Pride and Prejudice in the Jamaat-e-Ahmadiyya

O my Lord! Grant unto us wives and offspring who will be the comfort of our eyes, and give us (the grace) to lead the righteous. (Al-Furqan 25: 75).

Our Lord! Let not our hearts deviate now after Thou hast guided us, but grant us mercy from Thine own Presence; for Thou art the Grantor of bounties without measure. (Al-Imran 3: 9).

Our Lord! Condemn us not if we forget or fall into error. (Al-Baqara 2: 287).

Our Lord! Lay not on us a burden greater than we have strength to bear. Blot out our sins, and grant us forgiveness. Have mercy on us. Thou art our Protector; Help us against those who stand against faith. (Al-Baqara 2: 287).

 'Practice' versus 'preaching' in the Nizam-e-Jamaat

The Ahmadiyya Muslim Community headed by a man-elected caliph deceives the world with his beautiful speeches about peace and the need to have Love for All and Hatred for None.

As Caliph and Messenger of Allah, it is my duty to put before the world, especially in front of all Ahmadi Muslims around the world, the true face of their present caliph, who certainly does not practice what he preaches.

The Break-up of Ahmadi Families in Mauritius

To hide his face, he tells people who ask him questions about the current situation in Mauritius, a situation that for more than seventeen years has turned sour in the Ahmadiyya Community of Mauritius, [that everything is fine]. With the instructions, directives that come directly from the current caliph, the chiefs of the Jamaat Ahmadiyya in Mauritius are doing whatever they like by implementing what they call, the caliph’s instructions, such instructions that they absolutely must implement, despite the fact that these same instructions are against the vital teachings of the Holy Qur’an and the Sunnah of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (pbuh), and even the teachings of the Promised Messiah, Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad (as).

In view of the world, the caliph preaches peace, he is a peaceful man, a man of peace. He insists that there is no problem in Mauritius, that everything is fine in the best of all worlds! But in truth, the more he masks the break-up and massacres in the Jamaat Ahmadiyya in Mauritius and elsewhere in the world within the Ahmadi families, the more the truth turns into a powerful wave to reverse his Machiavellian plans. He takes himself as a gatherer, but in truth he is only a man who wants to divide families and break the Muslim unity and family union.

O Ahmadi Muslims around the world, especially the Mauritians, remember, the caliph you take as truthful is not connoisseur of the unseen, he is not even able to act as a mediator and judge with Taqwa. Remember the centenary of the Ahmadiyya Community of Mauritius in the year 2015. After all the preparations, he did not come to Mauritius to listen to your grievances and rejoice with you. He is very familiar with the troubling issues in Mauritius within the Ahmadi Muslim families, but he has not come to solve the problem and restore peace. Even in the year 2005, during his visit to Mauritius, what was his duty? To have a face to face, and seek the truth because the Divine Manifestation and also all the evil plans of his Amir (now ex-Amir) were born during the caliphate of his predecessor, Hazrat Mirza Tahir Ahmad (May Allah forgive him).

Therefore, from the beginning of his mandate, the arrogance of the Ahmadiyya caliph Mirza Masroor Ahmad against the Divine Manifestation in Mauritius and around the world is destructive.

'Khalifatullah': A Divine Elect, or Man/assembly-elect ?

It is an immutable principle accepted by all Muslims, that Allah has reserved to Him alone the prerogative to guide men in the path of truth. To do this, Allah has always elevated, in various times and places, individuals to whom He has invested the robe of honour to be His representatives to men. It is through these individuals with noble and purified souls that Allah reveals to men the path He has chosen for them. According to the Qur’anic language, these representatives of Allah are called Khalifatullah / Khulafatullah (Caliphs of Allah).

The Khalifatullah is not created, nor voted and set up by man. On the contrary, he derives his origin from a divine decree. Indeed God declares in the Holy Qur’an:

Allah had promised to those among you who believe and do good works that He will surely make them Successors in the earth, as He made Successors from among those who were before them; and that He will surely establish for them their religion which He has chosen for them; and that He will surely give them in exchange security and peace after their fear: They will worship Me, and they will not associate anything with Me. Then whoso is ungrateful after that, they will be the rebellious.” (An-Nur 24: 56).

The Holy Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) prophesied about the Khalifatullah. The various historical phases that Islam shall experience have been predicted by the Holy Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) in the following tradition:

Prophethood shall remain amongst you for as long as Allah wills. He will then cause it to end. Then a Khilafat will be established in the precepts of Prophethood which will last for as long as Allah wills. He will then cause it to end. Oppressive king-hood will follow [which will inflict great pain and misery on its subjects]. Its rule will last for as long as Allah wills. He will then cause it to end. After this, tyrannical monarchies will follow. Their rule will last for as long as Allah wills. Allah will then cause it to end. Khilafat (Khalifatullah) will then be re-established in the precepts of Prophethood…” (Musnad Ahmad).

Did Mirza Masroor Ahmad emerge as a Khalifatullah based on the precepts of the prophets or did he emerged as a caliph of a Messiah, furthermore elected by men? If he declares himself Caliph of God and being invested with the Holy Spirit (Ruh’il Quddus), then he must prove it with divine revelations that he has received since the year 2003 and until now, and he must proclaim openly that Allah has chosen him as the Khalifatullah (Caliph elected by Allah) which is based on the precepts of the prophets.

The 'New' Social Boycott Policy of the Caliph

Just recently, more specifically last Friday, 27 July 2018, after the Friday prayer, an announcement coming from him was made at the level of the Jamaat Ahmadiyya in Mauritius which is unfounded and categorically and directly against the Islamic teachings - the teachings of the Holy Prophet Hazrat Muhammad (pbuh) and those of the Promised Messiah Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad (as); a contradictory announcement filled with hatred against those who have recognized the Divine Manifestation, and who were subsequently expelled from the Nizam-e-Jamaat (circle / administrative system of the Ahmadiyya Movement) following their support for the truth that comes from God and those who have recognized His Messenger. He made the following statement (from Creole translation):

Among the children of those who have been expelled from the Jamaat, those who want to join and be part of the Jamaat, contact must be maintained with them and they must be allowed to return to the Jamaat. Do not discourage them. We need to take care of the next generation of these people. You need to take appropriate actions regarding children who want to join the Jamaat and ask for forgiveness.”

This instruction is only for children, not for the seniors (adults). Among these children, those who are in touch and want to come to the Jamaat, it has been said that we must keep contact with them and we must allow them to return to the Jamaat. There were no instructions regarding other people who were expelled from the Jamaat. If there is any point of discussion with someone, then each of their case will be addressed differently. The instruction was also given that a committee should be established which includes the Missionary-in-Charge, the Sadr of Khuddam, the Sadr of Ansar, the Secretary of Tarbiyyat and the Secretary of Ummur Amma. This committee must submit its report to Amir Saheb. Amir Saheb will later send this report with his comments to the Markaz (headquarters).”

Only the Missionary-in-Charge has the right to personally keep in touch with the expellees of the Jamaat to persuade and reform them. It is not the duty of the Sadr of Khuddam or any other officer to keep in touch with them.”

If a Jamaat officer participates in a function where someone who has been expelled from the Jamaat has been invited, then that officer must immediately leave that place.”

Expellees from the Jamaat may be allowed to come to the mosque provided they do not create disorder. If there is a Nikah announcement after the prayer and these people stay in the mosque to listen to the announcement, then there is no problem to let them be present. But if someone specifically invites these people in his functions (programmes) and meetings, then this is a bad practice for which you have to reprimand the members of the Jamaat who invited these people.”

The Family Boycott policy: Unfair, unjust and anti-Islamic

Caliph Mirza Masroor Ahmad plays with children’s feelings and emotions. Does he not know that according to Islam, the first education of the child begins with his parents? He plays with the feelings of the children so that these children begin to develop hatred in the heart for their parents who have recognized the Divine Manifestation. And everywhere he displays the motto: Love for All, Hatred for None. What hypocrisy! In truth he sows terror, fear in the hearts of men and gives instructions to his officers to establish the boycott.

Boycotts in families, in family functions where a sister does not have the right to invite her brother and vice versa. Is this what the Holy Qur’an taught us? To break family ties? A so-called spiritual leader like Mirza Masroor Ahmad with all his arrogance and authority (he and his Amirs and their Managing Committee etc.), sow hatred within families and create divisions and make one another become enemies. Is this the Dawa of Mirza Masroor Ahmad and his surroundings? To divide families only because some of the members of the Jamaat Ahmadiyya have recognized and accepted the Divine Manifestation and believed in this humble servant and Caliph of Allah? On the basis of revelation alone, are people expelled from the Jamaat of the Promised Messiah (as)? 

The others who became the great enemies of Ahmadiyyat and renounced the Promised Messiah (as) and came out of the Jamaat with several criticisms against Hazrat Massih Ma’ud (as) and against what the Messiah wrote and said; so far, no announcement has been made to announce the expulsion of those people who have done much harm to the Jamaat of the Promised Messiah Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad (as). And these people are always welcome in all the functions of Ahmadis, family functions and there is no boycott applied to them, why? Where is justice in all this? 

The bottom line is that faith and justice go together. Read the following verses from the Holy Qur’an where Allah says: 

“O you who have believed, be persistently standing firm in justice, witnesses for Allah, even if it be against yourselves or parents and relatives. Whether one is rich or poor, Allah is more worthy of both. So follow not [personal] inclination, lest you not be just. And if you distort [your testimony] or refuse [to give it], then indeed Allah is ever, with what you do, Acquainted. O you who have believed, believe in Allah and His Messenger and the Book that He sent down upon His Messenger and the Scripture which He sent down before. And whoever disbelieves in Allah, His angels, His books, His messengers, and the Last Day has certainly gone far astray.” (An-Nisa 4: 136-137).

Justice is the attribute of Allah and standing firm for justice is to be a witness of Allah even if it is to the detriment of our own interests or those of our loved ones. Islamic justice is not like that of other justices of human conception. It seeks the deepest motives because we have to act as in the presence of Allah Who knows everything about our acts and motives.

The fact that Jamaat Ahmadiyya [i.e. the spiritually corrupted people within the Jamaat Ahmadiyya] turned their backs on divine revelation - and they ridiculed these revelations as “so-called revelations” - and the Divine Manifestation, the majority of Ahmadis have lost all the blessings of God because they still believe in dynasties, monarchies, corrupt tyrants. For Allah, He raises whoever He wants. For Him, no dynasty! He chooses whoever He wants.

Now with the condescending arrogance of Caliph Mirza Masroor Ahmad and his stupid instructions, as well as the emotional blackmail that he and his officers are doing to scare the Ahmadi Muslims so they do not accept the Divine Manifestation and boycott and make difficulties for those who have already recognised and accepted the Divine Manifestation, then I warn him, if he continues to manifest himself like this, taking himself as a god on earth to spread hate in the hearts of the people and to break [and reduce to dust] the divine teachings then the divine punishment on him shall be terrible. If he continues to give such instructions to separate the families only because they have recognized the Manifestation and the advent of a Messenger and Caliph of Allah in this century, then he must expect the worst in his physical, moral and spiritual condition.

The dynasty caliph has caused some of the most damaging consequences for Ahmadis in Mauritius and around the world. Where we look, the once spirit of Islamic brotherhood in the Jamaat Ahmadiyya has disappeared and it is consequently disorganization, indiscipline that reigns. O Ahmadi Muslims, disorganized and helpless, you have become blind to others. You approve of a system that neither the Holy Prophet (pbuh) nor the Promised Messiah (as) has approved. On the contrary, I see you today as slaves of your material desires and you are fooled by a false guidance that comes from a caliph who in the end knows nothing about Islam. You see yourselves scattered, separated from your families, and he and his allies are basking in their luxuries and powers, leaving you in your distress.

O caliph Mirza Masroor Ahmad, you and your acolytes have reduced the teachings of Islam to dust. You consider yourselves superior to Allah and His elected Messenger and you oppose us; and certainly the consequence of the proud, those who challenge Allah will be harmful. Why do you obstruct the will of Allah? Why do you react like imbeciles at the time of the prophets of Allah as mentioned in the sacred books? 

Social Boycott is against the teachings of Qur'an

Read the Holy Qur’an where even the son of Prophet Nuh (as) did not have faith in his father but despite this, Nuh (as) did not reject his son in the great flood before it engulfed everything in its path [exception made for Nuh (as) and the believers]... Did the Holy Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) move away from his paternal uncle Abu Talib despite the fact that he did not believe in the unicity of Allah and the mission of his nephew as Messenger of Allah? Did Hazrat Muhammad (pbuh) boycott his paternal uncle? Did Prophet Ibrahim (as) boycott his father who was an idol-carver? On the contrary, he had invited his father to Allah. The sons of the Promised Messiah (from his first marriage) did not believe in him (during his lifetime), had he expelled and boycotted them? Similarly, there are so many arguments on this subject according to the Holy Qur’an. So, have the fear of Allah and reform yourselves before it is too late.

You do not believe, don’t you? So why force people to not believe too? Why do you take the place of Ibliss who prevents people from taking the path of God? Why are you imbued with yourselves and why do you refuse to submit to the will of Allah? Are you afraid of losing your authority and your wealth and your family and all the prestige that comes with the election of a man-elected caliph?

God knows how much criticism there is about the writings of the Promised Messiah (as) and there are several books that the Jamaat Ahmadiyya has not yet translated. Why not respond to these criticisms and translate the books of the Promised Messiah (as) instead of sowing the seeds of hatred and eating people’s flesh with appetite?

Allah has created human beings so that they may disperse throughout the universe to live in peace, in harmony, in safety, and to enjoy all that He has put at their disposal, such as, nature, the sky, the earth, among many other things. Allah (swt) has sent Muhammad (pbuh) as the Seal of the Prophets to spread Islam with the revelation of the Holy Qur’an in focus.

The arrogance of Mirza Masroor Ahmad and his surroundings is destructive; not only do they aim to destroy everything in their path, but in truth they only harm their own souls. Arrogance is a vice, a defect, a sin, a mental failure. Arrogance is a very blameworthy characteristic. Arrogance is a vice of human nature where the heart of man is rusted with sins.

The arrogant, one way or another develops other bad manners such as boasting, pride, dictatorship, a haughty style vis-à-vis others. He mostly forgets that through this arrogance, he moves away from beautiful qualities. This arrogance – which is pride – and this pride has various external manifestations which reveal its presence. Among these is the love, the desire to be at the head of people and to exhibit a superior status. The proud or the arrogant is happy to be always at the head of the Jamaat with his bodyguards etc.

The arrogant, the proud, the boastful, the dictator, the hoarder does not hesitate to humiliate the little ones, the poor, the help seekers who come to him. With instructions resembling more to Hitler’s, no right to sit down, no familiarity in appellations, no sensitivity! Simply a high degree of disdain displayed for these weak, poor, helpless, those who are not endowed with riches.

The fourth caliph of the Ahmadiyya Movement and his mullahs and Amirs - and now supported by the fifth caliph and his acolytes - called me mad and sick and they ridiculed and described the revelations I receive from Allah as “so-called revelations”. They accused me of lying about God, of preaching false doctrines, and they carried out a false campaign against me and my disciples and the Divine Manifestation as a whole to create hatred in the hearts of Ahmadis and the families of those who have believed in the Divine Manifestation of this present era.

They display to the world (as an eye-wash) “Love for All, Hatred for None” but only they slander a Caliph of God and divine revelations, they ridicule the teachings of the Holy Qur’an and the prophecies of the Holy Prophet Hazrat Muhammad (pbuh), as well as the writings and teachings of the Promised Messiah Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad (as). They apply boycott and give audience to hypocrites and perverts (like for a Zalim during Jalsa in the year 2003-2004) to ridicule the Divine Manifestation of this century and this humble servant and caliph of Allah. They even refuse to pay their workers, and an example of this is my own case when they refused to pay me my salary and lump sum (for all the years I worked for the Jamaat – for which they hired me). They have gone beyond all limits and this campaign of theirs has passed the point of no return.

Faced with all these pressures, we showed exemplary patience and we suffered everything only for the cause of Allah. All the efforts we have made to make them understand things in a civilized way have proved futile. I had clearly warned them of the consequences of this false and un-Islamic campaign. 

As Khalifatullah, and the International Spiritual Leader of the Jamaat Ul Sahih Al Islam, I have decided to launch a challenge to all those who consciously or unconsciously lend themselves to such a campaign, to compete with my Jamaat Ul Sahih Al Islam and I thus bring this matter before the Court of God so that He punishes in an exemplary way those who are guilty in His eyes. And that the seekers of truths and the truly sincere may have the opportunity to distinguish between the true and the false in the light of what God will decide. Insha-Allah.

To conclude my brothers and sisters! The announcement made by the mullahs and their Amirs under the instruction of their caliph with all their arrogance and jealousy is stupid, wobbly, contradictory and unfounded. For God’s sake, think about the spiritual future of your children. Besides, you have examples in front of you with the so-called dedicated children (Waqf-e-Naw). A very long list of their misdeeds and characters can be drawn up. These children are lost children with their bad company and dubious transactions on their backs. But even though they are lost physically, morally and spiritually, nothing is done to make them see their mistake and fix it for a better tomorrow. Very harsh actions are taken against people who recognize the manifestations, signs and the Messenger of Allah, but as for those who actually take the path of destruction, they are protected because their families are mostly high-placed people of the Jamaat (Jamaat Ahmadiyya) and their families are still in the Jamaat. For them, no sanctions, no boycott!

Think profoundly on the future of children

So, O you seekers of truth, those who really love Allah and Islam, think about the spiritual future of your children. Teach them the true teachings of Islam, not the teachings that go against what Islam preaches. Avoid them from being trampled by mundane things, and drugs and alcoholic beverages, cigarettes, games of chance and so on.

Give them real guidance, encouraging them to recognize the Divine Manifestation of this century. Encourage them to become the beloved ones of Allah. Remember, all the prophets and even the Promised Messiah gave you the same advice. In truth I am a sincere advisor to you. In this century, Allah has sent you guidance under the banner of Islam, Sahih al Islam. Come to the divine light and encourage your children to do the same, so that each future descendant will be provided with a light to illuminate the world to its end. At that moment, faith and sincerity revived in them will give an excellent result. A light breeze will flare up spiritual sparks within them and the world will be illuminated with divine blessings through these young people.

Our biggest problem today is educating our young people and all those who are born Muslims in this great religion of Islam. It is our duty to protect them from the unhealthy worm of time and poisoned material influence. You have to imbibe a spiritual life in them. It is in this life that we want to make our young people walk today. We must make the young understand well that we must have the fear of Allah and not the fear of creatures or the caliph. One must pray to one God, not to make the caliph (whether elected by Allah or man) become your idol.

It is unfortunate to hear an Amir from Jamaat Ahmadiyya in Mauritius, Mr. Moussa Taujoo say on Youtube on the occasion of the Eid-ul-Fitr 2017 that all Ahmadis must attach themselves with the caliph, that the caliph must be in every house and every heart. Where to place Allah then? It is unfortunate that little by little these kinds of people have erased Allah from their existence and they encourage others to do the same. The pictures of the elected caliph of man are everywhere nowadays in houses and streets. It is very serious what they do. Under the pretext of love and peace they are mutilating the divine teachings. How low they have stooped because they took the same steps of those who once calumniated the prophets and the Promised Messiah of the past century.

May Allah grant His favours and blessings to our Sahih al Islam children and to our future descendants and prevent us from going towards decadence. May He give us the strength to overcome the barriers that obstruct our path so that we can reach the ultimate goal. For the Jamaat Ul Sahih Al Islam, our salvation is in the will of God. Ameen! Summa Ameen, Ya Rabbul Aalameen.
