Munir Ahmad Azim Sahib: Early Life

There is considerable interest among people to understand not only the claims of the Khalifathullah Hadhrat Munir Ahmadi Azim Sahib (atba) of Mauritius but also about his personal life before the period when Allah raised his spiritual status and he began to receive divine revelations. Born on January 07, 1961 into an Ahmadi Muslim family, Munir Ahmad Azim was the youngest male child of an entrepreneur, late Solim Azim Sahib of Rose- Hill, Mauritius and his respected wife Momin Azim Sahiba

Read the extracts from a Biographical Note:


The Muhyi-ud-Din Munir Ahmad Azim was born on January 7, 1961 into a Ahmadi Muslim family of  very modest origin. His father, the late Solim Azim, was a renowned entrepreneur in the timber trade in Rose-Hill, Mauritius, and his mother Momin Azim, as was the custom in most traditional Muslim families, housewife. Munir Azim is the last boy in a family of four boys and two girls.

He spent his childhood in Trèfles (in the town of Rose-Hill). At the age of fourteen, his family change their address and came to live about 200 meters from the mosque Dar-us-Salaam Ahmadiyya. He follows his secondary studies in the Ahmadiyya College. He has the opportunity to share his free time between work and mosque. Apart from that, he was happy to accompany the missionaries of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Association during their various trips throughout the island. He followed his secondary studies for five years without taking part in the final examinations of the School Certificate.


At a tender age, he was inspired by the words of Hadhrat Mousleh Maoud, Mirza Bashir-ud-Din Ahmad Mahmud (Allah be pleased with him!), which encouraged Ahmadis to follow the example of the Holy Prophet (blessings on him and Peace!), to become like ‘a small Mohammad'; he worked hard to achieve this objective.

In 1983, he married Nasira Oleemohamed, daughter of Mr. Abdul Wahab Oleemohamed and Mrs. Mariam Oleemohamed. In the year 2001, the couple adopts a newborn child.

In 1987, Mr. Munir Azim is employed as a driver by the Ahmadiyya Muslim Association. His interest in working for the cause of Allah became more intense, and it is on his own account (waqfi arzi) that he made a few trips to Reunion island in 1990 to preach Islam.

Eventually, the travel expenses are borne by the Ahmadiyya Muslim Association, and his stay was lengthened. With Allah's help, he has the opportunity to speak through the radio to present Islam. Always with Allah's help, he managed to legally register the Ahmadiyya Muslim Association with the authorities of Reunion Island. He performed identical achievements in Mayotte (Comoros) and theSeychelles.

Mr. Munir Ahmad Azim attended the Annual Conference of the Ahmadiyya Muslim  Association in Qadian in 1991 and London in 1999. In the latter city, he was received by Hadhrat Mirza Tahir Ahmad (Allah be pleased with him!) who does not miss to congratulate him on his success. On 1 January 2001, returning from the island of Rodrigues, where he served loyally the Ahmadiyya Muslim Association, he is ex-communicated....

Holy Qur'an, Chapter 105: Al-Fil

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…
