Impotent?

The allegation which the non Ahmadi Muslims quote is that Ahmadas stated that he suffered from impotency. Even if one was to agree that the quotations they bring forward are a honest translation, it shows the honesty of the Promised Messiahas to admit a weakness in regards to his life. There is not a single instance from any Qur’anic ayah or any hadith which  states that one who lacks physical virility has a worst relationship with Allah or cannot be a prophet of Allah. Weakness is a normal issue and human beings are prone to this, especially with age. These quotations of the non Ahmadi Muslims are from the time when Ahmadas was around the age of fifty and therefore there is no issue of such a feeling.

 

The quotes the non Ahmadi Muslims bring fourth proves their total dishonesty. One main quotation is from Navista-e-Ghaib which does not refer to a permanent condition of impotency. It only states that Ahmaas used to think he was impotent and this made perfect sense for Ahmadas as the time of his second marriage was in 1884 and he spent the previous 28 years of his life in a chaste state. His first marriage broke down when he was only 21 years old. This statement is made around February 1887 which was when Ahmadas was over the age of fifty two years. During this time, he had two sons, named Mirza Sultan Ahmad and Mirza Fazl Ahmad and one daughter named Ismat which was from his second marriage and a son named Bashir who was due six months later in August 1887. These baseless allegations of the non Ahmadis are proven wrong as he himself had children after this statement.

 

The second quotation they try to raise is from Tiryaqul Qulub, from 1889 when Ahmadas was over the age of sixty four years, and by this time Allah blessed him with several children from his second wife. This itself is an evidence that the weakness he suffered in regards to this, was a temporary phase since he married again in 1884 at the age of around fifty and was blessed with ten children, which included six sons and four daughters. The youngest was born to Ahmadas when he was over 69 years of age who was named Amatul Hafeez Begum.

 

It is quite clear that Ahmadas was blessed with ten children at an advanced age, despite the fears of his people had in regards to his health, which itself is a sign of divine assistance. When Maulvi Hussain Batalvi heard of the marriage of Ahmadas, he stated:

 

“If this marriage has been undertaken in consideration of any spiritual powers then I have no objections because I am not a denier of the appetites and powers of God Almighty’s saints otherwise it is a matter of grave concern lest some hardship be occasioned” (Tiryaqul Qulub, page 35, Ruhani Khazain, Volume 15, page 203)

 

The children of Ahmadas are themselves proof of the false allegations against Ahmadas and show that Allah assisted Ahmadas every step of his life.

 

The quotes the non Ahmadis bring fourth are totally dishonest. One main one they bring from Navista-e-Ghaib does not at all refer to a permanent condition of impotency. It only states that the author used to think he was impotent and this made perfect sense for Ahmad(as) as the time of his second marriage was in 1884 and he spent the previous 28 years of his life in a chaste state. His first marriage broke down when he was only 21 years of age. This statement is made around February, 1887 which was when Ahmad(as) was over the age of 52 years. During this time already, he had two sons, Mirza Sultan Ahmad and Mirza Fazl Ahmad and also one daughter named Ismat which was from his second marriage and a son named Bashir who was due six months latter in August 1887. These baseless allegations of the non Ahmadis are proven wrong itself as he had children. The second quotation they try to raise is from Tiryaqul Qulub, from 1889 when Ahmad(as) was over the age of 64 years, and by this time Allah blessed him with several children from his second wife. This itself is an evidence that the weakness he suffered in regards to this, was a temporary phase since he married again in 1884 at the age over around fifty and was blessed with ten children, which included six sons and four daughters. The youngest was born to Ahmad(as) when he was over 69 years of age who was named Hazrat Amatul Hafeez Begum (ra).

 

It is quite clear that Ahmad(as) was blessed with ten children at an advanced age, despite the fears of his people had in regards to his health, which itself is a sign of divine assistance. When Maulvi Muhammad Hussain Batalvi heard of the marriage of Ahmad(as), he stated:

 

“If this marriage has been undertaken in consideration of any spiritual powers then I have no objections because I am not a denier of the appetites and powers of God Almighty’s saints otherwise it is a matter of grave concern lest some hardship be occasioned” (Tiryaqul Qulub, page 35, Ruhani Khazain, Volume 15, page 203)

 

The children of Ahmad(as) themselves are proof of the false allegations against Ahmad(as) and show that Allah was assists him as Batalvi himself was forced to state.
