Mirza Ghulam Ahmad in the Mirror of his own Writings
Truth and untruth are two on-going serials of the world. But Allah, Exalted
in Munificence, has bestowed some distinctive factors enabling a man of ordinary
understanding and common sense to identify one from the other. Praise to
Mirza Ghulam Ahmad of Qadian (India) made a number of claims for himself,
from being a 'Revivalist' to being a 'Prophet'. The falsehood or otherwise
of a claim is easily identifiable through several tokens of cognizance which
Allah, the Exalted, has laid down.
But the easiest pointer, readily available, is Mirza's own writings about
which he himself said that his writings were a touchstone to check upon
the veracity of his claims. I, therefore, invite readers to go through
his written statements and judge for themselves.
Here are presented 22 excerpts from Mirza's writings. You would see in these
that Mirza challenges the world to prove him a liar. He is bold about it.
I expect my brethren to test his metal in a cool unprejudiced manner.
I pray to Allah, the Exalted, to grant us His Favor in identifying the truth
as such, and untruth as such.
Excerpt No. 1: Mirza Ghulam Ahmad Qadiani
wrote in a letter to Qazi Nazar Hussain, Editor, Newspaper 'Qul-Qul',
"Those persons who come from Allah's side.... they do achieve essential intent
of their 'sending down and do not die till the purpose of their commission
is not manifested.
My mission for which I am standing in this field is this very one that I
(a) topple the pillar of worship of Isa, (b) spread monotheistic doctrine
in place of Trinity, (c) and display dignity and glory o the holy
Prophet(SAW) before the world.
Therefore, I am a liar if I fail in the manifestation of this essential intent,
notwithstanding millions of tokens coming forth from me.
Why is the world, therefore, inimical to me? And why does it not see my end?
If I manage to succeed in doing in support of Islam that work which
the promised Masih or the promised Mahdi should have done, then I am truthful.
And if nothing happens by the time I am dead then let everybody be witness
that I am a liar. (Newspaper, 'Badr', Qadian, Vol. 2, P. 4, July
Comments: How far did Mirza succeed in his mission is recounted in
the official newspaper of Qadianis, Al Fazl, in its issue dated June
19,1941, page 5. It says:
"Do you know, there are 137 Christian Missions operating in India, i.e.,
Head Missions. Number of their branches is many more. More than 1800 'Priests'
are working in the head missions. There are 403 hospitals in which 500 doctors
are working There are 43 printing presses and about 100 newspapers are printed
in different languages. They are running 51 Colleges, 617 High Schools and
61 Training Colleges where 60,000 students study. In the (Christian) 'Salvation
Army' there are 308 European and 2886 Indian priests. Under it (the 'Army')
there are 507 Primary Schools in which 18,675 students study Eighteen colonies
and 11 Dailies are their own. Under different departments of this Army 3,290
men are nourished. Result of these efforts and sacrifices is that it is said
that 224 persons of different religions are being daily converted to
Christianity. Against this, what are the Musalmans doing? Perhaps they do
not consider this work worth their attention. Ahmadi Jamaat should think
what is the position of their own efforts against such widespread net of
Christian missionaries. We have only two dozen preachers in the whole of
India and the difficult conditions under which they are working, we know
This is the evidence produced by a Qadiani newspaper, 33 years after Mirza's
death! It shows that Mirza s claim did no damage to Christianity Monotheism
did not flourish at the cost of Trinity. His effort to stop the spread of
Thus, Mirza's statement: "Therefore I am a liar if I fail in the manifestation
of this essential intent..... And if nothing happens by the time I am dead
then let everybody be witness that I am a liar" is a lie self-proved.
Excerpt No. 2: Mirza writes in Zamima
Anjam-e-Atham: (P. 30-35).
"If within seven years, a distinct effect of my efforts does not appear by
Allah's support in service of Islam and, since death of false religions is
essential on the hands of Masih, if this death of false religions does not
come by through me, i.e., if Allah, the Exalted, does not reveal those tokens
through my hands which shall enhance Islam's success, as a result of which
Islam starts to enter from all sides annihilating the void Christian Divinity
and the world catching on a different hue, then, I swear by Allah that I
shall consider myself a liar".
Comments: Mirza wrote the above in January, 1897, or thereabouts.
In other words, his promised seven years' limit closed in 1903. By that year,
Mirza had to fulfill his promise to substantiate his truthfulness, failing
which he had sworn himself to be a liar. Now, readers know that nothing of
that sort happened and his promise did not materialize according to the
time-scale which he himself had stipulated. Thus, Mirza is a self-proclaimed
Excerpt No. 3: It so happened during
Ramadhan-ul-Mubarak of the year 1311 Hijri that lunar eclipse occurred on
the 13th and solar eclipse on the 28th. Both eclipses chanced to fall during
the same month. Mirza announced this phenomena as a proof of his 'Mahdviat'
(being Mahdi). He declared that this supernatural abnormality was a special
sign for his sake only and which had never occurred before during lifetime
of any other claimant to Mahdviat, Masihiat or Prophethood.
In Magazine, 'Anwar-ul-Islam' (P. 47), Mirza wrote:
"Since the times that this world was created never did lunar and solar eclipses
get together during the times of any claimant of Prophethood/ Messengership/
Muhaddathiat. If somebody says they have conjoined then burden of proof lies
It never happened and certainly never happened from the start of the world
till today that lunar and solar eclipses conjoined in this manner in
Ramadhan and that some claimant to Prophethood, Messengership or
Muhaddathiat was present at that time." (P. 40)
Comments: Mirza's lack of knowledge deserves pity. From the years
Hijri 18 to Hijri 1312, lunar and solar eclipses have conjoined sixty times
in Ramadhan alone; during these thirteen centuries there have been not one
but dozens of claimants of Prophethood and Mahdviat. But Allah, the Exalted,
willed that Mirza be proved a liar from his own ignorance.
Therefore Allah, the Exalted, made him write out this challenge:
"If these cruel Maulvis can produce an evidence of this type of conjunction
of eclipses in the times of any claimant, they should come out with it.
Undoubtedly, I shall go down as a liar, by this". (Appendix,
Anjam-e-Atham, P. 48).
Here I produce evidence, not one but four.
In Hijri 117, lunar and solar eclipses conjoined in month of Ramadhan
in the times of a claimant, by name 'Treef' who was living in Aljazair;
Again, Hijri 127 saw a conjunction of the eclipses and at that time a person
called Saleh, son of Treef, was claimant of prophethood;
A conjunction again occurred in 1267 Hijri in Iran where Mirza Ali Muhammad
Bab was blowing his trumpet of Mahdviat for seven years;
The Hijri of 1311 was again the year of conjunction when Mahdi Sudani was
spreading his cult of Mahdviat in Sudan.
More historical proofs are available in respect of such phenomenal conjunctions
in the lifetime of many claimants of prophethood and Mahdviat. For details
refer to the following books:
'Doosri Shadadat-e-Aasmani' by Maulana Abu Ahmad
'Aimma-e-Talbis & Raees-e-Qadian' by Maulana Abul Qasim Dilawari
But the above four evidences are sufficient to prove Mirzas lies.
Excerpt No. 4: Mirza wrote in
'Izala-e-Auham': (P. 190, 1st edition; P. 79, 5th edition)
"O Brethren of Deen and theologians of inviolable Law! Listen, you
people to my submissions intently; that the claim of the promised similar,
which this humble has made, has been taken as the promised Masih by witless
folks.... I have not certainly made this claim that I am Masih, son of Mariam.
The person putting this blame on me is a downright slanderer and a liar".
Comments: The above clarifies the position. Mirza admits he was
not the promised Masih and he confirms that those who consider
him so, are 'witless folks, downright slanderers and liars'.
Except No. 5: Mirza wrote in Tuhfatun
Nadwah: (P. 5)
If I don't have knowledge of hidden things, then I am a liar;
If death of Ibn-e-Mariam is not testified by Quran, then I am a liar;
If Hadith-Mairaj did not make Ibn-e-Mariam sit among the dead
souls, then I am a liar;
If Quran did not declare in Sura 'Noor' that caliphs of this
Ummat shall be from this very Ummat, then I am a liar;
If Quran did not give me the name of Ibn-e-Mariam, then I am a liar".
Comments: Each and every claim above is wrong. Lies stand proved.
Excerpt No. 6: Mirza wrote in Tuhfatun
Nadwah (P. 4):
"Allah, the Exalted, in His Holy Book says:.. ....That is, if this (person)
will be telling lies he will be destroyed while you will be seeing him. His
falsehood shall kill him. But if he is truthful then some of you shall become
a target of his predictions and will depart from this mortal place while
he will be seeing them. Now, test me on this basis which is in God's words
and evaluate my claims".
Comments: We are ready to evaluate Mirza's claim on the basis set
by him and draw these conclusions:
Mirza engaged himself against Maulana Abdul Haq Ghaznavi in an imprecation
of Mubahala. Right in front of his adversary's eyes Mirza met his
doom. His falsehood killed him.
During a tête-à-tête with another opponent, by name Maulana
Sanaullah, Mirza indulging in curses, implored Allah to take away first the
life of whosoever was a liar. And lo! Mirza died first while Maulana Sanaullah
lived on to see him dead
Mirza's rival-in-love was Sultan Muhammad Sahib. In burning jealously Mirza
died of Cholera while Sultan Muhammad lived on after Mirza's death.
Another opponent was Doctor Abdul Hakeem Khan. Mirza told him of the drawn
sword of the Angel of Death hovering over his head and cursed him:
"O my Provider! decide between the Liar and the Truthful!" 'Liar and the
And lo! Mirza died before Doctor Sahib's very eyes as a veritable liar!
The evidences of these four eye-witnesses amply testify Mirza's falsehood
in accordance with the standards which he himself set forth.
Excerpt No. 7: On July 10, 1888,
Mirza came forward to notify his "revelational foretelling", as follows:
"That Absolute Omnipotent has told me:
Start negotiations for the elder daughter (Muhammadi Begum) of that person
(Ahmad Baig). In case of declination from Nikah, the end of that girl will
be extremely bad and if she will be married to another person he, within
two and a half years from and similarly father of that daughter within three
years, will die."
"Then in those days, attention was applied again and again for further
clarification and details. It came to be known that God Almighty determined
that He will bring the elder daughter (Muhammadi Begum) of that person (i.e.
Ahmad Baig) into Nikah of this humble self after removal of each hindrance".
"Be it clear to the evil-minded that in order to judge our truthfulness or
falsehood there can be no greater touchstone of test than our predictions".
(Majmua'i-e-Ishtharat Vol. I, pp. 157-159).
Comments: This touchstone, which Mirza settled for himself to ascertain
his truthfulness, has come very handy.
On April 7, 1892, Ahmad Baig married his daughter, Muhammadi Begum, to one
of his relatives namely Sultan Muhammad, resident of village Patti District
Now, in accordance with Mirza's divine revelation:
Muhammadi Begum ought to have been widowed by Oct. 6, 1894, but Allah, the
Exalted, kept her safe from Mirza's evil eye and the couple lived happily
together for no less than 57 years (i.e. 16 years in the lifetime of
Mirza and 41 years after his death). From 1949 till 1966, Muhammadi Begum
lived as a widow. In this way, she escaped the clutches of Mirza's 'divine
revelation', 41 years earlier.
Sultan Muhammad should have died six months earlier than his father-in-law
but by Allah's grace he lived for 57 years after him.
Ahmad Baig should have died after the death of his son-in-law and ought to
have witnessed his daughter's widowhood and destitution but he departed earlier
from the world, leaving his daughter and son-in-law happy in their life.
Each and every hindrance for Nikah between Mirza and the lady was
destined to be removed by God, as per Mirza's 'repeated attentions to the
Absolute Omnipotent' for bringing her into Nikah of that 'humble self.
Yet sorry! The Absolute Omnipotent did not help Mirza one bit, although he
pursued the matter relentlessly. Poor Mirza failed miserably. The 'angel
of death' wielded 'sword' over Mirza and he expired on May 26, 1908. Alas!
he departed, burying pangs of love in his heart into his grave, coupled with
heart-burning of jilt.
According to Mirza's own words those who do not put his predictions on the
touchstone of test for falsehood are 'the evil-minded'.
Excerpt No. 8: On the occasion
of Nikah announcement of Muhammadi Begum, on July 10, 1888, Mirza
prefaced the following two-verse piece on top of his communication:
Allah's Divine Power will strangely show itself up;
When the end result of my predictions will be visible.
Distinction between truth and falsehood is to appear;
Someone will get honor and some disgrace.
(Majmua-e-Ishtiharat, Vol. 1, P. 153).
Comments: Result of predictions was seen on 26th May, 1908, in Mirza's
death. Allah's Divine Power showed itself up on that day. Despite his twenty
years' continuous efforts along with his 'revelation' hoaxes, Mirza was deprived
of Muhammadi Begum. In this way, truth and falsehood became distinct in the
wake of which the lady was honored and Mirza disgraced. Who was a liar?
Excerpt No. 9: Mirza made several
predictions in the case of Muhammadi Begum. Her parents, ignoring all these
predictions, settled her Nikah elsewhere. Mirza was consumed with
lover's cast-off jealousy. Not controlling himself, he blurted forth a letter
to her paternal uncle, Mirza Ali Sher Baig, who was Mirza's brother-in-law
as well. He wrote:
"Now, I have heard that the girl's Nikah is going to be solemnized on the
2nd or the 3rd Eid ..... Participants in this Nikah are my great enemies.
Nay, they are great enemies of Islam. They want Christians to laugh at us
and Hindus to make merry but they don't care a bit for the Deen of
Allah and the Prophet".
"From their side, they are strongly determined to disgrace me and blacken
my face. They are about to strike me with a sword. Now, to save me is the
work of Allah, the Exalted. If I am His, He will surely save me. They want
me to be dishonored and to have my face blackened. God is Absolute. He may
blacken the face of whomsoever He likes but, now, they want to push me into
Comments: Ah! The restlessness of Mirza for Muhammadi Begum and the
coldness of her relatives. Woe betide! Enemies of Allah, enemies of the Prophet,
enemies of Deen and enemies of Mirza are cutting into Mirza's core
with the dagger of Nikah and turning him into a laughing stock of
insult for the world.
Alas Mirza! Aglow with lover's fire! Allah's help, none!
Mirza bemoans in writhing agony:
"If I am His, He will surely save me".
Yes if he were His; otherwise, No. A straw from Allah for Mirza!
Excerpt No. 10: When Sultan Muhammad,
Mirza's rival for Muhammadi Begum's hand, did not die within the period fixed
by Mirza, he extended the duration of Sultan's life:
"Well, if not in two and a half years, certainly in my lifetime he will die.
I declare that his living or not living is the test of my truthfulness or
He wrote in Persian:
"But I have not told you that this matter has come to a close at this state
and that the end result is what has appeared or that the fact of prediction
has finished at that. The real premise stands on its own. Nobody, by any
of his tricks, can evade it. This is fated from Great Allah as inevitable
destiny (i.e. the predicted death of Sultan Muhammad whereby Mirza could
consummate his longing for Sultan's wife) and shortly the time of its occurrence
will come. I swear by that Allah Who raised Hazrat Muhammad
Mustafa(SAW) for us to make him
His best creation that this prediction is true and will soon be visible.
I make it a proposition for testing my truthfulness or my falsehood. And
I have not said it on my own but that my Provider Himself has informed me
of it". (Anjam-e-Atham, P. 223)
Mirza declared Sultan Muhammad's imminent death as a proposition to test
his truthfulness or falsehood, i.e., if Sultan Muhammad died in Mirza's lifetime
then Mirza was true otherwise he was a liar.
What a pity that Mirza was a liar because he died in 1908 and Sultan Muhammad
died in 1949.
Excerpt No. 11: Mirza wrote in case of
"Remember, if the second part of this prediction does not come true (i.e.,
son-in-law of Ahmad Baig does not die in Mirza's lifetime) then I shall be
more wicked than every wicked man. O idiots! this is not a human's pretension.
This is no business of any depraved impostor. Consider this definitely to
be God's true promise, the same God Almighty Whose words never evade; the
same Glorious Provider Whose intentions nobody can stop!" (Appendix,
'Anjam-e-Atham' , P. 54)
Comments: Because Sultan Muhammad did not die in Mirza's lifetime,
the undermentioned conclusions are drawn:
Mirza admits himself to be 'more wicked than every wicked man';
His prediction was 'Pretension';
His prediction was 'Business of any depraved impostor';
If his claim was 'God's true promise' it could not possibly 'evade' because
who 'can stop intentions of the 'Glorious Provider?';
A person who does not understand this simple thing, Mirza gives him the title
Excerpt No. 12: Mirza wrote:
"I say again and again that quintessence of my prediction in case of the
son-in-law of Ahmad Baig shall be his inevitable destiny. Wait for it. If
I am a liar then this prediction will not be fulfilled and my death will
come and, if I am truthful, then God Almighty will certainly fulfill it'.
(Marginal note P. 31, Anjam-e-Atham)
Comments: How shameful! Ahmad Baig's son-in-law did not die during
Mirza's lifetime. Thus Mirza had said correctly: "If I am a liar then this
prediction will not be fulfilled, and my death will come."
Excerpt No. 13: Mirza, in support of
his 'heavenly' Nikah, had reasoned out from a Prophetic Hadith, (as
written by him in 'Anjam-e-Atham', P. 53 Annex):
"For corroboration of this prediction, the holy Prophet of
Allah(SAW) has also
previously predicted: the promised Masih will take a wife and have children.
Now it is obvious that this mention of marriage and children normally bears
no significance because every one generally marries and has children. There
is no excellence in it. But here marriage means special marriage as a token
and by children is meant special children for which the prediction of this
humble self is there. It looks as if the Prophet of
Allah(SAW) is answering here the
doubts of those black-hearted unbelievers that these sayings will certainly
Comments: Allah, the Exalted, kept Mirza deprived of that 'special
marriage' and from those 'special children', proving that Mirza's claim of
'Promised Masihship' was false and that the prophetic prediction did not
fit upon him. The holy saying was with regard to Hazrat Isa (peace be on
him) that he would marry and would have children on his second appearance
on earth Mirza has himself written about those persons who disbelieve his
appearance: "The Prophet of
Allah(SAW) is answering here the
doubts of those black-hearted unbelievers that these sayings will certainly
Excerpt No. 14: For fifteen days, Mirza
carried on arguments with a Christian Priest, named Abdulla Atham. Having
failed to give him a defeat he announced his revelation, on 5th June 1893,
that within fifteen months his adversary would be thrown into 'haviya'
(the hell), unless he returned to the truth. Mirza wrote in this case:
"I admit right this time that if this prediction goes false, that is, if
within fifteen months from this date, the party who is on falsehood in view
of Allah, does not fall into 'Haviya' as death punishment, then I
am prepared to undergo every type of punishment: disgrace me, blacken my
face, collar a rope around my neck or hang me on the gallows. I am ready
for all. I swear by the Greatness of Allah's Glory that He will certainly
do the same, will certainly do the same, will certainly do the same. Earth
and sky my deviate but not His Ordainment. If I am a liar, keep the gallows
ready for me and consider me the most accursed of all the accursed persons,
evil-doers and Satans". (Jung-e-Muqaddas, P. 189)
Comments: Mirza's prediction expired on 5th September, 1894 but Atham
neither renounced Christianity, nor accepted Islam, nor fell into
"Haviya" in death punishment. Nothing of the sort happened and everything
Mirza went to the extent of invoking charms over Atham, throwing over him
spells and witchcraft ('Seerat-ul-Mahdi', P. 188, Vol. 1), but nothing
On the last day, when this prediction was ending (i.e. 5th September),
he implored Allah, cried out and lamented: "Ya Allah! Atham may die, Atham
may die, Ya Allah! Atham may die" (Al-Fazl, dated 20th July 1940).
But Atham lived on. Magic, charms, witchcraft and spells did him no damage.
Allah rejected Mirza's implorations, lamentations and curses. Atham grew
all the more prosperous!
On the other hand, Mirza had proposed his own punishment as a liar: "Disgrace
me, blacken my face, collar a rope around my neck or hang me on the gallows...
keep the gallows ready for me, think of me as the most accursed of all the
accursed persons, evil-doers and Satans". Consequently, how did the opposing
party carry out this instruction of Mirza Saheb? It can be guessed by the
dirty announcements which were published on the expiration of the fixed time.
What his adversaries did? They heaped on Mirza such filthy abusive epithets
that it shall be indecent to print them here. But a couplet, which became
popular on public tongues may be reproduced here:
"Shameless perverse are also in this world; But you shame-proof, have surpassed
This was an echo to Mirza's own acknowledgment: "Most accursed of all the
accursed, evil doers and Satans." Really he was so, otherwise how Allah would
have failed him before a 'Kafir' Christian?
Excerpt No. 15: Mirza wrote in
Shahadat-ul-Quran: (P. 80).
"In addition to this, there are similar other magnificent tokens of this
humble self on the test list: There is my prediction in respect of Munshi
Abdulla Atham Sahib Amritsari, the term of which is fifteen months beginning
from 5th June, (1893). My other prediction is in respect of the son-in-law
of Mirza Ahmad Baig, resident of Patti, District Lahore, term of which has
eleven months more from today the 21st September, 1893. All these matters
which are totally beyond human power are sufficient to identify the true
from the liar".
Comments: This is exactly the modus-operandi in which a liar is
distinguishable from a truthful person, that is, if these predictions are
fulfilled as per duration of their terms then the teller of the predictions
will be considered truthful. As the predictions failed, therefore Mirza is
identified as a proven liar. No other argument is necessary to prove Mirza's
Excerpt No. 16: Mirza announced:
"In the end, I beseech You, O God! Almighty, All-Knowing, if these predictions
are not from You that Atham will be caught in fatal tortures and Ahmad Baig's
elder daughter coming ultimately into Nikah of this humble self then
destroy me with disgrace and disappointment. Efface me, perish me with insults,
make me permanent target of accursed imprecations, please my enemies, accept
their prayers if, in Your estimate, I am a driven outcast, accursed charlatan
and one-eyed anti-Christ impostor ('Dajjal') as my opponents have
understood me, and if that Benevolence of Yours is not with me which was
with...... " (so and so saints and prophets: here Mirza has named many saints
and prophets). (Ishtihar dated Oct. 27, 1894, reproduced from Majmu'a Ishtiharat
P. 116, Vol. 2).
Comments: Despite these heart-rending entreaties and self-accursements,
Allah did keep Mirza deprived of Nikah with Muhammadi Begum until
he breathed his last. From this it appears that Mirza, according to his own
statements, was 'a driven outcast, accursed charlatan and one-eyed anti-Christ
impostor ('Dajjal') as his opponents have understood him'.
Alas! As a result of this self-cursing he perished in disgrace and
disappointment, became a permanent target of accursed imprecations, his enemies
became happy and their prayers were accepted by Allah.
Excerpt No. 17: Mirza in his communication
to Maulana Sanaullah Amritsari wrote:
"In your paper, you build up this reputation for me that this person imputes
falsely, is a liar and is one-eyed anti-Christ impostor ('Dajjal').
I have borne a lot of tortures from you but endured them patiently........
if I am really a liar, an impostor and a charlatan, as you remember me in
your paper then I will perish in your lifetime". (Advertisement, Moulvi Sanaullah
Saheb se Aakhri Faislah, Majmua-e-lshtiharat, Vol. 3, P. 578)
Comments: Mirza died on 26th May, 1908, in the lifetime of Maulana.
Mirza's words are proven: "If I am really a liar, an impostor and a
charlatan, as you remember me in your paper then I will perish in your lifetime".
Mirza was a 'truthful' liar, therefore died earlier.
Excerpt No. 18: In the same advertisement
addressed to Maulana Sanaullah Amritsar, Mirza wrote:
"If that punishment which is not in the hands of a human being but only in
God's Hands, such as plague, cholera, etc., and similar fatal diseases and
if the same do not descend upon you in my lifetime then I am not god-sent".
Comments: Allah, the Exalted, kept Maulana safe from every affliction
in Mirza's lifetime and fulfilled this proposal of Mirza:. "Then I am not
Excerpt No. 19: Mirza implores Allah
in the above-quoted Aakhri Faislah.
"O God! If this claim of the 'promised Masih' is only a false imputation
from the 'self in me and in Your eyes I am a mischievous liar, then O my
dear Master! Humbly I implore in Your Audience to put me to death in Maulana
Sanaullah's life-time. Ameen".
Comments: This prayer of Mirza came to be accepted; Mirza died while
Maulana Sanaullah lived on. Proved: Mirza was a mischievous liar in the eyes
of Allah the Exalted. Further proved: Mirza's claim of being 'promised Masih'
was false imputation of his 'self and that Maulana Sanaullah was righteous.
Would that Mirza had implored Allah for his guidance instead of his death!
Perhaps that would also have been accepted.
Excerpt No. 20: Mirza further wrote:
"O my Omnipotent! O Who has sent me down! Holding the garment of Your Sanctity
and Mercy only, I beg in Your audience to honor us with a true decision between
Maulana Sanaullah and myself. And he who in Your eyes is really a mischievous
liar, lift him from the world in the very lifetime of whosoever is truthful.
O Master! do it this Way. Ameen".
Comments: This request of Mirza was also accepted. Maulana Sanaullah
was truthful hence Mirza, struck by cholera, was lifted from the world in
Maulana Sanaullah's lifetime. Mirza got from Allah what he asked from his
mouth. It proved that Mirza was a mischievous liar.
Excerpt No. 21: Mirza wrote in Zamima
Anjam-e-Atham, P. 20- 21:
"Shaikh Muhammad Hussain Batalvi and other notable opponents may hold a
Mubahala with me. After the Mubahala, even if one person could
save himself from my imprecations then I will admit I am a liar".
Under this arrangement, Maulana Abdul Haq Ghaznavi held a Mubahala
with Mirza. Result was that Mirza died in the lifetime of Maulana Sahib.
Thus, Mirza's covenant is corroborated: "I am a liar".
Excerpt No. 22: Mirza's writings show
that he was a patient of 'Hyster-malaise.' He said so in conversations also.
Doctors confirmed it. Others also said about it. Proofs are given below:
"You behold! Hazrat(SAW) had foretold
about my illness also which has come to pass likewise: He had said that when
Masih will descend from the sky he will be wearing two saffron-colored sheets
of cloth. Therefore, same way, I have two diseases, one in the upper part
of the body, viz., Hysteromania, and the other, excessive urination, in the
lower part". (Malfoozat-e-Mirza Ghulam Ahmad Qadiani, Vol. 8, P. 445);
"My condition is such that, despite my constant involvement in two diseases,
I remain preoccupied with work that I carry on very late having closed doors
of the house at night. Although the disease of Hyster-malaise increases as
a result, and my head feels more dizzy due to wakefulness, yet I don't care
and continue with my work". (Ibid. Vol. 2, P. 376);
"Hazrat Khalifat-ul-Masih-ul-Awwal said to hazrat promised Masih: "Your Honor!
Ghulam Nabi suffers from Melancholia." The honourable was pleased to reply:
"In a way, all the prophets suffered from Melancholia and I also suffer from
the same". (Seerat-ul-Mahdi, P. 304, Vol. 3);
"Doctor Mir Muhammad Ismail Sahib told me that he had heard many times from
hazrat sahib, the promised Masih, that he suffered from Hysteria and also
mentioned Melancholia. But the truth is that signs of nervous disorders developed
in him only as a result of his diligent mental work and day and night
preoccupation with literary compositions. These are often seen in patients
of Hysteria (and Melancholia) also." (Seerat-ul-Mahdi, Vol. 2, P. 55);
"This disease, having occurred once in the family, was bound to penetrate
into the next off- spring. Therefore hazrat Khilafat-ul-Masih Thani, Mian
Mahmud Ahmad Sahib, told me that occasionally, he also got an attack of
Hyster-Malaise". (From: Article written by Doctor Shah Nawaz Sahib Qadiani,

"The cause of all his troubles such as vertigo, headache, sleeplessness,
heart cramps, indigestion, diarrhea, excessive urination and hystermalaise
was only one and that was his weakness of nerves". (From the magazine: 'Review
Qadian, May 1927, P. 26);
"Some patient of Melancholia think: "I am king"; Some think "I am God", some
think "I am Prophet." (From Bayaz-Noor-ud-Din, P. 212, Vol. 10).
Comments: We have sufficed here to give only seven opinions and findings
from all those who are Qadianis and it is possible to give more opinions
as well but for the-sake of brevity we stop. However, it is confirmed without
any doubt that Mirza Ghulam Ahmad was Hyster-maniac.
It shall be worthwhile to give medical opinion of experts of Medicine on
this disease of Melancholia -- Hyster-Malaise. It will be noted that Mirza
Ghulam Ahmad suffered from them all.
From: 'Qanoon', Part One, Book three, Author Shaikh-ur-Raees. Boo Ali
"Melancholia is that malady in which worries and anxieties take the form
of imagined horrors and dreads as opposed to the normal. Its cause is atrabilious
temperament which takes away the entire essence of brain, leaving the patient
effectually distracted. Or the other cause of this malady is extreme heating-up
of the liver called Hyster-malaise. What happens is that excrement of victuals
and intestinal disorders through vapors collect in the liver and humours
of the body burn up and take the form of mania. Then black fumes arise from
these parts and go towards the head. It is this condition which is called
melancholic- flatulence, melancholic-fumigation or melancholic- hystermalaise".
From: ' Sharah-ul Asbab wal Alamat-Amraz, Malikhonia'. Author: Allama Burhan
ud bin Nafees.
"When thoughts and ideas change from the normal path into fears and disorders
it is called Melancholia.. With some patient this disturbance reaches to
such limits that he starts to consider himself a Diviner, with a knowledge
of hidden things. He informs in advance of what is going to happen later..
this disease increases in some patient so much so that he thinks himself
to have been transformed into an angel."
From: Same Author above:
"There is a branch of Melancholia, called Hystermania. This is caused by
strong black bile that accumulates in the digestive tract. From that part
of the body in which this matter accumulates rise black vapors that envelop
brain. Its symptoms are: belching out bitter fumes, finding food tasteless,
taste of edibles reduced, worsening of digestion, belly inflation, stool
liquefaction and rising of smoke-like fumes. "
From: 'Makhzan-e-Hikmat' Second Edition, Author Shamsul Atibba, Hakim Doctor
"Previous theory was that this disease manifested itself into disorders,
arising from animal faculty or from those vital principles of amiability
that originate from liver or digestive tract. But later researches indicate
that this disease takes from nerves... in the men nervous internal system
produces weaknesses of brain and is called Hyster-malaise.
"Symptoms of this disease are: patient's letharginess and his anxiousness.
He develops feelings of egotism, conceit and self-estimation. He is apt to
exaggerate in his conversations, feels little appetite and suffers from
From: 'Ikseer-e-Azam,' Vol. 1, P. 189, Author Hakim Muhammad Azam
"Symptoms of this disease are: digestive disorders, bitter vaporous belches,
constant mouth watering, belly flatulence, bowels grumbling, stomach inflated
and heated, false appetite vapors rising towards palate in fumes... Sometimes
upper part of the body shivers and shakes, knock-down in severe attack, fainting
and swooning..... sudden forgetfulness, drooping eye-lids, suffocation while
swallowing, sudden lightning-like sparkle flashing in front of the eyes .......

"Patient, if a religious scholar, lays claim to miracles, to prophet hood
and to supernatural powers. He talks of Divinity and preaches to men."
Comments: All the symptoms laid down by the experts of Medicine were
present in Mirza to the utmost extent. Very true, he was a patient of Melancholic
There can be no better statement than the categorical pronouncement of no
less a person than the so-called 'Khalifat ul Masih Thani', Mian Mahmud Ahmad
himself, in which he said that the disease of Hysteria was present in Mirza
Ghulam Ahmad: "Men also have this disease and those who suffer from this
are called Hyster-Maniacs." (From Friday Sermon, by Mian Mahmud Ahmad, Khalifa
Qadian, reproduced in Newspaper, 'Al-Fazl' Qadian Vol. 10, dated April
Mirza laid claims, very intensely, right from prophethood to Godhood. He
called himself superior to all revered prophets and claimed to have performed
one million miracles. He also claimed to be the King of the Aryans! He invited
people to adopt his religion and those who rejected him he called them atheists,
'Kafirs', and Hellish folks. He found faults with all the Prophets,
(peace upon them all) called respectful Companions of Our
Prophet(SAW) (Allah be pleased with
them all), as silly fools, and abused the saints of the entire Ummat. He
called Quranic commentators erring folks. He reproached narrators of the
Traditions and categorized Ulemas of the Ummat with Jews. He
dubbed the whole Ummat as "gone astray from the path" and passed obscene
remarks against learned men and pious persons.
Can a godly person or a religious revivalist stoop so low?
Certainly, Mirza Ghulam Ahmad was a maniac of Melancholic-Hyster-malaise.
A Heart-felt Submission to
With utmost sincerity of heart, I make this submission to you.
It is possible that contents of this article have displeased you at places
but my part is actually this much that I have quoted from Mirza's own writings.
Making those a basis, I have evaluated facts. If you don't agree with my
evaluation, then I leave it to you to judge for yourselves his truth or falsehood
on the touchstone of his writings.
I tell you that all our revered prophets were most dignified souls. What
to speak of them, even respectable saints and pious elders of our
Ummat never tied challenges of truth/untruth. Their call to righteousness
was direct. Here we find Mirza stipulating horrible bids for his veracity
again and again. No sooner did he lose the wager, he tied another. Can such
a gamble ever be a modus-operandi of chosen souls of Allah's faithful creatures?
This point alone should suffice to guide anyone to truth provided Allah has
bestowed him with judgment and insight.
Have you noticed that whereas Mirza risked his entire career over these gambles,
Allah the Exalted, on the other hand, if I may say so, vowed to let Mirza
never succeed in saying a thing, conditional on his truth. Anything Mirza
would say, Allah would bring it to naught.
For example, Mirza swore:
1. 'Sultan Muhammad will die';
2. 'Abdulla Atham will die';
3. 'Sanaullah will die';
4. 'Abdul Haq Ghaznavi will die';
and so on and so forth, "else call me a liar." Against this was the
fated ordainment that the more he would resort to swearing the more impossible
they would become.
Indeed, it was a limit on the part of Mirza that when predicting about the
death of an unholy Christian, he acknowledged himself to be 'the greatest
accursed man on the earth' if that did not happen. And true enough, it did
not happen. Allah, the Exalted, refused Mirza's plea against a defiled
'Worshipper of Cross.' (Mirza's words) Is 'here any instance to compare with
it?' For Allah's sake. Wonder over it.
If on the Day of Judgment, Allah the Exalted, puts this Question to Mirza
Ghulam Ahmad why did you mislead people by claiming to be a prophet after
And in reply, if Mirza submits: "Ya Allah! I was a patient of
Melancholic-Hyster-malaise. I told my people that I was a 'Miraqi' and even
wrote it so in my books. Doctors said I was a maniac of Hysteria. Pray ask
these 'sages' (the Qadianis) why did they follow nonsensical eruptions of
a diseased 'Miraqi' maniac and accepted me as their Prophet and Masih".
Then, my Brethren-in-humanity, what will you say in reply to Allah?
