Q.2:106 and Q16.101 are the two “verses of abrogation” contained in the Quran. — Qur’an 2:106, When We substitute one revelation for (another) revelation, – and Allah knows best what He reveals (in stages),– they say, “Thou art but a forger”: but most of them understand not.  Chapter 16 was revealed before Hijra and Chapter 2 right after Hijra.

MGA writes that anyone who believes in Abrogation in the Quran of any sort is not a Muslim.  MGA thus declared 99% of the Muslims in the world as Kafirs (See also, pages 61-62).

The quote
Izala e Auham: Roohani Khaza’in Vol. 3:, p. 170, via See also, pages 61-62.

“””Gist of our faith is:  La Ilaha Illallah Muhammadur Rasulullah. (There is no god but Allah, Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah.)

Our belief, which we hold in this life here on earth and to which we will continue to adhere firmly till the time that we pass on to the next world, is that our spiritual leader and master, Muhammad, peace and blessings of Allah be on him, is the Seal of the Prophets and the Best of the Messengers. At his hands religion has been perfected and blessing of Allah has been consummated which lead man to the right path and further on to God Himself. We hold this positive belief with absolute certainty that the Holy Quran is the seal of all Divine books and not an iota can be added to or subtracted from its prescribed teachings, inhibitions, commands and injunctions. There will be no revelation or word from God which may amend or abrogate or change or alter any of the injunctions of the Holy Quran. If anyone subscribes to such views, in our opinion, he ceases to belong to the body of believers and becomes an infidel thereby.

In MGA’s book, “Anwar ul Islam”. MGA seems to have received the quranic verse of abrogation (2:106) as his own revelation (see the 2009 online edition of Tadhkirah, page 333).

Noorudin denied the entire concept of Abrogation in Islam.

MGA receives Quran-2:106 as his own revelation, and its published in Ahmadiyya newspapers.  However, a detailed commentary is not given.  [Badr, vol. 2, no. 46, November 15, 1906, p. 3 and
al-Hakam, vol. 10, no. 39, November 17, 1906, p. 1](see also the 2009 online edition of Tadhkirah, page 898).

The English ROR, with an essay written by Maulvi Muhammad Ali totally rejects that any verses of the Quran were ever abrogated.

There is a series of three articles in the Review of Religions in 1907 (English edition August to October, and Urdu edition October to December) which might, might possibly, be of some small relevance in this connection. I am making them available as below:

  1. English series (image form)
  2. English series (ocr form)
  3. Urdu series
