Obey the Holy Prophet and try to become his like (Malfoozat)

(Translated into English by Sir Muhammad Zafrullah Khan)

To be a Muslim is not a child's play. It requires complete submission in everything to the Holy Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him). Do not take it cursorily. It is a matter worth deep consideration. Do not feel complacent until you obey the Holy Prophet completely. If you call yourself a Muslim without doing so, you have only a shell without the kernel. A wise man will not be happy with a shell only nor on bearing an empty name. In old times a Muslim in name tried to convert a Jew to Islam. The latter chided him for rejoicing on outward form devoid of inner reality. He said,

Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad The Promised Messiah & Mahdias

"It is easy to understand that the object of man's life should be to become the beloved of God Almighty. "

Muslim conqueror who lived long and won brilliant victories for Islam. But before it

"What is there in a name? I named my son Khalid, after the name of the famous

was evening I had to bury my child." So do not be happy with mere names. Seek instead the inner reality. What a shame! You profess to follow the Holy Prophet, the greatest of all Prophets, yet you live like kafirs. So live your life like the Holy Prophet and frame your mind like him. If you do not do so you are following Satan. It is easy to understand that the object of man's life should be to become the beloved of God Almighty. Until a man becomes so, he has not succeeded in life. But this object is not attained until you obey the Holy Prophet truly. The Holy Prophet has shown by his conduct the real significance of Islam. So follow that Islam if you want to become the beloved of God. (AlHakam, January 24, 1901)

Majlis Baitul Huda

Message from Muslim Ahmed, Nazim Isha'at, Majlis Baitul Huda In the Name of Allah, The Most Gracious, Ever Merciful. With the blessing of God, Majlis BaitulHuda is moving forward in order to successfully organize the upcoming Sydney Ijtema. In the month of June we held two meetings at the mosque. Qaid Saheb encouraged khuddam to participate in Jamaat and Khuddam activities, bringing a good turnout. We had 26 khuddam participation in first meeting and 25 in second meeting. The main purpose of both meetings was to discuss the Ijtema participation and conduct training.

The first meeting was held on 12 June. The meeting started with a verse from The Holy Quran. A khadim recited a nazm from kalaametahir. Other Khuddam also read the summary of khutbaejuma delivered by Huzoor atba, and practiced nazm and speeches for the Ijtema. The meeting ended with dua. We had a joint lunch after the meeting. Soccer training were also conducted on a few occasions by Syed Tariq and Ajmal Khan. The fact that khuddams are meeting together to socialise and do physical training is great, which builds a stronger brotherhood within the Majlis. A number of Khuddam have donated blood and we encourage more participation in this lifesaving venture. Waqareamal is ongoing as usual, currently concentrating on finishing the Khilafat

Jubilee Hall landscaping project led by Br Murad Khan. We do request everyone to sacrifice their time for the mosque and thank those who are regular and encourage others to spare their time also.
