Eidul Fitr 1997
Among the lasting bounties that the blessed Ramadan leaves are those devoted men of God who were enabled to make sincere repentance. Many men of God who whilst being men of God were not men of God and have become men of God through the bounties of this Ramadan. So in this way this Ramadan leaves behind many blessings for the Ahmadiyya Community. Similarly if one sees it in perspective of the Mubahila* I have complete belief that this Ramadan leaves behind blessings that would remain for a very long time. So I convey the message of peace and security from Allah the Almighty to the worldwide Ahmadiyya Community and hope from them that they would answer it saying 'Yes O Allah! We are here. We would purify and cleanse ourselves to come under your security and always take care of our spiritual purity.' So if you enter this age of peace and security with this promise and this intent then there is no blessing that this Ramadan would take away with it. The singular theme of the Eid al-Fitr sermon is worship and the upkeep of Prayer to which I draw your attention as its fruit which is very great is Allah before whom one is to come. We are to receive the vision of Allah after which it is impossible to return to the other world. So this is the subject which Almighty God explains to us in reference to Paradise. My message on this occasion is only the upkeep of worship. We receive the fruit through the very agency of the Holy Prophet ﷺ and in his servanthood we strive to enter the whole world into his forte of peace. So you would have to receive Divine communion. Without it you cannot convey the message of the Holy Prophet ﷺ. Today the people of the world are in need of such faces as receive this communion. There is no argument that would convince the world of the existence of God except that the person who calls to the being of God be blessed with communion. That they see by the light of Allah. That in seeing him one would see the light of Allah. This status should be achieved by large numbers of the Ahmadiyya Community. In this way make this year the year of communion with the Divine Being and the enemy who sees dreams of our destruction, when they see their own failure and misery would also see you become Godly, that they would see that Godly people are born in each and every house of the Ahmadiyya Community. That all children, youngsters and the elderly who had lived hollow lives are beginning to enter into the fold of the pious. This is the real Eid and the everlasting Eid. * Quranic prayer duel. 9 February 1997. Islamabad, Tilford - United Kingdom. © The Tahir Archive / MTA International, 2016.
