‘How to remain responsible Ahmadis’
The Worldwide Head of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community, Hazrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad, Khalifatul Masih V, has enjoined all Ahmadis to care about saving the world from falling into the pit of fire.
Huzoor stated this during the 53rd Jalsa Salana (Annual Convention) of the group. Noting that, the purpose of this Jalsa is to develop the spiritual, moral and educational conditions of Ahmadis.
While referring to the Quranic verses recited during the programme, Huzoor noted that Allah has declared that the world is a mere pastime and sport. “Can an intelligent man spend his whole life in leisure and games? In worldly terms, this is not possible and if one does this, then their lives will ultimately result in ruin”.
Huzoor advised Muslim men should fulfill their obligatory responsibility as enjoined by Allah.
“Some ladies write to me and inform him regarding their spouses who sit around, idly watching T.V depending on social income for financial sport. With no genuine explanation behind this causing restlessness and discord within their homes”.
Addressing the audience further, He warned women against extravagancy. “If really you do demands from your spouse extravagantly, you should know that this is not how an Ahmadi woman should behave. An Ahmadi woman should work towards fulfill the rights of God rather than striving for worldly things.
“After we pass on to the next abode, Allah will not question us on how much wealth we left behind or the number of children we brought up. He will only ask us about our good actions, how we fulfilled His rights.
Huzoor reiterated that Islamic teachings are not just for only women, but for all believers, including men.
“During the time of the Holy Prophet, peace and blessings of Allah be upon him, the excuses of men about their wives were of such a nature that they would say, “My wife spends her whole time in worship and overlooks my needs.” And if women ever complained, they would inform the Holy Prophet that they did not take care of their own beauty as their husbands spent their time in worship alone. The Holy Prophet (s.a.w), would advise men and women to fulfill the rights of their spouses along with worship.
“The female companions would beautify themselves not for fashion or to show the world, rather they did so to create a pure atmosphere within their household”.
He presented awards to more than 115 Ahmadi women for the accomplishment of academic excellence across various fields of education, including UK and achievers from other parts.
