How does Qadianism (Ahmadiyyat) differ from Islam
According to the tenet of their faith, the Qadianis (Ahmadis) are required
to study, accept, and follow the works, "revelations" (wahi),
and writings of Mirza Ghulam Qadiani. In his books, Mirza Ghulam Qadiani
makes the claim that he is in direct communication with God and ordains it
upon his followers to believe in
"Islam" according to his
revelations. We have summarized here some of the differences between
Qadianis (Ahmadis) and
Muslims. It should be
obvious that most of the beliefs instructed by Mirza Ghulam Qadiani contradict
verses of the Holy Quran -- not
to mention hundreds of authentic
Hadith and Islamic doctrine.
It is unfortunate that many of the people who have been tricked into accepting
Qadianism (Ahmadiyyat) are unaware of this aspect of the Qadiani (Ahmadi)
doctrine. Since the rituals of Qadianism resembles that of Islam and much
of their terminology is stolen from Islam, many Qadianis are under the impression
that they are following an Islamic school of thought. They continue
to blindly send their donations to the Qadiani (Ahmadi) leadership thinking
they are supporting Islam, when in reality they are helping a non Islamic cult.
For the most part, the followers of Qadianism neither have a good grasp of Islam
nor have access to the complete writings of Mirza Ghulam Qadiani -- which are
mostly written in Urdu -- and are not aware of his various claims.
The following are some of the difference between Islam and Qadianism (Ahmadiyyat
Qadianism (Ahmadiyyat) is based on the belief that Mirza was an improved second
reincarnation of hazrat Muhammad(SAW).
Qadianism (Ahmadiyyat) rejects the concept of absolute Finality of Prophethood
in hazrat Muhammad(SAW),
as confirmed in Quran, Hadith, Sunnah of the Holy Prophet(SAW), Tradition of Companions, the writings of Muslim Scholars
and personalities, and concensus of the entire Ummah for almost 1500 years.
Qadianism (Ahmadiyyat) maintains that Mirza Ghulam Qadiani was a Prophet
(nabi and rasul) of God.
Qadianism (Ahmadiyyat) rejects the concept of completion of the revelations of
Allah(SWT) in the Holy Quran.
Qadianism (Ahmadiyyat) holds that Mirza Ghulam Qadiani's revelations (Books)
were on the same level as all prior revelations (Quran, Bible, Torah). In their view, simply following Quran and Sunnah, as Muslims have done since the beginning of Islam, is not a basis for living a righteous life and gaining the pleasure of the Creator. Interestingly, the Qadiani leadership has refused to allow a translation of these books, so that everyone may become familiar with the irrational teachings and contradictory claims of the founder of their organization.
Qadianism (Ahmadiyyat) rejects authentic Hadith based
on Mirza's alleged revelations and teaches his personal interpretation of
the Holy Quran. Qadiani
(Ahmadiyya) leadership has forged several unauthentic translations of the
Holy Quran to try to confuse and mislead uninformed individuals.
Qadianism (Ahmadiyyat) teaches that
had been crucified, but did not die from his injuries. Instead, it advocates the view that
Jesus(pbuh) recovered from his injuries,
escaped to Kashmir (India), where he lived for another 86 years, and is buried there.
Whereas Jesus(pbuh) is acknowledged as a great prophet of Allah in Islam, Mirza Ghulam took the liberty of making demeaning and vulgar remarks against him and his honored mother, rejected his miracles, belittled his mission and denied his return before the Day of Judgment. It is such unbecoming teachings that have resulted in hateful retributions by extremist Christians evangelical groups against Muslims, Prophet Muhammad(SAW), and Islam.
Qadianism (Ahmadiyyat) maintains that Mirza Ghulam Qadiani was "the promised Messiah".
The Qadianis (Ahmadis) reject the advent of Jesus Christ(pbuh), son of Mary, as
the Messiah, just before the Day of Judgment.
Qadianism (Ahmadiyyat) teaches that Mirza Ghulam Qadiani was also the promised
Mahdi (guided one).
Qadianism (Ahmadiyyat) teaches that Mirza Ghulam Qadiani was also the expected Hindu lord, Krishna.
Qadianism (Ahmadiyyat) intollerantly declares the entire manking, except for those who
naively accept the irrational notions and contradictory claims of Mirza Ghulam Qadiani, to be unbelievers and bound for hell. Qadiani leadership has announced all Muslims to be unbelievers and has forbidden its followers from wedding their daughters to Muslims, praying behind Muslims, and offering prayer on their deceased - be it a child or an adult.
Qadianism (Ahmadiyyat) teaches that struggle for freedom, independence and self-determination against the tyranny, extremism and oppression (Jihad) of those military powers that support Qadianism has been made Haraam.
At its birth, being a protoge of the oppressive British Empire of the time, Qadianism (Ahmadiyyat) required complete devotion and obedience to the British Government, as an article of faith. While freedom loving people around the globe were rising up against the British subjugation, Qadianis were being required to be willing to sacrifice their wealth, talent, and soul in the cause of the Crown. Britain is presently the headquarter of the Qadiani Movement.
Qadianism (Ahmadiyyat) holds two cities in India (Qadian) and Pakistan
(Rabwah) as holy as
(Ahmadiyya) are supposed to perform
Hajj by attending their
annual congregation, instead of visiting Mekkah.
Qadianism (Ahmadiyyat) maintains that Mirza Ghulam Qadiani was superior
to all the
Qadianism (Ahmadiyyat) refers to the companions of Mirza Ghulam Qadiani
as Sahaba and his wives as Mother of the Believers (Ummahatul
Qadianism (Ahmadiyyat) advances the notion that many verses of the
Holy Quran were revealed to Mirza Ghulam Qadiani and that many of the praises
in Quran, were really intended for Mirza Ghulam Qadiani.
Qadianism (Ahmadiyyat) claims Mirza's
Mosque at Qadian (India) to
References to the Qadiani books requiring these beliefs are provided on various
articles at this site. If you have been tricked into accepting Qadianism
(Ahmadiyyat) without being told of these and other truths, please be assured
that our quotes are based on authentic writings of the founders of that
organization. What you have fallen in love with is Islam and not Qadianism.
The door of salvation remains open to all, but you will need to take
the first step, you must be seeking the truth to receive guidance.
Has not the Time arrived for the Believers that their hearts in all humility
should engage in the remembrance of Allah and of the Truth which has been
revealed (to them), and that they should not become like those to whom was
given Revelation aforetime, but long ages passed over them and their hearts
grew hard? For many among them are rebellious transgressors.
(The Holy Quran, Al-Hadid, 57:16)
Allah(SWT) to guide all sincere
individuals to the right path and save them from the mischievous ploys of
the enemies of Islam.
