Just a quick passing post!
Please take a few seconds to read over the following Ahadith, regarding the Latter Days in the time of the Messiah (who I believe to be Hadhrat Isa (AS), but that's neither here nor there):
"Earth will turn like a silver tray, growing vegetation as it did in the time of Adam (PBUH) so much so that a group of people will eat a bunch of grapes and it will satiate them; a group of people will eat a single pomegranate and it will satiate them; the bull will be sold for a lot of money; and a horse will cost only a few dirhams." The audience asked: "God's messenger, why will a horse be so cheap?" He replied: "It will not be used as a mount for fighting." He was asked: "Why will a bull be so expensive?" He replied: "The whole land would be tilled." (Ibn Majah)
"Then Earth will be told to bring forth its fruit and restore its blessing. As a result thereof, there would grow [such a large] pomegranate that a group of people will be able to eat it and seek shelter under its skin. A milk cow will give so much milk that a whole party will able to drink. A milk camel will give such [a large quantity of] milk that the whole tribe will be able to drink out of it, and a milk sheep will give so much milk that the whole family will able to drink out of that…." (Sahih Muslim)
"During this (period), my ummah (people) will lead a kind of comfortable and carefree life that they have never known before. (The land) will bring forth its yield and will not hold anything back." (Ibn Majah)
As per Ahadith, we can safely assume that in the time of the Messiah, whoever he may be, there will be great abundance and people of the Ummah will want for nothing! It is reported in Hadith that there will even come a time when a man will walk around offering alms, but no one will take it as there would be no need for it (can't remember where I read this now)!
The Ahmadis believe the Messiah has been and gone. They believe he came in the form of Mirza Ghulam Qadiani (there have been hundreds of claimants of this type, might I add), and that he has fulfilled his 'obligations' as the Messiah and he was successful on his mission!
Anyone care to explain why it is that the Khalifa of the Ahmadis and Khalifa in Waiting of the Muslim Ummah has told Ahmadis world over to start stockpiling food and 'essential goods' in the event that there is a mass food shortage, as a result of the economic crisis and tensions throughout the political/religious world! Its no joke guys, the Ahmadis are taking it so seriously that this is now being sent out GLOBALLY:
Suggested List of Items for Stocking
- Wheat flour
- Different types of grains including pulses (daal)
- Dried fruits and Nuts like Dates, raisins, peanuts and almonds
- Cooking Oil, Salt & Spices
- Canned food like Vegetables, Tuna Fish, cheese etc.
- Camping stove - Kerosene cooking stove and 180 litres of fuel
- Dry batteries
- First Aid Kit
- Personal Hygiene Items
- Supply of Medicines & Vitamins
- Flashlights/Light sticks & Torches
- Batteries (all sizes)
- Charcoal, Lighter Fluid
- Matches "Strike Anywhere" preferred
- Seasoned Firewood

- Water Filters/Purifiers
- Paper plates/cups/utensils (stock up, folks)
- Bicycles...Tires/tubes/pumps/chains, etc.
- Walkie Talkies (Ham Radio)
- Plastic Tapes, Ropes and ties
Ahmadis world over are stocking up on these essentials, as per the instructions of Mirza Masroor.
Errr...Mas...in the time of the Messiah was food not meant to be readily available for all? Was there not to be an abundance of food? Mirza Ghulam Qadiani aka The Promised Messiah has been and gone, so why are you worrying about 'food shortages'? Haven't you read the hadith before? Shouldn't you have put 2 and 2 together by now and seriously questioned why Mirza Ghulam Qadiani failed to bring with him all these riches and endless supply of food and water?
Above all else... LOL at the above list! The Ahmadiyya Jamaat has well and truly lost the plot! When I was emailed this by some loopy local Qaid, I just had to share this with you all! Anyone would think the Ahmadis are preparing for the Blitz! LOL...get a grip.com and understand your Messiah was a fraud and understand that Mas talks complete and utter nonsense! He has no real weight in the world and has no real input besides dictating if you should have facebook or not, so he has now decided to scare people into thinking somethings about to kick off, and of course, his followers will believe anything! Well I guess he does have Allah on direct dial, doesn't he? Stop in your tracks and take a look at the list with your Logical Ray-Bans on and then take a look at the authentic Ahadith! Come on now...aren't you the least bit embarrassed by Masroor and his stupid suggestions, despite him claiming to be 'Khalifatul Massih' (Khalifa of the Messiah), who should have seen an end to world poverty and problems by now??
Love this list and the lunacy of the Jamaat!
