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.

Eternal Guidelines

From the Holy Quran
There should be no compulsion in religion. Surely, right has become distinct from wrong. 2:257
O ye who believe, be steadfast in the cause of Allah, bearing witness in equity; and let not a people's enmity incite you to act otherwise than with justice. Be always just, that is nearer to righteousness. And fear Allah. Surely Allah is aware of what you do. 5:9
You shall surely be tried in your possessions and in your persons and you shall surely. hear many (hurtful) things from those who were given the Book before you and from those who set up equals to Allah. But if you show patience (and fortitude) and act righteously, that indeed is a matter of high resolve. 3:187

From the Holy Prophet of Islam
If people witness an act of oppression and do not stop the oppressor and make him desist, Allah may include them all in His retribution.
Iyaz ibn Himar relates that the Holy Prophet said: Allah has revealed to me that you should be courteous so that no one should hold himself above another nor transgress against another. (Sahih Muslim)

From the Promised Messiah
My friends, who have entered into a covenant with me, may God enable me and enable you to do such things as would please Him. Today, you are small in number and are being treated with contempt. You are passing through a great period of trial. According to His established scheme of things, it was decreed by God since time immemorial that efforts would be made from all directions that you should falter. You will be harassed in every way and you will have to bear with all manners of talk. Each one of those who will inflict misery upon you with his tongue or with his hand will do it in the belief that he is doing it in the service of Islam. So also will you be tried from Heaven so that you are tried in every possible way. Hearken ye, therefore, that for you the road to victory does not lie in the direction of dry logic which you may employ or that you should return mockery for mockery or that you should return abuse for abuse. If you adopt such a course your hearts will become hardened and you will be left with nothing but mere words which God Almighty loathes and looks down upon with aversion. So do not behave in a manner whereby you should become subject to two curses- the curse of men and the curse of God. (Roohani Khazain Vol: 3; Izala-e-Auham, P 546-547)
The principle to which we adhere is that we have kindness at heart for the whole of mankind. If anyone sees the house of a Hindu neighbor on fire and does not come forward to help extinguish the fire, most truly I declare that he does not belong to me. If anyone of my followers, having seen someone attempting to murder a Christian does not endeavor to save him. I most truly declare that he does not belong to us. (Roohani Khazain Vol: 12; Sirajum Muneer, P 28)
Rest assured that this is a tree planted by the Hand of God. He will never permit it to go waste. He will not be satisfied until He has seen it through to its fullness. He will see to it that it is well irrigated and will build a protective fence around it. Thus God will bless my followers with astounding progress and prosperity. Have you left any stones unturned ? Had it been the work of man, this tree would have been cut and felled since long and no trace of it would have remained. (Roohani Khazain Vol. - 11; Anjaam e Atham, P 64)
