“Ahmadiyya, beliefs and experiences” (2000) by Hassan Bin Mahmood Odeh–An Ex-Ahmadi from Kababir, Haifa, Israel

We have written extensively about Ahmadiyya in Kababir, Haifa, Israel.  We wanted to add one more piece research information to our blog.  We have found and posted a book by Hassan Bin Mahmood Odeh, who is an ex-Ahmadi from Kababir, Haifa, Israel.  He is from the famous Odeh family.  Under Mirza Tahir Ahmad, he worked as the “Director-General” of the Arabic section of the Ahmadiyya Movement.  He had also lived in Qadian and had learned Urdu and thus was able to read directly from the books of MGA.

Kababir: an Ahmadiyya community in Israel by Ray Register (1970)–Hartford Seminary Foundation–Thesis/dissertation


My team and I have found a Thesis that was written about the Ahmadiyya Movement in 1970.  It specifically highlights the Ahmadiyya community in Kababir.  The PDF’s are upside down, remember to rotate them.  This blog has posted many rare articles on Ahmadiyya, we will continue to do so.  We also provide opinions on the data that we find.

1—It seems that the entire village population of Muslims in Kababir converted to Ahmadiyya in the early 1930’s.  This story is fishy.  We need more data on why and etc.  Jalal ud din Shams was the missionary/vicious Ahmadi-mullah and he had came from Damascus where he was almost killed.

2—In 1970, the Ahmadiyya policy in Israel was that of neutrality, they never spoke up in terms of the human rights violations of the Israeli government.

3—Ahmadi’s had segregated themselves from the local Muslim Community on a social level.

4—It should be noted that the headquarters of the Bahai religion can be found less then a few miles from the Ahmadiyya center in Kababir, it is located in the greater city area of Haifa.

5—There also seems to be a small community of Baptist-Christians in Kababir.  They seem to have worked with Ahmadiyya over the past 10+ years and til today in 2018.  Register notes that NO muslims have ever converted to the Baptist type of Christianity.

6—Ray Register was a Baptist preacher that was sent from America to Kababir in 1964, he thus has an amazing vantage point and is neutral.  Ray register spent 5 years in Israel as a Baptist missionary, mostly outside of Kababir, he thus came into contact with Muslims of Israel as well as Ahmadis.

7—Register quotes Farquhar as he explains the creation of the Ahmadiyya Movement.  However, what Register didn’t know was that in 1915 Farquhar had written that MGA died of cholera.  Register quotes the same book, which is
“Modern Religious Movements in India” (1915).  Farquhar also edited Walter’s historic book on Ahmadiyya, which was published in 1918.

8—Register makes a few errors, first he thinks that the ROR started in 1892, which is wrong, it started in 1902.  He also asserts that MGA read out his lecture, “The Philosophy of the Teachings of Islam” (1896), which is wrong Maulvi Abdul Karim read it out.  And in fact, Khwaja Kamaluddin didn’t think it was a good paper (see Truth about the Split” {1924}).

9—Register writes that Christians weren’t attracted to MGA’s new set of beliefs, however, Sunni Muslims were, since MGA offered some arguments vs. Christianity.

10—Register writes that MGA died of an intestinal disorder, he got this from Walter, however, he totally ignores the comments of Farquhar.

11—Register mentions how Zafrullah Khan boycotted the funeral of Jinnah.

The Review of Religions (ROR) of November 1931, Front page and pages 290-291

As we continue our work on Ahmadiyya in Kababir, we have collected an article from November of 1931 which gives us additional evidence.  It seems that Mirza Basheer-uddin Mahmud Ahmad had sent Jalal-ud-din Shams in roughly 1925 and had him return in 1931.  The Khalifa replaced him with another Ahmadi-Mullah, Maulvi Abul-Ata Allah Ditta, who was a new graduate of the Mullah-training-school in Qadian.

This report has lots of info on Islam in Palestine, Egypt and Syria, which were all property of the British Government.  It also tells us that before Jalal-uddin Shams, there was another Ahmadi-Mullah sent to Damascus.  His name was Syed Zainul-Abideen Wali-ullah Shah.  This person has never been mentioned before in the annals of Ahmadiyya literature.  Moreover, the British government forced Jalal-uddin Shams to leave the Damascus area and they seem to have directed him towards Kababir, wherein there was a family of Muslims living in a village.  Finally, a report of the operations of Ahmadiyya in Bengal is also given.

The Review of Religions (ROR) of January 1932, pages 30-34+images

My team and I continue to collect archival material on the Ahmadiyya Movement.  In this instance, we have found the ROR of 1923 and some specific pages.  This article in the ROR specifically tells us about Ahmadiyya operations in Syria, Egypt and Damascus.  To read additionally about this topic, read here:

Jalal-uddin Shams mentions hows Jews are taking over Palestine
Firstly, the British Government was administering these lands and was allowing Jews to move in and buy land.  The same British Government had helped Ahmadi’s in Israel and most likely led them to Kababir.

Cement of Superior quality?  From Kababir? 
Jalal-uddin Shams mentions how there was a huge family business in Kababir in cement work.  This seems to have been a multi-million dollar enterprise (by today’s standards).  Register mentions this fact also, it seems that the family that owned this business was totally converted to Ahmadiyya before Shams left.  However, Shams tells us that some Jewish people had bought and taken over this business.  We are not sure of the implications of this quite yet.

Review of Religions, August of 1932, “Factors which contribute to the success of a new religion and their application to the Ahmadiyya Movement”


My team and I have found an old edition of the Review of Religions (ROR) from August of 1932.  Malik Ghulam Farid was the editor in those days, he went on to write the 5-volume official commentary of the Quran, which can be found here.  Malik Ghulam Farid (1897–1977), was a notable Ahmadiyya scholar. He was deputed the task of preparing the 5 Volume The English Commentary of the Holy Quran,[1] in 1942, by Mirza Mahmood Ahmad, the second Khalifa.[2] He published the said Commentary in 1962. Later, in 1969, Malik published the Abridged Edition.[3] Malik Ghulam Farid also produced a Dictionary of the Holy Quran, but it could not be published in his lifetime. He died in 1977.[4]

The essay itself
Ahmadi’s claim that Mirza Basheer-uddin Mahmud Ahmad wrote this essay and many others, however, that’s a lie, he rarely wrote anything.  Just like MGA, he had his resident mullahs write everything, he was simply their figure head.  This is another case of exactly that.  In fact, Mirza Basheer-uddin Mahmud Ahmad claims to have written a Tafsir of the Quran, however, that’s a lie, it was really written by his Mullahs.

Important points made in the essay
1—The Ahmadi’s of Kababir are mentioned, it is possible that this is the first time that they were ever mentioned in the literature of Ahmadiyya.  Also see here:

2—The essay is essentially calling Ahmadiyya a new religion, and thus giving examples/criteria of how new religions have historically formed.

3—Qadian is backward province, and thus produced backward ideas.

4—MGA and his movement have always told people to follow their government (colonialism) and to never revolt.

5—MGA and his sons require Ahmadi’s to sacrifice their monies, time and children to the Ahmadiyya Movement.

6—Most Ahmadi’s pay between 10–30% of their earnings to Ahmadiyya aka the Mirza family.

Ahmadiyya officially claimed that the State of Israel is “temporary”

Ahmadiyya and their opinions on Judaism are very interesting.  They have a mosque in Kababir which has is also in the same neighborhood as the global headquarters of Bahaism.  Nonetheless, their relationship with the state of Israel seems to be positive.  In fact, Shimon Peres visited in 2009.  

The quote that I am presenting 
Chapter 33:60 can mean many things, its open to interpretation, I personally feel that it was a historic event that was told by Allah, not a method of behavior vs. jewish people.  Malik Ghulam Farid is the author here and Mirza Tahir Ahmad is said to be the editor.  This is from the 2002 edition of this book, its unknown what was written previously, as we all know, Ahmadis have a habit of editing their books.   Nonetheless,  this seems to be the 5th edition, editions appeared as follows, 1969, 1981, 1988, 1994 and finally 2002.   In the current edition, it is written as follows:

Ignominy and humiliation have dogged the footsteps of the ill-fated Jewish people throughout the ages.  Their return to Palestine and the establishment of the State of Israel seems to only be a temporary phase”





Ahmadis in the Israeli Military??

This blog entry was spawned as a result of some research work that I did many years ago. I found some data about Ahmadis in Israel which was incorrect.  The reference claimed that there were many Ahmadis serving in the Israeli military as of 1972.  That is not true.  The reference simply says that there are 600 Ahmadis in Israel by 1972, and it incorrectly states that they are from Pakistan.  It then says that since they are citizens, they can also serve in the Israeli military.

Who is Jalal-ud-Din Shams?


Maulana J.D. Shams was from a small village called Sekhwan (“n” is silent), which is a few miles away from QadianHis father’s name was Khwaja Imam-ud-Din Wyne Sekhwani, and his grandfather’s name was Khwaja Muhammad Siddique.  His father is listed in the 313 companions of the Promised Messiah (AS) as is his grandfather.  They were ethnically Kashmiri and that’s why the have the foretitle Khwaja and the surtitle Wyne (“n” is silent) around their names, but they lived in Punjab, India.  I was informed by a Pakistani geneaologist that this Kashmiri family was originally of Jewish ethnicity and around 1,000AD the leader of their tribe, Wyne, became a Muslim and all others in the tribe followed suit – but I can’t verify this as it’s probably based on oral tradition.

Jalal-ud-Din Shams was born in Qadian in 1901.

His father, Imam-ud-Din, had two brothers:  Jamal-ud-Din and Khair-ud-Din (also listed in the list of 313 companions) and they were known to be exceptionally poor.  However, they strived so much financially that even though their combined amounts were still pretty meagre, the Promised Messiah (AS) gave them special attention.  For example, for the construction of the white Minaret-ul-Masih (the minaret of the Messiah), which symbolised the mission of the Promised Messiah (AS) and the minaret mentioned in the hadith prophecies, there was a special call for construction funds.  A minimum contribution of 100 rupees entitled the person’s name to be commemorated near the foundation.  The three Sekhwani brothers, as they were called, asked for a special exception if they all three could combine their contribution to add up to 100 rupees.  This was still a great financial sacrifice for their families and the Promised Messiah (AS) accepted their request and included their names along the list of those who made the 100 rupee contributions.

Imam-ud-Din made more than financial sacrifices in the cause of Islam.  His son, JD Shams was a life dedicate to Ahmadiyyat.  This meant that he had to leave for missionary assignments as ordered by the Khalifa.  I heard from JD Shams’ sister’s daughter, Aamina who is still alive in the US, that Imam-ud-Din had a dream indicating his own death while his son, JD Shams was away (I think in Palestine or England). Aamina was a young girl living there at the time and personally witnessed this.  Imam-ud-Din had written a letter to the Second Khalifa to allow his son to come home so that he could see him before he passed away, but as he started on his way he had second thoughts.  He felt ashamed to ask for this when the time called for the sacrifice of persons and wealth for the cause of Islam.  He went to the courtyard of his home and tore up the letter.  He had the dream again, and wrote another letter, but tore up that letter too.  He died before seeing his son again.  He took comfort in the company of JD’s young son (i.e., his grandson), Dr. Salah-ud-Din Shams, who resembled his father JD.

Imam-ud-Din’s two sons were very important to him.  His family had a history of problems with male children.  They were rare births and tended to die in infancy.  He requested the Promised Messiah (AS) to pray for him to have sons.  The Promised Messiah (AS) gave him medicine (which Dr. Salah-ud-Din Shams told me was iron) and the Promised Messiah (AS) told him that he would have two laudable sons.

Jalal-uddin Shams was sent to Syria, and Palestine, since the Ottoman Empire had fallen and this lands came under British control

Beef with the Haqiqat Pasand Party
Apparently, he defended Mahmud Ahmad and his acts of immorality.  His daughter was also implicated in Mahmud Ahmad’s web of deception at Qadian.

Jalal-ud-Din’s grandfather was Imam of the mosque in Qadian from roughly 1870 to 1891
MGA never led Salaat during his life.  MGA’s father employed Jalal-ud-dins grandfather as an Imam, to essentially lead the Salaat and give all the speeches (skip to 2:36).  This proves that MGA never led salaat in his life.


Ahmadiyya missionaries are sent to Russia illegally in 1923-1924

I came across an interesting book just recently, it is: “A call to Islam in the USSR” by A.R. Mughal.  This book is essentially an oral narrative by Maulvi Zahoor Hussain of his imprisonment in the USSR. I have read this book thoroughly and am shocked at the behavior of Ahmadiyyat and the involvement of the British in their support. This book essentially proves to the world that Ahmadiyyat always had support from the British government in almost every aspect of its operations.

The Data
In 1924, Mahmud Ahmad had built his Jamia-Ahamdiyya. He built this with the idea of training murrabis/mullahs and sending them out into the world as a means to further his portfolio of global income. Maulvi Zahoor Hussain was a young Indian-Ahmadi(see page 112) and was honored to be a graduate from the first class of Jamia-Qadian. This class contained the first group of stalwarts of Ahmadiyya like Jalal-ud-din Shams, who eventually wrote an introduction to every book of MGA, Shams was sent to Syria and then later Kababir as he somehow converted an entire village to Ahmadiyyat. Mirza Sharif Ahmad also attended this initial class of murrabis/mullahs (Mughal). He makes a rare appearance in the history of Ahmadiyyat. I am not sure whether he graduated or not, however, it is clear that he was never posted as a murrabbi anywhere. The one thing that Mirza Sharif Ahmad was good at was taking pictures and other activities that somehow kept him connected to Ahmadiyya. Furthermore, Mahmud Ahmad was planning to send murrabis to every country that the British occupied and even had his eyes on other countries.

Mahmud Ahmad sent Maulvi Muhammad Amin to Iran and Central Asia in 1921 (see Ahmadiyya British-Jewish connections, page 87). Also see, Fateh Muhammad Sayal, “Jamaat Ahmadiyya Ki Islami Hidmat”, 1927, Lahore, Page 30.  By 1923, Maulvi Muhammad Amin has been arrested a few times for spying on behalf of the British Govt., (see page 87).  Also See Al-Fazl, Qadian, 14 Aug 1923 and Al-Fazl, Qadian, 28 Sep, 1923.  

Mahmud Ahmad had planned to send a murrabi secretly into the USSR. He had sent a surveyer intially to check out the possibility of illegal entry, the surveyer had reported back that it was possible to sneak into the USSR. When the day finally came for Mahmud Ahmad to select a person…he didnt choose his younger brother, instead he chose Maulvi Zahoor Hussain who followed the orders of his “peer”. He thus began his journey as he travelled from Qadian to Afghanistan and then to Iran in 1924. He seemed to buy assistance all along the way. He consistently found people who housed him and guided him as he attempted to sneak across the Iran/USSR border. When the day finally came for him to sneak into the USSR, he followed his route as his guide had explained and prayed to his God for support in this illegal endeavor. From his own account, Maulvi Zahoor Hussain was apprehended very shortly after entering the USSR. He was immediately arrested for not having a visa. He was immediately detained and began to be questioned as to why he was in the USSR. The USSR quickly confiscated all of his personal belongings and found some rather shocking documents that led to the conclusion that Maulvi Zahoor Hussain was spying on behalf of the British government through the mask of Ahmadiyyat.

The Soviets questioned him intensely. The British were not on good terms with the USSR and they were thus questioning Maulvi Zahoor Hussain in terms of the relationship between Ahmadiyya and the British. Further, the Russians had confiscated some secret instructions from Mahmud Ahmad to this maulvi, the instructions were as such:

“When you reach Bukhara ans start converting people to Ahmadiyyat, do not disclose the names of the new converts to anyone. So much so that even the Ahmadi converts were to be kept in the dark about each other’s identity. However, when you shift from one town to the next, then select one of the most efficient and truthful Ahmadis from the whole lot and apprise him of the names and other details of all the Ahmadis in the area. You should tell the chosen person to continue meeting all the Ahmadis in he town strictly on an individual basis. This instruction should be adhered to both in word and spirit at all times” (page 63).

After reading this and other papers from the bags of Maulvi Zahoor Hussain, the Russians had concluded that this Ahmadi was in fact a spy and had thus scheduled him for execution. This also led to beatings and intense questioning. The Soviets kept trying to get this Ahmadi-Mullah to confess that he was in-fact spying for the British…however, this Maulvi had been trained very well at Qadian and kept his mouth shut, he stuck with his alibi which was to state that he was simply a cleric of the Ahmadiyya who was instructed to trespass the USSR and gain converts to Ahmadiyya. However, the Soviets weren’t buying it! They knew of the Ahmadiyya and its close relationship with the British Government. They were even able to get books of Mirza Ghulam Ahmad and thus questioned this Maulvi based on those books, it seems that “Jihad and the British govt” was also included in these collections.

Further, during the course of his stay in various jails in the USSR, this Maulvi reports that he had converted a few people to Ahmadism. He states that his strategy of tabligh was to hide the prophethood of Mirza Ghulam Ahmad and to focus on the spirit and support of Islam that Ahmadiyya was selling as if Islam was a product. Through his process of masking Ahmadiyat, he was able to secure a few converts. It so happened that these Muslims who had unknowingly converted to Ahmadiyyat were still in the habit of praying salat behind Sunni Imams. The Ahmadi-Maulvi quickly scolded them and explained to them that Muslims were spiritually dead, and thus praying behind Sunni Imams was useless. He also explained the Ahmadiyya principle that Sunnis and Shi’ites were now Kafirs since they rejected Mirza Ghulam Ahmad. These newly converted Ahmadis must have been shocked in terms of the isolation aspect of the “A”.

Meanwhile, back in the interrogation rooms, Maulvi Zahoor Hussain kept getting transferred to different jails and questioned about his religion and the British govt., all the while he kept frequent contact with Qadian. Eventually he was transferred to some prison in Moscow and I’m sure that Mahmud Ahmad was informed of this final transfer. It should also be noted that almost 1 1/2 years had elapsed and Maulvi Zahoor Hussain hadnt been executed or let free by the Soviets. However, the rumors in the jails began to circulate that the execution of Maulvi Zahoor Hussain was very close. Maulvi Zahoor Hussain had kept in touch with Mahmud Ahmad in Qadian and Mahmud Ahmad had been actively trying to get his agent released and thus avoid execution. It so happened that Mahmud Ahmad used his positive connections with the British Government and arranged for Maulvi Zahoor Hussain to be released through diplomatic discussions between a certain ambassador of the British and the USSR, who just so happened to be in Moscow. In the introductory pages of this book, Mirza Bashir Ahmad wrote a heart-felt letter explaining how the British came to the rescue of Ahmadiyyat and were able to get their murrabi released and thus avoid execution.

After a 2-year prison stay, Maulvi Zahoor Hussain was going to be released by the USSR and thus avoid execution for espionage. The Ahmadiyya Movement thanked the British government and Maulvi Zahoor Hussain was coming home. Maulvi Zahoor Hussain was released from prison in 1926 and traveled south from Moscow until he reached Baghdad. As part of the deal between the USSR and the British, Maulvi Zahoor Hussain would meet a high ranking British official in Baghdad and then catch a ship to Karachi. Maulvi Zahoor Hussain reached Qadian and was celebrated as hero.


For years and years and years, Ahmadis have been telling Muslims that they are not spies and they are not in cahoots with the British Government. However, in the case of Maulvi Zahoor Hussain and his two years in the USSR, we have a serious case of an Ahmadi-citizen of the British Government who was given specific orders by the Khalifa to trespass into the USSR and gain converts.  Furthermore, the preaching strategy of Maulvi Zahoor Hussain was to effectively hide the prophethood of Mirza Ghulam Ahmad as they knew it would be a barrier to conversion. I can say with certainty that this was policy of Ahmadiyyat in the USA, Europe, Africa, Indonesia, etc etc etc.
