In 1893, Mirza Ghulam Ahmad and his team of writers published Barakatud Du’a, in english it would be “Blessings of Prayer”. It was translated into english in 1973 and then 2007. It’s a small booklet of barely 40 pages which technically is 3 books mashed into one. Thus, we have broken up the book review into 4 parts. It should be noted that the Lekh Ram prophecy had expired and MGA was dealing with that failure. In Part-2, MGA and his team of writers attack Sir Syed publicly for the first time ever. However, this is odd, since his “nature” beliefs have been out for 20+ years at this point. Sir Syed had been arguing for 20+ years that prayers were meaningless and whatever was predestined, would happen anyhow. MGA knew this, MGA himself had never prayed in a masjid up til age 40, nor had MGA ever went to Juma.
In Part-3, MGA attacks Lekh Ram again via a new revelation, and thus, MGA recycles the Lekh Ram prophecy.
In Part-4, MGA is begging for money from the rich people of India in exchange for prayers.
In Part-5, MGA is still begging for money for the Barahin-i-Ahmadiyya, which had ceased publication for 9 years.
Barakatud Du’a, Part-1 of the book review
MGA says that he has received a newspaper, “Anis-e-Hind”, (from Meerut, India) in this newspaper, they object to MGA’s prophecy with Lekh Ram. MGA quoted this entire scenario 14 years later in Haqiqatul Wahy. MGA asserts that Lekh Ram will not die of cholera or any other disease, which is odd since he told the world 10 years later that people in Afghanistan died of cholera after the state murder of Syed Abdul Latif.
Barakatud Du’a, Part-2 of the book review
In Part-2, MGA and his team of writers, reviewed 2 booklets by Sir Syed Ahmad Khan, Ad-Du‘a-wal-Istijabah (1893) & Tahrir fi Usulit Tafsir, which was published in 1892 from Agra.
MGA argues that prayers have an effect, whereas Sir Syed had been arguing for 25 years that prayers were meaningless, since destiny would take place. MGA quoted 40:60, and continued to make his argument. MGA goes on to say that it was prayers that got him =Muhammad (saw)(naozobillah), and thus, Sir Syed had to be wrong. MGA then quotes 11:46 and argues that even prophets have been admonished by God. MGA argues that sometimes it is not right to pray for lost sons and etc (See the case of Noah). MGA then quotes 6:41, and argues that “humility and
anguish alone is not enough for prayer to be accepted”. MGA then calls his revelations as “Wahi-e-Walayat”. MGA then tells how when he gets revelations its like something takes a hold of him and won’t let go. This was MGA’s commentary on Ad-Du‘a-wal-Istijabah.
In terms of Tahrir fi Usulit Tafsir, MGA claims that this book totally contradicts Ad-Du‘a-wal-Istijabah, MGA then argues that millions of saints and one hundred of thousands prophets proved that prayers work. MGA then proceeds to argue that when understanding Islam a person must first take the Quran. Second is the testimony of Muhammad (saw). MGA doesn’t say authentic hadith. This is very odd, since an authentic hadith, which is a testimony of Muhammad (saw) clearly claims that Eisa (As) will himself physically descend to earth in the end times. Thirdly, MGA argues that the sayings of the companions of Muhammad (Saw) have weight, however, Abu Hurraira would recite 4:159 when anyone would discuss the return of Eisa (As). MGA goes on to give 7 arguments, and the last one is that MGA is a Muhadas and thus, he has inside knowledge of Islam and should be listened to. MGA mentions the prophet Yahya (as) as he quotes 19:7 in a non-sensical argument. MGA also quotes 55:29 in a strange way. This is followed by a persian poem.
Barakatud Du’a, Part-3 of the book review
This is a one-page prophecy wherein MGA recycles the Lekh Ram prophecy, which had failed.
Barakatud Du’a, Part-4 of the book review
It is titled, “A Plea to Chiefs, Noblemen and Officers of the Government”. In this, MGA begs the rich people of India to accept him. MGA mentions Noorudin, Hakim Fadluddin Sahib and Nawab Muhammad Ali Khan Sahib of Malerkotla. MGA even mentions Taqdir-e-Mubram [irrevocable destiny], and tells people to send him money and he will pray for them, and MGA will help them avert disaster, unless it is Taqdir-e-Mubram [irrevocable destiny]. This ends with another Persian poem.
Barakatud Du’a, Part-5 of the book review
MGA makes an announcement in terms of Barahin-i-Ahmadiyya, MGA reminds people that he gave out a 10,000 rupee reward for anyone who could refute the Barahin-i-Ahmadiyya. MGA claims that the Barahin-i-Ahmadiyya will consist of nearly 4800 pages, of which about 592 pages have already been published (12%).
