This Week in History: 25 June – 1 July


25 June 1921: Hazrat Musleh-e-Maudra set out for his Kashmir tour and returned on 29 September 1921. During this tour, Huzoorra mostly stayed in Srinagar. The Jamaats of Kashmir benefited a lot from Hazrat Musleh-e-Maud’sra presence. Around 90 people pledged allegiance during this tour. On 22 August 1921, Huzoorra went to Mohalla Khanyar along with his family, and prayed at the tomb of Prophet Jesusas and donated some money to the caretaker of the tomb for repair work.

26 June 1937: During the Khilafat of Hazrat Musleh-e-Maudra, many conspiracies were hatched against the Jamaat. Some of these plots were so alarming that in all likelihood, the Jamaat could have been wiped off the face of the earth. Huzoorra overcame every obstacle with amazing courage. He foretold that every plot would fail and every prediction made by Huzoorra came true. In 1937, Sheikh Abdur Rahman Misri, former principal of Madrasa Ahmadiyya, started creating a rift in the community. He wrote vilifying letters and tried his utmost to create disorder within the Jamaat. Hazrat Musleh-e-Maud’sra wise reply was published in this day’s issue of Al Fazl along with the announcement of his expulsion from the Jamaat.

26 June 1942: With the expansion of war fronts, the flames and horrors of World War II started engulfing the Middle East, Egypt and other neighbouring areas. Hazrat Musleh-e-Maudra asked his followers to sincerely pray for the security and sanctity of sacred places located in the Muslim world. This was very much appreciated by the opponents of Ahmadiyyat as well. A newspaper of the Ahrar group, Zamzam, said in its 19 July 1942 issue:

“Under these circumstances, the Khalifa Sahib has shown such righteous indignation for Islam with reference to Egypt and the Holy Land of the Hijaz that we are greatly indebted to him and by expressing his concern, he has rightly represented the feelings of Muslims.”

It further stated:

Zamzam concedes that the concern shown by the Khalifa in regard to the sacred places, is completely correct.” (Al Fazl, 22 July 1942, p. 1)

27 June 1905: Hazrat Hakim Maulvi Nuruddinra celebrated his son, Abdul Haye Sahib’s first reading of the Holy Quran. Under the guidance of the Promised Messiahas, he also arranged food for people.

On this occasion, Hazrat Sahibzada Mirza Bashiruddin Mahmud Ahmad Sahibra wrote a poem, and a special issue of Al Hakam was also published. Hazrat Sheikh Yaqub Ali Irfanira expressed to Hazrat Hakim Maulvi Nuruddinra that he wished that a hafiz-e-Quran be appointed in Madrasa Talim-ul-Islam who would teach and help others to memorise the Holy Quran. Hazrat Hakim Maulvi Nuruddinra agreed and stated that his heart also desired the same. However, it was not possible in the given circumstances.

29 June 1931: Hazrat Mirza Bashiruddin Mahmud Ahmad, Musleh-e-Maudra, arranged a gathering for extended family members in connection with the completion of the first reading of the Holy Quran by seven of his children. Huzoorra also wrote a poem on this occasion paying gratitude to Allah.

The names of those children are as follows: Sahibzada Mirza Nasir Ahmad Sahibrh, Sahibzadi Nasira Begum Sahiba, Mirza Mubarak Ahmad Sahib, Amatul Qayum Begum Sahiba, Mirza Munawar Ahmad Sahib, Amatur Rashid Begum Sahiba, Amatul Aziz Begum Sahiba.

29 June 1938: Hazrat Musleh-e-Maudra sent his son, Mirza Mubarak Ahmad Sahib to Egypt so he could acquire knowledge of Arabic and excel his experience in agriculture from the land of Egypt.

On this occasion, Hazrat Musleh-e-Maudra wrote down and highlighted some important matters and gave some advice to Mirza Mubarak Ahmad Sahib, which has been recorded on pages 485 to 490 in the seventh volume of Tarikh-e-Ahmadiyyat.

Among many other important matters, Huzoorra mentioned the importance of offering prayer at its prescribed time and in congregation. 

30 June 1967: Sir Farimang Mamadi Singateh, Ahmadi Governor of the Gambia, West Africa, during his tour of the UK, visited the Fazl Mosque, London. A dinner was held in his honour.

1 July 1931: The education of girls has always remained a salient feature of the Ahmadiyya Jamaat from its beginnings. On this day, Hazrat Musleh-e-Maudra inaugurated the faculty of arts for girls in Qadian. 

On this occasion, Huzoorra said, with respect to children’s schooling and education, that an all-inclusive school ought to be set up for youngsters under the management of ladies who would then be able to impart extraordinary ethics and morals to them directly from adolescence. Huzoorra added that this could only be achieved once there was a high number of educated women.

1 July 1955: Hazrat Musleh-e-Maudra delivered a Friday Sermon in The Hague. At the end of this sermon, Huzoorra stated that he desired to continue to serve humanity till his last breath.
