Al-Hakam (8th Jan, Atfal from Nigeria)
- QUESTION: The questioner said that he was having difficulty balancing his schoolwork and hifz (memorisation of the Holy Qur'an). He said that he did not want to leave one for the other and asked Huzoor (aba) for advice).
“On the weekends, you [should] give your full time to your hifz class and on the weekdays, you should give time to your schoolwork. Even in school, if you don’t have much homework, whenever you get time, during the weekdays even, you should try to memorise the part of the Holy Quran which you have been taught during the weekend.”
- QUESTION: There was a vile allegation raised by opponents of the Jama'at about Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad’s(as) death. How should one could respond to this allegation?
Huzooraa added, “So, whatever they [opponents of the Jama'at] are saying is all concocted. They [the stories] are all fabricated. He died on the bed as the normal man dies, and there were so many witnesses there. It was even endorsed by the doctor as well that his death was not because of cholera.”
- QUESTION: When will Huzoor (aba) visit Nigeria?
- QUESTION: A young Tifl asked how he could become righteous?
- QUESTION: What should a person should do if they are praying at home and an elderly person needed their urgent assistance and attention?
- QUESTION: How one could get used to offering Tahajud prayer?
- QUESTION: How can a member of Majlis Atfal-ul-Ahmadiyya save themselves from worldly problems and what prayers could be said to prevent worldly issues?
أَعُوْذُ بِاللّٰهِ مِنَ الشَّيْطَانِ الرَّجِيْمِ “and: أَسْتَغْفِرُاللّٰهَ رَبِّيْ مِنْ كُلِّ ذَنْب وَّأَتُوْبُ اِلَيْهِ
“Istighfar will also save you from these bad things […]”
Al-Hakam (9th Jan, Khuddam from Nigeria)
- QUESTION: Some Ahmadi parents did not want to give their children’s hand in marriage to Ahmadis whose parents were not Ahmadi Muslims. Huzoor (aba) gave his advice to such parents and youth.
“If a person is a new convert, he is better than the non-Ahmadi. […] If a boy and girl want to get married and they have some understanding, and they are Ahmadis, then it is better for the parents to permit them to get married instead of saying ‘No, you are a new convert and we shall not give our girl’, or ask the boy that he should not marry a girl who is a new convert.
“It is better to marry with an Ahmadi girl or boy than to marry with a non-Ahmadi, and parents should not be that much rigid in this regard.”
- QUESTION: What are social media guideline for Ahmadi students?
“And those social media platforms which are spoiling your life, their programmes are making you morally corrupt – or can corrupt you spiritually or morally – then ask your students not to see them. […]
“But if you create your own social media platform, that would be better. Then at least those who are very much fond of visiting social media – if you have your own social media which can help you to increase their knowledge and make them morally and spiritually better – that would also help them to quench their thirst with regard to social media.”
- QUESTION: Some people are educating themselves about technology so they could carry out cybercrime. Can Huzoor (aba) advise how this can be prevented?
“If we know what are the good things and what are the bad things, then we shall definitely leave those things which are not good for us. But if we don’t understand, if we have become addicted to those things which are now available on social media – as I already said – and that can lead us to cybercrimes, then we cannot do anything. It is a matter of realisation. If you realise who you are and what are your duties, then you can stop doing all these things. Otherwise, you cannot do anything else.
“You see, this is a big charm on social media nowadays and that leads to cybercrime. This is what Satan said to Allah the Almighty when Allah said to the angels, ‘Submit yourself to Adam’, and Satan refused to do it. Even after that, he said […] ‘I am made of fire’ etc. and secondly, ‘Now, since you have asked me to get out of here, from Paradise, I will try my level best to make people do bad things; I will try my level best to make them go astray; I will try my level best to try to follow bad things – so this is what is happening nowadays. And social media and all these things are also playing their role in this regard; they are helping Satan fulfil his promise.
“And Allah the Almighty said, ‘That is okay, most of the people will follow you, but I will put all of them in Hell; I will fill Hell with them’. So, this is a matter of realisation, a matter of understanding.”
Huzoor [aba] said Ahmadis should regularly keep in touch with their fellow Ahmadi students and members and make them realise their duties to protect them from such harm."
- QUESTION: How one could balance enjoying life in school and religious activities?
“And after that, if you have time, you should try to increase your knowledge by reading some religious knowledge that will also – alongside increasing your secular knowledge – change your mindset; you will try to change yourself and try to be spiritually and morally good.”
Huzoor [aba] said that if it was not possible to give time to Jamaat activities – for example to Khuddam-ul-Ahmadiyya – during the weekdays, then at the weekends, students should give time to the Jamaat. Huzoor [aba] continued:
“[…] being a student, your first duty is to concentrate more on your studies but alongside it, never ever leave the five daily prayers and the reading of the Holy Quran.”
Wadud Ambali Sahib, Unit President Oau said most students were challenged by staying consistent in their religious life and studies. Huzoor [aba] said:
“As far as your secular education is concerned, I have already said being a student, your first priority should be your education. And alongside it, whenever you find time, apart from reading the Holy Quran and knowing the meaning of the Holy Quran, you should also read the literature of the Jamaat. As I have already said, it will change your mindset.
“Alongside your educational activities and secular education or other general knowledge books, if you are reading the religious books and the Jamaat literature, then it will increase your spiritual and moral knowledge as well.
“So you have to allocate some time. In the university or college, you spend only 6-7 hours at the most. Our university students even sometimes, some days they only spend one or two hours, there are only two, three periods or one period. And you have the remaining free time which you can use in the library by reading.
“When you are in the university, you go to the library, read the book which can increase your knowledge and when you are at home, you should also have some religious books, some Jamaat literature on your bedside, then before going to sleep, you can even read those books. Or whenever you find some time, you read the literature.
“This way you have to manage – you allocate some time. If you have an extra one, two, three hours [in] which you think you should study and you have already studied in the university and read some other secular books or general knowledge books, then you should read religious books. You will have to study both these books side by side.
“You have 24 hours in a day. After having six hours’ sleep, you have 18 hours. And if you spend six hours in school or university, then you’ll have 12 hours. If you spend some time with your family and eating and this and that, then [it would take] two hours, which leaves 10 hours. Then, for prayers and everything, two hours at the most, again eight hours [are left]. If you are going to play outside – if you are playing soccer or football, or whatever it is – at least two hours there, [leaving] six hours. In the remaining six hours, you have enough time, at least you can give one or two hours daily to your religious studies and that will increase your knowledge.
“If you only give one or two hours to your religious studies, that is enough to maintain your religious level or even better it, enhance it.”
