Anti Ahmadiyya Movement in Islam
12th October 1999

Bismillah Al-Rehman Al-Raheem
Praise be to Allah only. His Love and Peace be upon Him after whom there is no prophet



For ages Qadianis would have us (Muslims) believe that their so-called prophet and founder of Ahmadiyya Movement, Mirza Ghulam A. Qadiani, was Fana fi ar-Rasool, annihilated in the love and passion (Ishq) of Holy Prophet Muhammad, that he was Aashiq-e-Rasool (Passionate lover). By this they want us to ignore his heretical views and frankly blasphemous writings about Prophet of Islam, such as his writings where he claims that he is the re-incarnation of Holy Prophet etc. Mr. Riyaz Ahmad Arshad, a Qadiani from Kotli Afghana, Distt & Tehsil Mandi Bahauddin, wrote recently:

"My leader (Mirza) was also annihilated in the Ishq (love) of Rasoolullah SAAW. These same sentiments are thus expressed in his urdu poetry:
Us nur pay fida hoon, us kaa hee main hoowa hoon
Woh hay, main cheese kya hoon, bus faisla yehi hay

And when he expresses his ishq in persian this is what he says:

hust jam-e-ishq-e-oo Aab-e-Hayat la zawaal
her keh nausheedust oo hurgiz na meerud bad azeen
And still his emotions are full of passionate love for Holy Prophet, he expressed his ishq in Arabic:
Ya Aina Faiz Allah wal irfan
Yas'aa ilaika alkhalq...
Then God also says from his throne:
Pak Muhammad Mustafa Nabeeyon ka Sardar
Bhaij durood too us mohsin per din mein saw saw baar .................................... ."
(Letter by Riyaz Ahmad Arshad Qadiani postmarked 5th August 1995)
Similarly Mirza Ghulam A. Qadiani claimed in his other poetries:
After the love of God I am intoxicated with the love of Muhammad.
If this be heresy, by God I am the greatest of heretics!

All my veins and fibers are saturated with the love of Muhammad.
By itself my heart is empty, except that it treasures the grief of my Beloved (Muhammad).

You have illuminated my life with love!
May my soul be a sacrifice to you, O soul of Muhammad!

This, my fire, is the fire of the love of Muhammad,
And this water is the sweet and clear water of (the fountain of) Muhammad.

Our leader is he from whom flows all this light (of spiritual life).
His name is Muhammad and he is my only beloved.

For thy love (O Muhammad) I have annihilated myself.
For thy sake I have thrown to the winds everything I had.

My soul is eternally attuned to the soul of Muhammad.
I have drunk the cup of his love to the full.

Godís glory can be seen in the excellence of thy character.
By coming into contact with thee (O Muhammad) I eventually came into contact with the Divine Being.

Thy love has taken possession of every particle of my existence.
See, this is the great city of love which I have built up in my heart.

We are averse to polytheism and innovations.
We consider ourselves the dust of the path of Ahmad, the Chosen.

Thou art the one whose love hast taken deep root in my heart;
Thou art the one who art like soul to my body.

(Poetry by Mirza Ghulam taken from various books - Dur-e-Sameen etc.

Impressive indeed! These are some examples of the urdu, arabic and persian poetry written by Mirza Ghulam and which had confused generations of Qadianis into believing that he was a true lover and obedient servant of Holy Prophet Muhammad who followed him to perfection and therefore justified in his claims to prophethood, second advent of Holy Prophet and became His zill and burooz.
"I have written repeatedly that in reality our Master and Lord Holy Prophet is Khatam ul Anbiya and after Him there is neither permanent prophethood nor Shariat and if anyone claims such a thing then no doubt he is a non-believer and accursed. BUT God had intended from the beginning that to express and prove the various virtues, because of his emulation and following, someone would be bestowed upon the abundance of dialogues and addresses of God, which would create in his person a mirror image of prophethood; thus this is how God has named me PROPHET." (Roohani Khazian vol. 23 p.340)

"But I say that after Holy Prophet Muhammad who was really Khatam-un-Nabiyeen, to be addressed as Prophet and Messenger is not at all objectionable neither is the seal pf finality is broken because I have repeatedly said that according to the verse 'wa aakhareen minhum lumma yalhaqoo behim', as a prototype, I am the same Prophet Khatam-ul-Anbiya, and 20 years ago in Braheen Ahmadiyya God had named me Muhammad and Ahmad and labeled me the person of Holy Prophet. Thus Holy Prophet  being the Khatam-ul-Anbiya did not shake my prophethood ...... as a burooz (prototype) I am Holy Prophet and as a burooz, all the virtues and excellence of Muhammad including prophethood of Muhammad is reflected in my shadowy mirror, thus. who is the separate person that has separately claimed prophethood?" (Roohani Khazain vol. 18 p.212)

"This is my faith that in 13 hundred years, from Rasoolullah till today, no such person passed in Ummah of Muhammad who was such a devotee of Holy Prophet and an obedient and such a follower as Promised Messiah (Mirza Ghulam)." (Haqeeqat-e-Nabuwwat p.5 by Mirza Mahmud, the 2nd Khalifa)

Mirza Basheer Ahmad s/o Mirza Ghulam writes::
"Thus only one person got the status of Prophethood in the Ummah of Muhammad....except for the Promised Messiah (mirza) no one followed Holy Prophet to such perfection to be called the Shadow of Holy Prophet. Therefore only Promised Messiah was chosen to be called the Prophet." (Kalimat Al-Fasl, Review of Religions, Qadian, p.116, No.3, vol. 14)

Now the readers would realise how this belief of the myth of Mirza Ghulam love of prophet degenerated into accepting all the other heretical claims. In response to such claims of the founder of Ahmadiyya Movement, Syed Abdul Hafeez Shah had written following response to Mr. Riyaz Ahmad Arshad. This deals with issues related to Ishq-e-Rasool and Fana fil Rasool.

Dear Mr. Riyaz Ahmad Arshad
Wa alaikum assalam
Thank you for your letter. Your attachment to the Holy Prophet and in that regards your good faith in me has given me hope that if you ponder on this Hadith {You are not faithful unless you love me more than your father, your son and the whole mankind. (Bukhari)} inshaAllah one day you will arrive at the truth.

Following is some of the poetry written in praise of Holy Prophet Muhammad expressing poet's intense love and passion for him. Just see how poets have beautifully expressed their thoughts with charming words containing deep meanings.

I am sure you will agree that these poets have elegantly expressed their passionate love (ishq) for the Holy Prophet of Islam, much more beautifully than your Mirza Ghulam A. Qadiani ever did. Question is: What does this expression of love signifies? You would be surprised to hear that these poets were non Muslims and died as such. their beautiful poetry could not guide them to Islam. Among them were Munshi Durgasahaye, Suroor Jahanabadi, Rana Bhagwandas, Jagan Nath Azad, Kabeer Das etc.

You have cleverly avoided answering my questions (regarding the heretical writings of Mirza Sahib) and tried to prove that Mirza Sahib was Aashiq-e-Rasool and Fana fir Rasool, and in the end by saying "the biggest proof is the Ishq and Love" you have tried to justify his claims to prophethood and messiahship. Leaving aside what does Mirza Sahib say about the criteria to judge his truthfulness and falsehood, let us talk about your own criterion of mirza Sahib's truthfulness.

What is Ishq and Aashiqee?

To understand this, you must understand certain basic things.

Acquaintance and unfamiliarity are two opposite things. When one hears of someone in the beginning, then this unfamiliarity changes into a familiarity. As one keeps hearing the goodness of this person, one develops an attachment, which progresses to affection and this is the beginning of love. When this love increases, the lover starts feeling as if he is getting consumed by this love. Gradually and insidiously SHAWQ (intense desire) for the beloved is generated in the heart of lover. This desire is in fact a gift of beloved, it is not something which one can achieve by his efforts. Time comes when this love is established in the heart of lover and this shawq nourishes this seedling of love. As much the beloved is hidden, the shawq increases and is gradually transformed into fire of passionate love otherwise known as ISHQ.

This station of Ishq is reserved for only those pious souls who are close to Allah. The heat of ishq keeps them constantly restless. The bounties of Allah and His blessings gradually intoxicates them and time comes when they loose their self-control, they pass beyond the world of senses. Their ishq progresses to JUNOON (lunacy), the fire of ishq burn them to the core. Now they are of no use, neither for themselves nor for others, neither for this world nor for hereafter. They reach a stage where they are bound by no laws, neither the laws of Shariah nor the worldly laws. Such selected souls are beyond the stage where they can teach anyone anything.

This is the ultimate station on the way of sulook and is called Fana fi Allah (Annihilated in Allah). To reach this stage one has to pass through the stages of fana fi as-Shaikh and fana fi Rasool. These two stages are just a temporary phases in the trainning of saalik. Master or murshid initially generates his love in the heart of his mureed (disciple) and as soon as mureed reaches the stage of fana fis Shaikh, Shaikh sends him towards Holy Prophet, so that he may progress to the next stage. If Shaikh doesn't do that and leaves him at the stage of Fana fil Shaikh, then mureed becomes an idolater and kaafir.

In any case the stations of Fana fir Rasool and Fana fil Allah are absolutely an act of Graciousness of Prophet Muhammadand a gift which He bestows upon His servant. Every saalik (seeker) keeps walking on the path towards this zenith of perfection but not everyone reaches this peak. Ghaus, Qutub and Abdaal reach the peak and become witness of Holy Prophet Muhammad; they progress from sure knowledge ('Ilm-ul-Yaqeen) through visual confirmation ('Ain-ul-yaqeen) to the station of sure and evident truth (Haqq-ul-yaqeen). Such specially chosen people after their 'Odyssey towards Allah' (Sair ila Allah) and 'Odyssey in Allah' (Sair fil Allah) reaches a stage from where no news is heard of them.

But those pioous souls who are chosen by Allah for the betterment of his creatures, they are returned back from this Sair filAllah so that they can remain within their senses, bounded by the Shariat of Holy Prophet Muhammad, to guide the humanity.

Can a Prophet also be a Saalik?

Here it is important to keep this point in mind that all these stations on the path towards Allah (Sulook) are for saalik (seeker on the path) and a Prophet or a Messenger of Allah is Siraj-us-Salikeen (Light for the Seekers on the path) and not a saalik. There is neither a need for the Prophet and Messenger to go through the phase of Fana Fis Shaikh nor any Prophet has ever annihilated in the love of another Prophet (Fana fir Rasool). There are examples of two Prophets being present at the same time, one being superior than other, as evident from Quran but there is not a single instance of a subordinate Prophet being annihilated in the love of other Prophet. eg. Syedna Abraham AS and his nephew Syedna Lut AS, Syedna Eisa ibne Maryam AS and Syedna Yahya AS, Syedna Musa AS and Syedna Haroon AS, Syedna Yaqoob AS and Syedna Yusuf AS and so on.

Similarly there is no need for a Prophet to go through the phase of Fana fi Allah. The gnosis of Prophets of Allah is totally different from the gnosis achieved by Auliya Allah (friends of Allah). The odyssey of Rasoolullah was entirely different from the Sair ila Allah of Auliya Allah. His was with his body and soul and that of Allah's friends was with soul only. Consequently the best possible station of Auliya Allah is inferior to the lowest grade of Prophets, because this status is not achievable, it is bestowed by Allah. Allah chose and appointed His Prophets on the day of Azal (beginning of creations). Not only that, He even took pledge from all the Prophets to be subservient to the Holy Prophet Muhammad as mentioned in Quran:

When Allah made (His) covenant with the Prophets, (He said): Behold that which I have given you of the Scripture and knowledge. And afterward there will come unto you a messenger, confirming that which ye possess. Ye shall believe in him and ye shall help him. He said: Do ye agree, and will ye take up My burden (which I lay upon you) in this (matter)? They answered: We agree. He said: Then bear ye witness. I will be a witness with you. (Quran 3.81)
Holy Prophet said: I was a Prophet even when Adam was between water and clay. It is this Glorious and Magnificent Prophet whose pious heart was given so much endurance by Allah that it absorbed the mountain-crushing impact of the Sound of Allah - 'Quran' which no one else could bear. Allah thus says in Quran:
Say: "I am but a man like yourselves (but) the inspiration has come to me that your Allah is one Allah... (Quran 18.110)
And this has made a world of difference between the Holy Prophet Muhammad and an ordinary human being.

But Alas! there are people like Mirza Ghulam A. Qadiani who had always striven to denigrate the status of Holy Prophet. Just look at this example:

"He who differentiates between me and Mustafa,
has neither known me nor seen me."
(Roohani Khazain vol.16 p.259)

What an audacity! Where a Magnificent personage like Holy Prophet and where a person like Mirza Ghulam A. Qadiani who could not even recite a small chapter in prayers without getting a hysterical attack.!!

Similarly Mirza Sahib alleges that archangel Gabriel has never came on earth! How right he is. Gabriel was the angel who used to bring revelations to the Prophets of Allah. Since Mirza Sahib never really received WAHI or revelation, so for once he was quite right that Gabriel never on earth for him.

Question comes to mind: who was the angel that was bringing WAHI to Mirza Sahib and what was the real nature of such revelation? Eel, Teechee Teechee, Durshani, Khairaatee were the names of some of these angels!!

Read Braheen-e-Ahmadiyya carefully. Mirza repeatedly quotes the verses from Quran as his inspirations in this book. Later in his other books he refers to these writings, saying: "And as God mentions in Braheen-e-Ahmadiyya...." as if Braheen-e-Ahmadiyya is the book of God. (Ma'azAllah). People talk about alteration in the verses of Quran, here Mirza Sahib has pilfered most of the Quran.

Slandering the Holy Prophet

Mr. Riyaz! You talk of love and ishq of Rasoolullah, what kind of graceless, shameless and degenerate lover was Mirza that ALL those verses of Quran that Allah revealed in honour of his beloved (Rasoolullah), he started applying on himself. Pick up Haqeeqat-ul-Wahi and from pages 73-111 & 705-715 Mirza Sahib has mentioned his Wahi. you will notice wholesale plagiarization of the verses of Quran. Among them are those verses which were revealed to Glorify Holy Prophet but which now according to Mirza Sahib have been revealed again to glorify Mirza!!
I am sure anyone would recognise the verses glorifying the Holy Prophet of Islam. But Mirza Sahib has shamelessly claimed that they have been revealed again glorifying him.
Another example of the slanderous attack on Holy Prophet:
"The basis for our claims is not Hadith but Quran and that Wahi which comes to me. Yes, in support we also present those Hadith which are according to Quran and DO NOT CONTRADICT MY WAHI.  I THROW AWAY REST OF THE HADITH LIKE A WASTE PAPER." (Roohani Khazain vol.19 p.140)
Mirza Sahib also had this sickness that he considered himself either equal to or better than other Prophets. Consequently in trying prove himself better than Holy Prophet Muhammad he initially hijacked the glorifying verses. But when he was not satisfied with this, he started writing poetry proving himself superior to Rasoolullah. For example:

"For him (Rasoolullah) only the sign of Lunar Eclipse appeared
And for me both Lunar and Solar eclipse. Now will you reject me?"
(Roohani Khazain vol.19 p.183)
You will notice that not only he has tried to prove himself superior to Holy Prophet but also denied the miracle of splitting of the Moon and labeled it as eclipse!
In another book, Khutba-e-Ilhamiyah, he labeled the Islam of Holy Prophet Muhammad as Hilal, the new moon but his own Islam as Badr, the full moon. (Roohani Khazain vol.16. p.184)
Following poetry was recited in front of Mirza by his follower. Mirza Sahib is reported to have said JazakAllah and after having written the following quartet in beautiful calligraphy, had is hung in his house:

"Muhammad has descended again amongst us
An is greater in his glory than before
He who wants to see Muhammad in perfection
Should look at Ghulam Ahmad in Qadian."
(Poetry by Qazi Zahoor Ahmad Akmal Qadiani, printed in
AlBadr Qadian dated 25th October 1906
and Paigham-e-Sulh Qadian dated 14th March 1916)

Mirza Further degrades Holy Prophet Muhammad - Ijthaadi Mistake:

When Mirza Sahib kept commiting mistakes after mistakes and his prophecies kept turning out to be false one after the other, then he commited that blunder which sealed his fate forever as KAAFIR. He started accusing other Prophets of Allah and especially Holy Prophet Muhammad of making similar mistakes. This was the height of his slanderous attacks. He wrote about Holy Prophet that:
Holy Prophet's revelation also turned out to be false. (Roohani Khazain vol.3 p.472)
Holy Prophet  did not understand the correct meaning of Surah alZilzal. (Roohani Khazain vol.3 p.472)
Holy Prophet has also commited mistakes in understanding revelations. (Several examples eg. Roohani Khazian vol2 p.224)


The Grave of Holy Prophet Muhammad is a source of blessing and light and has been revered by generations after generations sinc the time of Sahaba till this day. No Muslim has ever dared to violate the sanctity of this Holiest of the Holy Shrines. But this so-called Aashiq-e-Rasool and Fana fir Rasool did not even spare that. May Allah forgive me for quoting such profanity:
"And God chose such an ignominious place to hide/bury the Holy Prophet that is awfully stinking and dark and cramped and the place of excreta of insects..." (Roohani Khazain vol.17 p.205)
MA'AZALLAH summa MA'AZALLAH. Is this what you call Love of Rasoolullah?


Although you have labeled Love and Ishq as the proof of Mirza Sahib's truthfulness, which again I have shown above to be a false propaganda, I beg to disagree that this is not the proof of his claims to Prophethood since it is your word against your prophet's and I am sure you would agree that it is his words that count. Thus he said:
"To judge our truthfulness and lies there can be no better criteria than our PROPHECIES." (Aina-e-Kamalaat-e-Islam, Roohani Khazain vol.5, p.288)
Similarly at another place he said:
"He who is a LIAR in his claim, his prophecy is never fulfilled." (Roohani Khazain vol.5 p.223)
"If it is proven that out of hundred prophecies even if one turns out to be false, I will admit that I am a liar." (Roohani Khazain vol.17 p.421, footnote)
"If Atham did not recieve punishment with death (as prophecied) within the stipulated time, then I am prepared to accept any punishment, humiliate me, paint my face black, put a rope around my neck and hang me. I am prepared for everything and I swear by God AlMighty that he will definitely do as I said, definitely do it, definitely do it. Earth and Heavens can move but His words will not fail." (Roohani Khazain vol.6 p.293)
After such boastful claims, now let me ask you the fate of some of the famous prophecies of Mirza Sahib which he had boasted specifically to be a sign of his truthfulness.

Melancholia, other Illnesses, drugs and alcohol

Question is then what is the meaning of these inspirations, these prophecies and then these slanderous behaviours? If you study the life of Mirza Sahib with an open mind, all the facts will become clear as a daylight. Mirza Saheb belonged to a family who were loyal servants of British Rulers of India. He was of a weak mind from early days of his life and his father used to discourage him from indulging too much in reading books lest he would loose his mind. When he reached maturity, he absconded with the pension of his father and spent it in immoral pursuits. Later he took up a menial job in City Court in Sialkot at Rs. 15 per month. There he learnt some English but failed the Mukhtaari exam. In 1868 while he was still working as a clerk in the court, he met a Christian Padre who was later instrumental in his selection to the post of 'Apostolic Prophet'.

When Mirza Saheb was about 38 years old his father died and Inspirations and revelations started showering on him like rain. Were these really inspirations or an indication of mental illness? He sustained the first attack of hysteria when his son, Basheer I, dies. When he undertook second marriage, he was IMPOTENT. Then upon divine inspiration he prepared a potion, 'DIVINE CURE', its main constituent was OPIUM. During his correspondence with Hakeem Nuruddin, he admitted to be suffering from following sicknesses. Here you must remember that Mirza was taught medicine by his father. :

And on top of all these sicknesses, use of OPIUM and ALCOHOL!!
In other words MENTAL SICKNESS + OPIUM = HALLUCINATIONS which he misinterpreted as INSPIRATIONS.
Perhaps you might think that previous Messengers were also accused of being mental case by their opponents, so it is no big deal if we also call Mirza Saheb the same.  BUT let me clear the confusion. NO PROPHET of Allah has ever labelled himself as a mental case, a lunatic. Mirza Ghulam Ahmad is the only claimant of prophethood who had admitted in his writings being mentally sick.

It was the sequel of his Mental Sickness + Opium that when Britihsers decided to create an Imposter 'Apostolic' Prophet to eliminate the spirit of Jehad from the hearts of Muslims, they searched for a proper person. Finally they chose the mentally defected son, an opium/alcohol user and pusher, of their ancestral servant, Mirza Ghulam Murtaza, who had proven his loyalty by supplying 50 armed horsemen to fight against the Muslims in the freedom struggle of 1857.

Mirza Ghulam Qadiani Saheb admitted to this appointment in his letter to the then Governor General of Punjab by saying that he is the 'SELF CULTIVATED SEEDLING' of British Raj and had rendered such services which had never been performed by any other Muslim. He wrote a lenghthy letter to Queen Victoria entitled 'GIFT TO THE EMPRESS' in which he reminded her of his services in the following words:

"For the sake of British Government, I have published and distributed 50,000 leaflets (against Jehad) in this country and other Islamic countries .... the result is that hundreds of thousands of people have given up their filthy ideas about Jehad." (Roohani Khazain vol.15 p.114)
And this was the mental sickness that was aggravated by Opium and Alcohol that Mirza Saheb kept claiming one thing after another. He started his campaign as a Servant of Islam and a Debator, then progressed to Mujaddid (Rejuvenator), Maseel Maseeh (Resemblance with Messiah), Promised Messiah and even adopted the titles of PROPHET and MESSENGER. Then his sickness forced him to usurped the names of ALL PROPHETS. He became Adam, Seth, Noah, Abraham, Isaac, Ishmael, Moses, David, Solomon, Mariam, Eisa ibne Maryam (upon them be peace) and finally started calling himself the second advent of Holy Prophet Muhammad. Now whoever opposed him and did not accept his prophethood was labelled as Bastard and children of prostitute. (Roohani Khazain vol.5 p.547)

Despite all these claims, he did not get him any respite from his Mental Illness. Now he started having visions that he is the wife of God and God has expressed His power of virility with him. (Astaghfir Allah). Finally he got inspirations that he is son of God, God himself and God will be born as his son. (Roohani Khazain vol.13 p.103)

If you honestly think, all these jugglary was the result of Mirza Saheb's mental sickness which was affecting his hearing and vision resulting in auditory and visual hallucinations respectively. Well, Mirza Saheb was a sick man, I am surprised at educated and wise people like you who despite knowing everything are totally ignorant. Mirza Saheb had really cornered all Qadianis by stating that he who has not read all his books at least three times, his faith is in doubt. (Seerat-ul-Mahdi vol.2 p.78)

I can say without any shadow of doubt that no present day Qadiani has read all his books three times. If he had, it would have been enough to open his eyes.

IN CONCLUSION, I have exposed the myth of ISHQ-e-RASOOL in which you are trapped. For God's sake think with an open mind. Firstly NO PROPHET HAD EVER BEEN A LOVER OF ANOTHER PROPHET. Secondly DOES ONE EVER SLANDERS HIS BELOVED? One looks for the virtues of his beloved and not mistakes.

The yardstick to jusdge the prophethood is neither love/ishq nor prophecies. It is the message brought by the prophet that proves his truth. Please clear this misunderstanding in your heart and then read Mirza Saheb's books with an open mind.  I pray to Allah that may He give you the insight to differentiate between truth and falsehood and then guide you to the right path. Ameen.

Among so many you are the first Qadiani who had written such clear letters with so much affection. I do not want you to back off and stop writing to me. I would be grateful if you would correct any wrong thing mentioned in my letter,  and accept what is the truth.

Allah is the one who gives guidance
