  1. Salaam,

    I am so glad to have found this website. The admin is tackling the issues that have boggled my mind of late, and which have also steered a cousin way from the jamaat. Inshallah, will be perusing through the logical and articulate discussion. Fantastic work! I’ll definitely share this website with my cousin.

  2. Assalamu Alaikum!

    I have a small suggestion to make. I was visiting the blog page to read an article I had previously seen, but it is no longer displayed on the “front page” as there are newer articles. The problem I am having is that there seems to be no “older posts” link any where (maybe I just can’t see it!), for me to be able to do so. If this is a problem with my browser, and the link is in fact present, please also let me know so I can view the blog from another.

    JazakAllah Khair.

  3. Hello There. I found your blog using msn. This is an extremely well written article. I will make sure to bookmark it and come back to read more of About Islam is Peace . Thanks for the post. I’ll definitely comeback.

  4. You are doing a wonderful job. I hope I get opportunity to contribute. I am so Happy, that is all.

  5. Assalamo-Alaikum-Warahmatullah-Wabarakatahu,

    Now let me share my 2 words 🙂

    I was debating myself with Pakistani fellows @ http://www.paklinks.com (I hope it does not fall under the category of “advertisment for a website”). Me and 2 members of the Jama’at have been discussing with the opposition over 9 Pages. Well the 2 members started from page 1. I joined the conversation on the 6th or 7th page. I don’t remember exactly.

    Point 1:

    They don’t regard our opinion or let me qoute a Member of the website mentioned above:

    “I disregard most of your opinion”.

    I had the thought that how can people be so blind and see not the truth even though Allah the Almighty has blessed them with sight, intelligence etc. The bitter truth is that they don’t want to observe themselves what is right and what is wrong. Human’s Nature searches for fancy cars, big houses, high self esteem in the working world and the society outside of your 4 walls. They are not interested in what we say. Overall they are not interested in Revelation-Rationailty-Knowledge-Truth, yet they call themselves to be true followers of Muhammad Mustafa (saw). The mind has been made busy so much with tv, gaming consoles, mobiles, facebook and co. To my understanding the greatest trial of the Dajjal. Those things might have also their good side, but the Human Nature tends to misuse it more than to use it’s advantages. Whereas I see no advantages in gaming consoles and facebook. To bring back the soul on the right track it is neccessary to pray, pray with devotion and for guidance. What I have observed though is that we are fast in our prayers and what we utter is not really coming from our heart or say intention. It is a merry old dance with a merry old sound sadly. We don’t search for the spiritual wealth, but for the wordly.

    “Isa (as) ibn-e-Maryam will end the wars and increase the wealth” The people have no idea that this sentence is a Metaphor and the Holy Qur’an is filled with Metaphors. They will believe in fairytales written in Harry Potter or the Lord of the Rings and apply it to our Time and World.

    End the wars and increase the wealth

    End religious wars like the ones of the crusades and the ottoman empire. Increase the wealth of the spiritual being. Alhamdolillah we Massih-e-Moud has opened the eyes of the blind who believed that Allah does not accept our prayers so it has no sense to pray, because the door to the Lord has been closed. Massih-e-Moud (as) said that the only weapon we have is the prayer.
    So our mission is to pray, pray for ourselves and pray that we can do something for Islam and Ahmadiyyat. I’m very proud to see that exactly that is happening with this wonderful Blog.

    Point 2:

    What I have observed is that when you have them in your “hands” they come with silly stories. The Truth is infront of them, buit still they choose to belief in disbelief. They will point the fingers and attacks his/her lifestyle. We should pray for them and so that they judge themselves instead of others. I think Brother theartofmisinformation should also post articles of how we can come close to Allah based on the Holy Qur’an and that people shall seek for the truth, for themselves. Ameen.

    These were my more than 2 words 🙂

  6. Very glad to see someone spending their time and energy to respond to those fallacious sites. For the most part, they seem to be on the path of trying to “prove Ahmadiyyat wrong” by childish and irrelevant articles and posts, on the lines of “this Ahmadi did that” etc. Even the Atheists/Christian sites who write against Islam, are not silly enough to try to point out that Islam is false by posting news about individual Muslims.

    Might I suggest you to register a domain and get a hosting account if you can, or if someone else can get you these.

  7. If you haven’t done so already, I’d really recommend you invest in a helping hand or two with the running of this website. It seems to have gone very quiet of late, which is a real shame because there were some excellent posts being made (both as articles and in the comments sections), and consequently some intriguing arguments and points of discussion raised. Having a few other people on board to help you manage the site would ensure comments are moderated and the site remains active.

    Please keep up the good work – don’t stop it!

    May Allah Bless you, and everyone else involved in the contribution to this blog, ameen.

  8. AA,
    MashaAllah you guys are doing a great job and are a credit to the jama’at (in my opinion). I am so glad you have taken the initiative to produce this fact filled blogg, instead of backbiting and spreading gossip. The cult website has been around for years, I thought that this vile website would deter people from converting, but Alhumdolillah it has not. By the grace of Allah 480,000 people converted to Ahmadiyyat over the last year, the proof is in the pudding.
    The cult website is just a reflection of it’s Editors personality and polluted minds, may Allah guide them.
    I have a suggestion for you, Khuddam have set up an initiative Majlis Ansar Sultanul Qalam MKA UK and have members which respond to allegations against Islam and its noble Prophet (PBUH). Maybe it would be a good idea to liaise with them.

    Keep up the good work!!
    Wasalaam

  9. Jazak Allah for all of your kind comments of support. Regardless of how hard I try, this blog is only successful because Almighty Allah has brought each of you and many others to visit and read the blog posts. Please continue to visit the blog and always feel free to share your thoughts and constructive comments. This blog is a growing and developing project which is genuinely shaped, in part, by the feedback I receive from you all here on the blog and privately to the blog e-mail theartofmisinformation@gmail.com

    Jazak Allah

  10. AoA,

    I am so so glad that someone has begun “demistifying” the cult website. The amount of hatred is uncanning on their website. Especially this new trend amongst anti-ahmadi movements to recruit ex-ahmadis to show how there is some major problem in Jamaat. I feel pity for them that they spend so much time on debasing the clean name of Jamaat Ahmadiyya. However, they will receive their judgement from Allah (swt). So keep up the good work. God bless you!

  11. I think it’s a great thing what you are doing here and to be quite honest, it’s sorely needed to respond to the allegations of the individuals at the Cult website that have taken things to a whole new level in terms of bitterness and rancor. It seems the personal agendas and problems of a few people have clouded their minds to such a point where it has influenced them to paint an entire belief system in that light.

    Just on the surface, compare and contrast the situation here and over there. One thing to note is that I see you have a great policy of letting anyone comment, even those that disagree with you; your responses and posts are polite and dignified; while their website constantly features the editor(s) attempting to intimidate anyone who disagrees with them by editing the posts, and of course the filthy, insulting, and derogatory language used towards the Promised Messiah (as) and his Khulafa that we consider so beloved.

    To me, that says a lot about where they are coming from, and where you are coming from. So please, keep up the good work and inshallah may Allah reward you in this life and the next.

  12. Excellent blog – Keep up the good work.

    May Allah protect you and every member of our Jamat -Ameen

  13. Dear brother Assalamo Alaikum,

    I am a Muslim brother from Ireland. Keep up the excellent work. Those Cult site people rely on the ignorance and innocence of some impressionable young Muslim brothers and sisters and they try to mislead them. We should always endeavor to protect fellow Muslims from being prayed upon by these people. They are motivated by revenge and bitterness. Remember that if they were not there then some other types would come out of the woodwork, such is the way with all the Prophets of Allah Adha wa Jahl.

  14. Brother / Sister – Jazak Allah for your kind comment and concern. I am not aware that permission is needed for setting up a personal blog in which my personal opinions are presented. However, please do let me know if you know of any specific guidelines concerning this matter. If there are any, then I would of course insist on adhering to them.

  15. AA,

    I think you need to ask Hazoor’s permission before you open up this blog.

    Jazak’Allah
    An Ahmadi Muslim

  16. It was brought to my attention by the ”Cult Forum” user ”Shahid” that this blog was posted on the ”Cult Forum.” I visited the post and, in light of what I read, I feel that three clear remarks should be made regarding this blog, namely:

    1. Please be assured that if any post I write is intended for a specific person, I would, without a doubt, mention his/her username – that much I can assure you;
    2. I am an individual posting of my own volition and not under any Jama’at initiative. If this blog was a Jama’at initiative, I would have no issue with that and would be happy to admit it; and
    3. I and only I am an administrator on this blog. Any IP addresses, e-mail addresses and other personal information which is shared with me will NOT, under any circumstances, be shared with anyone else. I am not running an intelligence service here, this is an ”exactly what it says on the tin” blog, where people post, comment, discuss, and feel uninhibited in doing so. As I have mentioned more than once, the only rule I have is that comments must be ”adab-compliant.” Alhamdulillah, every single comment made thus far has been polite.
