23rd March 1889: The Birth of Ahmadiyya- Revival of True Islam by Promised Messiah

Alislam.org: He it is Who has raised among the unlettered people a Messenger from among themselves who recites unto them His Signs, and purifies them, and teaches them the Book and Wisdom though before that they were in manifest error; And He will raise him among others of them who have not yet joined them. He is the Mighty, the Wise.” Surah Al-Jumuah 62:3-4

A companion of The Holy Prophet sa relates: One day we were sitting with The Holy Prophet sa when this chapter was revealed. I enquired from Muhammad sa. Who are the people to whom the words and among others of them who have not yet joined them refer? Salman ra, a Persian was sitting among us. The Holy Prophetsa put his hand on Salman ra and said.If faith were to go up to the Pleiades, a man from among these would surely find it. (Bukhari).

The advent of The Holy Prophet sa is described metaphorically as the appearance of God Almighty. The Holy Prophet sa became the mirror reflecting Divine Attributes. He was Al- Abd. The Holy Quran calls him Abdullah (72:20) — The Servant of Allah. For the latter days God in His Mercy sent us the servant of The Servant — Ghulam Ahmad asMirza Ghulam Ahmad Qadiani as (Ahmad as) claimed to be The Promised Messiah and Mahdi. Ahmad as claimed to be the metaphorical second coming of Jesus as of Nazareth and the divine guide, whose advent was foretold by the Prophet of Islam, Muhammad sa.

  1. That is an Excellent post. AlHamdu Lillah.
    Another proof of the truth is as follows:
    It is reported in the Ahadith that promised Messiah will kill the Dajjal i.e. anti-Christ.

    We need to understand the meaning of dajjal (Mentioned in Hadith) and Yaajooj Maajooj (Mentioned in Quran) even though Dajjal is also described in the Quran without the exact word itself.

    Dajjal is the religious anti-Christ people who have inverted and perverted the real teachings of Jesus a.s, they are spread all over the world distributing booklets with wrong teachings, attributing them to Jesus a.s. These are non-political Church people who are preaching wrong doctrine. Dajjal is not a single person. It is a group of persons.
    The Yajooj Maajooj are mentioned in the Quran. They are secular, political powers, Russia and the western powers. They are non-religious (secular) governments.
    It is a sad story that the Muslim leaders never tried to identify the Dajjal and Yaajooj Maajooj. We are well aware that Dajjal is very much here in the world since a long time, more than 150 years. The question arises, when Dajjal is here then where is the Promised Messiah? Promised Messiah must be here also.
    Only one person has claimed to be the Promised Messiah. That is Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad a.s.
    It is also strange that many people have, in the past, claimed to be the Mahdi. But no one, at the same time, claimed to the Isa. It is only Hazrat Mirza sahib a.s. who has claimed to be the Imam Mahdi and the Promised Messiah a.s. That is correct, according to the Hadith of Ibne Majah which states that “There is no Mahdi except Isa.” That means the Promised Isa a.s. will also be the Imam Mahdi. (Deedah Baayad).

  2. Peace be on all.
    March 23, 1889 The Promised Messiah-the Mahdi has come – Khilafat Continues his Peace Mission.

    As it was prophesied, when the faith ascended to Pleiades, weaknesses in practices spread, bloodshed of innocents on the name of Allah was being considered right way, other religions kept attacking Islam from all directions, clergies were on retreat and busy attacking each others’ creed, millions of Muslims were announcing leaving Islam, heart of a Man of God was melting since long at this situation and he was trying his best to defend the faith — which claimed it was for all humanity, yet it was shrinking day by day.

    Then God chose him to serve and revive Islam and take it’s true, real and peaceful message to the ends of world by prayers, peaceful means and patience.

    Several years latter
    Under the Divine Guidance, The International Ahmadiyya Movement or the Ahmadiyya Jama’at was founded on 23 rd of March 1889 by the Hadrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad (on whom be peace), in a small town, Qadian, India. He announced that he had been a constant recipient of divine revelation for some years. Under divine guidance, he claimed that he was the expected Reformer of the Latter Days as Promised Messiah and Mahdi as the ardent devotee of Holy Prophet Muhammad (pbuh).

    The Holy Prophet (pbuh) had prophesied about the weakness of his followers in latter days in many prophetic statements. For example, he said, There will come a time upon the people when nothing will remain of Islam except its name only and nothing will remain of the Quran except its inscription. Their mosques will be splendidly furnished but destitute of guidance. Their divines will be the worst people under the Heaven and strife will issue from them and avert to them.
    [Ref: Mishk’at]

    Not only this, Holy Prophet (pbuh) mentioned several conditions of that era from various points of view, which required centuries to get developed and no human hand could have created them artificially. All these conditions collectively fulfilled or started around 14 th Islamic century. A brief overview of the era is following:

    Religious conditions: Spread of Christianity. Weak practices of Muslims. Lack of offering of Salaat. Only apparent care of Holy Quran.

    Morals: Spread of indecencies, fornication, drinking, gambling. Misconduct with parents but good conduct with friends.

    Knowledge: Decline of religious knowledge. Increase in acquiring worldly knowledge.

    Living conditions: Respect due to physical attributes, not due to faith in heart. Muslims not learning Arabic. Women dressing like men. Men wearing make ups.

    Physical: Attacks of germs. Frequent sudden deaths. More women than men.

    New means of travel and international relations: Conventional rides like camels became obsolete. Mention of Dajjal’s donkey walking over water with cloud in front and after it implies obvious fuel consuming vehicles. Vast international relations due to new modes of travels.

    Economy: More gold and precious metals. Increase in interest based economy. Christian nations wealthier. Those who accept Dajjal will become rich.

    Politics: Decline of Muslim states. Lack of civilized governments in Arabs. No one will be able to compete with Gog and Magog. Increase in strength of labourers. Increase in officials.

    Land: Increase in earthquakes. Plague.

    Heavens: Promised eclipses of sun and moon in one month of Ramadan in the presence of true Mahdi. [It took place in 1894 and 1895]

    Collection of all these signs in and near 14 th Islamic century was not mere coincidence.

    In the wake of above mentioned conditions, following declines in Muslim societies can be seen:
    More interest in worldliness.
    Conditions of Jihad with sword does not exist but leaders are leading them into that. Involvement in open terrorism.
    Leader’ lack of understanding of public needs.
    Wastage of public money.
    Corruption at various levels.
    Leaders like to hear praise. They do not pray with humbleness.

    Allah and Holy Prophet (s.a.w.) had foretold the revival of Islam through Promised Messiah and Mahdi (a.s.) and His Khilafat. Hadrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad, The Promised Messiah, the Mahdi (on whom be peace) was sent for the service to:

    1-Establish pure Unity of God free from all polytheistic ideas.
    2-Strengthen relationship between human and its Creator.
    3-Establish virtue and righteous.
    4-Create faith in God by demonstrating power of God by Heavenly signs.
    5-End religious wars and violence and usher an Era of universal peace.
    6-Unify the humanity under the banner of true Islam.
    7- Purify Islam of extraneous errors and to present and propagate the true picture of Islam.

    Prophets are of two types; Prophets of Jalal [Fast track, Grandeur, like sunshine] and Prophets of Jamal [Cool prestige, slow pace, like moon light]. Holy Prophets Muhammad (s.a.w.) and Moses (a.s.) were Prophets of Jamal. In the Holy Quran, Prophet Muhammad (s.a.w.) is said to be like as Prophet Moses (a.s.), Verily We have sent to you a Messenger, who is witness over you, even as We sent a Messenger to Pharaoh. (ch73:v16)
    [Eventhough sphere of influence was different]

    1400 years after Prophet Moses (a.s.) a Messiah (a.s.) came whose message took 300 years to spread. Messiah of Prophet Muhammad also came after 1400 years of him. He writes:
    Remember that no one will come from sky. Our all opponents who are still alive, they will all die and none of them will see Jesus son of Marry descending from sky. And then their remaining progeny which will stay, will die. And also none of them will see Jesus son of Marry descending from sky. Then progeny of progeny will die and they too will not see son of Marry descending from sky. Then God will put unrest in their hearts that time of victory of cross has vanished and world has come into another colour but son of Marry, Jesus, did not come from sky yet. Then the wise will be suddenly displeased with this belief and the third century from today will still not be completed that those who are waiting for Jesus, Muslims or Christians, will at once leave this false belief with despair and hopelessness. There will be one religion in the world and one leader. I have come to sow a seed. Thus this seed has been sown by my hand. It will grow and sprout and there is none who can stop it.
    [Reference: ruhani khazin, vol, 20]

    In 1908
    When Hazrat Promised Messiah Mahdi (a.s.) passed away, his pious followers, Ahmadiyya Muslims were around 300,000 and were present mainly in India

    In 2016
    By the grace of Allah the Exalted, Ahmadiyya-Muslims are progressing under the Khilafat of Promised Messiah [as this phase of Khilafat too, in latter days was prophesied by the Holy Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be on him), in line with Holy Quran’s mention about Khilafat.]………

    The Ahmadiyya Promised Messiah – the Mahdi (a.s.) was not head of any state so his Ahmadiyya Khilafat has no political objectives. The sole concern of the Ahmadiyya Khilafat is that the people of the world come to recognize their Creator and bow down before the One God.

    ”Currently, Fifth Khalifah Hazrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad (may Allah be his Helper) is heading the Jama’at by the grace of Allah the Exalted, and the Jama’at has reached in each country of the world in millions with the divine peace message of spiritual and moral reforms.

    It is the support of Allah the Exalted which has been making all that spiritual journey possible – a journey through the oppositions and persecutions by individuals, groups and governments.

    All praise to Allah, the Lord of all people (worlds).
