False Prophecies of a False Prophet
Mirza Ghulam Qadiani's predictions on Multiple Sons
(All references are from Qadiani books)
On February 20, 1886, while Mirza Ghulam's wife was pregnant, Mirza made
the following statement:
"Indeed, Allah the Compassionate,
the Merciful Who is powerful over all things, informed me that he will exhibit
His sign - The Sign of Mercy - the clear sign - a handsome son, shapely,
pious -- treasure of covert and overt science -- the son of the beloved,
fortunate, the exhibitor of the First and the Last, the exponent of truth
and spiritual altitude, as if Allah has descended from heaven. The
child will grow speedily, will set prisoners free and by him all nations
will be blessed.... This great son will be from this present pregnancy."
(Tabligh-e-Risalat, Vol. 1, P. 58)
After all these pronouncements and announcements, Mirza Ghulam's wife gave
birth to a daughter in April. The daughter who was names "Ismat" died
in 1891, when she was only five years old. Thus, Mirza Ghulam's first prophecy
about a son failed.
Apparently, Mirza Ghulam did not learn from his mistakes! On January
1, 1903, while his wife was again pregnant, Mirza Ghulam prophecised:
"Praise be to Allah Who bestowed upon me, inspite of old age, four sons and
has given me good news of a fifth."
(Roohany Khazaen, Vol. 19, P. 360;
Nawahil-ur-Rahman, P. 131/139)
On the 28th day of the same month, his wife gave birth to a daughter who
died within a few months. Thus, the second prophecy of Mirza Ghulam
regarding a son failed.
When for a third time Mirza's wife conceived, Mirza Ghulam was quick to proclaim:
"The son of nobility will be born, a lad well-proportioned and
(Al-Bushra, Vol. 2, P. 91)
Only a few months after this prophecy, on June 24, 1904, his wife delivered
a daughter! Yes, once more a daughter who was named "Amatul Hafiz"!
meant to repeatedly expose the falsehood in Mirza Ghulam's claims. Yet,
Mirza Ghulam and his associates tried to save face and suggest that all these
prophecies did not belong to the specific pregnancy, but somehow were foretold
about a pregnancy, yet to come!
Indeed, Mirza made additional prophecies:
"Truly, we give you tiding of a meek boy."
(Badr, September 16, 1907; Al-Bushra, Vol. 2,
"I shall soon bestow upon you a pious boy. My God! Grant
me pure progeny. Truly, we give you tidings of a boy whose name is
(Al-Bushra, Vol. 2, P. 136)
On May 26, 1908, within a few months of this prophecy, Mirza Ghulam died
without ever conceiving again. His last child was his daughter, "Amatul
Hafiz", born in 1904. Thus,
Mirza to be untruthful on four prophecies regarding a new son.
Is there any doubt that Mirza Ghulam was not receiving
revelation from Allah(SWT)?
