Part 1: The Qadiyyanees

The Qadiyyanees are the followers of Mirza Ghulam Ahmad of Qadiyyan; they are divided into two groups, both of whom are called “Ahmadis.” The first group which is generally known as the Qadiyyanee Group (or Ahmadiyyah Movement in Islaam) believe that Ghulam Ahmad was the promised Mahdi, the promised Messiah, and a Prophet. The Lahori group believe that he (Ghulam Ahmad) was a revivalist (Mujaddid), the promised Mahdi and the promised Messiah.[1] Both groups were declared disbelievers, outside the fold of Islaam by the Pakistan Supreme Court in 1974 and by a meeting a major Scholars in Makkah, Saudi Arabia in 1974 where they were declared disbelievers with a unanimous consensus.


The Qadiyyanees are a spurious and pustule contagion which seek to infect the entire Muslim world with their innovated and heretical beliefs and seek to put themselves forward to the non-Muslim world as the “true Muslims” who are moderate peace loving people that have been wrongfully persecuted by the Muslim communities and governments en masse. This group is the mother group that gave birth to the pseudo-Islaamic black cults and many of these present day cults still rely on the Qadiyyanee works, especially their own version and interpretation of the Noble Quraan which is still used by the Nation of Islaam, Five Percenters and American Muslim Mission. It is their original false interpretations that spawned Moorish American Science Temple (The Ignoble Drew Ali’s Group); the Nation of Islam’s Elijah Poole and Wallace Ford; the Five Percenters Clarence 13 X, and even influenced the beliefs of W.D. Muhammad of the American Muslim Mision.

Mirza Ghulam Ahmad was born between 1839 and 1840, although there is some debate amongst the Qadiyyanees as to his real birth date.[3] Ghulam was born into a family of landlords which though prosperous and affluent in the past were practically reduced to straitened circumstances at the time of his birth. In 1857 his father, Ghulam Murtaza had shown his loyalty to the East India Company and had supplied fifty horses and recruits to the British Army to help them in crushing the fighters of the war of Independence who were called traitors by that government. In exchange he was held in high esteem by the government. The tendency to eulogize the British Government was, therefore ingrained in Ghulam Ahmad from his childhood and continued until his death.[4]


He received some religious education and worked as a court clerk from 1864-1868 when he resigned from service and became busy in the family litigation for the restoration of the family property and in the study of religious literature. At the end of the seventies of the last century he began writing some articles against Christianity and some Hindu groups and often had debates with the followers and the scholars of those religions. He was thus introduced to the Muslim Scholars and the Muslim intelligentsia and gained some popularity amongst them.[5] Through some shifty fundraising he went on to publish the voluminous work Braheemi-Ahmadiyyah. This work gave insight into the heretical teachings of Ghulam Ahmad and established a foundation for his later claims.


The deviations found in this work would later be coupled by the Indians uprising against their British colonizers and his unwavering support for the British, for his works are replete with long insulting passages about the abolition of Jihaad generally and the impermissibility of fighting against the British specifically. As for the numerous observations against Braheemi-Ahmadiyyah, they include but are not restricted to the following, all of which is found between volumes 3 and 4:

1.      Ghulam claimed to have direct communication with Allaah and was addressed by Him directly.

2.      He called his inspiration (Ilham) as Wahy (Revelation) and in anticipating the objection of the Muslim Ummah and its Scholars, he wrote that this was only a dispute over language in that he called divine information Wahy (Revelation) while the Scholars called it Ilham (inspiration).

3.      He was the recipient of secret knowledge and knowledge about future events.

4.      In this age of sin, such a reformer would be like a Messenger.

5.      The appearance of his like resembles the advent of the Prophets.

6.      Though no one can be equal to the Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم), a person could become his shadow (Zil) due to his being a staunch follower of the Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم) and his Sunnah.

7.      The manifestation of the state of behavior in the shadow (Zil) is that of the original Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم).

8.      He would apply “صلى الله عليه وسلم” to the names of the Prophet which he believed referred to himself, but would not put the expression at the end of the Prophet’s other well known names, thus making one understand that when the Prophet was mentioned it was referring to Ghulam.

9.      Ghulam resembled Jesus and that the prediction about the return of Jesus referred to him coming in the literal and manifest sense while it referred to himself (Ghulam) in the spiritual sense.

10.  Allaah sent revelation to Ghulam that the Mosque built adjacent to the building he wrote Brahemi-Ahmadiyyah in is blessed and confers special blessings and that every blessed act will be committed in it.

11.  The appellation of the meanings of verses found in the Quraan to refer to himself and his followers.

12.  His claim that he was appointed by Allaah.

13.  And much, much more![6] 

Throughout Ghulam’s lifetime the fight to expel the British from India would intensify, so did the challenges from the Muslims against Ghulam’s haughty heretical claims but with each attack his boldness and audaciousness would reach a new height with new deluded claims of divinity and more elongated eulogies professing his love for the British colonizers until he eventually claimed absolute prophet-hood and that believing in his prophet-hood was mandated by the Creator, and those who did not believe were “infidels”, “worthy of death,” and those who fought against the British were “bastards” and “scoundrels.” 

The Muslim argument proving the Qadiyyanees are disbelievers outside the fold of Islaam include but are not restricted to the following:


1.      His claim to be a Prophet and the finality of Prophet-hood.

2.      His claim to be Jesus.

3.      His mockery for the religion, debasement of the Sunnah and revilement of Jesus.

4.      His belief that his guidance is better than the guidance of the Prophet Muhammad (صلى الله عليه وسلم).

5.      His abolition of Jihaad.

6.      His trying to give the Polytheists victory over the Muslims.


While there does exist other matters and statements which could also expel Ghulam Ahmad from the fold of Islaam it is our contention to try to restrict the basis of this refutation to the fundamental tenets of the Qadiyyanee belief with the hope that if they are truly sincere, they will either repent from their disbelieving ways and enter the fold of Islaam, or in the very least admit that they are not Muslims practicing the tenets of the original Muslim doctrine.
