Synopsis: English

What was it that the people of that time not believe in which agonised the Holy Prophet(saw)? They did not believe in desisting from associating partners with God, in making man son of God. Shirk or associating partners with God is a sin which God has called unpardonable. It is love and compassion for every human being, even for an idolater, with which one makes practical effort to bring them to the right path and also pray for them.

Hazrat Khalifatul Masih said that some time ago he felt that the workers and management of Humanity First had the idea that if they gave their services unconnected with faith, perhaps the world would appreciate them more. Huzoor explained to the central management here that their significance was in being connected to faith and the Jama’at is mentioned in their works somehow or the other. And there was nothing wrong to, if need be, mention the Jama’at in some instances.
In the world slogans are raised to have mottos about moral development, slogans are raised to have mottos about academic development and if human rights are violated somewhere political organisations make freedom their motto and make efforts in this regards and raise slogans. Any other specific situation elsewhere gives rise to specific mottos. The reason to have a motto is to establish it in the world and to also keep it in view at the same time.

Hazrat Musleh Maud(ra) said that some mottos are inter-connected. For example the mottos ‘obey God’ and ‘advance in virtues’ are interdependent because obedience of God is not possible without advancing in virtues and one who is not virtuous cannot be obedient to God. Similarly the mottos ‘I shall give precedence to faith over worldly matters’ and ‘I shall try and excel in good works’ are congruous and inter-linked. Thus, all virtues are good and we should try and adopt them.

When someone becomes spiritually weak it is because he has lost sight of لا الہ الا اللہ because if one always keeps لا الہ الا اللہ in view one is saved from spiritual weaknesses. The objective is not to simply verbalise لا الہ الا اللہ like many people do, even if they tell lies they do so by saying لا الہ الا اللہ whereas articulating لا الہ الا اللہ brings into focus God’s greatness and His fear and all His attributes. And as mentioned earlier the reality of لا الہ الا اللہ is only manifested through the Holy Prophet(saw).

Through abiding by Unity of God high morals, knowledge, culture, politics and excellence in other arts are instilled in man because the light of God is an antidote to all ailments. Thus, our motto which is appointed by God is لا الہ الا اللہ (There is none worthy of worship except Allah) the rest are all details which can be useful as advice. Dajjal is evident in full force in this age and his objective is to give precedence to worldly matters over faith.
