Mirza Ghulam Ahmad and most Ahmadi-mullahs have terrible Tajweed. In Islam, the Imams normally have really good Tajweed. In fact, MGA never recited the Quran in Salaat as an Imam, however, we all know that his tajweed was terrible, in a friday sermon from 7-31-15, Mirza Masroor Ahmad admits that MGA had terrible tajweed.
Why is Tajweed important?
Arabic words change in meaning if they are pronounced incorrectly…hence, it is paramount to pronounce them properly. Ahmadis argue about over 100 Arabic words in the Quran and deliberately change their meanings, at the same time…they pronounce them incorrectly.
Mirza Masroor Ahmad’s comments, the quote
“”””Hazrat Musleh Maud (may Allah be pleased with him) said that it is not right to attempt to pronounce each word of the Qur’an like a qari because God has not given us the capacity to do so. He said his late wife Umme Tahir’s father was very keen about teaching of Holy Qur’an and had kept tutors for his children for the purpose. These tutors were very harsh and would beat the children a lot when mistakes were made. They would insert twigs between the children’s fingers and put pressure on them for their mispronunciation. As related in last Friday sermon once an Arab came to meet the Promised Messiah (on whom be peace) and on hearing him pronounce an Arabic letter in a Punjabi accent he said (God forbid) how could he be the Promised Messiah when he could not even pronounce the letter. This was indeed most impertinent of the Arab. Every country has its own accent.
Hazrat Musleh Maud (may Allah be pleased with him) said that Indians pronounced the Arabic letter ض in two ways whereas its pronunciation was different. Since Arabs themselves say that only they can pronounce the letter ض , what room is there then to criticise others?
Arab Ahmadis should keep this in view. The large majority of them understand but some people have the trait to be boastful. A Pakistan woman married to an Arab speaks with a guttural sound and thinks she has the correct pronunciation whereas she does not. Had she kept this to her person Hazrat Khalifatul Masih would not have mentioned it but it has come to his knowledge that she derides Pakistanis when in company and says they do not know how to read the Qur’an and cannot properly pronounce Arabic. This is followed by Arabs ridiculing Pakistanis. Hazrat Khalifatul Masih said he did not mean all Arabs ridiculed, perhaps the family she is married into does so. Islam has to win hearts of all ethnicities and make them familiar with the Word of God, in fact instil its love in hearts. However, people read it with their own accents and owing to love for the Qur’an everyone tries to read it in their best way possible. Indeed, attention should be given to read it thoughtfully and properly and those who know the correct pronunciation should help others rather than ridicule them.”””
Ahmadis were violent with children
Another knock on the Ahmadis is their treatment of children. Ahmadis are very harsh. In Pakistan, they all beat their children over the most trivial matters. In the quote presented, obviously, there is lots of extremism in Ahmadiyya.
MGA’s companions were about to commit violence on the Arab who criticized MGA’s tajweed
Friday Sermon, 7-24-16, MASROOR
“””Hazrat Musleh Maud (may Allah be pleased with him) said that some Arabic letters can only
be pronounced correctly by Arabs. Once an Arab came to an assembly of the Promised Messiah (on whom be peace) who did Tabligh to him and quoted from the Holy Qur’an pronouncing certain words/letters in a non-Arabic accent. The Arab remarked that the Promised Messiah assumed to be a Prophet, but he did not even know how to pronounce the words how he could present its commentary! Companion of the Promised Messiah raised their hand to hit the man but the Promised Messiah grabbed his hand and stopped him. He explained that these people only have this as their weaponry how could they not use it! The Promised Messiah (on whom be peace) also said that honesty and proper arguments should not be expected of them or else there would have been no need for his advent. He said his advent demonstrated that these people had no real arsenal. Hazrat Musleh Maud (may Allah be pleased with him) said that when the Arabs themselves maintain that no one can pronounce the letters ق and ض like them, then why are they critical when someone ‘mispronounces’ them?”””
