Tributes Paid to Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad Sahib of Qadian:
(Part 3 of 4)

11. Hazrat Sayyid Ashhad-ud-Din ‘Jhanday walay’:

This saint of Hyderabad (Sindh, Pakistan) was a contemporary of Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad Sahib. He wrote a letter to Hazrat Mirza as follows:

"I saw the Holy Prophet Muhammad in a vision. I entreated him, O Messenger of God, is this man who claims to be the Promised Messiah, a liar and impostor, or truthful? The Holy Prophet replied, ‘He is truthful and has come from God.’ So I then understood that you are right. After this, we shall not have any doubts concerning you."

(Reproduced by Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad
in his book Zameema Anjam Atham, p. 40)

12. Hazrat Khawaja Ghulam Farid of Chachran:
The Khawaja was also a contemporary of Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad Sahib, and is today a famous Muslim saint of Pakistan. He told his followers:

"Mirza Ghulam Ahmad Qadiani is also right, and he is right and truthful in his affair. Day and night he is engrossed in the service of God Almighty. He has given his life for the progress of Islam and raising aloft the cause of the Faith. I can see nothing wrong or bad in him at all. If he has claimed to be the Mahdi and Messiah, that too is among the things which are permissible."

(Isharat-i Faridi, compilation of the talks of
Khawaja Ghulam Farid, by his son, p. 179)

13. Maulavi Irshad Ali of Nagpur:
Joining Islam again after repenting from his conversion to Christianity, he wrote the following in reply to a Christian missionary:

"The Christian missionary Safdur Ali has challenged me to a debate with him on the truth of Islam and Christianity. . . . But I can ask him that if he is so confident about his arguments and the truth of Christianity, where was he when Maulavi Ghulam Ahmad Qadiani stood in the field of debate like a brave lion and challenged him. This challenge had such an effect on you people that no Christian missionary dare confront him [Mirza Ghulam Ahmad Sahib]."

(Magazine Dastkari, Amritsar, 18 June 1899)

14. Allama Dr. Sir Muhammad Iqbal:
The renowned Muslim philosopher and poet of the Indian sub-continent published a paper in 1900 in The Indian Antiquary, a learned journal of oriental research, entitled The Doctrine of Absolute Unity as expounded by Abdul Karim Jilani. The paper deals with the metaphysical thought of this saint (d. circa 1408 C.E.) as expounded in his classic work Al-Insan al-Kamil. While commenting on Jilani’s philosophy, Iqbal writes:

"It will appear at once how strikingly the author has anticipated the chief phase of the Hegelian Dialectic and how greatly he has emphasised the Doctrine of the Logos --- a doctrine which has always found favour with almost all the profound thinkers of Islam, and in recent times has been readvocated by M. Ghulam Ahmad of Qadian, probably the profoundest theologian among modern Indian Muhammadans."

(The Indian Antiquary, vol. xxix, September 1900, p. 239.

15. Aslam Khan Baloch:
When the famous Muslim journalist Mr Muhammad Aslam Khan Baloch, editor of Mu’in-ul-Muslimeen of Amritsar, visited Qadian in 1913 during the time of Hazrat Maulana Nur-ud-Din (Head of the Ahmadiyya Movement after the Founder’s death), he recorded his impressions as follows:

"The great catastrophes befalling the world of Islam compelled me to go to Qadian to see whether the Ahmadi Jama’at, which for so long has been claiming that it shall conquer the world for Islam by means of a literary and missionary struggle, is actually capable of doing so. . . . What I saw in Ahmadi Qadian was pure and sincere service of the One God, and wherever one’s sight turned there was the Quran. In short, I found the Ahmadi Jama’at of Qadian in a practical sense to be true to a very great extent in its claim that it can spread Islam in the world in a peaceful way by means of preaching and propagation, and that it is a Jama’at which in today’s world is a true follower of the Quran, purely for the sake of God, and a lover of Islam. If all the Muslims of the world, especially India, help them practically in the propagation of Islam in Europe, then certainly the European continent would light up with the rays of the sun of Islam, and this blood-thirsty Christianity, which, to satisfy the appetites of its materialistic disciples, is bent upon destroying Muslim countries and effacing Islam from the world, would face manifest defeat by this means."

(From Ahmadiyya newspaper Badr, 13 March 1913)
