| [qadianism] Re: The Finality of Prophethood - Guidance of the Messenger of Allah(SAW)|
By Abdul Aziz @axe.humboldt.edu
Mr. Irshad: I have referred to four books. I have in my possession the
whole book by Maulana Nanautvi. I have read it many times and I am hundred
percent sure that the intent of Maulana was to prove that 'khatam an
nabiyyeen does mean the last prophet. Please see pages 4,5,18 and 34 of
book 'Tahzeer an Naas'. I have read the the other reference, but not the
whole book, i.e., pages 15 & 16 of 'Asar Ibn e Abbas fee Dafi il Wasaawas'
by Maulana Abdul Hayee Lakhnavi The third reference is 'Sharah Fasusul
Hikam by Maulana AbdurRahman Bin Ahmad Jami, pages 279 & 280. It is in
Arabic. Since my Arabic is not very good I got it translated by a
non-Ahmadi Syrian. The fourth reference is 'Kitab Al yawaqeet wal Jawaher
by Syed Abdul Wahab As Sherani page 38 & 39. Again it is in Arabic but I
got it translated by the same non-Ahmadi. These are just a few of the
references supporting the claim of the Ahmadiyya movement the 'khatam an
nabiyyeen' does not mean the last prophet. Visit the Ahmadiyya web page
www.ahmadiyya.com for more. If any one who lives in the United States and
wants to get these references to satisfy himself, I shall be glad to mail
it at given address.
