Perspective on Ahmadiyya Khilafat

In a recent mail, an Ahmadi critic wrote: “…on one side the community that you belong to, keeps a view that this present Ahmadiyya Khilafath is not supported by Holy Quran, meanwhile on the other, it accepts this khilafath as divinely ordained, partially. That stand is too bizarre to be understood even…”

For the understanding of seekers after truth, we are providing below an extract from an Interview Hadhrat Munir Ahmad Azim Sahib (atba) of Mauritius granted to Mubashar Dar Sahib of Ahmadiyya News in 2006 wherein as the Mujaddid of the new Century of Islamic Hijri, he explained his position on Ahmadiyya Khilafat.  

Ahmadiyya News: What is your opinion towards the Khulafa of the Jama'at Ahmadiyya. Their ability and approach towards achieving the ultimate victory of Islam and Ahmadiyyat as prophesied by the Promised Messiah a.s.?
Munir Ahmad Azim:

I believe in the Khalifas of Jamaat Ahmadiyya like I said above: Hazrat Moulvi Hakim Nooruddin, Hazrat Mousleh Ma'oud Mirza Bashiruddin Mahmood Ahmad, Hazrat Mirza Nasir Ahmad, and also Hazrat Mirza Tahir Ahmad. Although they were not directly divinely appointed by God Almighty, Allah was their help as long as they were on the right path and preaching the true teachings of Islam. Allah gave them true dreams and revelations to help them in their task, because they were righteous in their devotion to help the cause of Allah Ta'ala and Allah blessed them with great knowledge and Insight.

But please remember one thing:

Allah says in the Holy Qur’an, Chapter 29 (Al-Ankabut), V.2-3:

"Do men think that they will be left alone because they say, 'We believe', and that they will not be tried? And We did try those who were before them. So Allah will assuredly know those who are truthful and He will, assuredly, know the liars".

Allah will always try (test) the people who say that they are propagating Tawheed. In the past, Allah tested His various prophets like, Hazrat Adam, Ibrahim, Hazrat Ismael, Hazrat Musa, Hazrat Haroon, Hazrat Nuh, Hazrat Yunus, Hazrat Yusuf, and Hazrat Suleiman etc...

Some of them at one time in their life received reprimand from Allah for not obeying His commands (like Hazrat Adam, Hazrat Yunus, Hazrat Suleiman etc...) and Allah punished them (where Hazrat Suleiman from being a king became a beggar, Hazrat Adam was banished from the place Allah had chosen for him, Hazrat Yunus was pushed from the ship he was in and a whale swallowed him) but after they repented Allah forgave them and gave them back their honour and status as prophets of God.

So, Hazrat Mirza Tahir Ahmad also, like a servant of Allah, like a guardian of Deen-é-Islam was bound to be tried by Allah. Once in a Khutba Jummah, he said that 52 persons were getting revelation in the Jamaat é Ahmadiyya but when I informed him about my revelations, he turned his back on it and labeled these revelations as "so-called revelations" and he said that we (I and my brother Hazrat Mokarram Amir'oul Momeneen Zafrullah Domun) will encounter a fearful destiny.

As a spiritual father of Jamaat é Ahmadiyya, he should not have said this. Instead Allah had given him two ears to hear both my version and the version of his dear Amir, but he did not even take the trouble to hear my version to know the truth and he based himself on the report full of lies of his Amir, and expelled my brother and I from the Nizam-é-Jamaat.

It is through this matter that I got a clash with him, because Jamaat Ahmadiyya had spent more than 100 years to make people understand that the doors of prophethood is never close, but when Allah tried them and sent at the beginning this humble one, they calumniated me and expelled me from the Nizam-é-Jamaat.

It is in the times of Darkness that Allah raises His Messenger/s to revive the lost teachings of Tawheed. And we are in this present era living in darkness where the whole world has been plunged into darkness and none can save it except the Mercy of Allah through His Messengers.

As for the 5th Khalifa-tul Massih of Jamaat é Ahmadiyya, I will not pronounce anything for the moment because till now he has not said anything either negative or positive on my claim. I had written to him but he kept his silence and even when last December he came to Mauritius for the Annual Jalsa Salana of Ahmadiyya Muslim Association, he did not come forward to know the truth about my claim as a recipient of Divine revelations having got a Divine Mission.
