Reality of the mubahalah Of Abdul Haq Ghaznavi

Before this allegation is answered, it is extremely important to note the verse about the mubahalah in the Holy Qur’an. Allah the Almighty States:


فَمَنْ حَاجَّكَ فِيهِ مِنْ بَعْدِ مَا جَاءَكَ مِنَ الْعِلْمِ فَقُلْ تَعَالَوْا نَدْعُ أَبْنَاءَنَا وَأَبْنَاءَكُمْ وَنِسَاءَنَا وَنِسَاءَكُمْ وَأَنْفُسَنَا وَأَنْفُسَكُمْ ثُمَّ نَبْتَهِلْ فَنَجْعَلْ لَعْنَتَ اللَّهِ عَلَى الْكَاذِبِينَ{62}


Now whoso disputes with thee concerning him, after what has come to thee of knowledge, say to him, ‘Come, let us call our sons and your sons, and our women and your women, and our people and your people; then let us pray fervently and invoke the curse of Allah on those who lie.’(Chapter 3 Verse 62)


People misunderstand that a mubahalah is a automatic death for the liar but this is not true. It is a pray to Allah, to curse the liar between the two parties. Ahmadas was never into mubahalahs and never wanted to enter into a mubahalah with any Muslim. He loved everyone who called themselves a Muslim and prayed for them. He wanted to avoid this mubahalah as well, but Ghaznavi challenged him. This can be read from Ruhani Khazain, Volume 11, Page 305. Furthermore, for more information on the prayer duel between both the Muslim parties, one can refer to the leaflet of April 12, 1891 in Majmua Istaharat Volume 1 Page 211. He only agreed to this challenge if it is on the conditions of the above verse of the Qur’an. It is also important to note that no one is even aware of Abdul Haq. The only reason he is known is because he was ruined by Ahmadas and by the wrath of Allah. He is known in the same way Abu Jahal is known to the Muslims.


In reality, no where has Ahmadas stated that Abdul Haq would die in his life time as a result of this mubahalah and nor did Abdul Haq claim that he would live longer than Ahmadas who would die in his lifetime.


The non Ahmadi Muslims quote Ahmadas out of context that he said the liar in the mubahalah always dies first. This is taken out of context. It is obvious that Allah makes a clear distinction between the one who is truthful and the one who is a liar one year after the mubahalah and this is not just our belief, rather the Muslims themselves. Ahmadas mentioned this as well in Ruhani Khazain Volume 9 Page 34. The above mentioned mubahalah was held in the year of 1893 and the death of anyone was not mentioned. This quote is out of context in where Ahmadas is answering a question in regards to Musailma Kadhab. This occurred 14 years after the mubahalah with Ghaznavi. Some people asked that if Musailma was the liar why did he not die before the Holy Prophetsaw. The answer to this is a plain and simple one that Musailma did not enter into a mubahalah and if he did he would have been humiliated.


The anti Ahmadi Muslims also say that Ahmadas died in the life time of Ghaznavi. Once again this mubahalah did not have to do with one dying before. Ahmadas did not even invoke the curse of Allah in the mubahalah because of the ignorance of the maulvi. Ahmadas made clear prophecies in regards to Abdul Haq which proved Ahmadas to be truthful. He prophesied:


” According to the revelation received by me after my mubahalah [with ‘Abdul-Haqq], God bestowed a son upon me by whose birth the number of my sons from my second wife became three. Not only this, but I received repeated revelations regarding the birth of a fourth son. I wish to assure ‘Abdul-Haqq that he will not die till after he learns of the fulfilment of this revelation. Now if he has any pretentions let him pray that this prophecy might be averted.” (Anjam-e-Atham, Page 58, Ruhani Khazain, Volume 11, Page 342).

To affirm my truth and to falsify all my opponents, and to warn ‘Abdul-Haqq Ghaznavi, God Almighty fulfilled the prophecy concerning the birth of a fourth son on Wednesday June 14, 1899, that is to say, the blessed fourth son was born on that day. [Tiryaqul-Qulub, p. 43, Ruhani Khaza’in, vol. 15, p. 221] This refers to Mubarak Ahmad.

Abdul Haqq dying nine years after Ahmadas is itself a sign of the support of Allah. The curse of Allah fell on Haq many times. His brother died the same year and he had to marry his brothers widow. Ahmadas said that marrying an old man who lost her youth and charm could not be a blessing at all, rather the death of the brother was something to ponder upon. Then Abdul Haq claimed that he will have a son and made this prophecy. It is our challenge for anyone to produce this son or give us his name, never will there ever be a person who defends Abdul Haq in his false prophecy.


The same mullahs who opposed Ahmadas, saw the results of the mubahalah on the same day on the Eidgah it occurred on. Batalvi was also challenge for a mubahalah along with Abdul Haq but as many know he was scared his entire life and it was even said by Ahmadas that he would never come up for a mubahalah and would also repent in his takfir which was a fulfilled prophecy. Abdul Haq was not ready either but was pressured. He only used filthy language against Ahmadas and continued to gain sins. Ahmadas did not curse the opponent rather he made a strong prayer that as his opponents regard him as a liar, imposter, infident and that if he was as they say, God should curse him in a unprecedented manner. The people who were present at the Eidgah were so shocked at his prayer that they started to cry themselves. One of the followers of the Maulvi himself, Maulvi Muhammad Yaqoob fell at the feet of Ahmadas and accepted Ahmadiyyat. Sheikh Noor Ahmad was an eye witness and has stated this in his book “Noor Ahmad” on page 32. When the prayer was over, both Maulvi Muhammad Yaqoob and Hafiz muhamma Yusuf stated in front of many that the father of Abdul Haq who was a known saint named Abdullah Ghaznavii had a vision where he saw a light of Allah descend upon Qadian which his children were deprived of (Life of Ahmad, Page 375). This itself shows that Abdul Haq lost the mubahalah way before it had started.


Ahmadas was gaining the blessings of Allah day by day after this challenge. The followers of Ahmadas increased to thousands and in that year eight thousand people accepted Ahmadiyyat and took his baiat. The purpose of this mubahalah was to save people from accepting the wrong person and the result of who Allah chose is also clear. It is also important to note that no son was given to Abdul Haq so his prophecy also failed. Another amazing sign which occured in that year is Allah Showered the sign of the eclipses which were prophesied by Muhammadsaw. Ahmadas also published Lecture Lahore, and the Philosophy of the Teachings of Islam was translated into English. Ahmadasalso completed a book in response to a leaflet where Abdul Haq bragged about his victory which was called Tohfa Ghaznavia. In this book Ahmadas refuted all of the claims of Abdul Haq and showed him the true reality of the mubahalah. Ahmadas challenged about 100 other mullahs, scholars and sufis and others to settle this matter once and for all and no one was able to step up. Ahmadasalso challenged others like Dowie, Atham, Lekh Ram and Piggott and was successful every time. Either they repented or were humiliated. Abdul Haq is not known anywhere in the world, while the name of Ahmadas is shining in all corners.
