MY LAST WORD
Allah’s Prophet Muhammad (Sallallaho Alaihe Wassallam) has informed that some major signs shall precede the occurrence of the Resurrection Day. Among them are: Appearance of Hazrat Mahdi,( ) emerging of Dajjal, the one-eyed impostor, and descending of Hazrat Masih Isa Bin Mariam (as) in this world. This Tradition has been received as a Mutawatir Hadith.
insolent adventurists sprang up in the past, claiming to be Mahdi or Masih but
their claims paled down on the touchstone of truth and facts. However, their
protagonists in some numbers are still alive. Taking his cue from these liars,
mirza ghulam ahmed of qadiyan (
In Rajab, 1399, A.H., I wrote a pamphlet which was in reply to a letter, a qadiyani had sent me. In this I enumerated some holy utterances of the holy Prophet (Sallallaho Alaihe Wassallam) in this regard. These were but the same as mirza ghulam ahmed had himself earlier acknowledged. mirza admitted that these special signs must precede before Masih comes forth in the world. Despite what he had admitted, he came out later with the claim that he himself was Mahdi and Masih knowing well that he was telling lies and making false claims.
My pamphlet, which is now before you titled as Shinakht, (Identification), has been published several times in the past but here is its revised edition.
May Allah, the Exalted, grant it approbation and turn it into an instrument for guiding the misguided ones.
Muhammad Yusuf Ludhianvi
Rajab 14,1410, A.H.
A qadiyani gentleman once wrote me a piece of advice. He told me:
“You have made lots of plans and schemes for the destruction and ruin of mirza ghulam ahmed. You have shown all possible hostility to his God and Prophet. Now, come, be kind to yourself for God’s sake. If you can’t reform your own self, at least don’t invite God’s displeasure to hit you because you are misguiding people and carrying them away from what is true.”
My answer was: “Indeed, indeed, I value your advice. mirza ghulam ahmed, if really a Masih and a Mahdi, my denial of him amounts to my denying Allah. I stand exposed, inviting His displeasure because I am misguiding people. But same to you, my brother-in-humanity, if it happens the other way round, that is, if mirza ghulam ahmed turns out to be a cheat”.
While analysing the contents of your letter I saw that you quoted one statement of the holy Prophet (Sallallaho Alaihe Wassallam). You wrote that he said: “When Masih and Mahdi appear, convey to them my salaam.” Now, I ask you: Along with this message, the Prophet (Sallallaho Alaihe Wassallam) must have also told the Ummah how to recognise and identify Masih, because unless he is recognised how would the Ummah convey to him the Prophet’s message of salaam. Also, when we should expect Masih to come; how long he will stay; what about his physical looks, his dress; where he will go; what he will do; when and where he will die; and so on. Yes, for your information, all necessary signs and details about these matters have been bequeathed to the Ummah in the exalted Traditions of the holy Prophet (Sallallaho Alaihe Wassallam).
analyse these signs one by one. Let’s see, whether mirza fits into them. If he
does, OK, take him on as Masih and call others to do the same, but if he does
not, then, I shall take you for a ride and tell everybody that mirza ghulam
ahmed was an ultra-hoax. I wouldn’t stop at that. I would also say that
chicanery has degrees; Syed Muhammad Jaunpuri (U.P.,
Therefore, it is a duty, yours, mine and that of everybody to focus mirza into the light of those identification signs the holy Ahadith specify. If mirza’s parameter blurs, be honest to reject him. Take up my gauntlet since it’s you who have stirred up the hornets’ peace. I proceed with Allah’s guidance:
1. Times of Hazrat Masih’s Arrival
When will Hazrat Masih (as) come is obviously the foremost question. For an answer to it, I quote your grand-sire mirza ghulam ahmed himself from his book Haqiqat-ul Wahi, p.193:
Translation: First sign: “Said Allah’s Prophet (Sallallaho Alaihe Wassallam) Allah will raise for this at the head of each century, one person who will revive Deen for it. (Abu-Dawood). And this is also unanimously agreed among Ahle-Sunnat that the last revivalist of this Ummah is the promised Masih who will appear in the last era. Now this should be enquired into whether this era is the last one or not? Jews and Christians, both the nations agree, that this is the last era. Ask them, if you like”. (Haqiqat ul Wahi, p.193)
Mirza in the above statement has tacitly alluded to himself as Masih.
Mirza check-mated in the light of his above statement
*Major premises: as established by Mirza himself:
(a) Saying of the holy Prophet (Sallallaho Alaihe Wassallam) that one revivalist will head every century.
(b) Unanimous agreement among Ahle-Sunnat that Masih will be the last revivalist of the last era.
(c) Jews and Christians agree that mirza’s period is the last era.
*Minor premises: also established by mirza
(a) Fourteenth century is the last century.
(b) In it will come the last revivalist.
(c) The last revivalist will be Masih.
(a) Fourteenth century is finished.
(b) Fifteenth century has started.
(c) New revivalist will come in fifteenth century.
(a) Mirza is not the last revivalist.
(b) Mirza is not Masih.
(c) Mirza is an arch-hoax.
I expect my qadiyani well-wisher to understand this much of geometry at least! If honest, let him give a straight verdict:
That mirza is justm irza
Neither Masih nor Mahdi,
But only a Masquerade
Patriarch of progeny
Of the gullible and the cunning.
2. Duration of Masih’s stay on earth
Second question is how long Masih will live in this world. The Ahadith say forty years. mirza mahmud ahmed acknowledged it (Haqiqat un Nubuwwah p. 192). His father, mirza ghulam ahmed, had already declared likewise. He rather claimed to have had a revelation to the effect that he would preach for forty years. In his Nishan-e-Aasmani on p. 13 his poetic vein throbbed when he quoted Shah Niamat Ullah Wali and conveniently fitted the contents of his couplet upon himself.
Translation: “Till forty years O brother mine, era of that cavalier, I see”. (mirza calling himself a cavalier)
Mirza further writes:
Translation: “From that day, the Imam will reveal himself, as one who is divinely inspired; he will have a life of forty years thereafter. Now let it be clear that this humble has been commissioned for preaching the truth by special revelation in fortieth year of his life and has been given a good news that ‘thy age is up to 80 years or thereabouts’. Therefore, by this revelation my preaching commission is proved up to 40 years, out of which full 10 years have already passed”.
It is evident from mirza’s above statement that he means to say that Hazrat Masih (as) will live for forty years on his second coming to the world. Claiming Messiahship in 1891, mirza died on May 26, 1908; living 171/2 years as a self-proclaimed Masih in the world. If we also include that period when he claimed only to be a Mujaddid and not Masih, even then till June 1892 (the year of publication of Nishan-e-Aasmani) the period of ‘full ten years’ will be further added. In other words his claim of Messiahship started in 1882 and by 1908 his living period would be 26 years. Hence even then mirza did not fulfil the Prophetic saying (viz. Masih will stay in the world for forty years) and his claim of Messiahship did not prove true. Consequently, I ask, did mirza complete his 40 years of preaching since ‘that humble had been commissioned’? No, never. Yet another proof of his lies!
Lies mounting upon
A veritable mountain of lies.
Ironically someone told me: mirza was going to die in 1922 but look at Hazrat Izraeel (as) who started his count-down in 1908; good that he was packed up earlier and was released from his melancholic hyster-mania. Had not the world seen of him, heard of him, enough!
3. Details relating to Hazrat Masih’s personality
(a) Marriage and Children
According to Mishkat Shareef (p.480) Hazrat Masih (as) on coming down to the world will marry and have children.
Mirza admits this in juxtaposition and support of his own ‘celestial’ marriage. He writes:
“Allah’s Prophet (Sallallaho Alaihe Wassallam) has already foretold in support of this prediction (i.e. Muhammadi Begum’s marriage with mirza ‘in the sky’) that the promised Masih will take a wife and will be father of children. Now, to mention wife and children is obviously a normal occurrence because everyone marries and has children; so no excellence in that. But (a particular mention of) taking a wife and having children means some special wife and some special children. In this respect a prediction of this humble self is already there. In other words, it appears the Prophet (Sallallaho Alaihe Wassallam) is giving a reply to the doubts of the black-hearted unbelievers that these events will certainly occur!”
(Appendix Anjam-e-Atham, p.53)
A person who does not believe in the fulfilment of Prophetic utterances is no doubt black-hearted.
Mirza had written this in 1896. By that time, he had married twice and he had children from both wives. But no excellence in that, he said. The marriage to be excellent had to be in the nature of a token from Allah. But neither the “special marriage” nor “special children” were in mirza’s luck. Thus, he failed to match the criteria of identification which the Prophet (Sallallaho Alaihe Wassallam) has established for Hazrat Masih (as). This is another point which proves that mirza was not Masih.
(b) Haj and Pilgrimage
In course of fixing an account of the events from the life of Hazrat Masih (as) the Prophet of Allah (Sallallaho Alaihe Wassallam) spoke very specifically about the performance of Haj and Umra by hazrat Masih (as) and also about conveying his salaam to the holy Prophet (Sallallaho Alaihe Wassallam) when he (i.e. Masih (as) would present himself at the holy mausoleum in Madina Munawwara. (Mustadrak Hakim, Vol. 2, p. 595). mirza himself had acknowledged that it would happen. Consequently according to his Ayyam-e-Sulh p.168, once, when he was asked as to why he did not perform Haj by then, he replied:
“Our Haj will be at the time when Dajjal having forsaken his infidelity and deception would perform Baitullah’s tawaf, because, according to Hadith Sahih, same would be the time for the promised Masih to perform Haj”.
At another place, it is reported in mirza’s Malfoozat (Record of conversations):
“Letter of Maulvi Muhammad Husain Batalvi was read out in the esteemed presence of hazrat promised Masih, wherein objection was raised as to why he did not perform Haj. In reply, the promised Masih said: ‘My first assignment is killing of swine and breaking of the ‘cross’. I am still killing swine; many swine have died but many hard cores are still left. Let there be some respite and disengagement!”
(Malfoozat-e-Ahmediya, Part Five, p.264, compiled by Manzoor Ilahi).
The world knows that mirza was denied the good fortune of performing Haj and pilgrimage to the Prophet’s mausoleum till at last he breathed away into thin air. This proves again that he was not the promised Masih and did not match the token set up by the Prophet (Sallallaho Alaihe Wassallam).
(c) Death and Burial
Allah’s Prophet (Sallallaho Alaihe Wassallam) said that Hazrat Masih (as) would die after completing the duration he was destined to pass in the world and that Muslims would offer his funeral prayers and bury him in the holy mausoleum by the side of Hazrat Abu Bakr and Hazrat Umar (rzu) (Mishkat, p.480)
Admitting this statement of the Prophet (Sallallaho Alaihe Wassallam) mirza writes in his book, Kashti-e-Nooh, p.l5:
“The Prophet (Sallallaho Alaihe Wassallam) says ‘the promised Masih will be buried in my grave,’ that is to say he (Masih) is the same as I!”
At another place, in Izala-e-Auham he writes on page 470:
“Possibly there may come some resembler of Masih who may be buried near the mausoleum of the Prophet” (Sallallaho Alaihe Wassallam).
The whole world knows that mirza never had a chance to breathe in the air of Madinah. He lies buried in qadiyan. Hence he could not be deemed the promised Masih.
4. Hazrat Masih (as) will descend from the sky
That Masih (as) for whom the Prophet (Sallallaho Alaihe Wassallam) desired his salaam to be conveyed will be the one who would descend from the sky. In his book, Izala-e-Auham on page 81, mirza himself confirmed this indication given by the Prophet (Sallallaho Alaihe Wassallam) as follows:
“For instance this word is there in the Hadith of Sahih Muslim that when Hazrat Masih will descend from the sky, his dress will be of yellow colour!”
Now, who does not know that mirza came out from the womb of Chiragh Bibi? Is a woman’s womb called ‘sky’. Can you still say mirza was Masih?
5. Details of deeds of Hazrat Masih
The holy Prophet (Sallallaho Alaihe Wassallam) has given the details of the deeds which shall be accomplished by Hazrat Masih; for instance, Hadith of Sahih Bukhari says:
“I swear by Him in Whose hands is my life that soon there will descend among you Hazrat Isa Ibn-e-Mariam as a just authority; so (he) will break the ‘cross’, kill swine and discontinue war!” (Sahih Bukhari, Vol. 1, p. 490)
This noble Hadith mentions several deeds which Hazrat Masih will perform after his descent. Before going into those, let’s evaluate the significance of the Oath which was taken here by the Prophet (Sallallaho Alaihe Wassallam). First of all you should understand what does an oath signify. An oath, as ever, is pronounced on those occasions where, either the assertion appears doubtful, or some element of astonishment exists or where the assertion admits no incongruity. Absolute credence in the veracity of a statement is the sine qua non of an oath. mirza agrees to this and in his book Hamamat ul Bushra on page 14 he says:
“An oath vouches that the news must go along with its prima-facie; there is no interpretation in it and no exclusion”.
(a) Who is Masih (as)
The Prophet (Sallallaho Alaihe Wassallam) testified that:
(i) Name of the coming Masih shall be Isa: But mirza’s name was not Isa. It was ghulam ahmed. Imagine the difference between Isa and ghulam ahmed? Any connection between the two?
(ii) Name of Masih’s mother is Mariam Siddiqa: But the name of mirza’s mother was Chiragh Bibi.
(iii) Masih (as) shall descend from the sky: But mirza did not descend from the sky.
The Prophet (Sallallaho Alaihe Wassallam) pronounced the above three signs on oath and mirza admitted them all. To quote him again: “An oath vouches that the news goes along with its prima-facie; there is no interpretation in it and no exclusion.” Therefore, judge for yourself the act of that man who takes the liberty of circumventing the oath of the Prophet (Sallallaho Alaihe Wassallam). Would he be considered to have faith in the Prophet? (Sallallaho Alaihe Wassallam) Certainly not!
(b) Masih (as) will be a Just Authority
Prophet (Sallallaho Alaihe Wassallam) also pronounced on oath that Masih (as)
will come in the capacity of a ruler who is just and will perform Khilafat
duties and would be a sovereign over the entire Millat-e-Islamia. On the other
hand, we find mirza begged to remain the most obedient servant of Queen
so, mirza was never a ruler of any description anywhere; far from it. He did
not exercise any authority over any
“It is possible, rather very much possible, that such Masih will come in some era on whom the apparent words of the Ahadith of the Prophet (Sallallaho Alaihe Wassallam) will fall true because this humble self has not come down with sovereignty or rulership of the world”.
Thus mirza cannot be deemed Masih because he does not befit the holy Prophet’s (Sallallaho Alaihe Wassallam) edict.
(c) Breaking of the Cross
Hazrat Isa’s most important mission, after descending on the earth will be the reformation of his people who shall consist of his antagonists, the Jews and his protagonists, the Christians.
In those days, Dajjal the Jew, will be the leader of all the Jews. Hazrat Isa (as) will first put him to death and then make an end of the Jews. Then he will turn towards the Christians and reform them of their misguided notions that stemmed from the beliefs of Trinity, Crucification and Expiation. His descending in day-light before all eyes, the very spectacle, will dispel the deification dogma. A human among humans, his physique will refute dogmas of Trinity, Cross and Atonement. With a living Masih (as) around and spurious beliefs negated, the Christians shall pray to Allah for forgiveness. Naturally, they will take to Islam and will throw away all ‘crosses’, none remaining.
As you know, most evils in society take root from pork-eating. Therefore, Hazrat Isa (as) will destroy swine. In this way he will uproot all noxious practices at religious and social levels. Christians, converted to Islam, will break ‘crosses’ themselves and kill pigs and swine.
Could mirza accomplish all this? How could he go against his swine-eater masters. Does a vassal go against his lord?
During the period he alleged he was busy in breaking the cross, he got an excuse that he had no time to go to Haj. The fact remains that Christianity made great progress during that very period. In his book, Izala-e-Auham he writes on page 491:
slightly over half of the thirteenth century had passed, then this group of
Dajjals appeared. They continued to make substantial progress till the end of
this century. Then, as Padre Baker Sahib said, Christians reached up to the
pitch of five lakh in
It was the ill-omened step of mirza that
caused so many Christian bloomings to sprout up in
you know, there are 137 Christian missions operating in
the (Christian) Salvation Army
there are 308 European and 2,866 Indian priests. Under them there are 507
Primary Schools in which 18,675 students study. Under different departments of
this ‘Army’, 3,200 men are nourished. As a result of these efforts and
sacrifices it is said that 224 persons of different religions are being daily
converted to Christianity in
81,760 persons becoming Christians every year in 1941 in
Let your conscience be the judge and remove the impure from the pure if you can. Take it for sure that there will come down the real Masih, and not this scarecrow! That Masih, who will wipe off the relics of Christianity from the face of the earth, will be different from this impostor.
Nothing what mirza says stands but on crutches of circumvention. When foretellings of the Prophet (Sallallaho Alaihe Wassallam) are straightforward why believe in the crookedness of a crook.
mirza had a brain-wave. He came out with an idea and said that Masih (as) was
lying buried in a grave in Mohalla Khan Yar in
“In fact our purpose in life is twofold; one, to kill a prophet and second, to kill Satan”. (Malfoozat, Vol. 10, p. 60).
But those upon whom Allah has bestowed knowledge are aware that killing of the god of Christians was an “accomplishment” of sir syed ahmed! At a time when mirza ghulam ahmed firmly believed in a living Masih and used to prove that Masih was alive by quoting the Ayat of the holy Quran and his own ‘revelation’ as on pages 498-99 and 505 in his braheen-e-ahmediya, Sir Syed Ahmad at that very time had vainly and presumptively proved the death of Hazrat Isa (as) (God forbid) on the holy Quran’s testimony. Result was that some persons were misguided by the notions of Sir Syed Ahmad, and men like Hakeem Noor-ud-Din, Maulvi Abdul Kareem and Maulvi Muhammad Ahsan Amrohvi and some modern educated people fell a prey to the belief of Masih’s death. Therefore, if proving Masih’s death means breaking the ‘Cross’ then, it is Sir Syed who deserves the title of the ‘promised Masih’ and ‘breaker of Cross’, and not mirza!
Anyhow, it should also be noted that ‘Cross’ worship and expiation dogmas came to be accepted by the Christians when the ‘Cross’ was regarded sanctimonious because ‘hanging’ of Hazrat Isa (as) and his dying on it is the belief of Christians. mirza differs from this belief only over one detail, that is, he says that Isa (as) did not die as a result of hanging but feigned dead-like and contrived to escape into Kashmir where he died a natural death later. In short, mirza agrees with the Christians that Isa (as) is dead; so wherefore his claim of breaking the ‘Cross’ stands?
Islam calls the whole episode a story made up by the Jews in which the Christians acquiesced and I say mirza, in his folly followed suit trailing behind them. Therefore, in Islam, Isa (as) was never crucified. Hence the crucifix has no sanctity. This truth will unravel at the time of Hazrat Isa’s descent. His sublime presence shall put all spurious beliefs to naught.
(d) Wars will cease and Jazia will end
The above-quoted Hadith of Sahih Bukhari has mentioned the words () as one great deed of Hazrat Masih (as) i.e., he will put a stop to strife and war. Other Traditions in which these words are used, purport to signify that levy of Jazia will cease. mirza mounts up his falsehood on the basis of this Prophetic saying and asks Islamic Ummah to become obedient to the British Government. For this reason he declared that holy wars waged against the British were ‘Haram’ (forbidden.). On the other hand, this Tradition merely meant to say that after the arrival of Hazrat Masih (as) all sorts of dissensions against one another shall disappear, whether religious or secular. There will be neither enmity nor resentment, no squabbles, no fights. In this situation, Jazia will automatically cease because religious feuds would have disappeared.
historically we find that during the post-death era of mirza, his ill-omened
being heralded poppies of two World Wars with sporadic outbreaks of hostilities
here and there, while the third world war is looming large on humanity’s head
like the sword of Damocles. Far from putting an end to Jazia, mirza’s qadiyani
Jamaat today is eating bread and butter of non-Muslims in
Be just and tell me if the tokens the Prophet (Sallallaho Alaihe Wassallam) swore by are discernible anywhere in mirza’s personality? Certainly not. Ponder, is mirza a Masih or a laughing stock?
(e) Killing of Dajjal
the Chief of Jews, Dajjal will first of all show himself off as a very holy
man, then he will claim prophethood, next he will claim to be God (Fath-ul-Bari,
Vol. 13, p. 79). He will be one-eyed and () (kafir)
or () will be inscribed on his forehead which every
literate and illiterate Muslim shall be able to decipher. He will make his own
paradise and hell. (Mishkat. p. 473). Seventy thousand Jews of Esfahan
will accompany him. (Mishkat, p. 475). He will appear forth from the
Allah will give Dajjal leeway and capacity to rouse people to rebellion. Before his appearance there will be three exacting years, in the first of which, rainfall will be less by one-third of the normal, leading to a shortfall of one-third in grain production; rains in the second year will be less by two-third, resulting in a shortfall of grain by two-third, till in the third year there will be no growth as not one drop of rain will fall. Beasts and cattle will die on account of severe famine and drought. On the other hand, rain will fall on lands of those persons who would have reposed their faith in Dajjal. Therefore, their lands shall have vegetation and cattle shall return from pastures with filled bellies; those having no faith in him will be indigent and their cattle destroyed.
(Mishkat, pp. 473-474)
When Dajjal shall go over desolate places, he will order the land to throw its treasures out; consequently treasures will emerge and accompany him. (Mishkat, p.473). He will tell a bedouin, “If I bring your dead camels to life will you have faith in me?” He will reply, “Certainly!” Then, Satans, appearing as camels, shall come before him. He will think that his camels have really become alive. Thus, bound by spells, he will believe in Dajjal as God. Similarly he will tell a person, “If I bring your father and brother back to life, will you believe in me?” He will say, “Certainly”! Then he will go to the graves of his father and brother and there, Satans looking like his father and brother, will come out to him and say, “Yes, this is God and do believe in him.” (Mishkat, p. 477). In this way, Dajjal, will mislead humanity and only Allah’s chosen people will not be influenced by his deceit and trickery. Therefore the Prophet (Sallallaho Alaihe Wassallam) was pleased to say in his will, that on hearing Dajjal’s appearance people should run away from him. (Mishkat, p. 475).
last Dajjal will turn towards Madinah Tayyibah but will not be able to enter
Madinah and will encamp behind Uhad mountain. Then, angels of Allah, the
Exalted, will turn his direction towards the country of
the time when Dajjal will be heading towards
Imam Tirmizi according to a narration of Hazrat Mujammi ibn Jariyah (rzu) relates this holy saying of the holy Prophet (Sallallaho Alaihe Wassallam) that ‘Hazrat Isa (as) will kill Dajjal at ‘Bab-e-Lud’, and says:
“Ahadith in this context have been related from Imran bin Husain, Naafey bin Aqbah, Abi Barzah, Huzaifah bin Usaid, Abi Hurairah, Kaisan, Usman bin Abil Aas, Jabir, Abi Umamah, Ibne Masood, Abdullah bin Umar, Samurah bin Jundab, Nawwas bin Samaan, Umar bin Auf, Huzaifah bin Yaman (that is from fifteen Companions or Sahabah) (rzu) This Hadith is Sahih.” (Tirmizi, Vol. 2, p. 48).
Above is the description of that creature called Dajjal whose killing has been foretold by the Prophet (Sallallaho Alaihe Wassallam) and whose liquidator has to be conveyed the salaam of the holy Prophet (Sallallaho Alaihe Wassallam) Can any one professing faith in the Prophet (Sallallaho Alaihe Wassallam) declare that a Dajjal of such description has ever emerged in the world and has any Isa bin Mariam killed him? Only a person without faith in the holy Prophet (Sallallaho Alaihe Wassallam) can waver.
Now judge what mirza does. Because he had counterfeited Masih, the need arose to make one artificial Dajjal also. This he did by means of a master idea. He announced that the group of Christian Padrees was Dajjal. qadiyanis believe in this but they know that Padrees have been here for centuries. They were existing even before the Prophet (Sallallaho Alaihe Wassallam). If they were Dajjal, wouldn’t have the Prophet (Sallallaho Alaihe Wassallam) said so and do these Padrees match the same description as the Prophet (Sallallaho Alaihe Wassallam) had foretold about Dajjal. And if by any stretch of imagination, Padrees are Dajjals, did mirza’s so-called messiahship kill them? Do they not exist today? No logic is needed to disprove this. If mirza’s Dajjal has been killed wherefrom is this multitude of Padrees and wherefore is Christianity making progress?
Conditions at the time of descent
of Hazrat Masih (as)
The Prophet (Sallallaho Alaihe Wassallam) gave a detailed account of the pattern of auspiciousness that would be prevailing in the times of Hazrat Isa (as) For the sake of brevity, I quote one Hadith and I have selected this one because it has been translated into Urdu by mirza mahmud ahmed qadiyani, son of mirza ghulam ahmed qadiyani, in his book Haqiqat-un-Nubuwwah on page 192. This is what mirza mahmud ahmed has written. He quotes the Prophet (Sallallaho Alaihe Wassallam)
“Prophets are like brothers-in-affinity. Their mothers are different but Deen is one. And I have the closest connection with Isa bin Mariam because in between him and myself there is no prophet and he is about to descend. Therefore, when you see him, recognise him, that he is even-stature with red-white mixed complexion and wearing yellow clothes. Water shall be dropping from his head, although water will not have been shed over the head. He will break the ‘cross,’ kill the swine and will forsake ‘Jazia’ and will invite people to Islam. Lions and camels, leopards and cows, wolves and goats will graze about together. Children will play with snakes and they will not harm them. Isa bin Mariam will remain on earth for forty years and then he will die and Musalmans will offer his funeral prayer.”
I ask you to read once again this Hadith which your own Chief of Jamaat, mirza mahmud wrote in his book. You see for yourself if this was the condition that prevailed when mirza ghulam ahmed was alive? While the Prophet (Sallallaho Alaihe Wassallam) is saying that wars will cease, yet reports from news-media indicate that only 24 days in this century have been such that human blood has not flowed on our terra firma. During Hazrat Isa’s (as) time there will be such peace and tranquility that not to speak of relations between two men, even the beasts will not harbour enmity against one another. But here among mirza’s own Jamaat flames of enmity and hatred are blazing; what to say about others!
Disinclination towards world and recourse to Allah
At the end of the Hadith of Sahih Bukhari mentioned above, the Prophet (Sallallaho Alaihe Wassallam) also said that riches shall start flowing like torrents in the times of Hazrat Isa (as) to the extent that nobody will come forward to take them and one prostration in prayer () will be deemed better than all the world can offer. (Sahih Bukhari, Vol. 1, p. 49). Reason will be that men will be disinclined towards accepting worldly riches, as Hazrat Isa’s descent will assure them that the Day of Reckoning is close at heels. They will abstain from sins. Secondly, Hazrat Isa’s guidance, transmuting vices into virtues, will tend to brighten human values of godliness. Thus, with the world, having disgorged its fortunes, and indigence having disappeared, nobody will obviously be left to accept alms and () (obligatory charity payable on wealth, mistakenly known as ‘poor-due’). In this situation salat, as a means of attaining Divine proximity, will take precedence over worship through alms and charitable deeds. Therefore, one prostration on ground will carry more value than all that the world would offer. Contrarily, the scenario at mirza’s time was one of greed, avidity and voluptuousness, so much so that vices, in all hues and colours, worsened in mirza’s own Jamaat in those days and he lived through to see this horrendous spectacle.
MY LAST WORD
Because, you, my brother-in-humanity, have asked me to avoid incurring Allah’s displeasure and that of the Prophet (Sallallaho Alaihe Wassallam) and have warned me, I reciprocate the same tidings to you and through you to your Organisation and finally to your mirza nasir ahmed (the qadiyani Khalifa at the time of this writing) coolly to think over mirza ghulam ahmed’s stance, in the light of the pronouncements of Allah and His Prophet (Sallallaho Alaihe Wassallam) If you find that your mirza ghulam ahmed truly fits into being called Masih, go ahead and accept him so, but if not, then reject him. Believing in him means disbelieving in Allah and His Prophet (Sallallaho Alaihe Wassallam). Don’t do injustice to your self. Now that fifteenth century is soon to come in, we should wait for the arrival of a new revivalist () by rejecting the claim of mirza saheb and confirming the pronouncements of our holy Prophet (Sallallaho Alaihe Wassallam) because mirza ghulam ahmed himself said:
“If I manage to accomplish in support of Islam that work which the promised Masih and the promised Mahdi should do, then I am truthful and if nothing is done and I am dead then let all be witness that I am a liar.”
“Therefore, if I fail in the manifestation of this essential intent notwithstanding millions of tokens coming forth from me, then I am a liar!”
(Mirza’s letter to Qazi Nazar Husain in Badr of19th July, 1906).
The last word of the last line of your grand-sire in this exquisite piece of his writing is my answer to your letter. I couldn’t have written more specifically. Here it is right from the horse’s mouth.
Remember, mirza’s long windy predictions, his revelation claims ‘from the blue’, his poetic loquacity are hallucinations that descended upon this sick man, alas! Beware, your press conferences, media coverages and periodical meets, etc., are trash. These are rotten commodities that would not sell in the market of truth and rightfulness. Don’t believe in mirza’s circumlocutions, concoctions, circumventions and ‘millions of tokens’ which prove mirza a straight liar. Call him a liar as he himself wants you to call him in his above quotation. He does not meet the standard set forth by the holy Prophet (Sallallaho Alaihe Wassallam) so he is not the ‘Promised Masih’, nor is it justified to call him ‘Promised Masih’.
In the end, I invite you to believe in the holy saying of the Prophet (Sallallaho Alaihe Wassallam) and leave mirza’s brain-formations. Messiahship is his exclusive brain-child. Allah shall grant you great recompense on this act of yours but if you turn away, remember, no sooner the pangs of death start than the truth will unravel on you.
With all my prayers.

 Syedna Isa (as) had not married in his first life and had no wife or children. Therefore the holy Prophet said that when he would come the second time then he will marry as well as have children.
 Mirza himself goes out hunting swine but ridicules what has been said in Hadith that hazrat Masih (Peace be upon him) would kill the swine. To wit: in Seerat ul Mahdi, mirza’s son bashir ahmed relates as follows :
“Mian Imam Din Sikhwani told me that hazrat promised Masih used to say that his opponents said that after Masih’s arrival, people would go to his house to meet him but his household would inform them that Masih had gone into the woods to kill swine. Hearing that they would be surprised and would say what sort of Masih was that who went out for pig hunting instead of affording guidance to the people. He (Mirza) would then say that arrival of such a man could only please the cobblers, sweepers and vagrants who normally did that work; otherwise, how Muslims could be happy over that, asked Mirza. And then he would laugh heartily till his eyes started watering.” (Seerat ul Mahdi by mirza bashir ahmed, Vol.3, p.291-292).
 Christian Missionaries have formed a Salvation Army which apparently means an ‘army’ that will facilitate ‘salvation’ of mankind. In common parlance it is known as Mukti Fauj. Mukti means salvation. The members of this ‘Army’ wear standard uniforms. Muslim countries who are unmindful of the ramifications of this ‘Army’, have given it liberty to spread ‘irtidad’ (converting Muslims to Christianity, i.e., heathenism).
 This letter was written twelve years ago around the middle of the year 1399 A.H. Now thirteen years of even fifteenth century have elapsed. By virtue of the fourteenth century hawing come to a close the claim of mirza ghulam ahmed has proved totally false.
