Ahmadiyya Awarenewss Campaign
5th September 1997
In the name of Allah, the One and Only
His Love and Peaceful Blessings may eternally shower on Muhammad, Mercy for all the worlds
After whom there is no prophet.
Those who are disbelievers and die and remain infidels, upon them is the curse of Allah and of Angels and the Whole Mankind. (al-Quran 2:161)

Alterations in Holy Quran

by Mirza Ghulam of Qadian

Dr. Syed Rashid Ali
Ahmadiyya Movement and its adherents have been denying for a long time that the founder of their movement, Mirza Ghulam, has ever made any alteration in the Holy Quran. A Qadiani follower recently wrote on a usenet newsgroup, alt.religion.islam:
In this article, I will InshaAllah explode this myth. We will see that whether Mullahs have been lying blatantly for the last 100 years or whether there is deliberate attempt to cover-up these facts by successive generations of Qadiani/Ahmadi followers and their leaders.
Alterations can be done in several ways:
Close scrutiny of the writings of Mirza Ghulam Ahmad tell us that he had been guilty of doing all three acts of desecration. Now let me provide proof of my statements.

Alteration in the Text of Holy Quran

Browse to these links and you will discover an example of such alteration in the Original Arabic Text of Holy Quran. Surfer will also notice that successive editions have retained what was written by Mirza Ghulam Ahmad but with the changing atmosphere, Ahmadiyya Movement is changing its tactics. They want to cover up all the footsteps leading them away from Islam. Hence the new edition reprinted in 1984 from Islamabad in UK, under the direction of Mirza Tahir Ahmad, has altered what was written by Mirza Ghulam Ahmad on the pretext that it was a typing error. Amazing that Mirza Ghulam Ahmad did not attempt to correct this typing error during his lifetime nor anyone else attempted to correct it in the last 100 years although several editions have come out of these writings. Another surprising thing is that the same error has been repeated in different books! Typist must have been very cautious to repeat the same typing error for different verses in various books.

Alteration in the Meanings of Holy Quran

There are plenty of such examples. The most famous being the verse 33:40: Contrary to what Holy Prophet has told us about the Finality of Prophethood and what Muslims right from the time of Syedna Muhammad  till today have consistently believed, and will continue to believe InshaAllah till the Day of Judgement, Mirza Ghulam Ahmad and his creed tell us that: No! No! This Seal (Khatam) is not the seal of Finality of Prophethood, it is the seal of approval of future prophets.

But then, after sneaking through this back door of prophethood, Mirza Ghulam closes it again by saying:

What do you call such a man, who steals the title Khatam-un-Nabieen from the Holy Prophet?

Another example of alteration in the meanings:

Alteration in the application of verse of Quran

Holy Quran is full of verses in which Allah is praising His Most beloved Prophet Muhammad. Those who are reading the Quran are familiar with such verses.

For example:

For the last 1400 years Muslims of all schools of thoughts have unanimously agreed that these and other such verses are revealed by Allah exclusively to glorify, praise and exalt His Most Beloved Prophet Muhammad , the Prophet of Islam.

However open Haqeeqatul Wahi in volume 22 of Roohani Khazain and from pages 77 to 111 you will find a shameless plagiarization of the Quranic Text. These according to Mirza Ghulam, are samples of his revelations/inspirations. Readers who have read Holy Quran will immediately recognize the extent of wholesale plagiarization by the founder of Ahmadiyya Movement. Among them, are those exclusive verses mentioned above, revealed by Allah to glorify Holy Prophet Muhammad  but Mirza had the audacity to claims that God is now revealing these verses again to praise him!

Other examples:

Abrogation of Jehad

Abrogation of Jehad is another example how Mirza Ghulam Ahmad has openly blatantly cancelled a large number of verses of Holy Quran whereby Muslims are ordered to fight the enemies of Islam if they fight them. Following are some of his quotations on this topic: Does one need any more proof of alteration in Holy Quran? Don't worry, I have plenty more.
May Allah show the misguided followers of Mirza Ghulam, his real face and bring them back to the fold of Islam. Ameen.

Wassalam on those who follow the hidayah,

Dr. Syed Rashid Ali
