AhmediMuslim provided a Hadiths from Masnad,
"I am Abdullah Khatimul Nabbiyeen from that time when Adam was yet in the nascent stage".
This Hadiths can be authenticated from the Holy Quran, Allah SWT decreed in the Holy Quran;
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.
There are some very important points to note in this Verse of the Holy Quran.
1- The solemn pledge was taken from Prophets and from the followers of earlier revelations, through their prophets, who they follow, when an apostle comes to you confirming the truth already in your possession, you must believe in him (SAW) and succour him (SAW).
2- The bond was taken by Allah SWT on this condition and this condition alone, the conditions was acknowledged and accepted by the Prophets and after their acceptance Allah SWT asked the Prophets to bear witness and Allah SWT became their Witness.
3- This Apostle is our beloved Prophet SAW, may peace and blessing of Allah SWT and all the Angels be upon him SAW, and the revelation is the Holy Quran.
4- Holy Quran confirms what had been left of the earlier revelations of Allah SWT. After the revelations of the Holy Quran, the prophetic revelations had to stop, because any revelations coming after wards can not be confirmed by the Holy Quran, a fact which is the underline condition set by Allah SWT in this verse.
5- Similarly, no Prophet can come after Prophet Muhammad SAW, because Prophet SAW can not confirm their truth and Quran can not confirm revelations to them, he SAW is definitely the last prophet of any kind, confirmed by this verse of the Holy Quran in support of the famous Verse “KhattamunNabiyyan” (33:40) under discussion on this thread.
6- This pledge was taken from all the Prophets before they were born and before Prophet SAW was born in this world, therefore it has to be taken from their souls before their bodily creation, including that of Adam AS. This verse provides another proof that no Prophet can come after Prophet SAW, all those who have taken the solemn pledge came to this world with revelations before Prophet SAW. Coming of any Prophet after Prophet SAW of whatever description is completely blocked in the Holy Quran by Allah SWT. The Holy Quran decreed all the revelations vouchsafed to the prophets before the coming of prophet SAW and the revelations of the Holy Quran. No room for any revelations no room for any Prophet, end of the story.
7- Allah SWT Bond from all the Prophets and Allah SWT Witness can not be broken under any circumstances whatsoever.
There are other verses in the Holy Quran which clearly establish there are no Prophets or Warners of whatever nature and kind after Prophet 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.
It is quite clear from the above decrees of the Holy Quran Allah SWT has repeated the warnings to mankind. But after Prophet Muhammad SAW this Will of Allah SWT is completed with the revelations of the Holy Quran, when Allah SWT decreed He SWT has completed our Religion for us and bestowed full measures of His SWT blessing on the mankind. Hence Allah SWT decreed in 25:51, “had We so willed” “We could have raised up a Warner in every single community”. This verse clearly indicated the Will of Allah SWT in very clear terms without any ambiguity, no more Warners (Nazirs) or Prophets after Prophet SAW.
But unfortunately, Mirza Ghulam Ahmed of Qadian still declared he has been sent as a Nazir in the world.
Second objection Qadianis make is that if no Prophet can come after Prophet Muhammad SAW than how Prophet Isa As can come back to earth in his second coming? Wouldn’t he break the seal of Prophethood?
I provide answers to their claims and questions.
Most of the Muslims believe in the second coming of Prophet ISA As on the basis of their belief that he As was taken to heavens by Angels and would descend back to earth with Angels. I am not going to list all the Ahadiths which are quoted in support of this belief of Muslims. Qadianis know those Ahdiths very well.
Minority of Muslims believe that Isa As died and than taken to heaven by the Angels, either bodily or spiritually is not important, if he As died, he As died, in that case he As is not coming back.
The problem for Qadianis is that if Isa As is dead, as Qadianis and minority of Muslims believes, then no one can come in his place, there is no concept of re-incarnation or infusion of soul in to another person as Mirza claimed.
If Isa As is alive, as majority of Muslims believes then only he As can come, there is still no room for a pseudo and false Messih like Mirza.
Now let me explain why second coming of Prophet Isa As does not break the decrees of the Holy Quran, and why majority of Muslims believes he As would come back to spent his remaining earthly life and die on earth. Something every human being has to do. Here again, Qadianis are misguided by Mirza, something which can be explained at some other time, for now let’s concentrate on the issues at hand.
1- Prophet Isa As advent was before Prophet Muhammad SAW, he wouldn’t break the seal of Prophet hood; the seal was placed after his As advent. When he completes his earthly life does not make much difference to the seal, his As name is already included in that seal. Therefore, he does not break the Quranic injunction in the Verse 33:40 “But is God’s apostle and seal of all Prophets.”
2- Similarly, he wouldn’t breach the condition set in the above verse 3:81 for the pledge taken by all the Prophets.
I- Isa as was before Prophet Muhammad SAW, his name is included in the list of the Prophets who took pledge on the coming of Prophet Muhammad SAW as the Last Prophet of Allah SWT.
II- Isa As received the revelations before Prophet SAW therefore, the Holy Quran confirms the revelations received by Isa As. Holy Quran mentions the revelations received by Isa As at many places.
III- Muslims believe Isa As will not receive any revelations in his second coming; instead he will be a follower of Prophet Muhammad SAW and will spent reset of his As life according to the teachings of the Holy Quran. Mirza claimed he received the revelations from Allah SWT. This claim of Mirza is against the revelations of the Holy Quran, he breaches the conditions set in the pledge given by all the Prophets. Please remember, Allah SWT decreed He SWT is witness to the pledge taken by all the Prophets. Mirza or any other liar who claims Prophet hood after Prophet SAW is challenging the Witness given and Bond taken by Allah SWT according to the decree in 3:81.
IV- This pledge is supported by many other verses of the Holy Quran, i.e. the only religion acceptable to Allah SWT is Islam (3:81) or 5:3 “but stand in awe of Me! Today have I perfected your religious law for you, and have bestowed upon you the full measure of My blessings, and willed that self-Surrender unto Me shall be your religion”. Both of these verses and many others, point to the fact, that all the Prophets preach the same religion Islam, which is translated as Self-Surrender in English, but the word used in the Holy Quran is “Islam” in 5:31. The Almighty Allah SWT your and my Creator has left us in no doubts by declaring in the Verse 22:78 that He SWT has named us Muslims in the time of our forefather Ibrahim AS and in this divine writ the Holy Quran as “Muslims”. “that Prophet Muhammad SAW bear witness to you to the truth” of the revelations of the Holy Quran and “you bear witness to it before all man kind” (22:78). Hence Prophet Isa As will bear witness to it (the holy Quran) to whole man kind as Muslims do, because he As is a Muslim too, according to the verse of the Holy Quran stated above.
The religion of Islam is completed in the last revelations to the Muslims, which was the religion of all the Prophets too, who took pledge of the coming of the Last prophet SAW and on the revelations vouchsafed to him SAW, i.e. the Holy Quran. That not only the Prophets but their followers will accept him SAW and succour him SAW and accept the revelations of the Holy Quran, which confirms what was revealed before.
As I stated with valid arguments supported from the Holy Quran, it is impossible that any Messenger, Prophet or Warner can come after Prophet Muhammad Saw, or any revelations can be received after Prophet Muhammad SAW. Isa As is included in both the “Seal” and “Pledge” given by all the Prophets. Holy Quran the Last Revelations have absolutely no contradictions in it.
Qadianis claim that Prophets can come after Prophet SAW is false, also their claim is false that “Seal of the Prophets” does not means last of the Prophets but some other meanings which are already listed in recent article.
It is not only this one verse of the Holy Quran which clearly establishes that no Prophets after Prophet Muhammad SAW, no revelations and no one can be included in the Pledge taken by the Prophets, they all were made Prophets on this earth before the advent of Muhammad SAW with their revelations, including Prophet Isa As. The Holy Quran confirms the revelations received by them including the revelations received by Isa As. He AS does not breach any of the two conditions, last Prophet or the pledge given by all the Prophets for Prophet SAW and for the revelations of the Holy Quran.
On the contrary, Prophet Isa As on his second coming to earth, will in person declare that he is not God or Son of God as proclaimed by the Christians; he As will also instruct the Christians, his followers to accept and abide by the revelations of the Holy Quran for which he has already given pledge to Allah SWT with all the prophets.
By his coming and by his adopting the teachings of the Holy Quran, and asking his followers to accept and believes in the teachings of the Holy Quran, he will break the back of the Christianity and will break the cross, no one would be following the pagan symbol of the cross which had nothing to do with Prophet Isa As, and kill the pigs metaphorically, because the Christians after accepting the Quranic teachings and becoming Muslims will stop eating the forbidden meat of the pigs, as stated in the Ahadiths of Prophet Muhammad SAW. Neither of these conditions were fulfilled by Mirza or any other false claimants of Prophethood and false Messiahs. And he As will be the sign of the hour, as stated in the Holy Quran (43:61).
I will finish with the verse of the Holy Quran which declares;
7:89 For, indeed, many facets have We given in this Qur'an to every kind of lesson [designed] for [the benefit of] mankind! However, most men are unwilling to accept anything but blasphemy.
May Allah SWT guide all those who are still living in the darkness and guide them to the right path, the path of all the Prophets of God.
