Importance of Promised Messiah's books
Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad, the Promised Messiah and Mahdi(as), was raised in this Age to reform the world at large. The Holy Prophet Muhammad (saw) had called him the Hakm and Adl. He had said that even if the Faith would have gone to Pleiades, he would bring it back. Indeed, he was to establish the Law of God and revive His noble religion. This, he did, along with other things, through his writings and discourses on various occasions.
Promised Messiah (AS) states in his book Fateh-Islam:
‘O, He the Most Wise, Most Powerful, let this workshop come into being by sending this humble one to undertake this work of reforming mankind. This workshop He had divided into several branches, all devoted to the dissemination of truth, the propagation of Islam. Of these branches one branch is concerned with the preparation of books, one of the tasks assigned to this humble one. To perform this task I have been gifted with special knowledge. Knowledge which is not within man’s capacity, which can be acquired only by the Help of God, which comes not of human effort but through the Holy Spirit. Instruction by the Holy Spirit has dissolved our difficulties’.
(Victory of Islam Page 10)
Hazrat Musleh Maud (RA) while talking about the importance of reading books of Promised Messiah states:
Read the books of the Promised Messiah (as) as God granted the Promised Messiah (as) Special knowledge. (The Promised Messiah (as)) says that every Prophet is given the use of particular weapons. And that my weapon is the Holy Quran. Therefore the books of the Promised Messiah (as) are an unequalled commentary of the Holy Quran.
And we have entered into the battlefield with satan. But if we enter this battlefield without any weapons then imagine how dangerous this situation will be for us. It is therefore essential for us, that we have in our hands an extremely sharp and powerful sword and that sword is the books of the promised Messiah.
In reality that sword is the Holy Quran, but as the books of the Promised Messiah are a commentary of the Holy Quran, they also serve as a sword (in the fight against satan). Therefore read the Holy Quran, and to understand it, remember the books of the Promised Messiah (as). These books are such an amazing national weapon in your hand that Satan will run away even at the mere sight of them.’
(Al-Fazl 22nd January 1920)

MTA International is the television wing of our Ahmadiyya jama’at. Centrally it is managed with both quality and content. Alongside MTA International, its various studios around the world contribute to the programmes broadcast on this channel.
MTA has been established in most countries such as MTA Germany, MTA France, Africa, USA etc…
Therefore MTA UK is the desk that has been established in this country and we all come under the umbrella of MTA International. The differences between us and other countries is that we are based in the same country as MTA International, and in many ways we have more advantages due to being based right under the physical guidance of Khilafat. This should motivate and inspire us to want to try our every best to serve the Jama’at as much as possible.
The Lajna MTA UK team also has a part in making appropriate and interesting programmes for our international channel. We are open to different ideas for programmes, as long as they are appropriate and approval can be received for them; we are able to make all sorts of programmes. If anyone is interested with ideas, or has skills that can be of benefit for MTA UK then please email to email@example.com with your information.
