Descend Near Qadian

The revelation which the non Ahmadi Muslims accuse of Ahmadas is as follows:


That is [Arabic] We have caused these Signs and wonders and this revelation filled with points of wisdom and verity, to descend near Qadian. We have sent it down to satisfy a real need and it has descended to satisfy the real need. The prophecy of Allah and His Messenger has been fulfilled at its duly appointed time. Allah’s command was bound to be carried out.


Ahmadas himself stated in regards to the last portion of the revelation:


“The last portion of the revelation indicates that the Holy Prophet, may peace and blessings of Allah be upon him, had mentioned the appearance of this person in his hadith…and that God Almighty has also made reference to this in His Holy Word. The indication [by the Holy Prophetsa] has been mentioned among the revelations set out in part 3 and the indication in the Holy Qur’an is in the following verse:


He it is Who sent His Messenger with guidance and the Religion of Truth, that He might make it prevail over every other religion.” (al-Taubah, 9:33; al-Fath, 48:29; al-Saff, 61:10) (Brahin-e-Ahmadiyyah, Part 4, Page 498, Sub footnote, Ruhani Khazain, Volume 1, Page 593, Sub Footnote)


The non Ahmadi Muslims sadly twist this revelation as well and ignore the words of Ahmadas. He explains it beautifully and there is no room for accusation on this beautiful revelation. He states:


” Deep reflection on this revelation shows that the reference to Qadian in the revelation indicates that my appearance in Qadian had been foretold in previous scriptures. Now that this new revelation has shown that in Allah’s estimation Qadian resembles Damascus, the meanings of the earlier revelation has been clarified.… The interpretation is:


[Arabic] [We have sent it down close to Damascus on eastern side near the White Minaret.] It is to be noted that my place of residence is on the eastern edge of Qadian.” (Izala-e-Auham, Pages 73-75 Footnote, Ruhani Khazain, Volume 3, Pages 138-139)




” The Sahih Muslim relates that the Messiah would descend near the white Minaret in the east of Damascus…. It has been disclosed to me by Allah that the interpretation of Damascus in this context is a town the dwellers of which have the temper of Yazid and the habits and thoughts of the wretched Yazid… It has been conveyed to me that by Damascus, therefore, is meant the place which possesses this well known characteristic of Damascus. By specifying Damascus as the place of the appearance of the Messiah, Allah the Almighty has indicated that by the [word] Messiah is not meant the first Messiah to whom the Gospel was revealed, but it refers to someone from among the Muslims who, in his spiritual aspect, would resemble the Messiah [Jesus] and also Imam Husain, for Damascus is the capital of Yazid and is the centre of the Yazidis from which proceeded thousands of tyrannical commands…. God Almighty, therefore, mentioned Damascus specifically for the purpose of indicating that whereas Damascus was the source of such tyrannical commands and was the city of such hard-hearted and black-minded people, now a city like Damascus will become the headquarters for spreading justice and faith, for most Prophets have appeared in towns whose people were wrongdoers and yet God has been converting the accursed places into homes of blessings. (Izala-e-Auham, pp. 63–70 footnote, Ruhani Khaza’in, vol. 3, pp. 134–136 footnote)
