Refuting the Qadiani beliefs

The term Qadiani is used in this discussion (without any offence intended) to refer to the movement which developed under the leadership of the late Mirza Bashiruddin Mahmud Ahmad (based first at Qadian, India, till 1947, and then at Rabwah, Pakistan), and was later headed by Mirza Tahir Ahmad, who was based in England from 1984 onwards.

Under the following topics, we refute some of the wrong beliefs of the Qadiani movement, and show that Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad himself never entertained any such views:

Mirza Mahmud Ahmad’s claim of being Muslih Mau‘ud:

When Mirza Mahmud Ahmad announced this claim in 1944, Maulana Muhammad Ali refuted it immediately. Read the following Friday Khutbas by Maulana Muhammad Ali:

    Sworn declaration by Maulana Muhammad Ali:

    “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.”
    Background to this sworn declaration. (Read in biography of Maulana Muhammad Ali)
