Hazrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad, Khalifatul Masih V a.a.
Friday Sermon from Valencia
6 April, Valencia
Hazrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad, Khalifatul Masih Vaa delivered the Friday Sermon from Baitur Rehman Mosque on 6 April.
Huzooraa stated that while many Ahmadis had come to Spain to seek political asylum and many others continued to arrive, they should always remember that no false statements should be filed to support their claim of asylum.
The nature of the persecution in Pakistan is such that needs no exaggeration to satisfy the authorities to accept them as refugees.
Huzooraa said that falsehood has been condemned by God Almighty as a form of idol-worship. Hence, the purpose of an Ahmadi should be to break all idols and only seek help from Allah.
The Promised Messiahas emphasised that his followers should abstain from worshipping any idol, whether literal or symbolic. Allah has clearly told us that the sole purpose of our creation is to worship Him alone; this also means that we should never bow before anything or anyone else in seeking help.

Huzooraa said that every Ahmadi carries the responsibility to first understand the purpose of our creation and then to make it known to others.
Huzooraa quoted the Promised Messiahas where he clearly stated that merely saying the words of the Bai’at (the pledge) is of no value; what is important is that one understands the actual purpose behind it, and that is to progress in taqwa (fear of Allah).
Huzooraa drew the attention of Ahmadis to the fact that as world-peace speedily heads towards instability, there is no true refuge but only in having a strong relationship with our Creator.
