British Muslims & their stance on Ahmadis


Recommended Posts

In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.


 


As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh


 


This statement is being issued on the 07th of April 2016 and supersedes all previous statements on the subject.


 


We begin with stating our general agreement with the Position Statement of MCB issued on the 6th of April 2016 and reiterate:


 


We subscribe to pluralism and peaceful coexistence and acknowledge the rights of all to believe as they choose without coercion, fear and intimidation. We also affirm the right of Ahmadis to their freedom of belief and reject any attacks on their property or persons. They have the right to live free from discrimination or persecution. The targeting of Ahmadis for their beliefs is totally unacceptable.


 


We further state and affirm the twin fundamental pillars of Islamic creed which are belief in One God and that Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon Him) is the final Messenger of God. Our position with regards to finality of Prophethood is based upon numerous clear and unambiguous verses of the Islamic scripture (Qur’aan) such as:


 


[33:40] Muhammad (Peace be upon Him) is not the father of [any] one of your men, but [he is] the Messenger of God and last of the prophets. And ever is God, of all things, Knowing. [Al-Qur’aan]


 


Muslims have subscribed to this creed for over 1400 years, uninterrupted. It is also an agreed upon tenet of both Sunni and Shia doctrines.
