Detailed reply to Qadiani allegations
against Lahore Ahmadiyya elders
The Qadianis have placed some material on their Website (www.alislam.org)
alleging that, before the Split in 1914, the Lahore Ahmadiyya elders,
particularly Maulana Muhammad Ali, made statements saying that Hazrat
Mirza Ghulam Ahmad is a prophet. This is a complete misrepresentation.
Maulana Muhammad Ali answered all these allegations about him several
times during his life, from the Split in 1914 to nearly the end of his
Read our reply.
We also refer our readers below to some general material which refutes
the Qadiani allegations.
Please read our article: Qadianis flee Maulana
Muhammad Ali's challenges to debate where we quote the Maulana's
repeatedly published statements that:
"(1) Mirza Mahmud Ahmad has made a
false statement and committed a fabrication against the Promised Messiah
that in 1901 he changed his claim in this way that, while previously
denying a claim to prophethood, he now made a claim to prophethood himself,
and cancelled his former writings of several years containing denials
of a claim to prophethood."
We also quote Maulana Muhammad Ali's sworn
declaration made in response to a challenge from a Qadiani:
"I, Muhammad Ali, head of
the Lahore Ahmadiyya Jamaat, do swear that my belief is that Hazrat
Mirza [Ghulam Ahmad] sahib of Qadian is a Mujaddid and the
Promised Messiah, but not a prophet, nor can any person become a kafir
or excluded from the fold of Islam by denying him. This was also the
belief of Hazrat Mirza sahib. O God, if I have uttered falsehood in
this oath taken in Thy name, then send upon me from Thyself such exemplary
punishment as has no human hand in it, and from which the world would
learn how stern and terrible is God's retribution for one who deceives
His creatures by swearing falsely in His name."
We have also quoted extensive statements from Qadiani
leaders, made before the Split in 1914, in which they declared
that no prophet could come after the Holy Prophet
Muhammad, that only auliya or saints could come after him, and
that Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad was Mujaddid of the 14th Century
hijra. We have also displayed scanned images of their
full Urdu writings from the original publications.
- Mirza Mahmud Ahmad at one time believed that
no prophet can come after Prophet Muhammad.
- Father-in-law of Mirza Mahmud Ahmad declared
Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad to be Mujaddid of 14th Century (two
days before Hazrat Mirza's death).
- Mufti Muhammad Sadiq, a top-most Qadiani, says:
We don't preach Hazrat Mirza's prophethood.
