Murder of Dr. Mehdi Qamar Ali

بسم الله الحمد لله و صلاة و سلام على من لا نبي بعده

Few things are more embarrassing to us ex-Ahmadis than the persecution of Ahmadis in Pakistan. As you probably have heard, Dr. Mehdi Qamar Ali was murdered about a week ago outside bahishti maqbara in Rabwah. The American-based doctor was visiting Rabwah to volunteer at the Tahir Heart Institute. Naturally, I was disgusted and I’m sure all of us who frequent thecult felt similarly despite our criticisms of Ahmadiyya. We ask Allah to grant his family patience and to bring his murderers to justice.

Ameen

Which Ahmediyyat?

In the name of Allah, the Most Beneficent, The Most Merciful

Speaking as a non-Ahmedi Ahmedi, I was always taught that Ahmediyyat is the only united Islam, that we have a unified movement. I was told that there was only one split in Ahmediyyat. But there are more than just two kinds, there are many!

Today we are going to go through a list of various Ahmediyyat sects and groups.

The first in the lineup is the Jamaat Ahmediyyat Islah Pasand. They follow Abdul Ghaffar Janbah, who says he is Ghulam-e-Massihuzaman (Musleh Maud) and Khalifatullah. Here is a trailer of their fourth Jalsa Salana.

He frequently says that Allah has given him revelation, prophecies and other ilhams. He gained enough attention and popularity to openly debate the Ansar Raza Saab. The title of this debate is “Debate between Dr Aamir and Moulvi Ansar Raza”.

The second group is the Ahmediyyat Community, led by UK-based Mirza Masroor Ahmed. He also claims to be Khalifatullah. Here is a picture of him with the Ontarian Premier.

His website is http://www.alislam.org/

The third in our line-up is Green Ahmediyyat, founded by Mirza Rafi Ahmed, whom they call “Mahmood-e-Sani Confidant of Ayub-e-Ahmadiyyat Harzrat Sahibzada Mirza Rafi Ahmed (AS)”. He is pictured below.

Their website is http://greenahmadiyyat.org/

Fourth is Jamaat Ul Sahih Al Islam. It is headed by Munir Ahmad Azim. In addition to the previously mentioned, he also claims to be Khalifatullah. They claim that the sect of Mirza Masroor Ahmed is persecuting him and his followers.

What I like about this group is that they not say that Mirza Masroor Ahmed is not following the true teachings of Ahmediyyat, but neither is Abdul Ghaffar Janbah. A recent blog post argues exactly that, you can read it here: http://sahih-al-islam.blogspot.com/2014/03/musleh-maoud-declaration-of-20-february.html

Their official website is: http://www.jamaat-ul-sahih-al-islam.com/.

Fifth on the list is the Jamaat Ahmadiyya Al-Mouslemeen. They are headed by Zafrullah Domun, who also claims to be the Khalifatullah. He is pictured below:

They claim to be the true followers of Ahmediyyat and ague that the mainstream Ahmedis and their leaders have gone astray. He has written an open letter to the leaders of the mainstream Ahmedi sect.

His community’s website is: http://www.jaam-international.org/

Sixth on our list is Jamaat Ahmediyyat Haqiqi, led by Nasir Ahmad Sultani, pictured below. He also claims to be true Khalifatullah and a divine reformer of the Ahmediyyat.

nasir

At least he has the same pagri style as Mirza Ghulam Ahmed Sahib!

Here is a video of him giving one of his khutbahs

He also held a debate with Ansar Raza Sahib here:

This Jamaat is growing and has converted many from the followers of Mirza Masroor Ahmed. His website, http://al-ahmadiyyat.com/official/ boasts many converts from other Ahmediyya sects.

Seventh is Anwar-ul Islam Nigeria. They were formerly part of the sect of Mirza Masroor Ahmed Sahib, but broke apart to establish their own autonomy in Nigeria. The details are unclear, but the dispute arose because of a legal battle between Masroor Sahib’s sect and the Nigerian community, which eventually led to a division. Their website is here: http://www.anwarulislam.com/

Finally is the famous Lahori Sect, officially known as Ahmadiyya Anjuman Isha’at-e-Islam Lahore, founded by Maulana Muhammad Ali. He argued that his interpretations of the teachings of Mirza Ghulam Ahmed are the true teachings and the Qadian-based sects do not truly follow his teachings. He is pictured below, preaching in Karachi in the 1940s.

So take your pick! Which Ahmediyyat sect do you want to follow!

Will the real Ahmedi Mullah please stand up!!!

We hope and pray that Ahmedis will see the ridiculousness of this false religion and come back to the original Islam. Do not follow new religions and sects! Ameen!!!

Life After Ahmadiyya

The following is an email that we received.
(We have only redacted the names mentioned in the email)

Asalam alaykum dear brothers,

I write to you today wishing you all the best of fortune with your
excellent website that helps people who are confused about who Mirza
Ghulam of Qadian was and what his beliefs consisted of.

Alhamdulilah me and my wife have removed the filth of Mirza Ghulam’s
false belief from our life and for this we are most thankful to Allah
the Supreme, the Most Merciful.

I was in the darkness of Ahmadiyya for over 3 years due to being told
many lies about their beliefs. I was never told directly that Mirza
Ghulam claimed to be a prophet of Allah, much less that he then
claimed to be the second coming of the Holy Prophet Mohammad (peace
and blessings upon him) and subsequently greater than the Holy
Prohphet (pbuh)!

I was fortunate enough to not be separated from my dear wife after I
left the falsehood of Mirza Ghulam for too long as she showed courage
in reading Mirza Ghulam’s writings and found for herself that she
had been kept in darkness her whole life. As you know many
Ahmadis/Qadianis do not know the original disgraceful beliefs held by
Mirza Ghulam. They are kept in a false world and because they do not
openly mix with other Muslims they do not ever have good opportunities
to examine the writings of their founder, Mirza Ghulam who, by any
measure of a human being is by far one of the filthiest that have ever
existed.

My wife’s family are still Ahmadi and are strongly against us both.
However I do not mention my wife’s name in order to respect her wish
of minimizing the alleged ‘pain’ she is causing them by denouncing
Ahmadiyya. I however will not remain quiet as I wish to actively warn
people of the filthy writings and beliefs held by Mirza Ghulam.
Mirza’s beliefs are like a cancer and they must be prevented from
spreading amongst unsuspecting well-intentioned Muslims and
non-Muslims.

We have created a website that we hope can offer assistance to people
who have left or are thinking of leaving Ahmadiyya. We know how
difficult it is for them coming out of an extremely closed community
such as Ahmadiyya and we will offer support via Email, Telephone and
in person (In London, England). The website address is:

www.islamafterahmadiyya.com

We would like to kindly request you to link our website to your
website so that more Ahmadi brothers and sisters can receive support
in leaving the kufr of Mirza Ghulam’s beliefs. We don’t wish harm
on any innocent Ahmadis who have been kept in the dark since they were
born. Insha Allah they can wake up and see that Mirza Ghulam was such
a despicable man whom I would not even pray next to, let alone pray
behind, if he were alive today.

I would like to thank you for the excellent effort you have put in
with your website, May Allah Help you in all your endeavours.

Asalam alaykum wa rahmat Allah wa barakatahu,

What’s the Difference Between a Rasul and Nabi, and Is the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) the Last of Both?

بسم الله الحمد لله و صلاة و سلام على سيدنا محمد و على آله و سلم تسليما

Seekers Guidance is an internet Islamic educational institution that teaches belief, law, spirituality, and other related topics. All for free.

They recently answered the following question on the difference between a Rasul and Nabi and whether Saydina Muhammad صلى الله عليه و سلم is the last prophet or last messenger. Note that it was not answered in an argumentative manor or in the spirit of debate, but just as a response to a general inquiry.

The original link is here. Re-posted below:


Answered by Sidi Wasim Shiliwala

Question: 1. What is the difference between a rasul and a nabi?
2. Is the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) the last of both?
3. What about in our times when people receive messages from Allah?

Answer: Walaikum As-salaam wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuhu,

Firstly, may Allah reward you for your concern on such an important subject! Knowledge of revelation and prophecy is a crucial element of our creed (aqida), as it helps us understand the unique and special characteristics of the various Prophets (upon them be peace).

The Difference between a Prophet (nabi) and a Messenger (rasul)

In his commentary on the famous text of Sunni creed Jawhara al-Tawhid, Imam al-Bajuri provides useful definitions of the terms you asked about in your first question.

He defines a prophet (nabi) as a human being who is “free from all repulsive qualities, [and] given a revealed law that he enacts, even if he was not commanded to spread it.”

In contrast, Imam al-Bajuri defines a messenger (rasul) as someone who has the qualities of a prophet “but with the additional stipulation [of him being] commanded to spread [his message].”

In other words, the main difference between a prophet and a messenger pertains to spreading the revealed message (tabligh): messengers only include those commanded to spread the revelation they receive, while prophets include both those who received that command and those who didn’t. This means, as Imam al-Bajuri explains, that “every messenger is a prophet, but not vice-versa.” [Bajuri, Tuhfat al-Murid `ala Jawharat at-Tawhid]

The Final Prophet and Messenger (peace be upon him)

In the 40th verse of Surah Al-Ahzab, Allah calls Muhammad (peace be upon him) the “messenger of Allah and the seal of the prophets” (khatam al-nabi’in). Given that the definition of a prophet is broader than that of a messenger, this verse indicates that Muhammad (peace be upon him) is the last of the prophets as well as the last of the messengers.

Indeed, this one line teaches us two important facts about the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him). Firstly, he (peace be upon him) was a messenger of Allah, meaning that he received revelation and was also commanded by Allah to spread that message. Secondly, he (peace be upon him) is the final prophet, meaning that no one after him will receive revelation. Indeed, even ‘Isa/Jesus (peace be upon him) will rule by the laws of Islam upon his return to earth.

The finality of this message is even further emphasized by Allah in one of the last verses He revealed to the Prophet (peace be upon him): “Today I have perfected your religion for you, completed My favor upon you, and approved Islam for you as a religion” (5:3). [For a more complete discussion of 33:40, see the relevant commentary from Mufti Muhammad Shafi’s Ma’ariful Qur’an]

Between Prophecy and Sainthood

Before discussing the differences between Prophets and Saints, it is first important to understand who a wali (saint) is. Imam al-Bajuri defines a wali as “a knower of God the Exalted and His attributes as much as is possible, one who is diligent to obedience [of God, and] an avoider of sins – meaning that he does not commit a sin without repenting [for it].” What’s important to note here is that the awliya (plural of wali) achieve their nearness to Allah only through following the Prophet (peace be upon him).

According to Sunni creed, it is possible for miracles (karamaat) to be manifested at the hands of the awliya. For example, the Caliph Umar ibn al-Khattab (may Allah be pleased with him) miraculously warned faraway Muslim troops of an oncoming enemy. Similarly, while revelation (wahy) is specifically given to prophets, Allah also might speak to His righteous servants in dreams (ilham) or give them deep spiritual insights (kashf). It is related, for example, that Imam Ahmad ibn Hanbal spoke with Allah in a dream, wherein Allah told him that reciting the Qur’an is a means of achieving closeness to Him. [Bajuri, Tuhfat]

However, such miraculous events differ from Prophetic miracles (mu’jizaat) and revelation (wahy) in that they are not accompanied by any claim to Prophecy or revelation. Rather, they are personal gifts and blessings bestowed by Allah to his righteous servants. As such, they are not and cannot be used to alter the perfected guidance brought by the Prophet (peace be upon him). Furthermore, they are in reality miracles of the Prophet (peace be upon him), as such miracles occur only to those who wholeheartedly strive to follow his sunnah, both in terms of his inner character and outer actions. Such miracles confirm the exalted status of the Prophetic way. [Sabuni, Al-Bidaya fi Usul al-Din]

Conclusion – the Best Guidance is that of the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him)

The above paragraphs convey the following crucial points about prophecy:

1. Muhammad (peace be upon him), as a prophet and messenger, was given revelation and commanded to spread it;
2. Muhammad (peace be upon him) was the final prophet and messenger; and
3. Awliya may receive miracles and divine inspiration, but they cannot in any way alter the already complete message of Islam. To the contrary, such miracles only confirm the soundness and blessing of the Prophetic way, and are therefore miracles of the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him).

With all of this in mind, we should come to the conclusion that all true religious guidance comes from the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him), and that we only accept that knowledge which is connected to him through the Qur’an, Sunnah, and sound Muslim scholarship. Anyone who calls to other than this, or claims to have religious knowledge that contradicts this, must be avoided.

Allah knows best, and He is the best of Guiders.

Jazakum Allahu Khairan,

How do we treat our women?

Cult Girl Confessions released a scathing recent personal testimony of how women are really treated in the UK Ahmadiyya community. You can read it here: http://cultgirlconfessions.blogspot.com/2012/02/this-is-cult-he-used-to-be-my-leader.html

Divine Caliphate or Dictatorship?

(Note: This piece contains numerous hyperlinks which need to be explored to substantiate the points)

Kim Jong-Il the long ruling dictator of North Korea has died. Over the years he was given a divine like status by the state propaganda machine. According to state propaganda his birth was prophesized by a swallow and heralded by a double rainbow and his life was, apparently, not any less eventful with many miraculous events being attributed to him, such as having the ability to even control the weather. In describing his death, the state media declared it caused the heavens and earth to shake and magical writing appeared on the side of a mountain. All this religious fervour, bizarrely, comes from an atheistic communist party.

News channels around the world have been showing some remarkable images of North Koreans mourning the death.  Many people found the whole spectacle somewhat baffling, given what this man has done to his people over the years. Kim Jong-Il and his party have made North Korea into one of the most closed and isolated countries in the world. The citizens are denied freedom, access to the most basic of amenities is forbidden such as imported food, mobile phones, movies, internet, and the state apparatus monitors the words and movement of everyone. Yet these draconian rules don’t apply to everyone, all that is forbidden to North Koreans lay people is readily enjoyed by the ruling elite and in particular the dictator or ‘dear leader’ as everyone is taught to call him. In the 1990’s as many as 3.5 million North Koreans died of starvation, while the dictator and his cronies wallowed in luxuries. While children died of lack of food, the ‘dear leader’ was eating imported lobster and drinking champagne, whilst watching his collection of 20,000 Hollywood movies.

Yet Kim Jong-Il’s behaviour and hypocrisy is not unique to him, everywhere across the world where ever we find dictators, we find this pattern of behaviour. Dictatorship can be defined as totalitarian rule by one or a few group of people. The power of rule is often obtained through force or inheritance and is maintained through a propaganda instilling a combination of fear and idolization of the dictator. Most dictatorships transform into hereditary dictatorships, where power is held and transferred through a single family.

The Muslim world has more than its fair share of hereditary dictators, what then does Islam have to say on the matter? Well a very interesting hadith tackles the subject very nicely, in which the Prophet (صلى الله عليه و سلم) prophesizes the political leadership of the Muslim Ummah as follows:

From Hudhayfah that the Prophet (صلى الله عليه و سلم) said:

“The Prophethood will remain amongst you for as long as Allah wills it to be. Then Allah will raise it when He wills to raise it. Then there will be the khilafah upon the Prophetic methodology. And it will last for as long as Allah wills it to last. Then Allah will raise it when He wills to raise it. Then there will be biting kingship, and it will remain for as long as Allah wills it to remain. Then Allah will raise it when He wills to raise it. Then there will be tyrannical (forceful) kingship and it will remain for as long as Allah wills it to remain. Then He will raise it when He wills to raise it. Then there will be a khilafah upon the Prophetic methodology. Then he (the Prophet) صلى الله عليه و سلم was silent.”
[Reported by Ahmad and Abu Dawud.]

Let us list the stages outlined the hadith

  1. Prophethood of the Prophet (صلى الله عليه و سلم)
  2. Rightly guided Caliphate (Just and righteous rule)
  3. Hereditary rule (Kingship)
  4. Oppressive hereditary rule (Dictatorship)
  5. Rightly guided Caliphate (Just and righteous rule restored)

Looking at the history of the Muslim Ummah, we can see this prophecy has unfolded step by step. The rightly guided period of the Khulafa Rashidun upon the Prophet’s (صلى الله عليه و سلم) Sunnah, is characterised by the following:

  1. The rule was not hereditary, i.e. it was not held and transferred by a single family.
  2. There was ‘rule of law’ where the Khalifa could be held to account by a judge or even a layperson.
  3. The Khalifa’s role was one of serving the people and not for personal benefit.
  4. The Khulafa shunned an opulent and luxurious life, despite the huge wealth coming into the possession of the state. For example after Muslims liberated Jerusalem, Sayidina Umar entered the city on foot (while his servant was riding a on a camel) wearing clothes with patches on them and refused to wear luxurious clothing.

Some scholars have commented that the Muslim Ummah is now in the 4th stage of the prophecy, namely oppressive hereditary rule. But given the recent events unfolding in what has been labelled the ‘Arab Spring,’ which has seen the end of hereditary rule we may well be moving towards the 5th stage of a just and righteous rule. (see this link for a very interesting lecture by Imam Suhaib Webb on this) The central point I wish to take make is that the 4th period is referring to oppressive hereditary dictatorship and it is a stark contrast from the rightly guided period of Khulafa Rashidun.

Now let us turn our attention to Ahmadiyya in light of what we have discussed so far. Ahmadiyya leaders claim that they have entered the 5th period of a Khilafah based on prophetic rule. They claim that the so-called Khalifas of Ahmadiyya are a fulfilment of the prophecy in this hadith.

But when we examine the claim of the leaders of Ahmadiyya, we see that it not only falls short of prophetic standard, it outright contradicts it. The first thing we note about the Ahmadiyya nizaam is that it has never been political rule, which goes against the entire theme of the hadith, which refers to political rule.

Ahmadis have tried to argue that since ‘Isa ibn Maryam will end the jizya it indicates the rule will not be political. This argument clearly makes no sense; a person who is not in office cannot pass, amend or repeal legislation.

The next thing to consider is the question of accountability, Is the Ahmadiyya khalifa and the ruling elite, accountable to anyone? The answer is a resounding no. There is no system of accountability available to average Ahmadis to question whether Islamic law is being adhered to.

The other striking thing about the Ahmadiyya nizaam is that it has not ended a hereditary system (which contradicts the method of the way of the Khulafa Rashidun), but instead enshrined a hereditary dictatorship. After the demise of the first Khalifa, every single so called Khalifa of Ahmadiyya has been from the same ruling family.

Then we come to lifestyle, can we say that the so called Khalifas of Ahmadiyya are living a life of simplicity, like the Khulafa Rashidun who gave away their wealth shunning opulence and luxuries? It is clear that Ahmadi Khalifas have in fact been doing the opposite, amassing huge wealth.  After all, how many people do you know that can afford to pay more than £40,000 to someone for looking after their horses? This is all happening while average Ahmadis and their families are forced to make personal sacrifices and live a frugal life, the leadership brazenly wallow in luxury in their own VIP areas. Does this all sound familiar?

A neutral observer will note that the Ahmadiyya nizaam has more in common with the hereditary dictatorship of Kim Jong-Il of North Korea than the rightly guided Khulafa Rashidun.

In fact the similarities between Ahmadiyya and the dictatorship of Kim Jong-Il are very striking. Similarities include creating a closed and insular community controlled by fear and propaganda, veneration of hereditary leadership based around the ‘cult of personality,’ the iconological use of the dictator’s portrait in homes and public spaces (see this), restriction and control of interactions with outside world (in particular with Muslims),  banning  the use of social networks such as Facebook, preventing women from having equal participation, monitoring the movements and behaviour of individuals, banning visiting cinema. Even the food distribution in the annual Jalsa is like North Korea, an unequal two tier system, where the elite eat meat and the masses eat beans.

It is just like George Orwell’s book ‘Animal Farm’, where the ruling pigs announce “All animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others.” (A book everyone should read, especially Ahmadis)

External observers find the emotional attachment of the oppressed to their oppressor puzzling, how is it that they cannot see what is being done to them? The Ahmadiyya hereditary dictatorship, like that of the dictatorship of Kim Jong-Il, maintains its control on its followers by appealing to their superstitions and also through a system of indoctrination from an early age; compare the Waqf-e-Nau with THIS.

Every year thousands of North Koreans wake up from their nightmare and escape. With their new found freedom they are amazed by how they were so taken in by the state propaganda and not surprisingly former Ahmadis say exactly the same thing.

In The Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire, Edward Gibbon describes Sayidina Umar (the liberator of Jerusalem and Persia) in the following terms:

“Yet the abstinence and humility of Umar were not inferior to the virtues of Abu Bakr: his food consisted of barley bread or dates; his drink was water; he preached in a gown that was torn or tattered in twelve places; and a Persian satrap, who paid his homage as to the conqueror, found him asleep among the beggars on the steps of the mosque of Muslims”
That gives us some indication of what standards we are speaking of when we speak about the rightly guided Caliphate based on the Prophet’s (صلى الله عليه و سلم) Sunnah, which is clearly distinct from oppressive hereditary dictatorships.

We prayer Allah frees humanity from all forms of oppressive dictatorships.

Ahmadiyya and Ribaa

 بسم الله الحمد لله و صلاة و سلام على رسول الله و على آله و سلم

It is common knowledge that Ribaa (usury) is haraam in Islam. Allah says in the Qur’an,

[3.130] O you who have believed, do not consume usury, doubled and multiplied, but fear Allah that you may be successful.
[4:161And [for] their taking of usury while they had been forbidden from it, and their consuming of the people’s wealth unjustly. And we have prepared for the disbelievers among them a painful punishment.
[30:39And whatever you give for interest to increase within the wealth of people will not increase with Allah. But what you give in zakah, desiring the countenance of Allah – those are the multipliers.
[2:275] Those who consume interest cannot stand [on the Day of Resurrection] except as one stands who is being beaten by Satan into insanity. That is because they say, “Trade is [just] like interest.” But Allah has permitted trade and has forbidden interest. So whoever has received an admonition from his Lord and desists may have what is past, and his affair rests with Allah . But whoever returns to [dealing in interest or usury] – those are the companions of the Fire; they will abide eternally therein.

In fact, Ribaa is the only thing that Allah سبحانه و تعلى and his Messenger صلى الله عليه و سلم declare war on in the entire Qur’an:

[2:278-279] O you who have believed, fear Allah and give up what remains [due to you] of interest, if you should be believers. And if you do not, then be informed of a war [against you] from Allah and His Messenger. But if you repent, you may have your principal – [thus] you do no wrong, nor are you wronged.

The Holy Prophet صلى الله عليه و سلم said,
Narrated by Abdullah ibn Mas’ud: The Apostle of Allah (peace be upon him) cursed the one who accepted usury, the one who paid it, the witness to it, and the one who recorded it. (Sunan of Abu Dawood, Hadith 3327)

The Ahmadiyya community on the other hand, an organisation whose founder claimed to be the reviver of Islam, an organisation that sees itself as the saved sect of Islam, has no qualms in accepting interest. The following table was taken from the website of the Charity Commission that shows the interest income of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Association United Kingdom in 2010:

(Annual Reports and Financial Statements 2010, p. 10)

Bank interest income in 2009:(Annual Reports and Financial Statements 2009, p. 9)

Bank interest income in 2008:(Annual Reports and Financial Statements 2008, p. 9)

The justification given by the Jamaat:(Annual Reports and Financial Statements 2009, p. 15)

How can that serve as justification? While the income from interest may be small compared to the overall income, it’s the principle that counts. Allah سبحانه و تعلى clearly forbids interest but according to the Ahmadiyya Community receiving interest payments is acceptable if it’s used for the propagation of Islam. Now, ordinary Ahmadis have to ask themselves: If that was permissible, would Allah سبحانه و تعلى not have given the Prophet صلى الله عليه و سلم permission to charge interest in order to help with the wars that the Muslims had to fight? Funds were desperately needed yet Allah سبحانه و تعلى never gave permission to charge interest.

Furthermore we have Lord Tariq Ahmad and leaders of the Ahmadiyya Community allowing the use of interest based mortgages (@ 34:00):

Funny enough, Mirza Masroor, the leader of the Ahmadiyya Cult, himself preaches openly against interest, keeping ordinary Ahmadis in the dark about the Jamaat’s own dealings. They know that most Ahmadis will not question the Jamaat and will not bother looking up the financial statements of the Jamaat. Mirza Masroor devoted a whole Friday sermon on this topic:

“Huzur said usury/interest can result in horrendous consequences, rendering well-off people bankrupt and destroying their family life in the process. (…)
Someone once asked the Promised Messiah (on whom be peace) about borrowing money on interest due to being in a vulnerable position. He responded that Allah arranges for one who relies and puts his/her trust in Allah and that usury/interest was as much of a sin as adultery, theft etc. (…)
Islam allows the eating of the flesh of swine in extreme cases (2:174); however usury/interest is not permissible under any circumstances as the Qur’an states in Surah Al Baqarah (2:279).”

This is another case of Ahmadiyya hypocrisy. Telling their people one thing while practicing the exact opposite. Ahmadis should question their leadership about this. How can they justify receiving interest for the propagation of Islam when Allah سبحانه و تعلى clearly forbids interest. Why does your Khalifa not practice what he preaches?

Many banks in the UK (such as Lloyds TSB or HSBC) offer Islamic business accounts. The Jamaat could have used any of those banks and avoid receiving interest payments. There is really no excuse left for the Jamaat to justify its bank interest income.

Is Ahmadiyya really the true Islam? Evidence, as shown above, speaks to the contrary.

Al-Jazeera’s Stream discussion After-Thoughts

بسم الله الحمد لله و صلاة و سلام على رسول الله و على آله و سلم تسليما

After a recent approach by Al-Jazeera to the team at Thecult.info, today there was an excellent discussion between Akber Choudhry, the representative from the Ahmadiyya Awareness team, and Amjad Khan, a member of the Ahmadiyya religion on Al-Jazeera’s Stream programme. As the discussion progressed, it became clear that the points raised by Mr. Choudhry were causing Mr. Khan to become visibly uncomfortable. Most notably, Mr. Khan repeatedly lied on international TV concerning the following points:

  1. Mirza Masroor’s banning of individual Ahmadis’ Facebook pages;
  2. The Ahmadiyya doctrine that Muslims are not Muslims;
  3. Denying that they routinely associate average Muslims with the worst Islamophobic stereotypes (ie, ‘mullahs’ or ‘terrorists’);

This is the first time in a century that some of the Ahmadiyya beliefs and cult-like practices have been exposed to the full glare of the international media spotlight and faced with the bald facts, Mr. Khan and the Ahmadiyya were caught woefully short. We’re not surprised.

Gressenhall Road: Mirza Masroor’s New Palace

بسم الله الحمد لله و صلاة و سلام على رسول الله و على آله و سلم
