Connect with Khilafat

  1. The Friday sermon is a part of the Friday Prayer and one should strive to arrive for the sermon, not just the prayers. In this era, God has bestowed us with the blessings of MTA. In Europe and Africa, the Friday prayer timings are the same. When this is the case, we should hear the sermon of the Khalifa of the time. In those nations where the time is not the same, the sermon should be heard live or watched later as a recording. The missionaries should narrate a summary that same Friday or the next Friday. This is a great way to establish unity within the Jama’at. (July 1, 2016).
  2. Recently, hundreds of Khuddam of various ages from Canada and USA came to meet Huzoor in London. Some of them had recently taken Bai’at. They stayed for three days. Following the visit, their feelings changed. They expressed amazing sincerity and loyalty, which was astonishing to behold. They also expressed their feelings on their return home and mentioned bringing about changes in themselves. They promised to be regular in Salat, they promised to be regular in their association with Jama’at, they promised to continue and develop/enhance their connection with Khilafat. Previously, neither had they been informed much about Khilafat, nor had they had much experience. No doubt, meeting in person develops a personal connection and love on both sides. But if scholars and officeholders continue to mention the significance of Khilafat among the Jama’at, faith is strengthened and polished. (May 29, 2015).
  3. Religious scholars should educate newcomers and youngsters about [establishing a] true connection with Khilafat. Officeholders are also responsible for this, some of whom have little knowledge of religion. (May 29, 2015).
  4. People should develop in righteousness and in connecting with Khilafat. Some officeholders think it is sufficient to commemorate Khilafat Day once a year. Huzoor had mentioned this earlier as well, with reference to Hazrat Musleh Mau’ud (may Allah be pleased with him) that adequate emphasis is not given to Khilafat in the Jama’at. Since then, some effort has been made, but there is room for improvement. (May 29, 2015).
  5. Huzoor said to officeholders and workers of the Jama’at that they have been blessed and enabled to serve the Jama’at, merely owing to a connection with Khilafat. He said it was incredible for people to assume that their knowledge, intellect or hard work was behind any good results/success. In matters of faith, there can be no blessing at all without Khilafat – as it has been historically proven. (May 29, 2015).
  6. It is love and loyalty to Khilafat that attracts God’s grace and brings about good results/success, because Khilafat is a system God established. If officeholders feel any element of self-importance, they should do istaghfar. If the awareness of those with religious knowledge, wisdom of the wise, and intellect of those with worldly knowledge and skill of experts brings extraordinary results in Jama’at work, it is only due to a connection with Khilafat because God has promised blessings in this regard. Knowledge and skill can work in worldly matters, but in Jama’at matters everything works due to the blessings of Khilafat. (May 29, 2015).
  7. Words of the Khalifa should be relayed again and again and again to the Jama’at until even those of little intelligence understand them. (May 29, 2015).
  8. Inculcating correct insight and perception of Khilafat is also an important task among the tasks of missionaries, and it is also the responsibility of officeholders to pay attention to this. Some instances are brought up where people say that the Khalifa of the time has done this and that incorrect, has given a wrong decision, or such and such decision should have been this way, etc. It is especially the task of the missionaries to make them understand that all blessings are in the nizam, and when God wishes to curse a body of people He removes the nizam from among them. When these facts will be known to all, those who stumble will be saved. (January 24, 2014).
  9. If the Tarbiyat department continues to counsel members to strengthen their connection with Khilafat and keep drawing their attention to all the Jama’at programs and khutbat (sermons) and activities, then we will see that, while their connection to Khilafat will get stronger, there also will be automatic resolution of many tarbiyat issues. (August 16, 2013).
  10. [Referring to MTA and Alislam.org] It must be our focus and work to try and insure that every Ahmadi is connected to these tools as much as possible and the Jama’at system, nizam and that of the auxiliaries must also work towards this end. (August 16, 2013).
  11. Huzoor cautioned against the point of view of not bothering the Khalifa with all sort of grievances and said that as Allah appoints Khalifa, it is Him, Who, through His Grace, grants the Khalifa exceptional fortitude and courage to bear all kinds of problems and pain. Therefore, all officeholders should abandon this thought and make decisions based on taqwa (righteousness) and pure intentions, and keep the Khalifa informed. (July 1, 2005).
  12. Some people claim that such and such officeholder is a flawed person, therefore they can only obey the Khalifa. Unless the entire nizam is obeyed, one cannot obey the Khalifa in spirit. However, if one observes something that needs to be reported, they should do so and then draw back. (December 31, 2004).
  13. The higher the standards of the Community in general, the more it will be reflective among the officeholders. [Huzoor enjoined us to] demonstrate high standards of obedience to ensure that the next generations will in make officeholders of high morals. (December 31, 2004).
