A Brief History of Ahmadiyya Movement In Islam|
His Last Journey
A banquet was arranged on May 17th for the dignitaries of Lahore and on the insistence of the guests, he spoke for two hours outlining his claims, teachings and refutations of objection raised against him.
All the while he was constantly receiving revelations regarding his imminent demise. On May 20th, he received his last revelation (Arabic):
Ar-Raheelo Suma ar-Raheelo wal-Mauto Qareebun
Inna lillahe wa inna elahe rajeoon
Allah, meray piyaray Allah
Although Hudhoor (AS) had been receiving revelations for some time concerning his death and which had intensified during the last days of his life, members of the Jamaat were shattered and bewildered because of his death after such a short illness. Muslim as well as non-Muslim leaders were equally saddened and expressed their sympathies while professing his sterling qualities.
Newspapers called him a conquering general of Islam, the mighty fighter of Islam, pious, righteous and divine like old prophets of Israel. However there were some small-minded adversaries of the Jamaat who did not hesitate to show their enmity on this occasion. They organized a demonstration to spite the Ahmadis at the house where he had passed away. They hurled insults, and their behavior was obnoxious but Ahmadis endured this with utmost patience.
