A Warning to Nasir Ahmad Sultani

Nasir Ahmad Sultani, the founder of Jama’at Ahmadiyya (Haqiqi) claims that Allah Almighty has appointed him as Mujaddid for 15th century of Islamic calendar on March 31st 2011. His group and he himself had been claiming as their “speciality” that he “has live contact with Allah Almighty” and that no other religious leader of this age can compete with him in this. 

In recent comments published at the official Blog of the Lahore Ahmadiyya Movement on October 19, 2011, Sultani Sahib made sweeping statements: 

Live contact with Allah Almighty is the main objective of a religion. Every religion and nowadays Islam must provide opportunity to connect people to their Creator. But there was none. I have searched and challenged all over the world. There is none of the followers of Islam who has his own presentable live connection with Allah Almighty.

There are some people who are claiming. But if you see minutely, you will know easily that they are not on the right path. Like Munir A. Azim sb., A. Ghaffar Janba sb. and Zafarullah D. sb. These claimants are not believers of Khatm-e-Nabuwat. They think that Khalifas of Mirza Mahmood sb. are true Khlifas although Janba sb. has some disagreement. Munir sb. thinks that Mirza Mahmood sb. was Musleh Maud. Munir sb. is claimant of Ummati Nabi as well…”

In his Friday Sermon of October 28, 2011 the Khalifatullah Hadhrat Munir Ahmad Azim Sahib of Mauritius has taken serious note of these statements of a claimant to an august office who has no qualms about judging the faith of others. Hadhrat Sahib noted:

You are labelling this humble self as false, that I am not a Muslim. Have you got the patent to judge the faith of others? Nabi Kareem (sa) himself did not possess the patent to judge the faith of others, so then who do you think you are?

You are trying to extinguish the Light of Allah with your mouth, but let me tell you that Allah Almighty shall persist to perfect His Light, even if this is not to your liking (despite your recriminations). It is Allah alone who has sent His Caliph (Khalifatullah) with guidance and the religion of truth, to make it shine over all other religions and even over your Jamaat, even if it this does not please you at all.

(As it seems from your point of view) that surely Allah should have taken permission from you to raise this humble self as His Caliph (Khalifatullah). Messengers of Allah come because Allah wishes not to destroy (the populations of) towns for their sins before sending warnings (and Warners) to them (while they are still unaware). Allah Almighty says in the Quran – Surah Al-An’am (6: 124), this verse in this era applying also to you Nasir Ahmad Sultani:

“And thus We have placed within every city the greatest of its criminals to conspire therein. But they conspire not except against themselves, and they perceive (it) not.”

And it is people like you who say – when a sign comes from Allah amidst them – “We shall not believe therein for as soon as we do not receive a sign like the prophets received.” Allah knows best where He has placed His message. Very soon, Allah Almighty shall send on people like you something terrible which shall degrade and humiliate you and also a great punishment, because of the way you acted and talked about the Servant of Allah in this era. The one whom Allah wants to guide, He opens his heart to Islam, the one whom Allah wants to let him go astray (through his own fault), He hardened his chest and restricted, and you are a clear example of this.

O Nasir Ahmad Sultani! What proof do you have that you are a true, sincere and truthful Muslim and that we, we are false, not Muslims and that it is only you who is true Muslim? If you come from Allah, then take the name of Allah and proclaim you as such and try to make us become true, sincere and truthful Muslims!

Put that well in your head that it is only with Pakistani people like yourself that you can talk like this. It is not you who guide people in the path of truth and it is not you who judge the faith of others. It is only Allah Almighty Who guides people towards Truth. Is the one whom Allah has guided to Truth who merits that you follow him, or the one who is deprived of guidance, without someone to guide him? What happens to you? Don’t you reflect?

Therefore I ask you (all the concerned parties) to go and re-read the Holy Quran and stop commanding people to believe in you, in that which you do and say which is unislamic.

Allah has given man freewill. By the grace of Allah all my disciples have received solid proofs of this humble self’s veracity, because I have not come by my “self”, but I was raised by Allah and receive revelations from Him (Allah). It is Allah who has elevated me, and I have no right whatsoever to renounce in that which Allah has given me as revelations. Allah and His servant is one, facing this world and the enemies and ignorant people.

One who declares to know that which he does not know shall remain ignorant (not knowing) despite putting himself in the rank of the knowledgeable, because someone who knows must know that he does not know. Therefore any unjust leader is similar to a thief. Any scholar of religion (Deen) who does not put it into practice, him and a fox is alike. Anyone who submits to someone other than Allah, him and a dog is alike. How then can a community (Jamaat) which is filled with thieves, foxes and dogs prosper?

I end with this dua:

 Allahumma inni assalukal afwa wal aafiyatawal Mu’aafaatata daa-imata Fid-dunyaa wal Aakhirah.

O Allah, I seek Your forgiveness and grace, as well as perpetual remission (of sins) in the present life and the hereafter. Ameen.
