by Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad, The Promised Messiah and Mahdi(as)
Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad (peace be on him) of Qadian wrote Itmamul-Hujjah (The Conclusive Argument) in 1894 primarily to rebut the claim of Maulawi Rusul Baba of
Amritsar, who contended in his book Hayatul-Masih (The Life of the Messiah) that Jesus (peace be on him) was still physically alive in heaven. Rusul Baba also promised an award of 1,000 rupees to anyone who could prove that Jesus(as) was dead.
Accepting this challenge, Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad(as) of Qadian documented irrefutable arguments in this book, written primarily in classical Arabic, supported by clear testimony from the Holy Quran, Hadith, and eminent Muslim scholars and divines of the past that — like all other Prophets — Jesus(as) had died and would never return to this world.
Rusul Baba, silenced by the rebuttal of Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad(as), avoided any further confrontation through the remainder of his life, which ended in 1902 as a result of the plague.
