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, click here). 

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 arguments and viewpoints being articulated by the Khalifatullah are extraordinarily powerful and appealing. Yet, they want to know more about aspects of the Divine Manifestation they are not clear about. The recent set of questions raised by some seekers of truth must be seen in this backdrop.

To address such concerns, in a recently published Booklet, Hadhrat Sahib reflected on the early days of the Divine Manifestation and provided illuminating insights on the Divine favours and trials that are inextricably intertwined in the times of the coming of a Divinely- raised soul. Drawing upon Qur’anic principles and stories of prophets, the Khalifatullah graphically portraits the events of his time- the role played by Zafrullah Domun Sahib, the founding of Jamaat Ahmadiyya Al Muslimeen in the early days of the Divine Manifestation and the circumstances in which Divine favour resulted in the subsequent establishment of Jamaat Ul Sahih Al Islam. The book stands as a living testimonial to the subtle ways in which Allah’s help and succour follows His Chosen Messenger even when his own people seeks to ridicule him and worse still, abandon the Divine Message altogether.

Extracts from the Book:

The Promises of Allah are true in all ways. Ever since the beginning of the Divine Manifestation in the year 2000 in Mauritius, Allah bestowed upon this humble self countless revelations which was noted down by Zafrullah Domun Sahib, and many of these revelations have been realised, and the proofs of the existence of these revelations are with Zafrullah Domun Sahib. Indeed he himself, till today is a continued solid proof of this humble self’s veracity.

I have always stated and I repeat myself, that whenever I needed to give credit to Zafrullah Domun Sahib, I gave it, and I do not hide the truth concerning the excellent way he believed in this humble self and noted down the divine revelations which Allah addressed us through this humble self, by night as well as by day. He was ever there, ready with his paper and pen, and the divine texts and revelations kept flowing. The one fundamental question asked is: Why was he really expelled from the Nizam-e-Jamaat Ahmadiyya? Was it because he was a recipient of divine revelations or was it because he believed and kept affinity with a recipient of divine revelations? 

Indeed, he along with the other members of the Jamaat Ahmadiyya Al Mouslemeen were primarily expelled from the Nizam-e-Jamaat Ahmadiyya because of their belief in the Divine Revelations which I was receiving at that time and who chose who join this humble self when I was expelled as the prime “rebel” causing fitna (chaos) in the Jamaat Ahmadiyya – all because I was receiving divine revelations.

I never did say that I received revelations at that time. It was Zafrullah Domun Sahib who spread the word around, making the people aware that Munir Azim is receiving divine revelations, that Allah talks to him, and that He has even revealed him about the dangers which was about to strike the Jamaat Ahmadiyya, and Allah even revealed two of His attributes to be recited to ward off the danger.

Allah by His infinite grace chose this humble self as the ultimate instrument for the reception of His Divine Light, the Ruh-il-Qouddouss, the Divine Revelations. How many a times I begged my Rab, my sweet Master to bless Zafrullah Domun Sahib and his family, and ultimately when the Jamaat Ahmadiyya Al Mouslemeen was born, to bless this Jamaat with His infinite favours, so that Allah’s Muhyi-ud-Din, along with Zafrullah Domun Sahib and the family of Jamaat Ahmadiyya Al Mouslemeen can march together towards victory with the help and blessing of the Almighty.

Divine promises flowed in; such good news for the future of the Jamaat Ahmadiyya Al Mouslemeen as a whole, including both Umaraa-ul Mumineen. There were all kinds of divine manifestations, including that of a heavenly perfume. People used to mock at that sign, but I prayed, kept on praying to Allah to give the favours of divine revelations to the members of the Jamaat Ahmadiyya Al Mouslemeen also so that they may get the absolute proof of my veracity and that they do not have any doubts concerning my mission as God’s elect in this era.

People used to mock at the divine signs so much and these signs were slowly (with time) considered as an ordinary thing by the Jamaat Ahmadiyya Al Mouslemeen. It so happens that one day (in the month of December), Alhamdulillah Zafrullah Domun Sahib himself became once recipient of this divine perfume as a solid proof of my attestation of being recipient of this heavenly perfume.

Likewise, each and every member of the Jamaat received all kinds of signs, be it in the fulfilment of the supplications (to Allah), which they asked this humble self to do, be it in terms of revelations, visions and true dreams. Even the small children were recipient of revelations. Others were inspired and received revelations in form of poems, mostly among the women and young girls…”
