The Ahmadiyya Literary Review. Books Explored.
By the 19th century, the great Muslim kingdoms had fallen. In India, the British Raj had become a formidable force and was part of an empire upon which the sun never set. Once-mighty Muslim rulers began to pay homage to the English throne, leading to widespread Christian preaching. Relentless and en masse. Islam was seeing a huge decline. A well-known poet said that Islam was finished.
Then, a prophet came, foretold by the Holy Prophet (sa) some 1300 years prior. A reformer for the latter days who would bring Islam back to its golden age. The author of a certain “Barahin-e-Ahmadiyya” which was revered as a masterpiece, containing arguments in support of the Holy Qur’an and the Holy Prophet (sa). It demonstrated the superiority of Islam over all other faiths with logical arguments. Nobody, it was said, had written a book like this in over 1000 years. This man’s name was Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad (as), the Promised Messiah and Mahdi.
The Promised Messiah (as) wrote over 80 books in 28 years in defence of Islam to rejuvenate its followers. “The spiritual ark is ready,” he said. So, what exactly is contained in these vast writings? How do they relate to us in the 21st century going about our daily lives? MKA UK brings you the Ahmadiyya Literary Review, where we explore the writings of the Promised Messiah (as) and his Khulafa (successors).
