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, Most Gracious, Ever Merciful. All praise belongs to Allah, Lord of all the worlds,
Most Gracious, Ever Merciful; Master of the Day of Judgement. Thee alone do we worship and Thee alone do we implore for help. Guide us along the right path, the path of those whom Thou has bestowed Thy blessings, those who have not incurred Thy displeasure, and those who have not gone astray.
In the time of the Promised Messiah (as), it was mentioned by someone in a speech at the annual convention, that “The only difference between “the mission of the Promised Messiah (as) and the other Muslims is that “they believe Jesus, Son of Mary, to have ascended to the heavens alive and
“we believe that he has passed away. “Other than that, there is no other matter that is debatable between us.” However, this did not clarify many issues and nor the objective of the Promised Messiah’s (as) advent. Therefore, despite his ill health,
The Promised Messiah (as) took notice of this and said that this not the only difference. On 27th December 1905, the Promised Messiah (as) delivered a speech in order to fully elucidate this matter. He said that the purpose of his advent was not to simply differentiate this particular issue.
God Almighty did not establish this community for such a small issue, in fact, the Promised Messiah (as) mentioned many other factors [in his speech]. He said that indeed the subject of Jesus’s (as) death is a distinguishing factor but he further said that the moral state of the Muslims had deteriorated significantly and
Gave a detailed discourse in regards to this. He stated that among the various factors which was causing the decline of the Muslims and for the reformation of which God Almighty had sent the Promised Messiah (as) was to refrain from falsehood and uphold the truth.
In relation to this, the Promised Messiah (as) advised the Community to raise their standards of truth and make this as a mark of distinction between themselves and others. To simply profess belief and accept the advent of the Promised Messiah (as) is of no use.
I shall present the writings of the Promised Messiah (as) before you. If each and every one of us carries out an honest assessment of themselves, those who do not meet the standard to which the Promised Messiah (as) is drawing the Community’s attention towards will realise it themselves.
God Almighty in the Holy Quran has also mentioned this as an attribute of a true believer, “And those who bear not false witness.” Also, He has instructed us to refrain from associating partners with God and falsehood and has coupled Shirk and falsehood together,
In other words, falsehood is as big a sin as Shirk is. The word God Almighty has used in the Holy Quran [for falsehood] is ‘Zoor’ which I have just read and it means: lying, falsehood, false statement, associating partners with God, to sit in such places or gatherings where
Falsehood is commonly spoken, also gatherings where songs are played, pointless activities and where falsehood is spoken all fall under the definition of ‘Zoor’. Therefore, a true believer are those who do not speak falsehood, they do not attend places where falsehood and pointless activities are taking place in their gatherings,
They do not associate partners with God Almighty and nor do they visit such places where idolatrous practises take place. Also, they do not give false testimonies. Thus, if each one of us was to refrain from falsehood in this manner then it would bring about such a change within them
Which enables one to become a true believer. In any case, I shall now present that portion of the Promised Messiah’s (as) address in which he speaks about falsehood. Listen to this attentively. Today, there is a large proportion among us who need to carefully ponder over this.
In regards to the decline of the Muslims and the reason why they disintegrated, the Promised Messiah (as) states, “The cause for the internal strife among the Muslims was their love for the world.” This is in continuation from the previous subject – love of the world, of the Promised Messiah’s (as) address
In which he stated that the internal strife among the Muslims “If attaining the pleasure of God as their objective, they could have easily understood which “creed among all the sects was the right one and would have followed it and thus become united.
“Now, it is their love for the world which is causing the deterioration, “therefore how can such people be called Muslims “who do not follow in the footsteps of the Holy Prophet (saw)? “God Almighty states, ‘If you love Allah, follow Me: then will Allah love you’.
“However, instead of having love for God Almighty and following the Holy Prophet (saw), “they have love for the world.” The Promised Messiah (as) asks the question that, “Is this following the Holy Prophet (saw)?” by leaving the faith and being immersed in worldly pursuits. “Was the Holy Prophet (saw) a worldly man?
“Did he practise usury? “Or, was he neglectful towards his duties and the commandments of God Almighty? “God forbid, was he guilty of hypocrisy? “Did he give precedence to the world over faith? “Ponder over this! “To follow the Holy Prophet (saw) means to follow in his footsteps,”
The Holy Prophet (saw) would give precedence to faith over the world and “then see the blessings of God Almighty.” “Follow the footsteps of the Holy Prophet (saw) and “then you will see how much God Almighty will bless you. “The Companions of the Holy Prophet (saw) adopted this and
“pathway and look how God Almighty transformed their lives! “They became completely distant from worldly matters and “separated themselves from the love for the world. “They suppressed their desires. “Compare your situation with theirs; are you following their example? “It is a pity that now people do not understand what God Almighty wants from them.
“[Arabic idiom] evil has spread widely. “A person goes to the court and without any shame or mortification “takes two paltry coins and in return gives a false testimony. “Can lawyers say that all witnesses they present in court cases are truthful?” Hazrat Khalifatul Masih II (ra) relates an incident regarding
Hazrat Mirza Sultan Ahmad Sahib (ra), who was a magistrate. He says that, “Once a person came to him who he had acquaintance with and “it was the date when the witnesses had to be presented. “The person requested for his date to be moved forward because “his witnesses were not present.
“Hazrat Mirza Sultan Ahmad Sahib jokingly said to him, ‘I thought you were a very intelligent man, however you are very foolish. ‘Why would you need to bring witnesses when you can go outside and ‘pay anyone a small sum of money and they will become witnesses for you.’
“The person went outside and after a short while came with two to three people as witnesses. “When Hazrat Mirza Sultan Ahmad Sahib questioned one of the witnesses, “he would confidently reply and say he saw the event unfold in such and such manner. “Hazrat Mirza Sultan Ahmad Sahib said that inside he was laughing,
“in fact he even laughed in front of him that he had just brought these witnesses “after he had told him so and they are openly lying in front of him and “they were even swearing by God and putting their hands on the Quran while lying.
“However, after they had given their testimonies, he said to them, ‘Are you not ashamed that you are holding the Quran and giving your testimony while ‘taking an oath on it and yet you have just found [these witnesses] in front of me?’ ”
This was the state of the witnesses, and even today their state is similar. We often observe this in the cases lodged against the Community that many people are presented as witnesses, even if they have no knowledge of the case present. The Promised Messiah (as) states,
“From whichever aspect one looks at the state of the world today, “they will find it to be in a very precarious situation.” “False witnesses are produced, “people think nothing of bringing false court cases on and fake documents are created” The paperwork and documents are forged.
Forged documents are produced by paying a government official. “They will evade the truth when they speak on any matter,” “They do not speak the truth and these state of affairs have become even worse than before. “Those who argue that there is no need for the mission [of the Promised Messiah (as)]
“should be asked that was this the faith that the Holy Prophet (saw) brought?” The Promised Messiah (as) presented these moral qualities, to show the need of his mission. He said that is it enough to simply say that the Messiah is not in the heavens but
Has died on the earth and the one who was to come has arrived? No, in fact, the highest moral qualities need to be acquired and it was for this reason that God Almighty sent the Promised Messiah (as). “God Almighty has called falsehood as something very foul and one should avoid it.
“God Almighty states: ‘Shun therefore the abomination of idols, and shun false speech’. “He has likened falsehood to idolatry.” The Promised Messiah (as) states, “Just as a foolish person leaves God Almighty and “bows before a stone, so too is the case of one who shuns truth and honesty and
“makes falsehood as an idol for one’s own benefit. “That is why God Almighty has likened falsehood to idolatry and “drawn an association between the two. “Just as an idolatrous person seeks salvation from idols, “one who speaks falsehood also makes [falsehood] an idol and “assumes it can seek salvation from it.
“Such a catastrophe has befallen that if they are asked why they are idolatrous and “why do they not let go of this impurity, they reply, ‘how can we leave it, it is simply not possible to get by without it!’ “How much more unfortunate could they be?
“They completely rely on falsehood, however I assure you that “the ultimately it is the truth alone that prevails. “[It is the truth that is] successful and victorious.” The Promised Messiah (as) related an incident of his own, he states,
“It was 27 – 28 years ago, or perhaps even before that this humble one, in the support of Islam, “sent an exposition against the Arya to a publishing house in order to be published, “which was owned by a Christian named ‘Ralya Ram’.
He was a lawyer living in Amritsar and also published his own newspaper. The [manuscript] was sent in the form of a package which was open from both ends. Many of us have heard this incident and narrate it, however it is limited to only narration and very few of us act upon it.
“There was also a letter placed in the package. “The letter contained words which spoke in support of Islam and “pointed towards the falsities of the other faiths and “also contained instructions for the publication of the exposition. “Therefore, on account of his opposition to the faith [of Islam], “the Christian became infuriated
“and by chance found the opportunity to launch a hostile attack because “to include a separate letter in the package was against the law, “which this humble one had no knowledge of. “According to the postal regulation, “the offence carried a penalty of a 500 Rupees fine or six months imprisonment.
“He, therefore informed the postal authorities and filed a lawsuit against this humble one. “However, even before I had learnt of this case, “God Almighty revealed to me in a dream that the lawyer, Ralya Ram,
“had sent a snake in order to attack me, however I fried it like a fish and sent it back to him. “I believe that this points towards the manner in which the case was eventually concluded “in court and that it would stand as an example which can be of benefit for all lawyers.
“For this offence, I was called to the district of Gurdaspur and “whichever lawyers were sought advice for the case, “they all said that apart from lying there was no other option. “They also advised that I should say that I did not place the letter in the package and
“instead it was Ralya Ram who placed the letter. “They further assured me that by saying this the case will then have to be judged “by the witnesses’ accounts, “and so by presenting four false witnesses it will result in me being acquitted.”
In other words the Promised Messiah (as) was being advised to present false witnesses. “Otherwise (the lawyers said) it will be difficult and there will be no other way to be acquitted.” However, the Promised Messiah (as) states, “I told all of them that come what may,
“I will not let go off the truth and whatever the outcome so let it happen. “The same day, or the next day, I was presented in the court of an Englishmen and “the In-charge of the postal office was presented as the plaintiff, as he was a government official.
“The judge wrote my statement down and “the first question he asked was whether or not I had placed the letter inside the package and “also that does the letter and packet belong to me? “Without any hesitation, I replied, ‘Yes, both the letter and packet are mine and
‘I posted the packet with the letter placed inside it, “however I did not do this with the ill-intention of causing a loss to the government’.” He did not do it in order to cause the government any loss and to save money.
‘In fact, I did not consider the letter separate from the exposition and ‘nor was there anything secretive about it.’ “Upon hearing this, God Almighty caused the judge’s heart to incline towards me “and the opposing official from the postal service made great commotion and
“lengthy submissions to the judge in English which I could not understand. “However, I did understand that after each of his submissions the judge would say, ‘No, no!’ and dismissed them all. “After the opposing official had stated all his arguments and vented his frustration, “the judge turned towards writing the verdict and
“perhaps after writing one or one and a half lines told me that I was free to go. “After hearing this, I came out of the courtroom and “expressed my gratitude to my Most-Benevolent God, “Who granted me victory despite being up against an English officer.
“I know very well that due to the blessings of truthfulness, “God Almighty granted me deliverance from the tribulation at that time. “Before this, I saw in a dream that someone had reached their arm out to take my cap off.
“I asked what he was trying to do but he left the cap on my head and said, ‘Its fine, its fine’.’’ The Promised Messiah (as) states, “How can I say that there is no alternative but to speak falsehood? “These are shameful statements and the fact is that truthfulness is the only way.
“Even now, when I recall that incident, I derive great pleasure from it…” This is the incident regarding the postal service. He states, “When I recall this incident, I derive great pleasure from it…” “because I abided by the [command of] of God Almighty ”
“God Almighty made honoured me and honoured me in such a way that it became a sign.” ‘And he who puts his trust in Allah – He is sufficient for him.’ The Promised Messiah (as) states, “Remember, there is nothing as abominable as falsehood.
“Worldly people usually say that those who speak the truth end up being penalised. “However, how can I accept this? “I was put on trial for seven court cases and by the grace of God Almighty “I did not have the need to write even a single word of falsehood in any one of them.
“Can someone say that I experienced defeat in any one of them? “God Almighty supports and aides the truth. “Can it be possible that He will punish someone who is truthful? (How could that be?). “If that were the case then no one in the world would have the courage
“to speak the truth and will no longer have any belief in God Almighty. “The truthful will die immediately.” The Promised Messiah (as) further states, “The fact is that those who receive punishment for telling the truth
“is not because of the truth” if someone spoke the truth in a trial or if a person was punished, it is not because he/she spoke the truth and that if the person had lied they would not have received the punishment, the Promised Messiah states,
“the punishment is given because of some other hidden ills of theirs and they are being “punished for some other lie they had told.” Sometimes the punishment is given due to the other sins that a person has committed and are hidden.
“God Almighty has a whole record of all the sins and evil acts of a person. “He has knowledge of all their ill deeds and “one can receive a punishment for anyone of them.” Then the Promised Messiah (as) says, how we observe in the world that
Sometimes someone is receiving a severe punishment for something trivial. The Promised Messiah (as) narrates an incident that “One of my teachers, Gul Ali Shah, was from Batala. “He used to teach Partap Singh, son of Sher Singh. “He narrated that once Sher Singh beat his cook a lot simply because
“he added extra salt and pepper into the food. “He was a very simple person” This teacher, Gul Ali Shah Sahib, “He said to Sher Singh that you have done something very unjust” (by beating him). He had only added extra salt into the food
“Upon that Sher Singh said ‘Maulavi Ji is not aware that this person ate 100 goats of mine. “Similarly, there is an account of immoral actions committed by a person and “at a certain point he is caught and punished.” The Promised Messiah (as) says “It is not possible for a person who adopts truthfulness
“to be humiliated because he is under the protection of Allah. “There is no secure fort or enclosure better than the protection of Allah. “However, an incomplete thing cannot prove beneficial. “Can someone say that one drop of water will suffice a thirsty person?
“Or at a time of immense hunger, one can be satiated by one seed or a bite? “Absolutely not, rather, he will not be satisfied until he does not drink or eat his fill. “Similarly, the rewards and results that should be acquired “are not achieved until actions are perfected.
“Imperfect actions can neither please Allah Almighty, nor can they be blessed. “It is the covenant of Allah Almighty that if you act in accordance to my wish, “I will bless you.” The Promised Messiah (as) says, “In short, the worldly people claim that without lie and “forgery there is no other option.
“Someone says that a person said the truth in a trial. “For this reason he was imprisoned for four years. “I will say again that this is all wishful thinking which arise due to lack of knowledge.” The Promised Messiah (as) says [in Persian] “Obtain perfection so you become the beloved of the world.”
That is, it is one’s own weaknesses that makes him tell a lie. If a person’s attention is towards [performing] good deeds and he tries to improve in this regard, he puts his trust in Allah Almighty, then these punishments are not received in this manner.
The Promised Messiah (as) says, “These are the results of weaknesses”. Punishments are received as a result of the defects of one’s personal weaknesses, “Perfection does not produce such rewards. “A person will not become a tailor if he puts a stitch on a cotton sheet,”
That is, if someone put a stich on a sheet of cotton, he cannot be called a tailor and nor can he be called a skilful tailor “and it is not necessary that he can stitch high quality silk clothes. “If he is given such clothes, the result will be that he will ruin them.
“Hence, a good deed mixed with something foul is useless. “It has no value in the sight of God Almighty. “However, these people are proud of it and desire salvation through it. “Allah Almighty does not waste an iota of a good deed if there is sincerity in it.
“Allah Almighty has stated, ‘one who has done a very small good deed, ‘will see its result and receive the reward’.” The Promised Messiah (as) says, “For this reason, if he has done a very small good deed, “he will receive its rewards from Allah Almighty.
“Then what is the reason for not receiving the reward for doing a lot of good deeds. “The reason for this is that there is no sincerity in it. “Sincerity is the condition for performing good actions. “As Allah Almighty says ‘Purify the religion for the sake of Allah Almighty.’
This sincerity is amongst those people who are the Saints.” Allah Almighty says, purify the religion for the sake of Allah Almighty. Therefore, all these things mentioned by the Promised Messiah (as) have been mentioned with immense pain. As I stated, that he mentioned these things in reference to the fact that
It is more important than the belief about Prophet Jesus’s (as) returning from heaven or not returning from heaven, that a person safeguards himself completely from ‘associating partners with God’ and makes his practical condition such that there should not be any sign of Shirk Establish truthfulness and abhor lies.
Now keeping all these things in mind, every Ahmadi should assess themselves. For example some things are such, I will narrate a few. For instance, they should assess themselves during trials, whether or not they are using false statements during trials? Then in our businesses do we use false statements to gain profit?
Then, while arranging marriages, do we use false statements? Do we use the ‘right word’ in every way? Do we provide all the information regarding a boy and girl? Do we take support of falsehood when receiving social and welfare from the government? In this regard, there exists a negative impression about many people that
They hide their income and receive an allowance from the government and for this reason they do not pay taxes. This is stealing tax money. We should remember that now the general economic situation of the world is such, that every government is facing problems or
If some governments are not facing problems then they will eventually. For this reason, government will try to investigate into this further and are doing so currently. Therefore, if such a negative matter is brought to the attention of the government, it will not only create hardship for the person [involved], rather,
It will also be a source of disgrace for Ahmadiyyat, if it comes to light that the person [involved] is Ahmadi. Hence, those who are using any false statements in this regard should not consider worldly benefit. They should strive to please Allah Almighty by surviving on less and safeguarding themselves from falsehood.
Then there are asylum related affairs. We should assess ourselves whether false statements are being used. Lawyers definitely encourage in doing so and this has always been the practice of lawyers as the Promised Messiah (as) mentioned that he was also asked to tell a lie and present false witnesses.
Similarly, office holders should also assess themselves if they use false statements in their reports or do they leave out anything important from it. As I have mentioned once in my past sermon that sometimes even if a lie is not said,
However, the ‘right word’ is not used, i.e. the complete truth is not told, that is also wrong. Righteousness should be used to take care of everything. Hence, it is necessary to go into detail in order to look into things.
Everyone should take care of their matters by neglecting their own benefits and egos whilst keeping fear of Allah Almighty at the forefront. This is the way to take care of your matters. If all of this is not practiced then as the Promised Messiah (as) said that
This is all a manifestation of love towards the world. As the Promised Messiah (as) said that these things then lead to causing strife in the world. It is obvious that the unity of the Community cannot be maintained due to differences or at least a discord is procured in this society and
The unity for which the Promised Messiah (as) came to establish comes to an end. All other sects were created for worldly sake, in the same way another sect will be created. So many evil deeds take root from one evil deed.
As the Promised Messiah (as) said that evil deeds continue to produce more evil deeds. As Ahmadis, there are many responsibilities upon us which we should keep in mind. A true Ahmadi is the one who strives to follow the practice of the Holy Prophet (saw) and strives to become a Godly person.
The Promised Messiah (as) says, at one place in continuation to this topic which I have mentioned earlier that, “Remember much that the person who becomes Godly, God becomes his and “God Almighty does not become a target of someone’s forgery. “It is absurd and foolish for someone to desire to deceive God
“through hypocrisy and forgery. He is deceiving himself. “The beauty of the world, the love for the world, is the root cause for all the evil deeds.” The beauty of the world and the love for the world is the root cause of all the evil deeds.
“One becomes blind in it so much so that he loses sight of humanity and “does not realise what he is doing and what he should have been doing. “In this condition, a wise person cannot be deceived. “Then how can Allah Almighty be deceived.
“Nevertheless, the root cause for such wicked deeds is love for the world and “the greatest sin which is ruining Muslims at this time and “the sin they are actively committing is this very love for the world. “During their sleep or when they are up, while sitting or standing or walking around,
“they are stuck with this grief and anxiety and “they are not cognisant and aware of the time when they will be placed in the grave. “If such people feared Allah Almighty and had some consideration and “worry for the faith, then they would have benefited immensely.”
The Promised Messiah (as) says that “Sa’di says…”a Persian poet, ‘Alas, the Wazir [minister] would have feared God’.’’ “How active are servants for a meagre task, “however when it is time for prayers, they do not do it because of the cold water. “Why do such things happen?
“Since the greatness of Allah Almighty is not present in the hearts. “If they have any sense of God’s greatness and they remember death and believe in it, “then all the sluggishness and negligence would disappear. “For this reason, God’s greatness should be kept in the heart and “one should always fear Him.
“His grasp is dangerous. “He overlooks and pardons, however, when He seizes someone He seizes them very strongly. “To the extent that ‘He cared not for the consequences thereof’ [91:16] “Then He [God] does not care about the condition of those whom He left behind.
“On the contrary, those people who fear God and acknowledge His greatness in their hearts, “God Almighty gives them respect and He Himself becomes their shield. “It is mentioned in the Hadith “The one who becomes Godly, God Almighty becomes his.” “However, the sad thing is that the people who pay attention to this and
“desire to come to God Almighty, “the majority of them want this to happen very spontaneously. “They do not know that how much patience and courage is required in religious matters and “it is astonishing that they wait for many years for worldly affairs to be settled.
“The worldly affairs for which they strive day and night. “A farmer waits so long after sowing the seeds but when they come towards religious matters “they say that someone should make them a saint instantly through magic. “On the very first day they want to reach the highest stage.
“However, neither did they work hard nor did they go through any trials. The Promised Messiah (as) says, “Remember much, that this is not the law and custom of Allah Almighty. “Every step of progress is gradual here and God Almighty cannot be pleased if we merely
“say that, ‘We are Muslims’ or, ‘We are believers.’ Therefore Allah Almighty says, ‘Do these people think that Allah Almighty will be pleased with them and ‘they will be left alone if they say ‘We believe’ and they will not be tested?
“To make someone a saint of Allah instantly through magic is against His practice. “If this was Allah’s practice, then the Holy Prophet (saw) would do the same thing and “he would transform his devoted Companions into saints through magic. “He would not have made them go through trials and get slaughtered and
“God Almighty would not have said the following about them: “‘There are some of them who have fulfilled their vow and some who still wait.’ “The Promised Messiah (as) says that if the world cannot be achieved without difficulties and “hard work, then the person who thinks that religion is like a fruit
“naturally ripened on tree is foolish. “It is the truth that religion is easy but every blessing requires hard work. “Although Islam has not even set such strenuous work. “Look at the Hindus and see what their devotees and ascetics have to do. “Sometimes their backs are ruined. Some let their nails grow.
“Similarly, there were monks amongst Christians. “Islam did not include such things in it [teaching], rather, its teachings are ‘The one who purifies himself, he truly prospers.’ “The one who separated himself form every kind of innovation, “falsehood and immorality, lustful emotions for the sake of Allah Almighty.
“He rejects all the lustful desires and prefers the hardships in the way of Allah Almighty. “A person who prefers Allah Almighty and lets go of the world and “its comforts is truly the one who receives salvation. “May Allah Almighty enable us to reform ourselves.
May we be able to understand the importance of the stature of truthfulness. May we be the ones to give precedence to our faith over worldly affairs. After coming under the oath of allegiance of the Promised Messiah (as),
May we be able to truly understand the purpose of the advent of the Promised Messiah (as) and may we be able to fulfil this purpose instead of just saying it. May we be able to strive hard towards following the beautiful example of the Holy Prophet (saw).
And may we be the one to give precedence to the pleasure of Allah Almighty over everything and strive to achieve it. May Allah Almighty enable to do so. After offering prayers I will lead a funeral prayer in absentia of Respected Qasim Toray Sahib, Missionary of the Movement in Ivory Coast.
He was a local there. He passed away on 25 January 2016 by the decree of God. “Surely, to Allah we belong and to Him shall we return” [2:157]. He accepted Ahmadiyyat in 1986. Before accepting Ahmadiyyat he used to administer a personal Madrassah and after accepting Ahmadiyyat he presented that Madrassah to the Community
Which was converted to a primary school later. In 1990 he completed his Missionary course, which is Murabi/Mu’alem Course, from Jamia Ahmadiyya Ivory Coast. After this for a long time he did Tabligh [propagation] tours throughout Ivory Coast. He planted the seed of Ahmadiyyat in countless cities and villages.
He got the opportunity to serve a regional missionary for 10 years in Bassam region. He spent approximately one year to learn the Urdu language and he continued to translate Friday Sermons in Jula language until his demise. The deceased was a Moosi. Basit Sahib, a local missionary, writes
“This humble one was introduced to Respected Qasim Toray Sahib in 1996. “For the past 30 years he was able to serve the Community. From 1986 until now. “Loyalty to the Community, love of Khilafat, love for the writings of the Promised Messiah (as) “and untiring labour were his prominent attributes.
“He learned to read and write out of his personal desire in order to benefit directly “form the writings of the Promised Messiah (as) . “For this purpose he visited Qadian twice so he could learn Urdu. “After returning from Qadian he would study the books very eagerly.”
In this regard, Murabi Sahib says that, “He was often in touch with me via telephone. “He would ask me about various metaphors and difficult words. “He would read the poetic work of the Promised Messiah (as) with immense eagerness and “love and he would try to understand the its translation as well.
“Allah Almighty had bestowed him with a beautiful voice. “Once during a journey he requested this humble one “to teach him some peotic work of the Promised Messiah (as) in Persian.” He says that, “I taught him five couplets of a poem with melody.
“Therefore when we reached the village where we were visiting for a tour, “he presented these couplets melodiously in the convention there and he translated them in the Jula language. He composed countless poems about Islam and Ahamdiyat, the Holy Prophet (saw),
The advent of Imam Mahdi (as) in Arabic, Jula and French and he presented them melodiously. He used to sing as well. These poems were very popular amongst the people. In 2003 after the demise of Khalifatul Masih IV (rh), the opponents of the Community
In the northern region, which was under the control of rebels and it was practically cut off from the rest of the country, began a propaganda against the Community that their Khalifah has passed away and after that the Community was finished. The Ahmadis of this region became restless due to this reason.
When this news reached the headquarters, respected Qasim Toray Sahib was sent to remove and finish this false propaganda. Journeying to the northern region was very difficult in those days but Qasim Toray Sahib traveled via bus, tractor trolley, motorcycle, carriage, and on foot through the jungles and reached those Communities.
He propagated the message of Ahmadiyat in that area and informed everyone that the system of Khilafat is still established by the Grace of Allah Almighty. Due to this, the morals of the Ahmadis were raised. Therefore, as a result of this tour, a new spirit of life was generated in several Communities.
In this manner, he had the opportunity to end the false propaganda. In order to do tabligh (propagation), he would often do a tour for a month. He was a very hard working person. May Allah Almighty elevate the ranks of the deceased and
May He enable his generations to keep a relationship of loyalty with the Community. All praise is due to Allah. We praise 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. He is alone and has no partner.
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.
