Huzoor a.a. mentions markaz move to Islamabad (Tilford) in Friday Sermon
Towards the end of his Friday Sermon earlier today, Hazrat Amirul Momineen, Khalifatul Masih Vaa mentioned the revelation vouchsafed to the Promised Messiahas by Allah the Almighty:
“Enlarge your abode.” Huzooraa said that Allah intended that the Promised Messiahas extend his facilities so as to house the growing needs of the Jamaat that he had founded under Divine instruction.
Hazrat Khalifatul Masihaa said that with the passage of time, we have witnessed how Allah has blessed the Jamaat with immense expansion and growth. The revelation actually pointed to the glory and prosperity that was destined to come to Islam through the Promised Messiahas and extension in all facilities would be required. We witness this promise of Allah being manifested globally.
Huzooraa stated that ever since the migration of Khilafat to England in 1984, the expansion of the Jamaat had resulted in extension of buildings and facilities.
When Hazrat Khalifatul Masih IVrh migrated to London, Allah showed His support by granting the Jamaat, alongside many other blessings, the land of Islamabad in Tilford, Surrey. This soon turned into a colony of houses, offices and a residential facility for the Khalifatul Masih.
Hazrat Amirul Momineenaa recalled how Hazrat Khalifatul Masih IVrh had mentioned to him that Islamabad was a great blessing of Allah and that he had expressed his desire to establish the headquarters of the Jamaat in Islamabad.
Huzooraa stated that by the grace of Allah, the Jamaat had now been able to develop offices, a residential colony for waqifeen and a residence for Khalifatul Masih.
After the migration of Khilafat to London, markazi offices had been housed in residential properties around the Fazl Mosque. This frequently called for the local residents and council complaining about the residential properties being used for official purposes.
Now, with the new complex in Islamabad, some markazi offices on Gressenhall Road shall move to the new facility. The markaz also purchased an office complex in Farnham a few years earlier and then Majlis Khuddam-ul-Ahmadiyya UK secured a building nearby.
Hadiqatul Mahdi, the UK Jalsa Gah, has been near Alton since 2006 – also a short distance from Islamabad. Jamia Ahmadiyya UK that was initially based in London was moved to Haslemere, Surrey to a much vast and better building in 2012. All these facilities to be in close proximity of Islamabad was not intentionally planned. Huzooraa said that it seems to be Allah’s plan that all these facilities were being established in a couple of miles radius of Islamabad – the new Markaz.
Huzooraa instructed the Jamaat to pray that Allah blessed the new setup.
Huzooraa stated that since Khalifatul Masih’s office and residence too have been established in Islamabad, Huzooraa would soon be moving from London to Islamabad, Insha-Allah.
Huzooraa urged the Jamaat to pray that Islamabad, in line with its name, becomes a centre of resonating the message of Islam to the world.
Huzooraa said that although the he would lead the Jumuah prayers in Baitul Futuh, London, there will be facility for the Jamaats within a 20-mile radius of Islamabad to attend the Jumuah in the newly built mosque of Islamabad.
Huzooraa instructed that those travelling to Islamabad should bear in mind that local residents and authorities should be given no reason to complain about traffic and any other related issues.
May Allah bless for every member of the Jamaat and especially for Hazrat Amirul Momineenaa. May this migration prove to be a means of further expanding the progress of Jamaat-e-Ahmadiyya in Islam and may the new markaz become a beacon of light for all those that travel from every distant track.
