[qadianism] Re: Two Types of Propethood
By Abdul Aziz @axe.humboldt.edu

Mr. McKloskey: Please tell me why are you along with all non-Ahmadi
Muslims waiting for Issa (AS) to descend from heaven? According to you
all that is needed for the spiritual purity and guidance of Muslims has
already been
provided. (2). Prophet Muhammad (SAS) said that in later days, there will
Quran but in words only (no action). There will be ulema but they would be
the worst human beings on the face of the earth. Could you please tell me
if these prophesies of Prophet Muhammad (SAS) apply today or not? Are the
so called ulema not inciting one Muslim against the other? Is Quran not
left only in words? Are Muslims following Quran? Please think again. Allah
sends warners when sin spreads far and wide in the world. That warner,
according to Quran, is always jeered, laughed at and persecuted? Is this
not happening to the person of Mirza Sahib and his followers. I suggest
that, in cognito, you visit an Ahmadiyya mosque and see how energetically
they are trying to spread Islam (The Islam revealed to Prophet Muhammad
(SAS) and not as interpretted by the non-Ahmadi ulema). Your visit is a
must if you want to be an honest critic of Ahmadiyyat. The Prophet
said,"Whem my Issa (AS) comes he will bring back the belief even if it has
gone to far off stars". In just one hadith the Prophet called Issa (AS)
nabi Allah four times. Wassalaam.
