Letter to Prime Minister of Israel

His Excellency
Mr Benjamin Netanyahu
Prime Minister of Israel
Jerusalem

26 February 2012

Dear Prime Minister,

I recently sent a letter to His Excellency Simon Peres, President of Israel, regarding the perilous state of affairs emerging in the world. In light of the rapidly changing circumstances, I felt it was essential for me to convey my message to you also, as you are the Head of the Government of your country.

The history of your nation is closely linked with prophethood and Divine revelation. Indeed, the Prophets of the Children of Israel made very clear prophecies regarding your nation’s future. As a result of disobedience to the teachings of the Prophets and negligence towards their prophecies, the Children of Israel had to suffer difficulties and tribulations. If the leaders of your nation had remained firm in obedience to the Prophets, they could have been saved from enduring various misfortunes and adversities. Thus, it is your duty, perhaps even more so than others, to pay heed to the prophecies and injunctions of the Prophets.

I address you as the Khalifa of that Promised Messiah and Imam Mahdi (peace be upon him), who was sent as the servant of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him); and the Holy Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) was sent as the Mercy for All Mankind amongst the brethren of the Children of Israel in the semblance of Moses (peace be upon him) (Deuteronomy, 18:18). Hence, it is my duty to remind you of God’s Message. I hope that you will come to be counted amongst those who hearken to God’s Call, and who successfully find the right path; that path which is in accordance with the Guidance of God the Supreme, the Master of the heavens and the earth.

We hear reports in the news nowadays that you are preparing to attack Iran. Yet the horrific outcome of a World War is right before you. In the last World War, whilst millions of other people were killed, the lives of hundreds of thousands of Jewish persons were also wasted. As the Prime Minister, it is your duty to protect the life of your nation. The current circumstances of the world indicate that a World War will not be fought between only two countries, rather blocs will come into formation. The threat of a World War breaking out is a very serious one. The life of Muslims, Christians and Jews are all at peril from it. If such a war occurs, it will result in a chain reaction of human destruction. The effects of this catastrophe will be felt by future generations, who will either be born disabled, or crippled. This is because undoubtedly, such a war will involve atomic warfare.

Hence, it is my request to you that instead of leading the world into the grip of a World War, make maximum efforts to save the world from a global catastrophe. Instead of resolving disputes with force, you should try to resolve them through dialogue, so that we can gift our future generations with a bright future rather than ‘gift’ them with disability and defects.

I shall try to elucidate my views based on the following passages from your teachings, the first extract being from the Zabur:

‘Do not fret because of evil-doers. Do not envy those who do wrong. For they shall soon be cut down like the grass, and wither like the green herb. Trust in God, and do good. Dwell in the land, and enjoy safe pasture. Also delight yourself in God, and he will give you the desires of your heart. Commit your way to God. Trust also in him, and he will do this: He will make your righteousness go forth as the dawn, and your justice as the noon day sun. Rest in God, and wait patiently for him. Do not fret because of him who prospers in his way, because of the man who makes wicked plots happen. Cease from anger, and forsake wrath. Do not fret, it leads only to evildoing. For evildoers shall be cut off, but those who wait for God shall inherit the land. For yet a little while, and the wicked will be no more. Yes, though you look for his place, he is not there. But the humble shall inherit the land, and shall delight themselves in the abundance of peace.’ (Zabur, 37:1-11)

Similarly, we find in the Torah:

‘Thou shalt not have in thy bag divers weights, a great and a small. Thou shalt not have in thine house divers measures, a great and a small.  [But] thou shalt have a perfect and just weight, a perfect and just measure shalt thou have: that thy days may be lengthened in the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee. For all that do such things, [and] all that do unrighteously, [are] an abomination unto the LORD thy God.’ (Deuteronomy, 25:13-16)

Thus, world leaders, and particularly you should terminate the notion of governance by force and should refrain from oppressing the weak. Instead, strive to spread and promote justice and peace. By doing so, you will remain in peace yourselves, you will gain strength and world peace will also be established.

It is my prayer that you and other world leaders understand my message, recognise your station and status and fulfil your responsibilities.

Yours Sincerely,

Letter to President of the Islamic Republic of Iran

His Excellency
President of the Islamic Republic of Iran
Mahmoud Ahmadinejad
Tehran

7 March 2012

Dear Mr President,

Assalamo Alaikum Wa Rahmatullahe Wa Barakatohu,

In light of the perilous state of affairs emerging in the world, I felt that it was essential for me to write to you, as you are the President of Iran, and thus you hold the authority to make decisions which will affect the future of your nation and the world at large. There is currently great agitation and restlessness in the world. In some areas small-scale wars have broken out, while in other places the superpowers act on the pretext of trying to bring about peace. Each country is engaged in activities to either help or oppose other countries, but the requirements of justice are not being fulfilled.  It is with regret that if we now observe the current circumstances of the world, we find that the foundation for another world war has already been laid. As so many countries, both large and small, have nuclear weapons, grudges and hostilities are increasing. In such a predicament, the Third World War looms almost certainly before us. As you are aware, the availability of nuclear weapons will mean that a Third World War will be an atomic war. Its ultimate result will be catastrophic, and the long term effects of such warfare could lead to future generations being born disabled or deformed.

It is my belief that as followers of the Holy Prophet Muhammad(pbuh), who was sent to establish peace in the world, and who was the Rahmatullil  Aalameen – the Mercy to all of Mankind –we do not and cannot desire for the world to suffer such a fate. This is why my request to you is that as Iran is also a significant power in the world, it should play its role to prevent a Third World War. It is undeniably true that the major powers act with double standards. Their injustices have caused restlessness and disorder to spread all across the world. However, we cannot ignore the fact that some Muslim groups act inappropriately, and contrary to the teachings of Islam. Major world powers have used this as a pretext to fulfil their vested interests by taking advantage of the poor Muslim countries. Thus, I request you once again, that you should focus all of your efforts and energies towards saving the world from a Third World War. The Holy Qur’an teaches Muslims that enmity against any nation should not hinder them from acting in a just manner. In Surah Al Mai’dah, Allah the Exalted instructs us:

“And let not the enmity of a people, that they hindered you from the Sacred Mosque, incite you to transgress. And help one another in righteousness and piety; but help not one another in sin and transgression. And fear Allah; surely, Allah is severe in punishment.” (Ch.5:V.3)

Similarly, in the same chapter of the Holy Qur’an we find the following commandment to Muslims:

“O ye who believe! Be steadfast in the cause of Allah, bearing witness in equity; and let not a people’s enmity incite you to act otherwise than with justice. Be always just, that is nearer to righteousness. And fear Allah. Surely, Allah is aware of what you do.”(Ch.5:V.9)

Hence, you should not oppose another nation merely out of enmity and hatred. I admit that Israel exceeds beyond its limits, and has its eyes cast glance upon Iran. Indeed, if any country transgresses against your country, naturally you have the right to defend yourself. However, as far as possible disputes should be resolved through diplomacy and negotiations. This is my humble request to you, that rather than using force, use dialogue to try and resolve conflicts. The reason why I make this request is because I am the follower of that Chosen Person of God who came in this era as the True Servant of the Holy Prophet Muhammad(pbuh), and who claimed to be the Promised Messiah and Imam Mahdi. His mission was to bring mankind closer to God and to establish the rights of people in the manner our Master and Guide, the Rahmatullil Aalameen –the Mercy to all of Mankind – the Holy Prophet(pbuh)demonstrated to us. May Allah the Exalted enable the Muslim Ummah to understand this beautiful teaching.

Wassalam,

Yours Sincerely,

 Summary of Letter to Prime Minister of Canada

 


In his letter of 8th March 2012 to Mr Stephen Harper, the Prime Minister of Canada, Hadhrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad(aba), Khalifatul Masih V, Head of the worldwide Ahmadiyya Muslim Community, similarly warned of the impending outbreak of a Third World War, and the horrific consequences that will ensue as a result. He mentioned that hostilities between nations, and injustices carried out by the major and minor powers, had already laid the foundation for a global catastrophe. He requested the Prime Minster to use his authority to help bring about peace in the world through purely peaceful means, rather than by the use of force. His Holiness wrote:

“Canada is widely considered to be one of the most just countries in the world. Your nation does not normally interfere in the internal problems of other countries. Further, we, the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community, have special ties of friendship with the people of Canada. Thus, I request you to strive to your utmost to prevent the major and minor powers from leading us into a devastating Third World War.”

Letter to President of the United States of America

President Barack Obama
President of the United States of America
The White House

Washington D.C.

8 March 2012

Dear Mr President,

In light of the perturbing state of affairs developing in the world, I felt that it was necessary for me to write to you, as you are the President of the United States of America, a country which is a world superpower, and thus you hold the authority to make decisions which will affect the future of your nation and the world at large.

There is currently great agitation and restlessness in the world. Small-scale wars have broken out in certain areas. Unfortunately, the superpowers have not been as successful as was anticipated in their efforts to establish peace in these conflict-hit regions. Globally, we find that almost every country is engaged in activities to either support, or oppose other countries; however, the requirements of justice are not being fulfilled.  It is with regret that if we now observe the current circumstances of the world, we find that the foundation for another world war has already been laid. As so many countries, both large and small, have nuclear weapons, grudges and hostilities are increasing between nations. In such a predicament, the Third World War looms almost certainly before us. Such a war would surely involve atomic warfare; and therefore, we are witnessing the world head towards a terrifying destruction. If a path of equity and justice had been followed after the Second World War, we would not be witnessing the current state of the world today whereby it has become engulfed in the flames of war once again.

As we are all aware, the main causes that led to the Second World War were the failure of League of Nations and the economic crisis, which began in 1932. Today, leading economists state that there are numerous parallels between the current economic crisis and that of 1932. We observe that political and economic problems have once again led to wars between smaller nations, and to internal discord and discontentment becoming rife within these countries. This will ultimately result in certain powers emerging to the helm of government, who will lead us to a world war. If in the smaller countries conflicts cannot be resolved through politics or diplomacy, it will lead to new blocs and groupings to form in the world. This will be the precursor for the outbreak of a Third World War. Hence, I believe that now, rather than focusing on the progress of the world, it is more important and indeed essential, that we urgently increase our efforts to save the world from this destruction. There is an urgent need for mankind to recognise its One God, Who is our Creator, as this is the only guarantor for the survival of humanity; otherwise, the world will continue to rapidly head towards self-destruction.

My request to you, and indeed to all world leaders, is that instead of using force to suppress other nations, use diplomacy, dialogue and wisdom. The major powers of the world, such as the United States, should play their role towards establishing peace. They should not use the acts of smaller countries as a pretext to disturb world harmony. Currently, nuclear arms are not only possessed by the United States and other major powers; rather, even relatively smaller countries now possess such weapons of mass destruction, where those who are in power are often trigger-happy leaders who act without thought or consideration. Thus, it is my humble request to you to strive to your utmost to prevent the major and minor powers from erupting into a Third World War. There should be no doubt in our minds that if we fail in this task then the effects and aftermath of such a war will not be limited to only the poor countries of Asia, Europe and the Americas; rather, our future generations will have to bear the horrific consequences of our actions and children everywhere in the world will be born disabled or deformed. They will never forgive their elders who led the world to a global catastrophe. Instead of being concerned for only our vested interests, we should consider our coming generations and strive to create a brighter future for them. May God the Exalted enable you, and all world leaders, to comprehend this message.

Yours Sincerely,

MIRZA MASROOR AHMAD

  7. Respected workers of the Review of Religions,

    Asalamo Alaikum warahmatullah wabarakatahoo

    It is the unequal Grace of Allah that He has blessed us with the institution of Khilafat. Alhamdolillah. If it were not for this blessing, I wonder who would have the love of entire humanity at heart to call the attention of the great leaders of our contemporary world to their responsibilities of establishing peace and harmony in the world? I pray to Allah the Almighty to never cease to be the Strengthener, Helper and Ever Supporter of our Beloved Khalifatul Masih. Ameen. May these leaders hearken to the holy voice and words of the only Khalifa of God on earth. May we all benefit from the blessings of the letters. Ameen thumma Ameen.

  8. May Allah(Swt) be praised for establishing for us, Khilafat. The world leaders should hearken to this message of His Holiness so that mankind may be saved from another world war. I pray Allah(Swt) touches their hearts. Ameen.

  9. Asalamo Alaikum warahmatullah wabarakatahoo,

    May Allah bless Hudhur(aba) and his words. May Allah help every world leader to make wise decisions for their nation and other nations. May Allah bless my Jama’at and everyone in the world, whoever is making their best efforts for mankind. Ameen

    Love for all Hatred for None

  10. I pray that Allah let these countries hear and accept the truth. Good warning . Kudos to Hudhur(aba) and to the Ahmadiyya Muslim Jama’at worldwide.

  11. Asalamo Alaikum Warahmatullah,

    Alhamdolillah that I am a born Ahmadi Muslim and so so thankful to Allah, but I can’t ever be so thankful. May Allah forgive my sins. Of all His blessings upon me and us is that He gave us this unprecedented blessing of Khilafat. Alhamdolillah ala Zalik.

    May peace and blessings of Allah be upon our Holy Prophet Muhammad(saw), his true Promised Messiah Hadhrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad Qadiani(as), the Khulafa-e-Rashideen and Khalifatul Masih. Ameen.

    May we be among those who really serve Islam under the blessed guidance of our beloved caliph Hadhrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad, Khalifatul Masih al Khamis(aba), and may Allah bestow His uncountable blessings upon him as always and also upon us. Ameen.

  12. It is my sincere wish that these so called world leaders listen to the Divine call coming to them through our beloved Khalifa so that mankind could find Divine forgiveness from the One and Only Creator of the universe.

  13. His Holiness is really a manifestation of a spiritual leader of the people who are filled with peace, love, and blessings.

  15. May the world be saved from the calamities of the Third World war. Ameen. The Khalifa(aba) had delivered God’s message to the world leaders; let those who have ears hear and tread the path of equity, justice and fair play to ensure world peace. Long live Hadhrat Ameerul Momineen.Ameen.

  16. Truly remarkable letters

    It is a blessing for this world that we have amongst us a man who is so concerned about world peace. Very interestingly he has pointed out verses of various religious books to show that all religions in essence are all about peace and justice.

  17. This is known as true leadership. I firmly believe that no one in the world has shown such concern. This is the difference between Hadhrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad(aba) and other so called leaders.
    Tariq Mehmood

  18. JazakAllah

    Love for all Hatred for None

  19. I too have done exactly the same. I have contacted every world leader on the planet and also several other iconic people in a hope to pursue the same goals as yourself. People like yourself are a beacon of light and its just a shame that there are not more of you around.

  20. Asallamu allaikum, l’m highly enthused in Huzur’s letters. May Allah guide him through. Love for all, hatred for none. GHANA

  21. Asslamo aleikum

    It is indeed a great blessing that Ahmadi Muslims have a Caliph who guides them.
    May Allah the Exalted enable all people to recognize this blessing.

    Love for ALL Hatred for NONE
