The qadianis are not familiar to many Muslims; they are followers of a false prophet, Mirza Ghulam, who worked with the British Raj to undermine Islam in the Indian subcontinent during the late 19th & early 20th centuries. They pretend to be Muslims but the qadiani leader repeatedly declared all followers of Muhammad (S.A.W.) to be kaffirs. The qadiani status has been clearly defined as non-Muslim by both worldwide consensus of the scholars and by Pakistan.
Hoping to benefit from the rise of Musharraf and the suspension of the Pakistani Constitution under Musharraf's PCO (Provisional Constitution Order) which has cancelled the Islamic nature of Pakistan, the qadianis have made another bid for acceptance as Muslims.
Alhamdulillah, they failed.
We include an article detailing some of the religions that are not part of Islam. For a thorough treatment of the qadianis and the Islamic view of the finality of the prophethood of Muhammad (S.A.W.), visit the article by Maulana Maududi at:

Government says Qadianis are not Muslims
ISLAMABAD, Feb 24: Persons belonging to Qadiani group or the Lahori group (who call themselves Ahmadi) continue to be non-Muslims, a spokesman of the ministry of law said here on Thursday.
He said the relevant Islamic provisions including provisions of clause (3) of Article 260 of the Constitution, are not in conflict with the order of Oct 14, 1999 and the Provisional Constitution Order No 1 of 1999.
These provisions and those of clause (3) of Article 260 of the Constitution continue to be in force.
The spokesman dispelled the impression created
by certain quarters that on coming into force of the proclamation of emergency
of the Oct 14, 1999,
whereby the Constitution, has been held in abeyance and as consequence thereof unjustified doubts have arisen regarding the enforcement of Islamic provisions in the Constitution and the provisions relating to Qadianis as contained in Clause (3) of Article 260.
The spokesman clarified that Article-2 of the Provisional Constitution Order No 1 of 1999, provides that notwithstanding the abeyance of the provisions of the Constitution Pakistan shall be governed as nearly as may be in accordance with the Constitution.
The clarification says: "The relevant Islamic provisions including provisions of clause (3) of Article 260 of the Constitution are not in conflict with the Oct 14, 1999 and the Provisional Constitution Order No 1 of 1999.
These provisions and those of clause (3) of Article
260 of the Constitution continue to be in force and the position of persons
belonging to Qadiani group or the Lahori group (who call themselves Ahmadi)
as non-Muslims remains unaltered and persons belonging to these groups
continue to be non-Muslims.-APP

The Qur'an and Sunnah are the only two sources for the essential beliefs of those people who call themselves Muslims.
What are those beliefs? The most important one is that there is no deity other than Allah. This is the first half of the attestation of every Muslim, the second half being that Muhammad is Allah's Prophet. There are a few other fundamental principles that a Muslim is required to accept, but further information is available elsewhere on this site. There is also information available on common misconceptions held by Muslims and non-Muslims.
This page is dedicated to those who insist on misusing the names of "Islam" and "Muslim" either intentionally or in ignorance. In this page, we try to briefly show how many "religious" groups around the world who use the name of Islam are in fact clearly and absolutely in violation of certain basic principles contained in the Qur'an and Sunnah.
The following groups are currently addressed:
...one God (Allah) and that Allah (God) appeared
in the Person of Master W.Fard Muhammad, July, 1930; the long awaited 'Messiah'
of the Christians
and the 'Mahdi' of the Muslims... However, the Qur`an states in chapter 4, verse 36, "Serve Allah, and join not Any partners with Him; ... ". And according to a hadith narrated by Masruq, in Sahih Bukhari, 'Aisha said, "If anyone tells you that Muhammad has seen his Lord, he is a liar, for Allah says (in 6:103), 'No vision can grasp Him.'...".
The followers of the Nation Of Islam further believe "in the resurrection of the dead--not in physical resurrection--but in mental resurrection. We also believe that the so-called Negroes are most in need of mental resurrection; therefore, they will be resurrected first." But the Qur`an states in chapter 20, verse 55, "From the earth did We Create you, and into it Shall We return you, and from it shall We bring you out once again." Even more pointedly, the Qur'an also states in 64:7,
The Unbelievers think that they will not be raised up (for Judgement). Say: "Yea, by my Lord, Ye shall surely be Raised up: then shall ye Be told (the truth) of All that ye did. And that is easy for Allah." Besides the above two differences, the followers of the Nation of Islam also believe in other things contrary to Islam as defined in the Qur'an and Sunnah, such as:
[We, the Black Muslims, believe] "in the truth of the Bible, but we believe that it has been tampered with and must be reinterpreted so that mankind will not be snared by the falsehoods that have been added to it".
The problem with this belief: The true Prophet
of Islam ordered Muslims to neither accept the Bible nor reject it - certainly
there was no mention of
"That we who declare ourselves to be righteous Muslims, should not participate in wars which take the lives of humans. We do not believe this nation should force us to take part in such wars, for we have nothing to gain from it unless America agrees to give us the necessary territory wherein we may have something to fight for".The problem with this belief: The Qur'an and Sunnah are crystal clear on the necessity of going to war when the situation demands it.
The Nation of Gods and Earths (5% Nation of Islam)
The Nation of Gods and Earths (5% Nation of Islam) is apparently an offshoot of the so-called Nation of Islam. Like its parent, this group's beliefs clearly identify it as being fundamentally outside the pale of Islam. Specifically, and we quote (from their homepage):
The second quote above is a prime example of a
tendency of the "Nation of Gods and Earths" to conjure up beliefs that
are, to a large extent, highly
confused. Some examples of these beliefs that have nothing to do with Islam are "supreme mathematics and alphabet", an evil person named Yacob,
a prophet named W. D. Fard, and a belief that black people are superior in some way.
The true Prophet of Islam refuted this last racist belief in his Farewell Address:
"O people! Verily your Lord is one and your father is one. All of you belong to one ancestry of Adam and Adam was created out of clay. There is no superiority for an Arab over a non-Arab and for a non-Arab over an Arab; nor for white over the black nor for the black over the white except in piety. Verily the noblest among you is he who is the most pious."For a deeper expose of this group and its parent (the Nation of Islam), the interested reader might wish to examine the autobiography of the late Malik Al-Shabaz (Malcolm X).
The Ahmadiyya/Qadiani Movement
The Ahmadiyya Movement, which originated in the
Indian subcontinent under the patronage of the British colonialists, espouses
beliefs which leave no
doubt as to their apostacy from Islam. Among their erroneous beliefs is their denial of the finality of Prophethood of Muhammad (peace and blessings of Allah on him), an article of faith endorsed by the Qur'an and Hadith reports as well as the consensus of the Companions and scholars.
The Qur'an states (translation):
"O people! Muhammad has no sons among ye men, but verily, he is the Messenger of Allah and the last in the line of Prophets. And Allah is aware of everything." (33:40)The true Prophet of Islam, Muhammad, observed:
"The tribe of Israel was guided by prophets. When a prophet passed away, another succeeded him. But no prophet will come after me; only caliphs will succeed me." (Sahih Bukhari)The Ahmadiyyas are followers of a certain Mirza Ghulam Ahmad of Qadian who lay claim to prophethood and used fabricated Hadith reports and twisted
"The Hour will not come ... until nearly thirty "dajjals" (liars) appear, each one claiming to be a messenger from Allah." (Sahih Bukhari, Sahih Muslim)Shortly after the death of Prophet Muhammad, a man named Musailama, a claimant to prophethood, was fought against together with his followersfor their apostacy. It is worth noting that Musailama did not deny the prophethood of Muhammad (peace and blessings on him) and nor did his followers. It is also worth noting that it was misinformation that led the tribe of Banu Hunaifa to accept Musailama's false claims. Nevertheless, the consensus of the companions was to declare them apostates and wage a war against them. This is evidence enough to declare the Ahmadiyyas as non-Muslims. For a more thorough treatment of this subject consult this article:
http://www.usc.edu/dept/MSA/fundamentals/prophet/finalprophet.htmlAnother example of the Ahmadiyya's rejection of the Qur'an and Sunnah is their contention that Jesus died, and that Mirza Ghulam Ahmad was an
The International Community of Submitters
The Submitters are followers of the late Rashad Khalifa, a man who claimed to be a Messenger of Allah. This claim in itself is sufficient to remove the Submitters from Islam as the Qur'an states (translation):
"O people! Muhammad has no sons among ye men, but verily, he is the Messenger of Allah and the last in the line of Prophets. And Allah is aware of everything." (33:40)The true Prophet of Islam, Muhammad SAAW, observed:
"The tribe of Israel was guided by prophets. When a prophet passed away, another succeeded him. But no prophet will come after me; only caliphs will succeed me." (Sahih Bukhari)Much of Rashad Khalifa's misguidance can be traced to his obsession with numerology, an obsession which has misguided many different people throughout history. Khalifa alleged that the Qur'an contained a mathematical code which revolved around the number 19. He went to the extent of removing two verses from the Qur'an because according to him "the word `God' ... is not a multiple of 19, unless we remove [it]", and the "sum of all verse numbers where the word `God' occurs is ... 19x6217 ... If the false verse 9:129 is included, this phenomenon disappears." By rejecting a single verse of the Qur'an, the Submitters bring themselves under the judgement of another verse,
... Do you believe in part of the Book and disbelieve in another part? And what is the reward of those who do so save ignominy in the life of the world, and on the Day of Resurrection they will be consigned to the most grievous doom ... (2:85)It is interesting to note that Khalifa was a numerologist who did his blighted profession justice: he predicted the end of the world. However, Allah says in the Qur'an:
They ask you about the (last) hour, when will be its taking place? Say: The knowledge of it is only with my Lord; none but He shall manifest it at its time; it will be momentous in the heavens and the earth; it will not come on you but of a sudden. They ask you as if you were solicitous about it. Say: Its knowledge is only with Allah, but most people do not know. (7:187)The Submitters also reject the Sunnah of Prophet Muhammad (saws)- not part of it, but the whole of it. For the Submitters, the Sunnah is not a source
Salaat (obligatory prayers), the second pillar of IslamWith four out of the five pillars of Islam removed, the Submitters have little to back their claim to being "Muslim".
Zakat (obligatory tax), the third pillar of Islam
Sawm (fasting), the fourth pillar of Islam
Hajj (pilgrimage), the fifth pillar of Islam
The true Messenger of Islam (saws) warned Muslims of falling into this trap, Narrated AbuRafi':
The Prophet (peace be upon him) said: "Let me not find one of you reclining on his couch when he hears something regarding me which I have commanded or forbidden [i.e. from the Sunnah -ed.] and saying: 'We do not know. What we found in Allah's Book [i.e. the Qur'an] we have followed.'" Book 40, Number 4588 of Sunan Abu-Dawud_____________________________________________________________________
