  1. Assalamo-Alaikum-Warahmatullah-Wabarakatahu,

    so what do you think where Massih-e-Moud received the knowledge? He studied the Holy Qur’an, the Traditions of our beloved Holy Prophet (Peace and Blessings of Allah be upon him), never missed his prayers and was a modest man, like the Holy Prophet (Peace and Blessings of Allah be upon him). I always pray to Allah that he may save me from pride/ego and vanity.

    2 Man and definitely countless others who bowed to the will of Allah. When we achieve this Status, then we will surely succeed. Allah knows best who will be credited for what and which service.

    Knowledge is Might
    Might is Right
    Used with Sight
    Brings Heavenly Light

  2. Assalamu Alaikum,

    JazakAllah for your kind words. However, I cannot take any credit for what I wrote above.
    It’s all by the Grace of Allah, secondly all the information I have provided has been taken from existing material on (The Promised Messiah – Prophecies Fulfilled)

    Someone had told me about these verses very recently, I felt that it was important to share this knowledge. This Blog, Alhumdolillah has been a great forum to gain and share knowledge.

    But, you are correct you can gain knowledge if you want to find it. We have countless resources at our fingertips: The Holy Qur’an, Ahadith, Promised Messiah (as) books and literature by other learned scholars on We have Hadhur’s Friday Sermons, we have this blog. The list is endless.

    Most importantly, one must turn to prayer. Without the Grace of Allah we can achieve nothing.


  3. Assalamo-Alaikum-Warahmatullah-Wabarakatahu,

    thank you for your reply. There is no doubt in the truth of Massih-e-Moud (as), but breaking down the facts of the heavenly signs in detail make me think that you, Alhamdolillah, know much more than I do. That is my guess. You can become a scholar in today’s time, sitting at home. You just need to be authorized by the Islamic Scholars later on. It will take you longer than the students in the Jamia, but our goal should bee to seek knowledge as much as we can so that we can pass it to the next generation.

    This is my personal view and this should not stop students to join Jamia.

    Man proposes, God disposes…

  4. Assalaamu Alaikum,

    Yes you are correct the verse is about Holy Prophet (saw) and also the Promised Messiah (as). I mention this verse because in order to understand the truth one must accept and recognise the Promised Messiah (as).

    I can see you have access to the commentary too.

    On this note I would like to add another reference

    Surah Al Haqqah verse 44-50

    It is a revelation from the Lord of the worlds.
    And if he had forged and attributed any sayings to Us,
    We would surely have seized him by the right hand,
    And then surely We would have severed his life-vein,
    And not one of you could have held Our Punishment off from him

    In this and in the preceding three verses the argument is given that if the Holy Prophet had been a forger of lies. God’s strong hand would have seized him by the throat and he would, certainly, have met with a violent death and his whole work and mission would have gone to pieces, as such is the fate of a false prophet. ( Commentary)

    People must understand that IF Hadrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad (as) was a false prophet (nauzubillah) then how could his community successfully spread to the furthest lands? So many promises were fulfilled and inshaAllah will continue to be fulfilled. Promised Messiah (as) did not die a violent death, but a natural one.
    The Prophecy of the abdication of the Czar was fulfilled 1917.
    The Holy Prophet (saw) predicted about Imam Mahdi that a number of false claimants to the office of Imam Mahdi would appear and that the Mahdi would come from among the Muslim Ummah. Only one would be the true Mahdi, who would be the true follower of the Holy Prophet(saw). To establish the truth of his claim, two heavenly signs were to appear. These signs would be an eclipse of the sun and moon in the month of Ramadhan. The lunar eclipse would occur on the first of the possible nights of such eclipses, the 13th of the month, and the sun would eclipse on the second of the possible days when a solar ecliplse can occur. This prophecy was fulfilled in this manner.

    Hadrat Ahmad(ra) was born in 1835 and departed from this world in 1908. The years, as you will see, of this astronomical activity are between 1833 and 1910, and the years of his birth and death are marked by heavenly signs.

    The Bielids comet was first discovered in 1772. In 1832, the comet passed very close to the earth. In 1845, the comet was observed to break in two, and at the time of its expected return in 1866, it was not found. Meteor showers observed from this comet were observed in 1830, 1838, and in 1885. 39,546 meteors were observed in 4 hours. Since 1899, very few showers from this comet have been observed.

    There are many more prophecies that have been fulfilled, however, I feel I have already digressed enough.

    I’m not a scholar, I’m an insignificant servent, so please forgive me if I have made a mistake, my comment is merely to emphasise to the readers how important it is to recognise the Promised Messiah (as).


  5. I have a question:

    Does this verse not speak about Muhammad Mustafa (saw) who will come? Because another name of him was Ahmad. There is no doubt that Hadhrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad (saw) has been foretold in the Holy Qur’an, to be specific, in Sura Jumu’ah Verse 3-4!

    Thanks in advance for any reply…

  6. Assalaamu Alaikum,

    This was a very useful talk, jazakAllah for all your efforts.

    Hafiz Sahib gave some wonderful examples from the Holy Quran and Ahadith. May I kindly request the references? jazakAllah 

    Dazzle : Assalaamu Alaikum, 

    Unfortunately, you have been misinformed about Ahmadis performing Hajj. Firstly, there are many Ahmadis that perform Hajj and Umrah  every year.

    I would like to kindly refer you to a few Q and As answered by the fourth Khalifah Hadrat Mirza Tahir Ahmad (RA)

    I would like to leave you with a verse of the Holy Quran:

    Chapter 61 verse 7
    And remember when Jesus, son of Mary, said, ‘O children of Israel, surely I am Allah’s Messenger unto you, fulfilling that which is before me of the Torah, and giving glad tidings of a Messenger who will come after me. His name will be Ahmad.’ And when he came to them with clear proofs, they said, ‘This is clear enchantment.’

    I pray InshaAllah you seek knowledge, instead of going by hearsay. I could carry on about each of your points and various allegations against our community, But what it really comes down to is, whether you want to seek the truth or just take part in mischief.


  7. where are those who are blessed with understanding? Many times Allah calls to think and reflect what is written in the Holy Qu’ran! Where are those who think and reflect? Where are those people with understanding?

    The Dajjal is the greatest enemy of our time. How blind we have got. We live in a time where a simple right of every human being is questioned and kicked. The right to do – in certain boundaries – whatever he/she pleases. That is dangerous. May Allah (swt), Almighty save us.

    I’m dazzled…

  8. 1. It is Almighty God who determines who can or cannot perform Hajj. Not you.

    2. My beloved Hudur (abta) has mentioned Hajj many times.

    3. Phoney? I don’t have the energy…

    You are bitter, bitter, and a bit more bitter. Stop focusing on other people’s Iman when you patently need to invest significant time to your own.

  9. the same hajj you are now allowed to perform?

    the same hajj your khalifa forgot to mention in his sermon?

    you people are so phoney it is unbelievable. but keep it up- nobody is fooled accept your own.
