Claim to being Superior to Muhammad (salullahu alaih wassalam)
“The various accomplishments which were bestowed upon all other Prophets were concentrated in a greater degree in the holy prophet. All those accomplishments have been conferred on me through the holy Prophet by means of the shadow system. That is why I bear the name of Adam, Ibrahim, Moses, Noah, Daud, Yousuf, Solaiman, Yahya, Jesus, etc. All the previous Prophets were incarnations of special attributes of the holy Prophet (salullahu alaih wassalam) , but I am a reincarnation of all these special attributes of the holy Prophet.
(Malfoozat, Vol. 3, P. 270, Rabwah)
“And Allah sent down upon me the bounty of the holy Prophet and made it perfect; and he drew towards me the kindness and generosity of the merciful Prophet, so that I became one with him. Thus, he who joins my group, joins the group of the companions (Sahaba) of my Leader, the best of messengers. It is not hidden from those who have the ability to think that this is what the words “Akhareen Menhom” (others of them) mean. The person who makes a difference between me and the Mustafa has neither seen me nor recognized me.”
Khutba-e-Ilhamiah, Roohany Khazaen, Vol. 16, P. 258-259; Khutba-e-Ilhamiah, P. 171)
“Many Thrones descended from the heaven but thy throne has been placed the highest.”
(Tadhkirah, P. 346/643, Second Edition – Mirza’s “Revelation”; Haqiqat-ul-Wahi, P. 89)
“One who denies that the mission of the Prophet (salullahu alaih wassalam) is related to the 6th thousand (13th century) as it was related to 5th thousand (6th century), denies the truth and the text of the Quran and is among the zalemeen (gone astray). The truth is that the spiritual power of the holy Prophet (salullahu alaih wassalam) at the end of the 6th thousand (13th century in Mirza Ghulam), i.e. these days, is much stronger, more complete and stronger than in those early years. Nay, it is like the fourteenth (moonlit) night (full moon).”
Khutbah-e-Ilhamiah, Roohany Khazaen, Vol. 16, P. 271-272; Khutbah-e-Ilhamiah, P. 181)
“For the holy Prophet, God showed only the sign of Eclipse of Moon; But for me he has shown the sign of Eclipse of both Moon and Sun (solar eclipse), thus will you disbelieve me. If his Kalaam (words) were a miracle, a sign, my Kalaam is also a miracle.”
(Aijaz-e-Ahmadi, Roohany Khazaen, Vol.19, P.183; Aijaz-e-Ahmadi, P. 71/79)
“And say, O People, I have come as a Prophet of Allah towards you all.”
(Tadhkirah, P. 352, Fourth Edition, Mirza Ghulam’s “revelations”)
“It is possible for a man to attain a spiritual position higher than any other man; if any man wishes, he can rise even above Muhammad (salullahu alaih wassalam) .”
(Al-Fadl, July 17, 1922, by Mirza Mahmood Ahmad Qadiani)
“[It is a fact that Muhammad (pbuh) worked only three thousand miracles…] My Miracles exceed one million in number.”
(Tadhkirah tul Shahadatain, Roohany Khazaen, Vol. 20, P. 43)
“And Islam started like the crescent which was destined ultimately to become in the later ages the full moon (of the 14th night of the month), by the command of God. Thus, Allah’s Wisdom willed that Islam should assume the form of the full moon in that century which should resemble the full moon by way of counting (i.e. in the 14th century).”
(Khutba-i-Ilhamiah, Roohany Khazaen, Vol. 16, P. 275; Khutba-i-Ilhamiah, P. 184/93)
“The spiritual achievement of our holy prophet (salullahu alaih wassalam) took place during the 5th thousand (the Mekkan mission) with its brief attributes and that period was not the end of this spiritual achievement. It was rather the first step to the highest pinnacle of its perfection. Thereafter, this spiritual achievement manifested itself in its full glamour during the 6th thousand (the time of Mirza Ghulam).”
(Khutba-i-Ilhamiah, Roohany Khazaen, Vol. 16, P. 266; Khutba-i-Ilhamiah, P. 177)
“It is worth remembering here that the Khutba-e-Ilhamiah (the inspired Address) is that Address which was conferred upon the Promised Messiah by God in the form of a miracle, as its name indicates. So this book should not be taken as an ordinary book, because every sentence of it has the characteristic of divine inspiration. Then, at Page 171 of this very book, hazrate aqdas (Mirza Ghulam) says:
‘He who makes a difference between me and the Mustafa has neither seen me nor recognized me.’ Similarly it is written at page 181, ‘He who denies that the mission of the Prophet (salullahu alaih wassalam) is related to the 6th thousand (13th century) as it was related to the 5th thousand (6th century), denies the truth and the text of the Quran. The truth is that the spiritual power of the holy Prophet (salullahu alaih wassalam) at the end of the 6th thousand, i.e. these days, is much stronger, more complete and stronger than in those early years’. It is clear from these references that the Promised Messiah was not a man of ordinary status. But, among the Ummah of Muhammad, in consideration of his rank, he surpassed all’ (including hazrat Muhammad).”
(Kalimat-ul-Fasl, P. 130-131; Review of Religions, March-April 1915)
“O dear ones, Our Imam in this world is Ghulam Ahmad in the “Darul Amaan” (house of security, Qadian).
Ghulam Ahmad is the Throne (Arsh) of the Great Lord (Rabbe Akbar).
This is as if his rest-house is situated in a place which knows no bounds (La Makan).
Ghulam Ahmad is the true Messenger of Allah (Rasul Allah).
He has been elevated with honor among mankind and Jinn.
Muhammad has been reincarnated among us; enhanced is he in his dignity and rank.
O Akmal, it anyone longs to see Muhammad, he should see Ghulam Ahmad in Qadian.”
(Al-Badr, Vol. 2, No. 25, October 25, 1906; reprint in Paigham-us-Sulh, March 14, 1916)
“The Mental development of the holy Messiah (Mirza of Qadian) was higher than that of the holy Prophet (salullahu alaih wassalam) … This is only a part of the superiority which the Promised Messiah (Mirza Ghulam) had over the holy Prophet (salullahu alaih wassalam) . The mental faculties of the holy Prophet could not be manifested fully, although the capacity existed, owing to the deficient civilization of the time. They have now manifested themselves in their full form through the Promised Messiah, by force of the advancement of civilization.”
(Review of Religions, May 1929; Qadiani Religion, P. 266/241; 9th Edition Lahore)
This is indicative of the true unIslamic beliefs of Qadianism. In Islam, believing that one can reach and surpass the holy Prophet of Allah (salullahu alaih wassalam) , the greatest of believers and prophets, amounts to disbelief. In the Holy Quran, we are even told:
O you who believe! Do not put yourself ahead of Allah and His Messenger; But fear Allah: for Allah is He Who hears and knows all things.
O you who believe! Raise not your voices above the voice of the Prophet, nor speak aloud to him in talk, as you may speak aloud to one another, lest your deeds become vain and you perceive not.
(Holy Quran, Al-Hujurat, 49:1-2)
What of the people who believe they can surpass the holy Prophet (salullahu alaih wassalam) in the matter of faith? What of the people who believe Islam was somehow imperfect at the time of the Holy Prophet (salullahu alaih wassalam) and needed Mirza’s “revelations” to become an improved faith?! Haven’t they abandoned Islam by denying the following verse of the Holy Quran?
“This day have I perfected your religion for you, completed my favor upon you and have chosen for you Islam as your religion.”
(The Holy Quran, Al-Maidah 5:3)
