Friday Sermon The Jumu'ah (Friday) prayer is one form of congregational worship in Islam. It takes place every Friday. Regular attendance at the Jumu'ah prayer is enjoined on the believer. According to a Saying of Hazrat Muhammadsaw this congregational prayer is twenty-five times more blessed than worship performed alone. We encourage members to read Huzur’s (atba) Friday sermons which can be found at: http://www.alislam.org/archives/ For your benefit we have published below, a summary of Huzur’s (atba) recent Friday Sermons.

Honour of the Holy Prophet’s (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) and blasphemy law 21st January 2011

Summary

 Hudhur (aba) said currently a hotly debated topic in the press and the electronic media is that of the blasphemy law of Pakistan  A true Muslim can lay his/her life down, can see his/her children murdered and his/her property looted but cannot listen to disrespect towards his/her master, the Holy Prophet (pbuh)  Hudhur (aba) warned that anyone who made the slightest of effort against the honour and respect of his master, the Holy Prophet (pbuh) would come under the chastisement of Allah  In the current age, the Promised Messiah (on whom be peace) understood this status more than any other and explained it to us  The truthfulness and sincerity of a true believer to the Holy Prophet (pbuh) can only be expressed if Durud is invoked while trying to follow the blessed model of the Holy Prophet (pbuh)  If Muslims wish to express their endorsement for the honour of the Prophet (pbuh) they should search for taqwa as taught by the Holy Prophet (pbuh)  Love for the Prophet (pbuh) is not to be expressed through empty slogans. God wants practice  If anti-blasphemy laws are made to gain ulterior motives then that is blasphemous in itself

God’s love for the Holy Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be on him) 28th January 2011

Summary

 Hudhur (aba) quoted a Hadith e Qudsi in which God states regarding the Holy Prophet (pbuh): ‘If I had not created you I would not have created the world.’ to emphasise the exalted status of the Holy Prophet (pbuh)  By attaining extreme closeness to God, he was given the station for the salvation of people and intercession on their behalf and given the title of ‘Mercy of all the worlds’ and God declared love for him is love for God  His task was to give the message of God to people and The Holy Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be on him) took this message to everyone with love, compassion, patience and prayers  As other Prophets were derided and so was he, even today he is mocked; According to Divine promise, chastisement of his enemies in every age will become a sign  Allah will punish wrongdoers while God enjoins steadfastness to believers  If the enemy does not fear God’s warnings, as He manifests His Power at times to reform people, then God definitely punishes, but only Allah has control over this matter

4 ‘Khaira Ummah’ (best people) 4th February 2011

Summary

 Hudhur gave a discourse on ‘Khaira Ummah’ (best people) and the standard set by the Holy Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be on him)  Prior to enjoining others to good, we have to bring ourselves in line with those who ‘believe in Allah’  Once we have associated ourselves with the Imam of the age to try and become ‘Khaira Ummah’, we have to relinquish worldliness and give up self-created standards of piety  Hudhur (aba) gave a deep and detailed explanation of a hadith relating the signs of a hypocrite  Hudhur announced that he would lead funeral Prayer in absentia of Rasheed Ahmadi Butt sahib of Lahore who passed away on 18 October 2010 at the age of 71 years. He had been injured with a gun shot wound to his leg at Darul Zikr on 28 May 2010

History of Islam Ahmadiyyat in Indonesia and recent martyrdoms 11th February 2011

Summary

 A few days ago three Indonesian Ahmadis were martyred in a brutal and barbaric attack which has saddened every Ahmadi  Through the ages followers of each Prophet of God always displayed courage of belief when Pharaoh-like people made them choose between giving up their belief and losing their life  In Indonesia attackers entered the mission house armed with knives, machetes and sticks while the police looked on, they martyred three Ahmadis whereas five were injured. The attack was most brutal and reminiscent of the barbarity of the pagans of the dark ages  After each martyrdom we should pledge that not only will we not allow our belief to be wasted by the persecution, rather we will enhance it and will not take any such action which may discredit our traditions and our patience

Alayhe Salam - Peace be on him, used for Prophets of God ayyadah Allah tala beNasray hil-Aziz, may Allah assist him. A prayer recited with Khalifat al-Masih’s official title.

(By Syed Tariq Ahmad, Qaid Majlis Bait-ul Huda) After the New Year break, Majlis Baitul Huda held their monthly meeting for January towards the end of the month, to allow khuddam to join after their holidays. The meeting took place on Friday, the 28th of January at Brother Murad Khan’s residence, who was very kind to offer his place to conduct the meeting. The attendance in this meeting was 21 Khuddam and the focus was on prayers and tabligh. The tabligh pamphlets that were produced by the Jamaat were given out to each Khadim, so that they could get familiar with it and distribute it to their non-Ahmadi friends to spread the true message of Islam. After the meeting, Maghrib and Isha prayers were offered in congregation and refreshments were served for everyone. Following this, Khuddam made their way to Emerton Leisure Centre to play indoor soccer. This was a great physical work-out for the Khuddam and a very keenly contested 7-a-side match was played. The Majlis will plan to make this a regular event or alternatively start outdoor soccer training to get the Khuddam fit and ready for the Sydney and National Ijtemas coming up later in the year.

Khalid Saifullah and Mirza Sharif from Ahmadiyya Muslim Association of Australia at the Marsden Park mosque. Picture: DAVID MARSHALL MUSLIMS will celebrate Australia Day at Ahmadiyya’s Baitul-Huda Marsden Park mosque on Sunday, January 30. They will also join the rest of the nation on Wednesday, January 26 to celebrate the event.

Ahmadiyya Muslim Association of Australia is opening its Marsden Park mosque doors to the public for its festivities. The event has been a regular part of their calendar since 2007 and is an opportunity for people who have never seen a mosque up close. Association external affairs secretary Mirza Ramzan Sharif said it was a way of strengthening their members and reaching out to the broader community. ``It is tradition of the Holy Prophet that a love of a nation (country) is part of faith,’’ he said. ``By celebrating we instill the love further, particularly in our younger generation. There will be collective prayers where we will all pray in our own way, especially for all the people (affected) by the Queensland floods.’‘ Mr Sharif said the association frowned upon the burning of the Koran and said they had no place for Muslims with extremist views.


8 ``We don’t associate with persons like that and really try to focus on the positive.’‘

National vice president Khalid Saifullah said their motto was ``love for all hatred for none’‘. ``We are a group of Muslims who come from places like Fiji, India, Indonesia, Bangladesh and Pakistan,’’ he said.

The association’s headquarters is at 20 Hollinsworth Rd Marsden Park. The event will run from 2pm to 4pm on Sunday, January 30.

Dr Abdus Salam, His faith and His science

By Zakaria Virk Dr Abdus Salam was a deeply religious man despite the fact that he was a towering scientist of the 20th century. He was a devout Muslim in his personal life. He was brought up by a profoundly religious father; hence his father's personality was imprinted on him. His family had a rich tradition of scholarship, learning and piety. As was the custom, he learned the reading of Holy Quran from his mother. He was well versed in Arabic. His father used to recite verses and narrations in the Holy Quran to him. It was from his father he developed his love for Islam. From his childhood he offered five daily prayers. In the pocket of his jacket he used to carry of a small copy of the Holy Quran. At his home in Putney, while he was engrossed in his research, he used to listen to taped recitation of Holy Quran by outstanding Qarees of the Muslim world. He performed lesser pilgrimage, Umra when he was not internationally renowned. Despite his wish to perform Hajj, he could not do so on account of his religious beliefs. The Saudi Government would not grant him a visa. When Ahmadis were declared non-Muslims in 1974 by Government of Pakistan, he grew beard and assumed the forename Muhammad to show his pride in being a Muslim. He used to lead the Friday congregational prayer for Muslim students at the International Centre for Theoretical Physics in Italy. When his father was staying with him in London, he had the opportunity to buy a house in a posh London suburb, but instead, he chose to buy a house in Putney, because it was close to FAZAL Mosque, where his father could easily go for daily prayers. On Fridays Dr. Salam used to arrive at the mosque early and would take a seat in the front row. Even during the summer, he would don a winter jacket and a hat. When the Imam was delivering sermon, he would take out a notebook and start making notes. One day Imam Rafiq asked him: Do you like my sermon so much that you take notes? Dr Salam replied, the fact of the matter is that I get flashes of scientific ideas like an electric current, so I jot them down right away. These ideas subsequently become basis for my theories. If I don't write them instantly, chances are I will lose them.
