Ahmadiyya Khalifa’s recent Tour to Holland and Germany
(Given below is an excerpt the Friday Sermon of Hazrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad, Supreme Head of the world-wide Ahmadiyya Muslim Community in Islam, delivered on 8th June 2012 at ‘Baithul Futhuh’, London, U.K., gave a discourse on his recent successful tour to Holland and Germany.
Ahmadiyya Khalifa began the sermon by saying that not only every Ahmadi, but also our opponents can see the fulfillment of the promises God made to Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad of Qadian – the Promised Messiah (on whom be peace).
The Promised Messiah (on whom be peace) explained in his book Baraheen e Ahmadiyya that in the verse ‘…and will place those who follow thee above those who disbelieve until the Day of Resurrection…’ (3:56) is a Divine promise with his Community (Jama’at). He wrote in October 1902 that God’s promises are true and likened his own time to sowing of seed. He also said that if there had been no opponents, the Jama’at would not have seen miraculous progress because miracles are burnished with opposition. He wrote that God was increasing the Jama’at in size in an astonishing manner. Could it be something he or his Jama’at had managed? Certainly not; it was God’s work.
We witness corroboration of this on a daily basis, pious-natured people are entering the Jama’at and the Jama’at is being blessed in its resources and its people. The opponents are consumed with jealousy and every day some news or the other comes from Pakistan to this effect. Recently a wretched shop put an image of the Promised Messiah (on whom be peace) on a door mat so that it may be trampled on. A decent officer from the authorities took notice of this and had the door mat removed. These people should remember that God’s sense of honour will definitely avenge such treatment of those who are dear to Him. These people and their ringleaders will become a cautionary sign and a time will come that not only their images, they too will be trampled. We are patient and no matter what they do we will never take the law in our hands. We should intensify our prayers; these alone are our weapons, we have no other weapons. Some people put forward suggestions to take other measures. They should first take their prayers to the highest point.
God’s help and corroboration is with the Jama’at as pious-natured people are drawn to the Promised Messiah (on whom be peace) and enter the Jama’at. People who do not even believe in the existence of God are compelled to opine that this Community is progressing by the day and its teaching is going to be triumphant. As the Promised Messiah (on whom be peace) said this is God’s work and through it wondrous signs emerge. People of the Community as much as touch a task and God brings about thousand-fold results. This gives rise to jealousy among the opponents. (...)
