Al NoorMonthly Newsletter of Majlis Khuddamul Ahmadiyya Inner ParkThe Holy Qur’anIn the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Ever Merciful2. Whatever is in the heavens and whateveris in the earth glorifies Allah, theSovereign, the Holy, the Mighty, theWise.بِسْمِ‏ هللاِ‏ الرَّحْ‏ مَٰنِ‏ الرَّحِيمِ‏(Ch. 62: V. 2)HadithO Allah, bless Muhammad and his people, as You did bless Ibrahim and his people—You are indeed the Praiseworthy, the Exalted.O Allah, prosper Muhammad and his people, as You did prosper Ibrahim and his people—You are indeed the Praiseworthy, the Exalted.Ḥaḍrat Abu Huraira narrates: We were sitting with the Holy Prophet whenSurah Al-Jumu‘ah was revealed to him. After the verse, “And He has sent him (Muḥammad) also toother (Muslims).....’ (62:4) was recited by the Prophet, a man asked, “Who are they, O Allah’sApostle?” The Prophet (pbuh) did not reply till he repeated his question three times. At that time,Salman al-Farsi was with us. Allah’s Apostle (pbuh) put his hand on Salman, saying, “Even if faithwere at [the place of] al-Thuraiyya (Pleiades), even then a man from these people would attain it.”(Bukharu)Writings of the Promised Messiah (as)I have repeatedly explained that the words I recite are certainly and absolutely thewords of God, as the Holy Qur’an and the Torah are the word of God, and I am aProphet of God by way of reflection. And that it is obligatory for each and every Muslimto obey me in religious matters, and to accept me as the Promised Messiah. Everyperson to whom my call has reached, even if he be a Muslim, and does not accept meas his Ḥakam and does not accept me as being the Promised Messiah and does notesteem the revelation that is vouchsafed to me as coming from God, [then he] is accountablein heaven, for he has rejected that which he had to accept at its time. I donot merely say that had I been an impostor I would have been destroyed, but I alsoaffirm that like Moses (as), Jesus (as), David (as) and the Holy Prophet (pbuh), I amtrue [in my claim]. God has exhibited more than ten thousand signs for my verification.The Holy Qur’an bears witness for me and so does the Holy Prophet (pbuh).(Tuḥfat-un-Nadwah, Ruḥani Khaza’in, Vol. 19, pg. 95-96 )Al Noor Newsletter 2

Al NoorMonthly Newsletter of Majlis Khuddamul Ahmadiyya Inner ParkINNER PARK ACTIVITIESInner Park’s Journey of the IPL 2011/12After a disappointing campaign in the first IPL Season, where Inner Park couldn’tprogress from the group stage, the team set a target to reach the next stage this time. Butonce again, Jamia A was in our group. In the first season, Inner Park lost to Jamia A teamby 9-2.This season, it was worse. End Result was 16-0 for Jamia A.But the boys returned and beat West Croydon by 19-1. In the final match, the winnerwould progress to the next stage. Redbridge North was a strong opponent, but wemanaged to beat them 4-1 and this meant, Inner Park qualified for the next group stagefor the first time.Here, in the first match, all was going well. Inner Park was up 3-0 at half time. Howeverin the second half, Barking fought back and came as close as 3-3. The match was heading to the final whistle, when Inner Park eventuallygot a chance, and converted it to 4-3, just seconds before the final whistle.The second match was against Hounslow North. The team had bad memories from last season. To recall what happened, Inner Park andHounslow had to win in 2010/11 Season to progress to the quarter finals, but only one team could go through. In that match, our team washumiliated 13-2. This year, it was a much harder contest. After the first half, the score was 1-1. In the second half, the opponents fromHounslow North put more pressure on our defense and were rewared with 3 more goals. The result: 4-1 defeat for us.The final match again was a decisive match. Inner Park had to win to book a place in the Quarter-finals. A strong display from our side beatfellow Qiadat (of Masroor Region) Raynes Park with 4-1. Only two weeks ago, our team lost in the final of Regional Ijtema to RaynesPark.Inner Park was hoping now to get a bit of luck in the draws. However, this was not the case, as we were drawn Jamia B for the quarterfinalsmatch. They played with a high intensity pressing game throughout the tournament and in some matches, were even better than theirA Team. The match was probably one of the best games of the season, and for Inner Park by performance the best. After the final whistle,the score of this match was 3-3, which meant it had to be decided on penalties. Here, the opponents scored all three shots, whereas here wescored two shots and one missed the target narrowly. It was disappointment at this stage. But comparing it with last year, this year wasmuch better and exceeded the expectations.Inner Park who took a hammering in the group stages by Jamia A, recovered to push Jamia B to penalties in the quarters.It was a successful year for this young team.Inner Park created many video virals on various topics andevents. All virals were uploaded on youtube and also on Khuddamwebsite.
