Heresies of Mirza Qadiani
Articles of faith II: Finality of Prophet Hood
To tackle the issue of finality of Prophethood on our beloved Prophet Muhammad SAW in the context and in the light of writings and claims of Mirza is a daunting task. A lot can be written and plenty of contradictory material from the writings of Mirza could be produced to prove the point. So many people have written about this issue with usual approach, to lump together different quotes from Mirza to prove his claims of Prophet Hood after Prophet Muhammad SAW, showing he violated a basic tenant and belief in the religion of Islam.
This is the most sensitive subject, it arises passion amongst the Muslims. In this article a conscious effort is made to adopt a different and new approach to highlight the heresies of Mirza Ghulam Ahmed Qadiani and his breach of the fundamental belief of the Muslims, which resulted him and his followers declared to be out of the pale of Islam by the Muslims around the world.
Quranic evidence: Finality of Prophethood
Many articles and books are written on this issue containing arguments on the meanings and implications of the following verse in the Holy Quran.
33:40 [And know, O believers, that] Muhammad is not the father of any one of your men, but is God’s Apostle and the Seal of all prophets. And God has indeed full knowledge of everything.
Instead of comparing it with the meanings used for this verse by Mirza and Qadianis; understanding of the Muslims in general of this verse would be shown before moving to produce evidence from this cult related to this topic.
According to the Muslims this verse is denoting that Prophet SAW is the last of the Prophets. Just as a seal (Khatam) marks the end of a document i.e. it is placed at the end of the document after the document is finished/completed attesting the contents of the documents. This ties up nicely with the verse in the Holy Quran announcing the completion of the religion of Islam.
Apart from this, the term Khatam is also synonymous with Khitam, which denotes the "end" or "conclusion" of a thing or task or a chain in case of Prophethood. It means that the message revealed through Muhammad SAW - the Qur’an - must be regarded as the culmination and the end of all prophetic revelation.
Mirza was well aware of this fact, he writes;
The other allegations made against me that I am denier of Laila-tul- Qadar, miracles, Miraj, end of Prophet Hood (on Prophet Muhammad SAW) and a claimant of Prophet Hood, all these objections are false and are based on lies. In all these matters, my religion (beliefs) is the same which is the religion (beliefs) of other members of Jamat of Ahle Sunnah. These objections by my opponents and critics are false/ wrong, which are based on my writings in the books Tawzeeh-e-Mariam and Azala-e-Auham. Now, I announce in clear terms to the Muslims, I believe in the finality of Prophet Hood on Prophet SAW, I consider the person who is the denier of the finality of Prophet Hood (on Prophet Muhammad SAW) out of the pale of Islam and a non-believer. Similarly I am a believer in the angels, miracles and Laila-tul-Qadar.
After giving this undertaking, Mirza as was his practice, used every imaginable excuse to declare himself as Prophet, and to falsely equate himself with Prophet Muhammad SAW. His deceptions and lies and that’s of Lahori Qadianis are already exposed in the first segment in the article “Recitation of Kalima”; the Lahoris try to adopt the same cunning practices adopted by Mirza.
It is in the nature and purpose of a Prophet to receive religious education from Gabriel. This is proven that now the prophetic revelations have discontinued until the Day of the Judgement.
These two arguments together with other arguments are included on the Web sites of Lahoris. This lie of Mirza is already busted in our previous article. Lahoris are opportunistic liars, their sole purpose is to fool the Muslims by claiming that they believe in the finality of Prophethood on Prophet Muhammad SAW and that Qadianis are wrong to claim and accept Mirza as a Prophet, though Mirza (according to discredited Lahoris) never claimed the prophethood. They also include another quotations which is just a year before the death of Mirza, in which he writes;
A charge is level against me that I am a claimant of Prophethood, and I have formed a new religion, or I am thinking to have a separate Qibla, having devised different “Namaz” (Salah) prayers, or that I have cancelled the (Holy) Quran and devised my own Quran. In response to all these allegations I can only say “lanatullaha alal kazabeen” (curse be on the liars).
We can only say, curse of Allah SWT, all His Angels, and All the Muslims be on you Mirza Kazzab. Mirza you did claim the Prophethood, but until last, until the day of your death you were a liar and a deceitful person. You wrote in double speech and issued contradictory claims to fool the Muslims and your uneducated followers.
Different meanings used by Mirza and his followers for the word “Khatam-un-Nabbiyan”
Mirza Tahir, Ka-lip IV in a sermon delivered on 7th April 1985 stated; (All quotes are from their official website from a book which is composed on this sermon)
“They have no inkling of the true meaning and significance of ‘Khatamul-Anbiyya’ and ‘Khatame-Nabbuwat’. They inherited a word or two from their ancestors but remain ignorant of the true meaning of this important concept.”
Mirza has the best understanding of this word, claimed Ka-Lip IV
The depth and true understanding of ‘Khatame-Nabbuwat’ possessed by the Promised Messiah (peace be on him) was without equal. The Ulema and other opponents cannot achieve an iota of this understanding.
Surely, we agree, nobody has twisted the meanings of this term more than Mirza in the history of Islam. We intend to pose a test for the followers of Mirza at the end of this article, to prove that Mirza indeed did have the best understanding of this term, albeit a false one based on lies and deceptions.
Ka-Lip IV writes further that no Muslim before Mirza could grasp the meanings of this term;
The Promised Messiah (peace be on him) says: “The charge levelled against me and my Jamaat that we do not believe the Holy Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be on him) to be ‘Khatamun- Nabbiyeen’ is a calumny. The fact is, the force, the certainty, the passion and the solid conviction with which we believe the Holy Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be on him) to be ‘Khatamul-Anbiyya’ is so strong and overwhelming and of such excellence that it is a hundred thousand times stronger than the belief of our accusers. They have no inkling of the true meaning and significance of ‘Khatamul-Anbiyya’ and ‘Khatame-Nabbuwat’. They inherited a word or two from their ancestors but remain ignorant of the true meaning of this important concept.
Mirza was given Divine knowledge of this Word
Ka-Lip IV quoted Mirza;
We, on our part, believe the Holy Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be on him) to be ‘Khatamul-Anbiyya with a God given insight into the meaning of this lofty station. This elixir of heavenly wisdom that I have enjoyed is beyond the imagination of those not allowed to partake of it.”(Malfoozat - Sayings of the Promised Messiah (peace be on him) vol. 1 pg. 328).
The Promised Messiah (peace be on him) further says: The sum total and the essence of our belief is enshrined in “La llaha illalaho Muhammadur Rasool lullah: there is no God but Allah, Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah”. The strong faith which we uphold in this life and with which, by God’s Grace, we shall leave this worldly abode, is that our Lord and Master, Muhammad Mustafa (peace and blessings of Allah be on him) is ‘Khatamun-Nabbiyeen’ and ‘Khatamul- Mursaleen’. He is the best of all prophets. With his advent faith was perfected and reached its zenith and is now the only route which directs man to attain closeness to our creator.” (Azala- i-Auham pg. 69)
It is established that according to above quotations Mirza says the meanings of this word is that Prophet SAW is best of all the Prophets.
Mirza also said through Prophet SAW, the faith (Islam) is perfected and reached its height.
Why then do we need anyone else to revive Islam? How some one can add to a religion, which is already completed and perfected according to the decree in the Holy Quran (5:3),“today have I perfected your religion for you, and have bestowed upon you the full measure of My blessings”.
How some one like Mirza can increase the blessing of Allah SWT, when Allah SWT clearly decreed that He SWT has bestowed the full measure of His SWT blessing on Muslims through Quran and Prophet Muhammad SAW?
How a liar like Mirza can add to already completed religion of Islam and increase the full blessing of Allah SWT? Can he increase in something which is already given fully according to the Quranic decree? Given that his credibility is destroyed completely, gradually in our articles, together with deliberate lies of his followers.
Revelations can have flaws (nauzobillah)?
During this sermon Ka-Lip IV further said;
“That is why he was chosen to be a recipient of the divine revelation that was the most powerful, flawless, noblest and the most comprehensive.” (Surma- i-Chasma- i-Arya pg. 23)
Mirza, are you sure of what you are saying? Most flawless? You mean the revelations can have flaws? Yes Mirza, the alleged revelation to false prophets and liars like you can have flaws, which we have demonstrated in our previous articles, but the revelations to the true Prophets of Allah SWT can never ever have flaws and errors.
Mirza’s Flawed knowledge of the Holy Quran
The Promised Messiah (peace be on him) says: “Our Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be on him) was an embodiment of the beauty and grace found in all divine dispensations. As the Holy Quran says “Fa Be Huda Ho Muqtade…” “so follow thou their guidance…” (Ch 6, V. 91). Meaning that the Holy Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be on him) should follow the guidance given to all prophets. The one encompassing in him all divine guidance would therefore be the most outstanding and most exalted prophet. (Chasma Massihi, pg. 61)
Mirza quoted V 90 of Surah An’am; in verses 85 and 86, Prophet Zakria As, Yahyah As, Isa As, Ilyas As, Ismael As, Yonus As, Loot As are mentioned with the proclamations that they were righteous Prophets, given favour and were placed on higher status and station compared to ordinary people. The preceding verses decreed that some of their forefather and brothers of theirs were also elected by Allah SWT and guided to the right path. And Allah SWT guides to whom He Will to the right path. If they the Prophets and those who were guided to the right path, had they ascribed divinity to any one else then Allah SWT, all their good deed would have counted for naught.
After the back ground and context, now we quote both 89 and 90 for full understanding;
6:89[but] it was to them that We vouchsafed revelation, and sound judgment, and prophethood. And now, although the unbelievers may choose to deny these truths, [know that] We have entrusted them to people who will never refuse to acknowledge them.
The message in this verse is for all the followers of earlier Prophets, in particular for the Jews and the Christians; in the context of recent and recent past history at the time of the revelations of the Holy Quran. Because of their ignorance and opposition to the teachings, authority and Prophethood of earlier Prophets, Allah SWT has given this blessing to the new People i.e. Muslims , who according to the Quranic teachings have to accept and exalt the status of all the past True Prophets of Allah SWT and they will never refuse to acknowledge them. The Muslims would never deny their Prophethood and their teachings and revelations given to the earlier true Prophets.
This command was ignored by Mirza, he has attacked Prophet Isa As of the Holy Quran, his lies against the revelations in the Holy Quran were produced in our earlier article “Mirza attacks Prophet Isa As” and in our recent article “Recitation of Kalima”.
The word used in above verse is “Yakafiro” deniers, or unbelievers i.e. Kaffirs. Proof yet again from the Holy Quran that Mirza was a Kaffir to deny the truthfulness and teachings of Prophet Isa As of the Holy Quran and in the process to attribute white lies to the Holy Quran.
The command and admonition is to all the mankind, and not to Prophet SAW, as Mirza falsely tried to imply. This verse is continuation from the V89, which ended on the note that now, the blessings have been passed on to and entrusted to the new people i.e. Muslims who would never deny them, even though the followers of earlier Prophets may deny that this blessing is passed to the Muslims.
In verse 90 it is also decreed “No reward do I ask of you for this Truth. What was this truth? This truth is mentioned in the V88, “And had they ascribed divinity to aught beside Him- in vain, would have been all (the good) that they ever did”.
Not surprisingly, Mirza also didn’t conformed with this command in the Holy Quran, he claimed divinity for himself, the verse clearly described that all the good they did would be in vain for the people who ascribed divinity to anyone beside Allah SWT.
It is abundantly clear, Mirza has absolutely no understanding of the Holy Quran, which put in to prospective the claims of Ka-Lip that such understanding of the Holy Quran and the verse was never given to anyone. Nevertheless these verses also prove that Mirza himself was a denier or a Kaffir.
Why there is a need for Mirza?
Ka-Lip IV continues;
The Promised Messiah (peace be on him) says: “It is no longer necessary to follow separately each previous prophet and his teachings, since the message brought by Muhammad (peace and blessings of Allah be on him) encompasses and surpasses all previous teachings. All other paths leading to God are now closed. All verities leading to God are contained in this teaching. There is no other truth after this. All true prior teachings are contained in these teachings. His prophethood is the culmination of all prophets and rightly so. (Al-Wassiyyat, pg. 17-18)
Why there is a need for Mirza?
Why then Mirza persistently lied about the teachings of the Holy Quran? And as he wrote himself, when all verities leading to God are contained in the Quranic teachings then why oh why there is any need for revelations after the Holy Quran? If there is no truth after the Holy Quran and Prophet Muhammad SAW, then surely, whoever claims that he has been given the Prophetic revelations is a liar indeed. Mirza you were priceless.
Yet another lie of Mirza against Holy Quran exposed
In his Persian poetry, the Promised Messiah (peace be on him) says: ‘Ahn Rasool Khash… Suwai Mustafa.” That prophet whose name is Muhammad, his pure and faultless guidance alone, I hold firmly in my hands. He is the best of all prophets and the best of all mankind.
In this context, I would invite you to read the Promised Messiah’s (peace be on him) dissertation on “Da Na Fata Dalla” – ‘Then the Prophet drew near to Allah; then Allah leaned down towards him.’ (Holy Quran ch. 53 v.9) [Surma- i-Chashma-i-Arya pg. 82-87).
The Ka-Lip IV quoted from the book of Mirza. Mirza wrote that Allah SWT leaned down towards Prophet SAW. Whenever we are writing an article on the heresies of Mirza, we are lost for words to describe the abhorrent nature of this liar. We purposefully selected this sermon as evidence because through it, we can unmask Mirza from the quotes used by the Ka-Lip IV and also the crookedness of this Ka-Lip (IV) who claimed he was chosen by God.
It also provides plenty of references to Muslim brothers and sisters from the books of Mirza on this topic, making it easier to understand his writings and his lies.
Verse quoted by Mirza is V8, which decreed;
53:8 and then drew near, and came close,
Let’s look at the preceding verses to see the right context and to establish did Allah SWT lean down towards Prophet Muhammad SAW, as claimed by Mirza?
53:5 something that a very mighty one has imparted to him:
This verse is describing Gabriel the bearer of the revelations to Prophet SAW and to all the earlier true Prophets.
According to the Quranic teachings and authentic traditions, Prophet SAW only saw Gabriel As twice in his true angelic manifestation, i.e. with his As true shape and nature. This is the real meanings of the word “Istawa” in this context. These true manifestations of Gabriel occurred in period of “Fatrat al-Wahi”. This incident is described in 81:23 and in “Ascension”.
81:23 he truly beheld [the angel - beheld] him on the clear horizon;
We can only laugh at Mirza for his knowledge of the Holy Quran. He had the front to claim he was chosen by Allah SWT to revive Islam. How can he revive Islam when he persistently lies about the revelations in the Holy Quran? When he can not even understand very basic revelations in the Holy Quran? Qadianis should ponder on it. It is very easy to make lofty and outrageous claims but when we look at the evidence in cold light of the day, Mirza is found wanting.
Prophet Muhammad SAW has the highest rank amongst Prophets and seal of approval for coming Prophets (nauzobillah)
We come to the main point and sole purpose of this segment apart from Mirza’s lies and his injure knowledge of the Holy Quran we exposed in between the quotes used by Ka-Lip IV.
The Promised Messiah (peace be on him) writes, “He was declared ‘Khatamul-Anbiyya’ not in the sense that mankind would be deprived of his spiritual blessings for all times to come, rather, in the sense that he alone was the Master of the Seal and all spiritual blessings would be conferred only through him. Further, the door to divine revelations would not be closed on his Ummah till the day of judgement. There is no other prophet with his rank. He is ‘The Khatim’. He alone holds the seal. Prophethood can still be invested through his seal of approval and on his followers alone.” (Haqiqatul-Wahi pg. 27-28)
As we said earlier, after giving assurances to the Muslims that he believes in the finality i.e. end of Prophet Hood on Prophet SAW, Mirza showed his true colours. Secondly, this quote from the book of Mirza also put to rest the claims of Lahori Qadianis that Mirza believed in the finality of Prophet Hood on Prophet Muhammad SAW. Here he clearly written, Prophet Muhammad SAW is the Master of the Seal of Prophet Hood, the door of divine revelations is not closed to the Ummah of Prophet Muhammad SAW until the day of the Judgment. The prophet hood can still be invested on the followers of Prophet SAW, with his SAW seal of approval.
Ka-Lip continued and quoted Mirza again;
The final authority rests with the governor. Similarly, the one in whom prophethood found its perfection was declared The Seal of The Prophets - ‘Khatamun-Nabbiyeen’, as there is no rank higher than his. (Mobahesa Shahjahanpur pg.24- 25).
We got another meaning of the term, it denotes perfection of Prophet Hood on Prophet SAW, and he SAW is holder of the highest rank.
Khatamiyyat means perfection
Here too, we find ‘Khatamiyyat’ meaning perfection and ultimate in prophethood and authority rather than meaning ‘the last’. Some Ulema have described ‘Khatamiyyat’ to mean a signet ring used for adornment, denoting that the Holy Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be on him) imparted heavenly beauty and grace to all prophets. He was The Seal that testified to the truth of all other prophets. This, the Promised Messiah (peace be on him) argued was the Holy Prophet’s (peace and blessings of Allah be on him) favour on all other prophets. That is why I have asserted that ‘Khatamiyyat’ is beyond the limitations of time and space. It cannot be taken to mean ‘the last’. It has a much broader and universal implication.
Prophet Hood still continues
There is, however, one form of prophethood that has not come to an end. The prophethood granted by virtue of unqualified obedience to him and which derives its lustre from the divine light of Muhammad (peace and blessings of Allah be on him). It continues because of him and his image. (Chasma- i-Maarfat pg. 324)
This in fact is the second segment of the article just published, this concept of continuity of Prophet Hood after Prophet SAW is overwhelmingly present in the writings of Mirza but Lahoris due to their dishonesty and deceptions, are still paddling their lies after 100 years.
Mirza is a Prophet because he is a true follower of Prophet SAW
Recalling his status as the Promised Messiah and the divinely bestowed title of prophethood, he says in his book, Tajalliyat- i- illahiya (pg. 24-25)
“This status and title has been bestowed on me only because I am a true follower and servant of the Holy Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be on him). If I had not been from his Ummah and if I had not been his follower, then even if my services and talents had been as massive and tall as the mountains of this world, I would not have acquired or been bestowed the title and honor of direct communication with God. This is true because all doors to prophethood are now closed, except the portal and the prophethood of the Holy Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be on him). After him, there can be no independent prophet with a new law or code. Now, the only type of prophethood that remains is that which is without any new shariah other than of Islam and which is bestowed on a true follower or servant of the Holy Prophet of Islam.”
“I would not have acquired or been bestowed the title and honour of direct communication with God.”
Acquired, are you sure Mirza? You mean to say that Prophethood can be acquired? How one can acquire Prophethood? Is it available in a shop? Is it a degree acquired from a University? What price would you pay to acquire it? Are you talking in the context of “acquiring knowledge”? You mean the Prophethood can be acquired by knowledge? By research? We know Mirza you used this acquired knowledge on another major issue, which we intend to expose in the future.
We throw these challenges to the followers of Mirza.
1- Prove that Mirza was a true follower of Prophet Muhammad SAW on any major and fundamental belief. And he annihilated himself in the love of Prophet SAW as he claimed. That he has likeness to him SAW, that he obeyed the commands of the Holy Quran that he didn’t attack Prophet Isa As and also at different places our beloved Prophet Muhammad SAW.
2- Prove any major service Mirza performed for Islam.
3- Prove that Mirza did not bring any new Shariah. He definitely tried to abolish the Shariah of Prophet SAW by claiming that the command to strive in the name of Allah SWT is annulled after his advent.
4- Evidence was produced in the article “Repeat of an Error” that according to Mirza only window of Prophet Hood open is following “Sirat-e-Siddique”. Who was this Siddique? It has to be a person to have a Sirat. Secondly, how did Mirza followed the Sirat of this Siddique? Proofs in Mirza’s own words were provided that he lied on the bravery of his grand father. Until now, no Qadiani has defended Mirza and prove that he was Sadiq.
The Promised Messiah (peace be on him) holds the view that one of the meanings of ‘Khatamun- Nabbiyeen’ is that a law-bearing prophet can no longer come because ‘Khatamiyyat’ encompasses the ultimate in prophethood and its teachings. A perfect teaching needs no replacement unless it is tampered with. On one hand we have Allah’s guarantee that Quran will be protected, on the other hand we have the Holy Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be on him) as the ‘Khatamun-Nabbiyeen’. It therefore stands to reason that a new law is not needed. The teachings of the Holy Quran and the Holy Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be on him) will sustain us till the end of times. The Holy Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be on him) is reported to have said that he and the Day of Judgment are as close together as two fingers of a hand. Meaning his law and teachings will continue till the end of times without interference or abrogation. This is exactly what the Promised Messiah (peace be on him) has said. Our opponents attack us, claiming dichotomy in our belief. We believe that the Holy Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be on him) is ‘Khatamun-Nabbiyeen’ and that the door to the advent of a non- law bearing prophet is still open. This is what riles them.
As we said before, we will write separate articles on other issues arising from these quotations, but we can not resist the temptation to raise some valid points.
1- Ka-Lip IV says a perfect teaching needs no replacement unless it is tampered with. So why we needed Mirza and his teachings? Did he mean to say that Quranic teachings are tempered with? Did he mean to say that the promise contained in the Holy Quran by Allah SWT to protect Quran from corruption is incorrect (nauzobillah)?
2- No new Law is needed; the Law of Prophet SAW will stand until the day of the Judgment. Then why is the need of Mirza or any one else?
3- Why Mirza did replaced the perfect teachings of the Holy Quran? For example he;
A- Cancelled the command of striving in the cause of Allah SWT.
B- Practically replaced Zakat with Chanda’s for the benefit of his family.
Mirza is an independent Prophet
These writings reject the theory that the Messiah of Nazareth will come back in his physical form as he would not belong to the Ummah. Moreover, he would need to learn the Quran and the Hadith. Some would claim that this would be taught to him by God. In that event, he would be an independent prophet, not needing the mediation of the Holy Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be on him). All these arguments are contrary to the thinking and writings of the holy men and saints of the past.
We intend to write a separate article on the issues of Law bearing prophets, i.e. Independent according to Mirza and his followers and non-Law bearing, i.e. dependent prophets. We leave this argument for now. In future articles on Prophet ISA As we will also expand and investigate the twist applied by the Ka-Lip IV “in his (as) Physical form.”
But revealing indeed is Ka-Lip IV acceptance that Mirza is an independent Prophet, which can be deduce from his reasoning to prove the status of Isa As as independent Prophet. He said that some claim that Isa As would be taught the Holy Quran by Allah SWT in that case he As would be an independent Prophet because he would not need the mediation of the Holy Prophet SAW. He As therefore would break the seal of Prophet Hood. So what was the status of Mirza based on the arguments presented by Ka-Lip against the second coming of Prophet Isa As?
Mirza in RK V 14 P394 writes;
“Mehdi is not a student of anybody. I swear that this to be my condition. Nobody can prove that any person has taught me the Holy Quran”.
Similar claims are printed in Tadkirah which is a divine book, we must emphasise.
Mirza said he was taught the Holy Quran by Allah SWT, therefore, the objection raised by the Ka-Lip for the second coming of Isa As applied to Mirza too. In that case he has broken the seal of the Prophet Hood, by becoming an independent prophet, using the arguments and logic of Ka-Lip IV.
There are other absurdities in this quote;
1- Mirza says that he is been sent to the people whose forefathers were unaware of divine revelations. Mirza as a matter of fact, preached to the Muslims, majority of his followers, bar few, were Muslims; who due to the lies and deception of Mirza became Qadianis. Muslims already had the Quranic teachings with them therefore they were not unaware of divine revelations.
2- Mirza’s claims of him being taught Quran by Allah SWT is bogus indeed, we are systematically destroying this myth created by Mirza by constant lies and deception against the revelations of the Holy Quran.
Overwhelming evidence of his lies against the revelation of the Holy Quran was presented in previous articles; more presented in this article too. Future articles will demonstrate even more and more.
This is the height of ignorance by the Qadiani cult. We simply can not blame the ordinary followers of Mirza, when a Ka-Lip who claimed to be chosen by God, is destroying the whole foundation of his cult, due to his ignorance or to put it correctly in his cleverness.
We can only thank Ka-Lip IV for admitting Mirza did break the seal of Prophet Hood by claiming to be an Independent Prophet to use their own analogy and reasoning. And also that he did not derive his Prophet Hood from Prophet SAW, as he claimed; he was taught the Holy Quran directly by Allah SWT.
Couple this fact and the fact that Mirza claimed Prophet Muhammad SAW did not understand the meanings of some of the Verses in the Holy Quran, a picture of a person, who is independent from our Holy Prophet SAW emerges. Even if we do not ask the question, how Mirza could be shadow or buroz of Prophet SAW, when he did not have any attributes of Prophet SAW?
We wish Ka-Lip IV was alive today we could had some interesting conversations with him. At least he had the courage to do Q & A sessions, albeit, staged, closely monitored and organised affairs. Unfortunately, Masroor is completely devoid of any knowledge and confidence, no wonder he does not stage Q & A sessions.
Allah SWT shows His SWT’s miracles in mysterious ways, indeed. We don’t need to show the evidence that Mirza off course had teachers, but why object, when job is already done for you?
What is the meaning of the Word Khatam?
Even though we have seen many articles on the meanings of the Word used in the Holy Quran to declare that Prophet Hood has culminated on the person of Prophet Muhammad SAW, and there to be no other prophet of any kind after him SAW. But we have never seen this evidence quoted anywhere before. We would stand corrected if the evidence is produced, but it is our understanding at the time of writing this article.
From earlier quotations used in the sermon, different meanings given by Mirza can be deduced;
1- He is the best of all the prophets.
2- Through Prophet SAW, the faith (Islam) is perfected and reached its height.
3- Master of the Seal and all spiritual blessings would be conferred only through him.
4- He is ‘The Khatim’. He alone holds the seal. Prophethood can still be invested through his seal of approval and on his followers alone.”
5- ‘Khatamun-Nabbiyeen’, as there is no rank higher than his.
6- A law-bearing prophet can no longer come because ‘Khatamiyyat’ encompasses the ultimate in prophethood and its teachings
7- Holy Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be on him) is ‘Khatamun-Nabbiyeen’ and that the door to the advent of a non- law bearing prophet is still open.
In all the arguments presented earlier in this article by Mirza and Ka-Lip IV, different meanings used to demonstrate that “KhattamunNabiyyan” means Prophet SAW is the seal of the Prophets or best of the Prophets. Nevertheless, the term was synonymous with the Prophets, i.e. he SAW is best amongst the Prophets. Meaning there were many Prophets (124,000 by some estimate); even if we take the examples of the Prophets mentioned by name in the Holy Quran; Prophet Muhammad SAW was the best or of the highest rank, or most exalted amongst them.
The Last word on the term Khatam
In his book Azala-e-Auham P172 Mirza writes;
Ghulam Ahmed Qadiani Ponder (he is the) seal of Khuda (Allah SWT) (word used by Mirza is Khattam RabulAlameen). In it there is a hint that in this century (Allah SWT) has appointed the reviver of religion. Human wisdom can not accept, that Proud Khuda (Allah SWT) wouldn’t timely disclose arrival of a Reviver of the century at the time of a great Fitna.
First observation to make, there is a full stop after the word “Khatam RabulAlameen, therefore, the following sentences after the phrase Khattam RabulAlameen are separate and not the continuation from this phrase.
In the Persian translation of his name Mirza added 1300, which is the sum total of his name according to Mirza, calculated by using cabalistic practice of Gemetria. We have another article almost ready on this issue, therefore, we move on to the issue at hand. But it is also possible here he is writing 1300 A.H. meanings he has chosen or elected in 1300 A.H.
This is rather interesting and an outrageous quote, it is quoted as an alleged divine revelation, therefore it will be interesting to explore it in future articles, to expose Mirza. The figure of 1300 is added in the Persian commentary by Mirza, it is not in the alleged revelations. But there is no doubt that Mirza has used the Phrase “Khatam Rabulalameen” with his name Ghulam Ahmed Qadiani and interlinked it with the word “Fazalika”, this could only mean that Mirza is the “Khatam Rabulalameen”. No other meaning can be derived from this Ilham. There is a continuation from his name to the term used and then Mirza placed a full stop in the revelations before writing other sentences. This Sentence is complete on its own.
We listed different meanings according to Mirza, to highlight all the meanings given for the Word “KhattamunNabayyian”. The main purpose was to highlight the arguments presented by Mirza, to show that Prophet SAW is the best of, or seal of the Prophets and not the final Prophet, as per Muslim beliefs and teachings of Islam.
Therefore, we ask Qadianis, what this phrase means in the above quotation?
1- Allah SWT is the seal of Rabulalameen (nauzobillah)?
2- Allah SWT is the best of Rabulalameen (Nauzobillah)?
3- Allah SWT is the culmination of Rabulalameen (Nauzobillah)?
4- Through the seal of Allah SWT, other Rabulalameen can come (nauzobillah)?
5- No Rabulalameen can come outside the seal of Allah SWT (nauzobillah)?
6- Only the non-Shari Rabulalameen can come (nauzobillah)?
7- Or is it an ultimate insult and it means Mirza is the seal of Rabulalameen (nauzobillah)? This is the only correct meanings which can be derived from the alleged revelations of Mirza.
In this case all of the above descriptions and meanings given for the term “khatam” by Mirza and his followers apply to him in conjunction with RabulAlameen?
We know that Qadianis will create hue and cry, accusing us to misrepresent the writings of Mirza. But they should remember we have gone to great lengths in this article to produce the authentic quotes from the writings of Mirza. Quotes which were used by their Ka-Lip IV to demonstrate that no one understood the meanings of the word “Khatam” better then Mirza.
Fact of the matter is Mirza has used this word as an alleged divine revelation. His use of the word Khatam with Rabulalameen just destroyed each and every meaning given by him and his followers including Ka-Lip IV.
That’s it folks, this is the last word on the word “khatam unNabiyyan” and on explanations given by Mirza and his followers. Mirza is caught in the web of his own lies and deceit.
Word of advice for his followers, we always back up our writings and articles. We advice his followers to desist from using their usual tactics to provide justifications and taweels. No amount of twisting can break Mirza free from his lies and his blatant use of the word Khatam with the phrase Rabulalameen. They should remember Mirza didn’t use the term Katam for Mujaddid and with the word Mujaddid, he used it as “Khatam Rabulalameen”.
Next the issue of death of Prophet Isa As and Mirza’s claims will be exposed, with analysis and expose of Mirza’s book “Jesus in India”. After the series on Mirza’s lies on the death of Isa As are exposed, the focus will be back on the issue of Mirza’s lies on different kind of Prophethoods, his claims in this regard and the issue of his call.
