Abstract

The dignity of Sayyidah Maryam (God be pleased with her) is well established in Christianity as well as in Islam. They both have great respect for Sayyidah Maryam’s family. The Christians consider Sayyidah Maryam (God be pleased with her) as Mother of God (i.e. Jesus – one of three) while Muslims, having different points of view, regard her as a saintly woman. In the mid-nineteenth century A.D., Mirzā Ghulām Aḥmad Qādiyānī appeared who claimed to be a subordinate prophet within Islam. It remained a main controversial point between his supporters and conventional Muslims, who believe Muḥammad (Peace be upon him) is the last Prophet and Messenger. Among his declarations, Mirzā Qādiyānī also claimed to be the Promised Messiah of the revelations, and superior to the Prophet ‘Īsā (Peace be upon him) in every aspect. Having attacked such exalted personalities, he denied the miraculous birth of the Prophet ‘Īsā (Peace be upon him) and said that Sayyidah Maryam (God be pleased with her) was a woman lacking sound character. He raised many false and blasphemous allegations regarding the dignity of Sayyidah Maryam (God be pleased with her). This concludes the refutation of his outrageous allegations about Sayyidah Maryam (God be pleased with her).
