A Messenger in Service of Humanity

Divine Messengers are human beings, with the simple but profound and quiet but substantial difference that they are recipients of Divine revelations as against the ordinary folks like us. They work among the people day in and day out, calling them to an ethical and spiritual life that draws its sustenance from an abiding faith in the Unicity of Allah the Almighty. They bear witness to their times and their people by inviting to prudent conduct. They deliver glad tidings to those who follow guidance. And they caution the world against the egregious violations of ethical norms. When their warnings are fulfilled and disaster strikes the land, they are pained at the suffering humanity, even as they recognize that the nature and the times are witnessing to their truthful prophecies and warnings. Such is the image of the Divine Messengers of the past emerging from their lived history as recorded by the Holy Qur'an. 

The Divine Messenger of our times Hadhrat Khalifatullah Munir Ahmad Azim Sahib (atba) of Mauritius has predicted and warned against great calamities waiting to unfold in Mauritius and elsewhere, in recent months. The DELUGE in Mauritius, the tragedy and loss of which shook the nation to its core last week and led to collective mourning, in its own way, testified to the majesty and might of the Lord  who descended the Message on His Messenger. In the aftermath of the Great calamity of stunning proportions- "NABAA AL AZIM", to use a Qur'anic metaphor [78: 3]- in Mauritius, Hadhrat AZIM Sahib (atba) himself led the relief and social work undertaken by the members of Jamaat Ul Sahib Al Islam. 

Presented below is a Report:

Allah the Almighty always fulfils His promises. The revelations which He gave to the Khalifatullah Hazrat Munir Ahmad Azim Sahib (atba) since 2003 to warn the world and Mauritius and all nearby (surrounding) islands that “Humanity is in Danger”, the Khalifatullah Hazrat Munir Ahmad Azim Sahib (atba) has fulfilled them, by the grace of Allah. He transmitted the message throughout the world and also Mauritius and the surrounding islands, through the different discourses, conferences and Friday Sermons he made throughout the island. The message was also conveyed through Newspapers also.

Unfortunately the people of Mauritius did not respond positively to these warnings, and there are some who even turned their backs, and began to ridicule the message. But the work of a Messenger of Allah does not stop despite these negative reactions. He needs to continue to warn regardless the response of the people. And he also delivers the good news also to those who lend a good ear to the divine message and turn towards their Creator, asking for forgiveness and seeking to purify themselves. For those people, there shall be no fear, no pain. Insha-Allah.

In the aftermath of the deluge which has overtaken Mauritius by surprise on Saturday March 30, 2013, the Government of Mauritius declared April 01, as a public holiday and a day of mourning. The national flag was at half-mast. On that particular day, after the call of the Khalifatullah to extend our help to those facing difficult times due to the deluge, the Jamaat Ul Sahih Al Islam responded positively to the call and showed its solidarity to these people. We all went to those who lost everything and donated them some necessities, each according to our means: food, clothes (not old ones, but quite good), and mattresses among other things.

The Khalifatullah and the members of the Jamaat went to give these donations personally to the families in need, be it at Canal Dayot (mostly Christians and Hindus), and our non-Ahmadi Muslims brothers and sisters at Les Guibies, Pailles. The Khalifatullah took two members there (in Pailles) to distribute necessities which shall become handy for them. Huzur (atba) was simply dressed and he met those brothers, sisters and children.
At Canal Dayot, there are more than 40 houses which have been inundated. Those families lost everything. All furniture, clothes, food, children’s school books etc. were taken away by the pressure of the flood.

The Khalifatullah (atba) also visited the families of the deceased (in the flood), and he went also to visit some of the small business owners who were busy cleaning their locals (wherein more than 2 metres length of water came in).  Their stock was ruined and there was mud everywhere. It is to be noted that upon waking up in the morning of April 01, 2013, day of mourning, the Mauritians made it a must to extend their sympathy and help to those who were severely touched by the deluge. Many, from various parts of the country came to give their share of donations to ease those in difficulty.

The Caudan Subway where 6 people died – The Khalifatullah (atba) prayed for the souls of these people...

In those places touched by the flood, the Khalifatullah Hazrat Munir Ahmad Azim (atba) has reiterated his message and warning, especially concerning infectious maladies which can crop up by the mosquitoes (e.g. malaria, chikungunya, dengue fever etc.) like Allah revealed to him. He told the people to take precaution, especially for the children so that they may not be affected by this. He gave the warning as a humble servant of Allah, and he still continues to tell them to repent and to turn in worship to only one God and to accept the saviour whom Allah has sent for them; if not, it is not far that another flood or deluge strike. The people of Mauritius are indeed fortunate to have amidst them a messenger of Allah. Fear God, and do not turn your backs or scoff the Divine Message!
