After reciting the Tauz, the Tashahhud and the first chapter of the Holy Quran Imam Zafrullah Domun said:

Last week I spoke about how untrue it is to say that an amir is to be obeyed in all circumstances. I made it clear from several hadiths quoted from the book “Sahih Muslim” that the Holy prophet saw qualified the obedience due to the one in authority whether he is a caliph or an amir. Hence we have understood that all instructions received from an amir that go against basic commands of Allah should not be obeyed. All such instructions, if obeyed will lead one to hell instead of Paradise. So if someone obeys an unislamic instruction of his amir or caliph he is disobeying Allah and he or she will have to account for it.

These days the leadership in Ahmadiyya Muslim Association is imposing upon innocent Ahmadis to follow the instructions of their caliph with regard to social boycott of their brothers and sisters. This is an instruction that is against the teachings of Islam. All those who abet their amir in its implementation are only inviting ruin upon themselves. The Holy Prophet saw has made it crystal clear that there is no obedience in disobedience to Allah; obedience is due in only that which is ma’roof (good and reasonable). We all know quite well that neither the Holy Quran nor Hazrat Mohammadsaw nor Hazrat Masih Maood as ever prescribed social boycott as a means of imposing conformity. The enemies of Islam or good Muslims always use it against the true believers. Hence today one can easily infer who Ahmadis of today are. They identify themselves more with the enemies of Allah rather than the friends of Allah. This is the result of the misguided leadership that tries to impose their view of Islam on the rest of the people.

But Allah has not left the people alone to fend for themselves when such misguided leadership is holding them under their sway. Some Ahmadis have told me that they are aware that there are several problems within Jamaat Ahmadiyya. However they think that reform should take place within the Jamaat. Some mistakenly think that they can influence the leadership to change course and they are striving to do something towards that end. But real reform has never come from within. For reform to take place from within we need open mindedness not slavish adherence to cultural norms established in backward countries like Pakistan. We need a new mindset that 

helps the people to understand what is wrong with current practices and be bold enough to bring in the necessary changes that are needed. If the people can do it, so much the better. But if they cannot because they have been mentally enslaved for too long period then Allah out of his mercy sends them a liberator. That liberator gets a mandate from Allah to guide the people. Such guides are not at all interested in enslaving others to become their adherents. They are primarily interested in helping the people to understand that they are free human beings and that Allah is the one that they should obey and not those who pretend that they are from Allah. Such guides are sent to liberate the people from all sorts of shackles (physical or mental) and help them to worship their Lord in the true sense of the word. In the Holy Quran Allah says repeatedly “Innal hoda hodallah” which means “Truly it is Allah’s guidance that is the True guidance”. When Allah sends someone for the guidance of others he equips that person to guide and He stands by him wherever he is. Although that person may feel in his heart of heart that he has a real daunting task in front of him, yet step by step Allah guides him and gives him the determination to push ahead despite all odds. In fact it is in reference to such guides that the Holy Prophet’s words “he who does not recognize the imam of his time dies in ignorance”were pointing. Therefore it is in the interest of each Ahmadi that he tries to know whether his caliph is that person or someone else. An Ahmadi cannot close his ears and eyes and wait for revelation from Allah to tell him who is the right imam although I cannot deny that this might happen to some persons that Allah wants to guide. But in the majority of cases people have to make a quest and read, talk and discuss to deepen their own understanding. To live like the Jamaat wants you to live by blindly accepting unislamic orders is to accept to lead the life of slave. Who would like to lead such a life but the one who wants to make a fool of himself or herself.

Those who have had the opportunity to read the hadiths that speak about the Imam Mahdi would be surprised to learn how according to these hadiths the arrival of the Imam Mahdi will usher in a period of peace in the world. For example we read that the Holy Prophet has said:

"Even if the entire duration of the world's existence has already been exhausted and only one day is left (before the day of judgment), Allah will expand that day to such a length of time, as to accommodate the kingdom of a person from my Ahlul-Bayt who will be called by my name. He will fill out the earth with peace and justice as it will have been full of injustice and tyranny (by then)."(Tirmizi, Abu Daud).

"We (I and my family) are members of a household that Allah (SWT) has chosen for them the life of the Hereafter over the life of this world; and the members of my household (Ahlul-Bayt) shall suffer a great affliction and they shall be forcefully expelled from their homes after my death; then there will come people from the East carrying black flags, and they will ask for some good to be given to them, but they shall be refused service; as such, they will wage war and emerge victorious, and will be offered that which they desired in the first place, but they will refuse to accept it till they pass it to a man from my family (Ahlul-Bayt) appears to fill the Earth with justice as it has been filled with corruption. So whoever reaches that (time) ought to come to them even if crawling on the ice/snow since among them is the Vicegerent of Allah (Khalifatullah) al-Mahdi."(Ibn Majah)

Again we will not go into details to see if in history these events have happened as predicted or not. Now we all know that Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad as has said that

Allah has made him the Mahdi. We Ahmadis believe in this. But the majority of Muslims do not believe so. Being the Jamaat of the Mahdi it is therefore incumbent upon us at least to try to give to that Jamaat a coloring that was given to it by the Holy Prophet. At least in this Jamaat we should have seen peace and justice prevail. The caliphs maintain that they are capable to lead the Jamaat. But we ask where is the peace and where is the Justice?

In fact when we see Jamaat Ahmadiyya very closely we see a group of people who are so ignorant of basic Islamic teachings that mistakes and mistakes are being committed one after the other. People are forced to go against basic Islamic teachings under threat and blackmail. Out of love some people invite their friends to the marriage of their sons or daughters. But the Amir brandishes the caliph’s unislamic instructions and immediately invitations are withdrawn. Can you imagine that these ignorant leaders are doing all these unislamic practices in the name of Islam and in the Jamaat of the Mahdi, promised by the Holy Prophet Mohammadsaw.

What is worse is that the caliphs are uttering many preposterous statements that contradict what Hazrat Masih Al Mahdi has said. For example Hazrat Masih Maood as has told us that Allah will continue to send His chosen ones for the guidance of mankind till the end of times. But the third caliph Mirza Nasir Ahmad said that there will be no more mojaddids who will come after Hazrat Masih Maood as. The fourth caliph went even further and said that women are mojaddid in Jamaat Ahmadiyya. As far as the fifth caliph is concerned you all know what he said in his end of century message about Allah speaking to Hazrat Masih about khilafat. Up till today neither he nor his people have been able to quote from Hazrat Masih Maood’s book what he attributed to him! This is the situation of the leadership of the Jamaat for noble teachings that was created by Hazrat Masih Maood as. The truth is that misguided leaders at all levels are misguiding the Ahmadis everywhere as far as the fundamental teachings of Ahmadiyyat are concerned.

I think that by now it should be quite clear in the minds of thinking Ahmadis that we all have been taken for a ride. The Jamaat’s leadership has deviated from the teachings of Hazrat Masih Maood as and they are leading Ahmadis astray. But Allah has already made provision for correcting these fundamental errors. Due to the net today we are aware of some major mistakes that have been committed in the past. For example we understand that one of the sons of the second caliph, namely Mian Rafi Ahmad (1927-2004) claimed that he was a recipient of revelation but he was immediately sidelined and persecuted starting from around 1966 till his death in 2004. He wrote and spoke against the idea that was spread at that time by the third caliph and his Anjuman that there would no longer be mojjadid because khilafat Ahmadiyya was well established. Some of his writings have been published on the net but we need to know more in order to make an opinion about the whole issue. Anyhow what we learn from his case is that it is quite common in Jamaat Ahmadiyya to ostracize those who say that they are receiving revelations from Allah and that they may have a mission from Allah. How unfortunate! Out of ignorance Ahmadis treat their divinely appointed benefactors as their enemies despite the fact that they have been brought up to believe otherwise. If this has happened in Jamaat Ahmadiyya it is because the leaders have not cared about the teachings of the Founder Hazrat Masih Maood as and they have invented their own teachings and they want to impose it over the people.

In the Holy Quran there is a verse which runs as follows: “Wal takoum minkoum oummatoun yad’ouna elal khayre wa ya’morouna bil ma’roofé wa yanhawna anil mounkar wa oulaaeka homoul mouflehoune.” We translate this as “And let there be among you a body of men who should invite to goodness, and enjoin what is good and reasonable  and forbid evil. And it is they who shall prosper.”(3:105). Many times Allah has revealed this verse to me. But sometimes instead of wa oulaaeka homoul mouflehoune, I received wa yosaare’ouna fil khayraat” and they vie with one another in doing good deeds. You will notice that in this verse Allah speaks about enjoining what is ma’roof (good and reasonable). Therefore within the community of Muslims there should always be people who should be fulfilling the above injunctions of Allah. But unfortunately these days within the majority Jamaat this is not being done. On the contrary the mental enslavement of the people is such that no one dares to speak out against the injustice that is being practiced on a large scale within the Jamaat to try to harm others.

Some three to four years back Allah once revealed to me with reference to Jamaat Ahmadiyya in Mauritius “Tahsabohoum Jami’an wa qoloubohaoum shatta”. It means “you think them to be united but their hearts are divided”. These we know quite well how is going on inside. There is plenty of divisions and disagreement. If there is one thing on which there is unity, it is not on Allah but on the enmity that they have for members of Jamaat Ahmadiyya Al Mouslemeen. Consequently last Saturday night Allah revealed to me “Sa yahzomoul jam’o wa yowallounad dobour” which means “

The hosts shall soon be routed and will turn their backs in flight.”

I understand this to mean those who came together to fight us will soon be routed and they will take to their heels. I say it again that I am not here to inflict any kind of pain on anyone. But if you think that you can fight me then get prepared do fight the one who has sent me. Your record for the past year alone is very revealing how you are succeeding! I tell all those Ahmadis who think that they know Ahmadiyyat and Islam to cross not swords but only pen with me and witness their defeat. I will end with these verses  from the poem of Hazrat Masih Maood as :

Agar tera bhi kouch din hai badl de jo mein kehta houn

Ke moujhe ko izzat auwr toum pé malamat anewali hai

Translation :

If you also you have been given something, then change what I am saying:

I will be honoured and you will suffer defeat.

May Allah help our friends to understand before it is too late. Ameen
