Message of His Holiness, MIRZA MASROOR AHMAD, Khalifa-tul-Masih Vaba The Spiritual Leader of the Worldwide Ahmadiyya Muslim Jamaat
Dear Readers of Id-Dawl,
Assalamo ‘alaikum wa rahmatullahe wa barakatohu—peace and blessings of Allah be upon you all.
I am very pleased that by the Grace of Allah, February 2022 will mark the 50th edition of your monthly magazine Id-Dawl. Alhamdolillah! May Allah bless you and enable you to continue to inform the readers of the true teachings of Islam which promote peace and harmony for all mankind.
The Promised Messiah (may Allah’s peace be upon him) has stated; “One of the various other Quranic prophecies about the latter days is, the latter days are those when books will be published in abundance.”
So Allah the Almighty did not only foretell the victory of Islam in the latter days, but also provided us with the means of its propagation. The purpose of publishing this magazine is also the propagation of Islam, which was the objective for which the Promised Messiah, peace be upon him, came into the world. Allah Almighty has now provided us various ways and means for the spreading of the message of Islam including publications. Therefore, may Allah grant you opportunity to utilise these resources properly and enable you to render admirable services in preaching the beautiful teachings of the Holy Prophet Muhammad peace and blessings of Allah be upon him and Islam, effectively and in an exemplary manner.
No matter where in the world we are working, our objective is to take the message of the Promised Messiah peace be upon him to every corner of the world. Allah Almighty will definitely bring this to pass because He revealed to the Promised Messiah peace be upon him that ‘I shall carry thy message to the ends of the earth’ and for this task He has provided us with so many resources.
Only if we self-reflect and fully appreciate the significance of our responsibilities, and also participate in Tabligh (outreach) activities, will we truly be seen to be honouring the obligations required of us. Only then can we be included among those fortunate ones who gain Divine nearness. May Allah enable you to do this. May Allah bless you all.
