  1. Peace and mercy of Allah be on you….Matrimonial matters of young men and women, and latter family matters are such issues, which cause distress and unrest in homes from time to time…..

    Post-marriage, family problems do not cause troubles only for husband and wife, but they cause anguish to parents of both sides. Not only this, if children are born, these problems make suffering for them too and sometimes they go astray in worldly life and religion-wise too. It causes series of troubles for parents and larger family.

  3. Wisdom, Advice, Patience & Promised Reforms Destined to Win over Ignorance, Extremism & Terrorism
    “….When you debate with someone, debate with wisdom and virtuous advices, which should be with softness and politeness. Yes, it is true that many ignorant and unwise clergy of this era, due to their foolishness, have very idea that to spread religion with Jihad and sword is thing of very much reward. And they live life behind cover and hypocrisy. But they are very wrong to have this thought. At their wrong understanding, blame cannot be at Divine Book. In fact, truths and realities are never dependent of any compulsion, rather compulsion proves that spiritual arguments are weak…..” MORE @

  4. Ramadan: Eman, Self Accountability and Taqwa….Peace and mercy of Allah be on you.

    Translation: O ye who believe! Fasting is prescribed for you, as it was prescribed for those before you, so that you may become righteous. (Holy Quran ch2:v184)

    Alhamdolillah we are being privileged to pass through another Ramadan. Holy Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be on him) said on an occasion that if people knew the excellence of Ramadan then my Ummah had desired that Ramadan to remain for whole year. At this, a person pleaded, O Prophet of Allah what are excellences of Ramadan. He (s.a.w.) said, surely Jannat is decorated from the beginning to end of year for Ramadan.

Hazrat Khalifatul Messiah V (may Allah be his Helper) said that these days western media and press ask question that you talk about teaching of peace and security of Islam but majority of Muslims do not say so, and do not consider you Muslim too, and the number of Ahmadis is quite less compared to other Muslims.

  9. Gatherings: How to get Benefits from Pious Meetings -Special Prayers of Holy Prophet (sa) = Peace and mercy of Allah be on you……There are many kinds of gatherings in the world with various aims. Some gatherings are for counseling about worldly purposes such as to run government, for politics, business, sports or leisure and about so-called knowledge. Committees are made for these, people sit and mutually think. All these gathering, committees and mutual sittings are for worldly works. These gatherings are not for the sake of God the Exalted, His pleasure and nearness. Even if any gathering is convened for the goodness of people and matters are considered, it too is for worldly aims.Pleasure of God the Exalted is not sought in it…..MORE at

  10. Most Islamic Clerics seperate between the worldly work and the work for the sake of God. Most Islamic clerics command Muslims to seek the work for the sake of Allah and forget the worldly work. The result of this thought is Poverty in almost Islamic countries. Most Islamic clerics include Ahmadiyyah mislead Muslims.

    Whereas the worldly work is also for work the sake of Allah. There is no difference.

    I urge Muslims Around the world and Ahmadiyyah Muslims : seek paradise hereafter, but do not forsake the worldly paradise. Muslims have to seek 2 paradise.

    • My dear Somi: Ahmadiyya Imams always teach to seek paradise in this world and the next. I do not know what Khutbas you listen to. Try to listen to the Khutbas of our beloved Khalifa at and you will see for yourself.

  11. Promised Restoration of Real Salaat (Prayer) === ” …Offer Salaat-s with proper regularity. Some people offer Salaat of only one time, they should remember Salaat-s are not exempt, even not exempted for messengers. It is in a Hadith that a new group visited Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be on him) and they sought exemption of Salaat. He (sa) said, the religion which does not have practice, that religion is nothing.”……… “The real Salaat is of what kind, and how it should be offered, Hazrat Promised Messiah (as) explains:
    Remember, this Salaat is such a thing that, by it, worldly life becomes good and Deen (religion) too……..” ……..” Salaat is that thing, that by offering it, human is saved from every kind of bad-deeds and indecencies.”

  13. Wisdom, reality, and spirit of virtues === Peace and mercy of Allah be on you…..Allah the Exalted tells believers, your goal should always be ‘fasatabequl khairat’ i.e. you should always make effort to move ahead of each other in virtues. Allah the Exalted pronounced that doers of virtuous deeds as best creature, as said, ‘innallazina aamanu wa amelussalehate olaeka humul khairul bariyya’ i.e, surely the people who believed and did virtuous deeds these are the best creature.
    Hazrat Promised Messiah (on whom be peace) explains about this verse that human should fulfill his obligation, and make progress in virtuous deeds.
    So doing and progressing in virtuous deeds make a momin a real momin. We should always make effort for it. …..

  14. In reality on the ground, most Muslims live in poverty, their life depand on others from melitary, economy, science peace etc. There is something wrong with Islamic teaching today. We have to investigate Islamic teaching before blame others.
    Ahmadiyyah was born more 100 years ago. Millions Ahmadiyyah Muslim cannot produce one product that can use milion people around the world. If you have, show me !
    Also we cannot see in Malls a product “MADE IN SAUDI ARABIA”
    It means most Islamic teaching around the world teach people about HALAL ( lawful thing ) AND HARAM ( unlawful thing). — Very sad

  15. My big hope to Ahmadiyyah is to urge Muslims to do enterprice as Prophet did instead of employee.
    A Employer is much better than an employee. I want to see in my life, Ahmadiyyah Muslim can follow Job Steve who create million job from his invention ( iphone ).

  16. @ Somi Tempo …Ahmadiyya-Muslims follow real Islam, taught by promised messiah mahdi and his khilfat…. first teaching of true religion is to bring human close to God and live peacefully with fellow human….then comes inventions and science etc…..perhaps u do not know first ever muslim scientist who was ahmadi-muslim @

    • — bring people closer to God is not by praying and zikir many times but by doing enterpricing as Prophet did.

      Most Christian and others follow our prophet, in contrary,most Muslims do not. It seems to me thats wierd/ odd.
      We claim that we a good follower of our prophet, but actualy NOT. It is a deception, right? How many percent of Ahmadiyyah Muslim follow prophet doing enterprice ?

    • @ promoseoeace—…Ahmadiyya-Muslims follow real Islam, taught by promised messiah mahdi and his khilfat….

      If ahmadiyyah is real Islam, do you mind if I criticize Ahmadiyyah faith here?
      I found something wrong with Ahmadiyyah. Can I tell it here?

      • Whenever you ‘found something wrong’ I actually found that you are not understanding things properly. We explain again and again and you follow the same old path without, it seems, even trying to understand the explanations. You need to pray for open heart and guidance.

  17. New year (84 th) of Tehrik e Jadid – Modern day distinctive events – Baitul Futuh project ==== Peace and mercy of Allah be on you.
    Translation (ch3:v93) “Never shall you attain to righteousness unless you spend out of that which you love; and whatever you spend, Allah surely knows it well.”
    In this verse, Allah the Exalted has mentioned that subject, which is always understood well, only by those believers who offer sacrifices in the way of Allah the Exalted. The companions of Holy Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be on him) manifested it most as they sacrificed their wealth, life and time for Deen. ….

  18. Essentiality of Justice and Equity and its Revival in this Era ==== Peace and mercy of Allah be on you….Translations of three verses from Holy Quran :
    (ch4:v136) O ye who believe! be strict in observing justice, (and be) witnesses for Allah, even though it be against yourselves or (against) parents and kindred. Whether he be rich or poor, Allah is more regardful of them both (than you are). Therefore follow not low desires so that you may (be able to) act equitably. And if you conceal (the truth) or evade (it), then (remember that) Allah is well aware of what you do.
    (5:9) O ye who believe! be steadfast in the cause of Allah, bearing witness in equity; and let not a people’s enmity incite you to act otherwise than with justice. Be (always) just, that is nearer to righteousness. And fear Allah. Surely, Allah is aware of what you do.
    (7:182) And of those We have created there are a people that guide (people) with truth and do justice therewith.

  19. Promised Bringing of Faith Back from the Pleiades – Renaissance, and Perfection of Publication of Truth ==== Peace and mercy of Allah be on you. … Hazrat Promised Messiah (on whom be peace) said in his one couplet:
    “waqt thaa waqte masihaa, na kisi aur ka waqt – main na aaya hota to koee aur hi aaya hota”
    Translation: “The time was, time of coming of Messiah, not of anyone else’s time – had I not come, someone else would have come.” Details in

      I strongly believe that peace will not come if people live in poverty. People who hungry create violence and unjust.

      I urge the young Ahmadiyyah to concentrate not only the spirituality but also concentrate in strengthening economy of Muslim.
      How our prophet Muhammad pbuh EARNED money for living and became a the wealthy or richest namely by doing trade or enterprice like Mr Trump etc.

      If Ahmadiyyah has 5 people like Mr Trump, woow, I cant imagine it, ahmadiyyah do not need to collect money from the member of Ahmadiyyah every years. The 5 the richest Ahmadiyyah will create millions jobs for poor Ahmadiyyah around the world.
      I believe Ahmadiyyah will become a role model of Islam to the world. Woow. My dream?
      May Allah will make it happen Amin
      With love❤️

  20. Peace be on you…1=Blessings from God include physical and spiritual blessings as Allah taught in Holy Quran (2:202) “And of them there are some who say: ‘Our Lord, grant us good in this world as well as good in the world to come, and protect us from the torment of the Fire.’ “……2= Hazrat Promised Messiah (a.s.) was revealed by Allah: Translation: Thy God is well pleased with what thou hast done. He will bless thee greatly, so much so that Kings shall seek blessing from your garments…….4=Ahmadis are progressing in every area by the grace of Allah with the primary focus on connection with Allah, under khilafat……5=richness has to be under piousness otherwise it is no good….6=

  21. TRUTH AND METHOD TO KNOW TRUTH FROM GOD === Telling the method of knowing the truth, Hazrat Promised Messiah (on whom be peace) says: “If truth is to be known then one will pray to God the Exalted in his salaats and I am sure if human, by being pure of prejudice and stubbornness, pay attention to God the Exalted for the manifestation of truth, then one chilla (40 days of prayers) will not pass, truth will open at him.

    • @ promosedorace/-/Let me test you, if you do not mind

      Love your neighbor as you love your self, love your enemy and pray to those who persecute you، love foreigners who kive in your country as you love your self”

      Do you believe these sentences above is the truth? The truth must come from God.

      If you agree above is the truth from God, why God did not repeat to write in Al Quran?
      What is your respond?
      With ❤️

  22. Peace be on you…Holy Quran’s teaching is for all people times and situations:

Surely, Allah loves not the proud and the boastful,”

    ENEMIES (12:93)…Holy Prophet sa recited for bitterest enemies when they were at his mercy at fall of Makkah— (12:93) “He said, ‘No blame shall lie on you this day; may Allah forgive you! And He is the Most Merciful of those who show mercy.”

    FOR THOSE WHO CONTINUED TO DENY AND PERSECUTED–[43:89] “I swear by his repeated cry ‘O my Lord!’ that these are a people who will not believe…..[43:90] Therefore, turn aside from them, and say, ‘Peace’; and soon shall they know.”

    UNIQUE CALL FOR ALL HUMANITY — (7:159) “Say, ‘O mankind! truly I am a Messenger to you all from Allah to Whom belongs the kingdom of the heavens and the earth. There is no God but He. He gives life, and He causes death. So believe in Allah and His Messenger, the Prophet, the Immaculate one, who believes in Allah and His words; and follow him that you may be rightly guided.’ ”

  23. Excellent Role Model for Fully Successful Life – Promised Reminder
    For us, our prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be on him) established models to establish Tauheed, models of worships, high morals and rights of people. …….“Messenger of Allah, (peace and blessings of Allah be on him) became beloved-in-tears and intensively focused for a Being and then gained which is never given to anyone in the world. He had so much love for Allah the Exalted that common people would say ‘asheqa muhammadun alaa rabbeh’ i.e. Muhammad (s.a.w.) has become beloved to his Lord.”…..more in

  24. Right Way to Live == Peace and mercy of Allah be on you….Translation (Holy Quran ch3:v15) ‘Beautified for people, is the love of desired things — women and children, and stored-up heaps of gold and silver, and branded horses and cattle and crops. That is the provision of the worldly life; but it is Allah with Whom, is an excellent place of return.

    Hazrat Khalifatul Messiah (may Allah be his Helper) explained that, Allah the Exalted has drawn the scene or described this state of those who forget Him and the gain world becomes their only goal. When human forgets God the Exalted, Satan captures him. ……Though, all these things are created by God the Exalted and are among His bounties. Benefits should be drawn from these. Hazrat Promised Messiah (on whom be peace) clearly said that it is wrong too, to be separated from worldly affairs, marriages are essential and it is Sunnah, likewise there are other works, Sahabah too would do those. Some Sahabah possessed properties of tens of millions but they were not facing the world.

  25. Spiritual Stars for Guidance == Peace and blessings of Allah be on you..==
    (Holy Quran, translation, ch 9 : v 100) And the foremost-ones of the lead-takers from among the Emigrants and the Helpers, and those who followed them with excellent practice, Allah is well pleased with them and they are well pleased with Him; and He has prepared for them Gardens beneath which flow rivers. They will abide therein forever. That is the supreme triumph…..
    In this verse, the Sahabah (companions) of Holy Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be on him) are mentioned, who outshined, who are at top in spiritual rank, who surpassed practitioners-of-belief. These are the people who accepted before everyone. They left their examples as models to emulate for those who came after them… Allah the Exalted has mentioned them as imitate-able model for later-comers. He announced He is pleased with level of their Eman (belief) and their deeds. They too, made to seek pleasure of Allah the Exalted as purpose of their life. They remained among the thankful servants of Allah the Exalted…….
    Allah the Exalted says, those people who shall continue to follow these models with Eman (belief) sincerely and loyally, they shall continue to do good deeds and they shall continue to get rewards from Him.

  26. ” Hazrat Abu Bakr (r.a.) : Hazrat Promised Messiah (a.s.) wrote: Once when commandment was given to offer wealth in the path of truth, Hazrat Siddiq e Akbar (Abu Bakr Siddiq) brought all things of house. When Holy Prophet (s.a.w.) asked what was left in house, he (r.a.) replied, he has left God and Messenger in house. He was rich of Makkah but he wore poor person’s dress after being Muslim.
    About his humbleness: Once Hazrat Abu Bakr ra and Hazrat Umar ra had argued, voices rose. Later Hazrat Abu Bakr went to Hazrat Umar for regret but he did not accept. Hazrat Abu Bakr met Holy Prophet (s.a.w.) and mentioned the incidence, and requested for pardon. Holy Prophet (s.a.w.) said, may Allah the Exalted forgive…After sometime, Hazrat Umar too felt remorse for mistake and went to house of Hazrat Abu Bakr to say sorry but he was not at home. Then he went to Holy Prophet (s.a.w.). Seeing him, Holy Prophet (s.a.w.) face become reddish. When Hazrat Abu Bakr saw Holy Prophet was so much displeased with Hazrat Umar, he sat on knees, and requested, mistake was mine, please forgive Umar……Such was Hazrat Abu Bakr (r.a.)’s humbleness and fear of Allah the Exalted and Hazrat Umar (r.a.) came to seek forgiveness. Regret was from both sides.
    This was the pure society established by Holy Prophet (s.a.w.) and its habitants received pleasure of Allah the Exalted.
    Hazrat Umar (r.a.) : Humbleness : A person said to Hazrat Umar that you are better than Hazrat Abu Bakr. Hazrat Umar began to weep and said, By God! One night and one day of Abu Bakr is better than whole life of Umar and his progeny…Hazrat Umar explained, the night was the one when Hazrat Abu Bakr ra accompanied Holy Prophet (s.a.w.) during his migration. His day was that when Holy Prophet (s.a.w.) died and Arab denied Salaat and Zakaat, and Hazrat Abu Bakr did jihad, contrary to my advice, and Allah the Exalted proved he was at truth by giving him success……” more @

  27. Prayer, Duaa – reality, requirements, effects and aspects == ….”Basic and principle thing for acceptance of prayer: Hazrat Promised Messiah (on whom be peace) said :
    Unless bosom is clean, prayer is not accepted. If, for a worldly matter too, there is malice in your bosom for any person, your Dua cannot be accepted. This matter should be remembered well and malice should never be kept with anyone in worldly matter. And what is worth of world and its means that you do animosity with someone for it.”…..more @

  28. Continuity of Blessings of True Spending – Waqfe Jadid, 61 st Year Begins == Peace and mercy of Allah be on you….In Holy Quran, financial sacrifice is mentioned at many places. At a place, it is said, ‘..wa maa tunfequ min kherin fa-le-anfosekum..’ — ‘and whatever you spend from wealth, it is for your own benefit..’ . Along with it, sign of believer mentioned that they do such spending for the sake of pleasure of Allah the Exalted. ‘..wa ma tunfeqoon illabtegha-aa wajhillah’ ..and ‘you do not spend except for getting pleasure of Allah’.

    Hazrat Khalifatul messiah V (may Allah be his Helper) further explained: How fortunate are people who spend their wealth in the way of Allah the Exalted with this view… Today, by the favour of Allah the Exalted, there is none at the face of earth except the Ahmadi who thinks about financial sacrifice for the sake of pleasure of Allah the Exalted. Maybe some others do so, but as Jama’at, it is only Jama’at Ahmadiyya, which does financial sacrifice for pleasure of Allah; for helping needy and for propagating Deen – even with burden.

    Allah the Exalted does not need any wealth for His Being. To spend for His sake means, to spend for goodness of His creature, and for the superiority of His Deen….more @

  29. == Power of Attraction for Purification – Role Models == Peace and mercy of Allah be on you…..While mentioning ‘quwat e qudsi’ (power of attraction to purify) of Holy Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be on him), Hazrat Promised Messiah (on whom be peace) states: “My belief is indeed that the quwat e qudsi (attractive power for purifying) of him (peace and blessings of Allah be on him) was such, that no prophet was given so in world. Indeed the secret of progress of Islam is that, the absorbing-power of Noble Prophet was dominant. And moreover, such effectiveness was in his words that who would listen, would become captivated. The people, whom he attracted, he made them pure and clean.”
    What kind of changes Holy Prophet (s.a.w.) developed in his Sahabah, Hazrat Promised Messiah (a.s.) says: “We see the state of Sahabah, not any liar is seen in them. Even though when we see the early state of Arabs, they are seen laying in very low state. They were occupied in idol-worshipping, they were bold and fearless in usurping wealth of orphans and in all kind of evil deeds, they would do live like dacoits. In short, they were sunk in filth from head to feet.”

    But, he (s.a.w.) created such revolution in them, example of which is not found in other nations and this miracle of Holy Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be on him) is so great that it is enough to open eyes of the world.

    “It is difficult to reform a person but here a nation was prepared which showed such model of their Eman (belief) and sincerity that, for truth they were slaughtered like sheep and goat, which they had opted. Reality is this, they did not remain earthly but teaching of Messenger of Allah, (peace and blessings of Allah be on him) guidance and effective advice had made them heavenly, holy properties were developed in them. It is that model of Islam, which we present before the world. Due to this correction and guidance, Allah gave the name Muhammad to Holy Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be on him) as prophesy, by which his praise took place in earth, because he filled the earth with peace, conciliation and excellent morals and beneficence.”
