In the Name of God بسم الله
I've spoken to Ahmadi "Imams" on this, she doesn't know what she is talking about. They have there own interpretation of the word sect and borrow elements from Salafi and Hanafi fiqh where it suits there wish washy logic. In other cases they literally invent new interpretation such as having to fast once a person reaches 18 years of age only. There are many many differences and multiple reasons that take them out of the fold of Islam. This is a consensus amongst Shia and Sunni scholars, and errant opinions from any scholar should be ignored.
Let us be clear, Isa AS Ascending to the heavens before Muhammad SAw, and returning after him is not a contradiction, as he is the same Prophet from before and not a new Prophet. Allamah Sa'id Akhtar Rizvi was very clear on this matter. Q51: Why is Islam and Ahmadiyyas not same in their beliefs? A. Here also there are many differences; but the basic differences are as follows :- 1. Muslims (without exception) believe that Hadhrat Muhammad (S.A.W.W.) is the Last Prophet. No prophet is ever to come after him. The Ahmadiyyas (commonly known as Qadianis) believe that Mirza Ghu-lam Ahmad of Qadian (died in 1908 A. D.) was prophet. 2. The Muslims believe that Imam Mahdi will re-appear before Qiyamat and that Hadhrat Isa (A.S.) will come as one of his followers to help him. The Qadianis believe that Mirza Ghulam Ahmad Qadiani was Imam Mahdi and Nabi Isa — all in one, like the "3-in-1" god of the Christians. 3. The Qadiani's belief about angels and Satan appears to be quite different from the belief of the Muslims. There are other differences which it is not possible to explain in a short letter. Q52: I am really confused about my attitude towards the Ahmadiyya Sect. What should my standpoint be? Is it merely a dissident group which differs in its opinions as to the interpretation of certain Islamic beliefs or do its contentions differ fundamentally with the basic Islamic tenets? And if so how should we (Muslims) regard them? A. Ahmadias (commonly known as Qadianis) differ with the Muslims in many of the basic tenets, the most important one being the finality of Prophethood. Also they do not believe in 'Malaika,' and resurrection of the dead. There are many items in religion which are called "Dharuriyaat-e-Deen", i.e., such Basic Tenets which are known to every Muslim as part of religion. Take for example, the 5 times prayers, Fast of Ramadhan, Hajj of Kaaba, etc. If any person rejects even one of Dharuriyaat-e-Deen, he according to the unanimous belief of the Muslims, becomes Kafir, though he may be reciting "La llaha Illallah Muhammadun Rasulullah". The belief that our Holy Prophet was the last Prophet and no other prophet is to come after him, is one of the Dharuriyaat-e-Deen. Anybody or any sect rejecting this belief is Kafir.
