Waalaykumussalam warahmatullah,

It has long been the Sunni position that Ahmadis and Qadyanis are not considered Muslims but follow different beliefs. This was expressed by the last Shaykh al-Islam of the Ottoman Dawla Shaykh Mustafa Sabri and his deputy Shaykh Muhammad Zahid Kawthari, the scholars of al-Azhar in Egypt (with the notorious exception of Shaykh Mahmud Shaltut), the Ulema of the Indo-Pakistani Subcontinent (including the founders and continuators of the Barelwi and Deobandi schools), and the scholars and governments of several Muslim countries including Algeria, Pakistan and Saudi Arabia. This understanding was reiterated recently by Egypt’s main Fatwa body, Dar al-Ifta’ al-Misriyya, here:الانتماء_إلى_القاديانية_الأحمدية

Accordingly, the nikah contract of a Muslim person with an Ahmadi is null and void from the start, or it becomes so from the moment such affiliation is ascertained, for example in the case of conversion. Yes, a divorced woman’s `idda must be observed before remarriage to someone else. Your parents’ anger is immaterial as the Seal of Prophets, upon him blessings and peace, said “There is no obedience to creatures in disobedience of the Creator.” And Allah knows best.

May Allah grant you ease and protection in dunya and akhira.

Hajj Gibril Haddad
