The Agapemonites: 2 Interviews with Kate Barlow

  2. Thanks for the link. I believe the dispute between Qadiani and Lahori Ahmadis is not one regarding the prophethood of the Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad (both believe him to be a prophet in one sense or another) but a dispute about the institution of Khilafat.

  3. I concur - I think prophethood was not the main issue - especially if you read the tracts in Anwar al-'Ulum, Hadrat Mirza Bashiruddin Mahmud Ahmad (ra) was more worried about the jama'at splitting rather than anything else and was trying to convince others around him to select 'one of them' (i.e., from the people who later became the Lahori jama'at) for the sake of the unity of the jama'at and to not worry about their opinions on the prophethood aspect.
