Sunni vs Ahmadi

Sunnis and Ahmadis are two sects of muslims.Though the two sects believe in Quran and Mohammed, the two sects are different in many respects, inluding their beliefs. Sunnis, also known as Ahl as-Sunnah or Ahl as-Sunnah wa’l-Jama’h, are the largest denomination of the Islam community.

When compared to the Ahmadis, the Sunnis are considered to be more orthodox. One of the major differences that can be seen between the Sunni and Ahmadi is in the prophethood. Ahmedias do not believe that Mohammed is the last prophet. They believe that Mirza Ghulam Ahmed of Qadian is the prophet who is supposed to come. This is a great violation of Islam, which considers Muhammed as the the last prophet. On the other hand, Sunnis believe in Prophet Mohammed.

While the Sunni sect has a long history, the Ahmadia movement was founded only in 1889. The Sunnis believe that Prophet Muhammed did not appoint any successor to lead the community before his death. After Mohammed’s death, a group of his prominent followers elected Abu Bakr Siddique (prophet’s father-in-law) as the first caliph.

The Ahmadia movement was founded by Mirza Ghulam Ahmad. He claimed to be the promised Mahdi awaited by the Muslims and the Messiah of Christ. The Ahmadis believe in the revival and propogation of Islam.

Sunni is a word that is derived from Sunnah, which means teachings of Prohet Mohammed. This means that Sunni is a word that refers to the followers of Prophet Mohammed. Though Ahmadia was formed in the 19th century, the name was only adopted a decade later. Ghulam Ahmad in a manifesto of 1900 said that the name was not a reference to him but refered to Ahmad, another name of Prophet Mohammed.

  1. Shoaib is quite pathologically deceitful Not against others but to himself. The hate he feels towards others must be crushing his soul in weight. Please don’t be fooled by the “righteous” acts.

  2. Shoaib is a cowrd.

  3. This seems a very bias review, especially the summary. I would kindly ask for more research to be done and mabey even ask an Ahmadi for their beliefs aswell as a Sunni not ex

  4. Assalamo alaikum wr.
    May peace and blessings of Allah the almighty be upon you.
    I would like to clarify here, as I am an ahmadi muslim, AHMADIS BELIEVE THAT THE PROPHET MUHAMMED (PBUH) IS THE LAST OF ALL PROPHETS. You should read more about them before you publicly spread info which might not be quite true. Furthermore, we believe that the messiah who was promised to come (by prophet Muhammad) is Mirza Ghulam Ahmad Qadiani.
    I request you to read info about ahmadis from their own websites or books and not from any other sources. Thanks a lot and I pray that if I am on wrong path, God grant me the right one and if you are on the wrong one, God grant you the right one. Ameen.
    JazakAllah.

    • I guess y’all ahmadii’s are going astray cuz once upon a time we were all Sunna. Now Mirza Ghulam as you said is a messiah shouldn’t be taken that hard cuz alot of caliphs did more than him but none has form a new religion.
      Mirza Ghulam is not even a Wallillah cuz he is just misleading the umma. You people should wise up cuz Ghulam is causing destruction, he brought. …..

  6. As-salaam-o-alaikum wa Rahmatullah wa baraka tuh.
    Let me clear that we Ahmadi Muslim believe that the Holy Prophet Muhammad (SAW) is the last of all the Prophets (Khatamun Nabi).We first believe on Prophet Muhammad (SAW) so that we follow the right path of Islam (in Holy Qur’an it’s states that He the Messiah will come in very weak situation to revive Islam when the followers will tends to wrong path to control to guide them He [Allah] will send the Messiah . You have to follow Him . Messiah has came . Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad sahib qadiani A.S he is the masseih of the age. the promised masseih who is long be awaited by not only Muslim, but also Christian, Hindu . And other religions . He is the promised masseih as per the great prophecy of Hazrat Muhammad Mustafa SAW to revive the faith of the Muslim Ummah who get influenced by other religions . there was only name of islam had left but they didn’t follow the real teaching of Islam .

  7. No it is wrong . Ahmadiyya Muslims believe that prophet Muhammad (SAS) is the last prophet.And mirza ghulam Ahmed qadiyani(as) is the massih moaud.

  8. Its hard to choose between being the right Muslim……I do have a sect too but prefer saying that I am a Muslim. I think that none of the websites are giving the right info, we should look in the one book that will ead us to teh right path. I have looked at different websites and read different perspectives but still the only thing I am finding is perspectives. I wish we all find the right path way and read the Quran to find all our questions.
