Who is Mohammad-Baqer Majlesi?

Intro
He is the author of the famous book about Yuz Asaf, which destroys the Ahmadiyya theory that Yuz Asaf= Esa (as). Mohammad Baqer Majlesi (1627–1699) (Persianعلامه مجلسی‎ Allameh Majlesi; also Romanized as: MajlesiMajlessiMajlisiMadjlessi), known as Allamah Majlesi or Majlesi Al-Thani (Majlesi the Second), was a renowned and very powerful Iranian Twelver Shi’a cleric, during the Safavid era. He has been described as “one of the most powerful and influential Shi’a ulema of all time”, whose “policies and actions reoriented Twelver Shia’ism in the direction that it was to develop from his day on.”[1]

Ahmadi’s quote his book, Bihar al Anwar when they use the argument that the great Jihad is vs. one’s self.  His name can also be spelled as Allamah Muhammad Baqir al-Majlisi.
_____________________________________________________________________________________________
Razi Qudrat has also quoted Bihar al Anwar

MGA never claimed that the second coming of Muhammad (Saw)(Nauzobillah) was written in any hadith or by any scholar. However, Razi Qudrat from Ahmadi Answers is claiming that in the book, Bihar al Anwar, there is someting. Razi didn’t go to college, so he doesnt know how to properly reference data. Nevertheless, the first time it seems that this reference was used in 1978, in Bashir Ahmad Rafiq’s book, “”Truth About Ahmadiyya”.

Bihar al Anwar, Vol. 13, Page 209
“”The Imam Mahdi will say: O ye people, if any of you wishes to behold Ibrahim and Ishmael, then let him note that I am Ibrahim and Ishmael. If any of desires to behold Moses and Joshua, then let him note that I am Moses and Joshua. If any of you desires to see Esa and Simon, then let him note, I am Esa and Simon. If any of you desires to behold Muhammad Mustafa, PBUH, and Ameerul Momineen Ali, May Allah be pleased with him, then let him note that I am Muhammad Mustafa, PBUH, and Ameer ul Momineen Ali, May Allah be pleased with him”

Who is Munshi Indarman Moradabadi in Ahmadiyya history?

Intro
In the early to mid-1880’s, MGA was a rogue member of the Ahl-e-hadith Muslims of the Punjab and Northern India. In fact, most of his early followers came from the Ahl-e-hadith sect, Noorudin being the top most person. The British government wanted Muslims to move away from the Hanafi-fiqh of Muslim Laws. Since the Mughal and Ottoman empires used the Hanafi fiqh. The biggest issue here is that all of the info on Indarman Murabadi comes from Ahmadiyya sources, we haven’t located the Hindu side of the story. We do however, have Lekh Ram’s testimony from this era, as well as his visit to Qadian in this era.
_____________________________________________________________________________________________

Munshi Indarman Morabadi was from Morabad
Per Ahmadiyya sources (Dard), Munshi Indarman Moradabadi was instigated (in 1884/1885) by the then ruling prince of Nabha (who was a sikh named Hira Singh) to answer MGA’s public challenge. Therefore he sent a reply to MGA registered letter from Nabha; and then wrote from Lahore asking MGA to go to him, although MGA had asked him to come to Qadian for the purpose. To Qadian, the Munshi said, he would come only for a debate. He further asked MGA to deposit Rs. 2,400 in a bank.
_____________________________________________________________________________________________

His authorship, the British-government and his relationship with Dayanand, per Ahmadiyya sources
He had written the following books: Tuhfa’-e-Islam (Persian, 1274 A.H.). Padash-e-Islam (Persian, 18661), Usul-e-Din-e-Ahmad (1869), Hamla’-e-Hind, Samsam-e-Hind and Saulat-e-Hind (1868). The last three were published a third time in 1880 at Muradabad. The Jami Jamshed of Moradabad, Vol. 5, No: 8, dated May 16, 1880, protested against them. So Indarman was prosecuted under Section 292 and 293 I.P.C. and a warrant was issued for his arrest on July 22, 1880. His books were then destroyed and he was fined Rs. 500. Swami Dayanand raised subscriptions to help Indarman and he accused Dayanand of misappropriating the fund. Dayanand in turn expelled Indarman from the Arya Samaj. (I. Life of Dayanand in Urdu by Pt. Lekhram, Lahore, 1897, pp. 812-820. II. Swami Dayanand and his Teachings in Urdu by Mehta
Radha Kishen, Gilani Electric Press, Lahore, 1983 Samat, pp. 281-289)(see DARD).
_____________________________________________________________________________________________

1884-1885
As mentioned earlier, in 1885, he had a challenge going with MGA that included victory money of up to 2400 rupees (see Dard page 107). However, MGA requested a written debate, in fact, MGA never had a verbal debate with anyone in his life. At this point, Lekh ram and Munshi Indarman Murabdi stepped up to represent the Hindus of British-India.
_____________________________________________________________________________________________

1885–May 30th
Per Ahmadiyya sources, the Munshi should write a reply to the Brahin-e- Ahmadiyya and get Rs. 10,000. This letter was printed at the Siddiqi Press, Lahore, and was dated May 30th, 1885. In answer to it the Munshi issued a leaflet printed at the Mufid-e-‘Am Press, Lahore, in which he
blamed Ahmadas for not holding the debate to which, he alleged, he was originally invited, despite the fact that he had come to Lahore for the purpose. He also wrote that the debate should be held, provided necessary arrangements were made with the police for its peaceful conduct.
_____________________________________________________________________________________________

1885, April
After finishing up with Indarman, Lekh ram wrote MGA a letter and began negotiating a trip to Qadian to pickup the 2400 rupees that were offered. After going back and forth with MGA via letters.
_____________________________________________________________________________________________

1885, November
After going back and forth with MGA for 6 months, Lekh Ram finally arrived at Qadian to have a debate with MGA (See Dard).
_____________________________________________________________________________________________

1886, April 8th
MGA publishes another announcement, as everyone waits to see if the promised son prophecy comes true or not. MGA mentions Indarman specifically by name in this announcement.
_____________________________________________________________________________________________

1886–September
Per Ahmadiyya sources, MGA published his famous book, “Surma Chasmay Arya”, wherein he mentions his debate with Murlinder amongst other things.
_____________________________________________________________________________________________

1887–February
The Arya community of Qadian, with the help of Lekhram, published an announcement in the form of a magazine called Surma Chasham Arya ki Haqiqat (The Reality of Surmah Chasham
Arya). This magazine was published at Chashma Nur printing press in Amritsar.
_____________________________________________________________________________________________

1888
“”Shahnah-i Haq”” which translates as the “Chief Constable of Truth” is published by MGA in response to the Arya’s of Qadian. The exact publishing date is unknown.

Mirza Ghulam Ahmad was dishonest as he quoted Ayn-ul-Hayat, as he lied about Yuz Asaf (1898)

Intro
As we all know, MGA and his team of writers/editors lied about almost everything they did. We have fodn a huge case of academic dishonesty in terms of MGA’s quotations to a persian book, “Ayn-ul-Hayat”. MGA and his team first quoted this book in 1898, in a book called ‘Raz-e-Haqiqat”, which was translated and published into english in 2016, see page 24. However, they were academically dishonest, they purposely didn’t mention that Yuz Asaf had a father and many other things, an Ex-Ahmadi, Shams ud Din, recently got a hold of Ayn ul Hayat and posted his results in a video, make sure you watch Part-2 also, these are in Urdu and watch part 3. We have also found “Ayn ul Hayat” and have posted the PDF’s in the below (See pages 177/403 to 198/403). This book proves that MGA totally lied. Shams ud Din found the book “Rahul ul Hayat” by Allama Muhammad Bakir, there is an urdu translation called, “Ainul Hayat”. On page 361, it is written that Yuz Asaf had a father in Kashmir. This immediately cancelled Yuz Asaf becoming Esa (As), since Esa (as) historically never had a father. Yuz Asaf was the son of a King and was able to live a life of excess. MGA never mentioned any of this. Yuz Asaf’s dad was a drunkard, and even prayed to idols. It is also important to read about Maulvi Shaikh Abdullah Wakeel’s story about Yuz Asaf.

Mirza Ghulam Ahmad’s announcement of August 8th, 1887

Intro
On August 7th, 1887 (8-7-1887) MGA’s famous son, Bashir-1 was born. Per Ahmadiyya sources MGA immediately had an announcement published at the Victoria Press, Lahore. MGA did mention the announcement in “The Green Announcement” in 1888. In the below, we have published some partial english translations.
_____________________________________________________________________________________________

The only reference to the announcement in from “The Green Announcement” of 1888, see page 4 of the online english edition (2008)

“”””Readers! I give you the good news that the boy whose birth I had prophesized in the announcement of 8th April 1886…… came into this world on 16th Zil-Qa‘ad, or 7th August.””””

See the announcement of 7th August 1887, printed at Victoria Press, Lahore.
______________________________________________________________________________________________

Also quoted by the Lahori-Ahmadi as such
“”””O Viewers! I give you good news that the son whose birth I had predicted in the proclamation of 8th April 1886, and after receiving communication from the Exalted God, had declared unequivocally that in case he was not born of the present pregnancy, he will definitely be born of the next pregnancy which will be soon after. That auspicious son was born today, 16th Zeeqaad 1304 Hijra, corresponding to 7th August 1887, after midnight at about 1:30 a.m. So Allah be praised for this.””””

Who is Bashir-1 in Ahmadiyya history?

Intro
Bashir-1 or Bashir the first or Bashir-avul was the Promised son of MGA who died in infancy. On February 20th, 1886 (2-20-1886), MGA had his servants publish an announcement which predicted the birth of a “Promised Son” (Musleh Maud in urdu) for MGA. We have to assume that MGA’s daughter was born in March of 1886, however, Ahmadiyya sources lie and claim that she (Ismat, 1886–1891) was born on April 15, 1886. In March of 1886, MGA began amending the prophecy. He continued amending it in April, since he knew that he already had a daughter. The problem is that no one really knows when Ismat was born, her birth was not announced, nor are there witnesses in Qadian who can corroborate this Date of birth. Nevertheless, Ismat was born and MGA guaranteed that in the next pregnancy, a promised son would be born, MGA even said that if the son still isn’t born, it will happen in 9-18 years in the future. Bashir-1 was eventually born on August 7th, 1887, MGA issued a leaflet to announce the birth of his son in accordance with the prophecy made on April 8th, 1886.

The Ahmadis: The Jihad against Free Speech by Robert Spencer

Intro
This entire entry was taken from here: https://www.jihadwatch.org/2019/10/the-ahmadis-the-jihad-against-free-speech.

The data

“The Western leaders make me laugh by maintaining that they cannot put restrictions on newspapers and freedom of expression,” stated the Ahmadi “caliph,” Hadrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad, in London on February 10, 2006. This crackpot demonstrated how the smallcaliphate-dreaming Ahmadi cult has joined other Muslims in demanding Islamic censorship — another fact that belies the Ahmadis’ fraudulently cultivated “moderate” reputation.

Ahmad spoke during a series of February-March 2006 London addresses following global Muslim outrage after the Danish newspaper Jyllands-Posten in December 2005 published “foul caricatures” of Islam’s prophet Muhammad. Later compiled in an online book, the speeches documented how he found bewildering the defenses of the cartoons in Denmark and beyond as free speech, given Holocaust-denial prohibitions in Western countries like Denmark. The “vulgar expression about any sacred person of any religion does not constitute freedom in any way at all,” he stated.

In a March 29, 2008 London address contained in another online compendium of Ahmad’s statements, he reproached Western societies for “immoral acts” such as the Jyllands-Posten cartoons. These cartoons “ridicule founders of religions and prophets and make mockery of their teachings and scriptures.” Earlier in February, he had condemned the West for “swiftly abandoning religion” and said it was “demolishing moral values in every field in the name of freedom.” This “mischief is let loose that makes the filth of their minds and remoteness from God evident, and demonstrates their prejudice and malice against Islam.”

“Everything has a limit and some code of conduct,” including journalism, Ahmad concluded, as he called for suppressing such criticism of Islam, in line with similar calls from the Organization of the Islamic Conference, now known as the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC). He approved the fact that the 57-member state (including “Palestine”) OIC, pursuant to a decades-long international censorship campaign, “has said that the Western countries will be pressured to apologize as well as to legislate against offending Prophets of God.” Given Muslim rioting worldwide in response to Denmark’s free speech, he presented himself as a protector of law and order, warning that if Islam’s critics “do not abstain, then world peace could not be guaranteed.” Similarly, a Danish Ahmadi wrote in a February 2006 edition of a local newspaper that the cartoons were “simply a dirty and childish act,” such that “to stem disorder it is required to apply” Denmark’s anti-defamation law.

Ahmad returned to his Islamic inquisition in 2012, following more international Muslim anger in response to the online American video Innocence of Muslims, as well as cartoons mocking Muhammad in France’s Charlie Hebdo satire magazine. Another online book collection of his speeches contained an introduction that condemned an “international conspiracy against Islam and its Holy Founder.” This involved “vulgar language, obscene descriptions, distortion of the teachings of Islam and the noble character of the Holy Prophet Muhammad” and “negative propaganda, blasphemous criticism.”

In a September 21, 2012 sermon in a Surrey, England, Ahmadi mosque, Ahmad once again subordinated critical discussion to Islamic law’s (sharia) blasphemy prohibitions. “Laws made by God are flawless. Do not consider, therefore, your man-made laws to be perfect,” he stated with unquestioning fidelity to Islamic orthodoxy. By contrast, the “law regarding freedom of speech is not a Divine scripture.”

Correspondingly, Ahmad called for legal action. “While a law for freedom of speech exists, neither in any country nor in the UN Charter do we find a law that states that no person will be allowed the freedom to hurt the religious sentiments of others or insult the holy personages of other religions.” “It is necessary for world peace that this is made a part of the UN peace charter,” otherwise there would result a “lava of hatred to erupt and the gulf between countries and religions to increasingly widen.”

During his first visit to the European Parliament in Brussels, Belgium, on December 3-4, 2012, he likewise advocated “policies that establish and protect mutual respect.” Thus “hurting the sentiments of others or causing them any type of harm should be outlawed.” This reflected that “Islam teaches that only those who use their tongues [emphasis added] and hands to spread injustice and hatred deserve to be punished.”

Ahmad in his Surrey address appealed to Muslims worldwide to support this legal campaign, as Muslims “could bring about a revolution in the world” with “laws pertaining to respecting religious sentiments within countries.” Governments in Muslim-majority countries should tell the “world that according to the teachings of the Holy Qur’an, playing with the religious sentiments of others or to try to dishonor the prophets of God is a major crime and major sin.” In tandem, “all of the Muslim lawyers of the world should join together and form a petition” advocating blasphemy punishments.

Global Muslim solidarity, while appealing to Ahmad in his Surrey remarks, had ominous implications for non-Muslims:

Muslims are the second greatest power of the world in terms of population and religion. Were they to abide by the commandments of Allah the Almighty they could become the greatest force in every sense. In such an instance, the anti-Islamic forces would never even dare contemplating or perpetrating such heart-rending acts.

Ahmad stressed that opposition to criticism of Islam should remain nonviolent, for “[i]t is completely contrary to the teachings of Islam to attack innocent people.” Earlier during his October 22, 2008 House of Commons address he had argued that “hatred spurs certain extremist Muslims into committing ‘un-Islamic’ deeds,” violence which serves as precisely his justification for censorship. “If our Muslim leaders had made robust efforts then the public would not react inappropriately, as is currently occurring in Pakistan and in other countries,” he stated in Surrey.

Yet contradictorily, Ahmad presented blasphemy’s effect upon Muslims in decidedly zealous, militant tones. A Muslim “is prepared to give up his or her life and be slain for the respect and honor of the Prophet.” Accordingly, Muslims “prostrate before God the Exalted and pray that may He take revenge from these wrongdoers. May they become a sign of admonishment that will remain a lesson until the end of time.”

Following their caliph, American Ahmadi leaders have promoted various stratagems to repress verbal attacks upon Islam, even in a land whose free speech protections are among the most robust in the world. Qasim Rashid has presented to this author and others the absurd legal analysis that long-overturned United States Supreme Court decisions (e.g. Schenk v. United States) could prohibit expression such as Terry Jones’ 2011 Quran burning. Like former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Harris Zafar, meanwhile, has attempted to shame Islam-critical “enemies of peace.” Zafar laments the fact that some people “claim that an individual’s privilege to say whatever they want is more important than the higher principle of uniting people.”

University of California-Los Angeles law professor Amjad Mahmood Khan also appeared to follow Clinton’s playbook during a 2015 address, while questionably asserting that Islamic doctrine favored free speech. “Differences of opinion are a blessing among my people,” the Ahmadi spokesman Khan cited Muhammad saying. When facing verbal attacks in seventh-century Arabia, he “bore this vile speech with patience and forbearance and he never sanctioned violence or prosecution for objectionable speech,” a claim that might surprise various dead poets in Islamic canons.

Nonetheless, the “Quran repeatedly discourages unseemly speech intended to sow discord,” Khan warned. Therefore

speech that is solely intended to ridicule the prophet and hurt the sentiments of over 1.5 billion Muslims must be exercised with caution and restraint. Of course the speech is unrestricted, not in the same way as it is in the Islamic world, here with our First Amendment, and as a lawyer I swear to protect those vital constitutional safeguards. But there still is a moral duty to condemn speech designed to hurt religious personages.

Past statements by Khan and other Ahmadi leaders undercut the liberal message of the February 26, 2016 launch at Washington, DC’s Rayburn House Office Building of the Ahmadi True Islam online public relations campaign. While addressing the audience, he lamented survey data showing American Muslim support for blasphemy restrictions. Contrasting with Rashid’s quoted online support for True Islam, Ahmadi representatives Amjad Chaudhry and Bashir Shams rejected before this author Rashid’s censorship views, with the latter saying “we believe in writing.”

Nevertheless, Ahmadi speech has often been merely another means of silencing critics such as the late (d. 2010) German scholar of Islam Hiltrud Schröter, author of a 2002 book on the Ahmadis. She discussed how the German Ahmadi community “attempted in various ways to silence me, for example through defamation and false assertions” online. According to these representations, she “worked unscientifically, is crazy, and has delusions.”

American anti-sharia activist Pamela Geller likewise condemned Ahmadi advocates in 2014. “These ‘moderate’ Muslims smear, defame and attack counter jihadists like Robert Spencer and me” and “provide essential cover for the global jihad,” she wrote, “so color me skeptical.” Ironically, “US leaders of the Ahmadi community carry water for the same Islamic supremacists who would cheerfully slit their throats if they were back in Pakistan.”

Yet the strained Ahmadi relationship with free speech makes sense given the Ahmadi faith’s hollowness. Strange and not-so-true Ahmadi beliefs previously examined in this series concerning matters including caliphates, Islamic history, Israel, Jesus, marriage, sex, and the West can no more withstand open debate than can the views of the late Lyndon LaRouche. While Ahmadis deserve the same sympathy as other victims of oppression in Muslim-majority societies worldwide, Ahmadis’ own antagonism towards liberty is just one more reason not to take the Ahmadis seriously.

Mirza Tahir Ahmad never ordered #Ahmadis to remove the Kalima from their places of worship either. Mirza Tahir Ahmad basically radicalized #Ahmadis in the early 1980’s.
