Unfortunately the connection has been under-emphasised during the short history of the Ahmadiyyah Jama’at.

However, a cursory glance at the writings of Mirza Ghulam Ahmad al-Qadiani, the terminology used, the education he had, the relationship he had with certain scholars, the relationship he had with his own murids (disciples), the fact that he accepted the Bai’ah (pledge of allegiance) of his murids, the regular retreats (khulwah) he took in order to gain seclusion for concentrating on Allah (swt), and the establishment of a system of Khilafah (vicegerency) after his death all allude to his inclination towards tasawwuf. 

His writings are full of great methodologies he advised his murids to accept and practice in order to be accepted in the Presence of the Lord of Honour and Glory, and everything was sourced (as to its validity) in the Sunnah of his beloved, the Chosen One, the Master-Prophet (saw).

I shall, in due course, categorise his writings on this blog, especially with regards to his reading and practice of the great awliyaa of the past, as well as the great esteem in which he held them, and longed for them.

In doing so, readers will have the opportunity of witnessing the love which shone forth from Mirza Ghulam Ahmad for His beloved Creator (swt), the Master Prophet (saw), the inimitable Qur’an, and the Ummah of the Master-Prophet (saw).
