'Umrah': The Khalifatullah in Arabia

Fulfillment of a Grand Prophecy

He selects for His mercy whom He wills. And Allah is the possessor of great bounty. (3: 75).

But is it (not) that every time a messenger came to you, with what your souls did not desire, you were arrogant? And a party (of messengers) you denied and another party you strived to kill. (2: 88).

When on divine order I proclaimed myself as Muhyi-ud-Din (Reviver of Religion) and the Khalifatullah (Caliph of Allah) of this era, as well as other titles that Allah has granted me, the Muslims, more precisely the envious Ahmadi mullahs, stood up against me and began to heap blames and dirt at me, despising me. People who claim to be theologians and defenders of Islam, of Ahmadiyyat and defenders of the 'caliph' roam everywhere to raise the masses against the Jamaat Ul Sahih Al Islam and against the Khalifatullah of this century.

Since the beginning of the Divine Manifestation and the proclamation of this humble servant of God as Muhyi-ud-Din and Khalifatullah etc., the mullahs have mixed politics with their anti-Jamaat Ul Sahih Al Islam designs. But who can stop the steamroller that has become Jamaat Ul Sahih Al Islam ? When God the Almighty is with us, who would dare to challenge Him and stand up against His will? Certainly the consequence of this one would be very lamentable, because Allah always supports His Elected/ Chosen servants and certainly fulfils His promises.

From the time of Hazrat Adam (as) until today, prophets have been raised for the guidance of humanity. When Satan was found guilty of insubordination and expelled from the presence of Allah, he asked for a delay until the Day of Judgement in order to deceive and mislead the servants of God. Allah gave him this delay and allowed him to do all his tricks. But at the same time, God emphatically predicted that He shall never be able to overcome His chosen servants.

It is from this punishment and the latitude (freedom and permission) given to Satan that began the fight between Satan and the servants of God and this struggle still lasts. Just as Satan is the leader of sinners, so God's chosen Prophet is the leader of the servants of God. Whenever the majority on earth falls under the influence of Satan, Allah raises a Prophet to bring people back on the right track/ path. An epic struggle then begins, and in the end the satanic group decreases each time in number and loses its strength.

On the other hand, the group of the Prophet keeps growing day by day. And finally, Satan must admit defeat. And this will last until the end of the world. In other words, whenever the Satanic army regains its strength to mislead humanity, Allah by His infinite grace will raise His own army to put an end to satanic rule. As long as there are men who will inhabit this land, as long as there is evil, God will raise His elect, His prophets to restore balance, be it at the worldly, moral, and spiritual levels.

So think about it! God is eternal as is His sacred word. The Holy Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) was raised by God as Khatam-an-Nabiyyeen, the Seal of the Prophets, and the last prophet bearer of the law (last law-bearing prophet). To say that there will be no more prophets after him, who are obviously non-bearers of the law, is to deny the Quranic teachings, and thus it is to deny the divine word.

In the same way, I address all the Ahmadi Muslims, you who recognize that the door of prophethood is still open after the Holy Prophet Muhammad (pbuh), you who have recognized and accepted the Promised Messiah of the last century, Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad (as), founder of Ahmadiyyat, why do you now refuse to recognize the Elect of God of your time? By His grace, Allah has raised me from among you, from the Ummah of Muhammad (pbuh) and from the Community (Jamaat) of the Promised Messiah (as), why do you still remain blind? Why do you make the deaf?

If the phrase ʻKhatam-an-Nabiyyeen’ meant ʻHe who puts an end to prophethood’ as proclaimed by other Muslim sects, and if after the Promised Messiah Ahmad (as) no other messiah should come, then why did God revealed those verses of the Holy Quran, such verses that shall last until the day of Judgement, the day of Resurrection?

O children of Adam, if there come to you messengers from among you relating to you My verses (Signs/ revelations), then whoever fears Allah and reforms - there will be no fear concerning them, nor will they grieve. (7: 36).

If we (the Jamaat Ul Sahih Al Islam) must accept what other Muslim sects and what other Ahmadis who follow the man-elected 'caliph' say that there will be no more elects/ prophets of Allah who will come after the Holy Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) and the Messiah and Mahdi Mirza Ghulam Ahmad (as), that in the presence of (such) a caliph, there is no more the need for the advent of a Caliph of Allah (Khalifatullah) who comes with the Holy Spirit (Ruh'il Quddus), how could Allah (swt) say in the verse that I just mentioned that there would come other prophets, other guides?

In the Surah An-Nur (The Light) - chapter of the Holy Quran, Allah (swt) says:

Allah has promised those who have believed among you and done righteous deeds that He He will definitely make them successors (caliphs/ inheritors) upon the earth just as He granted it to those before them. (24: 56).

It is in the Muhammadan Ummah also that Allah (swt) will raise caliphs (successors) as He raised caliphs in the Ummah of Musa (Moses), such as Harun (Aaron), Yushaa (Joshua), Da'ud (David) and Sulayman (Solomon), may the peace of God be upon them all! The verse means that they will be caliphs just like the prophets before them.

Prophecy on Massih performing 'Tawaf'

And remember the prophecies pronounced from the mouth of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) concerning the advent of the Promised Messiah, the second coming of Isa Ibn Maryam. Remember his vision of the Messiah of Allah, according to a version of white and rosy complexion, and according to another version of swarthy/ dark complexion - the most beautiful of the two categories - doing the Tawaf (circumambulation) of Holy Ka'aba? Did you know that he (pbuh) said that the Messiah will perform either Umrah or Hajj or both and that he will deliver the Talbiyah (Labbaik Allahumma Labbaik…) from a place called Rawha? (Muslim, reported by Abu Hurairah (ra)).

The Muslim world has stubbornly persisted in denigrating the status of Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad (as), for though claiming to be the Promised Messiah of his time, he had not fulfilled the said prophecy. But we, Ahmadi Muslims, remained firm in our convictions because we knew very well what God taught us, according to these Quranic verses, addressing the Holy Prophet Muhammad (pbuh):

So be patient; indeed, the promise of Allah is truth. And whether We show you some of what We have promised them or We take you in death, it is to Us they will be returned. And We have already sent messengers before you. Among them are those (whose stories) We have related to you, and among them are those (whose stories) We have not related to you. And it was not for any messenger to bring a sign (or verse or revelation) except by permission of Allah. So when the command of Allah comes, it will be concluded in truth, and the falsifiers will thereupon lose (all). (40: 78-79).

The Khalifatullah (aba) in Arabia

By the grace of Allah, the day has come in our times that the humble servant and messenger elected by Allah, and the faithful follower of Muhammad (pbuh) and Ahmad (as), has fulfilled according to the promise and the immense grace of Allah the prophecy that the Messiah will make the Umrah or the Hajj or both. Be that as it may, the vision of our beloved prophet Hazrat Muhammad (pbuh) has been fulfilled in this humble servant and Messiah of Allah, the Promised Messiah of this era by making me perform the Umrah (the lesser Hajj - pilgrimage - to Mecca) 3 times, and it is an honour that I received from Allah, that He opened the way for me after many difficulties to fulfil my first Umrah on 20 February 2018, the exact day of the prophecy of the advent of the Promised Son & Reformer (Musleh Maud) previously received by Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad (as). 

17 Years of Divine Manifestation

And this year marks 17 years (2001-2018) since Allah raised me as His Chosen Servant with divine revelation, which we refer today as the Divine Manifestation of this era. And it also marks 10 years since the foundation of the Jamaat Ul Sahih Al Islam (2008-2018). Alhamdulillah, Summa Alhamdulillah. All praises are for Allah who fulfilled His promise - for, remember the divine message of 22 March 2017, when Allah revealed to me (in English): 

“When you leave Makkah bring Islam home, not just dates and Zamzam water.” 

- which makes Jamaat Ul Sahih Al Islam march towards victory - the divine victory - in all serenity. And all this has been promised to us since the dawn of the Divine Manifestation (at its very beginning). Alhamdulillah, Summa Alhamdulillah. 

By the grace of Allah, during my stay in Mecca and Medina, Allah entrusted to me revelations and visions/ dreams, and informed me that all those - among those who believed in my advent and then left me - who will sincerely repent and rejoin the rank of this humble servant will be pardoned and receive divine forgiveness.

So, to end O my Muslim brethren of different sects and my Ahmadi brothers, I came from Allah (swt) in this era, not only for the reform, but also to revive the true divine teachings, for the whole world, for whole humanity. Whenever someone comes from God the Almighty on earth in accordance with the prophecies, the peoples of the earth have reacted very badly, except those whom God has given them faith. It has been customary for ignorant and haughty people (those who refuse to submit to Allah's decrees) to ridicule him, insult him and make him suffer. I was not spared from it either. But the purpose of God cannot be hindered by humans. It is the Prophet of God who ultimately triumphs. Alhamdulillah.

As Allah (swt) says in the Holy Quran:

Kataballaho la-aghlebanna ana wa rosoli ---Allah has written, “I will surely overcome, I and My messengers.” (58: 22).

May Allah accept our sacrifices and prayers, and continue to bless us and may the world finally recognize His Manifestation, Signs, and Messenger, and reform themselves for a better world and for their own salvation. Insha-Allah, Ameen.

----Friday Sermon of 16 March 2018 (28 Jamad'ul Aakhir 1439 AH) delivered by Hadhrat Khalifatullah Munir Ahmad Azim (aba) of Mauritius.
