As far as the Ahmadis are concerned, we have firm faith that the one coming, in accordance with the prophecies of the Holy Prophet(sa), will certainly be a Prophet of Allah. This is also the firm belief of all of you who oppose us. Why have you then stirred up this storm of falsehood and accusations? Why these venomous writings? Why this demand to declare Ahmadis non-Muslims and infidels? It is part of your creed that the Messiah would be a Prophet. Whether he is the old Messiah or a new Messiah is a different argument. Even that has been settled by your own previous scholars and ulema. The ahadith and the Holy Qur’an leave no room for doubt about it. The Ahmadiyya Muslim Community belief is clear and categorical and consistent with what is stated in the ahadith and the Holy Qur’an.
You have been arguing with us for the last one hundred years, subjecting our people to unprovoked violence. Despite our appeals to reason, you continue in your misguided ways, even today!…
The opponents can massacre Ahmadis one after another, but that will not settle this matter. They may massacre one, two or a thousand Ahmadis. We know that God declares them to be among the living. They have no power to change this. Conversely, if God declares somebody dead, you do not have the power to bring him to life. Failure is your destiny. The Ahmadis will continue to live and you will never be able to bring Jesus(as) back to life. The Ahmadiyya Community will not perish by your massacring even thousands of us. Bring one man—Jesus—to life and that would be the end of the Jama‘at. This argument has persisted for a long time. Your own ulema have been lamenting over your miserable plight for more than a hundred years saying that no semblance of Islam has been left in you, but your defiance and disobedience continues unabated. What is Jesus(as) doing in the heavens? Why doesn’t he descend to rescue you? Instead of indulging in the genocide of the Ahmadis, bring Jesus(as) back down alive. Should you succeed, I give you my word that I, with all my Jama‘at, will renounce our faith and join you instantly. We are the ones who have been imbibed with the spirit of obedience. We will fight in front of Jesus, behind him, and all around him. We are the ones who say: ‘We believe and testify to its truth.’
But I tell you that if your Jesus—the presumed Jesus whom you present— did hypothetically ascend to the heavens and does come back to earth alive, you will surely oppose him.
Why don’t you settle this controversy by praying fervently to Allah that the controversies have persisted too long and the world has gone through major changes, and Allah Almighty may send Jesus back to earth, just as the Jews go to the wailing wall begging for Elias as a precursor of the Messiah.
Don’t you have any feeling of pain and anguish for the life of Islam? Not to speak of Jesus, even the donkey of the Antichrist has not yet appeared according to your doctrines.
You people are living a life of fables and fantasies. You have severed all ties with reality. We pray for you, seeing your sorry and sad plight.
I say, on oath, in the name of the Almighty, in whose hands is my life and the lives of all Ahmadis, that if Jesus(as) is alive and we are wrong, may God annihilate us. I say to you, solemnly, on oath, that Jesus(as) has passed away and Islam is alive. The survival of Islam demands that you give up this false belief. Let go of it. Therein lies the survival of Islam.
The people of Pakistan are going through a very grave situation. As prophesied clearly by the Promised Messiah(as)– they are suffering the consequences of their evil deeds. It is also clear from the Holy Qur’an that martyrdoms bear abundant fruits. Allah the Almighty grants manifold rewards in return for martyrdom. However, the Holy Qur’an also narrates the example of nations that were totally wiped out because of their tyranny.
We, Ahmadis, are not a people who only relish the bounties. We have also become used to exercising patience and perseverance. We will continue to do so. But our opponents are in grave risk. When the chastisement of Allah strikes, it wipes the nation out. If they wish to escape, they must seek Allah’s forgiveness. Therein lies their salvation.
