Human Morals and Spirituality- I & II

No religion can claim to be perfect unless it contains full teachings concerning human morals, for, although morals are not part of spirituality, yet they constitute the first step towards it, and without perfect morals man cannot attain to perfect spiritual development.
A study of those principles startles one into the admission that the world was merely groping in the dark in the search for moral principles. As it is not possible to attempt a detailed exposition of the whole question, but through the grace of Allah I shall give a brief reference to some matters of principle.
The Natural Condition of the Humans
The first matter relates to the definition of morals. The nature of moral qualities has been misconceived and has led mankind into serious error and is responsible for long but futile discourses in religious books. People fail to realise that there is an intermediate stage between animalism and morals. Animalism signifies that condition of man in which, owing to defective trainin…

The night of 27 Rajab: Isra and Miraj

The night of 27 Rajab:Isra and Miraj
And also, like you know, tonight is the 27 Rajab and thus before closing my sermon I will say a few words on it. On the night of 27 Rajab, occurred what is known as the Isra and Miraj (the spiritual journey and ascension to the heavens) which the Holy Prophet Hazrat Muhammad (pbuh) experienced. And according to the Hadith and other anecdotes of Islam it is a 27 Rajab that our beloved prophet (pbuh) made a night journey to Mecca and Jerusalem and later on to the heavens. It is baffling that many Muslims still think that the journey was a physical one, when verily it was a spiritual one. This is one of the reasons why they still believe that Jesus, Hazrat Isa (as) is still physically alive in the heavens and can come down with his body of clay back on earth. This provides them a consolation that this is possible as they believe that the journey of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) was a physical one.
Prophets of Allah usually speak in parables. Parables…

Qur'an: Treasures for the Human Mind

The human mind is very complex. It has developed gradually and that during different stages of its already God-given developed capacity. Allah (swt), throughout the centuries, through His different Messengers, Prophets and Reformers has continued to reveal such teachings which are suitable to each respective stage, till the time arrived when the mind of man had become fully developed and means of inter-communication between different sections of humanity had been perfected, and the world had in its advancement attained the stage when it might form one country and one nation. At this stage God sent the last law-bearing prophet, that is, Hazrat Muhammad (pbuh) with the last and complete code of revealed laws, that is, the Holy Quran, which it is a book which is the simplified reunification or summary of all revealed laws since the beginning of time. It contains teachings suitable to the needs of every age.
Whilst being the last law-bearing revealed book, however, the doors of revelation…

A Divine Message as Prophecy

Jamaat Ul Sahih Al Islam has just published a special Article/Booklet explaining the remarkable fulfillment of a Divine Message recieved by the Khalifatullah Hadhrat Munir Ahmad Azim Saheb (atba) of Mauritius. In a special Speech made to the Study Circle of the devout followers, the Khalifatullah (atba) had presciently indicated the dismal future of the then existing government as a consequence of its egregious deeds and also the essential outcome of the international litigation the then Governmentpreferred over the long-standing dispute with the UK over the sovereignty question of the Chagos Archipelago.
The special Booklet entitled "Prophecy on the Chagos Arbitration" is available at the official website of the Jamaat, to access it, click here. To read the special Article in the Sahih Al Islam Blog, clickhere
Reproduced below is the Preface to the Article from the blessed and profound pen of the Khalifatullah of our times, Hadhrat Munir Ahmad Azim Saheb (atba) of Mauritius…

Prophecy on the Chagos Arbitration

In a Special Speech delivered on 17 May 2012, the Khalifatullah Hadhrat Munir Ahmad Azim Sahib (atba) of Mauritius spoke succinctly on a range of world and national issues, and religious and political developments.
The Speech was made in the backdrop of Divine Revelations and it included many comments that were prescient and prophetic, waiting to be unveiled in the fullness of time. Almost three years down the timeline from that Speech, it is astonishing to reflect on the extraordinary Light of Truth the short document represents in many ways. For instance, the fall of the then political regime at the hands of the people and the unravelling of its corrupt deeds were clearly foretold in a revelatory language familiar to the readers of the  Qur'an where (future) events are described in phrases denoting something that has already taken place:
"OnlyAllahcan “dethroned” them (the present Government) and bring them to their destruction, towards their great humiliation and in such a w…

Human Rights and Justice Matters

Today (1st May), some countries in the world are celebrating International Workers’ Day, or Labour Day. Whether in France, or other major countries of the world, many, including Mauritius celebrate Labour Day to commemorate the working class, to give a just impetus to the injustices they had to suffer throughout the years. This is a holiday where the mass and the superpowers also must reflect on the human side of workers, regardless of their rank in the work industry and give them all the rights they deserve. Unfortunately, it is a sad fact that despite that the rights of workers and all people are recognized, but these rights are rarely taken into consideration.
Injustice today reigns in favour of the “strong”.
Injustice, despite the fact that it is considered one of the most repulsive characters of man, continues to make havoc in every corner of the world. We witness it in our daily lives. It is no longer seen as something bad but something good! People ignore its seriousness. The sit…
