Foundations

  1. Regarding the death of Sahibzada Mirza Ghulam Ahmad, Huzoor said: May Allah the Almighty elevate his status. He has departed to go to a place where each one of us will go at the appointed time. However, fortunate are those who spend their lives striving to attain the pleasure of God Almighty. May Allah the Almighty elevate his status and enable his children to continue his virtuous deeds. (February 9, 2018).
  2. God has used the word ‘justice’ at a place in the beginning of this verse (i.e., Ch 4: Verse 136) and ‘equity’ at another place, which means equality, complete justice, and high moral standard, being absolutely clear of any bias, and working without influence and [without] bending on one side. Now, all of us need to examine if we decide our dealings by keeping the aforesaid matters in perspective. (November 25, 2016).
  3. The world can question us that though we don’t have governance jurisdictions, we have a communal system. You are a community. You claim to rise up and sit down at a single command. You interact in economic and social matters. Do you settle your deals according to these standards of justice and honesty? (November 25, 2016).
  4. Some people are materialistic or they do things imitating others which are against the traditions of the Jama’at and teachings of Islam. Officeholders can also be these kind of people. Once, a local anjuman in Qadian published a form and started selling it to people for a few pennies. Advising people of Jama’at at the time, Hazrat Musleh Mau’ud (may Allah be pleased with him) said that they should follow the Shariah and the Holy Prophet (sa) in everything, and they should follow the Promised Messiah (as). (April 1, 2016).
  5. Be mindful that falsehood is not used in asylum applications. Certainly, lawyers have always incited such practices, as the Promised Messiah (as) also said. Officeholders should also self-reflect whether they report falsely. (February 5, 2016).
  6. Teachers of the Holy Qur’an should teach it in a manner that instills its love and eagerness to learn it … The main objective is not to recite the Qur’an like a qari; of course, it is important to continue to read the Qur’an in an improved way, but it is not right to simply stop reading it just because we cannot pronounce some letters. What we should do is attempt to make our pronunciation as close as possible to the original and continue to improve ourselves … Islam has to win the hearts of all ethnicities and make them familiar with the Word of God; in fact, instill its love in hearts. However, people read it [the Holy Qur’an] with their own accents and owing to love for the Qur’an, everyone tries to read it in the best way possible. Indeed, attention should be given to read it thoughtfully and properly, and those who know the correct pronunciation should help others rather than ridicule them. (July 31, 2015).
  7. Missionaries and officeholders should also repeatedly advise against falsehood. It should be repeatedly mentioned that there is no such thing as small or big sin. Sin is sin, and it should be avoided. Every falsehood is falsehood and this Shirk (to associate partners with God) should be avoided. If one’s connection with God is strong, there is no need to worry – signs will manifest themselves. Those who advice others should also remember that they themselves should be ever in search of higher levels of strength of resolve and, in practical terms there should be uniformity between their word and deed. (January 24, 2014).
  8. I also want to remind the missionaries that they, too, should discharge their responsibilities and one of these responsibilities is that they should arrange to teach the Holy Quran in the Jama’ats. If they are on a tour of the Jama’ats, they should try to train such teachers who could teach the members the Holy Quran. These classes must take place regularly, once or twice a week is not sufficient; at Maghrib or Isha, these classes can take place. (August 16, 2013).
  9. Once we begin to ascertain high standards of worship of God, it would be natural for us to be fair to each other … it is impossible for a sincere worshipper of God to be unjust to fellow humans. [Citing a reference from Promised Messiah (as), Huzoor said] we need to be exemplary towards each other in gentleness, love, humility and compassion. One who does not have love and humility for his brother, who is not kind to his wife and children, spouses who do not pay each other’s dues and officeholders who take undue advantage of their position are all devoid of righteousness. (June 24, 2005).
