God Consciousness and Unity of Allah

Sermon Delivered by Hadhrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad at Head of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community. May 3rd, 2013

 

  

Verses Cited in this Friday Sermon:

Synopsis:

  • God has made Taqwa (righteousness) a basic condition for a believer. Countless verses of the Holy Qur’an give various commandments to adopt it and maintain/uphold it. The Qur’an has called those who follow these commandments as Muttaqi (righteous) and has warned those who do not practice them about their ending.
  • Ahmadis are fortunate that among those who believe in this age, it is they whose attention has been drawn in fine detail to connect to God. It is a favour of the Promised Messiah(as) on us that he has repeatedly shown us the path to those high stations which bring nearness to God. Certainly, each person has different level of piety, insight, perception etc. This is why it is commanded that everyone should try to the best of their individual capacity to fulfil the pledge made to God.
  • Alcohol, gambling, lewd films on the internet, improper friendships in these countries cause families to break up. They also put young people on the wrong path, even lead them astray from belief in existence of God and they end up becoming malignant for society. God has stated that one’s every limb, every faculty and every thought should be used in accordance with what God enjoins and at the proper occasion and this enhances one in Taqwa.
  • The first of the two verses recited at the start is among the verses which are read at Nikah. It draws attention to future life as well as the next generation enhancing in piety because pious children are a source of God’s pleasure. Pious children not only adorn their own ending they also elevate their parents’ station in the Hereafter by praying for them. God states here that it should be remembered at the time of marriage that the attractions, comforts and enjoyment of this world are temporary things.
  • With God’s grace, we experience many blessings of God in our capacity as a Jama’at as well as we progress as a community. We also witness God’s special treatment with the Jama’at that how He takes us out of the enemy’s snare in critical times. A good number of members of Jama’at abide by Taqwa and seek pleasure of God. Yet, we should always try that after taking Bai’at we attain that standard of Taqwa which befits a true Muslim and which the Promised Messiah(as) expected of us.
  • Promised Messiah(as) said: Unity of God (Tawheed) does not signify that one utters the words La ilaha illalla (There is none worthy of worship except Allah) while having thousands of idols in heart. In fact, a person who gives any of his own work, trick, deception or plan God-like importance or relies on a person as only God should be relied on or gives his own self the kind of importance which should be given to God, according to God he is an idolater in all these instances.
