Ahmadi Mosques under Attack

HATE CRIME AGAINST ISLAM
We all know what happened on 13 November 2015 in Paris (France) after extremists opened fire on people, out of whom 129 died and more than 350 injured. After that incident, there have been other attacks and last month itself in the USA, some hours after the Paris Attacks, some people opened fire on an Ahmadi Mosque in Meriden, Connecticut, the “Baitul Aman”. By the grace of Allah, there were no victims. But these attacks on mosques, be it those of Ahmadiyya or other mosques and Islamic centres, be it in America or elsewhere in the world, are becoming all the more frequent, especially because of the vendetta/ revenge which people are extracting against Islam. According to them, it is Islam and its teachings which are to be blamed!
Worst, nowadays in America there are some stupid people who are standing as presidential candidates of the USA, for example, Donald Trump, a Republican who has seized the opportunity of the Paris Attacks to make his political campaign a…

'The Idiot Box is Truly Harmful'

TV’S HARMFUL EFFECTS
By the grace of Allah, Allah (swt) in His infinite wisdom and grace has given me again the Tawfiq to continue my sermon today on the subject of: “The Harmful Effects of Television”.
Indeed the time that you lose watching TV is a time which you cannot gain back again, and verily you are in no position to know the exact remaining days which you have before you, before you leave this world. Therefore, maximize what time remains for you in the worship of Allah(Ibaadat), and the seeking of His forgiveness and mercy (Istigfaar). Spend all your time in the path of Allah by doing the works of religion and spend your money also for the propagation of the unity of Allah. Do not spend your money in useless preoccupations wherein there is no divine reward or pleasure.
Islam teaches us that despite all that which we possess (on earth), we verily have no right to use it in the way we want for all these things verily belong to Allah alone: our body, our strength, our time, our mone…

TV: Impact on Islamic Life

TV’S HARMFUL EFFECTS
Today, by the grace of Allah, Allah has given me the Tawfiq to continue the second part of my Khutba Jummah on The Harmful Effects of Television’.
Through TV, the Islamic dress code is disappearing, to such a point that there are some who consider the Islamic clothing as uncivilised dress code and only good for ancient times!
Islam has put great restriction concerning sexuality so that the social life of our community remains clean and far away from prostitution, homosexuality and other social maladies. As for TV, it not only removes that restriction through the means of its dirty films but it also incites young people to satisfy their carnal desires (sexual needs/ passions) in an immoral and illicit (Haram) way.
Islam is a religion which teaches Muslims men as well as women to cultivate shame (Haya) in them because shame is a quality which helps cultivate mutual respect. The Holy Prophet (pbuh) has even made us know that Allah (swt) has joined shame (Haya) together …

Shun Arrogance and Cheap Victories

OBEDIENCE TO ALLAH AND TO HIS MESSAGE 
Hazrat Muhyi-ud-Din Al- Khalifatullah Munir Ahmad Azim Saheb (atba) opened his Friday Sermon stressing on Obedience to Allah and His Khalifatullah, for therein is true salvation for a true believer. A true believer never seeks to hurt the feelings of the Messenger of Allah, Khalifatullah. The one who truly loves Allah and His Khalifatullah will always show obedience to Allah and His Khalifatullah.
During the course of his explanations which Huzur (atba) explained to be divinely inspired – for he relates that ever since the beginning of the Divine Manifestation, before doing any Jummah Khutba (or discourse) he seeks divine succour and guidance on which topic/ subject to bring before the Jamaat and the world at large – and Alhamdulillah, he also received on the spot (11 December 2015) the following revelation (in English):“These are the words coming from Allah. These are not the words of Munir Ahmad Azim.”

Watching Too Much TV

TV’S HARMFUL EFFECTS
Today the subject of my sermon shall be on the harmful effects of television. TV in itself is a favour for us from Allah (swt). You shall notice that in all good favours that Allah gives man, little by little Satan makes his way in them, leaving his mark, thus spoiling the favours which Allah have enabled us to have, especially in this past era and the actual era in which we are living with the introduction of television. There are programmes on TV which are essential for viewers, to learn from the given information, such as documentaries, news, educative programmes and others.
Now attraction to all the good effects of TV has disappeared, especially among the youths. Are you people now pondering over the arrays of TV Channels which are available today? I recall the past when there was only one television channel in Mauritius and there were interesting programmes, educative ones (such as documentaries etc.) which started around 3.00 pm and ended at 10.00 pm. Even the…

Youth 'Fashion' & Muslim Parents

THE MUSLIM YOUTHS ARE GOING ASTRAY
Many of our elders these days have approached me to share their testimonials about our male and female Muslim youths.Despite the hard trials, boycott and persecution upon me and the members of the Jamaat Ul Sahih Al Islam, but as the Caliph of Allah, I do not have the right to remain passive and fear them, and thereby letting our youths (boys and girls) go astray. 
By the grace of Allah, come what may, I do not have fear of creatures in me, and Allah (swt) has sent me to accomplish a mission and I shall do it despite the palavers and persecutions of the so-called great defenders of Islam. When they have relinquished, abandoned the works which they were supposed to do, Allah has raised His Caliph (Khalifatullah) with a Jamaat to do the noble work which our beloved prophet (pbuh) did. Try as you may, but you shall not be able to extinguish the light of Allah, and let me tell you that Allah (swt) shall continue to perfect His light. Allah (swt) does not n…

Reclaiming Islam's Pristine Essence

By the grace of Allah, nowadays people in the four corners of the world are lending positive ears, that is, listening carefully and acknowledging the message of the Jamaat Ul Sahih Al Islam.
Allah (swt) chose us to transmit the divine message, the same message which was given to Hazrat Muhammad (pbuh). As our noble master and prophet, Hazrat Muhammad (pbuh) is no more today, but nevertheless Allah (swt) has provided ways and means for His message to be transmitted in our present time in a way to connect both eras.
Who are those people who are capable of spreading this message?
It is verily those who possess the characteristics of the founder of Islam and the Seal of all Prophets (pbuh) who are the one who shall be able to carry on this message with the express commandment of Allah and the blessings of the Ruh-il-Quddus. In other words, they have to possess the same behaviours and willingness as those of Hazrat Muhammad (pbuh) to execute that great divine plan. These characteristics have…

Riches and Degradation among Ahmadis

(I)n his Friday Sermon of 29 May 2015, Mirza Masroor Ahmad Sahib stated that every day the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community is witnessing many signs and favours and he cited with arrogance that in Germany, the Lajna and Ansar had recently bought a five-storey building for € 1.7 million, and affirms that this was a divine support in favour of (man-elected) Khilafat.  (Inset on the left: a Photo from the inauguration ceremony of the headquarters building). 
If money and material progress is really divine support in favour of Ahmadiyya man-electedKhilafat, then the Pope and the Christian World as well as the other ancient religions, including the other non-Ahmadi Muslims shall be doubly and even trebly jubilant in stating that it is them who have divine support because they are far more advanced in both number and wealth than the Ahmadiyya Community worldwide. According to them, despite the man-made idols which they (the other religions) cherish, and the closing of the door of prophethood (for …

Khalifatul Massih V as "Ummati Nabi" ?

The Promised Messiah (as) received the status of Ummati Nabi(subordinate prophet) and of Khatam-ul-Khulafa(Seal of the Caliphs). It’s true that it is only in the Jamaat of Hazrat Massih Ma’ud (as) that Allah (swt) will raise subordinate (Ummati) prophets. How will we know how Allah (swt) shall choose this kind of subordinate prophet, His prophet?
It is of course, throughDIVINE REVELATION and not through the tongues of man (i.e. elected by man) that this humble servant of Allah shall have to proclaim himself officially, affirming that Allah alone has raised him as Ummati Nabiand after his death, well-guided Khulafashall take over his mission. But as it is Sunnat Allah (the way of Allah), whenever the situation deteriorates and the divine teachings are trampled to dust, and dynasties take over, definitely Allah will raise His very own Khalifa (without the help and election of any creature) in the same Jamaat of Hazrat Massih Ma’ud (as) and in the Ummah of Hazrat Muhammad (pbuh) as His pr…

The Theology of Ahmadiyya ‘Khilafat’

Today, the "mainstream" Nizam-e-Jamaat-e-Ahmadiyya is guilty of gross exaggeration of their assembly-selected leadership known as the office of "Khalifatul Massih".The 'deification' of 'Khilafat' in general and that of the reigning 'Khalifa' of the Jamaat-e-Ahmadiyya is of stunning proportions.So much so that anyone who is familiar with the community would be astonished with the perceptional transformation on spiritual questions achieved by the 'Ahmadi' leaders and scholars for themselves. 
The theological engineering done by Ahmadi Ulema to exaggerate the importance of the office of "Khalifatul Massih" is apparent for discerning observers. Consider the Arabic term“Khalifa”.Itis generally translated as ‘vicegerent’ or ‘deputy’. The basic meaning of 'khalifa' is ‘successor’. In the Holy Qur’an, one can see several verses that speak about generations and individuals who are successors to each other. For instance: [6:16…

The Fallacies of Maulvi Abdul Ghany

The leaders and scholars of the Nizam(e-Jamaat-e-Ahmadiyya) are today guilty of giving credence to self-serving, dynasty-perpetuating, 'doctrinal spin' on important questions of theological matters that impinge on the very foundations of true Islam. The teachings of Promised Massih Hadhrat Ahmad (as) highlighted the significance of Divine guidance as true guidance and today those who claim his legacy stand to deny the same 'by other means'. For clinging to their earthly 'positions', these leaders and scholars trample upon perennial Qur'anic teachings and would have common folks to believe that Allah (swt) stopped the enduring practice of raising His Elects in support of Tawhid. They would prefer everyone to consider that a man-elected-man is 'superior' to a Divine Elect, raised by Allah (swt) Himself in this era!
In a recently published book entitled "Towards the Understanding of Prophethood and the Fallacy of the Hypocrites"Imam Muhyi-ud…

Reply to Abdul Ghany Jahangeer Khan

Earlier this month, the Jamaat Ul Sahih Al Islam International published a new Book written by the Khalifatullah, Hadhrat Imam Muhyi-ud-Din Munir Ahmad Azim  Saheb (atba) of Mauritius. This tract is entitled, Towards the Understanding of Prophethood & the Fallacy of the Hypocrites. It can be read here

This book is an important contribution to the growing literature of the Jamaat, explaining the unthinking premises of the currently held notions of basic Ahmadi 'beliefs' on the 'continuity' of Khilafat in the Jamaat-e-Ahmadiyya through mundane elections till the end of times. 
Most Ahmadis today follow a narrow assumption of prophethood and spiritual leadership in the Muslim Ummah among the 'Aakharreen'. Devout Ahmadis are often misguided by their leaders and scholars into muddled thinking: that Allah (swt) can raise no one in this era with Divine revelations, to revitalize the constitutional architecture and thereby correct the administrative edifice of the …

Khalifatullah: Guardian of the Faith

Each time Allah (swt) sends His Caliph (Khalifatullah) on earth, people refuse to accept him; they not only refuse to accept him but they also make all sorts of evil plans to stop him from spreading the message of His Creator. In the message he gives there is protection for humanity, to safeguard the true faith and guide them towards (the worship of) only the Unique God. He also shows them the path which shall lead them to the Unique God. Unfortunately, through their arrogance and ignorance, they persist in worshipping the idol/idols of their own making.
A Khalifatullah is a guardian of the Tawhid (unicity of Allah) in a particular/special way. Allah (swt) has fulfilled His promise after Nabi Kareem (pbuh) where there were theKhulafa-e-Rashideen and after the Promised Messiah (as), there were the Khulafa-e-Massih; but like Allah (swt) has promised in the Holy Quran, in Surah An-Nur, Chapter 24, Verset 56, those who have faith and do good deeds as per the commandments of Allah, and who …

Politics of 'Jihad' and 'Victimhood' in Paris

The killings in Paris
Before coming on the subject matter of my sermon today, I shall talk a little on what has transpired in France, Paris last Friday, 13 November 2015. Friday the 13th is believed by many, including the French people as a very inauspicious day. This superstition was reinforced with the killings which happened there (last Friday) and which made lots of victims. It was really a sad event, especially for the victims of these attacks. 
But unfortunately, I must stress also the fact that the Government of France, with all their arrogance won’t budge from their stand, especially concerning the giving of armaments to the people of Syria with the intention of capsizing the regime of Bashar Al-Assad, and also to reinforce their plans for the killings of the Muslims among themselves, thus weakening Islam further.
The Politics of 'Jihad'
It is true also that the type (and execution) of the Jihad which the so-called Muslims are putting into practice is completely unislamic.…

Islamic Morals for a Joyous Life

By the grace of Allah I continue today on the subject of my previous sermons, that is to say, the “Khidmat-e-Khalq” (Service to Humanity)and this sermon is specifically the continuation of the last Friday Sermon where I spoke on hospitality (to the guests, to the poor, to everyone).
In a very nice anecdote and Hadith, Hazrat Muhammad (pbuh) refers to hospitality in a wonderful way. Once a Sahabi (companion of the Messenger of Allah) appeared before Hazrat Muhammad (pbuh) in the morning, and then the Holy Prophet (pbuh) told him:The action you did last night pleased Allah very much (and this even made Allah laugh).”
And it was on this occasion that Allah revealed the following verse:
“They prefer others to their own selves, in spite of the fact that they are themselves in pressing need.” (Al-Hashr 59: 10)
In fact, this is the same matter of the verses of the Quran which I mentioned in the previous Friday Sermons: Al-Insaan, Chapter 76, Verses 9-10.It is about the fact that despite the dif…

Jamaat-e-Ahmadiyya at the Cross-roads of Time
