Islam - Ahmadiyya

Ahmadiyya

 

 

"Back to the Quran" is the clarion call of the Ahmadiyya Movement; back to the pure Islam of the Holy Prophet and his companions; back to the free use of reason and to free interpretation of the Holy Book in the light of new conditions which have been brought about in the world; back to the freedom which our learned and great forefathers enjoyed. In going back to these things lies the real advancement of Islam; these are not so many steps backward but steps forward, for they take the Muslims back from darkness and mental slavery into which they have fallen, to the light and freedom which is their birthright as Muslims." - Maulana Muhammad Ali

 

“A warner came to the world but the people did not accept him; but God will accept him and manifest his truth with powerful assaults.” - Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad

  

"The time was ripe for the Promised Messiah and for none other. If I had not come , someone else would have come as the one" - Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad


 

       

Ahmadiyya Movement in Islam

 

 

 


"The name which is appropriate for this Movement and which we prefer for ourselves is Muslims of the Ahmadiyya party. We have chosen this name because the Holy Prophet, peace be on him, had two names, Muhammad and Ahmad; Muhammad was his name of glory and Ahmad was his name of beauty...  God so arranged the life of the Holy Prophet, peace be on him, that his Makkan life was a manifestation of his name Ahmad and the Muslims were taught patience and endurance. In his life in Medina, his name Muhammad was manifested, and God in His wisdom decided to chastise his enemies. 

But there was a prophecy that the name Ahmad would be manifested again in the latter days and that a person would appear through whom the qualities of beauty, which characterize Ahmad, would be manifested, and all fighting would come to an end. For this reason it has been considered appropriate that the name of this party should be Ahmadiyya, so that everyone hearing this name should realize that this party has come into being for the spread of peace and security and that it would have nothing to do with war and fightng."
