T

he town of Newton in Sierra Leone is located on the main highway of Freetown that connects the capitol to the rest of the country. Interestingly, the city of Newton is named after John Newton, a famous British slave-trader turned abolitionist who latered championed the cause of freedom for slaves. While Newton helped abolished slavery in 1784, it was a millenium earlier that slavery was abolished by Islam. The Noorudin Mosque is now the beacon of light to spread this message of liberation throughout the country. Over one thousand attended the inauguration of this mosque, which was presided by respected Mubarak Tahir, Secretary Nusrat Jehan Scheme, Rabwah.

What is New in the World of Ahmadiyyat ? (continued) New Water Wells established by the Jama’at in Kisumu, Kenya

B

y the Grace of Allah, Jama’at Kenya is engaged in various human welfare projects. In the past the Jama’at previously undertook the digging of two water wells in Luanda and Jabroke. Recently the Jama’at established two more wells in Kumbiwa and Agonja. Four Jama’ats were established in Kumbiwa about a decade ago, where there now exists a mosque. A well was dug in the front of this mosque during a serious drought. After numerous attempts, a concrete water well was successfully installed at a depth of 30 feet. Alhumdolillah, this well provides drinking water to all the neighborhood residents. The second well was dug in the courtyard of the Ugunja mosque at a depth of 25 feet. A concrete reinforcement was installed around this well which also has become the source of drinking water for the surrounding residents. Dr. Shabbir Khan of London financed the installation expenses. Two local devotees,Yousuf Haji and Ishaq Abdullah, supervised this project.

Jamia Ahmadiyya, Germany in Reinstadt

Three dimensional architectural rendering of the new Jamia Ahmadiyya, Germany

J

ama’at Germany is currently operating its local school for missionaries (“Jamia”) at Baitus Subooh, but a new plot of land has been acquired. The new home of Jama’at Germany’s Jamia has been purchased in the city of Reinstadt (a small town located 30 km from Frankfurt). The plot lies next to a previously established Ahmadiyya Mosque. The proper name of this school for missionaries is Jamia Ahmadiyya Institute, Germany. Respected Shamshad Ahmad Qamar has been appointed the Principal. He was previously the Professor of Tafseerul Quran (exegesis) at Jamia in Rabwah. He is a graduate from the Institute for Modern Languages in Islamabad, Pakistan with a specialty in the German language. This new Jamia, which can accommodate up to 150 students, consists of eight classrooms, a media lab, computer lab, swimming pool, a cafeteria, an extensive library and an assembly hall. A dormatory will also be constructed with additional accomodation for 100 students. The dorm will be located on the same piece of land as the Jamia so as to create a full-fledged campus where students can study and live. An Ahmadi German architect, Sister Mubashra Ilyas, has designed this building. Ms. Ilyas is also the architect of three other mosques in Germany, including the Khadija Mosque.

Establishment of Tahrik e Jadid By Sarah Malik, Los Angeles

H

adhrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad, the Promised Messiahas, was sent as a reformer of the time to revive the true essence of Islam. He came bearing a message of peace and unity that he hoped to spread across the world for the betterment of humanity. He once saw a vision of two men sitting in a house, one on the ground and the other near the roof. He told the man on the ground that he needed an army of one hundred thousand to help him spread his message. When no answer was given, he asked the same of the man near the roof. The man denied him one hundred thousand but explained that five thousand soldiers would be given instead. Upon hearing this, the Promised Messiahas recited from the Holy Quran “Many a small party has triumphed over a large party by Allah’s command” (2:250). In 1934, the Jama’at was faced with a number of opponents who anticipated the downfall of Ahmadiyyat. In an effort to restrain his challengers, Hadhrat Khalifatul Masih IIra announced an institution for the Jama’at to spread Allah’s message. He called it Tehrik-e-Jadid, which means the “New Scheme.” He believed that the first five thousand participants would fulfill his father’s vision of the soldiers of Islam. These soldiers were not to fight a war, but to embark upon a spiritual mission to spread to all humankind Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad’sas vision of a new world order. Hadhrat Musleh Mau’oodra motivated members of the Jama’at by publishing an original list of nineteen demands they must follow in order to partake in Tahrik-e-Jadid.

The list was straightforward, reminding Ahmadis to lead simple lives, spread the message of Islam, dedicate time, donate funds and sacrifice extravagance in service of the Jama’at. The initial response from the Jama’at was a testament to their devotion, with members from various countries, including children, raising almost five times the amount of money requested by Huzooraba. Members began to cut out unnecessary spending. They avoided frequenting movie theaters and buying new clothes. They ate simple meals following the advice of Hazrat Musleh Mau’oodra, who, in the spirit of avoiding waste, admonished followers from serving more than one dish at each meal. 1300 members volunteered their vacation time to visit other countries for propagation. Hadhzrat Musleh Mau’oodra himself did not buy any new clothes for four years when Tahrik-e-Jadid was started. He stopped using ice to cool his drinks in the hot summer, and if any gifts were sent to him, he forwarded them to the needy. He illustrated by example that by making small sacrifices throughout our day, we can achieve the Promised Messiahas’s dream of peace and harmony throughout the world. Today, by the Grace of Allah, the sacrifices of our Ahmadi brothers and sisters in the Jama’at have led to the establishment of over 15,000 mosques, more than 550 schools, and forty hospitals in different countries. By following the selfless example of Hazrat Musleh Mau’ood, we are blessed to see that a little bit truly goes a long way.


Hadhrat Mirza Masroor Ahmadaba addresses Glasgow, Scotland City Chambers on March 8, 2009

H

adhrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad, Khalifatul Masih Vaba was welcomed to the city of Glasgow, Scotland by the Lord Provost, Councilor Robert Winter. A reception was held at the beautiful Civic Chambers located in the heart of Glasgow City Center. The chambers were opened by Queen Victoria in 1888. Addressing the estimated 200 people present, Huzooraba said: “The purpose of my role as the worldwide spiritual leader of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Jama’at is twofold: first, to lead mankind towards God Almighty, and, second, to encourage all peoples to live side by side, discharging each other’s rights fairly and without prejudice.” Commenting upon the advances in technology, he said: “Despite the facilities of communication that should have brought people together, walls of hatred have been erected and hearts are being distanced from each other. In summary, what I wish to say is that peace depends on justice, and economic progress depends on peace. This will only happen when man recognizes his Creator, and only then will the rights of God’s creation be discharged.”


The Future of Ahmadiyyat in Japan A Vision of Hadhrat Musleh Maudra

H

adhrat Khalifatul Masih IIra in 1945 saw a vision and also interpreted it. It is presented below: “I saw in a dream that I am in a large and spacious room like the one we are staying in at Sheikh Bashir Ahmad Sahib (Advocate)’s house in Lahore. The room in Sheikh Sahib’s house is on the upper storey but the room in the dream is at ground level. There is a cot on one side of the room and a table next to the wall across the room. In front of the table are two chairs on which are seated my wife, Umme-Mateen and Hadhrat Ummul-Momineen. I am strolling back and forth in the path between the cot and the chairs. There are some snacks on the table. Next to the snacks there is a patch of grass and some wet mud resembling small beds often displayed in museums. As I am strolling, the door on the western wall of the room opens and a man enters holding a sickly quail in his hand. Its feathers are very dark like a partridge and it has a light brown color. It is as long as a quail but its width is no more than a robin. It looks sickly and weak because of hunger. As the man hands the quail over to me he says, “This is your quail which was lost a few days ago. Please take it.” I feel that the quail does belong to us, someone in our family or the Jamaat. In any case, it is ours. I take the quail from him and hand it over to Umme Mateen, asking her to feed it. It was probably weak because of hunger and may be salvaged. Because of concern that it may die if given too much food all of a sudden, I tell her, “Be careful and give only a small amount at first. As it gets stronger give it bigger portions gradually.” II began to stroll again and she placed the quail next to the wet mud so it may eat as it needed. The quail dipped its beak in the mud taking just one morsel and lost consciousness, falling to the edge of the mud. I told Umme Mateen, “Didn’t I tell you to feed it carefully? See, it couldn’t tolerate the food because it was so weak and now it’s dead.” She replied, “I didn’t feed it much. I had just set it in the mud so it could eat whatever it needed.” Presently the quail came to and stood up. It appeared that as soon as food entered its stomach, it went into shock. As it digested the food it was revived, became strong and stood up. Upon standing it seemed a bit larger than before.

By B.K. Ahmad, Detroit, Michigan

I continued to stroll back and forth and the quail walked over to the other end of the table. My back was turned and Umme Mateen called out that it was coming towards me. I turned around and noticed that it wanted to fly towards me but it did not fly like a bird with wings spread out and legs tucked under. It attempted to fly looking like a horse standing on its hind legs pointing its front hoofs forward, but could not reach me. It was too weak and began to fall. I put my hand in front of it and it landed on my thumb as a falcon perches on its master’s hand. I reached the far wall, turned around and returned closer to the table. There it left me and went back to the table to eat some more. It began to look bigger still. As I strolled back towards the wall, it flew towards me again. Umme Mateen called out and I stuck out my thumb. This time it had no difficulty. I had offered my thumb to it as a hunter handles a hawk or falcon and it perched on my hand. When I returned from the far wall, it flew back to the table. This happened three or four times. When it flew towards me the last time it appeared to fall towards the ground but I was able to catch it on my thumb, thereby preventing its fall. When I returned from the wall again it flew back towards the table but I saw that it was going down. I called out to Umme Mateen to put it down on the table. It was looking really tired and collapsed to the ground near her. At that time I noticed that the quail had turned into a man. He appeared frail with a short stature like a dwarf. He was wearing a small loin cloth and looked very weak. That’s when I woke up. IIt was revealed in the dream that the Japanese nation is in a moribund state at this time. Almighty Allah will make their hearts incline towards Ahmadiyyat. It will gradually gain strength and vigor. It will then respond to my call just as birds had responded to Hadhrat Ibrahim’sas clarion call.” (Al-Fazl, Oct 19, 1945, pages 1-2)
