TRUTHFULLENESS OF ISLAM AHMADIYYAT
TRUTHFULLENESS OF ISLAM AHMADIYYAT
The Ahmadiyya Muslim Jamaat is a divine community established by God Almighty in 1889 and it is the only community, with a Khalifa (spiritual leader) appointed by God Almighty. It is the revival of the True Islam that was brought by the Holy Prophet s.a.w, the Seal of the Prophets. It is that community which has accepted the call of the Holy Prophet s.a.w, when he had instructed the Muslims, “If you find the MAHDI, take bait on his hands even if you have to crawl on your knees over ice” (Ibne-Maja Kitabul Fitan). We have accepted the Second Coming of the Messiah, Hadrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad of Qadian a.s, which was promised by God Almighty to come in the latter days to bring back the true picture of Islam.
When one studies the beliefs of Ahmad a.s and his Jamaat, it is alleged that it is against the Holy Quran and the Muslims of today. It certainly is against the strayed beliefs of the orthodox Muslims of today, but when one truly ponders over our beliefs, it can be said without a doubt that it is supported by the Holy Quran and the authentic hadith. The fact of the matter is that, the mainstream Muslims would agree that they are all on one side of the rope in regards to their beliefs about the end of prophet hood and the physical ascension of Isa a.s (although their belief regarding prophethood is contradictory). They agree that all of them together accept these beliefs and oppose the one sect of Ahmadiyyat. According to the Holy Prophet s.a.w, the latter day Muslims will be broken up into 73 sects just like the Jews were broken into dozens of sects as well. All of them will be towards the hell fire (the wrong beliefs) and only one of those sects will be on the right path. Now who is on the right path according to this hadith? All the dozens of sects who are all on one side in regards to their belief, or the one sect that is being opposed by them? It is Ahmadiyyat that is the one sect that is following the True Islam, and is being opposed by all the other 72 sects that allege that their beliefs are the true beliefs, despite the fact that the Holy Prophet s.a.w has said that all 72 of them will be on one side and those would be the people that are astray. Regarding the Jews, the Holy Prophet s.a.w is narrated to have said, “Surely things will happen to my people as happened earlier to Israelites, they will resemble each other like one shoe in a pair resembles the other…” Trimizi, Kitabul Eeman. Now let us illustrate how the non-Ahmadi Muslims do in fact fulfill this Hadith with their mistaken beliefs and exactly resemble the Jews (Israelites). To begin with, the first Messiah (Hadrat Isa a.s) was rejected by the Jews of his time since they believed that Elijah had to have physically come walking down from the sky before the Messiah was to appear. It is accepted by all Muslims that Hadrat Isa a.s was the Messiah and a truthful prophet of God. So what was Hadrat Isa’s a.s explanation towards this absurd allegation from the Jews regarding the physical descension? He pointed to John the Baptist and said that he was the Elijah that the Israelites were waiting for. Now how could John the Baptist have been that Elijah if no one had come soaring down from the skies? The fact is that, and this is agreed by all the Muslims, that John the Baptist was that Elijah spiritually; in other words, Elijah had come in the name of John the Baptist. Now let us see how this same allegation is placed on the shoulders of Ahmad a.s. by the Muslims of today. When the second Messiah (Hadrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad a.s) made his claim, the non-Ahmadi Muslims immediately rejected him, and declared him an apostate. Just like the first Messiah was rejected because Elijah, according to the Jews, did not come physically walking down from the skies, Ahmad a.s is also rejected since, according to the non-Ahmadis,...
