Friday Sermon 10 April 1998
To Allah belongs whatever is in the heavens and whatever is in the Earth; and whether you disclose what is in your minds or hide it Allah will call you to account for it; then He will forgive whomsoever He pleases; for Allah has the power to do all that He wishes. ('The Holy Quran''. al-Baqarah [The Heifer]: 285). I understand that this is one of the verses that is often recited and which a number of Ahmadis would remember. One should remember these important topics. In لِّلَّهِ مَا فِي السَّمَاوَاتِ وَمَا فِي الْأَرْضِ ['To Allah belongs whatever is in the heavens and whatever is in the Earth;'] the full kingship of Allah the Almighty is mentioned. Allah is the master of whatever is in the Earth and the heavens. Nothing is hidden from Almighty God so it is futile to express something before Him falsely and artificially that goes against the reality or to try to hide anything from Him. God would call to account on the basis of the reality of a matter which He observes and in this accounting He would forgive whoever He wills and punish whoever He wills. وَاللَّهُ عَلَىٰ كُلِّ شَيْءٍ قَدِيرٌ ['for Allah has the power to do all that He wishes'] points to the theme at the beginning of this verse meaning He has power over everything as everything belongs to Him. If a person accounts for themselves beforehand then Allah the Almighty would include that in the account. If Almighty God finds among those who account for themselves such as account for themselves. If they analyse themselves for the sake of Almighty God then He would treat them gently. If they are not doing so or doing so incorrectly then Allah would bring them to account. His Holiness the Promised Messiah (peace be on him) has stated that: ... If your heart is empty of evil, your tongue will also be empty of evil ... light and darkness takes birth initially in the heart and gradually envelops the whole body. So keep your hearts under constant scrutiny. Just as a Paanwala constantly rotates the leaves and snips off their stale parts and throws them away, in the same way, you should keep rotating before your mind’s eye the secret thoughts and habits and passions and hidden capacities of your hearts, and whenever you encounter a rotten thought or habit or capacity, snip it off and throw it out. ... adopt the ways of the humble and carry the yoke of 'The Holy Quran' with meekness. The wicked will be ruined and the rebellious will be hurled into hell. But he who bends his neck humbly will be saved from death. Do not worship Almighty God on the condition of worldly benefits, ... (Ahmad, Hazrat Mirza Ghulam. 'Izala Awham'. 'Ruhani Khazain: iii'. 547, 548). For this His Holiness the Promised Messiah (peace be on him) has given the example of a Paanwala which explains this subject with great delicacy. Always keep praying for yourselves because everything is first decreed from above and pleasure also descends from on high. The expectations attached by His Holiness the Promised Messiah (peace be on him) are of a very high order and it is not essential that each one of us attain that standard but the treatment of Allah the Almighty is so grand that His Holiness (peace be on him) states that if there be even one individual in the house who does so then God would arrange for their home to be protected.
