Nabuwwat (Prophethood) of the Promised Messiah and Change in Maulvi Mohammad Ali's Belief
Mr. Faruqi has made his book a bilingual publication, Urdu on one page, English on the page opposite, the reason he has given for this being:
"The Muslims in general and the Ahmadis in particular from foreign countries have been clamouring about some authentic book, preferably in English, which would deal with the `claims' of the Promised Messiah and the `Split' that occurred among the mureeds of the Promised Messiah, and what is the truth behind it. So to meet this demand, this book has been prepared." (Truth Triumphs, Foreword, page 5)
In this book, Mr. Faruqi also brings under discussion, questions in dispute between the two Sections of the Ahmadiyya Movement. But it is highly regrettable that in this discussion he employs an extremely vulgar and low style of language, descending to a foul, abusive, insulting style of expression in dirty personal attacks on Hazrat Khalifatul Masih II. This is something one does not expect from a decent and pious Muslim. The law does not allow it, nor does the Sharia .
In controversy over points involving religious beliefs, however, things of this kind occur where the argument is weak and attempts are made to hide this weakness by resorting to vituperous language in personal attacks of questionable value.
The literary technique used by the Christians and Aryasamajists, against the Holy Prophet Mohammad is the style Mr. Faruqi has thought proper for attacks on Hazrat Khalifatul Masih II. But he should have known that, in the eyes of his decent minded readers, attacks of this kind would fail to give strength to the case he was trying to build up.
The Holy Prophet said: "When you talk about people who have passed away, in death, say only good things about them, as far as you can." This is a very golden principle, in all human intercourse; one cannot help being sorry to find that Mr. Faruqi threw this fine teaching to the winds, and proceeded to make low personal attacks against the son of a gentleman whom Mr. Faruqi believes to be the Promised Messiah, raised to deliver mankind especially the Muslims, from irreligion - from sin and evil.
Similarly one also feels sorry for the Ahmadiyya Anjuman Isha'ati-Islam, responsible for bringing out a publication which so deeply, and so grievously injures our feelings.
