Falsehood of Abdul Hakeem of Patala

Abdul Hakim Patiala

In the year of 1905, two and a half years before Hadrat Ahmad (as) passed away, he (as) published the book “The Will” which is also known as al-Wasiyyat. In this book, he (as) published revelations regarding his death approaching.

On the 9th of April, 1905 Allah the Almighty Revealed:

قَرُبَ أجَلُكَ الْمُقَدَّرُ

‘Your determined term of life is nearing its end’ (The Will, Page 1)

Allah the Almighty also revealed that his appointed time has come and very few days remain:

تمام حوادث اور عجائبات قدرت دکھلانے کے بعد تیرا حادثہ ہو گا

‘Your event will be after all other events and the showing of natural wonders’ (Barahin-e-Ahmadiyya, Part 5, Page 115)

It is recorded in the Review of Religions that Hadrat Ahmad (as) stated:

“A few days ago, I saw in my dream that someone had given me some water in a new earthen vessel. Only two or three mouthfuls of water remained in it, but the water was very clear and pure. This was accompanied by the revelation:

آب زندگی

“[“Water of life”]” (Tadhkirah, p. 786, [The Review of Religions, Vol. 4, December 1905, p. 480])

Hadrat Ahmad (as) on the 20th of February, 1907 had a revelation that his body is wrapped in a shroud:

Two or three mouthfuls of water referred to the amount of years Hadrat Ahmad (as) had remaining in his life. The prophecies of Hadrat Ahmad (as)’s death were being published by him regularly. In December 1907, Hadrat Ahmad (as) was told in a revelation that

“An event on the 27th” ([Badr, vol. 6, no. 51, December 19, 1907, p. 4, 5 and al-Hakam, vol. 11, no. 46, December 24, 1907, p. 4) and it was on the 27th day of May when the funeral prayer of Hadrat Ahmad (as) took place.

The opponents were also aware of these prophecies. Because of this, an apostate named Abdul Hakeem started to mock and oppose the Promised Messiah (as) more than ever before and started publishing his own prophecies.

Regarding this, Hadrat Mirza Bashir Ahmad (ra) writes:

This is a prophecy in response to ‘Abdul-Hakim Khan (apostate) who had made a prophecy about the Promised Messiah (as). This is how it was fulfilled. Allah the Almighty kept extending the life of the Promised Messiah (as) until the time that ‘Abdul-Hakim himself withdrew his prophecies in which he had prophesied the demise of the Promised Messiah(as) within a certain period. But when he specified a date for his prophecy, Allah the Almighty falsified him in another way. The details are the following: He published a prophecy on July 12, 1906 that:

Mirza is perverse, liar and deceitful. He will perish in the presence of the truthful. The period has been revealed as three years. (Kana Dajjal, p. 50)

In response to this, the Promised Messiah(as) was taught the following prayer in revelation:

رَبِّ فَرِّقْ بين صادق وكاذب

[Arabic] O Allah, discriminate between the truthful and the liar.

Then he [‘Abdul-Hakim] wrote on July 1, 1907:

In response to his impertinence and disobedience, God has reduced the three year limit—which was to be completed on July 11, 1909—by ten months and eleven days. He revealed to me on July 1, 1907 that Mirza would die and cast into hell within fourteen months from today. [I‘ilanul-Haqq wa Itmamul-Hujjah wa Takmilah by the apostate mentioned above, p. 6]

In response, the Promised Messiah (as) published his revelation in the Announcement of November 5, 1907:

میں تیری عمر کو بھی بڑھا دوں گا

[Urdu] I will lengthen your days also. [Majmu‘a-e-Ishtiharat, vol. 3, p. 591 and al-Hakam, November 10, 1907, page 7]

Thereafter the said apostate announced on February 16: Mirza would die before Sawan] 21, 1965 [Bikrami] [corresponding to August 4, 1908]. [I‘ilanul-Haqq wa Itmamul-Hujjah wa Takmilah, p. 26]

He later abrogated this as well:

The Promised Messiah (as) stated in response: In response to his prophecy, Allah the Almighty has conveyed to me that he himself would be cast into torment and Allah will annihilate him and I shall remain secure from his mischief. [Chashma-e-Ma‘rifat, p. 322, Ruhani Khaza’in, vol. 23, p. 337]

The key words are that Hadrat Ahmad (as) said that these prophecies were in response to his prophecies that Hadrat Ahmad (as) would pass away by August 4, 1908.

Then the said apostate announced through a letter dated May 8, 1908 in the newspapers: Mirza would fall prey to a fatal illness and would die on Sawan 21, 1965 [Bikrami] [August 4, 1908]. [Paisa Akhbar, May 15, 1908 and Ahl-e-Hadith, May 15, 1908]

Some raise the false allegation that this was the last verdict of Hadrat Ahmad (as) on this and that he was unaware that Abdul Hakim Patiala chose a specific date for the death of the Messiah (as). This is a lie as well.

Hadrat Ahmad (as) was told the following by his companions:

“Arab Sahib Abdul Muhayi submitted that, ‘I have come from Patiala. Abdul Hakeem has prophesied about you that you would pass away on the 21st of Sawan [Hindu month for July-August], but the people of Patiala know quite well that he is a liar.’”

Now he specified the date of his prophecy and the age of Hadrat Ahmad (as) did not need to be lengthened any further as the purpose of the prophecy was to expose Dr Abdul Hakim as a liar. As he changed his prophecy to a specific date, the way he would be exposed is if Hadrat Ahmad (as) passed away on a different date and this is exactly what had happened.



The Promised Messiah (as) wrote in response: Allah the Almighty will manifest who is the truthful. [Badr vol. 7, no. 19–20, May 24, 1908, p. 7]

Allah the Almighty so ordained that the apostate himself cancelled his three earlier prophecies. Thus Allah the Almighty falsified his last prophecy, because the Promised Messiah (as) passed away, not on August 4, 1908, but on May 26, 1908.

صدق الله ورسوله وكان أمر الله مفعولا

[Allah and his Messenger spoke the truth and Allah’s decree was bound to be fulfilled.]

The prophecies of the apostate were reverted upon him. He had claimed a revelation on October 30, 1906 the ‘Mirza has died of lungs disease’. But he himself succumbed to lungs disease. He prophesied that; ‘Mirza’s foundation will be uprooted’ and had stated about himself; ‘You will succeed’. [I‘ilanul-Haqq, p. 7], but he himself was so uprooted that he went into total oblivion. But Allah the Almighty has blessed the mission of the Promised Messiah (as) so much his devotees are found today in every part of the world

فالحمد لله على ذلك

[All praise is due to Allah for all of this]. (Tadhkirah, Page 1008-1009)

Testimony of Sanaullah Amritsari:

“Alas! We write these lines with the greatest regrets and a painful heart. But what else can we do when we must admit the truth? We were indeed, concerned, when we saw that Mirza had published his Will in which he stated that it had been revealed to him that his life was going to end very soon and some people will feel relieved that a certain person has departed from this world. We did not want this to happen so soon, hoping that God Almighty would leave him to flounder in his transgression. But, we expected this to happen soon, as had been announced by Dr Abdul Hakeem of Patiala. The doctor had stated “My revelation concerning Mirza of Qadian, which may kindly be published, is that 1)The Mirza will die on the 21st day of Saavan, 1965 (4thAugust, 1908) of a fatal disease. 2) A distinguished woman of the family of Mirza shall also die [Weekly Ahle Hadees :15.4.1908] However we cannot refrain from saying what is true. Had the doctor STOPPED at what he had stated before, that is, his prediction of Mirza’s death within fourteen months and not fixed a specific date as he has done then those objections could have never been raised as are being raised today by the Paisa Akhbar of the 27th, wherein it is stated that had the prophecy been left as “up to the 21st of Saavan” and not altered to “on the 21st of Saavan” it would have, indeed, been wonderful. But alas, his revelation that Mirza will die on the 21st of Saavan, that is the 4th of August, has been published in the Ahle Hadees issue of 15thMay, 1908. We wish that he would have left his earlier revelations unaltered, without giving a specific date. Then there could have been no excuse” (Ahle Hadees, 12th June 1908)



Did Allah Not Know?

Adnan Rashid and the opponents often deceive with the question that ‘Did Allah not Know?’ We will answer this question from the Qur’an itself:

وَلَمَّا وَقَعَ عَلَيْهِمُ الرِّجْزُ قَالُوا يَا مُوسَى ادْعُ لَنَا رَبَّكَ بِمَا عَهِدَ عِنْدَكَ ۖ لَئِنْ كَشَفْتَ عَنَّا الرِّجْزَ لَنُؤْمِنَنَّ لَكَ وَلَنُرْسِلَنَّ مَعَكَ بَنِي إِسْرَائِيلَ {135} فَلَمَّا كَشَفْنَا عَنْهُمُ الرِّجْزَ إِلَىٰ أَجَلٍ هُمْ بَالِغُوهُ إِذَا هُمْ يَنْكُثُونَ {136}

And when there fell upon them the punishment, they said, ‘O Moses, pray for us to thy Lord according to that which He has promised to thee. If thou remove from us the punishment, we will surely believe in thee and we will surely send with thee the children of Israel.’ But when We removed from them the punishment for a term which they were to reach, lo! they broke their promise. (Chapter 7, Verses 135-136)

In these verses, Bani Israel asked Hadrat Musas (as) to pray that the punishment is removed from them. Then Allah States that when He removed the punishment for a term, they broke their promise. Did Allah not know they will break their promise? Allah did know. However, despite this, Allah Granted them respite and a chance to turn back to the truth. Allah speaks based on the condition of the people despite knowing what will happen. Allah Tests the people and gives them many chances.

Regarding Abdul Hakim Patiala, Hadrat Ahmad (as) made it clear that these prophecies of the fourteen months are only in response to Abdul Hakim’s prophecies :

The Promised Messiah (as) stated in response: In response to his prophecy, Allah the Almighty has conveyed to me that he himself would be cast into torment and Allah will annihilate him and I shall remain secure from his mischief. [Chashma-e-Ma‘rifat, p. 322, Ruhani Khaza’in, vol. 23, p. 337]

The key words are that Hadrat Ahmad (as) said that these prophecies were in response to his prophecies that Hadrat Ahmad (as) would pass away by August 4, 1908.

فَإِذَا رَكِبُوا فِي الْفُلْكِ دَعَوُا اللَّهَ مُخْلِصِينَ لَهُ الدِّينَ فَلَمَّا نَجَّاهُمْ إِلَى الْبَرِّ إِذَا هُمْ يُشْرِكُونَ

And when they go on board a ship, they call on Allah, with sincere and exclusive faith in Him. But when He brings them safe to land, behold, they associate partners with Him (Chapter 29, verse 66)

In this verse, Allah also forgave the idolaters even though He knew they would turn back.

Then Allah Decreed that Musa (as) and his people will enter Baitul Maqdis. However, because they disobeyed and did not fight with Hadrat Musa (as), Allah changed the decree despite the earlier promise:

يَا قَوْمِ ادْخُلُوا الْأَرْضَ الْمُقَدَّسَةَ الَّتِي كَتَبَ اللَّهُ لَكُمْ وَلَا تَرْتَدُّوا عَلَىٰ أَدْبَارِكُمْ فَتَنْقَلِبُوا خَاسِرِينَ

‘O my people, enter the Holy Land which Allah has ordained for you and do not turn back, for then you will turn losers.’ (Chapter 5, Verse 22)

قَالَ رَجُلَانِ مِنَ الَّذِينَ يَخَافُونَ أَنْعَمَ اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِمَا ادْخُلُوا عَلَيْهِمُ الْبَابَ فَإِذَا دَخَلْتُمُوهُ فَإِنَّكُمْ غَالِبُونَ ۚ وَعَلَى اللَّهِ فَتَوَكَّلُوا إِنْ كُنْتُمْ مُؤْمِنِينَ {24}

قَالُوا يَا مُوسَىٰ إِنَّا لَنْ نَدْخُلَهَا أَبَدًا مَا دَامُوا فِيهَا ۖ فَاذْهَبْ أَنْتَ وَرَبُّكَ فَقَاتِلَا إِنَّا هَاهُنَا قَاعِدُونَ {25}

قَالَ رَبِّ إِنِّي لَا أَمْلِكُ إِلَّا نَفْسِي وَأَخِي ۖ فَافْرُقْ بَيْنَنَا وَبَيْنَ الْقَوْمِ الْفَاسِقِينَ {26}

قَالَ فَإِنَّهَا مُحَرَّمَةٌ عَلَيْهِمْ ۛ أَرْبَعِينَ سَنَةً ۛ يَتِيهُونَ فِي الْأَرْضِ ۚ فَلَا تَأْسَ عَلَى الْقَوْمِ الْفَاسِقِينَ {27}

Thereupon two men from among those who feared their Lord, on whom Allah had conferred His favour, said, ‘Enter the gate, advancing against them; when once you have entered it, then surely you will be victorious. And put your trust in Allah, if you are believers.’ They said, ‘O Moses, we will never enter it so long as they remain in it. Therefore, go thou and thy Lord and fight, and here we sit.’ He said, ‘My Lord, I have power over none but myself and my brother; therefore make Thou a distinction between us and the rebellious people.’

God said: ‘Verily, it shall be forbidden them for forty years; in distraction shall they wander through the land. So grieve not over the rebellious people.’ (Chapter 5, Verses 24-27)

Then we have the prophecy made by Hadrat Yunus (as) regarding the punishment of his people. Allah told Hadrat Yunus (as) that they would be destroyed. However, these people repented and were not destroyed. Did Allah not know that they would repent?

فَلَوْلَا كَانَتْ قَرْيَةٌ آمَنَتْ فَنَفَعَهَا إِيمَانُهَا إِلَّا قَوْمَ يُونُسَ لَمَّا آمَنُوا كَشَفْنَا عَنْهُمْ عَذَابَ الْخِزْيِ فِي الْحَيَاةِ الدُّنْيَا وَمَتَّعْنَاهُمْ إِلَىٰ حِينٍ

Why was there no other people, save the people of Jonah, who should have believed so that their belief would have profited them? When they believed, We removed from them the punishment of disgrace in the present life, and We gave them provision for a while. (Surah Yunus verse 99)

If the Qur’an disagreed with the Bible on what happened, it would correct it and not repeat the same points. Hadrat Ibn Hajr (rh) writes:

رَوَى قِصَّتَهُ السُّدِّيُّ فِي تَفْسِيره بأسانيده عَن بن مَسْعُودٍ وَغَيْرِهِ إِنَّ اللَّهَ بَعَثَ يُونُسَ إِلَى أَهْلِ نِينَوَى وَهِيَ مِنْ أَرْضِ الْمَوْصِلِ فَكَذَّبُوهُ فَوَعَدَهُمْ بِنُزُولِ الْعَذَابِ فِي وَقْتٍ مُعَيَّنٍ وَخَرَجَ عَنْهُمْ مُغَاضِبًا لَهُمْ فَلَمَّا رَأَوْا آثَارَ ذَلِكَ خَضَعُوا وَتَضَرَّعُوا وَآمَنُوا فَرَحِمَهُمُ اللَّهُ فَكَشَفَ عَنْهُمُ الْعَذَابَ

“His story was narrated by al-Suddi in his commentary with the isnaad of narrators from Ibn Masud and others that Allah sent Yunus (as) to the people of Nineveh, which is from the Land of Mosul. They rejected him, and he promised them that the punishment would descend at a specific time and he left them in anger and when they saw the signs, they submitted to Allah and they grew humble and they believed so Allah had mercy on them and removed the punishment from them” (Fathul Bari, vol. 6,  p. 452)

Then we have the famous incident Sunni Muslims believe in regarding the angel of death and Musa (as). Allah only sends the angels by his command:

يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا قُوا أَنْفُسَكُمْ وَأَهْلِيكُمْ نَارًا وَقُودُهَا النَّاسُ وَالْحِجَارَةُ عَلَيْهَا مَلَائِكَةٌ غِلَاظٌ شِدَادٌ لَا يَعْصُونَ اللَّهَ مَا أَمَرَهُمْ وَيَفْعَلُونَ مَا يُؤْمَرُونَ

O ye who believe! save yourselves and your families from a Fire whose fuel is men and stones, over which are appointed angels, stern and severe, who disobey not Allah in what He commands them and do as they are commanded. (Chapter 66 verse 7)

Did Allah not know Musa (as) would punch the angel and not die that following year? Allah still sent the angel according to Sunni Muslims:

حَدَّثَنَا مَحْمُودٌ، حَدَّثَنَا عَبْدُ الرَّزَّاقِ، أَخْبَرَنَا مَعْمَرٌ، عَنِ ابْنِ طَاوُسٍ، عَنْ أَبِيهِ، عَنْ أَبِي هُرَيْرَةَ ـ رضى الله عنه ـ قَالَ ‏”‏ أُرْسِلَ مَلَكُ الْمَوْتِ إِلَى مُوسَى ـ عَلَيْهِمَا السَّلاَمُ ـ فَلَمَّا جَاءَهُ صَكَّهُ فَرَجَعَ إِلَى رَبِّهِ فَقَالَ أَرْسَلْتَنِي إِلَى عَبْدٍ لاَ يُرِيدُ الْمَوْتَ‏.‏ فَرَدَّ اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ عَيْنَهُ وَقَالَ ارْجِعْ فَقُلْ لَهُ يَضَعُ يَدَهُ عَلَى مَتْنِ ثَوْرٍ، فَلَهُ بِكُلِّ مَا غَطَّتْ بِهِ يَدُهُ بِكُلِّ شَعْرَةٍ سَنَةٌ‏.‏ قَالَ أَىْ رَبِّ، ثُمَّ مَاذَا قَالَ ثُمَّ الْمَوْتُ‏.‏ قَالَ فَالآنَ‏.‏ فَسَأَلَ اللَّهَ أَنْ يُدْنِيَهُ مِنَ الأَرْضِ الْمُقَدَّسَةِ رَمْيَةً بِحَجَرٍ ‏”‏‏.‏ قَالَ قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم ‏”‏ فَلَوْ كُنْتُ ثَمَّ لأَرَيْتُكُمْ قَبْرَهُ إِلَى جَانِبِ الطَّرِيقِ عِنْدَ الْكَثِيبِ الأَحْمَرِ ‏”‏‏.‏

Narrated Abu Huraira: The angel of death was sent to Moses and when he went to him, Moses slapped him severely, spoiling one of his eyes. The angel went back to his Lord, and said, “You sent me to a slave who does not want to die.” Allah restored his eye and said, “Go back and tell him (i.e. Moses) to place his hand over the back of an ox, for he will be allowed to live for a number of years equal to the number of hairs coming under his hand.” (So the angel came to him and told him the same). Then Moses asked, “O my Lord! What will be then?” He said, “Death will be then.” He said, “(Let it be) now.” He asked Allah that He bring him near the Sacred Land at a distance of a stone’s throw. Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) said, “Were I there I would show you the grave of Moses by the way near the red sand hill.” (Sahih al-Bukhari, Hadith #1339)

Then Allah sent Gabriel (as) and made him promise the Prophet Muhammad (sa) to return the next day but this did not happen because there was a picture in the house of the Prophet (sa). Does it mean that Allah did not know this would happen?

حَدَّثَنَا يَحْيَى بْنُ سُلَيْمَانَ، قَالَ حَدَّثَنِي ابْنُ وَهْبٍ، قَالَ حَدَّثَنِي عُمَرُ ـ هُوَ ابْنُ مُحَمَّدٍ ـ عَنْ سَالِمٍ، عَنْ أَبِيهِ، قَالَ وَعَدَ النَّبِيَّ صلى الله عليه وسلم جِبْرِيلُ فَرَاثَ عَلَيْهِ حَتَّى اشْتَدَّ عَلَى النَّبِيِّ صلى الله عليه وسلم فَخَرَجَ النَّبِيُّ صلى الله عليه وسلم فَلَقِيَهُ، فَشَكَا إِلَيْهِ مَا وَجَدَ، فَقَالَ لَهُ ‏ “‏ إِنَّا لاَ نَدْخُلُ بَيْتًا فِيهِ صُورَةٌ وَلاَ كَلْبٌ ‏”‏‏.‏

Narrated Salim’s father: Once Gabriel promised to visit the Prophet (ﷺ) but he delayed and the Prophet (ﷺ) got worried about that. At last he came out and found Gabriel and complained to him of his grief (for his delay). Gabriel said to him, “We do not enter a place in which there is a picture or a dog.” (Sahih al-Bukhari, Hadith #5960)

Then regarding the companions of Badr, the Prophet Muhammad (sa) said that Allah said do what you like you are forgiven. However, among them was Mista who accused Hadrat Aisha (ra) of adultery. Did Allah not know He would do this? Regarding the people of Badr, the Prophet (sa) said Allah told him:

لَعَلَّ اللَّهَ اطَّلَعَ إِلَى أَهْلِ بَدْرٍ فَقَالَ اعْمَلُوا مَا شِئْتُمْ فَقَدْ وَجَبَتْ لَكُمُ الْجَنَّةُ، أَوْ فَقَدْ غَفَرْتُ لَكُمْ

Prophet (ﷺ) said, “Is he not one of the Badr warriors? May be Allah looked at the Badr warriors and said, ‘Do whatever you like, as I have granted Paradise to you, or said, ‘I have forgiven you.”‘ (Sahih al-Bukhari, Hadith #3983)

Mistah was the one who accused Hadrat Aisha (ra) of adultery:

حَدَّثَنَا الْحَجَّاجُ بْنُ مِنْهَالٍ، حَدَّثَنَا عَبْدُ اللَّهِ بْنُ عُمَرَ النُّمَيْرِيُّ، حَدَّثَنَا يُونُسُ بْنُ يَزِيدَ، قَالَ سَمِعْتُ الزُّهْرِيَّ، قَالَ سَمِعْتُ عُرْوَةَ بْنَ الزُّبَيْرِ، وَسَعِيدَ بْنَ الْمُسَيَّبِ، وَعَلْقَمَةَ بْنَ وَقَّاصٍ، وَعُبَيْدَ اللَّهِ بْنَ عَبْدِ اللَّهِ، عَنْ حَدِيثِ، عَائِشَةَ ـ رضى الله عنها ـ زَوْجِ النَّبِيِّ صلى الله عليه وسلم كُلٌّ ـ حَدَّثَنِي طَائِفَةً مِنَ الْحَدِيثِ ـ قَالَتْ فَأَقْبَلْتُ أَنَا وَأُمُّ مِسْطَحٍ فَعَثَرَتْ أُمُّ مِسْطَحٍ فِي مِرْطِهَا فَقَالَتْ تَعِسَ مِسْطَحٌ‏.‏ فَقُلْتُ بِئْسَ مَا قُلْتِ، تَسُبِّينَ رَجُلاً شَهِدَ بَدْرًا فَذَكَرَ حَدِيثَ الإِفْكِ‏.

‏ I heard Az-Zuhri saying, “I heard `Urwa bin Az-Zubair. Sa`id bin Al-Musaiyab, ‘Alqama bin Waqqas and ‘Ubaidullah bin `Abdullah each narrating part of the narrative concerning `Aisha the wife of the Prophet. `Aisha said: When I and Um Mistah were returning, Um Mistah stumbled by treading on the end of her robe, and on that she said, ‘May Mistah be ruined.’ I said, ‘You have said a bad thing, you curse a man who took part in the battle of Badr!.” Az-Zuhri then narrated the narration of the Lie (forged against `Aisha). (Sahih al-Bukhari, Hadith #4025)

Despite being among those whom Allah had forgiven, Mista was punished. Did Allah not know he would act against the teachings of Islam?

According to some narrations, Hazrat Mistah(ra) was amongst those people who raised the allegation against Hazrat Aisha(ra) and was thus instructed to be punished with lashes by the Holy Prophet(sa). (Al-Isabatu Fi Tamyiz Al-Sahaba, Vol. 6, p. 74, Mistah bin Uthathah, Dar-ul-Kutub al-Ilmiyyah, Beirut, 1995)

Next I share the example from Mujadid Alf Thani (rh), the Mujadid of many of the Muslims. He mentions many important points about some taqdir-e-mubram examples which can be changed and mentions a hadith of the Prophet Muhammad (sa) who said a boy would die but he gave sadqah and didn’t end up dying. Did Allah not know that the boy would give sadqa?





The next example I share is of Hadrat Isa (as) who said to his disciples that this person will die so make sure to come to his funeral. He didn’t end up dying and then Jibrael (as) came. Hadrat Isa (as) said that you told me he will die and he didn’t die. Jibrael (as) said he gave sadqah so he didn’t die. These incidents are in their own books.



There is a famous hadith of Sahih al-Bukhari in which it is written:

‏ أَوَّلُ جَيْشٍ مِنْ أُمَّتِي يَغْزُونَ الْبَحْرَ قَدْ أَوْجَبُوا ‏”‏‏.‏ قَالَتْ أُمُّ حَرَامٍ قُلْتُ يَا رَسُولَ اللَّهِ أَنَا فِيهِمْ‏.‏ قَالَ ‏”‏ أَنْتِ فِيهِمْ ‏”‏‏.‏ ثُمَّ قَالَ النَّبِيُّ صلى الله عليه وسلم ‏”‏ أَوَّلُ جَيْشٍ مِنْ أُمَّتِي يَغْزُونَ مَدِينَةَ قَيْصَرَ مَغْفُورٌ لَهُمْ ‏”‏‏.‏ فَقُلْتُ أَنَا فِيهِمْ يَا رَسُولَ اللَّهِ‏.‏ قَالَ ‏”‏ لاَ ‏”‏‏.‏

‘The first army amongst’ my followers who will invade Caesar’s City will be forgiven their sins.’ I asked, ‘Will I be one of them, O Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ)?’ He replied in the negative. (Sahih al-Bukhari, Hadith #2924)

Regarding those who are forgiven, the second group was lead by Yazid bin Muawiya. Ibn Hajr (rh) mentions a few points:

a)Majority of them will be forgiven like the sahaba

b) It is condition, such people are forgiven as long as they do not do a bad deed



Imam Badruddin al-Aini (rh) writes: “If Yazid did join the army, even then because of his later crimes, he has been excluded from this glad tiding. For this reason, the ‘Ulama (scholars) of the Ummah agree that the words, “they are forgiven” implies that provided they are worthy of being forgiven.”



The revelation and statements of the Prophets are based on the conditions in which they are mentioned and if the person changes, the prophecy can change. Yunus (as)’s people repented, the punishment was averted. The Promised Messiah (as) having his life extended was only in response to the prediction of Abdul Hakim Patiala but Abdul Hakim himself abrogated that prophecy and made a new one to which Allah the Almighty gave a different response.

The Promised Messiah (as) was already receiving revelations about his demise. Abdul Hakim Patiala changing his prediction already proved he was a liar and fabricator. The lengthening of life was only as a response to the fabrications of Abdul Hakim which he himself abrogated.

The prophecies must be looked in their context. There is yet another example we can use for such allegations. There was a person named Ubaidullah who was married to Umm Habiba (ra). He was among the foremost Muslims (sabiqun al-awalun) and Allah stated He was pleased with him. However, when he went to Abyssinia, he became Christian and died a Christian – he apostatized Islam. Hazrat Umm Habiba (ra) later married the Prophet Muhammad (sa). It is narrated:

“And among them is his son-in-law, the husband of Umm Habiba (ra), and he is Abdullah bin Jahsh. He embraced Islam and emigrated to Abyssinia and died as a Christian and then the Prophet Muhammad (sa) married Umm Habiba (ra) after this.” (Umdatul Qari, Vol. 18, p. 145)

According to the logic of the anti-Ahmadis, he couldn’t become an apostate because Allah the Almighty had already revealed regarding him that Allah was pleased with him and he was pleased with Allah.



If Adnan Rashid was alive during the life of Prophet Muhammad (sa), he would probably apostate when the Prophet Muhammad (sa) passed away before the Christians of Najran who he did Mubahalah with.

The mubahalah wasn’t in effect, so why would he (sa) have to outlive them? We see the same here. Abdul Hakim changed his prophecy to a specific date. The age increasing was only regarding that as the prophecies clearly state.




People of the Elephant

Some quote the revelation where Hadrat Ahmad (as) was revealed words of Surah al-Fil and that Abdul Hakim would be destroyed in front of him. Firstly, the context is with the same prophecy of the fourteen-month life increasing. Secondly, this would most certainly happen but because Abdul Hakim himself humiliated himself by setting a specific date, Allah made the Promised Messiah (as) himself write that Allah will protect me from his evil and this was fulfilled. If Abdul Hakim kept his prophecy the same, the age of the Messiah would have continued to increase.
