Decide for Yourself!!
Hazrat Isa (alayhis sallam) in the Islamic, Christian and Qadiani perspective
Dearest brothers and sisters, how truthful the Holy Prophet was when he said:
According to his prophecy, many liars claiming to be the Prophet have already appeared and will keep on appearing until the last to appear will be Dajjal.
Hadhrat Samurah ibn Jundab reports that the HolyProphet said in the sermon he delivered on the same day, there was a solar eclipse:
These lairs began to appear at the very time of the Holy Prophet . Their aim was to create disunity among the Muslims. Some of these liars that claimed Prophethood in the past are listed below.
1. Aswad al Anasse – Claimed Prophethood whilst the Holy
was still alive. The Sahâbâh
killed him before the Holy Prophet
There have been others like Mukhtar ibn Ubaid. However, the more recent liar was Ghulam Ahmad al Qadiani.
Mirza Gulam, besides claiming to be the Mahdi, the Promised Messiah, also claimed to be the Prophet in 1901. He was born in a village called Qadian (Northern India) in 1839. His fathers name was Gulam Mustafa whilst his mothers name was Chiraagh.
India at the time was ruled by the British colonial regime. The war of independence of 1857 and the holy struggle of Sayyed Ahmed Saeed (One of our pious elders) frightened and scared the colonialist. Because the colonialist were facing difficulties in India they sought for an alternative to real Islam and disunite the Muslims and remove the notion of resistence in the Muslims. They saw that their target and aim could only be achieved if they can find somebody amongst the Indians to claim to be a prophet. The colonialists found in Mirza what they were looking for; Mirza Ghulam sold his faith for petty worldly gains and claimed to be a prophet, the Mahdi and the promised messiah.
Read the following conditions laid down by the Prophet regarding the Mahdi and The Promised Messiah and then decide for yourself whether he was the Mahdi and the promised messiah or an impostor.
1. The Mahdi will be a descendent of the Prophet He will resemble the Holy Prophet in character and his name will be Muhammad and his father’s name will be Abdullah. The Prophet said:
2. The Prophet said:
This sign also did not appear before Mirza Gulam as the only people had paved the way for him was the British Colonial Government and not Haris or Mansoor. The Prophet said:
Mirza Gulam was not a descendant of the Holy Prophet and nor did he resemble the Prophet in character. Drinking wine, eating pork and associating with woman was Mirza's habit. His name was Ghulam Ahmad whiles his fathers name was Ghulam Mustafa and not Abdullah as it should have been if he was the true Mahdi.
3. The Muslims will make Bai’at with the Mahdi in Makkah near the Ka’aba. The Holy Prophet said:
Nobody ever made Bai’at with Mirzah Ghulam in Makkah.
4. After Bai’at an army will be sent from Syria to fight the true Mahdi and the earth will swallow this army before it reaches him. The Prophet said:
No army ever came to Mirza Ghulam and thus never perished.
5. The Holy Prophet has informed us:
The only people pleased with Mirza Ghulam were the British Colonialists. He displeased one billion Muslims by insulting our beloved Prophet by claming Prophethood and making a mockery of the Qur’ân and Hadith.
6. We have been told in many Ahâdith that the Dajjal will appear in the time of Mahdi and ‘Isa (A.S) will descend to earth to kill him. It has been over 80 years since his death, yet the Dajjal has still not emerged and nor has ‘Isa (A.S) descended.
I am sure by now you have come to the conclusion that Mirza Ghulam was not the true Mahdi; referred to in the Ahâdith.
We can learn from the Hadith of Nawas Bin Sam’an
which can be found in Muslim Shareef (the second most authentic book after
the Holy Qur’ân) and from the Hadith of Abu Ummamah Al-Bahilee
which can be found in Ibn Majah, the following regarding the Promised Messiah:
None of the above conditions were fulfilled by Mirza Ghulam. His name was Ghulam Ahmad and not ‘Isa, he was the son of Chiragh and not Maryam. The Mahdi and the Dajjal did not appear before him and thus there is no question in him killing Dajjal. He did not descend from the heavens nor did any Kaafir die from his breath.
The tribes of Gog Magog did not appear in his time nor did the Jews and Christians believe in him before his death. He did not elevate Islam but insulted it by claming to be the Mahdi, the Messiah and a Prophet. He didn’t kill the pigs but enjoyed eating it. Wars did not cease in his time as the Muslims were struggling against the colonialists in India. The receiving of Sadqah was not discarded nor was venom taken out of venomous animals in his time. He never performed Hajj or Umrah and died in a toilet.
I am sure by now you have easily come to the conclusion that Mirza Ghulam Ahmad was not the promised Messiah the Mahdi or a Prophet, but was an impostor and a liar. His aim and purpose in life was to keep the colonialists happy, those who made him and nourished him with evil ideas to confuse and disunite the Muslims.
