The Khulafa of Allah and the spiritual Reformers or Mujaddidin, their mission is to protect the law and to bring back the lost sheep to the fold of the Master (Allah).Hadhrat Khalifatullah has been tirelessly working…

Questions about the Mujaddid in Mauritius-I

[Mr. Shoukath Ali, coordinator (Asia-Pacific) of the Ahmadiyya Movement (Lahori Sect),FijiIslands came to know, through an Ahmadi friend of his in Kerala, about the Mujaddid claims of Khalifathullah Hadhrat Munir Ahmad Azim Sahib and the Kerala Ahmadis who recognized and accepted the Imam of the Age . In a communication to this Ahmadi friend, Mr. Ali raised certain questions and the friend forwarded the correspondence to Dr. Thahir Sahib, General Secretary of the Jamaat Ul Sahih Al Islam, Kerala in January 2011.

The questions and allegations, though raised in a private correspondence, give us an opportunity to throw light on the factual and spiritual reality of the current Divine Manifestation. Because of their public importance, we are presenting them below along with brief answers prepared by Fazil Jamal of the Kerala Jamaat, after modifying the original text for the convenience of readers. This is the first part].
1. What is so important for Islam in Mauritius that Allah should appo…

Fourth Khalifa on the Mubahila Question

In the aftermath of the Mubahala Challenge issued by Khalifatullah Hadhrat Munir Ahmad Azim Sahib (atba) of Mauritiusagainst the Ahmadi Maulana from Kerala, India - Maulvi Muhammad Ismail Sahib HA -in response to his false allegations regarding the new Massih, some Ahmadi friends have raised an issue: How can the Mubahila be conducted when the Massih is in Mauritius and the Maulana is in Kerala, India? They would not have even raised this issue, had they not forgotten what their own books teach! Let us remind them and also refresh our memory by quoting from the official Ahmadiyya statement on the matter, issued in the times of the fourth caliph, Hazrat Mirza Tahir Ahmad Saheb!
On June 10, 1988 the Fourth Khalifa Hadhrat Mirza Tahir Ahmad Sahib challenged the Pakistani Mullahs to Mubahila. Many of them raised the same issue: How can the Mubahila be conducted when the Khalifa is in England and the Maulanas are in Pakistan? Rashid Ahmad Chaudhry, the then Press Secretary to Khalifatul Mas…

What is wrong with Ahmadiyya Khilafat?

The Holy Prophet of Islam (sa) promised the glad tiding of the arrival of his Mujaddidin or Divine Reformers in every century and warned the believers against complacency in recognizing him.Any one who refused to do so would meet with an ignorant death, the Holy Prophet (sa) warned.

In his classic commentary on the Holy Qur’an, Hadhrat Khalifa Sani Mirza Bashir-ud-Din Mahmud Ahmad (ra) confirmed that Allah (swa) raised, among the followers of the Holy Prophet (sa), a galaxy of Divinely-inspired Reformers who successfully defended him and Islam in every age and guided and led the erring Muslims to the right path. He also pointed out that Hadhrat Ahmad (as), the founder of the Ahmadiyya Community, was the most distinguished of these Reformers and stated clearly thatthe process will continue till the Day of Judgement.
What did the Promised Massih Hadhrat Ahmad (as) say about the aforesaid Prophetic traditions?On several occasions, Hadhrat Ahmad (as) did confirm that both the traditions are…

'Worship' of the Khalifa among the Ahmadis

Hadhrat Munir Ahmad Azim Sahib (atba) of Mauritius, the new Mujaddid and Khalifatullah(a Khalifa raised by Allah, not men) has come to renew the days of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (sa), just as Allah had raised the Divine Reformers in every age of Islam, in many parts of the Muslim world. After all, Allah (swa) does not need the permission of any mundane leaders and mullahs in the raising of His Elects and the questions of Divine Will and decisions regarding the appointment of  His Elect cannot be voted in the assembly and opinion of men! For the devout Ahmadi Muslims, the new Khalifatullah (atba) fulfills the prophecies contained in the writings of the Promised Massih Hadhrat Ahmad (as) regrading the appearance of other spiritually guided souls in His Jamaat in future. The new Mujaddid has also confirmed the veracity of the spiritual expectations and the statements of the Musleh Maoud Hazrat Mirza Bashir-ud-Din Mahmud Ahmad (ra) regarding his 'second coming' among the people. …

Ahmadis: Love for All, Hatred for None

In a recent e-mail to the Amir Sahib of Jamaat Ul Sahih Al Islam, Kerala, the Ahmadiyya Youth Movement of South Kerala wrote:

We, at the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community, firmly believe that its time for we all to think about what we have been doing. For the past 122 years we have been working on this goal of restoring love, peace and brotherhood across the globe. Our mission is to instill our motto inside every human being on earth which is "Love for All, Hatred For None" which as you can perhaps understand, is today, the need of the hour".
People should be forgiven if they thought the Ahmadiyya Community means what it says. For, they swear by peace, love and empathy for all mankind. And yet, ironically, the same people cut off blood relations even as they speak of fostering universal brotherhood.

Amine Jowaheer: Fall of a Pharoah

The truth has come and the falsehood has vanished; surely, falsehood vanishes quickly”. -(HQ, 17:82) Amine Jowaheer is Knocked Out!
Mr. Amine Jowaheer, National Amir of the Mauritius Ahmadiyya Association, is thrown out from his position by Khalifatul Massih V with effect from April 21, 2011. In articles published here on April 20-21, 2011 on the corruption inside the Ahmadiyya Jamaat, we have specifically noted that the Mauritius Amir was presiding over a corrupt regime.  Beyond his corrupt ways, the Amir was also guilty of many crimes against Islam- it was because of his machinationsthat Allah’s Messenger of the Era was outsted/expelled from the Nizam-e- Jamaat-e-Ahmadiyya.
For the seekers of truth, it should be of great interest thatKhalifatullah Hadhrat Munir Ahmad Azim Sahib (atba) of Mauritius had issued multiple warnings and revelations concerning this fellow long before his current humiliation and official dismissal from his Amir responsibilities! The dismissal and humiliation ha…

Khalifa Sani on Mujaddidin in Future

In the previous article on the issue, published onApril 16, 2011, we have presented the interpretation of several verses of the Holy Qur’an, offered by Hadhrat  Mirza Basheeruddin Mahmud Ahmad (ra) in which he reflected on the status ofMujaddidin or Divinely inspired Teachers and Reformers. We are providing below some more points explained by Khalifa Sani (ra) in the course of interpretation of other Chapters and verses in the Holy Qur’an.
The explanation contains impressive insights on a range of complex issues:the object and purpose of Mujaddidiyyat, the time and consequence of appearance of a Mujaddid, how to test the veracity of a claimant and what benefit believers will gain by joining him etc. These issues are addressed in addition to the question about their appearance in the coming centuries as well.At a time when the mainstream Ahmadiyya Community is preaching that no Mujaddid will ever appear in future, the considered opinion of Hadhrat Musleh Maoud (ra) on the future of Muja…

The advent of Reformers in Islam

At the time of his proclamation as the Khalifatullah of this Era in 2008, Hadhrat Munir Ahmad Azim Sahib reflected on the Islamic belief about the coming of Divine reformers in every century and the extraordinary opportunity it represents for the common believers.  Here are the extracts:
“Belief in the coming of the advent of a Reformer has been held from before the time of Islam. It existed centuries before the advent of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (sa), as part of the Mosaic tradition. But in Islam the coming of a Reformer has been taught so systematically and determinately that we are obliged to regard it as one of the important beliefs of Islam.
Factors, which have strengthened and systematized the Islamic belief, are the following:
(1) The advent of a Reformer is described in Muslim traditions as the advent of a new era in the advancement of Islam. The conquest of other faiths by Islam was to wait on the coming of a Reformer. It was to be initiated by the Reformer.
(2) The coming of a …

Corruption in the Nizam-e-Jamaat

In theFriday sermon of February 11, 2011, Hadhrat Khalifatullahexposedthe nature of financial bungling and the parties involved in the corruption episode, inside theMauritius Ahmadiyya Jamaat:

"There have been embezzlements in respect of the Nusrat Mosque in Quatre-Bornes (a fact which I mentioned in my Open Letter to Mr. Amine Jowahir on 27 January 2006), money-inflate of funds requested for the setting up of two gates at the Jalsa Gah. The initial amount requested was Rs.70000, whereas the values of the gates were less than Rs.40000.

Moreover, much lies is present about Jamaat Funds even in Amila proceedings. In a meeting on 04 September 1999, the Amila congregation was informed in Item 4.20 of the Minutes of meeting that:
“Wehave sentRs.400000 to Madagascar for the construction of our school, as too much money is spent on the rent of a building for the running of our school there”.
An interesting remark is that firstly, the Majlis-e-Shurah never took such a decision and secondly, …

Corruption in the Ahmadiyya Jamaat

“Where will the money come from? And how will such a community be born- a community of people willing to perform heroic feats for their faith? These are not the questions that worry me. I am more concerned that people coming after me may stumble when entrusted with such large amounts of wealth and that they may take to the love of this world”.
-Hadhrat Ahmad (as)  [ Al Wassiyat,p.28, Qadian: Nazarat Nashro Ishaat, (2003) ]

No one would have been happier than the Promised Massih (as) to see that his fears were misplaced and that his Community will always tread in the path of righteousness and moral probity. Yet, the fact that he warned the Community on this ground shows that he knew that in the ebb and flow of time, the ruling elite in the Community will be guilty of financial impropriety and pecuniary misconduct. Some the visions of the Promised Massih (as), recorded in the Thadhkirah, also point to a time of decline of real spiritual fervour in the Community even as material riches and…

The Sign of Sahih Al Islam

“And as for the bounty of your Lord, do relate it to others”(93:12). 

Based on this Qur'anic criteria, theKhalifatullah Hadhrat Munir Ahmad Azim Sahib (atba) of Mauritius is a frequent recipient of divine revelations and he keeps relating it to others, every now and then, the highest bounty any human being can have from his Lord,Alhamdulillahi Rabb'l Aalameen. 


On the other hand, Khalifatul Massih V Hadhrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad Sahib is NOTa recipient of divine revelations.
DOES IT MATTER?
Read up the following extracts from the writings of the Promised Massih (as) and judge for yourself:
“The sign of a true religion is that through its teaching such righteous ones should continue to arise who should arrive at the stage of a Muhaddath to whom God Almighty should speak face to face. The first and foremost sign of the truth of Islam is that at all times it produces such righteous ones with whom God Almighty talks:

Promised Massih (as) and the new Mubahala

The Promised Massih Hadhrat Ahmad (as) has had to confront his enemies all through his life. Sometimes, he invited them even to the decisive challenge of Mubahala. In his book“Sachchai ka Izhar” (The Truth Revealed), the Promised Massih (as) made important statements of principles that are directly relevantto the current Mubahala Challenge issued by the new Massih of Allah Hadhrat Munir Ahmad Azim Sahib in the wake of the false allegations against him by the Ahmadi Maulvi Muhammad Ismail Sahib of Kerala.

On the significance of Mubahala:
O Ye who reject me, come unto that which God and His Messenger (sa) have prescribed for the silencing of disbelievers.
But if you should turn away, know that the curse of God befalls the disbelievers whose fear and retreat is testimony to their falsehood”. (p.22)
2.On Sending the Announcement of Mubahala through Registered Post

A mubahalah is not a trivial business which can be entered into lightly. This matter should be decided once and for all.Thus, who…

Divine Claims and the Prayer Methods

Allah the Most High has provided means for the assurance and conviction of people who are never satisfied with mere hearsay, however conclusive may be the evidence in support of it. The Promised Massih Hadhrat Ahmad (as) thus prescribed prayer as a sure method to test and verify the claims of an Elect of Allah. The Promised Massih(as) advised the people:
A person should for forty consecutive days offer the following prayer with an unbiased mind, the last thing at night beseeching God in the following words:-
“Lord, if this man who claims that God has sent him to establish the Divine faith of Islam in the world, by presenting it in its true form and thus inducing men to believe in it, has in truth been sent by Thee, then I, who owing to my ignorance of real facts, am unable to arrive at a correct decision concerning the Truth, pray Thee, O Truth, that are the Fountain Head of all Truths, and O Guide, that are the Source of all guidance, and O Merciful One, that loves not to see Thy crea…

Khalifa Sani on the Advent of Mujaddidin

The advent of a Mujaddid or a Divine reformer in the new century of Islam after the Promised Massih Hadhrat Ahmad (as) points to a serious spiritual obligation on the part of all Muslims, including the devout Ahmadis. For, the spiritual doctrine pertaining to the renewal of faith in every century of Islam approaches the issue as one of Divine Blessings for acceptance and also, a Divine Trial for rejection. It is incumbent upon all Ahmadis to recognize and accept and help such a Divine Reformer or a Mujaddid, whenever such servants of God make an appearance in the community of believers. 


In the Jamaat-e-Ahmadiyya, with the appearance ofHadhrat Munir Ahmad Azim Sahib (atba) of Mauritiusas the Divinely-raisedMuhyi-ud-Din Khalifatullah- Renewer of Faith and the Khalifa of Allah- , Ahmadi Muslims are increasingly examining the books and other literary works left behind by the spiritual successors of the Promised Massih (as) in the past, to understand the real interpretation and true concep…

Hadhrat Khalifa Awwal on 'Khudrat-e- Saniyah'

Hadhrat Maulvi Hakim Nuruddin (ra) (1841-1914) was the foremost companion and disciple of the Promised Massih Hadhrat Ahmad (as).  He was a man of wide learning in a range of subjects. And he displayed an abiding interest in understanding the spiritual universe all though his life. Hadhrat Ahmad (as) held him up as an excellent example of devotion and piety, as he said:  How good would it be if every member of the community were a Nur-ud-Din;  So would it be if every heart were filled with the light of the certainty of faith.     

It is no accident, then, that after the death of the Promised Massih (as), the Ahmadiyya Community elected him as Hadhrat Khalifatul Massih Awwal. During his life time as the Khalifa Awwal, Hadhrat Hakim Nuruddin (ra) contributed his measure to lead the Community in the straight path of Sahih al Islam.

The mainstream Ahmadiyya Community has now, however, clearly moved away from the path ofSahih al Islam. It is most evident in their concept and understanding of…

Mujaddid: Advice of the Promised Massih

The Promised Massih Hadhrat Ahmad (as) believed that there are certain qualities that a believer should possess in order for him or her to be able to recognize when an Elect of Allah such as a Mujaddid makes an appearance in the world in a new Century.The principal quality for being able to recognize a Mujaddid is the possession of spiritual light in the heart. He explained this fascinating insight into the working of the spiritual realm and the human mind by contrasting the responses of Hadhrat Abu Bakr Siddique (ra) and Abu Jahl when they became aware of the claims of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (sa).
We are presenting below the relevant extracts: 

Hazrat Abu Bakr Siddique (ra) was the person whose nature had the oil and the wick of blessings and as soon he had the pure teachings of the Holy prophet (sa), he was lit up. He did not argue with the Holy Prophet (sa); he did not ask for any signs or miracle. As he heard of the claim of the Holy Prophet (sa) he asked him if he had really cl…

Maulvi Ismail as a Mubahila Sign

Heaven and earth bear witness to the grandeur and majesty of Allah, the Most High.  The appearance of a Messenger of Allah is thus the most sublime spiritual event in any age. The revelation of the Holy Qur’an and the purifying teachings and the presence of the Holy Prophet (sa) converted an unlettered people into the thought leaders of mankind. It is no accident, then, that countless signs and miracles appear in favour of the Elects of Allah even in the course of everyday lives of ordinary believers and others. The Messengers of Allah makes an appearance at a time of Allah’s choice, when the conditions of the world necessitate it. They come and confirm each other as they belong to the same chain of enduring Divine Plan. In this context, the Holy Qur’an contains a remarkable prophecy about the second coming of the Holy Prophet in the Latter Days and presciently describes the condition and behaviour of the religious divines and oracles of the day. The time of the Promised Massih Hadhra…

Mubahala Challenge to Maulvi Ismail

Maulvi Muhammad Ismail HA, one of the leading Ulema of the Ahmadiyya Community in Kerala,has been spreading canards against the new Messenger of Allah and his disciples in Kerala, India for some time now.  In order to retain the loyalty and blind faith of ordinary Ahmadis in the system itself, he converted the sacred precincts of Mosques into theaters of cheap wit and abused his position to raise spurious charges against the Khalifa of Allah. [Inset: the Pazhayangadi Mosque and the Maulvi Sahib] In his Friday Sermon of March 11, 2011,Khalifatullah Hadhrat Munir Ahmad Azim Sahib (atba) of Mauritius thus publicly challenged this Maulana for a Mubahila Duel"so that the world, the Ahmadi people and his caliph may know who really the liar is”. 
We are presenting below the relevant extracts from the Sermon:

"I have gotten the needed information about the one who spread the false rumour of financial corruption on this humble person. He is none other than the Molvi Muhammad Ismail H.A

A prophecy on the Renewal of Islam

“He it is Who has raised among the Unlettered people a Messenger from themselves who recites unto them His Signs, and purifies them, and teaches them the Book and wisdom, although they had been, before, in manifest misguidance;



And among others from among them who have not yet joined them. He is the Mighty, the Wise. 


That is Allah’s grace; He bestows it on whom He pleases; and Allah is the Master of immense grace”.[Holy Qur’an, 62: 3-5]

These verses from the Surah Al Jum’ah point to the appearance of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (sa) among the unlettered Arabs and to the same spiritual phenomenon repeating through a great Deputy of the Holy Prophet in the latter Days.A well known Hadith of the Holy Prophet (sa) throws light on the issue. Says Abu Hurairah:
One Day we were sitting with the Holy Prophet when Surah Jum’ah was revealed. I asked the Holy Prophet,
Who are the people to whom the words “And among others from among them who have not yet joined them”, refer.
Salman, the Persian was s…
