Most of the postings are to do with what an average Kenyan citizen has to deal with, in the country, to survive.
They go through and are treated with a lot of injustice, where very few in 'officialdom', will take notice of their problems or even do anything about them.
Hence, this blog and the belief in, 'One learned man is harder on the devil than a thousand ignorant worshipers' - Prophet Muhammad (pbuh)
The Holy Quran in the Eyes of the Messiah, Mirza Ghulam Ahmad Qadiani
Epigraph: "Say, 'If the ocean became ink for the words of my Lord, surely, the ocean would be exhausted before the words of my Lord came to an end, even though We brought the like thereof as further help.'" (Al Quran 18:110)
The Holy Quran itself had predicted a dynamic and a remarkable teacher of the Scripture in the Latter Days. It reads in Surah Al Jumu'ah in the Quran:
He (Allah) it is Who has raised among the Unlettered people a Messenger from among themselves who recites unto them His Signs, and purifies them, and teaches them the Book and wisdom, although they had been, before, in manifest misguidance; And among others from among them who have not yet joined them. He is the Mighty, the Wise. (Al Quran 62:3-4)
To understand the prophecy of a Divinely guided reformer, of Persian descent, in the above quoted verses of Surah Al Jumu'ah, review the Hadith pertaining to the above quoted verses in the most authentic Hadith book, Sahih Bukhari :
Narrated Abu Huraira: While we were sitting with the Prophet Surah Al Jumu'ah was revealed to him, and when the Verse, "And He (Allah) has sent him (Muhammad) also to other (Muslims)…..' (62.3) was recited by the Prophet, I said, "Who are they, O Allah's Apostle?" The Prophet did not reply till I repeated my question thrice. At that time, Salman Al-Farisi was with us. So Allah's Apostle put his hand on Salman, saying, "If Faith were at (the place of) Ath-Thuraiya (Pleiades, the highest star), even then (some men or man from these people (i.e. Salman's folk) would attain it.
The Ahmadiyya Muslim Community believes that the Messiah, Mirza Ghulam Ahmad Qadiani, the Guided Founder of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community, was the teacher predicted in the above verses and the Hadith. To share his insights about the Holy Quran, here we propose to mention two excerpts from his writings. He wrote about the Holy Quran:
The Holy Qur'an is not matchless merely on account of the beauty of its composition, but is matchless on account of all its excellences which it claims to comprise and that is the truth, for whatever proceeds from God Almighty is not unique only on account of one quality but on account of every one of its qualities. Those who do not accept the Holy Qur'an as comprehensive of unlimited eternal truths and insights, do not value the Qur'an as it should be valued. A necessary sign for the recognition of the holy and true Word of God is that it should be unique in all its qualities, for we observe that whatever proceeds from God Almighty is unique and matchless even if it is only a grain of barley, and human powers cannot match it. Being matchless means being unlimited, that is to say, a thing can be matchless only when its wonders and qualities are unlimited and have no end. As we have just stated, this characteristic is found in everything created by God Almighty. For instance, if the wonders of a leaf of a tree are investigated for a thousand years, that period would come to an end, but the wonders of the leaf will not come to an end. That which has come into being through unlimited power, must comprise unlimited wonders and qualities. The verse, "Say, 'If every ocean becomes ink for the words of my Lord, surely, the ocean would be exhausted before the words of my Lord were exhausted, even though We brought the like thereof as further help;'" (18:110) supports this, for the whole of creation is Words of God.
... Thus this verse means that the qualities of creation are without limit and endless. Now when every created thing possesses unlimited and endless qualities and comprises numberless wonders then how could the Holy Qur'an, which is the Holy Word of God Almighty, be confined to the few meanings which may be set out in a commentary of forty or fifty or a thousand volumes, or could have been expounded by our lord and master the Holy Prophet [peace and blessings of Allah be on him] in a limited period? To say so would almost amount to disbelief, if it is deliberately persisted in. It is true that whatever the Holy Prophet [peace and blessings of Allah be on him] has set forth as the meaning of the Holy Qur'an is true and correct, but it is not true that the Holy Qur'an contains no more than the insights that have been set forth by the Holy Prophet [peace and blessings of Allah be on him]. Such sayings of our opponents indicate that they do not believe in the unlimited greatness and qualities of the Holy Qur'an.
Whereas the Holy Quran says, "Say, 'If every ocean becomes ink for the words of my Lord, surely, the ocean would be exhausted before the words of my Lord were exhausted, even though We brought the like thereof as further help.'" (Al-Quran 18:110)" [Karamat-us-Sadiqin, Ruhani Khaza'in, Vol. 7, pp. 60-62]
The above theme about the scope of the Holy Quran is mentioned in the Quran itself, more than once. In another place, we read in the Holy Quran:
To Allah belongs whatever is in the heavens and the earth. Indeed, Allah is Self-Sufficient, Praiseworthy. And if all the trees that are in the earth were pens, and the ocean – seven more oceans to replenish it – were ink, the words of Allah would not be exhausted. Surely, Allah is Mighty, Wise. (Al Quran 31:27-28)
The Messiah of this era, who was an ardent devotee of the Holy Prophet Muhammad, may peace be on him, also wrote on another occasion:
The clear miracle of the Holy Qur'an which can manifest itself to every people and by presenting which we can silence everyone, whether an Indian, Persian, European or American, is the unlimited treasury of insights, eternal truths and wisdoms, which are expounded in every age according to its need and stand as armed soldiers to refute the thinking of every age. If the Holy Qur'an had been limited in its eternal truths and insights, it would not have amounted to a perfect miracle. Beauty of composition is not a matter the miraculous nature of which can be appreciated by every literate and illiterate person. The clear miracle of the Holy Qur'an is the unlimited insights and fine points which it comprises. A person who does not admit this miracle of the Holy Qur'an is altogether deprived of the knowledge of the Qur'an. He who does not believe in this miracle does not estimate the Qur'an as highly as it should be estimated, and does not recognize God as He should be recognized, and does not honor the Holy Prophet [peace and blessings of Allah be on him] as he should be honored.
Bear it in mind that the miracle of unlimited insights and eternal truths which are contained in the Holy Qur'an has accomplished more in every age than has the sword. All the doubts that every age raises according to its circumstances, and all the claims of superior insights that are put forward, are completely refuted by the Holy Qur'an. No Brahmu Samajist, Buddhist, Arya or any other philosopher can put forward a Divine Eternal Truth which is not already comprised in the Holy Qur'an. The wonders of the Qur'an will never cease. As the wonderful qualities of the book of nature have never come to an end in any previous age, but appear ever fresh and new, the same is the case with this Holy Book, so that the word of God and the work of God should be proved to be in accord.
As I have written before, very often the wonders of the Holy Qur'an are revealed to me and are such that they are not to be found in the commentaries. For instance, it has been revealed to me that the period that elapsed between the creation of Adam and the advent of the Holy Prophet [peace and blessings of Allah be on him] is mentioned in Surah al-'Asr in the value of its letters and amounts to 4,740 lunar years."
