By the grace of Allah, MKA USA has received many blessings this year. Indeed, the financial sacrifices we make multiply the blessings we receive. Every Khadim and Tifl is obligated to pay his MKA membership dues. Please contact your local Nazim Maal or Qaid Sahib to pay your remaining MKA membership dues as soon as you can. Eid is a great opportunity to exhibit sacrifice for the sake of God. Don't be left behind in earning these blessings....

Dear Khuddam, السلام عليكم ورحمة الله وبركاته With the conclusion of the blessed month of Ramadan, Eid Mubarak to all of you! It's always a time for exultation and unbridled joy. The lights are lit at home, new clothes are donned, and mother makes her best sweets. But sometimes there's a lingering regret mingled with that joy - a feeling that we didn't quite do enough during Ramadan. People are often heard saying, "I wish I could have done more." More prayers, more Qur'an, more sacrifice, just not enough time to do more, etc. My dear brothers, that chance to do more lay ahead. It is not an opportunity missed. It's a opportunity that lay ahead. And you are conditioned really well in this moment to take on the rigors of advanced spirituality. Just fasting for Allah's sake alone gives you the discipline and self-restraint you need, even without some of the bonus points that come with nightly tarawee, tahajjud, and completing a read...

Dear Khuddam, السلام عليكم ورحمة الله وبركاته Today is MLK Day, and I wished to say a few words. The themes of civil rights activism and racial equality are being remembered. The ancestors of our African Americans faced unimaginable cruelty for centuries. Many horrifying details of those stories remain untold. We don't celebrate people so much as we celebrate and honor the legacies which people commonly associate with them.  As such, MKA USA joins the rest of America today in honoring racial equality. Anyone who thinks they can honor racial integration by remembering it on one day of the year has missed the point. Our Holy Prophet (sa) taught us a message for all times.  In his final sermon he said: A white is no greater than a black, and an Arab is no greater than a non-Arab. It is a point of reflection for us all, especially for the "white" and the "Arab" of today's Jamaat. The Prophet (sa) continued by saying: The only...

My dear Ahmadi youth, We are outraged by the violence we see around the world being done in the name of Islam. The future it seems is becoming increasingly insecure and uncertain. But rather than be afraid or uneasy, recognize this is a timely opportunity given to you by Allah to tell others what true Islam is. No community has the guidance or credentials to speak about it like ours does. If you’ve never done tabligh in your life, this is the time to start. Trust me when I say it doesn't take much and it's easier than you think. Meanwhile, if at any time you are treated unfairly for reasons related to your faith, it is absolutely paramount that your conduct remain patient, honorable and dignified. The Holy Qur’an reminds us that when the ignorant address you, remain graceful and offer them a word of ‘peace’ (Holy Qur’an 25:64). So in such a situation, be the better Muslim and be the...

16 Graduates receive their Shahid Degrees from Head of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community  The Ahmadiyya Muslim Community is pleased to announce that the first Convocation Ceremony of Jamia Ahmadiyya Germany took place at the Jamia Ahmadiyya Germany premises in Riedstadt on 17 October 2015. The ceremony was presided by the World Head of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community, the Fifth Khalifa (Caliph), His Holiness, Hazrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad. During the ceremony, 16 graduates were presented with their ‘Shahid Degree’ certificates by Hazrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad and were thus enrolled as official Missionaries of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community. Following the presentation, Hazrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad delivered a faith-inspiring address, in which he reminded the graduates of their vast responsibilities and the importance of the covenant they had made with God Almighty. Hazrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad said: “The pledge you have made of devoting your entire lives to the spread of the true and peaceful teachings of Islam is not an insignificant matter. Having studied the Holy Quran...

  Abdul Hai Thomas - Jacksonville, Florida   In July 1991 and November 1992 I begged my mother to take me to see ‘Boyz n the Hood’ and ‘Malcolm X’. Although hesitant to let a 9-10 year old watch violent movies, she agreed to take me as long she “covered [my] eyes during the bad parts”. However, I wasn’t interested in the violence or the bad parts, I was intrigued by the cultural and societal implications of the stories. After watching those two movies, four scenes left indelible impressions on me: 1) Furious Styles taking Tre and Ricky to Compton and telling them about gentrification 2) Ricky being killed by gang violence 3) Malcolm X struggling to fall to his knees in submission 4) Malcolm X’s pilgrimage to Mecca In connecting these scenes, even as a young child, I knew that Islam was the remedy. In that theater in Dayton, Ohio, November 1992, Allah Almighty chose me. I turned to my mother and told her I was going...

Sermon Delivered by Hazrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad at Head of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community With the grace of God Jalsa Salana of Jama'at Ahmadiyya UK starts from next week. Volunteers have been busy for past several weeks at Hadiqatul Mahdi preparing for Jalsa. These preparations by Khuddam and other volunteers have intensified in the last ten days. It is no mean feat to make all the arrangements on what is essentially farmland. Khuddam from various parts of the UK and other volunteers do this task with amazing skill, and no example of this can be found in the whole world in any other organisation. It is a grace of God that He has instilled this passion in young men and others after taking Bai'at of the Promised Messiah (on whom be peace). Sunshine or rain these young men serve selflessly for Jalsa Salana as initiated and established by the Promised Messiah (on whom be peace). And during Jalsa days thousands of...
