AN OPEN INVITATION TO A MUBAHALA

6 AN OPEN INVITATION TO A MUBAHALA Now whoso disputes with thee concerning him, after what has come to thee of knowledge, say to him, ‘Come, let us call our sons and your sons, and our women and your women, and our people and your people, then let us pray fervently and invoke the curse of Allah on those who lie!’ (Holy Quran: AI-Imran:62) To all the leaders who play a prominent role in the rejection of all the claims of Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad of Qadian, Founder of the Ahmadiyya Movement, and insist that he was an imposter. Also to those leaders who incite hostility against the Ahmadiyya Community with totally false and fabricated allegations. Mubahala: A term of the Holy Quran which means that when the claimant of God is outrightly rejected and no further room is left for a meaningful dialogue and argumentation, then both the parties – those who believe in him and those who reject him – should invoke the curse of Allah on the wilful liars. TI-IIS IN”VIT.A. TION” IS TO .A.LL REVIEW OF RELIGIONS 7 FOREWORD Ever since the promulgation of the anti-Ahmadiyya Ordinance of 26th April, 1984 by the then dictator of Pakistan, the Government of Pakistan has usurped the fundamental religious and human rights of Jamaat Ahmadiyya to profess Islam to be its faith. Ahmadis have been debarred, on pain of punishment, from: * * * * Affirming their faith through the recitation of Kalima Tayyaba [Lailaha Illallaho Muhammad-ur-Rasulallah] (There is no god but Allah, Muhammad is His Messenger); Calling the Adhan (call to prayers); Calling their mosques as “Mosques”; Professing to be Muslims. Following upon this, an ,utterly false and evil world-wide campaign is being carried out to malign Jamaat Ahmadiyya and its leadership. This campaign is being fully supported by the Government of Pakistan and to a large measure, financed by the Rabita-i-Alam Islami of ‘Saudi Arabia. Such scholars and ‘Ulemas’ mainly from Pakistan, have been hired or are being supported who have devoted themselves entirely to the task of spreading lies and attributing beliefs to Jamaat Ahmadiyya which have nothing to do with the real beliefs and faith of Jamaat Ahmadiyya. A continuous and unabated movement is being launched and maintained to vilify the Ahmadiyya Community ‘in the sight of other Muslims to create greater distance and chasm between them. Moreover, a part of this campaign is being directed at the character- assasination of the Founder of the world-wide Ahmadiyya Movement, Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad of Qadian (1835-1908), and other Ahmadiyya religious leaders. This has now been carried too far. No doubt, this campaign is spearheaded by the President of Pakistan, ex-Chief Martial Law Administrator, General Muhammad Ziaul Haq, who set the ball rolling through the afore-mentioned Ordinance which has deprived Ahmadis of all their fundamental 8 MUBAHALA religious rights. In my capacity as Head of the world-wide Ahmadiyya Community, I hereby declare that: Whereas all attempts on my part and on the part of Jamaat Ahmadiyya to make the leaders of this campaign to see the light of the day and to behave sanely have failed, and Whereas they have no regard for Islamic principles of justice and fair play, in their treatment of Jamaat Ahmadiyya, We are left with no choice but to invite them to Mubahala and to take this long drawn dispute to the Court of God Almighty, the All-Knowing and All-Powerful. May He decide between right and wrong and between those who are true and those who are liars. Prominent among these to whom this invitation is specially addressed are: (a). General Muhammad Ziaul Haq, ex-Chief Martial Law Administrator of Pakistan; (b). Officials of Rabita-e-Alam Islami who have been surreptitiously inciting many governments to take such measures against Jamaat Ahmadiyya as have been taken by the Government of Pakistan and who have been secretly funding many anti-Ahmadiyya Movements; (c). Leaders of religious denominations specifically hostile to the Ahmadiyya Community, including those religious scholars who style themselves as “Ulema Khatmi-Nabuwwat”: (d). All political leaders of Pakistan who have overtly or covertly aided and abetted the hostile anti-Ahmadiyya campaign: (e). Such government officials who have been carrying out this campaign at the behest of the Government of Pakistan: (f). All judges of the so-called “Shariat Courts” of Pakistan: (g). All those scholars who have authored anti-Ahmadiyya literature. be it in the form of pamphlets. books. or articles. etc.: REVIEW OF RELIGIONS 9 (h). All those magistrates and judges of the courts of Pakistan who have sentenced Ahmadis under various provisions of the Pakistan Penal Code for committing the following so-called “crimes” ; (i) The profession that Ahmadis are Muslims and have no Faith other than Islam; (ii) The declaration that: 41)1 J”””J I~ 01 ~I J J.\I ‘\’1 4J1 ‘\’ 01 ~I [I bear witness that there is no god but Allah,’ and 1 bear witness that Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah]; (iii) The observance of Prayers as prescribed by the Holy Quran and the Sunnah; (iv) The recitation of the Holy Quran; (v) The greetings of peace to other non-Ahmadi Muslims by addressing them in the words “Assalamo Alaikum”; (vi) To inscribe or to be found in possession of any written verse of the Holy Quran, printed or otherwise; THE INVITATION We can divide our invitation to Mubahala into two parts, hereafter referred to as: Part A: The rejection of the claims of the Founder ofthe Ahmadiyya Movement and declaring him to be an imposter, a conscious liar, a knave, a dissembler and one who attributed words to Allah which He never spoke to him. Part B: Accusations against Jamaat Ahmadiyya and attributing to it such beliefs, actions and designs with which Jamaat Ahmadiyya has nothing to do. 10 MUBAHALA By the authority vested in me as the Imam and Head of the world-wide Jamaat Ahmadiyya, I hereby invite all those who hold either of the beliefs set out in Parts A or B above, to a Mubahala in ac:cor-dance with the teachings of the Holy Quran: rt i\–:’~; G 5/..:;;;t {Q -‘ G’rc;i g i~~jt -: I ~ .. J “,.n/ -: .. ..- .. ,..:: ~ t- ~~f\” (–::0.:\” ~\ ~ . ~~..-J .J . .J ~ 0 ~~’f.-::J\~ ” ..• Say to him, ‘Come, let us call our sons and your sons, and our women and your women, and our people and your people, then let us pray fenently and invoke the curse of Allah on those who tell lies!” MUBAHALA: PART A: (AI-Imran: 62) As far as part A is concerned, there already exists an invitation to Mubahala to all concerned since 1907 in the very words of the Founder of the Ahmadiyya Movement, Mirza Ghulam Ahmad of Qadian, which we reproduce below: “Everyone who considers me to be a liar, and everyone who regards me to be a cheat and an imposter, and rejects my claim that I am the Promised Messiah, and considers whatever revelation I have received from God Almighty as fabrication, be he called a Muslim, or a Hindu, or an Arya, or be he of any other faith – he is at liberty to publish a Mubahala challenge against me. He can publish the said Mubahala in some newspapers declaring: I swear by God Almighty that I am fully convinced that this person, [here he should clearly write my name], who claims to be the Promised Messiah, is infact a manifest liar indeed, and this revelation, some of which he has written in this book, is not the word of God but a concoction on his part infact. Having given due consideration, pondered over this matter with gravity, and having fully deliberated over this matter, I can declare with full responsibility that this claimant is false and fraudulent and also a fabricator and a dissembler. Therefore, 0 Mighty God, if according to Thee, Mirza Ghulam Ahmad is true in his claim – not an imposter, a liar, an infidel or a non-believer, then, on account of my rejection and mockery of truth, inflict a severe REVIEW OF RELIGIONS 11 chastisement on me. If, however, my adversary is in the wrong, then subject him to severe punishment instead. Amen! This door is open for anyone desirous of seeing a fresh sign. (Haqeeqatul Wahy, Roohani Khazain Vol. 22 p. 71-72) Since the Founder of the Ahmadiyya Movement who issued this challenge is no longer alive, it is essential that his followers and adherents representing him openly accept the responsiblity and consequences of his challenge on his behalf as the First Party of Mubahala. As Head of the world-wide Ahmadiyya Community, I declare with full consciousness the acceptance of this responsibility along with the members of my family and the entire world-wide Jamaat Ahmadiyya. MUBAHALA: PART B Following is a list of allegations made by the enemies of Jamaat Ahmadiyya which Jamaat Ahmadiyya declares to be blatantly false and totally baseless. On this issue, I on behalf of Jamaat Ahmadiyya invite all those responsible for engineering and fabricating these lies or those, believing them to be true, to accept this challenge to a Mubahala and publish their consent thereof in a few dailies so that people at large may become witness to this. ALLEGATIONS: GROUP ONE * It is claimed: That the Founder of the Ahmadiyya Community, Mirza Ghulam Ahmad of Qadian, clearly denied the Khatam-e-Nabuwwat of Hazrat Muhammad Mustafa, Rasulullah, may peace and blessings of Allah be upon him, and did not believe him to be the Khataman Nabiyyeen and as such Ahmadies hold the same belief; * That Mirza Ghulam Ahmad of Qadian was guilty of the inteq~olation of the Holy Quran and wilful distortion of its text and meamngs; * That he has debased the mausoleum of the Holy Prophet, may peace and blessings of Allah be upon him, and declared it to be the 12 MUBAHALA most putrid site – a place where insects abound; * That he has slandered Hazrat Imam Hussain and declared his rememberance to be a pile of shit; * That having studied the history of all the false claimants, he wilfully proclaimed himself to be a prophet whereas God had never commissioned him for anything; * That he abrogated the Quranic concept of Jihad at the behest of the British; * That his claim was not that of a subordinate prophet under the Holy Prophet, may peace and blessings of Allah be upon him, but he claimed to be a new law-bringer and brought forth a Shariah of his own other than that of Islam; * That the Qadianis (Ahmadis) consider the claimed “revelation” of Mirza Ghulam Ahmad of Qadian and published under the title, Tadkira, equal in rank to the Holy Quran and believe it to be the book of Shariah. In my capacity as the Imam of the world-wide Jamaat Ahmadiyya, I do hereby declare all these allegations to be utterly false and a bundle of fabrications against the Founder of the Ahmadiyya Community. So, in the words of the Holy Quran, We invoke • 1;:-‘1,/1;;: l~ *’;~ u-;UJr . ……… / Allah’s curse be on those who tell lies. ALLEGATIONS: GROUP TWO As part of the campaign of the character-assassination of the Holy Founder of the Ahmadiyya Community, Mirza Ghulam Ahmad of Qadian, it is claimed: * That he was a cheat and a dishonest person; * That in retribution for the misappropriation of household property, his father had expelled him from his home; REVIEW OF RELIGIONS 13 * That most of his prophecies and revelations which he declared to be Divine, turned out to be a pack of lies; * That the British gave hundreds of thousands of acres of land to Mirza Ghulam Ahmad of Qadian. In my capacity as the Imam of the world-wide Jamaat Ahmadiyya, I do hereby declare all these allegations to be utterly false and a bundle of fabrications against the Founder of the Ahmadiyya Community. So, in the words of the Holy Quran, We invoke 0L;lfJl”lf: ~ I;;t<-;J .. ."..... ,-,-~ Allah's curse be on those who tell lies. ALLEGATIONS: GROUP THREE The following beliefs and dogmas are being attributed to Jamaat Ahmadiyya in a campaign of world-wide propaganda so that the entire world may be led to believe that actually these are the articles of the Ahmadiyya faith. It is alleged that Qadianis (Ahmadis) believe about Mirza Ghulam Ahmad: * That he was God himself; * That he was literally the son of God; * That he was the father of God; They also believe: * That he was superior in rank to Cljll prophets including the Holy Messenger of God, Muhammad, may peace and blessings of Allah be upon him; * That against his proclaimed revelations from God, the traditions of the Holy Prophet of Islam, may peace and blessings of Allah be upon him, stand nowhere and should be rejected outright as being insignificant; * That the small room in which he used to pray and observe Salat is, according to Ahmadiyya beliefs, equal in holiness and sanctity to 14 MUBAHALA the Holy House of God in Makkah; * That the soil of Qadian is equal in holiness to the soil of Holy Makkah; * That to visit Qadian once every year guarantees the forgiveness of all past sins; * That instead of the Pilgrimage to the House of Allah at Makkah-al-Mukarramah, participation at the Ahmadiyya annual conference at Qadian suffices one as Haj (pilgrimage) to Makkah. In my capacity as the Imam of the world-wide J amaat Ahmadiyya, I do hereby declare all these allegations to be utterly false and a bundle of fabrications against the Founder of the Ahmadiyya Community. So, in the words of the Holy Quran, We invoke ~';~I~~t~ Allah's curse be on those who tell lies. ALLEGATIONS: GROUP FOUR The enemies of Jamaat Ahmadiyya allege: * That Jamaat Ahmadiyya was not commissioned by God Almighty but was implanted by the British as their agent in the world of Islam; . * That this Jamaat is a committed enemy of the Muslim Ummah; * That the claim of Jamaat Ahmadiyya that they were created to restore the health of the suffering Muslim Ummah is totally false; on the contrary, they are playing the role of cancer in the healthy body of the Muslim Ummah; * That Qadianis (Ahmadis) are not only British agents but also Jewish agents, born out of a conspiracy between the British and the Jews; * That Jamaat Ahmadiyya is also working as a direct agent for the state of Israel; REVIEW OF RELlGIO~S IS * That Jamaat Ahmadiyya is also the agent of the Lnited States of America; * That Jamaat Ahmadiyya is toe agent of Soviet Russia: * That Jamaat Ahmadiyya is the agent of India and is working against Pakistan; * That the presence of Qadiani (Ahmadi) soldiers in the Israeli army has now become an open secret; * That Qadianis (Ahmadis) are being trained ,is terrorists 111 Israel; * that six hundred Pakistani Qadianis (Ahmadis) are enlisted in the Israeli army; * That four thousand Qadianis (Ahmadis) are undergoing training as guerilla commandos in Germany. In my capacity as t!te (mam of the world-wide Jamaat Ahmadiyya, I do hereby declare all these allegations to be utterly false and a bundle of fabrications against the Ahmadiyya Community. So, in the words of the Holy Quran, wc invoke arabic Allah's curse he Oil those who tell lies. ALLEGATIONS: GROUP FIVE Also the following most abhorrent and despicable lies are levelled against Jamaat Ahmadiyya; * That the Kalima (article of faith) of the Ahmadis is different from the Kalima (article of faith) of the rest of the Muslim; * That when Ahmadis recite the same Kalima .................................. . as their article of faith, they wilfully deceive people; and when they recite the name of Muhammad, peace and blessings of Allah be upon him, within their hearts they change this name to that of Mirza Ghulam Ahmad of Qadian, thereby reciting their Kalima 16 MUBAHALA rather than that of the Holy Prophet, may peace and blessings of Allah be upon him; * That the God in Whom Qadianis (Ahmadis) believe is not the same God as presented by Islam and the Holy Prophet, may peace and blessings of Allah be upon him; * That the angels in which Qadianis (Ahmadis) believe are not the same as mentioned in the Holy Quran and by the Holy Prophet of Islam; * That the Messengers of God in whom Qadianis (Ahmadis) believe are not the same Messengers as are presented by the Holy Quran; * That their mode of worship is also different from the Islamic mode of worship; * That their pilgrimage is also different; * That, in brief, in all fundamental Islamic articles of Faith, the ones of the Qadianis (Ahmadis) are poles apart from the Quran and the Traditions. In my capacity as the Imam of the world-wide Jamaat Ahmadiyya, I do hereby declare all these allegations to be utterly false and a bundle of fabrications against the Ahmadiyya Community. So, in the words of the Holy Quran, we invoke Allah's curse be on those who tell lies. ALLEGATIONS: GROUP SIX As far as the incitement of hatred against Ahmadis among the people of Pakistan is concerned, many other false allegations are also levelled against Ahmadis: * That according to Qadiani (Ahmadi) doctrines, Pakistan has been created against the Will of God; REVIEW OF RELIGIONS 17 * That Hazrat Mirza Mahmud Ahmad (Khalifatul Masih 11), the then Head of the Jamaat Ahmadiyya, had pledged to break up Pakistan; * That all Qadianis (Ahmadis) are involved in an attempt to realise a prophecy made be Mirza Bashiruddin Mahmud Ahmad regarding the merger of Pakistan with India and the ultimate emergence of one united India without Pakistan; * That Liaquat Ali Khan, the first Prime Minister of Pakistan, was assassinated by a Qadiani (Ahmadi); * That Qadianis (Ahmadis) have hatched a plot to create chaos leading to civil war in Pakistan; * That Qadianis (Ahmadis) are perpetually engaged in conspiratorial activities against the security of Pakistan; * That Qadianis (Ahmadis) are responsible for the present unrest and ever-growing destabilisation in Pakistan: they are the cause of increasing law-and-order problems and terrorist activities, etc; * That the series of ethnic riots in Karachi are conspired and organised by the Qadianis (Ahmadis); * That the incident of the Badshahi Mosque in which the Brelvis clashed with the Deobandis was a Qadianis (Ahmadis) conspiracy; * That Qadianis (Ahmadis) plotted to assassinate five hundred religious leaders; * That the subtle Ahmadiyya hand is working behind every terrorist explosion which takes place in sectarian violence, linguistic bigotry and all kinds of subversive tendencies in the country; * That the tragic incident of Ojri Camp when thousands of military rockets in the Camp suddenly went amuck and started exploding resulting in the death of thousands of innocent people and the destruction of countless number of homes in the capital of Pakistan, Islamabad, and the nearby city of Rawalpindi, was engineered and perpetrated by Qadianis (Ahmadis); 18 MUBAHALA * That two days before the said incident, all Qadianis (Ahmadis) had vacated their homes and shifted to other cities thereby pro-vi{tg their direct involvement in the incident; " * That Rabwah (the Headquarters of Jamaat Ahmadiyya) hasl an arsenal of Russian weapons; * That the youths in Rabwah are being armed with the said Russian weapons and trained in subversive activities; * That a Qadiani (Ahmadi) has already provided Israel with atomic secrets stolen from Pakistan. In my capacity as the Imam of the world-wide Jamaat Ahmadiyya, I do hereby declare all these allegations to be utterly false and a bundle of fabrications against the Abmadiyya Community. So, in the words of the Holy Quran, We invoke. Allah's curse be on those who tell lies.

REVIEW OF RELIGIONS 19 In my capacity as the Imam of the world-wide Jamaat Ahmadiyya, I do hereby declare all these allegations to be utterly false and a bundle of fabrications against the Abmadiyya Community. So, in the words of the Holy Quran, We invoke ~~~t~~I~ Allah's curse be on those who tell lies. TRUE AHMADIYYA BELIEFS The question now arises that if Ahmadiyyat is not a new faith as alleged by its opponents and discussed in the preceding chapters, then what according to Ahmadis themselves is their true faith and what actually are their beliefs. In my capacity as Head of the world-wide Jamaat Ahmadiyya, I declare in the very words of the Founder of the Ahmadiyya Movements, Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad of Qadian, the answer to this question. Says Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad: "We do believe that there is none worthy of worship except God Almighty and Syedna Hazrat Muhammad, the Chosen One, may peace and blessings of Allah be upon him, is His Messenger and the Khatamul Anbiya. We believe that angels are a reality, that Resurrection is a reality and that the Day of Judgement is a reality; that Heaven is reality and so is Hell. We do believe that whatever the Glorious and Majestic God has stated in the Holy Quran and whatever our Prophet, may peace and blessings of Allah be upon him, has stated is all, according to the aforementioned statement, the truth. We do believe that the person who subtracts an iota from the Islamic law or adds to it as much, or lays the foundation in any manner for rejection of Islamic injunctions, or attempts to declare unlawful what has been made lawful in Islam, is an infidel and a renegade to Islam. 20 MUBAHALA We admonish our Jamaat that they must adhere tenaciously to the fundamental article of Islamic faith. "There is no God but Allah, Muhammad is His Messenger" as long as they live and that they should die holding fast to the same belief. Also they must have firm faith in all the Messengers of Allah and revealed Books which have been authenticated by the Holy Quran. They should abide strictly by the Quranic injunctions. They should strictly observe Prayers and Fast, pay Zakat and perform the Haj (pilgrimage). They should observe Islam by fully complying with all the injunctions, obligations and prohibitions pronounced by God and His Messenger. In short, all such matters, be they beliefs or deeds, on which there was consensus of opinion among our righteous predecessors and as are understood to be Islam by the general consensus of opinion of those who follow the traditions of the Holy Prophet of Islam, may peace and blessings of Allah be upon him, should be complied with as being obligatory; We call to witness the Heaven and the Earth that exactly is our Faith." (Ayyamus Sulh p.88-87, First Edition) Then, he says: "I always look with wonder at this Arabian Prophet, whose name is Muhammad, peace and thousands of blessings of Allah be upon him. How exalted his status was! One cannot perceive the ultimate limit of his station. It is not within the scope of man to fully comprehend the depth and penetration of his ennobling qualities. Alas! due recognition has not been paid to his lofty rank. That Unity (of God) which had disappeared from the world was restored by this same radiant champion. He loved God most intensely; so also was his soul being consumed in deep sympathy for mankind. That is why God, Who was fully aware of the hidden excellences of his heart, exalted him above all the Prophets and all the people of the past and the future, and fulfilled his heart's desire in the mere span of his lifetime. He is the fountainhead of every grace and bounty. A person who claims to have attained any spiritual excellence without confessing his indebtedness to the blessings of this Holy REVIEW OF RELIGIONS 21 Prophet is not human but belongs to Satan's camp. He was made to possess the key to every excellence and the treasure of all deeper understanding was bestowed upon him. He who does not receive from him is an eternal destitute. What are we indeed and what is our worth? We shall certainly be most ungrateful if we did not confess that we obtained the real and true Faith in the Unity of God from that very Holy Prophet. Again, we gained access to the true understanding of the Ever-Living God with the help of and through the light of the same noble Prophet. For us to be the recipient of God's revelation and to be blessed with Divine communication which enables us to behold the countenance of God Almighty is a singular honour bestowed upon us by the blessings of the same illustrious Prophet." - (Haqeeqatul Wahi-Roohani Khazain Vol. 22. pg.118-119) This in short is the doctrine and the faith of Jamaat Ahmadiyya. This is the true position in which Ahmadis hold the Founder of the Ahmadiyya Movement, vis-a-vis the Holy Prophet, Muhammad, may peace and blessings of Allah be upon him. Anyone who has the audacity to attribute any other faith to the Jamaat Ahmadiyya acts with sheer malice, perfidy and injustice. In my capacity as the Imam of the J amaat Ahmadiyya, I do hereby invite all such persons who, having read the afore-mentioned statement, still persist in their antagonistic attitude and do not refrain from spreading lies against J amaat Ahmadiyya to accept the challenge of this Mubahala. This invitation is open to all who decide to accept it. To formally become the second party of this spiritual contest, those who accept this limitation should set their signatures to this challenge and leaving no ambiguity whatsoefer make it known to the world at large by publishing it by all afailable means.
