Hadith on Marriage and Children of Promised Messiah

The Ahmadiyya Gazette, February 1997

Hadhrat Abdullah bin Umar narrates that the Holy Prophet (saw) said: When Eisa, son of Mary, descends upon the earth, he will marry and will have children...

In explaining this Hadith, the Promised Messiah (as) says: "The Holy Prophet (saw) made a prophecy on the basis of revelation from Almighty Allah that the Promised Messiah will marry and he will have children. This indicates that Almighty Allah will grant him a son who will be similar to his father in goodness, and will not differ from him. And he will be among the righteous servants of Allah." (Ayena Kamalati Islam, p. 578)
