'Duah': Invocations to Allah- XIV

Alhamdulillah, by the grace of Allah, I continue today the 14th part of my series of sermons on the subject of “duahs” (invocations to Allah). Today I present before you the duahs which Allah revealed to me before and after He raised me as His chosen one, when I was still in the Jamaat Ahmadiyya and also when I was expelled from the Nizam-e-Jamaat on the 1st January 2001. That fateful unforgettable year, on the 7th of January I reached the age of forty, and all that occurred in the realm of spirituality, along with all the persecutions and mockeries were life-changing.

Important Dream at the Beginning of the new Islamic Era

This reminds me of a great dream I had at the beginning of the new 15th Century Hijri, one year later in November 1981. At that time, I was quite young and was clueless about the Hijri Calendar and that a new century was opening for me, as a blessing but also as a lifelong struggle for the sake of Allah. 

I dreamt that four great personalities in white, being very handsome with beautiful beards and illuminating faces came to my parental house, and sat on the sofas which were of different colours. They came with very important news about my life, what shall happen to me in the future, but what I clearly remember after all these years [for I did not keep any written records of my dreams back then] is that they foretold about the great hurdles that I would have to go through in my life but that I must not worry because Allah will remove all these hurdles and be with me. Since I had seen that dream, I was very shaken and panicked and I was hesitant to relate this to anybody. After finally relating it to a good and well-respected Muslim neighbour of mine who had deep affection for me, the latter was awestruck by what I told him and considered this as a great dream and that I was one of the favoured people of Allah. He told me that was why he liked me very much. He encouraged me to relate that dream to my parents. Being worried by what I told her, my mother told me to give away a Sadqua, and to pray [which I did]. As for my father, upon hearing about the dream, he smiled at me, and gave me such comfort that all my worries flew away instantly. He told me that it was indeed a great dream that I had seen, but why must I worry because had not these personalities [i.e. the angels] say that Allah will always be with me? 

So, this was one of the most important dream I had in my youth, prior to being raised as God’s Servant. And Allah kept giving me true dreams and visions, which at that time I could not understand, but little by little when His Divine Manifestation touched me in a way like never before, when I was nearing the age of forty, Allah showed great love and helped me in great ways just like He promised, despite the attacks on my honour and dignity as a Caller to Allah [Dai-Illallah], as a worker and missionary of Islam Ahmadiyyat. During these hard times with the evil plots of a so-called [now ex] Amir along with the people around him, Allah revealed to me many duahs as a comfort to my soul.

'Nizam-e-Jamaat': Questioning Injustice

In his Friday Sermon of 28 June 2019 ~24 Shawwal 1440 AH, Hadhrat Imam Muhyi-ud-Din Al Khalifatullah Munir Ahmad Azim Saheb (atba) of Mauritius spoke comprehensively on the human responsibility to respect and abide by Divine commandments at all times, especially in the times of a Divinely-raised messenger among them. Dereliction of duty in responding to the Divine Will and wisdom behind the lofty Message, particularly our arrogance and hubris in ridiculing the Messenger to the extend of 'shooting'/expelling him from our midst would bring in Divine punishment in unexpected ways. Revolting against the Divine Gift of a Prophet/ Messenger/ Reformer/ Inviter to the sublime path of Renewal in the name of blind veneration of one's own priests and chiefs will inexorably and inevitably corrupt an entire community's spiritual future.  

Drawing on his own searing personal experiences of going through blatantly  unfair treatment, social boycott, loss of livelihood and much injustice at the hands of the leadership ('Nizam-e-Jamaat') of the 'mainstream' Ahmadiyya community (the Jamaat-e-Ahmadiyya)- that he served with dignity and distinction for a decade and more, Imam Muhyi-ud-Din (atba) speaks to remind the truth to the 'powers' that be, by asking fundamental questions on their very spiritual identity and their institutional malpractices: the nature and character of their 'faith'; sense of fairness and justice; respect for Islamic laws on employment-related obligations; non-compliance with the rule of law in the country; failure to settle termination benefits under labour law; their empty rhetoric on 'love for all, hatred for none', etc. 

Despite their ego-massaging lofty capital-city building projects in England these days, deep- down, the Nizam-e-Jamaat knows that their empire of caliph worshipping/ unquestioned authority of the leadership over the common Ahmadis is facing tumultuous times, especially with Allah (swt) raising a 'Saviour'/ Liberator/ 'Messiah'/ 'Mujaddid' for the enslaved Ahmadis in our times. With the Jamaat Ul Sahih Al Islam making sure progress in India and elsewhere, the Nizam-e-Jamaat-e-Ahmadiyya is indulging in a PR-exercise of 'addressing' long-standing grievances against the high-handedness of officials amongst Mauritius Ahmadis. Speaking against that backdrop, Hadhrat Khalifatullah (atba) also unveils for the first time a very important document that throws much light on the unIslamic ways and unjust practices of the Nizam-e-Jamaat-e-Ahmadiyya in our times.      

Read the Friday Sermon Below: 

The Divine Law v/s the Law of Man

Today people are giving their idols way much importance than the Divine Law. It is man-made laws that are destroying life on earth and destroying the divine teachings. And man has established his laws so forcefully that the one who does not show any obedience to them [i.e. the man-made laws and instructions], therefore, such people go to the extent of taking sanctions against those who do not follow their laws.

When divine laws are being replaced by man-made laws, the world is paying the consequences of this waywardness. Today when man has drifted away from divine laws and is giving much more importance to the laws of man, look what is happening in the world, in a country, in a society, in a Jamaat, in a family, in your environment.

Those who take themselves as scholars/ savants/ intelligent people, they are putting their own ideas and opinions forward and they have pushed aside the divine laws, and unfortunately the people who are following them are going towards their own lost, and their fear of God has disappeared. Instead fear for their Guru (Chief/ Leader) has gripped their hearts, and this is verily what has annihilated faith for the Almighty in the hearts of these people.

They start fearing man more than the Creator. All that they do, they do it only to reap the pleasure of their Guru, in their deeds and works, and there is nothing that they do to reap the pleasure of Allah. That is why, wherever you look, there is no peace, and evil has surfaced on earth. It is then that Allah (swt) manifests His wrath to wake up the consciousness of man (i.e. to make man realise his mistakes/ misdeeds) and make him understand that there is only one God.

Thus, only the Law of Allah (swt) can ever stop this deterioration in our daily life. Divine Law has proved itself more than 1400 years ago and is still proving itself right with the advent of an Envoy of God with the Holy Spirit (Ruh’il Quddus) to bring back all people to the unicity of God, on the right path and to revive the true teachings of God.

18 Years: Phases of A Spiritual Journey

In his opening speech at the Tamil Nadu State Jalsa Salana at Tenkasi on Sunday, 25 November 2018, Imam-Jamaat Ul Sahih Al Islam International, Hadhrat Muhyi-ud-Din Al Khalifatullah Munir Ahmad Azim Saheb (atba) of Mauritius, gave an illuminating discourse on the different trajectories of the Divine Manifestation of the Age over the last 18 years or so. These spiritual ruminations contain an intensely personal reclamation of an important phase- of searing trials and life-altering experiences- in the life of this recipient of Divine revelations- the humble Elect and Servant of God- that he has had to under-go at the hands of the reigning elites in the Nizam-e-Jamaat-e-Ahmadiyya in Mauritius and beyond. The speech also gives a glimpse into subsequent events within the life-world of the Divine manifestation, both in the times of Jamaat-e-Ahmadiyya Al Mouslemeen and later, with the establishment of the Jamaat Ul Sahih Al Islam  in 2008. As such, the discourse is compulsory reading for all true seekers of Divine verities in our times. At a time when the Jamaat Ul Sahih Al Islam is on an expanding curve of wider popular recognition and acceptance in India and also internationally, the challenges of the past provide reassuring contentment for true believers in the signs of Allah that indeed the promise of Allah (swt) is ever true; that Allah (swt) protects and safeguards His chosen servants amidst all trials and tribulations and that the Divine mission and its caravan will continue its incredible journey through different orbits destined for it under the Holy Will of God, Insha Allah, Aameen.  

Read the Opening Speech Below: 

The Divine Manifestation of the Age 

And say, ‘Truth has come, and falsehood has perished. Indeed falsehood, [by its nature], is ever perishing/bound to perish’.” (Al-Isra, 17: 82).

By the grace of Allah, it has been 10 years now since the creation of the Jamaat Ul Sahih Al Islam under divine instructions, and which later on has been legally registered on the 1st Rabi-ul-Awwal 1429 AH (Hijri), on the 10th of March 2008 C.E. We held our first Jumu’ah in Mauritius under our new identity bestowed to us by Allah on the 12th Rabi’ul Awwal of the Islamic year 1429 (Hijri). This is indeed an immense favour and blessings from Allah, that He keeps on showering His rain of grace and blessings and the wind of His mercy has swept us along with it and Alhamdulillah, Allah has enabled His Jamaat – Jamaat Ul Sahih Al Islam – to grow in spirituality and number over all these years and that blessed tree of Allah has spread its branches in many directions in the world, and reaching also India.

Social Boycott in the Ahmadiyya Community

The Jamaat Ul Sahih Al Islam International has just published a new book in Malayalam, entitled Boycott? Or, No Boycott?’. Originally written by Hadhrat Imam Muhyi-ud-Din Al Khalifatullah Munir Ahmad Azim Saheb (atba) of Mauritius, the present Malayalam translation is by Mukarram Amir Jamaluddin Raother Saheb of Mathra. Written almost five years ago, the Book remains as relevant and topical as ever, discussing the official policy of of the Nizam-e-Jamaat-e-Ahmadiyya vis-a-vis the Divine Manifestation in Mauritius, especially the arrogant institutional decision by the Nizam-e-Jamaat leadership to socially boycott all those who believe or support Hadhrat Munir Saheb (atba) -a Muslim believer who claims he is a recipient of Divine messages in our times.

The Boycott Policy calls for profound spiritual reflections on the part of common Ahmadis as it touches upon, and has grave implications for, their foundational beliefs and personal convictions. Do they plan to behave unjustly and arrogantly in the times of a Divine Elect among them? As the Jamaat-e-Ahmadiyya is premised on the continuity of Divine revelations within the Muslim Ummah in every era, it is astonishingly ironical to see how the Nizamis seek to dispute God’s messages in this era, with no authority to do so. How can they be so deluded when they can still read the Qur’an?

Indeed, the Holy Qur’an advices humility, openness, caution and wisdom- rather than expulsion and boycott induced by power and hubris- to people who encounter God’s servants in their midst, by referring to the sojourn of Moses (as) among the Pharoah’s people:

How can you expel a man just for saying, ‘My Lord is Allah,’? He has brought you clear signs from your Lord- if he is a liar, on his own head be it- and if he is truthful, then at least some of what he has threatened will happen to you. Allah does not guide any rebellious, outrageous liar. 

My people, as masters in the land you have the power today, but who will help us from the punishment of Allah if it comes upon us?” (40: 29-30)

Reproduced below is the text of the Introduction to the Malayalam Translation:

The present book entitled ‘Boycott? Or, No Boycott?’, written by Hadhrat Imam Muhyi-ud-Din Al Khalifatullah Munir Ahmad Azim Saheb (atba) of Mauritius in 2014, makes an important contribution to the debates around the anti-Islamic policy of “social boycott” being aggressively implemented by the Nizam-e-Jamaat-e-Ahmadiyya in recent times. The profound forensic examination and clinical arguments of Hadhrat Khalifatullah (atba), unravelling the roots and branches of this anti-human policy of the Jamaat-e-Ahmadiyya, is compulsory reading for all Ahmadi Muslims who care about their foundational beliefs and the ‘directions’ of their Jamaat in recent times.

'No Compulsion in Religion', says Qur'an

Islam's normative injunctions are all designed to foster freedom and justice and to promote a just social order. Its moral universe is informed by the Living Presence of Allah (swt), to whom people are responsible individually and collectively as a group- sect, religion, tribe, clan, nation, community, etc. - and are bound to account for their acts and omissions on the Day of Judgement. Several verses in the Qur'an affirms the inherent freedom of choice in people: "Had your Lord willed, all the people on earth would have believed. So can you (Prophet) compel people to believe? It is not for a soul to believe , save by God's Leave" (10: 99-100). 'Say, Now the truth has come from you Lord: let those who wish to believe in it do so, and let those those who wish to reject it do so' (18: 30).

Life in Arabia during the Holy Prophet's time also produced within its varied contingencies complex questions of freedom of choice in faith matters. Some of the Muslim parents had a dilemma: whether to force their children to join the then nascent Muslim community; or to respect the children's choice of joining their foster- parents' clan (Jewish tribe- Banu Nadir that was leaving from Madinah and some also wishing to join Christian merchants going to Syria). It might seem astonishing to some; but the Qur'anic verse-"There is no compulsion in religion" (2: 257) was  originally revealed to ensure the freedom of choice of the people who wished to leave Islam against the wishes of their Muslim families!

Even as Islam commands freedom of conscience and respects the right of people to make choices, it also allows resistance to oppression and injustice and to wage wars in self-defence in compelling political circumstances. What is not required or unjustified in general conditions of life, may gain validity of law and practice in exceptional circumstances. Necessity, proportionality, fairness and even-handed dealings are central to Islamic ethics, and the 'text' of moral injunctions need to be seen in the 'context' of the evolving circumstances of the Muslim life. Muslim Ulema who celebrate the 'cult of sword' in the name of Jihad/preaching of Islam are grossly misguided in reading the text without knowing its context. Their ill-considered views are detrimental to the fair name and legacy of Islam as a religion that appeals to human conscience and secular reasoning in equal measure. In his first Friday Sermon of the New Year- on 5th January 2018, Hadhrat Khalifatullah (atba) expounds profoundly on freedom of choice from a Qur'anic perspective and corrects the doctrinal mistakes of the Muslim Ulema on this vital question.

Asad Shah Murder and the Jamaat-e-Ahmadiyya

The Murder of Asad Shah Sahib 

Before ending my sermon today (Khutba Jumu’ah), I would like to say few words on Syead Asadul Islam Shah Sahib who was murdered March 24 last. He was born in Rabwah on 31 January 1976 (he just reached his 40 years) and he was the son of Syead Naeem Shah who was a Pakistani. Asad Shah Sahib did his FSc at the Nusrat Jahan Academy in Rabwah and his family went to establish in Glasgow, Scotland in 1998. He had a business which he ran and was regular in his financial contribution in the Jamaat (Ahmadiyya), and I have even learnt that he was in Wassiyat and that according to the Khuddam-ul-Ahmadiyya, he was regular in Ijtema and Jummah.

Motive Behind the Murder

That imbecile who stabbed and killed him 30 times with a kitchen knife was 32 years old Tanveer Ahmad, an extremist who worked as Taxi driver. (Inset on the right: first pictures of the accused Tanveer, who made a public statement on his responsibility for the murder). He confessed to killing Asad Shah Sahib not because he wished the Christians Happy Easter, but he confessed during his private hearing that he killed Asad Shah Sahib because he proclaimed to be a prophet and thus did not show any respect to prophet Muhammad (pbuh).

The newspapers (the media in general) have seized this opportunity to state that it was because of his wishing his fellow Christian citizens that a Muslim of another sect came to kill him. For the moment, Tanveer Ahmad has appeared twice in the High Court, the first at the end of March and the second time on 05 April 2016 wherein he confessed to killing Asad Shah Sahib. He moreover instructed his lawyer, John Rafferty to make an official statement on 06 April 2016 to clarify his real reasons behind the murder, the main cause being he declared himself to be a prophet. There are other details which have been mentioned in that statement to justify his crime.

Murder for 'Blasphemy' in Islam?

In other words, he targeted the Jamaat Ahmadiyya whereby according to his line of thoughts, as well as those of the other fanatical Mullahs of the group Khatme Nabuwwat’ and the others from the Anti-Ahmadiyya circles, prophets cannot come after the Holy Prophet Hazrat Muhammad (pbuh). And thus these people have published declarations that Asad Shah Sahib was a false prophet and they even posted videos online in November 2014 to denounce that he was a false prophet. And their websites also are filled with hatred against Islam Ahmadiyyat. For them, we Ahmadis are out of the pale of Islam.

God Forbid! Is that the teaching of Islam? Is that what Allah (swt) and His Messenger (pbuh) have taught you? If he has declared himself to be a prophet and if he is false (in his claim), then he is accountable for that claim/ proclamation to Allah alone. Is that the way of a good Muslim (to kill)? When have they receive the patent to judge the faith of others. Do you give the guarantee that you are yourselves on the right path and that your faith is firm, that your belief in the teachings of Islam is as solid as concrete? Is that barbarous deed committed truly Islamic?

Through their barbaric actions, they are depicting a very wrong image of the teachings of Islam. It is those kinds of extremists who are committing anti-Islam deeds, and are attacking and killing innocent people in various countries. Is that the teaching of Islam? 

Are you taking yourselves as greater judge than Allah (swt)? Allah (swt) have put it clear in the Quran that it is He alone who knows the hearts of His creatures, His servants, and that the domain of faith and to judge faith belongs only to Him, not to others who are declaring and judging people as non-Muslims. Verily, through their twisted and wicked minds, they are trampling all the more the true teachings of Islam.

15 Years of Divine Manifestation

On this festive day of New Year 2016, I offer a prayer to the Creator of the universe for all mankind: 

“O my God, 
You were with us and You strove for us even before we do so with ourselves; also be with us since we are as You were with us even before our existence! 
Clothe us with Benevolence (Lutfika) and come to us with Your love (Atfika) and Your Majesty (Janaabika). 
Bring out of our heart the darkness of self-will and let shine in our secret (Sirr) the light of surrender to You! 
Make us contemplate the excellence of Your choices so that what You demand and what You choose for us may become more beloved to us than the choices we could possibly make for ourselves. Ameen!”

Today January 1, it’s been 15 years since the late 4th Caliph of the Ahmadiyya movement based himself on a report of hatred and jealousy of his ex so-called Amir to believe that two people were creating fitna (disorder) in the Ahmadiyya movement in Mauritius and that the system of Khilafat (Caliphate) was in danger. And then, without listening to our version mainly on divine revelation which I was receiving at the time, the fourth Caliph with such arrogance humiliated us and expelled from the Nizam-e-Jamaat (administration of the Jamaat) and in addition to that, he had not hesitated to send a curse (Lannat) on us, predicting our end. He qualified this end as a tragic and horrible end; that we would have a fearful destiny. 

As Allah told me afterwards, it was a Mubahila - a wish/ prayer for our misfortune and our end – which the fourth caliph had done, from the tone of his writings which he dictated through the Additional Vakilut-Tabshir Majid Tahir. In a vision (Kashf), Allah (swt) made it very clear to me that it was indeed a Mubahila which the fourth Caliph had done and I saw the Hand of Allah crush the letter (of Mubahila) in question and throw it in the dustbin. The 4th Caliph had not realized his mistake and had failed to control his ego, and then with all his arrogance, he told us to go and form our separate Jamaat, and that when two people will go this shall not make the weight against the millions of people who will join the Ahmadiyya movement.

Huzur (atba) said that recently an Ahmadi told him that they (the Ahmadis of Mauritius) needed him (meaning that he is a vital asset for the Jamaat of the Promised Messiah), and to return to the Ahmadiyya Muslim Association. Huzur (atba) said that he never left the Ahmadiyya Muslim Association. It was never his wish to do so. 

Indeed, it was those at the head who plotted to expel him from the Jamaat, the Nizam-e-Jamaat. Indeed, see how the plan of Allah unfolded. The 4th Caliph “ordained” the both of them (that is, Hazrat Khalifatullah Munir A. Azim (atba) and Zafrullah Domun Saheb) to go form their own separate Jamaat. In a way, they both obeyed the Khalifat-ul-Massih; it is them who showed obedience whilst the other Ahmadis are still showing themselves disobedient. All in all, the will of Allah prevailed in all circumstances.

Khalifatul Massih V as "Ummati Nabi" ?

The Promised Messiah (as) received the status of Ummati Nabi (subordinate prophet) and of Khatam-ul-Khulafa (Seal of the Caliphs). It’s true that it is only in the Jamaat of Hazrat Massih Ma’ud (as) that Allah (swt) will raise subordinate (Ummati) prophets. How will we know how Allah (swt) shall choose this kind of subordinate prophet, His prophet?

It is of course, through DIVINE REVELATION and not through the tongues of man (i.e. elected by man) that this humble servant of Allah shall have to proclaim himself officially, affirming that Allah alone has raised him as Ummati Nabi and after his death, well-guided Khulafa shall take over his mission. But as it is Sunnat Allah (the way of Allah), whenever the situation deteriorates and the divine teachings are trampled to dust, and dynasties take over, definitely Allah will raise His very own Khalifa (without the help and election of any creature) in the same Jamaat of Hazrat Massih Ma’ud (as) and in the Ummah of Hazrat Muhammad (pbuh) as His prophet (an Ummati Nabi) and having the same titles and grades as the Promised Messiah (as) in that which he also shall be a Khatam-ul-khulafa, i.e. all other subordinate prophets after him shall be from his own Jamaat and identity.

Indeed years and years have gone by and I am curious to know if the Khalifat-ul-Massih Hazrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad has proclaimed himself officially to the status of Ummati Nabi and Khatam-ul-Khulafa in this era?

Hence Allah (swt) has taught us in various verses of the Holy Quran, for example: in Surah Al-Anam:

“O you assembly of jinn and mankind! Did not there come to you messengers from amongst you, reciting unto you My verses and warning you of the meeting of this day of yours?” They will say: “We bear witness against ourselves”. It was the life of this world that deceived them. And they will bear witness against themselves that they were disbelievers. (6: 131)

The prophets (Nabiyyuun) come to bring back the glory and true value of the divine instructions to humankind so as to enable them to pave their way towards spirituality which they have completely forgotten or which they have trampled to dust. A prophet’s (God’s chosen one) duty is to bring people of all nations throughout the whole world back to the Tawheed (unity of God) and convince them that the day is coming soon that they shall have to present themselves in front of Allah (swt). The Holy Quran has clearly explained this to us that whenever the religious leaders started being corrupted and they wanted people to give them much more importance than Allah, the Sovereign of all worlds, behaving as if they are gods on earth, therefore Allah sees the need to send His very own Khalifa (representative). For example Allah (swt) says in the Holy Quran:

“And surely, many do lead mankind astray by their own desires through lack of knowledge. Certainly your Lord knows best the transgressors.” (6: 120)

 “They look their rabbis and their monks and Jesus, son of Mary to be their Lords besides Allah. (9: 31)

Many people are led astray by their honouring their chiefs to the rank of God, taking them as their idols. These people follow only the instructions coming from their idols, their leaders even if these instructions are clearly contrary to the divine commandments. Hence, this situation will never be corrected unless divine revelation comes to clear out the misunderstandings and wrong interpretations of the Book of Allah and the writings of His Messengers. Alas, these chiefs mislead the people just to satisfy their personal desires and thirst for power. These chiefs are not like those whom Allah have safeguarded and honoured to the status of Ummati Nabi and Khatam-ul-KhulafaIndeed, these chiefs are devoid of divine guidance and revelation coming from Allah. And whenever the subordinate non-law bearing prophets come to guide them to the right path, they turn a deaf ear to his call and label him a madman and liar.

Perception of Truth in a Web of Lies

Allah took away their light, and left them in utter darkness - (so that) they do not see. (They are) Deaf, dumb (and) blind, so they will not turn back. (2: 18-19). 

These days, what are we hearing?! Basharat Naveed is posing himself as an innocent little boy, as if he never said what he said…!!! And now he seeks to know who spread that dirty talk in his stead! 

Because, the poor guy, he never said anything, but he does not know that we have “THE STRONG EVIDENCE” against him. Therefore, he now requests that that particular person be presented before him, to confront him, as if he does not know the individual in question! Now, it is for us to bring that person before him. He has a mandate to boycott us, not bidding us Salam, and not to invite us, and now he is inviting us to bring that person to him. Therefore, he shall sit in his office chair (like a good boy) and it is now for us to come to Dar-us-Salam to present to him the person.

After refuting him on the bad words he uttered, now he is ready to accept that the deed done (in the UK) was a NOBLE ACTION and he went as far as to say: “May Allah reward you for your good act.”  He is trying to free himself from his own web of lies. Like Allah says in the Quran: They hide (their evil intentions and deeds) from the people, but they cannot hide (them) from Allah.” He did not think that when he said these words with someone, that Allah was not present between them, and he verily used such words which has not pleased Allah at all. Mullahs like Basharat Naveed are found in the same categories of imbeciles who havetrampled the teachings of the Promised Messiah to dust”; not only the teachings of the Promised Messiah (as) but that also of the Quran (the verses therein) and also the sayings of the noble prophet Hazrat Muhammad (pbuh). They have trampled all these teachings to dust.

If nowadays you are seeing these types of Mullahs in the Jamaat of the Promised Messiah (as), then you must realise how the teachings of the Jamaat of the Promised Messiah (as) have been flouted. That is why Allah (swt) has raised this humble servant as His Khalifatullah, and Muhyi-ud-Din to do a good cleaning up and to revive the true teachings (of Islam). 

But unfortunately, when Allah (swt) sent His light on earth, in this era, instead of receiving light from which they can illumine themselves, the light blinds them (makes them lose their sight). They do not see the divine light and thus in their imbecility, they talk nonsense.

Falling Prey to the Lure of the World

Knowledge comes from Allah

I thank my Rab that He has given me by His immense grace the golden opportunity to continue the sermon which I started last Friday, and verily without the grace, favour and Ilm (Knowledge) of my creator, I could not have addressed you today on this subject. Indeed the blessings and favours of my Rab is like a never-ending ocean which immerge out of my heart to call out to you to purify your hearts in it, to let them be full of the light of Allah which descends upon each one of you so that you also may benefit from this extraordinary light and blessings. Insha-Allah.

Indeed without the help and guidance of Allah, without His support and tutoring and His increasing my knowledge to carry on this noble work, nothing would have been possible. It is really difficult to explain to people how my Rab helps me and guides me, how He has chosen me in this era as His Khalifa, not elected by men, but chosen by Allah Himself. So I thank again my Rab and I continue on the same topic of my sermon of last Friday.

Prophet's Wisdom

Our beloved prophet (pbuh) is reported to have said: “Do not be envious of one another; do not inflate prices by overbidding against one another; do not hate one another; do not turn away from one another; do not enter into commercial transaction when others have entered into that (transaction); but be you, O slaves of Allah, as brothers. A Muslim is a brother of another Muslim; he neither oppresses him, nor does he lie to him, nor does he look down upon or humiliate him. Piety (Taqwa) is here (and he pointed to his chest three times). It is evil enough for a Muslim to humiliate his brother. All things of a Muslim are sacred for his brother-in-faith: his blood, his property, and his honour.(Muslim)

 ...and the Ahmadiyya condition today

It is very strange that despite him mentioning this to his companions and Ummah, these very instructions being in both Quran and Sunnah, despite being Muslims, especially the so-called defenders of Islam and Ahmadiyyat they do not follow these clear instructions and commandments. The Jamaat Ahmadiyya who should have been a model for the other Muslims have also fallen prey to the unislamic ways, just like the other Muslims fell prey to the allures of the worldly and unislamic way of life. It is my prayer that my sincere disciples and followers do not fall prey to the traps of the satans who lurk in the alleys of Islam to try to deviate them from the right path and to separate them from their brothers and sisters in faith. May Allah protect you all from this, Ameen.

The Dynamics of Renewal and Expulsion

In the Jamaat Ahmadiyya, one of the spiritual teachings that the Khulafatul Massih have always defended is the continuity of Divine revelations and the advent of Divine Reformers till the Day of Judgment. Allah has kept the door open for revelation and Allah will appoint Guides/ Khulafa through revelation to guide this Jamaat and humanity whenever and wherever Allah chooses as the need arises. We have already documented many statements from the Promised Massih (as) and also that of the Musleh Moaud Hadhrat Khalifa Sani (ra), whereby they have expressly endorsed this blessed hope about the continuity of Divine Reformers and other promised spiritual sons in the Din-e-Islam till the Last Days. (For a list of Blog articles chronicling and commenting on such speeches and references from the writings and statements of the Jamaat-e-Ahmadiyya, check here: 1234567891011121314161718 ). 

In a speech delivered at Sydney, Australia in the 1990’s, Hazrat Khalifatul Masih IV has given a very vivid picture of how reform takes place within religious communities and what are its consequences. One of the sure trajectories of religious renewal is the trials and oppositions a Reformer will have to face within his own community and people when he becomes a servant of Allah and bring to the people the mercy of Divine Messages. The sermon entitled The Philosophy of the Revival of Religion states:

…………….Every fair minded person can see from this comparison that the Ahmadiyya view-point is based on the history of religions while the philosophy of its opponents is mythical and contradicts the history of religious revival. We learn from history that everyone appointed by God was faced with a storm of opposition. All prophets came with the message of truth and eternal life but were opposed by those who preferred falsehood to truth, and spiritual death to spiritual life. This indeed is the process of the birth of religions. When impurities and corruption crept into religions, their rebirth also took the same course. The reformers sent by God also suffered as the prophets had suffered. Whenever the Almighty chose to revive a nation spiritually, it split into two groups-those who saw the truth and those who opposed it. And neither group ever changed its demonstrated attitude. The Holy Quran describes this oft repeated cycle in a most effective and moving manner. A study of the Holy Quran shows that:

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…)
