Revival of the Islam

When one accepts light, their faces naturally become the receptors and mirrors of that very light – you know what I mean, I hope, enjoy! 🙂 

Alhamdulillah, for those who belong to a living religion,

Wherein it’s mishkat & Sirajun Munira shine as mightily as ever;

Wo to the treacherous, who’s hearts are sealed by their own very hands,

The accursed hands that perceived this religion to be a dead and lifeless tree;

**And they planned and Allah also planned, and Allah is the Best of planners.**

  1. You sir, have to get your facts right… It did not take 1000 years for Islam to spread and reach to various corners of Asia. It infact happened during last Prophet Mohammad (s) time and in next 150 years… There are mosques, records and written material available to prove these facts…

  2. The most striking point for me with Jonathan Butterworth is the fact that he mentions constantly praying to God for direction every step of the way. Asking for guidance without any predetermined conclusions is the way to go. We need Him to find Him.

    I pray Allah ‘breaks my heart’ as He broke Jonathan’s time and time again throughout my life.

  3. I’m ethnically a Pashtun, with my ancestry in Afghanistan. I fluently speak Pashto ( which is my mothertongue, and only learnt Urdu through the Jama’ah (to gain a better understanding of the Promised Messiah’s books, and to understand Hudhur’s [may Allah strengthen his hands and lengthen his life] khutbahs).

    I have Ahmadi Muslim friends who are ethnically Caucasian, Black, ‘Arab, Central Asian, Caribbean, and other nationalities.

    Sure, a lot of Ahmadi Muslims are Pakistani, and particularly Punjabi. However, that doesn’t mean all of them are, and indeed there are Ahmadi Muslims from every race and ethnicity of the 200+ countries in the world.

    The reason for a lot of Ahmadi Muslims (ie. only in Western nations, and in the Indian Subcontinent alone) being of Pakistani origin, is because the Risalah al-Ahmadiyyah reached most effectively to that part of the world, as the Promised Messiah (‘alayhi al-salam) brought his message from Qadiyan. If you look at Islamic history, you will see parallels in that for the first century of Islam, most of the Islamic World was indeed…’Arab. Of course there were settlements of Muslims in Iran, Egypt, and China, but it took 1400+ years for the Muslims to grow to the size they are today.

    So if it took approx. 1 millennium (1000 years) for Islam to reach the shores of al-Hind (India) through the efforts of the Mughal Empire, then why is the same litmus test not applied to Ahmadiyyah, and people expect the entire world to immediately embrace it? Never has a prophet come that the vast majority of the masses vehemently denied him.

    But indeed al-Jama’ah al-Islamiyyah al-Ahmadiyyah is growing, and at an alarmingly rapid rate. It has only been 176 years, as compared to the 1000 years it took for Islam to reach India, and we are established in over 200 nations of the world, in the tens of millions.

    I have an Ahmadi Muslim friend, who heard from his Ahmadi friend that when he went to al-Mysr (Egypt), there would literally be a convert every week from watching MTA al-‘Arabiyyah, converting back to the fitrah (nature) he was born with, and accepting the Sunnah of the Prophet (sallAllahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) in that you MUST accept the Imam Mahdi when he appears and take his bay’ah, even if you have to cross the glaciers on your knees to do so. If you do not, the Prophet (sallAllahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said, “he who does not accept the Imam Mahdi when he already appeared, dies an ignorant death.” So Ahmadi Muslims are simply following the Sunnah of al-Rasul Muhammad (sallAllahu ‘alayhi wa sallam), nothing more, nothing less.

    And I don’t know if people watched the MTA telecast of Jalsa Salana Ghana 2008 in which Hudhur graciously blessed the convention with his presence. There were literally throngs of thousands of Ahmadi Muslims, all ethnically from the African continent. Same goes for the Ahmadi Muslims in Indonesia.

    And anyway, what does race have to do with anything? As the Prophet (sa) said, “Allah does not look at your outward appearance, but looks at your hearts.” Indeed, the point of Ahmadiyyah was to reform humanity from being spiritually and morally savages into enlightened and illuminated beings.

    [Could you please find the exact quotes and share, Jazak Allah: Art of Mis…]

    Let us pray we are not one of those, and instead spiritually become the beautiful ornaments of Islam.

  4. One of the myths that the detractors of the Imam al-Mahdi (a.s.) have been trying to perpetuate, is that the Ahmadiyya Muslim Jama’at is essentially composed of Pakistanis, and in particular Punjabis, in their desperation to “prove” that Ahmadiyyat does not appeal to other nations. The truth is that the Ahmadiyya Movement for the rejuvenation of Islam was launched in India, as per the prophecies of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (s.a.), and its first members were therefore mostly from the Indian subcontinent. Even so, during the lifetime of the Promised Messiah (a.s.), people from Afghanistan, the Arab lands, the USA and Great Britain had begun to accept him. During the caliphate of his Promised Son, Hadrat Mirza Bashir-ud-deen Mahmud Ahmad (r.a.), foreign missions began to be established around the world. Today, people of almost every nation and people on earth have become Ahmadi Muslims, and a large proportion of Ahmadi Muslims do not hail from the Indian subcontinent. They are indebted to the tremendous sacrifices their Indian and Pakistani brothers made for them to receive the message of the Imam al-Mahdi (a.s.). Jonathan Butterworth, who features in the video above, has given a faith-inspiring interview at Baitul Futuh Mosque, which can be watched here:

    Thank you for your valuable information.
