Promised Messiah

“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.” (Noah’s Ark, p. 10)

Alas for Islam! Islam has always been wronged.

Allah the Almighty would make successors in this Ummah as He had made successors in previous nations (Surah al-Nur, Ch.24: V.56). 

It is incumbent that man not adopt the way of hypocrisy. For example, if a Hindu (despite being a ruler or high official) were to suggest that Ram and Rahim are one and the same, a person should not agree with such an opinion thoughtlessly. Allah the Exalted does not forbid one from treating others with civility. One should always respond politely. It is not wise to make comments that unnecessarily enrage others and which result in pointless conflict. But, a person should never conceal the truth

When disciplinary action is meted out to people in employment and in other matters – and they are reprimanded by rulers – how wonderful would it be if they were to bear hardship for the sake of Allah the Exalted!

An allegation usually raised by the Jamaat’s adversaries is that Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad, the Promised Messiah and Imam Mahdi (peace be upon him) said on one occasion that no messiah could appear after him, whereas at another place he wrote that many more messiahs could. Below is the answer to this allegation.

A superficial oath of allegiance to a spiritual guide brings no benefit and it is difficult to derive any gain from such an oath of allegiance.

This is the reality of repentance (which has been mentioned above). But why is repentance an integral part of swearing allegiance to a spiritual guide? The fact of the matter is that man is given to negligence.

The renowned Lord Bishop George Alfred Lefroy (1854-1919) conveyed an open address on 25 May 1900 and announced that while the Prophet Muhammad s.a. had left this world and was buried in Medina, the Muslims believed that Jesus a.s. was still alive in paradise.

One should understand the benefit and need of swearing an oath of allegiance to a spiritual guide.
