QUESTION:

Please give me explanation about Ahmadiyah movement.

Are they right or wrong or possibly right or possibly wrong? And why?


ANSWER:

The Ahmadiya sect was founded in Qadian, Punjab in1889 by one Mirza Gulam
Ahmad.

He claimed not only that he was a Mahdi but also a re-incarnation of
Krishna and that he was the Prophet of Islam in succession to the Holy Prophet.  
Some say that he claimed to be the reappearance (burooz) of the Holy Prophet. On 
the
death of Mirza Gulam in 1908 the Ahmadiya community elected  Moulvi
Nuru-Deen to be the khalifah. When Nuru-Deen died in 1914 the majority of the 
community continued to believe that Mirza Gulam was a prophet in succession to 
the Holy Prophet. There was a minority splinter group in Lahore which declared 
that
Mirza Gulam was a reformer (mujaddid).

As the Ahmadiyas believe that Mirza Gulam was a prophet they cannot be
accepted within the fold of Islam. The Muslims, the sunnis as well as the 
shiahs,
universally believe that Muhammad (SAWA)  was the last of the prophets of
Allah (SWT) as attested by the Holy Qur'an, Chapter 33, Verse 40 where Allah 
says,

"Muhammad............is the messenger of Allah and the last of the prophets".

The expression used literally means the seal of the Prophet "khataman
nabiyyin" but there can be absolutely no doubt that even in the context of a 
seal it
has a definite finality.

There are many ahadeeth of the Holy Prophet which leave no doubt that there
would be no prophet after him. He is reported as having said : "Bani
Israeel had prophets who were leading them. When one died another would 
succeeded him. But after me there will be no prophet. I am khatiman nabiyyin."  

There can be no doubt that as far as the belief of the Ahmadiyas is concerned
it is not only un-Islamic but contrary to the Holy Book.

If you have any supplementary questions please do not hesitate to submit
them to the Alim Network.


With salaams and du'aas from a humble servant of Ahlul Bayt and their
followers, and with a request to be remembered by you in your prayers,

Bashir Rahim
