A Dawa Mission in Dubai and Abu Dhabi

As part of his recent transnational Dawa Mission, the Khalifatullah Hadhrat Munir Ahmad Azim Sahib (atba) of Mauritius journeyed across the Indian Ocean to the island-states of Sri Lanka and Maldives in South Asia, and also to the coastal state of United Arab Emirates (UAE) in the Persian Gulf, in April-May 2014. As we have already documented Hadhrat Sahib’s visit to Sri Lanka and also the historic Friday Sermon in the Maldives delivered during this period, the present report focuses on the visit to Dubai and Abu Dhabi.  (To read the previous articles in the series, click here: 12).

After setting his feet on the UAE lands, Hadhrat Sahib (atba) started the Dawa mission with the immigrant workers in the country- people of the Pakistani and Indian origin- Kerala, Kashmir, Peshawar and also of Bangladesh origin and the other parts of the world are employed in large numbers in the city-states of UAE.

The most fantastic events which happened in both the Arab countries-Dubai and Abu Dhabi- are that the Arabs listened with great attention to the message of the advent of a Khalifatullah in this era, someone who has come from Allah to revive Islam in its authenticity, to continue the great mission of our beloved prophet Muhammad (sa). 

On the other hand, it was mostly the Pakistani people who objected largely to the message of the coming a Messenger/Reviver of Faith after the Holy Prophet Muhammad (sa). They made lots of objection and were aggressive towards Huzur (atba) and the formation of Jamaat Ul Sahih Al Islam. They even dared to say in their arrogance: It is us Pakistanis who are most powerful here in the UAE. We are 80% here whereas there are only 20% Arabs!”

Unlike the Pakistanis, the Arab people were very helpful and indicated the Khalifatullah on how to get the Jamaat Ul Sahih Al Islam registered in Dubai, Abu Dhabi and the other states of the UAE. Tabligh/Dawa to the Arab people were very pleasant. Huzur (atba) always thought that it would be very difficult to broach the subject of coming of reformers within the fold of Islam, and thus he was pleasantly surprised to have met with such Arabs who were good-natured and open to the message. Huzur (atba) explained later on how to approach them, how to talk to them and give the message of Allah. If the way of approach is positive, all things will go positively, Alhamdulillah.

Many Arabs embraced the message and adhered themselves to Sahih Al Islam. May Allah grant to be firm in the Jamaat Ul Sahih Al Islam, wisdom and knowledge to continue the great mission of our prophet Hazrat Muhammad (sa).

They are much better than the Pakistani people (one has met with). (Some of the) Pakistani people, wherever they are in the world, take their country and countries of residence as if they possess such places, even more than the citizens of those countries. By the grace of Allah, the Jamaat Ul Sahih Al Islam has been officially registered in both Dubai and Abu Dhabi, two main cities of the UAE. Again, “Laa Ghaliba Illallah. Allah had promised to His Chosen Khalifa success and victory in establishing the true Islam in all corners of the world.   (For the video link to the Dawah mission to UAE, click here).                                       

From Hazrat Adam’s time till the Day of Judgement, Allah will always send His chosen ones to bring unity and spread the unicity of Allah, especially when people have entered complete spiritual darkness. They are completely deviated and more attracted to luxurious life and disgustful business. Hence, as in all times Allah manifested His divine signs and miracles to prove the truth of His messengers. Hence many manifestations of Allah were clear and witnessed by the people of the four countries which Huzur (atba) visited recently. 

Some Signs and Manifestations of the Divine during the Mission

1. Rainfall:

(a) Colombo (Sri Lanka) faced a severe drought during these last six months. 

The day Hazrat Khalifatullah Munir A. Azim (atba) landed there, rain poured down and showered the country with much awaited water. The people of Colombo themselves witnessed such a miracle, and the chauffeur (a pleasant good-natured Buddhist) of Huzur (atba) even said while he was leaving the country: “When you came, you brought rain with you, and when you are going, you are taking rain with you! The gentleman witnessed many a sign while he was with Huzur (atba) on his visit. After talking lengthily with Huzur (atba), he was finally convinced on the truthfulness of Islam and accepted to study Islam further under the care of the Jamaat Ul Sahih Al Islam. And verily, the day Huzur (atba) left Colombo, rain stopped.

(b) On his visit to the Maldives, a Sri Lankan working on one of the islands recognized that after a special person has set his feet on the land of Sri Lanka rain started pouring down and everywhere had become green again. Alhamdulillah more rain poured down when Huzur (atba) signed the official documents of registration because in the morning it was sunny, hot and dry.

2. Cool Air in Hot Weather:

(a) Maldives: A historical Jummah in the Maldives under a tree just like in the time of our beloved prophet Hazrat Muhammad (pbuh). At the time of Jummah prayers a cool wind welcomed the first people who had come to listen to the Khalifatullah with their praying mat/Muswallah. That day was a very hot day, hardly any fresh air around the island.

(b) Registration of Jamaat (Maldives): On the day of registration of the Jamaat Ul Sahih Al Islam in Maldives, the bus made three rounds of the island, and Huzur (atba) was tensed lest he is late for the registration of the Jamaat.

After a while, Allah sent this message to His beloved Khalifatullah: Not to show any anger or frustration because if ever he had set his feet at the first round itself, then the Jamaat would have not been registered as the officer in charge there is very strict and would have refused the registration of another Jamaat other than Sunnati Jamaat. This is because he is a diehard (Kattar) Sunnati Jamaat Muslim, and according to him only Sunnati Jamaat should rule Maldives Island.

Hence when he arrived at the registration office, that particular officer (as revealed by Allah) already left for lunch and Allah replaced him by another good-natured Officer who helped Huzur (atba) a lot in filling all the forms of rules and regulations, and without losing time the Head put his seal for the official registration.

3. Sign in Return Transport (Maldives):

After a short visit on an island, Huzur (atba) and his delegation wanted to visit another island at around 15.30pm. Tickets were bought without asking the time of return. En route to the island (half way), a 2hr trip by ferry, after enquiring about time of return, they get to learn that there is no return transport back to the island where they were residing. The next ferry would be on the next day at around 07.30. They had nothing with them, not even enough money to pay for a hotel to stay there.

Hazrat Khalifatullah Munir A. Azim (atba) prayed a lot. And Alhamdulillah, a miracle happened as thus: It never happened before that delivery of goods for local markets in this island is delivered on that day, even late in the evening. Allah opened their way and solved their problems on the spot when such a ferry came and thus Huzur (atba) and delegation got transport back to the main island, so as to get another ferry to go back to their place of stay.

While on the island where they had gone (and where there were usually no transport back), Huzur (atba) made a special program in the mosque with the collaboration of the Imam of the Island and made short speeches preaching “Laa Ilaaha Illlallah” in its true sense and Hazrat Khalifatullah (atba) proclaimed himself as the Messiah and Reviver of Faith of this era; that he is the Jesus who is long-awaited by the Muslims. Around 18.00 hrs, after the ferry has already disembarked its goods, Huzur (atba) and delegation got their return transport. Alhamdulillah.

4. Another manifestation happened in Colombo; these future young Hafiz-e-Qur'an asked for special duahs from our Huzur (atba). Allah even manifested the light of a special being in their eyes, Mash-Allah.

5. In both Dubai & Abu Dhabi people spread the false news that the Arab people are very strict and harsh. But to Huzur’s astonishment, Allah opened his way very easily having the Arabs at the head of the registration instead of the Pakistani “majorities”! They were charming and accepted to register the Jamaat officially and even proposed to open an Islamic school for the Jamaat in their states. Insha-Allah. We pray and follow only the instructions of Allah on how to do the work. Alhamdulillah.

6. Another astonishing event happened on their arrival at SSR International Airport. All passengers, around 300, took the escalators towards immigration, quite a long way. But Allah (swt) took great security measures for His Khalifatullah (atba). Two men made Huzur (atba) and delegation only (not the other passengers) enter the lift which was reserved for the VIPs.

We praise and thank Allah as He is Al-Raqeeb for His truthful servants.
