Why do Ahmadis not perform Hajj?


An objection that is raised is that why Ahmadi Muslims do not go for Hajj? Instead they go to their holy place in Qadian (the birth-place of their Founder Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad in Punjab, India)? Hajj is a pillar of Islam which they disrespect and they show more love for their own places rather than where the Holy Prophet, may peace and blessings of Allah be upon him, was born, therefore they are not Muslims through their actions!

This is a nonsense objection, how can Ahmadi Muslims go for Hajj when it is the Muslims themselves who are preventing them? Every Muslim must perform Hajj once in their lifetime, unless either the way is prevented, ill health or they cannot afford it. Ahmadi Muslims are prevented to go to Mecca for Hajj by the Saudi Government!  Furthermore, in Pakistan, you have to sign a form if you want to perform Hajj and Umra and on that form you are required to declare Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad, may peace be upon him, as a false prophet!  No Ahmadi Muslim can sign such a form. Hajj is a rite in Islam which you do purely for Allah’s sake to attain the Nearness and Blessings of Allah. All worldly things should be left behind, even your clothes, as you are required to put on two white unsewn clothes – Ihram and so leave all worldly things behind, all fashion cloths etc. and instead everyone is the same, all Muslims striving for the same objectives. If that is the case, then why are they bringing politics into it!  Who are they to say who can do Hajj or not!  No doubt they will say that Hajj is only for Muslims, but if we declare the Kalima – la illaha illallaho Muhammad ur Rasoolullah, then who can tell us we are non-Muslims? Only Allah will judge if we are Muslims or not. It is not for the Saudi Government or the Pakistan Government to decide if we are Muslims or not. That being the case, then they have no right to prevent us. And then after preventing us from going to Hajj, then have the nerve to say we are not Muslims because we don’t go for Hajj!  May Allah have mercy on them.

The fact is that many Ahmadi Muslims do go for Hajj, but they are unable to go from Pakistan.

  1. It is just like saying when I squeeze your neck why your eyes bulk out?

    It is them that have banned Ahamdies from Hajj. And it is them that say why Ahmadies do not perform Hajj? They are insane.
    If they have been true Muslim they would know that for performing Hajj the very first condition is peaceful circumstances.
    When the very first condition is not met how can the hajj be performed?

    But nevertheless we Ahmadies do pray that the day may come soon that Ahmadies would go to hajj without any fear. Inshallah. Amen and Amen again.

  2. I am sorry to write that I was unaware that Ahmedia muslims don’t go for HAjj because the saudia govt. doesn’t allow them.Iam just wondering what I have read above is true.I went for Haj last year and the uncountable number of muslims present for the HAJJ was just unsurmountable.Here there was no discrimation of caste, creed or sect.How can the Saudia Govt refuse? May be the AHmadias fear the persecution they might face if they went for Hajj with the guilty conscious mind.As long as you say the kalama you are a muslim. That is what I believe.

  3. @Zainab Amazed at your ignorance!!
    When the Haj visa form is filled out, you have to say that you are a muslim and do not believe in the Mahi AS!
    You say that when you say the Kalima, you are a muslim:: tell that to the Pakistan govt & mullahs!!
    Then your life will be in danger.
