Nizaam-e-Jamaat: Evolving a Parallel ‘Culture’

Within a century after the departure of a Mujaddid, his followers lose their spiritual self. They become creatures of the earth, lusting after material riches and vain pursuits’. 

This prescient observation of the Promised Massih (as) is today staring the Jamaat-e- Ahmadiyya in its face- the same Jamaat that he established to revive the faith of Islam more than a century back in India. 

While Ahmadis continue to delude themselves that they remain in the right path, a parallel ‘culture’ has developed within the Jamaat that has corroded and subverted its inner core of sublime spirituality. The empty shell of Khilafat as it exists today is virtually incapable of stopping the eroding ground beneath its feat. Forget about reversing the tide altogether! 

In his Friday Sermon of January 06, 2012 the Khalifatullah Hadhrat Munir Ahmad Azim Sahib (atba) of Mauritius confirms what thoughtful Ahmadis have feared for years- the development of a parallel ‘culture’ within. The sermon contains a searing critique of the gross mismanagement and the resultant disarray within the rank and file of the Nizaam-e-Jamaat. It describes the apparent features of this parallel ‘culture’ that has eaten into the vitals of Jamaat-e-Ahmadiyya's value systems, corroded the ethics of its members and has come to define their ill-informed decisions and wrong choices today.

Read the Extracts from the Sermon:

“The fifth Caliph is not taking care of the Jamaat of the Promised Messiah (as) like the latter had established the management of the Jamaat. The Caliph is basing himself on false reports of his amirs and mullahs. It is his so-called mullahs and amirs who are leading the Jamaat astray and the caliph is not taking the right decisions for the cause of Allah and according to the precepts of Islam. It is those around him who are taking the major decisions, especially about whom the Ahmadis should greet salaam or not, and boycott.

In the Jamaat Ahmadiyya of Mauritius and even in other countries, ever since 2001, there is a system which has evolved with the administration of the ex-so-called amir Amine Jowahir and now this system shall be worsened in the present year (2012), whereby hypocrisy, jealousy, hatred, despair shall become manifest and where Ahmadis shall act without second thoughts and the consequences of these acts shall be grievous, and the caliph and his representatives shall be responsible before Allah for all these (degradations).

Years go by, a new year comes but fraud and corruption also shall not end, be it in Mauritius and in other countries of the world; there shall be familial dynasty – so-called great families, important personalities of the Jamaat shall not cross ways (shall not mingle) with the lower-class families. There shall be much money coming in the treasury, but the administration of these monies shall be a complete fiasco. Exaggerated expenses shall be made, the money of the Jamaat shall not be spent in the proper way as taught by Almighty Allah, His Messenger (sa) and the Promised Messiah (as).

On the field of preaching Islam to others, zero progress. The Jamaat (Ahmadiyya) of Mauritius has received the golden medal in closing missions in the nearby islands like Reunion Island, Seychelles, etc. There is no Tabligh in Mauritius; there are no people who are interested to do Tabligh. Instead they are ranked first in backbiting, spying, mocking and laugh at the expense of people. Now we are hearing only 4 or 5 among them who have gone to Jamia in Ghana (Africa). Where have the hundreds of Waqf-e-Naw gone?

Nowadays there are announcements that 12 to 15 persons are needed by the Jamaat Ahmadiyya so that they may be given 6-months courses in tabligh. Was the Jamaat Ahmadiyya in the need of giving courses in tabligh, for since the Jamaat existed in 1915, there are hundreds of literatures which exists on tabligh – this shows that despite all those literatures, how they are not knowledgeable in those fields, and spirituality is only on their lips (not in action). They are rather after this world. To have an idea where the Jamaat Ahmadiyya has reached, look at the life of the so-called Waqf-e-Naw! What a shame!

Look at the lives of the youths of the Jamaat in general! What a shame! What you see now is all vanity, arrogance, feeling of superiority, especially among those who have some money and cars. When you look at them, better than them there is no one else! This is the impression they want people to have on them. But they do not ponder over the fact that all that they possess, well it is Almighty Allah who has provided them with all these and when the day comes and Allah snatches all these from them, then what shall be their condition? Dogs shall be well off, whereas they not! They shall be worthless!

If we take an example from Mauritius itself, history tells us how those who showed off their riches and showed themselves to be arrogant, how they have degraded. Be on your guard; take care of the amanat (deposit) which Allah has given you. Do not show yourselves to be arrogant with all these riches; nothing is yours in this temporal world. All belongs to Allah. The day He takes all, then what shall be your condition?

Haya (Shame) has disappeared in the Jamaat Ahmadiyya. Just look at the way the youths of the Jamaat Ahmadiyya clothe themselves. A shame! There are even ladies who have abandoned their Burqa. For them, no sanction! Despite the fact that I have made a sermon last Friday 30 December 2011 on New Year’s Eve and the need not to buy and lit up firecrackers etc., there are a lot of Ahmadis who, despite the advice, have indulged themselves all the more in these “amusements”. And it is worthy of mention that despite Allah has showed them a sign where a torrential rain fell on Saturday 31 December 2011, the Ahmadis have disregarded them and merry (like others) with firecrackers etc.

They think that they are jesting with me, but verily they are doing that with Allah. I am only here to pass on the message of Allah. Anyways, their consequences shall be grievous, as well as the consequences of their children. The Ahmadis are celebrating Christmas and the New Year (with pomp), even more than the people of other religions, and they are still members of the Jamaat of the Promised Messiah (as).

Our members of the Jamaat Ul Sahih Al Islam must not follow in the footsteps of these people; they are not our role models. Our perfect role model is Hazrat Muhammad (sa) and his wives. Our final account is only to Allah and by the grace of Allah, we are not afraid to confront them (these people) in whatever situation.

The year 2012, Jamaat Ul Sahih Al Islam has a lot of work to accomplish, works which Allah has given us to do. Therefore, we must all work like one body in obedience to Allah and His Chosen Khalifa (Khalifatullah) of this era, whereby by the grace of Allah, Insha-Allah, the Jamaat Ul Sahih Al Islam preaches the message of Allah, the unity of Allah in all corners of the world. May Allah through His Might enable “thousands of lost souls in the fold of Jamaat Ul Sahih Al Islam” and together as one body, we all make more efforts in financial sacrifices and tabligh throughout the world. Insha-Allah, many new centres shall open in new countries and new Sahih al Islam members. (Ameen)

Those who see that they can’t do tabligh can contribute financially to enable others to go and do tabligh, and also for translations works – books and the Al-Azim Tafsir’ul Quran – in many languages and Insha-Allah, this year our members of the Jamaat Ul Sahih Al Islam can open their individual website and do Deen work, Insha-Allah.

Insha-Allah, as from this year, the number of our members (of the Jamaat Ul Sahih Al Islam) shall increase all around the world, with new official registrations, construction of mosques, offices, websites and even Insha-Allah, the creation of a private TV. Insha-Allah, why not? And a lot of our Dai-Illallah shall be active on the roads (to pass on the message of Allah) and also around the world. 

I make an appeal to all young people to behave yourselves properly, like Sahih al Islam, like Almighty Allah want from you. Do not attract the wrath of Allah upon you and remain fidel and sincere with the Jamaat of Allah (Sahih al Islam) and become the true ambassadors, the great soldiers of Sahih al Islam, Insha-Allah.

I tell you all, our members of the Jamaat Ul Sahih Al Islam, elders and young people, boys, and girls: Never hesitate to contact this humble self whenever you face a problem or whenever you need an advice. You can write to me, telephone me or email me. You are all welcome. Insha-Allah. Do not hesitate for I am your Spiritual Chief, the Khalifatullah, and you are my disciples. Feel yourselves at ease, Insha-Allah. May Allah make each one of you Mubarak wherever you are in this year 2012 and may Allah remove your problems, difficulties; give you health and long life, Insha-Allah, Ameen.
