In Defence of Hadhrat Khalifa Sani (ra)- IV

In a recent article, Mansoor Ahmed Sahib (a disciple of Abdul Ghaffar Janbah Sahib of Germany, the man who claims to be the Mujaddid of the Fifteenth Century and the Imam of the Age), has responded to the first part of my essay “In Defence of Hadhrat Khalifa Sani (ra)- I & II, published here at the Sahih Al Islam Blogspot, on May 02- 03, 2011. This is the concluding part of my response, the first installment of which was posted here on June 19, 2011.

Mansoor Ahmed Sahib agrees that Khalifa Sani lived, after making the claim of being the Musleh Maoud, for a period of 22 years and six months under the Islamic calendar. Can anyone really argue the case that some one who has completed 22 years and reached the 23rd year and even crossed the half way mark of the year, did not meet the requirement of the time period? We have now an historically- unprecedented spiritual situation. For the first time in the history of mankind, a fake claimant to divine revelations was allowed by Allah to reach the twenty third year of his life having completed 22 years and six months!

Admittedly, Khalifa Sani had ailments in his old age, as any other human being of his age and physical condition. But the important question is this:  Has Allah, the Exalted given any immunity from age-related ailments for this claimant to Imam of the Age? Has he got any guarantee from Allah, the Most High that he would live over 22 years and six months after making the claim to divine revelations? The Holy Qur’an says: And as for the bounty of your Lord do relate it to others” (93:12). If Janbah Sahib has indeed received such a bounty, why is he not proclaiming it?

Janbah Sahib and his group accuse that Hadhrat Khalifa Sani enjoyed unfettered freedoms and that he had unlimited powers to adjust and bend spiritual doctrine according to his convenience within the Ahmadiyya Jamaat. And they accuse Khalifa Sani of making preparations to declare himself “Musleh Maoud” much before the public proclamation in 1944 when the Khalifa was 55 years of age. However, Mansoor Ahmad Sahib also writes: Khalifa Sani had not had his any own Jama’at or work related to his claim other than Message or work of Hadhur that Allah needed to destroy other then his fake claim and dream of becoming Musleh Maud”.

When some one is shrewd enough “to plan to declare himself Musleh Maoud”, would he wait till the age of 55? And especially when he knows that the writings of Hadhrat Ahmad (as) exist on the issue and that the age is not on his side? Even more significantly, Khalifa Sani himself has extensively commented on the Qur’anic punishment for fake claimants and was deeply aware of the consequences involved. 

Is it possible to consider that some one who enjoyed such unbridled powers within a community would plan all through his life and wait till the age of 55 to make false claims on a symbolic position which does not contain his own Jama’at or work related to his claim other than Message or work of Hadhur, as the writer notes?

My Imam Hadhrat Munir Ahmad Azim Sahib of Mauritius has been providing gentle advice to Janbah Sahib to desist from maligning the reputation of Khalifa Sani, since the beginning of this year. In the aftermath of Mansoor Ahmed Sahib’s essay The Lion of God in which the charges against Khalifa Sani were once again contemptuously reiterated, my Imam has publicly challenged Janbah Sahib to come out in the open and see who, between them, is indeed the recipient of divine blessings and support. This was on March 25, 2011. Months have flown away since then. The eloquence of Janbah Sahib is, for once, confined to a deafening silence.

Finally, I say “Ameen” to the prayer of Hadhrat Ahmad (as) that the writer has quoted:

So O our Lord, decide Thou between us and between our people with truth, and Thou art the Best of those who decide.”

'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…

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.
