The Argument of Last Mujaddid


The coming of Prophets and other Elects of Allah for the guidance of mankind is a perennial theme in spiritual history. The Holy Qur’an says that such servants of Allah have always been raised among all communities and every people have had their own divinely-guided souls. “And for every people there is a Messenger” (10:48, 13:08; 16:37). A well known tradition from the Holy Prophet of Islam (sa) indicates that hundreds of thousands of Messengers have passed away before his own advent.   

As the Holy Prophet Muhammad (sa) was himself a chain in the grand Divine scheme of guided souls leading common people in the path of Allah, he gave the glad tiding of the continuity of divine revelations and the coming of other Elects of Allah in future. That is why the Promised Messiah (as) wrote in his book Izala Auham that the door of coming of Messiahs will remain open and never close. He further said:

“I am the claimer of Promised Messiah, and this is not the only claim of mine, that only I am the one and the last Promised Messiah. Hence, according to me it is possible that after my age (time period) ten thousands (10,000) Promised Messiahs shall come. But for this age (time period) I am the Promised Messiah.”

He then, writes:

 It is also evident that this view is not mine alone. The ‘mirror images’ of the Massih could be several persons’- This is also not just a personal opinion of mine. This is actually the essence of the great prophetic traditions in this regard. There could be around 30 Dajjals till the Day of Judgement. Thus 30 Dajjals might appear in the world. Based on the prophecy “Li Kulli Dajjalin Isa”, atleast 30 Massihs should come. Due to these descriptions, the other Massihs will make an appearance at some other time. All this is perfectly possible”.   (Izala Auham, pg.197)

Today, Ahmadis have completely moved away from the real spiritual path of Islam which anticipates the coming of Elects of Allah in every age. Forget about 10,000 Massihs or even the comparatively smaller figure 30 Massihs, mentioned by the Promised Massih Hadhrat Ahmad (as), his own so-said Jamaat has discarded his teachings by the way side. They do not even expect a single Massih to come in their midst now as they feel they have an elected Khilafat system which is designed to last till the Day of Judgement in the fashion of the Christian Khilafat. Already, they have declared the Promised Massih (as) as the Last Mujaddid before the Day of Judgement. Such thinking is in line with the mentality of other peoples of the past who also thought that after their Prophet, no one will come in future!


In the aftermath of the Fifth Khalifa’s recent speech on Last Mujaddid, Khalifatullah Hadhrat Munir Ahmad Azim Sahib reflected on this issue in the light of Qur’anic wisdom:

Allah says in the Holy Quran:

“And certainly Yusuf came to you before with clear arguments, but you ever remained in doubt as to what he brought; until when he died, you said: Allah will never raise a Messenger after him. Thus does Allah cause him to err who is extravagant, a doubter.”

“Those who dispute concerning the revelations of Allah without any authority that He has given them; greatly hated is it by Allah and by-those who believe. Thus does Allah set a seal over the heart of every proud, haughty one.” (Quran 40: 35-36)

These verses show clearly that the supposition that there shall be no prophets to come for the future generations is verily absolutely false. Only the transgressors and the doubters affirm this (that they shall no prophet to come from Allah in the future; that the last prophet to come was the final prophet or messiah and none shall come from Allah after him). These people have serious doubts on the blessings and favours of God and they refuse to believe in the spiritual favours Allah readily sends to them once man deviates from the right path and seems to think that he is of no need of a reformer or prophet of Allah to guide him back on the right path.

Indeed the evil spirit whispers such falsehood in his ears, that man then teaches these evil teachings to his children, and in this manner, generation over generation come to believe in this falsehood, until the people of reasoning (the men of understanding) puts forward the ever needed questions: When shall someone from Allah come for the revival of the Divine Message? This is especially true for Islam, which with the advent of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (pubh) became a universal religion and the perfect of teachings to be revived again and again till the Day of Judgement by the Lieutenants of Allah.

There are also such transgressors and doubters who dispute over the signs of God without solid arguments. Such hearts are corrupted hearts, touched to a severe degree by the evil spirit. The evil spirit uses such so-called commanders of people to lead the people astray, and he renders beautiful the powers and attraction of this world to their eyes, so much so that these commanders become avid of this world, despite that they intrinsically know that Allah’s truth is the absolute truth, but they struggle with all their might to teach to the people the contrary and use the teachings of prophets to their own evil intent.

This is exactly what Mirza Masroor Ahmad Sahib, the fifth Khalifatul-Massih of the Ahmadiyya Community is doing!Trying to usurp the divine power which rightfully belongs to Allah and His Messenger and divert it to his own temporal advantage”.

Holy Qur'an, Chapter 105: Al-Fil
1. In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful. 2. Have you not seen how your Lord dealt with the companions (i.e., owners) of the elephant? 3. Did He not make their treacherous plan go astray? 4. And He sent against them Birds in flocks, 5. Striking them with stones of hard-baked clay. 6. Then did He make them like an empty field of stalks and straw, (of which the crops) has been eaten up.
The Fate of Hubris: A Lesson from History
This Surah was revealed at Mecca in the early days of the prophethood of Hazrat Muhammad (pbuh). It speaks about the event that took place in the year of the birth of the Holy Prophet (saws), around the year 570 of the Christian calendar.Yemen at that time was under the control of the Abyssinians who were Christians and the latter had driven out the Jewish government that was in power at that time. Abraha Al-Ashram was the governor or Viceroy of Abyssinia. The thirst for power led him to self-proclaim himself king…

Significance of Surah Al Fatiha

... I have chosen to talk/explain today on a never-ending subject. I can say that if the ocean was ink and all trees in this world and the universe were pens and the sky and earth were papers, therefore all these would have come to an end but not the commentary of the Surah Al-Fatiha. This is because of the high importance of this chapter in the life of a believer, and this chapter is the first chapter of the Holy Quran. It is so important that one has to start with the Surah Al-Fatiha when he begins his prayer (Namaz/Salat). And to start supplications (duahs) to Allah, the Surah Al-Fatiha needs to be recited first. This is because of the nature of its greatness as a chapter and duah. In whatever situation a person may be, be it a difficulty, an illness or a state of suffering or any other problems he finds himself in, therefore he needs to recite the Surah Al-Fatiha.
By the grace of Allah, today 22nd August 2014, I have thought about explaining a bit again on this very important chap…
