Evil elements in society seek to extinguish the light of Allah and trample upon the fair name and basic teachings of the true religion, the Sahih Al Islam and to revile the father of Muslims. The inflammatory anti-Islam film in the United States-- entitled "Innocence of Muslims" on its 14-minuteYouTube trailer -- was such an attempt. The film was produced by a religious group called Media for Christ. Sam Bacile, the man apparently behind the film is a US-based Egyptian Copt and fraudster who may also have violated his parole. And the film was reportedly directed by a pornographer Alan Roberts.
The soldier of Islam of our times Hadhrat Munir Ahmad Azim Sahib (atba) of Mauritius, has now decided to confront these elements in a duel of prayers [Mubahila] through a special speech made on September 17, 2012. Instead of hiding behind the facade of fraudulent methods and virtual space, let these elements,- if they have any spine, that is- come to the open space and battle it with the ‘sword’ of Muhammad (sa)- the armament of prayers and supplication to the Lord Almighty. [Inset: Zulfiqar - the bifurcated sword of Prophet Muhammad (sa). Hadhrat Ali (ra) who inherited it from the Holy Prophet (sa), went on to become the Fourth Khalifa of Islam and the sword is famous in Islamic history as the Sword of Ali].
Read the Extracts from the Invitation for Duel of Prayer:
In the Name of Allah, the Gracious, the Merciful
INVITATION TO DUEL OF PRAYER TO MEDIA FOR CHRIST, PASTOR TERRY JONES, STEVE KLEIN, ALAN ROBERTS AND NAKOULA BASSELEY NAKOULA (ALIAS “SAM BACILE”), AND ALL THE HIDDEN PEOPLE BEHIND THE PRODUCTION OF THE ANTI-ISLAM FILM ENTITLED “THE INNOCENCE OF MUSLIMS”
As God Almighty said in the Holy Quran (Al-Imran Chapter 3 Verse 62):
“If anyone argues with you, despite the knowledge you have received, then say, “Let us summon our children and your children, our women and your women, ourselves and yourselves, then let us invoke Allah’s curse upon the liars.”
MUNIR AHMAD AZIM of Mauritius challenges Media for Christ, Pastor Terry Jones, Steve Klein, Alan Roberts and Nakoula Basseley Nakoula (alias “Sam Bacile”), and all the hidden people who are behind the production of the Anti-Islam film entitled “The Innocence of Muslims”, and therefore tarnished the honour and image of Islam and the Holy Prophet Muhammad (pbuh).
I call all the parties involved in the making of that dirty film openly and officially to a duel of prayer.
In the capacity of Khalifatullah (Caliph of Allah) and Muhyi-ud-Din (Reviver of Faith) of this era and having been raised by God Almighty with a Jamaat – Jamaat Ul Sahih Al Islam, I hereby challenges these persons, and also all those who purposefully or ignorantly gave a helping hand to degrade the character and honour of God, Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) and Islam. I tell them to come forward in this spiritual dual of prayer (Mubahila) against this humble self and my Jamaat (Jamaat Ul Sahih Al Islam), and thus taking this matter to the Court of God Almighty, the Most High so that He may punish in a striking way those who are culprits in His eyes.
They think that our faith (Islam) and status as Muslims are only a figment of the imagination of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) and that of his wife Hazrat Khadija (ra). Therefore, as per the above-mentioned verse of the Holy Quran, let them invoke the curse of God Almighty upon this humble self and Islam by citing their complaints. They must therefore publish their acceptance of this Duel of Prayer and publish it in newspapers and the internet, including their official websites around the world, by taking oath in the name of the Almighty God (the Creator of mankind).
Therefore, let them come forward to accept this challenge which I am inviting them to so that God Almighty may distinguish once and for all between our different faiths, and they have to sign on this duel of prayer (alongside the curses they make), and announce and spread this publicly to as many people as they can:
“O Almighty Allah! O Omniscient God! You, the Witness over everything! You who know the Invisible! We swear by Your Glory, Your Greatness, Your Prestige and Majesty; we supplicate You to descend Your blessings, be it in this world and the Hereafter upon the truthful faith which comes from You and which is truthful, which is set on the straight path and remove every evil and calamity from the truthful ones (the truthful claimant and group); make shine their veracity in the four corners of the universe. Bless them (either the Muslims or the ones who have fabricated this anti-Islam film entitled “The innocence of Muslims”) like You know best how to bless, protect them from all discords and all disputes. Give to all those who are with them, forming part of their groups, young and old, men and women to walk on the right path. Give them true faith as befit Your chosen one, Your elect and beloved whom You preserve from all sorts of calamities, be it mundane or spiritual. Let them come nearest to You, by day as well as by night so that nobody can have the least doubt that You are with them, that You are their Protector, their Supporter, their Refuge, that You approve of their deeds, their behaviour, their activities and their morals. Make it so that we may know that they belong solely to Your Community, and not the one of Satan and of his acolytes.
O Allah! Descend Your malediction (curse) in the time period of two year upon either one of the groups who are liars and deceitful in Your Sight. Cover them with disgrace, abase them and make them the manifestation of Your anger and of Your punishment. Punish them, seize them, and try them in such a way that the world may come to know that their (the accursed groups) misfortunes do not come from the hands of men, but from Your All-Powerful Hand and that the world may know that all these manifestations are the result of Your jealousy and Self-Respect with which You protect Your most beloved ones.
Therefore, O Allah, punish the liars in such a way that we attribute this punishment only from You. Make it so that the distinction between Truth and Falsehood become manifest, and that we may recognise the persecutors from their victims.
May the one who possess in him even little as a grain of fear of Almighty God and piety, who seeks the truth, and who is perspicacious, that he may have no doubt where Truth and Justice is found.
Ameen, Ya Rabbul Aalameen! (O Lord of the Worlds).”
[Signed on one hand, in the capacity of the Khalifatullah of the Jamaat Ul Sahih Al Islam International, Munir Ahmad Azim, as well as in the name of all members of the Jamaat Ul Sahih Al Islam, men, women, and children; adults and children, young and old.]
