It is narrated in Sahih al-Bukhari that on one occasion, the Holy Prophetsa, addressing the believers, foretold that a time would come when the “scholars” would preach and promote things that are against Islamic traditions.
Hazrat Huzayfa bin al-Yamaan, upon hearing this, asked what should one do in such a time and era. The Holy Prophetsa replied:
تَلْزَمُ جَمَاعَةَ الْمُسْلِمِينَ وَإِمَامَهُمْ
“Attach yourself firmly with the Jamaat of Muslims and their Imam.” (Sahih al-Bukhari, Kitab al-Fitan)
In 1937, Hazrat Musleh-e-Maudra, whilst advising the Jamaat that true success can only be achieved when united at the hand of one Khalifa, said:
“I advise you that no matter how wise and intellectual you may be, you will not be able to benefit religion by following your own tactics and intellects, until and unless your faculties and plans are subordinate to Khilafat; unless you follow the Imam, you cannot get the help and support of Allah Almighty. Thus, if you seek the succour of God Almighty, then remember that there is no other way to achieve it unless you get up, sit down, stand, walk, speak or remain silent at my command.” (Al Fazl, 4 September 1937)
Earlier this week, on 25 October 2020, members of Mauritius’ national amilas of Majlis Ansarullah, Majlis Khuddam-ul-Ahmadiyya, and Lajna Imaillah were blessed with the opportunity to have an online mulaqat with Hazrat Amirul Momineen, Khalifatul Masih V, may Allah be his Helper.
As history testifies, the Jamaat has continued to see prosperity under the guidance and leadership of the Khalifa.
Gathered in Darus Salam Mosque in Rose Hill, members of the amila had the opportunity to present their reports and received valuable advice, guidance and direction from Hazrat Amirul Momineenaa.
Insha–Allah, Al Hakam will provide the detailed report on this mulaqat in an upcoming issue.
