I left Ahmadiyyat because Mirza Ghulam Ahmad was a liar and a charlatan. Find out why I believe this to be true.

Face Values

The recent furore over some provocative and deeply offensive cartoons printed in the press across Europe raises some interesting questions, not least of which relates to Muslims' strict adherence to the principle of no pictorial depiction of ANY of the prophets, or of Allah (swt). The reasons are straightforward, but the outstanding reason is for the avoidance of shirk or idolatry.

The question is this: The picture of Mirza Ghulam Ahmad is widely circulated and displayed proudly in the manner of idol-worship in the homes of his followers everywhere - for a man who claimed to be the second advent of the Messenger (pbuh) - who claimed to follow him so perfectly, that only he could lay claim to his mantle, why did he not follow him in this vital principle?

If the prophets must not be depicted pictorially, then why is Mirza Ghulam Ahmad depicted pictorially in home after home after idol-worshipping home?

    I really suspect the aesthetic sense of Ahmadis when they resort to such practice of hanging MGA’s pictures at their homes. It is hard to understand why in the world they have to hang the picture of a haggard looking man who was suffering from all kind of diseases – most notably melancholia, mental weakness, hysteria, impotency and excessive urination that caused him to visit the toilet 100 times a day or once in every 15 minutes on average.
