Islamic Ideology (04 Aug 2018 NewAgeIslam.Com)


  • Nobody is sent by God. Mohammed is not god sent. Quran is not god sent. itis man made. If God were to sent a Messenger to guide Mankind, He must have sent  One to each street.Then only the sent Messiah could fulfill his assignment. aSingle  Arabian could hardly fulfil a tremendous assignment . It highly nonsense to believe that pr.Mohammed was sent by God to guide the whole world.

  • If u dont believe in the finality of prophethood of muhammad... Ur belief is un islamic... Then even if u write beautiful tafseer, or pray 5 times... Do all the right deeds.... The articles of faith are to be upheld under all circumstances....and the tafseer need not to be beautiful... It needs to be accurate/appropriate.... Any deviation will invite the curse or wrath of God.... Let them include the point that muhammad is the seal of prophethood/messengers....

  • I was listening to a video of the late Dr Israr Ahmed on the Ahmediyya. I have a low opinion of our traditional Islamic scholars who are mostly extremely narrow minded bigots but Dr Israr Ahmed is even more extreme!  You do not ex-communicate a community that is 20 million strong. Instead, what is required of right thinking Muslims is to:

    1. Study the reasons why this phenomenon of someone declaring himself a Nabi has occurred in the first place. What falsehoods do the Muslims believe in which led to it and clean up our act. The answer here is simple. It is our false beliefs in the return of Jesus (pbuh) towards the end of times and also in the coming of a Mahdi. There are also scholars who have said that the Mahdi and Jesus are the same person and not two different persons. There are also scholars who have agreed that Jesus died and will not return. So if the Mahdi and Jesus are one and the same and a Mahdi will come and not Jesus, then the Mahdi is Jesus like. This is precisely the claim made by Mirza Ghulam Ahmad at the beginning of the 14th century Hijra because there is another hadith predicting the coming of a Mahdi in the 13th century. Having rejected Mirza Ghulam Ahmad's claims, have the Muslims recanted on the false hadiths and the false interpretations of the Quran? This was a disaster waiting to happen because of the existence  of the false ahadith and the Muslims who believe in them. If it is kufr for the Ahmediyya to believe in what they believe, it is equally kufr for the Muslims to believe in the false ahadith even after these have been proved to be false.

    2. What made Muslims in such large numbers join the sect? What is missing among the mainstream Muslims that is found in this sect? There were no monetary or worldly incentives for people to join, but on the other hand people who wished to join had to sign a pledge to diligently observe every pillar and tenet of Islam and pay Zakat @6.25% which is 250% of what other Muslims pay. The missionary and religious zeal among the people who joined this sect is clearly far greater than what is found among the mainstream Muslims.

    The response to such a strong movement cannot be saying that the founder is wajib-e-qatal (deserving to be killed) and those who join it are murtad (apostates) for whom the appropriate punishment is death as Dr Israr has done. Such a response is both barbaric and insane.

    A terrible mistake facilitated by the false ahadith, false interpretations of the Quran and false beliefs almost the Muslims has happened and it is best to accept the mistake and make changes.

    The Ahmediyya community broke up into two groups - one which believes that their founder is not a nabi but zilli nabi or a shadow nabi and the other which believes that he was nabi. Mirza Ghulam Ahmad himself revised his claim and said that he was a zilli nabi and not a real nabi. There is therefore scope for rapprochement of the various groups and views. 

    To the Ahmedi's themselves, it must be obvious that all this business of the coming of a Mahdi, is a figment of the imagination of weak escapist minds. The prediction that the people will flock to the Mahdi in hordes and accept Islam making it the dominant religion has failed. Mirza Ghulam Ahmad is therefore not such a Mahdi predicted in our false ahadith. Mahdi literally means only "rightly guided" and in that sense, anyone who is rightly guided can be called a Mahdi. The true legacy of Mirza Ghulam Ahmad is not his views or his writings or his beliefs or his claims but the dynamism that he brought among the Muslims and the desire for excellence which needs to be celebrated and preserved. He was otherwise another mortal prone to error and his error does not take away anything from the great contribution his followers have made. His legacy is also not to blindly follow the imams (Taqleed) but to chart out a new path and his followers can best honour his memory not through Taqleed of his ways and views, but by rejecting what they find was an error of his judgment. We do not become lesser by acknowledging and accepting a mistake and nothing changes otherwise. What is there anyway in a name or nomenclature? What does actually change by calling him only an Imam and not Nabi? His argument that calling him a Nabi would make prophet Muhammad (pbuh) appear greater than Jesus (pbuh) was specious to begin with and contradictory to the Quran which instructs the Muslims not to make any distinction between the prophets. In any case, such a claim has made no difference to the perceptions of people.

    By Naseer Ahmed - 8/9/2018 11:29:00 PM

  • Umar Khan Sb asks "Why do you call them good Muslims?"

    The answer is very simple. Read the Quran verse 9:5 in which the only proof that is asked of a person who claims to be a Muslim is that he should “establish regular prayers and practise regular charity” For such people, Allah asks the Prophet (pbuh) to open to them the door of Islam “for Allah is Oft-forgiving, Most Merciful”

    Now who are we to close the door of Islam to a people who:

    1.     Pray five times a day plus Tahajjud

    2.     Pay 6.5% as Zakat when the rest of the Muslims pay only 2.5%

    3.     Observe fast during Ramadhan

    4.     Perform Hajj

    5.     Are engaged in spreading Islam in the world

    If you consider their practices, they are better Muslims than those who hate them on each of the five parameters.

    Now, for their calling Mirza Ghulam Ahmad the promised Mahdi, blame the ahadith rather than him. Do the Muslims recant on their numerous ahadith as falsehood that prophesise the coming of a Mahdi? I believe, the prediction is that he would come in the 13thcentury Hijra. “When one thousand and two hundred and forty years will pass, God will raise Mahdi.”(An-Najmus Saqih, Vol. 2, p. 209).  We are now in the 14th century. So, if no Mahdi has come, then the hadith is false. With the 13th Century coming to an end and Mirza Ghulam Ahmad not seeing anyone else more qualified than himself, do you blame him for courageously picking up the throne which no one else was prepared to touch and placing it on his own head? This tragicomic situation has arisen only because many of our ahadith are falsehoods. The ahadith contradict the Quran on every subject.

    Let us recant on our ahadith that falsely prophesise the coming of a Mahdi in contradiction of the Quran and concede that Mirza Ghulam Ahmad is the victim of a false hadith rather than a deliberate sinner and accept the Ahmadiya back into the fold of Islam. In any case, we are no one to shut the door on them and it does not behove us to play God. The Ahmadiya are more sinned against than sinning. What has attracted many Muslims to the sect is its zeal, dynamism, love of Islam and love of Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) and not any worldly gain. Are we so blind that we cannot see that they are a sincere people even if they are misguided in our opinion?

  • Why do Ahmadia call so? because, Ghulam Ahmad proclaimed. "I am Isa Ma'hood, I am Mehdi later on I am prophet, Wahhi is descending on me, and the same Quran is re-revealing to me. So his followers call him a Nabi." According his books -Izalah Auham, Ittimam-e-Hujjat, If you have any favorable feeling, then ask to the relatives of Muhammadi Begum about his Nabuwat.

  • Why do Muslims try to second guess Allah and say who will be punished by Allah? Isn't trying to second guess Allah itself a serious form of kufr? Who has given the Muslims such authority to second guess Allah?

     Have the Muslims become so devoid of any good that they can only define their worth in terms of their degree of hatred for other communities? Isn't it kufr to bear hatred in our hearts for other people and desire their punishment?

     When Allah does not rule out forgiveness for the Christians inspite of their believing in the divinity of Jesus (pbuh) and their concept of trinity, why do the Muslims think that the Ahmadiya's will not be forgiven? Does Allah judge us by the best of our deeds or by our worst? Those who think that the Ahmadiya's are certain to be punished for their being an Ahmadiya believe in a God who judges people by their worst. If good deeds are the criteria, the Ahmadiya community is way ahead of their detractors and haters.

     There is no doubt in my mind about two things:

     1. There is no mention of any Mahdi in the Quran or the return of Jesus (pbuh). The Quran is categorical in saying that Muhammad was the last of the prophets. Belief in a Mahdi who has already come or a Mahdi who will come or the second coming of Jesus are all equally false. 

     2. This issue is such a burning issue only because we have come to worship not only Allah but also our Nabi, and while we are more tolerant of those who associate partners with Allah, we are extremely intolerant of those who associate a Nabi with our Nabi to the extent that our Kalima mentions only Muhammad to the exclusion of all others. This is contrary to the Quran instructing us not to make any distinction. This over reaction is a form of kufr. Nabi is not an object of worship and there have been thousands of Nabi's. A false claimant should have been a problem if he in any way, tried to undermine Islam and the last messenger. On the contrary, there is absolute affirmation in the religion revealed to Muhammad (pbuh) without an iota of change by the Ahmadiya.

     Ironically, if you read the history of the sect, it is extreme love for our Prophet Muhammad (SAS), and the desire to save Islam and the Muslims from the onslaught of the Christian Missionaries, that pushed Mirza Ghulam Ahmad, to believe and declare himself a Nabi. If intentions are the yardstick to determine kufr, then Mirza Ghulam Ahmad is free from the taint although he is mistaken in his belief that he was a nabi.

    The counter attack that comprehensively defeated the propaganda war of the Christian Missionaries for all time to come and made them run for cover, was the brainchild of  Mirza Ghulam Ahmad and published in his book “Brahin-e-Ahmadiyya”. Other Islamic luminaries of the time had no effective answer. The book was hailed by several Islamic luminaries of the time. The following is in the words of Muhammad Hussain Batalavi.

     “In our opinion, it is in this time and in the present circumstances, a book the like of which has not been written up to this time in Islam, and nothing can be said about the future; Allah may bring about another affair after this. Its author, too, has proved himself firm in helping the cause of Islam, with his property, his person, his pen, his tongue and his personal religious experience, to such an extent that it is rarely seen among Muslims who have gone before. If someone thinks that my words are Asian exaggeration then show me at least one such book that confronts opponents of Islam especially the Arya Samaj with such gusto and enthusiasm. And point out such supporters of Islam who have taken upon themselves to help the cause of Islam with their property, their person, their treasure, their pen, and their tongue. And who has successfully challenged, with all his manly courage, opponents of Islam and deniers of revelation that if they doubt divine revelation to visit him and experience, observe and taste it. (Batalavi, 1884: 169-170)”

    The above was before Mirza Ghulam Ahmad declared himself a nabi, after which the same Muhammad Hussain Batalavi became his foremost denouncer. The book has been used extensively by the likes of Ahmed Deedat with great effectiveness although Deedat is not an Ahmadiya.

    Mirza Ghulam Ahmad was at first even reluctant to accept the bayat (pledge) of those who were eager to offer their bayat to him and therefore, I do not believe that his declaring himself as nabi subsequently, had anything to do with the desire for self-glorification. It was the desire to defeat the fitna of dajjal (as he saw it) in the form of the onslaught of the Christian and Arya Samaj missionaries, that made him see himself as the promised Mahdi, as he alone had an effective answer for them. The fact is that Mirza Ghulam Ahmad, has rendered yeoman service to the cause of Islam and the community of his followers continue to do so,

    The problem to my mind, lies in the numerous ahadith on the Mahdi to come, which have influenced the founder of the Ahmadiya sect to think for good reasons, that he is such a Mahdi. Do those who oppose the Ahmadi beliefs recant from those numerous ahadith about the Mahdi? I, who consider all those ahadith as false, and does not believe that Mirza Ghulam Ahmad was a nabi, or that a Nabi/Mahdi is foretold, has no problem with the Ahmadiya and their beliefs, while those who believe in such ahadith about a Mahdi, have a problem!

    As for me, I differ with Mirza Ghulam Ahmad even on his ideas that shaped his counter attack although it proved very effective. I do not think that the defence of our Prophet and the defence of Islam requires us to attack the attackers’ religion and their concept of their holy men. Islam is strong enough to stand on its own on an absolute standard and requires no argument based on historical relativism or any other kind of relative comparison.

  • A better question  would be to ask if a group uses Islam to become better persons and more peaceful  communities or does it use Islam to promote violence and hatred. Arguments about what this or that verse means or does not mean never lead to any resolutions.

    By Ghulam Mohiyuddin - 8/5/2018 11:25:51 AM

  • Since this article is based on a request to explain the meaning of Wakhātama L-Nabiyīnain in verse 33:40 of the Quran, it is not complete without taking into account the argument of the Ahemdiya community for believing their imam to have been a prophet. They quote verse 4:69 in their support on one of their websites.: alislam.org/library/articles/khataman-nabiyyeen-through-the-eyes-of-the-promised-messiah/

     “And whoso obeys Allah and this perfect Messenger shall be among those on whom Allah has bestowed His blessings, i.e. the Prophets, the Truthful (Siddiq), the Martyrs (shuhuda), and the Righteous (saliheen). And they are an excellent company. (4 [Al-Nisa]:69)”

     to infer that whoso obey Allah and His perfect Messenger, can be a Prophet, Siddiq, Shuhuda or a Saliheen!

     The error is obvious. What the verse is saying is that such a person will find himself in the exalted company of the prophets, the Siddiq, the Shuhuda and the Saliheen in the Hereafter, and not that such a person will become a Prophet, Siddiq, Shuhuda and Salih. A person can be considered a Salih or Shahid or Siddiq or all three depending upon his talent and what he makes of himself through effort. Not everyone who obeys Allah and His Messenger can become a Siddiq or Shuhuda although everyone can be among the saliheen by being righteous. What these words mean are explained in my article:

     The Role Models in the Quran

    To become a prophet is beyond man. The best he can hope is to be admitted to the company of the prophets in the Hereafter.

     The last Messenger has given us the Last Book, which is enough to guide man to the straightway, the way of those on whom is Allah’s grace. We do not need an imam or a prophet to guide us anymore. The Book is enough for a guide. (75:19) Nay more, it is for Us to explain it (the Qur’an) and make it clear:

    By Naseer Ahmed - 8/5/2018 2:11:46 AM

  • Since Sunnis and Shias and their hundreds of factions and divisions denounce and cast “brimstone and fire” on each other as non-Muslims (kaafir) – meree nazar may tu hai kaafir, teree nazar may main' hun' kaafir, yet all are accepted as this Muslims and that Muslims without any discrimination. One must ask as to why the Ahmadis are specifically discriminated against and persecuted in Pakistan for calling themselves Muslims and particularly so on State basis?

    What is the Islamic justification for that in the “Islamic State”?

    Is it not the obligation of any State worth its salt to protect all its non-combatant and allegedly peaceful Ahmadi minorities who are its citizens?

    They say, it was a Shia Muslim who though is highly and commonly regarded as the “Father of the Nation” except of course denounced by the religious brigade – fee sabilillah fasaad , the mischievous Johnnies who came later and disturb the peace! Is it not up to the State then to punish them?

    If Mirza G. Ahmad designated himself as everything religious on earth and his followers are mislead to accept it, is it not up to God whose ad-Deen they flouted, to deal with them – la kum Deenu-kum wali ad-Deen?
