The Prophecy on ‘QAMARAN MUNIRA’



Hadhrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad (as), the Promised Massih and Mahdi of Islam was vouchsafed many glad tidings and Divine Prophecies regarding the brilliant and successful future of his physical and spiritual progeny. The spiritual progeny of the Promised Massih (as), who shall speak with the Holy Spirit,  will spread the message of Islam to the ends of the earth and the victory of the Divine Path over all other material ideologies will take shape under their hands. Among the Ahmadi Muslims, there is no doubt or difference on this basic postulate, though the believers differ among themselves on the interpretation and application of this general principle. Among the prophecies vouchsafed to the Promised Massih Hadhrat Ahmad (as) in this regard include the following:  


“He gave me the glad tidings: you shall have a son,
Who shall one day become My darling.
I shall dispel all darkness through this Moon,
And demonstrate the transformation of a world;
It’s not just a glad tiding, but it is the very sustenance of my soul,
Holy is He who disgraced the enemies!”
                                               
                                   - [ DURR-E-THAMIN, p. 50; Essence of Islam, Vol. V, p.51 ]

“THE MOON OF PROPHETS SHALL COME, and your task shall be accomplished. A son will be born to you and Divine grace shall be brought closer to you. In other words, he will be the source of Divine Grace…”
                          
 -[TIRYAQ-UL-QULUB, Ruhani Khaza’in, vol.15, p.220; Essence of Islam, Vol. V, p.51]

When this Prophecy regarding the birth of a “Son” was vouchsafed, the Promised Massih (as) naturally thought and interpreted and recorded as much that it was fulfilled in the personhood of his son Mirza Bashir Ahmad Sahib (ra) (1893-1963).  This illustrious son of the Promised Massih (as) possessed a brilliant mind and applied himself to a range of spiritual matters and produced scholarly treatises and writings during the Khilafat of his elder brother, Hadhrat Khalifa Sani Mirza Bashir-ud-Din Mahmud Ahmad(ra) (1889-1965). Ahmadis respect and recognize his spiritual and scholarly contributions to the cause of Islam with the title “QAMARUL ANBIA’U” in their writings/publications.



The fulfilment of the Divine Prophecies may take different forms and shapes in different eras. It may be fulfilled in more than one time and space as per the wish and Will of Allah. As the Holy Qur’an famously indicates, ‘Tell them that signs are with Allah’. [HQ, 6:110] He shows whatever sign He wills. Man has no power to force a sign from Him. It is instructive to note that we have amongst us a Chosen Messenger of Allah in the personhood of Hadhrat Munir Ahmad Azim Sahib (atba) of Mauritius who has been raised for continuing with the mission of the Promised Massih (as). His mandate is crystal clear: ‘Arise and Create a New World’, or   “to demonstrate the transformation of a world” to borrow the phrase preferred in the original prophecy/Divine revelation.  In the last decade of his active Divine Mission, Hadhrat Khalifatullah has received many Divine spiritual titles in honour of his exalted spiritual station, including the title QAMARAN MUNIRA”.


It is instructive to note that Hadhrat Munir Ahmad Azim Sahib (atba) was vouchsafed extraordinary dreams filled with spiritually uplifting messages at the dawn of the present Divine Manifestation in Mauritius, in the year 2000. In the revealing testimonial of Mukarram Zafrullah Domun Sahib, one could read a succinct summary of the Dream concerning Qamaran Munira”:

“It was a long dream. Among other things he saw the late Hazrat Mirza Nasir Ahmad, Khalifatul Masih III who told him that since long in Rabwah they had kept his(Munir Ahmad Azim's) title as “Qamaram Muneera” meaning a light giving moon. Furthermore, he visited a place where the Holy prophet Mohammad (s.a.w) was delivering a speech in front of a very large assembly about the final victory of Islam. Hazrat Masih Maood (a.s) was sitting besides the Holy prophet  (s.a.w). Both of them recognized Munir Ahmad Azim's presence in the assembly and they sent a silver plate of dates and grapes for him after partaking of them .On coming back from that august place he met Hazrat Khalifatul Masih III again and the latter gave him some information about this humble self and also told him to confide in me all the messages that he would receive from the unseen. The latter also told him that the life of this world is only a pastime and the life of the hereafter is the real life. He told him to prepare for the life of the hereafter…”

Some aspects of the Prophecy regarding the appearance of the “Moon of Prophets” may have been fulfilled in the past, yet its completeness in its unique dimensions and in its entirety will take place only with time. It comes to fruition only with the appearance of a Divinely-raised Messenger of Allah who shall literally and figuratively resemble and reflect the original message of Islam as taught by the Holy Prophet of Islam (sa) along with the additional explanations offered by Hadhrat Ahmad (as). Those who care to peruse the speeches and writings of Hadhrat Munir Ahmad Azim Sahib (atba) in the last decade or so would be astonished to see the record. They would be wonderstruck by the remarkable continuity and similarity of those messages with the style and substance of the preaching of the Promised Massih (as). All Praise Belongs to the Almighty Alone!

'Surah Al- Fil': A Commentary

Holy Qur'an, Chapter 105: Al-Fil
1. In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful. 2. Have you not seen how your Lord dealt with the companions (i.e., owners) of the elephant? 3. Did He not make their treacherous plan go astray? 4. And He sent against them Birds in flocks, 5. Striking them with stones of hard-baked clay. 6. Then did He make them like an empty field of stalks and straw, (of which the crops) has been eaten up.
The Fate of Hubris: A Lesson from History
This Surah was revealed at Mecca in the early days of the prophethood of Hazrat Muhammad (pbuh). It speaks about the event that took place in the year of the birth of the Holy Prophet (saws), around the year 570 of the Christian calendar.Yemen at that time was under the control of the Abyssinians who were Christians and the latter had driven out the Jewish government that was in power at that time. Abraha Al-Ashram was the governor or Viceroy of Abyssinia. The thirst for power led him to self-proclaim himself king…

Significance of Surah Al Fatiha

... I have chosen to talk/explain today on a never-ending subject. I can say that if the ocean was ink and all trees in this world and the universe were pens and the sky and earth were papers, therefore all these would have come to an end but not the commentary of the Surah Al-Fatiha. This is because of the high importance of this chapter in the life of a believer, and this chapter is the first chapter of the Holy Quran. It is so important that one has to start with the Surah Al-Fatiha when he begins his prayer (Namaz/Salat). And to start supplications (duahs) to Allah, the Surah Al-Fatiha needs to be recited first. This is because of the nature of its greatness as a chapter and duah. In whatever situation a person may be, be it a difficulty, an illness or a state of suffering or any other problems he finds himself in, therefore he needs to recite the Surah Al-Fatiha.
By the grace of Allah, today 22nd August 2014, I have thought about explaining a bit again on this very important chap…

Again, You will soon know! 6. No! If you only knew with knowledge of certainty... 7. You will certainly see the Furnace. 8. Then you will certainly see it, with the eye of certainty. 9.

Competing for More
This chapter, Surah At-Takaathur (Ch.102) - Cupidity (i.e., the desire to have more and more) contains a warning to those who wish to possess everything, those who like to accumulate wealth.
Verse 2:‘Alhaakumut-Takaathuur - The race for (an increase in) wealth distracts you;
This fanaticism to acquire wealth and to increase one's fortune, position, the number of one's adherents, disciples or supporters, mass production or organization, affects not only one person but Societies and Nations.
