Head of Ahmadiyya Muslim Community delivers Friday Sermon from Frankfurt
People in all parts of the world joining Ahmadiyya Muslim Community through divine guidance – Hazrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad
On 16 October 2015, the World Head of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community, the Fifth Khalifa (Caliph), His Holiness, Hazrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad delivered his weekly Friday Sermon from the Baitul Aafiyyat complex in Frankfurt, Germany.
Over 4,900 attended*, whilst the sermon was also broadcast live across the world on MTA International.
During his address, His Holiness recounted how during his recent trip to Holland a journalist asked him if the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community was the fastest growing community in the world.
His Holiness responded by saying that from the perspective of an organised international community, united under one leadership, the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community was the fastest growing community and this was now being acknowledged by external sources.
His Holiness said that this fact alone served as a testimony to the truth of the Founder of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community, His Holiness, Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad, the Promised Messiah (peace be on him).
Hazrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad said:
“During his life, the Promised Messiah (peace be on him) said with total certainty that a time would come when the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community would be acknowledged and recognised throughout the world and its spread would be a sign of Divine help. And today, that lone voice that emanated from a small village of India is resounding loudly in all parts of the world.”
Speaking about how God Almighty was supporting the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community, Hazrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad said:
“Narrations of new Ahmadi Muslim converts from all parts of the world are quite astonishing, whereby in the face of widespread opposition they are provided with the comfort and help of God Almighty. Certainly, the persecution and opposition faced by the followers of the Promised Messiah (peace be upon him) has been so vehement and unrelenting, that had this been a man-made community, it would surely have perished by now. However, God Willing, the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community will never perish, but with God’s Help will continue to succeed and progress.”
Turning to the present day, His Holiness said that people in all parts of the world were being divinely guided towards the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community through dreams and signs.
His Holiness narrated many such accounts from the past year where people, some of whom were living in the most remote parts of the world, had been drawn towards the truth of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community through divine guidance.
Speaking about the need for continued spiritual and moral improvement, Hazrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad said:
“Many people attest to the fact that their spiritual condition has been transformed after joining the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community and a moral and pious reformation has developed within them. And so we should all continuously seek to develop pious changes in our lives and forever try to instil positive reform.”
Concluding, Hazrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad prayed that Ahmadi Muslims were able to spread the true and peaceful teachings of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) to all parts of the world.
*Note: Around 3,000 of the worshippers offered their prayers at the Baitus Subuh Mosque, which lies in extremely close proximity to Baitul Aafiyyat.
