Head of Ahmadiyya Muslim Community Delivers Friday Sermon Address in Giessen

Hazrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad narrates inspiring incidents from the lives of the Companions of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him)

On 18 October 2019, the World Head of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community, the Fifth Khalifa (Caliph), His Holiness, Hazrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad delivered his weekly Friday Sermon from the Hessenhalle in Giessen in Germany as his historic tour of Europe continues.

Over 5,000 people attended the Friday Sermon, where His Holiness narrated historic incidents pertaining to several prominent companions of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him) who partook in the Battle of Badr.

Whilst narrating an incident about one companion, Khubaib bin Adi (may Allah be pleased with him) His Holiness spoke generally about these blessed men of God.

Hazrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad said:

“These (companions) were those people who were of a great status and were such that attained a closeness to God.”

After narrating a number of incidents about Khubaib bin Adi (may Allah be pleased with him) including his martyrdom, His Holiness also spoke about two other companions, namely Amr bin Umayya and Jaabar bin Safar Ansari (may Allah be pleased with them).

Hazrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad also spoke about Abdullah bin Abdullah bin Ubayy bin Sulool (may Allah be pleased with him) who was the son of a staunch opponent of the Holy Prophet Muhamad (peace and blessings be upon him).

With regards to Abdullah bin Abdullah bin Ubayy bin Sulool (may Allah be pleased with him), Hazrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad said:

“Abdullah (may Allah be pleased with him) was the son of Abdullah bin Ubayy bin Sulool, the Chief of the Hypocrites. He was an immensely sincere, selfless and passionate companion of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him).”

His Holiness spoke about how forgiveness was always paramount in the eyes of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him).

Hazrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad said:

“The Holy Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) always considered forgiveness to be the suitable option. This was what Allah the Almighty had commanded him to do.”

His Holiness narrated various further examples of the sincerity and loyalty of the companions of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him).
