Mirza and his 'God'
Who was the God of Mirza?
by Dr Syed Rashid Ali
Allah Al-Mighty, according to Islamic belief, is the Creator of Universe, and everything in it, Omnipotent, Ruler and Owner of all that is there in the Universe and beyond. He is the One and Only. He is the Light of the Heaven and Earth. He is Merciful. He is Majestic. He is All-Knowledgable. He is Eternal. He is The Lord of All the worlds, the Owner of the Day of Judgment. He is above all kinds of failings, weaknesses and faults. Neither slumber nor sleep overtake Him. He neither begets, nor was he begotten. And there is none comparable to Him. He had sent His Messengers and Prophets (Peace and Blessings be upon Them), had sent Revelations to them to guide the mankind on the right path. The Final Messenger in the long line of Prophets was Holy Prophet Muhammad (Peace and Blessings of Allah be upon Him), who brought the Final Message in the form of Holy Quran to guide His creations till the Day of Judgment.
Mirza Ghulam Ahmad Qadiani, the founder of Ahmadiyya Movement, had however a very strange notion of God. Although he claimed to be a Muslim, yet his concept of God was not what is found in Islam, to the extent that one wonders whether it was God who is sending these revelations or satan.
God is like Leopard"Qayyoom-ul-Alameen (Qayyoom is one of the attributes of Allah), is such hugh body, who has uncountable hands and feet and every limb is in such abundance that it cannot be counted, and has endless width and length and like a Leopard, this hugh body also has wires which is extending to all corners of the earth." (Roohani Khazain vol. 3 p.90)
God Praises MirzaYet another revelation, God tells Mirza: " Arabic: NaHmadoka - I praise you." (Haqeeqat-ul-Wahi, Roohani Khazain vol. 22 p. 97)This is something which Allah has not done even for Holy Prophet Muhammad SAAW!!!
God has come down for MirzaAnd yet another one: "I have come down for you." (Haqeeqat-ul-Wahi, Roohani Khazain vol. 22 p. 97)
God will descend in Qadian"Once I had this inspiration that God will descend in Qadian, according to his promise." (Tadhkirah, Collection of Inspirations p.452, 2nd Edition)
True God"True God is the same God who has sent His Messenger in Qadian." (Dafa AlBala, Roohani Khazain vol. 18 p.231)This means that if Mirza is a true Prophet then the God who has sent him in Qadian is a true God, but since Mirza is a false claimant, then the so-called 'God' who is sending all these revelations, and on whose basis Mirza is claiming to be a Prophet, is not a True God, but Satan!!! In the following section it becomes more and more obvious that the this so-called God, was actually Satan who was communicating with Mirza, taking him deeper and deeper into the hell fire with him.
God's Tongue has some sicknessQuran and Hadith confirm that with the advent of Holy Prophet Muhammad SAAW, Prophethood and therefore Revelation has to come to end. Mirza however claimed that he is a Prophet and recipient of revelation from God. Among many other arguments that he put forward to justify his claims, he offered this cheap and slip-shod argument:"Can any intelligent person accept this that in this age God listens but does not say anything. Now after this, the question will arise that why doesn't He speak? Has He developed some sickness on His tongue." (Zamima Braheen-e-Ahmadiyya Part 5, Roohani Khazain vol. 21 p.312)
God will come like a thiefAnother example of a third-rate description of Allah's Attributes, this seems to be quite characteristic of Mirza Ghulam."That God, under whose possession is every particle, where can a person run away from Him. He says that like a thief I will come secretly." (Tajilliyat-e-Illahiyah, Roohani Khazain vol. 20, p. 396)
God admits making mistakesIn one of His revelations to Mirza Ghulam, God admits that He make mistakes."(Arabic) Akhtee wa Aseeb - (translation: I will also make mistakes and will make it right)" (Haqeeqat-ul-Wahi, Roohani Khazain vol. 22 p. 106)The Mirza goes on to explain this revelation in his own words:"The apparent meaning of revelation of God is that I will also make mistakes and sometimes I will make it right. That is, what I will, sometimes I will fulfill it and sometimes I won't." (Haqeeqat-ul-Wahi, Roohani Khazain vol. 22 p. 106, footnote)
God will fast and break the fastIn another revelation God informs Mirza: "I will break the fast and I will also fast." (Haqeeqat-ul-Wahi, Roohani Khazain vol. 22 p. 107)
Heavens and Earth are with Mirza"Earth and Heaven are with you as it is with me." (Haqeeqat-ul-Wahi, Roohani Khazain vol. 22 p.78)
Quran is the talk of Mirza's mouth"Quran is God's book and the talk of my mouth." (Haqeeqat-ul-Wahi, Roohani Khazain vol. 22 p.87)
Mirza is the throne of GodAnother revelation informs Mirza:"You are from me like my Throne." (Haqeeqat-ul-Wahi, Roohani Khazain vol. 22 p.89)
Mirza is God"I saw in one of my vision that I myself am God and believed that I am Him." (Kitab-ul-Bariayh, Roohani Khazain vol. 3 p.103)
God entered Mirza's body"God entered my body ... and in this condition I was saying that WE WANT A NEW SYSTEM AND NEW HEAVEN AND NEW EARTH. Thus initially I created Heaven and Earth in a condensed form in which there was no system or differentiation, then according to God's wish, I created a system and differentiation, and I was watching that I have the power to create this. Then I created the Asmaan-e-Duniya (Lowest Heaven) and said that 'We have beautified the world's heaven with lamps". Then I said that now we will create human from the extract of earth..." (Kitab-ul-Bariyah, Roohani Khazain vol. 3 p. 104-105)
God converts Mirza into a woman"Like Maryam the soul of Eisa was breathed into me and metaphorically I was made pregnant, and after many months, which were not more than 10 months, through that inspiration which is mentioned in the end of Braheen Ahmadiyya part 4 page 556, I was converted from Maryam to Eisa, thus this is how I became Eisa Ibne Maryam." (Kishtee-e-Nooh, Roohani Khazain vol. 19 p. 50)So from Mirza Ibne Chiraagh Bibi, Mirza becomes Maryam, becomes pregnant and 10 months later, deliver himself as Jesus, and then claims that he is Eisa Ibne Maryam, the Promised Messiah. What is he? TWO in ONE!!!!
Menstruation of Mirza and The Child of AllahIn one revelation, Mirza's god informs him:"Babu Ilahi Bukhsh wants to see your menstruation or get information on some filth and impurity but God will show you his rewards, which will continue, and in you there is no menstruation but that child is developing, such a child who is like the Child of Allah." (Tatumma Haqeeqat-ul-Wahi, Roohani Khazain vol. 22 p.581)So Mirza becomes pregnant once again!!!
Wife of God - Mirza's God (satan) performs intercourse with him"On one occasion Hazrat Maseeh Mowood expressed his this condition that state of revelation came upon in such a way that as if he is woman and God has expressed His Power of Virility in him (i.e. performed intercourse), for those who can understand hint is enough." (Islami Qurbani Tract No. 34 By Qazi Yar Mohammed Qadiani)Astaghfirullah, Ma'azAllah. Since the advent of mankind, no one, I repeat no one, has ever expressed such a rotten accusation against Allah, not even false claimants. And what kind of God would repeatedly convert his prophet into a woman. Therefore this so-called 'god' has to be satan!!!
Mirza, the son of god"You are from me, like my own son..... Since in this age, stupid Christians had made Jesus God, therefore Divine expedience wanted that more forceful words are used for this humble self so that the eyes of Christians open and they understand that those words with which they make Jesus as God, there is one in this Ummah also for whom more forceful words of such kinds have been used." (Haqeeqat-ul-Wahi, Roohani Khazain vol. 22 p. 89 + footnote)
Mirza as the Unity of God"You are from me as my UNITY and INDIVIDUALITY." (Haqeeqat-ul-Wahi, Roohani Khazain vol. 22 p.89)
God coming down as the son of MirzaAnother revelation informs Mirza:"We give you the glad tidings of a son, with which the Haq will be manifested, as if God has descended from Earth." (Haqeeqat-ul-Wahi, Roohani Khazain vol. 22 p.99)
It is obvious that Mirza had a very distorted concept of God, which is no where to be found in the two basic Islamic sources - Quran and Hadith. There can be two explanations of this concept.1. Mirza Ghulam was a mental case and suffered from a very complex personality disorder. He had inferiority complex, he had sexual problems, he had inferiority complex which he tried to cover with grandiose claims and he obviously had delusions of grandeur. A psycho-analysis of his writings by an expert can reveal a lot of data about his personality disorder. I hope that some day some expert might do that. So far i have not found a courageous and trustworthy person, but InshaAllah one day I will, then it will reveal the deep secrets of the mind of Mirza which will help us understand more why he did what he did.Mirza never realized when he crossed the line between Islam and Kufr, and ultimately lost his Imaan.
In this context one example is worth mentioning:"Hazrat Saheb (Mirza Ghulam) was born with a twin, and the other baby born with him was a girl, whose name was Jannat. She died a few days later and actually went to jannat (paradise). Mirza Saheb expressed the following comments about the death of this innocent child: 'I believe that God has totally removed this element of womanhood from me'." (Hayat-un-Nabi, vol. 1 p.50 by Yaqoob Ali Saheb Qadiani)Any psychologist will tell you that for a completely balanced human being, both the elements of human forms (masculinity and femininity) are necessary. This statement of Mirza indicates that, this deficiency always lurked in the subconscious mind of Mirza. This, combined with his obsession with sexual weakness, his use of alcohol and opium, his family decline, and his lust for power and money, as admitted in many of his writings, ultimately unhinged him, leading to all those delusions of grandeur, visual and auditory hallucinations, and he thought that God was talking to him. Poor fellow.
Another interesting point to note is that this deficiency of femininity in Mirza's subconscious was probably the reason why Mirza's inspiration kept changing his sex. He claimed to be Maryam and became pregnant with Jesus, then he claimed to have intercourse with god (Ma'azAllah) and then second time became pregnant with the child of god (Ma'azAllah).
2. Mirza was playing in the hands of satan.
At some point in his early life, Mirza indulged in spiritual exercises. It is a well known among those who have experience of such nature, that sooner or later, they experience various kinds of dreams/visions/inspirations. Now if someone is doing such exercises under the supervision of a spiritual master, then his master can control and steer him clear of any satanic or carnal interferences. It is a well known saying among spiritual circles that he who does not have a spiritual guide, his guide is satan. This is what probably happened with Mirza Ghulam Ahmad Qadiani. During the course of his spiritual exercises, he experienced strange phenomena, and since he did not have a spiritual, satan became his guide."Many people are ignorant that in what circumstances and at what stage some dream or inspiration is dependable and in which circumstances it is possible that it is satanic conversation and not from God, and is the creation of his own desires and not God speaking. Remember that satan is the deadly enemy of human being, he wants to kill the humans by variety of ways. and it is possible that one dream is true and still it is from satan and it is possible that some inspiration is true and yet it is from satan, because satan is a big liar, but sometimes he deceives by giving true information so that he can take away the Imaan." (Haqeeqat-ul-Wahi, Roohani Khazain vol. 22 p.3)
Wal 'ayaazo billah. May Allah protect us from satan the accursed one. Ameen.
Wassalam on those who follow the hidayah
