by Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad, The Promised Messiah and Mahdi(as)
Khutbah Ilhamiyyah (‘The Revealed Sermon’) is an Arabic sermon delivered by Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad, the Promised Messiah(as), on the occasion of Eid-ul-Adha. On that very morning of 11 April 1900, he had received the Divine revelation, ‘Today you will deliver the speech in Arabic; you have been endowed with this ability.’
Accordingly, he stood up before a live audience of approximately 200 people and began to deliver the sermon ad lib. A stream of eloquently structured sentences in the Arabic language began to flow forth in rapid succession, highlighting the nature and essence of the Islamic philosophy of sacrifice. We present here the actual text of the sermon as transcribed by two audience members while the sermon was simultaneously being delivered.
Khutbah Ilhamiyyah is an insightful read for anyone seeking to behold a Divine miracle in all its grandeur and glory, and the profound mysteries deeply embedded within the Arabic language.
