Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad’s book ‘The Secret of Caliphate’ in context of ongoing Shia Sunni conflict.

Submitted by Rashid Jahangiri.


In the recent weeks there has been escalation of conflict between Saudi Arabia and Iran. In last few years they have been fighting proxy wars in multiple Muslim countries.  Before that there was almost a decade long Gulf war in 80s. In addition to these direct conflicts there has been an ongoing Shia Sunni sectarian conflict in country such as Pakistan. We cannot go back to first Islamic century and fix honest political mistakes that became religious conflict, and with time it only kept on increasing in magnitude.

More than 100 years ago Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad sahib had envisioned how this conflict will only further increase.  With development of technology to influence masses and increase in lethality of weapons it is all obvious. In recent days I reread HMGA book ‘Sirr-ul-Khilafah’ (The Secret of Caliphate). I wish fiery speakers among Shia and Sunni had read this book, many innocent Muslims lives could have been spared and Muslim world resources saved. Whether religious and political leaders on both side realize or not, but they will have to come to acceptance of what is written in this book for prosperity, peace, and development in Muslim world.  Teachings of Divine appointees are followed one way or other.

  1. The original book Sirr-ul-Khilafah was written in Arabic. The English translation referred to above is a translation of some parts of it.

    Recently a complete Urdu translation, accompanied by the Arabic original text, was published by Ahmadiyya Anjuman Lahore, done by Mr Amir Aziz Al-Azhari. It is at this link.
