False Prophecies of a False Prophet
Mirza Ghulam Qadiani's predictions on Son to a Follower
(All references are from Qadiani books)
Manzoor Muhammad, one of the close followers of Mirza Ghulam, informed him
that his wife had conceived. Upon hearing this, Mirza Ghulam stood
up and announced:
"We saw in a dream that a son was born to Manzoor Muhammad. We
asked about his name. The state of the dream changed into the state
of revelation. It was said: 'Bashir-ud-Daula' (the harbinger
of kingdom). But, I do not know what is meant by Manzoor Muhammad."
(Review of Religions, P. 122, March 1906)
Obviously, Mirza Ghulam was learning from his prior failed attempts at making
prophecies. By suggesting that 'Manzoor Muhammad' would have been another
individual, he had left room to save face. However,
plan was to expose Mirza Ghulam's untruthfulness once more and give his followers
another sign that they had been diverted from the right path. Only
four months later, Mirza Ghulam once again announced:
"We have been informed that it is this same Manzoor Muhammad specified in
the revelation. A son will be born to him from his current wife and he will
be named 'Bashir-ud-Daula'. It is possible that the boy is not
born of this pregnancy but from the next. It is, however, inevitable
that he will be born, as he is the sign of God..."
(Review of Religions, June1906)
"I received revelation that ... Manzoor Muhammad and his wife shall have
a son whose name shall be 'Bahir-ud-Daula'."
(Roohany Khazaen, Vol. 22, P. 103)
Once again, Mirza Ghulam had tried to make his prophecy failure proof by
suggesting that the boy might be born in a subsequent pregnancy. However,
he planned and Allah(SWT) also planned,
and Allah(SWT) is the best of planners.
Unknowingly, Mirza Ghulam had planted the seed which would expose his
falsehood once more.
In July 1906, Manzoor Muhammad's wife gave birth to a daughter.
Stubbornly, Mirza Ghulam prophecised:
"Manzoor Muhammad's wife shall not die unless she gives birth to this
noble son and until the prophecy is fulfilled."
(Review of Religions, June 1907)
Once again, he was shown to be fabricating lies against
Allah(SWT). Indeed, Manzoor
Muhammad's wife never conceived again and died without ever delivering the
prophecised son. Allah(SWT) had
made this another sign of Mirza Ghulam's false claims for those who really
believe. But, did most Qadianis revert back to Islam? No! They
had closed their minds and
Allah(SWT) sealed their hearts for
their arrogance. The Qadiani leadership instead declared:
"God knows when and how will this prophecy come true as his holiness had
given the news of its fulfillment through Manzoor Muhammad's wife who has
(Al-Bushra, Vol. 2, P. 116)
Satan is always at work. Isn't it sad
to see unfortunate people abandon faith, arrogantly refute the signs sent
to them by Allah(SWT), and try to
explain away the repeated failures of Mirza Ghulam?
