JUSAI: a Public Meeting in Kerala


To explain the Divine Manifestation in Mauritius in the person of Khalifatullah Hadhrat Munir Ahmad Azim Sahib (atba) and to disseminate the message of the Mujaddid of the era, the  Jamaat Ul Sahih Al Islam, Kerala organized its historic, first public meeting on June 11, 2011 at Kodiyathoor

Venue: 

Kodiyathoor is a village-town in North Kerala, with a 90 percent Muslim population. Muslims of various sects- Sunnis, Mujahid, Jamaat-e- Islami, Anjuman Ishaat-e-Islam and the Ahmadis have their presence in the place and they have a rich history of harmonious coexistence and spiritual dialogue and even intellectual confrontation. In 1988, when the late Fourth Khalifa issued the Mubahala Challenge, there actually was a Mubahala between the Ahmadis and the Anjuman Ishaat-e-Islam in Kodiyathoor.

The Programme:

The Meeting started with Tilawatul Qur’an by K. Saleem Sahib of Alappuzha. Abdul Hakkim Sahib, Secretary- Tabligh, welcomed the gathering and explained the context of the Meeting. Jamaluddin Sahib, Amir Jamaat of Kerala was chairing the session.


In his speech, the Amir Sahib talked at length about the spiritual phenomena of prophets and divine reformers emerging in every age and in every land and made references to the Indian/ Hindu Prophets as well. He recited Qur’anic verses (4:70, 3:82, 33:8,15:10) to drive home the point about the covenants Allah has taken from previous prophets and the blessings available to righteous believers in every age. He then cited the great tradition of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (sa) regarding the appearance of Mujaddidin in every century. And he mentioned the names of those Mujaddidin for every century (up to the 14th) listed by the Ahmadis in their books. Amir Sahib concluded his speech by introducing the message of the new Mujaddid Hadhrat Munir Ahmad Azim Sahib of Mauritius and the spiritual titles that Allah, the Most High has bestowed on him in the last decade.  

Secretary Dr. E. Thahir Sahib, in his speech, dealt at length with the troubling issue of injustice in the Ahmadiyya Community. Drawing on his personal experiences, Dr. Thahir Sahib graphically portrayed the machinery of injustice that is prevalent inside the Ahmadiyya Community. The episode of his expulsion from the Ahmadiyya Jamaat, without any explanation or reason being offered for the same was brought to the attention of people. He, then, dealt with the latest  Friday sermon of Khalifatul Massih V on the issue of Khilafat and Mujaddidiyat (which came only a day ahead of the Meeting- on June 10, 2011) and succinctly rebutted the presumptions and arguments of the Ahmadiyya Khalifa in the light of the Holy Qur’an.

The Meeting was well attended by local people of the area. The gathering had members of all denominational groups in the area. Around 150 people attended the Programme when the Meeting Hall had a seating capacity of only 50! Most people patiently stood by to listen to the speeches. Amir Sahib concluded the Meeting by thanking everyone for their presence and patient attention to the speeches delivered on the occasion.

After the meeting, many local people came to interact with the Amir Sahib and Dr. Thahir Sahib, expressing curiosity and interest in knowing about the divine mission of the Khalifatullah. Journalists were also present in the gathering and they took note of the proceedings to report in the media. 

The book of the Khalifatullah- Hold Fast to the Rope of Allah (which was translated into Malayalam and published by the Kerala Jamaat) was distributed along with other leaflets about the divine mission. Audio/ Video recording of the Programme was also arranged.

A small band of Sahih Al Islam brothers made tireless efforts to accomplish the unthinkable. Brothers K. Saleem Sahib, Abu Baker Sahib and K. Abdul Hakkim Sahib took care of the logistical aspects of the Programme. Muhammad Siraj Sahib was in charge of distributing our literature to every one who wanted to have a look at our message. In spite of his physical constraints, Muhammad Basheer Sahib came all the way to attend the Programme and to give moral support to the small team at work. May Allah reward them all for their sacrifices in taking the message of Allah in our times to the people, Ameen.

It was indeed a Divine Blessing that the rains kept away from the Meeting all through the evening, in spite of the times being the rainy season in Kerala.

'Surah Al- Fil': A Commentary

Holy Qur'an, Chapter 105: Al-Fil
1. In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful. 2. Have you not seen how your Lord dealt with the companions (i.e., owners) of the elephant? 3. Did He not make their treacherous plan go astray? 4. And He sent against them Birds in flocks, 5. Striking them with stones of hard-baked clay. 6. Then did He make them like an empty field of stalks and straw, (of which the crops) has been eaten up.
The Fate of Hubris: A Lesson from History
This Surah was revealed at Mecca in the early days of the prophethood of Hazrat Muhammad (pbuh). It speaks about the event that took place in the year of the birth of the Holy Prophet (saws), around the year 570 of the Christian calendar.Yemen at that time was under the control of the Abyssinians who were Christians and the latter had driven out the Jewish government that was in power at that time. Abraha Al-Ashram was the governor or Viceroy of Abyssinia. The thirst for power led him to self-proclaim himself king…

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…

'Surah Al-Takathur': A Commentary

1. In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful. 2. The race for (an increase in) wealth distracts you 3. until you visit the graves. 4. But no! You will soon know! 5. Again, You will soon know! 6. No! If you only knew with knowledge of certainty... 7. You will certainly see the Furnace. 8. Then you will certainly see it, with the eye of certainty. 9. Then, surely, you will be questioned that day about the delights (which you used to enjoy on this earth).
Competing for More
This chapter, Surah At-Takaathur (Ch.102) - Cupidity (i.e., the desire to have more and more) contains a warning to those who wish to possess everything, those who like to accumulate wealth.
Verse 2:‘Alhaakumut-Takaathuur - The race for (an increase in) wealth distracts you;
This fanaticism to acquire wealth and to increase one's fortune, position, the number of one's adherents, disciples or supporters, mass production or organization, affects not only one person but Societies and Nations.
