Praise be to Allaah.

Qaadyani is a destructive disbelieving group that names itself Muslim to mask its obnoxious filthy objectives and beliefs. The most dangerous of their beliefs are their claim that their leader is a Prophet, they alter the Quran, they believe that there is no Jihaad, they declare Muslims as non-Muslims and they are allies to the non-Muslims.

The Qaadyani liar (prophet) followed a step-by-step progression in his propaganda using means similar to those used by the secret sects and the Ismaa’eelees.

Firstly, he claimed that revelation came down to him through inspiration. Secondly, he claimed that he was the reformer of his era and that he was similar to Prophet ‘Eesaa Ibn Maryam may Allah exalt his mention in his modesty, his peacefulness and his gentleness.

In the third phase of his fallacy, he claimed that he was the Messiah who is to descend in the last times. But at first he said that he was only partly a Prophet. Then he claimed full Prophecy. Finally, he claimed to have become Krishna which is the name the Hindus give to their ‘God’. They believe in him in the same manner the Muslims believe in Allah. After this liar died, he was succeeded by Noor Ad-Deen. Then after his death the Qaadyani’s split into two groups. A group led by Mirza Bashir Ad-Deen Mahmood and called Ahmadiyyah. A second group was led by Mohammed Al-Lahori and called Al Lahori or Al Ahmadi.

Both groups follow the liar (prophet), follow his sayings and consider his books as sacred. However, the first group (Ahmadiyyah ) declares solely that he is a Prophet. While the second group (Lahori) believes he is the awaited Messiah and the reformer of the fourteenth Hijrah century. But this is just something he conspired with some of his followers and an attempt to deceive people to get more followers.

So, both groups glorify and follow every word that the liar says. This is why the Muslim scholars do not differentiate between them.  Disbelief is but one path, even though its kinds and ways are numerous.

There is a consensus of the Muslim nation that the Qaadyan’s followers are disbelievers, outside the fold of Islam. The regional council of the department of the northern frontiers in Pakistan passed a decision considering the Qaadyanis a non-Muslim minority.

Moreover, the Islamic Fiqh Committee which is affiliated with the World Islamic Conference passed a decision with the consensus of all its members, considering the Qaadyani creed completely non-Islamic and considering its followers as complete renegade apostates who left Islam. The Committee declared that all Muslims, governments, scholars, writers, intellectuals and Callers to Islam should confront this devious sect and its followers everywhere in the world.

Their thought and beliefs

  • Ghulam Ahmad began his activities as an Islamic daa’iyah (caller to Islam) so that he could gather followers around him, then he claimed to be a mujaddid inspired by Allaah. Then he took a further step and claimed to be the Awaited Mahdi and the Promised Messiah. Then he claimed to be a Prophet and that his prophethood was higher than that of Muhammad (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him).
  • The Qadianis believe that Allaah fasts, prays, sleeps, wakes up, writes, makes mistakes and has intercourse – exalted be Allaah far above all that they say.
  • The Qadiani believes that his god is English because he speaks to him in English.
  • The Qadianis believe that Prophethood did not end with Muhammad (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him), but that it is ongoing, and that Allaah sends a messenger when there is a need, and that Ghulam Ahmad is the best of all the Prophets.
  • They believe that Jibreel used to come down to Ghulam Ahmad and that he used to bring revelation to him, and that his inspirations are like the Qur’aan.
  • They say that there is no Qur’aan other than what the “Promised Messiah” (Ghulam Ahmad) brought, and no hadeeth except what is in accordance with his teachings, and no Prophet except under the leadership of Ghulam Ahmad.
  • They believe that their book was revealed. Its name is al-Kitaab al-Mubeen and it is different from the Holy Qur’aan.
  • They believe that they are followers of a new and independent religion and an independent Sharee’ah, and that the friends of Ghulam are like the Sahaabah.
  • They believe that Qadian is like Madeenah and Makkah, if not better than them, and that its land is sacred. It is their Qiblah and the place they make hajj to.
  • They called for the abolition of jihaad and blind obedience to the British government because, as they claimed, the British were “those in authority” as stated in the Qur’aan.
  • In their view every Muslim is a Kaafir unless he becomes a Qadiani, and everyone who married a non-Qadiani is also a kaafir.
  • They allow alcohol, opium, drugs and intoxicants.

Intellectual and ideological roots

The westernizing movement of Sir Sayyid Ahmad Khan paved the way for the emergence of the Qadianiyyah, because it had already spread deviant ideas.

The British made the most of this opportunity so they started the Qadiani movement and chose a man from a family that had a history of being agents of the colonialists.

In 1953 CE, there was a popular revolution in Pakistan which demanded the removal of Zafar-Allaah Khan from the position of Foreign Minister and that the Qadiani sect should be regarded as a non-Muslim minority. In this uprising around ten thousand Muslims were martyred, and they succeeded in having the Qadiani minister removed from office.

In Rabee’ al-Awwal 1394 AH (April 1974), a major conference was held by the Muslim World League in Makkah, which was attended by representatives of Muslim organizations from around the world. This conference announced that this sect is Kaafir and is beyond the pale of Islam, and told Muslims to resist its dangers and not to cooperate with the Qadianis or bury their dead in Muslim graveyards.

The Majlis al-Ummah in Pakistan (the central parliament) debated with the Qadiani leader Mirza Naasir Ahmad, and he was refuted by Shaykh Mufti Mahmood (may Allaah have mercy on him). The debate went on for nearly thirty hours but Naasir Ahmad was unable to give answers and the Kufr of this group was exposed, so the Majlis issued a statement that the Qadianis should be regarded as a non-Muslim minority.

Among the factors that make Mirza Ghulam Ahmad an obvious Kaafir are the following:

Mirza Ghulam Ahmad (1835-1908)

Mirza Ghulam Ahmad (1835-1908)

  1. His claim to be a Prophet
  2. His abolition of the duty of jihaad, to serve the interests of the colonialists.
    His saying that people should no longer go on Hajj to Makkah, and his substitution of Qadian as the place of pilgrimage.
  3. His anthropomorphism or likening Allaah to human beings.
  4. His belief in the transmigration of souls and incarnation.
  5. His attributing a son to Allaah and his claim to be the son of God.
  6. His denying that Prophethood ended with Muhammad (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) and his regarding the door of Prophethood to be open to “any Tom, Dick or Harry”.

The Qadianis have strong ties with Israel. Israel has opened centres and schools for them, and helped them to publish a magazine which is their mouthpiece, to print books and publications for distribution worldwide.

The fact that they are influenced by Judaism, Christianity and al-Baatiniyyah is clear from their beliefs and practices, even though they claim to be Muslims.

Their spread and positions of influence

Most of the Qadianis nowadays live in India and Pakistan, with a few in Israel and the Arab world. They are trying, with the help of the colonialists, to obtain sensitive positions in all the places where they live.

The Qadianis are very active in Africa and in some western countries. In Africa they have more than 5,000 teachers and dai’yahs working full-time to call people to Qadianiyyah. Their wide-spread activity proves that they have the support of the colonialists.

The British government is also supporting this movement and making it easy for their followers to get positions in world governments, corporate administration and consulates. Some of them are also high-ranking officers in the secret services.

In calling people to their beliefs, the Qadianis use all kinds of methods, especially educational means, because they are highly-educated and there are many scientists, engineers and doctors in their ranks. In Britain there is a satellite TV channel called Islamic TV which is run by the Qadianis.

From the above, it is clear that:

Qadianiyyah is a misguided group, which is not part of Islam at all. Its beliefs are completely contradictory to Islam, so Muslims should beware of their activities, since the ‘Ulama’ (scholars) of Islam have stated that they are Kaafirs.
