Following series of senseless attacks, brutal killings of members of Ahmadiyya Jama’at and the subsequent Government White Paper to ‘classify’ the Community as non-Muslims, the fourth Khalifatul delivered a series of Friday Sermons later published with the title ‘Their Ulema’ to refute all the baseless allegations against the Founder of this divine Community, Hadhrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad (as).
In the next few days, these sermons shall once again be serialized in order to remind the world where we stand and what we hold as truth.
Kindly read on…
*لَأَنتُمْ أَشَدُّ رَهْبَةً فِى صُدُورِهِم مِّنَ ٱللَّهِۚ ذَٰلِكَ بِأَنَّهُمْ قَوْمٌ لَّا يَفْقَهُونَ # لَا يُقَٰتِلُونَكُمْ جَمِيعًا إِلَّا فِى قُرًى مُّحَصَّنَةٍ أَوْ مِن وَرَآءِ جُدُرٍۭۚ بَأْسُهُم بَيْنَهُمْ شَدِيدٌۚ تَحْسَبُهُمْ جَمِيعًا وَقُلُوبُهُمْ شَتَّىٰۚ ذَٰلِكَ بِأَنَّهُمْ قَوْمٌ لَّا يَعْقِلُونَ # كَمَثَلِ ٱلَّذِينَ مِن قَبْلِهِمْ قَرِيبًاۖ ذَاقُوا۟ وَبَالَ أَمْرِهِمْ وَلَهُمْ عَذَابٌ أَلِيمٌ.* (Q59:14-16)
“The translation of these verses is apparently very simple. It does not seem as though these verses have deeper meanings, which, upon reflection, become more obvious. But, whenever one reflects over any verse of the Holy Qur’an, no matter how simple it may seem, a whole new world of meanings opens up. Like the surface of deep oceans, Qur’anic verses sometimes seem to move along with serenity so that a casual reader does not see a whole world of meanings hidden in the depths of the verses.
The first verse I recited contains some very unusual claims.
“For example, addressing the Holy Prophet Muhammad (sa) and his Companions (ra), the statement that their opponents are overwhelmed with fear seems strange and unusual as they (the Muslims) were thought to be so weak, powerless, and so helpless that even the most wretched were abusing and insulting the noble Companions (ra) who professed to follow the Holy Prophet Muhammad (sa). Street urchins even stoned the Holy Prophet Muhammad (sa) and his Companions (ra), abusing them with impudence.
“They forced Muslims to flee from their homes, and even then did not leave them alone — they attacked them most relentlessly. In spite of all this, it is being stated:
“That your enemies dread you to such an extent that they do not even fear Allah as much. Or, they have so much fear of you that they even forget the fear of Allah.”
The question becomes:
‘What kind of fear is this?’
“This fear, in fact, is the fear of the victory of Islam, not of physical superiority. It is the fear of the force that arises and comes to life with rational arguments, that has the power to dominate with rational arguments. This is the fear that the enemies of truth have always had. They are so fearful that even the fear of Allah fades away in comparison.
“These opponents ignore the arguments of those who are firmly established on the path of truth, and abandoning the fear of Allah, they brazenly attack them. *This manner of confrontation shows that they have no fear of Allah. If they had any, why would they use such disgraceful means to fight the truth, behave so callously, and employ falsehood and deceit?* The enemies of truth fear the force that they perceive as strengthening on its own.
“Apparently, when this force has not gained much strength, they are not dissuaded from attacking and brutally suppressing it. If it were not for this phobia, why would they attack the Holy Prophet Muhammad(sa) and his Companions(ra)?
Cowardly Attacks against Ahmadiyyat
“The fear is of manifest and distinguishing truth and the reasoning that Islam brought with it. This is like the fear that darkness has to light. The darkness of night fears even the first ray of the morning, though that ray cannot overwhelm the night. But the night knows in its heart that the first ray of the morning will consume it, and efface it from this world.
“The enemies of truth have the same kind of fear. This persistent fear is apparent in the manner in which they attack. This aspect is also evident in the recent atrocities committed against the Ahmadiyyat Muslim Jama‘at. Another aspect from the verses mentioned above is described in the following part of the Holy Qur’an:
“It says that they attack you from fortified towns. They attack you in such countries in which they know there can be no response. They attack you from such countries where they know that they have obvious material superiority and are under the protection of those governments. They are terrified to attack you in the free world where they flee at the sight of you. What a great point pertaining to the human psyche that has been discussed in the Holy Qur’an. It says that the way they fight tells you that they are cowards.
“To confiscate the books of the Ahmadiyyat Muslim Jama‘at, to attack incessantly, and to deny the right to respond is the same story that has been described in the Holy Qur’an…
