Qur’an Is God’s Book and Words of my Mouth?

This allegation is also out of context from a long revelation of Ahmadas. Allah is referring to Himself rather than to Ahmadas. This is clarified by the Messiah himself in Al-Badr Volume 6, Number 28, July 11,1907 Page 6. Ahmadas says that he was asked about who the subject is and he said it refers to Allah and the words of Allah’s mouth. We will give the entire revelation and then provide the explanation of Ahmadas himself.


” [Persian] Now come forward and go forth, as your time is near. The time is now coming that the people of Muhammad will be lifted from the pit and their steps will be planted firmly on a strong tower. [English translation of Urdu] The holy Muhammad the Chosen one, Chief of the Prophets. God will set all your affairs right and will bestow upon you all that you desire. The Lord of hosts will turn His attention towards this. The purpose of this Sign is that the Holy Qur’an is the Book of God and is the word of My mouth. The gate of Lord God’s bounties is open and His holy mercies are directed towards this. [English] The days shall come when God shall help you. Glory be to this Lord God, Maker of earth and heaven. [English translation of Urdu] The days shall come when God shall help you. [English translation of Persian] God of Glory, Maker of earth and heaven.” (Barahin-e-Ahmadiyyah, Part 4, Pages 521-522, Sub Footnote 3, Ruhani Khazain, Volume 1, Page 623, Sub Footnote 3)


Firstly this is not just one revelation rather many different revelations which Ahmadas recorded. Here is the incident which was mentioned earlier of someone asking Ahmadas about this:


” The Promised Messiahas was asked who is the subject indicated by the word My in the revelation: The Holy Qu’ran is the Book of God and is the word of My mouth i.e., whose mouth is referred to. He said It means the words of Allah’s mouth. Allah the Almighty has said: ‘The words of My mouth.’ There are instances in the Holy Qur’an where different pronouns are used for the same subjects” (Badr, Volume 6, No. 28, July 11, 1907, Page 6)


Allah States in the Qur’an:


إِيَّاكَ نَعْبُدُ وَإِيَّاكَ نَسْتَعِينُ {5}


Thee alone do we worship and Thee alone do we implore for help (Chapter 1 verse 5)


Now would the non Ahmadi Muslims say that this means Allah is saying that He only worships Muhammadsaw and implores him for help? Of course not. Anyone with even a little bit of Quranic understand would agree that this is not what the Qur’an states nor what the revelation of Ahmadas meant.


Allah States:


وَاللَّهُ الَّذِي أَرْسَلَ الرِّيَاحَ فَتُثِيرُ سَحَابًا فَسُقْنَاهُ إِلَىٰ بَلَدٍ مَيِّتٍ فَأَحْيَيْنَا بِهِ الْأَرْضَ بَعْدَ مَوْتِهَا ۚ كَذَٰلِكَ النُّشُورُ {10}


And Allah it is Who sends the winds which raise the clouds; then do We drive them to a lifeless tract of land, and quicken thereby the earth after its death. Likewise shall the Resurrection be.(Chapter 35 Verse 10)


Allah States that He “sends the winds, betrays the clows then do we drive them to a lifeless track of land then quicken by their earth by its death likewie the ressurrection be”. It begins with Allah in the third person by saying “Allah it is who sends the winds” but then it switches to the third person stating “we drive them” so the allegation is not only on Ahmadas but Allah himself.
