Friday Sermon – Khalifatul Masih V – Mirza Masroor Ahmad – Year 2016

Peace on you! I bear witness that there is none worthy of worship except Allah. and I bear witness that Muhammad (saw) is His Servant and Messenger After this I seek refuge with Allah, from Satan, the accursed. In the name of Allah, the Gracious, the Merciful.

All praise belongs to Allah, Lord of all the worlds. The Gracious, the Merciful. Master of the Day of Judgment. Thee alone do we worship and Thee alone do we implore for help. Guide us in the right path; The path of those on whom Thou hast bestowed Thy blessings,

Those who have not incurred Thy displeasure, and those who have not gone astray. By the grace of Allah the Almighty, the tendency to dedicate children in the Jama’at [to the Waqf-e-Nau scheme ] is growing. I receive letters from parents daily, and some days there are twenty to

Twenty-five letters in which parents are requesting their expectant child to be included in the Waqf-e-Nau [life dedication] scheme. Initially, when Hazrat Khalifatul Masih IV (rh) started this scheme, it was only for a temporary period but later he made it permanent and the members of the community,

Particularly the mothers all around the world, responded to this call. Twelve to thirteen years ago when the Jama’at’s attention was drawn to this scheme, the total number of Waqf-e-Nau was over 28,000. However, by the grace of Allah the Almighty, the number of Waqf-e-Nau

Is now nearing 61,000, out of which over 36,000 are boys and the rest are girls. Thus, along with the passage of time, there is an increase in the number of those who wish to dedicate their children before their birth. However, the duties and responsibilities of the parents do not finish

After having dedicated their children, in fact, they increase even more than before. Indeed, the responsibility of the upbringing of an Ahmadi child lies with the parents, and there is no doubt that the parents will desire the best for their child when it comes to their secular and also their religious education,

Providing they are inclined towards religion themselves. One should always bear in mind that every child of the Jama’at, and particularly a Waqf-e-Nau child, is a trust that has been committed to the care of the parents by the Jama’at and it is incumbent upon them

To provide them with proper training and make them valuable members of the Jama’at and society in general. However, the upbringing and training of Waqifeen-e-Nau children and also their secular and religious education and then to present them to the Jama’at in the best manner possible becomes a responsibility

In this respect also because the parents make a pledge before the birth of the child that whatever is about to be born, whether male or female, they will devote it in the way of God Almighty and for the completion of the Holy Prophet’s (saw) ardent devotee’s mission which

Is the spread and propagation of the truth and the propagation of the teachings of Islam to all parts of the world; the mission which is to draw the world’s attention to fulfilling the dues of God Almighty; the mission to fulfil the rights of one another by conveying

The teachings of Islam to each and every person. Thus, this is no ordinary responsibility of the parents of Waqf-e-Nau children, particularly of the mother who devotes her child before its birth while making a pledge with Allah the Almighty, and then by writing to the Khalifa

Of the time that they would like to include the child in the Waqf-e-Nau scheme by making the same pledge with Allah the Almighty as did the mother of Hazrat Maryam: That is, My Lord, I have vowed to Thee what is in my womb to be dedicated to Thy service.

I don’t whether it is male or female but whatever it is, it is my desire and prayer that may it be a servant of the faith. Accept this desire and prayer of mine. Thou alone art All-Hearing, All-Knowing. Thus, hear my humble supplication, as You know that this prayer is from the heart.

This is the wish of the mothers before dedicating the child and indeed this should be the desire of every Ahmadi mother when she decides to present her child for the Waqf-e-Nau scheme and so too should be the case for the fathers.

Therefore, when this prayer is made by the mother who wants to dedicate the life of her child in the Waqf-e-Nau scheme, then she and the father must also be mindful of those responsibilities which fall upon them in order for the fulfilment of this pledge and for the acceptance of this prayer

As the child is presented to the Waqf-e-Nau sche after the consent from both the mother and the father. God Almighty has not simply preserved this prayer in the Holy Quran to serve as a tale of the past. In fact, God Almighty was extremely pleased with this prayer

And preserved this prayer so that in future, mothers will continue to offer such extraordinary sacrifices by devoting their children for the service of faith while reciting this prayer. Though every Momin [believer] makes the pledge to give precedence to his/her faith over worldly affairs but those who dedicate their lives should

Become those who reach the extreme heights of such standards that have been set. When mothers and fathers will instil in the children’s mind that they are Waqf [life devotees] and that they have been dedicated solely to serve the faith and that alone is the purpose of their life,

And along with this they will be praying for them, then children will grow up with this thought that they are to serve their faith. They will not grow up thinking that they want to become a businessman, or a sports player, or they want to go into such and such field.

Rather, they will ask the question, ‘I am Waqf-e-Nau and now the Jama’at and the Khalifa of the time should tell me which field I should choose to go in as I no longer have any interest in worldly pursuits? Also, the pledge which my mother made before my birth and the prayers

That she made before my birth and then the manner in which she brought me up so that I should pursue faith instead of worldly things, it is my good fortune now that those prayers have been heard by God Almighty and the efforts which my mother made for my upbringing have been made fruitful

By God Almighty and now without any greed for worldly things and solely with the desire of serving my faith, I dedicate my life. Now, it is essential that this thought should be first expressed by the Waqifeen-e-Nau when they renew their bond of Waqf at the age of fifteen.

For this I have also instructed the relevant departments that they should formally obtain this in writing from all those who are at the age of fifteen that whether or not they want to continue with their Waqf . Then, after the age of 20-21, when they have completed their studies and if

They have not entered Jamia, they should write again to renew their bond. If someone is told to gain further training in any field, then again they should write [after its completion]. In other words, a Waqf-e-Nau should himself express his desire of continuing with their Waqf at every stage of their life.

As I mentioned earlier that I have spoken about this subject previously on my many occasions and in great detail. No Waqf-e-Nau child should ever have this thought that if he dedicates his life then how shall he fare by worldly standards.

Or, to allow this apprehension to develop in his heart of how he will manage to financially support his parents or even to support them by any other means. A few days ago, the Waqfieen-e-Nau had a class with me and one of the boys asked

The question that if they dedicate their lives and offer all their services to the Jama’at, then how can they financially or physically support their parents, or even generally offer any kind of support to them? The very fact that this question arose reveals that parents have not instilled this idea

In their children’s hearts from a young age that they have dedicated their lives and now they are simply a trust of the Jama’at that has been placed in the care of the parents. The other siblings will serve them but he/she must present

Him/herself to the Khalifa of the time and will act according to his instructions. The word ‘ Muharraran’ which has been used in the prayer of Hazrat Maryam’s mother means that ‘this child has been divorced from all worldly affairs and now it is my prayer that he/she shall purely give preference to faith.

Therefore, first and foremost, I would like to say to the mothers and fathers that a mere title of ‘ Waqf-e-Nau’ is not enough. In fact, Waqf carries a great responsibility which until the adolescent years lies

With the parents but then after that it is the responsibility of the Waqf-e-Nau itself. Some boys and girls, who have acquired secular education appear to show a lot of passion and offer their services, however some cases have come to light where some have left

Because they could not manage within the allowance that Jama’at gave them. One has to encounter difficulties and make sacrifices if one wants to achieve a great objective. Thus, this concept should be engrained in the minds of the Waqifeen-e-Nau from childhood that there is nothing greater than devoting one’s life.

Instead of looking at others by worldly measures and thinking that such and such class fellow of mine has acquired the same amount of education as me yet he is earning in thousands while my monthly income does not even come near to what he earns in one day,

Rather one’s thinking should be that the status of God Almighty has granted me is far better than any worldly material. One should always keep the saying of the Holy Prophet (saw) before them that in regards to worldly material and means, one should always look at those who are less fortunate than him

And in regards to spirituality, one should always look at those who are better than him, so that instead of competing with one another in worldly gains, one should vie with one another in matters of spirituality. Thus, those Waqifeen-e-Nau children, particularly the boys who have

Completed their studies, should try to improve their spiritual conditions instead of their material and financial conditions. In fact, the Promised Messiah (as) expects this from every Ahmadi that their standards in this regard should be very high. However, those individuals whose parents have dedicated them for the service

Of faith even before their birth and have prayed for them, how much of an effort should they then have to make to attain these standards? The Promised Messiah (as) states: ‘I consider it my duty to advise my Jama’at and convey this message to them.

Thereafter, it is their choice of whether they pay heed to it or not. That is, that if one seeks salvation, and a pure and eternal life, then one should devote his life for the sake of Allah the Almighty and each one of you must make an effort for this and deliberate

Over this so that one can attain such a rank and position whereby one can say that his life, his death, his sacrifices and his prayers are for Allah alone and just like Hazrat Ibrahim, his soul should cry out: ‘I have already submitted to the Lord of the worlds.’

The Promised Messiah (as) further states: “Until man does not lose himself in God and does not die whilst he is at one with God, he cannot attain the true [meaning of] life. Thus, those of you who have forged a relationship with me, you would know that by dedicating one’s life for God Almighty

Is the essence and aim of this life. This is the aim and objective. Also analyse yourself that how many from among you would desire this for themselves in that dedicating their lives for God would be dear to them? Thus, the Waqifeen-e-Nau should understand this principle

And raise their own status above this. Others also dedicate their lives for the service of their faith, but at the same time, not everyone can dedicate their lives. God has also stated that a party from among you should go in search of religious knowledge and return and enlighten their own people.

[Some] people are engrossed in their worldly pursuits. However, the Promised Messiah (as) has stated that even in your workplaces you should have the fear of God [in your mind] and ensure you’re your faith takes precedence. Waqifeen-e-Nau must raise their levels of contentment and their level of sacrifices.

They should never worry that ‘if we are not strong financially, ‘then perhaps our brothers and sisters may consider us inferior, ‘or that our parents may not give us the same attention they give to others.’ Firstly, parents should never entertain the belief that life devotees are inferior in any way.

The status and rank of a life devotee is extraordinary, or at least it should be in their view. However the devotee of life should become the most humble person on earth. Whilst the Waqifeen-e-Nau should raise their levels of sacrifice,

At the same time they must raise the level of their worship; raise their level of loyalty. They should use all of their abilities and capacities to fulfil their covenant and the oath of their parents. They should endeavour to serve their faith and make every effort for the elevation of their faith.

In such a case, God Almighty rewards abundantly and does not continue without granting reward. In regards to fulfilling ones covenants with sincerity, on one occasion the Promised Messiah (as) stated: “For this very reason, God Almighty praised Hazrat Ibrahim (as) in the Holy Quran where it states: [Arabic]

“Abraham was the one who fulfilled the covenant he made.” Thus, fulfilling the oaths which one makes is not a small matter. The covenants made by those devotees of life, about which I read the heart-rending words of the Promised Messiah (as), are grand covenants.

If every Waqf-e-Nau boy and girl fulfil their pledges with sincerity, then we can bring about a revolution in the world. Many young couples come to see me and the husband says that he is Waqf-e-Nau as is his wife and child.

Or the mother will say she is Waqf-e-Nau or the father will say he is Waqf-e-Nau and my child is also a Waqf-e-Nau. This is a matter of great repute indeed, however, it will only be beneficial for the Jamaat when they fulfil their pledges with the utmost loyalty.

Whilst commenting on the loyalty shown by Hazrat Ibrahim Abraham (as), the Promised Messiah (as) explained the topic in the following manner: “In order to attain the nearness of God Almighty, “one must adhere to truthfulness become steadfast upon it. “You must form a sincere connection with God Almighty.

“The nearness Harzat Ibrahim (as) gained was due to this very reason. “That is why [God] stated: [Arabic] “Abraham was the one who showed loyalty. “Sincerity with God Almighty and maintaining loyalty “with Him requires a death [upon oneself]. “Until man is prepared to shun the world with all of its attractions

“and incentives and undergo every type of humiliation, “difficulty and struggle, this attribute cannot be developed. “Idol worship is not only that one prostrates before a tree or stone, “rather everything that prevents one from gaining nearness “to God Almighty or takes precedence over it, is an idol.

“Man forms so many idols within him that “he is not even aware that he is committing idolatry.” In this day and age, for some people drama serials have become idols, for some the internet has become an idol, for some earning money

Has become and idol and for some, their own desires have become their idols. The Promised Messiah (as) has stated: “Man does not even know he is committing idolatry, “yet deep within he becomes a culprit of it. “Thus, until man becomes one with God Almighty sincerely

“and is prepared to endure every type of struggle, “it will be difficult to adopt truthfulness and loyalty.” The Promised Messiah (as) continues by saying “Was the title awarded to Hazrat Ibrahim (as) given for no reason? “Absolutely not! [Arabic] “The sound of ‘Ibrahim is the one who fulfilled the covenant’

“resonated the instant he prepared himself to sacrifice his son. “God Almighty demands [physical] deeds and it is through deeds that He is pleased, “and deeds can only be performed through striving.” This means that in order to carry out virtuous deeds and to perform those deeds which would please God,

One must offer sacrifices and endure various difficulties and pains. The Promised Messiah (as) continues by saying: “Although man may face difficulty in carrying out “virtuous deeds but he does not remain in pain forever. When man accepts to endure pain for the sake of God Almighty,

Then God does not allow him to stay in pain. When Hazrat Ibrahim (as) accepted to sacrifice his son in order to fulfil the commandment of God Almighty, and the minute he prepared everything God saved his son. The life of the son was spared and he was also saved from the pain

He would have suffered from sacrificing his son. The Promised Messiah (as) further adds: “Hazrat Ibrahim (as) was thrown into the fire, yet the fire could not harm him. “If one is prepared to endure pain for the sake of God” the Promised Messiah (as) continues

“If man prepares himself to endure pain for the sake of God Almighty, “then God Himself saves him from that pain.” Thus, this is the standard for absorbing the love of God Almighty and beseeching his Grace that the Promised Messiah (as) explained to us and expected from us.

Not only should all Waqifeen-e-Nau endeavour to achieve this standard, but all those who have devoted their lives should do this as well. Until their sacrifices reach such a level, all the claims of our life devotees will only be superficial and mere statements.

Some mothers say that ‘we have come to settle in Canada, and our son is a Missionary and life devotee serving in Pakistan. We request for you to assign him here and call him here, so he may be with us. When one has dedicated their life, how can there be any demands and desires?

All desires should have come to an end. As I mentioned earlier, the trend to include children into the Waqf-e-Nau Scheme is growing and this is excellent. This trend should increase in a manner that we are sincerely turning towards God Almighty and it should not be the case that

With the changing of situations our covenants weaken or break. The Promised Messiah (as) stated: “Without enduring pain or without difficulty it is not possible to offer [true] sacrifice. If the circumstances have changed, then we must endure it, especially those who have presented themselves for the service [of faith]

Or those parents who have dedicated their children and then [the children] have renewed their promises stating that they would like to continue with their pledge. The Promised Messiah (as) states: “When man is prepared to offer every sacrifice “for the sake of God, then God Almighty rewards him

“and does not hold anything back and rewards abundantly.” May God Almighty enable the Waqifeen-e-Nau and their parents to fulfil their pledges keeping the true essence of sacrifice in mind and may they raise their standards loyalty and sincerity to ever increasing new heights.

I will now briefly explain some administrative matters and would like to draw the attention to the guidelines for the Waqifeen [life devotees]. Often people ask various questions. Some Waqifeen-e-Nau have certain misconceptions that since they are Waqf-e-Nau , they have their own separate identity.

Although they may have a separate identity, however they should not expect any special treatment, in fact, given their separate identity they must ensure that they raise their levels of sacrifice. Some people embed in the minds of young the Waqf-e-Nau children that they are special.

Consequently when they grow up all that is in their minds is that they are special. I have received this question as well as other questions of this nature. These hinder one from the true essence of devotion and they think the mere title

Of being a Waqf-e-Nau as their sole purpose in life and consider that they are special. Some have this in mind that since they are Waqf-e-Nau they do not need to attend any Nasiraat or Lajna programs, if they are girls, and similarly they

[think that they] do not need to attend any Khuddam and Atfal programs if they are boys; and thinking that their organisation has become separate. If someone entertains such a concept then it is completely wrong. Every office bearer of the Jamaat, to the extent that even the Ameer

[head of the country] is a member of the respective auxiliary organisation relevant to their age. Thus, every Waqf-e-Nau girl and boy should remember that they are members of their respective auxiliary organisation within their corresponding age groups. Whichever age group they fall under, it is compulsory for them

To take part in their respective programs. For those who do not participate, the head of that respective administration should investigate the matter and report accordingly. If that Waqf-e-Nau does not rectify themselves then such a child, boy or youth will be removed from the Waqf-e-Nau scheme.

If however, there are certain functions of the Jamaat or there are programs for auxiliary organisations or Waqf-e-Nau programs then they should collaborate to ascertain a time which does not clash with the programs of auxiliary organisations or Waqf-e-Nau programs. Thus, one should be particularly mindful of this matter.

Waqf-e-Nau [children], as I mentioned, are very special. However, in in order to be regarded as ‘special’, they will have to prove certain things. What are those things, they will have to prove? [They will have to prove that] they have a stronger relationship with Allah, in order to be considered ‘special’.

They will be called ‘special’, if they have a greater fear of God than others. They will be called ‘special’, if their standards of worship are much higher than those of others. They will be called ‘special’, if they, in addition to the compulsory prayers, also offer voluntary prayers [ Nawafil ].

They will be called ‘special’, if they have a greater fear of God than others. Another sign of their being ‘special’ would be, that their general morals are of the highest standard. They will be called ‘special’, if their conversations and general speech

Are very distinct from those of others and if it is clearly evident that they have been specially trained and are among those who give precedence to faith over the world in every situation. In case of girls, they will be considered ‘special’,

If their attire and their purdah are such an example of true Islamic teachings that when others see them, they envy them and say that indeed, despite living in this society, their attire and purdah are extraordinarily exemplary. In case of boys, they will be considered ‘special’,

If they lower their gaze due to modesty, instead wandering their eyes here and there, looking at improper things. They will be considered ‘special’, if, instead of looking at immoral things on the internet or through other means, they utilise their time in acquiring religious knowledge. These boys will be considered ‘special’, if their appearances

Make them look distinct from others. Waqf-e-Nau boys and girls will be considered ‘special’, if they regularly recite the Holy Qur’an, search for its commandments and then act upon them. They will be considered ‘special’, if they participate in events organised

By the Jama’at or its auxiliary organisations more actively and regularly than others. If they are leading their siblings in the good treatment of parents and in supplicating for them, then this is also a distinction. They will be called ‘special’, if boys as well as girls are such

That they focus on faith instead of worldly matters when it comes to finding matches for marriages and also in maintaining those marriages. [If that is the case,] only then can they claim to sustain their relationships, while truly following religious guidelines. If they have the capacity to endure more than others,

If they protect themselves from arguments or strife and in fact tend to resolve such matters, then they will be considered ‘special’. They will be considered ‘special’, if, in the field of preaching, they are at the forefront in fulfilling their duty. They will be considered ‘special’, if they are at the forefront

In the obedience to Khilafat and in following its instructions. If they are of resilient character and willing to make sacrifices, then they are definitely ‘special’. If they display humility and a spirit of selflessness more than others, and despise arrogance and strive against it, then indeed they are special.

If they listen to my Friday sermons and watch every programme of mine [on MTA] in order to continually attain guidance, then they are very ‘special’. If they act upon these things and upon all those things, which please Allah the Almighty and refrain from what displeases Him

And what He has forbidden, then they are certainly special or rather ‘very special’. Otherwise, there is no difference between you and others. Parents should also remember these matters and raise their children in view of this. If you inhibit these characteristics, then Allah the Almighty

Has made you a means for a revolution in this day and age. If this is not the case, and consequently you are not a role model for the world then let alone special, you would in fact be counted among the disloyal and the treacherous before Allah the Almighty

Due to not fulfilling your covenants or upholding your standards of loyalty. Thus during the upbringing, it is the parents’ responsibility to make them ‘special’ in this regard so that these Waqifeen-e-Nau are able to reach these standards of being ‘special’ once they are grown up.

As I mentioned before, during the religious and secular education, whilst passing through different stages, they should consult the Jama’at regarding what field they should study in, rather than taking the decisions for themselves. As for the selection of a career path as I have mentioned before

Waqifeen-e-Nau boys should prioritise enrolling in Jamias and becoming missionaries. There is a need for it at this time. The Jama’at [Ahmadiyya Community] is growing by the Grace of Allah the Almighty; not only are there new [local] Jama’ats being established in these countries,

Where the Jama’at has been long established, but Allah is also granting us new countries, where new [local] Jama’ats are being created. Thus, we require countless missionaries in every country. Additionally, there is a need for doctors at our hospitals. Many doctors, who are specialists in various fields, are needed in Rabwah, Pakistan.

Doctors are also needed at the hospital in Qadian. Even if, those from [Western] countries cannot be sent there – my sermon is being heard all over the world, therefore the attention of Waqifeen-e-Nau in your respective countries should be drawn towards this. There is a huge gap, as we lack specialist doctors.

There is a need for doctors in virtually every field of expertise in Africa. Currently, the construction of a large hospital is underway in Guatemala to which even [doctors] from Canada could go. There is a need for doctors there which is going to increase in the future.

There is a need for doctors in Indonesia and as the Jama’at grows, this need will keep growing as well. Thus, those Waqifeen-e-Nau children, who are training to become doctors, after having completed their higher education in these countries, having undertaken their specialisation and having gained experience,

Should come forward and they should go to countries, where it might be easier for them to go to. [Or rather] they should present themselves and the Jama’at will undertake the stationing. In the same way, we need teachers. For doctors and teachers, we need both men and women.

Therefore, give due consideration to these professions. We also need architects and engineers, who specialise in construction, so that they can accurately supervise and plan the construction of our mosques, mission houses, schools, hospitals and other building projects. This will help save the funds of the community

And we will be able to provide better services for less expenditure. Then, we also need paramedical staff and Waqifeen-e-Nau should select this profession too. So, these are some of the important areas, for which our community needs manpower. In the future, these needs might change according to the demand of the time.

Sometime Waqifeen-e-Nau have a special aptitude for certain subjects, so when they ask me, I approve that they can pursue further education in their chosen fields. However, I will say this to all students that they should accomplish research in different fields of science.

This instruction is for all Waqifeen-e-Nau and other students alike. If we nurture the best scientists in our community, then Ahmadis will not only be the voice of religious teachings which the world will rely on to learn about religion, but Ahmadis will also become the leaders of the worldly knowledge

And the world will depend on them to attain that knowledge. Based on this principle, indeed Waqifeen-e-Nau can work for the worldly organisations, but the objective of their knowledge and skill will have to be to prove the Unity of God and to spread the true teachings of the faith in this world.

In the same way, the Waqifeen-e-Nau can choose to go into other fields, but they must appreciate their fundamental objective that they have dedicated their lives for the service of their religion. Therefore, if summoned at any time to give up their worldly commitments to commence their service for their faith,

They should show up straight away without any excuses or delays. Another important point that every Waqifeen-e-Nau must remember is that they must not let these worldly responsibilities deprive them of the blessed tasks of the worship of God, acquisition of religious knowledge and serving their faith.

Their first and foremost priority should be to attain the highest standards in these faith related matters. It is absolutely mandatory for every Waqifeen-e-Nau to study the commentary of the Holy Quran and the books of the Promised Messiah (as). I understand that the Department of Waqf-e-Nau has designed a

Syllabus for them until the age of 21; that is available for you. On top of that, it is absolutely essential that you make an effort to further deepen and widen your religious knowledge. I would also like to emphasise this to parents that they can try

To do the moral training of their children with all their efforts but if this is only limited to verbal effort then this training will have no impact whatsoever. Their words and actions have to be concordant. Parents have to be a role model for their children in the way they offer Salat,

And will have to set the highest practical examples of how to learn and teach the Holy Quran. Parents will have to become the practical role models of excellent morals. Parents will have to make a concerted effort to gain religious knowledge. Parents will have to clearly demonstrate with their

Examples that they are repulsed by falsehood. Parents will have to absolutely refrain from saying anything derogatory about the system and the officeholders of the community, even if they are hurt by an office holder. Parents will have to demonstrate that they regularly listen to the MTA, at the minimum, my sermons.

All these directives are not just for the parents of the Waqifeen-e-Nau. Indeed, all Ahmadis, who want that their progeny to remain connected with the community, must make every effort to make their homes as Ahmadi households instead of worldly homes. Otherwise, their next generations would move away from Ahmadiyyat

In the pursuit of this world; worse still, they would move away from God and would face ruin in this world and the Hereafter. May God make it happen that all Waqifeen-e-Nau children seek the nearness to God and follow the path of God fearing righteousness!

May the actions of their loved ones save them from any embarrassment. Instead, every Ahmadi becomes the true Ahmadi, as repeatedly directed by the Promised Messiah (as) so that we can see the flag of Ahmadiyyat and true Islam flying high. The Promised Messiah (as) advised us by saying:

“A person assumes that I have pleased my God “by doing a mere one or two tasks; while this is not how it is”. The Promised Messiah (as) further states, “It is extremely difficult to show obedience; “the true obedience was demonstrated by the companions of the Holy Prophet (saw).

These are the standards of true obedience that are the role models for us”. The Promised Messiah (as) said, “Is obedience an easy matter? Anyone who does not show complete obedience brings disrepute to this community. There is not just one commandment, there are multiple commandments. There are many doors to Paradise and people

Attain the capability to enter paradise through different doors. In the same way, there are many doors to hell. You do not want to be in a position where you close one door to the hell, but leave the other one open”. The Promised Messiah (as) further says, “After taking the oath of allegiance,

“one must not remain under the misconception that merely believing “that Ahmadiyyat is a true movement, would lead to all the blessings. “Simply accepting the truthfulness of this movement “is not going to please Allah the Exalted, until your deeds become good. “Now, that you have entered this community,

“you must try to become pious and refrain from all evil. “Use gentle and pious speech, make it your routine “to offer repentance for your sins and supplicate in your Salat.” May Allah the Exalted enable us to act on this advice;

May we and our progeny set the highest standard in piety and God fearing righteousness and accomplish the mission of the Promised Messiah (as) . All praise is due to Allah. We laud Him, we beseech help from Him and ask His protection; we confide in Him, we trust Him alone

And we seek protection against the evils and mischief of our souls and from the bad results of our deeds. Whomsoever He guides on the right path, none can misguide him; and whosoever He declares misled, none can guide him onto the right path.

And we bear witness that none deserves to be worshipped except Allah. We bear witness that Muhammad (saw) is His servant and Messenger. O servants of Allah! May Allah be merciful to you. Verily, Allah commands you to act with justice, to confer benefits upon each other

And to do good to others as one does to one’s kindred and forbids evil which pertain to your own selves and evils which affect others and prohibits revolts against a lawful authority. He warns you against being unmindful. You remember Allah; He too will remember you;

Call Him and He will make a response to your call. And verily divine remembrance is the highest virtue.
