Dear br. Aziz, have we not already seen the proof, from our Idaras
posting, as well as Dr. Balogun's book, that the "evidence" commonly used
by Qadiani leaders and missionaries to attack the Finality of Prophethood
is based on deceptive methods and arguments?

I readily admit that, in every misguided movement, there are two
categories of individuals:

  1. Those who have invented and propagate such deceptive arguments 
      to misguide the naive and the uninformed away from the path of 
      Allah(SWT) and to their own selfish purpose.  While they claim to 
      be inviting people to Allah(SWT), they are really running a business
      that they and their collaborators are reaping the benefit of.  They
      are no more than ravenous wolves in sheepskin clothing.

      This, naturally, is not limited to Islam and Muslims.  In fact, in
      recent years we have seen several internationally recognized
      Christian evangelists, with 24 hours international TV programs and
      tens of millions of devote followers, be deposed by law enforcement
      officials for their abuse of public funds or other unbecoming acts.

      Alhamdolellah, the Prophet(SAW) has already warned the true 
      believers in:

         "In the latter days there will come forth men who will deceive
          the world by religion, clothed before men in sheepskin because
          of gentleness, their tongues sweeter than sugar, and their hearts
          the hearts of wolves."    (Tirmidhi)

         "In the latter days there will be impostors, liars, who will
          come to you with stories which you have never heard, neither
          you nor your forefathers. Beware then, beware! Let them not
          lead you astray, nor let them put you into trouble."
               (Sahih Muslim)

      This is all a true believer needs to save himself and his family
      from eternal punishment.

  2. Those who have been either misguided by the falsehood of the first 
      group, or have been born in that Mission and are simply following
      the Movement because of blind loyalty to the faith of their parents
      (who had been themselves mislead), love of their family, friends, and 
      associates who are part of that Movement, or sense of camaraderie
      which the members of every club and organization are similarly 
      endowed with.

      The fact that many of these people are sincere to their movement and
      their cause, should not be mistaken for the truthfulness of their
      Mission.  After all, many Christians, Jews, Hindus, and followers of
      every modern cult are similarly devoted and sincere in their faith.
      Their fault rests in the fact that they have placed their trust in
      the hands of some opportunists.

      However, dear Aziz, is this any different than the position the
      pagans of Arabia were in?  Where they not sincerely in love with
      the faith of their fathers?

      The evidence shows that, when the truth was revealed and they
      discovered the mistake of their ways, some submitted in humility 
      and preferred Allah and the hereafter to the way of life they had
      been leading; but, other more unfortunate individuals resisted the
      At great length, those who resist the truth will only manage to be
      untrue to their own soul, as they can not claim to have been
      ignorant of divine guidance.  Those unfortunate people who knowingly
      prefer their own way of life to the decrees of Allah(SWT) and His 
      Last Messenger(SAW) are admitting to be among the unbelievers.

On the Day of Judgment, both the groups of individuals mentioned before
will meet the same tragic end, since Allah(SWT)s promise is true:

       "Verily Allah has cursed the Unbelievers and prepared for them a 
        Blazing Fire,-
        To dwell therein for ever: no protector will they find, nor
        The Day that their faces will be turned upside down in the Fire,
        they will say: Woe to us! Would that we had obeyed Allah and
        obeyed the Messenger!"
        And they would say: "Our Lord! We obeyed our chiefs and our 
        great ones, and they misled us as to the (right) Path.
        "Our Lord! Give them double Penalty and curse them with a very 
        great Curse!"
            (Holy Quran, Al-Ahzab , 33.64-68, Yusuf Ali Translation)

      "Who is more unjust than one who invents a lie against Allah or 
       rejects His Signs? For such, their portion appointed must reach
       them from the Book (of decrees): until, when our messengers 
       (of death) arrive and take their souls, they say: "Where are the
       things that ye used to invoke besides Allah?" They will reply, 
      "They have left us in the lurch," And they will bear witness 
       against themselves, that they had rejected Allah.  
       He will say: "Enter ye in the company of the peoples who passed
       away before you - men and jinns, - into the Fire." Every time a 
       new people enters, it curses its sister-people (that went before),
       until they follow each other, all into the Fire. Saith the last
       about the first: "Our Lord! it is these that misled us: so give
       them a double penalty in the Fire."
       He will say: "Doubled for all" : but this ye do not understand.
       Then the first will say to the last: "See then! No advantage have
       ye over us; so taste ye of the penalty for all that ye did !"
       To those who reject Our signs and treat them with arrogance, no
       opening will there be of the gates of heaven, nor will they enter 
       the garden, until the camel can pass through the eye of the needle:
       Such is Our reward for those in sin.  For them there is Hell, as a 
       couch (below) and folds and folds of covering above: such is Our
       requital of those who do wrong.
       (Holy Quran, Al-Araf, 7.37-41, Yusuf Ali Translation)

May Allah(SWT) guided sincere seekers of Truth to His path of Light
and Salvation.
