About the book

Since the time of the Noble Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him), it has been the belief of the entire Ummah that he is the last Prophet and that there will be no other Prophets after him until the Hour comes. This is one of the foundational beliefs of Islam and is clearly mentioned in the Noble Qur’ān and a large number of authentic Qur’ānic texts. However, since the time of the Messenger of Allāh (peace be upon him), there have always been swindlers and liars who claimed to be prophets in order to achieve their low, dirty, and insidious goals. One of these great liars was Mirza Ghulam Ahmad Qadiyani, who claimed prophethood in India in the nineteenth century. He and the followers of his invented religion are a great fitna for Muslims because they deceive ignorant Muslims by claiming to follow the true Islām and thus lure them into hellfire. This book destroys this fitna from the ground up by providing the revered reader with the noble Qur’anic verse, the various Ḥadīths, and the statements of the great scholars of the Ummah regarding the end and finality of prophethood.
