About the book

One of the 30 Dajjāls and great liars of this Ummah who claimed to be a prophet is Mirza Ghulam Ahmad Qadiyani. Among his followers, there is a group that tries to deceive people by claiming that he did not claim a real and genuine prophethood, but only a metaphorical one. This little booklet shows what prophethood really means and what all the prophets had in common. It then proves, with quotations, how Mirza Ghulam Ahmad Qadiyani claimed all these components of prophethood for himself and thus clearly claimed not a metaphorical, but a real prophethood.
