When a Pakistani Muslim applies for a passport or national ID card, they are asked to sign an oath that no Muslim anywhere in the world is asked to sign. The oath goes like this: “I consider Mirza Ghulam Ahmad an impostor prophet. And also consider his followers, whether belonging to the Lahori or Qadiani group, to be non-Muslims.”
“Valentine’s work may be considered the most reliable introduction to the Ahmadiyya currently available… Highly recommended.”

Ahmad’s credibility falls on many counts: (1) He made predictions that did not come to pass.24 (2) He contradicts the Bible (and the Qur’an) to suit his own agenda. (3) His prophetic roles do not square with reality-Moses and Jesus were monotheists, but Krishna is an idol of Hindu mythology and Buddha was agnostic. (4) His mystical claims to be God, Jesus incarnate, Mary, Muhammad, and other spiritual leaders borders on mental illness.25 (5) His assertions that Jesus was a false prophet, an alcoholic, a liar, a profane person, and insane are plainly blasphemous. In attacking the Bible to defend the Qur’an, Ahmad shows that he cannot be relied on for sound judgment or fundamental honesty.
The Ahmadiyya have produced in particular some elaborate responses to Christianity that differ strongly from the classical arguments of the other Muslims but their innovative attacks have shaped much of current Muslim polemics. In this section we will make available articles responding to their special approach, reasons and presentations.
MUSLIM SUNRISE endeavors to share true Islamic teachings across the United States of America. Its publication beginning an astounding 89 years ago, the MUSLIM SUNRISE carries the distinction of being the longest running Muslim publication in America. Dr. Mufti Muhammad Sadiq , an eminent scholar and first missionary of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community to arrive in America, founded the magazine (then named “Moslem Sunrise”) in 1921.
