Annual Muslim Convention Concludes With Address By World Leader

Hadhrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad says defending honour of Holy Prophet Muhammad a lifelong task for all true Muslims

The 121st Annual Convention (Jalsa Salana) of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Jamaat in India concluded yesterday in Qadian with a powerful and faithinspiring address by the Fifth Khalifa, the Worldwide Head of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Jamaat, Hadhrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad. The Khalifa addressed the event via satellite from the Baitul Futuh Mosque in London. The Jalsa attracted over 18,000 people from around the world in Qadian, whilst more than 4,000 gathered in London for the concluding session. During his hourlong address, Hadhrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad spoke in detail about defending the honour of the Holy Prophet Muhammad in a sincere and proper manner. Commenting upon news that certain socalled religious scholars in Pakistan had declared 2013 as the ‘Year of Defending the Honour of the Holy Prophet Muhammad’, His Holiness said it was strange to designate just one year towards this noble task. The truth was such scholars were not sincere in their love for the Holy Prophet but were motivated by greed and power alone. Hadhrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad said:

“The socalled clerics and their followers desire only to fulfil their own vested interests and to satisfy their egos. In the name of religion they are taking the blood of innocent and vulnerable people. How unjust it is that they commit such heinous acts in the name of that Prophet who was sent as a source of mercy and compassion for the entire world.”

The Khalifa unequivocally stated that all attacks on innocent people were to be condemned and had nothing to do with the true teachings of Islam. He said that those who usurped the rights of nonMuslims or acted in an oppressive fashion were violating the fundamental teachings of Islam. The Khalifa warned that such people were inviting the Wrath of God upon themselves. Furthermore, Hadhrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad counselled that God’s Pleasure was not attained through terrorism, extremism or injustice but by following the true and peaceful teachings of Islam. The Khalifa said the Founder of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Jamaat, Hadhrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad of Qadian, the Promised Messiah, was the greatest servant of the Holy Prophet Muhammad. His Holiness said the Promised Messiah had with unparalleled depth and clarity illustrated the true status of the Holy Prophet as a universal and perfect Prophet of God. It was because of his teachings that Ahmadi Muslims were able to propagate true Islam throughout the world. Hadhrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad said:

“In villages, towns and cities across the world it is only Ahmadi Muslims who are refuting the allegations levelled against Islam and its Prophet in a way that compels nonMuslims to admit they were wrong to fear Islam. Indeed on my various tours I find that all doubts and suspicions are being removed.”

Hadhrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad concluded his address with an emotional call to Ahmadi Muslims worldwide. His Holiness said: “Oh followers of the Messiah of Muhammad, light up the final night of 2012 with your love and loyalty to the Holy Prophet Muhammad. Do not limit this spirit to a single year but keep this light burning every day, of every year, until either you breathe your last, or until that day when the entire world comes under the banner of the Holy Prophet.” His Holiness continued:

“Every Ahmadi Muslim should see out this year and welcome the New Year with such sincere prayers and worship that the Heavens are shaken. Submit your melted hearts before Allah so that the entire world comes to embrace the loving and peaceful message of the Holy Prophet Muhammad.”
