Khalifatullah's Visit to the Island Nations


After a flight of 2hrs 25 minutes through Reunion Island, the Khalifatullah (atba) reached the Comoros (Moroni Airport) at 12.10 (local time). He was warmly welcomed by the members of the Jamaat Ul Sahih Al Islam, Union des Comores as well as the members of the Amila.

¨     The same day, the Khalifatullah (atba) held an important meeting with the officers of the Jamaat, and was briefed on the works done. 
¨    After the Asr prayers, Hadhrat Khalifatullah (atba) went in a village and met with some Imams there as well as the village chief. AlhamdOlillah, the meetings with them were very successful. The Imam invited the Khalifatullah (atba) to lead the Maghrib prayer, and afterwards, the people of the village came to meet the Khalifatullah (atba) with much love. They maximized this special moment to ask a lot of important questions to Huzur (atba) and Alhamdolillah, the Messenger of Allah (atba) gave them such answers which pleased them, and thus in capacity of spiritual leader, the Khalifatullah (atba) explained to them about his mission and invited them to the Jamaat Ul Sahih Al Islam. By the grace of Allah, they were highly pleased to have met with the Messenger of Allah, and they recognized and accepted him as well as integrate the Jamaat. They planned to give the message of the advent of the Khalifatullah as well as our Jamaat to the people of other villages also. Alhamdolillah. May Allah count them among His sincere ones. Amine.

Khalifatullah's visit to the Comoros

Visit to the Comoros and Reunion Islands
By the grace of Allah, and through His divine instructions, I had to go to the Comoros and Reunion Island last week. My presence was required there where our brothers and sisters were waiting since 2013. 

There were important works to do and thus I had to go and by the grace of Allah, there manifested “Laa Ghaliba Illallah” – it is Allah who came out victorious in all aspects of the works done there. And it is really difficult for me to explain how those (spiritual) fruits have been reaped from above which was quite unexpected. Despite the many obstacles all went really well. 

Like I told you in the past, with the advent of a Messenger of Allah, don’t expect that you shall have everything easily. Like Allah (swt) says in the Holy Qur'an:  “Do the people think that they will be left to say, ‘We believe’ and they will not be tried?”  – Allah shall verily try you in all ways possible, through your wealth, children, your own person etc. to see whether you have true faith (Iman) when you said you have believed in Allah and in His Messenger.

Therefore, despite all the obstacles which the destructors have tried to do to restrict our progress – to uproot all flourishing plants that we have planted to stop their growth and so that they don’t reap fruits – by the grace of Allah, Allah did not let them succeed in their plan. They wanted to uproot all those plants to plant them in their own land, as if it is them who sown the seeds, but Allah did not want that the hard worker’s works to go in vain. According to the Divine plan, the hard worker had to reap the fruits of his own labour. Therefore, never become like the gardener who leaves out all wild plants and eliminates the good ones.

By the grace of Allah, after much effort we became highly successful in the Comoros, and last week itself after a warm welcome from our brothers and sisters there, I had the opportunity to deliver my Friday Sermon in the great mosque (in one of the villages). Insha-Allah, our members (of the Jamaat) shall get more details on our website.

Being Good or Bad : Islamic Human Values

Islam has established a number of fundamental rights, valid for all humanity and must be observed and respected under all circumstances. To this end, Islam provides not only legal guarantees but also a very effective moral system. Thus in Islam anything that leads to the well-being of the individual or society is morally good, and everything that is injurious to him/it is morally bad. Islam attaches so much importance to the love of God and love of man that it warns against too much formalism. We read in the Holy Qur’an:  “Virtue does not consist in turning your faces towards the east or the west; virtuous are those who believe in God and the Last Day, the angels and the Book and the prophets, who give for the love of God help to their relatives and to orphans and the needy and travellers, and those who ask, who free captives, who observe prayer, who practice alms-giving, who fulfill the commitment they assume, who show patience in adversity, in hard times and in times of violence. Those are just and fear the Lord.” (2: 178)

We have here a beautiful description of the righteous and God-fearing believer, who obeys to (and implements) the salutary precepts, but without ceasing to gaze upon the love of God and love of as fellow human beings. We have received four precepts:

a) Our faith should be true and sincere.
b) We must be prepared to show it by acts of charity towards our fellow human beings.
c) We must be good citizens.
d) Our soul must be firm and steadfast in all circumstances.

This is the criterion upon which all individual behaviour is judged as good or bad. This criterion is somehow the nucleus around which revolve all the elements that constitute the moral conduct of each person. Before establishing moral precepts, Islam seeks to firmly implant in man’s heart the conviction that he is in constant contact with God who sees him at all times and in all places, that he can hide from the world, but not of Him; he can fool anyone, but not God, he can escape the clutches of anyone except God.

Khalifatullah visits Reunion Island

June 2014: Dawa Highlights

Day One
Alhamdulillah, upon reaching Reunion Island, the Khalifatullah(atba) was warmly welcomed by the Vice-President of the Jamaat. There was a good interaction between the two and our respected brother took Huzur(atba) to refresh himself before the start of the mini-Jalsa Salana (half-day) to be held after Zuhr prayer.

Jalsa Salana Programme:

v  Quran Recitation (with translation) by our brother Mohamed Ahmad.
v  An Opening/Welcoming Speech by the Vice-President of the Jamaat.
v  A speech by the Sadr Siraj Makin of the Reunion Jamaat axed on the role of women of the Jamaat Ul Sahih Al Islam in the modern society.
v  A break of 20 minutes spent in our members & guests from various religious denominations meeting with the Messenger of Allah(atba).

o   Diner & Salat-ul-Maghrib/Esha in congregation.

v  Quran Recitation (with translation) by our brother IsmaĆ«l.
v  Closing Speech by Hazrat Khalifatullah Munir A. Azim(atba).
v  Collective Prayer (duas) & refreshments.

The Mini-Jalsa Salana ended at around 20.45pm, and everybody returned home satisfied and thankful to Allah that they have got the opportunity to meet with Huzur(atba) twice in a year. Alhamdulillah.

Day Two

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