A transformation of morals is possible through struggle and prayer


Until a person undertakes a struggle and seeks recourse to prayer, the overwhelming weight of ignorance that overtakes the heart cannot be removed. As such, Allah the Exalted has stated:

اِنَّ اللّٰہَ لَا یُغَیِّرُ مَا بِقَوۡمٍ حَتّٰی یُغَیِّرُوۡا مَا بِاَنۡفُسِہِمۡ

Meaning, God Almighty does not dispel the diverse afflictions and calamities that befall a nation until its people themselves do not endeavour to remove them. If there is no determination and courage, how can a transformation be brought about? This is an unchangeable custom of Allah the Exalted, as He states:

وَ لَنۡ تَجِدَ لِسُنَّۃِ اللّٰہِ تَبۡدِیۡلًا

And thou wilt never find a change in the way of Allah. Therefore, whether it is our community or anyone else, it is only through effort and prayer that a transformation of morals is possible. There is no other way.

(Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmadas, Malfuzat, Vol. 1, p. 134)
