Muslims don’t normally claim to being a Mujadid. Muslims have been called as Mujadids after their death by their contemporaries. The famous term Mujadid comes from one single hadith in Abu Daud. Ahmadi sources have always claimed that in March of 1882, he received a revelation informing him that God had anointed him as the mujaddid, or reformer, for the 14th century of Islam. However, there is no reference. In 1891, in MGA’s book, Taudih-e-Maram (Elucidation of Objectives in english), on the cover of the book, MGA wrote, “Mujadid of the time” (Mujadid e Zaman), “Messiah of the time” (Maseeh e Zaman). A year later, in “Nishan Asmani” (1892), MGA again asserts to the be the Mujadid of the 14th century. MGA also claimed that he had been claiming this for 11 years, which back-dates to 1880-81, however, this is a lie, MGA never made any announcement wherein he claimed to be a Mujadid.It should be noted that in 1891, MGA claimed that it was written in ahadith that the mujaddid of the 14th century would be the Messiah, however, this is a lie.
By 1904, MGA was calling himself the Mujaddid of the millennium (see Lecture Sialkot). Nevertheless, by 1907, MGA was calling himself as the LAST mujadid (see Haqiqatul Wahi). Even in the 1960’s, with the publishing of Malfuzat, MGA allegedly said Mujadids will keep coming. Mirza Basheer ud Din Mahmud Ahmad’s references to the concept of Mujadidiyat haven’t been found as of yet. However, in 1977, Mirza Nasir Ahmad totally denied the concept of Mujadids.

In Lecture Sialkot, MGA calls himself the Mujaddid of the last millennium.
Haqiqatul Wahi, online english edition
“”””Moreover, it is a universally agreed tenet among the Ahl-e-Sunnat that the last Mujaddid of this ummah is the Promised Messiah, who shall appear in the Latter Days. Now, the point at issue is whether these are the Latter Days or not. Both the Jews and the Christians agree that these, indeed, are the Latter Days.”””””
Al Fazl Qadian August 14, 1923, page 9
K2 insists that a mujaddid must come at the head of every century.
In a Majlis-e-Irfan sitting, the 2nd Khalifa was asked on April 8th, 1947 (See Al-Fazal): Can there be a Mujadid in the presence of a Khalifa? He replied”
“””The status of the caliph is higher than that of the Mujadid, as he has to enforce the law of the Quran and to establish the faith. How could a Mujadid appear in the presence of an upright caliph? The Mujadid appears only when faith is contaminated and deteriorates through errors and innovations.”””
Malfoozat volume 8, page 119, old edition
On September 29, 1905 MGA said mujadid’s can keep come till qayamat not end with him.
As the 14th century was coming to an end…Mirza Nasir Ahmad (as the 3rd Khalifa) told Ahmadi’s that there would be no more Mujadids. This was at the MKA-Ijtema at Rabwah.
