The Larger Meaning of 'Kalima'

On the occasion of the 9th Jalsa Salana of the Jamaat Ul Sahih Al Islam in Kerala (India) at the historic Noor'ul Islam Masjid, Mathra (South Kerala) on 22-23 December 2019, Imam-e-Jamaat Hadhrat Khalifatullah Munir Ahmad Azim (atba) of Mauritius addressed the gathering of spiritual seekers, elucidating on the purpose of faith. True faith in, and worship of, the Lord Almighty, the Unique creator and sustainer of the universe, requires more than mere verbal declarations. When the heart truly recognizes the Majesty and All-encompassing Power of the Lord over all affairs, it becomes capable of ignoring all selfish desires  and worldly diversions. Such a heart  inspires righteous action, carrying out tasks in service of our common humanity. Hence, true belief in 'Tawheed' is a great blessing: it removes inner vices and transforms our negative emotions, sorrows and worries; thereby creating a veritable state of paradise on earth for the believer, notes Hadhrat Khalifatullah (atba) in the special message. 

Read the Text of the Sermon Below:        

'My dearest disciples,
Assalamoualaikum Warahmatullah Wabarakaatuhu.

It gives me great pleasure to know that the Kerala Jamaat is holding its Jalsa Salana on the 22nd & 23rd December 2019. Masha-Allah. May Allah (swt) bless your efforts and reward you immensely in this life and the hereafter for all your sacrifices and works for the cause of Allah. I pray to Allah (swt) that this Jalsa Salana may prove to be a step forward towards realizing the aims and objects for which the Jamaat Ul Sahih Al Islam has been founded. Like I keep saying, the banner of Islam has to be raised high; higher than all other banners, and the message of the Holy Quran has to be conveyed to every human being, of every colour, race and culture, etc. We are witnessing a dark era wherein there is a sense of frustration all round. Despite all worldly comforts there is unrest and uneasiness in every heart. This is because people have abandoned the worship of the One True God.

Alhamdulillah, in this darkened era, Allah has manifested His light of guidance through the advent of His Chosen One, i.e. this humble self, the Khalifatullah (Caliph of Allah). I have often made it clear that you should not be happy just with the fact that you are called Muslims and that you believe in the Shahada Laa Ilaaha Illallah, i.e. There is no god but Allah. Those who read the Holy Quran know well that God Almighty is not pleased with mere verbal statements nor does mere talk develop any inner goodness in a person. Unless the nature of one’s deeds and actions undergoes correction, nothing can be achieved.

Respect Women and Their Rights

By the grace of Allah, I thus continue my Friday Sermon on the status of the Womenfolk in Islam.

(3) A Mother's Dignity

As mothers, the status of women has been raised by Islam to such an extent that nothing higher is conceivable. As the last law-bearing religion, Islam has provided for the every right and need of the female human species, and perfected them so that these teachings represent the best of teachings for generations up till the Day of Judgement. 

The Holy Quran says:  "Your Lord has decreed that you worship none but Him, and that you be kind to (your) parents. Whether one or both of them attain old age in your life, do not say to them a word of contempt, nor repel them, but address them in terms of honour. And, out of kindness, lower to them the wing of humility, and say: “My Lord! Bestow on them Your Mercy even as they cherished me in childhood.” (17: 24-25)

It is reported by Hazrat Abu Huraira (ra) that when the Holy Prophet (pbuh) was questioned by a disciple as to who after God and His Messenger (pbuh) deserve his fine treatment, the Prophet said: “Your mother.” 

He then asked, “Who next?” The Messenger of Allah (pbuh) replied: “Your mother.” 

He asked again: “Who next?” He (pbuh) said again, “Your mother.” The man put the question for the fourth time and it was only then that the Holy Prophet (pbuh) said: “Your father.” (Bukhari)

This Hadith shows the paramount importance which the mother enjoys in the eyes of Allah and in the life of his children and family. She is deserving of much more respect and care, three times more than the father.

June 2014: Dawa Highlights

Day One
Alhamdulillah, upon reaching Reunion Island, the Khalifatullah(atba) was warmly welcomed by the Vice-President of the Jamaat.

Day Two

Huzur(atba) and some of our members spent the day in Dawa at Sainte Clotilde. In the course of the Dawa expedition, he encountered a Mourid Imam with whom he got a clash on the matter of religion. Later on, he met with a Muslim (a Shiite Mullah) at Moufia and there itself was held a question and answers session on the death of Jesus Christ(as), to which many people assisted. The Khalifatullah(atba) exposed to him several verses of the Holy Quran and other proofs from the Hadiths but despite all this, the Mullah refused to acknowledge the truth exposed by the Holy Quran on the subject. He even sought to deviate the people who were witnessing the debate from the true viewpoint of the Holy Quran which the Khalifatullah(atba) sought to make apparent.

Greetings for Narendra Modi

In the course of his Friday sermon of 23 May 2014 ~ (23 Rajab 1435 Hijri) the Khalifatullah Hadhrat Munir Ahmad Azim Sahib (atba) of Mauritius took note of, and spoke briefly on, the recently concluded general elections in India and the consequent political changes unfolding in the country. The dismal fortunes of the long ruling Nehru-Gandhi political dynasty in the elections is in line with the larger global trend of popular anger against abuse of power and the cancer of corruption eating into the vitals of the polity and impacting on people's everyday lives. The extraordinary popular mandate for the leadership of Narendra Mody and his Bharatiya Janata Party, the right-wing, Hindu party in the country, presents him with an uncommon opportunity to serve the nation and the world. The Khalifatullah (atba) and the Jamaat Ul Sahih Al Islam International, including the national branches of the Jamaat in India, wish all success for Narendra Modi in his great responsibility as the Prime Minister-elect of India.

Read the Extracts from the Friday Sermon:

Before ending, I would like to say some words on the recent parliamentary elections in India which have been those of all records. ( Inset: A polling officer (R) helps a woman to cast her vote at a polling station in Majuli, a large river island in the Brahmaputra river, Jorhat district, in the northeastern Indian state of Assam April 7, 2014. (REUTERS/Adnan Abidi). Spread over a period of Five weeks, the world's largest general elections  took place in India during April-May 2014, with over 600 million citizens eventually exercising their franchise). 

The vote count gave its verdict and the Hindu Nationalist Party of Narendra Modi celebrated a crushing victory while the Congress party was severely beaten. The Hindu Nationalist Party of Narendra Modi is promising a “new era” based on the boosting of the economy after ten years of having the Congress Party in power. This triumph of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) reshapes the Indian political landscape, transforming the Hindu Nationalist Party in national political power at the expense of the Congress Party of Gandhi-Nehru dynasty which has been reduced to the bare; this being a hard blow to such a Party which was used to leading the country. But the BJP leader is viewed with suspicion by the Muslim minority since the 2002 riots in Gujarat.

Opposed to the BJP, the Congress party comes out of these elections worn out after ten years of power, scandals, corruption and they have been punished (by the people) for their repeated incapability to revive growth and curb inflation. It has quickly recognized its defeat and this could be the most scathing one in its history. The Gandhi-Nehru dynasty in India faces a fight for survival after an electoral drubbing at the hands of the opposition leader Narendra Modi.

In this century many dynasties are disappearing, Insha-Allah, be it at political level as well as at religious (spiritual) level (especially those who take themselves as the heirs of the religious power, as if they are glued to their seats of power, and they think nobody can get them out from there. They forgot that there is a Creator of the universe who holds absolute power. He does what He wills and He replaces what (or whomever) He wants.

A Dawa Mission in Dubai and Abu Dhabi

As part of his recent transnational Dawa Mission, the Khalifatullah Hadhrat Munir Ahmad Azim Sahib (atba) of Mauritius journeyed across the Indian Ocean to the island-states of Sri Lanka and Maldives in South Asia, and also to the coastal state of United Arab Emirates (UAE) in the Persian Gulf, in April-May 2014. As we have already documented Hadhrat Sahib’s visit to Sri Lanka and also the historic Friday Sermon in the Maldives delivered during this period, the present report focuses on the visit to Dubai and Abu Dhabi.  (To read the previous articles in the series, click here: 12).

After setting his feet on the UAE lands, Hadhrat Sahib (atba) started the Dawa mission with the immigrant workers in the country- people of the Pakistani and Indian origin- Kerala, Kashmir, Peshawar and also of Bangladesh origin and the other parts of the world are employed in large numbers in the city-states of UAE.

The most fantastic events which happened in both the Arab countries-Dubai and Abu Dhabi- are that the Arabs listened with great attention to the message of the advent of a Khalifatullah in this era, someone who has come from Allah to revive Islam in its authenticity, to continue the great mission of our beloved prophet Muhammad (sa).

Khalifatullah visits Sri Lanka

Recently, in April-May 2014, the Khalifatullah Hadhrat Munir Ahmad Azim Sahib (atba) of Mauritius undertook an International Dawah Mission to three different countries – Sri Lanka, Maldives and the United Arab Emirates (Dubai & Abu Dhabi). At one level, the visit and preaching was part of the organizational work of the Jamaat Ul Sahih Al Islam International, to meet with the well-wishers and new disciples, to propagate the message of the Divine Mission and also to procedurally register and enlist the Jamaat functions on a legal and institutional basis in these respective countries. (Inset: the Sacred Fig tree in Anuradhapura, Sri Lanka. It is said to be a sapling from the original Bodhi tree under which the historical Buddha became enlightened. It was planted in 288 BC, and is the oldest living human-planted tree in the world with a known planting date.)

At another level, Hadhrat Sahib (atba), as the Divine servant of our times, was redeeming the pious wish and great hope of the Promised Massih Hadhrat Ahmad (as) to take the message of Islam to the corners of the world, especially to the peoples and nations that follow beliefs other than Islam, and also to renew the Muslims who, in their own individual and social journeys of life, have fallen away from the essence of the spirit and richness of the religion of Allah.   

In a Speech made at Colombo, Sri Lanka on Tuesday, 29 April 2014, the Khalifatullah (atba) spoke about the sublime and extraordinary legacy of the Holy Prophet of Islam (sa) whose Divine Mission was specially blessed by time and history. He spoke profoundly on the strategies of preservation Allah (twa) Himself brought about in the fullness of time whereby the essential Message of Islam remained among the people long after the great Arabian Prophet who lived over a millennium ago, left from the gladiator of history. While all other Messengers before him spoke in tongues that lost their vitality and died in the march of history, the language of Arabic- the tongue of the Qur’an- surged ahead and embraced new lands and peoples and became the vehicle for the flowering of culture and civilization in the medieval age, and also in our own times, it retains its vitality as one of the transnational languages, as recognized by the UN systems as well. While the ideational influences of the Islamic world appealed to the hearts and minds of other peoples who came under its magical spell of sublime spirituality, the old Messages in other belief systems got mythicized and reduced into fantastic legends.

Moreover, the Khalifatullah (atba) pointed attention to the Qur’anic arrangement of spiritual renewal of Islam in every age. It is a binding commitment of the Creator of the Qur’an, to preserve the spirit of Islam. And the raising of Divine Reformers in every century is, as the Promised Massih (as) pointed out in the last century, the profound method through which the spiritual preservation and renewal of Islam take place. Such renewal of faith is only through the practical, living example of a Divine soul, who is raised to lead his earthily life in the very midst of his own people. While acknowledging that he belongs to the larger chain of such Divinely-raised souls, the Khalifatullah (atba) calls the attention of one and all to struggle with their own souls to understand the larger purpose of life and to attach themselves to the narrow and straight path of true spirituality.

A Historic Friday Sermon in Maldives

Ya Massih-e-Maoud-Al-Rassool-e-Nabiullah, Munir Ahmad Azimtamannaé kawno makan..." (O Promised Messiah, Messenger and Prophet of Allah Munir Ahmad Azim, the universe as a whole desires to inherit your love).

- (Extract of Revelation (in Verse form) in Urdu - 2004 & 2010)

Hadhrat Munir Ahmad Azim Sahib (atba) of Mauritius, the Muhyi-ud-Din and Khalifatullah of this era and the founder of Jamaat Ul Sahih Al Islam International, just completed a highly successful, three-nation- Sri Lanka, Maldives and the United Arab Emirates (Dubai & Abu Dhabi) Dawa Mission, which was undertaken in accordance with Divine inspiration and direction. The presence and effective preaching of the Khalifatullah in these different countries has been specially blessed by Allah the Most High, leading to the acceptance of Bai’at of new members and the official Registration of the Jamaat’s chapters with the respective national authorities. The Tabligh journeys of the Khalifatullah also provided extraordinary opportunities for other peoples in these countries to listen to the sublime message of Islam and its practical ordinances, as being expounded through Divine Revelations vouchsafed to the Muhyi-ud-Din of our times. 

While still on this international Dawa Mission, Hadhrat Munir Ahmad Azim Sahib (atba) made a historic Friday Sermon from the island-state of Maldives on May 02, 2014. Reflecting on the different religious systems and practices still existent in diverse parts of the world, the Khalifatullah expounds profoundly on the Qur'anic norms to assess the complex situation produced by human imaginations and extrapolations on prisitne teachings of world's religions. As the Divinely-raised Muhyi-ud-Din of this era, Hadhrat Sahib (atba) explains his lofty spiritual mission and invites the people to join him in the collective project of global reform through adhering to the Islamic teachings on personal and social transformation. 

Read the Extracts from the Friday Sermon:  
A question that currently arises is: if all religions were in fact founded by messengers from God, then why is there any difference in their teaching? Can the same God send down different teachings?

‘Shaqqul Qamar’ as a Miracle of Islam

The Hour draws near; the Moon is split. Yet whenever the disbelievers see a sign, they turn away and say, ‘Same old sorcery!’ ” (Surah Qamar, 54: 2-3)

In the Islamic sacred tradition, this verse of the Qur’an is generally associated with a special miracle of the Holy Prophet of Islam (sa), known widely as the event of “Shaqqul Qamar”, or the ‘splitting’ of the Moon. There are several Ahadith that confirms the miracle. The authenticity of these traditions are beyond reproach as the transmission chains and channels pertaining to them go all the way to the great companions of the Holy Prophet (sa), such as Ibn Abbas, Anas bin Malik, Abdullah bin Masud and others. The traditions on the subject can be seen in all the major collections of Ahadith: Bukhari, Muslim, Tirmidhi, etc. 

For instance, in Sahih Al Bukhari, one can read several traditions being reported on Shaqqul Qamar:

1.  Narrated Abdullah bin Masud: "During the lifetime of the Prophet the moon was split into two parts and on that the Prophet said, 'Bear witness (to thus).'"

2.  Narrated Anas:  "That the Meccan people requested Allah's Apostle to show them a miracle, and so he showed them the splitting of the moon."

3. Narrated Ibn 'Abbas: "The moon was split into two parts during the lifetime of the Prophet." (Volume 4, Book No:56,  Traditions: 830-832)

4. Narrated Anas bin Malik: "The people of Mecca asked Allah's Apostle to show them a miracle. So he showed them the moon split in two halves between which they saw the Hiram' mountain."

5. Narrated 'Abdullah: "The moon was split ( into two pieces ) while we were with the Prophet in Mina. He said, "Be witnesses." Then, a Piece of the moon went towards the mountain."

6. Narrated 'Abdullah bin 'Abbas: "During the lifetime of Allah's Apostle the moon was split (into two places)."

7.  Narrated 'Abdullah: "The moon was split (into two pieces)."  (Volume 5, Book No:58,  Traditions: 208-211)

Hadhrat Ali (ra) is reported to have affirmed to have heard the account from several persons that once a number of polytheists came to the Prophet Muhammed (sa), and said, 'If you claim to be a prophet, split the moon which is now in the sky into two parts.'

State of the World and the Celestial Signs

A Divine Mission in an age of raw passions

By the grace of Allah, throughout the years in which God dipped me in the fountain of His Divine Manifestation, He has taught me lots of things of which I never knew before. He taught me the languages of the birds and also of His beautiful creations of earth. All through the years, through His eyes, I have felt cherished in a special cocoon: Divine Love. He made me into an Adam (as) to reach out to people and make them understand the philosophy of life and living for a special purpose: the worship of one God.

Among the things He showed me is the need for peace, not only at our inner level, but also at world level. Through the inspirations He vouchsafed me, He taught me that the real cause of human strife and wars is due to selfishness, on one hand and the sacrilege of God’s remembrance and association to God in His Pure and Only Divinity, on the other. When people let go of the thread of unity, of sincerity and spirituality and preferred to indulge in self-interest, and when he forgot to act according to the divine laws, and forget to respect the rights of others, in the same go, he showed to himself the way down to hell; a hell of his very own creation.

Gone are the harmony and concord he should have gotten had he held fast to the commandments of God and act decently in the best interest of one and all. The respect he should have had for his neighbours, friends, surroundings, and his very own family, had he acted upon this respect and defended the spiritual values bestowed to him since the creation of the heavens and earth, he should have been successful in opening the secret door leading him to God.

The Restatement of Islam for Our Times

Angels and Divine Revelations

Angels are a part of Allah’s creation, they do what they are commanded, they depend on Allah in the same way as men or His other creatures. Allah is not dependent on them for the manifestation of His power. Had He willed, He would have created the universe without angels, but His perfect wisdom willed their creation. So angels came into being. Allah created light for the eye and bread for hunger. He created light and bread not because He was in need of them but because man was in need of them. The angels only manifest the will and wisdom of Allah. 

Divine Revelations are words and instructions from Allah and Allah speaks to His chosen servants and reveals to them His purpose. The recipient provides neither the meaning nor the words of revelation. Both come from Allah. Revelation provides real sustenance for man. Man lives by it and through it, man comes to have contact with Allah. The words, which embody a revelation of God, are unique in their power and majesty. No man can coin such words. They carry treasures of knowledge and wisdom, and they are very deep in meaning. They are like a mine the stone of which is the more valuable the deeper you dig. Indeed, a mine is nothing compared with divine revelation. A mine can be exhausted, but not the wisdom of divine revelation.

Divine Revelation is like a sea with a scented surface and a bed strewn with the most precious pearls. Those, who turn to the surface, enjoy the fragrance of the surface, and those, who dive deep, find the pearls below. Revelation is of many kinds, sometimes it consists of ordinances and laws, sometimes of exhortations. Sometimes it brings knowledge of the unseen, sometimes knowledge of spiritual truths. Sometimes it conveys the goodwill and approval of Allah, sometimes His disapproval and displeasure, sometimes His love and regard, sometimes warnings and rebukes. Sometimes it teaches points in morals, sometimes His insight into secret evils. In short, our belief is that God communicates His will to His servants. These communications vary with circumstance and the spiritual status of the recipient.

Spiritual Darkness and the Mahdis (the Guided Ones)

When darkness prevails in the world and human beings sink deep in sin and evil, when without the help of God it becomes difficult for them to release themselves from the hold of Satan, then out of His mercy and beneficence, Allah chooses from out of His own loving and loyal servants, those whom He charges with the duty to guide the world.

The Triumph of Divine Servants

Holy Prophet Muhammad (sa) states:

When you find the Mahdi, perform bai‘at at his hand. You must go to him, even if you have to reach him across icebound mountains on your knees. He is the Khalifatullah, [he is] the Mahdi.” 

        - (Sunan Ibn-e-Majah, Kitabul-Fitan, Babu Khurujil-Mahdi, Hadith no. 4074)

The Promised Massih Hadhrat Ahmad (as) says in Arabic:

Laa waliya ba'di illallazi howa minni wa ala ahdi-    There is no Wali after me except one who comes from me and has a relationship with me [“ Khutbah Ilhamiyyah”, Ruhani Khaza’in, vol. 16, pp.69-70; Internet Edition ]

The fulfilment of these Divine prophecies has taken place in our times, with the raising of Hadhrat Munir Ahmad Azim Sahib (atba) of Mauritius as the Khalifatullah, in complete obedience to the Holy Prophet (sa) and the Promised Massih (as), as per the glad tidings they have vouchsafed to the humankind in general and the Muslim Ummah in particular.

Uniting the Muslim Ummah: the Big Question

An Encounter with the Mullahs in Triolet

On Thursday 20 February 2014, I was in the North of Mauritius in one of its biggest villages called Triolet. On the way I met two Mullahs coming from Bangladesh. They presented themselves to me after greeting Salaam, and with very good and sweet words they invited me in the mosque at about 10:00a.m. I met many other Muslims coming from Bangalore and India. They asked me my name and before I have finished giving my full name, when I reached: Munir Ahmad, one of the Mullahs told me that his Burzuq’s name is Munir Ahmed, but then when I gave completed my full name: Munir Ahmad Azim, all of them looked at me with big surprised eyes and they suddenly turned aggressive.

Gone were the good and sweet words! Their tone changed and they immediately asked me: You have proclaimed that you are the Mohyuddin, Khalifatullah etc.”

Without any hesitation and fear to creatures, although they were in great numbers in the mosques, I replied them in the affirmative.

They then asked me a series of questions pertaining to the titles I have received from Allah, wanting to know who told me that I was the Khalifatullah, Mohyuddin etc. I told them that it is my Creator, my Rab, in whose hands my life, health, food, dignity and honour are found.  They did not believe me and called me liar and thus started a debate on the finality of prophethood in which they believe.

Holy Qur’an and the Sunnah as Final Guidance

Among other questions concerning the Mahdi and Messiah to come, they put to me put a question to me regarding a Hadith, “I have left for you the Book of Allah and the Sunnah, if you hold fast to it you will never go astray.”

Mubahila: Khalifa Sani and the Ahmadiyya Sects

Today, among the followers, or those who have accepted the claims, of the Promised Massih Hadhrat Ahmad (as) in the Jamaat-e-Ahmadiyya, one can count six different, denominational sects: Jamaat-e-Ahmadiyya Qadian, Anjuman Ahmadiyya Lahore, Jamaat-e-Ahmadiyya Al Muslemun, Jamaat-e-Ahmadiyya Islah Pasand, Jamaat Ul Sahih Al Islam and the Jamaat-e-Ahmadiyya Haquiqui

The recent Mubahila between two of the Ahmadiyya sects- Jamaat Ul Sahih Al Islam and the Jamaat-e- Ahmadiyya Islah Pasand is entering into a different stage now, with the Mujaddid claimant Abdul Ghaffar Janbah Sahib and his Jamaat-e-Ahmadiyya Islah Pasand declaring for himself a “clear victory” through his recent speeches. The boastful claims from the Janbah Sahib came after the completion of two years of publishing/uploading the official Mubahila Document in the respective official websites.

In contrast to the approach of the Janbah Sahib, Hadhrat Imam Muhyi-ud-Din Munir Ahmad Azim Sahib (atba)  and the Jamaat Ul Sahih Al Islam  has taken the position that the Janbah Sahib is gravely mistaken in his approach and perceptions and also in his appreciation for himself in the context of the Mubahila. Janbah Sahib is ignoring a profound fact about the situation: he had entered into the Mubahila, half-hearted and reluctant, as is so apparent from the way he conducted himself and his failure in fulfilling the simple procedural requirements in their full measure. He should not have abused the fact that Allah (twa) is compassionate and overlooks the mistakes and sometimes extends the days of people in His Wisdom. Insha Allah, the Jamaat Ul Sahih Al Islam is certain to serve the purpose of renewal of faith in our times, and there are glad tidings for those who are steadfast and do good deeds in the path of Allah.

The result/consequences of the Mubahila is itself a trial for the believers, especially for all Ahmadis found in the various sects of Jamaat-e-Ahmadiyya today. Given that all parties to the Mubahila are alive and positive factors that give personal and subjective satisfaction can be, and had been, shared from both ends, whose claims of decisive victory needs to be accepted may yet remain shrouded for many believers, especially those who have veils over their eyes which haze their spiritual vision. In his Friday Sermon of March 21, 2014 the Khalifatullah Hadhrat Munir Ahmad Azim Sahib (atba) of Mauritius spoke about the questions that are most relevant for those who analyse the Mubahila situation.

‘Janbah Sahib, Allah does not like the Boastful’

اِنَّ اللّٰہَ لَا یُحِبُّ مَنۡ  کَانَ  مُخۡتَالًا  فَخُوۡرَا ۙ ۝

“Innallaaha laa yuhibbu man-kaana mukh-taalan-fakhuuraa” (4: 37)
Allah does not like those who are self-deluding and boastful.

In his Friday Sermon delivered on 07 March 2014 in Urdu, Abdul Ghaffar Janbah Sahib is rejoicing with boastfulness and arrogance that he is enjoying good health and has his mission spread in the world, and he even went as far as to say that he shall live till at least 80 years old, thus saying that the Mubahila had no real effect on him.

He does not say that he has acted with treachery on the question, when he and his disciple Mansoor Ahmed signed on the Mubahila (so as to come in the court of Allah to let Allah the Great decide who between the two: the Musleh Ma’ud (as) or him, is true especially with the bad words and names they said against him. Abdul Ghaffar Janbah Sahib also stated that the prophecy which Hazrat Massih Ma’ud (as) received was for him, that he is that Zaki Ghulam and that the Musleh Ma’ud (as) was false). Therefore despite signing, yet he did not date his Mubahila form.

They acted with treachery and were not straightforward or valorous. They did not put on the date, month and year so that world may see where truth shall triumph. He also stated that his Jamaat has spread everywhere, yet he did not mention his Jamaat in the signed Mubahila form/document.

On the other hand, we the Jamaat Ul Sahih Al Islam firmly believe in Hazrat Massih Ma’ud (as) and the prophecy he made about Allah the Great bestowing upon him a pious son etc., and we believe firmly in the Musleh Ma’ud (as) and we – the Jamaat Ul Sahih Al Islam – and especially my disciple Fazil Jamal Sahib and I entered in a Mubahila with Abdul Ghaffar Janbah Sahib and his Jamaat, but despite him signing (on the Mubahila form) along with his disciple Mansoor Ahmed, but he did not come as an equal with his Jamaat, unlike this humble self who have come with my Jamaat. Without doubt, “Innallaaha Azaabam Muhiinaa” – Allah shall humiliate them. (Revelation)

Surah Ar-Rahman: JINNS & the Humans

Recently, a Muslim brother from India put forward a request to Hadhrat Khalifatullah (atba) for exposition concerning the gardens as mentioned in Chapter 55 of the Holy Quran. In connection with the issue, the Khalifatullah (atba) turned in prayer to Allah, and the following explanations in English ensued. The explanations include a short commentary of Surah Ar-Rahman, the Jinns and the gardens which form the subject matter of the Surah.

For the spiritual enlightenment of one and all, we reproduced below the inspired commentary provided by the Muhyi-ud-Din (atba) on certain aspects of the subtle and profound verities of Divine wisdom encompassed in Surah Ar Rahman:

The Jinns and the Humans

Surah Ar-Rahman deals with the absolute power of Allah in spreading His mercy and benevolence to not only mankind but to the realm of the Jinns also who cohabit in the world of humans, invisible to the naked eyes – yet there is an invisible veil which separates the two and thus the two creations co-exist and both types of creatures of Allah are mortal.

The mortality of human is revealed when his soul leaves the body of clay and water whereas the Jinns get access to a body of felicity after inhabiting a body made of fire. Therefore, the Almighty has granted knowledge to both species so that they may accede to God.

Mubahila against Janbah Sahib: Truth Triumphs

Where a man is pure of heart,
He does not need  multiple miracles:
One single sign is enough to lead such a one, 
To the right path, if  there be
The Fear of God in the heart!
                                           - Brahin-e-Ahmadiyya, Part V

“If the world witnesses at any time.... if sees at any time that those who deny me has overcome those who believe in me, then, you may conclude that I was an impostor....”

                                                -Hadhrat Khalifa Sani (ra) on his claim of being Musleh Maoud     

In recent weeks, many people ask a question: what is the outcome of the Mubahila Challenge launched by Imam Muhyi-ud-Din Hadhrat Munir Ahmad Azim Sahib (atba) of Mauritius against Abdul Ghaffar Janbah Sahib, Mansur Ahmed Sahib and their Jamaat-e-Ahmadiyya Islah-Pasand?

In a speech on February 20, 2014 Hadhrat Sahib (atba) of Mauritius eloquently explained the prophecy on Musleh Maoud in its classical setting, traditional explanations over it in the Jamaat-e-Ahmadiyya and also its interpretative possibilities in the contemporary context of the Divine Manifestation in Mauritius.  The circumstances behind, and conditionalities of, the Mubahila Challenge was also dealt with, while reminding the world that the opponent parties cannot escape from the fact that the truthful and the truth must triumph”: “And you cannot prevent it from happening”.  

Some people, however, have already reached their own “conclusions” about the apparent, perceived/alleged “failure” of the Mubahila to lead to the “destruction” of either of the parties to the challenge!
