If prayer did not exist, man would have no means by which to attain perfect certainty in cognisance of the Divine. It is through prayer that a person is blessed with revelation. It is through prayer that one engages in converse with God Almighty. With constant supplication, when man reaches the state of the inner-self being annihilated in God (fana) through belief in God’s unity, and with love, sincerity and purity, it is then that the Living God, Who is Hidden from the people, manifests Himself to such a one.
Blessed is the one who understands
Reconcile with God. Adopt true self-restraint. The heaven inspires awe by sending down calamities and the earth warns us with the emergence of epidemics. Blessed is one who understands.
(Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmadas, Malfuzat, Vol. 2, pp. 11-12)
