62:3 of the Quran only means that the Muhammad’s message is universal (See Tafsir ibn Kathir) and thus all people of Earth can become Muslims. Ibn Kathir’s famous Quranic commentary even quotes the famous hadith (which Ahmadi’s also quote) and explains how it refers to all non-Arabs who will eventually believe in the truth of the Prophet, nothing more and nothing less. The non-Arabs would even be able to reach the heights of islamic, even if it was as far as the Ath-Thurayya (Pleiades). Further, there is a famous hadith from Bukhari wherein Muhammad (Saw) explains this hadith and says had faith reached the Pleiades, even non arabs could reach it, however, MGA purposely mis-translated this hadith to mean, “bring it down”. Akber Choudhry as fully explained it here in this video. Akber explains how the word “Lau na La who” means, “can reach it”, he also explains how MGA changed it to mean, “bring it down”. By 1891, MGA and his team of writers were asserting that this hadith should be translated as: “will descend with it to the earth”.
In 1882, in the Barahin-i-Ahmadiyya Vol. 3, MGA asserted to have been given a divine revelation wherein his God told him, “”Had faith ascended to the Pleiades he would have reached there and brought it down.”” (See page 212, online english edition), thus, MGA was laying the groundwork for his all of his claims. In the BA-4, the same type of revelation exists. It was used again in 1891, in MGA’s book, Fath-e-Islam (Victory of Islam), however, in all of these instances MGA was only using this verse and hadith to assert that he was a reformer. And again in Hamamatul Bushra (1893).
In 1898, MGA and his team of writers asserted that MGA being the Promised Messiah had support from the Quran (See Kitab ul Barriya, in the below). Before 1898, MGA and his team don’t seem to have ever used this argument. In the same year, in Ayyam-us-Sulh (written in 1898 and published in 1899), MGA and his team of writers argued that this verse also meant that the followers of the Messiah were just like the early sahaba of Muhammad (saw)(nauzobillah), they received true dreams and divine revelation. In 1899, MGA argued that anyone could be a prophet, it was easy.
The year 1900 and early 1901 was a transitional phase in MGA’s prophethood (see Haqiqatun Nubuwat, 1915). In the Khutbah ilhamiya, MGA quoted 62:3 and claimed to be the second coming of Muhammad (saw)(nauzobillah), however, this book wasn’t published until 1902
When MGA finally claimed prophethood via the announcement of Nov. 1901 (Correction of an Error), he quoted 62:3 (62:4 in the Qadiani Quran) and emphatically declared himself as the second coming of Muhammad (saw)(Nauzobillah). A few sentences later, MGA called him the perfect reflection (zill)/baruz of Muhammad (saw)(nauzobillah). MGA claims that he was named Muhammad and Ahmad 20 years ago in the Barahin, and was also named “The Holy Prophet” in that era. Thus, MGA was asserting that he had been a prophet/messenger already for 20 years, he was also claiming to have been the second coming of Muhammad (Saw)(nauzobillah) for 20 years. In 1902, in Tohfa-Golarvia, MGA and his team of writers again asserted that MGA=Muhammad (saw)(nauzobillah). After MGA died, these arguments seem to have died off. However, in 1915, the Qadiani-Ahmadi’s revived them, specifically the sons of MGA began to aggressively assert that MGA=Muhammad (saw)(nauzobillah), whereas the Lahori-Ahmadi’s never mentioned this concept ever again. In fact, in Muhammad Ali’s famous commentary of 1917 on 62:3, he refused to mention how MGA wrote that Muhammad (Saw) (nauzobillah)=MGA. However, after 1919, even the Qadiani jamaat stopped making this argument, i.e., Muhammad (saw)(naozobillah)=MGA. In the famous 5-volume commentary of Malik Ghulam Farid (MGF), which was published in 1988. MGF admits that this verse only means, that the message of Muhammad (Saw) wasn’t only for the Arabs, it was universal, however, he again asserted that MGA was the second coming of Muhammad (Saw)(nauzobillah).
This isn’t all, there are many other verses of the Quran that MGA and his team of writers presented as they argued for the continuation of prophethood, in fact, in 1901, in “Correction of an Error”, MGA quoted 1:6 and was claiming that Muslims pray daily to be given the same blessings as the prophets, a few years later, he would connect 4:69 with 1:6. In 1915, after the split in the Ahmadiyya movement, the sons of MGA connected 2:4 (2:5 in the Qadiani numbering system, with 1:6 and 4:69, they also added 7:35 and 61:6, as they argued emphatically that MGA was a prophet and had sanction from the Quran. They also argued that MGA had initially believed per 4:64 that prophets didn’t follow other prophets, they only followed Allah, however, after 1901, MGA discovered a new type of prophethood, that had never existed in the Quran and a nabi could be a follower. MGA also began to claim to be greater than Esa (as)(nauzobillah) in this era.

The famous hadith by Salman Farsi which explains how any species can become good Muslims
Narrated Abu Huraira:
While we were sitting with the Prophet Surat Al-Jumu’a was revealed to him, and when the Verse, “And He (Allah) has sent him (Muhammad) also to other (Muslims)…..’ (62.3) was recited by the Prophet, I said, “Who are they, O Allah’s Apostle?” The Prophet did not reply till I repeated my question thrice. At that time, Salman Al-Farisi was with us. So Allah’s Apostle put his hand on Salman, saying, “If Faith were at (the place of) Ath-Thuraiya (pleiades, the highest star), even then (some men or man from these people (i.e. Salman’s folk) would attain it.”
The same hadith from Sahih Muslim
Ibn al-Hajjaj narrates this hadith in the chapter: “The merits of the people of Persia“:
Abu Huraira reported Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) as saying: “If the deen were at the Pleiades, even then a person from Persia would have taken hold of it, or one amongst the Persian descent would have surely found it”.
Then follows the consequent hadith:
Abu Huraira reported: We were sitting in the company of Allah’s Apostle (may peace be upon him) that Sura al-Jumu’a was revealed to him and when he recited (these words) : “Others from amongst them who have not yet joined them.” A person amongst them (those who were sitting there) said: “Allah’s Messenger!” But Allah’s Apostle (may peace be upon him) made no reply, until he questioned him once, twice or thrice. And there was amongst us Salman the Persian. The Apostle of Allah (may peace be upon him) placed his hand on Salman and then said: “Even if faith were near the Pleiades, a man from amongst these would surely find it”.
In the Barahin-i-Ahmadiyya Vol. 3, MGA asserted that his God told him, “”Had faith ascended to the Pleiades he would have reached there and brought it down.”” (See page 212, online english edition), thus, MGA was laying the groundwork for his all of his claims.

“””Knowledge of Holy Qur’an and Promised Messiah
This is the wealth concerning which it had been prophesied that the Messiah would distribute it so much that people will have their fill of it. The prophecy does not mean that the Messiah would collect together material wealth concerning which it has been said:
‘Your possessions and children are but a trial.’—al-Taghabun, 64:16
and that he would deliberately put people on trial by distributing wealth among them. In his first advent also, the Messiah felt no attraction towards worldly wealth. He has stated in the Gospel that the property of a believer are not gold and silver, but are the jewels of verities and understanding. This is the property that is bestowed by God Almighty on the Prophets, which they distribute. It is concerning this property that the Holy Prophet [peace and blessings of Allah be on him] said:
‘I am a distributor and Allah is the Bestower.’
It is stated clearly in the Ahadith that the Promised Messiah would come into the world when knowledge of the Qur’an will be lost and ignorance will prevail. That is the time which is referred to in the Hadith:
If faith ascends to the Pleiades it will be brought down by a man of Persia.
It has been revealed to me in a vision that the climax of that age will begin in the Hijri year which corresponds to the value of the letters of the verse:
‘It is We who determine its taking away.’—al-Mu’minun, 23:19
which amounts to 1274.
Consider this well and do not pass over it in haste and supplicate God that He should open your minds to it. A little reflection will make you understand the prophecy contained in the Hadith that in the latter days the Qur’an will be taken away from the world, its knowledge will be lost, ignorance will prevail and the eagerness and sweetness of faith will depart from the hearts. Among them is the Hadith that if faith will ascend to the Pleiades and will disappear from the earth, a man of the Persians will extend his hand and will bring it down. This Hadith shows clearly that when ignorance, faithlessness and error, which are described as smoke in the other Ahadith, will become widespread and true faith will become so rare as if it had been drawn up to the skies, and the Holy Qur’an will be abandoned as if it had been raised towards God Almighty, at that time, a man of Persia will take hold of the faith from the Pleiades and will descend with it to the earth. Be sure, therefore, that he is the son of Mary who was to descend.””

“””And, as I have already said, the object of including these verses in the booklet was to try
and establish Sayyid Ahmad Sahib as one of the Mahdis. Undoubtedly, people have greatly erred in understanding the Ahadith that mention the prophecy of the Holy Prophetsa about the coming of a person named Mahdi. In general, it has been erroneously assumed that the word ‘Mahdi’ invariably refers to ‘Muhammad son of ‘Abdullah’ who has been mentioned in some Ahadith. But a careful study reveals that the Holy Prophetsa has foretold the coming of several Mahdis. One of them has been called Sultan-e-Mashriqas in Hadith; he has to appear in an eastern country, like India; while the country of his origin must be Faras (Persia). In fact, it is he concerning whom is
written in a Hadith that even if faith ascended to the Pleiades, he would bring it back even from there. Yet another sign concerning him is that he will be a farmer. In short, it is a definite and proven fact that several Mahdis are mentioned in the Sihah Sittah, and one of them will
appear in the Eastern countries. But some people have been confused by the amalgamation of these Ahadith. However, the point which deserves most attention is that the time of advent of one Mahdias, as foretold by the Holy Prophetsa is the same in which we live, and he has called
him the Mujaddid of the 14th century (Hijra) as, God willing, I shall later elaborate. Anyway, though it is definitely clear that a great Mujaddid will appear in India at the beginning of the 14th century [Hijra], it is quite arbitrary to declare that this prediction applies to Sayyid Ahmad Sahib, because, as I have already pointed out, Sayyid Sahib did not even live to see the 14th century (Hijra).””””

“””Salvation Depends on Faith
I affirm repeatedly and emphatically that if religious doctrines had been self-evident like philosophical propositions and mathematical equations, they would certainly not have been considered the basis for achieving salvation. Dear brethren, rest assured that salvation depends
upon faith, and faith is related to the unseen. If the underlying reality of things had not been concealed, there would have been no faith, and without faith there would be no salvation. It is faith alone which is the means of winning Divine pleasure. It is a ladder for achieving nearness to God, and a spring for washing away the rust of sin. We are dependent upon God Almighty, and it is faith that discloses this dependence. We are dependent on God Almighty for our salvation and our deliverance from every ill. Such deliverance can be achieved only through faith. The remedy for the torments of this life and the hereafter is faith. When, through the power of faith, we find that a difficulty is not impossible of resolution, it is resolved for us. It is through the power of faith that we are able to achieve that which appears to be impossible and contrary to reason. It is through the power of faith that miracles and extraordinary events are witnessed, and what is considered impossible happens.
It is through faith that we are convinced of the existence of God. He remained hidden from philosophers, and thinkers could not discover Him; but faith leads to God even a humble one who is clothed in rags, and enables him to converse with Him. The power of faith is the means of contact between a believer and the True Beloved. This power leads a poor humble one who is rejected of mankind to the palace of holiness, which is the throne of Allah and, gradually removing all intervening obstructions, reveals the countenance of the Eternal Beloved.
Arise then, and seek faith and burn the dry and useless tomes of philosophy; only through faith shall you achieve blessings. One particle of faith is better than a thousand volumes of philosophy. Faith is not only the means of achieving salvation in the hereafter, but also provides deliverance from the torments and curses of this life. We find deliverance from soul-melting sorrows through the blessings of faith. It is faith through which a perfect believer finds comfort and joy in the midst of anxiety, agony, torment and sorrow, and when he is confronted with failure in all directions and all the familiar doors appear locked and barred. Perfect faith removes all feeling of distance and separation. There is no wealth that can be compared to faith. In this world everyone, with the exception of the believer, is overwhelmed with grief. In this world everyone is afflicted with the agony of loss and unfulfilled desires, except a believer.
Faith! how sweet are your fruits and how fragrant are your flowers; praise be to Allah, how wonderful are your blessings and what beautiful lights shine in you. No one can reach the Pleiades unless he is inspired by you. It has pleased God Almighty that now you should arrive and
philosophy should depart. Nothing can stop His grace.”””

“””I see that those who wish to be the followers of nature and the law of nature have been offered a good opportunity by God Almighty of accepting my claim, inasmuch as they are not confronted by the difficulties in which our other opponents are involved. They know well that Jesusas has died and at the same time they have to confess that the prophecy contained in the Ahadith about the appearance of the Promised Messiah is among the long-established verities that cannot be denied by any reasonable person. Thus they are left with no other option but to accept that the Promised Messiah will be one of the Muslims. They are, however, entitled to inquire as to
why they should believe in me as the Promised Messiah, and on what grounds do I base this claim? The answer is that all the indications mentioned in the Holy Qur’an and the Ahadith with regard to the Promised Messiah have been combined in me and in my age and in my country; as, for instance, the age and the country and the town in which the Promised Messiah was to appear and the circumstances which called specially for his advent, and the earthly and heavenly occurrences which had been specified as indications of his advent, and the knowledge and
learning that were to be his characteristic, have all been combined in me. In addition to these, and to provide further satisfaction, I have been strengthened by Heavenly support.
As I was invested with authority for the Christians, I was,
therefore, named the Son of Mary. Heaven is showing signs and the
earth proclaims that this is the time. These two witnesses stand firm
in my support.
To illustrate: The indication given in the text of the Holy Qur’an proves that he Holy Prophetsa appeared in the likeness of Mosesas, and that the chain of Khilafat after the Holy Prophetsa would be very similar to the chain of Khilafat established after Mosesas. Just as Prophet Mosesas was promised that in the latter days—i.e., when the Prophethood of Bani Isra’il
would reach its limit and Bani Isra’il would be divided into many sects, each contradicting the other, so much so that some would declare others to be infidels—God Almighty would raise a successor, i.e., Prophet Jesusas, to support the faith of Mosesas; he would gather the scattered sheep of Israel, and bring sheep and wolves together at one place, and he would be an Arbiter for all the sects of Bani Isra’il, and he would iron out their differences and remove
all rancour and ill-will; likewise, a similar promise was made by the Holy Qur’an in the verse:
Others from among them who have not yet joined them.—Al- Jumu‘ah, 62:4
Many details of this are set out in the Ahadith. For instance, it is mentioned that Muslims would become divided into as many sects as the Jews; they would contradict each other and brand each other as infidels; and would increase in hatred and enmity towards each other, till the time when the Promised Messiah would appear as an Arbiter. He would remove all rancour and hostility. During his time, the wolf and the sheep will be brought together. All historians are aware that, at the time of the advent of Jesusas, the Israelite sects were ridden with dissension
and labelled each other as heretics and infidels. I have also appeared at a time when inner dissension has multiplied and each sect has started calling others Kafir. At such a time of dissension, the Muslims were in need of an Arbiter. God has, therefore, sent me as one.””””

“””Resemblance of the Jama‘at to the Companions of the Holy Prophetsa
Just consider whether, during the last thirteen hundred years, anyone has experienced a time which is so similar to the time of the Holy Prophetsa. Our Jama‘at, which has been established in this age, resembles in many respects the Companionsra of the Holy Prophetsa. Our people witness miracles and signs such as the Companionsra witnessed and gain light and certainty
from fresh heavenly signs and support as the Companionsra did. They endure, in the cause of Allah, the mockery and derision and reproaches of people, and bear persecution and boycotts, just as the Companionsra endured. They lead pure lives helped by clear heavenly signs and supports and wise teachings, as did the Companionsra. There are many among them who weep during their Prayers as the Companionsra wept—so profusely that their places of prostration were dampened. Many of them see true dreams and are honoured with Divine revelations, as was the case with the Companionsra. Many of them spend their hard-earned money in promoting the activities of the Jama‘at, purely for the sake of winning the pleasure of God Almighty, as did the Companionsra. Many among them keep death in mind and are gentle of heart and tread the path of true righteousness, as was the practice of the Companionsra. They are the party of God who are supported by God Himself and whose hearts He is purifying daily and whose bosoms He is filling with the wisdom of faith and whom He is drawing towards Himself through heavenly signs, as He did with the Companionsra. In short, this Jama‘at exhibits all those signs which are implied in the verse:
Others from among them.— Al-Jumu‘ah, 62:4
The Word of God Almighty was bound to be fulfilled.””””

“””Since Jesusas is a Prophet, the same objection—of the breaking of the Seal of Khatamun
Nabiyyin—will be raised against him as is raised against me. But I say that, after the Holy Prophetsa, who was Khatamun Nabiyyin, there can be no objection whatsoever to my being addressed as Rasul or Nabi, nor does this break the Seal. I have stated repeatedly that, in accordance with the verse:
And among others from among them who have not yet joined them.—Al-Jumu‘ah, 62:4
As Buruz, I am the same Prophet Khatamun Nabiyyinsa. It was twenty years ago, in Brahin-e-
Ahmadiyya, that God named me ‘Muhammadsa’ and ‘Ahmadsa’ and declared me to be the Holy Prophetsa. Thus, the status of the Holy Prophetsa as Khatamun Nabiyyin is by no means in peril due to my Prophethood, since the Zill is never independent of the original. Since I am Muhammadsa by way of Zill, therefore, the Seal of Khatamun Nabiyyin remains intact, and the Prophethood of Muhammadsa remains confined to Muhammadsa. This means that in all
events it is Muhammadsa who remains the Prophet and no one else.
Since I am the Holy Prophetsa by way of Buruz, and all his perfections and excellences, including his Prophethood, are reflected in the mirror of my Zilliyyat, where then is the person who claimed to be an independent Prophet?
If you still do not accept me, then you should know that it is written in your own books of Hadith that the Promised Mahdi will be like the Holy Prophetsa, both in character and appearance. His name will correspond to the name of the Holy Prophetsa—which means that he will be given the name Muhammad and Ahmad; and that he will belong to the Holy Prophet’ssa household.”””

Promised Messiah from Among the Muslims
I have already proved the death of the Messiahas and his spiritual exaltation….Now, after the death of the Messiahas, the next question is, what are the authorities contained in the Qur’an and Ahadith and other sources from which it is established that the Promised Messiah will appear from among the Ummah? I will set out these authorities below, please read them with care. Hopefully, God the Compassionate will guide you.
One of the arguments which prove that the Messiah who was promised to appear in this Ummah would be from among the Muslims is this Hadith set out both in Bukhari and Muslim and _____________________________________.
It means that he will be your Imam from among you. Since this Hadith relates to Jesusas and it is he who has been described in this Hadith as Hakam and ‘Adal [Arbiter and Judge], it follows, therefore, that the word Imam also refers to him. It is true that the words ‘from among you’ were addressed to the Companions of the Holy Prophetsa, but we know that none of them claimed to be the Promised Messiah. This, therefore, shows that the words ‘from among you’ are meant for
someone who, in the knowledge of God Almighty, would be a substitute for the Companions and is the one referred to in the verse:
And among others from among them who have not yet joined them.—Al-Jumu‘ah, 62:4
This verse shows that he will be instructed through the spiritual power of the Holy Prophetsa, and will, in this sense, be one of the Companions. This verse is further explained by the Hadith:
Had faith ascended to the Pleiades, it would be brought down by a man from among the Persians.
Here the quality which was particularized in the Promised Messiah and Mahdi has been attributed to this man from Persia. This quality is to replenish the earth with justice after it has been filled with wrongdoing and has become empty of faith and the belief in the Unity of God. Thus this man is the Promised Messiah and Mahdi; and I am he.
Just as the prophesied eclipse of the sun and the moon in the month of Ramadan has not occurred during the time of any other person claiming to be Mahdi, likewise, during the thirteen hundred years that have elapsed since the time of the Holy Prophetsa, no one has claimed, on the basis of Divine revelation, to be ‘the Man of Persia’ about whom the Hadith says that
he will bring faith down from heaven.””

“”Each prophet has one advent but our Prophet, the blessings of Allaah and peace be on him, has two advents and the categorical statement on this is the noble verse ‘wa aakhareena minhum lamma yalhaqoo bihim’ [And others of them who have not joined them] [Quraan 62:4]. All great Quraanic commentators write in the explanation of this verse that the final group of this nation, that is, Maseeh Mau`ood’s community, will be colored as [i.e., have the characteristics of] the Companions [of Muhammad] and like the Companions [of Muhammad], with whom Allaah be pleased, without any difference, will obtain grace and guidance from His Holiness [Muhammad], the blessings of Allaah and peace be on him. … His Holiness [Muhammad], the blessings of Allaah and peace be on him, has two advents or, in other words, it may be stated that His Holiness’ second coming into the world, the blessings of Allaah and peace be on him, in a ‘buroozee’ [projected or manifested or displayed] manner, had been promised, which [promise] was fulfilled by the appearance of the Maseeh Mau`ood and Mahdee Ma’hood [Mirza Ghulam Ahmad].”””

We have also recently found MGA (and his team of writers) arguing in 1906, via MGA’s book, “Chashma-Masihi”, that in a famous verse of Surah Fatiha wherein Muslims pray to Allah to be guided, they are actually asking Allah to be guided like the prophets and siddiqin (which is a direct inference to 4:69)(See pages 62-65). Thus, MGA would always connect the ability to achieve prophethood with the daily prayer, which is ridiculous, since prophethood is a gift, not something achieved (see 40:15)(See Muhammad Ali, Prophethood in Islam also). However, in Chashma Masihi, MGA doesn’t quote 4:69, nor have we found this quote in any other book after 1903.

“”As per the decree of Minhum (per Quran 62:3), it has been established that similar to the followers of previous prophets being Naaji (heavenly group), all others are Naari (hellfire group), Kuffar and outside the realm of Islam. And, to include the deniers of the first coming of Prophet Muhammad (ﷺ) within the fold of Islam is an insult to him and a mockery of the Quranic verses. Hazrat Masih Maud drew a comparison between the first and second coming, likening them to Hilal and Badr in his Khutbah Ilhamia. This makes it mandatory to acknowledge that the Kuffar of the second coming have surpassed in their kufr those kuffar who rejected the first coming.””
“”Pas minhum ke ammar se yeh bhi wazeha ho gaya ke jaise pehle nabi ke sahabi sab naaji groh hain or dosre sab naari firqay kaffir or daira e islam se khaarij thehre. Or anhazarat saw ki baas e awwal main aap ke munkro ko daakhil e islam samjhna yeh anhazrat ki hatak or ayatullah se istahzaa hai. Halanke khutbah ilhamia main hazrat masih e maood ne anhazrat ki baase ahwal or saani ki bahmi nishat ko hilal or badr se nisbat se taabir farmayaa hai. Jis se laazam aata hai ke baas e saani ke kaffir kuffr main baas e awwal ke kaffiro se bohat badh kar hain.”””

“The entity of the promised Masih (Mirza), in the sight of Allah is the entity of the Holy Prophet (SAW). In other words, in the records of Allah there is no duality or difference between the promised Masih and the Holy Prophet (SAW). Rather they both share the same eminence, the same rank, the same status and the same name . …”.
Kalimat-ul-Fasl , P. 113, by Mirza Basheer Ahmad Qadiani, 1916
“Every messenger was granted accomplishments and perfections according to his capacity and performance in varying degrees, but the Promised Messiah (Mirza Ghulam) was granted prophethood when he had attained all the accomplishments of the Prophethood of Muhammad(SAW) and was qualified to be called a shadow prophet. Thus, this shadow prophethood did not make the steps of the Promised Messiah lag behind, but it pushed them forward to such an extent that it brought him on equal footing with the holy Prophet(SAW). “
“Thus does any doubt remain that God has sent Muhammad (pbuh) again in Qadian to fulfill his promise?” (Kalimat-ul-Fasl by Mirza Basheer Ahmad, Review of Religions, P.105, No.3, Vol.14)
“Maseeh Mowud (The Promised Messiah) is not a separate thing from holy Prophet(pbuh), but it is he himself who has come again in this world in incarnated form….. Therefore is there any doubt that God has reincarnated Muhammad again in Qadian?”
(Kalimat-ul-Fasl, P.104-105, Review of Religions, Qadian, March 1915)
Al-Fadl, May 28, 1928, Qadian
“Blessed is the head of the 14th century whence he descended like the moon through darkness. Muhammad has now come reincarnated as Ahmad Mujtaba (Mirza Ghulam) to help the (Muslim) Ummah. The reality of the rebirth became manifest to me when the Mirza declared to be Mustafa (Muhammad) incarnate.”
Ibn Hazam is mentioned in the ROR of Jan-1942, MGA claimed in Malfuzat that Ibn Hazam claimed to have become Muhammad (Saw) (naozobilah), and MGA was claiming that same.
MGA argues that anyone can become like Muhammad (Saw) (astagfarullah).
The ROR of Feb-1942 reports that Maulana Zillur Rahman gave a speech on Jan-11-1942 in terms of the second coming of Muhammad (Saw)(astagfarullah) at the Ochterloney Monument at the Calcutta Maidan. He said that the second coming of Muhammad (Saw)(astagfarullah) was to be more comprehensive and more extensive from the point of view of propagation of Islam than his first advent. He also said that if the people of Bengal would repent and become Ahmadi, maybe the impending Japanese invasion would be avoided.
The ROR of Dec-1943 alleges the Nawab Siddiq Hassan Khan said that 62:3 referred to the followers of the Mahdi would represent the companions of Muhammad (saw), whereas, the Mahdi himself would represent Muhammad (saw).

“””Two Aspects of the perfection of Faith
It should be borne in mind that all bounties and the perfection of the faith that were bestowed on the Holy Prophetsa, had two aspects: first, the perfection of the guidance, and secondly, the completion of the propagation of the guidance. The perfection of the guidance from every aspect took place through his first advent, and the completion of the propagation of the guidance
was accomplished through his second advent. The verse of the Surah Al-Jumu‘ah:
Others from among them… Al-Jumu‘ah, 62:4
which refers to another people who will be prepared through his grace and instruction. This makes it clear that he will have a second advent, and this advent— which is by way of reflection—is now taking place. Thus this is the time of the completion of the propagation of the guidance.”””
In the famous 5-volume commentary of Malik Ghulam Farid (MGF), which was published in 1988. MGF admits that this verse only means, that the message of Muhammad (Saw) wasn’t only for the Arabs, it was universal, however, he again asserted that MGA was the second coming of Muhammad (Saw)(nauzobillah).
