“My objective is not for you to go around arguing and debating over the death or life of Jesus (as) — not at all. For this is a matter of lesser importance…My actual task and prime objective…is for all of you to nurture a transformation within yourselves and become new individuals entirely.”
“I constantly feel immense pain and grief so that a pure transformation may be brought about in my community. The vision in my heart for the transformation that I would like to see in my community has not been realised as of yet. And when I observe this, my condition is no different to the following:
Haply thou wilt grieve thyself to death because they believe not.(Q26:4)
“When people take the oath of allegiance, I have no desire for them to repeat a few words in the likeness of a parrot. This can serve no benefit. Develop a knowledge of how one can purify one’s soul, for this is what is needed. My objective is not for you to go around arguing and debating over the death or life of Jesus (as) — not at all. For this is a matter of lesser importance. This is not the main objective. This was an error that I have rectified. My actual task and prime objective is far from being realised, and that is for all of you to nurture a transformation within yourselves and become new individuals entirely.
“Therefore, it is incumbent on each and every one of you to grasp this secret and develop such a transformation within yourselves so that you can truly say: ‘I have become a new person’. Indeed, I proclaim once again, that until and unless you remain in my company for such a period of time that you are transformed into an entirely new person, you have gained nothing. If an individual develops a high degree of purity in their nature, and in their intellectual and emotional condition, then they have attained something, otherwise they have gained nothing. I do not suggest that you abandon your worldly occupations completely. God Almighty has deemed it permissible for one to engage in worldly occupations. For if not, man is tried by this avenue as well, and it is due to this very trial that an individual becomes a thief, a gambler, a fraud and a robber, and develops many other ill habits as well.
“However, everything has its limits. One ought to engage in worldly occupations to the extent that they furnish means to support you in the way of religion — the main objective ought to be religion alone. Therefore, I do not forbid you from engaging in worldly occupations, but neither do I say that you should become so engrossed, day and night, in worldly businesses and preoccupations so that you fill the place that is reserved for God with worldly affairs as well. Anyone who does so, only gives rise to means that will deprive them, and their tongue only makes an empty declaration. In short, remain in the company of those who are living so that you may behold a manifestation of the living God.”
