After Tasha’hud, Ta’awwuz and recitation of Surah Al-Fatihah Huzoor, may Allah be pleased with him, recited the following verse of the Holy Qur’an:
“O ye people! Fear your Lord Who created you from a single soul and of its kind created its mate, and from them twain created many men and women; and fear Allah, in Whose name you appeal to one another, and fear Him particularly respecting ties of kinship. Verily, Allah watches over you.” (4:2)

Lately, there have been an increasing number of posts across the internet about the state of marriage within the Ahmadiyya Muslim community. Firstly, of what concern anybody’s marriage is to anyone except for the parties directly involved is beyond me! Seriously, do these posters have nothing better to write about than marriage within the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community? Secondly, do they have so little regard for Almighty Allah and His Prophet (sall Allahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) that they repeatedly ignore that ”ghibah” (back-biting) and ”namimah” (malicious gossip) are sins and in many cases major sins? Take note, as I have already explained, the acts of ”ghibah” or ”namimah” involve telling a true fact about someone else. So it simply does not cut mustard to say: ”But what I said about that person was the truth, I didn’t lie – honest…” If you lie then you have committed slander – a completely separate act and sin.
