Synopsis:

The Promised Messiah(as) said: ‘When prayers are made with complete devotion to God they bring about extraordinary effect. It should be remembered that acceptance of prayers is by God alone and there is an appointed time for prayers. Just as morning is a special time and the distinction of morning is not shared by any other hour. Similarly, there are certain times which generate acceptance and effect in prayer.’

Hadhrat Khalifatul Masih said the citation of these extracts of the Promised Messiah(as) is to inculcate further insight into connecting to God, to acquire ways and means of prayer and to be drawn to reformation and good works. So that we may adopt the correct way to pray and be among those who get a measure of ‘Hasana’ (good) in this world as well as the next world.
Hadhrat Khalifatul Masih said that if we wish to connect to God, see fulfilment of our good wishes and witness our enemy defeated then we need to try and become true Abid. May God enable each one of us to do so. Today our enemies are those whose enmity, rancour and malice for the Promised Messiah(as) has exceeded bounds. This situation is mostly in Pakistan but also in parts of India and the influence has also reached areas in Africa.

We have seen the ending of our enemies in the past and we are also witnessing it today. In Pakistan, those who were extremely abusive about the Promised Messiah(as) have been seized by God in such a manner that it has been a means of deterrent. Those who can see are observing that in Pakistan, without naming specifics, God has seized those who committed such rudeness.
Hadhrat Khalifatul Masih said that he wished to say to Ahmadis not to be troubled by what the enemy is up to. An Ahmadi recently wrote to him that the enmity against the Promised Messiah(as) is so intense that the opponents commit every possible vulgarity in this regard. They deface the Promised Messiah’s(as) photograph or demean it in other ways and it is unbearable. The Ahmadis feel as if their hearts would burst.

The Promised Messiah(sa) said: ‘During the interval between a supplication and its acceptance one is often subjected to trial after trial, some of which are back-breaking. A persevering and good natured supplicant smells the perfume of the favours of his Lord in these trials and difficulties and his intelligence informs him that they will be followed by help. One aspect of these trials is that they foster eagerness for prayer.

We should not worry that the cruelty of our opponents will deter us from our task or will hinder our progress. Indeed, God is granting us progress and advancement. Not only that, by illustrating what it will be like in the next life as regards His beloveds and their opponents in the Holy Qur’an, God has bestowed tranquillity on us. The verses recited at the start of the sermon draw a clear and distinct illustration of the ending of the oppressors in the next life. This is an illustration of those people who mistreat one sent by God.

Verses Cited in this Friday Sermon: 25:78 40:61 12:95

Satan has no absolute power on humans

December 12, 2011

It is a wrong concept to believe that Satan or devil has absolute power on the human beings; one should see the following verse:

[14:23] And when the matter is decided, Satan will say, ‘Allah promised you a promise of truth, but I promised you and failed you. And I had no power over you except that I called you and you obeyed me. So blame me not, but blame your own selves. I cannot succour you nor can you succour me. I have already disclaimed your associating me with God. For the wrongdoers there shall, surely, be a grievous punishment.’

The True Book from God – the Creator, is logically the one which conforms to His law of nature, and the true Divine Word is that which does not contradict His action

May 11, 2009

~It is not true that God’s Action as mentioned in the Bible should point to one thing and His word to another

Mirza Ghulam Ahmad 1835-1908, the Promised Messiah, the Second Coming says:

This is what Allah teaches us in the Holy Quran:
‘The recompense of an injury is an injury the like thereof;
but whoso forgives and his act brings about reformation,15
his reward is with Allah.’
This is the teaching of the Holy Quran. The Gospel, on
the other hand, teaches unconditional forgiveness at all
times, and thus tramples upon all sense of expediency on
which the social structure is based. It only emphasizes the
growth of one branch of the ‘tree’ of human ethics, and
completely disregards all the others.

But, strangely enough, Jesus (as) did not act upon his own
moral teachings. He cursed the fig tree when he found it
to be barren, while he exhorted others to pray. And while
he taught others not to call anyone a fool, he himself went
to the extent of calling the Jewish elders misbegotten,
hurling abuses at them in every sermon and calling them
foul names. A teacher of morals must first exhibit those
morals in himself. Could such a flawed teaching, which
Jesus (as) himself did not follow, be from God?

The only pure and perfect teaching is that of the Holy
Quran, which nourishes all human faculties. It does not
emphasize any one aspect, rather it teaches a judicious
exercise of both forgiveness and chastisement. In truth,
the Holy Quran is a reflection of the Divine law of nature
which we witness all around us. It stands to reason that
there should be harmony between God’s word and action.
The action of God, as we see it in this world, must necessarily
be the basis for the word of God contained in His
True Book—not that His Action should point to one thing
and His word to another. With regard to His action, we
observe that forgiveness is by no means the rule, and that
He also inflicts upon the wrongdoers various kinds of
punishments, which have been mentioned in earlier scriptures
as well. Our God is not only Forbearing, but He is
also most severe in His wrath.

The True Book, therefore,
is the one which conforms to His law of nature, and the
true Divine Word is that which does not contradict His
action. We have never observed God to be continually
forbearing and forgiving towards His creatures and never
punishing them. Even today God has warned the wicked
people through me and has told of a powerful and terrible
earthquake which will destroy them; and the plague has
not yet subsided either. Do you not remember what happened
to the people of Noah (as) and what befell the nation
of Lot (as)?

Do understand that the essence of the Shariah is
, which means to adopt the attributes of the
Exalted and Glorious God. This is the highest perfection a
soul can attain. The desire to acquire morals greater than
God’s, is sheer blasphemy, and amounts to an attack on
His holy attributes.
You should also consider that it is God’s eternal and established
law that He forgives in response to repentance
and penitence, and hears the prayers of His righteous servants
which are offered by way of intercession.

Foot Notes:

14 Al-Shura, 42:41 [Publishers]
15 The Holy Quran does not approve of that forgiveness which serves no
good purpose, for it only corrupts human morals and creates disorder in
society. The Holy Quran only sanctions that forgiveness which results in
reformation. [Author]
