Facts From Fiction

Responding to ‘the Muslim Skeptic’ – Proving False the Baseless Allegations Against the Promised Messiah (as)


Raziullah Noman, Canada

Recently, an anti-Ahmadi preacher by the name of Daniel Haqiqatjou released another article in the Muslim Skeptic lying against the Promised Messiah and Imam Mahdi, Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad (as). The Prophet Muhammad (sa) stated:

كَفَى بِالْمَرْءِ كَذِبًا أَنْ يُحَدِّثَ بِكُلِّ مَا سَمِعَ

 ‘It is enough of a lie for a man to narrate everything he hears’. [1]

Daniel Haqiqatjou relies on his cleric named Mufti Abdullah Moolla, who has clearly not studied any of the books of the Promised Messiah (as). The ‘Mufti’ raised two allegations against the Promised Messiah (as).

His first allegation was against the prophecy of Lekh Ram. This prophecy has been explained in detail in the following article published in The Review of Religions titled A Murder in British Lahore – Closing the Case of Lekh Ram.

The cleric of Daniel Haqiqatjou failed to mention why this prophecy was made. Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad (as) wrote:

‘Had he not trespassed all limits in vituperation and had he avoided publicly slandering our Prophet, may peace and blessings of Allah be upon him, he would have died after completing the stipulated six years. But his unbridled vituperation did not even allow him live that period to completion. There was yet one year remaining when he was seized by the jaws of death.’ [2]

The anti-Ahmadis are only spending their time defending the worst opponents of the Prophet Muhammad (sa). The time limit of the prophecy was six years, but the ‘mufti’ has written that there was a six month window period, which further shows he did not do any research on this prophecy. In fact, the prophecy was beautifully fulfilled. 

Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad (as) writes:

‘And then, in the public announcement of 22 February 1893 which forms part of my book, A’ina-e-Kamalat-e-Islam, I had prophesied unequivocally, long before his death, that Lekh Ram would be cut to pieces like the calf of Samiri, and this indicated the fact that the fate of Lekh Ram would be like that of the calf of Samiri that was cut to pieces on a Saturday. And it alluded to his assassination. Accordingly, Lekh Ram was assassinated on Saturday. Only a day before — on Friday — it had been ‘Id for the Muslims in those days. The calf of Samiri had similarly been cut to pieces on a Saturday, and that had been a day of ‘Id for the Jews. Just as the calf of Samiri was burnt after being cut to pieces, so was Lekh Ram burnt after he had been cut to pieces. His assassin first cut his intestines, and then the surgeon further opened up his wound, and he was finally cremated. His bones were then cast into the river just like Samiri’s calf. God Almighty likened him to Samiri’s calf because just as the calf was quite lifeless and was like the modern toys that produce sound when their button is pressed; a sound emanated from this calf too. Thus, God Almighty affirms that Lekh Ram was lifeless and devoid of spiritual life. His sound was quite like that of Samiri’s calf, and he was not endowed with true knowledge, true perception, true relationship with God, and true love for Him. It was the fault of the Aryas that they accorded to this lifeless person — who had no life of spirituality within him and was simply a corpse — a position that should have been accorded to a living person. Therefore, his end was like that of Samiri’s calf.’ [3]

The author also lied regarding another prophecy of Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad (as), which was that he would die in Makkah or Madinah. Once again, the ‘mufti’ has twisted the writings of the Promised Messiah (as), and has followed the footsteps of those who try to twist the meanings of their holy book. He also follows the footsteps of the Muslim scholars who lead people astray. The revelation was as follows:

‘1) Allah has decreed since eternity that He and His Messengers shall prevail. 2) God, the Merciful, says that there is peace, meaning that ‘you will not die in disappointment or defeat.’ 3) I shall die in Mecca or in Medina’. [4]

The Promised Messiah (as) himself writes about this prophecy:

‘This sentence ‘I shall die in Mecca or in Medina’ means that before my death I shall be bestowed a victory like that of Mecca. That is to say as the Holy Prophetsa had vanquished his enemies through the manifestation of the majestic Signs of Allah, so will it happen now. The second meaning is that before my death, I shall be bestowed a victory like that of Medina which means that people’s hearts will of their own be inclined towards me. The phrase:

كَتَبَ اللهُ لَأَغْلِبَنَّ أَنَا وَرُسُلِي

[Allah has decreed, I and My Messengers shall prevail] points to a victory like that of Mecca and the phrase:

سَلَامٌ قَوْلًا مِنْ رَبٍّ رَحِيمٍ

[Peace is the word from the Merciful Lord] points to a victory like that of Medina.’ [5]

Had the mufti read the prophecy in context, he would have known that this prophecy was fulfilled word for word. In fact, another error of the ‘mufti’ was that he thought Qadian was in Pakistan. This further shows he has no knowledge on Islam Ahmadiyya.

As for the false allegation against the death of Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad (as), this is answered in detail in The Review of Religions article titled, The Noble Death of the Promised Messiah (as).

Regarding his prophecies, Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad (as) writes: ‘All of my prophecies have been fulfilled, or in the case of those prophecies which consist of two parts, at least one part has come true so far. Even if a person were to strive all his life in the hope of finding a prophecy that was uttered from my mouth, about which one could assert that it has remained unfulfilled, he will not be able to find a single one. However, out of shamelessness or ignorance, one is free to say whatever he likes.’
