Whether you're a newcomer to Islam, a Muslim or Muslim Revert who is rediscovering true Islam for the first time, someone who is simply interested in the faith which claims over two billion followers worldwide, or a researcher, educator, student or writer, this website presents authoritative Islamic Answers to Questions about Islam from both Muslims and non-Muslims.
ISLAM, QADIANISM AND
The existence of numerous sects -
each one claiming to be rightly guided - is a predetermined
fact which the Noble Qur'an makes reference to. Allah Ta'ala
declares, 'And if your Lord had so willed, He could have made
mankind a single unified group, but they will continue to
dispute and differ' (Hud 118).
Nabi (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam)
said, 'Verily this nation (of Muslims) will be divided
into seventy three sects. All of them would be in the fire
except one.' When asked which one, he replied, 'The
one that adheres to my Sunnah and the Sunnah of my
companions.' (Abu Dawood).
This brief article, details some of
the fundamental differences between Muslims, Qadianis and the
Shiites. It is hoped that the reference below will highlight
some of the deviant beliefs of both the Shiites and the

prophethood was sealed and Wahy (revelation) ended.
Prophet had been sent twice to the world. The first time he
appeared in Makkah, in the form of Muhammad and the second
time in Qadian in the form of Mirza Ghulam Ahmad.
The Imaam is a successor to the Nabi appointed by
God. He is infallible and excels all Prophets, besides Nabi
Muhammad (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam) in dignity. They
possess the knowledge of the past and the future. They possess
authority of death. They are divinely protected against

All the companions became Kaafir except the
immediate household of Nabi (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam) and
three other Sahaaba after his demise. Ali (Radhiallaahu Anhu)
is considered by some as a vicegerent, others regard him as a
prophet, whilst another group regard him as god.

SOME STRANGE SHIITE
The wives of Nabi (Sallallaahu Alayhi
The Shiite's bear
the same enmity and malice for the wives of Nabi (Sallallaahu
Alayhi Wasallam), as they bear against the Sahaaba. They are
frequently referred to as hypocrites and infidels.
Kitmaan and Taqiyya (Holy
fundamental teachings are kitmaan and taqiyya (to conceal
one's real faith and belief). Imaam Jaafar Sadiq is purpoted
to have said to Sulaymaan bin Khalid, 'O Sulaymaan! You follow
a religion that whoever will conceal, God will bestow honour
on him and whoever will reveal it and publicise it, he will be
disgraced by God.' He further states, 'Among ten parts of
religion, nine lie in Taqiyya. He who does not observe taqiyya
is devoid of faith.'
A 'Hadith' attributed
to Nabi (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam) reads, 'Whosoever does
Mut'a once reaches the rank of Imaam Husian, whoever does it
twice reaches the rank of Imaam Hassan, whoever does it thrice
reaches the rank of Hadhrat Ali and whoever does it four times
attains my rank.
Another purported 'Hadith' states,
'Anyone doing Mut'a with a believing woman is like one who has
made the journey to the Ka'abah 70 times.'
Khomeini's view regarding
prophethood, 'Every prophet came to establish justice on
earth. His aim was to establish justice but he was not
successful. The same is the position of the seal of prophets
who came to reform human society and establish justice but he
failed during his lifetime.' (Ittihatwa-yakjihati).
He further states, 'It is a
necessary principle of our faith that our Imaam have ranks
that exceed those of close angels and the appointed
messengers.' (Al-Hukmatul Islaamiyyah).
May Allah Ta'ala protect our Imaan
and save us from being part of the deviant groups,
