Friday Sermon


9-friday

We as Ahmadis are so blessed that Allah has bestowed Khilafat on us. At an early age, we should strive to build a strong relationship with Khilafat. We as the future of Ahmadiyyat should know that everything in our lives, our families, our businesses, our assets are second to the Khilafat. One way to build that relationship is by listening to the direct message by Hazrat Khalifatul Masih (May Allah be his helper) every Friday.  This is one of the 9 Habits which our youth lacks the most and need to build upon it.

About Friday & Friday Sermon:

Friday is a special day of the week for Muslims. Muslims take a bath, specially wear clean clothes and go to the Mosque to Pray Jum`a. Our beloved Hazoor also speaks to the entire world live.

Each week on Friday, Muslims are required to take a bath, dress in their best clean clothes, wear perfume and assemble in the mosque for Friday Prayer. Friday prayer is an occasion for the assembly of the Muslims of a whole city or a town. It gives them an opportunity to meet together to discuss and solve their individual as well as community problems. Getting together once a week develops unity, co-operation and cohesiveness among Muslims. Hadhrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad (atba), the Caliph and worldwide head of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community, delivers the Friday Sermon each Friday from the Baitul Futuh Mosuqe in London, the largest Mosque in Western Europe. MTA broadcasts the Friday Sermon Live with up to 8 simultaneous translations, and also provides an online stream. Through MTA therefore, the Imam is able to address not just the congregation, but also the entire world.  The Friday Sermon, in this way, becomes a demonstration of Islamic equality. It gives the Imam a chance to advise all Muslims at the same time on urgent matters that face them.

For Atfal

When you look around the state of non-Ahamdi Muslims, they are in turmoil. Their personal agendas and goals have taken them away from the true teachings of Islam – which came to unite the mankind under One God, not divide them. Unfortunately, due to a lack of divine leadership, they are suffering.

By the grace of Allah, We as Ahmadi Muslims are fortunate that He has bestowed the blessings of Khilafat upon us. However, these blessings come with a requirement – We should find a way to be a recipient of these blessings.

سَمِعَ أَبَا هُرَيْرَةَ ـ رضى الله عنه ـ أَنَّهُ سَمِعَ رَسُولَ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم يَقُولُ ” نَحْنُ الآخِرُونَ السَّابِقُونَ “. وَبِهَذَا الإِسْنَادِ ” مَنْ أَطَاعَنِي فَقَدْ أَطَاعَ اللَّهَ، وَمَنْ عَصَانِي فَقَدْ عَصَى اللَّهَ، وَمَنْ يُطِعِ الأَمِيرَ فَقَدْ أَطَاعَنِي، وَمَنْ يَعْصِ الأَمِيرَ فَقَدْ عَصَانِي، وَإِنَّمَا الإِمَامُ جُنَّةٌ يُقَاتَلُ مِنْ وَرَائِهِ وَيُتَّقَى بِهِ، فَإِنْ أَمَرَ بِتَقْوَى اللَّهِ وَعَدَلَ، فَإِنَّ لَهُ بِذَلِكَ أَجْرًا، وَإِنْ قَالَ بِغَيْرِهِ، فَإِنَّ عَلَيْهِ مِنْهُ ”

Narrated Abu Huraira: That I heard Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) saying, “We are the last but will be the foremost to enter Paradise).” The Prophet added, “He who obeys me, obeys Allah, and he who disobeys me, disobeys Allah. He who obeys the chief, obeys me, and he who disobeys the chief, disobeys me. The Imam is like a shelter for whose safety the Muslims should fight and where they should seek protection. If the Imam orders people with righteousness and rules justly, then he will be rewarded for that, and if he does the opposite, he will be responsible for that.”

For Parents

Your children will be fine if you help them build a strong bond with Khilafat! When you look around the state of non-Ahamdi Muslims, they are in turmoil.

Unfortunately, due to a lack of divine leadership, they are suffering.

  • Huzur-e-Anwar (aba) talks to each Ahmadi every Friday as stated by him. When he visits us in USA, we all sacrifice a lot to go and meet him… but what good it is for us if rest of the year, we don’t listen to him directly talking to us?
  • Lets make a habit of watching the sermon as a family. If you cant watch it live, watch it on our various ways to watch (look under resources). Please make sure you have your children are listening to the words of our beloved Imam.
  • Explain them the summary if they find it difficult to understand
  • Start a family competition and ask children to write a summary for you. Reward them, encourage them.
  • Build a strong relationship with Huzur-e-Anwar
