Sunni turn to Lahore-Ahmadiyya beliefs again

Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad prophesied that Sunni Muslims will gradually accept the teachings and interpretations of the Ahmadiyya Movement. And by this we mean the Ahmadiyya Movement of Lahore.

Last year, when the British parliament held hearings in political Islam, all the Muslim organisations, including the Jamaat i Islami and Akhwan ul Muslameen hid their real beliefs and took refuge in our beliefs to save their skins. A few days ago the same thing happened at the British parliament’s hearings into the Muslim law of divorce.

The Sunnis turned to the Lahore-Ahmadiyya teaching again and again and again, denouncing their own beliefs and practices as being un-Islamic.The Truth of the Promised Messiah Prevails again.

What is the real difference between the Ahmadiyya Muslim sect and other Muslim sects?

The Lahore Ahmadiyya Movement thus proclaims the absolute finality of the prophethood of Muhammad and also states that anyone that claims to be a Muslim must be accepted as a Muslim. No authority as the right to expel another Muslim from the fold of Islam; otherwise that leads to an environment of hostility and hatred amongst Muslims and leads to extremely bad consequences.

 

With that said, the Lahore Ahmadiyya Movement also emphasizes certain teachings of Islam that have come to be ignored or forsaken

Fighting at meeting over status of Ahmadi

From The Guardian:

A scuffle broke out on Tuesday between the two at a gathering of Pakistan’s Council of Islamic Ideology (CII) when the chairman, Mohammad Khan Sherani, called on the group to consider whether Ahmadis, who are declared non-Muslims by the constitution, should be considered murtads that have rejected Islam.

A declaration of apostasy by the constitutional body charged with advising parliament on lawmaking would likely put Ahmadis in even greater peril, given that many interpretations of Islamic law prescribe death for people who quit the religion.

Tahir Ashrafi, a liberal-minded voice on the CII, strongly opposed any discussion of the incendiary issue, prompting a furious confrontation with Sherani, who is also an elected member of parliament.

I wonder which Islamic doctrine these Muslims were following when they embrioled themselves in violence, in their Parliament no less, whilst trying to discuss the matter of putting into the constitution harsher laws on the ‘non-Muslim’ status of both Ahmadi movements.

Perhaps these Muslim clerics are unaware than even calling another Muslim a ‘kafir’ is stricly prohibited in Islam, let alone passing laws to do so.

Interestingly The Guardian goes on to say:

Pakistan’s 5 million Ahmadis already face considerable persecution because of their belief that the movement’s founder, Mirza Ghulam Ahmad, was a messiah

For the sake of clarity it should be made clear that the Qadiani sect believe that Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad was a Prophet, and even go so far as to claim that if he was not then no Prophet has ever come to this World.

The Lahore Ahmadiyya Movement in Islam correctly assert that he was the Promised Messiah and that the Holy Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) was unequivocally the last Prophet.

World needs Lahori-Ahmadiyya thought to live in peace

This week we saw a program, broadcast in the UK on Channel 4, which showed the tragic story of a mother whose son embraced Islam and then misled by extremists went to Somalia to kill the non-believers. Four and a half years later he was killed when he and his companions tried to attack non-Muslims in Kenya.

We present an alternative narrative which shows that the Holy Quran’s command to conduct a jihad does not mean that a Muslim should go out and slaughter innocent non-Muslims. This is a reading of parts of the English translation of the Promised Messiah’s (as) book, “British Government and jihad”.

Sunnis turn to our interpretation of Islam and reform

For over one hundred years the Lahore Ahmadiyya have been saying that it is unlawful for a married man to simply say the word divorce three times consecutively to affect a divorce from his wife. Our Sunni brothers have consistently rejected our interpretation until a few days ago when the Pakistan Council for Islamic Ideology finally recommended that the ‘three in one’ divorce is invalid and attempts to use it can be classified as a criminal offence.

Last year the Pakistani religious courts threw out a case of rape because the only evidence to support the case was DNA. We gave a Khutba (Friday Sermon) to prove that the court was wrong. Now the Pakistani Senate has passed a law admitting DNA into evidence in these cases.

It may be happening very slowly but our Sunni brothers (whether they admit it or not) are turning to our interpretation of Islam as their guidance.

Saudi newspaper publishing Lahore Ahmadiyya research

Saudi_Gazette

The above photo is the recognition of the service and work of the Lahore Ahmadiyya Movement in the cause of Islam. This Saudi paper published research work by Hazrat Maulana Abdul Haque Vidyarthi, a scholar of comparative religions and world languages, to show that John’s prophecy in the New Testament regarding the coming a glorious prophet was fulfilled in the person of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (s).

Sadly, there was not recognition of the fact that the author was a Lahori Ahmadi Muslim. We ask this: If we are non-Muslims why is a Saudi paper using our research to prove the truth of Islam?

UK Broadcaster Takbeer TV fined for abusing minorities

Sunni Muslims always claim that Ahmadis are not persecuted in Pakistan. Here is an example of their bullying and abuse of the Ahmadi Muslims in the UK. On two programmes aired by Takbeer TV our members were subjected to insults and bullying in violation of broadcasting rules as given in this news item.

UK broadcaster Takbeer TV has been fined £25,000 for airing material that subjected members of the Ahmadi community and their beliefs to abusive treatment in June/July last year.
The channel, which targets the Sunni Muslim community in the UK and internationally, was found in breach of Rules 4.1 and 4.2 in the Ofcom Broadcasting Code.

As quoted from the Media247.co.uk website the breach by Takbeer was proved and it was fined £25,000. Takbeer TV believes that their views reflect Islamic teaching and that it is every Muslims duty to conduct a jihad against suppression of Islamic teaching. We hope that Takbeer TV will now conduct a jihad against Ofcom’s ruling and as a first step we invite them to repeat the shows in full.
