Personal Enthusiasm and Heartfelt Wish of The Promised Messiah
The Promised Messiah states:
“I, myself, am fully experienced in this path and by the sheer Blessings and Mercy of Allah the Almighty,I have derived great comfort and pleasure. It is my heartfelt desire that if for devoting my life in the wayof Allah, I have to die and be reborn and die and be reborn yet again, then every time my desire shouldkeep increasing with enthusiasm.
Therefore, since I am experienced myself and have experienced that Allah the Almighty has given mesuch fervour that if I was told that there is no reward or profit in this devotion and that there is only painand suffering, even then I would not stop from serving the cause of Islam.”
(Malfoozat; Vol. 1, p. 370)
Status of Devotion for God
“A person cannot be considered fully and rightly guided until he dedicates his life in the service of God.”
(‘Malfoozat Vol. 4 Page 612)
The Greatest Blessing
There are innumerable and unending other blessings associated with ‘waqf’. The greatest blessingis that a faithful ‘Waqfe-Zindagi’ finds God. He who finds God does not want for anything. He findsParadise on earth and finds an everlasting life.
The Promised Messiah said:
“Truth will triumph and Islam will once again enjoy the period of freshness and light that it enjoyed inearlier days and that Sun will rise once again as it rose before. But this will not happen for a while. It isimportant that heaven holds back the rising of that sun until with hard work and sincerity we sacrificeour own blood, and until we sacrifice all our comforts for the sake of the revival of Islam, and until weaccept all humiliation for the dignity of Islam. The revival of Islam demands a ransom from us and thatransom is to die for the sake of Islam. This is the very death on which depends the life of Islam, thelives of the Muslims and the manifestation of the living God. This is what, in other words, is known asIslam. This revival of Islam is what Allah the Almighty wants to happen now; and it was important thatAllah should set up an effective mechanism. This is why that Wise and Mighty God has sent this humbleservant to reform humanity.”
(Fateh Islam; Roohani Khazain; voL 3, pp. 10-12)
‘0 the Musicians of the Heavenly Kingdom!’
Hadrat Musleh Maud ra) delivered a speech on December 28, 1953 on the subject of ‘Sair-e-Roohani’(spiritual journey).Towards the end, illustrating the miserable condition of the Muslims, he stressedupon the Community the need of life devotion, and to partake enthusiastically in the propagation ofIslam. He admonished the Community in the following glorious words:
“Alas! The Muslims silenced the drum-beat! The commanding call of a ruling power was reduced to afeeble sound of a few dirge-chanters. On hearing that drum-beat, the number of the soldiers who usedto gather was reduced from millions to tens! Even among them, ninety-nine per cent used to comply byway of formality and then they would disperse! The sound of that drum-beat lost its awe and dignity!The silhouette of Islam started to reduce in grandeur. The kingdom of God once again ascended to theheavens, and the world once again came into Satan’s clutches.Now the drum beat of God is aroused, and to you, yes to you, yes to you God the Exalted has handedover the beating of this drum! 0, the musicians of the heavenly kingdom! Beat this drum once againso loudly that the eardrums of the world may burst! Pour your essence into blowing this trumpet! Yes,pour your essence in this trumpet with such power so that the very heavens are moved and the angelsmay tremble! So that your painful piercing sounds, your slogans of ‘Takbeer’, your slogans of ‘Shahadat-e-Tauheed’, may cause to bring God to earth, and the kingdom of God is established on earth onceagain! For this very reason I have started ‘Tehrik-e-Jadid’, and for this very reason I instruct you todevote yourselves! Come directly and join the army of God! Today, the throne of Muhammad theMessenger of Allah (Peace and Blessings. of Allah be upon him) has been usurped by Christ. You haveto snatch the throne back from Christ and present it to Muhammad the Messenger of Allah (Peace andBlessings be upon him); and Muhammad the Messenger of Allah (Peace and Blessings be upon him)has to present the throne to God; and the kingdom of Allah the Exalted has to be established on earth.So, listen to me! Follow what I say! What I am saying is being said by God! This is not my voice; I amconveying to you the voice of God! May you accept what I say! May God be with youl May God be withyou! May God be with you, and may you be honoured in this world and be honoured in the hereafter!”
(Sair-e-Roohani, vol. 3, pages 285-287)
My mother used to say that when my father read books of the Promised Messiah as, his eyes becomemoist and he said, ‘I am a poor man and cannot send money to Huzoor for the service of Islam. I wishthat someone buys my children and I Shall send that money to Hazrat Sahib that he may spend thatmoney in the service of Islam.
