Is the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community a new religion?


Hazrat Amirul Momineen, Khalifatul Masih Vaa was asked various questions about Ahmadiyyat. Huzooraa, in a letter dated 23 March 2020, gave the following reply to those questions:

“[…] As far as the Ahmadiyya Jamaat is concerned, it is not a new religion; rather, it is the true community of Islam which Allah the Exalted has established in exact accordance with the prophecies of the Founder of Islam, the Holy Prophet Muhammadsa, the Chosen One.

“Just as Allah the Exalted sent prophets in different regions and at different times for the reformation and betterment of the world and revealed teachings to them to guide the people in the past, He also sent our Master and Guide, the Holy Prophet Muhammadsa, the Chosen One, to guide the whole of mankind and revealed to him the eternal teaching of the Holy Quran which will last till the Day of Judgment.

“The Holy Prophetsa, upon being informed by Allah the Exalted, prophesied that a time would come when the Muslim ummah would be corrupted and the Muslims would turn away from the true teachings of Islam. At such a time, Allah the Exalted, having mercy on this ummah and in order to guide them, would raise an ardent devotee of the Holy Prophetsa from among his followers who would establish the people on the teachings which Allah the Exalted had revealed to the Holy Prophetsa and which he explained with his words and deeds.

“Hence, the Promised Messiahas spent his whole life fulfilling this responsibility. After his demise, the blessed system of Khilafat was established in Jamaat-e-Ahmadiyya in accordance with the prophecy of the Holy Prophetsa and, by the grace of Allah the Exalted, the Ahmadiyya Muslim Jamaat is resolutely spreading the peaceful message of Islam and its beautiful teachings all over the world under the blessed auspices of Khilafat. 

“Therefore, the Ahmadiyya Jamaat is not a man-made institution, so that we should talk about its being simple or not; rather, it is a plant planted by Allah the Exalted and it is trying to spread the teachings given by God in the world for the good of mankind […].”
