The nature of exemplary trust in God


One day in a gathering of the Promised Messiahas, the discussion turned to trust in God. The Promised Messiahas said:

“I find that the state of my heart is a strange one. When it is extremely humid and the heat becomes immensely intense, people begin to hope with a sense of certainty that rain will soon follow. Similarly, when I find my casket to be empty, I feel a firm sense of certainty in the grace of God that now it will be replenished, and this is exactly what happens.”

Then, the Promised Messiahas swore by God Almighty and said:

“When my pouch is empty, the sort of joy and pleasure that I experience in trusting God Almighty at such a time is beyond my ability to explain. My state at such a time is extremely comforting and satisfying, in comparison to when my pouch is full.”

The Promised Messiahas went on to say:

“In the days when my father and brother were overwhelmed by a multitude of woes and sorrows on account of lawsuits surrounding various worldly matters, they would often look at my state of affairs with envy and say: ‘He is a very fortunate man. No grief comes anywhere near him.’”

(Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmadas, Malfuzat, Vol. 2, p. 43)
