Divine Signs for the New Massih

In the time of a Messenger of Allah, innumerable signs appear in favour of the Divine Manifestation. Even people who are not prophets might be blessed with divine revelations in favour of the truthfulness of the Messenger. The Holy Qur’an provides an instance: And remember My favour when I inspired the disciples saying, ‘Believe in Me and My Messenger’, they said, ‘We believe and bear Thou witness that we have submitted’(5:112). Likewise, the Promised Massih Hadhrat Ahmad (as) was vouchsafed the following revelation: People, whom We shall direct through revelation, will assist you (Brahin-e-Ahmadiyya).

In a speech on June 22, 2011, Hadhrat Khalifatullah Munir Ahmad Azim Sahib (atba) of Mauritius shared with the world the revelations received by one of his disciples. Read the extracts from the Speech:

The revelation is for the Prophet of Allah and Allah has instructed the person to tell this message to the Prophet of Allah. When receiving this message, the disciple of the Khalifatullah felt her chest squeezed (and heart beating fast) and she felt anguish physically restricting her from speech. The feeling persist till after Witr prayers, and it was after that her tears were shed silently that she was able to speak. The revelation (originally in Creole) is as thus:

Translation: “O Prophet of Allah (x3)! When you need information, search it with people possessing Taqwa, who have the fear of Allah in their heart, who are pious, who tread on the right path. Be careful!”

Thereafter, Allah makes her understand that there is a verse in Surah Al-Hujarat which therein is the same message. “Be careful! Be very careful! Do not take information here and there. Search it with people possessing Taqwa, who have the fear of Allah in their heart, who are righteous. Look for your information, O Prophet of Allah (x3)…”

The disciple felt herself weak, unable to bear the pain which comes with this revelation and therefore she read a prayer which was revealed to the Prophet of Allah and which she learnt by heart:  

“O Allah, let Your Love be the blood of my heart; Let Your Light be my sight and let Your Grace be the skill of my speech… - O Allah! I can’t speak! Let Your Grace be the skill of my speech, and let Your mercy be my pen to write!

Then, Allah makes her understand to wait and to tell the Prophet of Allah this message after Salaat. Commenting on this Divine message, Hazrat Khalifatullah (atba) observed that Allah, by His immense grace, is pouring down His countless blessings on each Sahih al Islam so that they may know about the veracity of the Prophet and Khalifa of Allah and stay firm along with him in this Divine Manifestation. By the grace of Allah, Allah has given many revelations.

He said:  “Each of you cannot say that you have not got any revelations. Allah has given you revelations so that you may attest to the veracity of His Messenger, so that you stay firm and know (to some extent) how the Prophet of Allah is receiving revelations and how painful it is to receive revelations from Allah, and yet I pray that Allah cease not to bestow upon me His revelations for this indeed is a great blessing whereby Allah converses with His Messenger.

I have prayed that each one of you, and our brothers and sisters and children of other countries and especially those of Kerala to get these revelations as a sign in confirmation of this humble self’s truthfulness, and Allah made you witness revelations on yourselves personally.”

“These revelations are also tests for you. Very often, when someone other than the Prophet receives revelations, he becomes happy; this indeed was a sign for him in favour of the Messenger of Allah, especially like we witnessed today the revelation in which it is said: “O Prophet of Allah, O Prophet of Allah, O Prophet!”Allah is clearly indicating that this person (this humble self) is indeed a prophet of Allah.

But it very often happens, that when now the Prophet of Allah receives a revelation that is against the wishes of someone (a disciple of the Prophet), it very often happens that the disciple in question, the very one who has witnessed the revelations coming down on the Prophet of Allah night and day, and which he also personally witnessed on himself (the disciple), therefore, when a revelation comes which is not in his favour, it so happens that he revolts against Allah and His Prophet..."
