Friday Sermon – Khalifatul Masih V – Mirza Masroor Ahmad – Year 2016

I bear witness that there is none worthy of worship except God and I bear witness that Muhammad (saw) is His Servant and Messenger. After this I seek refuge with Allah, from Satan, the accursed. In the name of Allah, the Gracious, the Merciful. All praise belongs to Allah, Lord of all the worlds.

The Gracious, the Merciful. Master of the Day of Judgment. Thee alone do we worship and Thee alone do we implore for help. Guide us in the right path; The path of those on whom Thou hast bestowed Thy blessings, those who have not incurred Thy displeasure, and those who have not gone astray.

Ever since the claim of the Promised Messiah (as) and establishing his community, our Muslim opponents continually raise objections against the Promised Messiah and his followers, that since the Promised Messiah (as) has called himself a prophet or

By us accepting him as a prophet, we refute the concept of the seal of all the prophets. The fact of the matter is, we know this, that this is an entirely erroneous assertion against us. We believe in the finality of the Holy Prophet (saw), according to the teachings of

The Promised Messiah (as), just as much as other Muslims, if not more, We demonstrate our belief in the concept of Khatam-e-Nabuwwat with our actions. Our hearts are filled with the love of the Holy Prophet (saw) and we are busy spreading in the world, the religion brought by the Holy Prophet (saw) than

The other Muslim sects who express this and profess their belief in it. Other Muslims do not even appreciate the one millionth of the true status of the Holy Prophet (saw) as we Ahamdis do, because of the guidance and the teachings of the Promised Messiah (as)

Which he has given to us by the grace of God Almighty. In any case, making Khatam-e-Nabuwwat as the bone of contention, other Muslims have always opposed Ahmadis. From time to time, there are surges in their anti-Ahmadiyya stances.

It can be said that they get even more provoked by their so called “scholars and movements”. Even more than before. After the martyrdom of an Ahmadi in Glasgow in the last few week, these Muslims attempted to make their religious sentiments as an issue to save themselves.

However, due to a positive approach by the government and extreme interest of the press, these various organisation had to take an outwardly apologetic stance. The biggest Muslim organisation in the UK continues to stubbornly maintain that ‘Ahmadis are not Muslims’. Mosques are full of this propaganda.

This has impacted ordinary Muslims so much so that in schools, Muslim children, who probably do not even know the Kalima [declaration of faith] and have no understanding of the concept of Khatam-e-Nabuwwat , say to our Ahmadi children that ‘You are not Muslim’.

In recent days some of these youth wrote to me about the way they are treated. I say to them that you respond to this by learning the true teachings of Islam more than ever before; tell your friends that, we are Muslims and follow the teachings of Islam.

We accept the Holy Prophet (saw) as the Seal of the Prophets and in light of his prophecy we accept the Promised Messiah (as) as his servant and subordinate Prophet. In any case, this upsurge of hostility against Ahmadis rises in different countries time and time again. Because of media and the facilities of travel,

Opponents and opposition can spread everywhere. Thus, no country in the world is safe from the so-called Muslims who spread disorder and chaos. They spread to Africa, where these opponents had never gone before. Those people were atheists, Christians or Muslim in name only. Ahmadis went there, established a Community and built mosques.

Then these opponents arrived there to pronounce that ‘Ahmadis are not Muslims!’ So these are the tactics that opponents have always used and will continue to do so. Then these opponents arrived in Europe and spread the same teaching in their homes, mosques and madrassas. They are poisoning the minds of their children.

Therefore, to combat these fierce opponents, wherever they may spread to, it is the duty of our Ahmadi youth to enhance their knowledge of the true teachings of Islam. They must comprehend the true teachings of Islam, which the Promised Messiah (as) has elucidated to us in this age.

The teachings that the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community believe is that, the Holy Prophet (saw) was the last law-bearing Prophet. He was the last prophet who was given the Shariah. Hence, no new religious law can come. Similarly, the Holy Quran is the last law-bearing Book.

The Promised Messiah (as) has come in the subordination of the Holy Prophet (saw) and as such is a subordinate Prophet. The purpose of his advent is to continue the Shariah of the Holy Prophet (saw) in the world. The opposition to the Community has always been there but we have always seen that

God Almighty’s treatment with the Community is that the opposition and enmity of adversaries serves as a catalyst for the progress of the Community. We are not worried about them, never were and never should be. In light of the current opposition, the introduction of the community has been achieved

At a wider level that we would not have otherwise achieved in such a short time. The public is taking interest in this and the current media attention also was noticed of those Ahmadi youth who were not so interested in religion, who were not close to the Community and were at a distance.

Even those youth, who only attend the Community at rare occasions such as Eid, got to know, albeit through the media, that we accept the Promised Messiah (as) was a Prophet only in subordination of the Holy Prophet (saw). The Promised Messiah (as) duly fulfilled his role as a subordinate Prophet and

Upheld the Holy Prophet’s status of the Seal of the Prophets and also guided us on the matter. I will present some sayings of the Promised Messiah (as) in this regard. The Promised Messiah (as) said, “Most certainly be mindful that no person can be a true Muslim and

“a follower of the Holy Prophet (saw) unless “he accepts the Holy Prophet (saw) as the Seal of the Prophets. He is nothing unless he disassociates himself from the innovations -“ These harmful innovations and various other practices which people have brought into faith.

The Promised Messiah (as) did not bring these, in fact the scholars and saints have included them. “Until one does not do away with these, and accept the Holy Prophet (saw) as “the Seal of the Prophets and demonstrates this through his word and practice he is nothing.”

This should not be just limited to speech, in fact we also need to practically demonstrate our belief in the Holy Prophet (saw) as the seal of all prophets. The Promised Messiah (as) says that if one does not believe in this then he is akin to nothing.

The Promised Messiah (as) quoting Saadi (a Persian poet) said that, [Persian] ‘One should strive to achieve piety, devotion and righteousness by all means but in doing so, ‘one should not leave the path shown by the Holy Prophet (saw).’ The Promised Messiah (as) says,

“Our objective, for which God Almighty has made our heart fervent is that “only the Prophethood of the Holy Prophet (saw) be established “which has been created by God Almighty for all times to come and “to do away with all the false Prophethoods, set up by these people through innovations.”

By making such harmful innovations, they have drifted away from the teachings of the Holy Prophet (saw). In truth they are the ones breaking the seal of Prophethood! The Promised Messiah (as) says, “Look at all these hereditary Pirs and see for yourself,

“who has true faith in the finality of Prophethood of Muhammad (saw), us or them? “It is unfair and mischievous to reduce the finality of the Prophethood just by “verbal declaration while carrying on doing what you like and creating a new law for yourself.”

Some Muslim sects and groups “Have started with Baghdadi Salat and Makus salat. “Are these mentioned anywhere in the Holy Quran or the Sunnah of the Holy Prophet (saw)? “Similarly is there any mention in the Holy Quran about invoking Shaikh Abdul Qadir Jilani?

“He was not anywhere to be seen at the time of the Holy Prophet (saw). “This is shameful. Is this abiding by the Shariah? “Judge for yourself if while holding such beliefs and doing such deeds yourselves “you are justified in accusing me of breaking the seal of Prophethood.

“The truth of the matter is that if you had not allowed innovations to seep in to your mosques, “had accepted the true Prophethood of the seal of Prophets (Saw) and “had followed his example and footsteps, there would be no need for my coming.

“It was your innovations and new prophethoods that impassioned God’s honour to send “a person in the mantle of the Holy Prophet (saw) “to annihilate the idols of false prophethoods. This is what I have been commissioned to do.” The Promised Messiah (as) further says,

“It is quite a commonplace to prostrate before the Pirs or to circle their houses. “In short, the only objective of establishing this Community was “to establish the honour and Prophethood of the Holy Prophet (saw) once more. “For a lover the uniqueness of his beloved is lost

“if there are thousands more like the beloved, – ” If there are thousands of others like your beloved, what is the individuality of the beloved. “If these people are as devoted to the love of the Holy Prophet (saw) as they claim, “why do they worship thousands of tombs and shrines?

“They go to Madina Tayyaba, but also go to Ajmair and other shrines bareheaded and “barefoot; and believe that passing through the window of Pakpatan is enough for their salvation.” These are the places in India and Pakistan where certain saints were born; and where these tomb-worshippers now visit.

“These people think that passing through the window of Pakpatan “is enough for their salvation, there is no need for any good deeds, “just going through this door or window will grant them salvation. “Some groups have adopted flags while others have other distinctions. “A true Muslim’s heart trembles looking at these festivals and anniversaries.

“If God Almighty had no sense of honour for Islam, if He had not said, ‘Surely, the true religion with Allah is Islam’ [3:20] and, ‘Verily, We Ourself have sent down this Exhortation, ‘and most surely We will be its Guardian’ [15:10],

“the state of Islam today is such that there was no doubt in its elimination. “But the honour of Allah the Exalted was impassioned and His mercy and “His promise of safeguard demanded to send down someone in the reflection of “the Holy Prophet (saw) and revive his Prophethood in this age.

“Thus, He established this movement and sent me as one appointed by Him and as Mahdi.” Regarding the true purpose and objective of the Promised Messiah’s advent, the Promised Messiah (as) said, “My real purpose and objective is to make evident “the majesty of the Holy Prophet (saw) and to establish his greatness.

“My own part is incidental as the Holy Prophet (saw) has the power of attraction and “beneficence and my part is only by virtue of this beneficence.” The Holy Prophet (saw) has the ability to grant beneficence and favours and

The Promised Messiah (as) states that he has been mentioned by virtue of this benefice and favour. It is the beneficence of the Holy Prophet (saw) that has granted the Promised Messiah this status. The Holy Prophet’s (saw) beneficence has covered the Promised Messiah (as)and now when the

Holy Prophet is mentioned, it also includes his ardent devotee [the Promised Messiah (as)]. The harmful innovations that had entered into the Muslims due to a period of a thousand years of darkness was one of the reasons for the Promised Messiah’s advent so that he could bring about a reform.

The Promised Messiah (as) states, “I say once again that those who come from God do not say anything bad, “rather all they say is that worship God Almighty, treat His creation with kindness, “observe prayer and become free from all the ills that have entered the religion.

“Thus, I have appeared in this present age in order to rectify the errors “which emerged in the era of the Faij-e-A‘waj [the misguided horde].” These errors emerged during the dark ages that overcame the Muslims. “The biggest error of all was that the greatness and glory of God Almighty has

“been tarnished and the true, important and excellent teaching of the Holy Prophet (saw) “on the belief in the oneness of God has been cast into doubt. The excellent teaching of the Holy Prophet (saw) on the oneness of God has been cast into doubt.

“On the one hand, the Christians claim that Jesus is alive while “the Holy Prophet (saw) has died and thus consider Jesus to be god and “the son of God because he has been alive for the last two thousand years “and the passage of time has had no effect on him.

“On the other hand, Muslims have acknowledged that certainly Jesus was raised alive “to the heavens and remains in the same condition for the past two thousand years. “There has been no change or alteration in his condition while the Holy Prophet (saw) has died.

“I say truly that my heart trembles when I hear a Muslim cleric utter the words from “his mouth that the ‘Holy Prophet (saw) has died’. A living Prophet has been declared dead! “What more disrespect and dishonour can be done to Islam than this? “However, this fault is of the Muslims themselves,

“who have created something completely new which is totally contrary to the Holy Quran. “The Holy Quran very clearly speaks of the death of Jesus, “however, the rectification of this wrong was to be performed by me “because God has called me Hakm [arbiter] who was to come and remove this wrong.

“The world did not accepted him but God will accept him and “will establish his truth with powerful assaults. “Matters like these (which people utter) have harmed the world a great deal. “However, the time has come now for all the falsehood to be exposed.

“These matters cannot remain hidden from one who God has sent as Hakm [arbiter]. “Can the stomach [carrying a child] be hidden from a midwife? “The Holy Qur’an has clearly adjudged that the Promised Messiah will be “the definitive Khalifa and he has come.

“If one still remains narrow-minded from Faij-e-A‘waj [the misguided horde], “not only will he be at a loss himself but will also be considered as harming Islam. “The fact is that this wrong and impure creed has made hundreds of thousands of people apostatise.

“This principle has severely disgraced Islam and has insulted the Holy Prophet (saw). “If it is accepted that it is Jesus who gives life to the dead, “who was raised alive to the heavens and who will make the final judgement, “then God forbid, our Holy Prophet (saw) would have no status,

“yet he has been called Mercy for all the worlds and came as the Prophet “for the whole of humanity and he is the Seal of all the Prophets. “People who adhere to such nonsensical creed in spite of being called Muslim, also believe

“that, God forbid, of all the birds around some belong to Jesus and some to Allah the Exalted. “I once asked a believer in the Unity of God that ‘What if two animals were to be presented ‘and it was asked which one of them was God’s and which was of Jesus?’

“He replied, ‘They are now mixed up’.” I shall now present various extracts and incidents of the Promised Messiah (as) which shed light on certain aspects of his character. The Promised Messiah (as) was not limited to just intellectual exercise in order to prove his beloved master, the Holy Prophet’s (saw) status and rank,

In fact the Promised Messiah (as) practically demonstrated the teachings of Islam through his teachings and practise. Once a college student named Abdul Haq who was a Muslim but converted to Christianity. Just as the Promised Messiah (as) mentioned that many people left Islam for Christianity and

This individual was also among those people who had converted to Christianity. Either in search for the truth or just simply for the quest of knowledge, he came to Qadian and stayed with the Promised Messiah (as) for a few days. He discussed numerous issues in his meetings with the Promised Messiah (as).

On one occasion, this young man told the Promised Messiah (as) that he once mentioned his name to a Christian who swore at the Promised Messiah and he found this very unpleasant. The Promised Messiah’s (as) response to this shows his high moral stature. The Promised Messiah (as) replied,

“I am not concerned that people verbally abuse me. “I receive many abusive letters even those letters for which I have to pay the postage. “When I open them they are full of abuse. “I am abused in posters -” Even now in Pakistan they write abusive language on posters.

“And now people are being abusive even on post cards. “But these things do not matter and God’s light cannot be extinguished. “The ungrateful have always treated Prophets and the truthful in this manner. “What happened to Jesus of Nazareth in whose footsteps I have come!”

He had converted Christianity, therefore the Promised Messiah (as) gave the example of Jesus who was treated in a similar manner. He was verbally abused, persecuted and put on the cross. “And what treatment was given to our Holy Prophet (saw)? “Even now, foul people are abusive towards him.

“I am a sincere well-wisher of humanity and anyone who considers me an enemy is his own enemy.” As I mentioned before that this gentleman named Abdul Haq stayed for several days and these discussions continued and the Promised Messiah (as) replied to his various questions. One day the Promised Messiah (as) said,

“I advise you yet again that unless you understand something you should question again and again. “It is not a good practice to say that I have understood even when one has not. “This does not result well”. Such was the patience of the Promised Messiah (as) that

He would repeatedly encourage him to ask questions. The Promised Messiah (as) had this anguish for the truth to be disclosed on people and accept it. This young man also knew Siraj ud Din, who asked the Promised Messiah (as) questions and

The Promised Messiah (as) also replied to him and these replies were also published. Mentioning him, the Promised Messiah (as) said, “This is what Siraj ud Din did when he came here and did not benefit at all.” He would ask a question and then remain quiet and would not ask any further questions and

Did not derive any benefit when he came here. He would simply agree with everything and he did not try to resolve whatever doubts and misgivings that he had developed due to his pure intentions. He did not ask the Promised Messiah (as) any further questions.

He only asked whatever he had written from before and would just agree with whatever the Promised Messiah (as) would say. The Promised Messiah (as) said to this young man “Did he [Siraj ud Din] say anything to you, “do you know him?” Abdul Haq replied, ‘Yes, he stopped me from coming here and

‘said there was no need to visit. ‘He said now that we have found the truth’ – He also had become a Christian – ‘therefore what is the need to go on searching? ‘He also said that on his return when you saw him off,

‘you walked with him for three miles and that you were perspiring’.” The Promised Messiah (as) walked with for three miles to see him off – this was high standard of the Promised Messiah’s (as) hospitality which he demonstrated. The Editor of Al Badr writes in a note regarding this,

“Good-natured people should reflect on the affection and compassion of “the Promised Messiah (as) and imagine the passion he felt to save a soul. “Walking with him as he saw him off for three miles was merely borne of compassion,” The Promised Messiah (as) walked three miles with this Christian out of compassion,

So that he could save him. “What else did he have to do with Mian Siraj ud Din? “Had one’s nature been good one could find the truth merely by this display of compassion. “O servant of Allah, may God’s salutations be on you, who had such passion for us.”

Regarding the perspiration which he mentioned, The Promised Messiah (as) said, “He understood [my] perspiration to be an indication that I had no answers. “Alas! You should have asked him why he offered Salat during his stay here? “And did he not say that he was satisfied!

“If he were here in front of me I would ask him on oath because “when face to face one is embarrassed [not to lie].” In any case, Abdul Haq said, “I did ask him about Salat and “he acknowledged offering it and then eventually said

“he will go somewhere with cool climate to decide.” This is what Siraj ud Din replied. “Mr. Siraj ud Din had also said that Mirza Sahib seeks publicity. “I asked him four questions and he published the answers.” The Promised Messiah (as) replied, “There is no element of seeking publicity in this.

“Why would I conceal the truth! “Had I concealed it I would have been sinful and it would have been wrong. “God has commissioned and appointed me so I will speak the truth and “will take the task that I am entrusted with to humanity.

“I am not concerned whether someone says that I seek publicity or whatever else. “You should write to him again and ask him to stay here for a few more days.” Therefore the Promised Messiah (as) did not restrict the scope of his task,

For which he was sent by God Almighty, to a particular person. Rather he considered it to be of benefit to others and because it would prove the truthfulness of Islam, therefore he published it for the benefit of others and it was not for the purpose of making a name for himself.

Therefore everything that the Promised Messiah (as) did was for the sake of establishing the status and honour of the Holy Prophet (saw). In any case, this young man, Abdul Haq would converse with the Promised Messiah (as) on many topics during his walks. One day whilst conversing with the Promised Messiah (as)

They arrived back near the house and the Promised Messiah (as) said to Abdul Haq Sahib, “You are our guest and a guest can only feel comfortable if you are relaxed, “therefore whatever you need, do let me know without any formalities”. Then the Promised Messiah (as) turned to his companions and said that,

“This person was their guest and it is essential that they all behave kindly towards him and “should try to make sure he is not left in need of anything and faces no hardship.” The Promised Messiah (as) went home after this.

Hence, the Promised Messiah (as) took great care to cater for the individual needs of everyone. If anyone came to the Promised Messiah (as) seeking the truth, the Promised Messiah (as) was very concerned to ensure that they receive the message of truth in the appropriate manner and they should also be well looked after.

I will mention an incident regarding visiting a sick person. Even in this incident, with regards to prayer, the Promised Messiah (as) did not mention his own greatness as the modern day saints and sages do that he will make a prayer and it would be accepted,

Rather he only mentioned it in regards to the Unity of God and in regards to the philosophy of prayer and that he is only acting in servitude to God. The incident is that the person narrating says, “Qureshi Sahib had come to Qadian in his illness for a few days to get medical care

“from Hazrat Hakeemul Ummat. “He asked the Promised Messiah (as) several times for prayers and “the Promised Messiah (as) replied that he would pray. “Then one evening, through Hazrat Hakeemul Ummat, “he requested the Promised Messiah (as) that he would like to have the honour of meeting him

“but he cannot come to him due to his swollen foot and he cannot walk. “The Promised Messiah (as) himself promised him that “he would come to visit him on 11th August at his house. “Therefore, as soon as the Promised Messiah (as) left for his walk that day he went

“with his companions straight to the house where that person was residing and “spent some time speaking generally about his illness. “Then he mentioned by way of Tabligh, -” The Promised Messiah (as) never allowed an opportunity to be missed for Tabligh.

“The Promised Messiah (as) said, ‘I have prayed. I was getting your messages and I prayed. ‘But the reality is that mere prayers cannot do anything if God Almighty’s will and ‘command is not present. The needy face many hardships but

‘they can be alleviated with a command and attention of the ruler of the area.’ Some who in need go to the ruler of the time and he pays attention towards them and helps them, and their hardship is alleviated. ‘Similarly Allah’s command achieves everything.

‘I feel the acceptance of prayer when there is a command and will from Allah Almighty ‘because although He has said ‘pray unto Me’, He also says ‘I will answer your prayer’.” In [the words] “I will answer your prayer there exists the conditions of the presence of God’s command and His Will and

Also the condition that one should listen to God and should worship Him. The Promised Messiah (as) said that, “It is important that a person initiates a pious change “within himself and should try to reconcile with God and

“should find out what his purpose is in this life and how much effort he has made to achieve it. “Until a person really displeases God, he does not fall into any hardship but “if a person makes amends, then God turns to him with mercy.” Once God turns to a person with mercy,

Then even the doctors become able to diagnose and cure the person’s ailment and God grants the doctor knowledge and the ability. The Promised Messiah (as) said that nothing is difficult for God. In fact His honour is such that “Verily His command, when He intends a thing,

“is only that He says to it, ‘Be!,’ and it is.” The Promised Messiah (as) said, “I once read in a newspaper that a Deputy Inspector was cleaning his nails “with a pencil which [pierced him] and his hand swell up and “eventually the doctor had to advise him to cut off his hand.

“He did not give the doctor’s advice the due attention and he eventually passed away.” The Promised Messiah (as) says similarly, “I was also one day shaping a pencil with my nail “and the next day when I went for a walk, “I remembered the incident of the Deputy Inspector and my hand swell up.

“I prayed at that moment and I received a revelation and “then I saw that my hand was perfectly fine and there was no swelling or pain. “So this is the reality that when God shows His Grace, then no pain remains but “the required condition is that one should inculcate a reform within oneself.

“When He sees that this person is a beneficial being, He prolongs such a person’s life.” Which means, that if Allah sees that a person is beneficial for mankind, then He grants him a longer life. There are some anomalies but generally this is the practice of God.

The Promised Messiah (as) said, “This has been very clearly mentioned in my book. ‘And as to that which benefits men, it stays on the earth.’ [Al-Ra’ad: 18].” ‘And as to that which benefits men, it stays on the earth.’ [Al-Ra’ad: 18].

‘And as to that which benefits men, it stays on the earth.’ [Al-Ra’ad: 18]. The Promised Messiah said, that this has been mentioned in earlier books as well. It is also mentioned in the Book of Prophet Ezekiel. The Promised Messiah (as) mentions, “Man has been created for a great purpose

“however when the time comes and he fails to fulfil that purpose, “then God ultimately terminates such a person. Just look at the example of a servant. “If he does not do his work, his master gets rid of him. “Therefore why should God keep such a person who does not fulfil his obligation?”

The Promised Messiah (as) says, “Our Mirza Sahib – ” That is the father of the Promised Messiah (as) may God have mercy on him, “Had treatment for fifty years. “He used to say that he was not able to find a suitable prescription. “The truth is that without God Almighty’s command every particle that

“we may ingest cannot be of benefit. “We should engage a lot in seeking forgiveness from God so that “God may grant His blessings. “When God’s blessings come prayer is accepted. God states that He will accept prayers and “He also states that at times His decree should be accepted.

“This is why unless God’s command is forthcoming “I do not hope much for acceptance of prayer. Man is extremely weak and feeble. “We should keep God’s grace in sight.” The Promised Messiah (as) also guided us towards the true teachings of Islam

About rights of Allah and rights of mankind and presented his own model as he had learnt from his master and guide, the Holy Prophet Muhammad (saw). The Promised Messiah (as) says, “The biggest right amongst the rights towards Allah Almighty is that

“one should worship Him and this worship is not based on any personal gains. “In fact, even if there is no concept of hell or heaven, still He should be worshiped and “the personal love which the creation should have towards the Creator should not be affected.”

This is an objection raised against religion by many opponents of religion that you worship out of greed. So the Promised Messiah (as) said that one should worship Allah Almighty because of His love and affection. The Promised Messiah (as) says that, “For this reason there should be no question

“about hell or heaven.” We have to pay the due rights of Allah Almighty. It should not be a question of heaven or hell, rather, the love of Allah demands that He should be worshiped. Due to the blessings of Allah Almighty upon us, it is required that we worship Him. The Promised Messiah says,

“My belief in regards to compassion for humanity is that “one’s heart is not completely cleansed unless one prays for one’s enemy. “Allah the Exalted has not placed any restriction in ‘Pray unto Me I will answer your prayer’ [40:61].

“Allah Almighty has not put a restriction that prayers for an enemy will not be accepted. “In fact, it is my belief that it is the Sunnah to pray for one’s enemy. “The Holy Prophet (saw) used to often pray for Hazrat Umer (ra) “and this led him to become a Muslim.

“Therefore one should not have personal enmity borne of malice. “It is something to be thankful that “I do not see any enemy for whom I have not prayed for two or three times. “There is not even a single such enemy. I tell you and teach you the same.

“God Almighty is just as wary of someone who really inflicts pain on another and “has undue enmity borne of malice as He does not want anyone associated with Him.” That is, Allah Almighty dislikes wrongful enmities and hurting others in the same manner as He dislikes when someone associates partners with Him.

“In one instance God does not want disassociation and “in the other instance He does not want association, that is, Meaning in one place He does not want dissociation and in another association. Or He does not want the status of associating. “He does not want mutual disassociation between humanity and any association with Him.”

Allah Almighty does not want mankind to be separated from each other, fighting each other, facing opposite directions, this is ‘ Fasal’ . And Allah Almighty does not want for Himself that anyone is associated with Him, or someone associates someone equal to Him.

This is ‘ Wasal’ and Allah the Almighty does not want this for him. Allah Almighty does not want mankind to be separated from each other. He wants them to live together in love and affection as one and they should consider each other equal.

And Allah Almighty wants for Himself that he is the Sovereign, the only One and no one sets anyone equal to Him. “And in this way one should also pray for those who deny [the truth] this clears the heart, “engenders conviction and raises courage.

“Therefore unless our Community adopts this stance there can be no distinction “between them and the others. “It is important for me that when a person befriends another in the way of faith and “someone among his relatives is underprivileged that the person treats him with

“extreme forbearance and gentleness and loves them because that is the way of the Almighty – ” [Persian] “That is, God the Almighty forgives wrongdoers along with the righteous people. “Thus, those of you who are connected to me should become a community about which

“it is stated that it is a community whose close friends are not the wicked. “This is a summary of the teaching presented as regards imbibing the attributes of Allah.” Hence, these are a few extracts which I have mentioned out of that great treasure which

The Promised Messiah (as) has presented to us from the actual teachings of Islam and the conduct of the Holy Prophet (saw) from which it is apparent that the Promised Messiah (as) has fulfilled the due rights of adopting the conduct of the Holy Prophet (saw) and the Qur’anic teachings.

He did not only raise slogans of finality of Prophethood, rather, his every word and action was subservient to his master and guide and he had the ardent desire to establish this teaching and Shariah so that the world should know that this beautiful teaching which

Has been revealed upon the Holy Prophet (saw) is the real form of deliverance and he advised and guided his followers to act upon it. May Allah the Almighty enable us to fulfil the due right of entering the Community of the Promised Messiah (as). Where he enables us to establish practical examples,

There he also enables us to understand the status and rank of the Holy Prophet (saw) and may we able to present the true picture of Islam to the world. All praise is due to Allah. We laud Him, we beseech help from Him and ask His protection;

We confide in Him, we trust Him alone and we seek protection against the evils and mischief of our souls and from the bad results of our deeds. Whomsoever He guides on the right path, none can misguide him; and whosoever He declares misled, none can guide him onto the right path.

And we bear witness that none deserves to be worshipped except Allah. We bear witness that Muhammad (saw) is His servant and Messenger. O servants of Allah! May Allah be merciful to you. Verily, Allah commands you to act with justice, to confer benefits upon each other

And to do good to others as one does to one’s kindred and forbids evil which pertain to your own selves and evils which affect others and prohibits revolts against a lawful authority. He warns you against being unmindful. You remember Allah; He too will remember you;

Call Him and He will make a response to your call. And verily divine remembrance is the highest virtue.
