A Khalifatullah among the ‘AAKHARIIN’

The great prophecies regarding the Second Manifestation of the Holy Prophet of Islam (sa) appearing among the “Aakhariin have been fulfilled at one level with the appearance of the Promised Massih/Khalifatullah Hadhrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad (as) of Qadian in the last century. Till the appearance of a Divine Elect as a Khalifatullah who shall speak with the help of the Rooh-ul-Qudus, Ahmadis have been advised by the Promised Massih (as) (in Al Wassiyat) to remain united under an elected leadership and accordingly, the Khilafat-e- Ahmadiyya was established. Now that in the new century of Islam, Allah (twa) has raised His own Khalifa in the personhood of Hadhrat Munir Ahmad Azim Sahib (atba) of Mauritius, there is no scope for a man-elected Khalifa to play a spiritual role. Instead of propagating Khatame Massih Maoud to continue with the mundane Khilafat system within and thereby  commanding Allah to do as per their liking, the scholars and members of the Jamaat-e- Ahmadiyya would do well to introspect, show spiritual humility and follow the new Divine Messenger.        

In his Friday Sermon of 06 September 2013, the Khalifatullah Hadhrat Munir Ahmad Azim Sahib (atba) of Mauritius provides a profoundly illuminating commentary on the continuity of Divine guidance in Islam in the Later Days. 

Read the extracts from the Friday Sermon:

“And He will raise him from among others of them who have not yet joined the first (ones). He is the Mighty, the Wise.” (62: 4)

The Case against War on Syria

The US President, Barak H. Obama, is currently seeking domestic Congressional endorsement and international political support to legitimate his decision to invade Syria. The US war against Syria has the strategic support of Israel, which shares the goal of containing Iran and the Hizb-Allah of Lebanon, which are viewed as the last threat to Israel’s national security interests in the wider Middle East. As Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya and now Syria come under external attacks one after the other, the unfolding humanitarian disaster it represents for the common Muslim peoples is a matter of grave concern. The recent reports about the usage of chemical weapons in the on-going Syrian civil war provide the perfect pretext for the planned invasion. The unilateral intervention, without sufficient approval from the broader international community and the UN Security Council in particular, will be a naked violation of the rules and principles of international law. In the name of protecting the people, the US military intervention will only repeat the tragic history of destruction of the very edifice of yet another Muslim society.  

Ambassador Kanwal Sibal, India’s former Foreign Secretary and a distinguished scholar of international affairs, in his article “Two-faced in West Asia”, published in The Hindu (New Delhi), September 4, 2013, comments upon the US case for intervening in Syria aslegally weak, internationally divisive and morally hollow”. For the benefit of our readers, we reproduce the article below:

A Message to All Seekers of Truth

Whenever a Divine Messenger is raised in the world, it represents a spiritual test for all believers. To re-examine the validity of one’s father’s traditions and other inherited notions of belief systems requires a full commitment to be aware of the larger truth of the Divine reality. A matching humility of the heart to accept and follow the narrow and straight path of the Divine as one finds it is also necessary. Likewise, a courageous spirit to face the world with one’s innate conscience and the confidence of one’s convictions rooted in the sublime feeling of being mindful of Allah (twa) in all of one’s deeds constitute the identity of the new believer. Thus, to accept a Divine Reformer in a new era often means to put Allah (twa) and His judgement over all our ‘comfort zones’ of family and friends, relatives and brothers in faith. To be on the vanguard of creating a new world by following the Divine servant requires one to believe that Divine guidance is true guidance.  

Muslims, including the Ahmadis, today face this challenge of spirituality as Allah (twa) has raised His Messenger in the personhood of the Khalifatullah Hadhrat Munir Ahmad Azim Sahib (atba) of Mauritius in the new century of Islam. It is for them to shun the arrogance of intellectualism and the hubris of special claims of Divine privileges and to adjust their spiritual doctrines and theological understandings to match step with the times of a Divine Messenger. In August 2013, some members of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community in Kerala followed their innermost spiritual convictions and accepted the new Mujaddid of the era, leaving aside their previous association with the man-elected Khilafat system in the Jamaat-e- Ahmadiyya.

In a special Message issued on the occasion of the new Bai’ats on Saturday, August 10, 2013 the Khalifatullah (atba) reflects upon the empirical conditions in the Jamaat-e- Ahmadiyya that has necessitated the raising of a Divine Reformer as per Sunnat Allah (Divine practice) and also on the trials and rewards that await those who follow true Divine Guidance.

‘Maurice Under Threat of An Epidemic’

"He is the Knower of the unseen, and He does not grant anyone ascendancy over His domain of the unseen. Except him whom He chooses as His Messenger."
- The Holy Qur'an, 72: 27-28.
The Khalifatullah Hadhrat Munir Ahmad Azim Sahib (atba) of Mauritius has received a spécial Divine Message in the French language (on  Friday August 30, 2013 at 9.05 pm) containing intimations about the out-break of an epidemic in Maurice. [Inset: “The First War of the Balkans: Cholera Epidemic”-this colour engraving is from the cover of Le Petit Journal, published in Paris, December 1912. The graphic image of Death with his scythe communicates the news that a cholera epidemic has begun. The artist, who is unknown, depicts the flying figure of Death cutting down a river of humanity in a single stroke).

The Divine révélation has come at a period of time when two airport employees died in the aftermath of leptospirosis, an infectious disease transmitted by rodents.

What is leptospirosis?

It is a bacterial infection caused by leptospirosis. In most parts of the world, small mammals (rats, mice etc.) are presumed to be its wild reservoir. Their urine is almost always the direct or indirect source of human infections.

In case of late diagnosis it causes kidney failure, which can result in death.

Symptoms of leptospirosis: Its symptoms can be confused with flu or gastroenteritis as it is manifested by high fever, vomiting, severe headache, muscle aches, diarrhoea. And, to an advanced stage causing renal and hepatic problems.

It is instructive to note that only recently, on August 15, 2013, the Khalifatullah (atba) spoke about the EVENTFUL year that 2013 has turned out to be in many, different ways: coups d’état, wars, political strategic plans against Muslim countries and consequently the continuous war between Muslim brothers. We can paint a whole picture of massacres in our today’s society. What is very important is that the humble servant of Allah has already warned the world about these events years ago and even at the end of 2012. Hadhrat Khalifatullah (atba) has told very clearly that Mauritius and the neighbouring islands also will not be spared.
