Buried with The Prophet

Buried with The Prophet

The Holy Prophet Muhammadsaw made a clear prophesy in regards to the Promised Messiahas and him being buried with him, in a spiritual sense.


Hesaw prophesied:


فيدفن معى في قبرى


He will be buried with me, in my grave (Mishkat)


Hadhrat Ahmadas stated:


“The prophecy that after his demise, the Promised Messiah will enter the grave of the Holy Prophetsaw could not mean that, God forbid, the grave of the Holy Prophetsaw will be exhumed. These are fallacies, full of insolence and disrespect, of these people who think only material thoughts. What it means is that in his station of nearness he will be so close to the Holy Prophetsaw, that after death he will be granted the station of being closest to the Holy Prophetsaw and the Promised Messiah’s soul will unite with the soul of the Holy Prophetsaw as though they were both in one grave. This is the true meaning but anyone can imagine whatever other meaning they like. The spiritual people do know that after death, physical nearness has no relevance. Everyone who has any spiritual nearness to the Holy Prophetsaw, his soul is brought near to the Holy Prophetsaw as Allah States in the Holy Qur’an:


فَادْخُلِي فِي عِبَادِي {30} وَادْخُلِي جَنَّتِي {31}


The prophecy that he will not be killed indicates that letting the final Caliph killed would be a cause for disgrace to Islam. For the same reason, the Holy Prophetsaw was saved from being killed”(Haqiqatul Wahi, Ruhani Khazain, Volume 22, Pages 320-326)


Hadhrat Ahmadas also stated:


“Approach God with sincere hearts, and pure tongues, eyes and ears, for He will then accept you. What God requires of you, in the matter of belief, is that God is One and that Muhammad, peace and blessings of Allah be upon him, is His Prophet and Khatam-ul-Anbiya [the Seal of Prophets] and that he is the greatest of them all. After him there is no Prophet except one who is cloaked in the mantle of Muhammadsaw, by way of reflection. For a servant cannot be separated from his master, nor is a branch separable from its root. Thus, one who completely annihilates himself for his master is bestowed with the title of Nabi [Prophet] by God. Such a one does not break the seal of prophethood. When you look into a mirror, although there seems to be two, in reality there is only one. The distinction exists between that which is real and its reflection. Such is the will of God with respect to the Promised Messiah. This is also the secret behind the saying of the Holy Prophet, peace and blessings of Allah be upon him, when he stated: ‘The Promised Messiah would be buried in my grave; meaning, he and I are the same and completely identical.’ (Noah’s Ark, Pages 27-28)


This prophecy also shows that the Promised Messiahas was not to be killed, and would have a similar death to the Holy Prophetsaw. We see this fulfilled as Hadhrat Ahmadas died a natural death, and both prophets went in and out of consciousness before passing away.
