Kindly elaborate the differences between Qadianis and 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:
Dear Brother Burhan,
Kindly elaborate the differences between Qadianis and muslims. Also please provide answers to their arrgumnets regarding Hazrat Issa , end of prophet hood.
(There may be some grammatical and spelling errors in the above statement. The forum does not change anything from questions, comments and statements received from our readers for circulation in confidentiality.)
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.
Q-1: Kindly elaborate the differences between Qadianis and muslims.
Although there are many differences between the beliefs and practices between the Muslims and the Ahmadis, the two absolute stark differences which stand out clearly and differentiate the Ahmadis from the Muslim Ummah are:
- The Ahmadis dont believe in Prophet Mohamed (saws) being the Last and Final Messenger of Allah Subhanah; they believe that their founder Ghulam Ahmad Qadhiani was also a Prophet of Allah.
- The Ahmadis dont believe in the Glorious Quran as the Last and Final Book of Revelation of the Lord Most High; they believe that their founder Ghulam Ahmad also received Revelations from Allah.
Q-2: Also please provide answers to their arrgumnets regarding Hazrat Issa.
Dear and Beloved Brother in Islam, regarding all the advents of events of the past, present, and the future, the true believers believe with absolute certainty only in what is said by Allah Subhanah in His Glorious Quran, and what is recorded in the authentic narrations of the Messenger of Allah (saws).
The truth is that the Quran is silent on the second coming of Jesus Christ to earth, although there are several pointers; but Prophet Mohamed (saws) has stated clearly in several narrations that the end of time will not come until Jesus Christ (a.s.) returns back to earth and establishes the Kingdom of God on earth; and that is the belief of every true Muslim.
below is one of the clear pointers where first Allah declares that the Jews did
not crucify Jesus (a.s.), nor did they
kill him; but the matter was made dubious to them. And then He declares in verse 159 that there
will be none among the People of the Book (the Jews and the Christians) who
must believe in Jesus Christ (a.s.) before his death; clearly confirming that Jesus Christ (a.s.) will
come to earth, establish the
Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 5 Surah Maidah verses 158-159:
157 That they (The Jews) said (in boast) "We killed Christ Jesus, the son of Mary, the Messenger of Allah"; but they killed him not, nor crucified him, but so it was made to appear to them and those who differ therein are full of doubts with no (certain) knowledge, but only conjecture to follow. For of a surety they killed him not.
158 Nay! Allah raised him (Jesus Christ) up unto Himself; and Allah is Exalted in Power Wise.
159 And there is none of the People of the Book, but must believe in him (Jesus) before his death; and on the Day of Judgment He will be a witness against them.
Sahih Al-Bukhari Hadith 4.657 Narrated by Abu Huraira
The Messenger of Allah (saws) said, "By Him (Allah) in Whose Hands my soul is, surely (Jesus,) the son of Mary will soon descend amongst you, and will judge mankind justly (as a Just Ruler); he will break the Cross, and kill the pigs, and there will be no Jizya (i.e. taxation taken from non-Muslims). Money will be in abundance so that nobody will accept it, and a single prostration to Allah (in prayer) will be better than the whole world and whatever is in it." Abu Huraira added "If you wish, you can recite (this verse of the Holy Book): 'And there is none Of the people of the Scriptures (Jews and Christians) But must believe in him (i.e Jesus as a Messenger of Allah and a human being) before his death. And on the Day of Judgment He will be a witness Against them." (4.159)
Sahih Muslim Hadith 6931 Narrated by Hudhayfah ibn Usayd Ghifari
The Messenger of Allah (saws) came to us all of a sudden as we were (busy in a discussion). He (saws) said: What do you discuss about? (The Companions) said: We are discussing about the Last Hour. Thereupon he (saws) said: It will not come until you see ten signs before and (in this connection), he (saws) made a mention of the smoke, Dajjal (The anti-Christ), the beast, the rising of the sun from the west, the descent of Jesus son of Mary (Allah be pleased with him), The Gog and Magog, and landslides in three places, one in the east, one in the west, and one in Arabia at the end of which a fire would burn forth from the Yemen, and would drive people to the place of their assembly.
Sahih Al-Bukhari Hadith 4.658 Narrated by Abu Huraira
The Messenger of Allah (saws) said: "How will you be when the son of Mary (i.e. Jesus) descends amongst you, and he will judge people by the Law of the Qur'an, and not by the law of Gospel
Sunan of Abu-Dawood Hadith 4310 Narrated by Abu Hurayrah
The Prophet (saws) said: There is no prophet between me and him, that is, Jesus (peace be upon him). He will descent (to the earth). When you see him, recognise him: a man of medium height, reddish fair, wearing two light yellow garments, looking as if drops were falling down from his head though it will not be wet. He will fight the people for the cause of Islam. He will break the cross, kill swine, and abolish Jizyah. Allah will perish all religions except Islam. He will destroy the Antichrist, and will live on the earth for forty years, and then he will die. The Muslims will pray over him.
Sahih Muslim Hadith 6924 Narrated by Abu Hurayrah
The Messenger of
Allah (saws) said: The Last Hour will
not come until the Romans land at al-A'maq or in Dabiq. An army consisting of the best (soldiers) of
the people on Earth at that time will come from
Sahih Muslim Hadith 7023 Narrated by Abdullah ibn Amr
The Messenger of Allah (saws) said: The Dajjal (anti-Christ) will appear in my Ummah and he will stay (in the world) for forty--I cannot say whether he meant forty days, forty months or forty years. Allah will then send Jesus, son of Mary, who will resemble Urwah ibn Mas'ud. He (Jesus Christ) will chase him and kill him.
It has also been
reported in authentic narrations of the Prophet (saws) that he said that his
brother and Prophet, Jesus Christ son of
Mary, will die and be buried next to his
Q-3: end of prophet hood.
In light of the Glorious Quran and various narrations of the Prophet Mohamed (saws), there is absolutely no doubt that Prophet Mohamed (saws) was the Last and Final Messenger of Allah (saws).
Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 33 Surah Ahzaab verse 40:
Muhammad is not the father of any of your men but (he is) the Messenger of Allah, and the Seal of the Prophets: and Allah has full knowledge of all things.
Sahih Al-Bukhari Hadith 4.661 Narrated by Abu Huraira
The Prophet (saws) said, "The Israelis used to be ruled and guided by prophets: Whenever a prophet died, another would take over his place. There will be no prophet after me, but there will be Caliphs who will increase in number."
Sahih Al-Bukhari Hadith 4.735 Narrated by Abu Huraira
The Messenger of Allah (saws) said, "My similitude in comparison with the other prophets before me, is that of a man who has built a house nicely and beautifully, except for a place of one brick in a corner. The people go about it and wonder at its beauty, but say: 'Would that this brick be put in its place!' So I am that brick, and I am the last of the Prophets."
Reported Jabir bin Abdullah that the Prophet of Allah (saws) said: Through me the Prophethood was brought to a close.
Narrated in Muslim, Tirmidhi, Ibn Maajah.
Reported Ubayy bin Kaab, Abu Said al Khudri, and Abu Hurairah, that the Prophet of Allah (saws) said: I have been distinguished from the other Prophets in six things:
- I have been endowed with eloquent speech,
- I have been succoured with awe,
- Booty has been made lawful for me,
- The earth has been made a mosque for me as well as a means of obtaining purity,
- I have been appointed a Messenger for the entire world,
- And, with me, the office of Prophethood has been closed.
Reported by Tirmidhi.
The Messenger of Allah (saws) said, The line of Prophethood and Apostleship has come to an end. After me, there will neither be a prophet or an apostle.
Narrated Abdur Rahman bin Jubair that the Prophet of Allah (saws) said, I am Mohamed, the Ummi Prophet (thrice); and then he (saws) said, and no prophet will come after me.
In light of the above aayah of Surah Ahzaab and the various narrations of Prophet Mohamed (saws), there should be absolutely no doubt in the mind of any believer that Prophet Mohamed (saws) is indeed the Last and Final Prophet of Allah, and there will come no Prophet after him. It is a condition of the faith of a muslim to believe in Prophet Mohamed (saws) as the Last and Final Messenger of Allah and any who believes otherwise would leave the fold of Islam.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
Your brother and well wisher in Islam,
