Imam of Khadija Mosque Berlin (Qadiani Jamaat mosque) declares that all those who recite the Kalima are Muslims

The Imam of the Khadija Mosque in Berlin (Germany), which is the mosque of the Qadiani Jamaat, headed by their Khalifa Mirza Masroor Ahmad, has made the following statement:

Anyone who has said the German “Glaubensbekenntnis”, “there is no God but Allah and Mohammed is the Messenger of Allah”, just this one sentence, he is a Muslim. He pointed out that no person can call anyone unbeliever who does claim for himself to be a real Muslim. God decides and no person. The Imam stressed that this Kalima is the only condition to be a believer and a Muslim. The Imam said that you have to say this one sentence and then you are Muslim. He highly stressed that no one can call you an unbeliever if you claim for yourself to be a muslim. Only God decides.

This statement of the Imam clashes with the views expressed by their Khalifa number 2 Mirza Mahmud Ahmad in his English book Truth About the Split  (see the 2007 edition available at the link of their own website).

He writes:

“(1) the belief that Hadrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad was actually a Nabi;

(2) the belief that he was ‘the Ahmad’ spoken of in the prophecy of Jesus referred to in the Holy Quran in Al-Saff 61:7;

(3) the belief that all those so-called Muslims who have not entered into his Bai‘at formally, wherever they may be, are kuffar and outside the pale of Islam, even though they may not have heard the name of the Promised Messiah.

That these beliefs have my full concurrence, I readily admit.” (p . 56)

“I wrote that as we believed the Promised Messiah to be one of the prophets of God, we could not possibly regard his deniers as Muslims.” (p. 146)

“such people as had failed to recognise the Promised Messiah as a Rasul even if they called him a righteous person with their tongues, were yet veritable Kafirs.” (p. 148)

“So, is the Imam of the Khadija Mosque correct or is the above book correct?
