Our Motto : 'In-Allah-ha-Ma'anaa' ("Be not grieved, for surely Allah is with us." - The Holy Quran 9:40). We find spiritual strength, courage and comfort, in the times of trials and  hardships, from this Divine Quranic revelation that descended upon the pure heart of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (may Allah's peace and blessings be upon him), so as to console and compose him during one of the most perilous moments of his life. <Please click the 'Our Motto' link on our homepage for more details>

Acknowledgements / Dedication / Foreword:

 

Acknowledgements:

Heartfelt thanks to Brother Hidayat (Dio) and Sister Jenny Mohammed; Brother Shaukat Ali and Sister Zahira Mohamed; and Brother Yamin Alibaksh for bearing the cost of this publication. May Allah shower His boundless mercy on them and their families and may He guide and protect them in every conceivable way. "Surely Allah is with those who keep their duty and those who do good (to Others)" (16:128).

 

Dedication:

To my loving parents and grandparents: "My Lord, have mercy on them, as they brought me up when I was little" (17:24) or, to adapt John Wesley's prayer: "They covered my defenceless head with the shadow of their wings."

They gave me all they had, and more. Sometimes through misty eyes I look back wistfully... but I hope for the fulfilment of Allah's promise both ways: "And those who believe and whose offspring follow them in faith - We unite them with their offspring and We shall deprive them of naught of their work" (52:21).

May Allah bless them, their forebears, their progeny, their friends, their helpers and their community.

Kalamazad Mohammed

 

Foreword:
by the Webmaster of the 'Official' Website of the Ahmadiyya Anjuman Isha'at-i Islam Lahore (Lahore Ahmadiyya Movement for the Propagation of Islam)
http://www.aaiil.org

Over a year ago, I received a letter from a friend of mine, living in Trinidad. Accompanying this letter was an article, entitled 'Gratitude', which had been written by Kalamazad Mohammed, BA. Dip. Ed., the esteemed author of this marvellous book, Speeches, Articles and Sermons. Upon going through the script of this article, it immediately dawned upon me, based on the article's concept and thought, that it came from the pen of a truly sincere servant of Allah. Prior to this, I had only once heard of the author of this book during a conversation I was holding with Mr. Nasir Ahmad, ex-Editor of The Light (the official organ of the Lahore Ahmadiyya Movement for the Propagation of Islam). He spoke very highly of the author, and, I, too, would soon be realising the truth of his words. Since then I have been receiving a steady and impressive stream of speeches, articles and sermons, all written by the author of this book. My respect for the author has certainly grown over this short span of time, mainly due to the deep sense of commitment that he holds for the propagation of Islam.

Allah has rightly chosen the author, an English schoolteacher, for a very noble task, viz., propagating Islam in modern English to the masses, a task which he has been ably carrying out, with great zeal, devotion and enthusiasm. In a time when our peaceful religious Movement, the Lahore Ahmadiyya Movement for the Propagation of Islam, has been missing its great authors of the past, e.g., Maulana Muhammad Ali, Khwaja Kamal-ud-Din, etc., the author has shown a beacon of light to the young Ahmadiyya generation, that has been in great need of religious scholars who can quench its spiritual thirst, in this materialistic age with all its adherent problems. 

Nearly a century ago, the Founder of the Ahmadiyya Movement (the Promised Messiah and Mahdi, and the Mujaddid or Renovator of the fourteenth century Hijrah), Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad of Qadian, was vouchsafed a prophecy by Allah: "I will cause thy message to reach the farthest limits of the world." I can say with absolute confidence that the author, belonging to a small village in Trinidad, has indeed done his part in bringing this prophecy into a living reality.

The speeches, articles and sermons that collectively form the pride of this book, touch all aspects of life, such as morals, faith, heart-touching experiences from the lives of the pious people of the past, etc. They all give tremendous insight into the knowledge flowing forth from the Holy Quran, the Sayings of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him), and the literature produced by the religious sages of the past. I must also specifically mention the effort put in by the author to make accessible, through English rendering, the wisdom expounded by the Holy Founder of the Ahmadiyya Movement in Islam in his books.

The core text of this book will certainly prove to be a manual par excellence for the masses around the globe, belonging to different castes, classes, colours, countries and creeds, to enlighten their minds preoccupied by worldly woes.

The popularity of this book will be of paramount interest to me, since, as the Webmaster of www.aaiil.org, I have already glimpsed through it. I have been making available, over this past year, the speeches, articles and sermons contained within the covers of this book, on the Official Website of the Ahmadiyya Anjuman Isha'at-i Islam, and I am overjoyed to say that thousands of people, ranging over 120 countries, the number of which keeps on increasing every day, Alhamdulillah, have read with great interest the literature penned by the most impressive author of this book, Masha-Allah.

I congratulate the author on this publication, and hope this heralds many more to follow. I also pray from the depths of my heart that Allah may give the author many a chance to continue his dedicated service to Islam.

In closing, I recommend this book to every household as a handy companion in the never-ending quest to acquire the boundless knowledge of the most enthralling religion of all – Islam.
