Head of Ahmadiyya Muslim Community – “Islam’s reality will dawn upon the world”‏  

In Head of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community,

Hazrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad addresses non-Ahmadi guests and members of Lajna Imaillah on day 2 of Jalsa Salana Germany.

On Saturday 6 June 2015, the World Head of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community, the Fifth Khalifa, His Holiness, Hazrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad addressed an audience of more than 1,000 non-Ahmadi guests on the second day of the 40th Annual Convention (Jalsa Salana) of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community in Germany. His Holiness quoted extensively from the Holy Quran to disprove allegations that Islam advocates extremism or violence of any kind.Hazrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad began his address by stating that the efforts of the Founder of Islam, the Holy Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) towards establishing peace in the world were “incomparable”.

Hazrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad said:

“Through his enlightened teachings the Holy Prophet of Islam (peace be upon him) has handed us the golden keys to peace… He said that for true peace to be established mankind had to recognise its Creator.”

Hazrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad said that in this era the Founder of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community, His Holiness, Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad of Qadian (peace be upon him) was sent by Allah the Almighty to revive the true and peaceful teachings of Islam.

Hazrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad said:

“During his life the Promised Messiah (peace be upon him) shone an illuminating light upon true Islam and presented its magnificent teachings to the world. He proved that the Holy Prophet (peace be upon him) was indeed the greatest champion and torch-bearer for peace in the history of mankind.”

The Khalifa said that those who sought to defame and discredit Islam had taken the wars fought during early Islam completely out of context.

Explaining the true context of such wars, Hazrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad said:

“Permission for (defensive) war was given to the early Muslims in chapter 22, verse 40 of the Holy Quran where Allah said He was granting permission because war had been forced upon the Muslims, and so they had been left with no choice but to respond and to defend themselves.”

Hazrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad continued:

“Permission (for defensive war) was granted to stop those who wished to seize the basic rights and liberties of all people. Permission was granted to stop those who sought to destroy the very foundation of religious freedom. And permission was granted not only to defend Islam but to defend all religions and all forms of belief.”

Concluding, Hazrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad said

“Today, according to the promises of God Almighty, it is the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community alone that is enlightening the world with the true teachings of Islam.”

Hazrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad said:

“Whilst today Islam continues to be portrayed in entirely the wrong way, we Ahmadi Muslims do not become hopeless or disheartened. We firmly believe that we will be successful and so one day Islam’s reality will dawn upon the world and its beautiful teachings will be understood by the people of all nations.”

Earlier in the day, His Holiness, Hazrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad directly addressed the members of the Lajna Imaillah (Ladies Auxiliary Organisation) in which he spoke of the importance of obedience to the Holy Quran and to the Holy Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him).

His Holiness said that whilst it is alleged Islam’s teachings restrict women and limit their freedom, the truth was that Islam had established the rights of women and given them true freedom. His Holiness said that within the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community, women organised their own events and appreciated this independence.
