“May Allah the Almighty save humanity from the state of war that has erupted because if the situation worsens then the horrific consequences will be such that mankind cannot even imagine.” – Hazrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad

The World Head of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community, the Fifth Khalifa (Caliph), His Holiness, Hazrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad has delivered a strong warning to world leaders and governments regarding the Russia-Ukraine crisis. His Holiness urged world leaders to make every effort to de-escalate the situation before it erupts beyond all control.

His Holiness made the comments during his Friday Sermon on 25 February 2022 delivered at the Mubarak Mosque in Islamabad, Tilford, UK.

Hazrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad said:

“The current world situation has become extremely precarious and there is a real danger that crisis (between Russia and Ukraine) can escalate and spread much further afield. Certainly, the situation is not just limited to one country, rather, many countries will be engulfed if the conflict continues to deteriorate. Its impact will be catastrophic and its horrendous consequences will continue to reverberate and impact upon generations to come. Thus, I pray that may Allah enable mankind to recognise God Almighty and may they stop toying with the lives of innocent people simply to fulfil their own worldly interests.”

Hazrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad further stated:

“We, as Ahmadi Muslims, can only pray and seek to guide mankind and we have always done this and will forever continue to do so. Certainly, at this time, Ahmadi Muslims should pray with great fervency for the peace of the world. May Allah the Almighty save humanity from the state of war that has erupted because if the situation worsens then the horrific consequences will be such that mankind cannot even imagine. We can only pray that may Allah the Almighty save humanity.”
