Brief document on how the moon declines towards the end of the lunar month, with photos.


While we Muslims still insist on sighting the new moon by eye to determine if the new moon has appeared, a NASA spacecraft will reach near the planet Jupiter on 4th July. Please see this link.

Jupiter is at present 2000 times further from us than the moon, and man is able to send a spacecraft there with reamrkable accuracy! But we say we need to see the moon by eye.

It is Time for the Mujaddid of the Century. Says Tarif Khalidi.

Submitted by Rashid Jahangiri.


Tarif Khalidi is professor and Islamic scholar at American University of Beirut, Lebanon. Few days ago he gave a speech, in The Near East School of Theology in Beirut.

According to columnist Robert Fisk, of Independent newspaper, UK:

“The speaker was Dr Tarif Khalidi, one of Islam’s foremost scholars and translator of the latest English-language edition of the Koran, whose earlier works on Jesus in Muslim stories match his most recent anthology of Arab literature. The title of his address was an almost frightening world-beater: Does Islam need a Martin Luther?”

“Every 100 years in Islamic history, Khalidi observed, a renewer of faith – a mujaddid – would arise to breathe new life into the religion.”

The magnums scale at which Islam is distorted by Muslims and maligned by its opponents, to fix this problem is only the job and in power of Divine appointee i.e. Mujaddid.  Although Lahore Ahmadiyya Movement is boldly taking this challenge, I think it is punching above its weight. This problem will only be solved by a Mujaddid. With Mamur-min-Allah (Divine appointee) Malaika (angels) come that work like unknown and unseen hands to make work of Divine appointee easier. I pray may Allah SWT send his Divine appointee sooner than later. Ameen.

Pharaoh and Z.A. Bhutto

"And Pharaoh said: Chiefs, I know no god for you besides myself; so kindle a fire for me, Hāmān, on (bricks of) clay, then prepare for me a lofty building, so that I may obtain knowledge of the God of Moses, and surely I think him a liar." (The Quran, 28:38)

Pharaoh = Z.A. Bhutto.
Chiefs = His ministers
"I know no god for you besides myself" — expresses accurately what he thought about himself.
Hāmān = Yahya Bakhtiar
lofty building = Pakistan National Assembly
Moses = Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad
God of Moses = His beliefs

"And he was unjustly proud in the land, he and his armies, and they thought that they would not be brought back to Us. So We caught hold of him and his armies, then We cast them into the sea, and see what was the end of the wrongdoers." (28:39-40)

Orlando killings

The Quran tells Muslims: "O you who believe, take care of your (own) souls — he who goes astray cannot harm you when you are on the right way." (5:105)

Islam does not order, allow, support, encourage or condone killings by a Muslim such as the mass killing in Orlando. It tells Muslims to think about their own morality instead of attacking others for their conduct. The act committed in Orlando is nothing other than an unjustified and brutal act of mass murder.

I extend my sympathies to the many who are suffering as a result of this outrage. They are human beings, just like any Muslim.

Panama Leaks and the Qadiani Jamaat

Our friend SH DXB has submitted the following post. As this is all in the public domain, there cannot be any objection in publishing it, although it gives us no joy in doing so.


https://www.geo.tv/latest/105509-List-of-more-Pakistanis-named-in-Panama-Papers-released

(Note: The above link now leads to Geo TV's home page. A cached copy of the original page is available at this link.)

Please see the list towards the end to find out the name of present Qadiani Khalifa:

  • Summit Properties : 20/12/94 – Lahore
  • Nusrath Investments : 16/12/94 – Lahore
  • Al Hamd Holdings : 23/5/2000 – Lahore
  • Qadir Enterprises : 22/5/2000 – Lahore

See this link also which is from a different site:

https://www.geo.tv/assets/docs/list-jang.html

See the 3rd name from last of the 1st list.

Dear brothers in Qadiani Jamaat: Do continue to pay chanda in different forms to help the family trust called Ahmadiyya Jamaat!

And read below the words of the Promised Messiah (AS):

"I did not tell this, but after my Lord told me that my relatives will once again return to corruption and they will increase in evil deeds and adamancy, and on that day, the Lord of the servants will proclaim His decision what is decreed to them. And nobody will be able to prevent that. And I am seeing that they have inclined to their previous wrong doings and their heart has become hard like the character of illiterate people. They ignored the day of the fear of God and they increased in falsehood and exaggeration. And Allah will send down His decree when He sees that they increased in their exaggeration and Allah is not such a one who gives punishment when they are the ones who fear him." (Anjam-e Atham, RK 11, p. 223,224, published January 1897)

Mehmudies are Revolting and Grip of Qadiani Khalifa 5 Mirza Masroor Ahmad is Loosening

Submitted by Rashid Jahangiri.


In 1974 Pakistani anti-HMGA Muslims were successful in getting 2nd amendment to Pakistan’s 1973 Constitution. Although on the surface they were successful in creating hindrance in mission of HMGA, but unknown to them their action created environment for spread and correction of its mission in minds of those who were on the wrong path. In aftermath of this amendment Lahore Ahmadiyya Movements members were forced to realize that HMGA teachings are needed outside the geographical boundaries of Pakistan. As a result more books of HMGA and literature of LAM got translated into European languages. And with the advent of internet, its computer servers and websites are placed and hosted outside Pakistan. Similarly, Mehmudies (those Qadianis who believe QK2 Mirza Mehmud Ahmad was Musleh Mahud) were forced to emigrate to Western Europe, Australia, New Zealand, Japan, Canada and USA. This is giving Mehmudies chance to correct their wrong beliefs and providing them space to revolt against their Qadiani Khalifas 2-5 teachings and policies. Interesting thing is that QK5 Mirza Masroor Ahmad knows this, but he is not in a position to tighten his grip. Recent Panama Leaks has further eroded whatever moral authority he had.  Here are two such examples:

I know a Qadiani Jamaat member who is physician. He is known for opening Aftar (breaking fast in Ramadan) with Muslim friends but then not offering Mughrib prayers. Three weeks ago a common Muslim friend’s son died in accident. There was Janaza (funeral prayer) in town mosque. Before Janazah there was Asar prayer. This Qadiani physician first offered Asar prayer with common Muslims behind non-Ahmadi imam, and then offered Janazah of common Muslim behind non-Ahmadi imam. Please note there were at least 300 Muslim in mosque.

Today a colleague of mine, psychiatrist by profession, his paternal aunty (cha chi) is sister of QK 4 Mirza Tahir Ahmad, told me that Qadianis are NOT reporting their true income to Qadiani authorities for purpose of compulsory and non-compulsory Chanda (financial) collections. Qadiani authorities have started demanding W-2 form (it is official form issued by employer that reports total income and federal and state taxes etc withheld). So Qadianis have refused to provide this document to Qadiani Jamaat goons who come to collect Chanda. Instead they are told to get lost and get out of their homes.

One thing is becoming clear by the day, that Qadiani Khalifas are losing their hold on his followers and followers are questioning their Khalifa policies and beliefs.

Hadith about khilafat after despotic kings

Submitted by Omar Raja.


Regarding the hadith: "Prophethood will remain among you as long as Allah wills. Then Caliphate (Khilafah) on the lines of Prophethood shall commence, and remain as long as Allah wills. Then corrupt/erosive monarchy would take place, and it will remain as long as Allah wills. After that, despotic kingship would emerge, and it will remain as long as Allah wills. Then, the Caliphate (Khilafah) shall come once again based on the precept of Prophethood (Masnad Ahmad ibn Hanbal, Mishkat, Chapter Al-Anzar Wal Tahzir)

This hadith cannot be interpreted to mean a new khilafat will be established after the Promised Messiah because the Promised Messiah himself did not even interpret it as such! Furthermore, a divinely-ordained institution of everlasting khilafat after the Holy Prophet already existed and continues to exist with the coming of mujaddids whom are in fact the spiritual khalifas of the Holy Prophet Muhammad, to include the Promised Messiah as he himself explained and claimed to be, stating mujaddids are in fact "deputies and spiritual successors (khalifas) of the Messenger of Allah" and come "by way of zill." (Fath Islam, 22 January 1891, p. 6 footnote).

The hadith in question can only mean the early days of Islam and the last days are similar in terms of an abundance of blessings for the progress of Islam. The Promised Messiah explained, "it is proven from the Hadith that there are three ages: first, the period of the righteous khilafat, then the "age of corruption" in which there were to be tyrannical kings, and after that the last days which would be on the pattern of the times of prophethood. The Holy Prophet has gone so far as to say that the early days of his followers and the last days would be very similar, and that these two ages are like the rain: it is full of such good and blessings that one knows not whether the blessings lie more in the beginning or in the end. (Shahadatul-Quran pp. 45-46).
