Jesus’ Character Belittled by Mirza

The great character of I`sa  stands out from the above mentioned quotes, and his sublime personality has unfolded itself to us, as we progress through it, leaving no doubt whatsoever of the high status occupied by this great prophet, I`sa .

In complete defiance, and challenge to the above mentioned Divine Revelations and their implication, Mirza Ghulam A. Qadiani invented a new belief and a new faith, by declaring that Jesus was a liar, a drunken, an illiterate, a foul-mouthed speaker, [ALLAH FORBID] who died in Kashmir, and that he (Mirza) was the Promised Messiah. The true believers are naturally disgusted by this claim because nothing about Mirza fits the details prophesied about the return of Jesus. As a result to this claim, people demanded that he should perform miracles like the former Messiah (Jesus).

To verify his claim, at this point, Mirza began defaming our beloved prophet I`sa (Jesus)  and lost no opportunity to deny the great miracles, mission and the upright character of Jesus. In trying to prove his own excellence over Jesus, Mirza wrote the following disrespectful, despicable and shocking obscenities, that are presented below to the respectful reader, as an illustration and an eye opener.

Mirza says:

"It appears from the Gospel of Matthew, that he was hard of understanding and had a coarse brain. He did not consider epilepsy to be a disease just like the illiterate women and commoners; rather he thought it was the spell of a jinn. Of course, he was in the habit of using filthy and abusive language. He was short tempered who lost his temper in very trivial matters and he could not restrain himself from being carried away by his sentiments. But personally I do not regret these actions of his because while he swore and used abusive language, the Jews compensated themselves by using their physical force (used to beat him). It should also be remembered that he was in the habit of telling lies. The predictions about which he claimed to be found in the Old Testament about his own appearance are not traceable in that book. These predictions merely refer to others and had already come true even before his birth." (Zamima Anjuman-e-Atham, Qadian, 1922, pp. 5-6.)

"It is strange that Jesus, peace be upon him, did not act in accordance with his own teachings. He cursed the fig tree even before seeing it while he taught others to pray for others. He asked others not to call people idiots but he himself exceeded in using abusive language to the extent that he called Jewish saints as bastards and called names of Jewish scholars in all his sermons and assigned to them bad epithets. It is the duty of a normal teacher to display excellent moral behaviour. Can this imperfect teaching, on which he himself did never act, be from God?"

(Chashmah-I-Masihi, p.346 Qadian, 9th March, 1906).
"Christians have attributed a large number of miracles to him(Jesus Christ). But the fact is that he could perform no miracle. Ever since the day he abused those who demanded miracles from him and called them scoundrels and bastards the respectable and noble people parted with him for they did not want to become scoundrels and bastards by asking him to produce miracles." (Zamimah Anjame Atham, Qadian, 1922.p6) In the above statements Mirza has accused I`sa u the noble prophet to be a person of less understanding and one who was illiterate, who used foul and abusive language and would loose control over himself. He had the habit of lying and did not practise what he preached. "ALLAH FORBID."

In reality these were the habits of Mirza rather than I`sa , and seems that Mirza is trying to verify his own bad habits and defects.

In defence of Mirza the Qadiani’s generally maintain that he had merely used what is written in the Christian scriptures about Jesus to defeat the Christians missionaries in argument. But this is merely a pretence.

Mirza’s book, Daf-e`-Bala, from which we have also quoted, is meant mainly for Muslim theologists. Anyone can read the whole book and decide for himself. Besides, the vulgar and shameful acts which have been attributed to Jesus in it are, according to Mirza, so real that it is because of them that Jesus has not been referred to as Hasoor (circumspect) in the Quran. Mirza cites this instance of omission in the Quran as a proof of the veracity of these accusations. How can these therefore, be explained as something based upon what the Christians scriptures contain?

Mirza Ghulam A. Qadiani made many other accusations about the character of Jesus to improve his own image as the Promised Messiah. Despite the fact that no authentic religious source suggests that Jesus was foul-mouthed, Mirza had the tenacity to say:

"Jesus had the habit of uttering obscenities and frequently using foul language."
(Zamimah Anjuman-i-Atham, Ruhani Khaza’in, Vol. 11, p. 289)
It should be remembered that he (Jesus) had also to some extent the habit of lying.
(Zamimah Anjuman-i-AthamRuhani Khaza’in, Vol. 11, p. 289)
A cunning and wicked (person) who had the soul of the Messiah from head to toe.
(Zamimah Anjuman-i-Atham, Ruhani Khaza’in, Vol. 11, p. 289 )
In the following remarks, Mirza slandered those who believe in Jesus by deviously thrusting the blame of his obscene insults on Christians, as he says in reply to the following question: "What is your opinion about the character of the Messiah? (It is that Jesus) was an alcoholic and gluttonous person, neither abstinent nor a pious worshipper, nor a reality seeker. He was a proud and self-conceited claimant of Divinity."
(Nurul-Quran, Ruhani Khaza’in, Vol. 9, p. 387)
"The root cause of all the damage that alcohol consumption has had on the Europeans was that Jesus used to drink alcohol, perhaps because of some disease or an old habit."
(Kashti-i Nuh, Ruhani Khaza’in, Vol. 19, p. 71)
Mirza would often engage in self-admiration. For example, while expressing his own reliance on God for the cure of his ailments he used this occasion as an opportunity to criticize Jesus. The following remark of Mirza is a testimony of his evil objectives: "Once a friend advised me that opium is good for diabetes so there is no harm in taking opium for the purpose of treatment. I replied, "Thank you very much for your sympathetic advice. But if I get into the habit of taking opium, I am afraid the people will mock that the first Messiah (Jesus) was an alcoholic and the second a drug addict." (Nasim-i-Da’wat, Ruhani Khaza’in, Vol. 19, p. 434) It is well known that the messages of God have often been discarded, defamed and rejected, however Mirza never spared an opportunity of capitalizing on these accusations to prove that Jesus was worthless. He singled out Jesus for mudslinging because he viewed Jesus as the one competing with him for Messiahship. One can witness his irrational and desperate attempts to improve his own public image by digging out slanderous remarks about Jesus. Mirza would then dwell on these remarks to eventually draw the most negative conclusions. The following demonstrates that Mirza liberally seconded the false accusations about Jesus. "Jesus could not portray himself as a pious man because people knew that he was a gluttonous alcoholic."
(Satt BachanRuhani Khaza’in, Vol. 10, p. 296)
In the next two accusations, Mirza’s slanderous imagination has really passed beyond the limit of decency. These atrocious and blasphemous remarks clearly demonstrate Mirza’s shameful distortion of the Biblical episodes as a way to deride our beloved Jesus: Jesus had an inclination for prostitutes perhaps due to his ancestral relationship with them, otherwise no pious man could allow a young prostitute to touch his head with her filthy hands, and massage his head with the unclean perfume purchased with the earnings of adultery, and rub his feet with her hair. Let the intelligent judge what sort of character such a person must possess.
(Zamimah Anjuman-i-Atham, Ruhani Khaza’in, Vol. 11, p. 291)
A beautiful prostitute is sitting so close to him as though she is embracing him. Sometimes she massages his head with perfume or holds his feet, and sometimes she lays her beautiful black hair on his feet and plays in his lap. In this situation Mr. Messiah is sitting in ecstasy. If someone rises to object, he is scolded. Besides his young age, the habit of alcoholism, and being a bachelor, a beautiful prostitute is lying in front of him touching her body with his. Is this the behavior of a virtuous person? And what evidence or proof is there that Jesus did not get sexually provoked by the touch of the prostitute. Alas Jesus could not even have the facility of sexual intercourse with any wife of his own after passing his glance upon that adulteress. What sexual excitement would have been provoked by the touching of that wretched adulteress and her playfulness! The sexual excitement and arousal would have done its work to the full. This is the reason why Jesus could not open his mouth to say, "Oh adulteress! keep away from me." It is well established in the Bible that that woman was one of the prostitutes, notorious for adultery in the entire city.
(Nur al-Quran, Ruhani Khaza’in, Vol. 9, p. 449)
In the above quotations, Mirza has exposed his true nature. The disgusting statements and accusations contained in the above quotations are not to be found in the Holy Bible. By ridiculing Jesus, Mirza has tried to improve his own image as the Promised Messiah. We shall quote the actual passages from the Bible to enable the general public to assess the extent of slander and falsehood perpetrated against Jesus Christ (peace be upon him) by the false Messiah namely Mirza Qadiani.

According to the New Testament this episode is written as follows:

And one of the Pharisees desired him that he would eat with him. He went into the Pharisee’s house and sat down to meat. And, behold, a woman in the city, which was a sinner, when she knew that Jesus sat at meat in the Pharisees house, brought an alabaster box of ointment, and stood at his feet behind him weeping, and began to wash his feet with tears, and then wiped them with the hairs of her head, and kissed his feet, and anointed them with the ointment. Now when the Pharisee which had forbidden him saw it, he spoke within himself, saying, this man if he were a prophet, would have known who and what manner of woman this is that toucheth him for she is a sinner. And Jesus answering said unto him, Simon, I have somewhat to say unto thee. And he said, Master, say on. There was a certain creditor which had two debtors; the one owed 500 pence, and the other 50. And when they had nothing to pay, he frankly forgave them both. Tell me therefore, which of them will love him most? Simon answered and said, I suppose that he, to whom he forgave most. And he said unto him, Thou hath rightly judged. And he turned to the woman, and said unto Simon, seeth thou this woman? I entered into thine house, thou givest me no water for my feet; but she hath washed my feet with tears, and wiped them with the hairs of her head. Thou givst me no kiss; but this woman since the time I came in, has not ceased to kiss my feet. My head with oil thou didst not anoint; but this woman has anointed my head with ointment. Therefore I say unto thee, her sins which are many, are forgiven, the same loveth little. And he said unto her, thy sins are forgiven sins also? And he said to the woman, thy faith hath saved thee; go in peace.
[St. Luke, Ch. 7:36-50]
The above is confirmed in the Gospel according to John as follows: Then took Mary a pound of ointment of Spikenard, very costly, and anointed the feet of Jesus, and wiped his feet with her hair; and the house was filled with odour of the ointment. Then said one of his disciples, Judas Iscariot, Simon’s son, which should betray him, why was not this ointment sold for 300 pence, and given to the poor? This he said, not that he cared for the poor; but because he was a thief, and had the bag, and bare what was put therein. Then said Jesus, let her alone; against the day of my buying had she kept this. For the poor always Ye have with you; but me Ye have not always. [St. John, Ch. 12:3-8] And according to Matthew the story is narrated in the following manner: Now that Jesus was in Bethany, in the house of Simon the leper, there came unto him a woman having an alabaster box of very precious ointment, and poured it on his head as he sat at meat, but when his disciples saw it, they had indignation, saying, to what purpose is this waste? For this ointment might have been sold for much, and given to the poor. Then Jesus understood it, he said unto them, why trouble Ye the woman? For she hath wrought a good always with you; but me Ye have the poor always. For in that she had poured this ointment on my body, she did it for my burial. Verily I say unto you, where so ever this Gospel shall be preached in the whole world, there shall also this, that this woman hath done, be told for a memorial of her. [St. Matthew, 26:6-13] We have quoted the actual episodes from the Bible. The immoral woman came to Jesus crying and weeping, seeking forgiveness for her sins. Hence Jesus said, "Your sins are forgiven." Mirza’s insulting distortions have been highlighted in his writings

The Bible certainly does not contain such base episodes nor does it depict Jesus in these terms. By these insults Mirza tried to thrust the blame on the Bible to achieve his evil objectives.
