Becoming ‘Maryam’, Bearing ‘Isa’


Our body is like Mary.
Each of us has a Jesus inside.
If a pain and yearning shows up inside us,
the Jesus of our soul is born.
If there is no pain, no yearning,
the Jesus of our soul will return to its origin from
the same secret passageway he came from…
If there is no pain, no yearning,
we will remain deprived
not benefiting from that Jesus of the soul.

-Hadhrat Maulana Jalaluddin Rumi (ra) in Mathnawi---Translated by Omid Safi, in Radical Love: Teachings from the Islamic Mystical Tradition (Yale, 2018).

A true believer becomes like ‘Maryam’ and is infused with the Holy Spirit

In Surah Al Tahrim, we read: 

“And Allah next compares the believers to Maryam, the daughter of Imran, she took care to guard her chastity, so we breathed into him (the believer who is exemplified here) Our inspiration while she declared her faith in the revelations of her Lord and His scriptures and she became of the devoted ones to prayers and obedient to Him”- (Surah Al Tahrim, HQ, 66: 13)

In this Qur’anic verse, Maryam is set as an example for righteous servants of Allah. Like Maryam, true believers- though they are not Prophets of Allah- can also be bestowed with Divine revelations. Such a servant is like Maryam and then Allah will infuse His Ruh in him and he will become the like of Jesus, a servant of God and recipient of His Revelations. According to Hazrat Khalifatul Massih Awwal Allama Hakkim Nuruddin (ra), “the verse clearly informs us that in the Ummah of the Holy Prophet (pbuh), there will be people- both men and women- like Maryam, who will guard their chastity, be devoted to prayers, declare faith in the Scripture and because of being an obedient servant of Allah will receive the blessings of Divine Revelations. This promise has been given in the very first chapter of al-Fatihah in the words, “Show us the path of those whom you bestowed your Mercy”.

Khalifatullah (atba) Performs 'Umrah'

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.
