Friday Sermon delivered by Hazrat Khalifatul Masih V

Extract taken from Friday Sermon delivered by Hazrat Khalifatul Masih V [May Allah be His Helper!] on Friday Sermon May 28th 2021
His Holiness(aba) said that in his book The Will, the Promised Messiah(as) has written in detail regarding the establishment of Khilafat. The Promised Messiah(as) said that God always helps His prophets even after their demise, so that their mission may continue and reach completion.

His Holiness(aba) said that when the Promised Messiah(as) passed away, the opponents of the Community rejoiced and said the foulest of things regarding the Promised Messiah(as). They said that now upon his demise, this Community would falter and dissipate. The opponents said that without the Promised Messiah(as), the Community would surely be unable to operate and would fade away without anyone at the helm to lead it.

His Holiness(aba) said that these opponents were blind to the fact that God had assured the Promised Messiah(as) that even after his demise, his mission would continue and reach completion. Hence, the Promised Messiah(as) had told his Community that they would see a second manifestation and that this Community would continue.

His Holiness(aba) quoted the Promised Messiah(as) who said that a divine Community sees two manifestations, the first is the manifestation of the prophet himself. The second manifestation comes when the prophet passes away, and the Community experiences great difficulty. It is at that time that the second manifestation comes about, just as it did after the demise of the Holy Prophet(sa), when God Almighty established the second manifestation and commissioned Hazrat Abu Bakrra as the Khalifa.

His Holiness(aba) quoted the Promised Messiah(as) who said:

‘So do not grieve over what I have said to you; nor should your hearts be distressed. For it is essential for you to witness the second manifestation also, and it’s coming is better for you because it is everlasting, the continuity of which will not end till the Day of Judgement. And that second manifestation cannot come unless I depart. But when I depart, God will send that second manifestation for you which shall always stay with you just as promised by God in Barahin-e-Ahmadiyya. And this promise is not for my person. Rather the promise is with reference to you, as God [addressing me] says: I shall make this Jama‘at who are your followers, prevail over others till the Day of Judgment. Thus it is inevitable that you see the day of my departure, so that after that day the day comes which is the day of ever-lasting promise. Our God is He Who keeps His promise and is Faithful and is the Truthful God. He shall show you all that He has promised. Though these days are the last days of this world and there are many a disaster waiting to happen, yet it is necessary that this world continues to exist until all those things about which God has prophesied come to pass. I came from God as a manifestation of divine providence and I am a personification of His power. And after I am gone there will be some other persons who will be the manifestation of the second power [of God]. So, while waiting for the second manifestation of His power, you all together keep yourselves busy praying.’

[The Will pp.7-8]
