The Heavenly Decree is the first English rendering of Asmanni Faislah (Urdu) written by the Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad , Promised Messiah and Imam Mahdi(as) in 1891. In this book he primarily addressed Miyan Nadhir Husain of Dehli and Maulawi Muhammad Husain of Batala, who were the two foremost of all of his opponents. In fact, it was Miyan Nadhir Husain who first issued the fatwa of kufr (heresy) against Hazrat Mirza Ghulam of Qadian, which opened the floodgates of the same fatwa given by numerous other Ulema. The grounds on which the fatwa was based were that the Promised Messiah had claimed that according to the Holy Quran and Authentic Ahadith Hadrat Masih ibni Maryam(as), after he was saved from the Cross, died a natural death, and was not living somewhere in heaven and would return to the world in latter days-as believed by the Muslim and Christian clergy and laity-and that the prophecy of his Second Coming would be fulfilled by a person who would be like Masih ibn-e-Maryam(as) in his nature, but would be born in the Ummah of the Holy Prophet(saw). Miyan Nadhir Husain refused to enter into a debate. Consequently, the Promised Messiah invited, in this book, Miyan Nadhir Husain, Muhammad Husain Batalawi and others of the same belief to a spiritual contest in which the question whether someone is, or is not, a true believer in the sight of Allah would be settled by Allah Himself on the basis of the four criteria of a true believer as laid down by Him in the Holy Quran; the Promised Messiah also spelled out in detail the modus operandi of this contest and also fixed the period and time frame within which this contest would be decided by Allah. But he knew that his opponents would not take up this challenge-and so it happened. The book also covers other related topics of great interest. - from Amzon
