Happy New Year … (as ‘celebrated’ by Hadhrat Khalifa-tul-Masih IV.)

It is reported that Hadhrat Khalifa-tul-Masih IV. – before he was elected Khalifa – during his stay in London was in town during the New Year’s Eve celebrations. When it was time for the New Year he took a Newspaper and put it on the floor and performed some ‘Nawafil’ prayers (voluntary prayers). When he finished he saw one English man in tears watching him. He asked him what was the matter and the Englishman replied: “The whole world is getting drunk and you are the only one that remembers God at this time”.

(My apologies: I do not have the exact quotation with me but am telling this story as it was told to me verbally. If I made any errors: corrections welcome).

    Extremist Muslim or Conservative Muslim do not allow Christians to celebrate “New Year’s Eve parties”.They still follow the ancient tradition, or cultures,–

    Whereas Allah and prophet Muhammad( pbuh) commanded to protect the right of religious Minorities as Allah says in Bible and Al Quran;

    Proverb 31:8. Speak up for people who can not speak for themselves. Protect the rights of all who are helpless.speak for them and be a righteous judge.protect the right of the poor and needy.

    Psalm 103 ;6.
    God judges favor of the oppressed and gives them their rights.He revealed His plans to Moses and let the people of Israel see His mighty deeds. God is merciful and loving.

    QS 4:75. And why should ye not fight in the cause of Allah and of those who, being weak, are ill-treated (and oppressed)? Men, women, and children, whose cry is: “Our Lord! rescue us from this town, whose people are oppressors; and raise for us from thee one who will protect; and raise for us from thee one who will help.

    So no wonder if Allah has been cursing Hamas, Taliban, al Qaida, Isis, etc for decades who do not protect the right of religious minority.

    Allah will bless government who protect the right of religious minorities to worship and celebrate his new years.

    Was Salam
    With love
