Are Ahmadi non-muslims?
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:
hello sir, it was nice to get an informative mail from u. i am here with a question that is a natural issue. My question is related to my friend. He is Ahamdi. I use to listen tht qadianee and ahamdee have different Kalima. different thoughts beside islam they are against the holly prophet(pbuh). and so so.
but believe me i could not find anything different in him, his views, his family..even his younger sister she is only of 5 years old, recite same kalima as we ppl do. everthing is same to us. Okie i think that they recite kalima to impress us. but a little child a follower and new ppl which are ingulfing and entering in their sectors are not children. how can u follow tht thing which was sell by saying different quality but when u buy it., the seller describe tht no, it has different quality. r u getting me na. but the thing which is retarding me is that why we r against them , why we think tht they r non muslim. even we know tht if we want to define muslim in only one sentence then ....the man who accept kalima and never put any addition or reduction in it. u can revive the incident of a Sahabi(raa) when in a battle he defeated a kafir and when he tried to kill him the kaafir recited kalima, but tht Sahabi(ra) killed him, but holy Prophet (pbuh) did not like it. u rem it...okie if still we think tht they are non muslim, whts abt shiah ..they have even different kalima...okie...these r the things which my friend ask me and i could not give answer for it....now i am realy inspired by them and haan...they have only one thing different ..tht they believed tht hazrat Eisa (as)has been died. and they prove it from Quran..okie....now advise me and tell me abt the fact. i m keenly waiting for ur reply okie.. AH a worried muslim Ann as...

Are Ahmadi non-muslims?
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.
The main area of dispute with the Qaadhianis is that they consider Mirza Ghulam Ahmad as the appointed Prophet of Allah, whereas Allah has explicitly declared in the Holy Quran that Prophet Mohamed (saws) is the Last and the Seal of the Prophets.
Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 33 Surah Ahzaab verse 40:Mohamed is not the father of any of your men, but he is the Messenger of Allah and the Last of the Prophets. And Allah is the Knower of everything.
There are several authentic narrations of the Prophet Mohamed (saws), whereby he has explicitly declared that there is no Prophet coming after him; thus anyone who claims to be a Prophet after Prophet Mohamed (saws) will not be accepted by the muslims. There are several other issues, but this is the absolute major area of dispute.
Therefore, those who believe that there is a Prophet after the Last Messenger of Allah, Prophet Mohamed (saws), automatically leave the fold of Islam. If you ask your Ahmadi friend, what he thinks of the other muslims, who declare the ‘kalima’ and believe in Prophet Mohamed (saws) as the Last and Final Messenger, he will reply that they have left the fold of believers and are ‘kaafirs’, because they have refused to believe in Mirza Ghulam Ahmad as their Prophet!
There are many muslims who declare the ‘kalima’, but are heavily involved in the heinous crime of ‘shirk’; or there are many muslims who declare the ‘kalima’, but refuse to obey anything from Allah and His Messenger (saws). They are muslims simply because they were born into muslim households. We are not aware of what is in their hearts, thus they will legally be muslims and thus receive all the rights that are due to any muslim. They will get the right of inheritance, they can marry among the believers, they will buried in muslim cemeteries, etc. But in the court of Allah, those muslims who commit ‘shirk’ and ‘kufr’ will be treated exactly as the mushriks and the kaafirs of this world, for Allah is indeed aware of what is in their hearts. But if one openly declares that he does not believe in Allah as is Lord and Creator, or that there is another Prophet after Prophet Mohamed (saws), he will leave the fold of Islam, even in this world, and his accounting in the Court of Allah will be severe.
Your Statement: They have only one thing different ..tht they believed tht hazrat Eisa (as)has been died. and they prove it from Quran.
Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 4 Surah Nisaa verses 156-158:Then they (the Jews) went so far in their unbelief that they uttered a monstrous calumny against Mary (that she was an unchaste woman!). They themselves bragged: “We have slain Jesus son of Mary, a Messenger of Allah!” Whereas, in fact, they did not slay him, nor did they crucify him; but the matter was made dubious for them. And those who have differed about this matter, are also in doubt concerning it. They have no knowledge of it, but they follow mere conjectures, for it is certain that they did not kill Jesus. Nay, the fact is that Allah had raised him to Himself, for Allah is indeed All-Powerful, All-Wise.
The aayahs that we have quoted above are from the Holy Quran as revealed to the Last Messenger of Allah, Mohamed ar-Rasool Allah (saws). The aayahs are so clear, that they leave no room for any other sort of interpretation. Allah declares clearly that they neither slayed Jesus, nor did they crucify him; but rather Allah raised Jesus unto Himself. Thus there is no way for anyone to prove from the Holy Quran that Jesus was killed, unless of course they twist and turn the words of the Holy Quran to suit their way of belief.
The believers are commanded to follow the guidance of the Holy Quran; not to make the Quran follow their beliefs!
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah’s Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
