A Gift for the Queen

Front Cover
Islam International Publications Ltd, Jun 1, 2018 - Religion - 83 pages

The Diamond Jubilee of Her Majesty Queen Victoria was celebrated with great pomp and show in June 1897 throughout British India. Since the purpose of the advent of the Promised Messiah(as) was to propagate the Unity of God and His message, he found a way to serve those objectives at that occasion. He published the booklet Tohfa-e-Qaisariyyah on May 25, 1897. In addition to felicitating Her Majesty, the Promised Messiah(as) made the following points with great subtlety and wisdom:

1. Truthfulness of the Holy Prophet Muhammad(sa).

2. Truthfulness of Islam and its teachings that can bring about international peace.

3. A proposal for Her Majesty to organise a conference of great religions.

4. A strong plea for Her Majesty to clear Hazrat Isa(as) (Jesus) of the accusation of having been cursed.

5. An undertaking to show a sign of his own truthfulness, provided that Her Majesty would agree to accept his message in case of fulfilment – adding that he would accept death penalty if he is unable to show a convincing sign.
