Question No.1:           Write down the life history of Mirza Qadiani in brief. Write also that how he claimed Prophethood gradually?

Answer:                     Name and family

 Mirza Qadiani introduces himself in these word“My name is Ghulam Ahmad. The name of my father is Ghulam Murtaza and that of my grand father is Atta Muhammad and that of my great grandfather is Gul Muhammad. Our cast is Mughal Barlas. The documents of my ancestors, which are safe by this time, reveal that my forefathers came to this country from Samerqand.”

(Kitabal Birea, p.134; Roohani Khazain v.13, p.162-163)

Date and place of birth

               The ancesteral region of Mirza Qadiani is Qadian in Tehsil Batala and District Gurdaspur. About the date of his birth he writes:“I was born in 1839 or 1840, the last days of the Sikhs. In 1857, I was of 16 or 17”                           (Kitabul Brea, p.146, Roohani Khazain, v.13, p.177)


               In Qadian Mirza Ghulam Ahmed got education from many teachers. He writes,“In childhood a teacher, who was well versed in Persian, was hired for my education. He taught me the Holy Quran and some Persian books. The name of the teacher was Fazle Ilahi. When I was of ten, a Molvi, who knew Arabic well, was hired for my training. His name was Fazel Ahmed. I think that my education was God’s special ‘Fazel’ (mercy, bounty), so the names of teachers were also ‘Fazel’. Moulvi Sahib was a very religious man and he taught me with devotion. I learnt some books on grammer from him. When I became of 17 or 18 another teacher, Gul Ali Shah, also taught me. He was also appointed by my father to teach me in Qadian, I learnt from the last teacher some books on grammer, logic, ‘Hikmat’, etc. I learnt as much as God wished. I learnt some of the books on medicine from my father. He was very expert physician. During those days I was so much busy in the world of books that I was cut off from the world.

(Kitabul Brea, pp.161-163,  Roohani Khazain, v.13, pp.179-181)

Gaylif of Yoush and Service

               In his youth he stepped in the evil society. It can be estimated from Bashir Ahmed’s (his son) writing, “My narrates me that once in his youh the promised Christ (Mirza) went to receive the pension of your grand father. Mirza Imam Din also followed him. When he received the pension money Mirza Imam Din turned his mind and instead of taking him to Qadian took him elsewhere. After spoiling the whole amount, he lift him (Mirza). Due to shame he did not come home and because your grandfather was insisting on that he should do any job, he got job, on small pay, in Deputy Commissioner Court in Sialkot.”

(Seeratul Mehdi, part one, p.43. By Mirza Bashir Ahmed)

About Mirza Imamuddin Mirza Qadiani writes:“The people like Nizamuddin and Mirza Imamuddin were faithless and irreligious to the core.”                                               (Seeratul Mehdi, part one, p.114)

The favourite of the British Government

               During his service in Sialkot Mirza Ghulam Ahmad had good relations with some of the European Missioneries and the British officials. In the guise of religious debate, he made recret meetings with Christian missionaries. He convinced them of his full support. There is a reference in ‘Seerat Masehy Moud’, page 15, of a meeting between Mirza Qadiani and the incharge of British Intelligence Sialkot Mission, Mr Reverend Butter. The meeting took place in Rabwah in 1868. After some days Mirza Ghulam Ahmad Qadiani abandoned the job, settled in Qadian and started writing books. Mirza Qadiani did job in the court for four years, from 1864 to 1868.

The plan to root out Islam

               Reaching Qadian, he first tried to get attention of the common Muslims. For this he did some incomplete polemics with Christians, Hindues and Arias. In 1880, he started writing ‘Brahen Ahmedia’. Most of the essays in the book were in keeping with the faith of the Muslims. But Mirza introduced also some of his foretellings, in this book. In this book he announced explicitly the obedience and loyalty to the British and gave verdict against ‘Jihad’. From 1880 to 1884, he wrote four parts of ‘Brahen Ahmedia.’ The fifth part was published in 1905.

2-          True God is He who sent His Messenger in Qadian”

(Dafee Albala, p.11; Roohani Khazain, v.18, p.231)

“And say, O People! I have been sent by God to all of you.”

“We have sent a Messenger towards you, as a Messenger had been sent towards Pharoah” (Haqeeqatul Wuhi, p.101; Roohani Khazain, v.22, P.105)

3-          “If it is said that the man with a ‘Shariah’ and not every mischievous, is destroyed if he spreads mischieves, it is baseless. First of all one should understand as to what ‘Shariah’ (Divine Law) really is (i) The man who, through his Renelation, gave some commands and probibitions and gave a conon to his Ummah, is a non wish a ‘Shariah’. According to this definition, too, there are commands and prohibitions. As there are commands and prohibitious in this revelation:

This was revealed 23 years ago and there is command as well as prohibition in it. The both are present in my Revelation.

(ii)              If it is said that ‘Shariah’ should have new commonds and orders, it is false because God says: It means that Quranic teachings are present in Old Testamont also.

(iii)            If it is said that ‘Shariah’ should have commandments and prohibitions categorically stated, it is not true because had Injeel or Quran commands categorically stated, there would not have been any room for ‘Ijtahad’ (interpretation of Islamic law).

(Arbaeen No.4, p.6; Roohani Khazain, v.17, pp.435-436)

4-               “O leader, you are God’s Apostle. You are on the right path.”

               “Now it is clear that in these Revelations it has been said again and again that I am sent by God, that I have been appointed by God, that I am faithful to God and that believe whatever I say and that my enemy will go to Hell”

(Ansam Alham, p.62, Roohani Khazain, v.11, p.11)

               These are some of the claims of Mirza Qadiani. There are two motives behind these claims:

A:          To divide Muslims and to become psychophent of Muslims.

B:          Influence of melancholic nature.

Note:               Keeping in mind these two motives, Mirza Qadiani’s claims should be told to people gradually. The base of his claims is not on spirituality or reason, but on materialism, foolishness and false hood.
