Secondly -- Another belief of the non-Ahmadi Muslim which amounts to a denial of Khatam an-Nabiyyin is that, according to him, the spiritual experience known as "revelation" has come to an end. Now this strikes at the very root of the whole purpose of the institution of prophethood. Prophets were raised from time to time for the express purpose to bring man closer to God -- so close as to have a personal experience of His existence and presence. The only means which forges such a personal link between man and his Creator is the spiritual experience known as revelation, in which man becomes the recipient of the word of God.

Secondly -- Another belief of the non-Ahmadi Muslim which amounts to a denial of Khatam an-Nabiyyin is that, according to him, the spiritual experience known as "revelation" has come to an end. Now this strikes at the very root of the whole purpose of the institution of prophethood. Prophets were raised from time to time for the express purpose to bring man closer to God -- so close as to have a personal experience of His existence and presence.
The only means which forges such a personal link between man and his Creator is the spiritual experience known as revelation, in which man becomes the recipient of the word of God. No doubt the whole universe, with all its wonders of designing and workmanship points to the existence of a Master Mind behind it, and mere rational thinking also inclines us to the conclusion that all this wonderful universe could not have come into being just by accident, that behind it all, there must be a Mind, a Will, a Purpose who has created it, is guiding and controlling it, and ensuring its smooth running.
This is indeed what philosophy and science attempt to tell us. But the only conclusion that is reached by this process is that God must be there to run this whole show. The prophet tells us from his personal experience that he has heard the voice of God speak to him, and that is the end of all groping and doubting.
What was hitherto accepted as only highly probable now becomes a reality as clear-cut as day-light. All clouds of doubt are dispelled. This is the vital role which the institution of prophethood plays in the game of life, and that is why from time immemorial prophets were raised to shed light on life on this otherwise dark and dismal planet. The advent of the Holy Prophet Muhammad has been likened in the Quran to "rising of the sun" Sirajan Munira , implying that his spiritual light was meant for the whole of mankind.
And Khatam an-Nabiyyin implied that this spiritual sun will keep shining on humanity for all time to come. The Founder of the Ahmadiyya Movement was a living embodiment of this ever-flowing spiritual blessing of the Holy Prophet Muhammad. The word of God that came to him in profuse abundance reinforced faith in God in this age of wide-spread scepticism, thereby meeting the most dangerous threat to human civilisation which the decay of Faith in the long run spells.
All this spiritual illumination came to him, he declared, by drinking deep at the fount of the Quran and the Sunnah. Indeed this abundant gift of direct communion with the Supreme Source of life was vouchsafed to him in implementation of the Quranic declaration about the Holy Prophet Muhammad being Khatam an-Nabiyyin The spiritual tree of Islam is an ever-green tree, bearing fruit in all times, he declared.
The non-Ahmadi, unfortunately, is still very apathetic to this great duty enjoined by the Quran, which divides Muslims into two categories the Mujahidin and Qaideen, i. The first group is said to have a higher status with God: "Those who do Jihad with their wealth and lives carry with God a status higher than those sitting back. Both are Muslims, but with a big difference.
Mere acceptance and profession is not enough. The Quran has a poor word for those who say they believe that Islam is the only Light that can save mankind, but, raise not a little finger to make that Light known to the world.
They are described as "idlers.

Invitation to Ahmadiyyat
Dawat al-Amir English translation Invitation to Ahmadiyyat was first published in Urdu in , and then translated into Persian for presentation to the ruler of Afghanistan, Amanullah Khan. Two years or so before the book was compiled, three Afghan Ahmadis had been stoned to death by the orders of Amanullah Khan. These tragic events made it necessary that the message, aims and the rationale of the Ahmadiyya Movement should be expounded for the special attention of the king. The purpose of the book therefore was to convey to His Majesty an authentic account of the beliefs and doctrines of the Movement and the purpose of its establishment. It was also intended to refute the false charges that were made against the Movement by the orthodox divines and to contradict the baseless allegations made against the Movement.
