No.7 / Rabi-ul-Awwal 1419 / June 1999
Syedna Muhammad was the Last Prophet in the long line of Prophets of Allah who brought Holy Quran as the Final Message that the Creator has sent for the guidance of humanity for all times to come. We, the Ummah of Muhammad (May Love and Peace of Allah eternally shower upon Him), have been exclusively honoured with this Divine Gift, and were given the glad tidings of this bounty in the following words by Allah:
"This day I have perfected your religion for you, completed My Favor upon you, and have chosen for you Islam as a way of life for you." (Quran 5.4)
This belief in the Finality of Message and the Messenger and the Perfection of their Religion is what distinguishes Muslim nation from all other religions, and stands as a barrier against all heretical movements and disintegrating forces which arose from time to time in the vast world of Islam. Quran, books of Hadith and Seerah, books of history, and various scriptures of other religions, have all testified to Syedna Muhammad being the Last and Final Messenger of Allah and is synonymous with the belief of Perfection of Religion and Quran being the Final Revealed Message from Allah for the guidance of his creations. Allah says in Quran:
"Muhammad is not the father of any man among you, but he is the Messenger of Allah and the Seal of the Prophets; and Allah is Aware of all things." (Quran 33.40)
Holy Prophet Muhammad announced:
"Verily, Risalat and Nabuwwat are terminated. So there shall be neither a Rasool (Messenger) nor a Nabi (Prophet) after me." (Tirmidhi vol.2 p.51; Masnad Ahmed)
All Prophets had given the glad tidings of the coming of a new Prophet but Holy Prophet Muhammad warned us that:
"In my Ummah there shall be born thirty liars, each of them claiming that he is a prophet BUT I AM THE KHATAM-UN-NABIYEEN, THERE SHALL BE NO PROPHET AFTER ME." (Abu Dawood, Tirmidhi)
Jamaat Ahmadiyya and Revolt against Syedna Muhammad’s Prophethood
Among the different anti-Islamic movements that have arisen from time to time during the last 1400-year history of Islam, Qadianism/Ahmadiyya Movement is unique. Mirza Ghulam Ahmad Qadiani, the founder of Ahmadiyya Movement, has attacked both, the Message (Quran) and the Messenger, revolting against the Prophethood of Syedna Muhammad as well as attempting to alter and distort the message of Quran. Disguising themselves as the champions of Islam, they are deceitfully spreading their false doctrine, taking advantage of the ignorance of unsuspecting Muslims in various parts of the globe. Muslims, by and large, know the basic tenets of Islam, but they are ignorant of the pious fraud of Ahmadiyya Movement in the name of Islam. Few people know that this man, who started as a preacher and defender of Islam, was programmed by his colonial masters – The British Raj – to undermine the Love of Muhammad Rasoolullah in the hearts of Muslims and undermine the spirit of Jihad in the hearts of Muslims by distorting/altering the Quranic teachings, thus attempting to divide the Ummah.
Mirza Ghulam claimed to be a prophet:
"Dead are those who did not accept one Holy Messenger. Blessed is the one who had recognized me. Amongst ALL THE WAYS of Allah I am the last Way and from all His Lights, I am the Last Light. Unfortunate is the one leaves me, since without me there is all darkness." (Kishtee-e-Nooh, Roohani Khazain vol. 19 p.61)
Later he claimed to be the Second Advent of Holy Prophet Muhammad.
"'Muhammadur Rasoolullah wal lazeena m'ahoo, ashiddao 'ala alkuffare rohamao bainahum' in this revelation God has named me Muhammad as well as Messenger." (Roohani Khazain vol. 18 p.207)
"When I am the Holy Prophet re-incarnate and when all the accomplishments of Muhammad including the prophethood are reflected in the mirror of my shadiness, then who is the separate man who has claimed prophethood?" (Ek Ghalti Ka Izala, p.8; Roohani Khazain, vol.18, p.212)
"I am the only one selected in this Ummah to get the name of ‘Prophet’. No one else deserved this name.... and it was bound to happen... so that as mentioned in the Sahih Hadith that ‘there will be only one such person’, that prophecy is fulfilled." (Haqeeqatul Wahi, Roohani Khazain vol. 22 p.407)
Thus Mirza stole the title of Khatam-un-Nabiyeen – the Final Prophet – from Holy Prophet Muhammad and applied it on himself. Later on Mirza lays the foundation for a parallel ummah, by labeling the entire Muslim nation as Kafirs and Bastards:
"Except for the CHILDREN OF PROSTITUTES, whose hearts have been sealed by God, everyone else believes in me and has accepted my prophethood." (Aina-e-Kamalat-e-Islam, Roohani Khazain vol.5 p.547)
"God has revealed to me that anyone to whom my message has reached and he has not accepted me, he is not a Muslim." (Letter Mirza to Dr. Abdul Hakeem)
Mirza’s son, Mirza Bashir Ahmad declared:
"Any person who believes in Moses but does not believe in Christ, or believes in Christ but does not believe in Muhammad, or believes in Muhammad but does not believe in the Promised Messiah, is not only a Kafir, but a 'PUKKA' (confirmed) Kafir, and is out of the fold of Islam." (Kalimatul Fasl, page 110, by Mirza Bashir Ahmad)
Alteration in Holy Quran and Ahmadiyya Jamaat
Ahmadiyya Jamaat boasts of printing Holy Qurans in several languages. What people do not know is that Mirza Ghulam and his Jamaat have systematically attempted to distort the Message of Quran. The alteration in Quran can be done in following ways: Alteration in text of Quran Alteration in translation and interpretation of text Misapplication of Quranic verses Abrogation of Quranic laws
Mirza Gulam A. Qadiani is guilty on all four counts. While the Arabic text of Holy Qurans has not been tempered with but he has helped himself freely with the distortion in translations, interpretations and misapplications of various verses.
Alteration in text of Quran:
Despite the fact that the Arabic text in printed Quran’s of Jamaat Ahmadiyya have not been altered, but Mirza Gulam have altered the Arabic text of various verses while quoting them in his books. Few examples are attached with this leaflet.

Alteration in Translation & Interpretation:
Examples of alteration in the meanings of Holy Quran are plenty, the most famous being the verse 33:40: Muhammad is not the father of any of your men, but (he is) the Messenger of Allah, and the Seal of the Prophets: and Allah has full knowledge of all things. In the light of this verse and Hadiths of Holy Prophet about His Finality as a Prophet and Messenger of Allah, all through the ages Muslims have unanimously believed Rasoolullah Muhammad to be the Last and Final Messenger of Allah – the Khatam-un-Nabiyeen. But ask any Qadiani/Ahmadi follower of Mirza Ghulam and they will play the same record: No No! This Seal (Khatam) is not the seal of Finality, it is the seal of approval for future prophets. But then, after sneaking through this back door of prophethood, he closes it again by saying: "Blessed is he who has recognized me. Of all the paths to God I am the Last Path, and of all his Lights, I am the last Light. Unfortunate is he who forsakes me, because without me all is darkness". (Roohani Khazain, vol.19, p.61)
But they have no reply to this question: What do you call a man, who steals the title Khatam-un-Nabiyeen from the Holy Prophet?
They are dumbfounded!
Misapplication of Quranic Verses:
Holy Quran is full of verses where Allah is praising His Most Beloved Prophet Muhammad. For example: al-Quran 9:33, 17:1, 3:31, 48:1-2, 36:1-3, 108:1, 21:107 etc. are all famous verses, which were exclusively revealed to Glorify the Prophet of Islam.
However open the books of Mirza Gulam, especially Haqeeqatul Wahi, vol.22 Roohani Khazain, and you will find that from pages 77 to 111, a shameless plagiarization of the Quranic text, which Mirza mentions as samples of his revelations/inspirations, revelaed again to praise Mirza! For instance:
"He it is Who hath sent His Messenger with the guidance and the Religion of Truth, that He may make it triumph over all religions." (As-Saff 61:9) (Tazkirah pp.387-388, 4th Edition)
"Say (O Muhammad, to mankind): If ye love Allah, follow me; Allah will love you." (Aal-Imran 3:31) (Haqiqat-ul-Wahi p.82)
"Nor doth he speak of (his own) desire. It is but a Revelation revealed." (An-Najm 53.3-4) (Tazkirah p.378 )
"Say (O Muhammad): O mankind! Lo! I am the Messenger of Allah to you all." (Al-A'raf 7:158) (Tazkirah p.352, 4th Edition)
"Lo! Those who swear allegiance unto thee (Muhammad) swear allegiance only unto Allah. The Hand of Allah is over their hands."(Al-Fath 48:10)(Haqiqat-ul-Wahi, 80)
"Say: I am only a human being like yourselves. My Lord reveals unto me that your God is only One God." (Al-Kahf l8:110) (Haqiqat-ul-Wahi, p.81)
"Verily We have given thee (O Muhammad) a manifest victory, that Allah may forgive thee of thy faults of the past and the future."(Al-Fath48:1)(Haqiqat-ul-Wahi p.94)
"Verily We have sent unto you (O men!) a Messenger as a witness over you as we sent a Messenger unto Pharaoh." (Al-Muzammil 73:15) (Haqiqat-ul-Wahi, p.101)
"To thee have We granted the Fountain (of Abundance)". (Al-Kauthar 108:1) (Haqiqat-ul-Wahi, p.102)
"Yaseen. By the Quran, full of Wisdom, thou art, indeed one of the Messengers sent on a straight path." (Ya-Sin 36: 1-3) (Haqiqat-ul-Wahz, p.107, Tazkirah, p.479)
"And thou (Muhammad) threwest not (a handful of dust) when thou did St throw, but Allah threw." (Al-Anfal 8:17) (Haqiqat-ul-Wahi p.70)
"Verse of Holy Quran (17:1) 'Subhan alLazee asra be'abdehee lailan min al-Masjid alHaram ila alMasjid alAqsa.....' Glory be to Him who took His Slave in the night from Masjid Haram to Masjid Aqsa...., its literal and true application is that Mosque which has been built by Mirza's father and whose extension has been done by Mirza." (Collection of Advertisement vol.3 p.286)
Imagine! For centuries Muslims were stupid to fight over the possession of the Holy City of Jerusalem. According to Mirza Ghulam Masjid Aqsa is in Qadian and Holy Prophet went to Qadian and not Jerusalem on Night of Ascension. What a service for the Jews!!
Abrogation of Quranic Law:
The concept of Jihad in Islam is a legitimate war with well defined aims and purposes: to suppress tyranny, insure the right of a man to his home and freedom within his nation, prevent persecution in religion, and guarantee freedom of belief to all people. Allah says:
"And fight them until persecution is no more, and religion is for Allah. But if they desist, then let there be no hostility except against wrongdoers (Zalimeen)." (Quran 2.193)
"And slay them wherever you find them, and drive them out of the places whence they drove you out.." (Quran 2.191)
"And wage war on all idolaters as they are waging war on all of you. And you know that Allah is with those who keep their duty (unto Him)." (Quran 9.36)
Despite these clear injunctions from Allah, at the behest of his masters, Mirza Ghulam abrogated the concept of Jihad. He wrote:
"From my early age till now when I am 65 years of age, I have been engaged , with my pen and tongue, in an important task to turn the hearts of Muslims towards the true love & Goodwill & sympathy for the British Government and to obliterate the idea of Jihad from the hearts of stupid (Muslims). " (Kitab-ul-Bariyah, Roohani Khazain vol. 13 p.350)
"For the sake of British Government, I have published & distributed 50,000 leaflets in this country and other Islamic countries (against Jihad)..the result is that hundreds of thousands of people have given up their filthy ideas about Jihad." (Roohani Khazain vol. 15 p.114)
It is all these insults against the Holy Prophet of Islam and attempts to distort the message of Quran, which led the entire Muslim Ummah to declare Mirza Ghulam and his Ahmadiyya Jamaat as non-Muslim and out of the fold of Islam. But they continue to portray themselves as the only champions of Islam and thus luring the ignorant and innocent Muslim masses, especially in Africa, from the Islam of Holy Prophet Muhammad to the deceitful doctrine of Mirza Ghulam’s ‘Ahmadi Islam’. May Allah protect all Muslims from this fraud in the name of Islam and show the ignorant Ahmadi followers true face of Mirza Ghulam Qadiani, for they have no access to his original writings. Ameen.
Wassalam to those who follow the hidayah
