Friday Sermon on 27 March 1914

“though we believe in the commandments of God, we will act upon them according to our own intellect and fundamentals, and there is no need for any heavenly guidance anymore”, however, they were completely wrong.

During his Friday Sermon on 1 May 1914, while advising the Jamaat members, Huzoorra said:

“It is your duty to obey and submit to Allah the Almighty, to fulfil the pledge made to Him of giving precedence to faith over the world, and to follow the Islamic commandments. […] You are required to fulfil your promises made to Allah so that He showers upon you His blessings.” (Ibid, p. 85)

During his Friday Sermon on 14 August 1914 – commenting on verses 68 to 72 of Surah al-Baqarah, where it is mentioned that the People of Mosesas asked too many questions in regards to Allah’s commandments – Huzoorra said:

“The Muslims have been taught here that they would also be given divine commandments, so they should not ask too many questions, for instance, ‘why should we follow this, what is the wisdom behind this, what are the conditions, and why is it like this and why not in such and such manner.’ […] One should always act on the commandments of the sharia and the Prophetsa.” (Ibid, p. 156)

During his Friday Sermon on 6 November 1914, Huzoorra spoke about the deteriorating situation of contemporary Muslims.

Huzoorra said that as long as the Muslims continued to act upon the true teachings of Islam, Allah had granted them great success. However, when they began to divert from these teachings, they were deprived of the help and succour of God Almighty.

Huzoorra continued by saying that in this era, the progress of Islam was only possible through Ahmadiyyat, and therefore, future success and progress had been decreed for the followers of the Promised Messiahas. Thus, members of the Jamaat needed to create within themselves a spiritual revolution in order to become the recipients of Allah’s blessings and mercy. (Ibid, pp. 207-215)

“In such a peaceful age when no one can harm anyone, if someone’s temperament inclines towards hypocrisy, they are a very ill-natured person. If someone does munafiqat now, they are a thousand times worse in their hypocrisy than at the time of the Holy Prophetsa.” (Khutbat-e-Mahmud, 25 September 1914, p. 183)

True belief in Islam means to follow and adopt its teachings with complete submission in all spheres of life: Hazrat Musleh-e-Maud’s advice to the Jamaat


During his Friday Sermon on 15 January 1915, Huzoorra emphasised the need to act upon the Islamic teachings in their true essence. Huzoorra said that it was completely wrong for one to obey the Islamic commandments according to their own interpretations, thoughts and wishes: 

“One must realise that if they are obeying one aspect of a certain [Islamic] commandment and opposing the other, then it cannot be termed as complete obedience and submission, but rather, in reality, their nafs is deceiving them. […] The proof of one’s submission is that they show obedience even in those matters which are against their own habits, points of view, and likings. […] A believer always strives to attain the pleasure of God Almighty by acting on each of His commandments, whether they align with their own point of view or not.” (Ibid, pp. 266-268).

1916

During his Friday Sermon on 20 October 1916, Huzoorra said that the Quranic teachings were the perfect code of conduct for mankind. Contemporary Muslims had forsaken the pathway taught by the Holy Quran, and this was the reason behind their regression. Islam was a religion that presented a perfect way of life and helped establish a civilised society. Thus, Islam and the establishment of a civilised society have a deep connection. (Khutbat-e-Mahmud, Vol. 5, pp. 300-302).

Khutbat-e-Mahmud, Vol. 6, pp. 393-394

During his Friday Sermon on 13 February 1920, Huzoorra said:

“The name of the Promised Messiahas had spread all over the world within a few years, and there is no part where his name has not yet reached. Look at that town [of Qadian] and then ponder over the fame it has attained through the Promised Messiahas. […] Now, by the sheer grace of God Almighty, there are clear indications of the propagation of Islam [all over the world]. Our missionary [Hazrat Mufti Muhammad Sadiqra] would have reached America by now, insha-Allah. Similarly, there is progress in Africa and Ceylon [now Sri Lanka], and propagation [of Islam] is going on in Germany. […] Islam is progressing in Russia as well since the seed has been sown there and the people are seeking missionaries from us. […]

“The days are approaching for the fulfilment of the prophecy that the sun shall rise from the West:

[لَا‭ ‬تَقُوْمُ‭ ‬السَّاعَةُ‭ ‬حَتَّى‭ ‬تَطْلُعَ‭ ‬الشَّمْسُ‭ ‬مِنْ‭ ‬مَغْرِبِهَا]

“[The Hour will not be established till the sun rises from the West. (Sahih al-Bukhari, Kitab al-Tafsir, Hadith 4635)].”

1922

During his Friday Sermon on 8 September 1922, while advising the Jamaat to propagate Islam, Huzoorra said that, Ahmadis had a great objective in front of them:

“We have a huge task in front of us; we have the responsibility to make efforts [for the propagation of Islam] in England, India, America, France, Germany, Russia, Kabul, Iran, and China. In fact, we must make efforts in the whole world. […]

“[The materialistic people] make efforts to attain peace in this life alone. However, we strive to attain peace in this world and the Hereafter as well. […] Therefore, every member of the Jamaat must make efforts with full passion and zeal.” (Khutbat-e-Mahmud, Vol. 7, pp. 359-360)

During his Friday Sermon on 24 November 1922, while advising the Jamaat to offer sacrifices for the propagation of Islam, Huzoorra said that God Almighty had given them the task to propagate the message of Islam all over the world:

“It is one of the great aims and objectives of Islam, as it is stated:

كُنۡتُمۡ‭ ‬خَیْرَ‭ ‬اُمَّۃٍ‭ ‬اُخۡرِجَتۡ‭ ‬لِلنَّاسِ‭ ‬تَاۡمُرُوۡنَ‭ ‬بِالۡمَعۡرُوۡفِ‭ ‬وَتَنۡہَوۡنَ‭ ‬عَنِ‭ ‬الۡمُنۡكَرِ

“‘You are the best people raised for the good of mankind; you enjoin what is good and forbid evil.’ [Surah Aal-e-Imran, Ch.3: V.111]

“Therefore, the purpose behind the establishment of the Ummat-e-Islamiyyah is to unite mankind on one hand. [Worldly] people establish various societies to unite people on one platform. However, they are ‘unaware’ of the person who had proclaimed that the sole purpose behind his advent was to unite the world, and for this objective, established a Jamaat; that person is the Holy Prophet Muhammadsa.

“Thus, this duty is amongst the fundamentals of Islam and therefore, it is our responsibility. We are required to pursue this objective through various means, which need huge expenses and the establishment of missions at various places.” (Ibid, p. 416)

Huzoorra continued by saying Ahmadis were required to offer financial sacrifices and devote themselves to tabligh in different parts of the world.

While mentioning America, Huzoorra said that, Hazrat Mufti Muhammad Sadiq Sahibra was working day and night to propagate the message of Islam Ahmadiyyat. However, there was a dire need to send more missionaries to achieve the desired results.

Huzoorra continued:

“We can never abandon tabligh [preaching the message of Islam] – it is the duty of every Ahmadi.” (Ibid, p. 418)

1927

During his Friday Sermon on 27 May 1927, Huzoorra said:

“Our desire and endeavours are to bring the whole world within the fold of Islam. […] I have propagated the message of Islam to various countries outside of India. For instance, currently, there are thousands of Muslims in West Africa who have accepted Islam through the efforts of the missionaries I sent there. Similarly, there are many who have proclaimed the kalima [Islamic creed] in Europe and America as well.” (Khutbat-e-Mahmud, Vol. 11, pp. 123-125)

1933

During his Friday Sermon on 10 November 1933, Huzoorra said:

“[In the early days of Ahmadiyyat] there was a time when the number of Ahmadis around the world was even less than those present here for Jumuah prayer today. However, the Jamaat was still progressing and the people were inclining towards the Jamaat, so much so that the fame of Ahmadiyyat even reached Europe and America.” (Khutbat-e-Mahmud, Vol. 14, p. 273)

Huzoorra added that this was all due to the grace and succour of Allah the Almighty.
_____________________________________________________________________________________________ 1934

During his Friday Sermon on 9 March 1934, while mentioning the Ahrar’s opposition, Huzoorra said, members of the Jamaat were required to utilise the means of tabligh to overpower the Ahrar’s opposition since this was the method which would enable the Jamaat to become victorious the world over. Huzoorra said:

“Therefore, go and preach to them [the message of Ahmadiyyat] and explain to them the fresh signs of God Almighty which are being manifested in the world.” (Khutbat-e-Mahmud, Vol. 15, pp. 79-80)

During his Friday Sermon on 23 November 1934, Huzoorra said:

“A nation requires to spread in times of trouble. In the Holy Quran, Allah the Almighty tells Muslims that if there was passion [from the opponents] against the Muslims in Mecca, then why did they not go out and spread to other countries? If they went out, Allah the Almighty would open many avenues for their progress. […]

“How do we know where our Medinitelife [referring to the prosperity of Muslims after migrating to Medina] begins? Qadian is indeed our religious centre, but I don’t know where our centre of glory and power is. It could be in any other city in India, and it could be in China, Japan, the Philippines, Sumatra, Java, Russia, the United States, or any other country in the world. So when we find out that people are seeking to humiliate the Jamaat for no reason, they want to crush us, then it becomes our duty to go out and find out where our Medinitelife begins.” (Ibid, pp. 433-434)
_____________________________________________________________________________________________
1935

During his Friday Sermon on 15 March 1935, Huzoorra quoted the following verse of the Holy Quran:

فَاِذَا‭ ‬قُضِیَتِ‭ ‬الصَّلٰوۃُ‭ ‬فَانۡتَشِرُوۡا‭ ‬فِى‭ ‬الۡاَرۡضِ‭ ‬وَابۡتَغُوۡا‭ ‬مِنۡ‭ ‬فَضۡلِ‭ ‬اللّٰہِ‭ ‬

“And when the Prayer is finished, then disperse in the land and seek of Allah’s grace.” (Surah al-Jumuah, Ch.62: V.11)

Commenting on this verse, Huzoorra said:

“There is a ‘permission’ from Allah the Almighty to disperse after the Jumuah prayer. However, it was to turn into a ‘commandment’ during the seventh millennium when the Promised Messiah would come, in other words, فَانۡتَشِرُوۡا‭ ‬فِى‭ ‬الۡاَرۡضِ would mean to disperse in the land for tabligh [preaching]. […]

“During the time of the Holy Prophetsa, God Almighty had revealed that Medina was the most suitable place for the propagation of Islam. […] In this era, God Almighty wants us to disperse to all countries of the world and to search for a country that could serve Ahmadiyyat as ‘Medina’. For this purpose, when we will disperse to various countries of the world, we will be sowing the seed of Ahmadiyyat in all countries, and thus, the Will of God Almighty to spread Ahmadiyyat in all countries of the world will be fulfilled. […]

“We will go to Japan and China and convey to them the message of Ahmadiyyat. However, some of them may accept the message and others may reject it. […] Similarly, we will go to Russia, Afghanistan, Iran, Arabia, the Philippines Islands, Sumatra, Java, Nepal, Jordan, and America, and convey to them the message of Ahmadiyyat. We will also go to the European states for the tabligh of Ahmadiyyat. […]

“Therefore – since this is the age of tabligh – thus, God Almighty has not specifically named any country to be the most suitable for the propagation of Ahmadiyyat, rather, in the words وَابۡتَغُوۡا‭ ‬مِنۡ‭ ‬فَضۡلِ‭ ‬اللّٰہِ [And seek of Allah’s grace], Allah the Almighty has declared it an obligation for us to seek that ‘grace’.” (Khutbat-e-Mahmud, Vol. 16, pp. 200-205)

During his Friday Sermon on 28 June 1935, Huzoorra said:

“Whether the opponents consider our Jamaat to be ‘worthless’ or declare that ‘this community is small in numbers’, it is certain that one day they will have to acknowledge the significance of this Jamaat. […]

“Jamaat-e-Ahmadiyya is present in various countries, such as India, Ceylon [now Sri Lanka], the Straits Settlements, Afghanistan, Iran, Iraq, Arabia, Palestine, Syria, Egypt, China, Sumatra, Java, Austria, Africa, Kenya, Uganda, Natal, Gold Coast [now Ghana], Sierra Leone, Nigeria, etc.

“Our Jamaat is also present in that part of Africa which was anciently called German Africa, then in Mauritius, the United States of America […] Belgium, England […] and Russia as well. There is no continent of the world where our Jamaat is not established. This is the factor that indicates a community’s strength in the world.” (Ibid, p. 370)

Munafiqeen: How to identify and deal with hypocrisy – Part II


Khutbat-e-Mahmud, 16 October 1936, pp. 681

“If you wish to stand in support of the munafiqeen and to protect them, then I ask you whether you would be willing to keep a rat that had died of plague in your house, then I will understand that you are honest.”

“The strength of communities established by God is not in their numbers, their strength is in their faith and sincerity.” (Khutbat-e-Mahmud, 16 October 1936, p. 668)

 

Munafiqeen separating themselves can in no way be a loss for the Jamaat. Rather, it is a means of limitless progress.” (Khutbat-e-Mahmud, 16 October 1936, p. 685)

“Use your intellect, then pray and turn to God Almighty, then work with courage and boldness, do not be cowardly and fearful, and do not think that losing ten or twenty thousand people will cause you loss. Even if a million people leave, ten million will join us and they will come being sincere.” (Ibid, p. 682)

True belief in Islam means to follow and adopt its teachings with complete submission in all spheres of life: Hazrat Musleh-e-Maud’s advice to the Jamaat

On 28 December 1937, during his address at the Jalsa Salana Qadian, Huzoorra said that a true belief in Islam means adopting the Islamic way of life “in one’s beliefs, actions, acts of worship, in one’s civilisation and culture, economics, politics, in the settlement of disputes that might arise between him and others, in short, in the whole field of life. Unless one does all these things, one cannot truly be called a Muslim.” (Real Revolution [Inqilab-e-Haqiqi], p. 163)

Munafiqeen: How to identify and deal with hypocrisy – Part I 

“Hypocrites are so foolish that, on the one hand, in their sittings, they talk about what they perceive to be evils in the Jamaat and the Nizam, but when a believer meets with them and tells them to convey this to the Khalifatul Masih they say they don’t want to needlessly escalate things.

“On one hand they spread sedition and discord, on the other, they express they hate discord, although the way they criticise is sedition itself. But when they are asked why they don’t mention their complaints to the Khalifatul Masih, they pretend to be great reformers and say that ‘we don’t want to start any discord, if we complain, then what will he say?’” (Khutbat-e-Mahmud, 5 August1938, p. 491)

If these munafiqeen were sincere in saying they wanted to promote peace, they would share their objections with the Khalifa. But they spread discord by going behind his back. This is munafiqat

Hazrat Musleh-e-Maudra said:

“If their objective was only reformation, they should have brought those responsible in the Nizam to notice about the issue, rather than having their separate sittings and saying it there”. (Khutbat-e-Mahmud, 5 August 1938, p. 505)

“They have faith in their hearts, but along with it is a disease.” (Khutbat-e-Mahmud, 5 August 1938, p. 499)

“Since a munafiq is no longer attached to the movement through a connection of love, when they see these kinds of weaknesses, they say ‘now we see that they also have these wrongs and faults’. Since, now, a feeling of estrangement has developed in him, they begin referring to their own Jamaat in the third person and say that ‘they’ have these faults.” (Khutbat-e-Mahmud, 5 August 1938, pp. 498-499)

munafiq is quiet when the Jamaat succeeds, but is ecstatic to say ‘I told you so’ when there is a setback, from which it is clear that their objective is to disgrace the Jamaat. (Ibid, p. 502)
_____________________________________________________________________________________________
1942

During his Friday Sermon on 27 November 1942, while outlining the objectives of the Tahrik-e-Jadid scheme, Huzoorra said:

“We need men. We need funds. We need determination and perseverance and we need prayers that will shake the throne of God Almighty; the combination of all these is called Tahrik-e-Jadid.

Tahrik-e-Jadid has been initiated so we can accumulate such funds which could help us in easily and conveniently conveying the name of God Almighty to the corners of the world.

Tahrik-e-Jadid has been initiated for the purpose of having people who dedicate themselves to the propagation of the religion of God and spend their lives engaged in this task. […] We will certainly need to send some people to Europe, America and Japan and they will have to devote their whole lives to this cause. […]

“Members of the Jamaat are proud that Sahibzada Abdul Latif Sahibra Shaheed sacrificed his life for the Jamaat. However, we do not need only a single Abdul Latif to revive the Jamaat; instead, hundreds of Abdul Latifs are needed who should go out to different countries and sacrifice their lives for Islam and Ahmadiyyat. Unless [people like] Abdul Latif are born in every country and every region, the grandeur and majesty of Ahmadiyyat cannot be established until that time.” (Khutbat-e-Mahmud, Vol. 23, pp. 522-525)

https://www.alhakam.org/true-belief-islam-submission-ahmadiyya-obedience/

During his speech on 14 June 1948, Huzoorra said:

“If we are true Muslims, then we should glance back 1,300 years ago. If we try to follow the footsteps of other secular nations and ponder over their ways of progress, and neglect the commandments of Allah the Almighty or guidance granted by the Holy Prophetsa, then certainly we can never be successful in our objective; because God Almighty has made such promises with the Muslims which have not been made to the other nations. […]

“We must create such an environment that distinguishes us from the other nations, and the only way to achieve this is to act upon the teaching which was brought by our master and leader, Muhammadsa, the Holy Messenger of Allah. We should follow the path which he wanted us to follow, and avoid those matters which are against [the teaching of] Islam. If we do not [follow Islam], and try to become good followers of the West by only relying on worldly measures […] then we must remember that Allah the Almighty has not promised that He will help the good followers of the West; instead, the Holy Quran states:

‭ ‬قُلۡ‭ ‬اِنۡ‭ ‬كُنۡتُمۡ‭ ‬تُحِبُّوۡنَ‭ ‬اللّٰهَ‭ ‬فَاتَّبِعُوۡنِيۡ‭ ‬يُحۡبِبۡكُمُ‭ ‬اللّٰهُ

[“Say, ‘If you love Allah, follow me: [then] will Allah love you.’” (Surah Aal-e-Imran, Ch.3: V.32)]

“Meaning that if you want God to love you, then you should follow the footsteps of Muhammadsa, the Holy Messenger of Allah. Divine support and help can only come when the Muslims try to follow the footsteps of Muhammadsa, the Holy Messenger of Allah.” (Musalmanan-e-Balochistan se aik Eham Khitaab, Anwar-ul-Ulum, Vol. 19, pp. 579-581)

Munafiqeen: How to identify and deal with hypocrisy – Part I 


Khutbat-e-Mahmud, 3 June 1949, p. 140

“The greatest sign of a person’s munafiqatis that they won’t complain to the person they have a complaint against, instead, they’ll spread ill-thinking against them among people. Seeing this sign, if someone cannot recognise a munafiq, there is no one more foolish than them. Recognising a munafiq is easier than recognising anything else.”

Hazrat Musleh-e-Maudra said it was not an expression of mercy to leave weeds in a garden, they would suffocate the plants that were meant to flourish. (Khutbat-e-Mahmud, 18 November 1949, p. 390)
_____________________________________________________________________________________________
1952

During his Friday Sermon on 18 January 1952, while shedding light on the objectives of Tahrik-e-Jadid, Huzoorra said:

“The work of Tahrik-e-Jadid is neither limited to a few years, nor the duty of a few people only, but rather this scheme has been initiated to achieve the victory of Islam over all other religions – which is the core objective behind the establishment of Ahmadiyyat. […]

“During the Latter-Days, Islam was to pass through difficult times [according to the prophecies of the Holy Prophetsa], which would have ‘damaged’ its greatness and glory, and the opponents would have the opportunity to raise allegations against Islam and to disrespect it. After that, Islam was destined to regain its glory and reach such a position that would make the opponents disappointed.

“And the responsibility [to help Islam regain its glory and greatness] lies on everyone who claims to be a Muslim and Ahmadi. Therefore, in regards to the task of achieving Islam’s victory over the entire world and the spread of Ahmadiyyat, a Muslim and Ahmadi can never say that ‘it is someone else’s duty, not mine’. This is the duty of every Ahmadi and it will continue in every era till the Day of Judgement. […]

“The only method to achieve the victory of Islam over all other religions is to perform tabligh. […] This is the Jihad which is incumbent upon the Muslims forever. […] The Jihad which was presented by the Promised Messiahas and which is being followed by us [in this era] can never end. […] Jihad means to reform oneself and to carry out tabligh for converting people to Islam. […]

“You should tell every Ahmadi that those who participate in [the sacrifices under the scheme of] Tahrik-e-Jadid, in fact, fulfil the purpose behind the establishment of Ahmadiyyat. […] We will have to offer sacrifices for the sake of Islam since our God has entrusted to us the responsibility [to propagate Islam to all corners of the world].” (Khutbat-e-Mahmud, Vol. 33, pp. 12-16)

During his Friday Sermon on 1 February 1952, Huzoorra mentioned some of the false propaganda initiated by the opponents of the Jamaat and explained how they were trying their utmost to harm the Jamaat. After narrating the whole situation in detail, towards the end of his sermon, Huzoorra said:

“Whatever the Promised Messiahas did, was solely for the sake of God Almighty and he had sincere intentions, otherwise, what is the reason that all the maulvis are exerting all of their efforts yet they did not succeed in harming Ahmadiyyat in any way? […] It is clear that God Almighty is helping this Jamaat. When the opponents realise that they cannot overcome Ahmadiyyat through tabligh, they begin their inciteful campaigns, but that also goes in vain.

“The opponent’s inciteful campaigns could physically harm us temporarily, however, the reality is that this community will continue to flourish. […] Even if all the satanic powers of the world unite together to stop the progress of this community [Ahmadiyyat], the prophecies regarding its propagation in the world will surely be fulfilled, insha-Allah ta’ala, with His Grace and Mercy.” (Al Fazl, 13 February 1952, p. 5)

1956

During his Friday Sermon on 20 January 1956, Huzoorra said:

“When America presents its heart and soul to the Holy Prophet Muhammadsa, then will we consider that America has accepted Islam. […] The day America constructs hundreds of thousands of mosques; the day when hundreds of thousands call the adhan from the minarets; the day when imams numbering hundreds of thousands lead the five daily prayers in mosques, will be the day when we consider that America has progressed.”

Huzoorra further said:

“Therefore, I advise the youth that these are the days for you to make efforts. Europe and America are seeking missionaries for the propagation of Islam. Today, America alone is seeking 200 missionaries, but tomorrow they will not seek 200, rather they will require 2,000 missionaries. The day after, they will not ask for 2,000, but they will ask for 200,000 missionaries. The day after that, they will not ask for 200,000 missionaries; rather they will ask for 20 million missionaries and the preparation of 20 million missionaries will require 200 years.” (Khutbat-e-Mahmud, Vol. 37, pp. 24-28)
