Qadiani Jamaat forsakes its beliefs and adopts Lahori beliefs

Submitted by Rashid Jahangiri


In newspaper advertisements last week the Qadiani Jamaat placed full page advertisements giving their beliefs. In those advertisements they clearly said the Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad was a Reformer.

They did not mention their real beliefs that they believe him to be a Prophet and every person who recites the kalima but refuses to take an oath of allegiance on the hand of their khalifa is out of the fold of Islam.

In this video we will explain the real belief of the Qadiani Jamaat and provide evidence of what they are trying to hide from the mainstream.

    From Zahid Aziz:

    In this connection readers may wish to read my recent book 'The True Succession'. I have made its Chapter 7 (Retraction of Beliefs by the Qadiani Jamaat) available separately as well.

    The True Succession

    Chapter 7 of The True Succession

  2. The advertisement under discussion covers two facing pages in the paper, Luton on Sunday, on pages 2 & 3. Only a part of its first page is reproduced below:

    The Promised Messiah (peace be upon him) – A Reformer for All Religions

    The Ahmadiyya Muslim Community is a global Muslim community that has evolved from very humble beginnings into one of the most dynamic spiritual, social and humanitarian movements in the world today. Founded in 1889 in the remote village of Qadian India, it is the only Islamic organisation to believe that the long-awaited messiah has come in the person of Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad (peace be upon him).

    Prophecies relating to the advent of such a reformer are not unique to Islam. Other Divine religions have also prophesied the appearance of such a reformer in the latter days. However, a multitude of reformers would create confusion. For true peace to prevail it must mean that all such prophecies referred to the advent of a single reformer who would unite mankind under a single message of peace.

    This revival of peace would be through the revival of Islam as its teachings are timeless and eternal and uniquely, they encompass the truth of all previous religions. So whilst the reformer would certainly be the one awaited by Muslims he would also be the reformer awaited by followers of other Divine religions as well. Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad claimed, under Divine guidance, that he was that reformer who was promised for the latter days in fulfilment of the prophecies relating to the Promised Messiah and Imam Al-Mahdi (ie the Guided Leader prophesied in Islam). His advent therefore fulfilled the prophecies relating to the second spiritual coming of Jesus, Krishna, Buddha (peace be on them all) and other prophets of Allah.

    The Promised Messiah (peace be upon him) firmly believed that all religions were true at their sources, and he always sought to uphold the dignity of all religions and their prophets.

    The community now spans 204 countries with a membership exceeding tens of millions. Wherever it exists the community seeks to promote the peaceful message of Islam with an emphasis on belief in God, prayer and service to humanity.

    Promoting Peace

    The Ahmadiyya Muslim Community is the leading Islamic organisation to categorically reject terrorism in any form. Over a century ago, the Promised Messiah (peace be upon him) emphatically declared that an aggressive "jihad by the sword" has no place in Islam. In its place, he taught his followers to wage a bloodless, intellectual "jihad of the pen" to defend Islam. To this end, he penned more than 80 books and tens of thousands of letters, delivered hundreds of lectures, and engaged in scores of public debates. His rigorous and rational defence of Islam unsettled conventional Muslim thinking. As part of its effort to revive Islam, the Community continues to spread Islam's teachings of moderation and restraint in the face of bitter opposition from the Muslim world.

    Similarly, the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community is the only Islamic organisation to endorse a separation of mosque and state. Over a century ago, the Promised Messiah (peace he upon him) taught his followers to protect the sanctity of both religion and government by becoming righteous souls as well as loyal citizens. He cautioned against irrational interpretations of Qur'anic pronouncements and misapplications of Islamic law and continually voiced his concerns over protecting the rights of God's creatures.

    The Ahmadiyya Muslim Community continues to be an advocate for universal human rights and protections for religious and other minorities. It champions the empowerment and education of women and its members are among the most law-abiding and educated Muslims in the world.


    As pointed out by Br. Shahid Aziz [video link], the Qadianis practice Taqiyya, the dissimulation i.e. lying to uphold one’s belief. Taqiyya as used in the advertisement is just another form of wilful deception, commonly called hustling.  In the said advertisement, Qadianis have used the word ‘reformer’ eight times, directly or indirectly, about Hazrat Mirza Sahib (on the first page), and the salutation and prayer of ‘peace be upon him’ six times (in both pages).

    In a real world, choice and usage of words matter, especially in the matters of faith when one is trying to propagate it. In Islam, the term ‘Reformer’ is used for a Mujaddid whereas the salutation and prayer ‘peace be upon him’ is used for a Prophet and both are not interchangeable.

    The said advertisement reeks of Taqiyya. To fool the novice and the general audience outside their Jamaat they are refraining from calling HMGA a prophet and call him a ‘reformer’ i.e. Mujaddid instead.  Whereas, in the same advertisement, for the internal consumption of their Jamaat that will not accept any term short of a prophet for HMGA, they have freely used the phrase ‘peace be upon him’. Thus they have hustled outsiders, while quietened the insiders.

    Taqiyya as a practice found its perfection in Bhai-ism, and Qadianiat is just another reproduction of it with the said advertisement only a proof. Like Bhai’s, they too believe in a Prophet after Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) that came and left, and they too claim that their ‘spiritual’ leadership is also chosen by God.

    They will never advertise the writings of their Khalifa-2 that Br. Shahid Aziz points out in his video about their belief in HMGA as the prophet. They will never let the general public know about how they interpret ‘Seal of the Prophets’ (v. 33:40) and ‘Ishmu Ahmad’ (v. 61:6). The moment they do so, then they will create another meaning for the ‘reformer’ they advertised, which is what the QK-2 did, the prophethood of HMGA. They are in a pitiful quandary. Damn if they do. Damn if they don’t. As pointed out by Br. Shahid Aziz, Maulana Muhammad Ali also warned Qadianis that while believing in prophethood of HMGA, they are trying to ride two boats at the same time, the boat of general body of Islam and their own Qadianiat, which is just not possible.

    Qadianis! Please re-read your advertisement and take a stand either way about HMGA and openly proclaim him either as a Mujaddid or as a Prophet, but not both. Else, self-reflect in your modus operandi which reminds one of Paul who does not consider it a sin to lie in matters of faith, the hallmark of a man made religion. For example Romans 3 (New International Version):

    3 What if some were unfaithful? Will their unfaithfulness nullify God’s faithfulness?

    4 Not at all! Let God be true, and every human being a liar. As it is written: “So that you may be proved right when you speak and prevail when you judge.”

    5 But if our unrighteousness brings out God’s righteousness more clearly, what shall we say? That God is unjust in bringing his wrath on us? (I am using a human argument.)

    6 Certainly not! If that were so, how could God judge the world?

    7 Someone might argue, “If my falsehood enhances God’s truthfulness and so increases his glory, why am I still condemned as a sinner?”

    8 Why not say—as some slanderously claim that we say—“Let us do evil that good may result”? Their condemnation is just!

    But, if the Qadianis need a elaboration on truthfulness, then they can read on the following link:

    Concept Of ‘Truth’ In The Holy Quran [by Dr. Zahid Aziz]

    There are also many other false and tall claims in the said advertisement which others on this blog can elaborate upon e.g.

    * Founded in 1889 in the remote village of Qadian India, it is the only Islamic organisation to believe that the long-awaited messiah has come in the person of Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad (peace be upon him) [– what about AAIIL?]

    * the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community is the only Islamic organisation to endorse a separation of mosque and state [– what happened to Kashmir Committee, the king makers that Zulfiqar Bhutto writes about etc.?]

    * (HMGA) cautioned against irrational interpretations of Qur'anic pronouncements [– what about ‘Seal of the Prophets’ (v. 33:40) and ‘Ishmu Ahmad’ (v. 61:6)?]
