Khalifa Sani and the Miracle of Survival

On the occasion of Musleh Maoud Day, theKhalifatullah Hadhrat Munir Ahmad Azim Sahib (atba) of Mauritius delivered a special sermon on February 20, 2012. The speech contains illuminating insights on the life and personality of the Musleh Maoud Hazrat Mirza Bashir-ud-Din Mahmood Ahmad, the  Son and Promised Reformer from the family of the Promised Messiah Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad (as). The first instalment of this important speech was published on February 23, 2012 and is available here. The speech is also significant for the powerful and unassailable spiritual arguments the Khalifatullah brings forward in defence of Hadhrat Musleh Maoud (ra), especially in the backdrop of the objections being raised against his divinely-granted status by Abdul Ghaffar Janbah Sahib of Germany who claims to be the Mujaddid of the era].

Remembering Hadhrat Musleh Maoud

On the occasion of Musleh Maoud Day,Khalifatullah Hadhrat Munir Ahmad Azim Sahib (atba) of Mauritius delivered a special sermon on February 20, 2012. The speech contains illuminating insights on the life and personality of the Musleh Maoud Hazrat Mirza Bashir-ud-Din Mahmood Ahmad, the Promised Son and Reformer of the Promised Messiah Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad (as). The speech is also significant for the powerful and unassailable arguments the Khalifatullah brings forward in defence of this Man of God, especially in the backdrop of the objections being raised against his status as Musleh Maoud by Abdul Ghaffar Janbah Sahib of Germany who claims to be the Divinely-appointed Mujaddid of the era.
This part contains the first instalment of this important speech and deals with the major milestones in the life of Hadhrat Khalifa Sani (ra). The second instalment dealing with the accusations that he met with an accursed death of a false claimant of Divine office is examined against the backdrop…

Islam and Slavery

Slavery as a social institution existed in different parts of the world for a very long period of time.  It is a stark reminder of the dark episodes in world history when men- including in Muslim lands- had had no qualms about treating his fellow beings as mere chattel. [Illustration: "Slave-dealers andslaves—aStreet SceneinZanzibar" ]. In this post-modern age, ideas of basic human dignity and fundamental rights have gained widespread acceptance all over the world. And, the very notion of slavery militates against the concepts of decency, propriety and equality in human relations.
The teachings of Islam are designed to gradually eliminate evil practices such as slavery. While all Muslims cannot absolve themselves of not indulging in slave trade in the past,  Islam as practiced by the Holy Prophet Muhammad (saw) certainly envisions a social order designed to reflect the sublime spiritual values it espouses: live in this world with a wider consciousness about your duties toward…

Zafrullah Domun Sahib: Then & Now-I

‘Nowdays I have nothing to do with Munir Ahmed Azim',so wrote Zafrullah Domun Sahib to an Ahmadi Brother in Kerala.  In his Friday sermons these days, however, the Domun Sahib “acknowledges” the Divine Manifestation. Yet, he forgets to name the person behind it, in whose hands he himself took the Bai’at in the year 2003! It is the same Domun Sahib who even proclaimed that if ever he had to stand by the Ka’aba to say that Munir Azim is the truthful one and that the messages he receives are truthful messages, he shall without hesitation do so.
What explains this 180-degree shift in his positions between then and now?Humility of obedience and vanity of pride and arrogance are both traits ingrained in human nature and the distance is not much, reminds the Holy Qur’an. In a recent Book, Khalifatullah Hadhrat Munir Ahmad Azim Sahib (atba) reflected upon the reasons behind the shifting stand of Zafrullah Domun Sahib. Read extracts from the recent Book:
And Allah says in the Holy Quran:

Jamaat Ul Sahih Al Islam: Fulfilment of a Dream

More than a decade back, Hadhrat Munir Ahmad Azim Sahib of Mauritius (atba) began receiving dreams, visions and revelations whose subject matter shows a breath- taking range of ideas and issues. Janab Zafrullah Domun Sahib, former National Amir of Jamaat Ahmadiyya, Mauritius who had the privilege of witnessing many of this, later noted in his eloquent testimonial: “During the course of those conversations I understood that he was receiving several revelations and that through thedreams, visions and revelationswe were being told about matters of which we knew not. Our attention was being drawn to several verses of the Holy Qur’an, to known and unknown ahadiths, to several prayers of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (s.a.w), to prayers, the source of which we were unaware of, and also to extracts from the Promised Messiah's books or from his malfoozaaat. At the same time we received long texts on particular topics pertinent to spiritual understanding and elevation: what is Islam, what is th…

The “Split” in Jamaat Ahmadiyya Al Mouslemeen

Tests of faith are a recurring theme in spiritual history and it takes different forms and ways in the every day lives of believers. Islamic history itself bears witness that hundreds of hypocrites left the presence of the Holy Prophet (sa) after claiming to be his followers, at critical moments of his Divine Missionwhen serious issues of life and death hovered over the early Muslim community. Yet, such incidents and events did not and could not harm the cause for which the Divine Messenger stood up and called the world’s attention. Indeed, the survival (and later, flourishing) of the Divine Mission against all odds and trials and tribulations tells its own story: it points to the extraordinary help and succour of Allah that protects and sustains His Message and His Messenger at times of severe shakings.
In our own times, one of the questions Ahmadi friends generally raise pertain to the dissension against the Divine Manifestation witnessed within the framework of Jamaat Ahmadiyya Al M…

Divine Manifestation in Mauritius- Early Days

Many Ahmadis and other seekers of truth have, in recent times, come to hear about the Divine Manifestation in the person of Khalifatullah Hadhrat Munir Ahmad Azim Sahib (atba) of Mauritius. Among all the claimants of Divine revelation and special Divine Mercy in this age, the arguments and claims of the Khalifatullah stands distinctly superior.The Divine Messages the Khalifatullah says he receives from Allah the Most High and presents before the world is of sublime quality. (For an illustrative list of the Divine revelations of the Khalifatullah, clickhere). 
For an Ahmadi Muslim, these messages, pouring down like heavenly rain, cannot be dismissed out of hand except at the cost of ruining one’s own spiritual self- abandoning long-held beliefs about the continuity of Divine revelations and the coming of Divinely-raised souls in Islam. More thoughtful among them are convinced that the Khalifatullah is profoundly immersed in the spiritual waters of Qur’anic verities. They find that the a…
