“Judge Hazrat Mirza sahib by weighing pros and cons, and let each person do it individually, away from a gathering”

This is what Maulana Muhammad Ali asked Muslims to do in his Friday khutba on the 30th anniversary of the death of Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad in 1938. Quoting the verse of the Quran, "I exhort you only to one thing, that you rise up for Allah’s sake by twos and singly; then ponder!" (34:46), he said:

"…when there is an adverse wind blowing against something, people cannot ponder on it rationally by gathering together. The hostile atmosphere does not allow thought and deliberation to be applied in the midst of a gathering. … people are advised to ponder in twos and individually, and ask: what is this man saying,…

Today the same kind of wind of hostility is blowing against the Mujaddid of the age, Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad. In this atmosphere it has become impossible for anyone to say something good about him, or speak of him approvingly, in a gathering.

In these circumstances the Quran teaches the method of judging by weighing both sides.

If you read books on Islam written by Christians it appears from them as if Islam, the Quran and the Prophet Muhammad possessed no good quality whatsoever, but are full of shortcomings and flaws.

Just as the Christians and the Arya Samaj collect in their books everything they consider to be wrong and objectionable about Islam, the Quran and the Holy Prophet Muhammad, the same is done by anti-Ahmadiyya writers in case of Hazrat Mirza sahib and the Ahmadiyya Movement. They consider it a service to Islam to collect anything which they regard as a defect or weakness, or as an objectionable statement."

It is as relevant and fresh today as when it was first delivered.

  1. In the khutba, Maulana Muhammad Ali says regarding Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad: "In this atmosphere it has become impossible for anyone to say something good about him, or speak of him approvingly, in a gathering."

    I recall here from memory that in the second South Africa court case during 1987, Professor Mahmud Ahmad Ghazi, expert witness from Islamabad on behalf of the anti-Ahmadiyya, admitted (I believe in response to the judge) that even if he knew something good about Mirza Ghulam Ahmad he would not be able to say it because of the repercussions he would face in Pakistan.


  2. The current topic of this blog brings to mind the revelation (ilham) of HMGA – "A Warner came unto the world but the world accepted him not, yet God will accept him and demonstrate his truthfulness with mighty onslaughts."

    Yes! Every onslaught ‘demonstrated his truthfullness’: the tide of Christian missionaries that he blocked by proving that Jesus is dead; his emphasis on the finality of Prophethood of Muhammad (PBUH) against the Mullah doctrine of physical return of Jesus; his recognition of the global colonization, the North-South divide and the subsequent world wars and by solving the riddle of the Dajjal and God-Magog; his refutation of Jihad by sword, a century before 9/11 happened. He accomplished it with the sole weapon at his hand, the Quran:

    25:52. So do not follow the disbelievers, and strive hard against them with the help of this (Qur'ân), a mighty striving.

    Who stood in his face? Who tried to block his march? Who tried to fetter his pen? Not the Christians, not the European powers, but, it were the Muslims of his own homeland, who are to this day oblivious of Law of Requital. In the context of experts like Professor Mahmud Ahmad Ghazi and many others like him and the droves that follow them blindly on the streets, in the ranks lined up in the mosques or in the halls of the Parliament (see link), the following verses of the Holy Quran come to mind:

    35:42. These people used to swear by Allâh by their most ardent oaths that if ever a Warner should come to them from Allâh they would be more rightly guided than anyone of the nations. But when a Warner did come to them this (coming of his) only increased them in aversion,

    35:43. And made them behave arrogantly on the earth and devise evil schemes; yet evil scheming recoils on none but its authors. They are, then, only waiting that We should follow (the same) practice which We did (in dealing) with the peoples of old. And you will find no change in that law of Allâh, nor will you ever find the law of Allâh shifting from its course.

    The depraved condition of the successive generations of these people is so because evil scheming recoils on none but its authors (35:43). Their example is that of the people of Noah:

    71:21. Noah said, `My Lord! they (- my people) have disobeyed me. They follow (such leaders) whose wealth and children only add to their loss.'

    In the daily life of Pakistan – that law of Allâh, nor will you ever find the law of Allâh shifting from its course (35:43):

    82:17. What should make you know what the Day of Requital is!

    82:18. Again (We repeat) how can you know what the Day of Requital is!

    82:19. (It is) the day when no person shall be able to do anything for another! On that day the (absolute) Judgment of every sort shall entirely belong to Allâh.

    The soil of Pakistan has borne decades of dictatorships; each followed by corrupt ‘democracies’; intertwined with humiliating wars of ’65, ’71, Siachen, Kargil; breaking away of Bangladesh and now Baluchistan; routine floods; earthquakes of Muzaffarabad and Quetta; ongoing pestilence of dengue and polio; fire of hell in the form of load shedding in each home; Afghan Wars I&II and their fallout; Taliban and other insurgencies in KPK and Baluchistan; rampant street crime; cities infested with mafias; sectarian killing sprees; drug and alcohol use of epidemic proportions;  raging corruption and bribery; diminishing water resources; polluted waters and air; and on and on, a never ending Requital:

    7:133. Then We sent upon them widespread death and destruction (caused by storms, epidemics,) and the locusts, the lice, the frogs and the blood (-wars); signs (all) distinct and well defined, but they continued to behave arrogantly for they were a people who had cut off their ties (with God).

    The President of Pakistan said today “Pakistan 'cannot get any worse” (see link). This is what they had been saying for many decades, but will it be so? The fish rots from its head:

    27:82. And when the judgment becomes due against them (-the unjust) We shall bring forth for them a (grossly) materialistic person which will rule over them (and also an insect which shall wound them to cause plague). That is because the people did not have firm faith in Our Messages.

    Now, the latest calamity that has crept up on them, the servitude of which they will never be able to wrestle from, at least in the foreseeable future and they will pay through their noses every time they break a morsel of bread, take a sip of tea, the water they will drink, each mile they travel, each pill of aspirin that they swallow, for each glimmer of light from the bulbs – they will be paying the ever increasing taxes on the interest of a loan exceeding 76 Billion US dollars to the IMF (see link). A pervasive condition – (It is) the day when no person shall be able to do anything for another! (82:19):

    7: 34. For (the end of) every nation there is a term fixed, so that when their term comes, they cannot delay a single moment (to avoid it) nor can they get ahead (of it to escape from it).

    Coming back to the said prophecy of HMGA which did not take long for its fulfillment and its ongoing effects, and doubts these Mullahs and their blind followers might harbor about it, to them the following is enough:

    6:65. Say, `He has power to send upon you a calamity from above and from beneath your feet or He may throw you into confusion by making you confront with conflicting parties, and make you taste the dissension (and violence) of one another.' Behold! how We explain Our Messages in different ways so that they may give thought.

    6:66. Your people have cried lies to this (Qur'ân), though it is the truth. Say, `I am not responsible for your affairs.'

    6:67. For (the fulfillment of) every prophecy there is an appointed time, and it will not go beyond that, and soon you will come to know (its truth).

    Hopefully the Pakistani nation will come to know (its truth). The solution for such an abysmal state of a nation is only in Quran as pointed out above by Maulana Muhammad Ali in his khutba. The following verses are only a reminder:

    54:32. And We have made the Qur'ân easy for admonition, and to understand, follow and remember. But is there anyone who would take heed?

    54:39. Now taste My punishment and (suffer the consequences of ignoring) My warning.

    54:40. And indeed We have made the Qur'ân easy for admonition and to understand, follow and remember. But is there anyone who would take heed?

    From Rashid Jahangiri:

    Documentary Film 'Drone Wars'

    Holy Prophet Muhammad SAWS hadith: Dajjal will shower fire from sky.

    HMGA revelation (Ilham):  "A Warner came unto the world but the world accepted him not, yet God will accept him and demonstrate his truthfulness with mighty onslaughts."

    People with internal sight can see how both of above personalities statments came true.

  4. The country that declared the Mujaddid of our times as ‘imposter’ by its law is now finding the only solution to its turmoil in what the same Mujaddid used to say about the British rule of his time. He was consequently branded ‘kafir’ because he un-equated Jihad with sword.

    See for yourself the leader of one of the Deobandi party on this YouTube video [@25:55 to 29:50] in his interview of February 12, 2014 on Pakistan TV political analysis show – Capital Talk.  Fazlur Rehman, while quoting all the Deobandis mullahs in Pakistan is essentially quoting a unified fatwa that the armed struggle against the state is un-Islamic.  It is the same Fazlul Rehman, whose father Mufti Mahmood was a leading figure in declaring Ahmadi’s as ‘kafir’ in the National Assembly in 1974.

    The said Mullah leaves us with the fundamental question. Are all the Mullahs in Pakistan now ‘kafirs’ too? For sure, by their own historical standard they are so. Alas! They came to this status more than a century too late. Yes! They did arrive, but only after mighty onslaughts against them:

    "A Warner came unto the world but the world accepted him not, yet God will accept him and demonstrate his truthfulness with mighty onslaughts." – a revelation of Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad.
