Secular & Spiritual Treasures of the Promised Reformer

Hazrat Mirza Bashiruddin Mahmud Ahmad (ra) – the Promised Reformer (Musleh Maud) and Second Caliph of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community

On 22 January 1886, The Promised Messiah, Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad (as) travelled to a town in India called Hoshiarpur, where he entered into a 40-day period of solitude, in worship of his Lord. During this time, he received a grand prophecy of the Promised Reformer (Musleh Maud), a son who would prove to be a true servant of faith, and a large proponent to the spread of Islam throughout the entire world. One aspect of that prophecy was that ‘he will be filled with secular and spiritual knowledge.’

This prophecy was fulfilled in the person of Hazrat Mirza Bashiruddin Mahmud Ahmad (ra), whose scholarly works have remained unmatched in the Islamic world. The Review of Religions is honoured with the opportunity of translating some of these amazing literary works, for the benefit of English readers.
