mislead the ignorant ones with their delusions. They have published a document in which they have abused the Holy Prophet, peace and blessings of Allah be upon him, and have abused the Word of Allah and have denied the existence of God, hallowed be His name. Along with this they have demanded Signs in support of my truthfulness and have demanded proof of the existence of God Almighty. They have published this document widely in all quarters and have thus helped all the non-Muslims of India against Islam and have transgressed greatly, the equal of which has not been heard of even about the Pharaohs…. When this document of theirs, which was prepared by the biggest of them in evil as well as in age, reached me…I found it full of phrases whereby the heavens might be rent asunder…. Thereupon, I bolted my doors and supplicated
my Lord, the Bountiful, prostrating myself before Him and…saying: My Lord, my Lord, help Your servant and humiliate Your enemies. Respond to me O Lord, respond to me. How long will they mock You and Your Messenger, how long will they call Your Book false and will abuse Your Messenger? I beseech You of Your mercy, O Hayy [the Ever-Living], Qayyum [the Self Subsisting], Mo‘in [the Helper].

Then Allah had mercy on me in consequence of my weeping, my sighing, and my tears and He called me and said:

[Arabic] I have observed their disobedience and their transgression, I shall soon afflict them with various types of misfortunes and shall wipe them out from under the heavens. You will soon see how I shall deal with them and I have power to do all that I might will. I shall make their women widows, and their children orphans, and their houses ruins, so that they might taste that which they have said and they have earned. But I shall not destroy them suddenly at one swoop, but stage by stage, so that they might have a chance of turning back and repenting. My curse will descend upon them and upon their homes and upon their little ones and their big ones and their women and their men and their guests who will enter their doors. All of them will be accursed except those who believe and act righteously and cut off their relations with them and keep off from their gatherings. Those will be the recipients of My mercy.

This is the substance of what my Lord has revealed to me.  So I conveyed the messages of my Lord to them, but they felt no fear and did not affirm the truth. Instead, they increased in their rebellion and denial, and went on mocking like the enemies of the faith. Then my Lord
addressed me and said:

We shall show them Signs which will cause them to weep and shall send down upon them strange afflictions and extraordinary diseases and shall make their lives a misery and shall
pile up afflictions upon them and no one will be able to help them.

Thus did Allah the Almighty deal with them, breaking their backs with the weight of sorrows and debts and privations and sent down upon them all kinds of trials and tribulations and opened for them the doors of death and destruction so that they might turn back and should give up their indifference, but their hearts were hardened and they did not understand nor did they wake up nor did they fear.  When the time of the display of the Sign drew near, it so happened in those days that one of their near relations of the name of Ahmad Baig desired to take possession of the
land of his sister whose husband had disappeared many years before. 
[A’ina-e-Kamalat-e-Islam, pp. 566–570, Ruhani Khaza’in, vol. 5, pp. 566–570](See also the 2009 online edition of Tadhkirah, page 198-201).   


“””These people wrote a letter to me in which they reviled the Holy Prophet, peace and blessings of Allah be upon him, and denied the existence of God and demanded proofs of my truth and of the existence of God. They published this letter and supported the non-Muslims of India and exhibited extreme wickedness.””” (A’ina-i-Kamalat-i-Islam, p. 568).

“””””When the scurrilous book came to my hands I read therein such a grossly abusive language against the Most High God and His Holy Prophet as would lacerate the hearts of the believers and rip open and rend the Muslims’ minds. The profane words, it appeared to me, would tear asunder the very heavens. So I shut myself in a room and prostrated before the Great God of the heavens and the earth and prayed most humbly: O my Lord, O my Lord, help Your servant and disgrace Your enemy. Respond to me, O Lord respond to me. How long will they mock you and your Messenger? I beseech you of your mercy, O Ever Living, Self Subsisting Helper!”””  (A’inah Kamalat Islam, p. 569).  


“””We have seen their wickedness and transgression, because of which a grievous punishment shall come upon their heads. Their women, We shall make them widows, and orphan their children. Their places of residence We shall destroy and demolish, so that they may bear the fruit of their deeds. But We shall not strike them with a single blow, but slowly that they may turn to the truth and become repentant.”””  (page 569-570).

“””Tell him to establish a relationship with you by giving his elder daughter in marriage to you and thus to obtain light from your light. Tell him that you would agree to the transfer of the land as he has requested and show him other favors in the event of this marriage taking place. Tell him that this would be a covenant between you and that if he accepts it he will find you the best acceptor on your side and that if he does not accept it and his daughter is married to someone else that marriage would not prove a blessing either for his daughter or for himself. Tell him that if he persists in carrying out any different design he will become subject to a series of misfortunes, the last of which would be his death within three years of the marriage of his daughter to someone else. Warn him that his death is near and will occur at a time when he does not expect it. The husband of his daughter will also die within two years and a half. This is a divine decree.””” (A’ina-i-Kamalat-i-Islam, p. 572)

“””I have been informed of matters which had never entered my mind nor did I know anything about them. At such a time God directed me through revelation that I should seek the hand of his elder daughter in marriage and should tell him that he should first establish this relationship with me and should thereby seek light from my light. I was also directed to tell him that I had been commanded to let him have the land which he had asked for and even some more and to show
benevolence towards him in many ways, provided he would agree to the marriage of his elder daughter to me. This would be a covenant between us and if he agreed to it he would find me a good party to it; but if he did not agree to it I was to warn him that I had been informed by God that her marriage to anyone else would not prove blessed for the person she marries nor for her father. If he did not comply with my request he would be afflicted with misfortunes culminating in his death. He would die within three years of the marriage [of his daughter].  Indeed, his death might occur earlier at a time when he is unaware. So also the husband of that girl would die within two and a half years of the marriage. This is a divine decree and you can act as you might
choose, I have warned you….Then, I wrote to him under divine direction and as indicated by my Gracious God…‘I am writing this letter to you under divine direction and not of my own accord, so make this letter secure in your box for this is from one true and faithful and God knows that I am entirely truthful in this matter and the promise I have made has been made by God’s direction and not on my own. It is Allah Who has made me speak under His revelation.’”””  
[A’ina-e-Kamalat-e-Islam, Ruhani Khaza’in, vol. 5, pp. 572–574](See also the 2009 online edition of Tadhkirah, page 202).

“”””[Arabic] We shall kill her husband (also) as we have destroyed her father and will return her to you. This is the truth from your Lord, then be not of those who doubt. We shall delay it only for a fixed period. Say: Wait till the end of the term and I am with you among those who wait. When the promise of God is fulfilled [it will be said]: Is this what you called false or were you
blind?”””  [A’ina-e-Kamalat-e-Islam, p. 576, Ruhani Khaza’in, vol. 5, p. 576](See also the 2009 online edition of Tadhkirah, page 289).

“”””As a token of the Almighty’s favor to this humble person, Allah has ordained that, should Mirza Ahmad Baig refuse to wed his elder daughter to me, he will be considered Allah’s enemy and a disbeliever (Kafir). Additionally, as a punishment for his disbelief, Mirza Baig will die within three years of this refusal and any other man who marries Muhammadi Begum will die within two and half years of the date of his wedding. Muhammadi Begum is destined — by thealmighty Allah — to ultimately become my wife.””” (Tableeg-e-Resalat, Vol. 1 , P. 61 ).
