Problem of Muslim opponents of HMGA (presented by LAM)

Submitted by Rashid.

Today Muslim opponents of HMGA, especially those living in Europe and North America, find it difficult to oppose HMGA and his claims of Mujaddid (of 14th Islamic century) as presented by LAM, supported by Hadith of Holy Prophet Muhammad SAWS, and endorsed by other Mujaddids of preceding Islamic centuries. These opponents instead of accepting their misunderstanding about HMGA, outrightly reject ALL Hadith of Holy Prophet Muhammd SAWS and Mujaddids that preceded HMGA. I’m sure these opponents of HMGA would not be rejecting Hadiths and previous Mujaddids, if they were not opposing HMGA. It is also interesting that these Muslim opponents are not living in Muslim countries, especially in Pakistan, as their kind of attitude towards Hadith of HP Muhammad SAWS and Mujaddids of previous Islamic centuries would land them in trouble slammed with a certification of Kafir (non-Muslim).

Maulana Abdul Haq Vidyarthi sahib, answering to opponents of HMGA, who in their maneuver to get out of iron grip of Ahmadiyyat (as presented by LAM), reject ALL Hadiths of HP Muhammad SAWS, by declaring them as fabricated. In LAM monthly Urdu magazine ‘Ruh-Islam’ November 1954 issue, page 11, he writes [paraphrased by me]:

Those who reject Hadiths will have to reject all the Holy Scriptures, in defiance of Holy Quran injunctions. By doing this they are rejecting similar teachings in Holy Scriptures of other religions that are repeated in Holy Quran and Hadith. He gives examples. One such example: Procedure of Wudu (ablution) described in Holy Quran is exactly the same that is given in Zend Avesta. Similarly, concept of prayer, fasting, heaven, hell, hur, justice etc are given in other religions holy scriptures.

It is interesting to see objections answered by LAM elders, who had personally met HMGA, are the same that today’s opponents ask us to answer.

  1. With such rejection of Holy Scriptures, then the “Lords prayer” (which is similar to Surah Fatihah) too has to be rejected. In my opinion such a rejection is a disservice to Divine words:

    Our Father, who art in heaven,
    hallowed be thy name.
    Thy Kingdom come,
    thy will be done,
    on earth as it is in heaven
    Give us this day our daily bread.
    And forgive us our trespasses,
    as we forgive those who trespass against us.
    And lead us not into temptation,
    but deliver us from evil.
    For thine is the kingdom,
    the power and the glory,
    for ever and ever.
