What is most significant for our community is that they develop within themselves a pure transformation, for they are blessed with fresh insight of the Divine. If a person claims to be the recipient of divine insight but does not act accordingly, then such claims are nothing more than vain boasts.
Hence, the indolence of others must not make our community negligent and must not embolden them to become idle, nor should they become hard-hearted on witnessing the indifference of others.
Man possesses many longings and desires, but who has knowledge of the hidden decrees of fate? Life does not transpire in accordance with one’s yearnings. The ongoing desires of man are one thing and the phenomenon of divine destiny and decree is another; and the latter always prevails.
The course that a person’s life takes is known to God, Who knows what is written in their book of fate. Hence, an individual ought to awaken their heart to make it vigilant.
(Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmadas, Malfuzat, Vol. 1, p. 246)
