'Killing of Innocents is against Islam'

The face of the Muslim world is increasingly stained with the blood of the innocents. In the recent past, imperial interventions over a number of Muslim countries have unleashed political consequences and  thereby, exacerbated sectarian tensions among different ethnic and religious groups. Trapped in the quagmire of the sectarian tensions between the Shias and the Sunnis,  in many States- Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, Yemen, etc- a host of terror groups are operating  in the name of Islam- ranging from the Taliban in Afghanistan/Pakistan to the ISIL ( the so-called Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant) under its Caliph Abu Baker al Baghdadi. These entities have poisoned the fair name of Islam by inextricably linking their quest for political power-grabbing with Islamic ethics. They make world headlines for all the wrong reasons in our times- including the destruction of historic monuments and cultural artefacts of enduring significance for the human civilization. They commit wanton and in…

The Instrumental Role of Divine Revelations

Revelation may be a single word but its meaning is immense, just like a drop of water rippling a whole ocean. The nature of revelation is various, and among the types of revelations, we have satanic whisperings also which are not to be confused with the spiritual truthful context of revelations, that is, Divine Revelations. Any person can receive divine inspirations, yet divine revelations, as pure and frequent as that received by messengers of Allah are of an exquisite nature, which leaves no doubt as to the source of this special light. Therefore, revelation in Islam is tantamount to the extraordinary connection which links an exceptional servant of Allah to His Lord. ( Inset: a depiction of the archangel Gabriel instructing Divine revelations to the Holy Prophet (sa), from the manuscript Jami' al-tawarikhby Rashid-al-Din Hamadani, AD 1307).
This servant of Allah comes to taste of a special bond through which Allah reveals Himself to His servant, and little by little – just like …

'Musleh Maoud': Trajectories of a Grand Prophecy

Before ending my sermon on this vast subject – Revelations – I wish to say a few words on the prophecy of 20th February 1886. Today is the 20th February, and this reminds us of the grand prophecy in the announcement of 20th February 1886 concerning the Promised Messiah’s entreaties to Allah in Hoshiarpur to bless him with such a physical son as to become his physical and spiritual heir in majestic respect.
A prophet, envoy of Allah always wants pious children, from his own lineage and blood to carry on his mission, his works with the same intensity of devotion as he showed towards Allah throughout his life on earth. Prophets of Allah seek such gems from their own blood but only after supplicating Allah for them. When Hazrat Ibrahim (as) prayed for a blessed son and messenger of Allah, after being childless for years, he sought a miracle of Allah from the grace and majesty of Allah, and his Zaki Ghulam (Pure Son) was not only from his own blood, but also his spiritual heir, in that whi…

'Divine Revelations are not the Inspirations of Mind'

A very serious misconception which is prevailing in my time, in this era with a divine manifestation, and which has undermined the foundations of all religions, so that the very essence of religion is being completely revolutionized as a result of which, in place of the divine light of revelation, it is the ideas and conceptions of the human mind which are being substituted and put forward as the truth and thus it is that entirely erroneous definition of revelation which has found general acceptance. Independence of thoughts and the length of time which had elapsed since the appearance of the seal of prophets Hazrat Muhammad (pbuh) had led the greater portion of the world to believe that revelation was mere inspiration of the mind. This was due, to the belief and conception that God could not speak in words as He was not a materiel Being and was not dependent upon material means like men.
I explain from my personal experience that revelation is conveyed in words and the mode of conveyi…

Into the sunset: Navin Ramgoolam

Before closing my sermon, I would like to say a few words on the Charges and Arrest which the ex-Prime Minister of Mauritius, Navinchandra Ramgoolam had to undergo since last Friday 06 February 2015. It never pays to be arrogant and creating such an atmosphere as to make Mauritius be led by autocratic leadership disguised as a democratic one. 
You will recall my dear disciples that since 2010, I and some of our members have gone from circumscription to circumscription to pray that Allah overturns such a leader and political party whose agenda is to finish Mauritius, bringing Mauritians to a state of poverty and tight economic state. And you will recall that recently in the midst of the general elections 2014, I told you about a dream in which Sir Aneerood Jugnauth was not condemning Paul Berenger, but instead praising him for the strategies that he has (to clean Mauritius and the Labour Party also). 
And you are witnessing that since Friday, 06 February, 2015 the former Prime Minister N…

A Message of Peace for the Jamaat-e-Ahmadiyya

Some Ahmadi Muslim brothers grope in the darkness of their sheer ignorance of a sublime reality among them. They, in their naivety, harp absolutely baseless and foolishly wrong notions on the advent of a Man of God among them, the Khalifatullah(a Reviver of Faith/ a Messenger of AllahHadhrat Munir Ahmad Azim Sahib (atba) of Mauritiuswho speaks with the help of the Holy Spirit (Roohul Qudus). They delude themselves with suspicion and ill feelings, as they consider that the advent of the Khalifatullah (atba) will destroy the Jamaat-e-Ahmadiyya as they know it, instead of seeing it as the very fulfillment of the sacred revelations vouchsafed to, and grand prophecies made by, the Promised Massih Hadhrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad (as) of Qadian in the previous era. 
Some Ahmadis in India have recently asked us certain questions regarding the origins of the Divine Manifestation in Mauritius and its relationship, encounters with the Nizam-e-Jamaat , sharing their view that with the descent of Divi…

Khalifatullah (atba) visits London: A Report

By the grace of Allah, the year 2014 has been full with the blessings and miracles of Allah.Allah showed His support, succour and blessings upon His Khalifatullah Hazrat Munir A. Azim (atba) and Jamaat Ul Sahih Al Islam in extraordinary ways. Allah opened such doors which were thought to be long closed.These doors were opened by divine will and under the special instruction of Allah to His Khalifatullah to show His infinite power and the truth of His Divine Manifestation in this era through the appointment of His chosen servant Munir A. Azim (atba) to the office of Khalifatullah.
After years of patience, Allah blessed His Jamaat, opening the doors of victory whereby not only people received the divine message but many also entered the fold of the Divine Manifestation of this age. Alhamdulillah. Jamaat Ul Sahih Al Islam is not in need of many people who are empty of faith, but it needs quality believers, even if they are only a few. But Allah shall breathe in His essence to purify them …

Divine Elects Lit Up the Path of Guidance

The Universality of Divine Providence

Wa ‘immin ‘ummatin ‘illaa khalaa fiihaa naziir. “There is no nation but has had its Warner.” (Surah al Fatir; 35: 25)
All nations received revelation. There is an important question which relates to the person of God and man and that which subsists between man and man; in other words; which nations have been the recipients of revelation and on what principles were they selected by God to receive His revelation? Without the solution of this question, the reform which the Promised Messiah had attempted in relation to other questions relating to the being of God, would not have been complete. With regard to this question he pointed out that, as God is the Lord of the whole universe, his guidance could not be confined to any particular nation. As he is the Lord of all mankind and has equipped all of them with thinking minds, he could not deprive any nation of His guidance. As I have recited in the beginning of my sermon: “There is no nation but has had i…

Shocks of Trial after the Loss of Faith

Mir Abbas Ali Ludhiyanwiwas among the very first disciple(s) of the Promised Massih Hadhrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad(as) of Qadian- by joining him in 1882, when the Promised Massih (as) was beginning to appear on the religious horizon, on the very early days of the Divine Manifestation in the then British India. His sincerity and spiritual services over a period of a decade was of such quality that the Promised Massih (as) wrote about him, mentioning even Divine revelations he said he received: "Mir Sahib is a person with great spiritual condition and has a spiritual connection with this humble self. And to prove his level of sincerity, it is enough that once this humble self received an inspiration in his favour: 'aslohoo sabitun wa farohoo fis samaa'(his roots are firmly fixed and his branches are in the sky)." (Izala-e-Auham, Roohani Khazain vol.3 p.528). Yet, unfortunately for him, Mir Abbas Ali failed in the trials of patience and steadfastness in course of time, the …
