Mr. Abdul Aziz

You say that:

> Mr. Rashid: I reassert that Mirza Sahib never claimed to be a law bearing
> prophet.

Are you telling me that this quotations which I have quoted here is not from the
book of Mirza Ghulam:

"Besides understand this also that what is the Law (Shariat)? He who
described through his revelation some Amr-o-Nahi (orders and prohibitions)
and made a law for his followers, he becomes Law Bearing Prophet. Thus
according to this definition... my revelation also contains order and
prohibitions. For example this inspiration: 'Qul lil mo'mineen yaghuddoo min
absaare him wa tahfezoo furoojahum zzalika azkaa" This is mentioned in
Braheen Ahmadiyya and it contains order adn prohibition as well and 23 years
have passed on this and similarly until now my revelation contains orders as
well as prohibitions. If you say that Law (shariat) is that law which is new
then this is false." (Roohani Khazain vol.17 p. 435 footnote)

I have given the quotation. Let the readers draw their own conclusion.

Excuse me, it is not me who is defining the law-bearing prophet, it is Mirza Ghulam
who is describing. If I have done a wrong translation, please let the readers know,
otherwise I am sure they are intelligent enough to draw the right conclusions.

Mr Aziz! According to your 'non-law bearing prophet' - Mirza Ghulam - more prophets
will come. Let us for the sake of argument accept that. Now look at the following
quotation of Mirza Ghulam:

"Dead are those who did not accept one Holy Messenger. Blessed is the one who had
recognised me. Amongst ALL THE WAYS of Allah I am the last Way and from all His
Lights, I am the Last Light. Unfortunate is the one leaves me, since without me
there is all darkness." (Kishtee-e-Nooh, Roohani Khazain vol 19 p.61)

Would you kindly tell me that what is the meaning of 'LAST' in this quotation? On
the one hand, he and his khulafa led all qadianis to believe that more prophets will
continue coming and yet above quotation says otherwise. Is it not obvious that Mirza
Ghulam stole the title of Finality from Rasoolullah and applied it on himself and
yet you people continue to believe that more 'ghair-shara'ee prophets will continue
to come.

I am sorry I do not remember seeing where Holy Prophet has mentioned the words 'MY
ISSA'. Could you please tell me where are you quoting from.

If what you are saying is true then would you tell me why Mirza Ghulam was
distributing his anti-Jehad literature in those areas as well which were not under
British rule?

Did any of these above mentioned people claim that they have been divinely ordained
or that they are prophet or messiah or mahdi? I am sure that the difference is

Please read these quotations carefully again:

Please read the above quotes from the books of Mirza Ghulam. No where it says or
even implied that this is just a temporary suspension. He is quite absolute in his
abrogation of Jehad for ever.

Mr Aziz. It is not what Ahmadis believe, it is what Mirza Ghulam has said that is
important. As a follower of Mirza, you have to believe in and bear the
responsibility for whatever he has written or said or advertised, irrespective of
whether you have read it or not. Mirza Ghulam has said it but if you believe
otherwise, then it is your problem. You should ask your khalifa why he has led you
to believe otherwise.
