Devotion and Reconciliation in Ramadan

Reconcile with the Estranged 

I advice the Jamaat (Jamaat Ul Sahih Al Islam), wherever my voice reaches, and wherever the Jamaat is hearing this message, to keep watch over the progress of unity, harmony and strong brotherhood. And in this context, the first step to be taken is that from this present Friday to the next Friday, you need to reconcile with the people with whom you had a grudge against because of things relating to this world (mundane matters), egoistical reasons, or personal reasons. 

*** Huzur (atba) made an appeal to all spiritual chiefs and Jamaats in Islam, including the fifth Caliph of the Ahmadiyya Movement and encourage them to drop all form of arrogance and egoistic nature and to reunite together for the sake of Islam and unity as one body of Islam to march forward towards victory (Victory of Islam) ***  You need to make peace with these kinds of person. And neither of you should think on these lines: “Oh, I am the victim in this matter; therefore the other one should be the first to come forward to make peace!”

On the contrary, it becomes more incumbent/ necessary on the victim to make that reconciliation happen first because there is a promise of great rewards for the one who comes forward first for reconciliation. And it shall be a real mischance for the one who is in the right (the victim) to miss the opportunity of this great reward and to let his oppressor obtain the grand reward when the latter approaches the victim first for reconciliation. This is an advice and message which needs to reach the ears of each member of the Jamaat worldwide. It is not easy to make this advice reach everywhere and it is possible that this advice needs to be repeated several times.

‘Learn from Mr. Nelson Mandela’

In the course of his Friday Sermon of 06 December 2013, the Khalifatullah Hadhrat Munir Ahmad Azim (atba) of Mauritius spoke about the demise of the great politician and human rights fighter Mr. Nelson Mandela who died early that morning at the age of 95. The passing away of Nelson Mandela is truly an end of an era for the South African people and for all those who struggle for human rights, individual dignity, inter-racial equality and social peace, national self –determination, solidarity and reconciliation in our troubled world.

Huzur (atba) talked a lot on the good works done by Mr. Mandela and the injustice which happened to him when he was imprisoned for 27 years, and the true forgiving nature he expressed when he was released from prison and fought for the rights of both white and black people to live life on an equal footing – the white people were considered as superior and used to enter buildings through the front door, while the black people did not have such rights and had to go through the back door. He became the first “black” president of South Africa and obtained a Nobel Prize for Peace.
