Three avenues for one to contend against a man commissioned by God


This week [i.e. the week ending on 10 July 1899] a letter was received from the claimant of revelation who lives in Lahore, in which he has made one or two prophecies against the Promised Messiahas and his community. The Promised Messiahas said in this relation:

“Allah the Exalted knows how my heart throbs and is overwhelmed with passion for these people on account of my sympathy for them. I am posed with a challenge as to how I should advise such people. They do not come forth to contend against me by any means. There are only three ways. They can either contend against me in the manifestation of signs in light of those shown in the previous age; they can contend against me in showing new signs for the future; or if nothing else, they can at least pray that the one who is more beneficial to the people be blessed with long life, according to the following divine promise:

وَاَمَّا مَا یَنۡفَعُ النَّاسَ فَیَمۡکُثُ فِی الۡاَرۡضِ

But as to that which benefits men, it stays on the earth. [Surah al-Ra‘d, Ch.13: V.18]

“It shall then become clear who is beloved and chosen in the sight of God.”

(Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmadas, Malfuzat, Vol. 2, p. 28)
