“…There are many more people as compared to you who possess worldly treasures and comforts, however, only you possess the bounties of the religion; they do not possess them…”
“Remember well, if you get involved in Politics, Jama’at Ahmadiyya will not make progress. Anyone who joins others in Politics, he also will not succeed, because who forsakes God for the sake of the world, he loses the world also. So if you desire to adopt a way leading to nearness to God, you will not find it while seeking the world, rather, you will find it through seeking God Almighty. God Almighty has opened all the doors of His blessings for us. The man to whom the Holy Prophet (saw) has conveyed his ‘salam’, and many great saints have left this world while hoping to see, God Almighty has raised this man amongst us. God Almighty has not only granted us the ability to accept him, He has also provided us with the opportunity to serve his Jama’at. So you are the Viceroys or Lieutenant Governors of the court of God Almighty. You do not need the world at any level.
“A servant of the Promised Messiah (as) is the servant of the Holy Prophet (saw) and the servant of God Almighty. Therefore, your names have been counted amongst the servants of God Almighty. What honour greater than that can one receive? The Holy Prophet (saw) told a Companion that God Almighty had told him He shall teach you Suratul Fatihah by heart. The Companion said “O’ Messenger of Allah! Did God Almighty mention my name when He told you so?” The Holy Prophet (saw) said, “Yes, God Almighty has told me this by mentioning your name.” Upon learning this, the man started to weep bitterly imagining that by the Grace of God he has such a status that God Almighty mentioned him by his name. What a great number of favours and bounties of God Almighty are upon us that He thought of us. In the world even if a low level officer calls someone, the person is overjoyed. It is extremely regretful that a person whom God Almighty calls does not appreciate the call.
“God Almighty has called upon you. No king or high ranking officer of the world can give you what God Almighty can. Therefore, you must come rushing and thank Him when He calls. There are many more people as compared to you who possess worldly treasures and comforts, however, only you possess the bounties of the religion; they do not possess them.”
