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:
Assalamu-alaikum Bro. Burhan,
I would like you to browse through this link and the regime's website; will appreciate if it is possible to briefly comment if the followers
can be regarded followers of Islam. Pray Allah Subhanahu wa Taala guide us all to the right path ameen.

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.
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 Seal (Last) of the Prophets. And Allah is the knower of everything.
The Messenger of Allah (saws) has said in many authentic narrations: There is no Prophet after me.
Allah and His Messenger (saws) have clearly declared that Mohamed (saws) is the Last Prophet and there are no Prophets after him. Neither will there be any Revelations revealed to anybody else after Prophet Mohamed (saws).
Thus, one who testifies that there is no god except Allah Alone, and Mohamed (saws) is His Final Messenger; will be considered a muslim.
Anyone who believes that there is a another Prophet after Prophet Mohamed (saws) who was appointed by Allah, and he received Revelations; he will not be considered a muslim. It does matter what name he keeps or what he does, because of his belief that there is another Prophet after Prophet Mohamed (saws), he leaves the fold of Islam.
The Ahmadis are not recognized as muslims because they believe that Mirza Ghulam Ahmed is a prophet and that he received revelations from Allah.
If we were to give a detailed explanation of their fantastic philosophies, it would indeed require a book. Many eminent and worthy scholars of Islam have written books about the Ahmadi menace and issues, and it would be worthwhile to read some of those to gain an in-depth knowledge of their philosophies and false beliefs, if one indeed wants to understand the Ahmadi issue.
May Allah help the muslims to unite as One Ummah.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
Your brother and well wisher in Islam,
