Beware of Pretenders
All Praise is due to
the Lord of the universe, Who commissioned Prophet
as a great reformer for the wellbeing of the worlds. The believers, who are
knowledgeable of the authentic teachings of Islam and conduct their lives
accordingly, will be successful both in this world and in the hereafter.
In Islam, Allah(SWT) has completed
and perfected His religion, established a lasting Guidance, and fulfilled
His promise to mankind. Thus,
Muhammad(SAW) is the last Prophet
to be elected - there will be no new Prophet or Messenger after him and no
new revelation after the Holy
According to well established Islamic principles, anyone who claims to be
a new Prophet after
Muhammad(SAW) should be rejected
as an impostor. This is due to the fact that Prophet
Muhammad(SAW) has emphatically stated
to be the last Prophet and has forewarned the believers about the appearance
of impostor Prophets.
Shortly after the death of Prophet
Muhammad(SAW), Sayyidina Abu
in agreement with the other learned
declared war against the imposter Prophet Musylema Kazzab and put
an end to his evil scheme. In the subsequent centuries, other false claimants
also appeared, but their movements were quickly quelled by devote believers,
eager to keep the religion of humanity pure from corruption.
As long as the Muslims remained in power, no claimant to Prophethood was
ever tolerated or allowed to find a following among the unlearned. However,
after the decline of the Muslim
khilafat, the colonial
forces, who had usurped power, lent their support to false Prophets and conspired
with such movements to erode the Muslim identity and create confusion among
future generation of believers.
Among the false claimants who appeared during this period, the most infamous
are, Mirza Ghulam Ahmed Qadiani of Punjab (the founder of Ahmadi/Qadiani
movement), Muhammad Ali and Ali Hussain of Iran (the founders of Babi and
Bahai movements), and Elijah Muhammad of USA (the founder of the Nation of
Islam). Even today, their unfortunate followers are actively engaged in
propagating the baseless and erroneous ideas of their founders around the
Qadianism was a stepchild of the British Empire and, since its rejection
by the Muslims of Pakistan, has relocated its headquarters to London, England.
It is from that location, and its other central bases of operations in Israel,
United States, and Canada, that Qadiani missionaries are spreading their
false doctrine on Islam via missionary workers, satellite programs, and
publications. They often present forged
Muslim scholars, and rely on baseless and deceptive conjecture of selected
verses of the Holy Quran to misguide the naive and entrap the non-Muslims
in the name of Islam.
Under these circumstances, the most effective remedy for eradicating the
falsehood of Qadianism is to create awareness about the well-established
doctrine of the Finality of Prophethood and deceptive arguments of the Qadiani
missionaries. It is also imperative that every false notion raised by the
Qadiani leadership, on the finality of Prophet
Muhammad(SAW) and other Islamic
ideology, be tackled by logical and scholarly replies.
All Muslim brothers and sisters are invited to extend their full cooperation
towards this worthy cause and help save as many individuals as possible from
the evil of such misguided movements.
Let there arise among you those who invite to good, enjoin what is right,
and forbid what is evil: They are the ones to attain felicity.
(Holy Quran, Al-i'Imran, 3.104)
