Ever wondered why the Qadiani-Ahmadi’s officially added bismillah as a verse of in front of every chapter of the Quran (except Chapter 9)? They did it in 1915 just to confuse laymen people who might search their Quran for controversial verses. This practice was not followed by the Lahori-Ahmadi’s in 1917. The Qadiani Quran’s were then given global distribution by the British Government as they hoped to make their citizens lay down and get colonized. This practice was followed in 1942, as the 2nd Khalifa ordered Malik Ghulam Farid to create urdu and english commentaries which would be ascribed to the Khalifa. They begun to be published in early 1947, the Khalifa signed off on the introduction on 2-28-1947, thus it was published in late February from Qadian, British-India. An english commentary also appeared in 1947. The introduction of these commentaries are now a book called, “Introduction to the study of the Holy Quran”. This was the first instance of the Ahmadiyya movement (Lahori or Qadiani) arguing that there were humans on Earth before Adam (as) of the Quran arrived and were Jinn. Ahmadiyya sources claim that “Tafseer-e-Kabeer” was split into two parts. The first volume of “Tafseer-e-Kabeer”, which was nine chapters along with an introduction appeared in February of 1947 and from Qadian, British-India. Volume 1 part I, containing the introduction & the first two chapters (now Vol. 1), was reprinted in 1964, and volume 1 part II, dealing with the next seven chapters (now Vol. 2) was reprinted in 1965 in Pakistan. These Tafseer’s were most likely written by the paid Mullahs who worked directly for the Khalifa. The Khalifa didn’t have a full commentary written on the Quran, only about half, per the introduction of the 1988 edition of the 5 volume commentary by Malik Ghulam Farid (died in 1977), Mirza Basheer ud Din’s “Tafsir-e-Kabir” only covered Chapters 1, 2, 10-29 and 78–114, he missed Chapters 3-9 and 30-77, he missed 53 chapters and purposely, since most of the controversial verses about Jesus and prophethood were contained therein, as well as the famous verse of Ismuhu Ahmad and the famous verse of Chapter 62:3 that #ahmadis quotes as they claim that MGA was the second coming of Muhammad (saw)(nauzobillah). The first edition of “Tafseer-e-Sagheer” was printed in Dec 1957. The final volume was published in 1979. Ahmadiyya sources claim that the first ever 5-volume english commentary was published in 1962 and an abridged version showed up in 1969, however, these are missing from the records. In 1988, a new 5-volume commentary of the Holy Quran was published with Malik Ghulam Farid‘s name on it. He had died in 1977, thus, this was dubious. Nevertheless, this became the official commentary that all Ahmadi’s in the west read. In 2018, another 5-volume commentary was published and can be found on alislam.org. This entire scenario was also discussed in the ROR of July-1932.
Alleged explanation by the 2nd Khalifa
Why is Bismillahir Rahmanir Raheem counted as the first verse?
by Farhan Iqbal, Missionary, Ahmadiyya Muslim Community Canada
Discussing this Hadith, Musleh Mau’ud writes, “This Hadith proves that the Bismillah which is written at the beginning of all Surahs is based on revelation of God and a part of the Holy Quran, not outside of it” (Tafseer-e-Kabeer, vol. 1, p. 12).
