May 28, 2015 Leave a comment
27th May is very important date in the history of Ahmadiyya which is celebrated by Ahmadis in the whole world as Khilafat Day. Each and every Jama’at performs Jalsa to celebrate the historical moment when Khilafat Ahmadiyya has been established for the first time on 27th May, 1908 after the demise of the Promised Messiah (as). By the grace of Allah, Ahmadiyya Muslim Jama’at Tuvalu has commemorated Khilafat Day by performing a Jalsa on 27th May, 2015 at Tuvalu Mosque.Tuvaluan Ahmadis were enthusiastic to attend the Jalsa eventhough the rain was pouring down on that time.
After having Maghrib and Isya namaz led by the Imam of Tuvalu Mosque, the Jalsa was begun. The first program was the recitation of the Holy Quran by Hafiz Pule sahib. He recited the Holy Quran ch. 24, verse 56 about Khilafat. The second program was speech about the blessing of Khilafat by Imam of Tuvalu Mosque, Mohammed Idrees sahib. He has expalained that Ahmadis are celebrating 107th Anniversary of Khilafat Ahmadiyya. It is crystal clear that history has given strong proof that Allah Ta’ala is always with Khilafat Ahmadiyya. Allah himself has established the institution of Khilafat in Ahmadiyya Jama’at. Allah Ta’ala as He has done before would always support Khilafat Ahmadiyya till the end of the world. This was the promise of Allah which it has been prophecied by the Holy Prophet Mohammed (saw). Ahmadis have to be grateful for being blessed with the institution of Khilafat despite there are many Muslims who are still longing for Khilafat to be established. Indeed what they are longing is merely a wishful thinking. He also encourages Tuvaluan Ahmadis to strengthen the bond with Khalifah Waqt as he is the representative of Allah right now. Ahmadis are strongly adviced to always pray for him daily, listen to his Friday Sermons and try to put all his directives into action. One of the very effective ways to strengthen the relationship with Khalifah Waqt is to always communicate with him. Nowdays we could send letters to Huzoor (May Allah be his Helper) frequently. He also suggests Tuvaluan Ahmadis to send the letters at least once a month.
The last program of Khilafat Day Jalsa was writing letter to Huzoor (May Allah be his Helper). The attendants of the Jalsa were requested to write the letters to Huzoor with the assistance and guidance of Imam sahib. He guided each and every Ahmadi to write their first letters to Huzoor. This was their first time to have such experience as most of the Ahmadis in Tuvalu are new converts. They wrote the letters for different purposes such as for the spiritual enhancement, the success of study, getting good job, recovery of the illness, etc. Moreover, the closing of their letters are the same which is Happy Khilafat Day (27th May 2015). All the letters would be sent altogether via mail the next day. Happy Khilafat Day to all Ahmadis in the whole world from Ahmadis in Tuvalu Islands.
