Mu' meneen Brothers and Sisters,

As Salaam Aleikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh.  (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)

 

One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:

Dear Brother,

Asalaam-O-Alikum,

Are the Qadiyanies (Ahmadiyas) regarded as Muslims, since they consider themselves to be Muslims?What makes their deviations worse than the deviations of bohras?

Answer:

 

Difference Ahmadi and Bohra

In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is no one (no idol, no person,  no grave, no prophet,  no imam,  no dai,  nobody!) worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.

 

Your Question: Are the Qadiyanies (Ahmadiyas) regarded as Muslims, since they consider themselves to be Muslims?

The Qadiyanies (Ahmadis) declare their belief in the advent of another prophet after the death of the Last and Final Messenger of Allah, Mohamed ar-Rasool Allah (saws),  and believe that this person, Ghulam Ahmad Qadiyani, received revelations from Allah Subhanah.  Their declaration of this belief makes them apostates and they cannot be and are not considered as ‘muslims’ by law.  The Qadiyanies will be considered as non-muslims and disbelievers and all the restrictions that apply to an unbeliever will apply to them: their ‘zabihaa’ will not be considered halaal for the believers, they will not inherit the believers nor will the believers inherit them, they cannot marry among the believers, they will not be permitted to visit the Sacred House, they will not be given a muslim burial, etc.

 

Your Question: What makes their deviations worse than the deviations of bohras?

Although some misguided sects in Islam like the Ismailies or the Bohras believe and commit manifest acts of ‘shirk’, they declare and believe in the Oneness of Allah Subhanah, they declare belief in all the Prophets, they declare belief that Prophet Mohamed (saws) was the Last and Final Messenger of Allah, they declare belief in all the Revelations of Allah, they declare belief in the Glorious Quran as the Last and Final Revelation, they declare belief in all the Angels of Allah, they declare belief in the concept of the Hereafter, and they declare belief in the Divine ‘Qadr’ or Destiny. 

 

Because these sects do not violate or declare disbelief in any of the six conditions of ‘emaan’ or faith in their declaration, they will legally be considered as ‘muslims’ in the sight of Shariah and the believers in the life of this world, and all the rights that are due to a believer will be accorded to them in full.

 

It is only on the Day of Judgment that Allah Subhanah will Judge them regarding their intentions and their actions, and if they are Judged by the Lord as having committed ‘shirk’ with Him, they will be condemned to the exact same punishment as meted out to the ‘mushriks’.   But because they profess belief in the Oneness of Allah and His Last and Final Messenger (saws), they will be considered ‘legal’ muslims in the sight of Shariah and the believers in the life of this world, and every single right which is due to a muslim will be accorded to them in full.  It is only on the Day of Judgment when Allah will hold them severely accountable for their abominations of ‘shirk’.

 

Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 5 Surah Maidah verse 72:

Whoever commits ‘shirk’ (invoking anything with Allah),  Allah shall forbid for him Paradise,  and Hell shall be his abode.  And for such wrong doers there will be no one to help.

 

Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah’s Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone.  Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.

 

Your brother and well wisher in Islam,

 

Burhan
