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 of Sahih al Islam. It is most evident in their concept and understanding of Khudrat-e- Saniyah. They agree that ‘Islamic Khilafat’ is the Khudrat-e- Saniyah. However, in the mainstream understanding, Khilafat or Khudrat-e- Saniyah has only one form till the Day of Judgement: an assembly of faithful electing their chief as Khalifa. It cannot include, in their view, a divinely raised Mujaddid any longer (God Forbid). Thus, they have reduced the meaning of Khudrat-e-Saniyah from the spiritually appealing and historically accurate way in which the Promised Massih (as) understood it and Hadhrat Khalifa Awwal explained it to the community.


Hadhrat Khalifatul Massih Awwal explained Khudrat-e- Saniyah or the Second Manifestation of Divine Power as follows:


When the founding father of a community completes his worldly tenure, his mission will thereafter be carried out successfully with Divine support. As stated in the Holy Qur’an: “Today I have completed for you ; your faith and fully blessed you with my bounty” (5:4).


It dawned not only upon the time of the Holy Prophet (sa) but also continued onwards during the time of his Khulafa, Nawab’s, Reformers (Mujaddidin); and they were all the second manifestations’.


The second manifestation is boundaryless.


When a community becomes (spiritually) feeble, the Almighty in his infinite wisdom, keeps on descending the second manifestation to help recoup the deficiency that occurred over time.

                                                                           -Badar, 23 May 1913)



Contrary to the explanation offered by Khalifa Awwal, the current Ahmadiyya theory on Khilafat is based on five assumptions, all of which are wrong and misguided:

 1) Khudrat-e- Saniyah has only one form till the Day of Judgement- that of an Ahmadi Khalifa.

 2) The noble tradition of the Holy Master Muhammad(sa) regarding the coming of Mujaddidin in every century has been nullified by his self - confessed, slave the Promised Massih (as)!

 3)   Hadhrat Ahmad (as), all his life, may have protested the charge of reinventing Islam in his own make. But, this is what he actually did- He replaced the Khulafa of the Holy Prophet (sa)- the Mujaddidin- with his own Khulafa till the Day of Judgement! (God forbid). 

4)  The principle of growth and decay in the spiritual and material fortune of the followers of a Prophet cannot and will not apply to the Ahmadiyya Community till the Day of Judgement.

5)  Allah has only one choice if He wants to do what He wants to do with regard to the raising of Prophets at a time of His choice: elevate an Ahmadi Khalifa.


Are the Ahmadis really conscious of what they are believing?

Significance of Surah Al Fatiha

... I have chosen to talk/explain today on a never-ending subject. I can say that if the ocean was ink and all trees in this world and the universe were pens and the sky and earth were papers, therefore all these would have come to an end but not the commentary of the Surah Al-Fatiha. This is because of the high importance of this chapter in the life of a believer, and this chapter is the first chapter of the Holy Quran. It is so important that one has to start with the Surah Al-Fatiha when he begins his prayer (Namaz/Salat). And to start supplications (duahs) to Allah, the Surah Al-Fatiha needs to be recited first. This is because of the nature of its greatness as a chapter and duah. In whatever situation a person may be, be it a difficulty, an illness or a state of suffering or any other problems he finds himself in, therefore he needs to recite the Surah Al-Fatiha.
By the grace of Allah, today 22nd August 2014, I have thought about explaining a bit again on this very important chap…

A Warning to Nasir Ahmad Sultani

Nasir Ahmad Sultani, the founder of Jama’at Ahmadiyya (Haqiqi) claims that Allah Almighty has appointed him as Mujaddid for 15th century of Islamic calendar on March 31st 2011. His group and he himself had been claiming as their “speciality” that he “has live contact with Allah Almighty” and that no other religious leader of this age can compete with him in this. 
In recent comments published at the official Blog of the Lahore Ahmadiyya Movement onOctober 19, 2011, Sultani Sahib made sweeping statements:
Live contact with Allah Almighty is the main objective of a religion. Every religion and nowadays Islam must provide opportunity to connect people to their Creator. But there was none. I have searched and challenged all over the world. There is none of the followers of Islam who has his own presentable live connection with Allah Almighty.
There are some people who are claiming. But if you see minutely, you will know easily that they are not on the right path. Like Munir A. Azim sb., A.…

Prophet Muhammad: The Perfect Role Model

Hazrat Muhammad (pbuh) is the only human and divine prophet to have reached the degree of perfect excellence, such excellence which is agreeable to human nature and the Creator Himself. With the revelation of the Holy Quran upon his humble self, Allah told him to say to the people: 
“If you love Allah, then follow me;Allah will love you, forgive you your sins.” (3: 32).
The declaration of the Holy Quran is clear. It is set with such a condition which is agreeable to the ways of Allah, which is: Obey Allah and Obey the Prophet.Guidelines to obeying Allah are found in obeying the prophet and manifest the exquisite nature of being a good listener of the divine revelations and putting those instructions into practice.
There is abundant historical evidence to prove that those who have reformed their lives, by deciding to mould their lives according to the Holy Prophet’s model emerged from the abyss of ignorance and barbarism and poverty to be the teachers of arts and sciences and morals and s…
