بسم الله الحمد لله و صلاة و سلام على رسول الله و على اله و سلم تسليم
TheCult is a blog dedicated to calling Ahmadis from the falsehood of Mirza Ghulam and Ahmadiyya to the truth from the Prophet Muhammad صلى الله عليه و سلم and Islam. We consist of a diverse group of contributors, focusing on pure Islamic belief, history, social commentary on the Ahmadi organization and many other topics.
TheCult has its roots with four Muslims – two of them reverts from Ahmadiyya to Islam. It began with a vision and now encompasses the work of many able contributors, first on the forum, and now on this blog. The team has since expanded and is now comprised of five Muslims.
The main difference between Islam and Ahmadiyya is related to prophethood. According to Islam, we believe that Muhammad صلى الله عليه و سلم is the last and final prophet who was sent to humanity. This is the original belief as shared by all Muslims since the time of the Prophet Muhammad صلى الله عليه و سلم and universally accepted from South America to Muslim China, and all in between. (‘Esa bin Maryam عليه السلام was made a prophet before Muhammad صلى الله عليه و سلم so his return does not create a contradiction.) As the Prophet Muhammad عليه صلاة و سلام said, “I am the Seal of the Prophets, there is no prophet after me”.
However, Ahmadiyya believes that Mirza Ghulam is a prophet after Muhammad صلى الله عليه و سلم and therefore reinterprets or rejects any and all statements or ayaat that say otherwise. The inclusion of new prophets, and his subsequent religious introductions, segments Islam from Ahmadiyya, as two distinct religions.
We wholeheartedly reject any forms of violence or persecution against Ahmadis based purely on the religion they espouse. Such behavior is not only against Islamic practice, it is highly counter-productive as it only sends Ahmadis into a siege-mentality, whereby they are less likely to accept the Truth. Rather, we opt for respectful dialog with the aim of inviting Ahmadis from Ahmadiyya to Islam.
Our aim is to uphold the Truth and to invite to Islam. And ultimately it is Allah who guides.
