    Lightbulb 27 May: Remembering Start of Ahmadiyya Khilafat for Promised Renaissance of Faith

    Peace be on you.
    WE ARE PASSING THROUGH FOURTH ERA…..
    We are passing through the Fourth Era – among the eras to come after Holy Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him). He (p.b.u.h.) prophesied:


    === Prophethood will remain among you as long as Allah wills, then Allah, the Exalted will take it away.
    === Then Khilafat on the precept of Prophethood will commence as long as Allah wills, then Allah, the Exalted will take away this.
    === Then corrupt /erosive monarchy would be established, it will be there as long as Allah wills. Then Allah, the Exalted will take it away.
    ===Then despotic kingship would emerge. It will stay as long as Allah wills. Then Allah, the Exalted will take it away.
    === Then (again), Khilafat on the precept of Prophethood shall be established. Then (after saying this) he ( the Holy Prophet s.a.w.) became quiet.
    [Reference: Narrated by Companion Huziafah (r.a): Musnad Ahmad, Mishkaat]


    DESCRIPTION…..
    In above, the Holy Prophet (p.b.u.h.) mentions his Prophethood.
    ……Then he prophecied about the establishment of Rightly-Guided-Khilafat which would move forward on the lines of Prophethood. First four righteous Khulafa were not anywhere near being wordly kings. Their aim was to follow Holy Prophet (p.b.u.h.) to seek pleasure of Allah.
    …….Then eras of kingships came which brought various hardness for people.
    ……..The above eras came into existence, one after one, exactly as prophesied by the Holy Prophet (p.b.u.h.). The era mentioned in the end of prophecy came true also, according to Ahmadiyya Muslims. Holy Prophet (p.b.u.h.) had foretold the Signs of that era also. All Signs have been fulfilled.



    TRUE SIGNS ARE STRONGLY INTER-LINKED…..
    There is a way to distinguish between the Prophesied Real Signs and the Fabrications which were added by people after him (p.b.u.h.).

    i- The Real Signs, foretold by the Holy Prophet (s.a.w.), are mentioned in strong inter linked manner.
    ii- The True Signs are either related with events which need hundreds of years to get shape and they cannot be imitated.
    iii- These True Signs just could not have occurred before their appointed time.
    iv- These True Signs collectively present a picture.


    According to Real Signs of latter days era, foretold by Holy Prophet (p.b.u.h.), various conditions of the age were going to be:

    Religious conditions
    The majority of people being associated with Christianity. Weakness in faith and prestige in Muslims. Absence of understanding of religion alongwith absence of freedom of religion in Arab Lands.


    Moral conditions
    Worldwide spread of obscenity, fornication, drinking and gambling. Loss of Pure-Self and trust. Misconduct with parents but respect for friends.


    Knowledge
    Increase in worldly knowledge, decrease in understanding divine knowledge.


    Traditions
    Change in way of saying greetings to each other. Honour based on money. Praise for holder of worldly excellence but had no faith in heart. Believers belittled. Various languages. Wearing dresses which did not cover body properly. Abuse of women on the name of freedom. Men wearing make-ups and women using men’s dresses.


    Health
    Plague (microscopic) diseases. Nose-related disease [influenza].


    Gender ratio
    Less men than women [due to wars].


    New vehicles
    New means of travel. [new vehicles].


    Wealth
    Plenty of Gold. Liking of Silver. Interest based economy. Wealthiness of Anti-God and Deceiver powers and their influence.


    Politics
    Decline of Muslim governments. Rise of powers who use fire. Laborer power. Increase in government officials. Abandonment of religious penal laws.


    Earth
    Increase in Earthquakes.


    Astronomy
    Eclipses of sun and moon in one month of Ramadan on specific dates while the Promised Refromer Claimant was present. [this sign happened twice, in 1894 in the East and in 1895 in the West] [Holy Quran ch 75: v 9,10 and also Mathew ch 23: v3]


    These Prophesied Signs has been fulfilled.

    [ References: Please see number 2 and number 3 at the end ]



    COMING BACK TO ORIGINAL TOPIC…..HOLY PROPHET (p.b.u.h.) TOLD LAST ERA WITH KHILAFAT ON THE PRECEPT OF PROPHETHOOD…..
    This era is associated with the verse 4 of Chapter 62 of Holy Quran: “And (among) others from among them who have not yet joined them. He is the Mighty, the Wise.”

    When asked by Companions about it, Holy Prophet (p.b.u.h.) placed his hand on the shoulder of Companion Salman Farsi (r.a) and said: Even if faith were near the Pleiades, a man from among these would surely find it. [ref: Bukhari, Muslim]….


    =It indicated that the Promised Person was to appear in non Arabs.
    =The verse shows that the Promised Person was to be lost in love with Holy Prophet (p.b.u.h.) such that his Promised Coming is deemed as coming of Holy Prophet (p.b.u.h.).
    =Holy Prophet (p.b.u.h.) called him ‘nabeeullah’ i.e. Prophet of Allah; four times in one saying; in another saying Holy Prophet (p.b.u.h.) said about Promised Person that there is no ‘nabi’ (Prophet) between me and him…..He (p.b.u.h.) called him (Promised) Messiah and Mahdi.



    ON THE PRECEPT OF PROPHETHOOD....PURPOSE OF AHAMDIYYA KHILAFAT……REQUIREMENTS…..DIVINE SUPPORT

    === The Promised Messiah appeared in India. Signs prior to him, and during his life time, and after him continued to be fulfilled.
    === By virtue of the Promised Messiah (a.s.) being the Khatam ul Khulafa, he attained to the very highest peak of that Khilafat which was the highest standard of Khilafat on the precept of Prophethood.
    === He made the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community. According to news given by Allah, he prepared the Community about his passing away. He asked the Community not to loose heart and gave the good news about continuation of Khilafat after him.
    === The system of Khilafat that began with the Promised Messiah (a.s.) is to serve the purpose of the Holy Prophet (p.b.u.h.) and is on the precept of Prophethood. This is continuation of Rightly Guided Khilafat.
    ===This Khilafat serves to ensure that commandments of Holy Quran are observed according to the way of Holy Prophet (p.b.u.h.), rights of Allah and rights of Creation are paid, good deeds are done, evil is avoided, progress in worship of Allah is seeked.
    === Divine support saves the Community. Persecution to the Community happens but Allah grants progress.
    === Believers obey commandment ‘We hear and we obey’ (from 24:52); they follow Holy Quran; Holy Prophet (p.b.u.h.); they accepted Promised Messiah (a.s.); they should follow directions of his Khilafat; they are expected to solve their disputes through the system of Khilafat; those who serve that system should be mindful of their duties.
    ==== Believers should offer Salaat with conditions; make personal conditions according to pleasure of Allah; avoid making partners with Allah, offer financial sacrifices.
    ==== According to Prophecies of Holy Quran and Holy Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be on him), now the progress of real and true teachings of Islam is destined through ardent devotee of Holy Prophet (p.b.u.h.) called Promised Messiah and his Khilafat (on the precept of Prophethood). Those who believe in it are like beads of necklace.


    The Promised Messiah said for those who will remain attached to Khilafat, get blessings and pleasure of Allah:

    Quotes

    And you, too, should partake of the Holy Spirit by compassion and by purifying your souls. Because without the Holy Spirit true Taqwa cannot be attained. And, totally shedding all base desires of the self, choose for the sake of winning the pleasure of God that path compared to which no path can be narrower and straighter. Don’t fall in love with the pleasures of the world, for they take you away from God. Choose a life of austerity for the sake of God. The pain which pleases God is better than the pleasure which makes Him angry. And the defeat which pleases God is better than the victory which invites the wrath of Allah. Renounce the love which brings you nearer to the wrath of Allah. If by purifying your hearts you come to Him, He will help you whichever path you tread and no enemy shall ever be able to harm you. You can never ever win the pleasure of Allah unless you, relinquishing your desires, abandoning your pleasures, sacrificing your honour, disowning your wealth, discarding your life, bear such hardships in His way as make you suffer the pangs of death. But once you suffer such hardship, you will sit in the lap of God like a beloved child. And you will be made heirs of the truthful who have preceded you. The door of every blessing will be opened to you. But there are few who belong to this category.

    …….

    God addressed me and said that Taqwa is a tree that should be planted in the heart. The very water which nourishes Taqwa irrigates the whole garden. Taqwa is a root without which everything is meaningless; and if it remains intact then nothing is lost. What benefit is there for a man in indulging himself in the useless activity of claiming with his tongue that he seeks God while he has no sure footing with his Lord. Look, I say to you truly and sincerely that ruined is he whose faith is tainted by even a hint of worldliness. Hell is very close to that soul all of whose intentions are not for God—rather some of them are for God and others are for the world. Thus if you have an iota of worldly adulteration in your intentions, all your worship is in vain.

    .....

    Adopt each and every path of righteousness for who knows from which of these paths you will be accepted?

    ……

    Rejoice and be happy that the field of achieving nearness to God is vacant. Every nation is in love with the world and to what pleases God the world pays no attention. Now is the time for those who wish to enter this door that they, mustering all their strength, show their mettle and win the much coveted prize from God.

    ……

    Don't think that God will let you go to waste. You are the seed which the Hand of God has sown in the earth. God says that this seed will grow and flower and its branches will spread in all directions and it will become a huge tree. So, blessed is one who believes in what God says and does not fear the trials which he suffers in His path. For, the coming of trials is essential so that God may try you to see who is true in his declaration of Bai‘at and who is false.

    …..

    God addressed me and said that I should inform my Jama‘at that those who believe and their belief is not adulterated with worldly considerations and is free from hypocrisy and cowardice and is not found wanting at any stage of obedience, such people are the favourites of God. And God says that indeed these are the ones whose station is that of Truth.




    Quotes from Holy Quran

    Allah has promised to those among you who believe and do good works that He will surely make them Successors in the earth, as He made Successors from among those who were before them; and that He will surely establish for them their religion which He has chosen for them; and that He will surely give them in exchange security and peace after their fear: They will worship Me, and they will not associate anything with Me. Then whoso is ungrateful after that, they will be the rebellious. (24:56)

    And observe Prayer and give the Zakat and obey the Messenger, that you may be shown mercy. (24:57)
