06 Aug Writings of Hazrat Promised Messiah (as)

Continuing our series of weekly extracts of writings from Hazrat Masih-e-Maud (as) from "Philosophy of the Teachings of Islam": Reward and punishment start immediately and those condemned to hell go to hell, and those who are to be admitted to heaven go to heaven. But thereafter there is a day of grand manifestation which has been appointed out of the great wisdom of God. He created man so that He should be recognized through His power of creation. Then He will destroy everything so that He might be recognized through His Supremacy over everything, and then He will gather everyone after bestowing perfect life on them so that He might be recognized through His Power. ...

29 Jul Service to Humanity – Feeding the Needy

by: Madeel Abdullah Mohtamim Khidmat-e-Khalq بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمٰنِ الرَّحِيْمِ   By the Grace of Allah, 8 months into the year, the Ahmadiyya Muslim Youth Association (AMYA) USA has been able to feed 86,410 people on our way to reaching 100,000 people by the end of the year, Insha’Allah.  This comes with 92% of chapters across the country participating in this noble cause. During the Holy month of Ramadhan, our food drives actually increased.  Food drives from New York to Los Angeles and from Chicago to Houston were held during this period.  Food was prepared at homeless shelters, canned goods were collected at the Mosques and community centers, and thousands of meals were packaged.  Our youth fed the nation’s hungry as they themselves fasted from any food or water. Why feed the hungry? Simply, it is for the sake of God as Allah says in the Quran: “And they are those who give food – in spite of their own need, to the needy, and the orphan,  and...

Continuing our series of weekly extracts of writings from Hazrat Masih-e-Maud (as) from "Philosophy of the Teachings of Islam": In short, this body which is required according to the condition of one's actions, becomes a source of the recompense of good and evil in the intermediate state.  I have experience of this.  I have often had experience in a complete state of wakefulness of meeting some persons who had died, and I saw that the bodies of some evil-doers and misguided ones were so dark as if they had been made of smoke....

14 Jul Ramadhan Reflections #2

  by: Abdul Hai Thomas بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمٰنِ الرَّحِيْمِ As Almighty Allah opened the gates of paradise this Ramadan, I felt it happening. As I called the Adhan, I felt angels making straight rows, and Allah running shaitan out of my veins. I was filled with so much light and excitement, I could not recall Iqamat. I attempted to recite it, but was so overwhelmed I could only remember ‘Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar’. I turned to my wife and conveyed my awe. She said, “I feel it too. Just take a second and relax.” That feeling has not yet subsided. I have almost completed my first Arabic reading of the Holy Qur’an. During previous Blessed Months, I completed the English readings (including commentary), but reading it in Arabic has fostered a deeper connection with Allah Almighty, the Holy Prophet Muhammad (saw), the re-institution of Khilafat through Promised Messiah (as), and mankind. My fear and love of our Creator has increased beyond imagination due to His...
