In His Own Words

Alas for Islam! Islam has always been wronged.

It is incumbent that man not adopt the way of hypocrisy. For example, if a Hindu (despite being a ruler or high official) were to suggest that Ram and Rahim are one and the same, a person should not agree with such an opinion thoughtlessly. Allah the Exalted does not forbid one from treating others with civility. One should always respond politely. It is not wise to make comments that unnecessarily enrage others and which result in pointless conflict. But, a person should never conceal the truth

When disciplinary action is meted out to people in employment and in other matters – and they are reprimanded by rulers – how wonderful would it be if they were to bear hardship for the sake of Allah the Exalted!

If our entire lives are spent in worldly engagements, what will we have accumulated for the hereafter?

A superficial oath of allegiance to a spiritual guide brings no benefit and it is difficult to derive any gain from such an oath of allegiance.

This is the reality of repentance (which has been mentioned above). But why is repentance an integral part of swearing allegiance to a spiritual guide? The fact of the matter is that man is given to negligence.

The reality of sin is not that Allah first created it and then thousands of years later conjured up the idea of forgiveness.

One should understand the benefit and need of swearing an oath of allegiance to a spiritual guide.

The Promised Messiah a.s. said: ‘I have come to strengthen people in their faith.’ 

All the virtuous deeds performed by a person may be divided into two categories: obligatory and voluntary.
