Mirza paved his way to claiming superiority over Jesus by belittling

(Dafi’ al-Bala,Ruhani Khaza in, Vol. 18. P. 233)
"Unto this nation God sent his promised Messiah (Mirza), who is better
than the Messiah in all his glory…I swear by God in whose hands my soul
is that if the Messiah, the son of Mary, were my contemporary he could
not have done the works that I can do, and the signs (miracles) which I
am bringing about he could never have performed."
(Haqiqat al-Wahi,Ruhani Khaza’in, Vol. 22,p. 152)
"After all when God and his apostle and all the prophets have declared

of his great achievements, then it is a devilish temptation to say, "Why

(Haqiqat al- Wahi, Ruhani Khaza’in Vol.
22. P. 159)
"Give up the mention of the son of Mary, (for) superior to him is Ghulam
