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.
"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,
"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,
"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
(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.
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
(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.
"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,
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,
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.
