Congratulatory letters and faxes are being received from around the world on the successful conclusion of UK Jalsa Salana expressing the benefits derived from watching the proceedings on MTA. Real benefit and beneficence of Jalsa can only be attained when whatever is seen and heard is made a source of spiritually adorning one's life. Certainly no political or worldly matters are discussed at Jalsa, in fact when some distinguished non-Muslim or non-Ahmadi guests briefly address Jalsa most of them are mainly impressed by the spiritual atmosphere of Jalsa and base their comments on the teachings of the Jama'at. Jalsa is of course truly beneficial when all that is heard is put in practice by members of the Jama'at. Otherwise all the praise extended by the guests will be about something superficial. There needs to be uniformity between the inner and outer self of true believers.
After greeting everyone with "Assalamo-Alaikum wa Rahmatullah" - peace be upon you and the Mercy of Allah - and bearing witness to the absolute Unity of Allah and that Muhammad is His Messenger and Servant, and seeking the protection of Allah against Satan, Huzur Aqdas (may Allah strengthen him with His Mighty Help) recited Sura Al-Fatiha, and then said that:
With the grace of God Jalsa Salana of Jama'at Ahmadiyya UK starts from next week. Volunteers have been busy for past several weeks at Hadiqatul Mahdi preparing for Jalsa. These preparations by Khuddam and other volunteers have intensified in the last ten days. It is no mean feat to make all the arrangements on what is essentially farmland. Khuddam from various parts of the UK and other volunteers do this task with amazing skill, and no example of this can be found in the whole world in any other organisation. It is a grace of God that He has instilled this passion in young men and others after taking Bai'at of the Promised Messiah (on whom be peace). Sunshine or rain these young men serve selflessly for Jalsa Salana as initiated and established by the Promised Messiah (on whom be peace). And during Jalsa days thousands of other volunteers will join them to serve the guests and to make the operations of Jalsa Salana run smoothly. Later, a lot of time is required to wrap up the entire setup.
When we read or hear accounts of the companions of the Promised Messiah (on whom be peace) we note and observe their intense desire to recognise the truth, their intense desire to make financial and personal sacrifice and their demonstration, on individual levels, of ardent love and devotion for the Promised Messiah (on whom be peace). These were the latter-ones who tried to fulfil the dues of joining the ranks of the earlier-ones. Each had his own individual manner and style. Those who saw them or were close to them also learnt from them according to their own capacities and drew conclusions from some matters.
Recently a short video clip was shown to Hazrat Khalifatul Masih of an African Maulawi teaching the Holy Qur'an to adults and beating them pitilessly on making minor mistakes. Someone whose language is not Arabic and is of an older age 17 to 18, or perhaps older, cannot pronounce each letter accurately like a person who has been trained to recite the Holy Qur'an (called qari). It is because of such attitudes that people shy away from reading the Holy Qur'an and many non-Arab Muslims do not know how to read it.
Today's Friday sermon was based on writings and observations of Hazrat Musleh Maud (may Allah be pleased with him) illustrating the blessed life of the Promised Messiah (on whom be peace).
'O ye who believe! when the call is made for Prayer on Friday, hasten to the remembrance of Allah , and leave off all business. That is better for you, if only you knew. And when the Prayer is finished, then disperse in the land and seek of Allah's grace, and remember Allah much, that you may prosper.' (62:10-11)
With the grace of Allah today we are going through the twenty second day of fasting and are in the third ashra (ten days) of Ramadan. According to a saying of the Holy Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be on him) we have passed Ramadan's ten days of God's mercy and then ten days of God's forgiveness and are now going through ten days of salvation from the fire of Hell. It is God's favour on us that He has granted us the opportunity to experience this. However, a true believer has firm belief in God, tries to abide by righteousness and is filled with fear of God and is not merely joyous that the last ten days of Ramadan will be a source of his salvation. No doubt, these days of Ramadan are a source...
We should remember and revisit the commandments given by God in the Holy Qur'an. Those given the responsibility to remind others about the commandments should indeed do so. Those with such responsibility are missionaries and office-holders. With the grace of God the Jama'at operates on central as well as auxiliary levels and these in turn have office-holders from national to neighbourhood level. Each of these office-holders is expected to discharge of the responsibilities as helpers of Khilafat; i.e responsibilities of Khilafat on a wider scale.
The Promised Messiah (on whom be peace) said our Jama'at should not limited themselves to discussions and debates as they are not the real objective. He said purification of the self and reformation are essential and were the purposes for which God had sent him.
Today is Friday and the first day of the blessed month of Ramadan thus making it a day of countless blessings. The Holy Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be on him) said that there is an hour on Friday when whatever a true believer supplicates gains acceptance by God. And he told us about Ramadan that during this month doors to Paradise are opened while doors to Hell are shut. God's grace and mercy is particularly stirred in Ramadan and true believers are showered with blessings. Indeed the Holy Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be on him) said there are some conditions to attract God's grace.
The Promised Messiah (on whom be peace) said that man should seek prayers all the time and in every situation and should adhere to: 'And as for the bounty of your Lord do relate it to others.' (93:12) This increases love of God and enhances passion to be obedient and loyal to God.
