Those meeting His Holiness were immigrants from Pakistan, many of whom had never met His Holiness before
On 6 December 2020, the World Head of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community, the Fifth Khalifa (Caliph), His Holiness, Hazrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad held a virtual online meeting with more than one hundred members of Majlis Khuddam-ul-Ahmadiyya (Ahmadiyya Muslim Youth Auxiliary) from Germany.
His Holiness presided the meeting from his office in Islamabad, Tilford, whilst the members of Majlis Khuddam-ul-Ahmadiyya were gathered at the Crystal Palace Event Hall in the German city of Gross-Gerau.
Those meeting His Holiness were all immigrants who had claimed asylum in Germany in recent years due to the persecution subjected against members of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community in Pakistan.
Each individual had the chance to personally speak to His Holiness and His Holiness prayed for the individuals and their families.
Whilst addressing all of the immigrants, His Holiness urged them to constantly seek the nearness of Allah the Almighty and to never forget Him. He also instructed the immigrants to ensure that they spoke only the truth during their asylum process.
Hazrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad said:
“During the asylum process you must never tell any falsehood or exaggerate in any way. Rather, simply explain the reality of what is happening in Pakistan, where every Ahmadi Muslim is living under the cloud of persecution knowing they could be targeted or falsely charged at any time. Tell them that it is due to such unjust circumstances that you have migrated in order to be able to live with religious freedom. If you always speak the truth then, God Willing, your asylum cases will be accepted.”
Hazrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad continued:
“On a personal level, you must ensure that you are regular in observing the five daily prayers (Salat) and you should bow down with heartfelt emotion and sincerity seeking the Help of Allah the Almighty. Additionally, you should develop the habit of offering voluntary prayers (Nafl) regularly. When you go for asylum hearings you should recite Surah Fatiha before entering the Court. Furthermore, you should make a firm pledge in your heart that once your case is accepted and when your circumstances improve you will continue to offer your prayers with diligence and regularity. If you do all of this then, God Willing, you will witness the Grace and Mercy of Allah the Almighty.”
Concluding, Hazrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad said:
“If you act upon what I have said your asylum applications will, God Willing, be accepted. Always remember that for all your needs you should turn to Allah the Almighty and, as I said before, you must make a firm pledge in your heart that when your circumstances improve you will not forget Allah but will continue to seek His nearness, you will continue to offer your prayers and you will continue to strive for righteousness. Allah the Almighty knows what a person’s true intention is and what is in their heart and so if you later become immersed in materialistic desires then you will suffer and face difficulties. Anyway, it is my prayer that may Allah the Almighty bless all of you and be your Helper and Protector. Ameen.”
