Malfūzāt (Urdu: ملفوظات‎) translated as the dialogues, discourses or spoken words is a five volume corpus of the sayings of Mirza Ghulam Ahmad of Qadian, the founder of the Ahmadiyya movement in Islam, who claimed to be the Promised Mahdi and Messiah. These discourses were written down by his companions. The volumes cover a period of nearly two decades of Ghulam Ahmad's discourses, speeches, question and answer sessions, sermons and conversations starting from 1891 until his death in 1908. To date, only a small portion has translated into English.[1]

Volumes[edit]

When the Malfūzāt were first compiled, under the leadership of Mirza Nasir Ahmad, the third Khalifa of the Ahmadiyya movement, they were published in Rabwah as a ten volume set. Newer editions have been compressed into five volumes. [1]
