The System of Khilafat in Islam
Allah has promised to those among you who believe and do good works that He will, surely, make them SUCCESSORS in the earth, as He made Successors from among those who were before them; and that He will, surely establish for them their religion which He has chosen for them; and exchange security and peace after their fear; They will worship Me, and they will not associate anything with Me. Then whoso disbelieves after that, they will be the rebellious.
Hazrat Huzaifa (r.a) reported that Hazrat Muhammad (s.a.w) said that prophethood will continue to stay among you for as long as Allah wishes and whenever there is a need to remove these favours, then Khilafat based on the system after prophethood will be established. Then Hazrat Muhammad (s.a.w) remained silent for a while.
The lapse of time of his quietness, Hazrat Muhammad (s.a.w) was receiving some messages. That silence increased the inquisitiveness of the sahabas. That silence announced a message coming from Allah that He will send a Khalifa who will stand as a guardian and will guide people to the right path. But when this will continue, people will start having fear for the Khulafa, instead of Allah (swt). And when this fear takes place in the heart, they will start having fear of man and they will invite others towards him, instead of ALLAH. From the verse “Khalifa” is based from prophethood system. Allah raised this person with the status of prophethood where revelation descends upon him.
Khulafa-ur-Rashidun and the Mujaddidin
We all understand that after the deaths of the four Khulafa of Islam, were there not Khulafa who guided their communities on the right path? This procedure had continued till Allah sent Mujaddidin and even nowadays do you think that only the Ahmadiyya Association has a Khalifa, other Muslims sects do not have Khulafa (for their respective sects)? So to understand this. (Khilafat based on the system after prophethood), when this system is being corrupted and misguided, by the grace and mercy of Allah, He raises a Khalifa on the prophethood system. The “Khalifatullah” as he is chosen by Allah. Allah raises him, and he is not elected by man. Then Allah takes controls over him completely.
This verse of the Qur'an is very clear and there is no controversy into it; Allah makes a promise from this verse that those who do good actions, what are these good actions? Those who will worship Allah only and will never associate anybody to Him, that is, those who will have only the fear of Allah in their heart. Allah will give these people successors in this world. Allah will raise a Khalifa among them as a reward of these good actions and He will bestow peace and security after their fear.
Prophecy on Spiritual Renewal
Hazrat Abu Huraira (r.a) reported that they were with Hazrat Muhammad (s.a.w) when the Surah Jumu’ah was being revealed and when this verse descended: “Wa aakhiriinaa minhoum lamma yalhakoubihim”, a sahaba asked Hazrat Muhammad (s.a.w), ‘who are these peoples whom you have not yet met?’
The prophet did not answer. The sahaba asked the same question twice or thrice. The reporter said that Hazrat Salman Farsi was sitting by the side of Hazrat Muhammad (s.a.w) among us. So the prophet of Allah (s.a.w) placed his hand on Salman’s shoulder (Salman was of Persian Origin) and said that if Imaan (faith) goes far away till its reaches Surrayya, that is the furthest star, a person of his descendant will bring back faith on earth.
All of us do agree with this Hadith, that it refers to Hazrat Massih Maoud (a.s). No doubt in it. This question was being asked twice or thrice from this Hadith because Allah made His Rassool understand that when Imaan would go high up the furthest star, Surrayya, someone of Persian descendants of Salman Farsi (r.a) would bring faith back on earth. In other Hadiths, it is mentioned more than one person from his descendants. So, we understand fully that Hazrat Massih Maoud (a.s) was that chosen one to bring back faith on earth. Then, when faith would go back to Surrayya again, people of his Jamaat will bring back faith to others. This Khalifa cannot appear from outside the Jamaat Ahmadiyya, the Jamaat of Hazrat Massih Maoud (a.s)
Renewal of Faith is Through Divine Revelations
Now, how can Imaan which has gone till the furthest star, Surrayya, be brought back on earth? How Hazrat Massih Maoud (a.s) brought back that Imaan?
Through revelations, – Divine Revelations. Allah spoke to him and guided him how to bring faith into the heart of people. He had to exile himself completely from this materialist world to seek help from Allah. Surely, Allah has guided him through revelations how to achieve this task. Imaan did not reach the earth like this. Hazrat Massih Maoud (a.s) had to suffer a lot, in this field of his bad health and persecutions. Despite all his trials and hardships Allah supported him and helped him through revelations. He wrote more than 80 books. Do you think that was an easy task to re-establish Imaan in the heart of people towards the Unicity of Allah?
When he founded the Jamaat Ahmadiyya, only an Ana (Paisa) was left in the fund of the community. He was not worried about that “Ana”, but he was more worried about the millions of rupees which will come, Insha’Allah, in the fund of the Jamaat, but unfortunately, the money will be lavishly spent. This proved that at that time he knew that in the future Imaan will disappear from the heart of the Ahmadis. Imaan will go back to Surrayya. He came as a judge to establish justice and to bring people to peace and reconciliation.
Adam, the First Khalifatullah
Somebody who is raised by Allah is exactly like an Adam, the first Khalifa and the first Khalifatullah – A Khalifa from Allah for the believers. Was Hazrat Adam a Khalifa elected by man? When Allah asked the angels to prostrate in front of Adam, they told Allah:
“Wilt Thou place therein such as will cause disorder in it, and shed blood? – and we glorify Thee with Thy praise and extol Thy holiness.”
Allah answered, “I know what you know not”.
Through this verse we understand that when ever Allah will send His Khalifatullah on earth, people will create much disorder. After the Khalifatullah, a system of Successors will take place. So, the angels did not object to God’s purpose or claimed superiority over Adam, the Khalifatullah, but there will be people on earth who will create disorder and shed blood. So the angels had already known the darker side of human beings but Allah know that His Khalifatullah is being endowed with such degree of morality and spirituality as to reflect the character of divine attributes.
So the angels told Allah: “O our Lord, You are a Holy Being; We glorify You and Praises You". But verily Allah had already decreed to raise His Khalifa, and He created him, and the angels had to submit to His Khalifa (Hazrat Adam) whose Khilafat was based on the System of Prophethood (Nabuwwat).
Opposition to Divine Revelations
Many people can ask me questions that: ‘the Khalifa and the great scholars of the Ahmadiyya Association do not agree with you.’ But my answer to them is ‘in spite of the degree of their greatness, but they cannot be greater than Allah. They cannot be closer to Him and glorify Allah more than the angels do. Angels showed their obedience, and submitted to the will of God.’
This verse mentions also “disorders on earth”. Whenever a prophet proclaims himself to be a recipient of divine revelations, normally they will be upset by this breaking news because they know that they are having a luxurious life, sins, comfort, vices in which they find much pleasure and also they deviated from truth, from the true teachings of Islam. They are taking themselves to be God on earth. So when the prophet of Allah starts to unveil their secrets, of course, when Allah informs him, they are not happy, because people who used to lick their boots will definitely leave them to attach themselves to the Khalifatullah. That’s the main reason they have to oppose him and create disorder.
Disorders (fitna) never come from the side of the prophet. No! On the contrary prophets are on the defensive side always and the blood that is shed is the blood of the prophet and the true believers caused by the enemies as they will never be allowed to be deviated. They will prefer to be tortured rather than renouncing their faith in Allah and His Prophet.
In Surah Noor, in the verse that I have presented to you, Allah says that after the period of fear He grants security and peace. Through this verse Allah shows a sign to recognise His Messenger. The sign is to warn people, over forgotten teachings, to announce to the believers the glad tidings of the great bounty from Allah. And to guide them in the right track so as the light of Allah will reflect from their heart. In fact, a prophet acquires power and power of tongue from Allah to establish the message of Allah. Nothing can happen without the help of Allah.
Allah transforms these dangers and difficulties to peace and security. Think well over it. When Hazrat Muhammad (s.a.w) came to propagate the message of truth, he stood alone, without a dirham and on the other side the Arabs were not interested and opposed him fiercely but he stood for the cause of Allah. His enemies caused him a lot of difficulties and pain and even they planned to kill him. What did they not plot against him, but who were the best losers? He was ashamedly humiliated but finally he came out victorious and took hold of the whole country where the latter chased him and who were far away from the Unicity of Allah. Hazrat Muhammad (s.a.w) spread the message of the Tawheed which finally was accepted and established peace and fear of Allah in their heart.
Significance of Bai'at to a Khalifatullah
When you place your hand on the hand of the Khalifa raised by Allah (Khalifatullah), this means that you are protected and secured, despite your weaknesses. This is a miracle from Allah. He comes to help those who have placed their hands firmly in the hands of His Khalifatullah. Allah sends His Spiritual Leader, the Khalifatullah, when fear of people has taken place and love of Allah has disappeared from the heart of people, when ignorance has spread in all corners, when people has turned towards luxuries and comfort of this world, when people are strayed away from religion and when they become selfish and egoist. Victory, security, protection, and peace lie in the hands of the Khalifatullah as only Allah is responsible to direct him and to instruct him. Truth triumphs over falsehood.
It’s true that when a Khalifatullah makes his apparition, very few people come to him and support him, but they also face that problem of adaptation because they also were used to lead a luxurious and comfortable life as the others but the difference is that they struggle a lot to maintain a pious life.
The Khalifatullah comes with the Rouhil Qoudouss.
It is here at this point where lies the difference between a Khalifa elected by Allah and a Khalifa elected by man because the former’s message and advice will be very different from the latter’s. He comes with a revolution, to create a new world. But people are used to the ancient world. They find it difficult to adopt themselves to him and they even think that he is practicing strange, queer and odd methods to change the mind and hearts of people. They forget that a prophet or a messenger who come in each era, his message is divinely applied. But people are much confused and have great difficulties to understand his move. Great scholars and great “mullahs” in religion fail in this situation and they lose their Imaan – they close the doors of revelation and prophethood.
So if you are that lucky person to recognise him, someone who has come from Allah and multiples of signs have been manifested to prove his veracity, you should not be discourage, nor perturb, nor upset or affected. You have just to obey him if you really believe that he received instructions through the Rouhil Qoudouss. You should not get disturbed, just obey. If ever you think he is inducing people into error Allah will remove all these favours from him and he has to account for that and his punishment will be doubled or trebled than an ordinary man.
This is the main difference between a Khalifatullah and other types of Khulafa. He will change the state of fright into that of peace. People will not be able to cope with the way he works as he goes only according to instructions of Allah. These types of people then prefer to leave the Khalifatullah, they turn into hypocrites and they become “Murtad” (atheists).
Restoring Faith is a Heavy Task
When Hazrat Muhammad (s.a.w) passed away, Muslims were faced with all sorts of difficulties, then some of them became hypocrites, and finally they became “Murtad”. Muslims created much disorder among themselves; each tribe wanted a Khalifa from their respective tribes. The same happened in the time of Hazrat Abu Bakr Siddique, the first Khalifa after the demise of Hazrat Muhammad (s.a.w). He was much grieved and pained when Islam fell into such situation. He lamented in front of His Creator and supplicated Him through duahs. He cried so much that tears were running like torrential rainfall from his eyes. He prayed a lot for the welfare of the Muslims. Hazrat Aisha Siddiqua (r.a) said that when her father took the reign of Khilafat in his hands, when Allah confided him this responsibility of Khilafat, every tribe started revolution against him. She said that if ever these problems fall on a mountain, it would be torn into pieces. But only Allah was by his side, Allah was his sole protector against difficulties. This fear and fright was transformed into peace and security and the religion of Allah was re-established firmly.
So, we cannot say that there will be no decline in religion. All great religions did face the same problems in the past. So did Islam when especially it is Allah Himself who has established it, and where we are honoured with “the Seal of the Prophets” (s.a.w). Now what can we see? Muslims too have not been spared with this declination and moreover every Muslim (on their lips) is said to be found in the Ummat of Hazrat Muhammad (s.a.w).
Decline of spiritual values among the Ahmadis
Since the arrival of Hazrat Massih Maoud (a.s) till now, nearly 115 years elapsed, no one has succeeded to be united with the Ahmadiyya Jamaat. Yes, other Muslims did come to embrace Ahmadiyyat, individually or in families, but not as a whole community. Do we have at least a Muslim sect in the world who has left everything and come together in the Jamaat of Hazrat Massih Maoud (a.s)? Frankly speaking, I do not know or even heard if it ever happened. If ever you know, so do inform me please. I am making an appeal to the whole world.
So everything declines when reaching its climax. When the sun rises, then after some time it sets. Do not think that this means Qayamat, the Last day; but the greatest Qayamat is when a Chief of a Jamaat establishes injustice among the members. He will speak out arrogantly and show his superiority, his power of control, he will humiliate people and make them afraid of him and make them to suffer, threatening them of blowing them out of the Jamaat. This shows the declination of a Jamaat, the Qayamat. At this particular time, their true faces will be unveiled. They will torture the true believers.
Refer to the Holy Quran, where Allah ordained Hazrat Da’oud (a.s):
“O Da’oud! We have made thee a vicegerent in the earth; so judge between men with justice, and follow not vain desire, lest it should lead thee astray from the way of Allah. Surely, those, who go astray from the way of Allah, will have a secure punishment, because they forgot the Day of Reckoning.” (Surah Sàd Ch.38, V.27)
This means: Do not stain the mirror of your heart with rust, passions otherwise you will deprive yourself from receiving the light of guidance. Allah will never manifest Himself in this kind of heart.
When man reaches perfection, when his heart is free from stains of rust, from his Nafs-é-Amaarah (Soul Instigator of evil) and sacrifice of his passions and desires, then Allah chooses him and he is raised to a rank of Khalifatullah on this earth and Adam of that era.
Renewal of Faith is through Divine Light
The Khalifatullah is a secret lamp among men. He is capable of receiving the divine light as in his body there is a nest into which is embedded a glass. His heart represents the celestial brilliant body from which shines the light of intelligence, the amazing light of the oil of spirit in the glass of the heart. That oil is capable to illuminate the rays of intelligence – where the rays of the Light of Allah touch him – he receives knowledge (Ilm) beyond man’s comprehension.
Allah placed a secret lamp in the glass of his heart into which is found the wick of secret, of the mystery, ‘Al Kaafi’ which is the secret of the secrets. When Allah wants to establish His Khalifa on earth, He manifests Himself using the light of His Beauty and Majesty from the light of the secret lamp of man, which is brightened and illuminated with the light of intelligence which cannot reach man’s comprehension and which cannot accede to the knowledge of the Ultimate Reality – the light of Theophany (divine manifestation of light) becomes the light over the light of intelligence and God guides whomsoever He chooses towards this light – The wick of the secret lamp (Ch.24,V.56). Then the lamp brings light of Allah.
Then, this person becomes the Khalifatullah on earth. He manifests the light of Allah by His attributes through justice, virtues, mercy and kindness towards the deserving ones and he manifests the attributes of bravery, power, reprimand, anger, revenge to those worthy of it. This is what Allah has informed us on the rank of a prophet and his companions:
“Muhammad (s.a.w) is the messenger of Allah. And those who are with him are hard against the disbelievers but tender among themselves.” (Surah Fath V.30)
Promised Massih (as) on Spiritual Khulafa in Islam
Now I am going to illustrate some sayings of Hazrat Massih Maoud (a.s) about this subject, otherwise my sermon will be too lengthy.
In one of his writings, “Shahadat-ul-Quran” p.48-60, Hazrat Massih Maoud (a.s) said that “Qoudraté Saaniyah” is eternal till the Day of Judgement, which means that he is referring to the word “Qoudraté Saaniyah” which is applicable to Khalifa and according to Hazrat Massih Maoud (a.s) who is a Khilafat-é-Rassool which included the four Khoulfa-é-Rashideen. They were the successors after Hazrat Muhammad (s.a.w) and there were also the Mujaddidin. Islamic Khalifas, that is, the “Khoulfa-é-Rashideen” after Hazrat Muhammad (s.a.w) were very useful and needful to continue the great work of Hazrat Muhammad (s.a.w). Other Mujaddidin came also in each century for a follow up. All Muslims without exception believe that Mujaddidin will appear in every century till the Day of Judgement (Qayamat).
Nowhere in his books is written that Khilafaté Ahmadiyya will be eternal. He mentioned only two things which will be eternal: Qoudraté Saaniyah & Islamic Khilafat. He said that Qoudraté Saaniyah includes Khilafat but not “Khilafaté Ahmadiyya” precising that this Qoudrat has a similarity with Qoudrat found in Hazrat Abu Bakr Siddique (r.a) who was the first Islamic Khalifa. In other words Hazrat Massih Maoud (a.s) wanted to explain that Qoudraté Saaniyah is comparable to Islamic Khilafat.
He defined the Islamic Khilafat including the successors after prophets and Mujaddidin, that is, prophethood will continue in all time till the Day of Judgement to revive all the lost teachings brought by Hazrat Muhammad (s.a.w) from the Holy Quran. These teachings have been manifested by man. And also he stated that Mujaddidin will make their appearances from time to time whenever he is needed. You must not trample the teachings of Hazrat Massih Maoud (a.s) under your feet and just take advantage of only parts which suit you.
You satisfy yourself with a Khilafat-ul-Massih – that’s all. You must not think in that angle. Unveil your eyes, do not play the deaf. You have all become stone-hearted. Just Realise! If you are found in the Jamaat Ahmadiyya today, before the Khilafat-ul-Massih, there was Hazrat Massih Maoud (a.s) who was a Mujaddid as well as a prophet of God. Allah graced him with revelations and his venue was for all religions. The door of Khilafat-ul-Massih can be shut but never the door of Mujaddid or prophets.
Let me go back to the main subject of this sermon; the Khalifat-ul-Massih (Ahmadi Khilafat) is not eternal just like Hazrat Massih Maoud (a.s) said that the door of prophethood is never closed. Once there was a man who asked a question to Hazrat Massih Maoud (a.s) on the 24th September 1905 (refer to Malfoozat Vol.7 P.119). That person asked him whether a Mujaddid will come after him. So, Hazrat Massih Maoud (a.s) replied: “What is wrong in it, if a Mujaddid has to come after me? Hazrat Moosa’s apostolate was terminated with Messiah Issa’s apostolate whereas, the apostolate of Hazrat Muhammad (s.a.w) will continue till Judgement Day.”
So we understand that Allah will always raise His Mujaddid till the Day of Judgement. And it is true that we cannot deny that Allah will continue to speak and raise His Nabi/prophet or Mujaddid among the righteous and pious believers.
Do you think a Reformer or a Reviver of Faith will not make his appearance? Had Allah not stated from the Holy Quran that He does not punish people as long as He does not send a Warner among His people? He will continue to send His chosen ones, not man; especially when all teachings of Islam have been trampled under their dirty feet.
Do you think Allah will leave His teachings in this dust? Allah says in the Holy Quran Ch.2 Ruku 4 V.39:
“And if there comes to you guidance from ME, then whoso shall follow My Guidance, on them shall come no fear nor shall they grieve.”
In Shahadat-ul-Quran on p. 46, Hazrat Massih Maoud (a.s) said:
“In each century, the teachings in all aspects will be preserved; Mujaddidin will come with the power of Allah with intellectual faculties and qualities to reform those who have been completely deviated by Shaïtan. This brings man in compete darkness and follow the path of Shaïtan only.”
And I (the Khalifatullah of this Era) state also that when man cast aside spirituality and they cling themselves to the luxuries and businesses of this world and some are Muslims only by name, as a routine, so only Allah (swt) knows the secrets of all these hearts and He knows that a Khalifatullah is necessary in this century.
Another important point found in the Holy Quran is the letter RA in ALIF LAM RA – This letter refers to the “permanent institution of Mujaddidin”, the coming of Mujaddidin till Judgement Day.
All these are great miracles and victory which the true believers of Hazrat Muhammad (s.a.w) will have till the Day of Judgement. If I am not mistaken, I think it is written in the book of Hazrat Massih Maoud (a.s) in Roohani Khazain No.2 Vol.2 p.63 – May Allah guide me on this matter!
And Hazrat Massih Maoud (a.s) continued to write in the same book (if it is not exact, please do inform me), where he said: “We are used to wear clothes. After one week, they become dirty and need to be washed. With the passing of each century, should there not be a Mujaddid to come?” This means that Mujaddidin must come to revive and reform man throughout the whole world.
So the role of a Khalifatullah or a Mujaddid is the same. The same happen with our body which second after second becomes old and our health is affected. The same happen in religion, from one century to the next century, spirituality dies away, gets deteriorated. It is at this particular time that Allah sends His Vicegerent on earth. A Khalifatullah is here to revitalize the new generation by the laws of Allah (Sunnat Allah).
So, it is very important to have among us a prophet of Allah who has come to revive all the divine teachings which got lost through generations throughout centuries. Allah (swt) sends His vicegerent (Khalifatullah) on earth or a Mujaddid or a Messiah. Hazrat Massih Maoud (a.s) wrote in his book “Izala Auham”, p.197: “I declare myself as the Promised Messiah (a.s). I am not the only one proclaiming myself as such and neither am I the last Massih Maoud.” Then he continued: “According to me, it is possible that after this century, there will be 10,000 Promised Messiah who will come but in this (particular) century, I am the Promised Messiah (a.s)”.
Now after having understood the writings of the Promised Messiah (a.s), Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad, no one has the right to object to his belief concerning the apparition of a Mujaddid or Khalifatullah (or Messiah) which goes according to the teaching and perception of Islamic Khilafat.
But unfortunately, people of the Ahmadiyya Association are propagating blindly the misconception concerning the Khalifa and they even have the guts to say that “Khilafaté Ahmadiyya” is eternal and moreover they say that “Khilafat is our life!” but where have they kept their belief in Allah and His Rassool (s.a.w)? Where is the Tawheed, the credo of Islam “Laa Ilaaha Illallah Muhammadur Rassoollullah” gone?
What they are preaching are against the teachings of the Promised Messiah – like this saying: “words from the mouth can fly away but hand-writings do remain”. His writings are here. These Ahmadis are pretending to be the great defenders of Islam and Ahmadiyyat. They pretend to have got the exclusivity of the license to defend Islam, and not others. But what happened? They want to raise a creature of Allah, elected by a board of Amirs in the world. They are raising him much higher than Allah (swt), His Rassool Muhammad (saw), the Quran Shareef which descended upon our Beloved Prophet (s.a.w) and also the teachings of Hazrat Massih Maoud (a.s).
And you, what are you doing?
You have all put aside, and burned to ashes these teachings, so as to raise very high a mere creature, elected by man. Everywhere in all houses, his photographs are placed in every corner and they voice out “Khilafat is our life”. They have completely forgotten that it is Allah who graced them with life. You all have put aside Allah and mind you this universe cannot exist without the favours and will of Allah. He created all the basic necessities of life long before your birth without any of your own efforts and your life lies in His Hands. He has the control of the entire universe. Even your Khalifa’s life lies in the Hands of Allah. So don’t you see that it is SHIRK which has been embedded carelessly deeply into your heart? And now, by this time, don’t you think that Allah (swt) should manifest His Power and control to raise His Khalifa like in Ch.2 V.31:
“Wa iza qaala Rabbuka lil-Malaa-ikati ‘Inni jaa-iluu fil arzi Khalifah”. Allah explain that:
“And when thy Lord said to the angels, ‘I am about to place a vicegerent in the earth”.
Allah said to the angels: ‘Inni jaa-iluu fil arzi Khalifah’. When Allah sends His Khalifa taking the name of Allah the latter says that Allah has raised him as His Khalifa and he mentions His revelations, they all turn their backs ridiculing him and treating him as a liar, a “Bimaari” (sick), whereas the Khalifa elected by people, since five years now, he has not mentioned that he received a single word as revelation from Allah. He never uttered that Allah has spoken to him and instructed him to do this and that. But this Khalifa the whole world take him as an idol.
Compare these two Khalifas. Think over it. So stop mocking, or ridiculing a Khalifatullah. Think over the wrath of Allah. Allah has already started manifesting His anger throughout the world. Do not take this situation lightly, of little or no importance. We cannot know what can happen in a fraction of a second. How Allah can manifest His wrath? Mind you, your punishment will be doubled because you are followers of Hazrat Massih Maoud (a.s). After having trampled his teachings to dust, then Allah manifest such a wind which makes this dust blind you, and thus you just cannot see at all the signs of Allah; it will be very difficult. The eyes become swollen and unable to see, and you are left in complete darkness.
Calamities and Disasters will engulf the World
To conclude, Allah has informed me about the calamities to come. So, bear in mind that there will be so many corpse like the image of Qayamat Day and rivers of blood will flow. Animals also will not be spared. There will be such destruction as never seen before since the creation of man. Most of the buildings will be completely destroyed, there will be ruins everywhere. They will resemble like deserts; inhabitable places, as if nobody have ever lived there. We will face destruction coming from the sky. So both the sky and the earth will be shaken till only intelligent people can recognise that this is not ordinary disasters which have not been mentioned in other books. Then people will realise “what to do now?” Some people will be saved but most of them will be destroyed. The day is not too far to come. And even I have to say that these calamities are behind the door.
The world will have to face the scene of Qayamat, not only earthquakes; there will be other frightened scenes, destructions over destructions, because people have ceased to worship the unique Creator. All hearts and soul have been deviated to mundane affairs. Idolatry has taken form in all ways; in statues, sun, moon, all created things of Allah, plants and in all perishable things. Idolatry has even taken the form of human beings where they have taken creatures of Allah as the Creator.
Those who ask sincere repentance (Taubah) will be at peace. And so do those who have fear of God before this destruction occurs. So do come together for Allah is full of pity for His creatures. Do you think you can all escape these calamities? Surely not!
Do not think that America and Israel will be spared from these calamities as they had been crushing people for years. Very soon, they will have to face that promised punishment of Allah and Europe also will not be at peace. Asia also will not be secured and small islands will have no rescue from any country. Big towns and cities will be destroyed and will be left as deserts. Allah makes me understand that He is patient. People have misbehaved themselves too much under His sight. He bore silence but now He will manifest His wrath with much force.
Now listen well those who have ears. The hour will not take long to come. I am trying my level best as a humble servant of Allah who is filled with weaknesses. I ask all of you to stand on the same line like a family of all believers. We must cast away our differences especially in the field of Deen-é-Islam. Unveil our differences and obstacles; let us work like a body, a team, a faithful Jamaat (for the cause of Allah).
Remember that the members of Jamaat Ul Sahih Al Islam are true believers of Allah and all His prophets. No one is more superior to the other. Lucky are those who find themselves in this Jamaat. You are the luckiest persons who will work together (with the prophet of Allah) to revive the lost teachings of Islam (the Holy Quran and teachings of Hazrat Massih Maoud (a.s)). You are being shouldered with the great responsibilities to bring people into the fold of the light of Allah. Make it a point to gather all religions under the protection of Allah. All members of Jamaat Ul Sahih Al Islam should live peacefully as true brothers and sisters.
In order to be the winners of this peace, so obey and follow the instructions of Allah, your Rab who has more love for you than anybody else in this world. Your Rab wants to see you in peace, happy. Work in peace. On the other side, Allah has already decreed the sentences of the Zaalims (Disbelievers and Hypocrites). Nobody can stop the wrath of Allah from being expressed in the punishment which will be inflicted upon them.
There will also world economic crisis, petrol crisis – where the price per barrel will continue to increase excessively and at the level of our own country, people will suffer a lot. Day by day, life will become very hard. People must economize for the future. They must not spend their money on trivial things, like gambling, racing, alcohol drinks, drugs, cigarettes, which definitely is health destructive. And also this is a waste of money. So, live a simple life and economize because many people are suffering a lot especially every month everything is getting costly. Show your children also to inculcate a spirit of sacrifice, to economize their money and you must keep an eye on their every movement lest they tumble down into the pit of destruction where their lives, money and the honour of their family would be destroyed.
I am speaking the truth that our island, will not be spared too. The time of Noah (a.s) will come as well. The scene of the land of Thamud will be before your eyes. Allah will wait for a short while before He manifests His anger.
So, ask for Allah’s forgiveness; repent and stay awake in duahs and supplications so that Allah may have pity upon you all. Those who have turned their back to Allah and His humble messenger, have ridiculed, mocked at His signs, surely they are the best losers and arrogant. And they are not deemed to be called “human”.
“Those who are not with Me (Allah), they are dead for Me.”
These events which happened some weeks ago are really frightening and queer. According to these signs, the third world war is not so far! Allah knows better whether I have well understood the message He gave me.
But nevertheless it point towards the lost of many lives and great wars. An atomic war is not so far to explode. Allah knows better when this war will be declared, but we must stay in long prayers and supplications to Allah. Only Him who will protect us from these disasters calamities and reinforce our Imaan. He is the only one who can show us many signs to recognise His veracity. So turn towards Allah only. Insha-Allah.
