Inna lillahe wa inna ilehay rajeoon
We are from Allah, and indeed to Him we return.
Hazrat Mirza Bashiruddin Mahmud Ahmad led the funeral prayer right after his election as the Second Caliph. He remained Caliph for a period of six years. He discharged the onerous responsibilities of the office diligently.
Hazrat Maulana was a true devotee of Islam, the Holy Quran, the Holy Prophet of Islam(saw), and Imam of the latter days the Promised Messiah(as). He was a personification of many treasured qualities, above all a Siddiq (the most truthful and devoted). He served Islam to the last breath of his life. He was laid to rest in the Bahishti Maqbara on March 14 at 6:15pm, next to the tomb of his holy master & benefactor, the Promised Messiah(as).
