Synopsis:
  • The Promised Messiah(as) has said that, if the condition of the faith of Muslims had not become so awful, there would have been no need for my coming. They [muslims] think that they are not missing anything since they already say the Kalima, offer the prayers and keep the fasts. However, let me tell you, their actions are not pious (Saliha) actions; otherwise, why would they not experience the spiritual rewards of their actions?
  • Huzoor Anwar (aa) said that today we see Muslims engulfed in disorder and killing each other. They use religion for their political agendas. This is certainly against the teachings of the Holy Qur’an. Hazrat Aisha (ra) has said that the morals of the Holy Prophet (sa) were exactly the teachings of the Holy Qur’an. Therefore, we need to read and study the Holy Qur’an as this is also part of the conditions of Bai‘at.
  • The purpose of the Promised Messiah’s (as) coming was to give a true understanding of the Holy Qur’an and the character of the Holy Prophet (saw) to this world. Now, this is the only way for Muslims. If they want to safeguard themselves and maintain peace in their countries, it is vital that they follow the teachings of true Islam in this age.
  • The Promised Messiah (as) has said that mutual fighting exists among Muslims due to love of this world. If they were true Muslims, they would easily have understood which party among the Muslims put forth the best teachings. But people give precedence to this world over love of Allah and His Messenger (saw).
  • Huzoor Anwar (aa) said that the condition of Muslims is such that, not only are they fighting each other, but are joining other nations to devise plans against each other. A few days ago, the American President gave a strict statement against Iran hinting at withdrawal from the deal. The whole world condemned this statement except three countries; USA, Israel and Saudi Arabia. Muslims are in this condition due to moving away from the essence of Islam.
  • The Promised Messiah (as) has said that no one can achieve true righteousness without completely following the Holy Prophet (saw), as Allah has clearly stated in the Holy Qur’an. In this age, I am the living proof of this. Huzoor Anwar (aa) said that those who level false charges against the Promised Messiah (as) should ponder the fact that whatever he has achieved is because of his perfect obedience and subordination to the Holy Prophet (saw).
  • The Promised Messiah (as) has said that in order to meet God Almighty, we require a means of approach. This source or means of approach is the Holy Prophet (saw). Whoever leaves him will never attain success. If you want to achieve the blessings associated with the Holy Prophet (sa), become his servant and lose yourself in his obedience. The way to please Allah is to follow the Holy Prophet (saw). As a result, He will love you and forgive your sins.
  • In this age, it is the Promised Messiah (as) who truly defended the honor of Islam. Even various non-Ahmadi scholars have accepted this reality. He defended Muslims against the attacks of Christian missionaries by proving the death of Prophet Jesus (as). He was a true lover and devotee of the Holy Prophet (sa). As a result, Allah loved him, granted him the status of Umati Prophethood and granted him acceptance far and wide in this world, which we continue to witness to this day. May Allah also enable us to follow the example of the Holy Prophet (sa) and enable the Muslims to accept this true devotee of the Holy Prophet (saw).
