Malfoozat

Malfoozat or Malfuzat translated as the dialogues, discourses or spoken words is a 5 volume corpus of the sayings and utterances of Mirza Ghulam Ahmad of Qadian the founder of the Ahmadiyya movement in Islam, who claimed that he had been appointed by God as the Promised Messiah and Mahdi. These sayings were taken down in writing by his disciples. The volumes cover a period of nearly two decades of discourses, speeches, question and answer sessions, sermons and conversations of Mirza Ghulam Ahmad starting from 1891 until his death in 1908. To date only a small portion of the volume set has been translated into the English language.[1]
