Children who love both their parents often find it difficult to answer the question: “Who do you love more, mummy or dad?” This question is often confused when looking at the mummy and dad when they try to type the correct answer that both can make happy Answers that entail usually work well. As long as we are talking only about mother and father, the problems are not as complex as they can in certain situations.
Hazura’s recent Friday sermon, delivered in Baitur Rahman, USA on November 2, 2018, pointed out one such situation where love can leave one embarrassment if asked a similar question: “Do you love more than Caliph or Holy Prophet?” Or “Who are you love more, Caliph or God, that the representative of the Caliph?
Huzoor drew our attention to this question, which, apparently, could seem only confusion, but could lead to serious deviations and innovations in their beliefs, if there were not the correct direction of their thinking process.
Huzoor said that although most of the Jamaats were “who is who and what is,” when it comes to understanding the status of holy characters, but if there are people who do not know who is standing there, they should immediately correct such a perversion.
Then Huzoor explained that if someone became a victim of this misunderstanding, when they put the Caliph of that time or any other holy person, beyond Allah Almighty Almighty, they do so in their own confusion. Huzoor said that neither he nor any other Khalifa before him had ever ruled the Jamaat in such a wrong direction, and that anyone who thinks this way, [associating partners with Allah],
Let's quickly take a look at what Huzoor has always stood.
Almost every Friday, Hazrat Amirul Momineen’s sermon ends with a prayer to Allah Almighty, for example, “May Allah help us understand the true spirit of the teachings of Islam”; “May Allah help us to follow the examples established by the Companion of the Holy Prophet”; “May Allah forgive our shortcomings and allow us to follow the path of Takwa”, etc. This not only shows that he wants us to pray to Almighty God, but Huzoor always obeys the will of God.
We write Huzoor for prayers, and he writes to us, saying that I pray to Allah Almighty that he will fulfill your desire.
In many cases, Huzoor told us to pray to Allah, even if we write in Huzoor to pray for a specific question.
If we have love in our hearts for Hazrat Khalifatul Masih, this is a great blessing of Allah; we love the one whom Allah chose to love. This makes our love for our beloved imam a valuable asset and should be put above all other senses.
Now, returning to the question of how we know that our love for our beloved imam is in the right direction, the answer is very simple. The first touchstone may be that if we obey or try our best to obey what Hazrat Khalifatul Masih asks us, the direction is obviously true, because Huzoor always calls us to the One God and His Messenger Hazrat Muhammad Rasulullah.
Another way is to understand whether our love for Khazrat Khalifatul Masih grows in love for the promised messiasas, the Holy Prophet and Allah the Almighty; the three lighthouses that the ship Hilafat floats to us.
The love of the Caliphate is directly proportional to the love of God. A person who is immersed in the love of God cannot be loved without loving what God loves most and anyone. Alhamdolillah, we have Khalifa. Khalifa, which is a beacon of light. The closer we get to it, the closer we get to the source of light; closer to Allah; closer to the Light of all worlds.
