Friday Sermon 4 August 1995
Their Messengers said to them 'We are indeed only men like yourselves but Allah bestows favour on whomsoever He chooses from among His servants. And it is not for us to bring you a proof except by the command of Allah. And in Allah should the believers put their trust. 'And why should we not put our trust in Allah when He has guided us on our ways? And we will surely bear with patience the harm you do us. So in Allah let those who trust put their trust.' ('The Holy Quran' . Abraham: 12, 13). It seems that the memory of the Jalsa held last week will stay with us all the rest of our lives. The impression is unanimous among people from every nation that this Jalsa came bringing with it special bounties of God that cannot be counted and has proved such a Sign that with the Grace of God it will also prove to be a Sign for generations to come. The subject of the Jalsa has been joined in these verses recited with the subject of patience. The more God showers His bounties upon the believers the more the enemies plot against them but it is only God who destroys these plots so one should trust in Allah and not try to answer their torment by one's own hand. The Promised Messiah (peace be upon him) discusses this in his writings and says that patience is a great gem. This is an age of proselytising. This Jalsa was especially a manifestation of the successes of our proselytising across the world. We are to work on a program of preaching for the future starting from now. It is a message, an exhortation of love with patience which we are to act upon. Patience is also connected to prayer. As a result of patience the succour of Allah Almighty would be aroused for our sake but because it is difficult to be patience so 'The Holy Quran' also mentions it together with prayer. Prayer is deeply connected to patience. In reality only the patience of a worshiper bears fruit and only such a one is granted the grace of prayer who is patient. Patience upon prayer means that one prays in every situation. Those who are patient upon prayer always turn to prayer at times when they show patience upon tribulations. Day by day these opponents are getting tired and a time will come when the blackness of their misery would spread upon their faces.
