Ahmadiyya sources report in 1961 (this is when Malfuzat volume-5 was published), how MGA explained the status of any claimant of law-bearing prophethood (in 1903) as “wajib-ul-qatl (deserving of death). However, All prophets bring law (see Muhammad Ali, Prophethood in Islam {1915}), prophets don’t follow other prophets, or the revelations of other prophets (which form the prayer of those people). All prophets followed Allah (See 4:64 of the Quran), not other prophets or other scriptures. In fact, all 124,000 prophets brought some form of law, however, most of their revelations were lost. From 1880 to 1900, MGA even said that a follower could never become a prophet (see Muhammad Ali, Prophethood in Islam {1915}). MGA seems to have come to the understanding that prophets can become followers in the 1900-1901 era, this was the major change in prophethood which MGA invented (see haqiqatul wahy, the will and a few other books from after 1901). Factually, no verse of the quran differentiates between law-bearing vs. non-law-bearing prophets. The Quran only differentiates by calling some prophets additionally as Messengers (rasul). However, Rasul seems to be just a term of endearment, used to connatate additional respect as needed. Similarly, Waffa is used to describe death with respect, whereas Maut simply means death. Nevertheless, in November of 1901, MGA claimed to be an Ummati-Nabi, and in a roundabout way, he also claimed to be the second coming of Muhammad (saw). About 53 years after MGA died, a new reference on MGA’s prophethood was finally published, this new utterance is from Malfuzat Volume-5, which was published from Rabwah in 1961. This utterance was never published or discussed in the history of the Ahmadiyya polemic vs. the Lahori Ahmadi’s. In this utterance, MGA forcefully asserts that LAW-bearing prophets are Wajib-ul-Qatl (deserving of death). However, he didn’t include the “Ummati-Nabi’s in this category. Finally, remember, in 1891, MGA wrote that anyone who claims prophethood after Muhammad (saw) is a Kafir and a liar (see the quote in the below).

Translation of Malfuzat, Volume-5, page 610
“””Lastly, there is something, we have claimed prophethood, via conversations and discussions (with allah), these people also agree. It is these conversations/discussions (with allah), these names, allah, the almighty has, in different words, has called this prophethood (conversations/discussions with allah). However, the law-bearing prophethood, as we have told, that we never-never claimed this. We advise from the quran, and from Rasul-e-Kareem (Saw) (Muhammad), who advised that any claimant of prophethood should be considered as wajib ul qatal (deserving of death) and accursed. In this type of prophethood, the prophethood of Respected-Hazrat-Rasul-ullah (Muhammad)’s prophethood would be abrogated. We consider the claimant (of law-bearing prophethood) to be an idiot, and wajib ul qatal (deserving of death)”.
