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 the Khulafa-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 follow the divine instructions as to how to obtain (true) faith and who obey Allah (swt) in the performance of good deeds – whereby these shall be reflected in their deeds – then Allah shall establish them as His representatives, Khalifatullah on earth like He did with those who came before them. And moreover Allah shall reinforce for them their religion which He has perfected and loved for them and He shall transform their fear into security.

Verily, this promise (and actual materialization of that promise) is a divine gift to the sincere believers who have firm faith in the unicity of Allah, who have Taqwa (fear for Allah only) and not fear for creature/s. They worship Allah only and do not associate anything to Him in this worship. Their love for Allah (swt) is infinite and they are always ready to lay down their lives for the cause of Allah.

A Khalifatullah is a guardian for everybody; he becomes their heart and brain and whenever the Khalifatullah sees a sprout (the manifestation) of Shirk, he eliminates it. A Khalifatullah also does not worry about what the world may think of him – either positive or negative. He trusts that in such situations of negativity (against his person), Allah (swt) shall always help him (His Khalifatullah) for it is Allah who has chosen and raised him.

With the advent of a Khalifatullah, what has transpired in the past in the times of the Khalifatul-Massih, Insha-Allah, with the help of Allah, the Khalifatullah shall not permit that all these mistakes be repeated in the Jamaat wherein the Khalifatullah is found! And I, as the Khalifatullah of this era, I make this firm announcement that wherever there is the Jamaat Ul Sahih Al Islam in the world, we shall not let innovations and Shirk enter the Jamaat. If ever these exist in the Jamaat Ul Sahih Al Islam, that I am not aware of, then (after taking knowledge of it) I cannot let these kinds of Bai’ats remain attached to me as the Khalifatullah of this age; I cannot let Shirk and innovations etc. enter the Jamaat. For me personally, I would prefer that these kinds of people break their Bai’ats and this shall not affect me. If someone becomes Murtad, Allah (swt) shall enable hundred pious and sincere people, Muwahid to enter the fold of the Jamaat (Jamaat Ul Sahih Al Islam).

Verily, the Khalifatullah and the Muttaquun around the Khalifatullah, we have the duty towards our Creator to fill the world with the Tawhid (unicity of Allah), and it is our duty to protect the Tawhid at all levels. Thus, my advice to all those who are adhering to the Jamaat Ul Sahih Al Islam, you need to hold fast to this Bai’at (oath of allegiance) that you have made with Allah and the Khalifatullah by really understanding all that I am telling you (to make you understand). Insha-Allah.

Bear in mind, when Allah sends His Khalifa (Khalifatullah), along with him He sends the Ruh-il-Quddus – the Khalifatullah is like a beautifully wrapped gift from Allah, and the Ruh-il-Quddus is that beautiful gift-wrap which enhances the Khalifatullah with the divine light for the people, to give the message of Allah to one and all – to remove you all from darkness. To acquire that Divine Light, you need to attach yourselves firmly to the Khalifatullah and the work to build the Ummat-e-Wahida (a sole community of people, of believers), and it is the exclusive duty of the Khalifatullah and there is nobody else who has received this privilege. Allah has chosen me by His immense grace and in His infinite wisdom as the Khalifatullah of this era and it is Allah who has given me this honour, grace and mission to build that Ummat-e-Wahida which shall serve Hazrat Muhammad (pbuh). Therefore, this humble self, the Khalifatullah has received this mission from Allah in this era.

What I can say, with much regrets and sadness is that those who listened to their idols without praying to Allah (swt) to seek guidance and help of Allah to know whether I am truthful or not, and who have listened to their idols to reject this divine truth, and who have turned their backs with arrogance, they shall (bitterly) regret it one day. Then it shall be too late for them. They shall regret having listened to their idols and all false versions (of people concerning the truth). They shall regret having cut all relations with me. The cutting of all relations to me is tantamount to cutting their relations to the Ummat-e-Wahida also and thus all efforts which they may do, even if these are noble efforts, even then, these shall be useless, reaping no fruit/ success.

Since the year 2001 till now in year 2015 – 14 years, these people got to witness many clear signs from Allah but they persisted in rejecting the truth and remained blind. But then, where can they ever go with closed eyes? So, congratulations to (happy/ blessed are) those who have recognised the Khalifatullah of this era and did not fear any boycott or persecution or even the least trial! Come what may, they have not hesitated for a fraction of a second to accept and believe sincerely in the Khalifatullah of this era, and they have held firm that belief which they have on Allah and the Khalifatullah that they work tirelessly night and day for the cause of Allah, to give to others around the world the news of the advent of the Khalifatullah in this era. 

They spend their time, energy and money (for this noble cause), and moreover they make sacrifices over sacrifices with contentment despite that their lives, honour or (mundane) work may be threatened. These threats/ risks do not affect them. They know that the promise which Allah (swt) has made with the believers have been fulfilled in this era. Therefore, in these sacrifices, there is no danger for my firm and sincere disciples. I must say also that my disciples are reviving the disciples of our beloved prophet Hazrat Muhammad (pbuh) and whatever instructions I give them, whatever appeal I make, they say “Labbaik” (they come forward without any hesitation) and their fidelity with the Khalifatullah is also fidelity with Allah and that with the Holy Prophet (pbuh) and the Promised Messiah (as).

A Khalifatullah does not give importance to his own being. That is why people who do not believe in his claim say: “If this kind of people who is receiving divine revelations and proclaiming himself to be a Messenger of Allah?” Then, they mock him, putting him to ridicule. The Khalifatullah (does not need people to judge his faith or state for he) knows very well his own sins and weaknesses and he knows very well to what position Allah (swt) has elevated him to occupy, and Allah (swt) shall definitely protect him and his ministry as the Man of God. Understand this poetic verse from the sayings of Hazrat Massih Ma’ud (as): “Oh you imbeciles, who are coming to attack me with sickles, bear in mind that I am a branch laden with fruits and the Gardener shall never let you attack me.”

A Khalifatullah is one who is raised by the hand of Allah, and thus, definitely he is that branch laden with such fruits which captures the attention of all people. Therefore, these are fruits which Allah (swt) has re-established in the world and He has enabled that plant to flourish and remain evergreen so that it produces the fruit of Tawhid. If you attack him with evil intent, or you have bad thoughts on him (and the divine mission/ purpose when Allah elevated him), then this would mean your own destruction for it is Allah who stands by him to support him. Allah (swt) has established His Khalifatullah on earth so that he may attain to his ultimate goal, that is, establish only one religion on earth, to spread the Tawhid and make the world accept the Holy Prophet (pbuh) – whose advent has been prophesised by all religions and in all sacred books of the past prophets – as the Seal of all prophets in the four corners of the world.

May Allah open the heart of the seekers of truth to accept this truth before the great punishment of Allah (swt) falls upon the earth. Therefore, let us pray that Allah (swt) keep His divine punishment away from us and that the world recognise this grand truth. Insha-Allah, Ameen, Summa Ameen.
