Refutation: A Disgraceful Death – really? Islam Ahmadiyya

It is alleged that Hadrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad (‘alayhi al-salam) passed away in an accursed manner. The precise details of the his death are not fully known to us.  The information that we choose to rely upon in this matter must be assessed using the normal historic methodology. Therefore, such information should be from a reliable source who witnessed the final days of Hadrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad (‘alayhi al-salam), or was relayed such information from a reliable witness.

It is not necessary to assess the filthy and vile allegations of the opponents of Hadrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad (‘alayhi al-salam), but to simply deal with the facts as we know them. In order to be impartial, I will rely upon the biography of Hadrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad (‘alayhi al-salam) written by Iain Adamson who is a non-Ahmadi academic. In the final days of Hadrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad’s (‘alayhi al-salam) time on earth he was given news of his approaching demise by Almighty Allah Who revealed to him the words:

‘‘Departure, again departure. God will take up thy burden.’’

Despite feeling extremely ill, he continued with his work diligently and completed his book ‘’A Message of Peace’’ the day before he passed away. He also continued to fulfil his obligations to Almighty God and would wake at 2am to pray his tahajjud prayer and was meticulous in the subsequent five obligatory prayers and additional voluntary prayers. Even when he was in the depths of his illness, and was bed-bound, he still symbolically performed his ritual ablutions and conducted his prayers. His illness deepened even further until he began to slip in and out of consciousness. Each time that he would awake, his loving lips would utter the words:

 ‘‘O God, my beloved God’’

On May 26th 1908 he breathed his final breath and passed onto the next world. These are the facts as we know them; and they may not be as ”Bollywood” as the modern mythical genre surrounding his death, but are nevertheless the facts. If anyone should label such a death accursed, or disgraceful, then every true believer should hope for a similarly accursed death.

Some misguided people add that his death was accursed because he was afflicted with certain internal problems and that his death took place in an undesirable place. The arguments of such people are as objectionable as the amateurish methodologies they adopt regarding simple evidential matters such as proof and evidence; that is to say, they have none. Nevertheless, it is worth us taking a look at a hadith in which the Prophet is reported to have stated:

‘‘There are seven types of martyrdom in addition to being killed in Allah’s cause: one who dies of plague is a martyr; one who is drowned is a martyr; one who dies of pleurisy is a martyr; one who dies of an internal complaint is a martyr; one who is burnt to death is a martyr; who one is killed by a building falling on him is a martyr; and a woman who dies while pregnant is a martyr.’’  (Sahih Al-Bukhari, Bk.20, No.3105)

And so, it remains mind boggling just how far the opponents of Islam Ahmadiyya will go to discredit Hadrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad (‘alayhi al-salam). Imagine how ”interesting” life would be if we could all just invent the truth!!!

It is fitting that we finish with an apt quotation of the Hadrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad (‘alayhi al-salam) who said:

‘…God almighty knew that if I were to be afflicted with some objectionable disease like leprosy, lunacy, blindness, apilepsy., my opponents would conclude that I was the subject of Divine wrath. Therefore, He gave me the good news in advance, as is mentioned in Braheen Ahmadiyya, that He would safeguard me against every objectionable disease and would complete His favour unto me’. (Arbaeen, No.3, Pg.30)

  1. i would like add a correction here. The line should read on the 26th of may he BREATHED (not breather).


  2. The disbelievers to this day mock at the last days of our beloved Porphets(saw), how at times he(saw) took support of sahaba with his feet dragging behind him(saw) so he couls be taken to to the mosque for prayers. So heart wrenching!

    Yet these poeple continue to level vile attacks on a prophet that was rasied from amongst them! The Jews of today accuse the Messiah of this age of dieng an accursed death!

  3. Everyone dies. Everyone dies of something.

    It must be embarassing that it takes religion to turn this tragic fact of our brief existence into a battleground for insult and insinuation.

    Seriously. This individual passed away. You’ll die one day, just like me and the moderator and everyone else. Quite possibly of something even more ”horrible” than cholera. Deal with it.

  4. “Alas for my servants! there comes not a Messenger to them but they mock at him.”( holy quran)[36;31

    ]assalamu alikum….a person had also asked me about this matter and i answered it from the notes of Hazrat Mirza Bashiruddin Mahmood Ahmed khalifathul Masih II..

    ” around 10:30 in the morning his soul appeared before that True Emperor for the sake of serving Whose religion he had spent his entire life. Innalillah e wa inna ilayhe rajioon (indeed we are from Allah and to Him is our return). All through his ailment, there was one word constantly on his lips, and that word was “Allah”.”


  5. Quite the contrary, dear Moderator. May Allah bless you and reward you for your “Ghayrah” – sense of dignity and protective jealousy – for the honour of the Imam al-Mahdi (a.s.).

  6. Dear brother, you have misunderstood the nature of my comment. However anybody dies is of no concern to me, be they a Prophet or ordinary man or woman. What concerned my sensitivities was that many people were attaching to this allegation a kind of filth which I felt did not belong here on this blog. Similarly, I could not bring myself to accept or tolerate comments which tried, in a filthy way, to accuse our beloved Prophet Jesus (‘alayhi al-salam) of suffering an accursed death. Such words are, of course, only harmful to the filthy natured individuals who levy them, but, at the same time, one has to ask if they should be tolerated on this platform.

    Nevertheless, if you feel that in making that comment I became a shameful person, even if for just a moment, then please forgive me. Jazak Allah

    Sir you said that “This is a first for me, but I will delete this post after a few hours purely because it is beneath me to allow it to remain here. I apologise for having ever touched this subject, it was a mistake”.

    Sorry but shame on you.

    Remember that the Yahood and the Christians said and still say that Esa (as) died a disgraceful death on the Cross and that Hadhret Yahyah (as) was beheaded. Even today the Jews say that Rasul Allah SAW died an accursed death. I wont mention what they say but it is very vile.

    Actually in relation to the biography that this person mentioned we have to remember that anyone can write a biography. Look at the Biography called the bible, is that fact? It is accepted by over 1 Billion people as fact. This brother in law was referring to the last illness of Mesih al Mahdi (as) when he had told one of his sahabah that he thought that he may have had Cholera. The biographer then assumed that this was the case. However we know from all the many biographies of Ahmadis and non Ahmadis alike over the last 100 years that this was not the case. Everyone that dies- dies due to some internal failing. This was the case since Adam and it was the case with Mesih al Mahdi (as). How ever we know that it was not cholera but rather some other internal health failing due to old age. He was declared deceased by a non Muslim doctor and transported across the country by rail which, if it was cholera is strictly forbidden even for military British commanders or people of a high class and standing because of risk of infection.

    Also the hadit from bukari, is it about those who fight Jihad with the sword? Well did the pregnant woman die on the battle field? Or was a bed taken of the battle field so that the warrior could die in his bed? Rubbish.

  8. I do not accept that Hadrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad (‘alayhi al-salam) died a disgraceful death. This is a first for me, but I will delete this post after a few hours purely because it is beneath me to allow it to remain here. I apologise for having ever touched this subject, it was a mistake.

  9. @ahmadisister

    So…are you accepting that Mirza died as per his father-in-law? Do Ahmadis burn his book?

  10. One biography of many. Regardless, if that was the death, and it was not, it would not have been a disgraceful death under the blessed deaths listed in Sahih al-Bukhari. You are simply wrong.

  11. Once again you people miss the problem or the point in our argument. Someone tell me…why do Non-Ahmadis claim that “Your-founder” died a horrible death, and they even sometimes refer to a [deleted]??? Does anyone know? What is their reference point??

    I’ll give you guys an answer here…the father-in-law of your founder told us this in his book, which is an autobiography of the life of “Your-founder”.

    Also, the reference to Bukhari that was given is in terms of warriors or those who fight for Islam literally.

  12. Jazakallah bro!!!!!!! dunno why these peeps don’t have anything better to do than make stuf up bout the dead!!!!!!!!!!
