Treated Like All Prophets

Treated Like All Prophets

According to the Holy Qur’an, all prophets are mocked. Allah has Beautifully explained to us what Prophets go through and in what way they are mocked. When we look at the life of Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmadas, it becomes evident that he went through the exact same. Allah Himself has told us that the Prophets are mocked in similar ways:


مَا يُقَالُ لَكَ إِلَّا مَا قَدْ قِيلَ لِلرُّسُلِ مِنْ قَبْلِكَ ۚ إِنَّ رَبَّكَ لَذُو مَغْفِرَةٍ وَذُو عِقَابٍ أَلِيمٍ{44}


Nothing is said to thee but what was said to the Messengers before thee. Thy Lord is indeed the Master of forgiveness; and also the Master of painful chastisement. (Chapter 41 Verse 44)


Firstly, Prophets are mocked and accused of being agents who are getting help from other people, rather than Allah. Allah States:


قَالُوا يَا شُعَيْبُ مَا نَفْقَهُ كَثِيرًا مِمَّا تَقُولُ وَإِنَّا لَنَرَاكَ فِينَا ضَعِيفًا ۖ وَلَوْلَا رَهْطُكَ لَرَجَمْنَاكَ ۖ وَمَا أَنْتَ عَلَيْنَا بِعَزِيزٍ {92} قَالَ يَا قَوْمِ أَرَهْطِي أَعَزُّ عَلَيْكُمْ مِنَ اللَّهِ وَاتَّخَذْتُمُوهُ وَرَاءَكُمْ ظِهْرِيًّا ۖ إِنَّ رَبِّي بِمَا تَعْمَلُونَ مُحِيطٌ {93}


They replied, ‘O Shu‘aib, we do not understand much of that which thou sayest, and surely, we see that thou art weak among us. And were it not for thy tribe, we would surely stone thee. And thou holdest no strong position among us.’ He said, ‘O my people, is my tribe mightier with you than Allah? And you have cast Him behind your backs as neglected. Surely, my Lord encompasses all that you do. (Chapter 11 Verses 92-93)


Allah Also States:


وَقَالَ الَّذِينَ كَفَرُوا إِنْ هَٰذَا إِلَّا إِفْكٌ افْتَرَاهُ وَأَعَانَهُ عَلَيْهِ قَوْمٌ آخَرُونَ ۖ فَقَدْ جَاءُوا ظُلْمًا وَزُورًا {5} وَقَالُوا أَسَاطِيرُ الْأَوَّلِينَ اكْتَتَبَهَا فَهِيَ تُمْلَىٰ عَلَيْهِ بُكْرَةً وَأَصِيلًا {6}


And those who disbelieve say, ‘It is naught but a lie which he has forged, and other people have helped him with it.’ Indeed, they have brought forth an injustice and an untruth.And they say, ‘These are fables of the ancients; and he has got them written down, and they are dictated to him morning and evening.’ (Chapter 25 Verses 5-6)


In the same way the Promised Messiahas is mocked and still sadly called a British agent, for no reason at all. This is a typical allegation against the Prophets of Allah.


The Prophet of Allah recieves revelation of the unseen and makes many prophesies and none of the prophecies fail. Allah states:


عَالِمُ الْغَيْبِ فَلَا يُظْهِرُ عَلَىٰ غَيْبِهِ أَحَدًا {27} إِلَّا مَنِ ارْتَضَىٰ مِنْ رَسُولٍ فَإِنَّهُ يَسْلُكُ مِنْ بَيْنِ يَدَيْهِ وَمِنْ خَلْفِهِ رَصَدًا {28}


He is the Knower of the unseen; and He reveals not His secrets to any one,  Except to him whom He chooses, namely a Messenger of His. And then He causes an escort of guarding angels to go before him and behind him, (Chapter 72 Verses 27-28)


The Prophets are always asked for the signs of previous prophets. For example, despite Isaas reviving the dead spiritually, people would ask Ahmadasto do the exact same.


وَإِذَا جَاءَتْهُمْ آيَةٌ قَالُوا لَنْ نُؤْمِنَ حَتَّىٰ نُؤْتَىٰ مِثْلَ مَا أُوتِيَ رُسُلُ اللَّهِ ۘ اللَّهُ أَعْلَمُ حَيْثُ يَجْعَلُ رِسَالَتَهُ ۗ سَيُصِيبُ الَّذِينَ أَجْرَمُوا صَغَارٌ عِنْدَ اللَّهِ وَعَذَابٌ شَدِيدٌ بِمَا كَانُوا يَمْكُرُونَ{125}


And when there comes to them a Sign, they say, ‘We will not believe until we are given the like of that which Allah’s Messengers have been given.’ Allah knows best where to place His Message. Surely, humiliation before Allah and a severe punishment shall smite the offenders because of their plotting.(Chapter 6 Verse 125)


The Prophets are also accused of being mad poets:


وَيَقُولُونَ أَئِنَّا لَتَارِكُو آلِهَتِنَا لِشَاعِرٍ مَجْنُونٍ {37}


” And said, ‘Shall we give up our gods for a mad poet?’(Chapter 37 Verse 37)


Furthermore, the disbelievers say similar things and mock in similar ways. Allah States:


وَقَالَ الَّذِينَ لَا يَعْلَمُونَ لَوْلَا يُكَلِّمُنَا اللَّهُ أَوْ تَأْتِينَا آيَةٌ ۗ كَذَٰلِكَ قَالَ الَّذِينَ مِنْ قَبْلِهِمْ مِثْلَ قَوْلِهِمْ ۘ تَشَابَهَتْ قُلُوبُهُمْ ۗ قَدْ بَيَّنَّا الْآيَاتِ لِقَوْمٍ يُوقِنُونَ {119}


And those who have no knowledge say, ‘Why does not Allah speak to us, or a Sign come to us?’ Likewise said those before them similar to their saying. Their hearts are alike. We have certainly made the Signs plain for a people who firmly believe. (Chapter 2 Verse 119)


كَذَٰلِكَ مَا أَتَى الَّذِينَ مِنْ قَبْلِهِمْ مِنْ رَسُولٍ إِلَّا قَالُوا سَاحِرٌ أَوْ مَجْنُونٌ {53} أَتَوَاصَوْا بِهِ ۚ بَلْ هُمْ قَوْمٌ طَاغُونَ {54}


Even so there came no Messenger to those before them, but they said, ‘A sorcerer, or a madman!’ Have they made it a legacy to one another? Nay, they are all a rebellious people. (Chapter 51, Verses 53-54)


وَلَقَدِ اسْتُهْزِئَ بِرُسُلٍ مِنْ قَبْلِكَ فَحَاقَ بِالَّذِينَ سَخِرُوا مِنْهُمْ مَا كَانُوا بِهِ يَسْتَهْزِئُونَ{11}


And surely have the Messengers been mocked at before thee, but that which they mocked at encompassed those of them who scoffed. (Chapter 6 Verse 11)


وَلَقَدِ اسْتُهْزِئَ بِرُسُلٍ مِنْ قَبْلِكَ فَأَمْلَيْتُ لِلَّذِينَ كَفَرُوا ثُمَّ أَخَذْتُهُمْ ۖ فَكَيْفَ كَانَ عِقَابِ {33}


And surely, Messengers have been mocked at before thee; but I granted respite to those who disbelieved. Then I seized them, and how was then My punishment!(Chapter 13 Verse 33)


وَمَا يَأْتِيهِمْ مِنْ رَسُولٍ إِلَّا كَانُوا بِهِ يَسْتَهْزِئُونَ{12}


And there never came to them any Messenger but they mocked at him.” (Chapter 15 Verse 12)


Allah Has repeatedly Told us that all Messengers are mocked, but sadly today the Muslims believe that the Prophet who they await would be accepted by the entire world.Another sign of the Prophet is that he becomes the one whom the believers turn to at first. Allah States:


قَالُوا يَا صَالِحُ قَدْ كُنْتَ فِينَا مَرْجُوًّا قَبْلَ هَٰذَا ۖ أَتَنْهَانَا أَنْ نَعْبُدَ مَا يَعْبُدُ آبَاؤُنَا وَإِنَّنَا لَفِي شَكٍّ مِمَّا تَدْعُونَا إِلَيْهِ مُرِيبٍ {63}


They said, ‘O Salih, thou wast among us one in whom we placed our hopes. Dost thou forbid us to worship what our fathers worshipped? And we are surely in disquieting doubt concerning that to which thou callest us. (Chapter 11 Verse 63)


We see a similar case with Ahmadas. When Islam was being attacked, everyone turned to him. When the Christians challenged the Muslims, the Muslims turned to Ahmadas to debate Abdullah Atham. Here is a statement of Maulvi Irshad Ali of Nagpur, who stated:


” The Christian missionary Safdur Ali has challenged me to a debate with him on the truth of Islam and Christianity. … But I can ask him that if he is so confident about his arguments and the truth of Christianity, where was he when Maulavi Ghulam Ahmad Qadiani stood in the field of debate like a brave lion and challenged him. This challenge had such an effect on you people that no Christian missionary dare confront him [Mirza Ghulam Ahmad].” (Magazine Dastkari, Amritsar, 18 June 1899)


Another sign of the Prophets is that the disbelievers force the prophet and the followers out of their country and make them give up their entire religion if they want to stay. Allah States:


وَقَالَ الَّذِينَ كَفَرُوا لِرُسُلِهِمْ لَنُخْرِجَنَّكُمْ مِنْ أَرْضِنَا أَوْ لَتَعُودُنَّ فِي مِلَّتِنَا ۖ فَأَوْحَىٰ إِلَيْهِمْ رَبُّهُمْ لَنُهْلِكَنَّ الظَّالِمِينَ {14}


And those who disbelieved said to their Messengers, ‘We will, surely, expel you from our land unless you return to our religion.’ Then their Lord sent unto them the revelation: ‘We will, surely, destroy the wrongdoers. (Chapter 14, Verse 14)
