Beware of Pretenders
All Praise is due to Allah(SWT), the Lord of the universe, Who commissioned Prophet Muhammad(SAW) as a great reformer for the wellbeing of the worlds. The believers, who are knowledgeable of the authentic teachings of Islam and conduct their lives accordingly, will be successful both in this world and in the hereafter.
In Islam, Allah(SWT) has completed and perfected His religion, established a lasting Guidance, and fulfilled His promise to mankind. Thus, Muhammad(SAW) is the last Prophet to be elected - there will be no new Prophet or Messenger after him and no new revelation after the Holy Quran.
According to well established Islamic principles, anyone who claims to be a new Prophet after Muhammad(SAW) should be rejected as an impostor. This is due to the fact that Prophet Muhammad(SAW) has emphatically stated to be the last Prophet and has forewarned the believers about the appearance of impostor Prophets.
Shortly after the death of Prophet Muhammad(SAW), Sayyidina Abu Bakr(RA), in agreement with the other learned companions(RAs), declared war against the imposter Prophet Musylema Kazzab and put an end to his evil scheme. In the subsequent centuries, other false claimants also appeared, but their movements were quickly quelled by devote believers, eager to keep the religion of humanity pure from corruption.
As long as the Muslims remained in power, no claimant to Prophethood was ever tolerated or allowed to find a following among the unlearned. However, after the decline of the Muslim khilafat, the colonial forces, who had usurped power, lent their support to false Prophets and conspired with such movements to erode the Muslim identity and create confusion among future generation of believers.
Among the false claimants who appeared during this period, the most infamous are, Mirza Ghulam Ahmed Qadiani of Punjab (the founder of Ahmadi/Qadiani movement), Muhammad Ali and Ali Hussain of Iran (the founders of Babi and Bahai movements), and Elijah Muhammad of USA (the founder of the Nation of Islam). Even today, their unfortunate followers are actively engaged in propagating the baseless and erroneous ideas of their founders around the world.
Qadianism was a stepchild of the British Empire and, since its rejection by the Muslims of Pakistan, has relocated its headquarters to London, England. It is from that location, and its other central bases of operations in Israel, United States, and Canada, that Qadiani missionaries are spreading their false doctrine on Islam via missionary workers, satellite programs, and publications. They often present forged Ahadith, misquote Muslim scholars, and rely on baseless and deceptive conjecture of selected verses of the Holy Quran to misguide the naive and entrap the non-Muslims in the name of Islam.
Under these cir*****stances, the most effective remedy for eradicating the falsehood of Qadianism is to create awareness about the well-established doctrine of the Finality of Prophethood and deceptive arguments of the Qadiani missionaries. It is also imperative that every false notion raised by the Qadiani leadership, on the finality of Prophet Muhammad(SAW) and other Islamic ideology, be tackled by logical and scholarly replies.
All Muslim brothers and sisters are invited to extend their full cooperation towards this worthy cause and help save as many individuals as possible from the evil of such misguided movements.
Let there arise among you those who invite to good, enjoin what is right, and forbid what is evil: They are the ones to attain felicity. (Holy Quran, Al-i'Imran, 3.104)
