Egyptian army. From Dr. Javed Jamil [in India.]
August 17. Egyptian military opened fire on Masjid al-Fath
near Cairo's Ramses square. As we publish this report, 12.30
PM EST, Egyptian security forces have broken into the mosque
where 700 Muslims have taken refuge. Many are women and
children. General Sisi, supported by Copts and Hosni Mubarak
gangs, refuses to accept mosques as sanctuaries for unarmed
people and even wounded people.
Mohammed al-Zawahiri, a Salafist leader, brother of Dr.
Ayman al-Zawahiri, has been arrested in Giza, though his
group is not violent. The Salafists opposed the Muslim
Brotherhood but are now realizing that the military is
against all people who are serious about Islam.
Lebanon: August 15. An Islamic group known as the Battalions
of Ayesha attacked Hizbullah in its stroghold of South
Beirut killing 22 and wounding nearly 200. A "suicide
bomber" is suspected. Hizbullah went into Syria to support
the tyrant Assad. Now its leader Nasrallah is saying that he
will personally go into Syria to defend Assad.
Meanwhile in Homs province of Syria, an Assad checkpoint was
attacked by mujahideen killing 5 troops and 6 Syrian
Christians supporting Assad. Assad's troops are facing off
against al-Nusra in many areas but with no success.
The Muslim world is aghast at the blatant massacre of
unarmed protestors by Egypt's military, police, Copts and
Mubarak gangs. There have been demonstrations in London, New
York and Toronto. Large demonstrations were held on August
16 in various cities in Pakistan on the appeal of Jamaate
Islami leader Syed Munawar Hasan. In Karachi, Jamaate Islami
leader Muhammad Husain Mahnati addressed protestors marching
from Binori town to Qaide Azam's mausoleum. He called for
the arrest and trial of General Sisi for crimes against
The Taliban led by Mullah Omar have reacted strongly to the
massacre of Muslims by General Sisi.
Background study: A cult calling itself "ahmadiyyah" known
as Qadiani to Muslims has developed strong links with the
American power structure. CAIR is nothing in bootlicking
compared to Qadianis. Even in Baltimore they have set up a
million dollar mosque. One of their main leaders in
Nigeria, Dr. Ismail Balogun, found out that "ahmadiyyah"
cult is fake and not Islam. He revealed their inner workings
but his work was not allowed to reach the public. Now, owing
to the efforts of Br. Abdul Wahid Osman [American Muslim
Brotherhood site], we are are able to present the Nigerian
work. It's lengthy but important. It is a must read for new

Vietnam Veteran Embraced Islam: Gave Khutba to 400 Muslims
in Newark, Delaware
August 16: It was a rare occasion at the Islamic Center in
Newark, Delaware. An African American was giving the Juma
Khutba. He spoke about his conversion to Islam. He was very
emotional. During the khutba he cried several times. At one
point he almost broke down and asked for a kleenex to clean
After serving in Vietnam, he said, he came back to America
and all its corruption, racism and materialism repelled him.
He said, it is the miracle of Islam and Allah's blessing
that instead of going to hell fire, as I was, I am standing
in front of you and showing you the Truth of Islam.
He spoke about the blessings of this long, hot, Ramadan
which had cleaned him out. He pointed to the blessings of
Ramadan and urged the audience to build on the forgiveness,
purification and guidance received during Ramadan.

CIA's Plan for Egypt Falling Apart: Ikhwan Sets Record for
Martyrdom. Rallying instead of Running.
August 16: A Terrible Beauty is born.
by Kaukab Siddique
When the Egyptian army attacked worshippers outside masjid
Rabia al-Adawiyyah at Fajr, it killed 51 Muslims and injured
more than 300.
Western observers had the impression that the Ikhwan [Muslim
Brotherhood] is a group of intellectuals and pious prayer
makers. When the firing started they would run.
The opposite happened. Not only the Muslim Brotherhood
[Ikhwan] did not run, more people came to join them.
Then during Ramadan, during the intense heat, the military,
working closely with US intelligence and Israeli
theoreticians, thought prayers would keep the Ikhwan so busy
that some more gun fire would disperse their sit in at Cairo
University and Masjid Rabia al-AdawiyahThe army fired again.
It was a massacre. More than 160 Islamics were killed and
more than 500 wounded.
But they still wouldn't run and disperse. What a surprise,
unarmed people, with women and children, defying slaughter
by a bloody, ruthless military.
American advisers started telling General Sisi to back off
at least a little.
The General saw this as a sign that his CIA handlers saw
him as a failure. So, he decided to show the Americans that
he could kill so many people that even the serrried ranks of
the Muslim Brotherhood, women and children included, would
be dealt such a devastating blow that they would go and hide
and never come out again.
Thus came about the DAY of SHAME for Egypt: August 14
The army, police, special forces, and militias of Christian
Copts and Hosni Mubarak's thugs went in and started a
process of destruction and slaughter the like of which Egypt
had never seen.
By the end of the day, more than 1500 Islamic people,
including women and children, had been killed and more than
5000 wounded. Even the Zionist media in America were
astounded. Such slaughter in the epicenter of the Arab world
could not be concealed.
August 16: A terrible Beauty is born.
As we write this, it is Saturday August 17 in Egypt and
Egyptian security forces are trying to break into Masjid
Fath near Ramses Square in Cairo.
Hundreds of Islamic people
are holding out in the mosque and relaying their message to
the Egyptian people. The security forces are throwing tear
gas into the mosque. Most probably they will break in soon.
Islamic people including women and children inside the
mosque are being threatened by the military's civilian thugs
[Copts and Hosni Mubarak gangs.[
After Juma, on August 16, Islamic youths came out of the
mosques to defy General Sisi's orders to stay home. The
Zionist-backed security forces opened fire, again and again.
In Cairo alone 173 Islamic people, unarmed, have been killed
and more than 1300 injured. [Al-Jazeerah.] Hospitals and
clinics are clogged.. Mosques have been desecrated. Women
have been beaten up till death. Unarmed youths holding up
the Qur'an were shot down by the US-armed military in cold
Sisi's military media, backed by secularist radio and TV
which are run by Mubartak's seculars, are churning out
propaganda, painting the protestors as terrorists.
The Irish poet Yeats, writing about the surprising
resistance by defenseless men to the British, wrote "A
terrible beauty is born." Today we can see it in Egypt with
tens of thousands of young people joining the Muslim
Brotherhood to defy the military's iron fist.
General Sisi, Zionist agent, and USA, had not taken into
account the crescendo of fearless Islamic uprising. Note the
photo, one finger raised in each case declaring: There is
only ONE God. America and the Egyptian generals are not God.
The Movement against the Generals has spread all over Egypt.
Counterattack on Copts.
First Signs of Armed Resistance.
My favorite photo is that of an armored car of the Egyptian
military being thrown over a bridge by protestors. Some
jeeps have suffered the same fate.
Looks like mujahideen groups are trying to protect the
defenseless protestors. The incidents of armed resistance
are streadily increasing. The latest death toll for the
police is 62 killed. The biggest incident was in the town of
Kardaega where police were firing at protestors from inside
police headquarters. The crowd set the building on fire and
killed 11 policemen as they came out.
The Coptic Pope openly supported the military's attacks on
the Muslim people, calling them terrorists. Coptic crowds
have been presented as "demonstrators" against President
Morsi. Now there are counterattacks on Coptic properties.
The Copts are complaining about 32 attacks. Some churches
have been attacked in response to attacks on mosques by the
security forces supported by Copts.
Why the Islamic Uprisings will win? The Conflict is
As in Libya and Syria, the conflict is triangular. For
thirty years, under Mubarak, the Islamic people were turned
into non-persons. While the Islamics, first Gamaa
al-Islamiyya and the jihad movement and then the Muslim
Brotherhood were suppressed, USA paid Mubarak more than a
billion and a half dollars every year to keep it that way.
Egypt was the torture capital of the world.
In the meantime, the west persuaded Mubarak to permit
westernized dissidents to create a loyal opposition. These
were then used to organize the public resentment against
The West supported the "revolution" and discarded Mubarak
while retaining the military. The Muslim Brotherhood had
persuaded the Western powers that it had really turned
against Syed Qutb's writings and would never harm Israel.
Many top people of the MB were genuinely pro-America. So
America held the army back and allowed the elections to be
held. During the election process, large numbers of young
people attracted to the Islamic message supported MB and as
a result, Dr. Morsi was elected.
The youth constituency gave Morsi the confidence to gain a
measure of confidence. He also started moving against the
army, not realizing that the army was solidly America-based.
[It was like replacing Musharraf with Kayani in Pakistan.]
American intelligence saw that Morsi was going for
independence. Hence the US and Israel gave General Sisi the
"go ahead" for the coup.
However, the peaceful resistance of the Muslim Brotherhood
and the ferocious assault on unarmed people by the
pro-military elements has radicalized the situation. General
Sisi was advised by the US to stop but he did not. He is
becoming, or has become, like Qaddafi and Assad. A point of
no return has been reached or will be reached soon as the
peaceful protests continue and are repressed.
The country is opening up to action by mujahideen groups.
Many of the young people now supporting Morsi will switch to
jihad as they see hundreds of defenseless pious bearded men
and hijabi women shot down.
This happened in Libya and then in Syria.
If the killing continues a small segment of the army may
break away and try to defend the people and to train the
would-be-mujahideen. We saw that in Syria.
Egypt is a deeply religious country. Once the people are
mobilized to fight for Islam, the situation will open up for
the establishment of the Islamic state. Remember that Shaikh
Omar Abdel Rahman, Dr. Ayman a-Zawahiri and Mohammad Atta
President Obama does not understand the situation. He is on
vacation during the massacres. Kerry was on a yatch,
holidaying when the coup took place. Only senator McCain and
a couple of other senators understand the situation. What
McCain wants, and what he tried in Syria too, is to oppose
the tyrant but arm the "moderates" only.. He wants military
aid to General Sisi to be cut off. If that brings the army
to its senses, the killing could stop and "democracy"
restored. Even President Morsi could be brought back.
The system is breaking up. The room for fighters against
Israel is being enlarged. In Libya, USA suffered heavily
after thinking it had won by removing Qaddafi who kept
crying "al-Qaida!" In Syria, Assad has killed 100,000 but
the US will not arm the fighters. Think why?
The Murder of Asma Beltagy by the Egyptian Army
by Dr Javed Jamil
[The writer is a prominent Muslim scholar
[Excerpted from a long article.]
Asmaa Beltagy - the 17-year-old daughter of Mohammed
Beltagy, a Muslim Brotherhood died of chest wounds. But she
is no Malala who was shot by the enemies of America. She has
been shot by the Egyptian Army, which is an extension of
American Army. So while Malala deserves ovation for her
courage in the face of "terrorists", awards and possibly
Nobel, Asmaa remains unsung. Nobody in the Western media has
any interest in her story; nobody is shedding tears on the
loss of a 17-year old girl. The International media is
instead busy in trying to portray the events in Egypt in a
way that the MB emerges as the ultimate sinner.
Even Traiq Ramadhan, who has been a long time critic of
Muslim Brotherhood and whom I rate as an Islamic apologetic
trying to reconcile Islam with Western values, has admitted
that the blame on Morsi seems to be a part of the
well-orchestrated plan first not to let him function with
authority, then create conditions that make people angry
with him, then encouraging people to hold mass protest, then
to use these protests to topple the President and then
immediately taking steps to restore supplies to the people
so that it appears as if Morsi was withholding them.
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
In a series of articles published in Nigeria during 1974,
Dr. Ismail A. B. Balogun, a high level Ahmadi leader,
refuted the tenets of Ahmadiyyahand 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
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
"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,
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
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
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
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
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.
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
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
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,
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
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,
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
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
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
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
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
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,
