Reclaiming Islam's Pristine Essence

By the grace of Allah, nowadays people in the four corners of the world are lending positive ears, that is, listening carefully and acknowledging the message of the Jamaat Ul Sahih Al Islam.

Allah (swt) chose us to transmit the divine message, the same message which was given to Hazrat Muhammad (pbuh). As our noble master and prophet, Hazrat Muhammad (pbuh) is no more today, but nevertheless Allah (swt) has provided ways and means for His message to be transmitted in our present time in a way to connect both eras.

Who are those people who are capable of spreading this message?

It is verily those who possess the characteristics of the founder of Islam and the Seal of all Prophets (pbuh) who are the one who shall be able to carry on this message with the express commandment of Allah and the blessings of the Ruh-il-Quddus. In other words, they have to possess the same behaviours and willingness as those of Hazrat Muhammad (pbuh) to execute that great divine plan. These characteristics have been described from the Holy Quran itself as follows:

a)      Yatloo alayhim Ayaatihi:  that is, the one who reads the verses of the Holy Quran and explains them to others.

b)     Wa yuzakkiihim: that is, when he reads these verses, he purifies the hearts of people and converts them in the good sense.

c)      Wa yu’allimahum Kitaaba: that is, he teaches people the Holy Quran.

d)     Wa Hikma: that is, and he teaches people also the Wisdom.

There are numerous people who have accepted the message of Allah but they are not convinced. Some have accepted the message of Allah with good hearts and want to do good deeds, but they don’t know what to do exactly and how to do them.

Hence, it’s the Taleem-ul-Kitaab which explains what pleases Allah and what displeases Him. It’s very important for all of us to acquire knowledge and its BEST SOURCE is from the Holy Quran. And moreover, to have the best explanation of its verses, we all need the Best Lecturer, one who is Divinely-Guided and possesses Taqwa, fear of Allah in his heart.


Surely, we do have thousands of intellectuals and intelligent people but unfortunately they do not have fear of Allah in their heart and spirituality. They are arrogant, proud of only their academic knowledge and behave as highly spiritual people when in fact they are frauds, corruptors and complete opposites of what Allah has ordained. 

Indeed God’s Chosen Ones have great Taqwa, Imaan and Ihsan so as to guide humanity on the right path. The messengers of Allah always concentrate themselves on two main factors: prayers (Salat) and supplications (duahs). Each step taken forward should be tackled with Taqwa and wisdom.

For this grand but hard task, Allah had chosen Hazrat Muhammad (pbuh) from the beginning of time which was extraordinary from all angles. Then came the time of the Khulafa-e-Rashideen, followed by that of the Mujaddidin. The latter are people who come to teach and explain the practical side of religion. But their activities are not universal. For example, like history teaches us, they came country-wise within the framework of Islam; that’s why Muslims scattered all over the world had not acquired same knowledge from same leaders, and thus with the passage of time, the followers of the different Mujaddid cannot have one same Islamic mindset, thus furthering divisions. From a Hadith we can learn that:

1)     One day, the mosques will be filled with Mussalis but void of Taqwa.

2)   The Mullahs will be the cruellest creatures under the canopy of the sky. They will be egoistic people and will work only for their own interests, i.e. filling their own pockets with others’ wealth.

3)     If faith were to go up to the Pleiades, then each time this happens, Allah shall send His chosen ones to bring it back to the people.
 
Thus, in these periods of misery (spiritual death) no one will care for the study of the Holy Quran and to follow the right path. Therefore men of God have to come at the end of time in the last Ummah, the Ummati Aakhireen which will resemble like the Ummati Awwaleen. The message of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) was meant not only for the Arabs among whom he was raised but for all non-Arabs as well, and not only for his contemporaries but also for the generations to come till the end of time. Or, that the Holy Prophet (pbuh) will be raised among another people who have not yet joined his immediate followers, meaning to say that spiritual reflections/ manifestations of the Holy Prophet (pbuh) will come from among the Aakhireen and will bring back Islam to its pristine glory.

CONCLUSION

Hence, in this era the Jamaat Ul Sahih Al Islam has been raised by Allah (swt) having a Khalifatullah as the Worldwide Chief Spiritual Leader and being also a divine recipient and the Reviver of faith for all communities (universal). Allah has created this Jamaat in this era so that the Aakhireen be able to join the spiritual ranks of the Awwaleen. Hence, it is very important for all of us to inculcate Taqwa in our heart so that we can flourish and bear spiritual fruits.

O members of the Jamaat Ul Sahih Al Islam we have to accomplish four obligations:

 1) We must study and read the Holy Quran fervently and thoroughly.

 2)  We must build up our Tazqiya, that is, to reform ourselves so as the world can witness and have confidence that this is the right Jamaat where innovations and bidat have been completely eradicated from Islam, and moreover where Taqwa and good behaviour have been established.

3)     We must spread the message of the Holy Quran and knowledge throughout the whole world.

4)     All our actions should be based on Taqwa and wisdom.  

May Allah open the hearts of the seekers of truth and guide them in the right path, to reap the blessings of the Divine Manifestation of this era, an era which is unique to their existence. Ameen.


Praise be to Allah, the Lord of the Worlds.
