Glad tidings of success


Last Updated on 15th January 2022

On the morning of 26 September [1898] after the Fajr prayer, the Promised Messiahas said:

“Now I have reached a state where even if I see a dream, I do not consider it to be confined to my own person or soul, rather I consider it to be related to Islam and my community. I can swear on oath and say that when I see a dream, I do not consider my own self even slightly.

“In this context, last night I saw that I drank a large cup of sherbet. Its sweetness was beyond my ability to bear, but despite this, I went on drinking it. The thought also crossed my mind that I suffer from diabetes, so why am I drinking such a sweet sherbet in so large a quantity? But despite these thoughts, I drank the entire cup. Sherbet signifies success and so this is a glad-tiding of success for Islam and our community.

“In truth, the string of a person’s dreams extend in their scope and breadth to the extent of their relations with other people. For example, if someone lives in Kolkata and I do not even know him, I will not see dreams in their connection. As such, many years ago when only a few people knew of me, the dreams that I experienced were limited to those few people alone, but now I see dreams related to thousands of people.”

(Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmadas, Malfuzat, Vol. 1, pp. 274-275)
