“The ninth proof for the existence of God found in the Holy Qur’an is that of revelation.”
(continued from yesterday)
“When books are spread abroad.” (Q81:11)
“That is, books and scriptures would be widely published. Today, because of the innovation of the printing press, the massive extent to which books are now available requires no explanation.
“When people are brought together” (Q81:8)
That is, the fostering of human relationships and ease of communication is more evident in this age than in any other.
ترجف الرّاجفة. تتبعهاالرّدفة.
“This will happen on the day when the quaking earth shall quake, and a second quaking shall follow it.” (Q 79:7-8)
“There is not a township but We shall destroy it before the Day of Resurrection, or punish it.” (Q 17:59)
“Accordingly, in the present time, numerous fatalities have been caused by the plague, earthquakes, raging storms, volcanic eruptions and wars. Currently, so many potential avenues to death have opened up, and with such force, that when taken as a whole, no similar example can be found at any other point in history.
“As for Islam, it is a religion which has in every century, given rise to such people who have been honoured with divine revelation and who have through extraordinary signs manifested the truth of the existence of a powerful and living being whose intentions emanate from wisdom. God revealed the following revelation to the chosen one of this age at a moment of great helplessness and anonymity:
“People will come to you by every distant track, so much so that the paths they take will become well-worn with use. Men whom We shall direct through revelation from heaven will help you. You should not be discourteous towards those who visit you and be not tired by their large number.”
“Is this a minor event or a sign to be dismissed without due consideration that an individual from a village unknown to the civilised world makes a claim [as the one above], and then despite fierce opposition and constraints, the world witnesses people from America, Africa and all other places gather where he is; the number of these people swells so large that to greet and shake hands with them all is not the task of a normal person; they are a people of great influence, yet they forsake their homeland and take up residence here and the name of Qadian is made famous throughout the world?
“In a second instance, a Christian from America called [Alexander] Dowie claimed to be a prophet and published the following vile words: I pray to God that Islam should soon disappear from the world. O’ God, accept this prayer of mine. O’ God destroy Islam.”
Only our leader, the Promised Messiah (as), confronted him and published an announcement saying:
“O’ you who claim to be a prophet, enter a mubahala with me. Our contest will be conducted through prayer and both of us will pray to God Almighty that He causes to die first, whichever one of us, is a liar.
To which he insolently replied:
“Do you think that I shall reply to these gnats and flies?… If I put my foot on them I would crush out their lives.”
“But in the same announcement of 23 August 1903, the Promised Messiah (as) said that even if Dowie ran away from this challenge, a great catastrophe would still befall his home of Zion.
The Promised Messiah (as) prayed:
“O’ my God, my most perfect and absolute God, decide this matter quickly and expose the lies of Dowie before the people.”
“And then my worthy readers let me tell you what happened next. A man who lived the life of a prince and possessed 70 million in currency saw his wife and son become his enemies and his father issued a handbill that claimed his son was of illegitimate birth. He was struck by paralysis and lost his mind to his grief. Finally, in March 1907, in a state of regret and misery [he died] exactly as God had revealed to His chosen one and just as the Promised Messiah (as) had foretold in his announcement of 20 February 1907. He wrote that God had said to him:
“I shall manifest a fresh Sign which will bring great victory. This Sign will be for the whole world.”
“His death was a sign of the existence of God. This was a victory given to the Promised Messiah (as) over the old and new order of the Christian world.
“As a third example, let us take the Aryas who dominate over this country and were once led by Lekh Ram. In the booklet Karamat-us-Sadiqeen published in the month of Safar 1311 Hijri, the Promised Messiah (as) recorded the following prophecy, which he states was given to him as a result of the acceptance of his prayer:
“God has disclosed to me that within six years from today’s date this man would be afflicted with great torment on account of his reviling the Holy Prophet, may peace and blessings of Allah be upon him.”
“Then in an announcement of 22 February 1893, he foretold the manner of his death:
“That is, Lekh Ram is like the Samaritan golden calf out of which issues a sound that is devoid of spirituality. Hence, he will be afflicted with the same torment that struck the Samaritan golden calf. As everyone is aware, the Samaritan golden calf was cut into pieces, burned and then its ashes were thrown in the river.”
“Then on 2 April 1893, the Promised Messiah (as) saw a dream in which a strongly built man of hideous appearance — who seemed to be more from among the angels of wrath than from among men — asks where Lekh Ram is. Again…in Karamat-us-Sadiqeen, he also stipulated the date of his demise.
“That is, the day after Eid — a Saturday.”
“Thus five years prior to the event, the Promised Messiah (as) wrote and described how Lekh Ram would be killed. Ultimately, Lekh Ram was killed on 6 March 1897 and with one voice all people accepted that this prophecy had been fulfilled in clear and manifest terms and was a decisive proof of the existence of God. Thus divine revelation is such a conclusive proof that denying the existence of God in its presence is the height of shamelessness.”
