Intro
In Barahin-i-Ahmadiyya vol. 4, MGA seems to have agreed with the miracle of the people of the cave. It’s a quranic story from Quran (18:9–26). In BA-4, MGA had left Islam as he denied the miracles of Eisa (as) and was claiming prophethood and was thus called a Kafir by his own sect, the Ahl-e-Hadith. The Quranic story of Ashab-e-Kahf comes from previous accounts by Greeks and Christians, it is also called, the story of the seven sleepers. Allah authenticated these stories in the Quran. As we peruse the writings of MGA, we only see how MGA agreed that this entire story was a miracle of Allah, and amongst the secrets of Allah. Even after MGA died, in the BA5 it is written as a wonder/secret of Allah. In 1917, in Muhammad Ali’s famous commentary on the Quran, he claimed that this 300-year period wasn’t actually the amount of years that these “people of the save” slept, instead it was a metaphor which pointed towards the 300 years that Christians were persecuted before they became triumphant. In 1988, the Qadiani-Ahmadi’s totally copied Muhammad Ali’s explanation from 1917.
