Synopsis:

English

Yesterday was 20 February, a day which is commemorated as the day of the prophecy of Musleh Maud in the Jama’at. In this prophecy, the Promised Messiah(as) foretold the birth of a son of his who would be pious and righteous and would have many other qualities. Last Friday sermon was about signs given to the Promised Messiah(as) by God Almighty. As today is the closest Friday to 20 February, Hazrat Khalifatul Masih deemed it appropriate to give a discourse on the prophecy of 20 February, which was called a magnificent sign by the Promised Messiah(as).

These were the qualities the son was to have. We know that Hazrat Musleh Maud(ra) graced the office of Khilafat for 52 years and departed from this world having proved his mettle to the world. Many books would need to be written if one was to study in-depth these qualities and appraise the life of Hazrat Musleh Maud(ra). It is not possible to encompass his life and achievements in sermons and speeches. Jama’at commemorates 20 February every year and scholars give speeches according to their knowledge and insight on this subject.

Hazrat Musleh Maud(ra) wrote 10 books and journals on Kalam and 31 books and journals on spirituality, Islamic morals and Islamic creed. He wrote 13 books and journals on the life of the Holy Prophet(saw), 4 books and journals on history, 3 books and journals on jurisprudence (fiqah), 25 books and journals on the politics of pre-partition India and 9 books and journals on post-partition politics and establishment of Pakistan.

Akhtar Sahib of Patna University wrote that he sent the volumes of Tafseer e Kabir to a professor of Persian, Abdul Mannan Sahib, and the professor was so impressed that he distributed some of the volumes to other academics to read. He later asked them for their opinion on it. The academics acknowledged that there was no commentary of this calibre in Persian. When it was put to them what did they think about comparing it to Arabic commentaries, they said that Arabic commentaries were not available in Patna.

An example of Western scholars opining about Five Volume Commentary is British academic A J Arberry who was a scholar of Arabic, Persian and Islamic studies. He said that the Five Volume Commentary was a huge achievement and the then current volume was the first stage of the achievement. He said Ahmadi scholars started this great work under the encouraging auspices of Hazrat Mirza Bashir ud din Mahmood Ahmad. The work was of towering nature, i.e. to produce an edition of the Qur’an with accurate and corresponding translation in English as well as commentary on every verse.

Death of Sahibzada Mirza Hanif Ahmad, a son of Hazrat Musleh Maud(ra).
