After a series of Mutawatir (mass-transmitted) authentic evidences, it is vital to mention that Mirza Ghulam Ahmad Qadiyani laid down the following important principle as written in his own words, “And Al-Qasam [(an oath, i.e., ‘by Allah!’)] indicates that the narration is taken upon its apparent meaning without interpretation, without exception – and if this was not the case, then what benefit was there in mentioning the oath? So, ponder upon this as those that inspect and research do.” (Hamamatul Bushra p. 51, Ruhani Khaza’in 7/196)
It is now known from this Mirza’i principle that if an oath is present in a prophecy, then it is taken upon the apparent (i.e., literal) meaning, and [figuratively] interpreting the narration or making an exception is incorrect – keeping this in mind, two Ahadith are presented:
The first: The Messenger of Allah ﷺ said, “By the One in Whose Hand is my soul! Surely the Son of Maryam (‘Isa) is about to descend amongst you as a just ruler, then he will break the Cross, kill the pigs, and abolish the Jizyah – and money will overflow until there is no one to accept it [as charity] …” (Sahih Al-Bukhari #2222, Sahih Muslim #155, Sunan At-Tirmidhi #2233 and he [Abu ‘Isa At-Tirmidhi] said: ‘This is a Hasan Sahih Hadith’, Tahqiqi Maqalat 1/100-101)
The second: The Messenger of Allah ﷺ said, “By Allah! [‘Isa] bin Maryam will descend as a just ruler! …” (Sahih Muslim #155, Tahqiqi Maqalat 1/105-106)
It is not explicitly clear in even a single Sahih or Hasan li-Dhatihi Hadith that ‘Isa bin Maryam (Peace be upon them) will not descend from the Heavens, let alone that he will be born in the Ummah! If any Qadiyani has any such Hadith, then let them present it or let them clearly and honestly repent from disbelief and apostasy and adopt the authentic creed of the Muslims.
وَمَا عَلَيْنَآ اِلَّا الْبَلٰغُ الْمُبِيْنُ
“And our duty is only to convey [the Message] clearly.”
