BE AWARE OF QADIANIS' MISINTERPRETATION OF QURAN
Deception by Any other Name
The heirs of Mirza Ghulam Qadiani's fortune are attempting to mislead the humanity by
using the name, teachings, and images of
The Qadiani leadership's selection of the name "Ahmadiyya" for their
cult represents their first attempt at deception. They do not mention the
reason behind their insistence to be called "The Ahmadiyya Movement in
Islam": It is simply an attempt at deception on their part.
Muslims know that Ahmad
is one of the names of the last prophet of
of Arabia. Mirza Qadiani’s parents named him Ghulam-Ahmad, which means
the Slave of Ahmad. Apparently, his parents were following a very
common practice by naming their son after the last
Mirza’s complete name was Mirza Ghulam Ahmad Qadiani.
According to the Indian tradition, the followers of Mirza Qadiani are expected
to call themselves Mirzais or Qadianis to indicate a closeness
to their leader. Obviously, their selection of the middle name of their spiritual
leader is against the norm and is intended to somehow associate the ideas
of the Mirza with the name of our beloved Prophet,
The heirs of Mirza Qadiani justify their claim by referring to a cunning
alteration of the meaning of the Holy
Quran. In his interpretation,
Mirza Qadiani claimed that the verse "Whose name shall be Ahmad" [The
Holy Quran, As-Saff 61:6] -- foretelling the arrival of Prophet
actually refers to him! In fact, taking advantage of his middle name, Mirza
Ghulam and his followers have twisted the meaning of the Holy Quran and claimed
prophethood for their leader.
Muslims everywhere are reminded to call the followers of Mirza Qadiani solely
as "Qadianis". The use of the name "Ahmadi" founded
on deception and misrepresentation of the Holy Quran is injustice to Islam
and following a false prophet is forbidden
(Haraam) upon the believers.
