Qur'an and Imam Azim (atba)

Imam-Jamaat Ul Sahih Al Islam Hazrat Khalifatullah Munir Ahmad Azim (atba) of Mauritius is a servant of God in our turbulent times. Deeply attached to the faith of ISLAM from his early childhood, Hazrat Azim (atba) devoted himself to a life of spiritual contemplation and preaching, helping people appreciate the beauty and merits of the correct and straight path in life to tread on. Even as he guided hundreds of people in different nations in the Indian Ocean Island States to embrace Islam through his preaching efforts in the 1990's,  as he turned 40 years of age in the year 2000-01 Allah (swt) took him under the wing of His Mercy, giving him scores of spiritual titles, and inspired him with special Messages for the attention of all humanity. Alhamdulillah,  the Divine Mission of Imam Azim (atba) now enters its glorious twentieth year of existence, Summa Alhamdulillah.   

When a servant of God appears on the spiritual horizon and begins his sublime preaching, it is only natural that the Holy Qur'an will emit a glorious light of its pristine teachings in support of such Divinely-inspired claims. Indeed, the whole Qur'an will testify to the veracity of the Elects of God, for both the 'word' of God- Qur'an- and the 'act' of God- raising of His representatives- cannot be incompatible. A recent article, prepared and published by Mukarram Amir Jamaluddin Raother Saheb of the  Jamaat Ul Sahih Al Islam- South Kerala explains 10 verses of the Holy Qur'an that provides evidences in favour of the spiritual claims of Hazrat Khalifatullah Munir A. Azim (atba). 

Read the Article Below: 

Look at the spiritual titles given by Allah (swt) to Imam Azim (atba): 

Amir'ul Mu'mineen (19 January 2003); Hazrat (25 July 2003); Muhyi-ud-Din (06-07 December 2003); Musleh Maoud (20 February 2004); Khalifatullah (26-27 May 2008); Imam-e-Inquilaab (26-27 May 2008); Massih Maoud (10 September 2010); Mujaddid (10 September 2010); Rasulullah (October 2010); Nabiullah (October 2010). 

Evidences in favour of the Claims from the Holy Qur'an: 

1.  And remember the time when Allah took a covenant from the people through the Prophets, saying: ‘Whatever I give you of the Book and Wisdom and then there comes to you a Messenger, fulfilling that which is with you, you shall believe in him and help him.’ And He said: ‘Do you agree, and do you accept the responsibility which I lay upon you in this matter?’ They said, ‘We agree;’ He said, ‘Then bear witness, and I am with you among the witnesses.’ [3:82]

The appointment of Hazrat Saheb (atba) in the 15th century of Islam as the Khalifatullah (Vicegerent of Allah) is in perfect accordance with the aforesaid covenant of God mentioned in the Qur'an, the Holy Book in our hands. He is a recipient of Divine revelations since the year 2000, and it continues to this day, Alhamdulillahi Kazeera. If we believe in the Holy verse of the Qur'an, then, how can we reject his spiritual claims? 

2. And remember when We took from the Prophets their covenant, and from you, and from Noah, and Abraham, and Moses, and Jesus, son of Mary, and We indeed took from them a solemn covenant[33:8]

Just as Allah (swt) took a covenant from earlier peoples through their prophets, it is crystal clear from the verse that the same covenant was taken from Hazrat Muhammad Mustafa (sa) as well. Based on the Covenant, Allah's representatives have appeared in every century. And there are no changes or deviation in Sunnat Allah (God's Practice). Testifying to the veracity of the Verse, as per the great covenant between Allah (swt) and Muhammad Mustafa (sa); Allah (swt) has raised His messenger in this era as well; this holy Verse, we submit, is a strong evidence in support of the veracity of the messenger. 

3. Verily, We Ourself have sent down this Exhortation, and most surely We will be its Guardian. [15:10]

Allah (swt) is the supreme custodian of the Holy Qur'an. Even in our every day life, we know that it is for the House-owner to decide on when to give a fresh coat of paint or doing a 'white-wash' for the House. All responsibilities and decisions in this connection are made by the owner in his prerogative. Nobody can possibly raise any issue or have any dispute over the matter. Here, in the present Verse, it is clearly claimed by Allah (swt) that the Holy Book of Exhortation is sent/revealed by him, and it has been made clear that He will be its Guardian, with full protective responsibility to preserve and maintain it. Over the last 14 centuries, the Qur'an has been preserved in letter and spirit. The preservation of the Qur'an as the eternal guide for humankind is a manifestation of the ultimate kindness of the All-Merciful. Almighty God is continuing the same in the present era as well. After electing His representative, through mystical visions (Kashfu), Allah (swt) taught the commentary of the Qur'an to His messenger, and the same has been written as Al Azim Tafsir-ul-Qur'an. The aforesaid Verse of the Qur'an is being submitted here as the third evidence for the veracity of the Divine Elect: 'Verily, We Ourself have sent down this Exhortation, and most surely We will be its Guardian'.   

4. Allah has 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.

It is a Promise of Allah that He will raise His Khulafa (representatives) among those who believe and do good deeds. This Promise of Allah has been fulfilled in every era- all fourteen centuries have witnessed the appearance of Divine Elects. By raising His representative in the fifteenth century of Islam also, God's words/enduring promises are being fulfilled, once again. As per the promise in the Verse, Hazrat Saheb (atba) is the Khalifatullah of the 15th century of Islam.  The Qur'anic verse is evidence of the claim that a Khalifatullah appears in every era, and that the Divine Promise has found its fulfillment in this era in Imam Azim (atba)

5. And among others from among them who have not yet joined them. He is the Mighty, the Wise. [62:4]

In every era, people change. In such circumstances, Allah raises His representatives. By raising His representative in this era, Allah (swt) has fulfilled the aforesaid verse. The 'Ayat' was originally fulfilled through Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad (as) of Qadian, the Promised Messiah and Imam Al Mahdi of the Later Days. As the spiritual son of the Promised Messiah (as) in the new century, and considering that all Divine representatives in every era from now on is going to be mirror-images of the Messiah (as), the Verse stands fulfilled, once again. Hence, the present Verse is also an evidence of the claim concerning the advent of Imam Azim (atba). 

6. And whoso obeys Allah and this Messenger of His shall be among those on whom Allah has bestowed His blessings, namely, the Prophets, the Truthful, the Martyrs, and the Righteous. And excellent companions are these.[4:70]

Among those who believe in Allah, and obey the Holy Prophet (sa) in every era, the representatives of Allah will appear among them. Hence, from among the people in every generation, believers will have the chance to join their righteous and blessed ancestors: 'the Prophets, the Truthful, the Martyrs, and the Righteous'. Select individuals from among the believers are raised by Allah (swt) as His representatives to teach Deen in every era. Hence, the Verse also testifies that Imam Azim (atba) is sent in this era by Allah (swt).      

7. And if he had forged and attributed any sayings to Us, [69:45]

We would surely have seized him by the right hand,[69:46]

And then surely We would have severed his life-artery, [69:47] 

And not one of you could have held Us off from him. [69:48]

These Verses in the Holy Qur'an point to the code of punishment applicable to those who make false claims concerning God's revelations: 'surely We would have severed his life-artery' !

The aforesaid Verses are a great testimonial to the essential truth and veracity of the spiritual claims of this Divine servant. For two decades now, Imam Azim (atba) is a recipient of Divine revelations. From the year 2000 onwards, Allah (swt) has conversed with Hazrat Saheb (atba). Even in 2020, the Divine revelations continue to pour forth...Are you saying that without getting any Wahyu from Allah (swt), he is lying and making false claims?! Is God not-knowing this all?!! Can't you see it all and ponder over these facts? For people who don't use their faculty of reasoning and reflection, what is the point of giving them evidence after evidence?
