A dream


On the morning of 3 October after the Fajr prayer, the Promised Messiahas said:

“Last night, after Tahajjud prayer, I lay down and saw in a state of light slumber that I had in my hand four pages of Surma Chashm-e-Arya. I heard someone saying, ‘The Arya people themselves are now publishing this book.’”

The Promised Messiahas interpreted this dream saying:

“Perhaps this means that the reluctance of the Aryas and their suspicions as regards my various prophecies – such as the one relating to Lekhram, etc. – would be removed and the real truth of the matter would reveal itself to them. In the case filed by Clark, the lawyer Ram Bhajat was an Arya man. When he met me at Amritsar station, he openly told me, ‘The only reason that I agreed to fight the lawsuit without a fee was so that I could uncover a lead in the Lekhram murder, because I was certain that you were behind his murder.’ Similarly, other religious communities may perhaps harbour similar suspicions. And so it seems from this dream that God Almighty would manifest the actual truth upon them and establish an argument over them that would demonstrate their wrongdoing.”

Then, the Promised Messiahas said:

“The Patti announcements were no different. Even at that time, it was the other party themselves that was responsible for the publication of the announcements.”

At this, Maulana Maulvi Nuruddin Sahibra said:

“When this event comes to pass, we will be able to appreciate its grandeur and worth in a manner that others will not. For we clearly observe the challenges that confront us.”

To this, the Promised Messiahas said:

“Absolutely, but not only in this case, in fact this is our state of affairs when we witness the acceptance of any prayer or observe the greatness of any sign. Take the example of a person in a bleak and barren desert with no water for thousands of miles, who prayed and God Almighty granted them a glass of water by His grace. If this incident was narrated only briefly – excluding the details and without speaking of the necessary means required for water – those unaware of all the circumstances would laugh instead of appreciate the extraordinary nature of this occurrence. However, if the same people were apprised of the difficulties, they would look at the incident with feelings of immense reverence and awe. Similarly, if an illiterate person read through an English book, those who were aware of the person’s inability to read would find this to be extraordinary. However, if a Master of Arts or Bachelor of Arts was to read the same book, people would view this with little importance, or rather deem it inconsequential altogether. Therefore, the grandeur or insignificance of anything depends on the nature of the means to acquire it and the difficulties that surround it.”
