Prophecies of Decline and Reform in Ahmadiyyat

There are several prophecies in Ahmadiyya Jama’at/Community literature which are either not (made) known to a large number of members, and/or which are overlooked and not interpreted correctly. I will mention some of these prophecies below. I have translated some of them from Urdu to English myself, and as my Urdu is not even as good as my English, I may have to amend some of the translation later on. One may come across new previously unheard of information when studying these prophecies, and become impatient with my interpretations, but if that happens, please keep this verse in mind:

[Q. 18:68,69] “He said, ‘You can not keep company with me in patience. And how can you be patient about things the knowledge of which you do not comprehend?’”

It seems that the current conflicts in the Ahmadiyya Jama’at started in particular after inappropriate and un-Islamic objections against Hadhrat Khalifatul-Masih III r.a. after an Ahmadi Muslim woman offered herself in marriage to him, the criticisms from men perhaps being out of envy. It is a Sunnah to marry, and it is a ‘fake sufi’ who would not think about following the Qur’an and Sunnah. Is the wife of a Khalifa not of any help to him in carrying out his duties?

So it started off as an ‘Arabic/English’ conflict – and ‘deen’ should be given preference to the ‘dunya’ – and this then led to the rise of cruel ‘Germans’ in authority. It is most likely that he warned on his death bed that the promise of True Khilafat is conditional, but it appears no heed was given to this warning. Those around him at the time can confirm this, or otherwise. If true, then there was a need to emphasise the supreme authority of the Qur’an, and then the Sunnah, at the time, which seems not to have been done, despite the warning given by the sagacious ‘old man’.

Freedom of Speech

In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, ever  Merciful.

True Islam upholds freedom of belief and speech. However, many muslims, sunnis as well as shi’ites, advocate legal punishment for blasphemy. In this article, we shall carefully examine what the Holy Qur’an teaches us in this regard.

Prophecies and True Dreams

In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Ever Merciful.

Dreams may be classified into three categories:

  1. Reflective
  2. Satanic (or Diabolical)
  3. Divine (or True)

The reflective dreams are those in which a persons own thoughts take on a physical shape. The satanic dreams are those which embody evil and sensual desires. The divine or true dreams are those which God Almighty shows to a person to convey to him/her some knowledge of the unseen (future or past).

Existence of God

In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Ever Merciful.

It is acknowledged by many philosophers and others, atheists and theists, that one cannot prove or disprove the existence of God by means of logical arguments. In this context, the Promised Messiah a.s. has written that the most logical arguments can do is reach the conclusion that there ought to be a God. It is by means of divine revelation that one becomes certain that He is i.e. He does exist.

Truth and Falsehood

In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Ever Merciful.

The teachings of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community are that we should firmly adhere to the truth under all circumstances. However, other muslims, sunnis as well as shi’ites, teach an allowance for lies and dishonesty in some circumstances. What does Islam actually teach in this regard?
