Ahmadis or Qadiyanis - Comprehensive Description


Qaidiyanis (who call themselves Ahmadis), are group of people who originated in India and spread to Pakistan and other countries. While the Quran and Hadith clearly states, that Hadhrat Mohammad PBUH was the seal of the prophets, the Qadiyanis, reject this and claim their founder was also a prophet.

Consider this survey of the status of Qadiyanis in some of the Muslim countries:


In the early 20th Century Qadiyanis were persecuted and some were sentenced to death for apostasy. By circa 1930 there were reportedly no more Qadiyanis in Afghanistan.


In 2008 the president of Indonesia signed a decree ordering the Qadiyanis to stop practicing their version of Islam. Qadiyanis have been killed and their mosques have been attacked.


In 2014 the Supreme Court of Kyrgyzstan upheld a 2011 decision that prohibited Qadiyanis from registering with the state as a religion and from gathering for religious activity. They are not recognized as Muslims.


In 1975 the Selangor Fatwa Council issued a fatwa declaring that the Qadiyanis were non-Muslims. The fatwa called for them to repent; if they failed to do so they should be put to death. This was repeated in 1998, when the Selangor Fatwa Council again ruled that Qadiyanis were non-believers, and that any individual that followed the Qadiyani teachings was an apostate. Selangor is the most populated and prosperous state in Malaysia.
Qadiyanis have been arrested for the crime of offering Friday prayers.


This was the first country to declare that the Qadiyanis were non-Muslims; this occurred in the 1930′s.


In 1947, the Qadiyani Community moved its religious headquarters from Qadian in India to Rabwah in Pakistan. But within a few years Sunni Muslim groups came together to form an anti-Qadiyani movement. In 1974, under pressure from Muslim clerics, Pakistan's first elected Prime Minister, Zulfikar Ali Bhutto, introduced a constitutional amendment (known as the Second Amendment) which declared the Qadiyanis to be non-Muslims.

In 1984 the Pakistani government added Section 298 to the penal code. This section is commonly referred to as the anti-Qadiyani laws, and it prohibits the Qadiyanis from, among other things:

Calling themselves Muslims or posing as Muslims.
Referring to their faith as Islam.
Preaching or propagating their faith.
Insulting the religious feelings of Muslims.
Referring to their places of worship as mosques.
Sounding the call to prayer.
Qadiyanis can be arrested for “posing as a Muslim” by, for example, reciting verses from the Qur'an.

Saudi Arabia

In 1997, Sheikh Ali Bin Abdur Rahman Al Huzaifi, Chief Imam of Al-Masjid an-Nabawi (the Prophet’s Mosque) in Madinah, condemned Qadiyanis as “traitors…misleading others by their self-made and false Quranic commentary.”

Saudi textbooks teach that Qadiyanis are not Muslims, and Qadiyanis can be arrested and prosecuted solely because of their religion. The focus of such arrests is largely on foreign national workers brought into Saudi Arabia, although some Saudi nationals have been arrested for becoming Qadiyani. Hajj is the pilgrimage to Makkah that Muslims are required to take once in their life if they are able. The Saudi government has officially banned Qadiyanis from making the Hajj, but some Qadiyanis do so anyway (obviously without declaring their religious affiliation).

In addition to Muslim countries, there are many Muslim organizations and scholars that have declared that members of the Qadiyani Community are not Muslims, e.g.:

Al-Azhar University Fatwa Department, Cairo, Egypt
Assembly of Muslim Jurists of America
Dr. Muzammil Siddiqi, former President of the Islamic Society of North America
Imam Alhaji Abdoulie Fatty, The Gambia
Imam W. Deen Muhammad, United States
Islamic Community of the Bosniaks in the U.S.
Islamic Fiqh Academy, Egypt
Islamic Fiqh Council, South Africa
Mufti Ebrahim Desai, South Africa
Mullah Bashir Rahim, Great Britain
Mullah Tahir ul Qadri, Canada
Muslim World League Islamic Fiqh Academy
Organisation of Islamic Cooperation Islamic Fiqh Academy
Permanent Board for Inquiry and Fatwa, Saudi Arabia
Shariah Council, United Kingdom
Sheikh Ahmed Deedat, South Africa
Sheikh Ahmed Kutty, Islamic Institute of Toronto, Ontario, Canada
Sheikh Hamza Yusuf, Founder of Zaytuna College, Berkeley, California
Sheikh Muhammed Salih Al-Munajjid, Saudi Arabia


The Qadiyani Community is a small, fringe group that is widely rejected by the world’s Sunni Muslim community. Muslim countries, and Muslim organizations and scholars around the world do not consider the Qadiyanis to even be Muslims. Consequently, news stations are doing themselves and their viewers a tremendous disservice by allowing Qadiyanis to “speak for Islam.” If we want to be called Muslims, then we need to be very clear that Qadiyanis are not Muslims even if we cannot hurt or kill them.
