People place their hand in my hand and repeat the words that they will give precedence to religion over worldly affairs, but when they leave from here, they forget this promise. What benefit can such people derive if they do not come here to visit. The world has seized them. If they truly gave precedence to their faith over the world, they would take time out to come here.
The Promised Messiahas states:
Two days ago, I received the following revelation:
یَوْمَ تَاتِيْكَ الْغَاشِيَةُ يَوْمَ تَنْجُوْ كُلُّ نَفْسٍ بِمَا كَسَبَتْ يَوْمَ نَجْزِىْ كُلَّ نَفْسٍ بِمَا كَسَبَتْ
“A terrifying time that will overwhelm the people and surround them from all four fronts is approaching. At that time, each and every person will receive deliverance on account of their actions. At that time, every individual shall be recompensed in accordance with their actions.”
After quoting these revelations, the Promised Messiahas emphatically urged the community:
Prepare yourselves. Be humble in your formal Prayers, inculcate the habit of Tahajud and weep in your supplications during Tahajud. For God Almighty does not waste those who beseech him and follow the ways of righteousness.
Our blessed Imam, on whom be peace, advises us time and again:
May the community become righteous and inculcate the habit of humility and meekness in their formal Prayers.
One day, he stated with immense pain:
Reform yourselves and adopt righteousness, lest you become a hindrance in my path.
