Today's Friday sermon was delivered by Khalifatul Masih V (may Allah be his Helper) from Bait-un-Noor Mosque, Calgary, Canada. After Tashahhud and Surah Fatihah he said that Promised Messiah (peace be on him) at one time while shedding light on financial sacrifices said that in this world human beings love wealth very much that is why it is written in the books of interpretation of dreams that if in a dream someone takes out and gives his liver that means he had given his wealth. That is why it is said that for to achieve real advancement and faith it is mentioned in the Holy Quran "Never shall you attain to righteousness unless you spend out of that which you love." Because compassion and hospitality with the creations of God is the second huge part without which the faith cannot be perfect and firm. Unless one sacrifices how one can benefits others. For the benefits and compassions sacrifice is necessary. And in this verse "Never shall you attain to righteousness unless you spend out of that which you love" that teachings and guidance are provided. Thus spending in the cause of God Almighty is also a criterion and right of one's event and is ones righteousness.
Huzoor (may Allah be his Helper) said that he will read another quote of Promised Messiah (peace be on him) in which he said that the acceptance from God Almighty which is in reality the reason for real happiness cannot be attained unless the temporary sufferings are not tolerated. Then he said blessed are those who for the approval of God Almighty do not care for temporary sufferings because faithful attains the light of eternal happiness and continual comfort after bearing temporary sufferings.
Huzoor (may Allah be his Helper) said that people of today think that to accumulate the wealth and then spending it for their calm and comfort can bring them the happiness and lull. But a faithful who has a real cognition and awareness of the religion understands that though God Almighty has created the amenities and facilities of the world for the human beings yet the real purpose of life is to acquire the acceptance by the God Almighty. And tread on the path of righteousness and deliver the rights of God Almighty and the rights of His creature. God Almighty has mentioned this subject matter in the aforesaid verse. Promised Messiah (peace be on him) has further explained it that the real calm comes from good deeds and not by accumulating the wealth. And good deeds cannot attain acceptance until the most beloved thing is spent in the cause of God Almighty and for the betterment of His creature. Promised Messiah (peace be on him) said that the wealth is such a thing that man loves it the most.
Huzoor (may Allah be his Helper) said that if today we review the world situation it will reveal that behind all the panic, disorder, and disturbances is the love and lust of the wealth. Then Huzoor (may Allah be his Helper) mentioned another thing that a worldly person does not know that if he had accumulated lot of wealth how he should be spending it. In these western countries which are called the advanced countries there are very rich people in there but what are their expanses? Here they have places like casinos where they extravagantly spend for their gratification and spend on gambling. Muslim countries have similar situation, Muslims come here for spend extravagantly for their gratification. Now Muslims countries also have places where they can spend money lavishly. Huzoor (may Allah be his Helper) said that sometimes ago in a journal he had seen an advertisement for a hotel in Dubai for ice cream. The advertised price of ice cream was $850 which contained two or three scoops only. It was mentioned that it include Saffron of different regions and it is covered with gold leaf. Huzoor (may Allah be his Helper) said that $850 is enough for a good living for a family in a poor country but these people spend it on a cup of ice cream. Those who have unlimited wealth and do not know how to spend and how to get satisfaction from their money. No doubt they do spend but they do so for their satisfaction on luxuries only and not for the pleasure of God Almighty or for good deeds. But God Almighty says and the Promised Messiah (peace be on him) has explained it that for the real growth and for seeking faith, for the pleasure of God Almighty, for increasing in faith, instead of spending on the lust and luxuries they should be spending for the compassion and betterment of the creation of God Almighty. If not for this cause then cannot acquire the love of God Almighty. For the compassion of the creation where it is necessary to satisfy the worldly needs of the needy there it is important to take care of their faith and belief and bring them closer to God Almighty.
Huzoor (may Allah be his Helper) said that Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) used be worried and it is mentioned in the Holy Qur'an where God Almighty says, "will you kill yourself for these people." What was the condition of those people which was making him worried? It was their aloofness from God Almighty and aloofness from faith. Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) was worried due to this reason also that they will come under the wrath of God Almighty for not believing Him. Other than material provisions for which it is necessary to spend wealth, for Ahmadies it is necessary to spend wealth for their spiritual provisions also. Because now the completion of the propagation of guidance is entrusted to Promised Messiah (peace be on him). The guidance which Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) brought for whole of mankind and for which he was worried to dissemination the message. This is the time for its completion when all the sources are available. Huzoor (may Allah be his Helper) said as it was entrusted to Promised Messiah (peace be on him) similarly it is now entrusted to his followers. It is entrusted to those who proclaim that they give precedence to religion over the worldly affairs.
Rich people spend on their lust; they have so much wealth they do not know where to spend and how to spend. After spending on all their needs and wants they don't know where to spend rest of the money. Their spiritual and humanitarian fields are usually empty and except lust and absurdity they do not know anything else. But the faithful is one to whom God Almighty says that not only spend from extra wealth but to get real good deeds and in result to that get the love of God Almighty put yourselves in discomfort and spend from that wealth which you love. Though some rich people spend in charities also but their spending for charity is very small against their wealth. And then they are not consistent. Thus, it is only faithful who spends regularly to complete good causes and to earn goodness. And in this time and age it is the Jama'at Ahmadiyya a group of those faithful who spends under a system – who spends for the propagation of Islam. They spend on many different venues. They spend for the propagation of Islam and for the compassion of the creation considering it their right they spend on them. And then there are many who spend by putting themselves in discomfort. They spend with such certainty that where it will bring them closer to God Almighty and His mercy there they have this contentment that it will be spent rightly. Even the outsiders admit that the monetary system and spending system of the Jama'at is the best.
Huzoor (may Allah be his Helper) said that our Missionary from Kababir has written an incident, he said that two retired professors from University of Jerusalem with their two guests visited our mission house in Kababir. We had a meeting and discussions and we showed them the system of the Jama'at. One of the guests was a professor from Austria at the end of the meeting he said that the best thing I like about Jama'at Ahmadiyya is its financial system. He further said that to bring revolution with the pure wealth is your destiny and congratulations for that.
Huzoor (may Allah be his Helper) said that for donations the pure wealth is necessary. God Almighty says that spend from the pure wealth, the one which is earned rightly and not earned fraudulently. Not saved from the taxes. Or not earned through any other wrong means. Thus donations are received only from them whose earnings are pure or at least it should be known that it is not earned through wrong means. And if it is earned through wrong means then the system of the Jama'at do not receive their donations. And if knowingly donation is taken then either donations are returned or the officials are removed from their positions. Thus the real thing is, give donations sacrificing from pure wealth. This is how blessing will add. Huzoor (may Allah be his Helper) said that the outsiders admit it also as the professor admitted. This thing became evident on that worldly person that these are the people who will bring the revolution. Thus as long as our intentions will remain pure, as long as we will keep earning righteously and spend that in the cause of God Almighty then definitely we will be able to bring revolution. And this revolution is destined with us. Because it is a promise of God Almighty with Promised Messiah (peace be on him). We don't have to bring any worldly revolution rather we are bringing a spiritual revolution. We have to spread the message of Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) around the world. Establish oneness of God Almighty and give the rights of the creature. And these are not just worldly slogans. Rather God Almighty had promised to Promised Messiah (peace be on him) for establishing the group of heartfelt and pure loyalists who will complete this task. Who will give every sacrifice for the completion of his tasks.
Huzoor (may Allah be his Helper) said that Promised Messiah (peace be on him) talking about faithfulness of his Jama'at that the companions of the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) showed such an example of faithfulness and loyalty which is unparalleled in this world. They took all kinds of sufferings easy upon themselves, so much so that they left their beloved countries, separated from their properties, belongings, families and friends. This is how I see my Jama'at that God Almighty according to the level and status bestowed enthusiasm and accordingly they show the pigmentation of their loyalty and faithfulness Promised Messiah (peace be on him) said. Huzoor (may Allah be his Helper) said that then talking about the financial sacrifices Promised Messiah (peace be on him) said that for the religious purposes and objectives members of my Jama'at had always given donations with open heart. He further said that everybody took part according to his capacity and affordability. God knows better with what kind of loyalty and faithfulness they take part in donations. He said that I know very well that my Jama'at has shown that faithfulness and loyalty which companions of Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) showed at the time of difficulties.
Huzoor (may Allah be his Helper) said that at one time Promised Messiah (peace be on him) seeing the level of sacrifices of his companions mentioned the condition how they were sacrificing. Huzoor (may Allah be his Helper) said thus Promised Messiah (peace be on him) instilled such revolution in his followers that they threw their worldly desires behind their backs and gave preference to the religion. But the spirit of the sacrifice he instilled in his companions those companions who directly took oath of allegiance at his hands did that spirit died, did it end there, was it only for that time, if that is true and if it is so then there would have been no progress in the Jama'at. God Almighty promised him that He will give him reputation to the corners of earth with honor. And for that a loyal and sacrificing Jama'at was required. Similarly after receiving this glad tiding from God Almighty he passed on this glad tiding to Jama'at that after him a system of Caliphate will start which will complete his task after him and attached to that the sincere members will help complete this task. Thus, today we see how God Almighty fulfills His promises. There is a Jama'at of sincere members who attached to the Caliph are sacrificing their lives, wealth, and honor. Huzoor (may Allah be his Helper) said when I will announce new year of Tehrik-e-Jadid I will mention some events of sacrifices which pertain to financial sacrifices.
Huzoor (may Allah be his Helper) said that these incidents are not from rich countries rather they are from very poor countries and of new converts. How God Almighty changed their hearts it is amazing. Despite of being very poor how they are increased in their sacrifices.
Huzoor (may Allah be his Helper) said that one of the Missionary in charge writes that an Imam entered into fold of Jama'at along with his mosque. When he was told about the financial sacrifices of the Jama'at and Tehri-e-Jadid he said that he himself has been giving lectures on donations and Zakat. But, he said that he had never seen such a strong financial system anywhere else neither he had heard about such system. Hence he paid the donation and promised that every month not only him but whole the Jama'at will pay donation regularly. Huzoor (may Allah be his Helper) said these are poor of the poorest but for sacrifices they reach to the top. This is not a story of one country Huzoor (may Allah be his Helper) said this wind is blowing in many countries of the world.
Huzoor (may Allah be his Helper) said that the missionary of Ivory Cost writs that they went to a village for tableegh where they delivered the message of the Jama'at. All men and women listened to it very carefully. One of the friends said that many times before people have come for tableegh here but never heard such a good message. Anyhow around three hundred people accepted Ahmadiyyat. After that they were told about the financial system and other systems of the Jama'at. And during the discussion it was also mentioned that today is the last day for Tahrik-e-Jadid. Knowing that the chief and the Imam of the mosque said that even if we have accepted the Ahmadiyyat today yet by all means will take part in this blessed scheme. Anyhow, the people of the village immediately collected ten thousand Franks and paid for Tehrik-e-Jadid.
Huzoor (may Allah be his Helper) mentioned another event from Tanznia. There was a member his pledge was for two Lacks Shillings. He had already paid one Lack while there was one Lack balance to be paid. They say that in October he was reminded that he had one Lack Shillings balance and the year is ending. He said that he was travelling but he would arrange the money. Thus he sent his balance money through a bus driver. He told the driver that this was his donation and it must be delivered today. So as he arrives there he should deliver this money to the Missionary. He gave him the name and address of the missionary. Thus as driver arrived at the bus station he made a phone call to the Missionary and told him that he has his money he can come and collect it. When Missionary came to collect the money he told him that he also wanted to become Ahmadi.
Huzoor (may Allah be his Helper) said that bus driver's children and wife had already accepted Ahmadiyyat but he was not converting as he was not satisfied. The driver told Missionary that he was moved by this incident that in this material world where man love wealth, and we are from poor area. How God Almighty had made these people who spend in the cause of God Almighty and get real calm. Huzoor (may Allah be his Helper) this is how sending donation of an Ahmadi became the reason for a non Ahmadi to convert to Ahmadiyyat. Thus these are the donation given in good faith which brings immediate results. The financial sacrifice which was given from a beloved wealth became the reason for guidance of good spirit. This is how God Almighty uses different sources to rewards with fruits.
Huzoor (may Allah be his Helper) said that similarly Ameer sahib of Senegal writs that one of their Jama'at member Omar sahib's father who was not Ahmadi came from other city with a serious illness. After basic checkup Doctors suggested operation of prostate. But Omar sahib did not have enough money for the operation. And it was difficult to take that big loan also. He was very worried. Ameer sahib wrote that on the first week of October during the Friday sermon he reminded Jama'at members the next day Omar sahib came and asked to make receipt of his donation. As Ameer sahib knew his financial situation Ameer sahib asked him that his father is ill and he needs money for his treatment in such situation how he will make this sacrifice. Omar sahib said that yesterday in the sermon you said that this is a deal with God Almighty and I have come to make this deal with God Almighty. Hence you cut my receipt.
Ameer sahib further wrote that two days later when he went to Omar sahib's home to see his father. His father was sitting on a chair outside of the home. Later on Omar sahib came and said that today my trading with God Almighty became successful because my father did not have any pain and he is feeling better. After two day when they took him to doctor for check up doctor said that now operation is not needed. After this incident his father also accepted Ahmadiyyat.
Huzoor (may Allah be his Helper) said that these are net transaction sometimes God Almighty do. He said that last week at the time of inauguration of the mosque he had told an incident of a person who gave precedent to serving mosque and God Almighty arranged for him a large amount of money. A worldly person may consider it a chance but a believer believes that most certainly it was a blessing of God Almighty.
Huzoor (may Allah be his Helper) said that similarly there is a Jama'at in Congo, Kinshasa. Ayub sahib a member of Jama'at says that previously he did not take part in any Jama'at activities. He said his son was continuously ill and lot of money was spent on his treatments. He said that when he was given the responsibility of Secretary Finance he thought that his financial sacrifice should be an example for the Jama'at. Huzoor (may Allah be his Helper) said that in a remote and small part of world when a person is given the responsibility of Secretary Finance his financial sacrifices become exemplary. He further said that he started giving donations regularly and with the blessings of that his financial condition started improving. Life started becoming calm and happy. Now his son is also safe from sicknesses. He said that he thinks that it is all due to service of the Jama'at and financial sacrifices.
Huzoor (may Allah be his Helper) said that we all have heard the idiom, sacrifice by cutting your stomach but it is difficult to reach its depth its meanings unless it is experienced. But looking at the sacrifices of the poor it becomes easy to understand its meanings. Huzoor (may Allah be his Helper) said that a woman from Gambia accepted Ahmadiyyat and when she was told about Tehrik-e-Jadid she said that she had only one hundred Dalasi to buy rice and she did not have any rice. She further said that her only son has disappeared for last two years and people say that he might have been dead as for last two years there is no news about him. With that she offered that money for the Tehrik-e-Jadid and said that God Almighty will arrange for her. After three days from this incident her son came back and brought with him ten bags of rice and big amount of money. He told that during the time he was missing he was learning the building construction and now he was getting big size construction contracts in the city. On this she herself said that it was due to my sacrifice and now on I will always do so.
Huzoor (may Allah be his Helper) said is it not a revolution that by accepting Promised Messiah (peace be on him) God Almighty has created in the people living in such remote area. Huzoor (may Allah be his Helper) said most certainly it is. He said look at this woman what a height her faithfulness has attained. She did not care for her hunger and then God Almighty had blessed her with His favors.
Huzoor (may Allah be his Helper) said that from Mali our Missionary writes that a woman who is eighty years old and she gives her donations regularly. One day she came walking from one kilometer in hot sun to give her donation. Missionary said that he would have come to collect it but she said since she had heard the importance of financial sacrifice she did not want to waste its blessings so she thought that she should come herself and deliver the donation. She walked to mission house in hot sun to save the cost of transportation and added that money to her donation. Huzoor (may Allah be his Helper) said that this is the status of the people who live in remote areas. He said that the way God Almighty reinforces the faith of the Ahmadies through personal experiences is evident from every incident.
Huzoor (may Allah be his Helper) said that Missionary from Benin Zakria sahib narrates an incident and says that the President of one of chapters lost his job and he was worried. During those days he was reminded about Tehrik-e-Jadid. After few days he called and said the when he was reminded about the Tehrik-e-Jadid donation he was very worried and prayed to God Almighty to provide him some source so as he can pay the donation. He said that he spent the night in agony. In the morning after praying Fajr he went to a nearby village to seek a work. He said that he did not get any job there but there was a person who was going to market for selling his animals. He said that he helped him and in return he gave him 500 Franks. From that he spent 200 Franks for food and gave 100 Franks to his child who goes to school and rest 200 franks he paid his donation for Tehrik-e-Jadid. He said that due to paying donation God Almighty blessed him and exactly after four days he got a job. He said that it may not be just an incident it must be the blessing of God Almighty.
Huzoor (may Allah be his Helper) said that after Africa there are incidents from India also. Their inspector Shahabuddin sahib who is inspector Tehrik-e-Jadid for Talangana and Andhra writs that a friend from Hyderabad who is from a poor family started business with Rs.20,000. He is running a small shop. At the time of prayers he closes his shop. Huzoor (may Allah be his Helper) said that this is the glory of a faithful. He gives one month full income for Tehrik-e-Jadid donation. This year he paid Rs.60,000 for Tehrik-e-Jadid. He lives in a rented house. Inspector sahib said that one day he asked him why he doesn't buy his own home. He replied that let it run as it is because this world anyway is going towards destruction. So why I should be collecting money it is better that I spend in the cause of God Almighty.
Huzoor (may Allah be his Helper) said that similarly from Pakistan Naib Wakeel ul Mal writs that he met a Khadim from Sialkot who had pledge of Rs.20,000. He said that he asked him to increase to Rs.100,000 on which he agreed. He started export business he used pay Rs.5000 and then Rs. 10,000 and then Rs.15,000 and then he increased it to Rs.100,000. He said that it is due to the blessing of the donations that he had purchased that factory which he had rented.
Huzoor (may Allah be his Helper) said that similarly from Indonesia a Missionary writs that there was a person who said that if he had a motorcycle it will be easy for him to go for Friday prayer with his son. Huzoor (may Allah be his Helper) said that our Missionary told him to pray and be regular in donations. Missionary sahib said that he paid his and his family's donations regularly. After few days God Almighty blessed him and he was able to buy a motorcycle. His household income was increased he has done Wasiyyat also and now he has three motorcycles in his home.
Huzoor (may Allah be his Helper) said that here in Canada also there are people who increased their donations. A person increased his donation from $1000 to $ 5000 and to reap the blessings of God Almighty he paid it in the beginning. He paid $20,000 for the construction of the mosque also.
Huzoor (may Allah be his Helper) said that similarly there are some faith inspiring incidents here also. There was a woman who had a pledge of $1000. But she did not have money. In the evening her husband called her and said that such and such person had given him check. On that she asked him is it a $1000? He replies yes, but how did she know, he asked. She said that she was worried that she had to pay $1000 for Tehrik-e-Jadid. So she thought that it must be an arrangement from God Almighty so it must be same amount.
Huzoor (may Allah be his Helper) said similarly there are European countries new Jama'at are being created there. Missionary of Micronesia writs that due to poverty there is a scarcity of jobs. There are a large number of people who do not have any source of income. Either they depend on their relatives to get some money from them or some work for a day or two on which they live. Among them there is an old person who loves to work for the Jama'at and spend almost all of his time to serve Jama'at. Even if there is no work for the Jama'at he tries to do something which should benefit Jama'at. For last one year he was collecting empty cans to sell them to recycle for some money. For whole year he has been collecting cans and then he sold them to recycle for $30.00. Then he went to mission house and gave $10.00 for his Tehrik-e-Jadid donation. During the year whatever he had earned he gave one third to the Jama'at.
Huzoor (may Allah be his Helper) said that from Germany Secretary Tehrik-e-Jadid wrote that there is a woman who did not want to expose her name came to Tehrik-e-Jadid office and donated all her jewelry. It was so much that whole of the table was covered with the jewelry. There were necklaces, gold bangles, rings, bracelets, and many other kinds of jewelry. But she said not to reveal her name so that her sacrifice remains for the sake of God Almighty. Huzoor (may Allah be his Helper) said that women love jewelry but it is Ahmadi women who do these sacrifices. Here one Ahmadi woman met me who told me that she has donated all her jewelry. But her in-laws did not like it and they taunt and blame her. Huzoor (may Allah be his Helper) said that God Almighty bless those who spend in His cause and He will most certainly bless this woman also. But those pople should be worried who stop others from financial sacrifices. It is God Who gives wealth and it is He Who can take it back from ungrateful – it should always be remembered. Hence those whose hearts get such thoughts they should repent and seek forgiveness much.
Huzoor (may Allah be his Helper) said that in there are mamny incidents in Russia also. A friend said that he was very poor. He was living in a rented home and was encircled by many financial problems. But he was giving his mandatory contribution and Tehrik-e-Jadid contributions according to his capacity. He said that due to the blessings of the contributions his wife got job with the Government right after finishing her Medical College. And the Government gave them loan for the residence of the children. And now they have two cars also. He said that it is all due the blessings of donations. Earlier we have been paying donations in difficult times but now we have an easy time. Huzoor (may Allah be his Helper) said that God Almighty is blessing people in Russia, in Africa, in Indonesia, in other countries also, and in Europe also. All these blessings of God Almighty are the proof of that which He had promised to Promised Messiah (peace be on him) that He will provide a party of faithful and will increase them in faith also. Those people who march towards God Almighty He increases them in faith also.
Huzoor (may Allah be his Helper) said that there were many incidents of financial sacrifices with him and it became difficult for him to choose which ones to take and which ones not to take. Anyhow I have presented in front of you only few of them. As I said Huzoor (may Allah be his Helper) said that in all the countries there is a same behavior of God Almighty. Those who trust God Almighty He bless them abundantly. For any sane person this is enough proof of the truth of Ahmadiyyat that how God Almighty bless those who sacrifice for His cause. Huzoor (may Allah be his Helper) said it is because these donation are spent for the propagation of God Almighty's religion. People from the poor countries no doubt give donations but their expenditures are very high in comparison to their donations. That is why the center spends the contributions given by the rich countries in those poor countries whose budget does not meet their requirements. Hundreds of schools, dozens of hospitals, hundreds of mission houses, hundreds of mosques are built every year and money is needed for them which is spent from Tehrik-e-Jadid and Waqf-e-Jadid donations. Similarly millions of Dollars are spent on MTA. Though there is an account for MTA donations also and people pay for that also but the expanses are much higher.
Huzoor (may Allah be his Helper) said that regarding MTA I want to say this that according to the survey the practice of watching MTA is not as much as it should be. Or at least members do not listen to my Sermons directly. The Jama'at spends a lot on it for the training of the members. If there is a time difference then the repeat of the sermon should be watched. Lot of outsiders listen to it and then write to me that they are outsiders but they listen to the sermons. MTA is made a medium to connect the Jama'at with the Caliphate. If in your home you will not pay attention towards this then slowly your children will drift away. God Almighty will surely fulfill His promises that He had given to Promised Messiah (peace be on him), insha'Allah – sincere will join also.
Huzoor (may Allah be his Helper) said that you have seen height of the sincerity in new comers. Lest, it should not happen that new comers get all the blessings and old may find refuge in the pride that their fathers and forefathers were Suhaba (companions of Promised Messiah (peace be on him)) and that they are the original Ahmadies. God Almighty does not have any personal relationship with anybody. If the old Ahmadies keep themselves away then it will not matter that their father and forefathers were Suhaba of Promised Messiah (peace be on him). Thus, before this that remorse starts you must connect yourselves to the Caliphate. And for that the best way God Almighty has established is MTA – use it. There are many other good programs on MTA but at least listen to the sermons. Not that Missionary sahib has read the gist and now you know what is said in the sermon. There is a big difference in listening to gist and listening to complete sermon.
Huzoor (may Allah be his Helper) said that as he had said before Tehrik-e-Jadid year has ended and a new year has started. And now I announce the new year of Tehrik-e-Jadid. He said that he thinks that it is for the first time that the new year of Tehrik-e-Jadid is announced from Canada. It is the blessings of God Almighty that Jama'at has expanded so wide. In 1934 Ahrar was talking to finish the Jama'at, turn Qadian in to ruble. At that time Hazrat Muslleh Maud (may Allah be pleased with him) announced the scheme of Tehrik-e-Jadid and planned to send Missionaries around the world. A comprehensive plan of propagation of Islam was hatched. And today by the grace of God Almighty the Jama'at is known all over the world. Jama'at is established in 209 countries of the world. Today as a Jama'at the sun does not set on it. There was a time when Ahrar was talking to erase the Jama'at from Qadian and today from the other corner of the world the servant of the Promised Messiah (peace be on him) is sending his message to the world. The promise which God Almighty had made to Promised Messiah (peace be on him) is fulfilled with great honor. Thus it should be remembered by every Ahmadi that these things put responsibilities on each one of them. And to fulfill these responsibilities it is a responsibility of each of you.
Huzoor (may Allah be his Helper) said that now I announce the new year of Tehrik-e-Jadid. By the Grace of God Almighty the year which ended on October 31st was 82nd year and from first of November 83rd year has already started.
Huzoor (may Allah be his Helper) said that by the Grace of God Almighty the reports which have been received according to that during last year Jama'at Ahmadiyya got the opportunity to make the sacrifice of Sterling 1,933,000.00. Thanks God. This is as compared to last year is in excess of Sterling 701,700.00.
Huzoor (may Allah be his Helper) said that in terms of positions Pakistan is always number one. Otherwise the number one is Germany, 2nd UK, 3rd America, 4th Canada, 5th India, 6th Australia, 7th a middle-eastern country, 8th Indonesia, 9th another middle-eastern Jama'at, 10th Ghana, 11th Switzerland. He said that list should contain only up to 10 but as per person individual payment is very high in Switzerland that is why its name is added at the bottom of the list.
Huzoor (may Allah be his Helper) said that for per person individual payment first number is USA, then Switzerland, UK, Finland, Singapore, Germany, Norway, Japan, and Canada. But before that there are five Jama'ats from Middle-East we don't announce their names. In African countries for total aggregate collection, number one was Mauritius, then Ghana, Nigeria, Gambia, South Africa, Burkina Faso, Cameron, Sierra Leon, Liberia, Tanzania, and Mali.
Huzoor (may Allah be his Helper) said that regarding numbers of participants 90,000 new people entered and total participants are 1,404,000. The best effort to increase the participants was made by Benin, Niger, Mali, Burkina Faso, Ghana, Liberia, Senegal, and Cameron. He said this is where everyone should pay attention all over in the world.
Huzoor (may Allah be his Helper) said that by the Grace of God Almighty Daftar Awal is still open and continue and payments are coming some by their survivors of the deceased and some from those who are still alive. In Pakistan there are three large Jama'at. Among them number one is Lahore, two Rabwah, and three Karachi. Then regarding sacrifices first ten cities are as follows: Islamabad, Multan, Quetta, Peshawar, Gujranwala, Hyderabad, Hafiz Abad, Mianwali, Kotli, Khanewal, and Bahawalpur.
Huzoor (may Allah be his Helper) said that regarding sacrifices top ten districts in Pakistan are as follows. He said that despite of poverty the sacrifices in Pakistan are of very high status. Sialkot, Faisalabad, Sargodha, Gujrat, Omer Kot, Okara, Narowal, Mirpur Khas, Toba Take Sing, Mandi Bahauddin, and Mirpur Azad Kashmir.
Huzoor (may Allah be his Helper) mentioned top ten Jama'at of Germany and then top ten regions of Germany. Ten local Emirates of Germany are also announced.

The Jumu'ah (Friday) prayer is one form of congregational worship in Islam. It takes place every Friday. Regular attendance at the Jumu'ah prayer is enjoined on the believer. According to a Saying of Muhammad(sa) this congregational prayer is twenty-five times more blessed than worship performed alone. (Bukhari)
“O ye who believe! When the call is made for Prayer on Friday, hasten to the remembrance of Allah, and leave off all business. That is best for you, if you only knew.” more
“… (He who) offers the Prayers and listens quitely when the Imam stands up for sermon, will have his sins forgiven between that Friday and the next” (Bukhari)
