“…And Allah calls to the abode of peace, and guides whom He pleases to the straight path’ (10:26)…”
continued from yesterday
Huzoor said the main thing is sincerity and not majority. One should go where God’s grace is.
Someone writes from Gambia that one night he saw a dream that a person comes to him and holds him hand firmly and says Assalamoalaikum warahatullah to him. He does not recognise the person and asks people who he is. People tell him that he is the Imam of the Ahmadiyya Jama’at. Next morning he went to our mission house and related the dream to our mu’allim. The mu’allim had MTA on which was broadcasting Huzoor’s Friday sermon at the time. When the guest saw Huzoor on MTA he remarked that this indeed was the person who had appeared in his dream the night before and he accepted Ahmadiyyat Islam.
Niab Nazir Dawat Lillah writes from Qadian that a person called Lal Din saw a dream in which a deceased child tells him that four people will visit him and tell him about Islam. He was advised to accept what the visitors told him and to put it in practice. Nazir Sahib writes when they arrived at Lal Din’s house and gave him the message of Ahmadiyyat he told them that he had been informed of their visit through dream and he said he had been waiting for them. Following this Lal Din Sahib, his sons and the rest of his family took Bai’at.
A new Ahmadi from a local Jama’at of Kyrgyzstan writes that once during Asr Salat he experienced a vision in which he heard the verse of Surah Yunus: ‘And Allah calls to the abode of peace, and guides whom He pleases to the straight path’ (10:26) in his right ear. He was then told that teachers from India will explain the commentary of the verse to him. This is when this condition went away and he was left amazed at what he had experienced. He says he did not even know about India at the time. Later, when he went to Russia for employment purposes he met people from India but did not have any religious discussions with them. Gradually he himself became aware of matters of faith and was introduced to Ahmadiyyat and joined it in 2012. He had understood the significance of the Quranic verse; people from India were going to be a source of guidance for him!
Our missionary from the Maharashtra region of India writes that in a village of the area a woman called Sultana Begum was a fierce opponent of Ahmadiyyat. Her husband had accepted Ahmadiyyat and there was great upheaval in the family and there was fear they would get divorced. Her husband stayed firm on his belief and asked the Jama’at to advise her. Jama’at told her that her husband was on the truth and she should also pray God would show a miracle. However, she felt Ahmadiyyat would ruin her faith and although they had MTA at home, she watched other channels. God’s power manifested in a dream the lady had. She saw a holy person recites the Kalima and says that the Holy Qur’an is the final Shariah and it should be followed. She felt this holy person was the Holy Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be on him). This dream did not convince her although she went quiet after seeing it. She has another dream in which she saw that Ahmadiyyat had spread all around their area and whoever she speaks to is an Ahmadi. She saw the kalima written on an egg yolk and it is also written that the Imam Mahdi has come! In the dream she says to her brother who is also an opponent of Ahmadiyyat that these people are truthful! Next morning she took Bai’at.
Our mu’allim from the Koulikoro region of Mali writes that an elderly man from a village told him that he had seen a dream a long time ago that he is climbing a very high wall. Once he reaches up the wall he sees flowers and on the right side of the flowers are some people. He is told in the dream that if he wishes to learn about Islam and recognise the Holy Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be on him) he should join those people. He did not understand what this meant. Now that he had started listening to Ahmadiyya radio he saw another dream in which he is told to join the people of Ahmadiyya radio and he will reach God. He accepted Ahmadiyyat after this.
The responsibility of those of us who are born Ahmadis and long-term Ahmadis increases after we listen to accounts of those who are guided by God. We should keep an eye on our own condition and create a connection with God and correct our practices. We should always remember lest our indolence deprives us. It is God’s decree that Ahmadiyyat is going to move onwards and upwards, what we need to do is pay attention that we are also part of this onward progression.
There are also accounts where people have issued Fatwas against us but God has caused those who seek these Fatwas themselves become targets of the edicts!
An Ahmadi lady from Egypt writes that her father belongs to an Islamic organisation and follows it blindly. His organisation sought another Egyptian organisation to issue a Fatwa against Ahmadiyyat declaring it to be outside Islam. Once, her father made a false allegation against Ahmadis when their relatives were around. She felt very helpless and raised her hands in prayer and pleaded to God to support Ahmadiyyat with His grace and avenge those who spoke falsehood and claimed to speak the truth. While she was fasting in Shawal she switched on the TV and heard the news in amazement that Al Azhar had declared that very organisation (which had passed a Fatwa against us) to be outside of Islam. She said she raised a slogan of Allaho Akbar and said the Promised Messiah (on whom be peace) was indeed truthful. She told her father this was an answer for him in the form of a greater and more powerful Fatwa!
