Mirza a false Prophet
Mirza failing his own test
Can Mirza be a prophet after having so many shortcomings and faults as a person? He was unreliable, he was a khazin, he was a Kazzab, and he used conjecture and deceptions regularly in every aspect of his life. He had beliefs of Shirk majority of his life according to his own admissions. He practiced magical tricks and mumbo jumbo suited to a Hindu Jogi rather then a Prophet according to the Islamic doctrine.
We have systematically built a case against Mirza based on his own criteria.
We exposed him on the test of being Sadiq in our first article. Then we produced evidence that he told white lies about his Grand father, which conclusively proved that he failed the test of Sadiq.
We continue that theme here and produce more evidence against Mirza. We have also demonstrated that the alleged book of divine revelations “Tadkirah” contains error and blatant frauds and deceptions by the compilers and translator. Proving without shadow of any doubt that these revelations could not be from Allah SWT. Either this fact or Quadianis have to accept this bizarre notion that Allah SWT can make mistakes (nauzobillah), a thought which can not cross any Muslim’s mind.
In this article we are dealing with his claims that the Quranic verses 69:44/46 are testimony to his truthfulness and the test contained therein also applies to him.
Prophets can not deceive
Quran provides a clear cut decree on the basic quality of all the Prophets of Allah SWT.
3:161 (Asad) AND IT IS not conceivable that a prophet should deceive - since he who deceives shall be faced with his deceit on the Day of Resurrection, when every human being shall be repaid in full for whatever he has done, and none shall be wronged.
When faced with the lies and deceptions of Mirza, his follower’s standard response is to attack Prophet Muhammad SAW and the Quran. They have been feed these crooked lies by their deceitful and deceptive cult. The lies purported by twisting the meanings of the Quranic verses. They usually bring the evidence from the Quran that Prophet Ibrahim AS lied (nauzobillah).
Quadiani’s allegations against Prophet Ibrahim AS
These allegations are based on a verse in Surah Anbiya
21:63 (Asad) He answered: “Nay, it was this one, the biggest of them, that did it: but ask them [yourselves] - provided they can speak!”
Many translators and commentators have fallen pray to the wrong translation, meanings and explanations of this verse. We have produced the translation by Asad, which indicates use of Nay. We produce word by word translation of this verse to clarify the real meanings portrayed in the holy Quran, Allah SWT knows the best.
Qala= He said (Ibrahim), Bal= But, off course, indeed, F’allahu= someone did it (passive), Kabiruhum= The biggest one, Haza= this, F’asalahum= ask them, In= If, Kannu yantiqun= they can speak.
It is quite apparent, Ibrahim As according to this Quranic verse definitely did not used the word Nay or No at all. But majority of translator and Mufasir decided to introduce this word Nay or No, based on the commentary by an earlier Mufasir. The word by word translations of this verse is; He said off course someone did it; the biggest one, ask them, if they can speak. It is important to point out that there is a pause (Waqf) used in the Quran after the word F’allahu, denoted by the punctuation mark, exactly like a coma in the English language.
Therefore, a pause is needed before continuing the sentence to bring out its correct meanings. Before we continue on the point of pause, it is also important to point to 21:58 which states clearly why Prophet Ibrahim AS left the biggest of them standing.
21:58 And then he broke those [idols] to pieces, [all] save the biggest of hem, so that they might [be able to] turn to it.
It was always the intentions of Hazrat Ibrahim AS that he would ask the idol worshipers to turn to the big one and ask the question from him.
In verse 21:57 by pausing at F’allahu as required the meaning become clearer and shows that no denial or acceptance was done by Ibrahim As. But he intelligently and passively said, some one has done it, it could be anyone but surely someone has done it, enquire from the victims themselves who done it, if they can speak. He As provided the audience food for thought that their gods couldn’t protect themselves; how they can be treated as all powerful, all Knowing?
Picktall, for example in the translation of this verse did not use the word Nay or No compare to other commentators, but he still fall victim of not pausing after F’allahu, to convey the right meaning of this verse.
The translations and tafsir are the words and understanding of the person and not the Word of Allah SWT. This distinction is necessary whenever we have to analyse the verses in the Quran. The tafsir are for understanding only, but the authors of tafasir can surely make mistakes or have erroneous translations or explanations, understanding of any verse in the Holy Quran.
Qadianis face another dilemma on the translation and in understanding of this issue. Their cult own resources also shows that they are aware of the correct usage of this verse. Their Ka-Lip II in the explanation of this verse in the foot note writes that there is no need to use the pause after Bil f’allahu, to give it the correct meanings, as per suggestions. Ka-Lip II point is that Ibrahim AS already told the followers of these idols before hand that he intended to destroy the idols. Ka-Lip II also said in no uncertain terms that it is not a lie.
We leave it here and proceed with the main purpose of our article.
True Prophets did not make mistakes in the matter of beliefs
We Muslims believe that Prophets of God can never make mistakes in the matter of beliefs and Iman and sin. Therefore, tendency towards paganism or shirk was never found in the true Prophets of God. The Prophets according to Islamic teachings are entrusted with Message of God, the basic foundation of this Message is monotheism from God, any tendency to associate partners with God or perform any other kind of Shirk was unimaginable for a True Prophet of God.
In this article we are deliberately ignoring the concoctions by Mirza and Qadiani’s on the meaning of the Words “Khatam/Khatim unNabiaan”. Mirza has used different meanings for these words too, like every thing else of any consequence and validity in the matter of faith and Iman. And we also leave the practice of shirk by Mirza for a future article, both of these topics need a comprehensive and thorough look into the writings of Mirza.
The Prophets of God can not commit cardinal sins either, or anything else which shows lack of character and faults in their personalities. Examples of this could be misuse of Amanat, Mirza running away with pension money, or for decades keeping the advances given for the book Brahaeen by the subscribers. Mirza claimed to have returned the money after lapse of over two decades. Untruthfulness (too numerous to mention), use of Intoxicants; regular use of Opium and perhaps also Tonic Wine; abusive language (to numerous to mention), and other visible and apparent flaws in character and/or conduct.
Prophets were sent as an example and as models for ordinary human being; they were entrusted with divine revelations due to their morality and strength of their characters. We have stated it before; Prophethood is not a degree obtainable from a University. One passing certain tests or he gradually elevated to the status of Prophet, like Mirza tried to imply and claim.
According to the Islamic teachings Prophets are susceptible to make minor errors such as error of judgment but they are incapable to commit sins. However, those errors are pointed out to them by God and are not left uncorrected. Quranic evidence suggests that all the Prophets of God were the best examples of piety and guidance for their people.
We have already dealt with Mirza’s lies that Allah SWT does not leave him in error or let him forget anything for a blink of an eye. The fact remains, his mistakes were never corrected by Allah SWT until his death. We find numerous examples of his errors.
Wisdom and Character were the signs of True Prophets
Prophets were selected by Allah SWT for their Wisdom and Character, to pass the message of God to people, to make them understand the intricacies of the religion and guide them through the examples set by them. In this sense wisdom and intelligence coupled with sound character are natural criterion for the Prophets. Allah SWT has chosen Prophets not only for their Piety and Character but also for their ability to convey the message as it was intended and set an example for the followers.
According to the Islamic beliefs mere intelligence is not the criterion to become a Prophet. For example no matter how intelligent is a person; it is impossible to know the reality of after life by scientific means.
19:61 [theirs will be the] gardens of perpetual bliss which the Most Gracious has promised unto His servants, in a realm which is beyond the reach of human perception: [and,] verily, His promise is ever sure of fulfillment!
Similarly scientists are still baffled on the origin of the universe, even though they claim to have well established theories in this regard but all these theories have problems which science to date can not solve, before these theories could be trusted as reality or scientific facts. For example Science despite best efforts has failed to find the special particle given name “Higgs Boson” or any evidence of the anti-gravitational force which according to scientists was responsible for the inflation of the matter at the time of the big bang. Or the “God Particle” which gives mass to other particles. Experiments are on going to find the answers to these issues and find the God Particle.
Mirza declares that a liar is against the Tauheed
Khuda Talla (once again this horrid word used by Mirza) wants “wahadat” oneness (of Allah SWT). A person who causes problems to his brother, lies, misappropriate and backbite is the enemy of this “wahadat” oneness (of Allah SWT). (Badar V2 N4 P2 26 January 1906)
Mirza in his bold attempts (as was his practice through out his life) has completely put himself in a corner by above sayings. In our previous articles we have systematically proven that Mirza was a liar, he associated white lies to Allah SWT. Now he is admitting that lies are against the concepts of Uniqueness and Unity of Allah SWT.
Truthfulness of the Prophets: Quranic Evidence
Quranic evidence suggests that the Prophets peace be upon them all were truthful first and foremost. They did not deceive anyone, the holy Quran declared;
1- Prophet Ibrahim AS was truthful;
19:41 AND CALL to mind, through this divine writ, Abraham. Behold, he was a man of truth, [already] a prophet.
We Muslims believe that there are no contradictions in the Holy Quran, therefore, in the presence of 19:41 to translate 21:63 as evidence of Lie by Abraham is erroneous. We firmly believe there are absolutely no contradictions in the Holy Quran.
2- Ibrahim As son, Ismael AS was truthful;
19:54 AND CALL to mind, through this divine writ, Ishmael. Behold, he was always true to his promise, and was an apostle [of God], a prophet,
3- Prophet Idris (Enoch) was truthful too;
19:56 AND CALL to mind, through this divine writ, Idris. Behold, he was a man of truth, a prophet,
We also find the evidence in the Holy Quran in the words of a fellow prisoner for H Youssuf (Joseph) AS;
12:46 [And he went to see Joseph in the prison and said to him:] "Joseph, O thou truthful one! Enlighten us about [the meaning of a dream in which] seven fat cows were being devoured by seven emaciated ones, and seven green ears [of wheat appeared] next to [seven] others that were withered - so that I may return [with thy explanation] unto the people [of the court, and] that they may come to know [what manner of man thou art]!"
There is plenty of evidence in the Quran to demonstrate that the first quality Prophets had was their truthfulness. If they were not truthful how their followers and we could have trusted them to relay the Messages sent by Allah SWT for the guidance of the humanity in different ages?
We have consistently built up the case against Mirza that he was not honest and truthful. To demonstrate that he should be rejected out of hand, without questions or any doubts; whatsoever.
Quranic evidence “Truthfulness” a condition for the Believers
Quadiani always try to bring the evidence from Quran 24:59 that people can be in the company of the Righteous, the Martyrs, The Saints and the Prophets if they do the rightful deeds. This is a separate topic so we leave it for our future articles. Quadianis keep forgetting that The Holy Quran also declares that people who attained to faith should remain Sadiq i.e. true to their words.
9:119 O YOU who have attained to faith! Remain conscious of God, and be among those who are true to their word!
According to the Quranic declaration, Mirza due to his lies could not even be a believer, let alone be a Prophet.
49:15 [Know that true] believers are only those who have attained to faith in God and His Apostle and have left all doubt behind, and who strive hard in God’s cause with their possessions and their lives: it is they, they who are true to their word!
Allah SWT in the above verse set out the conditions for true believers. The true believers are those who attained to faith in Allah SWT and his Messenger SAW, left their doubts behind, they strive hard for the cause of Allah, they are the Sadiqoon, i.e. true to their words.
It is a well known fact that Mirza declared striving in the cause of God forbidden for his followers. He surely failed on two counts, the conditions set out in the above verse. First being a liar and second in his efforts to abolish striving in the cause of God on the behest of his true masters, the British.
How Christian Emperor Judged claims of Prophet Muhammad SAW
The truthfulness of the claimant of Prophethood is not merely confined to the Muslims. After the Huddabiya, Prophet Muhammad SAW sent letters to different rulers. One letter was sent to the Byzantine Emperor. At that time Abu Suffiyan a bitter enemy of Prophet Muhammad SAW was present in Syria with his Caravan. The Emperor summoned him to assess the claims of Prophet Muhammad SAW. Among other questions he also asked Abu Suffiyan has anyone ever heard Prophet Muhammad SAW tell a lie. Abu Suffiyan answered in negative. The Emperor responded by saying “it is inconceivable for one who has never told a lie during his life to invent lies against God”.
Therefore, a Christian Emperor considered test of truthfulness to judge the claims of Prophet Muhammad SAW. The test Mirza has failed consistently through out his life. We have demonstrated with proofs that the alleged divine book “Tadkirah” contains deliberate lies and fraud by this cult, to establish credibility of Mirza in the eyes of the readers.
This alleged book claimed to have contained the revelation from Allah SWT. It was our main purpose to demonstrate that Mirza lied and attributed lies to Allah SWT on such momentous occasions in his life. No body forgets death of his father and brother. It is even more important that the information contained therein is free of errors if you are attributing it to be revelation from Allah SWT. Fact remains the evidence from the books of Mirza showed conclusively that Mirza missed the year of his brother death by 4 years at one place and another place he killed him 2 years before his actual death. He also missed death of his father by 2 years. How such a liar could claim that he received the news of their deaths from Allah SWT as a Prophecy, is beyond comprehension.
We have also shown to our readers, subsequent fraudulent efforts by his sons and Zafrullah to fool the readers and followers of Mirza. There appears a pattern of lies and deceit starting from Mirza and spreading to his sons. How Quadianis in their right minds can trust liars and fraudster like them is beyond us. These liars would not hesitate for a minute to attribute lies to Allah SWT; what other proofs needed to know their lies and characters?
Test set by the Hadiths Traditions
This is the exact test Mirza failed miserably. He can not be trusted, he is a habitual liar, he can associate lies against God like he has done all his life.
Prophet Muhammad SAW according to the narration in Bukhari and Muslim said;
“It is incumbent upon you to be always truthful for truthfulness leads to righteousness and righteousness leads to Paradise, if a man is always truthful and seeks truthfulness, he is recorded by God as truthful one. Always avoid lying for lying leads to shamefulness and shamefulness leads to Hell. If a man insists on lying and seeks deceit, he is record by God as a liar. “
(Bukhari Book of Adab N69, Muslim Birr N105).
Mirza can not attend righteousness due to his lies, he can not be admitted to the Paradise, his abode surely is hell according to the traditions quoted.
Mirza’s false claims; are they based on Quranic verses?
After demonstrating every step of the way that Mirza was a liar, now we turn our attention to a trap deceptively set by Mirza. In his efforts to confuse and misguide the poor and uneducated villagers of rural Punjab. He claimed that the verses in Surrah Haqqah are testimony to his truthfulness; his jugular veins would have been swerved if he has attributed lie(s) to Allah SWT.
Believe me I am not a liar. All the holy books of Khuda (Allah SWT) witness that a liar is killed early. He is not given longevity in his life, like a truthful person obtains. The king of all the truthful persons is our Prophet Muhammad SAW. He SAW was given 23 years for his revelations. This duration is a barometer until the day of the Judgment for truthful persons. The one, who includes a liar in this barometer, may thousands of (Lanat) curses of Allah SWT, the Angels and the righteous people upon him. Even if this verse was not in the Quran and all the true Prophets of Allah SWT did not said that liars do not achieve the barometer set for the revelations. Even then, the love for our Prophet SAW does not allow a true Muslim to say that this barometer of 23 three years of revelations given to Prophet Muhammad SAW; can be given to a liar. The way Holy Quran in clear terms described that if this Prophet (SAW) was a liar (nauzobillah) then he would have never be given this barometer for the duration of revelations. The Torah and the Bible also gave same testimony. What kind of Islam and Muslims are they, to reject these testimonies like a waste; just in my opposition?
Mirza in above quotation failed to provide any evidence or reference from the Torah and the Bible; therefore, for time being we will ignore it to proceed further.
Secondly; Mirza deceptively writes that all the Prophets of Allah SWT said that liars do not get the longevity given to the true Prophets. He is absolutely wrong, we will prove in this article that true prophets were killed by people, some of them very young and very early during their ministry.
Mirza's claim for his share in Quranic test confirmed by Yalesh
Translation: A friend of mine has raised a point with me that verses 45-48 of Chapter 69 of the Holy Quran: If he had fabricated any saying and attributed it to Us, We would surely have seized him by the right hand, and then surely We would have severed his large artery, and not one of you could have kept Us from it; were special to the Holy Prophet and were not applicable in the case of any other claimant of revelation. I explained my point of view to him and the same night in the context of my discussion with him I received the revelation (Arabic): Tell them: The true guidance is the guidance of Allah; meaning that the connotation of these verses which had been disclosed to me by Allah is the correct one (Arba'een, No.4, pp.5-7).
Evidence from tadkirah established without a shadow of a doubt that Mirza is claiming that Allah SWT has affirmed to him by way of revelations that the test set out by the Quran for the duration of revelations to Prophet Muhammad SAW applies to Mirza too.
As for the alleged Arabic revelations in above quotation; it is word for word copied from the Holy Quran, from the Verse 120 of Al-Baqara and Verse 73 of Al-Imran.
We will prove that not only Mirza lied as usual and attributed white lies to Allah SWT. He definitely did not receive any such revelations and despite him attributing white lies to Allah SWT on regular basis, as we have already demonstrated in our previous articles, no harm was done to him by Allah SWT. The test is set by Mirza; we are merely proving that he has failed the test he so proudly claimed is applicable to him too.
Mirza says this Verse is for the recipients of revelations only
In ZTG Mirza clarifies the implication of these verses further in response to the objection raised by Hafiz Muhammad Youssuf. Mirza writes;
“Insistence by Hafiz Muhammad Youssuf Sahib in every gathering that a person does not die within 23 years if he attributes lies to Khuda Talla (Allah SWT). This means he must have attributed lies to Khuda Talla (Allah SWT) by claiming revelations, but he still did not get killed. In his heart he thinks that Khuda Talla (Allah SWT) decreed this for Prophet SAW, that if he SAW attributed lies to Me (Allah SWT) We (SWT) would have cut his SAW Jugular veins. This is not correct. To think that why Khuda (Allah SWT) did not cut our Jugular veins. The answer to this is that this Verse is for Messengers, Prophets and for those who are appointed (by Allah SWT, whatever this mean). They spread their message to millions of people. The world can be destroyed due to their lies.
But a person who by himself during this divinely prescribed duration did not keep quite until the end. Nor he withdrew his claims. So in this Ummah I am the only person who has been granted 23 years of revelations in the footsteps of Prophet Muhammad SAW. The revelations lasted for 23 years, without interruptions. For this proof I produce the divine Words revealed 21 years ago and published in Braheen-e-Ahmmadiyya. And they were published verbally for 7/8 years. Their witness is confirmed by Braheen-e-Ahmaddiya.”
Before dealing with the serious issues, for lighter side, we like to draw attention of our readers to two hilarious sentences in above quotation. Mirza called himself Sultan of the Pen. But this Sultan, has written “But for 7/8 years they were published verbally”. How something can be verbal if it was published? Secondly this liar, is given testimony for the truthfulness of his quotations from the Braheen for something published in the Braheen. This is called self appointed judge and jury.
For the purpose of this Article we will deal with the issue of Prophets and Messengers in details. This third self created category of “Appointed by God” Mamur min Allah SWT is not worth pondering for the purpose of this article. But we will briefly deal with some claimants of this title.
But in case of Mirza we consider all three possibilities, if nothing else but for the purpose to eliminate any possibilities for Lahori’s to twist it by claiming Mirza never claimed Prophethood.
Fact of the matter is by the time he has written this book, Mirza was already aware that this test does not apply to him. Who knew better then him? He off course was well aware of all the lies he has attributed to Allah SWT and was still alive. This fact is enough to demonstrate his lies and reasons for his approach. In the above quoted paragraph, Mirza has actually spelled it out in no uncertain terms that a liar who associates white lies to Allah SWT can live. Even though he has directed this sentence towards his opponent but nevertheless the words and ideas are his and not of his opponent. It is a clear proof of his thinking in his own words.
We leave the point to our next article what happened to Mirza after his claim of Propehthood. In the following article we are going to produce evidence of Mirza’s claims for prophethood and then deal with this quotation in that respect. We will demonstrate Inshallah that under any of the two scenarios Mirza is proven a liar and an accursed.
Claimants of revelations in Islam
Without wasting much time, we briefly list few Muslims who have claimed to receive revelations. To avoid debate, we produce few names which are selected from a list given in an article on Qadiani site, “Concept of Revelations in Islam”.
1- Abdul Qadir Jilani (1078 -1166) died at the age of 88, claim to have taught for over 40 years.
2- Muin-ud-din Chisti (1141- 1230) died at the age of 89.
3- Shah Wali Ullah (1703- 1762) died at the age of 59.
4- Sheik Ahmed Mujadid Alif-Thani (1564- 1624) died at the age of 60.
Above four claimed to receive the revelations according to the Qadiani official sources, they were also claimed to be “Mujadid” for different centuries. If one looks at the list of so called Mujadid then we find in 14th century as many as 7 Mujadid are listed excluding Mirza. In 15th century there are already 7 claimants listed, and the list is growing. We include another name in this list.
5 - Bayazid Bastami (804-874) was the first to use the term “fana fi Allah” i.e. annihilation of the self in Allah SWT and “Baqa bi Allah” i.e. Subsistence through Allah SWT. He died at the age of 70.
Bastami, was the first to use the term fana in the context of self annihilation, which has been repeated by Mirza as “Fana fil Rasool”, another hallow claim of Mirza. The reasons and purpose to briefly list these individual is to counter the claim of Mirza that he is the only one person in the Ummah to have received revelations for 23 years.
We like to put it on the record that our sole purpose is to show other claimants who claimed that they received revelations i.e. wahi from Allah SW, by producing few names from the list of the names on Qadiani’s website. It is in no way an attestation of their claims or a testimony to their truthfulness. The sole purpose here is to counter the arguments used by Mirza. This category also takes care of the claims of Mirza for those who claimed to be “Mamor min Allah SWT”.
We may in future article expose claims by Mirza that he was the only one in the Muslim Ummah to have attained to the status of a Prophet due to the quantity and quality of his Wahi. But in other places he has written that many before him have achieved the status of Prophets. Qadianis not surprisingly can not furnish name of one such claimant who has attained the status of a Prophet before or after Mirza, in the Muslims Ummah.
We have already taken care of the quality of his Wahi in our previous articles. On the evidence it is more like concoctions, lies, deceptions and frauds rather then the quality of his Wahi.
Another interesting and vitally important point worth mentioning here; Mirza claimed it and Qadiani literature is full of this theme that Mirza appeared as Messih in the last days. He is the Mujadid of the 14th centuary. This claims is off shot of the erroneous ideas and claims that World will be destroyed in 14th century. On the basis of this false notion, Mirza made his claims.
Fact of the matter is that not only World is still in existence after the completion of 14th century but also that there were numerous claimants for the title of “Mujadid” in 14th century and even more are appearing in the 15th century. After all they all claim the same thing. Without burdening ourselves with authenticity of their claims, it is suffice to say that the point is made by their claims that Mirza was not the last Mujadid. Qadianis should always remember it is their own claims that Allah SWT appoints Mujadid in every century. Therefore, they should abide by their own rules and standards.
Not to mention the moot point that Allah SWT at various places in the Holy Quran clearly decreed that the knowledge of the last hour remains with Him SWT alone. Mirza is proven a Kazzab on both counts, he is proven not to be the last, nor he could have knowledge of the last hour to claim he and Qadianis are “akhreen”. Lanatullah Alal Kazabeen. No one knows how long this world will last except Allah SWT according to the Holy Quran. Any one claiming to be akhreen or claiming the last days is a liar and should not be trusted for one second according to the teachings of the Holy Quran.
Biblical evidence and Tests for True Prophets
In the first quotation, Mirza claimed that all the true Prophets of Allah SWT have set up this test, he also claimed that both the Old Testament and the New Testament, i.e. the Torah and the Gospels, give testimony to this facts.
Even though it is not the main purpose of our Article, but just to demonstrate fallacy of Mirza’s claims we list few of the tests which are listed in the Bible.
1- Deuteronomy 13 1-5 says that if a prophet or dreamer comes to you and even if his prophecies comes to pass, but if he speaks of other Gods you have not known, then you should reject him as a false prophet. Your God is testing you. That dreamer or prophet should be put to death.
Fact of the matter is Mirza did speak of Yalesh as his god; a name never heard by any Muslim, or Jews or Christians.
2- It is quite common theme in the Old Testament that God has tested His Prophets with evil forces; for example Satan tested job in Job 1 and 2. Satan tested King David in Chronicles 21, Evil spirit testing Soul in 1 Samuel.
3- An interesting episode is recorded in 1 Kings 22;
“19 Then Micaiah said, “Therefore hear the word of the LORD: I saw the LORD sitting on His throne, and all the host of heaven standing by, on His right hand and on His left. 20 And the LORD said, ‘Who will persuade Ahab to go up, that he may fall at Ramoth Gilead?’ So one spoke in this manner, and another spoke in that manner. 21 Then a spirit came forward and stood before the LORD, and said, ‘I will persuade him.’ 22 The LORD said to him, ‘In what way?’ So he said, ‘I will go out and be a lying spirit in the mouth of all his prophets.’ And the LORD said, ‘You shall persuade him, and also prevail. Go out and do so.’ 23 Therefore look! The LORD has put a lying spirit in the mouth of all these prophets of yours, and the LORD has declared disaster against you.”
Mirza failed to provide any reference from the Bible and Torah, but according to the above quotations, contrary to the claims by Mirza Bible does say that false Prophets would come to the world speaking of foreign Gods; they will possess lying spirit. It seems that Bible is perfectly describing people like Mirza; he off course was a liar and speaks of foreign god.
Quranic evidence for Prophet SAW- Cutting the Vein
First let’s quote and analyse the relevant verses for our readers;
The problem for Mirza and his followers is that these group of verses start with the verse which categorically state that it is dealing with Quran and not with any previous revelations, there is no question of any future revelations from God after Islam is completed and Prophet Muhammad SAW being the last Prophet of any kind whatsoever.
69:40 Behold, this [Qur’an] is indeed the [inspired] word of a noble apostle,
This verse is categorical; it is for revelations contained in the Quran and not in any other earlier book of revelations. There is no book of revelations after Quran, according to Muslim beliefs and teachings. The revelations from Allah SWT by Prophet Muhammad SAW were relayed to the believers by him SAW. In essence the Words came out from the mouth of our beloved Prophet SAW were the Words revealed to him SAW by Allah SWT. The word “Ina ho” discount any possibility that this test applied to any earlier revelations and Prophets, like we written before, there is no chance of any future Prophet after Prophet Muhammad SAW. Nevertheless this word has discounted both scenarios.
Mirza was a liar to claim that these verses are for him and other claimants of Prophethood/Messengership. Any one who does not understand “This” in English or “INA HO” in Arabic language can not be trusted.
Allah SWT in Quran then listed few examples that Quran is not poetry of a Poet, or words of a Soothsayer. To ward of any suggestions or accusations by the non-believers.
69:41 and is not – however little you may [be prepared to] believe it - the word of a poet;
69:42 and neither is it - however little you may [be prepared to] take it to heart - the word of a soothsayer:
T hen the announcement that this Holy Quran is the revelation from Allah SWT given to Prophet Muhammad SAW. But the above verse also discount possibility of any other claimant of revelations i.e. the soothsayer.
69:43 [it is] a revelation from the Sustainer of all the worlds.
Allah SWT after pronouncing that Quran is the Word of Allah SWT, then announced the penalty for Prophet Muhammad SAW if he SAW introduce anything as Word of Allah on his own accord.
69:44 Now if he [whom We have entrusted with it] had dared to attribute some [of his own] sayings unto Us,
69:45 We would indeed have seized him by his right hand,
69:46 and would indeed have cut his life-vein.
Holy Quran the Word of Allah SWT is very clear and precise in these verses. Mirza is a liar to suggest that this test applies to him.
The news given in 69:43 that it was Prophet Muhammad SAW who was in trusted to pass this divine revelation and the message contain there in to the world. And if he SAW attributed some of his own saying unto the revelations from Allah SWT (69:44) then Allah SWT would have grab him SAW with his SAW right hand and cut his SAW life-veins.
Mirza was very found to falsely and maliciously attribute to himself anything which serves his purpose. We intend to prove that Mirza lied as usual.
Furthermore, it is also very important to points out that Quran consistently have decreed that the earlier revelations to different Prophets were compromised and corrupted. Therefore, other verses on the corruption of earlier Scriptures and above verses supplement each other and point to the fact that these verses are for Quran and Prophet Muhammad SAW only and not applicable to earlier revelations or Prophets.
Mirza calling Quran Word of his mouth
There is this wide spread view amongst Muslims that Mirza has called Quran word of his mouth on the basis of the following Quotations.
Translation: Revelation (Persian): Go forth as thy time has arrived and the feet of the Muslims will be planted firmly on a strong tower. (Urdu): Muhammad the Chosen one, Chief of the Prophets. God will set all thy affairs right and will bestow upon thee all that thou desirest. The Lord of hosts will turn His attention towards this. The purpose of this sign is that the Holy Quran is the Book of God and is the word of My mouth. The gate of God's bounties is open and His holy mercies are directed towards this. (English): The days shall come when God shall help you. Glory be to the Lord God, Maker of earth and heaven. (Braheen Ahmadiyya part IV pp. 521-522 sub footnote 3).
We have no doubt that Mirza was a Mushrik who regularly written heresies against the teachings of the Quran, but for the purpose of this article, we are of the opinion that Mirza was falsely trying to relate himself to the Quran, to allege that the Quranic revelations are for him. He has stated this at various places in his writings. In our considered opinion he wanted the share in some of the verses of the Quran including the verse 69:40 quoted above. We have maintained through out that this Kazzab always had a hidden agenda.
Conclusive Proofs from the Quran, no Prophets after Muhammad SAW
We can not resist the temptation to mention that on the same page in Braheen, Mirza mentioned verses from Surah Furqan. These verses are smacking him in the face and proving fallacy of his claims of being a Prophet after Prophet Muhammad SAW.
25:50 And, indeed, many times have We repeated [all] this unto men, so that they might take it to heart: but most men refuse to be aught but ingrate
25:51 Now had We so willed. We could have [continued as before and] raised up a [separate] Warner in every single community.
25:52 hence, do not defer to [the likes and dislikes of] those who deny the truth, but strive hard against them, by means of this [divine writ], with utmost striving.
25:51 is making it crystal clear that Prophet Muhammad SAW is the last Prophet of Allah SWT and there would be no prophet of any kind after him SAW. Allah SWT has terminated the line of the Prophets after him SAW. All the concoctions Qadianis use for the meaning of “khatam-un-Nabeen” are taken care of in these verses. 25:52 consolidate Muslims beliefs that after Quran there would be no revelations from Allah SWT we have to use the arguments contained in the Holy Quran in our strives to establish the truth in this world.
Mirza’s lies of him being a Nazir or Nabi
This quotation from the holly Quran gives us the opportunity to expose one more lie of Mirza; we produce the famous claims of Mirza from Tadkirah.
These verses also put an end to the lies of Mirza that he was a Nazir and Allah SWT would accept him even though people may reject him. In 20:51 Allah SWT decreed that He SWT will not continue the line of Prophethood and would not send any more warners (Nazir’s) in the world after Prophet Muhammad SAW. Therefore, claim by Mirza of being a Nazir is in direct conflict with a very clear decree by Allah SWT in the Holy Quran, Lanatullah Alal Kazabeen.
Dishonesty of Mirza is apparent from the words he used that he would be accepted by Allah SWT. What happened to the notion that Allah SWT appoints prophets? Mirza knew he is making a false claim that’s why he used the words that he would be accepted by Allah SWT. Not that he was appointed by Allah SWT. That’s why he changed meaning of this alleged revelations to include Nabi for this word Nazir in the book correction of an error, and repeated it in Al-Hakam in 1889. Here Mirza is admitting that he didn’t include the second meaning of Nabi in Braheen to avoid the trouble it would have created for him. In other words he intended to fool the readers and his followers by giving the impression that he was not claiming prophethood.
Funnily enough, Mirza once again made a horrendous mistake few pages apart in the same book. He made a claim of being a Nazir; only few pages after he quoted Verses from Surah Fruqan which completely deny his claims and prove him a liar according to the Quran. It proves that Mirza was not the brightest or a knowledgeable person when it comes to Islamic teachings.
Quran says People killed True Prophets of Allah SWT
Coming back to the issue of duration of Wahi for Prophets, main purpose of this article, first we look at the Quranic evidence on the truthful status of some of the Prophets from the Quran.
6:85 and [upon] Zachariah, and John, and Jesus, and Elijah every one of them was of the righteous;
The verse 6:85 establishes the authenticity of Prophethood of the four Prophets mentioned by name in the Holy Quran; they were true Prophets of Allah SWT.
Now let’s read the Quranic decree which establishes without a shadow of a doubt that True Prophets of Allah SWT were indeed killed by people.
3:112 Overshadowed by ignominy are they wherever they may be, save [when they bind themselves again] in a bond with God and a bond with men; for they have earned the burden of God's condemnation, and are overshadowed by humiliation: all this [has befallen them] because they persisted in denying the truth of God's messages and in slaying the prophets against all right: all this, because they rebelled [against God], and persisted in transgressing the bounds of what is right.
This verse is crystal clear proof that True Prophets of Allah SWT were killed by people. Therefore, it proves that Mirza was a liar to claim that the test set out by 69:45/46 is for all the true Prophets and Messengers of Allah SWT. The test is only related to the Quran, the Word of Allah SWT and the punishment mentioned was for Prophet Muhammad SAW only, it did not apply to any earlier Prophets. No need for us to stress again and again that there are no prophets after him SAW. We have already given Quranic proofs that Allah SWT will not sent any more Warners.
Therefore, we have proven from Quranic evidence that the assertions by Mirza that the test of 23 years duration of revelations is applicable to the Messengers, Prophets and others who are appointed by Allah SWT (mamoors) is completely and utterly false. Quran says that True Prophets of Allah SWT were killed by people.
Oath of Prophets for Prophet SAW and Quran
There is other evidence available in the Holy Quran which supplements the Verse Khatam/Khatim-un-Nabian. We have already stated 25:51 in above paragraph. These verses are strengthening from the following verse in the Holy Quran, which mentions the oath taken by Allah SWT from all the earlier Prophets of Allah SWT. These Prophets have to be earlier then Prophet Muhammad SAW according to this verse, for Quran to testify to the truth already in possession and to testify and confirm the revelation already received.
Quran can not confirm and testify for the revelations received after the completion of the Holy Quran. Thus lies and concoctions of Mirza or anyone who claims revelations and Prophethood after Prophet SAW are taken care of by Allah SWT in the Holy Quran.
In holy Quran Allah SWT has already informed us that He SWT accepted the oath from all other earlier prophets for Prophet Muhammad SAW.
3:81 AND, LO, God accepted, through the prophets, this solemn pledge [from the followers of earlier revelation]: "If, after all the revelation and the wisdom which I have vouchsafed unto you, there comes to you an apostle confirming the truth already in your possession, you must believe in him and succour him. Do you" - said He - "acknowledge and accept My bond on this condition?" They answered: "We do acknowledge it." Said He: "Then bear witness [thereto], and I shall be your witness.
When Allah SWT has become a Witness to the oath taken by all the earlier Prophets that they and their followers must abide by The Bond of Allah SWT, accept and fulfill this condition to follow the teachings of the Holy Quran and Prophet Muhammad SAW, there is no need for any prophets of any kinds or manners. There is no need for revelations of any kind either.
This had been the Will of Allah SWT from the beginning to bestow this blessing on Prophet Muhammad SAW that after his advent all the Prophets and their followers are bound by the revelations sent to him SAW. This pledge was taken from all the Prophets by Allah SWT.
How it is possible that after the arrival of Prophet Muhammad SAW and revelation of Holy Quran, something else could either replace the Holy Quran or some one take the place of Prophet Muhammad SAW the last Prophet of Allah SWT, as Mirza try to do deceptively?
How it is possible that Quran would have included and confirmed the truth which was not even revealed yet? This verse is very clear; it decreed that Quran confirms what is already in their possession.
Is there a better Witness then Allah SWT?
We leave it there; we intend to write separately on the issue of “Khatam-un-Nabain”, Inshallah.
Evidence for the Murders of the Prophets
We proceed further to expose lies of Mirza that all the Prophets of Allah SWT have said that duration of the revelation is given to the true Prophets only and liars do not get share in this longevity for the period and duration of revelations. We produce evidence that true Prophets of Allah SWT mentioned in the Holy Quran were indeed killed some very early in their ministry.
1- John the Baptist (Yaha) AS
(born 1st century AD) Jewish prophet in Christianity as the forerunner of Jesus. Sources for his life are the four Gospels, the Acts of the Apostles, and the historian Josephus. His mother, Elizabeth, was perhaps a relative of Mary; his father was the priest Zechariah. As a young man John lived in the Judean desert, either as a hermit or as part of a Jewish monastic community such as the Essences. He attracted much public notice c. AD 28 as a prophet in the Jordan Valley. He preached the imminent wrathful judgment of God and called on his hearers to repent and be baptized. Jesus himself came to be baptized by John and shortly afterward began his own mission. John was imprisoned for criticizing the illegal marriage of Herod Antipas and was executed after Herod's stepdaughter, Salome, demanded his head as a reward for dancing for the king's guests.
(Britannica Concise Encyclopedia).
2- Zachariah (Zakaria) AS
Prophet Zachariah or Zakaria in Arabic was killed too; we find the evidence of his murder in the New Testament;
Mathew 23: 35 That upon you may come all the righteous blood shed upon the earth, from the blood of righteous Abel unto the blood of Zachariah son of Barachias, whom ye slew between the temple and the altar. (King James Version)
Luke 11:51 From the blood of Abel unto the blood of Zachariah which perished between the altar and the temple: verily I say unto you, It shall be required of this generation. (King James Version)
We have given examples of two True Prophets of Allah SWT according to the Quranic verses produced above. Fact of the matter is that John the Baptist was killed at a very young age around 30 AD. Therefore, his death proves the point that 23 years for the duration of Prophetic revelations does not apply to earlier true Prophets of Allah SWT mentioned in the Quran.
3- ISA AS (Jesus) put on the Cross and Crucified according to Mirza
We would also like to point out albeit briefly that according to Mirza even Prophet Isa AS was put on the Cross, even though he did not die. Nevertheless according to Mirza he was near to his As death or in other words his Jugular veins (almost died) were cut but he As somehow survived. It is important to mention that according to Mirza’s logic; Prophet ISA As only preached for a brief period before he was put on the cross to die. The Bible only gives roughly 3 years duration for his As ministry. We would be glad if any Quadiani could produce any other evidence from the scriptures for continuation of Isa As ministry after 33 AD.
We know the concoctions about Isa As migration to Kashmir, which we would definitely tackle in the future, Inshallah.
But the point here we want to make is that there is no verifiable historical evidence available that the revelations to Isa As continued after 33 AD. We challenge the followers of Mirza to produce a single evidence with verifiable proofs that the prophetic revelations of Allah SWT to Isa As continued after this period.
In the absence of any such evidence for the continuation of Wahi to Prophet ISA as after Circa 33 AD, we are entitle to conclude that according to Mirza’s logic, nauzobillah, Allah SWT also discontinued the revelations to Prophet Isa As. He As lived to the age of 120/125 according to Mirza, but no evidence of continuation of Wahi is available to the world. We hope Qadianis desist from producing the alleged book of revelations recovered by Novotic in Tibet. This evidence could be refuted very easily; the period that alleges revelations covered is for the missing years, from the age of 12 to 30 and not after 33 AD.
Anyhow, the evidence suggests that three earlier Prophets immediately before Prophet Muhammad SAW were either killed or in the case of Prophet ISA As the plans to execute him As were hatched by the opponents. According to the evidence in the Quran he was neither killed nor crucified but according to Mirza he was placed on the cross and crucified but did not die. We leave this argument for our future article. This topic needs full attention to explore it fully. But the point is proven from the example of all three Prophets immediately before Prophet Muhammad SAW.
Other Claimants of Prophethood after Prophet Muhammad SAW
After proving Mirza’s lies from the Quran and proving that two earlier true Prophets of Allah SWT were killed, one John the Baptist at a very young age after only few years of preaching.
We now move to prove that there were other false claimants of Prophethood who passed this test of 23 years period set out by Mirza himself.
1- Abraham Abulafia
He was born in Zaragoza, Spain in 1240 and died sometime after 1291 in Malta. He claimed to receive revelations with Masonic overtones at the age of 30, therefore he lasted more than 21 years after his claims, year of his actual death is not known, he may have lasted more than 23 years. He said that” men may attain to the highest aim of existence and become prophets’ not in order to work miracles and signs, but to reach the highest degree of perception and be able to penetrate intuitively into the inscrutable nature of the deity, the riddles of creation, the problems of human life, the purpose of the precepts.” This sounds very much like Mirza’s mantra of achieving the status of Prophets.
2- Jacob Frank
He was born in 1726 in Ukraine and died in 1791 at the age of 65. He claimed to be the re-incarnation of another self proclaimed messiah Sabbatai Zevi and that of King David. He created a new religion known as Frankism, a combination of Judaism and Christianity. In 1755 he started to preach the revelations in Podolia. Therefore he lived for another 31 years after he first claimed the revelations.
3- Mirza Husayn Ali –Baha
Baha was born in 1817, declared himself a Prophet in 1863; he eventually died in 1892 at the age of 75. Duration of his ministry spread over 29 years, surpassing 23 years test set out by Mirza. He claimed to have received the revelations from Allah SWT, believed in earlier Prophets. Called himself the best manifestation of God, similar to Mirza. In fact there are many similarities between him and Mirza. It is our firm believes that Mirza copied most of his concoctions from another Mirza, i.e. Baha. This once again could be explored in the future.
4- Dr Dahesh (Astonisher)
He was born in 1909 in Jerusalem, of Palestinian descend. His original name was Salim Mousa El-Achi. It is claimed by his followers that he walked on water, turn water into wine, heal the sick and raise the dead. The qualities matching exactly Isa AS (Jesus). Sage Institute of Paris awarded him an honorary doctorate in 1930. He wrote over 150 books, mostly fictions and poetry. His famous work is called “The Book of the Divine Guide and My Testament”.
It is reported that his miracles were witnessed by hundred of thousands of people from different religious groups. There is independent evidence written for his miracles. It is claimed that he was executed in Azerbaijan in 1943, but raised from the dead and died his natural death in 1984 in New York City.
In essence according to his follower’s claims he has fulfilled all the conditions of re-incarnation of Jesus. On the basis of his followers claims he is the one which surely should be accepted as a re-incarnated or second coming of Jesus.
Funny enough, his supporters use the same arguments used by the Quadianis that ISA As would not return bodily from heaven, but someone would be his re-incarnation, Masil, Barooz, etc etc. If one to believe such concept then he is more suited then any of the so called, re-incarnated Jesus.
He was a Christian, he never claimed Prophethood , but called himself to be a “Divine Guide”. In other words he claimed to have received the revelations too. Therefore, he fulfilled the criterion set out by Mirza. He made claim of receiving divine guidance in and around 1942, he was exiled from Lebanon, his nationality was revoked. But later Government of Lebanon re-instated his nationality. Even if we discount the legend of him being died and resurrected in Azerbaijan and take his actual death in 1984. He lived 44 years after making his claims. (Information obtained from the official site)
Let’s quote some paragraphs from the post of a follower of Dahesh using the ID “Mario”. This person claimed he knew Dr. Dahesh and was closed to him. It is an interesting read for the Quadianis. This individual is actually quoting from the book(s) of Dr. Dahesh.
According to what Dr. Dahesh wrote in part 3 of Strange Tales and Wondrous Legends he tells of a dream in which he visits the planet of the prophets (this is a long story and I am greatly summarizing here) where in one scene, he sees all the "great" prophets (and he names some of them: "and here was our Lord Christ and he was conversing with Moses and Elijah and Joshua and the prophet Solomon and his father prophet David and Abraham..." he also mentions prophet Daniel who was unjustly thrown in the lions' pit...(exactly like Mirza he has claimed to meet the Prophets in the state of wakefulness)
The Doctor then writes that from their conversation he knew they were ALL ONE PERSON of multiple (spiritual) Fluids (Sounds familiar, Mirza claimed to be from that fluid too).
"And each prophet among them is a fluid from the main person, and that prophet brought his fluids to different levels (ranks) ranging in elevation (high ranking as well as low ranking) based on his actions; and they all visited Planet Earth at different times and under different names, whereas the truth is that they are all one prophet sent to the Earth to establish a religion that is compatible with the (spiritual) fluids of the the inhabitants that happen to live during the era during which (the prophet) materializes on Earth" (This is perhaps not an eloquent translation, but you can vouch for the content as far as its meaning)
Then Christ expresses his disappointment in humanity... and he quite literally says that only a very few number of people actually believed in his message (that their number was so little one could even count using one's fingers... so, we're talking 10 maximum!?)
Then Christ declares that one of his fluids had materialized in INDIA in the name of GANDHI his fate was murder at the hand of "Judas" who was HIMSELF the same JUDAS who could not shake his old ways... In other words, the fluid that sold Jesus would materialize in India and assassinate Mahatma Gandhi.
And Christ declares that the murder of GANDHI was a great insult which meant that the people of Earth do not deserve a prophet among them at all.
Furthermore that his murder is a horrific shame that has shackled the neck of humanity ... and proves that the inferno is a more suitable place for them, and that a thing is attracted to its "mettle" and their "mettle" is "evil" ...
Then Christ says to the prophets: "I am speaking with you my (spiritual) Fluids gathered here, now, in the names of different Prophets, but you are none other than ME, in other words, you were sent from MY FLUIDS and landed on Earth to COMPLETE THE HEAVENLY MISSION. And that is why I said to the Jews 'I came to continue and not to destroy,' and that is recorded in the gospels of my disciples who have recorded my words and my examples. And is it possible that I destroy what I HAVE BUILT during my prior and successive lives?"
Christ then mentions that had he said : " I am the one who built all these teachings that came through the mouths of Ezekiel, Jeremiah, and Joshua... etc... because I myself am called by all these numerous names they WOULD HAVE STONED ME. "
That's when Christ declares that he followed the common piece of wisdom which said "speak to people according to their level of understanding." and that's why he spoke using SYMBOLS whose meanings would be made clear in due time.
We hope Quadianis may realize that he is no different from Mirza, his claims are based as much on fantasy as was Mirza’s. We leave it here and move on.
5- Marshal Applewhite
He also claimed to be a Messiah. According to the Wikipedia He claimed to be the re-incarnation of Jesus in 1975 and died in 1997. Therefore he successfully passed the test Mirza claimed to be the yard stick to accept someone’s claims of Prophethood or recipient of divine revelations.
6- Sun Myung Moon
Once again we are going to quote paragraphs from Wiki to establish the dates of his claims to demonstrate he successfully passed the test as well.
He was born in 1920 in Korea. On April 17, 1935, when he was 16 (in Korean age reckoning), Moon says he had a vision or revelation of Jesus while praying atop a small mountain. He says that Jesus asked him to complete the unfinished task of establishing God's kingdom on Earth and bring peace to the world.
He is still alive, therefore, according to the test he should be a true claimant too.
7- Muhammad Jaunpuri
Born 19 September 1443, died 23rd April 1505 at the age of 62. At the age of 40 he claimed to be a Prophet of God and Promised Mehdi. In 1496 he performed Hajj and declared himself as Mahdi, but was ignored by the religious scholars and Ulemas in Mecca.
He petty much fulfilled the criterion too, his name was Muhammad, and he claimed to be the progeny of Hadarat Hussain RA. He still has followers in India.
He at least fulfilled two criterion better then Mirza. His name was actually Muhammad and not Ghulam-e-Ahmed like Mirza, secondly he performed the Hajj, which according to some Hadiths traditions will be performed by the Mehdi. The Hajj also eluded Mirza.
8- Yahweh ben Yahweh
Born as Hulon Mitchell Jr in 1935, died in 2007 from prostate cancer. Wiki wrties;
The Nation of Yahweh set up its headquarters in Liberty City, Florida. Yahweh ben Yahweh emphasized that God and all the prophets of the Bible were black and blacks would gain the knowledge of their true history through him. He also emphasized whites and particularly Jews as infidels and oppressors. Lastly he emphasized loyalty to himself as the son of God YHWH.
Here we have another son of God that was involved in murders and was sentenced for these crimes. But funny enough he also had a long life and died at the age of 72 by natural causes.
9- Aleister Crowley
Born in 1875 died 1947, in 1904 started a new religion/religious dogma called “Thelema”.
Thelema is the mystical cosmology Crowley announced in 1904 and expanded upon for the remainder of his life. The diversity of his writings illustrates his difficulty in classifying Thelema from any one vantage. It can be considered a form of religious traditionalism, humanistic positivism and/or an elitist meritocracy.
He died of respiratory infection on 1 December 1947. He had become addicted to the Heroin. He and his doctor died within 24 hours of each other. His supports claims that his Doctor refused to continue his prescription and Crawley put a curse on him. (WIKI)
Any how he passed the test too. It seems that Mirza was in the good company of drug addicts, murderers and embezzlers. Irony for Mirza’s follower is that Mirza was a drug addict according to the evidence displayed earlier. His own followers have leveled charges of embezzlement against him, this we intend to explore in the future. There also had been suspicions and accusations made against Mirza for his involvement in the murders of his opponent.
10- Wallace Fard Muhammad
Then there is Wallace Fard Muhammad another claimant of divinity, whose life from his birth, his origins, his disappearance, his death are all surrounded by mystery. Believed to be born in 1893, place of birth is from New Zealand to Portland, Oregon. Founder of NOI. He disappeared in 1934.But there is evidence that he lived until 1960s. Zafar Ansari a Pakistani Journalist claimed that he was identical with Muhammad Abdullah, a Pakistani Qadiani who had been advisor of Elijah Muhammad since late 1950’s. He had been showed in the 26 November 1976 issue of NOI journal. (WIKI)
Anyhow this was another Messiah and claimant of divinity. It is alleged that he was involved in many criminal activities. It is a known fact that whole of his life is full of mystery. But it seems he has pass the test set out by Mirza, if evidence for him to be alive until 1960 is accurate. This is what FBI files say on Fard.
“Wallace Fard was born 1891 in New Zealand. He was the founder of the Black Muslim sect, "Lost-Found Nation of Islam in North America". Fard arrived in the United States in 1913, settling briefly in Portland, Oregon. He was arrested in 1918 for violation of the Woolwine Act (California prohibition law) and in 1926, for the violation of the State Poison Act (sale of narcotics) and was sentenced to San Quentin. After his release from prison in 1929, he went to Chicago, then on to Detroit as a silk peddler. In 1934, Fard left Detroit and was never heard from again. A San Francisco newspaper article written in 1963 exposed Fard as an enterprising racketeering fake.
In this list we deliberately included modern claimants to prophethood, messiah, to facilitate our arguments on the longevity of their life after their claims. There were many other famous claimants like Ibu Isa Al-Isfhani, David Alroy in the past.
To avoid bias most of the information is obtained from WIKI, which is based on common knowledge and freely available to everyone.
Mirza failed his own test
After giving examples from the Quran that People did killed true Prophets of Allah SWT. Historical and Biblical evidence outside of the Quran that true Prophets mentioned in the Holy Quran were killed well within the period for the duration of revelations to Prophet Muhammad SAW. We now present internal evidence from this cult’s sources that Mirza failed even the test mentioned in the Quran; he says is applicable to him too. Quranic Verse states;
69:44 Now if he [whom We have entrusted with it] had dared to attribute some [of his own] sayings unto Us.
Therefore the test was set for Prophet Muhammad SAW that if he SAW attribute some of his own sayings unto Allah SWT. Did Mirza passed that test? Let’s see the evidence.
Evidence from tadkirah suggest that even just over a year before his death, Mirza was attributing to Allah SWT words which he himself admits he could not remember.
Mr. Zafrullah translated it as;
There were some preliminary words of the revelation but they have escaped my memory. Their purport was the same as that of the revelation (Al-Hakam, Vol. XI, No. 12, April 10, 1907, p. 1).”
The evidence is there in black and white, Mirza admitted that he couldn’t remember the exact words of the revelations. Therefore he used his own words.
This is the exact test and conditions set out by Quran 69:44 which Mirza failed in his own words and recorded in the sources of this cult, what other better evidence Quadianis want? Mirza knew very well this test did not apply to him. He has written it in very unambiguous terms when addressing it as an allegation against his opponent.
But it does not stop here, there are numerous such examples, we include few for our readers.
Another proof that Mirza included his own words to the allege revelations. This happened to be the Divine command to the Angels, but alas, the fake prophet couldn’t remember it, so he decided to add his own words to it. So what is the test Mirza says apply to him too?
There are similar incidents in tadkirah for example on 18 October 1902 and on 24 September 1906; on both occasions Mirza admitted that he couldn’t remember the alleged ilhams.
This is another example, Mirza did not remember what number was written on the forehead but he included it as revelations from God. He writes in Urdu 5,6 or 7, but Mr. Zafrullah realizing stupidity of Mirza didn’t write number 6 in the English translations. He wanted to save Mirza from humiliations and ridicule thinking that Western audience may pick on this absurdity that if 6 was written then why rub it and re-write number 6 on her forehead? Anyhow, this is another example Mirza using his own conjecture for the alleged Word of Allah SWT.
“ Molvi Sher Ali stated; Maseeh-e-Maoud (Mirza) said all our Arabic writings are kind of revelations. Because they are written after special attestation/approval by Khuda (Allah SWT). He (Mirza) said, some time I write words or sentences but do not know the meanings of them. After writing I check them with the dictionary (Mirza giving away the secrets of his Arabic mastery here) then I find out the meanings. Further Molvi (Sher Ali) said, that Hadarat use to send his Arabic books and writings for proof readings to First Ka-Lip and Molvi Muhammad Ahsan, with instructions to perform corrections if needed. The Ka-Lip I used to return them after reading, but Molvi Muhammad Ahsan used to change some words for corrections. Molvi Sher Ali said; Hadarat Maseeh-e-Maoud once said, that even though Molvi Muhammad Ahsan corrects the words but I (Mirza) feel that my word(s) are better suited for the narrations and also more stronger, and Molvis word(s) are weak, but at times I leave his words; to avoid him the disappointment that I removed all his words.”
In our last article on the death of his brother we listed some English ilhams. The translator of tadkraih Zafarullah also played with the alleged words of God and changed the sentences in his English tadkirah to save Mirza humiliations. Here are few examples of these corrections for December 1883 ilhams produced in our previous article.
These are proofs that Mirza let human words mixed with his revelations and allegedly inspired words by God. Mirza written English words in Roman Urdu (this is another classic and a first for any Prophet).
“Though all men should be angry but God is with you, He shall help you, words of God not can exchange.”
This revelation is written by Zafarullah as;
Though all men should be angry yet God is with you. He shall help you. Words of God do not exchange.”
Therefore, even the followers find it bizarre to leave the English ilhams unchanged, written in Urglish (Urdu/English) by Mirza, allegedly revealed by God. Zafrullah decided to correct Mirza’s God errors by changing from Words of God not can exchange to Words of God do not exchange and also used yet instead of but. Another alleged revelations to Mirza
“you have to go Amritsar” change to “you have to go to Amritsar” by Zafarullah.
Another proof can be given from above quoted alleged ilhams from Tadkirah Words of Mirza’s mouth. Once again Zafrullah changed the Ilhams of Mirza, alleged Word of God revealed to Mirza. Mirza writes;
” Glory be to this Lord God maker of Earth and Heaven.” Zafrullah translated it as “Glory be to the Lord God”.
Therefore he corrected another blunder of Mirza; we should say the blunders of Mirza’s god.
We asked why change the proudly revealed alleged English ilhams by Allah SWT? Did Allah SWT made grammatical errors (nauzobillah)? Who gave Zafarullah the rights to change the Word of God? How he can translate English in to English and change it?
Pointing to grammatical mistakes is not our intention here; we just want to demonstrate that alleged revelations to Mirza by Allah SWT were changed by the followers too. It proves the point perfectly that Zafrullah knew very well that these are not revelations from God but bad attempts by Mirza to impress uneducated people around him. Also in the translations Zafarullah admitted that Mirza wrote “I am not sure of the sequence”. This is another proof of interference by Mirza with the alleged Word of God. If you can not remember the sequence then how can you claim it is the exact revelations from God?
We can give more examples of these changes from this cult’s own resources. But the proofs displayed above are enough evidence that Mirza did change the alleged Words of Allah SWT.
A la Carte revelation
In previous articles we have disclosed the secrets of Mirza’s ilhams in different languages. There is a definite pattern in the concoctions of Mirza and his claims. Here his follower Muhammad Sadiq is asking for permission to learn German.
“Few days ago I have seen it in the dream, I am going with you (Mirza), you are dressed in white outfit, your name is Alexander Balitoure and it is my understanding that it is a German word, its meaning is “Sadiq”. Then in dreams it was revealed that it meaning is “Messiah”. Therefore, if you order I shall start learning German language? “M Sadiq 19 March 1903
“It seems from these dreams that there is no permission. It is better to wait unless the reality of German is revealed. Do you know if there is an Arabic newspaper published from Germany, like the Arabic newspaper published from America? We have to find another means of publications.”
Thank God Sadiq didn’t start to learn German language. We all are to read German ilhams from Yalesh. Anyhow this evidence proves that Mirza and his crooked followers were keen to fool the unsuspected people. The easy prays who could be gullible to accept this kind of crap. M Sadiq would learn the language and then pass on the knowledge to Mirza with some helpful books to teach how to make very short basic sentences and voila, ilhams ala carte are ready for the consumptions of the followers. Exactly the practice adopted by Mirza for the English ilhams. The disastrous results are there for all to observe.
In this article we tried to cover substantial grounds from the fact that true Prophets of Allah SWT never make mistakes in the matter of beliefs to the conditions set out by the Holy Quran that Prophets are truthful first and foremost.
After establishing the Quranic evidence for the truthfulness of the True Prophets of Allah SWT, we explore the claim of Mirza on the basis of his writings that the test set out in the Quran for Prophet Muhammad SAW applies to him too, and on the basis of this test he should be accepted as a true Prophet of Allah SWT.
We have proven first and foremost that the test set out in the Quran was for Prophet Muhammad SAW only, and it does not apply to the earlier Prophets either. Examples of Yaha AS and Zakaria As were given, even though they were true Prophets of Allah SWT mentioned in the Holy Quran, but they still were killed by their enemies. In the case of Yaha AS he died at a very young age after only couple of years of preaching. According to Mirza’s claims and logic even Prophet ISA AS (nuazobillah) also failed this test, because he was put on the cross, but did not die according to Mirza.
After establishing the example of three of the earlier Prophets, just before the advent of Prophet Muhammad, we then shown examples after examples of other claimants of Prophethood and revelations who fulfilled the criterion set by Mirza for the truthfulness of a claimant. We are certain that Quadianis, wouldn’t accept any of these claimants as true Prophets or Messiahs. Why they complain if Mirza is considered a liar by Muslims like all these people mentioned; they are declared as heretical liars?
Then we have given proofs that according to the cult’s sources including the writings of Mirza; alleged revelations were changed. The internal records bear testimony to this fact.
It seems Mirza despite his concoctions to attribute the Quranic verses to himself still could not qualify as a Prophet. He was a habitual liar who concocted Ilhams and attributed white lies to Allah SWT. He fails the test of “Sadiqeen” set by Allah SWT in the Holy Quran for true Prophets.
It should be no surprise to any Quadiani that he fits the bill and sit very comfortably with some of the known criminals who have claimed divine revelations, Prophethood and being a Messiah.
In the process we have also shown that Mirza made another blunder to include the verses from the Quran which categorically decreed that Allah SWT has indeed terminated his Will and Practice to send further prophets after Muhammad SAW. He made the claim of being a “Nazir” which subsequently changed to being a “Nabi” few pages apart from the quotation of these verses.
In the end it is befitting to include this verse from Surah An’am;
6:93 And who could be more wicked than he who invents a lie about God, or says, "This has been revealed unto me," the while nothing has been revealed to him? - or he who says, "I, too, can bestow from on high the like of what God has bestowed"? If thou couldst but see [how it will be] when these evildoers find themselves in the agonies of death, and the angels stretch forth their hands [and call]: "Give up your souls! Today you shall be requited with the suffering of humiliation for having attributed to God something that is not true, and for having persistently scorned His messages in your arrogance!"
This verse specified both aspects used by false claimants, in the first instance it decreed that lies attributed as revelations and in second instance it is referring to the descend of Holy Quran bestowed from on high on Prophet Muhammad SAW. The false claimants when attributing these lies try to create the revelations in like wise manner, as were bestowed on the true Prophets.
We produce one of the last uttering of Mirza to his second wife;
“Due to weakness he fall down on the bed and hit his head against the wood; his condition worsened on this I (wife of Mirza) said “O’ Allah (SWT) what is happening?” he (Mirza) replied “it is (happening) what I warned about/used to say”. I asked (Son of Mirza) from mother, did you understood, what he (Mirza) meant? She said “yes”.
Mirza’s son has given a long explanation of this quote in his book “Sirah-tul-Mehdi” but it is just plain and simple a damage control exercise by him. Death is a reality; there is no mystery in death. Mirza knew one day he will die, so did his wife. Here they were not talking about his death, but him being a liar all his life seeing the angel of death, as described in the Holy Quran.
In our future article we will present the evidence and arguments for the other side of the coin that when Mirza claimed the Prophethood and what happened to him after his claims of Prophethood, did he passed this test?
