The most astonishing and interesting highlight of this week [i.e. the week ending on 10 July 1899] — which increased our faith immensely — was a letter addressed to the Promised Messiahas. The letter states with strong evidence and detail that in the region of Jalalabad, Kabul, there is a shrine of Yuz Asaf, the Prophet, and it is renowned in the area that 2000 years ago this Prophet came from Syria; there is also some land dedicated to honour this shrine by the ruling power in Kabul. There is no room here for further details. The Promised Messiahas was so overjoyed by this letter that he said:
“Allah the Exalted is a Witness and He is All-Knowing — even if someone had brought me millions of rupees, I would never feel as much joy as this letter has given me.”
Brothers, is not the pleasure elicited by a religious matter a sign of those who are sent by Allah? Who, in this age, feels such delight when the supremacy of God’s Word is established through such matters?
