JUSAI, Kerala: Three Day Camp at Mathra-I

Jamaat Ul Sahih Al Islam, Kerala conducted a Three-Day Camp on the occasion of the historic inauguration of the Noor’ul Islam Mosque at Mathra, July 22-24, 2011. Members of the small Sahih Al Islam Community in Kerala participated with much enthusiasm and spiritual fervour and spent time together discussing many issues and learning about spiritual verities. It was almost like a family get together of the Sahih Al Islam members in Kerala, with women members of the Jamaat (Siraj Makin) also being present.  [The first part of a Report is being uploaded here.]

With the arrival of delegates from different parts of the State on the morning of Friday, July 22, 2011, at the home of Jamaluddin Sahib, the Amir/Jamaat at Mathra, the Member Registration Process began at 11 a.m.  The Amir Sahib and his family informally welcomed everyone and interacted with all those who were present. By the time of Jum’ah prayers at 1.00 p.m., 17 persons were registered at the Counter, including a few non-Members.

For the Jum’ah sermon, the Amir Sahib selected an important sermon of the Khalifatullah Hadhrat Munir Ahmad Azim Sahib (atba) that explained the coming of a Khalifatullah in the light of Qur’anic verses and the traditions of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (sa) and the explanations thereof by the previous Mujaddid, Hadhrat Ahmad (as). In brief remarks at the end of the sermon, the Amir Sahib formally declared the Three-Day Camp open.

After the Jum’ah prayers, lunch was served for everyone. The audio records of the Kodiyathoor Public Meeting where the Amir Sahib and secretary Dr. Thahir Sahib made major speeches introducing the message of the Khalifatullah were played over the mike system. As our Mosque shares borders with the Ahmadiyya Centre in Mathra, and individual Ahmadis are prevented from reading our literature, the audio records allowed us to project our message to even those who cannot read it individually.

At 3.15 p.m. Fazil Jamal Sahib made an hour-long speech on the subject of “Ahmadiyya Khilafat and the Coming of a Mujaddid”. The speech drew upon his recent research and subsequent writings on the impugned issues at the Sahih Al Islam Blog. Fazil Jamal Sahib drew attention to the ways in which the Ahmadiyya Khilafat drifted away from the understanding of Hadhrat Ahmad (as) on various spiritual issues such as the meaning of ‘Khilafat’; the future of Mujaddidiyat and the interpretation of Khudrat-e- Saniyah or the Second Manifestation of Divine Power etc. He also contrasted the current perceptions of Ahmadis on the question of the need for an Imam and the opinions on the issue held by the Promised Massih (as).

Apart from narrating the doctrinal corruption, the speaker also graphically illustrated how the Ahmadiyya Community today is bedeviled by issues of financial impropriety, corruption and maladministration, nepotism and injustice. The quest for protecting the vested interests of a decadent system is forcing the Community’s leaders and scholars to command Allah to stop sending His Elects and chosen Messengers including Mujaddidin. Fazil Jamal sahib further explained that the Khalifatullah Munir A. Azim Sahib (atba) was forced to confront them- including Maulvi Muhammad Ismail Sahib of Kannur- through a Mubahala Challenge precisely because of their contemptuous disregard of Islamic ethics by leveling false accusations against him and spreading spurious charges about his disciples.  
Moments after the speech ended, a police team arrived at the Mosque. As Hindus, Christians and common Muslims of the area are friendly with us, the police complaint against our Programme could only be the machinations of certain elements within the Ahmadiyya Jamaat who are completely inimical to us. Some Ahmadis from the area are officers in the Police Department and would not hesitate to use the Department for their own nefarious purposes if needed (an Ahmadi police officer from the area joined duty only recently after being under compulsory departmental punishment for two years- demoted to a lower rank- for his criminal offences while serving the Department in the past).

While the local Ahmadiyya leadership refused to take any credit for their involvement in the arrival of the Police at the Mosque, they formally told the Police (when they arrived) that they have objections against our speeches over the microphone even if this is being done within our own premises as we are criticizing their precepts and practices. Since the Ahmadis formally told the police about their objections against the usage of microphone, Police feared that it might lead to law and order issues and we were requested to switch off the mike system and to conduct proceedings without it. In the interest of peace, we agreed to forego the use of the mike system.

In the evening, well known writer and public intellectual Dr. Thahir Sahib who is also the Secretary of the Kerala Jamaat, led a study session on some verses of Surah Al Mu’mineen.

After the Darsul Qur’an, the Amir Sahib announced the glad news about the Bai’at of a family of four. Amir Sahib was really delighted that his son-in-law DA Zainul Abdeen Sahib and daughter Fauzia Jamal Sahiba along with their children Fa-e-zah Maryam Zain and Zachariah Bin Zain expressed the desire to join the new Jamaat. [ Fauzia Jamal Sahiba, who recently translated the divine revelations vouchsafed to Hadhrat Khalifatullah Munir Ahmad Azim Sahib (atba) into Malayalam, is a former editor of the ANNOOR Magazine, the official journal of the Kerala Lajna Imaaillah, the women’s wing of the Ahmadiyya Jamaat]. For the benefit of the newly joining members and to refresh the memory of the existing members, the Amir Sahib explained the conditions of Bai’at and the responsibilities it entails.

'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…

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.
