Friday Sermon 2 May 1997
The things I have been saying in the previous few sermons concern repentance and I will say some things to you on the same topic taking into consideration the needs of Holland. Every nation has its personality and despite the fact that Holland is a part of Europe but in terms of personality it is distinct. It is important to recognise this personality without which we cannot draw out a realistic plan of action. First there is the need which is same the world over that is of moral upbringing. That is to allow humankind to progress in a better state so that it is facing God and continues to become closer to God. This is the fundamental need of Ahmadiyyat which is the same in every country and affiliated with this i the need for proselytising. Because the same moral training when it attends to others is called proselytising. The Promised Messiah (peace be up[on him) says that true purity is a condition for true repentance. Allah the Almighty also loves those who desire purity. The fruit that comes to the penitent after their repentance is that they become purified which means that they seek virtue and wish to become pure but this cannot be without the help of Allah the Almighty. If a person repents from a sin, without being purified then the danger of their reverting back to indulgence is always present. The subject of purification entails the yearning for virtue and a restless desire in the heart of becoming pure. Allah loves those who harbour such desire for purification and Allah does not let his beloved go to waste. There is a day of awakening before true repentance. Open the eyes of your inner persons and observe what is dwelling inside and when you open your eyes some of you will find themselves yearning for the world. Some would discover themselves to be oblivious of making financial obeisance in the way of God and some would find themselves oblivious of worship and some would find that they are the perpetrators of all sorts of moral depravities. Discourteous is a thing which concerns one's every day lives and one never even feels how grave a sin one commits. One can never become Godly unless one's morals are in order. One's moral bearings entail one's treatment of the near and dear, friends and colleagues so that they are completely at peace with one, that nobody should fear that your relationship with them is because you have an eye on their wealth, inheritance or some of their rights. It is the basest and lowest thing for one to use their contacts so as to deceive them. Morals are a fundamental condition of Godliness, and one who is Godly always becomes moral. The purified are those who try to be pure from every fault at all times and when they do so they are near to God because God is pure from all faults. The pure try to adopt the attributes of God. It is impossible for one to adopt the attributes of God and return towards the world be immoral. We are entering a century in which even more responsibilities would be given to us. God has appointed a revolution for the beginning of every century. Examine yourselves as to whether you would be worthy of undertaking the new responsibilities by the end of this century. The work of the Muhammadan Messiah is spread across the whole world. It is incumbent upon every person who wishes to include themselves among the helpers of the faith of Allah to repent and look away from their previous lives and this is only possible if they want to be purified and harbour a yearning in their hearts to become pure. The nation which receives the love of Allah can only ever be triumphant. When I try to explain the subject of repentance again and again I know that it is a subject that does not easily reach the hearts so you should pray and ask Allah the Almighty for help to undertake this responsibility.
