Message of Hazrat Khalifatul Masih II[ra]

Message America

The Message (brought by Maulvi Muhammad Din BA, the second missionary of Islam to America):


His Holiness Mirza Basheer-ud-Din Mahmud Ahmad[ra], the Blessed Leader of the Ahmadia Movement.


The New Moslems in America.

السلام علیکم ورحمۃ اللّٰہ وبرکاتہ

Assalam-o-Alaikum. Peace be with you and the mercy of Allah.

“Though physically I am far away from you, in spirit, I am one with you and my heart is enraptured with love for you. You are a part of myself in our Brotherhood. I regard you all with the same loving consideration as I regard the people who live right here in Qadian. Yet I desire to see you putting forth efforts in the cause of truth and faith, not only like those here, but even going a step higher.

“A believer should strive to excel in the works of Faith. Strive hard then to acquire the knowledge of Faith; see Islam in its true and bright form and make others see its illustrious face.”

True salvation of [African] American

The real solution of the [African American] question

My Dear [African] Americans, 

Assalaam-o-Alaikum. Peace be with you and the mercy of Allah.

The Christian profiteers brought you out of your native lands of Africa and in Christianizing you, they made you forget the religion and language of your forefathers – which were Islam and Arabic. You have experienced Christianity for so many years and it has proved to be no good. It is a failure. Christianity cannot bring real brotherhood to the nations. So, now leave it alone. And join Islam, the real faith of Universal Brotherhood. We have opened a School of Islam and the Arabic Language. Join Islam in the Ahmadia movement, founded by Ahmad[as] of India, the Prophet of the day, and be blessed.
