In 1984, the famous Al-Azhar University issued a Fatwa of Kufr against the Qadiani-Ahmadi’s and the Lahori-Ahmadi’s, this was signed by the Grand Imam, Gad al-Haq Ali Gad al-Haq . They declared the Qadiani-Ahmadi’s as Kafir because of their belief in the continuation of prophethood. In terms of the Lahori-Ahmadi’s, they were also declared Kafir, however, this was based on their denial of the miraculous birth of Esa (as). This was published in the Muslim Digest of Oct/Nov/Dec of 1984. This seems to be a newspaper in South Africa. We are unsure how many Ahmadi’s were in South Africa in 1984. There was a huge case in terms of the Lahori-Ahmadi’s in this era, it seems like this is in relation to that incident. Again, we are unclear how and when any form of Ahmadiyya made it to South Africa.
