Celebrating 107 years of Peace-Loving Khilafat.

The Ahmadiyya Muslim Community is celebrating the re-establishment of Khilafat or Successorship in Islam on May 27th affectionately called Khilafat Day.

Not the recent fabricated and frankly barbaric Caliphate of ISIS' leader, but the reemergence of true Islamic Khilafat which occurred over a century ago in Ahmadiyyat after the demise of its messianic founder which is still championing a unifying leadership today. A continuation of the rightly guided Caliphate that succeeded Prophet Muhammad, the objective of Khalifat in Islam Ahmadiyyat is to raise awareness of the real peace-loving teachings of Islam in bold contrast to the impostor Caliph, Abu Bakr Al Baghdadi, the truly anti-Islamic leader.

"Our mission is to change the world. If not this generation, then the coming generations will see it. We will not give up our task of ending all forms of cruelty and extremism, and ultimately saving the world from destruction," proclaims the worldwide Khalifa of Islam Ahmadiyya, Mirza Masroor Ahmad.

Monday was the hottest day of the season in New Delhi when high temps in parts of the city touched 114 degrees Fahrenheit.

According to The Times of India (TOI), this was the second highest May temperature in the capital in more than a decade.

The report blamed Pakistan for sending the extreme weather, which the paper says, will continue for several more days - before Mari Amman ("Mother Mari") - the goddess of rain - will send some relief.

TOI said, quoting Met officials, the heat transfer from south Pakistan through westerly winds is responsible for New Delhi's heatwave.

"Super-hot winds from Pakistan are giving a killer edge to the heat wave which has claimed more than 500 lives across India," the newspaper claimed. "The loo blowing across most of north India is transporting this heat from Sindh into this region."

"In Sindh, temperatures have shot up to 49, even 50 degrees, said one Met official according to the newspaper. "Westerly winds are bringing with them this extreme, dry heat through a process called advection (transport)."
