'Tawheed' and 'Taqwa': The Road to Renewal

The Revival of Islam
And when guidance comes to you from Me, whoever follows My guidance - there will be no fear concerning them, nor will they grieve. (Al-Baqara 2: 39).

By the grace of Allah, it gives me great pleasure to address you all my disciples in Kottar (Tamil Nadu, India) today on “The Revival of Islam”.

Allah says in the Holy Quran, in the verses that I have just recited before you (in Surah Al-Baqara, Chapter 2, Verse 39): 

And when guidance comes to you from Me, whoever follows My guidance - there will be no fear concerning them, nor will they grieve.

Since the creation of the heaven and earth and man, Allah has sent again and again over so many centuries His chosen servants who came with the Holy Spirit (Ruh’il Quddus) to bring back the people on the right path. Why did these chosen servants of Allah had to come? It is because, after the passage of time, Satan and his army deviate from time to time – to be precise, he keeps on trying to deviate – people from the path of Allah, and thus, Allah, to save the people from spiritual deaths, send to them His special people, messengers coming from Him, blessed with divine revelations and guidance and the power of prophecy to warn the people of the traps of Satan and to show them the right path.

This right path is primarily the Tawheed, i.e. the Unicity of Allah and Taqwa, i.e. the fear of Allah. If the people establish themselves on Tawheed and have Taqwa, then the fear of the Satan and all his attractions will have no effect on them.

Why Follow A Mujaddid-II

"He who dies without having a pledge of allegiance (to the Imam/Khalifah) on his neck, dies the death of Jahilliyah."-- Holy Prophet Muhammad (sa)

'Allah’s Messenger (sa) said three times: May Allah’s mercy be upon my Caliphs.  The Companions said: ‘And who are your Caliphs, O Messenger of Allah?’ He said: ‘Those who revive my Sunna and teach it to the people!’" (According to al-Hasan bin ‘Ali (ra): Ibn ‘Asakir in Tarikh Dimashq al-Kabir, 51/61)

"The obligation of appointing an Imam (Khalifah) is from the necessities of the Shari'ah that simply cannot be left." - Imam Al-Ghazzali

It is regrettable that most Muslims today are simply unaware of the deep verities of the Faith they otherwise claim to profess and even practice. People in their ignorance and stupidity usually remain satisfied with what they are habitually familiar with- inherited family traditions, ritual practices and the tales of dead and gone Divine savants in their communities. So much so that by their sheer negligence of profound teachings - especially those pertaining to the advent of Divinely-imbued souls to guide the Ummah in every era of Islam-, the folks do not recognize what they are missing out in experiential spirituality or the rich inner life that the Islamic Way promises to the Divine-seekers.  

Against this indifference of contemporary peoples stand the rich record of the past. Indeed through the millennium and more of Islamic history, the Divinely-raised Mujaddidin had left their imprints on Islamic spirituality in every era. As Shah Waliullah Dehlawi (ra) noted in one of his books: "A Mujadid appears at the end of every century, the Mujadid of the 1st century was Umar bin Abdul Aziz for establishing justice. The Mujadid of the 2nd century was Imam Shafi for explaining the Aqa’id and Fiqh. The Mujadid of the 3rd century was Abu Hasan al Ashari for formulating the sciences of Ahl us Sunnah and refuting the innovators. The Mujadid of the 4th century was Imam al Hakim and Al Baihaqi for laying the foundations in Hadith sciences and Abu Hamid Isfara’ini for spreading Ilm of Fiqh. In the 5th century was Imam Ghazzali for opening new paths in Fiqh, Kalaam and Tasawwuf. In the 6th century was Fakhr ud-Din Razi for spreading knowledge of Kalaam while Nawawi spread knowledge of Fiqh.” [Shah Walliullah in his Izalat al-Khafa]

Like many saints of Islam in the past, in the previous century, the Promised Massih and Mahdi Hadhrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad (as) of Qadian also offered layers of spiritual and logical explanations to ‘normalize’ the phenomenon of Divine Manifestations among the Muslim believers. Through his comprehensive and all pervading engagement with the spiritual doctrine in all its settings, the Promised Massih (as) has left behind an extraordinary range of explanations emphasizing the need for recognizing an Elect of God whenever such a person announces his spiritual mission of renewal of the Faith. The Promised Massih (as) noted that Allah (swt) maintained the institution of Reformers (Mujaddidin) after the Seal of the Prophets, because along with their own practical example, these personages command a spiritual attraction and influence, and virtue of the highest degree could be observed in their persons-  a path of spirituality that any thoughtful person would inherently find appealing.

Why Follow A ‘Mujaddid’- I

Islam after the Holy Prophet Muhammad (sa)

Contemporary Muslim world is riddled with profound paradoxes and deep ironies both in its secular and spiritual realms. Muslims today stand at the crossroads of time: from providing frameworks for the profound transformation of whole communities and nations, and guiding people on the virtues of inner peace and social equilibrium; the Muslims have come to witness periods of decline and fall in their political and spiritual fortunes as well. Severe trials of history in the forms of colonialism and imperialism- the long onslaught of alien economic, military and ideological dominance over the Muslim lands- scarred the psyche of many Muslim societies and peoples. Even in the face of the jealous machinations of the enemies and the many failings of its claimed adherents, it is astonishing that Islam could survive and flourish against all oddsIndeed, by all indications and empirical projections, Islam is poised to outgrow all other religions and is destined to embrace every nook and corner of this world in the foreseeable future. Insha Allah, Aameen. 

The Path of the Saints: Mujaddid/Muhaddith/Khalifatullah 

Notwithstanding the clear intimations of Divine favour on Islam as the paramount belief system of the evolving future; it is deeply ironical that the religion is besieged by simmering internal crises. Much of the Islamic world is beset with looming fires of various kinds amidst deepening sectarian divisionsAt a time when the propaganda against Islam as an oppressive social order (God forbid) remains raging in non-Muslim public/ social circles, it is also disconcerting that there is a glaring disconnect between the ideals of the Faith and the realities of practice in every day life among the Muslims. 

Since most Muslims today have an imperfect understanding of Divine commandments and religious doctrines they have inherited from their pious ancestors, it is a religious imperative that the spiritual appeal and ethical beauty of Islam is reclaimed and renewed by living testimonials in the everyday life of the community at large. It is instructive to note in this context vital Islamic teachings regarding the continuity of spiritual vicegerency in every era of Islam through the advent of some perfect followers of the Light of Muhammad (sa). Indeed the Qur'an makes a spiritual promise that Allah (swt) shall raise His special servants with a mandate to hold aloft the torch of Faith and for the renewal/re-birth of sublime morals of Islam among the believers. Such teachings about the coming of the Saints of the Faith to serve as the guiding stars even in times of crises and confusion powerfully point to the inner vitality of the Islamic Way. If Islam has survived and continues to endure as the Holy Path of God despite all the political crises in Muslim lands, it is indeed in large measure due to the instrumental and exemplary roles of the extraordinary men (and women) of God who appeared to serve the Faith over the centuries. 

Mujaddidin will continue to Appear

The Promised Massih Hadhrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad (as) of Qadian was a spiritual polymath, steeped in all the religious sciences. He spoke with extraordinary urgency and consistency on the need for the wider acceptance within the Muslim Ummah of forgotten Islamic teachings- regarding advent of Divinely-imbued souls such as a Mujaddid/Muhaddith/Khalifatullah among the Muslims in every era. 

Perhaps some of the finest explanations on the purpose and significance of such Divine Manifestations in Islam is found in the enduring writings of the Promised Massih (as). In an era in which his own so called followers and disciples have completely trampled to dust the great legacy of the Promised Massih (as) by ignoring and evading the Divine Manifestation of this era among the Ahmadis in the person of Hadhrat Muhyi-ud-Din Al Khalifatullah Munir Ahmad Azim Saheb (atba) of Mauritius, it is all the more important to revisit his thoughts and reclaim his profound reflections on the advent of Mujaddidin and Muhaddithin among the believers. Reproduced below are certain extracts from the Speeches and Discourses (‘Malfoozat’) of the Promised Massih (as) on the theme:

If now is not the time for the advent of the awaited one, the earliest that he can appear now is after a hundred years. For a divinely appointed Reformer (Mujaddid) must always appears at the head of the century”. -----The First Address of the Promised Messiah (as) at the Annual Convention on 25 December 1897).

'Laila-tul- Qadr': Rise of a 'Mujaddid'/ 'Khalifatullah'

In the Muslim spiritual imagination, the month of Ramadan is deeply embedded as the sacred month of Fasting for the sake of God Almighty. The month also reminds us about the advent of Divine revelations on the Holy Prophet Muhammad (sa) and the sacred birth of the Holy Qur'an! Indeed the Holy Qur'an itself acknowledges that it was in the blessed nights of Ramadan that the very first verses began to be revealed on the Holy Prophet of Islam (sa). The Holy Book says: “The month of Ramadan in which was revealed the Quran, a guidance for mankind and clear proofs for the guidance and the criterion (between right and wrong).” [2:185] “Verily! We have sent it (this Qur'an) down in the night of Al-Qadr (Decree). [97:1].  "Truly, We revealed it in a blessed Night"(44:3). 

Distinguished lexicographers and Qur'an scholars have noted that wherever the Qur'an speaks of "Lailah", it has a deep connection with the descent of Divine revelations. The saints of Islam had noted the profound connection of "Lailat-ul-Qadr" with the advent of Muhaddith (recipient of Divine revelations), "Khalifatullah" (Caliph of God) and Mujaddid (Divine reformer) in every era of Islam. The Promised Massih Hadhrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad (as) of Qadian also sought to educate and remind the Muslims of his era about the significance of 'Lailat-ul-Qadr' and the deep spiritual verities of Surah Al Qadr, especially with regard to the raising of great spiritual souls in every era of Islam as 'Mujaddid', 'Muhaddith', 'Khalifatullah', etc. 

Reproduced below are the words of Hadhrat Massih Maoud (as) from one of his books, Fateh-e-Islam: 

Allah gives glad tidings to the faithful in Surah Al Qadr that His prophet and His revelation descended from the heaven during the period of Laila-tul- Qadr (the Night of Decree).

Every Muhaddath and Mujaddid who is commissioned by Allah always appears during the Night of Decree. 

Do you understand what is meant by the Night of Decree? The Night of Decree or the Laila-tul- Qadr is the name of a night when spiritual darkness reaches its ultimate gloom. That gloom, metaphorically, demands a light from heaven for its dissipation. This night is symbolically called the Night of Decree. In fact, it is not a night, but a period, which is referred to as a ‘night’ because of its intense darkness. 

One thousand months is the approximate life span of a human being. It is also a period after which normal human senses ceases to functionThe elapse of a period of one thousand months, following the demise of a Prophet or his spiritual successor also signals the commencement of a ‘night’ of darkness. This ‘night’ triggers fervour in the heavens and the seeds of the birth of one or more reformers (Mujaddidin) is stealthily sown. Thus such a Mujaddid or prepare to emerge at the head of the new century. The following verse is also an indication by Allah towards this phenomenon:


  “The Night of Decree is better than a thousand months” (Surah Al Qadr, 97:4) .

Hazrat Ahmad: A Life Divine

Remembering the Promised Messiah

Today is 23 March 2018, and it's been 129 years since the Promised Messiah, Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad (as) of Qadian, founded the Ahmadiyya Movement in Islam and accepted the oaths of allegiance (Bai'at) from his 40 disciples in the house of Sufi Ahmad Jan in Ludhiana. The first person who took the oath from the hand of the Promised Messiah (as) was Hazrat Maulvi Nuruddin (ra) of Bhera who later became the first caliph of the Promised Messiah (as) - Khalifatul-Massih Awwal.

In Mauritius and other countries of the world, this historic day is known as: “Promised Messiah Day” and we, the Ahmadi Muslim, take this opportunity to speak about the life and aspects of the mission of the Promised Messiah (as).

Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad (as) belonged to a Persian clan named Burlass. Among his ancestors was Mirza Hadi Baig, who emigrated from his hometown Samarkand (Khurasan) to settle in India accompanied by two hundred people from among his clan who included his family and his employees. He was a very noble person, a scholar and a pious person. India was at that time under the reign of the Mughal emperor Babar (1483-1530), and the emperor had given vast expanses of land to Mirza Hadi Baig as a gift for his loyal services. (Inset: Illustration of Babur, founder of the Mughal Empire in India, 1526-1857)

Thereafter Mirza Hadi Baig chose a portion of this vast land, and decided to settle there with his clan. He then founded a city and named it Islampur and with the passage of time, the name Islampur passed through several forms of change and was known as Islampur Qadi Maajhi, and then simply Qadi Maajhi, and then Qadi, and where finally this city was known like Qadian.

On the "Charlie Hebdo" Attack in Paris

The European religious history in the last millennium is stained with despicable attacks on Islam and the Holy Prophet Muhammad (sa). The culprits, in their ignorance and hostility, seek to insult and defame the faith of the Muslims, parading and projecting a most hateful image of the religion of Allah (twa) and slandering and caricaturing  the fair name of its Holy Founder so as to destroy his reputation in the eyes of the general public in their societies. Contemporary caricaturing of the Holy Prophet (sa) in the Western media essentially inherits this imbecility from that unfortunate legacy of hate speech and blasphemy, and all of this is indulged in the sacred name of liberty of expression and press freedom.   

As a Divinely-raised Warner and the Mujaddid (Reviver of Faith among the Muslims) of our times, Hadhrat Khalifatullah Munir Ahmad Azim Sahib (atba) of Mauritius has, on several occasions in the last decade, spoken up against this caricaturing of the Holy Prophet of all Muslims in the western press, warning that such offences are punishable in this very world and the repercussions shall be worst for the culprits and their societies. In the aftermath of the recent incidents involving Charlie Hebdo, political analysts confirm that the attacks indeed constitute an "earthquake" for the French society, parading the inadequacies of the French Republic to come to terms with the societal transitions in its backyard and the collective failures in imagining a shared future that accommodates the diversities and integrate the people on the basis of its professed, foundational principles of liberty, equality and fraternity. The astonishing prophecy issued by Hadhrat Sahib (atba),  warning the Charlie Hebdo and the likes in 2011,  had been documented at that time in the Blog and can be read here

Presented below are brief remarks on the Chalie Hebdo attack in Paris made by the Hadhrat Khalifatullah (atba) in his Friday Sermon of January 16, 2015: 

Before coming to the heart of my Khutba Jummah (Friday Sermon) on the duties and obligations of parents towards their children, I would like to say few words concerning the Paris “Charlie Hebdo” attack.

As you all know by now, on Wednesday 7th January 2015 some people opened fire on the newspaper staffs (among others) of “Charlie Hebdo” in France (12 victims), in one of the abominable bloodshed on the soil of France, as the news channel and other media do not hesitate to state. And as usual, Islam is being blamed for such atrocity and not the people behind it.

And as you all know, years ago, around 2006 and 2011, in the backdrop of the first cartoon calumniation of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (pbuh), I issued a prophecy, a clear warning that those who shall play with the purity of the person of the Holy Prophet of Islam shall be punished by Allah, the Most High. Indeed liberty of expression is one thing and calumniating the heart of a religion on the basis of a so-called liberty of expression is another. Indeed the Messenger of Allah cannot tolerate that a single calumniation be brought on the person on the Holy Prophet of Islam (pbuh) and I shall continue to defend his honour till my last breath.

A 'Mujaddid' after the Promised Massih

“Innii jaa-ilun fil arzi Khalifah”

I am going to place My Vicegerent (Caliph) in the earth. (Chapter 2 Verse 31)

Fa-immaa ya-ti-yan-nakum-minnii hudan faman tabi-a hudaa-ya falaa khawfun alayhim wa laa hum yah-zanuun.

Surely there will come to you guidance from Me, then whoever follows My guidance, no fear shall come upon them, nor shall they grieve. (Chapter 2 Verse 39)

In light of these two verses that I read to you, we see that it (appearance of an Elect of Allah) is a blessing from Allah, not men.

Once man has reached a certain degree of mental maturity, God has sent prophets to guide him. The advent of these prophets is a great manifestation of God’s grace and a source of His many blessings. When these prophets die, Allah favours the world by giving it another manifestation of His grace – blessing its people by sending Mujaddidin, Reformers, and Revivalists, Messiahs or even Caliphs of Allah (Khalifatullah).

The Caliph of Allah (Khalifatullah) as Allah Himself has made clear “Innii jaa ilun fil-Arzi Khalifah”, i.e., Allah Himself, the Most High will place His Khalifah on Earth, and it is not by the vote of men that this Khalifah will be elected. This is by no means the same as the election of a minister or an MP. A Khalifatullah is unique. Why? Because he is not elected by the hand of men, but rather, he is established by God and chosen by Him, Himself. This means that the Khalifatullah is not only intellectually and spiritually speaking, the Chosen One of Allah, but he also commands by his status the highest moral quality. It is for these reasons that a Khalifatullah becomes for the Ummah of Hazrat Muhammad (peace be upon him) a wealth of blessings.

This divine manifestation has been amply demonstrated by God, with the arrival of a Khalifatullah where there is a spiritual revolution, especially when Islam (the universal religion) is now in a painful and difficult situation. Problems did not wait to come to the surface. When we see many so-called Muslims, and great defenders of Islam trampling the teachings of Islam, we realize that they are Muslims in name only.

Now let us see what the Promised Messiah, the founder of Jamaat Ahmadiyya (on him be peace) has said. In his book Shahadat’ul Quran (on pg. 48 - 60), the Promised Messiah (on him be peace) said:

“‘Qudrat-e-Saniyah’ is everlasting and will end till the day of Judgement”. The meaning of the Promised Messiah (on him be peace), in this sentence concerning the word “Qudrat-e-Saniyah” implies to “Khilafat”. And according to the Promised Messiah (on him be peace), “Khilafat” does not only implies to “Khilafat-e-Rassool” but it also implies to “Mujaddid”. The Promised Messiah (on him be peace) believes that “Khilafat” includes “the four rightly guided successors of Rassool” and Allah willed that it should continue to exist permanently till the Day of Judgement.

Thus, the Promised Messiah (on him be peace) has not declared the “Ahmadiyya Khilafat” everlasting in his writings. What he has declared everlasting are two things: (1) Qudrat-e-Saniyah (2) Islamic Khilafat.

Divine Revelations of the Khalifatullah

Revelations as Divine Mercy

"It is not granted to any mortal that God should speak to him except through revelation or from behind a veil, or by sending a messenger to reveal by His command what He will: He is exalted and wise. So we have revealed a spirit to you by Our command: you knew neither the Scripture nor the faith, but We made it a light, guiding with it whoever We Will of Our servants. You give guidance to the straight path, the path of God, to whom belongs all that is in the heavens and earth: truly everything will return to God.” (42: 52-54)

Say that the “Roohul Quds” (Holy Spirit) has brought the Revelation with the Truth step by step from your Lord, to strengthen the believers and as guidance and good news to the devout Muslims” (16: 103). 

A recipient of Divine revelations and other inspirations and spiritual visions bring with him, with the help of the Roohul Quds,  an abundance of Divine communications and spiritual messages. Such messages from the Unseen may contain glad tidings foretelling the brilliant destiny awaiting a people. It can also include clear warnings about the potential dangers ahead in their collective lives, both mundane and spiritual. That is why devout Muslims- those who wholeheartedly submit to the Will and Decree of the Almighty Allah, at all times- consider revelations and inspirations as a great bounty and special blessings of the Almighty. These fortunate believers, whose hearts open up to recognize, accept the Divine Message of the times, walk along, in the narrow and straight path of the Divine, being guided and hand held by that servant of Allah the Most High, in their spiritual journey of a lifetime. Hence, the presence of a recipient of Divine revelations is the very embodiment of Divine mercy for the community of believers.

Consider the experience of the Divinely-raised Muhyi-ud-Din Hadhrat Munir Ahmad Azim Sahib (atba) of Mauritius, the servant of Allah in our times. As we have noted in previous articles in the Blog, Hadhrat Sahib is a born-soldier of Islam, having had with him from a relatively very young age of his blessed life, an abiding interest in religious matters and an intuitive understanding of effective preaching and an exceptional drive to spread further and further the true message of Islam for all of humanity. Years before the Divine Call, as a devout Daai-e-Ilallah, Munir Ahmad Azim Sahib was the ambassador of the Promised Massih (as) to the several communities and peoples of the Indian Ocean island-states, including Reunion Island (1990)Mayotte (1997) and Seychelles (2000), helping to establish the Jamaat-e-Ahmadiyya in these distant lands. Through his fervent prayers and the Divine Grace over his ardent preaching efforts,  hundreds of people in these lands got the opportunity to recognize the sublime path of true Islam.

Indeed, in the annals of Jamaat-e-Ahmadiyyathe extraordinary services rendered by this humble servant of Islam to the mission of the Promised Massih (as) had been recorded by the Fourth Khalifa Hadhrat Mirza Tahir Ahmad Sahib himself. Even more importantly, Allah (twa) showed His deep appreciation and profound satisfaction for the sincere and earnest efforts, when Allah (swa) took him under His wing of Mercy and blessed him with an abundance of Divine communications and spiritual messages, to a level and scale unheard of in the history of Islam since the times of the Promised Massih (as). If the solitude of the Arabian desert provided the perfect setting for the revelation-centered, Divine mission of the Holy Prophet of Islam (sa), the waves of the Indian Ocean will forever bear witness to the preaching of this Divine Elect, Insha Allah(For an account about the  family background and early life of Hadhrat Sahib, click here:  12345678910 ).

Divine Revelations on a Purified Heart

For the benefit of our readers, we have assembled here, a few of the Divine revelations and other Divine Messages vouchsafed to the Khalifatullah Hadhrat Munir Ahmad Azim Sahib Sahib (atba) over the years. While the list of revelations and messages presented here are by no means exhaustive or even comprehensive, these are certainly illustrative of the Divine communications vouchsafed to Hadhrat Sahib (atba) in the last decade and beyond. We understand that many other messages are to be unveiled and these are awaiting to be codified together, in the fullness of time, Insha Allah, Aameen.  The revelations mentioned here are those that are available over the official website, one could read many of them in the archives of the Friday Sermons delivered over the last decade or so. 

La Maqsooda Illallah, meaning there is no destination but Allah.

La Mabooda bil Haqqe Iillallah - There is no one to worship in truth but Allah

Laa Ghaliba Illallah”- The Victory of Allah

Surely, true guidance is Allah's Guidance

And him whom Allah guides, there is none to lead him astray”

من عرف نفسه فقد عرف ربه    “Man arafa nafsahu faqad arafa rabbahu.”

That is to say: "He who knows his self knows his Lord".

رأيت ربي بعين ربي  “Ra’aytu rabbi bi ayni rabbi”  That is to say: “I saw my Lord through the (merciful) eye of my Lord.” 

"If you become solely Mine, indeed the whole world shall come to be thine".

“Purify yourself of the attributes of the self in order to contemplate your own pure essence, and look in your own heart all the sciences of the prophets, without books, without teachers, without masters. The book of the true servant of Allah is not composed of ink and letters; it is nothing but a heart white as snow. The scholar is not the one to borrow knowledge from any book and who becomes ignorant when he forgets what he has learned. The true scholar is one who receives, when he wants, his knowledge from his Lord, without study or teaching.

“It is Allah who silences it or makes it speak. It is He who veils it or unveils it. It is He who gives it and takes it back wherever and whenever He pleases because that light comes from Him. That is why He works within that Light as He wishes and wherever He pleases and in whom He pleases and according to His will.”

"O My Servant, Your Boss is a good payer, with the price of your labour, you shall receive eternity".

O you Soul at peace! Return to your Lord well pleased (with Him) and He well pleased (with you). So enter among My servants, And enter My Paradise.” (HQ, 89: 28-31)

The perfect mind comprehends not imperfection.
It derives pleasure from Source Divine
It shelters faith in the furthest compartment,
Willing the heart to be pleased with love anew;
From the start of the Swell of submission
The mind comprehends not the Purpose Divine.
Of the world it knows no other,
Except the one whom God makes him see through the wonders of his capabilities;
Islam is his ideal
Islam is his focus
Perfection over perfection!”

(Received on 22 June 2011)

On the spiritual Mission and Divine Mandate

“Fasbir sabran Jameela”meaning, “Show beautiful patience”(In the year, 2000).

"Even if the world leaves you tomorrow, but Allah is with you, ALL is with you, but if the world is with you, and Allah is not with you, nothing is with you."

Stand up and warn, And your Lord do you magnify, And your clothes do you purify, And uncleanliness do you shun, And bestow not favours seeking to get more in return, And for the sake of your Lord, do you endure trials patiently”.

Convey what has been revealed to you from your Lord; and if you do it not, you have not conveyed His Message. And Allah will protect you from men”.

"You are the Mohyuddin of this era"

“O Mohyiuddin, arise and create a new world!

“You Are the New Orbit”

"O descendant of Deen-e-Islam each time that in some place in the Universe religion declines and irreligion advances, I send someone with the Rou-hil-Qoudouss".

O Munir Ahmad Azim, you are known as the Reviver of religion, you are the strength of this religion, O Mohyuddin

O Mohyuddin! My relation to you is above all relations. Your status is indeed high.

O Khalifatullah, Muhyi-ud-Din, My beloved Munir Azim, arise and create a new world”.

 Ya Khalifathullah! Qul: “Annal Mujaddido (O Khalifathullah! Tell them: ‘I am the Mujaddid’)

On the state of Ahmadi beliefs

The teachings of the Promised Messiah have been trampled to dust”.

The teachings of the Promised Messiah have been trampled to dust…. They give khilafat more importance than My divine words (Holy Quran), the Sunnah of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (sa) and the teachings of the second Issa (the Promised Messiah)”.

“Diamond will cut Diamond”.

I will humiliate he who tries to humiliate you”.

“We will punish them from where they expect not”.

“In the long run evil in the extreme will be the End of those who do evil; for that they rejected the Signs of God, and held them up to ridicule.” 

“Allah says that they are working very hard to deviate the followers especially the weak ones. They think that they possess the power of the world. When a prophet comes, what do these people do, they try to weaken his faith, so as to stop the propagation of one God. They ignore that Allah has chosen him and he is a Rassool-Allah, a prophet of God, a Khalifatullah and a Massih’ullah. When Allah sends His Rassool, do you think he will walk on red, velvet carpet? Will he live a comfortable and easy life? When he stands alone firmly, steadily to proclaim himself as the prophet of God, everybody is against him except very few believe in him. Allah says that whatever strategy they apply to humiliate My prophet, Allah will never support them. Allah challenges them that if ever they take all the people in this world with them, all stand against My prophet, saying that they are the possessor of power, Allah says that when I am with my prophet no man can weaken My power. Allah is the Most-Powerful. Allah is the inflictor of punishment. He can send His punishment at any time. No one can save them, neither their wealth nor their children. No one can save them from the anger of Allah. Their punishment will be double as they cannot hear the words of Allah (REVELATION).” (Extract of Friday Sermon 01 February 2008)

“...signs foretelling the death and destruction of those who stood in the way of My Khalifatullah will become increasingly manifest. The time of the destruction of the enemies of Hazrat Mirza Ghulam (as) and the Muhyi-ud-Din Khalifatullah of this era, will remain hidden so that when the Divine punishment overtook them all of a sudden, they will become completely non-plussed and will not know what to do.” (REVELATION 20 January 2010 @ 2.15pm 

On Adversaries and their challenges

Look how they strike for you comparisons; but they have strayed, so there is no way out for them”.

“We verily know what they say grieve you. But really they do not believe that you are lying, but it is the revelations of Allah, (which) the unjust reject.” (~ November 25, 2011)

Those who argue concerning Allah after He has been responded to – their argument is invalid with their Lord, and upon them is (His) wrath, and for them is a severe punishment.

“Laa takhaf innaka antal-a’alaa” – Fear not, for you shall have the upper hand.

Falaa tahinuu wa tad-‘uuu ‘ilas-salmi wa ‘antumul-‘a’-lawna wallaahu ma-‘akum wa layy-yatirakum ‘a’-maalakum. 

(So do not weaken and call for peace while you are superior; and Allah is with you and will never deprive you of (the reward of) your deeds.) December 2011

But they wonder that there has come to them a Warner from among themselves, and these people say, “This is an amazing thing.” Verily they denied the truth when it came to them, so they are in a confused condition. And the intoxication of death shall certainly bring forth the truth; that is specifically what they are trying to avoid (that is, death). And Allah says: Wa innaz-zaalimiina lahum azaabun aliim – Verily, the wrongdoers shall have a painful chastisement. (Insha-Allah)

In the Friday Sermon of 21 March 2014, it was announced by the Khalifatullah (atba)In the capacity of Khalifatullah in this era, I would like to tell Abdul Ghaffar Janbah Sahib and his followers the following revelation which I have received from Allah:

Wa-adallaahul Jamaat Ul Sahih Al Islam huwal fawzul Aziim. 

Allah has promised the Jamaat Ul Sahih Al Islam the Grand Victory.

Warnings about Calamities

The state of the world is such that it shall witness all the more calamities, destructions which shall be a lesson for them for their disobedience to the divine commands. They have turned away from My worship. Haiti is in serious condition, and so will be other countries because these people have left My worship to grip the dirt of this world. Remember O Khalifatullah what I had told you so many times: Destructions, destructions, destructions – rivers of blood will follow, and widows shall weep and tears will be of no avail. No man in the power of man can stop Allah’s design. What Allah has decreed shall come. (Revelation; – in bold – reappeared 8 times at 12.05pm on 20 January 2010).

How many a people have turned in their pride against the command of their Lord and His Messengers! We made them a stern reckoning, and punished them with a horrible punishment. So they tasted the mischief of their deed, and the end of their matter was loss. Allah has prepared a severe punishment for them. So those possessing understanding and who believe, fear Allah! Allah has sent this (the message) down for you as a reminder, (through) a messenger reciting to you the clear revelations of Allah as proof, so that he may bring forth those who believe and do good deeds from darkness into light. Whosoever believes in Allah and does good deeds He will admit him to gardens underneath which rivers flow where they shall live forever and ever. For those (people), Allah has made a nice provision.” (Mentioned in the Friday Sermon of March 25, 2011)

And tell them Oh Muhyi-ud-Din: Indeed, I have come to warn you clearly. Like this, We had sent warners to those who have cut (their scriptures) in pieces, and those who have made the Quran into portions. So by your Rab, We will surely question them all about what they used to do. Then declare what you are commanded and turn away from those who ascribe associates to Allah. Indeed, We are sufficient for you against those who mock, who put other god with Allah. This I promise you, soon they shall know.” (Revelation in Creole:  30 August 2012)

Advice for Believers

O Mohyuddin! Tell your people, be courageous; my disciple, be cheerful and sing in ecstasy. You are among the one who acknowledge this saying.

For me, of course, all of you are my spiritual children, and my prayers are, accordingly, for all of you alike... So I warn you against your indulging yourselves in the worldly temptation so much as to forget your spiritual development altogether. If you really wish to share the blessings of Allah, through your accepting the manifestations and revelations, you will have also to hand over your entire selves and all your belongings to Allah and thus bring death to your temporary pleasures. 

1. The more is a man’s attachment to the world, the less is he likely to attain knowledge. The less his attachment to the world, the more is the probability of his gaining knowledge.

2. If you must be mad, be it not for the things of the world. Be mad with the love of God.

3. That knowledge which purifies the mind and heart alone is true knowledge, all else is only a negation of knowledge. As soft clay easily takes an impression, but not hard stone, so also Divine Wisdom impresses itself on the heart of a devotee, but not on a bound soul.

4. He alone enters the kingdom of Heaven who is not a thief of his own thought. In other words, guilelessness and simple faith are the roads to that kingdom.” 

   -(Revelation ~ Received in English) ; (Extract of Friday Sermon 24 June 2011)

O Mohyiuddin, tell them

All praise to Allah and peace be upon His chosen servants. If I have chosen you, then you must listen to My Words and must do My works with love and full cooperation (with one another). Tell the: All praise be to Allah, to whom belongs all this there is on the heavens and the earth, and to whom all glory in the Hereafter. He is All-Wise, All- Aware”.

“Tell them that the Creator is well informed of what they do and then, He informs His servant and the servant of Allah gives the message to you all. Nobody must have the least arrogance in his heart, because arrogance shall destroy your faith. Show humility. And all of you work together with humility. Do not hurt people’s feelings, especially those who are working for My cause; make sure to forget your own selves for the love of Allah”. 

“O My servant, Khalifatullah, you are always with me; all those who are with Me, all those who have Taqwah (fear of Allah) in their hearts, shall be with Me and with you also. Accept the Divine Justice, it is in this way that you shall be in the ranks of the just ones (the pious and the righteous)”. (Creole language; mentioned in the Friday Sermon of 22 February 2013)

On Trials and Rewards for the Believers

“…No worries for the believers who are sincere in the divine manifestation, whom you pray for day and night, who are treasures who shall be known tomorrow as the carrier of the divine light. You along with these people – not the hypocrites among them – shall prosper in this life and the life to come.

Say to them: “O my disciples, bear witness along with Allah’s Prophet. I have come for both your spiritual and physical welfare…”

O Khalifatullah, verily those who ask you to pray for them, Allah has blessed them with faith. They are those in your ranks for the betterment of the future of Islam. O Beloved One, your assembly is such that I your Lord am present to bless you along with My angels. This year shall bring in its wake many blessings from Allah for you and your people.

Say: “O Humanity, heed the message of Allah, for in it you shall find peace and betterment for both your worldly pursuits and that of the next world…”

"O Munir Ahmad Azim, Mohyuddin of this ERA. Your gathering is such that not only prophets but the Holy Prophet (s.a.w) himself is present. The status of your Holy Prophet (s.a.w) is boundless. You are the perfect illustration of this fact, O Azim. Many of your followers have achieved the supreme status of "Qutb" and "Abdaal"

"... Tell these people, you have not come for propaganda or publicity or gaining disciples or devotees. I AM YOURS AND YOU ARE MINE. Where then is the need for publicity? I give not lectures but mixtures for your mental health and moral invigoration. So take my words as medicines necessary for your health..."

“Ya Khalifatullah qul yaa Jamaat Ul Sahih Al Islam! Baqiyya-tullahi khayrul-lakum ‘in-kuntum-Muminiin!...”

(O Khalifatullah, say: O Jamaat Ul Sahih Al Islam! What Allah has kept in store for you is better for you if you are believers…)
