Sheikh Raheel Ahmad (RA) was born in 1947 in the Indian village of Qadiyan and at the age of 8 became Salaar of Qadiyani Youth (Atfaal-e-Ahmadiyya-Rabwa). He rose through the Qadiyani ranks and after emigrating to Germany in 1984 became a central figure in the Qadiyani movement (in Germany) with a lead role in the Qadiyani organisation "Humanity First".
However he became disillusioned and publicly renounced Qadiyani'ism and took Sahada with his wife, children and son-in-law at the hands of Maulana Mushtaqur-Rahman in ofenbakh (Germany) on the 23rd of August 2003.
Sheikh Raheel Ahmad (RA) stated that he became Muslim not because of Anti-Qadiyani literature but because of the writing of Mirza Ghulam Ahmed Qadiyani adding that forget about being a prophet, Mujaddid or Masih he wasn't fit enough to be a decent human being!
Sheikh Raheel Ahmad (RA) pledged his life to the cause of Khatme-Nubuwwat (Anti-Qadiyani'ism) and tried to counter their activities in Germany. He passed away in May 2009.
I rang Shaykh (RA) two years ago seeking help about a German Sister who was Qadiyani (through Parents) but wanted to know about Islam and become Muslim. We had a long discussion and Shaykh (RA) described as to how he is being harrased for propagating the Deen of Allah (SWT) BUT he will continue to preach the Deen of Rasul-ullah (Sallaho Alaihe Wassallam) as long as he is alive.
We discussed the urgent need for having Anti-Qadiyani material available in German and what can be done about it.
Today, not knowing that he had passed away I called his home and asked his wife to speak to him and she informed that he had passed away back in May.
His coming to Islam was a major below to Qadiyani community in Germany and his steadfastness on Dawah a constant thorn in their side.
May Allah (SWT) forgive his sins and give him Jannatul-Firdaus (Ameen).
