Khilafat – successorship of prophethood

After Prophethood, Khilafat is the most important institution in Islam. Khulafa are ultimately appointed by God through His Divine guidance. Though Khilafat had disappeared, it has been re-established as prophecied by The Holy Prophet, Muhammad (sa). more…

“Allah has promised to those among you who believe and do good works that He will, surely, make them successors in the earth…” more

“Prophethood shall remain among you as long as Allah shall will. He will bring about its end and follow it with Khilafat…” more

The first four successors after The Holy Prophet Muhammad (sa) are known as the “Guided Khilafat”.

Lasting a little over two years, Hazrat Abu Bakr’sKhilafat successfully maintained the Muslim unity after the death of The Holy Prophet saw.

By forming a consultative body of advisors to the Khalifa and dividing the Islamic state into provinces, Hazrat Umar bin Khattab established an effective system of Islamic administration and governance.

As Khalifa, Hazrat Uthman bin Affan, oversaw the reproduction and propagation of the Holy Quran throughout the Muslim state. He also spent much of his personal wealth for furthering the cause of Islam.

Cousin and son-in-law of The Holy Prophet saw, Hazrat Ali ibn Abi Talibsought to establish peace after Hazrat Uthman’s assassination.

The successors after The Promised Messiah (as) are known as the “Ahmadiyya Khilafat”.

Like Hazrat Abu Bakr, Hazrat Nooruddinestablished the unity of the Community after the death of the Promised Messiah.

Also known as the “Promised Reformer”, Hazrat Mahmood Ahmadintroduced many improvements into the administration of the Community.

As Khalifa, Hazrat Nasir Ahmad offered great leadership and guidance when Pakistan declared the Community to be non-Muslim.

In addition to his many notable achievements, Hazrat Tahir Ahmadlaunched the first Muslim satellite television network.

As the current Khalifa, Hazrat Masroor Ahmad is guiding the Community through a time of great global skepticism and animosity towards Islam.

  1. In the name of Allah, the Gracious, the Merciful.

    Peace be on you,

    This Message to you is by the command of your Creator, of which He send me; Rasheedat as a Warner; that you seek His forgiveness for wrongdoings and follow His Guidance in the Qur’an alone.
    A Similitude of those who believe in Prophet Muhammad of Arabia and follow the teachings of the Book of hadiths is like those who believe in Jesus in the Bible; follow the New Testament and those who believe in Moses in the Bible and the Old Testament. They all disbelieve in the truth; the Qur’an and worship idols; gods beside the One True God; to Whom belongs all that is in the heavens and the earth and all that is between the two. They are unaware that Satan who God Almighty has warn men to be on guard against his deceit; is leading them astray. There is no other God to be worshiped and Praised except Allah; He has no partner. The worldly life is temporary; forget not the meeting with your Lord and be content with the ornaments of this life; all shall return to Him. Follow the path of one people who worship One True God: Abraham, Noah, Moses, Jesus (peace be on them) and others as mentioned in the Qur’an. Now is the time to renounce other gods; heed the call of He Who Create you, and will cause you to die; the Most Forgiving, the Merciful, and Whose punishment is severe. Turn to Him in repentance for wrongdoings; worship Him alone in the mornings and evenings. Praying 5 times daily, Celebrating Eid-festivals; prostrating in the sun, Praying with loudness, Saying things about Allah which one has no knowledge is not Islam; but grievous sin and evil practices. The Qur’an is misinterpreted and the truth hidden. But now, the truth has come from the Knower of the unseen and the seen. Prophet Muhammad of Arabia is not the Messenger of Allah.

    Jesus (peace be on him), son of Mary is Muhammad(un) to the children of Israel; he prophesied the coming of Ahmad (peace be on him), who is Muhammad(un) this present age; he explain everything in the Qur’an so that all peoples; Worship none but Allah. The Qur’an is the only Book of guidance for all men in Arabic; the language they (Messengers) speak. A Book of Wisdom of which only the Gracious God can bestow the true understanding and interpretation on whomsoever He pleases. It does not teach violence as many have been deceived. Glorify and Praise God Almighty before the rising of the sun and before the setting in humility and secret (in the mind with no loudness). Afternoon Prostration is grievous wrong. Stand and Prostrate to Him in the latter parts of the night that are nearer the day. Islam is simple and peaceful; the only accepted religion by the Master of the Day of Judgment but none has practiced it. Come to Peace!, Come to the faith of one people who worship One God. Those who believe in Prophet of Arabia; Book of Hadiths do not practice Islam. All have been deceived: Those who ascribe as Muslims, Christians, Jews, others. Again, this is from the Merciful, the Most Loving to all peoples including those who doubt His Majesty or say there is no God. Turn to Him in repentance and worship in truth. There is only One True God, one True Book. The Book of Hadiths, Book of New Testament, Book of Old Testament are schism created by men who disbelieve; to turn men away from the way of Allah; they bring about enmity and hatred to the true words of God Almighty. And practicing their false teachings is worship to gods beside One True God. Thus, defiance to the truth that has now come will lead men to ruin. Relatives, friends; will not be able to save from the severe punishment of the awful day on the disbelievers who choose not to repent and reform from evil.
