Name of group: Qaadiyaaniyyah, also known as the Ahmadiyyah
Adherent to group: Qaadiyaanee, plural – Qaadiyaaniyyoon. Also known as an Ahmadee or

By the concensus of the scholars, the Qaadiyaaniyyah are a kaafir sect which assumes the name of Islaam to cover up its real evil aims and goals, and its corrupted ‘aqeedah, of which the most dangerous aspect being the calling to and belief in the prophethood of their founder. In addition to changing the text of the Noble Qur.aan, and denying jihaad and making takfeer (render someone a kaafir) of the Muslims and displaying loyalty to the enemies of the Muslims.

It’s founder was a man by the name of Mirza Ghulaam Ahmad al-Qaadiyaanee who was born in the 19th century (C.E.) in the city of Qaadiyaan in the province of Panjab in India in 1839 C.E. at the time of the British rule there. Hence this sect assumes its name from the birthplace of its founder. He came from a family who were well-known for their deviousness in their religious affairs, and as such Mirza Ghulaam Ahmad grew up in such surroundings.

Whilst India was still under British rule, the Qaadiyaaniyyah movement was founded in 1900 C.E. with the aim of distancing the Muslims from their true religion from such obligations as jihaad as was propogated in the English language magazine at that time called ((The Religions)).

Mirza Ghulaam Ahmad claimed that revelation descended upon him via dreams, and he then claimed that he was the reviver of Islaam of that time, and that he resembled the prophet ‘Eesaa (‘alayhis-salaam). Later, in 1901 C.E. he claimed he was actually the prophet ‘Eesaa (‘alayhis-salaam), and in 1904 C.E. he claimed prophethood for himself by saying he was “Krishna” who was the idol worshiped by the Hindus. The British rulers in India did their best to promote this movement and as such acknowledged its support for them, and they in turn acknowledged allegiance to them.

Mirza Ghulaam Ahmad was known by his followers to be a narcomaniac (drug-addict), bad-tempered and suffering from many illnesses.

From those who stood to refute him was Shaykh Abul-Wafaa. Thanaa.-ullaah al-Amar Tisree who was the leader of the Ahlul-Hadeeth movement in India. He revealed Mirza Ghulaam Ahmad’s true and evil nature and established proof upon him as to his path of falsehood. After this, when Mirza Ghulaam Ahmad refused to correct his ways and accept the truth Shaykh Abul-Wafaa. beseeched Allaah to cause death to anyone of the two who were lying. And as such not many days passed until Mirza Ghulaam Ahmad died in 1908 C.E.

So the final proof as to his deceit was that, if he was indeed a prophet as he and his followers claimed (even to this day), then he should have been buried in the toilet where he actually died. Instead, he was taken back to Qaadiyaan to be buried there.

He left behind him over 50 books and other publications, amongst the main ones being:
1) Izaalatul-Awhaam;
2) I’jaaz Ahmadee;
3) Baraaheen Ahmadiyyah;
4) Anwaar al-Islaam;
5) I’jaaz al-Maseeh;
6) at-Tableegh;
7) Tajalliyyaat Ilaahiyyah.
