Hazrat Abu Bakr (ra). Saqib Mehmood.Peace be upon you beloved Huzoor.
Peace be upon you too.
A Brief Introduction of the Khulafa-e-Rashideen
in the word of the Promised Messiah (as).
The level of truthfulness that Hazrat Abu
Bakr (ra) displayed was unparalleled.
Hazrat Abu Bakr (ra) possessed
absolute knowledge of God Almighty,
he was extremely kind
and gentle by nature
and he lived his life with great
humbleness and meekness.
He was one who was very forgiving and was
an embodiment of compassion and mercy.
He was recognised by
the light on his forehead,
he had a deep relationship
with the Holy Prophet (saw).
The soul of Hazrat Abu Bakr (ra) was very
close to the soul of the Holy Prophet (saw).
The light that overshadowed his
master, leader and the beloved of God
was the very light that overshadowed himas well he was covered by the graceful
shade of the light of the Holy Prophet (saw)
and by his marvellous bounties.JazakAllah.Haris Ahmad Khokar. Hazrat Umar (ra).Peace be upon you beloved Huzoor.
Peace be upon you too.
In the name of Allah, the
Gracious, the Merciful.
Hazrat Umar (ra) would
always speak the truth.
The Promised Messiah(as) stated that,Hazrat Umar (ra) was one who
would always speak the truth
and was renowned for
having a sound judgement.
On many occasions his opinion was in
accordance to the teachings of the Holy Qur’an.
Thus he was a recipient of divine
revelation and a saintly individual.
Hazrat Umar (ra) was
blessed with divine favours,
as a result of which he became a
Muhaddath (one who is divinely inspired)
and therefore God, the Gracious,
bestowed him with divine communion.
Volumes have been written
in praise of his morals.
His attributes are more radiant than
the light exhibited by the full moon.
How great was his
character and his efforts.
He was an outstanding shield for the religion
brought by the Holy Prophet Muhammad (saw).
JazakAllah.Syed Zain Ahmad. Hazrat Usman (ra).Peace be upon you beloved Huzoor.
Peace be upon you too.
The wealth of Hazrat Usman (ra) were
dedicated to serve the cause of Islam.
The Holy Prophet (saw)’s mosque,Masjid Nabwi had initially been made
up of branches of a few date trees.
It was later properly constructed during
the reign of Hazrat Usman (ra)’s Khilafat,
due to the fact that Hazrat Usman (ra)
preferred constructed buildings.
I begin to think that Hazrat Suleiman (as)
and Hazrat Usman (ra)
are similar in traits and
qualities to quite an extent,
and this is why he (Hazrat Usman [ra])
preferred such things.
The reality is that such action has its
own separate stages (of implement).
Some people question the choice of
Hazrat Usman (ra) to accumulate wealth
especially when he was
known as ‘the Generous one’.
This is a false allegation as he was
not a businessman (seeking profit)
Allah the Almighty knows better why
he is known as ‘the Generous One’.
I do believe that such wealth that is
dedicated to serve the cause of Allah
does not belong to the person.With this intention, the person is not
looking to keep the wealth for himself.
It is in fact a wealth
belonging to Allah.
JazakAllah. Please remember
me in your prayers.
JazakAllah. Hazrat Ali (ra).
Sikander Ali.Peace be upon you.Hazrat Ali (ra) was a
righteous and chosen man.
Hazrat Ali (ra) was righteous, pureand among those people who were most
beloved in the sight of the Gracious God.
He was a quintessential man of his
nation and the leaders of his time.
He was a lion of the
All-Encompassing God,
a gallant person of the Gracious
God, generous and pure of heart.
He was so brave that even in
front of any army of enemies,
he would never leave his
place in the battlefield.
He lived a life in a destitute manner and had
reached the highest level of piety within man.
He was a man who would always be in the forefront
in distributing wealth, alleviating the grief
and sorrows of others and looking after
orphans, indigent people and his neighbours.
(Sirrul Khilafa, Ruhani
Khazain, Volume 8).
Is that the end? Are you going to take
this home with you? Take a seat. What would you like to say now? Yes,
what do you want to say? Stand up.Peace be upon you beloved Huzoor.My question is that if Allah the Almighty loves
everyone, then why do bad things happen?
What happens?Bad things.Allah the Almighty loves us and this is
why he has told us about the good things. In a way that, “I love you and
these are the good actions, “my love would increase for you if
you act upon these good things”. Therefore abstain from doing bad things. Look at all the good
things I supply you with. I provide you with food, water
to drink, clothes to wear. I have provided facilities
for you to study. I have provided you with so much more, in terms of
rewards, yet you are still ungrateful towards me, and do not pay heed to my advice, and
end up going towards the bad things. So then how can I love you in this case? The reason why the bad things have
been created is for Allah the Almighty to see if you love him as
much as he loves you. It is for him to see if you
reciprocate his love or not. Now, considering that
you love your parents. Or if your mother loves you, but you do not
listen to her and you are always complaining. She may tell you to study and you respond
by saying, “No! I want to play with the ipad.” She may tell you to do something else and you may
say, “No! I want to do this bad thing instead.” So remember that your mother
would also apprehend you alongside the consistent
love she shows towards you. There is no concept of physically
hitting children in this country but I see no harm in it if it
does happen so (by parents). So this is why Allah
the almighty says that, “Look! I have created such
wonderful things for you, “and I will love you even more if you
adhere to those good teachings of mine.” I will increase my rewards for you if you are
grateful towards that which you have been given. But if you do bad things, then you are
basically following the commandment of Satan and therefore I will also punish you. So you could receive a slap by God the way
you receive one from your mother at times. Alright? Take a seat. Stand up.My name is Adnan, and my question
is, what was your favorite sport as a child?
Favorite sport?Yes.I was not particularly a good sportsman
but I used to play cricket as a child. Later when I grew up, I used to
go and play badminton at the hall that was arranged by
Khuddam ul Ahmadiyya. But overall I have played
cricket mainly. OK? Stand up. Yes you the one
in the glasses, stand up.Peace be upon you, beloved
Huzoor
. Peace be upon you too.You work every day whilst
never getting any time for rest.
How do you manage to look so fresh?Who said that I do not get any
rest? I sleep as well as eat.You spend most of your time in
the office.
I also listen to the news.I do my work in the office and I
also manage to do other things. I also catch up with my sleep,
and I freshen up by doing so. In reality, it is all a
concept of the mind itself. If a person becomes lazy and
starts making excuses such as, “I have not had enough sleep, I want to sleep
more and be lazy”, then nothing can be done. You must tell yourself that this is the
amount of hours you need to sleep, and this will be enough for you to
become fresh and ready for hard work. Alright? And always have
a smile upon your face. You will always remain fresh as
long as you are smiling all the time. But if you always have a frown or are looking
as such, then you will never be fresh. Alright? Give the microphone to
the child sitting behind you.Peace be upon you, beloved
Huzoor.
Peace be upon you too.My question is in regards to the corona
virus that has spread these days.
Has this been unleashed by Allah the Almighty for
the world as a punishment or a trial for people?
We cannot say. Allah
knows better in this matter. Every illness is certainly a
trial set by Allah the Almighty and we should try our best to save ourselves
from a pandemic or an epidemic that has spread. We should try to save ourselves and
also seek forgiveness from Allah. All other various diseases are
afflictions of this day and age. Human beings have become
closer to each other. They travel from one place
to another by airplane. The corona virus spread at the airport through one
person, and then it spread throughout the city. They have transformed a cruise ship
that was set to arrive into a hospital. It is said that it also has reported
14-15 cases of this virus. They are arguing that if these
infected people are kept on board then the rest will also
contract this virus, therefore those people are
being ejected (from the ship). Hence, Allah knows better whether this is an
affliction that has been prescribed by him, then we pray that may Allah save us from this
and we should try to save ourselves from this. And he knows better if this is just
like a common disease that spreads. It is said that it should
all be fine by March. So, Allah knows the
reality of this better. However, we cannot claim that this is a
punishment that has been unleashed by God. I do not seem to know
anything about this, and if someone does know then
he is welcome to inform us. Alright? Yes, Stand up.Peace be upon you, beloved
Huzoor.
Peace be upon you too.My question is that how will we know if God
Almighty is pleased with us or angry with us?
If you do good deeds and stay
away from evil and immoral things, then it means that God Almighty has
kept you away from doing evil deeds, and so He must be pleased with you. If you commit evil deeds, if you fight, tell
lies, talk about immoral or vain things, keep in the company of evil people, watching vulgar films on the internet,
watch immoral programs on TV, God Almighty is not
pleased with these actions.Does God indicate this to us through any means?
He does not show indications to every person.
The best indication is for one
to abstain from evil deeds. God Almighty has commanded
to stay away from evil deeds and as a result He would grant His reward, if
not in this life then certainly in the next life. If He showed signs and grants you all the rewards
in this life, what will you get in the next life? That is why God Almighty
has kept these things hidden, that if a person does good deeds,
God Almighty credits your account. The actual life which is everlasting is the
next life, when you go there God Almighty will give you from that account and you
will get a seven-star place in paradise. Next, please stand up.Peace be upon you, beloved Huzoor.
My name is Zeeshan Ali Shareef
and my question is what should
we do to gain admission to Jamia?
Do you wish to study in Jamia?What do
we have to do to gain admission to Jamia?
For admission to Jamia? You ought to
be able to read the Holy Quran correctly, you should know the translation of the Salat and
should also increase your religious knowledge. Right? From this you ought
to be able to gain admission, and then they can teach
you the rest in Jamia. Okay? Please stand up. Please stand up Maulvi.Peace be upon you, my beloved
Huzoor.
Peace be upon you too.My question isWhat do you want to
become?
I want to become a lawyer.What?I want to become a lawyer.
You want to become a lawyer? Yes
Alright, so, I called you a Maulwi for no
reason? Alright, go on, ask your question.My question is, what do we as
Ahmadis believe about Dajjal?
What do we believe about Dajjal?Yes.We believe that anything that tells you
something deceitful or leads you towards deceit or attracts you or beautifies wrong things
for you to make you do them, that is Dajjal. There are some religious people who lie
and say that Jesus (as) is the son of God and that he has done such and such; they have attributed false things
towards Jesus (as) when in actual fact, Jesus(as) has never said
that I am the son of God. So, such people who utter these kinds of lies,
they utter Dajjali things (deceitful things). So, anything that leads you to wrong
things through wrongful means, anything that leads to wrong things by beautifying
those things for you is Dajjal, alright? For example, there is falsehood;
all satanic things are Dajjal. Dajjal does whatever Satan does. Yes, the one in the back, stand up, Amir. Is your name Amir?Peace be upon you,
beloved Huzoor.
Peace be upon you too.My question is, who has created Satan?Who has
created Satan?
Yes.Satan is not a physical body.When God Almighty created mankind,
He said that these are good things and you should act upon them; it will be my
angels who will tell you about good things. (He said that) these things are bad; it will be
Satan who will tell you about bad things, alright? Therefore, do not listen to Satan. Satan does not a physical body like you
rather, every evil or bad thought is Satan. This is why the Holy
Prophet (saw) has said that Satan runs within the body
of every man like blood does. Satan runs through your veins
along with your blood circulation. This means that Satan can lead you
towards an evil thought at any time. So, you should protect yourself from
evil things and do virtuous things so that you remain protected
from Satan, alright?Jazakallah.Satan is not
a physical body as such.
Every bad or evil though is Satan. Yes, stand up.Peace be upon you, beloved Huzoor.
My name is Shehriyar Bajwa.
Alright, what would you like to
ask Shehriyar Bajwa Sahib?What are the best deeds
that should be acted upon?
You should act upon all of the
instructions of the Holy Prophet (saw) and those would be good deeds, alright? So, you should always try to act
upon whatever he has said, alright?Jazakallah.Alright then, take a seat.Peace be upon you, beloved
Huzoor. My name is Atif.
My question is, if someone makes a
mistake, then seeks forgiveness for it
and then commits the same mistake
again, does God Almighty forgive him?
Yes, God Almighty states
that if you make a mistake and seek forgiveness
for it, I will forgive you. Then, if you unintentionally make
the same big mistake again; if you make small or minor mistake,
God Almighty will always forgive those. If God Almighty would hold people
accountable for their minor mistakes, then everyone would be held accountable as
no one is pure from making mistakes, alright? So, if you have unintentionally
made a mistake or if you have made the same mistake again by
accident, then God Almighty will forgive you. However, if you always seek forgiveness and then continue to make the
same mistake again and again, then there is a limit which God
Almighty has set; God will say that, “This person has simply become
habitual, he commits mistakes “and then thinks that I will
continue to forgive him.” Of course, one may continue
to seek forgiveness. God Almighty is One Who
forgives, He is Merciful and so He does show mercy to
those who seek His forgiveness. If one seeks His forgiveness, does Istighfar and
repents, God Almighty forgives such a person. And then a person should try to refrain from
the mistakes he’s already committed, alright? One should try to protect
himself from all kinds of sins. God Almighty forgives His
people; as He is forgiving, people should also try to develop
a relationship of love with God and should refrain from those
things that He has prohibited. God Almighty forgives
small and minor mistakes, He does not even hold you
accountable for such mistakes. It is the bigger mistake that
on is held accountable for. For example, God Almighty states about
Shirk (associating partners with Allah) that Shirk is a sin or mistake that I will
not forgive, I will punish one for that. If you believe in 2 or 3 Gods or consider
anything to be greater than God, this would be a big mistake or sin. God Almighty forgives minor mistake. But if you love someone, you
will always try to do good things so that the one whom you love would be
happy with you, like your mother and father. So, you should develop the same kind of
relationship with God Almighty as well and you should please God Almighty the way
you please your mother and father, alright?Yes.Jazakallah.Peace be upon you, beloved Huzoor.Peace be upon you too.
My name is Intisar Ahmad.
Alright, Mashallah, you are
not wearing you name tag.My question isWhere is your name tag?I do not have it.You do not have it?No.
Alright, have you come in without permission?
No, I registered myself before I came in.My question is, how did you
spend your time in Ghana?
What?How did you spend your time in Ghana?How did I spend my time in Ghana?Yes.I used to do whatever work was
necessary at school or at the farm. Then I’d study when I’d be free and I also used
to spend time with friends and chat with them. I also used to sit with children as well, alright?
There was some extra work that I used do as well. When I was in Ghana, we would have to
get construction work done for schools; or when I used to work on the farm, there were
various tasks that would need to be carried out. Sometimes I would be working
from morning till evening. I did not have a TV there at
that time, nor did I have a radio whereby I could listen to the news or
watch and listen unnecessary programs. There was no electricity. We had kerosene lamps, so what could
we do really? When it would be night time, we would go sleep early, alright? We weren’t like you who stay up till 12
at night wasting time and watching TV; or who would say that I want to
watch such and such programme when asked to go to bed by your
mother, alright?Yes, Jazakallah.Peace be upon you.Yes, Luqman
Mian, what would you like to ask?
My question is if you go
to a non-Ahmadi mosque,
why are we not allowed to
offer prayers behind them?
Why are you not allowed? The
fact of the matter is that before, Ahmadis used to offer
prayers behind non-Ahmadis. But then, non-Ahmadis started to oppose us and
they stopped others from offering Salat behind us. It was then that the Promised Messiah (as) said
that you too shall not offer Salat behind them, this is the first thing. Secondly, we believe in the Promised
Messiah (as) right? But non-Ahmadis do not. What do we believe the
Promised Messiah (as) to be? We believe that he is the Imam Mahdi, that he is the promised Messiah
and that God Almighty has sent him as a prophet to the world in true
subservience to the Holy Prophet (saw) who came to further propagate the his
Shariat (law) throughout the world, alright? This is why we do Tabligh to
others throughout the world, this is why have established missions, this is why we go to Africa, Australia,
America, Europe Asia and do Tabligh there. We try to convert
non-Muslims into Muslims. We do not turn them into Ahmadis,
we turn them into Muslims, alright? When God Almighty appointed the
Promised Messiah (as) as the Imam Mahdi and when other Maulwis or non-Ahmadis do not
accept the Imam appointed by God Almighty, are we so shameless that we
offer Salat behind the very people who deny the Imam
appointed by God Almighty? These Imams of different mosque have
been appointed by people, alright? But God Almighty has appointed the
Promised Messiah (as) as the Imam. How can we offer Salat behind someone who
denies the Imam appointed by God Almighty? So, this is why we don’t offer
Salat behind them, alright?Okay, I wanted to say that my mother
is not feeling well, please pray for her.
She is not feeling well? Okay,
May God Almighty bless her.Peace be upon you, beloved
Huzoor.
Peace be upon you.My question is, how should
we treat our parents?
You should listen to what they say and
this is what God Almighty has said as well. You should respect them,
honour them and listen to them. You should obey them when
they tell you to do good things. They don’t tell you to do
bad things, right?No, noThey tell you to do
good things, right?Yes.They tell you to offer Salat, correct?
Yes.
Then you should offer Salat.God Almighty will be happy and you
parents will also be happy, alright?Yes.Then you will also develop the habit of
strengthening your relationship with God Almighty. Your parents tell you to
eat on time, right?Yes.Then you should eat on time, you will
become more healthy, alright?Yes.Your parents tell you that
should study, correct?Yes.And that you should go and do your school
homework? So, this is a good thing. If you do your homework, you will
become intelligent and will excel. We need good, well-educated and
intelligent Waqf-e-Nau children.Yes.If your work to progress, you
will become a good child. So, this is how you should
treat your parents, alright? Indeed, it is mentioned din the Holy
Qur’an that if your parents ever scold you, then you are not to say
anything before them. You should remain silent and not say
a word expressive of disgust to them. Then, God Almighty will reward you for
that, alright?Yes.You will be rewarded.Now give the microphone to
the one beside you, Mikael.Peace be upon you, beloved
Huzoor.
Peace be upon you too.My question is that what is the most powerful
weapon in the world in your opinion,
the media, or a weapon
of mass destruction?
Media or a weapon of mass destruction;
the most powerful weapon is prayers. You pray to Allah, bow before him
and then ask His help and guidance and He can protect you from all weapons, whether
it is the media or weapons of mass destruction. In the worldly way, yes, an atom bomb or a
hydrogen bomb, they are very lethal weapons, they can destroy the whole world. The media, on the other hand, plays another
role, it deludes the minds of the people. And it can guide to the wrong side. So, everything has its own role, right? The
best this is, you try to seek Allah’s help, Allah’s guidance and pray to Him that Allah
Almighty saves you from all these bad things and all those weapons which the world
has made and created, right?JazakAllah.Stand up. What do you have to say?Peace be upon you, beloved Huzoor.
My name is Nabeel Mahmood Hayat
and my question is what does Allah
do to help you in your daily life?
He helps me in managing my time,
so that I can complete all my work and all my responsibilities. I try to do this and I hope to finish it,
because I have a pile of letters from people, a pile of letters from different
missions, there are so many files, I see to them and give notes for them. If I see [this] and think that I can
do this without Allah’s help, I can never [do it], because the
numbers are in the thousands. So this is how Allah helps
me in managing my time. When I see a letter, in one glance I
can understand the subject matter, which an ordinary person
cannot read as fast, right? This also depends on practice, this is how I
manage it, if you repeatedly do something, then Allah will help you
and apart from this, there are so many other things, [for
example] prayers also other matters. The basic thing is that Allah helps me in managing
my time and without His help I cannot do this. Yes, the boy in front, please stand up.Peace be upon you, beloved Huzoor. My
name is Akash Ahmad.
Your name is Akash?Yes.Mashallah, what do you
wish to ask Akash Ahmad?
Do you think World War 3 will take place?It is not only I who thinks this, but
everyone now thinks the same. Many analysts and politicians who once said
you were too optimistic, pessimistic rather, it will not take place
like such and such, whereas now they agree and say
there are chances of a world war. From the apparent events it
seems like it will take place, therefore you should seek the protection of God
Almighty and turn towards him more than before. As for what will [the world]
be like after the war, the people will then turn
towards God Almighty, you all ought to be prepared to propagate the
message to them [telling them] that God exists and listens [to prayers], and [tell them] how we
ought to remember God and how we can pray to him. The boy at the end, please stand up.Peace be upon you, my question
is that if one is not a Waqf-e-Nau,
can they still become a
Murabbi [Missionary]?
Indeed they can become a Murabbi. There are many students in Jamia who are not
Waqf-e-Nau, but are training to become Murabbi’s. Okay? What do you want to
become? What is your wish?It is to become a Murabbi.What
was that?
To become a Murabbi.You wish to become a Murabbi?
You can become a Murabbi. Give the microphone to the
healthy boy sitting next to you.Peace be upon you, beloved Huzoor?
Peace be upon you too. Do you play rugby?
Yes.You must be able to tackle others to the
ground?
Yes.It seems so, due to your build.My question is what is
your favourite country?
Favourite country? Pakistan, where
I was born and UK, where I live. Aside from this every place
has their own special rank. Qadian was the birth place of
the Promised Messiah (as), even still, there is Mecca, the
birthplace of the Holy Prophet (saw), there is Medina, where
the Holy Prophet (saw) spent the remainder of his
life and is buried there. So all of these cities have
their own distinct rank. But as for countries, every
person loves their own country, so [for me] Pakistan and now that I am living
here and am a resident of the UK, I like the UK.Peace be upon you, beloved Huzoor.
Peace be upon you too.
My question is how can
we save ourselves from evil?
How can we save ourselves from evil? Do
you know what is good and what is evil?Yes.When you commit a sin, are you aware
that this is something wrong?Yes.And when you perform a virtuous deed, are
you aware that this is a good thing?Yes.Then if you know this, you know that
you should not commit an evil deed and then you ought to pray for God
Almighty to safeguard you from that evil. Alright? Then gradually when
you pray to God Almighty and strive to stay away
from these evil deeds, then God Almighty will enable
you to perform good deeds and you will never be drawn towards evil
deeds. Alright?JazakAllah, beloved Huzoor.How can I remain attached
with the Jama’at?
Are you not attached to the Community yet?I am, but how can I remain firmly
attached to the Community?
Do you pray five times a day?Yes.You ought to pray for God Almighty to enable
you to become closer to the Community and try to become more involved in
Community activities.JazakAllah.JazakAllah.Alright? Yes, what
would you like to ask?
Peace be upon you, beloved Huzoor.My question is that why do
we recite the Surah al Fatihah
and the other tilawat [portion of the
Quran] aloud during the Friday prayers?
The Friday prayer is recited aloud, because we
follow the practice of the Holy Prophet (saw) who was taught in this
way by God Almighty. This is the first point. Why did you not ask the question that in normal days for the Zuhr prayer we offer 4
raka’at but on the Friday we only offer 2 raka’at? The reason for this is that the Friday Sermon
is also considered a part of the prayer, that is why one ought to remain silent
when listening to the Friday Sermon as that is part of the prayer. The Holy Prophet (saw) has stated that even
if you wish to stop someone from speaking, you ought to do it through a signal. Also, the Friday has a special significance,
therefore God Almighty has said that in order to mark the occasion we
ought to perform the recitation aloud. A Jewish man said to Hazrat Umar (ra) that
if the verse: (Arabic) was revealed to them, they would mark that day as Eid. Hazrat Umar (ra) replied, we celebrate
the Friday as that is also a day of Eid. Even on Eid [Eid-ul-Fitr or Eid-ul-Adha] we offer
2 rak’at and that recitation is audible as well. On the other days, people offer their
own nawafil [voluntary prayers]. God Almighty instructed the Holy Prophet (saw)
to offer the Friday prayers in this manner and also reduced 2
rak’at due to the sermon. Saqib Mahmood.
Peace be upon you, beloved Huzoor.
My question is that God Almighty
has said [in the Holy Quran]
that he will forgive all sins except
shirk [associating partners with God],
then those people who consider God to have a
son or worship idols, will they never be forgiven?
[continuing from previous question] The meaning is
that [God says] today religion has been perfected and the sharia, as well as other blessings
and your faith have been completed. That is why it is a celebration. As for [the next question]
God Almighty has said that He will not forgive shirk
[associating partners with God], meaning that there will be a
grave punishment for this, but at the same time the Holy Prophet (saw)
has said God Almighty informed him that there will come a time when
Hell will be completely empty. When everyone will have endured
their rightful punishment, God Almighty will take everyone out
of hell and they will enter paradise. Therefore, it means that God Almighty will
certainly punish those who commit shirk, but ultimately He is Ar-Rahman [the Gracious] he
can manifest His powers of Rahmaniyya and forgive, He is Ghaffar, the One Who forgives,
so He can forgive anyone He pleases. Nonetheless, God Almighty
has said in the Holy Quran that Shirk is a sin that will
certainly be punished. As for other sins, God can overlook
them or give a lesser punishment or grant them a lesser rank in paradise. However, those who commit
shirk will certainly be punished. Once they have served their jail time in the
prison of hell, God will then forgive them.My grandfather is unwell, please pray
for him.
May Allah grant His blessings.May God protect you. Peace be upon you.
