DEVOTION OF LIFE
A PRONOUNCEMENT OF THE PROMISED MESSIAH (PEACE BE ON HIM)
"I am personally experienced and have knowledge in that field. It is the mere grace of Allah that i tasted the joy of devoting my life, My only desire is that after my death if it were possible that I am again brought back to life to again sacrifice my life for the service in His cause. This ardent desire would increase every time that I am resuscitated. God has granted me such fervor in this field of Waqf that even if I am told that there is no benefit or reward in this waqf except grief and suffering even then i cannot hold myself back from this service. I am therefore duty-bound to leave this as a "WILL" to my Community. It is your choice if you consider paying heed to my advice. Any one who aspires for salvation and aspires for a pure or perpetual life must devote his life"
( Malfoozat: vol2 pages 99-100)
A PRONOUNCEMENT OF HADHRAT KHALIFATUL MASHI 1(ALLAH BE PLEASED WITH HIM)
On one occasion, Huzur (Allah be pleased with him) mentioned the kind of missionaries required for our Jama’at.
Huzur (Allah be pleased with him) says:
“And pray for me that Allah may strengthen me with pious, righteous, obedient, loyal and hard working subordinates; who do not go against my instructions, May Allah bestow on me those preachers who are fully aware of true guidance, and who do not have any share with worldly things, and who always focus their attention toward the right path of our beloved Prophet ( peace be upon him) ”. ( Hayaat-e- Noor)
It is beneficial to set his own example in this field. Hazrat Promised Messiah ( on whom be peace) states about his obedience:
“He follows me in the same manner that the pulse follows the heart-beat”. ( Al-Hakam: Vol. 38/1935)
A PRONOUNCEMENT OF HADHRAT KHALIFATUL MASHI II (ALLAH BE PLEASED WITH HIM)
“ I am calling the attention of the other young men because the progress of Ahmadiyyat cannot be achieved without sacrifice and dedication. They should also have the sense of feeling for this. There are scores (of young men) who have already dedicated themselves for the service of Religion. But there are yet scores who are waiting, let them also come forward so that their names may be enrolled in the Divine Register”. (Al-Fazl. 12Feb. 1950)
A PRONOUNCEMENT OF HADHRAT KHALIFATUL MASHI III (ALLAH'S MERCY BE ON HIM)
“ Today, the spirit of dedication must be rekindled with full force in our Jama’at. Because the world is thirsty and none can quench its thirst save Ahmadiyyat. Until we have great numbers of devotees among us, we cannot accomplish this task. Therefore, I ask once again, that where are those sisters of Hazrat
Haajira ( on whom be peace) who would dedicate their children in the cause of Allah; and where are those brothers of Hazrat Ishmael (on whom be peace) who would forsake the world and its pleasure, comfort and luxury and come to God and for His sake present themselves to spend their lives
In the wilderness”. (Al-Fazl. 4May, 1966)
A DESIRE OF HADHRAT KHALIFATUL MASIH IV (ALLAH'S MERCY BE ON HIM)
“In the next century, life devotees shall be extremely necessary, so much that there should be devotees from every class of Jama’at. In fact we would have been presenting hundreds of thousands of devotees as a gift to God. But it is the people of that century who would benefit from them. Then we are those who will present this gift to the coming century. Therefore, whoever has got the ability should get prepared for this gift too.
(Friday sermon delivered on 10 April, 1987)
AN INSTRUCTION OF HAZRAT KHALIFAT-UL-MASIH V(ALLAH STRENGTHEN HIM WITH HIS MIGHTY HELP)
“Always say this prayer: O Allah! Enable me to fulfill my covenant and covenants which my parents have made (about my Waqf) and on every occasion, and at every pain, and in every trial you should reply as Hazrat Ishmael (on whom be peace) put it:قَالَ سَتَجِدُنِي إِنْ شَاءَ اللَّهُ صَابِرًا وَلَا أَعْصِي لَكَ أَمْرًا that you would find me, Inshallah among the steadfast and firm believers. If you fulfill your promise in this way, then you will prosper in the field of devotion (Waqf) and will get the love of Allah. By way of seeking the pleasure of Allah you will spend your lives. And on every difficult and critical occasion, he will bring you out with His mighty Hands and you will live under his loving sights”.
