Righteousness and Purity


The Promised Messiahas said in a heartfelt manner, “Yesterday (i.e. on 22 June 1899), I received the revelation many times that ‘your community should become righteous and if you tread the subtle ways of righteousness, then God will be with you.’”

The Promised Messiahas said:

“It grieves my heart immensely when I ask myself what I am to do so my community may adopt true righteousness and purity?”

Then, the Promised Messiahas said:

“I pray so profusely that sometimes whilst engaged in prayer, I am overcome by weakness, and on certain occasions I begin to feel a loss of consciousness and feel like I may even die.”

The Promised Messiahas also said:

“Until a community becomes righteous in the sight of God, it can never receive divine succour.”

The Promised Messiahas said:

“Righteousness is the essence of the teachings found in all divine scriptures – the Torah and the Gospel etc. The Holy Quran has expressed in a single word the greatest means by which one can act according to the will of God Almighty and attain His ultimate pleasure.”

The Promised Messiahas said:

“I also think about selecting certain people from my community who are truly righteous, who give precedence to religion over worldly affairs, and who are devoted to Allah, so that I may assign them certain religious duties. Then, I will not care about those who remain absorbed in grief and pain for this world, and who waste away their lives seeking worldly carrion, day and night.”

At night, the Promised Messiahas said with a sense of extreme pain:

“Alas! At this time, I have no one but God. Strangers, and even my own, are bent on disgracing me. They lie in wait to see me afflicted by misfortunes and vicissitudes. Now if God Almighty does not help me, then I have nowhere to go.”

(Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmadas, Malfuzat, Vol. 2, pp. 23-24)
