Mirza Ghulam Qadiani's Unfulfilled Prophecies
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 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 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 Page 3 of 16

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 Prophecy Concerning his Death in a Holy City

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.

Mirza Ghulam Qadiani's predictions on Abdullah Khan Atham
(All references are from Qadiani books) To support his claim of being the Promised Messiah, Mirza Ghulam often engaged in debates with little known Christians. In 1893, Mirza Ghulam challenged Mr. Abdullah Khan Atham, a retired deputy commissioner and a Christian, to a debate to prove the truthfulness of either religion. In his challenge to Mr. Atham, Mirza Ghulam boasted: "I am ready for this Holy War." (Roohany Khazaen, Vol. 6, P. 65) Mirza Ghulam Qadiani had earlier stated: "I agree that if the signs of my truthfulness are not shown, I will admit that I am not from God and will give up Islamic faith or will surrender half of my wealth for propagation of Christianity." (Roohany Khazaen, Vol. 6, P. 48-49) "I swear upon God that God told me 'Whatever was given to the Messiah (Jesus) has been given to you and you are the Promised Messiah'." (Roohany Khazaen, Vol. 6, P. 49) The debate between Mirza Ghulam and Mr. Atham commenced on May 22, 1893 and went on till June 5, 1893. Toward the end of the debate, Christians brought one blind, one deaf, and one paralyzed individual to the debate and challenged Mirza Ghulam to cure them as Jesus(pbuh) had done! Naturally, Mirza was not able to cure any of them. (Roohany Khazaen, Vol. 6, P. 291) Mirza Ghulam Qadiani offered such a weak argument against Mr. Atham and was so badly humiliated that both Muslims and Christians were openly admitting the failure of Mirza to prove the truthfulness of Islam. (Roohany Khazaen, Vol. 9, P. 25) Several Qadianis were even reported to have converted to Christianity, as the result of Mirza Ghulam's loss. (Roohany Khazaen, Vol. 9, P. 28, footnote) Having been so badly defeated, Mirza Ghulam resorted to one of his old tricks. On June 5, 1893, he announced that the night before he has received a Grand Prophecy from Allah(SWT). He said: "When I humbly entreated and implored God Almighty and prayed to Him to show me the details of the matter, He indicated to me that the liar will die within 15 months (before September 5, 1894), provided he does not return to the truth (Islam); and he who is on the truth and believes in true God, his honor will be restored and when this prophecy is fulfilled some blind man will start seeing, paralyzed start walking, and deaf start hearing. I admit that if this prophecy proves to be False, I am prepared for every punishment. My face should be blackened and I should be hanged. I swear by the Mighty Allah that what I have said will happen. It must happen. It is possible that the earth may be changed for another earth and the sky may be replaced by another sky, but it is not possible for God's word to Page 5 of 16

Prophecies of Mirza Ghulam Ahmad Qadiani from his own writings

change -- prepare for me a cross if my falsehood is exposed and curse me more than the Satans and the evil persons are cursed." (Roohany Khazaen, Vol. 6, P. 292-293; Jang-i-Maqaddas, P. 188) We need to keep in mind that Mr. Atham was already sixty six (66) years old, at the time of this prophecy. During the next 10 months, several attempts on Mr. Atham's life were made: someone fired a shot at him, a cobra was found in his house, people tried to break the door to his bedroom, etc. (Roohany Khazaen, Vol. 13, P. 163) Following all these attempts on his life, Mr. Atham was given continuous police protection and, to throw off the would be assassins, he changed his residence several times. As the promised deadline drew closer, Mirza Ghulam Qadiani and his followers grew more and more anxious. Mirza even resorted to distributing candies among children, asking them to pray for Atham's death (What manner of a prophet was he?)! On August 22, 1894, in a letter to one of his closest associates, Mirza Ghulam stated: "Respected brother Rustam Ali, Peace, God's mercy and blessing on you. Your esteemed letter and card have reached me through the mail. Only a few days are now left for the fulfillment of the grand prophecy. We pray that God might save his servants from confusion and trial. The person in question (Abdullah Atham) is currently in Ferozpur (a city in India) and is still hale and healthy. May Allah save His weak servants from distraction. Amen! Amen! I am fine. Please also ask Moulvi Sahib to join us in our prayer (that Mr. Atham should die). Salam; Ghulam Ahmad from Qadian." (Maktubat-e-Ahmadiah, Vol. 5, No. 3, P. 128, by Yaqub Ali of Qadian) So much for Mr. Atham's attempt to try to live in hiding. Qadianis were keeping track of his whereabouts; fortunately, Mr. Atham was under 24 hour police protection. Bashir Ahmad, a son and a very close supporter of Mirza Ghulam, has recorded the following: "Miyan Abdullah Sinnuari has reported to me that when only one day was left for the expiration of the prophecy (September 4, 1894), the Promised Messiah (Mirza Ghulam) summoned Miyan Hamdi Ali and I and ordered us to take a particular number of beans and recite on them a particular chapter of the Holy Quran so many times. I have forgotten the verse, but I remember it was a short surah, probably as short as "Al-Fil". We spent the entire night reciting the chapter and, after completing the assignment, we took the beans to His Holiness (Mirza Ghulam). He lead us to the northern part of Qadian and told us: 'I shall soon throw these beans in a deserted well. When I throw these, do not look behind but turn back on your heels and hasten back home.' He did so and we ran back home without looking behind." (Sirat-ul-Mahdi, Vol. I, P.159/178, by Bashir Ahmad Qadiani) Yet, nothing happened! Mirza Ghulam had another prophecy:

Page 6 of 16

Prophecies of Mirza Ghulam Ahmad Qadiani from his own writings

God has told me that "he (Mr. Atham) will die soon; if not, then the sun on the last day of the 15th month (September 5, 1894) will not set until Atham dies." (Reported in Al-Hakam Qadiani Newspaper, September 7, 1923) Yaqub Ali Qadiani in his book titled the Life of the Promised Messiah recounted: "When the last day of the period appointed for Atham dawned, the faces of the Qadianis were pale white and their hearts were perturbed. Some of us had laid bets with the opponents on the death of Abdullah Atham. A sense of dismay and depression prevailed...." (Sirat-ul-Mehdi, P. 7) The sun set and nothing, again! Mirza Ghulam gathered people in a mosque and reassured them that nothing was lost. He prophecised that "The sun will not rise and Atham will be dead." He ordered them to pray all night asking for the death of Atham.(Raees-e-Qadian, Vol. 2, P. 172). That night voices were heard from every Qadiani house in town, so that the "cries and wails reached such a pitch that even the opponents felt afraid." (Sirat-ul-Mehdi, P. 7) Yet, the sun rose and Mr. Atham had not died! Many Qadianis were agitated by these failed prophecies, some even gave up on their faith. Mirza Ghulam, once again, gathered his remaining supporters and gave them a sermon on the meaning of tests and trials. Some accepted his explanation and forgot the failure of the prophecies he had attributed to Allah(SWT). On the other hand, the Christians celebrated the failure of Mirza Ghulam in Amristar (a city in India) and carried Mr. Atham around in a victory march. To them, Mirza Ghulam's loss equated the loss of Islam. (Al-Hukam of Qadian, September 7, 1923, by Rahim Buksh Qadiani) In a last attempt to save face, Mirza Ghulam and some of his close associates suggested that, since the prophecies had not come to pass, Mr. Atham must have turned his back on Christianity and become a Muslim! (Roohany Khazaen, Vol. 9, P. 2) Apparently, this self-proclaimed Prophet did not think much of his own followers! Did he expect his followers to forget that Allah(SWT) will not go back on His promise to his prophet? Did he even expect them to forget his own words: "It is possible that heaven and earth may heavens might be shaken from their place but the promise of God is unshakable." (Jang-i-Muqaddas, P. 2) In an announcement published in the newspaper Wadadar on September 15, 1894, Mr Atham declared: "I invite your attention to the prophecy of Ghulam Ahmad about my death. I inform you that, by the grace of God, I am safe and sound. I have heard Ghulam Ahmad alleging that I have turned my back on Christianity. I proclaim that this is a lie. I was a Christian and I ever remained a Christian and I thank God that He made me a Christian..." (Wafadar, Lahor, September 15, 1894 - not a Qadiani paper) Page 7 of 16

Prophecies of Mirza Ghulam Ahmad Qadiani from his own writings

Muhammad Ali Khan, the son-in-law of Mirza Ghulam, in a letter to Mirza Ghulam expressed his dismay and concern for the clear loss and failure of all the prophecies: "Respected Maulana, May God keep you safe! Peace and Mercy of Allah on you. Today, is the 7th of September, while the last day of the fulfillment of the grand prophecy was the 5th of September. I shall not repeat the words of the prophecy. I shall, however, mention the words of your revelation - 'Now I promise before God that if my prophecy is proved to be a false one and the liar does not die within the period of fifteen months and is not plunged into Hell, I am prepared for my punishment By God, it will so happen. The earth and the heavens might be shaken from their place but the promise of God is unshakable.' Was this prophecy fulfilled according to Mirza Sahib's description? No - Never. Abdullah Atham is safe, sound, and alive and is not punished by dead to be flung into Hell. I do not consider any other interpretation is possible for this prophecy than what it clearly meant to be. It, however, sounds very ugly that every prophecy is misunderstood and had to be elaborately interpreted to be rightly understood. At the birth of a child, for instance, it was named Bashir (harbinger of good tidings) for good omen, and when it died, you said the matter was misunderstood. As for the prophecy concerning Atham, it has given birth to the very master piece of distortion and interpretation." (Aina-e-Haq Numa, P. 100-101, Published by Yaqub Ali Qadiani) Once more, let's review the failed prophecies which Mirza Ghulam attributed to Allah(SWT), in regard to Mr. Atham:
• • • • • •

Mr. Atham will accept Islam; Mirza Ghulam has been given all the capabilities given to Jesus(pbuh); Mr. Atham will die by September 5, 1894; A blind man will start seeing, a paralyzed person will start walking, and deaf individual will start hearing; The sun on the last day of the 15th month (September 5, 1894) will not set until Atham dies; The sun will not rise and Atham will be dead.

It is unfortunate that Mirza Ghulam has already died. If he were alive now in an Islamic state (not protected by British forces), Muslims would have done as he suggested. They would have blackened his face and hung him as he had requested. Do you have any doubt that Mirza Ghulam Qadiani was a grand fabricator?

Mirza Ghulam Qadiani's predictions on Multiple Marriages and Many Children
(All references are from Qadiani books) "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.

Mirza Ghulam Qadiani's predictions on Muhammadi Begum
(All references are from Qadiani books) Mirza Ahmad Baig, a cousin of Mirza Ghulam Qadiani (the founder of the Qadiani cult), had a beautiful daughter, by the name of Muhammadi Begum, in whom Mirza Ghulam Qadiani had shown an interest. However, Mirza Baig, a devoted Muslim, had repeatedly refused to wed his elder daughter to the false Qadiani Prophet whom he viewed as a non-believer (Kafir). By chance, Mirza Baig needed the signature of Mirza Qadiani on a deed pertaining to a piece of land Mirza Baig owned. Mirza Qadiani tried to exploit the situation and suggested he will do so, after requesting divine recommendation (Istekhara). A few days later, Mirza Qadiani informed Mirza Baig that he would sign the deed only if Mirza Baig would agree to wed his young daughter to him. Mirza Qadiani, suggested that he had received a divine revelation of dire consequences should the marriage not take place. His words were: “The Almighty God has told me that I should send a marriage proposal to the elder daughter of a Ahmad Baig; he has also ordered you to accept me as your first son in law and derive light from my knowledge and wisdom. Furthermore, I am to inform you that I have been granted the permission to execute the deed of the land you are interested in and bestow upon you additional land and other favors, provided you wed your daughter to me. This is the only treaty between you and I. So, if you accept, I will accept this too. If you do not accept, then God has ordered me to warn you that -in case the girl is married to someone else -- it will not be auspicious for you or her.” (Aaiana-e-Kamalat-e-Islam Dar Khazain, Vol. 5, P. #572) Certain of the treachery of Mirza Ghulam Qadiani, Mirza Ahmad Baig and his family refused to heed his empty threats. In retaliation, Mirza Qadiani wrote other threatening letters and ordered the creation of posters suggesting dire reprisals from

Allah(SWT), in case Muhammadi Begum was not wedded to him. The following exemplify the false prophecy of this self-proclaimed prophet: “As a token of the Almighty’s favor to this humble person, Allah has ordained that, should Mirza Ahmad Baig refuse to wed his elder daughter to me, he will be considered Allah’s enemy and a disbeliever (Kafir). Additionally, as a punishment for his disbelief, Mirza Baig will die within three years of this refusal and any other man who marries Muhammadi Begum will die within two and half years of the date of his wedding. Muhammadi Begum is destined -- by the almighty Allah -- to ultimately become my wife.” (Tableeg-e-Resalat, Vol. 1 , P. 61 -Collection of Posters-102, Vol. 1 -- Hashia; Feb. 20,1886) Once it became clear that Muhammadi Begum was promised to another man and a wedding was to take place within a few weeks, Mirza Qadiani intensified his threats. This is a sampling of the falsehood Mirza Ghulam Qadiani conjectured and attributed to the Almighty Allah(SWT): “I am making not one, but six predictions:
• • • • • •

I will be alive at the time of the wedding of Muhammadi Begum; Mirza Baig will also be alive at the time of the wedding of his daughter; Mirza Baig will die within three years of the date of the wedding; The Groom will also die within two and half years of the date of the wedding; Muhammadi Begum will remain alive until she becomes my wife; Despite disagreement of all her relatives, she will finally marry me." (Aaina-e-Kamalat-e-Islam Dar Roohani Khazain, P. 325/57”)

Mirza Ghulam Qadiani made similar prophecies in many of his other books, including “Anjam Aatham” (P. 31) and “Tazakara”. However, by the grace of God, his prophecies proved completely wrong. In fact, Muhammadi Begum married a true Muslim, Mirza Sultan Ahmad. They lived together blissfully for forty years after Mirza Ghulam Qadiani’s death in 1908. Mirza Sultan Ahmad finally died in 1948 and Muhammadi Begum passed away in 1966, decades after Mirza Ghulam’s prophecies. Up to her death bed, Muhammadi Begum openly ridiculed Mirza Ghulam Qadiani and declared him a liar and a great deceiver (Dajal). It is indeed a miracle of Allah(SWT) that Mirza Qadiani’s predictions did not materialize. Today, anyone with an ordinary prudence can conclude that Mirza Ghulam Qadiani was an imposture and the worst kind of a liar: one whom fabricated lies and attributed them to the Almighty Allah(SWT).

Mirza Ghulam Qadiani's predictions on Multiple Sons
(All references are from Qadiani books) On February 20, 1886, while Mirza Ghulam's wife was pregnant, Mirza made the following statement: "Indeed, Allah the Compassionate, the Merciful Who is powerful over all things, informed me that he will exhibit His sign - The Sign of Mercy - the clear sign - a handsome son, shapely, pious -- treasure of covert and overt science -- the son of the beloved, fortunate, the exhibitor of the First and the Last, the exponent of truth and spiritual altitude, as if Allah has descended from heaven. The child will grow speedily, will set prisoners free and by him all nations will be blessed.... This great son will be from this present pregnancy." (Tabligh-e-Risalat, Vol. 1, P. 58) After all these pronouncements and announcements, Mirza Ghulam's wife gave birth to a daughter in April. The daughter who was names "Ismat" died in 1891, when she was only five years old. Thus, Mirza Ghulam's first prophecy about a son failed. Apparently, Mirza Ghulam did not learn from his mistakes! On January 1, 1903, while his wife was again pregnant, Mirza Ghulam prophecised: "Praise be to Allah Who bestowed upon me, inspite of old age, four sons and has given me good news of a fifth." (Roohany Khazaen, Vol. 19, P. 360; Nawahil-ur-Rahman, P. 131/139) On the 28th day of the same month, his wife gave birth to a daughter who died within a few months. Thus, the second prophecy of Mirza Ghulam regarding a son failed. When for a third time Mirza's wife conceived, Mirza Ghulam was quick to proclaim: "The son of nobility will be born, a lad well-proportioned and handsome." (Al-Bushra, Vol. 2, P. 91) Only a few months after this prophecy, on June 24, 1904, his wife delivered a daughter! Yes, once more a daughter who was named "Amatul Hafiz"! Obviously, Allah(SWT) meant to repeatedly expose the falsehood in Mirza Ghulam's claims. Yet, Mirza Ghulam and his associates tried to save face and suggest that all these prophecies did not belong to the specific pregnancy, but somehow were foretold about a pregnancy, yet to come! Indeed, Mirza made additional prophecies: "Truly, we give you tiding of a meek boy." (Badr, September 16, 1907; Al-Bushra, Vol. 2, P. 136) "I shall soon bestow upon you a pious boy. My God! Grant me pure progeny. Truly, we give you tidings of a boy whose name is Yahya." (Al-Bushra, Vol. 2, P. 136) Page 11 of 16

Prophecies of Mirza Ghulam Ahmad Qadiani from his own writings

On May 26, 1908, within a few months of this prophecy, Mirza Ghulam died without ever conceiving again. His last child was his daughter, "Amatul Hafiz", born in 1904. Thus, Allah(SWT) proved Mirza to be untruthful on four prophecies regarding a new son. Is there any doubt that Mirza Ghulam was not receiving revelation from Allah(SWT)?

Mirza Ghulam Qadiani's predictions about Marriage to a Virgin and a Widow
(All references are from Qadiani books) 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.

Mirza Ghulam Qadiani's predictions on Mubarak Ahmad
(All references are from Qadiani books) On June 14, 1899, Mirza Ghulam's wife gave birth to a baby boy, whom they called "Mubarak Ahmad". Within a few days of the birth of this son, Mirza Ghulam declared: "This lad is indeed a Spark of the Light of Allah, the promised reformer, the owner of greatness and authority, possessor of healing breath like the Messiah, curer of diseases, a word of God and a lucky person. His fame will spread to the four corners of the world, he will set prisoners free and through him all nations will be blessed." (Tiryaq-ul-Qulub, P. 43) In 1907, when he was only eight years old, this boy fell ill. Concerned that all these prophecies were linked to the livelihood of the boy, Mirza Ghulam had the best treatment available administered to the boy. The boy recovered from his illness and, on August 27, 1907, Mirza made the following statement: "God has revealed to me that He has accepted the prayer and the illness is cured. It means that God has accepted my prayer and Mubarak Ahmad will get well." (Badr, August 29, 1907)

Page 12 of 16

Prophecies of Mirza Ghulam Ahmad Qadiani from his own writings

No sooner had he attributed this statement to Allah(SWT), that Mubarak Ahmad fell ill again and died, on September 16, 1907. (Sirat-ul-Mehdi, P. 40; Alfadl, October 30, 1940) Mirza's false statements were once more exposed. Obviously, Mirza Ghulam was attributing falsehood to Allah(SWT).

Mirza Ghulam Qadiani's predictions on Plague (Cholera)
(All references are from Qadiani books) Regarding the plague which was ravaging in the Indian Province of Punjab, Mirza Ghulam said: "He is the truthful God who has sent His Apostle to Qadian. He shall protect and defend Qadian against plague even though it will be on the rampage for seventy years, for Qadian is the dwelling place of His Apostle and in this are signs for nations." (Dafi-ul-Bala, P. 10-11) However, even though the cities neighboring Qadian were not affected by the plague, Qadian was ravaged by the plague for almost one year. In a letter to his son-in-law, Muhammad Ali Khan, Mirza Ghulam wrote: "Plague here is in its worst form. A person dies within hours after he is infected by it. God alone knows when will this extreme trial end... Please bring with you a big package of phenol nephthaline whose price is about twenty rupees. Also send phenol for your own house." (Maktubat-i-Ahmadiyya, Vol. 5, P. 112-113) In another letter to his son-in-law, Mirza admitted that the plague had entered his house: "Plague has not spared even our own house. The elderly Ghausan (an elderly woman) was afflicted by it. We expelled her from the house. Ustad Muhammad Din was also struck with plague. We turned him out too. Today, another woman who was visiting us and had come from Delhi was also struck with plague. I also fell seriously ill and I felt that between me and death were only a few seconds." (Maktubat-i-Ahmadiyya, Vol 5, P. 115) This is even thought Mirza Ghulam had prophecised about Qadian and his house: "And in this is a sign for nations." "Indeed my house is like the Arc of Noah. Whosoever enters it is immune against calamities and misfortunes." (Safina-i-Nooh, P. 26)

Prophecies of Mirza Ghulam Ahmad Qadiani from his own writings

Mirza Ghulam's prophecy regarding the sanctity of his house, the safety of Qadian, and the plague were all shown to be false. The plague was indeed "a sign for all nations"! It was the sign of Mirza Ghulam's falsehood and lies against Allah(SWT). Was Mirza Ghulam Mehdi, Messiah, or a Prophet? Wasn't he simply an Impostor?

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, Allah(SWT)'s 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)

Prophecies of Mirza Ghulam Ahmad Qadiani from his own writings

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 died..." (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?

Mirza Ghulam Qadiani's predictions on Dr. Abdul Hakim
(All references are from Qadiani books) For twenty years, Dr. Abdul Hakim was a follower of Mirza Ghulam Qadiani. When Mirza Ghulam's claims became completely outrageous and obviously unIslamic, Dr. Hakim separated from the "Ahmadi" movement and commnced exposing their lies. In a public gathering, Mirza Ghulam Qadiani entered into a discussion with Dr. Abdul Hakim. Dr. Hakim openly rebuked all his claims, called him a liar, and challenged him to an open debate. As it was the habit with Mirza Ghulam, he refused the debate, and instead announced: "Abdul Hakim will die during my life-time, as he insults and disgraces me. He shall not live to insult me." Dr. Hakim was not at all affected by the cowardly act of Mirza Ghulam and, on May 4, 1907, he announced: "The Qadiani pretender will die within fifteen months from today." Mirza Ghulam was quite outraged that his threat had not affected Dr. Hakim in the least. Immediately, he announced: "Another enemy has appeared now; his name is Abdul Hakim Khan and he is a doctor who lives in state of Patiala. He claims that I shall die in his life-time, before the fourth of August 1908, as the sign of his truthfulness. He claims to have been inspired that I am a dajjal (impostor), kafir (unbeliever), and kazzab (habitual liar). At first, he had taken bay’at with me and for twenty years he had continuously been in my Jama'at (movement) and one of my disciples; however, now he has become an unbeliever (e.g. not a Qadiani)… God has informed me, however, that he will be afflicted with torturous punishment and God will perish him. I shall, on the other hand, remain safe from his mischief. This is a matter in the control of God. Undoubtedly, God will help those who are truthful..."

Prophecies of Mirza Ghulam Ahmad Qadiani from his own writings

(Chashma-e-Maeroofat, Roohany Khazaen, Vol. 23, P. 337; Ain-ul-Marifa, P. 321322, May 1908)" "The enemy (Abdul Hakim) who wishes for my death will soon die. He shall be annihilated in my presence as were annihilated the 'companions of the Elephant'." (Tabsara) Once again, Allah(SWT) intended to make the prophecies of this pretender, a sign of his falsehood and give the followers of Mirza Ghulam a wake up call. Mirza Ghulam died suddenly and unexpectedly, on the morning of May 25, 1908. Allah(SWT) made the prophecy of Dr. Hakim come true and rejected all the prophecies of Mirza Ghulam Qadiani in this regard. These are all signs for those who deserve to be saved. After this, would anyone geopardize their soul by following the false teachings of Mirza Ghulam and the Qadiani leadership?

Mirza Ghulam Qadiani's predictions Concerning Long Life
(All references are from Qadiani books) 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.

Mirza Ghulam Qadiani's predictions Concerning Death in a Holy City
(All references are from Qadiani books) 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.
