Assalamu ‘Alaikum Warahmat Allah Wabarakatuh
Please find below a post sent to me yesterday evening. I would like to reiterate that the posts I put up, be they mine or those sent in to me by someone else, are individual efforts. Jazak Allah
It is in a month like that of the blessed Ramadan that Muslims all over the world spend more of their time in practicing admonitions of the Qurʾān and the Prophet (saw). Muslims also spend much of their time in admonishing others to do good and repel and refrain from evil and sin.
The Prophet (saw) stated in a ḥadīth that in this month satan is chained and the gates of heaven are opened up. It is no wonder then, that the unlawful, backbiting, and perilous inhabitants of the(sacred)cult.info webspace are spending this month in preparing for further ‘attacks’ and ‘revelations’ of the sins of others.
Pray! tell, which ḥadīth you are acting upon in this month: and before some of you ‘reverts’ or those in the process of reverting to the Islam of thecult.info’s shuyukh actually start searching for such a ḥadīth, let me save you the google searches and tell you that none would exist – because such is not the blessed practice of the Beloved Messenger of Allāh (saw).
In a month in which Allāh has given us the glad tidings of goodness and attaining nearness to Him, you are increasing in your practice of ghiba (backbiting), slander, and exposing the sins of other muslims. This should come as a revelation in itself for people such as the elusive ‘nemo’ who is trying to find his/her path, and should set your course aright.
The fact that the people at thecult.info are hell-bent on exposing ahmadi-muslims, without regard of the fact that they may be ruining quite innocent family members of the exposee in the process matters not – even in this blessed and merciful of months. Where is the Mercy, Nemo? Maybe you should think about what Islam is being practiced by the muslims at thecult.info. I certainly don’t want to be a part of it.
On the other hand, I am a simple muslim. I am open to people changing – unlike some at thecult.info. I have much to pray for my own spiritual discipline and practice – therefore I won’t make promises of praying for you all that I may not keep – but I do say that you should all pray to Allāh to forgive your sins – and pray that Allāh never exposes your faults in the way that you all go about exposing the sins of others.
This first ‘ashara (ten days) of Ramadan was the ‘ashara of Rahma. This next ‘ashara, according to the ḥadīth of the beloved Messenger (saw) is that of maghfira (forgiveness). Forgiveness is only truly effective when followed by iṣlāḥ (reform) – I pray that we all take stock of our sins and transgressions against others and pray that Allāh never causes any of our own sins or faults, excesses or transgressions to be exposed. May Allāh give us the tawfiq (ability) to reform ourselves and accept our worship in this month, and make this blessed month a means for our salvation, and not for our abasement, in this life and the next.
Regarding the Qaid:
What he did, if he did it, is condemnable, and if he did this consciously, he, like anyone else, will no doubt seek forgiveness from Allāh – thecult.info is not a partner of Allāh or the Messenger (saw) and thus has ABSOLUTELY NO PART TO PLAY in his process of istighfar or repentance, especially not now that they have ”exposed” him for all to see. Those who have done this, they will probably not agree with me, but do you really think you are in a better position than the person you are condemning? Seriously, think about it. Fear Allāh. Allāh says in the Qurʾān: Idfaʿ billatī hiya aḥsan – repel wrong with that which is best.
But the exposure of his picture and name were totally unwarranted and the sin of slander and backbiting, and exposing another’s weaknesses and mistakes is upon those who have taken any part in it. Similarly, they are subject to Allāh’s anger for any other people of his family that were hurt or damaged by these cowardly acts of exposure. But as I said above, it is never too late for Allāh’s forgiveness, and anyone who has an ounce of awe and fear of Allāh, and love for the Messenger (saw) and counts themselves within his (saw) Ummah, will repent and desist from such harmful diseases.
Regarding other Ahmadis who do something wrong:
Amongst the beauties of Islam is that the sincere repentance of a believer is accepted as if he has never sinned. It would be best for them, hereafter, to befriend such people and inform them of the problems of the paths they have taken – rather than exposing them on a website. I really cannot see how shortsighted some people can be – especially those on thecult.info forum – your actions find ABSOLUTELY NO SUPPORT from the sacred sources of our religion: neither in the Qurʾān, the Sunnah or the Ḥadīth. Tell, what Islam do you then herald from?
To those who are sincerely researching the books and writings of the Promised Messiah (as), I eagerly urge you to do so, with sincerity and asking Allāh’s assistance throughout.
I openly invite anyone who has any sincere criticisms of the writings of Hadrat Masih-e-Ma’ud (as) to contact this website and contact me in writing. I am more than willing to speak to anyone regarding these and other issues – but I will not indulge in, or entertain, suspicion, backbiting, slander, personality-attacks or other sins – our beloved Master (saw) did not permit this – it is as simple as that. I am not an employee of the Jama’at.
[The Art of Misinformation: Apparently, this post has got a bit of coverage across at the Cult. The user ”Nemo” posted a response and so I received an e-mail from the author of this post who asked if I would post his follow up comments here. The text in itallics is that of Nemo and the rest is from the original author who wrote the above post]

This should come as a revelation in itself for people such as the elusive ‘nemo’ who is trying to find his/her path, and should set your course aright. The fact that the people at thecult are hell-bent on exposing ahmadi-muslims, without regard of the fact that they may be ruining quite innocent family members of the exposee in the process matters not – even in this blessed and merciful of months. Where is the Mercy, Nemo? Maybe you should think about what Islam is being practiced by the muslims at thecult. I certainly don’t want to be a part of it. Fistly I would like to thank you for taking the time to read my posts. I really wish that I didn’t need to become a member and put up my posts…
I feel no shame in accepting that I read your posts – if only I had. But I was sent your posts in a copy/paste fashion by some friends who were worried about you and others in your position. I thought that I would therefore follow it up with a post to you and those who have similar concerns about their beliefs, like you. I think that it is absolutely fundamental for every Ahmadi-muslim – not just the likes of Nemo and myself, to examine and identify ourselves and see whether what we believe is actually sourced in the classical doctrines of the early muslims and the jama’at of the Prophet (saw) and in the perennial sacred text of the Qur’an, and the perennial sunnah of our belove Messenger (saw).
I will do my utmost never to slag off the jamaat and the promised messiah or our huzur, just incase that “get out of hell card” does exist. But I will not stop at wanting to question my belief and to some extent I appreciate the exposure this site has given on the jamaat. Its an eye opener for the jamaat to change its ways.
That is a good intention – there are ways in which the sahabah questioned the Prophet (saw) – there are ways in which Hadrat ‘Umar (ra) questioned the Prophet (saw) saying, “ya rasulAllah! are we not on the truth??” when the Prophet (saw) and the muslims were prevented and blocked by the Makkans from entering Makkah even though they had been promised that they would be able to enter Makkah in peace. The peace accord that was drafter between the Muslims and the Makkans was humiliating for some in that the conditions were demoralising. Hadrat ‘Umar (ra) is famously reported as having asked Hadrat Abu Bakr (ra):Are we not upon truth? Are the makkans not upon falsehood? is He (saw) not the Messenger of Allah? All of which were met with an affirmative response from Hadrat Abu Bakr (ra).Hadrat ‘Umar (ra) then asked the Prophet (saw) the same questions, all of which were responded in the affirmative. And the Prophet (saw) finally said words to the effect of ‘I am the slave of Allah, and I will never cease in my obedience to Him (Allah). He will not mislead me.’
But interestingly, and noteworthy for us all – especially those who seek to question the faith and claims and writings of the Promised Messiah (as) – whom we believe to be sent by the same Allah who sent the Prophet (saw), is that although Hadrat ‘Umar (ra) was not prevented from asking such protruding and intrusive questions to none other than the Messenger of Allah (saw), it is Hadrat ‘Umar’s (ra) answers to his own questioning that is most telling:
He said: (words to the effect of) “I never ceased to fast, give charity, offer prayers, and free slaves due to what I did that day and in fear of the consequences of the words that I uttered, until I began to regain some hope.”
Hadrat ‘Umar (ra) regretted his questioning of the Messenger of Allah (saw) – not because he asked the questions, but because of the way in which the questions were asked. Surely if the questions in themselves were invalid and with ill intent, Hadrat Abu Bakr (ra), and the Prophet (saw) would have reprimanded Hadrat ‘Umar (ra) for speaking out of turn.
So ask questions, but do not sin in the process. Do not masquerade your ‘search for truth’ by couching and accompanying it with sly personal remarks about certain people – what have any of the people who are mentioned on the Cult anything to do with your relationship with the Promised Messiah (as), the Holy Prophet (saw), and our Creator? How does what someone has on their website, on their car bumper sticker, their financial history, or a person’s alleged or real sins, have anything to do with whether the claims of the Promised Messiah (as) are true or not? After all, is this not what you set out to achieve. Yet instead, you seem to have been clouded with the personal slander which people like Farhan and findings say is permissible in Islam, and the offer verses of the Qur’an and the sayings of eminent juridical authorities (such as the Imams of jurisprudence – or their students) to excuse inexcusable acts like ghiba (backbiting) and qadhf (slander). When the Prophet (saw) says that backbiting is as if you would be eating the flesh of your brother, I do not care for all the (hiyal) legal loopholes that people try to make muslims jump through to try to validate backbiting, or by calling it frontbiting (which, by the way, flies in the face of the prophetic teachings – when the Prophet (saw) calls it ghiba – to term it anything else to satisfy one’s own bruised ego and to dilute what they are doing) is a crime, no less!
So ask questions, by all means – in fact there is not a question that I would not answer (if only someone was to ask me) as long as it was with sincerity, and without all the bells-and-whistles of sin and disobedience to the Messenger (saw) and to Allah(swt).
Admitidly, the site has very much rubbed off on me whilst swimming in these waters and yes I know I have gone against what I previosuly said “I will do my utmost never to slag off the jamaat.” Your question do I really want to be part of the islam being practiced by cult The answer is Yes and No. As findings has pointed out the ayah 4:148 “Allah does not like the public mention of evil except by one who has been wronged.” As a member of this jamaat, I have been wronged and so have all the rest of us. I’m not proud of the stuff I had to mention, but it is all part and parcel of my journey. I honestly feel very sorry for the Qaid and his wife and family, that has always been my opinion and never changed since someone leaked this. My conscious is clear of leaking such things as I was not party to any of this or the other stuff. Strangely I am content that others are doing this because I’m glad that the hypocrosy of the jamaat is being exposed, its just such a damn shame that it’s at the expense of playing with someone’s personal life. But then that’s also the jamaat for you, they also like to happy slap people. Whenever anyone starts off on a journey we don’t always follow the route we had initially intended. We encounter things on the way and make changes, as I have done by starting to speak out against the jamaat and some of its office bearers. Sometimes we find that it’s necessary to back track. This is a very real possibility too, because if I can be satisfied by the writings of the Promised Messiah I will sit quitely in this weird and very annoying cult. So please bare this in mind.
If the answer to the question is even partially yes, then I feel for you. Because most of these people clearly do not practice a form of Islam that I have seen in the back-streets of Cairo, Syria, Jordan or elsewhere in the islamic world – least of all in Medina al-munawwara. Just their words on their sin-inspiring forum makes me feel for their future progeny, and I am sure that whatever they are doing through this forum, they would prohibit even their own future progeny from doing, because in reality they know what they are doing is sinful – and would not want sin for their children. If not, they need to learn their Islam again.
And before taking tafsir of the divinely revealed words of Allah from Allamah Findings, about which words Allah explicitly says “none knows of their interpretation except the rasikhuna fi’l-ilm (those deeply entrenched in knowledge)”, I would refer you to the Tafsir: al-Tanwir al-Miqbas min Tafsir Ibn Abbas in which he says that this verse means:
“(Allah loveth not the utterance of harsh speech) verbal abuse (save by one who has been wronged) in this case, he is permitted to make supplications; it is also said that this means: Allah does not love the utterance of harsh speech even from one who has been wronged. (Allah is ever Hearer) of the supplication of the person who has been wronged, (Knower) of the punishment of the transgressor. This verse was revealed about Abu Bakr who was verbally abused by a man.” (emphasis mine)
Surely the highlighted portion of the tafsir above indicates that highest spiritual station in such circumstances is to complain to Allah about the wrongdoers. And shows what is beloved to Allah – and what should be practiced by one who is longing for Allah’s pleasure and His love. To pitch this verse as an allowance for backbiting brings more problems. We do not take plumbing advice from doctors, or vice-versa, so I would caution that we do not take tafsir of Allah’s divinely revealed words from those not skilled or divinely endowed with such subtle knowledge.
I know many people who have been wronged in life – some of them take it in their stride, others cannot – and this is the human condition. The Prophet (saw) once declared that anyone who had been wronged by him (saw) should come forth and take their revenge as He (saw) did not want to be avenged for it on the day of Judgement. One man stepped forward and said that once the Prophet (saw) had brushed passed him and his staff/walking stick and hit him on his back. The Prophet (saw) took this seriously, raised his (saw) blessed shirt and asked the man to take revenge, at which the man stepped forward and kissed the blessed and pure back of the Holy Prophet (saw). SallAllahu ‘alaihe wa sallam. Sweet revenge…!! This is the model of revenge we find in the Prophet (saw) and his companions – blessings be upon them all. They were those about whom Allah revealed the verse “…ashiddaa’u ‘ala’l-kuffaari ruhamaa’u baynahum…” – They are harsh towards the disbelievers, but tender amongst themselves. Those who are not tender amongst themselves, be they Ahmadi-Muslims, non-Ahmadi-Muslims, or others, should think over this verse in Surah al-Fath, and correct their ways.
You also seem to be inferring that if someone in the jama’at does something wrong, then its ok for you to follow similar courses of action. Whether this will wash with Allah on the day of Judgement, I cannot say – Allahu a’lam. But from the Qur’an we have clear and brilliant guidance: “Idfa’ billati hiya ahsan…” – ‘repel that (evil) with that which is better/good…’
because I’m glad that the hypocrosy of the jamaat is being exposed, its just such a damn shame that it’s at the expense of playing with someone’s personal life. But then that’s also the jamaat for you, they also like to happy slap people.
But Allah tells you to leave people with their vices, and you should respond not in kind, but with something better – something which is a warranted of a man/woman such as yourself who is a believer in the True Creator and a servant of the Beloved Messenger and Khatam al-Nabiyyin (saw). Many people have wronged me in my life – both friends and others – but I know I am clear with Allah when I follow His command and instruction, and then any harm which befalls me is temporary and in the greater scheme of things, insignificant because I have obeyed Allah.
Masha’Allah – you also seem aware of this, and you are aware of the fact that we make mistakes:
Whenever anyone starts off on a journey we don’t always follow the route we had initially intended. We encounter things on the way and make changes, as I have done by starting to speak out against the jamaat and some of its office bearers. Sometimes we find that it’s necessary to back track. This is a very real possibility too, because if I can be satisfied by the writings of the Promised Messiah I will sit quitely in this weird and very annoying cult. So please bare this in mind.
I too am a sinner, so the only advice I can give you and myself is to start the journey well, and insha’Allah Allah will note your sincerity and treat you with similar kindness. There are those who speak out against injustice – which is good – but to do so without Allah’s assistance and in disobedience to the way that He has instructed is doomed to fail and will be injurious in the long run. One Ahmadi-Muslim youth who left Ahmadiyyat and joined ‘Islam’ (as if the two are separate(!)) has recently come out and left Islam altogether. Another older guy became a Christian. Both of these did the same – they spoke publicly against the Jama’at and joined mainstream populist ‘Sunni Islam’, and their paths have ended up far away from Allah altogether. I pray that you are guided and hold firmly to Islam and at the same time would be remiss in my obligations if I didn’t make you aware of the pitfalls that have befallen these other unfortunate individuals (they are unfortunate, not you.)
We the jamaat do not have a voice and this site is a haven for me to voice my frustrations. I am very lucky that cult members have accepted me despite my beliefs. And as Findings pointed out, this is front-biting, not backbiting because the people mentioned are free to read. But yeah I’m sorry for the occasional name drops, I guess that’s just my inner bitch which I’m working on! But I thank you for warning me before I took it too far. Though damage is done I’ve now edited out the very few names used in some of my posts but have left in the office bearers who I wish to make a point to. And its not slander when you tell the facts as they are. Lets say hyperthetically we weren’t discussing religion, say it were politics or theology. Then I would be the first to remove my orange and white stripey mask to reveal my dark brown face. I would openly speak up against the system through my real identity, and say I’m unsure about the very foundations laid here. But because this is the jamaat we must tred very carefully, our families will be shunned because of us and we will be fed to the lions both through jamaat action and community word of mouth, as if we had done something horribly wrong by speaking out! If that makes me a coward, so be it but that’s essentially what offers the protection we are entitled to.
Let’s be clear, they have not accepted you and probably will not until you leave Ahmadiyyat – that is the one criterion that they have always congratulated people on – after the initial welcome and congrats for coming onto the forum – or so people tell me. They are most probably giving you the companionship that you seem to have unfortunately lacked within the Jama’at. The front-biting / backbiting point has been mentioned above – suffice to say that the scholars of islam classify backbiting as speach or words injurious to another in their absence. In usual backbiting, people can still find out about what was said – just because they find out (by word of mouth or by reading a website) is no different – both are backbiting if said in absence of the person at the time it is said. Anything else is just semantics. If they are happy doing this, then good luck to them. Ask any muslim scholar, sunni, shi’i, wahhabi, deobandi, barelwi, anyone: as to whether the content written on an internet forum about a third person which is injurious or potentially hurtful, and the third person doesn’t know about it, except by reading it or hearing about it after it has been posted and published to another person, whether such would qualify as ghiba (backbiting). I would be very, very surprised if it did not qualify. I have read enough islamic legal texts, and have sat through enough fiqh classes to know the tell-tale signs of Ghiba. I am afraid the information you are being provided is not correct.
And I think you recognise this as you have taken corrective action, as you say in your post above. I do not intend to insult you but you clearly have the intuition and firasa (insight) to be able to tell right from wrong.
The point you make about treading carefully: Look, I have said it before, if you have anything you feel needs to be discussed, no matter how fragile the egg-shells might be you can call me or write to me and we can speak about it. I obviously won’t want to or need to know who you are. Although if you are a woman, someone else will have to take the gauntlet, but I’m sure I can recommend someone that will hold similar principles. That you’re an Ahmadi Muslim is enough to make me and any other Ahmadi Muslim care about you and the worries you have regarding belief in Allah, the Prophet (saw) or the Imam Mahdi (as). You don’t need to reveal who you are, and I have no need to reveal who I am. But I can assure you that even if I did know who you are, I wouldn’t reveal it as that would be injurious to you and your family and would fly in the face of everything I have learnt from my faith, from the Qur’an and from the writings of the Promised Messiah (as).On a side note, Skype would allow identity to be sufficiently protected – like I say, I do not need, or want to know who you are, and neither does anyone else. The only time people want to know who people are, is when those people are out solely to injure other people and their characters through maligning them publicly. And I know, that if someone put personal information about me or my family on a website, I would want to know who they are. That is natural. But as long as it remains religious, theological, or intellectual, it is the questions that matter, not the people.
Anyway, you are right, its Ramadan, the gates to paradise are open and it’s a time for forgiveness. I do wish to concentrate on my own spirituality rather than wasting my virtual breath on this weird jamaat. But its too difficult to let go sometimes when the jamaat is letting us down. And the sect of the Holy Prophet saw is all that appeals to me right now. I was actively posting because right now religion is at the forefront of my mind, unfortunately its not something I give much thought to throughout the year. It was the Jalsa/Ramadan period and thus I had a lot of steam to let off. I was always here temporarily and I shall be concentrating on my studies after the summer break. But I will probably still be around passively, taking a back seat, possibly chucking in the odd post now and then. Lastly thanks for saying:
To those who are sincerely researching the books and writings of the Promised Messiah (as), I eagerly urge you to do so, with sincerity and asking Allāh’s assistance throughout. I openly invite anyone who has any sincere criticisms of the writings of Hadrat Masih-e-Ma’ud (as) to contact this website and contact me in writing. I am more than willing to speak to anyone regarding these and other issues.
Jazakallah for the acknowledgement – Ramadan is a time for disciplining and restriciting one’s soul (nafs) – in all respects – not just the easy ones! The jama’at is made up of all of us – if it is letting us down, it is highly likely that we are letting it down because we constitute the jama’at and it comprises us.
I welcome that! So far the jamaat has a shady history of being selective in translating the PM’s books in English, and it just so happens most of the controversial and weird stuff are written in the books we don’t have access to in English. Of course I will have to remain balanced with your opinions and those of Hussain/Xia etc. But it shows you care and you also wish to help, and maybe there is light at the end of the tunnel, there are so many questions that need answering. This is a key issue. Brother logic – take note of the above quote
The translation issue is not an issue – since he put pen to paper, the Promised Messiah (as)’s writings have been contended, whether translated or not. Questions are welcome – although I do not have the patience to type and enter long email discussions – if you want to skype them out, then this will be better, and all/any questions are welcome – no matter how egg-shell-y. Although, I am not interested in quotes taken from other websites. If the quote is on another website, read it in the original (if you can) and we will answer it. The only other condition is that if the answer to the rebuttal is satisfactory, and one is content with it, that you make it clear that such similar accusations are thereby also answered and void. Usually, we see that people come with a barrage of accusations, and when one is answered, they move onto the next one without acknowledging whether they are content that there is no problem with the first one, and this fashion is clearly of no benefit.
BTW Jamaat… Don’t bother wasting your time in Finding Nemo. There is no point. I am not a threat, remember though if you pee someone off completely that makes them more destructive , so just don’t whatever you do. Prove to me that you’re not a cult. I am simply a passing visitor, and after I have left I shall return now and then to say hello to my friends on cult Do not be bothered in me being involved in leaks. Anything I discuss will always be because it is common knowledge and has been passed by word of mouth. I am involved at a local level and so it would be very silly of me to discuss things about a local amla, as I know it will easily point back to me! I do not have any tentacles in your regional or national amla’s and my local amla is so politically motivated that I don’t think I could swim that far against such a strong current. And quite frankly I couldn’t care less to go there
You were doing so well…and then….look, like I said, leave everyone else to be. Focus on Allah, and ask Allah to assist you, and to correct the ways of anyone who has wronged you, and if you believe someone to be acting inappropriately, don’t incur Allah’s anger by slandering them publicly, or backbiting, pray that Allah reforms their ways.
I care not for ‘leaks’. I would not like anyone to reveal what Allah has kept covered of my faults and sins – and thus would not wish it upon anyone else. For those who have leaked something, they have Allah to answer to, and so I will not attempt an answer on His behalf.
As long as you are male, we can set up a Skype username to deal with this, inshallah.
Wassalaamu ‘alaykum wa rahmatAllahe ta’ala wa barakaatuhu.

I was informed tonight that the Cult forum user ”Nemo” had the following comment directed at him / her tonight on the Cult forum:
@ NemoSeems like your on their radar BRO BRO. Win!
I should not have to say this again, but I will. There is no they, there is me. This blog is run by me, a individual Ahmadi Muslim and no other person has administrative access to this blog or the e-mail attached to it – no human. I am very, very privileged to be an Ahmadi Muslim and if a Jama’at offical asked me tomorrow to stop this blog I would gladly do so – they have not. I have no radar and no secret intention. As Almighty God is my witness, I set this blog up with the sole intention that it would give people like Nemo the opportunity to be presented with some kind of balanced opinion. I love all humanity, particularly my Muslim brothers and sisters – your spiritual well being is very important to me as a spiritual brother of yours. I am a worthless individual, no better than anyone else, but it is my prayer that this blog is of some benefit. Furthermore, this is not a competition or a game show where we play to win ”Who wants to be a Muslim.” Imam is a serious matter and should not be treated so trivially.
Nemo, like us all, is searching within his/her heart for answers to difficult questions – this is a matter of Iman and a natural part of the human condition. That journey, for all of us, is what is important – nothing else. I personally take such matters more seriously than anything else. If Nemo wants to come here and permit me, or the author of this post, to try and help him / her in answering those questions, then I would be more than happy to help. It is my, indeed a shared Muslim responsibility to ensure that we help one another.
The bottom line is this, if Nemo or anyone else wants help from me then the electronic door is always open. If a random person comes here and asks questions then how would I even know that person was Nemo or any other (and many people do e-mail me – who knows, some could be people on the Cult). And if such a person did come, for me his / her coming here would be as a sign of his / her sincerity and that takes conviction. This blog, so long as I run it, will always be a safe and non-judgmental place for anyone – this is my personal promise and Almighty Allah has instructed us all to uphold our promises. This will be the last update here. Anyone wishing to discuss this further is welcome to post their comments below or contact me confidentially at firstname.lastname@example.org
Jazak Allah and finally, please pray for me as I am a quite worthless person in need of much improvement.
