Once a Christian said that the Asian mind was incapable of understanding the mystery of Trinity. Hazrat Maulana replied, indeed. That is why Jesus, Peter, and Paul, all three Asians did not figure this out either.
A philosopher once asked him, what is wisdom? Hazrat Maulana replied, wisdom is to avoid every type of vice, from associating partners with Allah down to the least impolite behavior.
Someone inquired from Sir Syed Ahmad Khan (d1898), a social reformer and famous educator of India: When an illiterate person studies he becomes an educated person, the educated person studies further and becomes a Hakim (philosopher), the Hakim progresses in his knowledge and reaches the status of a Soofi (mystic). What becomes of the Soofi when he attains the highest stage of knowledge? Sir Syed wrote back: “He is transformed into Noor al-Din (light of faith)”.
To sum up his life, he made crystal clear the role and significance of exalted office of the Caliphate. Owing to his towering personality, a good majority of the members has steadfastly remained loyal to the institution of the Ahmadiyya Caliphate. alhamdo li-Allah
Such was Noor al-Din, a shining light of faith.
