Fatwa No: 86488


Who were the Qadiani, Agha Khan?


Praise be to Allah, the Lord of the Worlds; and may His blessings and peace be upon our Prophet Muhammad and upon all his Family and Companions. al-Qadiyani was nothing but an imposter, his full name was Mirza Gulam Ahmad al-Qadiyani who was born in 1839 A.D in a village, in the province if Punjab, in India. He belonged to a family that was known for high treason against their religion and the country. First of all he claimed that he was merely a reformer. After awhile he claimed that he was al-Mahdi who would come before the Last Hour as reported in Ahadith. Then he claimed that he was a prophet and his prophethood is above the Prophethood of the Prophet Muhammad (Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam). He wrote many books such as 'Izalat al-Awham' (removing the doubts), 'Iajaz Ahmadi' (Miracles of Ahmad), 'Braheen Ahmadiyah' (proof of Ahmadi ), etc. He and his followers believe that Allah (The Most Exalted), fasts, performs prayers, sleeps, commits mistakes, etc. They also believe that their lord is an English since he speaks with him in English. This is clear evidence that he was made by English government in that time only to serve their cause. They also believe that the village where he was born is better than Makkah and Madinah. Everyone who does not enter in this village (Qadiyan) is not a Muslim, they also permit using drugs. He died on May 26, 1908 despite his claims that he would live longer. All Muslim scholars from all the parts of the earth refute his claims and issue a decree that he and his followers are out of the fold of Islam. In 1394 A.H (April, 1974) a big conference was held under the supervision of Muslim World League. The representatives of all Muslim organizations from the entire world took part in that conference and they unanimously passed a resolution that Qadiyani and his followers are not Muslims. As for ' Agha Khan ' it is the surname of the sect Agha Khaniyah which is a subgroup of the sect of al-Batiniya. 'Agha Khan' is a Persian word that means "leader". Hasan Ali Shah was the first one who was given this title. He gathered many people under his leadership and used to rob the caravans and attack the villages taking their property after killing the innocent people. He was the founder of Agha Khanyah. After his death his son became his successor, his name was Agha Ali Shah , he was named the second Agha Khan and after the second Agh Khan his son succeeded him. The custom of succeeding the son after his father is going on till this time. For more details on this subject, please read the book Agha Khan and his tasks during the Second World War, written by Dr. Farooq Othman . Allah knows best.
