Chanda: An Introduction to Financial Sacrifice

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

Lets talk about Chanda! But first, a word from our sponsors:

اتَّبِعُوا مَن لَّا يَسْأَلُكُمْ أَجْرًا وَهُم مُّهْتَدُونَ
Follow those who do not ask of you [any] payment, and they are [rightly] guided.
Surah Yasin, Verse 21


The Prophet Muhammad صلى الله عليه و سلم directed us to pay 2.5% of one’s end of year savings. This is the absolute minimum Allah has commanded us to give, which is distributed directly to the poor, not even to the Prophet صلى الله عليه و سلم. While giving is good, and truly necessary in some circumstances, the Prophet صلى الله عليه و سلم never made a general mandate to give money except to the poor.

However, the Ahmadiyya faith has created a new law: Chanda. Often described as a “financial sacrifice”, Chanda is a fee paid by all Ahmadis merely for being Ahmadi. This fee, a tithe, is given directly to the religious authorities. Tithes were not a practice of the Prophet Muhammad صلى الله عليه و سلم, and thus constitutes a new religious innovation – a new law created in the faith, despite the claim that Mirza Ghulam was a “non-law-bearing” prophet.

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.

Leadership Crisis in Ahmadiyya

(This post originally contained a link to a picture. After further internal discussion and potential third party legal implications, we have decided to remove that link)

We have recently been exposed to a leaked picture of the Qaid of Hertfordshire in what appears to be a nightclub, the details of which we have decided not to discuss.

What the Qaid gets up to in his own time is his business. We’re not passing judgment on him. And yes, we know that Muslims get up to this kind of thing too. So let’s get this clear from the outset. Nobody is claiming moral superiority here. What we’re calling out is the hate speech of the Ahmadiyya when the facts show that they are morally no different to any other strand in society, which just leaves the cult aspect. Frankly, if Ahmadis aren’t saved, what do they need to pay a cult for?

The Waqf-e-Nau Scandal

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

We have received a damning inside report on the state of the Waqf-e-Nau youngsters in Greater London. It raises serious questions about the way the Ahmadiyya relates to its children and the unhealthy way in which it spies on some of them. Whilst some of the activities described are un-Islamic, the evidence is scant. What is of grave concern is how the privacy of these youngsters and their parents has been breached by the Ahmadiyya, and how the leadership is planning on making an example of them. This report goes right to the top, so “His Holiness” Mirza Masroor Ahmad is implicated.

Mirza Masroor – “Don’t be shy about Mirza’s Prophethood”

It’s official. After the recent MTA3 leaks fiasco, where Ahmadiyya was once again shown to be rotten to the core with lies, hatred and deceit, we learn that Masroor tells Ahmadis to declare the Qadiani Ahmadiyya stance on Mirza Ghulam’s prophethood publicly.

I’ve got news for you Mr. Masroor, many of your followers don’t actually know this. It’s going to make them uncomfortable. There are two angles on this.

An Ahmadi Elder’s Cry of Anguish

as-salaamu `alaykum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakaatuh

The brothers and sisters who run this site regularly receive emails from Qadiani Ahmadis, not so many from Lahori Ahmadis. Some of these are private, and some are public. Many are from younger people, but this is from a slightly older person and it makes for devastating reading. It is a response to the MTA3 leaks published by Fuad al-Attar a few days ago, which brought shock waves to the Ahmadiyya.

I had tears in my eyes and the hairs on the back of my neck were raised at the pain this poor man is feeling. Brother “Asad”, I say to you, the Muslim community will welcome you with open arms into Islam. Remember, once you take shahada and renounce Ahmadiyya, your whole life’s slate will be wiped clean! SubhanAllah!

Arabic MTA-3 Leaks

I was knocked for six when I read hundreds of shocking MTA3’s confidential correspondences. With that letters, emails, tapes and faxes, all the following conclusions about the Ahmadiyya Leaders are confirmed true:

  • Most of the leaders of the Ahmadiyya cult are hypocrites who do not fear Allah (SWT). e.g. the head of Ahmadiyya-Morocco does NOT pray at all, and a senior Egyptian Ahmadi leader wrote dozens of love letters to a married Ahmadi woman.
  • These leaders are certainly experts in dirty and dishonest tactics.
  • Money and UK visa are the real motives of most of the MTA3 (Arabic Ahmadiyya TV) members.
  • Hatred against every Muslim is the real message of the Ahmadiyya leaders.

Ahmadiyya: Propaganda, Deception and Censorship

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

In another embarrassing leak we’ve obtained, it has again become clear that the Ahmadiyya leadership prevents its members from enjoying their right of freedom of speech. All public writing has to be sanctioned by the Ahmadiyya top brass. Ahmadis are forbidden from writing to the media without prior approval and censorship. This amounts to thought control and is practiced only by oppressive cults. Further, Ahmadis are required to disguise their affiliation to the Ahmadiyya cult by using the deceptive front “Muslims Writers Guild of America”.

Ahmadiyya Wedding Nazis – Mass Public Expulsions

Our good friend the Rationalist intercepted this quite remarkable letter revealing a huge list of expulsions and boycotts in America. This is quite disturbing and shows the cult-like mentality of the Qadiani Ahmadiyya.

One has to ask, in mixed gatherings, why is Mirza Masroor so frequently on the ladies side? One has to ask, until we at this site pointed it out, why was Mirza Masroor so fond of eyeing up girls, looking at them straight in the eyes and making them uncomfortable? We’re not talking about just little girls, we’re talking teenagers.

The Qadiani Ahmadiyya has expelled people for mixed gathering weddings for decades of course, but it’s about time their friends in the media were made aware of this less savoury side of their “Love for All, Hatred for None” cuddly character. Although we’re in no position to Islamically condone mixed gathering marriages, a public humiliation of a bunch of families is a particularly cruel way of dealing with the issue. Shame, shame, shame on the Ahmadiyya leadership.

Ahmadis, this is yet another reason for you to leave the cult that does this to keep you afraid and enslaved and for you to join us in Islam.

Respected Amir Sahib observed, “It pains me to share the happenings at a recent wedding in Virginia. On the Thanksgiving weekend this year, children of distinguished families, descendants of Sahabiyan-e Masieh Mou’oud as, were married. The marriage / Walima / Mehndi ceremonies included happenings of dancing, mixed gender gathering etc. These are aspects repeatedly emphasized as wrong for Ahmadies by Hadrat Khalifatul Masieh Al-Khamis as well as Khulafa before him.”

As a result of the above happening, disciplinary actions have been taken which should be announced at a monthly Jama’at meeting as well as at Juma.

I regret to inform that as per the instructions of Respected Amir Sahib, the following individuals are no longer considered the members of Ahmadiyya Muslim Community:

1. Col. Z B, of Research Triangle Jma’at, s/o late A B sahib.

2. Mrs. T B of Research Triangle Jama’at, dlo M Y A sahib.

3. Mr. H B, (the Groom) of Research Triangle Jama’at.

4. Mrs. S M Q (the Bride) of North Virginia Jama’at.

5. Mr. S M Q, of North VA. Jama’at, s/o A M sahib.

6. Mrs. M S Q, of North Virginia Jama’at, dlo K M sahib.

The other individuals, whose list is attached, are disciplined as follows:

1. No Chanda will be accepted from them.

2. No service to the Jama’at will be accepted from them.

3. They will not be allowed to participate in Jama’at functions.

Kindly inform these individuals of the decision and take necessary administrative steps to record and implement this decision.

December 30,2010

(The emphasis is the editor’s, we’ve redacted the full names, leaving initials only)

This embarrassing leak demonstrates once again that the Ahmadiyya is a controlling cult that uses public humiliation and the practice of social boycotts to instill fear into its membership. I would invite all those expelled to turn their backs on this cruel “jamaat” and enter Islam en masse. Let us know if you need any of our American brothers and sisters to support you, we will be happy insha’Allah to welcome you back into the fold. We will recommend that you do your best to follow the sunnah, but we will not expel you from Islam or our communities for not doing so. We will just invite to good, insha’Allah.

This cult is no good for you or your families. Islam is your birthright. Come back to the fold.
