The False Prophecies of a False Prophet

Mirza Ghulam Qadiani’s False Predictions

Mirza Ghulam Qadiani, the founder of Qadianism (Ahmadiyyat), wrote in his books:

  • “To Judge my truthfulness or lies, there is no better test than my prophecies.”
    (Roohany Khazaen, Vol. 19, P. 288)
  • “Let it be known to unbelieving persons that my truthfulness or falsehood will be judged by my prophecies.  There is no other touchstone for it.”
    (Pamphlet, 10th July 1888; Aina-e-Kamalat-i-Islam, P. 288)
  • “I do not speak of my volition.  Indeed, that is nothing but revelation which is revealed.”
    (Tabligh-e-Risalat, Vol. 5, P. 58)
  • Torah and Quran have designated Prophecies as the only big proof of Prophethood.”
    (Roohany Khazaen, Vol. 12, P. 111)
  • “It is not possible that the prophecies of Prophets are delayed.”
    (Roohany Khazaen, Vol. 19, P. 5)
  • “To turn out a liar in his own prophecy is biggest disgrace of disgraces.”
    (Roohany Khazaen, Vol. 15, P. 382)

Allow us to examine a few of the better known prophecies of the person who called himself a Prophet, Mehdi, and the Promised Messiah.  According to Mirza Ghulam himself, even if only one prophecy has not come to pass, we should view him a liar and an impostor.  Let’s count his most famous prophecies which did not come to pass:

  • Prophecies and Mubahala Concerning Mr. Abdullah Khan Atham
    Mirza Ghulam Qadiani was badly humiliated by Mr. A.K. Atham, a Christian, in a debate. Mirza Ghulam’s repeated prophecies regarding a miserable death for Mr. Atham did not come to pass.
  • Prophecy concerning Multiple Marriages and many Children
    “Indeed God has given me the good news that I shall have numerous children from blessed women, whom I shall marry after this revelation.”
    (Tabligh-i-Risalat, Vol. 5, P. 58)

    “In February 1886, I made a declaration after receiving revelation from God that He gave me good news of marriages after this declaration and soon I shall marry women of good omen and virtue and to me will be born children from them.”
    (Tabligh-i-Risalat, Vol. 1, P. 89)

    Mirza Ghulam made this statement when he was 46 years old.  The fact is that he did not marry anyone after this prophecy.

  • Prophecies Regarding Marriage to Mohammadi Begum
    Mirza Ghulam’s repeated assertions that his marriage to Mohammadi Begum was ordained by God never came to pass.  Additionally, none of the individuals he had threatened with death from God died as he had predicted.
  • Prophecies Regarding the birth of Sons to his wife
    Mirza Ghulam made multiple prophecies regarding birth of sons to his wife.  They all failed.
  • Prophecy about Marriage to a Virgin and a Widow
    Mirza Ghulam has written:

    “It is God’s intention that He will bring two ladies in my wedlock.  One will be virgin and the other widow. Therefore, this inspiration that is related to Bikr (virgin), it has been fulfilled and, presently by the grace of God, I have four sons from this wife.  I am still waiting for the fulfillment of the inspiration regarding widow.”
    (Roohany Khazaen, Vol. 15, P. 201)

    Mirza Ghulam never married a widow.

  • Prophecies Regarding “A Spark of Light of Allah”
    Mirza Ghulam’s claim that a new born boy would grow up to become the savior of the humanity failed, when the young boy died of an illness.
  • Prophecies Concerning the Plague and Qadian
    Mirza Ghulam feared Cholera very much and declared it to be one of his signs.  He predicted that the plague that became rampant in Punjab will not enter Qadian, the dwelling place of God’s prophet (himself)!  However, not only did the plague spread to Qadian, it also took the life of several people in Mirza Ghulam’s own house.
  • Prophecies Concerning Birth of a Son to a Follower
    Mirza Ghulam’s prophecies concerning the birth of a son to one of his followers, Manzoor Muhammad, did not materialize.
  • Prophecies and Mubahala Concerning Dr. Abdul Hakim
    Mirza Ghulam Qadiani engaged in a discussion with a Muslim Doctor by the name of Abdul Hakim.  During this discussion, the Doctor called Mirza a Liar and challenged him to a debate.  Instead of accepting the debate, Mirza Ghulam prophecised a miserable death for Dr. Hakim.  These predictions also failed and proved to be the inventions of a lost soul and a pretender.
  • Prophecy Concerning Long Life
    Mirza Ghulam declared to have received wahi (revelation) concerning his lifespan:

    “Enemies wish for my death and prophecise about it.  God has, however, given me the good news that I shall live for eighty (80) years or more.”
    (Roohany Khazaen, Vol. 19, P. 239; Mawahib-ur-Rahman, P. 21)

    Mirza Ghulam Qadiani died when he was sixty eight (68) years old.

  • Prophecy Concerning his Death in a Holy City
    Mirza Ghulam had stated:

    “I will die either in Mekkah or Medina.”
    (Tadhkira, P. 591)

    Mirza Ghulam did not ever see Mekkah or Medina.  He died in the city of Lahor, Pakistan; his body was moved and burried in Qadian.

On this brief page, we have presented dozens of prophecies Mirza Ghulam had falsely attributed to Allah(SWT).


Who doth more wrong than those who invent a lie against Allah? They will be turned back to the presence of their Lord, and the witnesses will say, “These are the ones who lied against their Lord! Behold! the Curse of Allah is on those who do wrong!-
Those who would hinder (men) from the path of Allah and would seek in it something crooked: these were they who denied the Hereafter!

(The Holy Quran, Hud, 11:18-19)

Even according to the standards set by the pretender Mirza, we should have no doubt that he was an impostor and a false claimant to prophethood.  Allah(SWT), time and time again, has proved Mirza Ghulam’s falsehood to those who seek guidance.

Evil as an example are people who reject Our signs and wrong their own souls.
(The Holy Quran, Al-Araf, 7:177)

These are proofs for people who believe in and fear Allah(SWT): They are indisputable signs of the falsehood of the Qadiani leadership.
