The Ahmadiyya Muslim Community interprets the prophecies regarding the Second Coming of Jesus as being of a person "similar to Jesus", rather than that of Jesus of Nazareth himself.
Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad (as) professed that the prophecy in traditional religious texts was greatly misunderstood to interpret that Jesus of Nazareth himself would return.
Towards the end of 1890, Almighty Allah revealed to Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad (as) that Prophet Jesus (as) had died and the prophecy of his second coming was to be fulfilled by a person like Jesus, and that he was the Promised Messiah.
After receiving revelation from Almighty God, Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad (as) claimed in 1891 to be the Promised Messiah and Mahdi whose advent was prophesied by the Holy Prophet (sa).
The Promised Messiah (as) also gave arguments in support of his claim and wrote books, Fath-e-Islam, Taudih-e-Maram, and Izala-e-Auham. He asserted that Almighty God had sent him to give spiritual life to the people.
