“Islam vs. Ahmadiyya in Nigeria” (1975) by Dr. Is’mail A.B. Balogan, B.A., PH.D. (London) University of Ibadan


Intro

There is a famous Ex-Ahmadi named Professor Dr. Is’mail A.B. Balogan, B.A., PH.D. (London) University of Ibadan, Nigeria.  He was a Professor of Islamic and Arabic Studies at the University of Ibadan, Algeria, Dr. Balogun had dedicated his life to the cause of Ahmadiyyah and had raised through the ranks to become a top spokesman and ambassador for the Movement. Throughout the years, his well articulate and emotional speeches had motivated many young Ahmadis. Similarly, his public departure and the commotion and debates that pursued caused many educated individuals to realize the truth and abandon Ahmadiyyah.  He wrote about Ahmadiyya in the early 1970’s.  He also wrote in the Sunday Times about the dangers of Ahmadiyya.  He verbally jousted with high ranking Ahmadi Murrabi’s in Nigeria.  Molvi Ajmal Shahid, then the Amir of Ahmadiyyah movement in Nigeria, provided an extremely short reply in which he expressed his dismay at the “spiritual death of a brother (ibid., p. 97)” and Moulvi Naseem Saifi, the chief Ahmadiyyah missionary for West Africa, confirmed that Dr. Balogun had been very close and high in the administration and expressed his sadness that Dr. Balogun had abandoned Ahmadiyyah in favor of Islam (ibid., p. 99); other Ahmadi missionaries questioned his public withdrawal and, in an attempt at damage control, advanced a number of unbecoming and unproved accusations.  This book seems to have been published in 1977 and from Lahore, Pakistan.

What is this book about?
It’s basically a collection of his essay’s vs. Ahmadiyya in the year 1974, as well as his correspondance with Ahmadi Murrabi’s.

He wrote about how the Saudi Embassy refused to give Nigerian-Ahmadi’s Hajj visas for the January 1974 hajj
In the preface of his book, he himself writes:

In October 1970, the World Muslim League at Mecca passed a resolution which says among other things:

“That the Ahmadiyya (Qadiani) group founded by Mirza Ghulam Ahmad is a group that has veered far from the path of Islam by reasons of certain of its beliefs and practices which are clearly contradictory to the well-known view point of Islam”

Consequent upon this resolution, the Government of Royal Kingdom of Saudi Arabia decided that Ahmadi’s from all over the world must not be allowed to perform the annual Pilgrimage to Mecca and Medina because they were considered as Non-Muslims……..

In Compliance with the Government’s decision, the Saudi Arabian Embassy in Nigeria refused bluntly in December of 1973 to allow Nigerian Ahmadis to perform Hajj in January of 1974.  A hue and a cry ensued as a result of this refusal and many statements and counter statements were made in the Nigerian Press.  The situation reached a point where I sincerely felt that the nation needed necessary information and guidance on the matter.  At this point, there were indications that certain people aimed at maneuvering the situation into a governmental confrontation between Nigeria and Saudi Arabia.

As as Ahmadi then, I was naturally displeased with the attitude of the Embassy.  But as a University teacher in the field of Arabic and Islamic studies I considered it a bounden duty to present the truth based on knowledge of Islam, …..

Dr. Balogan first wrote 
Dr. Baolgan was an Ahmadi until January of 1974, he unexpectedly wrote an essay vs. Ahmadiyya, we have produced much of it in the below.

1———“The fact that Ahmadis hid their true doctrine from the membership at large is] evident in the fact that when one of the young educated Nigerian Muslims, who originally invited the Movement here, went to Britain for further studies and thereby came in contact with Indian Ahmadis, who resided then in Britain, he studied them at first hand and returned home only to withdraw his membership of the Movement. This was the late al-Haj L. B. Agusto of blessed memory.” (Sunday Times, Nigeria, Jan. 20, 1974; Ibid., p. 2).

2———-“Even though Ahmadiyya has been in this country for close to sixty years, I make the bold to say that, up till now, the vast majority of the adherents of the organization, within both the Movement and the Mission, are still in the dark about the details of its teaching, as well as its purpose. For example, it was only very recently, when stiff opposition to Ahmadiyyah started to rear its head in this country, that certain high-ranking Ahmadis knew for the first time that Mirza Ghulam Ahmad claimed to be a Prophet.” (Sunday Times, Nigeria, Jan. 20, 1974; ibid., p. 3)“.

3———-“I could have raised all the points in this article with them (e.g. the Indo-Pakistani Ahmadi leadership) internally without any publicity; but experience has shown that such criticisms will automatically earn the critic either a long-term boycott or an outright excommunication. With any of these, no other member will be prepared to listen to him… I have stated my point of view, God is my witness, purely because of my awareness of the responsibility incumbent on me towards my fellow Nigerian Muslims in particular, and the world Muslims at large. My intention is not to oppose Ahmadiyyah; I have lived in it long enough to have a soft spot for it in my heart. But that notwithstanding, whenever a clash of opinion arises between Islam and Ahmadiyyah, it behooves me to declare for Islam without mincing words.” (Sunday Times, Nigeria, Jan. 20, 1974; ibid., p.17).

After Ahmadi’s were declared Non-Muslim by Pakistan he wrote
1—-“In my Childhood, I was brought up to revere the Indo-Pakistani Ahmadiyyah missionaries who guided and controlled our religious activities. When the mission came to our elders and, through the elders to us, we believed all that they told us in toto, because of the implicit confidence we had in them.

Their preaching appeared plausible to us and we accepted their arguments in good faith. They made references to Islamic books in order to substantiate their claims and we accepted the references without cross-checking them because of our confidence in them.

Their method was to alienate us against the orthodox Muslims in whom they found faults in the way they practiced Islam. The missionaries claimed to present “the true Islam” to us in the name of Ahmadiyyah.

They often impressed on us that the stiff opposition, which Ahmadis suffered in India before the partition and subsequently in Pakistan, was a conclusive proof of the truth of Ahmadiyyah. After all, no prophet is readily accepted in his own town or country. This also appeared plausible to us, hence we followed them with unalloyed confidence.” (Sunday Sketch, Nigeria, Sept. 29, 1974; Islam versus Ahmadiyyah in Nigeria, p. 85-86).

2———“My aim [in cross-checking the references offered by Ahmadi missionaries] was actually to strengthen myself against the gathering opposition to Ahmadiyyah. As a University scholar, I was conscious that my pronouncement in support of Ahmadiyyah must necessarily be backed with authentic references to Islamic sources.

In my cross-checking of the Ahmadiyyah missionaries’ references, however, my findings were rather disappointing.

Consequent upon my first article on the Ahmadiyyah problem in Nigeria (Sunday Times, 20 January 1974), the Ahmadiyyah Mission members wrote extensive rejoinders which gave me a further opportunity to examine, independently, more Ahmadiyyah claims and views than hitherto.

I must say, before God and man, that the more I scrutinized the claims and purported references for them, the more I discovered that the Ahmadiyyah Mission is deceiving the world and playing on the ignorance of many of their followers.

In many cases, they quote authors [scholars] who are explicitly opposed to Ahmadiyyah ideas; but so cleverly do they quote that they often give the impression that the authors support Ahmadiyyah views.

Examples of such distortions abound in the quotations made by Dr. Bhutta in his rejoinder (Sunday Sketch, 8 September 1974) to my article. It may interest the readers to know that Dr. Bhutta is himself a Pakistani Ahmadiyyah medical missionary.

It is only by going to the source references and reading what the Ahmadis had quoted within the context in which they are set that the reader, and the seeker after truth, will realize how much the Pakistani Ahmadiyyah missionaries try to deceive the world.” (Sunday Sketch, Nigeria, Sept. 29, 1974; ibid., p. 86-87).

3————“In order to buttress their claim about Khatam-un-Nabiyyin, the Ahmadis often quote the mystic Shaikh Muhyiddin Ibn ‘Arabi as saying, ‘The Prophethood that was terminated with the person of the Prophet of Allah(SAW) was no other than the Law-bearing Prophethood, and not Prophethood itself.’ (Futuhat al-Makkiyyah, Vol. II, p. 3)

This quoted statement appears on page 3 of the book, which contains over 700 pages. The book does not stop at the statement concerning the matter of Prophethood. On the contrary, it explains further at length, covering eleven pages, pages 252 to 262 inclusive, in the same volume, the different aspects of the Prophethood.

He says, among other things, that Prophethood exists among both animate and inanimate objects. With regard to human beings, he classified the Prophets into two: law-bearing prophets and follower prophets. He explains the functions of each category and concludes in both cases that, with the coming of the Prophet Muhammad, both categories have ceased to appear.

He says that what would remain for Muslims after Muhammad are speculators (Mujtahids) who would strive in their own different ways to explain the Shariah to the people according to their understanding of it. Such Mujtahids, he says, will NOT be called Prophets (Ibn Arabi, al-Futuhat al-Makkiyyah, Vol. II, pp. 254 and 255). This is certainly known to the Pakistani Ahmadi missionaries, but they hide it from their followers deliberately in order to entrench their own false idea on Prophethood…

Another example of the distortions by the Ahmadis for their selfish ends is contained in their official rejoinder to my article already mentioned.

On page 5, column 2, of Monday 11 February 1974 issues of The Truth, the Ahmadiyyah Mission quoted the following in support of the Prophethood of the Promised Messiah: ‘There is no discrepancy between the two, that he (the Messiah) will be a Prophet and a follower of the Holy Prophet(SAW) for the purpose of explaining the commandments of his Shariah, and to strengthen its way, even though he does so through his revelations.’ (Mirqat Sharh Miskat, Vol. 5, pg. 564)

This quotation has been extracted from the explanation of the Hadith in which the Prophet Muhammad had declared that there would be no other Prophet after him.

Indication. The Hadith, which is contained in Mishkat al Masabih, reports that the Messenger of God said to ‘Ali, ‘You are in the same position to me as Harun (Aaron) was to Musa (Moses): except that there is no prophet after me’. The Mishkat reports also that authentic books of Hadith are agreed on this tradition.

Now, in commenting on this authentic Hadith, Imam ‘Ali Qari, who was deceitfully quoted by Ahmadis, says:

“In the commentary of Muslim, some scholars say concerning his [the Prophet’s] statement ‘Except that there is no Prophet after me,’ that it is an indication that whenever ‘Isa b. Maryam [Jesus Christ] descends, he will descend as one of the arbitrators of this Community inviting people with the Law of Muhammad(SAW), and will not descend as a Prophet.I say that there is no inconsistency in his being a Prophet and being a follower to our Prophet(SAW) concerning the explanation of the rules of the Shariah and the improvement of his way even with revelation to him, as indicated by the saying of the Prophet: ‘If Moses were alive he would have no choice but to follow me.’

That is even though he is described as a Prophet and a Messenger; and in the absence of both of them (Prophethood and Messengership), there will not be any additional attainment.

Interpretation. So, the meaning is that there will not be any new Prophet after him because he is the Seal of all the Prophets that had gone before.

In it (the statement) is an allusion that, if there were to be a Prophet after him, it would have been ‘Ali; and it is not incompatible with what has clearly been related concerning the right of ‘Umar because the decision is hypothetical and suppositional.

It is as if he (the Prophet) says: ‘If there were to be a Prophet after me, a group of my Companions would have been Prophets; but there is no Prophet after me.’

This is the meaning of the Prophet’s(SAW) saying: ‘If Ibrahim had lived, he would have been a Prophet.’

As for the Hadith, which says, ‘The scholars of my Community are like the Israelites Prophets’, memorizers like Zurkashi, Asqalani, Damiri, and Suyuti have clearly said that is has no basis.”

This quotation is from the same book and on the same page referred to by the Ahmadiyyah Mission. That is: ‘Ali al-Qari, Mirqat al-Mafatih Sharh Mishkat al-Masabih, vol. 5, pg. 564.

It is clear from the quotation that the Mission has extracted what they thought would support their erroneous view from a commentary which, taken together, is explicitly opposed to the view. This is in order to give the impression that the author supports their idea.

In educated circles, such act is an errant distortion of an author’s view and thought. It contradicts the international law of copyright. It is, indeed, unacceptable as well as unbecoming of a mission that wants itself to be taken seriously.

From the Islamic point of view also, it is an abominable act. Consider, for example, Quran 2:59 [also 7:162], which says, “The transgressors changed the statement from that which was made to them; so We sent a pestilence from heaven upon the transgressors, for their having gone astray.’ A food for thought indeed for the Ahmadis!” (Sunday Sketch, Nigeria, Sept. 29, 1974; ibid., p. 91-95)

4——–“Furthermore, instead of being crossed with me, calling me names and making all sorts of conjectures about me because of my renunciation of Ahmadiyyah, let the Nigerian Ahmadis take my exposition to their Pakistani missionaries for verification or denial.

Assertions. If they deny my assertions, then demand from them the Arabic books (not Urdu translations) from which they took their quotations. Then, let independent Arabic scholars translate the relevant sections within their context.

If I am proved wrong, let my father reject and disown me, and let the Ahmadis collectively curse and “crucify” me. But if I am proved right, then it becomes incumbent on all Nigerian Ahmadis, including my relations, both by blood and affinity, to reconsider their association with Ahmadiyyah, pray fervently to God Almighty as I have done to show them the way of Islam and help them to follow it.” (Sunday Sketch, Sept. 29, 1974; ibid., p. 96).

Nigerian Ahmadis responded to Dr. Balogan
On page 5, column 2, of Monday 11 February 1974 issues of The Truth, the Ahmadiyyah Mission quoted the following in support of the Prophethood of the Promised Messiah: ‘There is no discrepancy between the two, that he (the Messiah) will be a Prophet and a follower of the Holy Prophet(SAW) for the purpose of explaining the commandments of his Shariah, and to strengthen its way, even though he does so through his revelations.’ (Mirqat Sharh Miskat, Vol. 5, pg. 564)

Mr. Al haj A. S. Olatunde vs. Ahmadiyya missionaries in Nigeria
“For some months now, I have been quiet. My quietness has come as a result of a very serious study I embarked upon in connection with a burning question.

The question began with an article published by Dr. Ismail Balogun of the University of Ibadan a few months ago. It concerned the belief of the Ahmadiyya Jamat that the founder of the organization was a kind of a prophet.

Dr. Ismail Balogun, who was born into the Ahmadiyya Community, advanced cogent arguments and reasons to support his rebuttal of the claim of Mirza Ghulam Ahmad to Prophethood and the need to abandon the name Ahmadiyya to denote a class of Muslims.

A series of rejoinders came from many well-known Ahmadis. The most significant thing about the rejoinders is that they are unconvincing! They have been based on shifty premises.

Dr. Ismail Balogun came out again with a final reply to all the rejoinders. His final reply contained incontrovertible facts from various books of Islam and lexicons to support his stand that after the holy Prophet Muhammad there had not been and there would never be another prophet of any kind, at least in so far as Islam is concerned.

I want to make my personal stand clear now. I support Dr. Ismail Balogun. I agree entirely with his findings. And with him I declare that Muhammad is the last Prophet of God.

I also declare that I am not an Ahmadi. It is true that I have been closely connected with the Ahmadiyya Mission for many years. During my period of association with them, the question of another prophet after Muhammad was never a point of interest in our discussions.

I am sure with this, nobody will be in doubt any more about my stand. I want to remind all Muslims of an incident toward the close of the glorious life of the Holy Prophet Muhammad. It was the parting sermon he delivered on the Arafat in his last pilgrimage.

He said: “I am leaving unto you two noble things. So long as you will cling to them, you will never go astray. One of them is the Book of Allah and the other is the Tradition of His Apostle. Let him that is present tell unto him that is absent. Haply he that shall be told may remember better than he who has heard it.”

With me, the Book of Allah and the Sunnah of His Prophet are sufficient. I am a Muslim and anything that will tarnish my Islam is rejected with all my heart.

If there is any person or any group of persons who have been showing me any favor because they thought that I was an Ahmadi, I pray, they should now withhold or withdraw their favors. I shall be satisfied with whatever favors it will please Allah to bestow on me as a Muslim, pure and simple. May Allah open our hearts to His Truth. Amen.” (Daily Sketch, Friday, Nov. 8, 1974; ibid. p. 118-119).

Dr. Balogan, the famous African-Ahmadi who left Ahmadiyya in 1974

http://www.islamawareness.net/Deviant/Qadiyani/balogun.html

Why did I Renounce Ahmadiyyah

by Dr. Ismail A. B. Balogun
A former high level Ahmadi

“…I must say, before God and man, that the more I scrutinized the claims and purported
references for them, the more I discovered that the Ahmadiyyah Mission is deceiving
the world and playing on the ignorance of many of their followers.”

In a series of articles published in Nigeria during 1974, Dr. Ismail A. B. Balogun, a high level Ahmadi leader, refuted the tenets of Ahmadiyyah and publicly denounced the Movement he had been born and raised in. A Professor of Islamic and Arabic Studies at the University of Ibadan, Algeria, Dr. Balogun had dedicated his life to the cause of Ahmadiyyah and had raised through the ranks to become a top spokesman and ambassador for the Movement. Throughout the years, his well articulate and emotional speeches had motivated many young Ahmadis. Similarly, his public departure and the commotion and debates that pursued caused many educated individuals to realize the truth and abandon Ahmadiyyah.

Allah accept the repentance of those who do evil in ignorance and repent soon afterwards; to them will Allah turn in mercy: For Allah is full of knowledge and wisdom.
(The holy Quran, An-Nisa, 4:17)

Subsequently, Dr. Balogun documented the reasons for his withdrawal from the Movement and included some of the ensuing debates in a book entitled “Islam versus Ahmadiyyah in Nigeria”. In this book, Dr. Balogun disclosed how he, as many other highly educated individuals, had blindly accepted Ahmadiyyah out of loyalty to his parents, misinformation disseminated by the Ahmadi leadership, divisive methods of the Indo-Pakistani Ahmadi missionaries, and other subjective reasons having more to do with propaganda and cultural habits than the truthfulness of any movement.

Dr. Balogun recounts his upbringing and his blind faith in the Indo-Pakistani Ahmadi missionaries in the following passage:

“In my Childhood, I was brought up to revere the Indo-Pakistani Ahmadiyyah missionaries who guided and controlled our religious activities. When the mission came to our elders and, through the elders to us, we believed all that they told us in toto, because of the implicit confidence we had in them.Their preaching appeared plausible to us and we accepted their arguments in good faith. They made references to Islamic books in order to substantiate their claims and we accepted the references without cross-checking them because of our confidence in them.

Their method was to alienate us against the orthodox Muslims in whom they found faults in the way they practiced Islam. The missionaries claimed to present “the true Islam” to us in the name of Ahmadiyyah.

They often impressed on us that the stiff opposition, which Ahmadis suffered in India before the partition and subsequently in Pakistan, was a conclusive proof of the truth of Ahmadiyyah. After all, no prophet is readily accepted in his own town or country. This also appeared plausible to us, hence we followed them with unalloyed confidence.” (Sunday Sketch, Nigeria, Sept. 29, 1974; Islam versus Ahmadiyyah in Nigeria, p. 85-86)

Over a quarter of century ago, Dr. Balogun had accurately identified the strategy employed by high level Ahmadi missionaries to misguide the uninformed. Not only the missionaries do not publicize a complete picture of their doctrine and history, but also they distort the teachings of Islam and attempt to exasperate and capitalize upon sectarian division among few ignorant Muslims.

Dr. Balogun testified:

“Even though Ahmadiyya has been in this country for close to sixty years, I make the bold to say that, up till now, the vast majority of the adherents of the organization, within both the Movement and the Mission, are still in the dark about the details of its teaching, as well as its purpose. For example, it was only very recently, when stiff opposition to Ahmadiyyah started to rear its head in this country, that certain high-ranking Ahmadis knew for the first time that Mirza Ghulam Ahmad claimed to be a Prophet.” (Sunday Times, Nigeria, Jan. 20, 1974; ibid., p. 3)“[The fact that Ahmadis hid their true doctrine from the membership at large is] evident in the fact that when one of the young educated Nigerian Muslims, who originally invited the Movement here, went to Britain for further studies and thereby came in contact with Indian Ahmadis, who resided then in Britain, he studied them at first hand and returned home only to withdraw his membership of the Movement. This was the late al-Haj L. B. Agusto of blessed memory.” (Sunday Times, Nigeria, Jan. 20, 1974; Ibid., p. 2)

Indeed, since its very inception, the Ahmadi leadership has relied upon the well-proven methods of the Christian Missionaries to alienate the uninformed individuals from knowledgeable and sincere Muslims and selfishly increase their membership. They know only too well that the descendants of individuals somehow tricked into joining their organization are generally less likely to renounce their membership, even after they discover the truth.

Truly they found their fathers on the wrong Path;
So they (too) were rushed down on their footsteps!
And truly before them, many of the ancients went astray;-

(The holy Quran, As-Saaffat, 37:69-71)

Dr. Balogun records that, when in 1974, the Pakistani Government and the Muslim World League both declared the Ahmadiyyah to be a non-Muslim group, he set out in earnest to defend the Movement he was born into and prove its truthfulness. However, his scholarly and thorough research into the teachings of Ahmadi leadership untangled a disturbing web of deceit and left him with no alternative but to denounce the Mission. This finding is even more significant since Dr. Balogun, even though a high level Ahmadi and a Professor of Islamic Studies, had himself been kept in the dark for over forty years.

Regarding the authenticity of the alleged references and interpretations provided by the Ahmadi Missionaries, from the Holy Quran, books of Hadith, and the writings of Muslim personalities, to lend the appearance of support to their various claims, Dr. Balogun wrote:

“My aim [in cross-checking the references offered by Ahmadi missionaries] was actually to strengthen myself against the gathering opposition to Ahmadiyyah. As a University scholar, I was conscious that my pronouncement in support of Ahmadiyyah must necessarily be backed with authentic references to Islamic sources.In my cross-checking of the Ahmadiyyah missionaries’ references, however, my findings were rather disappointing.

Consequent upon my first article on the Ahmadiyyah problem in Nigeria (Sunday Times, 20 January 1974), the Ahmadiyyah Mission members wrote extensive rejoinders which gave me a further opportunity to examine, independently, more Ahmadiyyah claims and views than hitherto.

I must say, before God and man, that the more I scrutinized the claims and purported references for them, the more I discovered that the Ahmadiyyah Mission is deceiving the world and playing on the ignorance of many of their followers.

In many cases, they quote authors [scholars] who are explicitly opposed to Ahmadiyyah ideas; but so cleverly do they quote that they often give the impression that the authors support Ahmadiyyah views.

Examples of such distortions abound in the quotations made by Dr. Bhutta in his rejoinder (Sunday Sketch, 8 September 1974) to my article. It may interest the readers to know that Dr. Bhutta is himself a Pakistani Ahmadiyyah medical missionary.

It is only by going to the source references and reading what the Ahmadis had quoted within the context in which they are set that the reader, and the seeker after truth, will realize how much the Pakistani Ahmadiyyah missionaries try to deceive the world.” (Sunday Sketch, Nigeria, Sept. 29, 1974; ibid., p. 86-87)

In support of his statements, Dr. Balogun researched, exposed, and refuted many of the deceptive and false arguments used by the Ahmadi missionaries to deceive the uninformed. For instance, he wrote:

“In order to buttress their claim about Khatam-un-Nabiyyin, the Ahmadis often quote the mystic Shaikh Muhyiddin Ibn ‘Arabi as saying, ‘The Prophethood that was terminated with the person of the Prophet of Allah(SAW) was no other than the Law-bearing Prophethood, and not Prophethood itself.’ (Futuhat al-Makkiyyah, Vol. II, p. 3)This quoted statement appears on page 3 of the book, which contains over 700 pages. The book does not stop at the statement concerning the matter of Prophethood. On the contrary, it explains further at length, covering eleven pages, pages 252 to 262 inclusive, in the same volume, the different aspects of the Prophethood.

He says, among other things, that Prophethood exists among both animate and inanimate objects. With regard to human beings, he classified the Prophets into two: law-bearing prophets and follower prophets. He explains the functions of each category and concludes in both cases that, with the coming of the Prophet Muhammad, both categories have ceased to appear.

He says that what would remain for Muslims after Muhammad are speculators (Mujtahids) who would strive in their own different ways to explain the Shariah to the people according to their understanding of it. Such Mujtahids, he says, will NOT be called Prophets (Ibn Arabi, al-Futuhat al-Makkiyyah, Vol. II, pp. 254 and 255). This is certainly known to the Pakistani Ahmadi missionaries, but they hide it from their followers deliberately in order to entrench their own false idea on Prophethood…

Another example of the distortions by the Ahmadis for their selfish ends is contained in their official rejoinder to my article already mentioned.

On page 5, column 2, of Monday 11 February 1974 issues of The Truth, the Ahmadiyyah Mission quoted the following in support of the Prophethood of the Promised Messiah: ‘There is no discrepancy between the two, that he (the Messiah) will be a Prophet and a follower of the Holy Prophet(SAW) for the purpose of explaining the commandments of his Shariah, and to strengthen its way, even though he does so through his revelations.’ (Mirqat Sharh Miskat, Vol. 5, pg. 564)

This quotation has been extracted from the explanation of the Hadith in which the Prophet Muhammad had declared that there would be no other Prophet after him.

Indication. The Hadith, which is contained in Mishkat al Masabih, reports that the Messenger of God said to ‘Ali, ‘You are in the same position to me as Harun (Aaron) was to Musa (Moses): except that there is no prophet after me’. The Mishkat reports also that authentic books of Hadith are agreed on this tradition.

Now, in commenting on this authentic Hadith, Imam ‘Ali Qari, who was deceitfully quoted by Ahmadis, says:

“In the commentary of Muslim, some scholars say concerning his [the Prophet’s] statement ‘Except that there is no Prophet after me,’ that it is an indication that whenever ‘Isa b. Maryam [Jesus Christ] descends, he will descend as one of the arbitrators of this Community inviting people with the Law of Muhammad(SAW), and will not descend as a Prophet.I say that there is no inconsistency in his being a Prophet and being a follower to our Prophet(SAW) concerning the explanation of the rules of the Shariah and the improvement of his way even with revelation to him, as indicated by the saying of the Prophet: ‘If Moses were alive he would have no choice but to follow me.’

That is even though he is described as a Prophet and a Messenger; and in the absence of both of them (Prophethood and Messengership), there will not be any additional attainment.

This is the meaning of the Prophet’s(SAW) saying: ‘If Ibrahim had lived, he would have been a Prophet.’

As for the Hadith, which says, ‘The scholars of my Community are like the Israelites Prophets’, memorizers like Zurkashi, Asqalani, Damiri, and Suyuti have clearly said that is has no basis.”

This quotation is from the same book and on the same page referred to by the Ahmadiyyah Mission. That is: ‘Ali al-Qari, Mirqat al-Mafatih Sharh Mishkat al-Masabih, vol. 5, pg. 564.

It is clear from the quotation that the Mission has extracted what they thought would support their erroneous view from a commentary which, taken together, is explicitly opposed to the view. This is in order to give the impression that the author supports their idea.

In educated circles, such act is an errant distortion of an author’s view and thought. It contradicts the international law of copyright. It is, indeed, unacceptable as well as unbecoming of a mission that wants itself to be taken seriously.

From the Islamic point of view also, it is an abominable act. Consider, for example, Quran 2:59 [also 7:162], which says, “The transgressors changed the statement from that which was made to them; so We sent a pestilence from heaven upon the transgressors, for their having gone astray.’ A food for thought indeed for the Ahmadis!” (Sunday Sketch, Nigeria, Sept. 29, 1974; ibid., p. 91-95)

It is those who do not believe in the Signs of Allah that forge falsehood: it is they who lie!
(The Holy Quran, An-Nahl, 16:105)

No sooner had Dr. Balogun unearth such evidence and discovered that the doctrine of Ahmadiyyah was contrary to the authentic teachings of Islam, that he and many others abandoned the Mission and embraced Islam. These fortunate individuals were blessed with the capacity to differentiate the Truth from Falsehood and the sincere faith to prefer Allah(SWT) and His Messenger(SAW) to the position, prestige, and life-style they had achieved within the Organization. Truly, they were the recipients of guidance from Allah(SWT).

Subsequent to such public expositions, Dr. Balogun became the subject of personal attacks by many senior Ahmadi missionaries. For instance, Molvi Ajmal Shahid, then the Amir of Ahmadiyyah movement in Nigeria, provided an extremely short reply in which he expressed his dismay at the “spiritual death of a brother (ibid., p. 97)” and Moulvi Naseem Saifi, the chief Ahmadiyyah missionary for West Africa, confirmed that Dr. Balogun had been very close and high in the administration and expressed his sadness that Dr. Balogun had abandoned Ahmadiyyah in favor of Islam (ibid., p. 99); other Ahmadi missionaries questioned his public withdrawal and, in an attempt at damage control, advanced a number of unbecoming and unproved accusations. In clarification, Dr. Balogun responded:

“I could have raised all the points in this article with them (e.g. the Indo-Pakistani Ahmadi leadership) internally without any publicity; but experience has shown that such criticisms will automatically earn the critic either a long-term boycott or an outright excommunication. With any of these, no other member will be prepared to listen to him… I have stated my point of view, God is my witness, purely because of my awareness of the responsibility incumbent on me towards my fellow Nigerian Muslims in particular, and the world Muslims at large. My intention is not to oppose Ahmadiyyah; I have lived in it long enough to have a soft spot for it in my heart. But that notwithstanding, whenever a clash of opinion arises between Islam and Ahmadiyyah, it behooves me to declare for Islam without mincing words.” (Sunday Times, Nigeria, Jan. 20, 1974; ibid., p.17)“Furthermore, instead of being crossed with me, calling me names and making all sorts of conjectures about me because of my renunciation of Ahmadiyyah, let the Nigerian Ahmadis take my exposition to their Pakistani missionaries for verification or denial.

Assertions. If they deny my assertions, then demand from them the Arabic books (not Urdu translations) from which they took their quotations. Then, let independent Arabic scholars translate the relevant sections within their context.

If I am proved wrong, let my father reject and disown me, and let the Ahmadis collectively curse and “crucify” me. But if I am proved right, then it becomes incumbent on all Nigerian Ahmadis, including my relations, both by blood and affinity, to reconsider their association with Ahmadiyyah, pray fervently to God Almighty as I have done to show them the way of Islam and help them to follow it.” (Sunday Sketch, Sept. 29, 1974; ibid., p. 96)

Naturally, the personal attacks levied against Dr. Balogun had nothing to do with the issue at hand and had been orchestrated solely to confuse the naive. In truth, the deceptive methods of the Mission had been exposed and independently verified by a number of individuals. The damage done to the Mission was so great that it had to disband. Many Ahmadis reorganized under the name of “Anwar-ul-Islam Movement” and rejected the unIslamic doctrines which the Ahmadi leadership and missionaries had propagated and sustained through their distortions and misrepresentations of the authentic teachings of Islam (Daily Times, Monday, Nov. 25, 1974; ibid., p. 121). May Allah(SWT) guide every sincere Ahmadi to Islam.

Among the individuals, who witnessed the written public debates between Dr. Balogun and the high level Ahmadi missionaries and recognized the falsehood of the Mission, was a well-known gentleman by the name of Mr. Alhaj A. S. Olatunde. To save face and mislead their naive followers, Ahmadi missionaries apparently had began a rumor that Br. Olatunde had recognized their “truth” and accepted Ahmadiyyah!  In response, Br. Olatunde issued a public statement, which is reproduced below:

“For some months now, I have been quiet. My quietness has come as a result of a very serious study I embarked upon in connection with a burning question.The question began with an article published by Dr. Ismail Balogun of the University of Ibadan a few months ago. It concerned the belief of the Ahmadiyya Jamat that the founder of the organization was a kind of a prophet.

Dr. Ismail Balogun, who was born into the Ahmadiyya Community, advanced cogent arguments and reasons to support his rebuttal of the claim of Mirza Ghulam Ahmad to Prophethood and the need to abandon the name Ahmadiyya to denote a class of Muslims.

A series of rejoinders came from many well-known Ahmadis. The most significant thing about the rejoinders is that they are unconvincing! They have been based on shifty premises.

Dr. Ismail Balogun came out again with a final reply to all the rejoinders. His final reply contained incontrovertible facts from various books of Islam and lexicons to support his stand that after the holy Prophet Muhammad there had not been and there would never be another prophet of any kind, at least in so far as Islam is concerned.

I want to make my personal stand clear now. I support Dr. Ismail Balogun. I agree entirely with his findings. And with him I declare that Muhammad is the last Prophet of God.

I also declare that I am not an Ahmadi. It is true that I have been closely connected with the Ahmadiyya Mission for many years. During my period of association with them, the question of another prophet after Muhammad was never a point of interest in our discussions.

I am sure with this, nobody will be in doubt any more about my stand. I want to remind all Muslims of an incident toward the close of the glorious life of the Holy Prophet Muhammad. It was the parting sermon he delivered on the Arafat in his last pilgrimage.

He said: “I am leaving unto you two noble things. So long as you will cling to them, you will never go astray. One of them is the Book of Allah and the other is the Tradition of His Apostle. Let him that is present tell unto him that is absent. Haply he that shall be told may remember better than he who has heard it.”

With me, the Book of Allah and the Sunnah of His Prophet are sufficient. I am a Muslim and anything that will tarnish my Islam is rejected with all my heart.

If there is any person or any group of persons who have been showing me any favor because they thought that I was an Ahmadi, I pray, they should now withhold or withdraw their favors. I shall be satisfied with whatever favors it will please Allah to bestow on me as a Muslim, pure and simple. May Allah open our hearts to His Truth. Amen.” (Daily Sketch, Friday, Nov. 8, 1974; ibid. p. 118-119)

Obviously, a movement whose very leaders and founders have used such deceptive methods to misguide the uninformed, for a hundred years, can not be taken seriously nor viewed as a divine organization. Each one of the arguments Ahmadi leaders have advanced in support of their organization is similarly based on deceptive claims or pure conjecture and has been solely invented to keep their unfortunate followers confused and entrapped.

We hope that individuals who have mistakenly followed Ahmadiyyah reconsider their standing in the light of all the evidence uncovered by Dr. Balogun. Should those, who have been touched by the miracles of the Holy Quran and the teachings of the last Prophet Muhammad(SAW), exhibit loyalty and obedience to Allah(SWT) and His last Messenger(SAW) or to individuals whose deception and falsehood has been continually exposed?

Those who reject Allah, hinder (men) from the Path of Allah, and resist the Messenger, after Guidance has been clearly shown to them, will not injure Allah in the least, but He will make their deeds of no effect.
(The holy Quran, Muhammad, 47:32)

The history of #ahmadiyya in Sierra Leone

Intro
By 2020, we estimate that there are barely 10k Ahmadi’s in all of Sierra Leone. This is based on the amount of missionaries that they have working and the amount of Qadiani-mosques. The Amir and Missionary-in-charge is Maulana Saeed-ur-Rahman. It is unclear as to how many Ahmadi mullahs are working underneath him (we have counted about 10, of which, the majority are working at Jamia). However, his english is terrible. It is also unclear when the first Ahmadiyya place of worship was built. It seems to be Baitul Sabuh, which is in the Kissy Dockyard area of Freetown.
_____________________________________________________________________________________________
Ahmadiyya places of worship in Sierra Leone

It’s unclear where and when their first place of worship was built. Per Ahmadiyya sources, it seems to have been in Freetown, the name of the place is Baitul Sabuh.

There are only 7 additional places of worship in the entire country, these are all very small and can only hold 50-70 worshippers:

_____________________________________________________________________________________________
How many Ahmadi mullahs are currently working in Sierra Leone? 

It seems that there are just a few Ahmadi mullahs working in the whole country. The Amir and Missionary-in-charge is Maulana Saeed-ur-Rahman. By 1987, there were only 9 Pakistani mullah’s working the entire country. In Kenema, Sierra Leone, Ahmadiyya sources tell us that another Ahmadi mullah is also working, his name is Maulvi Muneer Hussain. Mubarak Ahmad Ghumman is the principal at the Ahmadi missionary training center (Jamia). He would be Ahmadi mullah #3. Ibrahim Ahmad Keifala is Ahmadi mullah #4, he works at the Jamia. Mohammad Moris Kamara is #5. Alimamy Sesay is #6, he is also the first ever local Sierra Leonian Ahmadi who became a missionary for the Qadiani’s. Sulaiman H. Kamara is #7. Zafir Usama is #8 (at Jamia right now). Abdul Hadi Qureshi is another teacher at Jamia, he is #9.
_____________________________________________________________________________________________
Jamia in Sierra Leone

The Ahmadiyya missionary training center was started in 1987 in Bo. It was basically in the mosque, the students slept on the floor and etc. It was closed by 1993, due to a lack of students and civil war. It was re-opened in 2005. Maulvi Mohammad Yusuf Khalid Dorwie how was shahid missionary as a principle of Jamia. And the interest about Jamia started growing and within one two years it was grew up to fifty students and Maulana Dorwie sahib was the principle and Jamia was still in masjid nasir near there is a small building that was the boarding house but it was not purposely build as a boarding house. And the veranda and sometime the gallery of the mosque was use for the classes. So, then it was sad news for sierra Leone and history of Sierra Leone Maulvi Dorwie sahib he passed away in 2007.

They had been using the Ahmadiyya Mosque in Bo, also called Nasir hall or Masjid Nasar. 
maulvi Mubarak Ahmad Ghuman Sahib who was already in Jamia as a teacher as an acting principle. Then later than His holy ness Khalaifatul Masih the fifth send a missionary from Pakistan Maulvi Dawood Abid sahib as a principle and in his time this historical work was done that now finally Jamia moved from Masjid Nasir or Nasir mosque central Mosque BO to the secondary school the assembly hall. Assembly hall was divided in three classrooms and there Jamia started taking place it started taking shape of the Jamia now. And that second historical also improvement and development happened that the boarding house of secondary school was empty dew to some reasons local reasons and it was just there so we decided that we should move the students from Nasir Mosque Majid Nasir to the boarding house and that boarding house was purposely build as a boarding house. Then in 2010 dawood sahib was transfer to Jamia Ahmadiyya Uk and Mirza Masroor Ahmad graciously appointed Maulana Mubarak Ahmad Ghuman sahib as a principle. Presently Jamia staff consist of five central mubhalghin and three local missionaries we have academic block, boarding, mess, library, multipurpose hall, mosque and play ground. Students get admission with the recommendation of their regional missionaries. Recommended applicants are interviewed by a panel of Missionaries and eligible students are selected and sent for Medical checkup. Those who successfully pass all these stages get admission in Jamia for a course of four-year.

_____________________________________________________________________________________________
1916

The earliest history of the Ahmadiyya Community in Sierra Leone can be traced to the year of 1916, during WW-1. In that year at least six people are said to have conveyed their adherence to the Ahmadiyya faith, after being influenced by the circulation of Ahmadiyya literature in Sierra Leone from neighbouring West African nations (See Fisher, page 121).
_____________________________________________________________________________________________
1921

Nayyar sailed from London to Freetown, in Sierra Leone. While in Freetown Nayyar delivered a lecture at a mosque in Fourah Bay, in the east end of the city at the request of the city’s chief Imam (See Fisher, page 121). He tried to convert the imam and his adherents and failed.

_____________________________________________________________________________________________
1937

Maulvi Nazir Ahmad Ali was sent to the Gold coast (Ghana) by his Khalifa in 1929, he stayed at worked until 1933 (see Fisher). His real name was Nazir Ahmad. He was a sickly man and always spit blood. He had to be quarantined many times while traveling. He was sent again to the Gold Coast (Ghana) by the Khalifa in 1936. He stayed for one year. In 1937, he moved over to Freetown, Sierra Leone, and thus became the first ever permanent Ahmadi mullah in Sierra Leone. He seems to have died in Sierra Leone in 1954 (see Fisher). While he was in Ghana in 1936, he seems to have worked with Al Hajj Fadl-ul-Rahman Hakim for a short while. He was given the title of Ali in 1954, after his death.
_____________________________________________________________________________________________
1939

In 1939, Ali transferred to Baomahun, a flourishing gold mining town, south of Bo in the Eastern Province of Sierra Leone. Multiple reasons have been postulated for this move. It has been suggested that a Syrian trader in Baomahun wrote a letter to Ali after having read Ahmadiyya literature. In another instance, Droman, a vice-chief, invited Ali to Baomahun. Nevertheless, Ali was welcomed as a renowned preacher, as his fame grew across the country. Soon after his arrival, he initiated his preaching efforts inviting people to accept the message of Mirza Ghulam Ahmad as the Imam Mahdi. During this period a prevalent belief in Sierra Leone was that the appearance of the Mahdi would be announced by the beating of great drums, as a result of which the nonbelievers will perish, which Ali interpreted as a parable. Soon, Baomahun developed into a full-fledged headquarters of the Ahmadiyya missionary activities in Sierra Leone, as many people joined the Community.

As Baomahun was a mining town, its gold was gradually exhausted, and thus its future was bound to be threatened. This led to two important consequences. The dispersion of its inhabitants, many of whom were Ahmadi Muslims, led to the spread of Ahmadiyya teachings across towns and villages of the country. On the other hand, the Ahmadiyya headquarters had to be relocated for which Bo was conveniently selected.
_____________________________________________________________________________________________
1940

During the 1940s, Ali made multiple expeditions across the country. One notable journey was towards the east, as a consequence of which two of the most prominent people became Ahmadi Muslims. In Boajibu, Ali met Khalil Gamanga, a Paramount Chief of the Kenema District. Gamanga soon accepted Ahmadiyya and made notable contributions to the faith in the country. In Fala, Ali confronted with Qasim, Chief of Baama and a leading diamond magnate.

_____________________________________________________________________________________________
1948

In 1948, Ahmadiyya finally found a noticeable foothold in Freetown where a mission house was erected.

In 1954 Ali made his third and final journey to Sierra Leone. He died in the country on 19 May 1954. By this time, Ali was the only Pakistani Ahmadi to have given the majority of his working life to West Africa.
_____________________________________________________________________________________________
1949–1956

Muhammad Ibrahim Khalil (1901-75) was a missionary in Freetown from 1949 to 1956. He built the mosque 60 years ago single-highhandedly with meager resources of the community. He left Qadian with 12 missionaries all wearing green turbans, headed for Europe. For a while he was station in Sicily. later stationed in Sierra Leone. He was called Papa Ibrahim by native people.

Mirza Tahir Ahmad and #ahmadis in Ghana working for the dictator Jerry John Rawlings

Intro
Watch my video on this.
In Ghana, like many other countries, the Ahmadiyya Movement was political. In 1997, Mirza Tahir Ahmad admitted that Ahmadi’s had worked in the election process of the famous dictator Jerry John Rawlings in 1992 and 1996. Mirza Tahir Ahmad also admitted that the fake opposition party of 1992 and 1996 were led by undercover #ahmadi’s. In this era, Mirza Tahir Ahmad lied about the amount of converts in Ghana was extensive.

We estimate that there are about 5000 #ahmadis in all of Ghana by 2020. Most of these people have converted to Ahmadiyya through the Ahmadiyya schools, which also doubles as a  mosque. By 1958, there seems to be only one Ahmadiyya mosque in the entire country (see Foreign Missions). However, the same book lies and claims that there were 100+ mosques controlled by the Ahmadiyya community. However, there were only 1-2 Ahmadi mullahs working the entire country, thus, its a lie. Even today, in 2020, Ahmadiyya sources purposely inflate the amount of mosques which are under ahmadiyya control. We estimate no more than 20 Ahmadiyya mosques in the entire country, and most of the worshippers aren’t even Ahmadi.

In this video, Mirza Tahir Ahmad talks about taking jewelry from women as chanda, so sick!!!

He also admits that intelligence officers from Ghana would seek the advice from the Khalifa.
_____________________________________________________________________________________________Mirza Tahir Ahmad lies and claims to have had more than 200,000 converts from Ghana. Mirza Tahir Ahmad claims that many Ghanian’s working in government were Ahmadi. He mentions:

1. The speaker of the assembly
2. opposition party leader
3. Deputy Speaker
4. Defense minister
5. Chairman of the ruling party
6. important commissions

The history of Ahmadiyya in Ghana

Intro
Watch my video on this here.
We estimate that there are about 5000 #ahmadis in all of Ghana by 2020. Most of these people have converted to Ahmadiyya through the Ahmadiyya schools, which also doubles as a  mosque. By 1958, there seems to be only one Ahmadiyya mosque in the entire country (see Foreign Missions). However, the same book lies and claims that there were 100+ mosques controlled by the Ahmadiyya community. However, there were only 1-2 Ahmadi mullahs working the entire country, thus, its a lie. Even today, in 2020, Ahmadiyya sources purposely inflate the amount of mosques which are under ahmadiyya control. We estimate no more than 20 Ahmadiyya mosques in the entire country, and most of the worshippers aren’t even Ahmadi.

In 1997, Mirza Tahir Ahmad confesses that from 1974 to 1991, Ghana would report barely 300 converts per year. He then lies and claims that 200,000 people joined Ahmadiyya from Ghana in 1996. He also confesses to the world how the Ghanian government has been speaking to him behind the scenes for many years. He also revealed how many Ahmadi’s were used in the 1992 elections of Ghana and thus changed the election.
_____________________________________________________________________________________________
Ahmadiyya mosques in Ghana

It seems that the first ever Ahmadiyya place of worship is in Saltpond, ahmadiyya sources tell us that it was built in 1949. A picture of it was posted in Foreign Missions. By 1958, there was only one Ahmadiyya mosque. There was a mission house in Accra and in Wa some Muslim mosques may have been taken over.

By 1963, there were 3 areas wherein Ahmadiyya had created communities. First, among the Fante Muslims who were mostly in Saltpond and Accra. In the Kumasi area, Ahmadi’s have gotten converts from Christianity and Islam. Ahmadiyya barely converted any pagans in all of Africa. The 3rd area was in the North-west in Wa. In Wa, there was lots of Muslims who opposed the injection of the Ahmadi’s, however, the British government allowed it and lots of Muslims got converted to Ahmadiyya.

Fisher tells us that by 1963, there were 17 Ahmadiyya circuits, wherein 1 African-imam was places in each circuit as imam. These were imam’s without proper training, Nazir Ahmad Mubasher (1910-1997) would approve people as he deemed fit. The Pakistani-Ahmadi missionaries were like account managers and managed from the headquarters and also made trips to the different jamaats.

—1963–The Ahmadiyya mosque at Saltpond exists. It seems to be the first ever ahmadiyya mosque.

—1970—Mirza Nasir Ahmad inaugurated the Ahmadiyya Mosque in Mangoase. However, the mosque doesn’t get fully built until 1988.

—1980—Mirza Nasir Ahmad inaugurated the Ahmadiyya mosque in Accra (see Ahmadiyya Mosques Around the World).

—1980—Mirza Nasir Ahmad inaugurated the Ahmadiyya mosque in Essiam (see Ahmadiyya Mosques Around the World).

—1988, Mirza Tahir Ahmad inaugurated the Ahmadiyya mosque in Mangoase, which had been under construction for 17 years.

_____________________________________________________________________________________________
Ahmadiyya missionaries in Ghana

In 1936, Nazir Ahmad Mubasher (1910-1997) was sent to Ghana by the second Khalifa. He went back and forth from Qadiani to Ghana and eventually Rabwah to Ghana. By 1961, he was still the Ahmadiyya Amir and missionary in charge. Fisher tells us that there were barely 3 Pakistani-Ahmadi missionaries working in Ghana in 1963, they were all managed by Maulvi Naseem Saifi.

By 2020, it seems that there are barely 3-4 Ahmadiyya missionaries working in the entire country. There could be more, however, those would only be employed as teachers, not imam’s.  Fisher tells us that by 1963, there were 17 Ahmadiyya circuits, wherein 1 African-imam was places in each circuit as imam. These were imam’s without proper training, Nazir Ahmad Mubasher (1910-1997) would approve people as he deemed fit. The Pakistani-Ahmadi missionaries were like account managers and managed from the headquarters and also made trips to the different jamaats.

The Amir and Missionary In-charge is Maulana Alhaj Noor Mohammed Bin Salih. It is unclear how many Ahmadiyya missionaries are working underneath him.
_____________________________________________________________________________________________
1921

Nayyar sailed from London to Freetown, in Sierra Leone. While in Freetown Nayyar delivered a lecture at a mosque in Fourah Bay, in the east end of the city at the request of the city’s chief Imam.[6] Although at least six people are said to have conveyed their adherence to the Ahmadiyya movement in Sierra Leone as early as 1916 after being influenced by the circulation of Ahmadiyya literature from neighbouring West African nations, no conversions were recorded following Nayyar’s visit.[6]

After the brief Hiatus in Freetown, Nayyar continued towards Saltpond in the Gold Coast where he arrived in March 1921.[3][4] Following a lecture, the Fante community “believed there and then”, following which an oath of allegiance was held.[2] In the history of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community, Mahdi Appah, the leader of this group, is regarded as the first Ghanaian to become an Ahmadi Muslim.[7] Despite resistance from northern clerics, the Fante Muslims converted en masse, giving immediate rise to the Ahmadiyya movement in the region.[3][4] Nayyar also toured Accra and Kumase.[5] Having established the movement in the Gold Coast, Nayyar left within a month for Lagos, in Nigeria, before returning again in fall of 1921.
______________________________________________________________________________________________
1923

Abdur Rahim Nayyar was the first Ahmadi mullah sent to British West Africa. Soon after he was sent, the Khalifa at Qadian ordered Al Hajj Fadl-ul-Rahman Hakim to also go to British West Africa and help, thus, Hakim first went to Nigeria (1922). By 1923, Al Hajj Fadl-ul-Rahman Hakim was mostly working out of Ghana as the first permanent missionary to Ghana. He stayed until 1929, at which point he was called back to Qadian. He returned to Ghana in 1933. He seems to have been relieved by another Ahmadi Mullah, Maulana Nazir Ahmad Ali, technically, he spent only the year of 1936 in Ghana and moved over to Sierra Leone, wherein he was the first ever permanent Ahmadi mullah on the scene. Fadl-ul-Rahman worked as the missionary in-charge of Ghana from 1935 to 1947 (See Fisher). Fadl-ul-Rahman died in Pakistan in 1955.

_____________________________________________________________________________________________1927

By 1927, the Community numbered 3,000 across forty localities in the southern regions and the Ashanti Empire. In 1927, an increased missionary outlook was adopted, which facilitated its spread among the Fante people in the south, the Wala people in the north, and the Ashanti people in-between.
_____________________________________________________________________________________________
1929

In 1929, Hakim left the colony, only to return again in 1933, for another two years. According to Samwini, the rapid expansion posed a threat to the very existence of Christianity and the Sunni order in the country. Al Hajj Fadl-ul-Rahman Hakim was on this way back to Qadian, he stopped in Nigeria.
_____________________________________________________________________________________________1931

With small number of Muslims being admitted to public schools, the Community petitioned the government, in 1931, to select Muslim members for the government’s board of education.

While opening the fourth Ahmadiyya hospital in the country in 1971, at Agona SwedruCentral Region, Basharat Ahmad Basir, a leading Ahmadiyya missionary stated that, “opening hospitals and educational facilities in the country was part of the programme of the Movement to regain the lost heritage and glory of Islam.”
_____________________________________________________________________________________________
1974

On August 10, 1974, Abdul Wahab Adam was appointed as the Amir (Head) and missionary-in-charge of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Mission of Ghana by the then caliph of the Ahmadiyya movement, Mirza Nasir Ahmad. Adam was the first indigenous Ghanaian to hold this office.[26] In the early part of his ministry, Adam shifted the headquarters of the Ghanaian Ahmadiyya Muslim Community from Saltpond to the capital of the country, Accra. The move came in response to Accra’s growing economic and political influence in the country, which strongly contrasts with Saltpond, a small unknown town in coastal Ghana.

Humanity First Exposed!!!!!!!!! Its a fraudulent organization that colludes with the Ahmadiyya INC

Intro
When it was first started, one of the principles of Humanity First (HF) was that it always tried to stay separate from the Jama’at (at least I felt so). But recently, the Khalifa took the matters into his own hands and made it extremely clear that HF is very much linked to the Jama’at & Ahmadiyya faith. Now this is problematic as it is against the foundation & identity of the Humanity First. It should be noted that in 2018, HF raised 4.1 million dollars. The Khalifa’s brother, Mirza Maghfoor Ahmad is the Chairman of the Board, Munum Naeem is the fixer, aka President and Executive Director.

Let’s take a look at HF’s “About Us” page. The very first sentence:

Humanity First is a non-political, non-religious and impartial international relief and development agency that focuses on protecting human life and dignity. 

https://humanityfirst.org/about-us/

Humanity First seems to invest most in areas where there is substantial Tabligh infrastructure and high potential like certain African countries and Guetemala. It’s a subtle way to win hearts of people towards Ahmadiyyat. It wouldn’t be so wrong if they didn’t pretend to genuinely help Humanity keeping beautiful principle of Humanity First.

There is big conflict in Humanity First’s mission statement and Khalifa’s proposed mission statement interjecting Ahmadiyya needlessly and scolding his members who strived to make Humanity First into a secular, humanist organization.

_____________________________________________________________________________________________When Mirza Masroor insist it is part of Ahmadiyya & it is very much related to faith, he’s essentially denying the statement that HF is a non-religious organisation.
Let’s take a look at the statement of Mirza Masroor:

Hazrat Khalifatul Masih said that some time ago he felt that the workers and management of Humanity First had the idea that if they gave their services unconnected with faith, perhaps the world would appreciate them more. Huzoor explained to the central management here that their significance was in being connected to faith and the Jama’at is mentioned in their works somehow or the other. And there was nothing wrong to, if need be, mention the Jama’at in some instances. What should be in sight is that we have to serve humanity to gain God’s pleasure. And we serve humanity because it is God’s commandment to pay the dues of mankind. We also need to have a connection with God and need to safeguard our worship because without this, there is no benefit in serving humanity either.

Muslim TV Ahmadiyya International donated a fully equipped TV studio to the State Broadcaster–GRTS of the Gambia in 2019

Intro
The Ahmadiyya Jamaat has recently (2019) donated a fully equipped TV studio to the State Broadcaster–GRTS of the Gambia in 2019 via their own non-profit company, Muslim TV Ahmadiyya International. They did this as they continue to grease politicians in a corrupt manner so that #ahmadis might get special benefits from the Gambian government.

The story

The history of #Ahmadiyya in Cameroon

Intro
Watch my video on this herein. The Ahmadiyya movement was not given access to the French colony of Cameroon. In fact, the French hated the Ahmadiyya movement and never allowed them into any of their colonies, it was only the British colonies wherein Ahmadiyya was implanted. Nevertheless, per the CIA factbook, by 2018, only 24% of the country is Muslim, who live almost exclusively in the northern area and western area of the country wherein Chad and Nigeria are nearby (and the old islamic trade routes). This area was an old Islamic empire which was broken by the European powers and divided. The dominant Muslim tribe in the north is the Fulani (or Peuhl) ethnic group. In the western region, the Bamoun ethnic group is predominately Muslim. Moreover, the Christian community in Cameroon is mostly in the central and southern region of the country.

It is unclear when the Ahmadiyya community got access to Cameroon, however, it seems to be after 2000. The first Jalsa was held in 2014 (at Foumban, Cameroon, where the first Ahmadiyya mosque is), thus proving that by 2014, there were barely any Ahmadi’s in Cameroon. There are only 2 Ahmadiyya place of worship in the entire country. Those can only hold roughly 500 worshippers each. We estimate that there are barely 500 Ahmadi’s in Cameroon as of 2020. However, unofficial Ahmadiyya sources are claiming that there are 430,000 Ahmadi’s in this country, which is a total lie, in fact, the pew research study that they took this from simply asked 100 Muslims a bunch of questions, of which 12 were Ahmadi. Ahmadi’s took this data and claim that 12% of the Muslim population is Ahmadi, which is total academic dishonesty.

The Missionary-in-Charge of Jamaat-e-Ahmadiyya in Cameroon Nayyar Abdul Khalique 

A Pakistani, Nayyar Abdul Khalique is the missionary-in-charge for the entire country. There doesn’t seem to be any additional Ahmadi missionaries (See at the 1:10 mark).
_____________________________________________________________________________________________
Only two Ahmadiyya place of worship in the whole country of Cameroon

The northern area is solid Muslim, most likely Maliki-Muslims, who have never converted to Ahmadiyya. The first Ahmadiyya place of worship is in Foumban, Cameroon, and just opened in 2019. The second seems to be in Nguti, Cameroon and is called Baitus Salam.

_____________________________________________________________________________________________
How did the Europeans defeat the islamic empires?

In the early periods following the arrival of Islam in the region, Muslims were politically active and founded local sultanates. Political structures like the Kanem State and the Bornu Sultanate ruled North Cameroon for decades in the 19th century. These sultanates existed until colonizers began to occupy the region. The northern regions of Cameroon were taken under the control of the Adamawa Emirate, which was subject to the Sokoto Caliphate founded in Northern Nigeria in 1804. Having occupied Cameroon in 1884, the Germans violently oppressed the Muslims who had been in positions of power and diminished their political power in order to consolidate German authority.

The history of Ahmadiyya in Uganda

Intro
Watch my video on this here. Per the English-Review of Religions of September-1915 (see page 355) an Ahmadi was living in Kampala, Uganda by the name of Fazl Din, he was a Veterinary Assistant (See Martin also). This Fazl Din mentions about Eid and how many people showed up and he asked them for money to send to Qadian, then he tells us that the British government has given the Ahmadiyya Movement 4000 acres of land to use for a mosque. September-1915, pages 350-357. It seems that the Muslims at this mosque have all quit Ahmadiyya. This mosque seems to have disappeared in the history of Ahmadiyya. By 1947, there was no Ahmadi mosque in modern day Uganda. An Ahmadi missionory, Nur-al-Haq Anwar is sent north to modern day Uganda, which was British-East-Africa by Sheikh Mubarak Ahmad. In 1947, there were only a few indian immigrants who were Ahmadi’s in Uganda, no natives (see Martin). Nur ul Haq only stayed for 2 years, he left for America in 1949. By 1974, Martin reports barely 265 men who were Ahmadi. By 2019-2020, the Khalifa, Mirza Masroor Ahmad claimed that 800 Uganda’s converted to Ahmadiyya in one year, which is a lie.

In 2020, Amir and Missionary In-charge Uganda is Al-Haj Muhammad Ali Kaire. He seems to be a local Ugandan. He also seems to be the first ever local African to be allowed to be fully in-charge by the Ahmadiyya Movement. He is also in-charge of the Ahmadiyya jamaat of Rwanda. In 2020, he admitted that most of the youth had left Ahmadiyya and continue to do so. Interestingly, the origins of Al-Haj Muhammad Ali Kaire are unknown. We don’t know when he became an Ahmadi or any of his history. We do know that in 1973, Idi Amin deported all indians from Uganda, and that’s how and why the Amir and missionary in-charge is a local. In the Ahmadi newspaper, “The East African Times”, they supported Idi Amin and gave loyalty to him, however, they asked that Ahmadi murrabi’s be exempted from deportation. However, this was rejected by the government, only 2 Indian Ahmadi’s were allowed to stay, Mahmood Ahmad, principal of the school, and one of his staff, Munir Ahmad Munib, have remained. The former
is also regarded as the missionary-in-charge of the Ahmadiyya work in the country.

_____________________________________________________________________________________________1927-1928

Commander Dr. Abdul Latif is sent as a medical missionary to Uganda and Kenya, basically East Africa. The other one was Major Dr. M. Shah Nawaz Khan (1899–1977), he was the pioneer Ahmadi Muslim medical missionary to West Africa.
____________________________________________________________________________________________
Ahmadiyya in Uganda, 2020

By 2020, it seems that there are barely 2 Ahmadiyya places of worship in all of Uganda (in the city of Jinja). This is the Aqswa Mosque,Ahmadiyya Muslim Association, Uganda, which seems to have a maximum occupancy of 100. There is one building, which seems to be a mission house and another property. There is another mosque and mission house in Bulenga, Uganda.
_____________________________________________________________________________________________
Islam in Uganda

By 2014, Muslims make up roughly 14% of the population in Uganda. Of which Ahmadi’s aren’t even in 1%.
_____________________________________________________________________________________________
Uganda before colonization

It is unclear what role Muslims played in Uganda before the British and others showed up. However, it is clear that there were no Christians in Uganda before 1850. Nevertheless, in 2020, upwards of 85% of the population is Christian.

_____________________________________________________________________________________________
The Ahmadiyya beef with Sunni Islam on the coast

The Ahmadiyya community even had a beef with the famous Sunni scholar, Sheikh al-Amin Mazrui (see Martin). al-Amin wrote “Upotofu wa Makadiani”– (Exposing the Qadiani – beliefs commonly called The Ahmadiyya).
_____________________________________________________________________________________________
1915

Per the English-Review of Religions of September-1915 (see page 355) an Ahmadi was living in Kampala, Uganda by the name of Fazl Din, he was a Veterinary Assistant. This Fazl Din mentions about Eid and how many people showed up and he asked them for money to send to Qadian, then he tells us that the British government has given the Ahmadiyya Movement 4000 acres of land to use for a mosque. September-1915, pages 350-357.
_____________________________________________________________________________________________1934

Sheikh Mubarak Ahmad arrives in the port city of Mombasa (modern day Kenya) he travels inland, all of the coastal cities seem to be heavily influenced by the Shafi Fiqh of Sunni-Islam and thus hostile towards Ahmadiyya. However, in the inland cities, there was less resistance, quite the opposite situation was happening in West Africa (See Fisher). Sheikh Mubarak Ahmad picks Tabora, which falls in modern day Tanzania for his headquarters. The first Ahmadiyya place of worship was opened in 1945 (when WW-2 ended) in Tabora. Sheikh Mubarak Ahmad is the supreme Amir in British-East-Africa and remains as such until 1962.

It should be noted that the Ahmadi’s (Indian immigrants) paid the expenses of this missionary, not the central Jamaat at Qadian, not the new Tehrik-i-Jadid program. In fact, most of the mosques in East and West Africa were either taken over by the Ahmadiyya community (in west africa mostly) or wealthy donations were given from Indian immigrants living in East Africa (see the case of the ahmadiyya mosque in Mombasa).
_____________________________________________________________________________________________
1935 to 1962

Sheikh Mubarak Ahmad served as Missionary-in-Charge of the Ahmadiyya Muslim missions in East Africa, and established Ahmadiyya Muslim outreach centers in Kenya, Tanzania and Uganda. During this period, Ahmadiyya mosques were constructed in several East African cities. He translated several Islamic religious books in Swahili; his most memorable achievement being the translation of the Holy Quran and commentary in that language.
_____________________________________________________________________________________________1945

After being the only Ahmadi murrabi in all of British-East-Africa, Nur-al-Haq Anwar is sent from Qadian to help Sheikh Mubarak Ahmad.
_____________________________________________________________________________________________
1947

Nur-al-Haq Anwar is sent north to modern day Uganda, which was British-East-Africa.
_____________________________________________________________________________________________
1949

Nur-al-Haq leaves modern day Uganda. The reason is unknown.
_____________________________________________________________________________________________
1957

A newspaper was started by the Ahmadiyya jamaat called, “Dobozi iya Obuislamu” (Voice of Islam).

_____________________________________________________________________________________________
1958

Per Ahmadiyya sources, “Our Foreign Missions” (1958) there was already an Ahmadi mosque there in Jinja, Uganda. The mosque and land that was given to Ahmadi’s in 1915, seems to have been taken back.
_____________________________________________________________________________________________
1961

Nur-al-Haq returns to British-East-Africa, it is unknown where he is stationed at.
_____________________________________________________________________________________________
1962

Uganda gets independence from the British. The Ahmadiyya movement installs their Maulvi, Abdul Karim Sharma at Jinja, Uganda. This seems to be where the greatest concentration of Ahmadi’s are. There doesn’t seem to be any Ahmadi mosques in Kampala (See Martin).
_____________________________________________________________________________________________
1963

Fisher reports one Ahmadiyya place of worship, in Jinja, Uganda, which is at the source of the Nile River. The Ahmadiyya mosque in Kampala opens, The foundation stone was laid for the mosque in Kampala at the Wandegya roundabout in 1957. This was completed and opened in 1963 with an auspicious ceremony favoured by the presence of Sir Muhammad Zafrullah Khan, an illustrious justice of the International Court of Justice (See Martin).
_____________________________________________________________________________________________
1966

The second mosque In the Kampala area, was completed in 1966 at Masaka having been five years in the construction process. This structure is actually located on the crest of Bwala Hill a half mile south of the town itself (see Martin).
_____________________________________________________________________________________________
1968

Maulvi M.I, Soofi was working in Kenya as the Amir and missionary-in-charge. He was transferred by the Khalifa to Uganda to be the Amir and missionary in-charge, he seems to have been deported by 1972.
_____________________________________________________________________________________________
1972

Idi amin was in power, he sent all Indian’s home. This is probably why there are still no Pakistani-Ahmadi imams in Uganda.
_____________________________________________________________________________________________
1974

Martin reports that there are barely 1000 Ahmadi’s in all of Uganda. Of which 265 are men. He also reports of only one mosque in Jinja, whereas there are a few Ahmadi’s on the outskirts of Kampala. The three major urban centres where their work is based are Jinja, Kampala and Masaka. Nine communities have village-type mosques located as follows: Three in the Busoga region at Kasambira on the main road and at three and six-mile distances successively off the main road; four in Mengo region at Mbiko, Buvunya and Seta all on the main road between Jinja and Kampala and also at Nikisanja twelve miles south of Kampala; and finally two in the Masaka region at Kyajubira and Kyotera twelve and twenty-eight miles respectively out of Masaka. In addition there are three communities in the rural areas out of Mbale where the Ahmadis mingle with the Sunnis at the Sunni mosques for Friday prayers praying behind an imam in each instance who has converted to Ahnadiyya. These localities are named: Ndega Buwaohi, Bumboi Hill and Bubirabi.

The remaining hope for the Ahmadiyya work rests within the capacity of the Ugandan missionaries that had propitiously been trained and given experience prior to the Pakistani missionaries’ departure. There are more than a dozen of these probably deployed among the various communities that have already been enumerated. Among them two are noteworthy. Sheikh Al-Haj Ibrahim Semfuma was previously a Sunni sheikh until 194$ when he converted to Ahmadiyyat. He had served lor numerous years as a teacher for the training classes at Jinja. Zekaria Kazito is currently the secretary for the mission residing in Kampala, He is a former member of the Lukiko of Bugand a, is knowledgeable in Arabic and ha.s had experience as a translator. The portion of the Quran that has been published in Luganda is largely the work of Kazito.

Humanity First is working extensively in Uganda, they recently opened up Masroor Acadamy #Fortportal #Uganda funded by Lajna Ima’illah #Norway @LajnaNorge. @lajna_de @LajnaUK @lajnaau @LajnaCanada @lajnamediausa #Ahmadiyya.
