We are the Ahmadi Religion of Peace and Light. Our call is a universal call, calling all the people of the world from all walks of life, all nationalities, and all backgrounds to acknowledge the Supremacy of the absolute one true God.
We believe that in every age there must be a divinely appointed leader who is an infallible Successor of God, and is fully inspired and guided by Him, to whom submission and obedience would be obligatory, as he would be the one who perfectly fulfills the will of our Creator and guides humanity to the path of righteousness and true monotheism. In this day and age, we believe that the rightful Successors of God are Imam Mahdi, Imam Ahmed al-Hassan, Abdullah Hashem, and Mahdi – peace be upon them – and they are the ones mentioned by name in the Will of Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him and his family), which is a Will that none could ever claim except for its rightful claimants, as declared by Ahlul Bayt (The Imams from the Family of Muhammad peace be upon them).
We believe that Imam Ahmed al-Hassan (peace be upon him) is the infallible rightly guided Successor of God whom has been prophesied not only by the Abrahamic religions (Judaism, Christianity, and Islam), but also by all the other major Religions (Hinduism, Buddhism, Zoroastrianism, and more), to come in the End Times in order to uphold the word of the one true God, establish His supremacy upon the Earth, and fill the Earth with justice and equity as it has been filled with oppression and tyranny.
We believe that the soul never dies, and that the reincarnation of the soul in different bodies is true. We believe in Paradise and Hell Fire, and that one of them will be where the soul resides after completing all of its rounds as ordained to it by God Almighty. We also believe that God created us in His image, and that every soul’s purpose is to truly realize that it is far more than this physical body, that its boundaries are far further than this physical world, to break its attachments to them, and ultimately to spiritually elevate in order to reflect all the divine attributes and perfections – each according to the rank they attain through their sincerity.
We believe that there were 124, 000 Prophets and Messengers whom were sent to the people of the Earth throughout history by the one true God. We believe in their infallibility and sacredness, as well as that they were all manifestations of God on Earth, whom were sent to guide the people towards the perfect complete absolute divine. Those Prophets and Messengers include Abraham, Krishna, Zoroaster, Buddha, Zeus, Moses, Aristotle, Socrates, Pythagoras, Plato, Noah, Hermes, Jesus Christ, and Muhammad – peace be upon them all. We also believe that the teachings, messages, and holy books which they all came with, without exception, have been greatly distorted throughout history, and that the real message of love, peace, justice, and mercy which they had come with, and the true holy scriptures inspired by God Almighty to them, will all be revealed by Imam Ahmed al Hassan (pbuh) in this time.
We believe that the soul never dies, and that the reincarnation of the soul in different bodies is true. We believe in the concept of an afterlife. We also believe that God created us in His image, and that every soul’s purpose is to truly realize that it is far more than this physical body, and that its boundaries are far further than this physical world. The purpose of the soul reincarnating includes breaking off from attachments, and ultimately spiritually elevating, in order to reflect all the divine attributes and perfections – each according to the rank they attain through their sincerity.
We believe that we are living in the great age of the Raj’a (The Return), when all the Prophets and Messengers, the Ahlul Bayt (the holy family of Prophet Muhammad pbut), and all the righteous believers throughout history, incarnate once again, to support and give victory to Imam Mahdi (peace be upon him) and his Vicegerent and Messenger Imam Ahmed al-Hassan (peace be upon him) in their mission, which is the same mission that all the Prophets and Messengers have always come with; Establishing the supermacy of God, spreading monotheism all over the Earth, exposing falsehood and tyranny and putting an end to them, feeding the hungry, supporting the widows, taking care of the orphans, and spreading mercy, justice, and the truth, until the Divine Just State is established on the Earth.
It is upon every person to carefully investigate the path which leads them to God.
We say: Imam Ahmed Al-Hassan (pbuh) is the Qaim of the Family of Muhammad (pbut), and the leader of the black banners of the east.
But it is upon the truthseeker himself to investigate the matter and return to God.
Imam Ahmed Al-Hassan (pbuh) has clarified many times, that he is not looking for blind followers, and warned people to use their own minds, research and scrutinize the matter in order to find the truth:
“We do not call anyone to believe with ignorance, without awareness or knowing.
Research and scrutinize in our matter and in our Call.
I do not want anyone to enter into this Call without knowledge or awareness or research.”
– Imam Ahmed Al-Hassan (pbuh)
