Modou Lamin Ceesay
I am humbled to be granted the opportunity to contribute to the ongoing debate over the Ahmadiyya’s TV application saga. I write to show my support for The Supreme Islamic Council for living up to expectation by petitioning PURA not to grant the Ahmadis a licence to operate in order to avert any attempt to pollute the minds of Gambians with unfounded stories of a promised Messiah. This position of the council is consistent with its earlier declaration of Ahmadis as non Muslims, a ruling which is also in line with the rulings of renowned scholars both within and outside The Gambia.
The Ahmadiyya’s relationship with the Muslim community is predatory because they hide under the banner of Islam to undermine the purity and the sanctity of the Islamic faith. They hold beliefs which run contrary to quranic injunctions and the authentic sayings of Muhammad (SAW), the best of creation, the most accomplished of the prophets and messengers of ALLAH SWT and the seal of prophethood. They ridiculously believe that all non Ahmadis are astray and Muhammad SAW is not the seal of Prophet but Ghulam Ahmad instead. Against this backdrop among other reasons such as denying that Essa (JESUS) AS was neither killed nor crucified as mentioned in the glorious Qur’an, in Surah Nisa, chapter 4, their claim that salvation lies in following Ghulam Ahmad and their shameless misinterpretation of the verses of the holy Qur’an are few but enough reasons why Muslim scholars labeled The Ahmadis as non Muslims or unbelievers.
It is therefore the obligation of all genuine Muslims to clearly and unequivocally support our great scholars, the stalwarts of Islam, constituting The Gambia Supreme Islamic Council for their timely intervention.
I hereby call and remind all Muslims that they were Muslims before holding any position of power and reverence and when they die, nothing other their Islam shall make up their answer sheet, caution is therefore key in the execution of our duties to our creator and the nation. We will all be sinning and falling short of the glory of God when we put a so-called democracy and manmade laws ahead of our great religion. Islamic Sharia is the only Law that has stood the test of time (yesterday, today, tomorrow and forever).
I exhort my brothers and sisters in Islam and Humanity to note that for us Muslims, the QURAN is our FURQAN (the criteria to judge between right and wrong), anything contrary is ultra vires and therefore null and void. The positive future of this country lies with Islam not with a so-called illusive democracy that was parceled out to Africa as a neo-colonial weapon of war but yet the backward African is excited at its unworkable principles.
May Allah guide all Ahmadis to the right path so that they can enjoy the fragrance of paradise. Ameen.
Yours in the service of the creator, I remain.
