Question

 

It has been said that qadianis are murtid because they left Islam after reciting the kalma. But isn't this valid only for the first generation of Qadianis, the ones who saw and followed Mirza Qadian? The generations that followed them followed the belief of their forefathers, not necessarily Islam. How can it be said that they left Islam after having recited the kalma?

Answer

 

In the name of Allāh, Most Gracious, Most Merciful


Assalāmu ῾alaykum wa Rahmatullāhi Wabarakātuh

 

The ῾Ulamā have issued the ruling of kufr and Irtidād against Mirzā Ghulām Ahamd Qādiyāni and those who follow his beliefs.

As for how the generations of the Qādiyānīs will be regarded as Murtads.

And Allāh Ta῾āla Knows Best
Wassalāmu ῾alaykum
