[Note: Although an opponent of Ahmadiyyat -- Mr. Tayo -- is being addressed to, in this answer to an accusation set forth by him, but it must be remembered that similar accusations are put forward by other opponents of this Movement, and by replying to Mr. Tayo's accusation, indirectly we are answering the accusation of the other opponents.]
Mr. Tayo further asserts that "Muhammad Ali was one of the principal eyewitnesses" to all this, and therefore must have known that Hazrat Mirza Sahibs claims were untrue. We inform Mr. Tayo that, in fact, Maulana Muhammad Ali wrote a book entitled "Ayat-ullah: Maulvi Sana-Ullah runs away from the Promised Messiahs mubahila challenge." Had he heard of, or read this book, he would never have made his ridiculous remark citing the Maulana as a witness to the so-called defeat of Hazrat Mirza Sahib by Maulvi Sana-Ullah!
1. "My consent was not obtained for this prayer, and it was published without my arrangements."
From the above extracts every fair-minded and God-fearing person can see that Maulvi Sana-Ullah considered Hazrat Mirza Sahibs Notice (which Mr. Tayo has quoted from) to be an invitation to a mubahila, and NOT a one-sided prayer by the Founder for the death of the liar within the life-time of the truthful one. Had this Notice not been an invitation to mubahila, the question of Maulvi Sana-Ullahs agreement (see extracts no. 1 and 8 above) to it could not arise. The above extracts also show that the Maulvi was absolutely terrified of what may befall him in case he accepted the challenge to enter into a mubahila. In many other places too, Maulvi Sana-Ullah has referred to this Notice as the "Notice of mubahila":
1. "Krishan Qadiani (an abusive epithet for Hazrat Mirza Sahib) issued, on 15 April 1907, the Notice of mubahila against me" (Muraqqa' Qadiani, June 1908, p. 18).
In fact, rejecting the criterion that the liar would die first, the sub-editor of Ahl-i Hadith added to Sana-Ullahs above article the following footnote:
"Your (i.e., Hazrat Mirza Sahibs) claim absolutely contradicts the Quran. The Quran says that evil-doers are granted respite by God. Look at: "As to him who is in error, the Beneficent will prolong his length of days" (19:75); "We grant them respite only that they may add to their sins" (3:177); "and He leaves them alone in their inordinacy, blindly wandering on" (2:15); etc. These verses belie your deception. And also: "Nay, We gave provision to these and their fathers, until life was prolonged to them" (21:44). These words clearly mean that God causes the liars, the deceitful ones, the mischief-makers, and the disobedient, to live long that in this respite they may add to their evil deeds. How can you coin the principle that such people are not granted to live long" (Ahl-i Hadith, 26 April 1907).
Commenting on this Sana-Ullah himself wrote:
"I believe this to be correct" (ibid., 31 July 1908).
He also wrote:
"Despite being the true Prophet, the Holy Prophet Muhammad passed away before Musailima the Liar. And Musailima, despite being the liar, died after the truthful one" (Muraqqa' Qadiani, August 1907).
SO, MAULVI SANA-ULLAH REJECTED THE CRITERION THAT THE ONE WHO DIES FIRST IS THE LIAR, AND ADDUCED HIS OWN CRITERION THAT THE LIAR CONTINUES TO LIVE WHILE THE TRUTHFUL ONE DIES BEFORE HIM.
As, in Mr. Tayos own words, "Sana-Ullah lived many years after him (the Founder)," it can easily be judged who satisfied Sana-Ullahs own criterion for the liar!
