Bibi Momin Azim Sahiba: Mother of the Khalifatullah

In response to the extraordinary interest on the subject, we continue our series on the family background of the Khalifatullah Hadhrat Munir Ahmad Azim Sahib of Mauritius. In the first part in the series, published here at the Sahih Al Islam Blog on October 24, 2011, we have featured an account about the life of the father of the Khalifatullah Marhoom Hadhrat Solim Azim Sahib. This second part contains an extract from a recent biographical note and features an account about the life of the respected mother of the Khalifatullah Bibi Momin Azim Sahiba.

Bibi Momin Azim (the eldest daughter of Hazrat Isoop Sahib and Madina Sahiba), the mother of the Khalifatullah Munir Ahmad Azim (atba) who is presently 83 years old, by the grace of Allah is a pious lady very much attached to Allah.

She is frequently recipient of true dreams; such dreams which foretell of events to come. She also very often sees angels of Allah showing and telling her the glorious status to which Allah has elevated her beloved son, Munir Ahmad Azim. 

Her duas are very often accepted by Allah to such a point that whenever she prays for someone, Allah relieves that person, and whenever she is angry with someone (who is not conforming to the teachings of Islam), then Allah also does not delay in giving punishment in the aftermath of her warning.

Her father Hazrat Isoop Sahib was among the very first Muslims in Mauritius who accepted the claim of Hazrat Massih Maoud Mirza Ghulam Ahmad (as). He was actually very fervent in disseminating the message of Islam Ahmadiyyat to others, being one of the most ardent Dai-Illallah. He was renowned for his piety and excellent Quran reading. Despite his modest means, he used to walk miles so as to succeed in giving the message of the Promised Messiah to other Muslims and other people. He along with his two other brothers Soubhan and Roshan Aullybux were among the first to embrace the claim of the Promised Messiah (as) in Mauritius.

Due to accepting Islam Ahmadiyyat, the three brothers faced countless persecutions and social boycotts from their Sunni Muslim families and the Jamaat they once belonged. Despite all these blows, they stayed firm in the Jamaat Ahmadiyya and became the light bearers of the news of the coming of the Promised Messiah (as).

His daughter Hazrat Momin Azim Sahiba relates that once, her father was doing Dawa with someone (at about 3 O’clock in the afternoon) and he became so involved, so engrossed in his Dawa that their discussion finished at pass midnight. Having no means of transport, he had to walk miles before reaching home!


The life of a Man of God is never easy. He has to undergo so much trial but at the end of the day, he is the one victorious. This victory comes definitely from that of his Lord, Allah (Glory be to Him) who commissioned him to the status of Messenger of God.

The life of Munir Ahmad Azim is no different. His birth on earth had an ulterior goal, but who knew that except his Lord? He came into the world on a Saturday 07 January 1961 (19 Rajab 1380 A.H). It is also no coincidence that:

·         Saturday        = 7th day of the week
·         Rajab  = 7th month of the Islamic year.

The late brother and disciple of the Messenger and Caliph of Allah, Mahroom Hazrat Azize Ahmad Azim reported that upon his birth, it was the Missionary Mawlana Ismael Munir who came to read the Adhan and Iqaamah in his ears and gave him his name: Munir. Moreover, he narrated that after naming the child on this special day, Mawlana Ismael Munir stated:

“This child will one day become a great man.”

'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…
