A ‘Luminous Moon’ over Tamil Nadu

Jamaat Ul Sahih Al Islam International has just published a new book entitled “Light-Giving Moon in Tamil Nadu”. Compiled and edited by Mukarram Naib Amir K. Saleem Saheb of the Tamil Nadu Jamaat, the comprehensive report provides a fascinating glimpse into a range of spiritual interactions, Jamaat programmes, and other humanitarian engagements that took place in the State during the historic visit of Imam- Jamaat Ul Sahih Al Islam Hadhrat Muhyi-ud-Din Al Khalifatullah Munir Ahmad Azim Saheb (atba) of Mauritius and the respected and honoured members of the holy family to India in November-December 2018.

The title of the Book “Light-Giving Moon” alludes to a glorious spiritual title vouchsafed to Hadhrat Khalifatullah (atba) in the early days of the Divine Manifestation. In the long, mystical tradition of Islam, ‘Qamaran Munira’ or the “Light-Giving Moon” is a profound spiritual concept, pointing to the exalted spiritual station of the Divine savants who follow, reflect and project the glorious Light of Muhammad (sa) for all humanity in their own times. In the Islamic tradition, perfect followers of the Muhammadan Light are people who aspire to cultivate a direct relationship with one’s Maker and live secluded behind the curtain of Divine intimacy. Such persons are blessed with the direct descent of Divine Knowledge, Divine Revelations, and Divine Words on their persons, and their supplications were/are almost always accepted. Such Divinely-imbued souls are the living exemplars of the Faith and as such, the true spiritual heirs of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (sa). Devout Muslims recognize them as the Pole Star of the Religion and the Way or as the ‘Luminous Moon’ of the Faith.

For close to two decades now, Hadhrat Munir Ahmad Azim Saheb (atba) of Mauritius has been blessed with an abundance of Divine communications and spiritual messages, to a level and scale unheard of in the records of the Jamaat-e-Ahmadiyya since the times of the Promised Massih Hadhrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad (as) in the previous century. Hadhrat Khalifatullah (atba) proclaims that Allah (swt) has bestowed upon him several spiritual titles in this era- Khalifatullah; Mujaddid, Messiah; Muhyi-ud-Din, etc.- and that these spiritual titles point to his Divinely-inspired mission: of reclaiming and revitalizing the enduring message of Tawheed in this new century of the Islamic Era- thereby helping people appreciate the correct spiritual path; strengthening them morally and spiritually in these bewildering times. Like all men of God throughout history, Hadhrat Saheb (atba) preaches Divine Love. Sharing pure Divine messages coming from the Unseen, Hadhrat Saheb (atba) invites people to recognize the advent of his humble self in our midst as an Elect of God and consider the extraordinary possibility of acceding to the Divine countenance in this era as well by following his personal example.

Ever since the time Allah (swt) blessed them with the light of faith to recognize and accept His Messenger of the era and the formal establishment of the Sahih Al Islam community in the State, it has been an earnest wish of the Tamil disciples to meet with the Divinely-inspired and appointed Muhyi-ud-Din of this era. Alhamdulillah, it is this cherished spiritual wish of the sincere believers that has come to fruition with the visit of the Khalifatullah (atba) and the blessed family members. The journey of these blessed messengers took place despite several hurdles-including the devastating Cyclonic Storm Gaja that literally brought the State down on its knees- with the shadow of Divine help and special assistance, making every moment of the two- weeks stay in Tamil Nadu, a spiritually uplifting experience for all those who were in the circle of the Divine Manifestation during those days, Soumma Alhamdulillah.

The Prophecy on ‘Qamaran Munira'

Hadhrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad (as), the Promised Massih and Mahdi of Islam was vouchsafed many glad tidings and Divine Prophecies regarding the brilliant and successful future of his physical and spiritual progeny. The spiritual progeny of the Promised Massih (as), who shall speak with the Holy Spirit, will spread the message of Islam to the ends of the earth and the victory of the Divine Path over all other material ideologies will take shape under their hands. Among the Ahmadi Muslims, there is no doubt or difference on this basic postulate, though the believers differ among themselves on the interpretation and application of this general principle. Among the prophecies vouchsafed to the Promised Massih Hadhrat Ahmad (as) in this regard include the following:  

“He gave me the glad tidings: you shall have a son,
Who shall one day become My darling.
I shall dispel all darkness through this Moon,
And demonstrate the transformation of a world;
It’s not just a glad tiding, but it is the very sustenance of my soul,
Holy is He who disgraced the enemies!”                                             
                                   - [ DURR-E-THAMIN, p. 50; Essence of Islam, Vol. V, p.51 ]

“THE MOON OF PROPHETS SHALL COME, and your task shall be accomplished. A son will be born to you and Divine grace shall be brought closer to you. In other words, he will be the source of Divine Grace…” -[TIRYAQ-UL-QULUB, Ruhani Khaza’in, vol.15, p.220; Essence of Islam, Vol. V, p.51]
