The 73rd Sect

The Qadiani cult often quotes the hadith:

Abdullah bin Amarra relates that the Holy Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم said

‘Surely things will happen to my people as happened earlier to Israelites, they will resemble each other like one shoe in a pair resembles the other to the extent that if anyone among the Israelites has openly committed adultery to his mother there will be some who will do this in my Ummah as well, verily the Israelites were divided into 72 sects but my people will be divided into 73 sects, all of them will be in the fire except one.' The companions asked. 'Who are they O Messenger of Allah,' Holy Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم said. `They are those who will be like me and my companions.’

(Tirmidhi - Kitabul Eeman)

There is no doubt the saying of Prophet Muhammad صلى الله عليه وسلم is true, the Ummah has split into many factions, yet of all these groups we still share fundamental beliefs and one of them being that Prophet Muhammad صلى الله عليه وسلم is the final Prophet.

The Qadiani cult claim to be the ‘73rd Sect’ prophesised by Rasulullah صلى الله عليه وسلم. After reading the above hadith we notice that there is no mention of the 73rd sect being on the right path. For arguments sake and to simplify this issue, let’s say that the Qadianis are the 73rd sect.

Some important points to note before we go any further:

· Qadianis claim that as long as someone recites the Kalimah, no one has the right to call them Kafir.

· Qadianis claim that Mirza Ghulam Qadiani was the messiah who came to unite the world.

· According to the Hadith there will only be 73 sects and the Qadianis have claimed to be the last.

· The Qadianis claim that they are the ONLY group who are all united

Though most Qadianis know of the split in 1914 which resulted in another movement called ‘Lahori Ahmadiyya Jamaat’ What many innocent members of this cult do not know is how their own religion is split into many more factions.

A list of the different Qadiani groups:

· Lahori Movement

· Jamaat Ahmadiyya Al Mouslemeen

· Anwar-Ul Islam Movement Of Nigeria

· Jamaat Ul Sahih Al Islam

· Green Ahmadiyya

Indonesians who believe Mirza Qadiani was just a teacher

The Ahmadiyya Reform Movement

Al-Ahmadiyyat

All these groups believe in Mirza Qadiani, whether to be a Prophet, Messiah, Imam, Reformer or just a teacher. So with the Qadianis claiming to be the 73rd sect, it would then mean that these groups formed after them have increased the number of sects:

· 73rd Qadiani Ahmadiyya,

· 74th Lahori Movement,

· 75th Jamaat Ahmadiyya Al Mouslemeen,

· 76th Anwar-Ul Islam Movement Of Nigeria,

· 77th Jamaat Ul Sahih Al Islam,

· 78th The Infamous Qadiani Movement,

· 79th Green Ahmadiyya

· 80th Teacher group

· 81st Al-Ahmadiyyat


The Hadith of Prophet Muhammad صلى الله عليه وسلم stated there would only be 73 sects and the Qadianis have claimed to being the 73rd sect, it would mean that with the creation of these other groups, either the Hadith is wrong (nauzubillah) or that these other groups formed after the Qadiani group are all Kafirs and out of the fold of Islam (as there will be only 73 sects). This would leave the Qadianis in a tricky position as they claim any person who recites the Kalimah cannot be called a Kafir.

As Muslims it is simple for us to clarify the dilemma that the Qadianis have been left with. When Prophet Muhammad صلى الله عليه وسلم declared that no one has the right to call a reciter of the Kalimah a Kafir, it clearly means that no individual knows what is in the heart of the other. During the Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم appointed term, many people would come forward and declare that he is a Prophet of Allah, many were sincere and others were hypocrites. His rightly guided companions would hold doubts about certain individuals as to whether they just wanted to spy & create fitnah. The Qadianis do not fall into this category as we know what is in their hearts. The followers of Musailama Kazzaab were declared Kafir even though they recited the Kalimah, prayed 5 times a day, fasted and declared Prophet Muhammad صلى الله عليه وسلم to be the messenger of Allah. Only because they believed in another Prophet (Musailama) they were declared Kafirs. It’s the same with Qadianis who believe in Mirza Qadiani to be a prophet.

If Mirza Qadiani was the Messiah then why do the Qadianis continue to split into more and more factions knowing well that the Messiah is supposed to unite the Muslims? If these are just ‘rebellious’ groups, as some Qadianis claim, then are not you the same as you have rebelled against Allah SWT and his final Messenger Muhammad صلى الله عليه وسلم?

Three options have been left for the Qadianis on the issue of the 73 sects:

· The Hadith is completely wrong as 81 sects have now been formed.

· The rest of those break away factions are Kafirs.

· All the followers of Mirza Qadiani are Kafirs.


Signs Of The Saved Sect

“And hold fast altogether to the Rope of Allah and do not become divided.”
[3:103]

“And be not those who commit shirk (associate partners With Allah), those who split up their Deen (religion) and become sects;
each rejoicing in what is with them.”
[30:31-32]

Hadith no.1

The Beloved Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم said "The Jews split into 71 groups; one will enter Paradise and 70 will enter Hell. The Christians split into 72 groups; 71 will enter Hell and one will enter Paradise. By Him in Whose Power is the life of Muhammad, without doubt, my Ummah will be divided into 73 groups. Only one will enter Paradise and 72 will enter Hell." When asked which group will be on the right path, the Beloved Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم replied, "The main (al-Jama'ah) body of the Muslims." [Ibne Majah Kitab al-Fitan]

Hadith no.2

The Beloved Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم said “There was disagreement amongst Jews and they split into 72 groups. In exactly the same way, there will be disagreement and divisions in my Ummah. It will split into 73 groups. Apart from one of those groups, all the remaining 72 will be thrown into Hell." When asked which group will be on the right path, the Beloved Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم replied, "The group on the right path, which will enter Paradise, will be the group which follows my Sunna and that of my Sahaba and this will be the largest group of Muslims." [Tirmidhi, Imam Ahmad, Abu Daud, Mishkat]

Hadith no.3

The Beloved Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم said "Without doubt my Ummah will never be gathered in misguidance. Whenever you see disagreement, then hold fast to the Sawad-e-A'zam (the great majority)" [Ibne Majah]

Hadith no.4

The Beloved Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم said "Follow the way of the largest group of Muslims! For, he who deviates from this group will be thrown into Hell!" [Ibne Majah]

Hadith no.5

The Beloved Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم said "The devil continually pursues humans as a wolf pursues sheep. The wolf only dares to attack those sheep which have separated from the rest of the flock and are standing alone. And so, my followers and my devotees! Save yourselves from being caught in the traps of misguidance and firmly remain with the largest and most well-known group of Muslims!" [Imam Ahmad]

Hadith no.6

The Beloved Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم said "Allah will never allow my Ummah to unite upon misguidance and incorrect beliefs. Allah's mercy, blessings and protection are with the largest group of Muslims. And he who deviates from this largest group of Muslims will be thrown into Hell." [Tirmidhi]

Hadith no.7

The Beloved Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم said "He who deviates from the largest group of Muslims, even as much as a hand span, has himself cut off his connection with Islam." [Abu Daud, Imam Ahmed]

Hadith no.8

The Prophet Muhammad صلى الله عليه وسلم warned his Followers: “I have left you upon clear proofs, its night is like its day, and no one deviates from it except one who is destroyed, and whoever lives (long) from amongst you will see great controversy. So stick to what you know from my Sunnah and the Sunnah of the rightly-guided Khalifahs - cling to that with your molar teeth.” [Imam Ahmed, Ibne Majah]

Having quoted no less than eight Hadiths, from authentic sources, four points stand out:

1. The Muslims will divide into 73 Groups
2. The largest group will be the right group
3. To stick to the main body
4. Through time there will always be one group who have the Aqeedah of Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم & his companions.

The Ahlus Sunnah Wal Jammah is the main body of Islam, with the vast majority of followers. Qadiani's at most are 2 Million, They claim 200 million but still they are a minority.

Please note: Qadianis cannot provide a solid chain of beliefs leading through time direct to Prophet Muhammad صلى الله عليه وسلم. Many of the claim and beliefs of Mirza Qadiani were newly formed. Instead of Qadianis wasting time in finding these 73 sects, we request you study the beliefs of the Ahlus Sunnah Wal Jamah, who are the one rightly guided group with a solid chain of beliefs, knowledge and practice leading directly to the last Prophet Muhammad صلى الله عليه وسلم.
