Sir Thomas Arnold and the Ahmadiyya Movement

Intro
It seems that Sir Thomas Arnold (who died in 1930) is mentioned in the ROR of Feb-1937. It seems that he had an essay in the Moslem World, or someone else wrote an article in the  Moslem World which conflated Ahmadiyya and Bahaism.

Mirza Ghulam Ahmad vs. John Alexander Dowie

Intro
Check out my video on this topic herein.

It all started in the late summer of 1902, Mufti Muhammad Sadiq read some newspapers from around the world and read about John Alexander Dowie. He immediately alerted MGA and the rest of the team about the possibility of going viral over a new prayer duel (Mubahila). They immediately wrote an article in the ROR of Sep-1902 and accused Dowie of threatening Muslims with destruction. However, the British Government had legally disallowed MGA’s from doing these prayer duels just 3 years earlier in 1899. Nevertheless, the Mubahila was issued via the ROR of Sep-1902 (see page 337). They also quoted the writings of John Alexander Dowie (but didn’t give references), in these quotes, John Alexander Dowie is predicting hellish conditions for Christians who don’t accept him and all other religions (See “Fulfilment of a Grand Prophecy” by Anwar Mahmood Khan, published in 2000). We found quotes from his magazine, “Leaves of Healing” of Vol. VII, No.5, 26 May 1900 wherein John Alexander Dowie criticized Islam and a quote from Aug-25-1900 (See page 555) wherein John Alexander Dowie is praising Muslims (Ottoman Empire) for fighting off the Greeks. He praised Muslims for not drinking alcohol and eating pork (full quote in the below). In fact, he warned the Christians of the world that Islam was not dead and was strong (see page 555). This specific quote was cut off and even quoted in 2000 by Ahmadi’s in America (see “Fulfilment of a Grand Prophecy” by Anwar Mahmood Khan, page 28).

Nevertheless, in clear words, MGA and his team of writers dared Dowie to have a (See ROR of Sep-1902. They urged Dowie to pray to his God that of MGA vs. John Alexander Dowie, the liar may perish first. They insisted that Dowie publish this prayer (in his newspaper) with the signatures of 1000 men affixed to it. MGA and his team promised to do the same as soon as John Alexander Dowie did it. MGA and his team of writers go on and discredit John Alexander Dowie’s miraculous healing, since Ahmadi’s deny all miracles. In the ROR of Sep-1902, MGA and his team of writers called Jesus (as) as a weak human being (See page 344), MGA was known for insulting the God of the Christians as such. MGA even claimed in Haqiqatul Wahy that the famous Alexander Webb had wrote to him about John Alexander Dowie.

John Alexander Dowie ignored the challenge of MGA, however, he did start throwing jabs at Mirza Ghulam Ahmad for insulting Christianity as such. In the Leaves of Healing of Dec-27-1902 (see page 306), John Alexander Dowie directly addressed MGA and called him a foolish man from India who believes that Jesus died in Kashmir. He calls MGA as ignorant and raging about the falsity that Jesus died in India (full quote in the below). Meanwhile, Mirza Ghulam Ahmad and his team of writers and editors sent their prayer duel request to over 160 newspapers in America, of which half roughly 1/4th ran the story, since they hated Dowie. The ROR of Sep-1903 carried most of these newspaper clippings, it also revealed how Mufti Muhammad Sadiq was busy writing letters to newspaper trying to get them to pickup the Dowie prophecy as a story. As a result of this, on Aug-1-1903, see page 474 (Leaves of Healing), John Alexander Dowie attacked the islamic concept of heaven and again on Sep-12-1903, see page 662. In one of these newspaper clippings, MGA had sent out a “new prophecy” if Dowie continued to ignore MGA (see english ROR of Dec-1903 and Urdu ROR of Sep-1903). This new prophecy was about the city of Zion and how it would suffer a huge calamity, in fact, the ROR of Dec-1903 posted the newspaper clipping from the “The New York Commercial Advertiser of 26 Oct. 1903 wherein MGA clearly says that Zion will suffer a great calamity of Dowie doesn’t accept the challenge or continues to ignore it. Further, MGA said he would wait 7 months from Aug-1903 (which would be March of 1904), if Dowie didn’t respond, Zion would suffer a great calamity. March of 1904 came and went.

It should be noted that a few of the references that Qadiani-Ahmadi’s give have not been found, for example, (See here also and here page 10). they quote the Leaves of Healing, December 27th, 1903 and this quote:

“Can you imagine me answering to these gnats, and flies. If I were to put my foot on them, I could crush them to Death.”

After 1903, the Ahmadiyya Movement went totally silent on John Alexander Dowie until he died in 1907. In 1902-1904, through the pages of the Leaves of Healing, it become clear that there was financial incompetence at Zion which would lead to an eventual bankruptcy. John Alexander Dowie was a great man who tried to help people, in fact, in 1900, Dowie was arrested 100 times for trying to heal the sick (16:46 time stamp)(similar to Ahmadiyya use of homeopathy). Because of Dowie, this law was changed (See the testimony of Pastor Roberts Liardon herein). Also check out how Robert Pears explains how Dr. Alexander Dowie declared a holy war on Doctor’s, Devil’s and Drug’s in this era. The biggest mistake that John Alexander Dowie made was the creation of Zion, since this caused him to go almost bankrupt and stuck in the courts as his followers objected to his strange financial decisions. In 1904, his wife and children left him, which prompted him to travel to Australia (See Arthur Newcomb, “Anointed of the Lord) and seek to open a new mission, which failed, he then returned to Chicago and suffered a stroke (1905)(See Arthur Newcomb, “Anointed of the Lord) wherein different parts of his body were paralyzed, he still travelled to Mexico(See Arthur Newcomb, “Anointed of the Lord). While absent from Chicago, he was deposed from his business affairs by Wilbur G. Voliva, his chief lieutenant (See R. Harlan, John Alexander Dowie and the Christian Catholic Apostolic Church in Zion, (PhD Dissertation, University of Chicago, 1906). In this era, Dowie repented from his claims of being Elijah-3 and the first Apostle (See Arthur Newcomb, “Anointed of the Lord).

John Alexander Dowie died on March-9-1907 (See Arthur Newcomb, “Anointed of the Lord), the April-1907 edition of the ROR immediately ran to the press and proclaimed victory. The story was covered again in “Haqiqatul Wahy”, which was published on May-15-1907, MGA even drew a caricature of Dowie, this was not included in the english translation. The City of Zion continued to operate, his city was taken over by his chief lieutenant, Wilbur G. Voliva. By the 1930’s Wilbur G. Voliva had lost control of the town altogether. By the 1950’s it seems that they changed their name to the “Christ Community Church” and lost control of Zion. The Ahmadiyya Movement saw this and tried to buy property in Zion, which they finally did after the 2000’s (it took 25 years of planning). As of 2008, the “Christ Community Church” has about 3,000 members in the United States and Canada. Missionary work is conducted in Japan, Philippines, Guyana, Palestine, Indonesia, and the Navajo Nation. Missionary work continues among the African Zionists under the banner of Zion Evangelical Ministries of Africa (ZEMA). ZEMA’s goal is to convert the African Zionists from syncretism to mainstream Christian theology.

The 1936 Jalsa Salana at Qadian

Intro
The ROR of Jan-1937 tells us about the 1936 Jalsa Salana at Qadian, however, the attendance figure was not given. Ahmadiyya sources claim that loud speakers were used for the second straight year. The 2nd Khalifa gave the first speech. He alleged that new Ahmadiyya missions centers were started in Argentine, Spain, Hungary, Greece, Albania, Italy, China and Japan. The 2nd Khalifa alleged that the news of Ahmadiyya had reached aristocrat families and was progressing nicely. The 2nd Khalifa then talked about the Ahrar’s and alleged that the beef wasn’t over. The 2nd Khalifa then discussed Tehreek-e-Jadid and claimed that without the vituperation of the Ahrar, Tehreek-e-Jadid would have never been launched, and thus it was a bi-product and had brought in lots of money (allegedly). The 2nd Khalifa then reviewed the work of some of the businesses at Qadian that the jamaat owned like, carpentry, ironsmithy, bookmaking and sales department, and reported that they are all successful. The 2nd Khalifa explained how these local industries were working under Tehreek-e-Jadid. The 2nd Khalifa urged young Ahmadi men to go out in the world and spread Ahmadiyya, via working blue collar jobs or whatever. The 2nd Khalifa urged young Ahmadi men to live poor, to curtail their own costs and work forever!

Other speakers were Prof Muhammad Aslam, Dr. Mufti Muhammad Sadiq, Malik Abdur Rahman Khalid, Maulvi A.R. Nayyar, Maulvi M.Y. Arif and Maulvi Abul Ata.

The history of #Ahmadiyya in #Greece

Intro
In 2022, there are barely 5-10 Ahmadi’s in all of Greece. You can check their facebook page herein. The Ahmadiyya mission house can be found at Sperchiou 7, Athina 118 55, Greece. Imam Atta-Ul Naseer (on twitter as @ImamGreece) is the first ever Ahmadi missionary assigned to Greece. In 1936, at the Ahmadiyya Jalsa at Qadian, the 2nd Khalifa alleged that a new mission had been setup in Greece. In 2018, the first ever Jalsa Salana was held, it is easy to notice that most Ahmadi’s are refugees from Pakistan.

Mirza Ghulam Ahmad claimed that the city of Zion would suffer great calamities

Intro
John Alexander Dowie never responded to Mirza Ghulam Ahmad’s request for a Mubahila challenge, and thus, cause it to be null and void. In 1903, Mufti Muhammad Sadiq (and MGA’s team of writers) spammed all newspapers in New York, Chicago and as many as he could find with a new announcement from MGA wherein if Dowie didn’t accept the Mubahila the city of Zion would suffer a calamity (See ROR of Dec-1903, page 480 via the Commercial Advertiser of 26 Oct. 1903  and via “Fulfilment of a Grand Prophecy” by Anwar Mahmood Khan, page 51). Again, after Dowie died in 1907, in “Haqiqatul Wahy”, MGA and his team of writers told the world that since Dowie denied MGA’s request, the city of Zion would suffer a calamity (See pages 638-639). This was disproven, in 2022, Zion is a successful city of 25,000. One more note, MGA and his team of writers lied to the newspaper in America and claimed that MGA was 70 years old in 1903. That is a total lie, just 3 years prior to this, MGA and his team of writers claimed that MGA was 60.
