Verses Cited in this Friday Sermon:
  • March 23 is a historical day for us as Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad Qadiani (as) laid the foundation of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Jama’at on this day. He said that I am the same Messiah and Mahdi foretold by the Holy Prophet (sa). He said that God wants to bring all righteous souls in this world towards true Tauheed or Unity of God and I have been sent for this reason. Then he said that I have been granted this status due to my love of the Holy Prophet (sa). He said that there is no Messenger and intercessor for humanity now except the Holy Prophet (sa). This is our belief.
  • Despite this, Muslims are carrying out many atrocities against Ahmadis, even against women and children. May Allah safeguard all Ahmadis and may Allah enable Muslims to accept the Messiah and Imam Mahdi who was sent for the revival of Islam.
  • The Promised Messiah (as) had great pain and anguish to call people to one true God. He once said: How unfortunate, indeed, is the man who does not even know that he has a God with power over all things! Our Paradise, indeed, is our God: our highest enjoyment is in God, for we have seen Him and found all beauty in Him. This treasure is worth having, even if at the cost of one's life; and this is a jewel worth procuring even if obtainable only by sacrificing one's entire being. O ye that are devoid, run to this spring, for it will quench your thirst. It is the spring of life that shall save you. What am I to do, and how should I impress this glad tiding upon your mind, with what drum should I go crying through the streets that this is your God, so that all should hear!
  • Huzoor (aba) said that the Promised Messiah (as) has repeatedly said that he attained this status due to his love for the Holy Prophet (sa). For example, the Promised Messiah (as) said: If I wasn’t from the Ummah or people of the Holy Prophet (sa) and did not follow him, then even if my good deeds had been equal to the mountains of this world, I would not have received this status of communion with Allah.
  • Huzoor (aba) also explained other instances of love of the Holy Prophet (sa) from the life of the Promised Messiah (as). Huzoor (aba) says that those who still raise this allegation against the Promised Messiah (as) are ignorant. Their matter is now with Allah.
  • Another important purpose of the Promised Messiah (as) was to instill in hearts the love and sympathy for all mankind. He also included this in the conditions of Bai’at. For example, he said: There are two parts of religion or two main goals .First is to recognize God and to love him; second purpose is to spend all your abilities to love and serve the creation of God.
  • Huzoor (aba) said that may Allah enable all Muslims to accept the Promised Messiah (as). The renaissance of Islam and the victory of Islam are decreed with the Jama’at of the Promised Messiah (as). The incidents which we are seeing these days (example: London attack) clearly show how the scholars of Islam have damaged the face of Islam. Now, it is our responsibility to defend Islam. Our Jama’at cannot be harmed from their opposition, no matter how severe it is.
  • The Promised Messiah (as) says: The third century from today will not have completed when all those who had been waiting for Jesus, both Muslims and Christians will despair of his coming and entertaining misgivings shall give up their belief and there will be only one Faith in the world and one preceptor. I came only to sow the seed. That seed has been sown by my hands. It will now grow and blossom forth and none dare retard its growth
  • May Allah enable us to become fruitful branches of this tree sown by the Promised Messiah (as). Ameen.
