The Believing Women of the Divine Manifestation

Dear Suruj Makin (i.e. the Strong and Firm Lamps of the Jamaat Ul Sahih Al Islam), Assalamoualaikum Warahmatullah Wabarakaatuhu.

Like your God-given name indicates, you are such ladies who need always show yourselves strong and firm in faith and also spread this firmness of faith around you, showing the world the beauty of Islam, the true faith.

It is now one year that the light of the Divine Manifestation has reached your good souls and Allah enabled you to accept His signs and Messenger. And more recently, by the immense grace of Allah, many of you have integrated the Jamaat, through various signs from Allah. Allah opened your hearts to accept this New Age’s Divine Manifestation. Now, a new avenue (i.e. path) has been opened for you to pave your way in all serenity (i.e. with peacefulness and firmness in faith) towards Allah and the accomplishments of your duties to Allah.

Always remember that you, the women of the Divine Manifestation are the foundation of tomorrow’s nation. Each one of you is important to the Jamaat of Allah and to ISLAM as a whole. Through your obedience, gentleness, devotion, knowledge and sacrifice, you can reach to the summit of faith. Be it in good times and in times of trials you need always be steadfast (i.e. patient) and keep your trust and faith in Allah and His Khalifatullah of this era ever firm.

Remember, your actions are responsible for the Good and the Bad in the world. Your thoughts are responsible for your actions. Your minds are responsible for your thoughts. So, if you nurture good thoughts in your mind, and transcribe (i.e. put) these good thoughts and intentions into practice, then Islam shall progress in leaps and bounds, going from success to success.

As creatures and servants of Allah you have certain duties towards your homes, your parents and husbands and children, as well as to the religion of Allah. Fortunate are those women who take care of their parents and husbands in the best way possible, and grow their children with the right teachings and upbringing as ordained in Islam by Allah and His Prophet Hazrat Muhammad (pbuh).

Allah says in the Holy Quran: Indeed, the Muslim men and Muslim women, the believing men and believing women, the obedient men and obedient women, the truthful men and truthful women, the patient men and patient women, the humble men and humble women, the charitable men and charitable women, the fasting men and fasting women, the men who guard their private parts and the women who do so, and the men who remember Allah often and the women who do so - for them Allah has prepared forgiveness and a great reward.” (Surah Al-Ahzab, 33: 36).

Therefore, if you are true to your duties which Allah has ordained for you in this life, then everything will be all right. Humankind, to be more precise, tomorrow’s generation shall bring prosperity to ISLAM and HUMANITY. Be a good representation of Islam in your homes, amidst family members, your neighbourhood and within the Jamaat and society at large, and Insha-Allah, work towards perfecting it by your good deeds and sacrifices in the way of Allah.

Spend of what Allah has given you in His path also. Spend on your parents, husbands and children and do not forget to spend for the cause of Allah also, for the Jamaat of Allah, for the progress of Islam throughout India and the world. Your sacrifices in the path of Allah is essential (very important). Islam needs your sacrifices for tomorrow’s prosperity. Spend, even if it is as little as one rupee; save every rupee or as much as you can afford so that tomorrow you may have a large sum to spend for the cause of Allah, whenever Allah and His Khalifatullah (atba) call you for financial sacrifice.

Remember, these sacrifices is not to enrich us as individuals, but to enrich us as a Jamaat, as a united body of Islam with the common goal for establishing the truth of Allah and inviting people towards Allah, towards Tawhid (the Unity of Allah).

Today you may be few, but tomorrow, you shall see a large crowd of believers, men, women and children come forward to embrace the Divine Truth. You shall be like the guiding teachers for them, showing them the right way. But before that time comes, you should refine yourselves in Islam. There is much good in you, and you should make this goodness shine through your good deeds, and help in the Divine Cause.

May Allah accept your efforts in His path. May Allah bless you, and help you, especially all of you who are able to do translation works, to devote your time for this great work for the benefit of seekers of truth in India and around the world. May Allah always accept you as sincere and true to His cause, and help you in your everyday lives and enable you to be of great service to Islam, Jamaat Ul Sahih Al Islam, Insha-Allah, Ameen.

Thank you for your kind attention. 
Assalamoualaikum Warahmatullah Wabarakaatuhu.
