Friday Sermon 13 March 1998
It possesses clear proofs for mankind and is a guidance and a mercy for a people firm in faith. If who commit evil deeds think that We shall make them like those who believe and do good works their life and death being equal - Evil is what they judge. And Allah has created the heavens and the Earth with the truth so that every soul may be requited for what it sows; and they shall not be wronged. ('The Holy Quran'. al-Jathiya [The Curtsey]: 21 -23). I also recited these same verses in the previous Friday Sermon and was presenting certain excerpts from the Promised Messiah in relation to the same 'The righteous person is one who is proven to be righteous through the Sign of God. Everybody can say that 'I love God' but the one who loves God is one whose love is attested by the heavens'. With reference to the Promised Messiah (peace be upon him) I advise patience and desisting from quick action when one is angry and to adopt the path of gentility for it creates sagacity and [enables] one to react correctly. Come under this precious advise in your daily conduct. Many a quarrel and disharmony and court cases arise from its misunderstanding or in case of having understood it not acting accordingly. His Holiness the Promised Messiah (peace be upon him) states: This is the instruction that we have given to our Jamat. We forsake and expel from our Jamat anyone who does act upon it. (Ahmad, Hazrat Mirza Ghulam. 'Kitabul Bariyya' ['The Acquittal']. 'Ruhani Khazain: xiii'. 17). Here it is also worth thinking about the subject of expulsion. His Holiness the Promised Messiah (peace be upon him) did not formally expel such people from his Jamat. So this expulsion is in terminology. It is not a formal process of expulsion. In another place he says: One finds solace in this world and the Hereafter in piety of the soul as per the Prophetic directive. (Ahmad. 15 May 1908. 'Malfuzat: v. 635). One cannot find rest except by entering the refuge of the Holy Prophet ﷺ. Sometimes the error of an individual destroys his household along with him. It is fortunate to repent before a calamity descends. Nobody enters the Jamat by mere insertion of one's name. Until one gives birth to the internal reality which is the purpose of the Jamat. This reality is mutual love and not to disregard the rights. These are 2 aspects of the same. One never disregards the rights of the beloved. The recognition of love would be that you never disregard the rights. When you do not disregard the rights then it would become possible to give over your rights to others. Almighty God does not like pomp and cunning. He likes the cautious. You are the Jamat of the one He has chosen to show an example of piety. [So] I especially draw the attention of the members of the Jamat to act in accordance to these admonishments and to inculcate a pious example.
