Corruption in the Ahmadiyya Jamaat


“Where will the money come from? And how will such a community be born- a community of people willing to perform heroic feats for their faith? These are not the questions that worry me. I am more concerned that people coming after me may stumble when entrusted with such large amounts of wealth and that they may take to the love of this world”.  

   - Hadhrat Ahmad (as)  [ Al Wassiyat,  p.28, Qadian: Nazarat Nashro Ishaat, (2003) ]


No one would have been happier than the Promised Massih (as) to see that his fears were misplaced and that his Community will always tread in the path of righteousness and moral probity. Yet, the fact that he warned the Community on this ground shows that he knew that in the ebb and flow of time, the ruling elite in the Community will be guilty of financial impropriety and pecuniary misconduct. Some the visions of the Promised Massih (as), recorded in the Thadhkirah, also point to a time of decline of real spiritual fervour in the Community even as material riches and power ambitions engulf the leadership.  In short, the Promised Massih (as) knew that Imaan will desert the hearts of Ahmadis and go back to Pleiades necessitating the coming of other Elects of Allah in the Jamaat.

Khalifatullah Hadhrat Munir Ahmad Azim Sahib (atba) of Mauritius has recently warned the leadership of the Ahmadiyya Community against the tendency to protect and preserve individuals and leaders who abuse their position to play with the hard earned money of common Ahmadis and those who are guilty of pecuniary misconduct and moral irresponsibility. He especially mentioned the case of the so called National Amir of Mauritius who is presiding over a corrupt establishment for many years and is being protected by the coterie around the Khalifatul Massih V.

Read the Extracts from the Friday Sermon of February 11, 2011:

"Abuse of power has long made the temporal happiness of some chiefs but their lot is definitely the pit of misery and despair, especially when their acts move them to committing the worst, disregarding their conscience and prior duty to the people, but here in the case of a so-called Amir of a spiritual movement, his prior duty which should have been firsthand to Allah and to the good administration of the Jamaat of the past Messiah.

Thus corruption has spread in the Jamaat Ahmadiyya of what Ameen Jowahir’s hands have wrought, that He (Allah) may make him and his yes-men taste the evil consequences of their doings, but will they ever repent and undo their evils? Will they change the crocodile skin which they have donned to rob the Jamaat of its funds? The same funds which are hard-earned contributions of the poor Ahmadi people?

Under the guise of an angelic face, the Ahmadi Muslims have taken this so-called Amir as God on earth, despite knowing fully well his evil scheming and thus, with their own conscience, they firmly affirm their stand and condition – their bondage, much like slavery in the times of Moses (upon him be peace). Like the people of Israel, the Ahmadi Muslims of today despite knowing the cruelties, double-language, fraudulent activities, hypocrisy and supposedly godly attributes of a so-called all-powerful pharaoh of this epoch, they readily submit to his inventions and unislamic instructions and obey him instead of following the Moses of this era. The people of Israel, despite being in bondage, viewed the call of Moses (upon him be peace) as doubtful, suspicious (save a few) and they levelled on him all sorts of blames, but Allah cleared him of all blames and showed his superiority as Envoy of God over a merely mortal and imbecile who took himself to be superior to Allah and His Prophet.

Likewise, the Pharaoh of this era, despite being subordinate to a Khalifa, takes himself as superior and makes his so-called beloved Khalifa become a puppet in his hands. Indeed Allah described these kinds of people in the Quran:

“They have taken their priests and their monks for lords besides Allah” (9: 31).

“O you who believe! Surely, many of the priests and monks devour the wealth of people by false means and turn (people) away from the way of Allah. And those who hoard gold and silver and spend it not in the way of Allah – give to them the tidings of a painful punishment.” (9: 34)

By His immense grace, Allah has sent His very own Khalifa (a Khalifatullah) with guidance and a truthful Jamaat, enabling it to shine above all other Jamaats which exists in the Ummat-e-Muhammadiyya (peace be upon him) and in the Jamaat of Hazrat Massih Maoud (upon him be peace), even this state of affairs do not please the evildoers and opponents. 

Since long, there has been much embezzlement in the Ahmadiyya Muslim Association in Mauritius. There were many instances when exorbitant money was drawn from the Jamaat for expenditures which cost much less than officially requested.

In the Ahmadiyya Association of Mauritius’ history there have been frauds made by in-charges of funds, such money which have been missing from receipts and such money which has appeared out of the blue in the life of these people who beforehand lead modest way of life. Greed is indeed a satanic attributes if it exceeds all limits, for wasn’t it greed for honour and recognition from Allah which has made Ibliss revolt against Allah. It is this same greed for power, doubled with arrogance which led him to his perdition.

But unfortunately in the Ahmadiyya Association, despite the great frauds which had taken place, no severe action had been taken to punish such people who have rob their own Jamaat, such money which one and all had contributed for the good progress of the Jamaat. 

Or were they thinking: “Oh, how about robbing my Jamaat because it has too much money. The Khalifa is touring the world, why not me? Why not enjoy the money of the Jamaat members and enrich myself and my family members? Why not make like the politicians who have robbed money for the enlargement of their dynasty?”

Instead of taking severe measures against these imbeciles, but what has been done?

Condemning someone who says that he receives divine revelations and outcast him from the administration of the Jamaat and applying boycott on him and his followers”.

Assalam o alaikum Wr Wb,
I am grand son of Hadhrat Hafiz Jamal Ahmad RA, I am also not agree the way this ruling elite treating Hadhrat Masih e maud followers, and how corrupt the jamat office holder are now days but the Khalafat is busy with making holidays around the world with money which suppose to be use for the welfare of Jamat Ahmadiya. The Ruling elite so arrogant and corrupt that the behave like kings.It seems that every Jamat office holder from center to majlis busy to get his pocket fill with funds and showing off in the papers with politicians, the are not doing any thing for the needy Masih e maud followers. I wish that Allah swt bless us with true and honest Khalafat Ameen.
