Detailed reply to Qadiani allegations against Lahore Ahmadiyya elders

The Qadianis have placed some material on their Website ( alleging that, before the Split in 1914, the Lahore Ahmadiyya elders, particularly Maulana Muhammad Ali, made statements saying that Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad is a prophet. This is a complete misrepresentation. Maulana Muhammad Ali answered all these allegations about him several times during his life, from the Split in 1914 to nearly the end of his life.

Read our reply.

We also refer our readers below to some general material which refutes the Qadiani allegations.

Please read our article: Qadianis flee Maulana Muhammad Ali's challenges to debate where we quote the Maulana's repeatedly published statements that:

"(1) Mirza Mahmud Ahmad has made a false statement and committed a fabrication against the Promised Messiah that in 1901 he changed his claim in this way that, while previously denying a claim to prophethood, he now made a claim to prophethood himself, and cancelled his former writings of several years containing denials of a claim to prophethood."

We also quote Maulana Muhammad Ali's sworn declaration made in response to a challenge from a Qadiani:

"I, Muhammad Ali, head of the Lahore Ahmadiyya Jamaat, do swear that my belief is that Hazrat Mirza [Ghulam Ahmad] sahib of Qadian is a Mujaddid and the Promised Messiah, but not a prophet, nor can any person become a kafir or excluded from the fold of Islam by denying him. This was also the belief of Hazrat Mirza sahib. O God, if I have uttered falsehood in this oath taken in Thy name, then send upon me from Thyself such exemplary punishment as has no human hand in it, and from which the world would learn how stern and terrible is God's retribution for one who deceives His creatures by swearing falsely in His name."

We have also quoted extensive statements from Qadiani leaders, made before the Split in 1914, in which they declared that no prophet could come after the Holy Prophet Muhammad, that only auliya or saints could come after him, and that Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad was Mujaddid of the 14th Century hijra. We have also displayed scanned images of their full Urdu writings from the original publications.

Please see:

  1. Mirza Mahmud Ahmad at one time believed that no prophet can come after Prophet Muhammad.

  2. Father-in-law of Mirza Mahmud Ahmad declared Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad to be Mujaddid of 14th Century (two days before Hazrat Mirza's death).

  3. Mufti Muhammad Sadiq, a top-most Qadiani, says: We don't preach Hazrat Mirza's prophethood.
