Synopsis:English

It is great grace and favour of God on the Jama’at of the Promised Messiah(as) that He has given it people who understand the spirit of their pledges and understand the spirit of sacrifice and not only do they understand the spirit of sacrifice but they also set models of it of which many examples can be found in this age. If it is a matter of financial sacrifice, it is the Ahmadis who demonstrate it, if sacrifice of time is demanded, the Ahmadiyya Jama’at present excellent models of it.

The first thing to remember here is that when we claim to be a Divine community we should be mindful that such communities do not believe in relying on worldly governments and protestations. There is no hand of any worldly help in the progress of Divine communities. Moreover, worldly help is never unconditional, it is never offered without any clause to capitulate before whoever is offering help and true believers cannot abide by this. They seek help from God and turn to Him alone.

By way of example of the stance of worldly people Huzoor said a newspaper here published an article saying that Muslims are not loyal to this country and they should be expelled/deported. Our press section responded to this and told them that this was incorrect and Islam teaches being loyal to the law of the land and to love ones’ country. They said in response that this was not what how other Muslims behaved and asked us to write something advisory to them.

Another example of a person who understood the spirit of sacrifice was demonstrated by Sahibzada Abdul Latif Shaheed. The king repeatedly asked him to reject and deny the Promised Messiah(as) and incited him with freedom in return. Every single time Sahibazada Sahib’s reply would be that if God was granting him a death that makes one a recipient of blessings, why would he turn away from it. He said it was a strange ignorant deal to ask for!

Each one of us should try and aspire to become as the Promised Messiah explains and this is not possible without the grace of God. If a person makes effort and becomes like this, then God comes forward and holds such a person and this is when God gives glad-tidings of Paradise and for this He has taught us prayer for steadfastness, prayer for gaining triumph over the enemy. It signifies that by accepting the prayer God will open the doors of triumph in such a way that the enemy will have nowhere to escape.

Synopsis:

English

Hazrat Khalifatul Masih said that about three weeks ago Jama’at Ahmadiyya UK held a conference to commemorate its 100 years in Britain. Scholars and representatives of various religions were invited to present concept of God and religion based on their scriptures. The theme of the conference was God in the 21st Century. Indeed, Islam was going to be represented at the conference and it was done by Hazrat Khalifatul Masih. Other religions represented were Judaism, Hinduism, Buddhism, Druzes and Zoroastrianism. Also present at the event were Sikhs and Baha’i.

Before giving the details Huzoor said that the administration of UK Jama’at which organised such a big event did not promote it ahead of time as they should have and were satisfied by simply organising it and anticipating a large number of guests. This was a chance to introduce the Jama’at on a wide scale and disseminate the beautiful teaching of Islam to as many people as possible. If the media had been contacted properly it would have produced better results than what we have as a result of efforts Ameer Sahib and his team is making now.

Baroness Warsi said: ‘It is an honour to speak before such an illustrious audience in such prestigious surrounding here at the conference of world religions. It is a testament to the openness and the pragmatism and the humility of the Ahmadiyya community that your flagship global event today is not just about celebrating your own faith but you are celebrating all faiths.

A message from Her Majesty the Queen who is the supreme governor of the Church of England and defender of the faith read: ‘The Queen was pleased to receive your kind message sent on behalf of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Association UK on the occasion of the conference of world religions being held today at Guildhall as part of your centenary celebrations. Her Majesty was interested to learn of the aims of the conference and appreciates your thoughtfulness in writing as you did.
Huzoor told the conference that when God sent the Holy Prophet(saw) to reform the entire world, he surpassed in disseminating the message and not only that, he spent his nights in intense prayer and supplication made to God. In doing so he wept with such anguish and heartache that the place where he prostrated would become submerged in tears. His agony and anguish to reform mankind cannot be described in words.

Huzoor also told the conference that God’s help is with the one He sent in this age, otherwise how could a claimant from a small village in India become renowned throughout the world. And following his passing away without God’s help he could not have left behind such a flourishing community. A community which due to being firmly attached to the institution of Khilafat, was furthering his mission throughout the world.

Next Hazrat Khalifatul Masih said that may the world turn to its Maker, it can only be saved from the destruction that it faces by turning to God. Indeed, the Promised Messiah(as) had warned about this in his writings. Huzoor asked for prayers for the situation in Pakistan. May God save the country from the evil and keep Ahmadis safe and also them safe who wish for peace and wish to avoid conflict and strife. Prayers should also be made about the situation in Syria, may God protect Ahmadis there.

Muslim Leader Inaugurates Second Mosque of Ahmadiyya Muslim Jamaat in Spain

PRESS RELEASE

Hadhrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad opens Baitur Rahman

Spain-1

The World Head of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Jamaat and Fifth Khalifa, Hadhrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad, yesterday inaugurated the Baitur Rahman Mosque in Valencia. It is the second Ahmadiyya Muslim Mosque to be built in Spain, following on from the historical Basharat Mosque in Pedro Abad which was opened in 1982.

Baitur Rahman was inaugurated as the Khalifa of the Promised Messiah led the Friday Prayers from the Mosque. The event was broadcast live globally on MTA International.

During his hour-long address, Hadhrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad spoke about the significance of the new Mosque and of its location. He said he had purposely chosen Valencia, because centuries ago, when Spanish rulers set out to remove all traces of Islam from the country, the local Muslims continued to practice their faith until they were forcibly banished.

Hadhrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad also talked about demographic changes occurring in the Spanish population. He said that the Muslim population had greatly increased in the past 30 years and was set to increase further in the coming decades. Therefore it was the responsibility of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Jamaat in Spain to propagate the true and peaceful message of Islam to the Spanish people.

“Islam’s re-entry into Spain was made through the Ahmadiyya Muslim Jamaat when it built the Basharat Mosque. However today, we will only come to see the real Islam flourish in this country when the servants of the Promised Messiah, realising their significance, strive to spread the beautiful and pure teachings of Islam to every single person in Spain.”

Hadhrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad said that underpinning all efforts made by the Ahmadiyya Muslim Jamaat to spread Islam was the Qur’anic injunction that “There should be no compulsion in religion”. In light of this teaching, Ahmadi Muslims would seek to win the hearts of the Spanish people with love, compassion and kindness.

“The Spanish people are the fellow citizens of the Ahmadi Muslims who live here and to fellow countrymen we must spread the message of love and peace. We must seek to win the hearts of the Spanish people by displaying the beautiful and pure teachings of Islam.”

Hadhrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad concluded by praying:

“May this Mosque prove to be a means of presenting the true and beautiful image of Islam to the Spanish people and may all Ahmadi Muslims who live here fulfil their responsibilities in this regard.”

To further mark the occasion, Hadhrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad, also unveiled a plaque to commemorate the inauguration of the Mosque.

PRESS RELEASE

World Muslim Leader congratulates Pope Francis and Catholic Church

Hadhrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad prays for unity and inter-faith harmony
The Ahmadiyya Muslim Jamaat would like to offer its congratulations to the Roman Catholic Church and its members across the world upon the election of His Holiness, Pope Francis I.

The World Head of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Jamaat and Fifth Khalifa of the Promised Messiah, His Holiness, Hadhrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad has said:

“First of all, I would like to offer congratulations to Pope Francis I and to Catholics across the world. May the appointment of the new Pope prove to be blessed not just for Christians but for all people across the globe. May the new Pope lead the Church towards the true teachings of Christianity.

I hope and pray that in the forthcoming era the Pope uses his influence to develop peace and harmony in the world. There is a great need to join together upon our common teachings and particularly upon the Unity of God.
Rather than increase division, the world desperately needs unity and compassion. This is something that I wrote to Pope Benedict XVI in a letter I sent to him in 2011.

In my letter to the Pope I also requested him to use his great influence to bring the people of the world together towards peace, reconciliation and mutual understanding and to strive to prevent the world from destruction. I send the same message to the new Pope as well.

In terms of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Jamaat, we have always been at the forefront of promoting inter-faith harmony and striving for peace. We always co-operate with all people and organisations who desire peace and tolerance and will forever continue to do so.

Once again I congratulate Pope Francis and the Catholic Church and pray that the appointment proves to be a source of peace for the entire world.”
