Mirza Qadiani's Anti-Islamic Claims
Dr. Syed Rashid Ali
All Praises are for Allah, the One and Only. His Love and Blessings may eternally shower on Holy Prophet Muhammad, after whom there is no prophet.
Recently a pamphlet has been distributed by Qadianism Movement in various parts of the world, ‘Ahmad in praise of Muhammad’
For the benefit of those who are not aware of Indo-Pak culture, names like Ghulam Ahmad,Ghulam Rasool or Ghulam Ali or Abdul Rehman etc. etc. are composite and they mean Ghulam (slave) of Ahmad, Slave of Rasool, Slave of Ali or Servant of Rehman respectively. It is therefore Interesting how a Ghulam or slave of Ahmad dare to become Ahmad in his own right. Can a servant ever be coequal to his Master?
It contains such quotations from the books of their founder, Mirza Qadiani,trying to prove that he was intoxicated with the love of Holy Prophet Muhammad , full of praises for Allah, Holy Quran and Islam. These quotations portray a very beautiful character. However what general people do not know is that Mirza Qadiani had at least two distinct phases in his life. One extended from his childhood into his early adult life.Being born in a Muslim family, during this period he was a devout Sunni Muslim. It was during this period that we such writings where he declared time and again his Muslim Ahle-Sunnah wal Jamaat faith, his veneration for the Holy Prophet of Islam and his eagerness to serve Islam. Although he received formal education at home, he did not attend any of the established schools (madrassah) of religious education, nor did he became affiliated to any of the Shaikhs of Tariqah (Sufism) as his spiritual guide. Rather he helped himself freely with various religious material available to him forming his own opinions and conclusions. If there was any deviation from the established doctrine of Ahle Sunnah wal Jamaat it was hardly noticeable.
During the later part of his life, his thoughts and beliefs exhibited a noticeable change and initially at least Mirza Qadiani made attempts to backtrack from his statements or writings to dampen the backlash of Muslims. However with the passage of time he became more and more defiant and audacious in his heretical views. It is this another aspect, this transformation, of Mirza Qadiani's personality which is hidden from the public eye and which is hardly ever mentioned and quoted in the propaganda literature of Qadianism Movement.
Another fact worth remembering are those writings of Mirza Qadiani in which he confesses to be suffering from various diseases afflicting his brain and higher mental functions. He mentions about Melancholia (Maniac Depressive Psychosis), Mirraq (Hypochondriasis), Attacks of unconsciousness, Amnesia, Forgetfulness, Insomnia, Hysterical Fits, Attacks of Heart Fits (Nervous Breakdown), Dizziness, Diabetes mellitus, Excessive Urination of upto 100 times per day. He obsessively complains of Impotence and Lack of Sexual Power. He mentions of scores of Medicines used for all these ailments which he was either preparing himself or getting others to prepare for him. There are mentions of using of Tonic Wine and Opium for such maladies. Even much so that my entity became his entity. Thus he who joins my Jamaat really becomes one of the Sahaba of my Chief who was better then all the Prophets. It is not hidden from those with the ability to think that this is what the words "others of them" mean. The person who differentiates between me and Mustafa (i.e. Holy Prophet pbuh) has neither seen me nor recognized me".
(Khutbah-e-Ilhamiah, Roohani Khazain, vol.16, pp.258-259)
It was then just a matter of time that he started claiming to be the reincarnation of Holy Prophet Mohammad. Thus a GHULAM BECAME THE MASTER.
Mirza Qadiani claims to be Mohammad
Mirza Qadiani says:
"'Muhammadur Rasoolullah wal lazeena m'ahoo, ashiddao 'ala alkuffare rohamao bainahum' in this revelation God has named me Mohammed and Messenger as well."
(Roohani Khazain vol. 18 p.207)
Mirza Qadiani said: "Holy Prophet has two advents or in other words you can say that in one Buroozi way coming again of Holy Prophet was promised which has been fulfilled by the appearance of Promised Messiah and Promised Mahdi."
(Roohani Khazain vol. 17 p.249)
Mirza Qadiani says:
"I have said several times that according to the verse (of Holy Quran) 'wa akhareena minhum lamma yalhaqoo behim' as Burooz I am the same Prophet, the Khatamul Anbiyyah, and 20 years ago God named me Mohammed and Ahmad in Braheen-e-Qadianism and declared me His Being."
(Aik ghalti ka azala, Roohani Khazain vol. 18 p.212)
Mirza Qadiani said:
"The Holy Prophet had two births as a Prophet. In other words, we may say that it was promised that the Holy Prophet would be born in the world once more (reincarnated) and this was fulfilled by the incarnation of the Promised Messiah and the Promised Mahdi".
(Tohfa-e-Golravia, Roohani Khazain vol. 17 p.249) Mirza said:
"When I am the Holy Prophet incarnate and when all the accomplishments of Muhammad including the prophethood are reflected in my mirror of my shadiness, then who is the man who has claimed prophethood in a separate being?" (Ek Ghalti Ka Izala, Roohani Khazain, vol.18, p.212)
Such beliefs and writings of Mirza Qadiani led his follower to express boldly their beliefs in following terms. Mirza Basheer Qadiani s/o Mirza Qadiani says:
"Maseeh Mowood is not a separate thing from Holy Prophet , but it is He Himself who has come again in this world in Buroozi form..... therefore is there any doubt that God has sent Holy Prophet again in Qadian?" (Kalimat Alfasl p.104-105, Review of Religions Qadian March 1915)
"Now it is clear that if rejecting Holy Prophet is KUFR then rejecting Promised Messiah should also be KUFR, because Promised Messiah is nothing separate from Holy Prophet, but it is Him and if he who rejects Promised Messiah is not KAFIR then the rejecter of Holy Prophet is also not Kafir, God forbid." (Kalimat alFasl p.146-147 Review of Religion, Qadian, Mar-Apr 1915)
"Thus does any doubt remain that God has sent Muhammad () again in Qadian to fulfill his promise?" (Kalimat alFasl by Mirza Basheer Qadiani, Review of Religions p.105, No.3, vol.14)
Mirza claims to be equal to Prophet Muhammad :
It was just another step forward to equate himself with Holy Prophet. Mirza said: "Anyone who differentiates between me and MUSTAFA (), he has not seen me and has not recognized me." (Roohani Khazain vol. 16 p.171)
Official Qadiani mouthpiece, Al-Fazl from Qadian wrote:
"The entity of the promised Masih (Mirza), in the sight of Allah is the entity of the Holy Prophet . In other words, in the records of Allah there is no duality or difference between the promised Masih and the holy Prophet . Rather they both share the same eminence, the same rank, the same status and the same name. Although verbally they are two, yet in reality they are one and the same". (Al-Fazl, Qadian, vol.3, No.37, dated 16th September 1915, as cited in Qadiani Mazhab page 207, 9th edition, Lahore)
The QADIANI KALIMA
Next Step was quite natural for his close companions to take:
"With the coming of Promised Messiah one difference (in the meaning of Kalima) has occurred and that is that before the advent of Promised Messiah, in the meaning of 'Muhammad ur Rasoolullah' only Prophets of bygone days were included, BUT with the advent of Promised Messiah, ONE MORE PROPHET HAS BEEN ADDED TO THE MEANING OF MuhammadUR RASOOLULLAH ...... thus to enter in Islam it is still the same Kalima, the only difference is that the advent of Promised Messiah has added one more prophet to its meaning...we don't need a new Kalima, because Promised Messiah is nothing separate from Holy Prophet, as he says: 'saara wujoodi wujoodahoo (my person became his person)' and 'he who differentiates between me and Mustafa has not seen me and not recognizes me'.....thus Promised Messiah is Muhammad Rasoolullah himself who has come again in this world to spread Islam, therefore we do not need any new Kalima. Yes if someone else had come then we may have required it --- thus think all of you." (KalimatAlFasl p.158 by Mirza Basheer Qadiani)
"As a result of the birth of the Promised Messiah (the Qadiani Mirza) a difference has cropped up (in the meaning of the Kalima). Before the birth of the Promised Messiah (the Qadiani Mirza) in the world as a prophet, the words Muhammadur Rasoolu Llah) included in their meaning only such prophets as had preceded him; but after the incarnation of the Promised Messiah (the Qadiani Mirza) in the world as a prophet, one more prophet has been added to the meaning of Muhammad ur Rasoolu Llah. Therefore on account of the incarnation of the Promised Messiah the Kalima, God forbid, does not become abolished; it rather shines more brightly. In short, the same Kalima is (effective) even now for embracing Islam, with the only difference that the incarnation of the Promised Messiah (Mirza Qadiani) has added one more prophet to the meaning of Muhammad ur Rasool Llah". (Kalimatul Fasl, page 158, by Mirza Bashir Ahmad Qadiani)
"Moreover, even if we accept by supposing the impossible that the sacred name of the Gracious Prophet () has been included in the sacred Kalima because He is the Last of the Prophets, even then there is no harm and we do not need a new Kalima because the Promised Messiah is not a separate entity from the gracious Prophet as he (Mirza) himself says: "My being is exactly the being of Muhammadur Rasoolu Llah". Also, "One who discriminates between me and Mustafa has neither recognized me nor seen me". And the reason for this is Allah Almighty's promise that He would reincarnate "Khatam un Nabieen" in this world once more as a prophet as is evident from the verse "And others of them... Thus the Promised Messiah (Mirza Qadiani) is himself Muhammadur Rasoolu Llah, who has been incarnated in the world again to spread Islam. We do not, therefore, need any new Kalima. Albeit, a new Kalima would have been necessary, if some other person had been reincarnated instead of Muhammadur Rasool Llah. So contemplate!" (Kalimatul Fasl, page 158)
QADIANI DUROOD SHAREEF
"Thus according to the verse (of Quran) 'O people of the faith! Send your Salat on Him and salute Him with the Salutation (33:56) and according to those Hadiths in which there are instructions to send Durood on Holy Prophet , sending Durood on Mirza Qadiani is just as necessary as it is on the Holy Prophet ." (Risala Durood Shareef by Mohd Ismael Qadiani p.136)
"According to the traditions in Islam and Hadith, it is necessary to clearly include His (Holy Prophet ) Family in Durood; Similarly albeit more importantly it is necessary to clearly send Durood on Maseeh Mowood and not to be contended with that General Durood which reaches him (Mirza) as well when one sends Durood on Holy Prophet . Thus Mirza Qadiani says:
'One of the objections of the ignorants is also this that the followers of this man (Mirza) apply on him the words ['alaihe assalato wa assalam] and to say this is HARAM. The answer to this is that I am the Promised Messiah, and leave aside the saying of Salaat and Salaam, Holy Prophet Himself said that he who finds him, convey His salaam to him; and in all Hadiths at hundreds of places Salaat-o-salaam is mentioned for the Promised Messiah. When such words about me are said by The Prophet, Sahaba has said, rather God has said, then how can it be Haram for my Jama'at to say such words for me." (Risala Durood Shareef, Arba'een No.2 Roohani Khazain vol.17 p.349)
Mirza Plagiarizes verses of Holy Quran
This self proclaimed intoxicated lover of Holy Prophet became so much consumed with his love that he started having revelations (delusions of grandeur!) informing him that all those verses revealed in the glory of Holy Prophet Muhammad are now being revealed in Mirza Qadiani's honor. Open Haqeeqatul Wahi in volume 22 of Roohani Khazain and you will find that from pages 77 to 111 Mirza Qadiani has mentioned samples of his revelations/inspirations, a mixture of Arabic, Urdu, Persian, Punjabi and occasional English. Those who are familiar with Holy Quran will immediately recognize the extent of wholesale plagiarism of various verses of Holy Quran, Here one will find those verses which were revealed to Glorify Holy Prophet Muhammad and some which were used for Hazrat Ibrahim (AS). Only Few examples will be mentioned here. Allah Glorifies Holy Prophet Muhammad and His Companions in Holy Quran in the following verse:
"'Muhammadur Rasoolullah wal lazeena m'ahoo, ashiddao 'ala alkuffare rohamao bainahum' Muhammad, the Messenger of Allah, and those who are with him (i.e. His Companions) are....." (Al-Quran 48:29) For the last fourteen centuries Muslims have never had any other meanings to this famous verse. But Mirza's WAHI informs him: "'Muhammadur Rasoolullah wal lazeena m'ahoo, ashiddao 'ala alkuffare rohamao bainahum' in this revelation God has named me Mohammed and Messenger as well." (Roohani Khazain vol. 18 p.207)
Likewise following is the list of some verses of Holy Quran, which every Prophet-loving Muslim will immediately recognize to be venerating and glorifying Syedna Muhammad , were ALLEGEDLY REVEALED AGAIN to glorify Mirza Qadiani. Mirza:
"'Howa allzi arsala rasoolahu bil huda' He (Allah) is the one who has sent His Messenger with guidance...." (al-Quran 9:33)
"'Subhan allazi asra be 'abdehee ....' Glorified be He (Allah) who took His Servant on the Journey by Night from Masjid alHaram to Masjid alAqsa...'" (al-Quran 17:1)
"'qul in kuntum tuhibboonal Llaha fa al-tabe'oonee...' Say (O Muhammad!) If you really love Allah, then follow me..." (al-Quran 3:31)
"'Inna fatahna laka fathun mubeena...' Verily! We have given You (O Muhammad) a manifest victory...." (al-Quran 48:1-2)
"'Ya Seen wa alQuran alHakeem. Innaka la minal mursaleen....' Yaseen! By the Quran, full of wisdom. Truly You (O Muhammad) are one of the Messengers." (al-Quran 36:1-3)
"'Inna a'atainaaka alKauser...' Verily! We have granted you (O Muhammad!) a river in Paradise..." (al-Quran 108:1)
"'wa Maa arsalnaaka illa Rehmatal Lil 'alameen' And We have not sent you (O Muhammad!) save as a Mercy for All the Worlds." (al-Quran 21:107)
Having thus pilfering the role of Holy Prophet , he and his followers started helping themselves of all the other Muslim epithets and titles. For example:
His family became AHLE BAIT
His companions became Sahaba
Wife of Mirza started being addressed as UMM-ul-M'oMINEEN:
Mosque built by his father became al-AQSA MOSQUE in QADIAN
For 1400 years Muslims were wrong about the sanctity of the Holy City of Jerusalem. Actually according to Mirza Qadiani Masjid Aqsa is in Qadian. Holy Prophet went to Qadian and not Jerusalem on Night of Ascension. Mirza says:
"Verse of Holy Quran (17:1) 'Subhan alLazee asra be'abdehee lailan min alMasjid 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." (Advertisement for collection of donation for Minarat-ul-Maseeh, Collection of Advertisement vol.3 p.286)
QADIAN became as sacrosanct as ARDH-e-HARAM and coming to visit that place became a SHADOW HAJJ:
"The land of Qadian is now respectable Crowd of people has made it Land of Haram". (Mirza Qadiani's poetry, Dur-e-sameen p.56)
"People go for ordinary and supererogatory (Nafly) Hajj. But in this place (Jalsa Salana in Qadian) the reward is more than NAFIL HAJJ and to remain neglectful is harmful and dangerous since the Way (of Qadianism) is divine and order is from God." (Aina-e-Kamalat-e-Qadianism, Roohani Khazain vol.5 p.352)
"Since only those people can go on Hajj who have the means and are rich, although Divine Movements always initially spread amongst the poor and poor are excused from Hajj. Thus God has fixed one more ZILLI HAJJ so that those people with whom He wants to take the task of Islam's uprising and those poor that is the Muslims of India may also participate in it." (Khutba Mirza Mehmood Qadiani, Khalifa Qadian, Newspaper alFazl vol.20 No.66 dated 1st Dec 1932)
The Wahi of Mirza Qadiani
By this time Mirza became bold enough to talk openly about his inspirations/revelations. He thus declared openly about his WAHI:
"The basis for our claims is not Hadith but Quran and that Wahi which comes to me. Yes, in support we also present those Hadith which are according to Quran and DO NOT CONTRADICT MY WAHI. Rest of the Hadith, I THROW THEM AWAY LIKE A WASTE PAPER." (Roohani Khazain vol.19 p.140)
"In Braheen-e-Qadianism, God has called me by the name of Ibrahim......" (Arba'een No.3, Roohani Khazain, vol.17 p.420)
"My teachings contain orders as well as prohibitions and renovation of important injunctions of the Shari'at. For this reason God has named my teachings and the 'wahi' (revelation) that comes to me as a 'boat. Thus see, God has declared my 'wahi', my teachings and allegiance with me to be Noah's Ark and the basis of salvation for all human beings. Let he who has eyes may see and he who has ears may hear." (Arba'een, Vol. 4, footnote of page 6; Roohani Khazain, Vol. 17, p. 435).
"I say with swearing upon God that I believe in these inspirations in the same way as I believe in Quran and other books of God. And just as I consider Quran undoubtedly and surely the book of God, similarly I believe that that wahi which descends upon me is the word of God." (Haqeetqatul Wahi, Roohani Khazain vol.22 p.220)
"I have similar faith in my Wahi as on Holy Quran and Torah." (Arba'een No.4 , Roohani Khazain vol.17 p.454)
"and the Word of God descended so much on me that if it is collected it will not be less than 20 parts." (Haqeeqatul Wahi, Roohani Khazain vol.22 p.407)
Mirza Better than Holy Prophet Muhammad (ma’azAllah): However Mirza Qadiani was still not satisfied with his progress. He wanted to improve further. Was it spiritual evolution or delusions of grandeur, it is anyone's guess. His next step was claiming superiority and excellence over Holy Prophet Muhammad . He said:
"But the fact is that the spirituality of Holy Prophet (in the form of Mirza Ghulam) in this end of the sixth millennium, that is in these days, is much more stronger and perfect and forceful as compared to those (first) years, like a full moon." (Khutba-e-Ilhamiah, Roohani Khazain vol. 16 p.271)
"The spirituality of our holy Prophet was conceived in 5th thousand (i.e. Makki birth) with its precise attributes and that period was not the climax of his spirituality's development. It was rather the first step to the highest pinnacle of its perfection. Thereafter this spirituality manifested itself in its full glamour during the 6th thousand (his rebirth in Qadian) at the present time". (Mirza in Khutba-e-llhamiyah, Roohani Khazain, Vol.16, p.266)
He pointed to his followers that he has been given 300,000 signs and miracles whereas Holy Prophet was given just 3000. Praising himself, he wrote in his poetry: "For the Holy Prophet God showed only the sign of Eclipse of Moon But for me he has shown the sign of Eclipse of both Moon and Sun, thus will you disbelieve me." (Aijaz-e-Qadiani, Roohani Khazain vol.19 p.183)
He claimed that certain concealed or secret meanings of Holy Quran were not revealed to the Holy Prophet , but he has been informed about them. Thus Holy Prophet did not understand the meaning of Ibne Maryam, Dajjal, Donkey of Dajjal, Gog and Magog, Daabatul Ardh. (Izala-e-Auham, Roohani Khazain vol.3 p.473)
"The Islam (of Holy Prophet) started like a new moon and it was destined to become (during the time of Mirza) like a full moon." (Roohani Khazain vol.16 p.184)
"And it is obvious that the Fath-e-Mubeen (Distinct Victory) came during the time of our Prophet and another Victory remained, which is much greater and more obvious; and it was destined that its time would be the period of Promised Messiah." (Roohani Khazain vol.16 p.288)
Following poetry was recited in front of Mirza Qadiani by a follower. Mirza is reported to have said: 'JazakAllah' and after having written it in beautiful calligraphy, hung it in his house. "Muhammad has descended again amongst us and is greater in his glory than before He who wants to see Muhammad in perfection Should look at Ghulam Ahmad in Qadian." (Qazi Zahoor Ahmad Akmal Qadiani, printed in Qadiani Newspaper Paigham-us Sulh dated 14th March 1916)
"The mental development of the Promised Messiah (i.e. the Mirza Qadiani) was higher than that of the Holy Prophet . And this is only a part of the superiority which the Promised Messiah has over the Holy Prophet. The mental faculties of the Holy Prophet could not manifest fully owing to the deficiency of civilization; although the ability existed. They have now manifested themselves fully through the Promised Masih by virtue of the advancement of civilization." (Review of Religions, May 1929, Qadiani Mazhab, p.266, 9th Ed. Lahore)
Mirza further degrades Holy Prophet Muhammad Holy Prophet Muhammad did not understand the correct meaning of Surah AlZilzal. (Roohani Khazain vol.3 pp.166-167)
Holy Prophet's revelation also turned out to be false. (Roohani Khazain vol.3 p.472)
Holy Prophet has also committed mistakes in understanding revelations. (Roohani Khazain 2 vol. 2 p.224)
Grave of the Holy Prophet is one of the Most Sacred site for Muslims all over the world. This is how Mirza humiliates it (May Allah and His Messenger forgive me for quoting such profanity):
"And God chose such a DESPICABLE PLACE to bury the Holy Prophet which is EXTREMELY STINKING and DARK and CRAMPED and was the PLACE of the EXCRETA of INSECTS…" (Roohani Khazain vol.17 p.205)
Claims to be the FINAL PROPHET
Having reached this far, it was not surprising that he claimed to be THE FINAL PROPHET.
"Time and again I have said that according to the verse 'wa aakhareena minhum lamma yalhaqoo behim - and others of them who have not yet joined them..'(al-Quran 62:3)
in BUROOZI form (translated by Qadianis as Image/Alter-ego/Counter-type) I am the same prophet, the KHATUM-UL-ANBIYA (Last of the Prophets). And twenty years ago God named me Muhammad and Ahmad in Braheen-e-Qadianism, and declared that I am the Holy Prophet's incarnation. Thus my prophethood in no way clashes with the status of Holy Prophet as the Last of Prophets, because shadow is inseparable from the original. Since I am Muhammad in a 'shadowy way', thus this way the Seal of the Last of the Prophets is not broken, because the prophethood of Muhammad remained with Muhammad." (Mirza Qadiani in Ek Ghalti Ka Izala, Roohani Khazain vol.18, p.212)
"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". (Kashti-e-Nooh, Roohani Khazain, vol.19, p.61)
"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)
"The Prophethood ended on our Prophet . Therefore after Him there is no Prophet except who has been illuminated by His Light and who has been made His inheritor by God. Know that Finality was given to Muhammad since the Beginning; and then given to him (i.e. Mirza) who was taught by His Spirit and made His shadow. Thus blessed is the one who taught and blessed is the one who learned (i.e. Mirza). Thus FINALITY was destined for the SIXTH MILLENEUM, which is the sixth day in the days of God...... Thus the Promised Messiah was born in the SIXTH Millennium." (Zamima Khutba Ilhamiah, Roohani Khazain vol. 16 p. 310)
Mirza Basheer Qadiani s/o Mirza Qadiani writes:
"Thus only one person got the status of Prophethood in the Ummah of Muhammad....except for the Promised Messiah (Mirza) no one followed Holy Prophet to such perfection to be called the Shadow of Holy Prophet. Therefore only Promised Messiah was chosen to be called the Prophet." (Kalimat Al-Fasl, Review of Religions, Qadian, p.116, No.3, vol. 14)
Official Qadiani Magazine wrote:
"These quotations prove that except for the Promised Messiah no one else can be a Prophet...After Holy Prophet only one Prophet was necessary and the coming of too many Prophets would have hindered the Wisdom and Schemes of God." (Tasheed-ul-azhan, Qadian, No.8, vol.12, p.11 dated August 1917)
Mirza flays Islam
Mirza says THE PRE-MIRZA ISLAM IS A 'DEAD RELIGION'
"Probably in the year 1906, at the proposal of Khwaja Kamaluddin, Moulvi Muhammad Ali entered into an agreement with the Editor of Akhbar-e-Watan to the effect that the Review of Religions would publish no articles about the (Qadiani) sect; it would only publish general articles on Islam and the Editor of the Watan would propagate in his paper for the assistance of the Journal, Review of Religions. The promised Masih disapproved this proposal and it was strongly opposed by the Jamaat also. Hazrat Sahib said:
'Will you present dead Islam before the world by excluding me?" (Zikr-e-Habib by Mufti Muhammad Sadiq Qadiani page 146, First Edition)
"We believe that a religion which does not have the continuity of Prophethood (as in Islam) is a dead religion. We call the religions of the Jews, the Christians and the Hindus dead only because now there are no prophets in them. If this were the position in Islam too, we would be no more than mere storytellers. Why do we regard it superior to other religions? It must have some distinction". (Malfoozat-e-Mirza, Vol. 10, page 127)
MIRZA DECLARES ISLAM AS THE ACCURSED, SATANIC AND CONTEMPTIBLE RELIGION
"That religion is no religion and that prophet is no prophet by following whom a man does not come so close to God as to be honored with divine conversation. That religion is ACCURSED and CONTEMPTIBLE which teaches that human progress depends only on a few narrated anecdotes (i.e. stories in Holy Quran and the Shari'at-e-Muhammadia which is narrated from the Holy Prophet - Compiler) and that the 'WAHI' has lagged behind instead of going ahead......hence such a religion deserves to be called SATANIC rather than divine religion." (Zamima Braheen-e-Qadianism, Part V, Roohani Khazain, Vol. 21, p. 306)
"How absurd and false it is to believe that after the Holy Prophet the door of the divine 'wahi' has been closed for ever and there is no hope of it in the future till the Day of Resurrection - just worship the stories. Can a religion having no direct trace of Almighty Allah be called a religion? . . . . . I say, by Almighty God, that in this age there is no one more fed up than myself with such a religion. I name such a religion as Satanic religion and not Rehmani (divine) and I believe that such religion guides towards Hell and keeps one blind in life and till death." (Zamima Braheen-e-Qadianism, Part V, Roohani Khazain, Vol.21, p354)
MIRZA and HOLY QURAN
"Quran is God's Book and words of my mouth." (Advertisement dated 15th March 1897, Roohani Khazain vol.22 p.87)
When Mirza Qadiani was challenged that his writings contain abusive remarks about his opponents, he declared that Quran is also full of filthy words and enumerated several words in Quran as being filthy according to current standards. (Roohani Khazain vol.3 p.115-117)
Alterations in the Holy Quran:
There are several manners in which it can be done:
1.Alteration in text.
2.Alteration in its meanings/translations.
3.Alteration in the application of verses.
4.Canceling certain orders of Quran.
Mirza Qadiani had been guilty of performing all four crimes. Whereas he has not changed the Arabic text in the Holy Quran, but when he has quoted such text in his various books, he has DELIBRATELY ALTERED some of the Arabic text. Examples of such can be viewed here.
Well known example of the alteration in the meanings of Holy Quran is the verse 3:144 regarding the FINALITY OF PROPHETHOOD. Since the dawn of Islam, right from Holy Prophet Muhammad till today all Muslims have always considered it to be an unequivocal announcement of the Finality of Prophethood. Even Mirza Qadiani during the early years had the same belief. However later on when his views changed, he gave this fantastic explanation that Prophethood of Muhammad is not the SEAL of FINALITY but a SEAL of APPROVAL for future Prophets, as if ALLAH, who had sent 124,000 Prophets has now delegated the responsibility to Holy Prophet Muhammad . Yet he claimed that he is the ONLY next PROPHET, the Last Light among all the lights of Allah. In other words, all those mind boggling explanations he gave in his books for this verse was just a ploy to justify his claims of prophethood. He opens the door of KHATME NABUWWAT, enters it and then once again closes it. Isn't it a worst example of pilferage?
Similarly readers must have read above how the application of verses Glorifying Holy Prophet Muhammad have been changed by Mirza and applied onto himself.
ABROGATION of JIHAD
Abrogation of Jihad by Mirza Qadiani is a conspicuous example of tampering with the laws of Quran. On the contrary Qadianism literature denies that their founder ever abrogated Jihad. Just a few quotations would suffice here:
"From today human Jihad which is done by sword, is being ABROGATED by the order of GOD. From now on, anyone who lifts a sword on a Kafir and calls himself a Ghazi, he is disobeying that Messenger , who had informed 1300 years ago that after the coming of Promised Messiah all Jihads with sword will end. Thus now after my arrival THERE IS NO JEHAD WITH SWORD. From our side we have raised the flag of Peace and Friendliness." (Collection of Advertisement p.295, vol.3)
"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 (India) 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)
Mirza and the Muslims
Some one asked a question about Muslims and Mirza gave a following reply that is worth reading. Both are mentioned in his book, Haqeeqat-ul-Wahi.:
"Question: Huzoor-e-aali has mentioned in thousands of places that it is not at all right to call KAFIR a Kalima-go (one who recites a Kalima) and an Ahle-Qibla. It is quite obvious that except those Momineen who become Kafir by rejecting you, just by not accepting you, no one becomes a Kafir. But you write to Abdul Hakeem Khan that anyone who has received my message and he has not accepted me, he is not Muslim. There is contradiction between this statement and the statements in previous books. Earlier in Tiryaq-ul-Quloob etc. you had mentioned that no one becomes Kafir by not accepting you and now you are writing that by rejecting me he becomes a Kafir. Answer: This is strange that you consider the person who rejects me and the person who calls me Kafir as two different persons, whereas in the eyes of God he is the same type; because he who does not accept me is because he considers me a fabricator.... apart from this, he who does not accept me, he does not believe in God and His Prophet as well, because there is God92s and his Prophet's prophecy regarding me" (Haqeeqat-ul-Wahi, Roohani Khazain vol.22 p.167)
"Except for the CHILDREN OF PROSTITUTE, whose hearts have been sealed by God, everyone else believes in me and has accepted me." (Aina-e-Kamalat-e-Qadianism, 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 of Mirza to Dr. Abdul Hakeem Khan Patialvi)
"I have God's inspiration that he who does not follow you and will not enter your Ba'ith and remain your opponent, he is disobedient of God and His Prophet, Hellish." (Advertisement in M'ayaar-ul-Akhyar by Mirza Qadiani p.8)
"Thus remember as God has informed me, it is forbidden and absolutely forbidden to pray behind any disbeliever and hesitant; but is should be that your imam should be one of you." (Arbaeen No 3, Roohani Khazain vol.17 p.417 footnote)
I hope that by now you have a clear picture of what this man stands for. Claims of his intoxication with love of Prophet of Islam is just a ploy to attract innocent, unsuspecting and ignorant Muslims into the fold of Qadianism. The questions that you should be asking yourself are:
Are these quotations presented in this book true?
If so, then has he really praised Syedna Muhammad or Slandered him?
Can such a person be a sane man ?
If so, does such a person deserve to be called a Muslim?
Why is Qadianism Movement hiding this aspect of their founder?
Why is Qadianism Movement so anxious to portray Mirza Qadiani as a truly devout follower and devotee of Holy Prophet ?
Mirza Qadiani declares his position in the following poetry:
I am an earthworm My dear! Not a human being, I am the obscene part of men and the shameful place of humans (Braheen-e-Qadianism V, Roohani Khazain vol.21 p.127)
May Allah show the light of Islam to all those who have been led astray by this fraudulent propaganda in the name of Islam. May Allah protect the faith of all Muslims from such deceptions. Ameen.
Peace be upon those who follow the right path.
