An Encounter with the Mullahs in Triolet
On Thursday 20 February 2014, I was in the North of Mauritius in one of its biggest villages called Triolet. On the way I met two Mullahs coming from Bangladesh. They presented themselves to me after greeting Salaam, and with very good and sweet words they invited me in the mosque at about 10:00a.m. I met many other Muslims coming from Bangalore and India. They asked me my name and before I have finished giving my full name, when I reached: Munir Ahmad, one of the Mullahs told me that his Burzuq’s name is Munir Ahmed, but then when I gave completed my full name: Munir Ahmad Azim, all of them looked at me with big surprised eyes and they suddenly turned aggressive.
Gone were the good and sweet words! Their tone changed and they immediately asked me: “You have proclaimed that you are the Mohyuddin, Khalifatullah etc.”
Without any hesitation and fear to creatures, although they were in great numbers in the mosques, I replied them in the affirmative.
They then asked me a series of questions pertaining to the titles I have received from Allah, wanting to know who told me that I was the Khalifatullah, Mohyuddin etc. I told them that it is my Creator, my Rab, in whose hands my life, health, food, dignity and honour are found. They did not believe me and called me liar and thus started a debate on the finality of prophethood in which they believe.
Holy Qur’an and the Sunnah as Final Guidance
Among other questions concerning the Mahdi and Messiah to come, they put to me put a question to me regarding a Hadith, “I have left for you the Book of Allah and the Sunnah, if you hold fast to it you will never go astray.”
