The Blessings of KhilafatKhilafat: United Under One Hand
Allah says in the Holy Qur'an:
Allah had promised to those among you who believe and do good works that He will surely make them Successors in the earth, as He made Successors from among those who were before them; and that He will surely establish for them their religion which He has chosen for them; and that He will surely give them in exchange security and peace after their fear: They will worship Me, and they will not associate anything with Me. Then whoso is ungrateful after that, they will be the rebellious.
(Surah An-Nur verse 56)
“Prophethood shall remain among you as long as Allah shall will. He will bring about its end and follow it with Khilafat on the precepts of prophethood for as long as He shall will and then bring about its end. A tyrannical monarchy will then follow and will remain as long as Allah shall will and then come to an end. There will follow thereafter monarchial despotism to last as long as Allah shall will and come to an end upon His decree. There will then emerge Khilafat on precept of Prophethood.” (Masnad Ahmad)

Special Bond With Khilafat
13 years ago, when I was introduced to Ahmadiyyat, I had only heard about the very special bond Ahmadis shared with their beloved Khalifa. I was told of people’s accounts which spoke of unparalleled obedience and faith in Khilafat; but most of all I was amazed to see the love that members of this community have for their leader. Being a Hindu, I had not known such affection could exist for a religious leader.

Guidance for Nasirat
“First thing is, remove all the complexes with regards to your religion, with regards to your faith, with regards to your appearance, with regards to your family background. Develop self-confidence within yourself. Then pray to Allah the Almighty in your five daily prayers. Dedicate one full Sajdah [prostration] for this purpose that Allah the Almighty gives you the strength to overcome the bad things of present-day society. So, the best way is to pray while you are offering your five daily prayers.”
Hazrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad (aba),

Nasirat share their views on Khilafat
My life without Huzoor (aba) would be nothing! He’s the leader I’m following, and he leads me to the right path. Without him I wouldn’t know the things I know today which are so important for every one of us.
The Khalifa of the time, Hazrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad (aba), is the person we should be loving the most even before our parents. My mum and dad tell me to love Huzoor (aba) as much as you can – to your heart’s content.
Khilafat has changed the world by it’s wonderful inspiring messages and stories and I am glad that MTA has launched many apps and websites that truly can only not help us but other people around the world.
