During the Caliphate of Hazrat Khalifat al-Masih the Second(ra) many conspiracies were hatched against the Community. Some of these plots were so scary that in all likelihood Jamaat could have been wiped off the face of the earth, God forbid. Huzoor overcame every obstacle with amazing courage. He foretold that every plot would fail and that the caravan of Ahmadiyyat would always march forward. Every prediction made by Huzoor came true. With the grace & mercy of Allah every plot failed & the caravan of Ahmadiyya Jamaat confidently moved forward. Praise & glory be to the Lord.
Some of these sinister plots are briefly described hereunder:
“The ground is slipping from under the feet of the enemy. I can foresee their imminent defeat.” (Farooq, 21st November 1934)
Soon after this announcement, God Almighty changed the circumstances in such a way that the Ahrars lost face among the Muslims. Everyone realized the reality of the hollow slogans. They cooked their own goose by taking on the Jamaat. Everything the beloved man of God had predicted came true.
“God Almighty has established the Ahmdadiya Jamaat. If these people win then we admit we were on the wrong path, but if we are on the right path, then they will assuredly fail”. (Al-Fazl, February 15th, 1953).
Then suddenly out of the blue the situation changed so dramatically that this mischief also fizzled out. Those who were the ringleaders of the mischief were humiliated. Everyone is a witness that God Almighty came to the rescue of the Jamaat with His grace. Those who had intended to wipe out the Jamaat were themselves wiped out from the face of the earth.
This initiative proved very fruitful. Scores of missions have been established in many countries of the world, resulting in thousands of people accepting Islam. The Holy Quran has been translated into numerous languages. It set in motion a wave of sacrifice and sincerity. Many youths offered to devote their lives for the sake of religion. Gradually this fund shaped itself into a permanent fund. The target for this fund was initially set at 23,500 rupees, however the annual budget soon reached a whopping 3.6 million rupees.
Every member of the Community donates toward this fund once a year with a spirit of sacrifice. The vast network of mission houses operating around the globe is due mainly to this fund. Details about this project have been given in previous pages under the heading Propagation of Islam.
