Dear readers, about 10-15 years ago, some Ahmadi made a website called “tombofjesus”. When the tomb of Yuz Asaf was discovered by some Ahmadi’s (1895 or 1896), it was argued by Maulvi Shaikh Abdullah (the lawyer) who was an inhabitant of Kashmir, that since this tomb was that of a prophet, that eliminated all muslims from the equation, thus it must belong to a Jewish prophet. Muslims strictly believe that the HP was the final prophet, there were no more prophets to come. Muslims only had one prophet, on the other hand the jewish people had many prophets, in other words because of the concept of khatme-nubuwwat, this had to be a jewish prophet. When HMGA recieved this data he also used the ending of prophethood as his main argument in terms of proving that Yus Asaf was not a muslim.
In a letter written to HMGA(1895 or 1896), maulvi Abdullah writes:
“The word nabi is common between the followers of Islam and the Israelites, and as in Islam no prophet came after our Holy Prophet Muhammad, nor could one come, therefore the general Muslims of Kashmir are agreed that this prophet is from before Islam.”
“But because of the ending of prophethood, this excludes the Muslim people. Therefore it is clearly proved that this prophet is an Israelite prophet.”
Then HMGA wrote a footnote to this published letter, in it he comments:
“””””But after the ending of prophethood, no further prophet can come in Islam. Therefore it is settled that he was an Israelite prophet.””””
This argument was contradicted in November of 1901 as MGA claimed prophethood
As we all know, before 1901, MGA and his team denied that MGA was a prophet, however, after November, MGA was a full fledged prophet and thus the entire line of argumentation that was created to prove that Yuz Asaf=Jesus was totally contradicted.
The owners of the “tomb of Jesus” website also felt the same contradiction, they felt the need to add this important note:
Tomb of Jesus Website Comments:
“””””The reader will note that in footnote 2 above, Ghulam Ahmad states that no prophet can come after Muhammad. Therefore, the inhabitant of the Roza Bal must have been a Jewish prophet. Later, though, as his followers believe, and as Ghulam Ahmad explained, God had repeatedly told Ghulam Ahmad that He (God) had appointed Ghulam Ahmad as a follower-prophet of Muhammad. Ahmadiyya literature reflects that Ghulam Ahmad himself seemed quite stunned by these revelations from God, because, just as other Muslims, he had understood Islam to teach that there could be no prophet of any type coming after Muhammad].””””
Further research showed that ahmadis did not abandon this debate-tactic. In two books published in the 1930’s and 40’s the same technique was used:
The Tomb of Jesus by Sufi Mutuir Rahman Bengalee, M. A.
See pg. 41
and Where Did Jesus Die? by J. D. Shams
See chapter 13
They wrote the same argument. That’s unbelievable. I think these two men felt that this argument alone convinced HMGA that this tomb was in fact that of Jesus.
Who is Khalifa Nooruddin?
This is another person that helped MGA land on the idea that Yuz Asaf= Jesus (see Page 48).
Dard tells us about Khalifa Noorudin as follows, see page 684:
“”””On October 4th, 1899, Ahmadas appealed for funds; and, apart from the permanent needs of the Langar at Qadian and the production of literature, he proposed to send a deputation of three men to Afghanistan, Nisibain, Kerbala, and the Laghman mountains to make further research with regard to the travels of Jesusas. Khalifa Nur-ud-Dinra (Born 1847, died, 2.9.1942) had in this connection made the necessary enquiries in Kashmir.”””
He gave money for the building of the white minaret
Per Dard (page 855), Khalifa Nur-ud-Din, Merchant, Jammu.
