The Heavenly Decree is the English translation of Asmani Faisala by Hadrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad, the Promised Messiah and Mahdi (as) and the Founder of Ahmadiyya Muslim Jama'at. It is addressed to his contemporary ulema, specially Miyan Nadhir Husain Dehlawi and Maulawi Muhammad Husain of Batala who had issued a fatwa of heresy against the Promised Messiahas and declared him a non-Muslim, because he (the Promised Messiahas) had claimed that Jesus Christ had died a natural death and the second coming of Masih ibni Mariam (Jesus Christ) is fulfilled by the advent of Hadrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmadas. Because (by the time the book was written) the ulema had refused to debate this issue with the Promised Messiah, he invited them, in this book, to a spiritual contest in which the question whether someone is a Muslim or not would be settled by Allah himself on the basis of four criteria of a true believer as laid down by Him in the Holy Quran. He also spelled out the modus operandi of this contest and fixed the period of time frame within which this contest would be decreed by Allah. He declared that God would not desert him and would help him and would grant him victory.

Two groups in tension over Ahmadiyah issues
The Jakarta Post

Two youth mass organizations in Makassar almost became implicated in a brawl over Ahmadiyah issues.

The police have issued warnings. The organizations, the Islamic Defenders Front (FPI) and the Pancasila Youth, through their leaders signed a peace pact before the police officials. reported that tension originated from a misunderstanding between the groups’ members.

Pancasila Youth regional secretary Andi Azikin said FPI members misinterpreted the situation when they saw Pancasila Youth members by an Ahmadiyah Mosque.

“The FPI members thought we were defending the people at the Ahmadiyah mosque. The truth is we are not involved in Ahmadiyah issues,” Azikin said Sunday.

The FPI was reportedly at the site to prevent people from performing prayers at the mosque.

According to witnesses, FPI members provoked Pancasila Youth activists. Pancasila activists were then forced back to their headquarters where they allegedly planned to respond.

In the last three years, Ahmadiyah people have been subject to much discrimination in the country after the Indonesian Clerics Association (MUI) issued a religious decree stating Ahmadiyah was not part of Islam.

The FPI has been active in suppressing the Amadiyah people.

The administration under President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono has not provided proper protection to Ahmadiyah people, or the right to perform prayer.

Many activists perceive this as a sign of the administration’s lack of commitment toward he country’s ideology of pluralism.
