Books Section > Clear Evidence re Ahmadiyyah by Hafiz Sher Muhammad > The Signs Relating to the ‘Mahdi’ and ‘Promised Messiah’ and their Fulfilment in Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad Qadiani


The Signs Relating to the ‘Mahdi’ and ‘Promised Messiah’ and their Fulfilment in Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad Qadiani:

Let us examine as to whether the special features and signs relating the appearance of ‘Mahdi’ and ‘The Promised Messiah’ in the Muslim Ummah [Nation] as foretold by the Holy Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) are in fact fulfilled in the person of Mirza Ghulam Ahmad or not? Out of a quite large number, for the sake of brevity, we mention only a few salient signs -- some pertaining to this earth and others to the skies -- fulfilment whereof is not in the control of any human being by any stretch of imagination and as such not within the power, of any claimant to ‘Mahdi’ or ‘Promised Messiah’. These are:

1. The Time of the Advent of Mahdi:

(a) Hazeefa bin Yamman reports that the Holy Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said, "1240 years would not have passed over the Hijrah (migration from Mecca to Madina) that Allah will send the Mahdi. (An-Najam-us-Saqib, Vol. 2, p. 209)

(b) Hazrat Shah Nemat Ullah Wali (mercy of Allah be on him) referring to the words of Hadith (Kumto-Kauzan Maklifiyan) writes in one of his verses that the lmam Mahdi will appear about the Islamic year 1279, as according to the ‘Jamal’ calculation the number for the words of the said Hadith work out to 1279.

(c) Hazrat Shah Wali Ullah Dehlvi, mercy of Allah be on him, calculated the year of appearance of the Mahdi as the year 1268 of Islamic era. His calculation is based on the ‘Jamal’ Calculation of the words ‘Chiragh-e-Deen.’ (Hajajul Karamah, p. 394)

(d) Hafiz Barkhurdar, a well known scholar of (Fiqah) Jurisprudence and Hadith writes that 300 years over a thousand years will pass, then Mahdi will appear (AN WAA').

Evidently, the above quotations refer to the birth of Mahdi in the thirteenth Century Hijrah, and also about his claim of being Mahdi. This prophecy of the Hadith foretold fourteen hundred years ago were fulfilled in the person of Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad Sahib who was born in the year 1250 Hijrah and who claimed to be the Mahdi in the year 1300 Hijrah.

2. The Place of Mahdi's Appearance:

Mahdi will appear in India (Hind).

(a) Hazrat Ans (Allah be pleased with him) reported, "I heard from my friend and Master, the Holy Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) and said the (Qiyyamat) hour will not come till Allah has raised two Jamaat's (groups) on whom the fire of Hell will be forbidden (Haram). One group will side with the Mahdi, whose name will be Ahmad, in jihad in Hind (India) and one group will be with the Isa [Jesus] son of Mary." Imam Bukhari has reported this in his book. (An-Najam-us-Saqib, Vol. 2, footnotes on page 41)

(b) Hazrat Sheikh Fareed-ud-Deen Attar, of blessed memory, writes:

In this verse the word ‘Hindvi,’ if interpreted as the proper noun for ‘Hind’ (India) then it refers to the appearance of Promised Messiah in India and will be translated as saying "His Hindi became the well-known Messiah, whose name has been made Mubbashar by Allah" -- but if the word ‘Hindvi’ is treated as adopted in Persian from the Arabic word ‘Hind’ meaning slave (Ghulam in Persian or Urdu) will mean ‘His Slave (Ghulam) became the well known Messiah .... Since this verse was written in the praise of Holy Prophet Muhammad whose other name was Ahmad (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) it refers to the name of Hazrat Mirza Sahib, ‘Ghulam Ahmad,’ meaning ‘Slave of Ahmad.’

Apparently while the above quoted Hadith refers to the place of the advent of the Mahdi and Promised Messiah being in India (Hind), the verse of Attar refers to both India and/or the name of the Promised Messiah being Ghulam Ahmad.

3. Name of the Town of the Promised Messiah Foretold:

(a) Sheikh Ali Hamza Bin Ali Malik-ut-Toosi, writes in ‘Jawahir-ul-Asrar,’ it is reported in Arbain that Mahdi will appear in a town called ‘Kadea,’ the Holy Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said that Mahdi will appear in a town called ‘Kadea,’ the Holy Prophet Muhammad said people from distant lands (countries) will gather around him and their number in the beginning will be equal to the number of those who were in the battle of Badar and he will have a printed book wherein the names of these persons, their cities and their good qualities would be noted.

(b) Hazrat Khawaja Ghulam Fareed of Chachran of blessed memory writes in ‘Ishaarat-e-Fareedi’ (Vol. 3, p. 70) the Holy Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said that Mahdi will appear in a village called ‘Kadea.’

Now the above two quotations not only tell the name of the village of the Promised Messiah but the quotation of (a) above also refers to a book containing 313 names [Anjam-e-Atham by Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad Sahib]. The name of the village being a proper noun is in fact a ‘Muarrab’ from Kadian.

Arabic words are of two kinds by their use:

(1) Maurrab -- those which are adopted in Arabic from other languages, e.g., China in Arabic is ‘Seen,’ Japan is ‘Yaban,’ Italy is ‘El Italiah,’ England is ‘Inkaltra,’ London is ‘Londra,’ etc. Just like that Kadea is Maurrab of ‘Qadian.’

(2) Muajjam -- on the other hand are Arabic words adopted in other languages with a distortion of form. In India Ghulam Muhammad is changed to ‘Gamma’ – Meraj-ud-Din to ‘Mahaja’, Fazal-ud-Din to ‘Phajja,’ Ahmad to ‘Ahman,’ etc. In the Punjabi (Language of Punjab) even the names of towns are distorted, e.g., Batala is called ‘Vatala,’ Mustafa Pur is ‘Mustrapur,’ Hafizaabad is ‘Havejanbad,’ etc. Similarly, Qadian is called ‘Kadee’ which is nearer ‘Kadea.’
