By Hazrat Moulana Idris Kandhlawi (rahimahullah)
In a Hadith, dress has been compared to religion because the way the dress protects/safe guards the human beings, their identity and the dress is means for beauty, in the same way, the religion also protects the life here and hereafter, prepares one’s life and is identifying source. As soon as a baby is born, it is dressed up and as it grows up, the new dresses are required in line with its growth/age. And then a time comes when it enters into its youth and reaches peak in terms of abilities and strength, and at this stage the dress that decors it is most fitting and remains the same for ever and doest not necessitate any change. Similarly the mankind for its cultural development needed and were provided Shariah (code of law) and Prophet Muhammed ﷺ was sent as apostle at the time when the mankind reached fully developed cultural form (tamaddun). So the Shariat (Islamic code of law) that descended along with Prophet Muhammed ﷺ was with such glory that it remains until doomsday and mankind does not need any new Shariah (code of law). This fact has been informed by Qur’an in the following verse.
“Today, I have perfected your religion for you, and have completed My blessing upon you, and chosen Islam as Deen for you.”
This is a clear announcement that with Prophet Muhammed ﷺ, the chain of prophecies has been sealed and the mankind under the guidance of Shariah (Islamic code of law) of Prophet Muhammed ﷺ will do its journey until doomsday. Because the sealing of prophets is the collective consensus of whole Muslim nation (Ummah) and it is also accepted faith that after Prophet Muhammed ﷺ any one who claims prophethood and his followers are zindeeq (who promote infidelity as Islam and misguide others) and without doubt are out of Islam.
Unfortunately under the influence of British in India, Mirza Ghulam Ahmed Qadiyani had claimed false prophethood and his followers to cheat innocent Muslims say that Qadyanis are also “Muslims” and the way there are so many sects in Muslims, and there are trivial differences between the sects, similarly Qadiyani has just trivial differences. But this is mere cheating and mis-understanding because between Muslims and Qadyani, there is not just one or two differences or conflicts but all of the fundamental articles of faith are in conflict and differences.
In this connection, there is an important article titled “MIRZAIYAT KA USOOLI IKHTILAF” by renowned scholar of Islam and Muhaqqiq Hadhrat Maulana Mohammed Idris Kandhelvi (Rahimahullah), previous Sheikh-ut-tafseer (Master of Quranic Exegecis) Darul-uloom Deoband, Shaikul Hadith Jamia Ashrafia Lahore. Maulana Idris is one of the highly esteemed and distinguished scholars of Islam. The three works of Maulana, “Ma’riful Qur’an” in line of Tafseer (Quranic Exegesis), “At-Talluq As-sahih (arabi)” Sharah of Mishkat Shareef in line of Hadith and “Seerat-e-Mustafa” (three parts) are the most exemplary works left behind by him for the Muslim nation (Ummah). Narrations and belief were his two special aspects. He had regular writings on Islamic Belief/Creed and in all his writings the orational style is fully reflected. Due to this, Maulana Idris had a very important part in rejection of Qadiyaniyat and in this connection this booklet is a great work.
Hadhrat Maulana Kandhelvi (rahimahullah) was a great scholar and his writings were also scholaric and used to be in schoolic style. Now a days due to down-trend in Urdu language it has become very hard to explain to the new generation. Allah may bestow his blessings and rewards on my respected friend Maulana Mufti Ghayasuddin Saheb, who called upon Hadhrat Maulana Abdul Qavi Saheb to transform this booklet into easily understood language and Maulana Abdul Qavi Saheb has accomplished it with great beauty and responsibility. In fact the ease and style have made this writing doubly rewarding and scholars and Muslims in general both alike can benefit out of it. In this booklet, 10 fundamental conflicts in light of writings from Mirza himself have been discussed. If any person with intention of seeking truth, reads this, will surely and undoubtedly know and understand that Qadiyani beliefs is Kufr (infidelity) and it is not one of the sects of Muslims. But its treachery against Islam and an evil effort to take off the Prophethood from Muhammad ﷺ and crown himself (Mirza) with prophethood.
One of the aims of “Majlis-e-Tahaffuz Khatam-e-Nabawwat” Andhra Pradesh is also to publish most beneficial books on this subject of Rejecting Qadiyaniyat and ensure that these reach all the Muslims and this booklet is one of them as an humble effort.
Allah may reward Hadhrat Maulana Idris with Noor in his grave, also reward graciously Hadhrat Moulana Abdul Qavi and protect the whole Muslim nation (ummah) from this fitnah (religious chaos, tribulation, corruption and mischief and spreading of it), and reward us sinners to become the dust of the path of this blessed movement, so that on the Day of judgement along with our wrong doings we can present our humble efforts and have an excuse to gain Shafa’at (recommendation) of Prophet Muhammad ﷺ as we have no other ways and means of salvation except hoping for the mercy of Allah and hoping for Shafa’at of Prophet Muhammad ﷺ .

Islam is a whole and complete religion and it is Allah’s last Shariah (Islamic code of law). And Prophet Muhammad ﷺ is the last of all the Prophets and Apostles sent by Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta’ala. It is the collective consensus and faith of all the Muslims that after Prophet Mohammed ﷺ neither a Prophet comes nor a Holy Book will be sent, neither there is a need for it. Innumerable verses in Qur’an Karim and Hadith Saheeh have re-affirmed this faith and belief.
From the time of Prophet Mohammed ﷺ itself, some wretched and unblessed people have denied the last prophethoodness of Mohammed ﷺ and claimed themselves to be the prophets but all of them have been sent to their destiny.
Mirza Ghulam Ahmed Qadiyani is also one of those unfortunate and wretched people, who in the beginning to allure Muslims, called upon them to work for benefit of Islam and it was a deceit and then when he succeeded to some extent, he exposed his own purpose by claiming himself the guardian of Islam and then Mahdi and then Maseeh and finally claimed himself to be the prophet and the last of the prophets. Some ignorant Muslims who are not aware of true consensus or faith or belief, have been caught in this web. And this movement now has taken a shape of world wide fitnah. But the learned Ulamas right from the first day have been on watch out and have been taking care of their responsibility to safeguard the Khatm-e-Nabuwwat (end/seal of chain of prophethood) and Insha Allah continue to do so until the last nail is hammered into the coffin of this fitnah.
Hadhrat Moulana Idris Saheb Kandhelvi is a great scholar. He was a commentator of Qur’an and Shaikhul Hadith. He authored lot of religious knowledge books. He also made aware the Muslims of this “Fitnah Qadiyaniat” and warned to be on watch and he collected and compiled the quotes and faiths of Mirza Ghulam Ahmed Qadiyani from their own books which prove that Qadiyanis are not Muslims but they follow some other religion than Islam.
Meaning, the religion of Islam which Nabi Mohammed ﷺ brought to mankind, and which was accepted and followed by the Companions of Prophet Mohammed ﷺ, and companions’ followers, the Heads of all schools of thought, and Jurisprudence, experts and commentators of Quran, Muhaddithin, Scholars, Virtuous personalities and all Muslims is a different religion from that of which Qadiyanis are claiming and following. There is difference of skies and earth between the two religions.
This booklet was in old hard style language wise and scholaric. On the insistence of Hazrat Moulana Mufti Ghayasuddin sahib, I have taken up the task of re-writing this book in easy language so that all Muslims in general can easily benefit out of it.
Allah Subhanahu wa Ta’ala with His grace and generosity bestow acceptance of this book and protect all the Muslim nation (Ummah) from turning away from the right path and from going astray.

Many people are in a misunderstanding about Qadiyanis that “it is also a sect of islam, just they are having some conflict in some trivial and secondary affairs, which is also found in other Islamic sects.” That’s why they slink away from admitting that Qadiyanis are Murtad (infidels) and are non-Muslims.
However it is wrong to think that ‘Qadiyanat’ is one of Islamic sects. Such type of thought is due to lack of knowledge and awareness regarding the basic princples of Islam. It is very unfortunate that many Muslims don’t have the correct knowledge of islamic fundamentals.
It is an admitted fact that “each and every religion have its own principles and beliefs, which are the peculiar and distinctive features of that religion.” It means on the basis of these principles that religion is recognised and distinguished from other religions. Therefore Islam is also having some basic beliefs and laws. If any one sticks himself to these fundamentals and have conflict in other matters then such a conflict is called as a “trivial conflict” and such a person is still in Islam and he is named a Muslim. But if any one have conflict with these principles itself and had crossed their limits, then such a person is no more a Muslim, he will be treated as murtad (infidel) or non-Muslim. This type of basic conflict is found between the Muslims and Qadiyanis, therefore the Qadiyanis is infidels and is out of Islam. In this booklet this basic difference will be explained to some extent, so that the misunderstanding of Muslims may get away and the real matter may be known:
1. Qadiyanies themselves claim to have fundamental conflict with us:
It is not the only claim of Muslims that Qadiyanis are having basic and faith related conflict with Islam and Muslims, they themselves say that their conflict with Muslims is not trivial but it is fundamental. For example see the text of their book “Majmu’ah fatawah ahmediyah”
“It is completely wrong that there is some trivial conflict between we and non-Ahmedis (muslims). Because denying the one who has been appointed by Allah (i.e., one who is sent by Allah) is infidelity. Our position (Muslims) are atheists of Mirza saheb’s appointment (his prophesy). Now say how can this conflict will be a trivial one.” [Fatawa Ahmediyah p.274]
According to us the opposition of Qadiyanis with islam and Muslims is fundamental not trivial. And the Qadiyanis themselves also say the same. So by this it is known that Qadiyaniat and Islam both are different religions.
2. Religion also changes with the change of prophet:
Due to the change of prophet religion and tribe also changes. For example if anyone believes only in Esa (alayhissalaam) then he is a Christian and one who believes only in Musa (alayhissalaam) is called a Jew. He is not eligible to be named as a ‘Muslim’ or ‘Muhammadi’. In the same manner if any Christian or a Jew starts to believe in Hazrath Muhammed ﷺ and admits that he is the final Messenger then he is not mentioned as a Jew or Christian rather he is mentioned as a Muslim. Muslims believe that Hazrath Muhammed ﷺ is Allah’s Prophet and his final Messenger. Where as Qadiyanis admits Mirza Gulam Ahmed Qadiyani as their prophet. For example it is written in their book “Tatimmah haqeeqatul wahi”:
I swear by the god who is having my soul in his hands he had sent me and named me ‘nabi’ (prophet) [Haqeeqatul wahi p.no:28];
The true god is the one who had sent his prophet in Qadiyan [Daafeul-bala p.no:110].
So when we came to know that Qadiyani’s prophet is different, then the faith and religion of both are also different. Hence the followers of Mirza Gulam Ahmed Qadiyani can be mentioned as Mirza’i, Gulami or Qadiyani, but they can’t be mentioned as a Muslim.
3. The series of Prophets came to an end:
It is the basic and unanimously consented faith of all the muslims that Hadhrat Muhammed ﷺ is the final Prophet of Allah, and no Prophet will arrive after him till the doomsday. This is the faith of all the companions of Prophet, tabi’een and all the religious scholars of Muslim nation in the light of Qur’anic verse,
Muhammad is not The father of any Of your men, but (he is) The Apostle of God, And the Seal of the Prophets: And God has full knowledge Of all things. [Al-Ahzab: 40]
and various ahadith, And all had admitted unanimously that Hadhrat Muhammed ﷺ is the final Messenger and the series of Prophets came to an end at him. No new Prophet will arrive now. It is a fundamental and basic belief of Islam in which no islamic sect is having any type of conflict. (As far as the issue of Hadhrat ESA (alayhissalaam) he was a Prophet sent before our Prophet ﷺ, and in the same state he was raised to the sky, Whenever he will arrive, his arrival will be to issue the religion of our Prophet ﷺ, he will not arrive with a new prophethood, therefore there will be no effect of his arrival (in the end) on our Prophet ﷺ being the final Prophet.
Against the faith and belief of all Muslims the Qadiyanis believe that the chain of prophethood didn’t came to an end at Muhammed ﷺ. Gulam Ahmed Qadiyani’s claim that:
“How can you gain those favours without prophets and messengers? So as to make you reach the degree of faith and love the arrival of messengers occasionally is essential and through their intervention you will gain those favours.” [lecture siyaal Koot p.32]
“I am not any new messenger, many messengers came before me [Al-Hukum 10th April 1908]
our claim is that we are messengers and apostles” [Al-Hukum 5th March 1908].
In this way Gulam Ahmed Qadiyani makes his own different belief i.e., the continuity of the series of prophethood after our Prophet Muhammed ﷺ and establishes a false claim of his prophethood. And his followers admit Gulam Ahmed Qadiyani as their prophet next to Muhammed ﷺ and change the meaning of the Qur’anic verse which clearly mentions the end of prophethood so they give an inappropriate explanation of our unanimously consented belief in this way:
“Allah the almighty had endowed Hazrath Muhammed with a seal, means god had given him the seal which is not given to any other prophet in order to spread the excellencies. That’s why he was named as ‘khatamun nabiyyin” [Hashiyah Haqeeqatul Wahi p.97].
Through this and many other such explanations, Mirza and his followers want to say that the meaning of the word ‘Khatam’ is not ‘final’, but it means a stamp with which he puts seal and shows his nation that he is a prophet. Where as the whole Muslim nation besides Mirza’is unanimously agreed that Muhammed ﷺ is the final Prophet as it is explored in many Sahih Ahadith. So the first thing in Islam on which the whole nation unanimously convinced is ‘the person who claims to be a prophet after the era of Prophet Muhammad ﷺ is a liar, he must be killed. So in the life span of Muhammed ﷺ itself when a person called “Aswad an-Ansi” claimed to be a prophet, our Prophet Muhammed ﷺ asked one of his companions to kill him. So he was beheaded. Again Abu-Bakr Siddiq (Radhiyallahu anhu) dispatched a force under the leadership of Khalid bin Waleed (Radhiyallahu anhu) to kill Musaylimah (a big liar). So Musaylimah and his 28,000 followers were sent to hell. Similarly Talaha Asadi claimed to be a prophet, so Abu-Bakr (Radhiyallahu anhu) had given the order to kill him. So he was also killed. In the same way when a person named Haris claimed to be a prophet, Khalifah Marwaan killed him by the collective decision of the companions of Prophet ﷺ and the Tabi’een. In the time of Khaleefa Haroon Rasheed a person was killed according to court’s judgment for claiming to be a prophet. This shows that Hadhrat Muhammed ﷺ is the final Prophet according to Islam and Muslims. After him no new prophet will arrive. Who ever claims to be a prophet next to him will be a murtad (infidel) and who ever obeys him is also an infidel. It must be known that the punishment of infidelity in islam is to slay. Even in the religion of Qadiyanis also the punishment of the one who rejects their prophet or even a khalifah (successor) is to slay. That’s why Nooruddin qadiyani says:
“God made me the successor, neither I can be suspended through your words nor any one have the ability to suspend me, if you keep on forcing, then keep in mind I am having Khalid bin Waleeds (plural) whom will punish you like infidels” [Tasheed-ul-Azhaan vol 9 p.12].
4. Being Obedient to Muhammed ﷺ is enough for salvation:
All the Muslims had collectively admitted that to have faith in Hazarath Muhammed ﷺ and to follow him is sufficient for the success in the hereafter. But it is not enough in qadiyanies’ view. Moreover (it needs to have faith in mirzas prophethood) until a person didn’t have faith in his prophethood he is an eternal kafir (infidel) and deserves the hell. It is forbidden to marry him. It is not proper to join his funeral. Just go through:
“Whoever is having adversary with us is a Jew, Christian, idolator and hellish” [Tableeqh-e-Risalath 9 p.27]
“every one who received my invitation and didn’t accept me is not a Muslim”. [Haqeequtal-Wahi p.163].
“Infact our enemies became dogs of deserts and their women are worst than dogs.” [Durr-e- Mateen p.294]
“all those muslims who had not included themselves in the oath of allegance of maseeh mouood (the maseeh who was promised to sent in past) whether they had heard his name or not they are infidels and non-muslims” [Aaena-e-Sadaqat p.35].
It means crores of Muslims all over the world who don’t believe in the Qadiyani’s prophet are infidels, idolators and hellish in Qadiyanis view and only those people (Qadiyanis) are muslims. (we seek Allah’s protection).
5. Whose Qur’anic interpretation is actually reliable?
It is the firm belief of Muslims that only the Qur’anic interpretation of Muhammed ﷺ is actually reliable. In the Qur’an itself Muhammed ﷺ was mentioned as the interpreter of the Holy Qur’an. If his explanation is not found then the interpretation of his companions and Tabi’een (their followers) will be reliable. But Mirza and his followers say that only Mirza’s interpretation is reliable even though his explanation is against to Sahih ahadith and the whole ummah (Muslim nation).
See what he says:
“There is a big difference between we (me) and Muhammed because I always receive the aid and support of God” [Nuzool-ul- maseeh p.99].
“The foundation of my claim is quran and divine revelation which descended on me. Yes we present those ahadith as a support which are according to Quran and are not against to my divine revelation and we throw the other ahadith as waste scraps” [Tofah-e-goldviah, p.10]
Its clear that this conflict of Qadiyanis with Muslims is also fundamental and faith related (non trivial) which separates the Qadiyanis from Muslims and makes their religion a religion besides Islam.
6. Isn’t the Qur’an God’s final revelation…?
Muslims believe that Qur’an is the last book of Allah and believe that now Allah will never bring down any other revelation or book till the last day. But according to qadiyanies the claims of mirza are equivalent to Qur’an and to believe in them is as important as to believe in Qur’an. Reading the artificial and self prepared revelation of Mirza is also a form of worship as the recitation of Qur’an. The revelation of Mirza is also a miracle like Qur’an. Let us once go through their belief:
“The Diving Revelation Of God Descended on me to such an extent that if it is totally written it will not be less than 20 parts.” [Haqeeqatul-wahi p.91].
“The pleasure and faith obtained by quran, cannot be obtained through any other books. Similarly the pleasure and delight obtained by reading the revelations of maseeh mouood cannot be obtained by reading any other book. Hazrath Maseeh mouood is appointed to teach his revelations only to his clan. It is obligatory for ahmadian tribe to believe and act according to his revelations” [An-Nubuwatu fil- Islam p.no:28]
7. Is Jihad Forbidden in Islam…?
According to Islamic belief jihad is a form of worship and its command along with all its details will remain as long as Islam remains. Jihad’s mention, incitement and its laws are present in countless places of Quran and hadith. But Mirza’s claim is:
“the command of jihad is demolished with my appearance. It is absolutely forbidden especially to wage a war against british. So after my appearance there is no jihad with swords, a white flag of peace and freedom has been raised from our side. “Who wages a war is an enemy of God, one who believes in it is an atheist of prophet, now leave the thought of jihad oh! Friends, It is forbidden now to wage a war and fight for religion” [Arbaeen No:4 p.15].
“In time of maseeh mouood (Mirza Gulaam Ahmed) the command of jihad was absolutely demolished. Fighiting with infidels is forbidden for me.” [Khutba-e-ilhamiyah p.35].
“Helping the british government and erasing the thought of jihad’s wicked issue is a good thing” [Ijaaz-e-Ahmedi p.34].
8. Who is distinguished of all prophets Muhammed or Mirza…?
It is the firm belief of Islam and Muslims that the Prophets are the most prominent of all the humans, especially our Prophet ﷺ is the most distinguished of all Prophets. Any person (however virtueous he may be) is not equal to a Prophet. On contrary to this the belief of Mirza and Qadiyanis is “Mirza is not only prominent than all the prophets but he is also prominent than Mohammed”
“There is a lot of difference between Mohammed and us because I always receive the aid and support of God.” [Nuzool-ul-maseeh p.96].
“Leave the rememberance of mary’s son, Gulam Ahmed is better than him” [Daafe-ul-bala p.2]
“Mohammed has arrived again in us with advanced glory than what it was oh akmal. Those who wants to see Mohammed must go to qadiyan and see Gulam Ahmed”. [Paigaam-e-Sulah 24 March 1916].
Means Gulam Ahmed is claiming that he is (we seek Allah’s protection) the rebirth of Mohammed ﷺ and in his second birth he appeared with more advanced capabilities than before.
9. Do Qadiyanies have same beliefs as we have about Esa (alayhissalaam)..?
Hazrath Esa (alayhissalaam) is Allah’s Prophet with high determination and Qur’an had announced his chastity and his honor and mentioned his mother as siddiqah (the most faithful) and the chaste. All the Muslims have the same belief about him. But it is beyond our capability to explain what type of beliefs Mirza Gulam Ahmed is having about him and the way he percepts in his glory, because just its imagination also makes out hair erect. But to understand the beliefs of Qadiyanis see a few examples:
“If maseeh the son of Mary would have been in our age, then he will be unable to do those things which I can and he can’t show those miracles which are appearing from me.” [Haqeeqat-ul-wahi p.148]
“3 paternal and maternal grand mothers of maseeh were prostitutes. He was born with their blood”. [Zameemah Anjaam-e- aatham p.6]
“Also keep it in your mind that he (maseeh) is also having a little habit of lying.” [zameemah anjaam-e-aatham p.5].
10. Who was addressed in the following verses Mirza or Muhammed ﷺ..?
Moreover Mirza determines that the innumerable verses which were revealed in the eminence of Mohammed ﷺ are related to him where as the whole muslim nation unanimously agreed that these are related to Mohammed ﷺ.
Besides this Qadiyanis also believe that:
“The land of qadiyan is like mecca mukarammah and madeena munawarrah.” [Baraheen-e-ahmadiyah p. 557].
“The mosque of qadiyan is equal to Masjid-e-aqsa [Al-fazal 1915 p.6]
“Visiting qadiyan is equivalent to haj” [al-fazavol24, p.no: 64]
“Those who see Mirza are equivalent to the companions of prophet.” [Al-fazal vol 24,p. 64]
“The graveyard of qadiyan is better than all thegrave yards on the Earth.” [malfazath-e- ahmadiyah p.416].
But where as the Muslim beliefs are exactly opposite to it.
Any how these are some examples through whichwe want to prove infront of muslims that “Though the religion of Mirza and his followers is different from Islam, they claim to follow a religion parrel (equivalent) to Islam.” So they can’t be Muslims. Their claim of being Muslims is nothing but an attempt to deceive muslims.
Qadiyanis must have to come in open and say that their book, their prophet and their religion are different. They must give-up to present their false prophet, their false book and their false religion as Islam and actual Islam. And also Muslims should have to understand their (qadiyanis) false propaganda and their unsound and useless interpretations. They should reject them and stick to their real and true religion. Because neither they (qadiyanis) are Muslims nor they have any type of concern with Islam and its fundamental beliefs. May Allah the Almighty safeguard the faith and beliefs of muslims and keep away from all types of deception and fraud.
