On the advent of Promised Messiah Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmed– as the Reformer of the later days in Islam; he brought a divinely message which disagreed with and rejected the doctrines or authority in dissent of any established understanding of Ulemas in Islam who believe in the literal meanings of finality of prophet hood of Muhammad (pbuh) and that Jesus (as) although did not die on the cross but his myth of ascension to heaven to be saved from the ordeal of cross is wrong. He also declared that Jesus (as), the Prophet of Israelite will not return in the later days in aid of Muslim Ummah as their saviour Nabi.
It may be seen as a tall claim of Ahmadiyya but in its essence, it is simply a matter of dissent from or the wrong compliance of the old established myths and stances in the Muslim world.
Whereas the Promised Messiah claimed to be the Mahdi, the guided one and Reformer in Islam— He is a messiah in Islam, as Jesus (as) was for the Israelites. He directs that masses must desist the compliance in conformation to the aforesaid myth and practices wrongly inculcated by the group of ill-informed Ulemas about the finality of prophet hood of Muhammad (pbuh) and raising of Jesus to heaven.
He clarifies this taboo for the Muslims that Jesus after taken down from the cross migrated to Kashmir to look for the other sheep of house of Israel as he was the messenger for all the 12 sheep of house of Israel who had since migrated far to escape the Assyrian’s savagery and persecution. He died a natural death at the age of 120 years.
The Promised Messiah professed the mark dissent from the common established belief and its compliance by the masses who are coerced into following the wrong stance taken by ulemas.
While the dissent under the direction of promised Messiah from the wrongly established practices is life; the compliance and confirmation of stance of ulemas and following the old rut is the death of the religion of Islam.
There is famous quotation of a wise man: ‘Has there ever been a society which has died of dissent? Several have died of conformity of wrongly established religious stances in our lifetime.’
