EXPOSING QADIANI PROPAGANDA
Nowadays, the Qadiani movement gaining ground. In the name of Islam, its followers are making sordid attempts to destroy Muslims' faith in the belief of the Sealing of Prophethood.
We would not have had any problem with them, if they said that they were founding a new religion or a new faith; but that is not the case with them. These people dress like Muslims, have names like Muslims, but do not believe that Prophet Muhammad (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) is the last and Final Prophet, as the Quran and Hadith order us to believe. They say that in the Ummah of Prophet (صلی اللہ علیہ وآلہ وسلم) "Zilli" (i.e. he who enjoys the favor and patronage of the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) and "Buroozi" i.e. (he who emerges after the Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam as (false) prophet) Prophets can also come. They are called as” Follower-Prophet”. (Ummati-Nabi) Mirza Qadiani claimed Prophet Hood on this basis only. These people,(the Qadianis), believe in him (i.e. Mirza Qadiani) as a prophet. The Sealing of Prophethood is a basic article of faith. Anybody who sways from this even to the extent of a hair's breadth is out of the fold of Islam. Accordingly, this brief booklet is being penned in the light of the Quran, Hadith, and the explanations given by the Jurisprudents (Fuqaha), Exegetes (Mufassirin) and Experts of the Prophetic Traditions (Muhadditheen) of the Ummah.
False claims and apostasies of Mirza Qadiani
Mirza Qadiani has laid many false claims in his books. Claim of Mujddadiyat (Reviver of religion), Claims of being similar to Prophet Isa (Alaihis salam), Claims of being the Messiah and finally he claimed Prophethood (May Allah save us from all that). He writes in Izalat ul Auhaam “In Baraheen e Ahmadiya, the Lord has addressed this humble servant as the Prophet and also as a follower”. (May Allah protect us). In the guise of “Divine Inspiration”, he has tried to cite the Lord Almighty Allah Subhanahu wa ta’ala as the nominator to his false claims of being similar to the Prophets (Peace be upon them) and of being equal of the Seal of the Prophets, Muhammadur rasool Allah (صلی اللہ علیہ وآلہ وسلم). He writes, “And then the similarity reached such levels, that many times, the Lord addressed me as "O Ahmad" and made me an “Apparent Equal” to the Leader of all Prophets and the saints Hadhrat Muhammad (صلی اللہ علیہ وآلہ وسلم).-Izlalatul Auham Vol I pg no.105
To answer the claims of the Liar and Apostate Ghulam Qadiani, Shaykh Ul Islam, Arif billah Imam Muhamad Anwar Ullah Farooqui, (May Allah shower His Mercy on him) authored Ifadatul Afham in 2 sizeable volumes. He answered all his gibberish claims and declared him to be out of the fold of Islam. In the beginning of the above mentioned book, he listed all his false claims under the name of “Mafateehul A’alaam”. These claims expose his apostasy and disinformation. Some excerpts of this list are being mentioned here, so as to reveal how this liar has upset and misguided Muslims.

Many claims of this nature in the books of the Qadianis reveal Ghulam Ahmed Qadiani’s guile and deception. When Muslims believe that Prophet Muhammad (صلی اللہ علیہ وآلہ وسلم ) is the Seal of all Prophets i.e. the Last and Final Prophet and after Him no prophet whether it is “Zilli”, “Buroozi”, or “Prophet in-part” can come. The door of Prophethood has been closed after the arrival of Prophet Muhammad (صلی اللہ علیہ وآلہ وسلم ). After Him there is neither “Complete Prophet Hood” nor “Prophet Hood-in-part”. When Ghulam Ahmed Qadiani has claimed to be a prophet (as proven above), then the insistence of his people that he has not done so is mere lies and rejection of truth. Affirming Prophet Muhammad (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) to be the Prophet and still believing in some “Apparent” or “Secondary” prophet is against the Verses of the Quran and the frequently occurring Traditions (Ahadith e Mutawatir) i.e. against the Nusus e Qataie of Islam and is nothing but apostasy and defection from Islam.
Ruling on attending Qadiani conventions and maintaining relations with them:
In the light of the Quran, Hadith and the Consensus (Ijma') of the Ummah, this sect is out of the fold of Islam. In reality this sect is a conspiracy against Islam. Maintaining relations with them and attending their conventions is prohibited and forbidden for common Muslims. Attending their conventions believing them to be correct is in itself apostasy (Kufr) and defection from Islam. Allah SWT says in the Holy Quran, " And when thous seest those who meddle with Our revelations, withdraw from them until they meddle with another topic. And if the devil cause thee to forget, sit not after the remembrance, with the congregation of wrong-doers." Surah Anam Verse no.68.
Prophet Muhammad (صلی اللہ علیہ وآلہ وسلم ) has expressly prohibited Muslims from their company and also from maintaining any kind of relations with them. Accordingly there is a tradition in Sahih Muslim, " The Holy Prophet (صلی اللہ علیہ وآلہ وسلم ) says, " In the last era, dajjas, liars, deceivers (and such) false people will come. They will preach such things which neither you would have heard nor your forefathers would have heard. You maintain a distance from them and keep them at a distance from yourself lest they misguide and throw you into some trial (Fitnah)." Sahih Muslim Vol I Pg No.10 Hadith Number 70.
Also in Sunan Ibn e Majah, “And if they fall ill do not call on them, if they die do not participate in their funeral, if you meet them do not greet them with Assalamalaikum.” Sunan Ibn Majah, Muqaddimah, Bab ul Qadr.
Qadianis present themselves as Muslims, when because of their unislamic beliefs, the whole Ummah holds them as out of Islam. For this reason, Islam has such stringent rules in regard to them. Otherwise, if any nonmuslim does not embrace Islam, Islam is not thrust upon them, as there is no compulsion of any kind in Islam.
Even under an Islamic government, nonmuslims are given complete religious freedom. Keeping in mind the standards of humanity, we are instructed to treat them nicely – If they fall ill, as a human being, they should be called upon. Sahih Bukhari-Chapter of funerals
If they are poor, then they can be helped monetarily as well as the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) sent aid for the Meccans, when they were in the grip of a famine. (Radd ul Muhtaar Vol II Pg No.92)
Sealing of Prophet Hood is established according to the most authentic sources
Allah SWT says in the Holy Quran, " Muhammad (صلی اللہ علیہ وآلہ وسلم ) is not the father of any man among you, but he is the messenger of Allah and the seal of all Prophets: and Allah is ever Aware of all things." Surah Ahzab Verse no-40
This verse of the Quran Al-Kareem establishes explicitly that The Pride of the Creatures, the raison d’être of the universe, Our Master Hadhrat Muhammad Mustafa (صلی اللہ علیہ وآلہ وسلم ) is the Last and Final prophet. After Him, no Prophet of any kind will come. The series of Prophethood has been terminated on Him. Arrival of any Prophet after Him is inconceivable and impossible. There is no place left in the Palace of Prophethood that any prophet after Him should fill. Prophethood has been concluded with Him.
Proof according to the recurrent (Mutawatir) Traditions
In the books of the authentic Traditions, in Sunan, in the Collections (Masaneed), there are many traditions that occur frequently. Therefore in Bukhari there is a Tradition, " It has been narrated on the authority of Hadhrat Abu Hurairah (May Allah be well pleased with him) that the Holy Prophet (صلی اللہ علیہ وآلہ وسلم ) said, Verily My example and the example of the Prophets (Peace be upon them all) preceding Me is as if a person constructed a palace very nicely and beautifully, but left the space of one brick in a niche. People crowd round that niche, express their happiness and exclaim why this brick has not been placed. So, I am that brick and I am the Last Prophet." Sahih Bukhari, Chapter of the Seal of all Prophets, pg vo.501
The Chain of Prophethood has been terminated. After Prophet Muhammad (صلی اللہ علیہ وآلہ وسلم ) there cannot be any “Zilli” or “Buroozi” prophet.
The knowledge that Prophet Muhammad (صلی اللہ علیہ وآلہ وسلم ) is the Last and Final Prophet and after Him no prophet will come is one of the most basic articles of the Islamic Faith. It has been established both by the Verses of the Holy Quran and the Frequently occurring (Mutawatir) Traditions (Ahadith) and also by the Consensus of the Ummah. Rejecting it or trying to explain it in some other manner which leads to a different explanation other than the one given by the Elders of the Ummah or trying to bypass it in using figurative interpretations (Tawil) is explicit apostasy (Sareeh Kufr). The Lord Almighty has seated the Master of both the worlds Muhammad Mustafa (صلی اللہ علیہ وآلہ وسلم ) on the glorious seat of the Final Prophet.
The collection of Tirmidhi has a tradition “The Prophet (صلی اللہ علیہ وآلہ وسلم ) has said, ’Verily, Prophethood has been terminated. After me there will neither be no nabi nor any rasool.’” Jame' Tirmidhi Vol II Pg no.3
The Negation (la) brought in this Hadith before the word “Nabi” and the word “rasoola” is a total negation. According to Arabic Grammar, when a negation is used before a common noun, it means” wholly” or “entirely” or "of any kind". This establishes that after Prophet Muhammad (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) there cannot be any zilli, buroozi or prophet-in-part.
Even after this explicit tradition, if any Muslim believes that after the Prophet Muhammad (صلی اللہ علیہ وآلہ وسلم ) any kind of “Zilli” or “Buroozi” prophet can come, then that Muslim is out of the fold of Islam and is an apostate (Kafir). A tradition is Sunan Ibn e Majah, Chapter of Trials says that “I am the Last Prophet and you are the last Ummah.” Prophets were sent to guide and lead mankind. Whenever any Prophet passed away another was sent. But, the Seal of the Prophets, Muhammad Mustafa (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) was sent to guide and lead the whole of mankind. Sahih Muslim, Kitabul Masajid wal Mawazi' pg no.199 has a Tradition, " I have been sent towards the entire creation and prophethood has been ended with Me." Prophet Muhammad’s (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) Prophethood is for all the creatures and for all mankind till the Day of Judgments. Till the end of this world, Prophet Muhammad’s (صلی اللہ علیہ وآلہ وسلم) Divine Code (Shariat) will be practiced. There is no need for any other Prophet or any other Divine Code.
The Lord has completed the Shariat e Muhammadi (صلی اللہ علیہ وآلہ وسلم ), "This day, I have perfected your religion for you and completed My favor unto you, and have chosen for you as religion AL-ISLAM." Surah Maidah Verse-03
When Prophethood has been concluded after The Seal of the Prophets (صلی اللہ علیہ وآلہ وسلم ), when His Shariat is for all times, arrival of any prophet is inconceivable and impossible. After the Prophet (صلی اللہ علیہ وآلہ وسلم ) Prophethood will not be there but Caliphate will be there as Sahih Bukhari, " The Holy Prophet ((صلی اللہ علیہ وآلہ وسلم ) said: The people of Israil (Bani Israil) were led by their Prophets. Whenever any Prophet passed away into the presence of Allah, another Prophet came as his successor and after Me, there is no Prophet and soon there will be Caliphs and they will be numerous."
Also in Kanzul 'Ummal, Bab Fazaial As Sahabah, “Prophethood is for me and Caliphate is for you.” It is also mentioned in Kanzul 'Ummal, “I am the last of all Prophets and My Mosque is the last among the mosques of the Prophets.”
Using Figurative interpretations (Tawil) to bypass the belief of Sealing of Prophethood is the like rejecting the most authentic sources of Islam
The belief in the termination of Prophethood is a very basic article of faith for the Muslims. Bypassing it in any manner so as to create room for any false claimant to Prophethood and claiming to be "Zilli”, “Buroozi” or “prophet-in-part” after Prophet Muhammad’s (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) arrival is the rejection of the most authentic sources ( Nusus e qataiea) recurring (Mutawatir) Traditions (Ahadith) and is apostasy and defection from Islam.
When Prophet Muhammad (صلی اللہ علیہ وآلہ وسلم ) appointed somebody as His Deputy, He also negated the possibility of another prophet so that no liar or Dajjal should lay claim to Prophethood.
If Prophet Moosa (Peace be upon him) also comes, He will have to follow and imitate Prophet Muhammad (صلی اللہ علیہ وآلہ وسلم )
If the Prophets who preceded Prophet Muhammad (صلی اللہ علیہ وآلہ وسلم ) arrived in the blessed time of Prophet Muhammad (صلی اللہ علیہ وآلہ وسلم ), they would have been His followers ( ummati) and not Prophets. And they would have followed Prophet Muhammad’s (صلی اللہ علیہ وآلہ وسلم ) Shariat. They would have had no other alternative other than following and copying Prophet Muhammad (صلی اللہ علیہ وآلہ وسلم ) as this tradition of Sunan Darmi, Kitab ul Muqaddimah says ”Syeduna Jabir (May Allah be well pleased with him) relates that once 'Umar bin Khattab (May Allah be well pleased with him) brought to the presence of the Holy Prophet (صلی اللہ علیہ وآلہ وسلم ) a copy of the Torah and said, O Prophet of Allah, this is a copy of the Torah. The Prophet (صلی اللہ علیہ وآلہ وسلم ) held His peace. Hadhrat Umar (May Allah be well pleased with him) started reading. The Prophet’s blessed face changed color. Hadhrat Abu Bakr Siddiq (May Allah be well pleased with him) said, May the wailing women wail on you, O Umar, Can’t You see the blessed face of the Prophet (صلی اللہ علیہ وآلہ وسلم )?
When Hadhrat Umar (May Allah be well pleased with him) saw the holy face of the Prophet (صلی اللہ علیہ وآلہ وسلم ), he said, I seek Allah’s protection from His anger and from the anger of His Prophet (صلی اللہ علیہ وآلہ وسلم ). We are satisfied with the Allah as our Lord, with Islam as our religion and with Hadhrat Muhammad (صلی اللہ علیہ وآلہ وسلم ) as our Prophet. Then the Prophet of Allah said, By him who holds the life of Muhammad (صلی اللہ علیہ وآلہ وسلم ) in His hand, if Moosa (peace be upon him) comes in this age and you start following him and leave me then you certainly stray from the right path. If he (Moosa) was here and present in my time then he would certainly follow me."
Hadhrat Shaykh Ul Islam, the founder of Jamia Nizamia, Imam Muhammad Anwarullah Farooqui writes in the explanation of this Hadith, “Now everybody can understand when such a small act of a sincere Companion like Hadhrat 'Umar‘s (May Allah be well pleased with him) agitated the Prophet (صلی اللہ علیہ وآلہ وسلم ) to such an extent then what about the speech of some Zaid and Umar which shakes the very belief of the Termination of Prophethood? How much do you think it would agitate the Prophet? Will it be forgiven? No, Never. Almighty Allah says in the Holy Quran, "Lo! those who malign Allah and His messenger, Allah hath cursed them in the world and the hereafter, and hath prepared for them the doom of the disdained." Surah Ahzab, Verse-57. All this from Anwaar e Ahmadi, pg no 55.
Descent of Prophet Isa (alaihis salam) as a follower of Prophet Muhammad (صلی اللہ علیہ وآلہ وسلم )
The Holy Prophet (صلی اللہ علیہ وآلہ وسلم ) has mentioned among the signs of Qiyamah that Prophet Jesus will descend from the sky. He was a Prophet before the arrival of Prophet Muhammad (صلی اللہ علیہ وآلہ وسلم). But when he will come among the Ummah of Prophet Muhammad (صلی اللہ علیہ وآلہ وسلم ), he will be a follower and a Caliph as related in Durr Al Manthur in the Tafseer of Surah An-Nisa on the authority of Tabarani. The tradition is, "Verily, Isa bin Maryam, between him and Me there is no prophet whosoever and after me he will be My follower (ummati) and My Deputy and My Caliph."
The Prophet (صلی اللہ علیہ وآلہ وسلم ), with His divine foresight is seeing the troubles affecting the Ummah. That’s why the Prophet (صلی اللہ علیہ وآلہ وسلم ) clarified all doubts and cleared all uncertainties. He told Hadhrat Ali (May Allah be well pleased with him)” Are you not satisfied with that you be close to me the way Haroon (peace be upon him) was close to Prophet Moses (peace be upon him) but there is no Prophethood after me." Sahih Bukhari, Vol II Pg no.633 The Prophet (صلی اللہ علیہ وآلہ وسلم ) said about Prophet Moosa, “If Moosa were here then he would have no alternative other than following me. About Prophet Isa “After Me, he will be My follower and My Caliph and Deputy. " Tafseer Durr Al Manthur, Surah An Nisa.
It has been clearly established according to the most authentic Sources of Islam (nusus e qataeia) that after Prophet Muhammad (صلی اللہ علیہ وآلہ وسلم ) there is no prophet of any kind. Even after negating prophethood of all kinds after Prophet Muhammad (صلی اللہ علیہ وآلہ وسلم ), if someone splits prophethood into types and declares himself as "Zilli" or "Buroozi" prophet or "prophet-in-part", then that person is a liar and Dajjal. Those Muslims who believe in him and follow him are out of the fold of Islam and are defectors, apostates. They have no relation with Islam.
Qiyamah will not be established until about 30 Dajjal appear.
Prophet Muhammad (صلی اللہ علیہ وآلہ وسلم ) informed the Ummah about the troubles, unrests and about the liars, dajjals who will claim Prophethood. Accordingly in The Collection of Tirmidhi, a tradition runs as” In my Ummah 30 liars will be there. Each one of them will lay claim to Prophethood, even though there is no Prophet after Me." Jame' Tirmidhi Chapters of Trials. Also Sahih Bukhari, Kitaab ul Manaqib, baab alamaat e Nubuwwa fil Islam has a Tradition, " Qiyamah will not be established until about 30 Dajjals, liars appear and each one will claim that he is the prophet of Allah."
Figurative interpretations (Tawil) of the Qadianis about the Sealing of Prophethood. Answer by the Jurisprudents and Quranic Interpreters ( Fuqaha and Mufassirin)
The Master of this world and the next, Muhammad Mustafa (صلی اللہ علیہ وآلہ وسلم ) is the Seal of all the Prophets and the last among them. There is no Prophet of any kind after Him. No "absolute" prophet, no "prophet-in-part" and no "permanent" prophet. All kinds of Prophethood have been negated.
This is such a canonic matter and of such consensus that there is no question of any figurative interpretation or of any doubt of any kind. This article of Faith has been agreed upon by all Mufassirin, Muhaddithin, Mujtahidin, Aimma A’alam, and ‘Ulama of Islam. For want of space, the rulings of only some Elders are been written.
Madrik ut Tanzeel. In the explanation of the Verse of the Sealing of Prophethood, "There is no prophet after Prophet Muhammad (صلی اللہ علیہ وآلہ وسلم ). Prophet Isa (Peace be upon him) is a Prophet preceding Prophet Muhammad (صلی اللہ علیہ وآلہ وسلم ). But when he will descend on the earth, he will follow the Shariat of Prophet Muhammad (صلی اللہ علیہ وآلہ وسلم ), i.e. he will be a follower of our Prophet."
Allama Badruddin Aini (May Allah shower his mercy on him) writes in Umdatul Qari, Sharh ( Commentary on) Bukhari- "This is a bounty of Allah upon this Ummah that the Lord has completed the religion so that they don’t need any other religion nor any other prophet apart from our Prophet (صلی اللہ علیہ وآلہ وسلم ). That is why Allah Ta’ala has made Prophet Muhammad (صلی اللہ علیہ وآلہ وسلم ) as the Final Prophet and sent Him towards all mankind and genies. Imam Qazi Ayaaz (May Allah shower His Mercy on him) writes in Ash-Shifa. In the same way any person who claims that he receives revelations (Wahi) even though that person may not claim Prophethood, is an apostate (kafir) and he rejects Prophet Muhammad (صلی اللہ علیہ وآلہ وسلم ). Because Prophet Muhammad (صلی اللہ علیہ وآلہ وسلم ) has said that He is the Seal of the Prophets. After him there is no prophet. Prophet Muhammad (صلی اللہ علیہ وآلہ وسلم ) gave this news on behalf of Allah Ta’ala that He is the Final Prophet and has been sent towards all people and the ummah has agreed upon accepting the literal meaning of the words here. And has also agreed that, in this matter, there is no need for any other interpretation, explanation of any kind. So in the light of the Quran, Hadith and the consensus of the Ummah, there is no doubt that all such sects are apostates (kafir). Fatawa Alamgiri- Volume II, page 263” If anybody does not believe that Prophet Muhammad (صلی اللہ علیہ وآلہ وسلم ) is the Last and Final Prophet, that person is not a Muslim at all."
