Indonesia: On attack against Ahmadiyah mosque – Letter


Ahmadis consider Prophet Muhammad their beloved final law-bearing prophet and the Holy Koran as their final divine book. There will never be any prophet after Muhammad, who is equal or above him and who can bring new law.

Referring to the headline, “FPI attacks Ahmadis in Bandung” published in The Jakarta Post on Oct. 27, allow me to share my views.

Every civilized person would condemn the use of violence to express one’s view. Islam does not allow the use of unlawful means in disputes. The law of Indonesia rejects violence in the name of religion. Its constitution gives full freedom of belief to every citizen.

Such cruel acts tarnish the image of Indonesia as tolerant nation, internationally.

Authorities should take measures to guard the weak and provide them full protection.

The news says, “Ahmadis believe in Mirza Ghulam Ahmad as their prophet, but this is considered heretical by mainstream Islam, which recognizes Muhammad as the final prophet while considering Mirza as a preacher.” This wording may give the wrong impression as if Ahmadis do not recognize Prophet Muhammad as their prophet.

Ahmadis consider Prophet Muhammad their beloved final law-bearing prophet and the Holy Koran as their final divine book.

There will never be any prophet after Muhammad, who is equal or above him and who can bring new law.

In spite of this all, the coming of a subordinate prophet after Muhammad has always been an agreed upon belief by the majority of Muslims, including Ahmadis, around the world.

So, it would be someone from within the Muslim Ummah, who was to come as a subordinate prophet, who would be, in character, like Nabi Isa, the son of Mary.

They also believe that this subordinate prophet has come in the person of Mirza Ghulam Ahmad. He is neither above nor equal to Prophet Muhammad. Instead, he is under Prophet Muhammad as his servant, whose sheer purpose is to serve the Islamic sharia.

Factually, it is just a difference of interpretation between mainstream Muslims and Ahmadi Muslims. Otherwise, Ahmadis around the world believe in and practice the five pillars of Islam and the six parts of iman (belief).
