We present an evaluation of this lecture/book. Be advised, we only have Ahmadiyya sources on this specific topic, hence, most of this background data is dubious, however, Ahmadiyya sources do quote 5-6 British newspapers which only indicate that this event did take place and MGA’s speech was read out and applauded heavily (see Hidden Treasures). In reality, this book was penned by MGA’s team at Qadian and delivered in a speech at Lahore by Maulvi Abdul Kareem. Khawaja Kamal uddin Sahib [who later left Qadiani Jama’at] brought a message to MGA that they should write something. MGA was sick as usual, he seems to have ordered his team to write something for this occasion. Khawaja Sahib was not happy with the exposition and expressed a sense of hopelessness and felt it would be mocked and derided (See Dard pages 477-478). However, Ahmadi sources claims that their God had already informed MGA that his exposition would excel so he had some posters published about the exposition and assured Khawaja Sahib about it and asked him to put up the posters in Lahore. Khawaja Sahib had made his mind up about the exposition so he withheld putting up the posters and only did so at the very end when others insisted. He put up a few posters high up on walls the night before so that no one could see them because he thought the exposition was not worthy to be read at the convention. The conference was eventually held on December 26, 27, 28, 1896, and it was extended to December 29. However, when the exposition was read out at the convention, as we know, MGA’s paper won, however, the judges were overly sympathetic to ahmadiyya, in fact, the person who gave up his time so that Nooruddin could keep reading was Maulvi Mubarak Ali of Sialkot, who had many sympathies to the Ahmadiyya Movement. The appointed time for the exposition passed but the audience remained ever eager. The time was extended, so much so that in order to accommodate the exposition the convention had to be extended by a day. Khawaja Sahib was an educated man, he was a lawyer, and he knew that this paper was not good at all. This story is also covered by Muhammad Ali and Mirza Basheer-ud-Din Mahmud in the era of 1915-1924, as they criticized each other extensively.
MGA writes that if someone’s wife even speaks to another man, the man should divorce her
Another gem from MGA, he claims that even if another man talks to someone’s wife, that is grounds for divorce.
Eating Pork/swine = immoral acts and leads to homosexuality
This famous Ahmadi argument was invented in this book.
It was published from London
The book was published in London as “The Teachings of Islam” in 1910″, translated by Muhammad Ali. Muhammad Ali signs off the Preface as May 1910. He also erroneously writes that the translation was continued in the ROR of 1903, however, it wasn’t. The October-1902 edition of the ROR contains the final portion of the english translation. It was first translated into english in the March 1902 edition of the English-ROR (see pages 81 to 100) and the April edition of the same year (see pages 121-140), the June edition, pages 209-237, the July edition pages, 253-265, the August edition, pages, 292-297, the October edition, pages 383-389.
