Swines And Female Dogs?

The second allegation which is brought by the anti Ahmadi Muslims is that Ahmadas called Muslims swines, and female dogs but this is totally incorrect and out of context as are all of the other allegations. Let us first see the passage they quote, in context:


” We have a friend, and we are steeped in His love. We are totally disinterested in and feel abhorrence towards worldly status and honour. I see that the world and its seekers have become famine-stricken – they will soon whither away and face destruction, while the world of our love will never be struck by famine. People lean towards the bounties of this world, whereas we incline towards that countenance which grants true happiness and spiritual intoxication.”


“We have developed such a bond, with humility, to the friend in high that even the one, who could not be cleansed and purified, has become enlightened for us. The enemies have become as wild swine and their women have become worse than female dogs, they hurl abuse – I know not why. Should we turn against the Friend in the high or shun Him? I have vowed that I shall never separate myself from him, even if Lions or Wolves tear my body apart. The worldly empires and possessions acquired by people come to an end for them with their departure from this world, but the empire of friendship that we have acquired has no risk of decline.”(Najm-ul-Huda … Page 53-54)


“The Christian clergy has spared no avenue of slander for our faith and they have hurled abuse at Our Holy Prophetsaw and made foul allegations against him and become his sworn enemies. You can see what a hard-line stance they have adopted, and how ablaze they are with prejudice, and how they are determined to side with one another upon their false claims. Within a short span of time they have published 100,000 such books, which contain nothing but abuse, allegation and accusations against our faith and the holy Prophetsaw. These books are filled with such vile matter that we can hardly bear to give them even a cursory glance. You can see that their wicked deceptions are creating mayhem like a whirlwind; their hearts are devoid of any shame or dignity.” (Najm-ul-Huda … Page 64.)


We have been commanded that we establish the truth by discussion, adopting a soft and gentle manner and not to repay abuse with abuse, except in a situation where a person goes beyond all limits in hurling abuse, insults and vile language against the Holy Prophetsaw. Hence we do not use any abusive language against the Christians; we do not resort to accusations, obscenities or desecrating their honour. We direct our attention solely towards those who openly and intentionally hurl abuse against our Holy Prophetsaw. We respect those clergymen, who do not indulge in abuse against our Holy Prophetsaw , and we hold as honourable those hearts, which are free from this malicious evil; we mention them with full respect and honour. (Najm-ul-Huda … Page 79)


Ahmadas has split these pages into three parts. The main part is in Arabic but some has been translated by Ahmadas into Urdu and Persian. The allegation has no reality or truth to it, when the context is read. This shows how dishonest the so called Muslim scholars are. The harsh words are clearly for the Christian clergy men who continued to publish books with filthy language about our Master, Muhammadsaw.


Allah States in the Qur’an:


إِنَّ الَّذِينَ كَفَرُوا مِنْ أَهْلِ الْكِتَابِ وَالْمُشْرِكِينَ فِي نَارِ جَهَنَّمَ خَالِدِينَ فِيهَا ۚ أُولَٰئِكَ هُمْ شَرُّ الْبَرِيَّةِ {7}


Indeed, they who disbelieved among the People of the Scripture and the polytheists will be in the fire of Hell, abiding eternally therein. Those are theworst of creatures.(Chapter 98 Verse 7)


Now will these anti Ahmadi Muslims raise the same allegation against Allah? Furthermore, Ahmadas only replied in a harsh way when he was sent pages full of swearing, meaning hundreds of pages full of it. People would in their books, use horrible language about the Prophetsaw and Ahmadas and continued to do so with no remorse. They would not stop and in defense Ahmadas replied harsly, which is allowed by the Qur’an. Allah States:


لَا يُحِبُّ اللَّهُ الْجَهْرَ بِالسُّوءِ مِنَ الْقَوْلِ إِلَّا مَنْ ظُلِمَ ۚ وَكَانَ اللَّهُ سَمِيعًا عَلِيمًا {149}


Allah likes not the uttering of unseemly speech in public, except on the part ofone who is being wronged. Verily, Allah is All-Hearing, All-Knowing.(Chapter 4 Verse 149)


Never did Ahmadas use harsh against anyone other than those who wrote pages and pages against him and his master Muhammadsaw and would not stop. Ahmadas himself has said that his opponents are those who have exceeded limits and swear at him continuously and at the Prophet Muhammadsaw and would publish it into their books . This passage has nothing to do with the Muslims. There are Qur’anic verses that also speak in this way in regards to the Jews for example, who our ummah was suppose to resemble and has resembled. Allah States:


وَلَقَدْ عَلِمْتُمُ الَّذِينَ اعْتَدَوْا مِنْكُمْ فِي السَّبْتِ فَقُلْنَا لَهُمْ كُونُوا قِرَدَةً خَاسِئِينَ {66}


And surely, you have known the end of those amongst you, who transgressed in the matter of the Sabbath. So We said to them: ‘Be ye apes, despised.(Chapter 2 Verse 66)


(Many scholars have agreed that this ayah refers to the condition of the people)


Allah Also likens some people to a donkey who carries a load of books:


مَثَلُ الَّذِينَ حُمِّلُوا التَّوْرَاةَ ثُمَّ لَمْ يَحْمِلُوهَا كَمَثَلِ الْحِمَارِ يَحْمِلُ أَسْفَارًا ۚ بِئْسَ مَثَلُ الْقَوْمِ الَّذِينَ كَذَّبُوا بِآيَاتِ اللَّهِ ۚ وَاللَّهُ لَا يَهْدِي الْقَوْمَ الظَّالِمِينَ {6}


The likeness of those who were made to bear the law of Torah, but would not bear it, is as the likeness of an ass carrying a load of books. Evil is the likeness of the people who reject the Signs of Allah. And Allah guides not the wrongdoing people.(Chapter 62 Verse 6)


Allah also States:


قُلْ هَلْ أُنَبِّئُكُمْ بِشَرٍّ مِنْ ذَٰلِكَ مَثُوبَةً عِنْدَ اللَّهِ ۚ مَنْ لَعَنَهُ اللَّهُ وَغَضِبَ عَلَيْهِ وَجَعَلَ مِنْهُمُ الْقِرَدَةَ وَالْخَنَازِيرَ وَعَبَدَ الطَّاغُوتَ ۚ أُولَٰئِكَ شَرٌّ مَكَانًا وَأَضَلُّ عَنْ سَوَاءِ السَّبِيلِ {61}


Say, ‘Shall I inform you of those whose reward with Allah is worse than that?They are those whom Allah has cursed and on whom His wrath has fallen and of whom He has made apes and swine and who worship the Evil One. These indeed are in a worse plight, and farther astray from the right path(Chapter 5 Verse 61)


The Holy Prophet Muhammadsaw has also used such harsh words in regards to the latter day Muslim scholars, yet the Muslims raise an outcry over Ahmadas‘s way of addressing those who mocked The Greatest of Mankindsaw. He Stated:


‘Alī ibn Abī Ṭālibra narrates that the Messenger of Allāhsaw said: “A time will come in the near future when there will be nothing left of the Islam except its name. And there will be nothing left of the Holy Qur’ān except its words. The mosques of that age will apparently be full of people, but will be empty of righteousness. Their ‘Ulamā’ will be the worst creatures under the heaven. Discourse will rise from them and will come right back to them.”(Mishkat Kitabul Ilm)


And hesaw also stated:


“There will arise a great turbulence among my people and in their terror they will have recourse to their divines and suddenly they will find them in the guise of apes and swine.”(Kanzul Ummal, Vol. VII, p. 90)


And also referred to some as the worst of creation:


حَدَّثَنَا شَيْبَانُ بْنُ فَرُّوخَ، حَدَّثَنَا سُلَيْمَانُ بْنُ الْمُغِيرَةِ، حَدَّثَنَا حُمَيْدُ بْنُ هِلاَلٍ، عَنْ عَبْدِ اللَّهِ بْنِ الصَّامِتِ، عَنْ أَبِي ذَرٍّ، قَالَ قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم ‏ “‏ إِنَّ بَعْدِي مِنْ أُمَّتِي – أَوْ سَيَكُونُ بَعْدِي مِنْ أُمَّتِي – قَوْمٌ يَقْرَءُونَ الْقُرْآنَ لاَ يُجَاوِزُ حَلاَقِيمَهُمْ يَخْرُجُونَ مِنَ الدِّينِ كَمَا يَخْرُجُ السَّهْمُ مِنَ الرَّمِيَّةِ ثُمَّ لاَ يَعُودُونَ فِيهِ هُمْ شَرُّ الْخَلْقِ وَالْخَلِيقَةِ ‏”‏ ‏.‏ فَقَالَ ابْنُ الصَّامِتِ فَلَقِيتُ رَافِعَ بْنَ عَمْرٍو الْغِفَارِيَّ أَخَا الْحَكَمِ الْغِفَارِيِّ قُلْتُ مَا حَدِيثٌ سَمِعْتُهُ مِنْ أَبِي ذَرٍّ كَذَا وَكَذَا فَذَكَرْتُ لَهُ هَذَا الْحَدِيثَ فَقَالَ وَأَنَا سَمِعْتُهُ مِنْ رَسُولِ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم ‏.‏


Abu Dharr reported Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) as saying:Verily there would arise from my Ummah after me or soon after me a group (of people) who would recite the Qur’an, but it would not go beyond their throats, and they would pass clean through their religion just as the arrow passes through the prey, and they would never come back to it. They would be the worst among the creation and the creatures. Ibn Samit (one of the narrators) said: I met Rafi’ b. ‘Amr Ghifari, the brother of Al-Hakam Ghifari and I said: What is this hadith that I heard from Abu Dharr, i. e. so and so? and then I narrated that hadith to him and said: I heard it from the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ). (Sahih Muslim, Hadith #1067)

As for the term “dog”, this is the example Allah has used in the Qur’an for such arrogant people. Allah the Almighty States:

وَلَوْ شِئْنَا لَرَفَعْنَاهُ بِهَا وَلَٰكِنَّهُ أَخْلَدَ إِلَى الْأَرْضِ وَاتَّبَعَ هَوَاهُ ۚ فَمَثَلُهُ كَمَثَلِ الْكَلْبِ إِنْ تَحْمِلْ عَلَيْهِ يَلْهَثْ أَوْ تَتْرُكْهُ يَلْهَثْ ۚ ذَٰلِكَ مَثَلُ الْقَوْمِ الَّذِينَ كَذَّبُوا بِآيَاتِنَا ۚ فَاقْصُصِ الْقَصَصَ لَعَلَّهُمْ يَتَفَكَّرُونَ {177}
And if We had pleased, We could have exalted him thereby; but he inclined to the earth and followed his evil inclination. His case therefore is like the case of a thirsty dog; if thou drive him away, he hangs out his tongue; and if thou leave him, he hangs out his tongue. Such is the case of the people who disbelieve in Our Signs. So give them the description that they may ponder. (Chapter 7 Verse 177)

Ahmad(as) in Izala Auham has stated:


“Abuse is one thing and a correct description, however bitter and harsh, is quite another, It is the duty of every speaker of truth to convey the truth to an erring opponent even though he might thereby.”


He also states:


My words had assumed some severity against my opponents in my writings, but I was not the one to start such severity. Those writings were undertaken in reply to the severe attacks of my opponents. They had used such harsh and abusive language as called for some severity. This can be perceived by the comparison which I have instituted between the harsh language used by my opponents – and that used by me in the foreword of my book which I have called Kitabul Bariyyah. As I have just stated the harsh language used by me was by way of retort. It was my opponents who first used such language against me, I could have endured their harsh language without making a retort to it but I had recourse to a retort on account of two reasons: One, so that my opponents, being faced with severity in reply to their harsh strictures, might change their tactics and might revert in future to the use of civil language; and two, that the general Muslim public should not be aroused by the defamatory and provocative language used by my opponents.”( Kitabul Bariyyah, pp. 10-11)


Again Ahmad(as) states:


“We seek refuge with God against defaming righteous divines and civilized respectable people, whether they are Muslims or Christians or Aryas. We consider all of them worthy of honor. We are not concerned even with foolish people. Our severe language is employed only against those who have become notorious on account of their vile language and foul-mouthed utterances. We always mention in good terms those who are good and are not given to abuse and we honor them and love them like brothers.( Lujjatun Nur, p. 61)


And further:


“All ulema are not the same: Some of them are God-fearing while others are wrongdoers. Those who fear Allah, we always think well of them; Allah will soon guide them and they shall perceive the truth. When they are told to declare this man a kafir who is claiming to be the Messiah, they say ‘We will not say anything without full knowledge, and we fear Allah((Al-Huda, Ruhani Khazain Vol. 18, p. 320)


Ahmad(as) also states in Izala Auham:


“I say truly, absolutely truly, that I have not, to the best of my knowledge, used even one word which can be called abusive. A misconception arises because most people fail to differentiate between hurling abuse and narrating the truth, and consider them to be the same. They regard what is the relating of a fact in its proper place to be abuse, solely because of a degree of harshness in it which is unavoidable when speaking the truth. Actually, the definition of abuse and offensive language is that it is something which is against facts and false, and used merely to cause hurt. If we label every harsh and hurtful statement as abuse solely because of its bitterness, unpleasantness and hurtfulness, then we shall have to admit that the entire Holy Quran is filled with foul language. The harsh words used in the Holy Quran to degrade the idols and to disgrace the idol-worshippers, and to curse and condemn them, are not such as would please the idol-worshippers. On the contrary, they would undoubtedly further spark off their rage. When God the Most High addresses the unbelievers of Makka and says:


“Surely you and what you worship besides Allah are fuel of Hell (Chapter 21 verse 99)


is it not included in abusive language according to the criteria coined by the critic? Likewise, is it not abuse in the opinion of the critic when in the Holy Quran God the Most High calls the unbelievers “the worst of creatures” [98:7], and says that they are even worse than the most disgraced and filthy of creations. Has not God the Most High said in the Holy Quran: “be firm against them” [9:74]? Has it not been stated to be a sign of the believers that they are “hard against the disbelievers” [48:30]?”(Izala Auham Pages 13-14, Ruhani Khazain Volume 3, Page 109)


Furthermore Ahmad(as) explains an example of Isa(as)


“When Jesus calls the respectable religious lawyers and Pharisees of the Jews as swine and dogs, and their most honourable leader Herod a fox, and compares their respectable priests and jurists to whores, and as regards the revered leaders, who were accorded the highest respect by the Roman rulers and made to sit with honour in the Roman courts, he speaks of them in these offensive, very hurtful and uncivil words, calling them illegitimate, adulterous, evil, dishonourable, faithless, fools, hypocrites, satanic, doomed to hell, serpents and brood of vipers — are not these words very serious, filthy abuse in the opinion of the critic? From this it becomes evident that the objection of the critic does not only apply to me and my books but in reality he has attacked all the Divine scriptures and prophets with a burning heart.” (Izala Auham Pages 14-15, Ruhani Khazain Volume 3, Pages 109-110) (The references are in Gospel of Matthew Chapter 12 verse 39, Chapter 21 verse 31, Chapter 23 verses 13,15,17, and 33)




“How openly the Holy Quran uses harsh language cannot remain unknown even to the most unintelligent and ignorant of people. For example, the civilized people of today consider it the height of abuse to curse someone. But the Holy Quran pointedly curses the unbelievers. It says: “These it is on whom is the curse of Allah and the angels and men, of all of them, abiding therein” [2:162-163], and: “These it is whom Allah curses, and those who curse, curse them too” [2:160]. Similarly, it is obvious that to liken a human being to a beast is a form of abuse. However, the Holy Quran not only calls them beasts but declares that the unbelievers and deniers are worse than all the creatures on the face of the earth, as it says: “Surely the vilest of beasts in Allah’s sight are those who disbelieve” [8:55]. In the same way, it is clear that it is against the manners of present day culture to make a particular person a target of abuse by taking his name or by referring to him, but in the Holy Quran God the Most High has applied to some the name Abu Lahab, and to some the titles dog and swine. Then Abu Jahal is well known as such.


Similarly, regarding Walid Mughira the harshest possible words are used which apparently are terms of filthy abuse, as it says: […Here the Quran 68:9–17 is quoted in Arabic…]. In other words, do not follow what these unbelievers say, who wish from the bottom of their hearts that you abstain from abusing their gods and disgracing their religion, so that then they shall also apparently approve your religion. Do not be misled by the slickness of their tongues. This man who has appealed for compromise is a man who takes false oaths, is of weak opinion, and a degraded individual. He indulges in fault-finding in others and causes division among people by back biting. He hinders from the path of goodness, is guilty of illicit sexual acts, in his character he is a man of the worst morals, and besides all that he is of illegitimate birth. Very soon We shall brand his snout, which has grown long like that of swine. By a long snout is meant adherence to the customs and codes of honour of society which are a hindrance to the acceptance of the truth.”


(Izala Auham Pages 25-29 Ruhani Khazain Volume 3 pages 115-117)
