Ahmadiyya Khalifa’s Special Message to Ahmadis & the World Addressing the Global Rise in Islamophobia
Posted on November 7th, 2020

By A. Abdul Aziz.

Supreme Head of the Worldwide Ahmadiyya Muslim Community in Islam His Holiness Hazrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad (May Allah strengthen his hands) made an appeal for special prayers during his Friday Sermon delivered on 6th November 2020, at Masjid Mubarak, Islamabad, Tilford, U.K.   

His Holinesssaid that we pray for ourselves and our Community, but we must also pray for the entire Muslim world. There are some world leaders who harbour malice and spread very negative thoughts and ideas regarding Islam. These days, rather than believing in God, these leaders consider the general public to be their god and change their policies and their statements according to their wishes. They lead their people astray by proclaiming that there is no God, whilst they consider the people whom they lead to be everything. Even if they do not explicitly make such comments, they harbour prejudice towards Islam, and the general public is also against Islam due to being unaware of its true teachings. Hence it is the duty of Ahmadi Muslims to present the true image of Islam.

His Holinesssaid that in recent days, the French President openly made comments against Islam, saying that it is in ‘crisis.’ If anything is in crisis it is their own religion; that is if they even adhere to any religion. As far as Islam is concerned, it is a living, growing and prospering religion. God Almighty has ensured that it continues to spread throughout the world, and as a result of the efforts made by the Community of the Promised Messiah, peace be on him, it is spreading to all the corners of the earth.

Ahmadiyya Khalifa said that these anti-Islamic forces and individuals are able to attack Islam in this manner because they are aware that there is no unity in the Muslim world. His Holiness commended the Canadian Prime Minister, who refuted that comments of the French President, saying that comments which explicitly injure the religious sentiments of others should be abstained from. His Holinesssaid that if only other world leaders could think like the Canadian Prime Minister and to act upon it to ensure the peace and security of the world. His Holinesssubsequently prayed for the Canadian Prime Minister.

His Holinesssaid that if the Muslim world had been united, then never would such forces rise against Islam. Muslim countries are all against one another but if the world could see them united, they would never commit such acts, nor would a newspaper publish heinous depictions of the Holy ProphetMuhammad (PBUH). His Holinesssaid that a few years ago, when such cartoons were published, some Muslim countries raised a hue and cry for some time and announced they would boycott their products, but then it all disappeared within a few months. It was in fact the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community which responded in the true, Islamic fashion which was appreciated by people and leaders around the world. In truth, the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community continues these efforts today and states in response that the actions of a few misguided people cannot be regarded as the true Islam. It is not the place of any world leader to label the actions of a few people as Islam, or to label Islam as being in ‘crisis’ and that they will continue to fight against the religion. It is in fact such people who incite the emotions and actions of others. His Holinesssaid that publishing such cartoons surely injures the sentiments of any true Muslim; and if they continue to publish such things and remain persistent in their actions, then they themselves are inciting others to commit unlawful acts. Yet, these are things which are labelled as ‘freedom of expression’. Thus, it is the non-Muslim world which incites these actions.

Hazrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad continued to say that in a series of previous sermons, he highlighted what the true response of true Muslims should be in such situations, and this was much appreciated by the world. Above all, His Holinesssaid that we must continue sending Durood [salutations] upon the Holy Prophet(PBUH) and continue to pray. No matter how much we may be opposed by Muslim clerics, we will continue to defend and spread the true message of Islam. The killing of three or four people is only an expression of momentary, misguided passion. Such acts however, do not present any real solution to the problem. If Muslims world desires a true and permanent solution, then the entire Muslim world must unite as one. In response to the French President’s comments, a Turkish President and a few other leaders have made some comments. However, the impact of such comments is nothing compared to the impact of a response from a united Muslim world. Some say that the French President changed some of his statements in light of the response from the Turkish President, however desire this, he remained firm in his stance against Islam. If all the Muslim countries had united and raised their voice as one, then the French President would have been compelled to seek forgiveness and repent.

Ahmadiyya Supreme Head (Khalifa) said that we must pray for the Muslim world to at least be able to show others that they are united. Only then will true change come about.

His Holiness said that we will continue in our mission, for it is the responsibility of those who have accepted the Messiah of this age to spread the true teachings of Islam, and show the world the extremely beautiful example of the Holy Prophetof Islam Muhammad (PBUH). We should not rest, until the entire world does not gather under the flag of the Holy Prophet(PBUH). We must inform the world, that their salvation lies in recognising the One, True God and cease the committing of injustices.

His Holinessfurther said that in recent months during the pandemic, he wrote to certain world leaders, including the President of France, in which he warned them in the words of Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad – the Promised Messiahthat such calamities strike the world due to the grave injustices being carried out. Thus, true justice must be established, and only such statements should be made which are based in the truth.

His Holinesssaid that we have been fulfilling our responsibilities and will continue doing so. Now it is up to the world if they wish to take heed or not. In any case, we must not forget the Muslim world in our prayers. His Holinessprayed that they may be able to recognize the Promised Messiah, who was the true servant of the Holy Prophet(PBUH). The world must realize that if it continues to move away from God, then it will only result in their ruin. Thus, we must continue our efforts of helping the world in recognizing the Unity of God. His Holinessappealed for everyone to pray for the general conditions of the world; lest it be that after passing through the calamity of this pandemic, the world is stricken by another calamity in the form of a world war. His Holinessprayed that may the world come to its senses and recognise the One, True God and fulfill the duties and responsibilities owed to Him.

    WHAT IS THE NEED TO PRAY TO AN ALL POWERFUL GOD. IF HE IS ALL POWERFUL HE SHOULD KNOW WHAT TO DO INSTEAD OF WAITING TO HEAR FROM SOMEBODY CRYING IN PAIN. HE SHOULD BE OMNISCIENT, ALL SEEING AND OMNIPRESENT.

    IT IS A PATHETIC GOD WHO SENDS VIRUSES TO KILL THE INNOCENTS AS A WAY OF PUNISHMENT! CAN THE CREATOR PUNISH HIS OWN CREATION?

    PRAYING IS A CRY IN THE DARK! BELIEF IS A ROAD TO A DEAD END! ONLY SALVATION IS TO REALIZE THAT YOU ARE CLIMBING THE WRONG HIL, RETURN TO SANITY AND SEEK!

    BEST OF LUCK!
