The Larger Meaning of 'Qurbani'

Whenever the month of Dhul Hijjah approaches, we remember the ordeal that Ibrahim (as) had to go through during his old age. 
It was a unique event of its kind, and which history has never mentioned one similar to it.
The Quran confirms this fact:
“And when they had both submitted (to the command of Allah) and he put him down upon his forehead, We called to him, "O Ibrahim, you have fulfilled the vision. Thus do We reward the doers of good. ‘That was indeed a clear trial. And We ransomed him with a great sacrifice.”(37: 104-108).
If Ibrahim (as) was the subject of such a trial, certainly the Supreme Creator does not require from us this heavy burden. But everyone must know that success in the life on earth, and especially that in the hereafter will never happen as long as the concept of sacrifice is not well rooted in the mind and heart of the believer (the servant of Allah).
The sacrifice is not limited to ‘Qurbani’ or ‘Udhiya’ (blood sacrifice) that everyone already knows. But this ter…

On the occasion of Eid-ul-Adha 2015, Jamaat-Ul-Sahih-Al-Islam-Kerala, South organized a Two-Day Spiritual Retreat Programme at the historic Noor'ul Islam Masjid, Mathra. The Amir Jamaat, Jenab R. Jamaluddin Raother Saheb led the discussions and meeting proceedings held on September 24-25, 2015. 
Alhamdulillah, Soumma Alhamdulillah, those who participated in the Retreat, left the Mosque with a renewed sense of spiritual awareness and unique internal contentment/ inner peace. 
The various expositions of Islamic teachings and viewpoints made by the Khalifatullah of our times, Hadhrat Munir Ahmad Azim Saheb (atba) of Mauritius-who is a living Renewer of the Faith of Islam and a frequent recipient of Divine revelations- formed the backdrop of the proceedings and discussions at the Retreat. Presented below is the Transcript of the special Message delivered the Khalifatullah (atba) for the benefit of the fledgling Kerala Jamaat.

Eid-Ul-Adha: Sacrificing Our Best Assets

And for all religion We have appointed a rite (of sacrifice) that they may mention the name of Allah over what He has provided for them of (sacrificial) animals. For your god is one God, so to Him submit. And, give good tidings to the humble (before their Lord), 
Who, when (the name of) Allah is mentioned, their hearts are fearful, and (to) the patient over what has afflicted them, and the establishers of prayer and those who spend from what We have provided them. 
And the camels and cattle We have appointed for you as among the symbols of Allah; for you therein is good. So mention the name of Allah upon them when lined up (for sacrifice); and when they are (lifeless) on their sides, then eat from them and feed the needy and the beggar. Thus have We subjected them to you that you may be grateful. 
Their meat will not reach Allah, nor will their blood, but what reaches Him is piety from you. Thus have We subjected them to you that you may glorify Allah for that (to) which He has guided yo…

Hajj: Fifth Pillar of Islam

THE MONTH OF HAJJ(DHUL-HIJJAH)
The twelfth and last month of the Islamic calendar is the month of the pilgrimage (Hajj), commonly known as ‘Dhul Hijjah’. It is a month full of blessings and as the name indicates, it is in this holy month that we, Muslims perform the Hajj, the fifth pillar of Islam. 
In this blessed month, one must make maximum of acts of worship (Ibaadat), such as: supererogatory (Nafil) prayers(Salaat), Tilawat-ul-Quran, fasting, reciting the Takbir and Tasbih and giving Sadaqaat etc. because there are many blessings and rewards in these works, especially during its first 10 days.
Hadhrat Hafsa (ra) said that there were four things that the Holy Prophet Hazrat Muhammad (pbuh) never missed, and these include:
1. To fast the Day of Ashura (10th of Muharram); 2. To fast from 1st to 9th day of Dhul-Hijjah; 3. To fast three days (13th, 14th and 15th) every month (except the 13th Dhul-Hijjah which is prohibited); 4. To perform before the mandatory Fajr Salaat two cycles of Sun…

Mecca Tragedy: Revelations on Victims

In his Friday Sermon of September 18, 2015(04 Dhul-Hijjah 1436 Hijri) the Khalifatullah Hadhrat Munir Ahmad Azim Saheb (atba) of Mauritius shared his thoughts on the recent tragic event in Mecca where a crane crash caused the death and injuries for hundreds of pilgrims who flocked to the City of God for the annual pilgrimage of Hajj. Based on his fervent prayers for the victims of this tragedy and the subsequent Divine revelations in this context, the Khalifatullah (atba) ruminates on the meaning of life and death for believers in the complex conditions of our times.
Read the Extracts from the Friday Sermon Below:   
...And as I’ve said, here in Mauritius we received on Friday night, 11 September 2015 the sad news of the tragedy that occurred at the Grand Mosque of Mecca where 107 people died after a huge crane collapsed and in which more than 230 people were also injured. It happened a few days before the great pilgrimage that drew hundreds of thousands of faithful around the world.

Never Insult the Beliefs of Others

"...I would like to briefly address on the unfortunate incident which has transpired last week (04-05 September 2015) at Rivière des Anguilles in the South of Mauritius. The Jamaat Ul Sahih Al Islam and this humble self strongly condemn what some strong-headed and senseless “Muslims” have done at the Amma Tookay Temple, wrecking some idols found there under alcohol influence.
Islam is a tolerant religion, and preaches no compulsion in religion and respect for others. Both Allah, our Glorious Creator and our perfect role model, Hazrat Muhammad (pbuh) have both condemned such acts because, when one, in occurrence a person who says he is Muslim abuses and wrecks the idols of other faiths on his own, then he is in fact inviting the other party to abuse Allah and Islam and to wreck the perfect teachings of Islam.
And secondly, alcoholic drinks are absolutely forbidden in Islam. Thus the acts of these people are not Islamic at all. Instead they are presenting a dirty image of Islam and …

The metaphor of 'Fruit-bearing Trees'

“This (Quran) is enlightenment for mankind and guidance and mercy for a people who have Faith with certainty.  What! Do those who commit evils think that We shall hold them equal with those who believe and do righteous deeds - that equal will be their life and their death? Ill is the judgment that they make.

And Allah created the heavens and earth with truth and so that every soul may be rewarded for what it has earned, and they will not be wronged.”
---(Surah Al Jathiya45: 21-23)

By the grace of Allah, I continue my sermon today on the same subject that I started two weeks ago.
In my last Friday Sermon (04 September 2015), I told you that when Allah makes this honoured treatment with someone (where the person is under the refuge of Allah), then it is as if he/she becomes a beautiful plant that emerges, which flourished (in the Garden of Allah). He becomes a plant of good deeds, a plant that yields fruit. Allah protects him and keeps away from him all sorts of problems and dangers. 
Now you…

Secure against the coming Divine Wrath

“This (Quran) is enlightenment for mankind and guidance and mercy for a people who have Faith with certainty. 
What! Do those who commit evils think that We shall hold them equal with those who believe and do righteous deeds - that equal will be their life and their death? Ill is the judgment that they make. 

And Allah created the heavens and earth with truth and so that every soul may be rewarded for what it has earned, and they will not be wronged.”
---(Surah Al Jathiya, 45: 21-23)

These are the same verses of Surah Al-Jathiya(Chapter 45) which I explained last week and my explanation is not yet completed. Thus, by the grace of Allah, I now continue my explanation of these three verses.
So Allah’s wrath is coming down on earth, and only those who make a complete repentance for their sins and come in the refuge of Allah, they are the ones who will be saved from the divine punishment. Certainly the life and death of the righteous people can at no time be like the life and death of those wh…

'Tabligh' Seminar in Kerala: A Report

By the grace of Allah, our brothers from the Jamaat Ul Sahih Al Islam, Kerala – North Zone organised a special 2-Day seminar, focusing on the intention and aims of the Jamaat Ul Sahih Al Islam, and the advent of a Khalifatullah to all people teaching them the way of life, the way to Allah which Islam entails.
The seminar started after the Salat-ul-Jumu’ah on Friday 14 August 2015 with a Holy Quran reading by our brother E. Hamza Saheb at 4.00 pm.

It was indeed the fulfilmen…
