Ahmadiyya in Indonesia

by Dr. Syed Rashid Ali

Dear Brothers/Sisters in Islam

Assalamo alaikum. In the following section I am forwarding some of the correspondence that I had recently with a brother from Indonesia, with his permission of course. It is very sad that in the present world of Global Islamic Revival, there are still areas where Muslims are getting trapped by Qadiani/Ahmadiyya Movement out of sheer ignorance. This is not just ignorance from Islam, rather it is their unawareness from the man himself, Mirza Ghulam Ahmad, and his decietful doctrine in the name of Islam. The problem is compounded due to delibrate efforts by the Ahmadiyya Movement to portray themselves as Sunni Muslim keeping Mirza Ghulam well into the background. Outside of Indo-Pak subcontinent, very few people are aware of Mirza Ghulam Ahmad Qadiani or Ahmadiyya Movement, its position in relation to Islam and the stand of Muslim Ummah/Scholars towards them. Ahmadiyya Movement takes advantage of this situation and under the garb of Sunni Muslims, they are actively engaged in trapping unsuspecting Muslims in remote areas. They use various tactics, one of which is highlighted in this case. It is hightime that Muslims should rise to this situation and fight this evil to the best of thier capabilities.

Assalamoalaikum wa Rehmatullah wa Barakatohu.
Dear Dr. Syed Rashid Ali,
I would like to know about your opinion if one of the male Moslem wants to marry an Ahmadiyya lady to be his wife.
We believe that the Holy Prophet Mohammed SAAW is the last prophet, and we would say
"AshHadu an la ilaha illa-Llah, wa ashhadu anna Muhammadan Rasoolu-Llah"
Now, the situation when my friend is going to proposed marry, the 4 days before wedding day, he must say that :
"AshHadu an la ilaha illa-Llah, wa ashhadu anna AHMAD GHULAM MIRZA Rasoolu-Llah"
I could not believe that and what we did, we said to our friend that he must cancelled that ceremony.
So, we would like to ask you several questions according to that situation above :
Thank you for your attention and We look forward to hear from you soon.

Dear br Rasheed,

Dear Br Yesaya

Wa alaikum assalam wa rehmatullah was barakatohu

Thankyou for enquiring a very important issue. The short answer to your questions are: Yes it is a sin to marry a qadiani/ahmadi girl. For such a girl, reciting the Kalima of Muslims is not enough, she must also say and believe that Mirza Ghulam Ahmad is not a prophet and is an apostate and Kafir.

First of all let me make it clear that usually Qadianis/Ahmadiyya is not openly asking anyone to recite such a Kalima where the name of Mirza Ghulam Ahmad is recited. If they have asked your friend to do it, and if it is in writing somewhere even if it is in Indonesian language, please post a copy of it to me at my address: PO BOx 11560, Dibba alFujairah, United Arab Emirates.

Now coming to the real issue. Qadianis/Ahmadiyya Movement and its founder Mirza Ghulam Ahmad and his followers are declared APOSTATE, KAFIR, DISBELIEVERS and OUT OF THE FOLD OF ISLAM by all Muslim scholars of all the Muslim countires.

What does Mirza Ghulam Ahmad think about Muslims:

Mirza Ghulam Ahmad declared:

Thus as far as Qadianis/ahmadis are concerned, we all muslims are KAAFIR, BASTARDS, NON-MUSLIM, HELLISH, OUT OF THE FOLD OF ISLAM, etc. etc.

What does Mirza Ghulam Ahmad claim:

He claims that he is a prophet and he is the second advent of Holy Prophet Muhammad SAAW. He claims that he is superior to Holy Prophet SAAW. He claimed that he is Eisa ibne Maryam etc. etc.

It should be remembered that Mirza Ghulam Ahmad had gradually evolved his claims, starting in the begining with being a servant of Islam, progressing through a stage of being a Rejuvenator (Mujaddid) of Islam, Maseel Maseeh (resembling Messiah) to Promised Messiah and finally reaching the stage when he started claiming full-fledged prophethood. During these evolutions he had been vehemently denying the progression to next stage of his evolution. For example, when he claimed that he was a Maseel Maseeh, Muslim scholars accused him that he is preparing the ground for laying the claim to Messiahship. He denied this vehemently:

However after sometime, in another place he said: When he was asked how he became Son of Mary, because Hadith of Holy Prophet SAAW categorically mentions the coming of Eisa ibne Maryam, he came up with this fantastic explanation: Similarly in the begining he expressed his beliefs on the Finality of Prophethood and considered any such person who claims to be prophet as out of the fold of Islam. However Muslim scholars understood the drift of his writings and accused him that he is paving the way for claiming prophethood. He thus annoounced: However he kept saying things which were clearly indicating his future intentions and preparing his followers mentally to accept his claim of prophethood. He kept giving mind boggling explanations (the examples of such writings have already been given by the Ahmadi who has posted the article) to make room for his prophethood. Finally when he thought that the time was ripe, he laid the claim.

Mirza Declares Islam a Dead/Accursed/Satanic Religion:

Mirza Ghulam Ahmad declared himself to be a prophet: Mirza Ghulam steals the title of Last Prophet: Mirza Ghulam claims to be Holy Prophet Muhammad SAAW: Mirza claims superiority over Holy Prophet Muhammad SAAW: MIRZA PLAGIARISED VERSES GLORIFYING SYEDNA MUHAMMAD (pbuh):

Open Haqeeqatul Wahi in volume 22 of Roohani Khazain and you will find that from pages 77 to 111 Mirza Ghulam has mentioned samples of his revelations/inspirations, mostly in Arabic. Reader who have read Holy Quran will immediately recognize the extent of whole sale plagiarization of Holy Quran by Mirza Ghulam. In between there are those verses which were revealed to glorify Holy Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) and some which were used for Hazrat Ibrahim (AS). Only Few examples will be mentioned here.

For example: Allah sends His Wahi to Holy Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) glorifying Him and His Companions in Holy Quran:

Mirza claims to have ALL the virtues of ALL Prophets: Mirza Praises Peotry:

Following stanza was selected for wall hanging by Mirza from a poetry written and recited by one of his follower in front and printed in his lifetime in his newspaper:

(Newspaper Paighamus Sulh, Lahore dated 14th March 1916)

Mirza Ghulam's relationship with God:

AND FINALLY............

The Basis for Mirza Ghulam's claims:

There are plenty of material but this should suffice. Now it is for anyone to decide the position of Mirza Ghulam Ahmad.

However the above claims of Mirza Ghulam Ahmad led to the believe that he is second advent of Holy Prophet Muhammad SAAW and therefore when qadianis/ahmadis recite the Muslim Kalima it include Mirza Ghulam Ahmad and when they recite Salaat and salaam on Holy Prophet Muhammad SAAW, Mirza Ghulam Ahmad is included in it.

Kalima in Ahmadiyyat:

Salaat and Salaam on Mirza Ghulam Ahmad: Question of Marriage with a qadiani/ahmadiyya girl:

Dear Brother! After all this, the position is clear for your friend to decide what should be done. Even when a Qadiani/Ahmadiyya girl testifies that La ilaha illa Allah Muhammadur Rasoolullah, you never know what is in her heart and as I have shown above that as long as they consider Mirza Ghulam Ahmad a replica of Holy Prophet Muhammad, they do not have to recite a seperate Kalima. It is not allowed to marry an Ahmadiyya girl unless she denounce Ahmadiyyat and Mirza Ghulam Ahmad. Usually these girls marry Muslim men and gradually take them away from Islam and make them Qadiani/Ahmadi. It is considered a sacred duty for them for which they will get reward in life hereafer.

I hope this 'long sermon' would not have bored you or your friend. Kindly keep me informed about further developments and do not hesitate to ask any further questions or information.


Yours truly in Islam
