Peace and mercy of Allah be on you
Hazrat Khalifatul Messiah V (may Allah be his Helper) said after his previous sermon about Salaat that members have written they shall be mindful of offering Salaat and correct deficiencies.
The system of Jama'at and auxiliaries have to make programs to increase attendance in our mosques. The zeal should be continued.
The lethargy should be avoided.
Mothers in homes should keep drawing the attention of men and youth boys to go to mosque for Salaats.
Holy Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be on him) said that wife and husband , whoever awakes early, should awake other for Salaat and if other does not wake, sprinkle water droplets.
On some occasions Holy Prophet (s.a.w.) gave stricter warning. Thus no one should be angry when reminded about Salaat.
Hazrat Promised Messiah (on whom be peace) came to end all disputes. He said he is Hakam (arbitrator) and Adal (Just) and believe in me. He (a.s.) presented solutions, he permitted things which were of minor differences i.e. both ways were right.
Thus about Rafa Yadain, he (a.s.) said: “No harm is evident in it whether one does it or not. In Ahadith, its mention is in both ways……….. It is evident that Messenger of Allah (peace and blessings of Allah be on him) did Rafa Yadain at some time and then left latter.”
Hazrat Promised Messiah (a.s.) continued the more acted acts of Holy Prophet (s.a.w.).
According to [observations and deduction from traditions in Community] Hazrat Promised Messiah a.s. did not do Rafa Yadain. He (a.s.) said Salaat offerers too should recite Sura Al-Fatiha (but not audible) behind the Imam in Salaat. He (a.s.) did not recite ‘bismillah verse’ audible and did not say ‘amin’ audible.
Hazrat Promised Messiah (on whom be peace) never liked to place folded hands below navel area a The Holy Prophet (s.a.w.) more times folded his hands above navel during Salaat.
Hazrat Promised Messiah (a.s.) told a person that apparent etiquette are essential to observe but more attention during Salaat should be towards Allah the Exalted.
When asked about why index finger is raised in Tashahud of Salaat while sitting, the Hazrat Promised Messiah (on whom be peace) said that, in time of ignorance, people used to raise this while calling bad names. That is why it was called ‘sababa’ i.e. finger for calling bad name. God the Exalted reformed Arab, and remove that bad habit and asked to raise this finger when calling God ‘Wahid’ (The One) and ‘La Sharik’ (No associate) to remove accusation from it. Arabs used to drink sharab five times a day, it is changed with five times of Salaat.
Hazrat Promised Messiah (a.s.) said Sajdah and Ruku is time of humbleness and Kalam of God the Exalted requires azmat / greatness. Additionally it is not proven from Ahadith that Holy Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be on him) read any Quranic prayer in Ruku and Sujud.
Hazrat Promised Messiah (a.s.) said a lot of prayer should be done in Salaat. Prayer should be done in own language but whatever is proven through Holy Prophet (s.a.w.) it should be recited in very same words. For example, after reciting ‘subhana rabbeyalazim’ in Ruku and ‘subhana rabbeyal alaa’ in Sajdah, prayer may be done in own language. Quranic prayer should not be recited in state of Sajdah and Ruku because Holy Quran is noble Kalam of God the Exalted and has exalted status, and Ruku and Sajdah is state of lowliness, that is why Kalam e Ilahi should be respected.
If someone joined congregational Salaat late and Imam is doing Ruku, whether that person’s Rakkat is completed or not? We know, yes his Rakkat is done
Hazrat Promised Messiah (a.s.) said his way is that ‘la salaata illa befatihatel kitab’. Individual or being after an Imam, one has to recite Surah Al Fatiha. But one should recite in slow pace so that muqtadi / follower should hear and recite for his own too or Imam should stop after every verse that muqtadi too should be able to read the verse. Anway muqtadi should be given time so that he can hear and read at his own too. It is essential to recite Surah Al Fatiha because it is Ummul Kitab. But a person, despite effort, join the Salaat during Ruku and could not join before, his Rakkat is done even though he did not recite Sura Al Fatiha in it because it is in Hadith that who found Ruku his Rakkat is done.
Surah Al Fatiha should be recited at own behind Imam.
About the sequence of Salaats when they are combined [zohar asr and maghrib esha]: Hazrat Promised Messiah (a.s.) guided:
a ) If late comer knows Imam is leading Asr Salaat, he should first offer his Zohar Salaat then join Imam. Similary if he knows Imam is leading Esha then first he should offer Maghrib Salaat then join Imam.
b ) But if late comer cannot know which Salaat is being offered he should join ongoing congregational Salaat, whatever Salaat is of Imam it will be of late comer too. Later he should offer his earlier Salaat…. If late comer did not know which Salaat is being lead by Imam and it turns out to be Asr Salaat and late comer’s Zohar Salaat was due too. Though as rule no Salaat is offered after Asr, but in this special case that he did not know, he can do so.
Hazrat Promised Messiah (a.s.) said Remember as God has informed me that it is not allowed and absolutely not allowed for you to offer Salaat behind any mukafir (denier), mukazib (calling liar) or mutaradid (hesitant) and it is needed that your Imam should be that who is from you and towards it there is indication in a side of Hadith of Bukahri ‘imamokum mikum’.............Reason for no-permission for offering Salaat behind others : He (a.s.) said the people who, hastley and by bad-assumption, have discarded this Movement which is established by Allah the Exalted and did not care so many signs, and remain careless about troubles upon Islam, they did not use Taqwa and Allah the Exalted says in His pure Kalam, ‘innama yataqabbalullaho minal muttaqin’ God accept Salaat of only mutaqi people. That is why it is said not to offer Salaat behind such a person whose own Salaat is not reachable to the station of acceptance..............They call us Kafir, if we are not Kafir then their Kufr return to fall back on them. One who call a Muslim a Kafir is Kafir himself. That is why offering Salaat behind such people is not permitted. Moreover, those people among them who are silent, they are included in them too. Salaat is not permitted behind them because they keep an opposing belief in their heart who do not join us apparently…………Do patience and do not offer Salaat behind who is not in your Jama'at. Goodness and virtue is in it and in it is your Nusrat and Fateh e Azim and it is cause of progress of this Jama'at. Look, in the world, displeased and mutually unhappy ones do not pay attention to their foe for some time. And your unhappiness and displeasure is for the sake of God the Exalted. If you kept mixed with them, then the special sight which God the Exalted keep at you, will not keep. When pure Jama'at is separate then progress takes place in it.
Hazrat Khalifatul Messiah V (may Allah be his Helper) prayed, may Allah the Exalted make us member of that Jama'at, by being pure which Hazrat Promised Messiah (on whom be peace) wants from us…..Pray for Ahmadis in Algeria, it is new Jama'at, majority is of new Bait doers but they have very strong faith. They are facing a lot of severity from government, cases are made for nothing, some are jailed. The blame is that they are like Daesh –nauzobillah (we seek Allah’s refuge). In reality, if in any country, there exist peace loving and law abiding people they are members of Jama'at Ahmadiyya. But because they had to blame, attempt is made to call us like them. Police entered in some houses. A woman was asked to remove long head cloth, she replied, you may kill me but I will not take it off, neither I will leave Ahmadiyyat. Judges have reached to extreme unjust. Judge said to an Ahmadi if you deny Ahmadiyyat I shall immediately set you free. The person replied, I can die but will not leave my faith Ahmadiyyat beause I have now learned it is true Islam. At this judge said, since you said it, now I shall keep you in jail for all your life and your die there. The person said, fine, do what ever you want to do. These are cincumstances there these days. May Allah the Exalted produce eases for Ahmadis there and grant them firmness in feet, and return evil back upon opponents of Islam Ahmadiyya, and may Allah the Exalted keep each Ahmadi in His refuge from these oppressors.
