London Region Celebrate Musleh Maud Day


 

According to the prophecies of the Holy Prophet Mohammad (SAW), Hadhrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad of Qadian is the Promised Messiah and Imam Mahdi of the latter days.  Devine heavenly signs were shown to verify the coming of the Promised Messiah and one of the great prophecies was the advent of the Promised Son Hadhrat Musleh Maud (ra).  This was announced by Hadhrat Mirza Ghulam Ahamd (as) himself on the 20 Februrary 1889 in Hoshairpur India.


This prophecy was fulfilled with the arrival of the holy spiritual son Hadhrat Musleh Maud (ra).  Due to this great heavenly revelation the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community celebrates the Musleh Maud day on the 20th of Februrary in every country of the world where it is established.  To celebrate this occasion the London Region held the event on the 21st of February 2010 under the chairmanship of the President of the UK,  Mr Rafiq Ahmad Hayat at the Baitul Futuh Mosque in London. 

 

The proceedings of the event began with Tilawat by Mr Ikrama Najmi which was followed by a Poem of Hadhrat Musleh Maud (ra) recited by Mr Nadim Ahmad Zahid.  Following on from this, Mr Mahmood Ahmad gave a speech in Urdu and English explaining the background of the prophecy as well as the fulfilment and blessings of the Promised Son.  He explained that Hadhrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad (as) of Qadian confronted the accusations of many of Qadian by devoting himself for a period of 40 days to Allah asking for divine signs for the superiority of Islam over other religions.  During this period Allah revealed the prophecy in further detail to him.  It was revealed that he would be blessed with a son who will have 52 qualities and among those will be his achievements and advancements to reach the corners of the earth carrying out his mission.  Nations will take blessings from him, he will be very kind hearted and an intellectual with high degree of knowledge and wisdom in a variety of areas.  It was also revealed to Hadhrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad (as) that this son would be born in a period within the next nine years.  According to this prophecy Hadhrat Musleh Maud, Mirza Bashiruddin Mahmood Ahmad (ra) was born on the 12 January 1889 and was blessed with all the 52 qualities as had been prophesied earlier.  This is why a fresh new revival of faith and commitment to Allah resurged due to his advent and leadership, this was exactly the motive for the coming of the Promised Messiah and Mahdi.


The second speech of the day was by Mr Tariq Ahmad Hayat.  The topic for his speech was “The Purpose of Hadhrat Musleh Maud’s Advent”.  In his speech he mentioned how Hadhrat Musleh Maud (ra) revealed that he was the Promised Son, and through him such significant achievements and advancements were apparent that it truly was the work of divine guidance which came true in the light of the prophecies.  He mentioned another prophecy which was that Hadhrat Musleh Maud (ra) would provide guidance and spiritual enhancement for the needy and he would establish Islam in all corners of the world.
