Friday Sermon 19 April 1996
All forms of worldliness begin from games and pastimes but as one grows up and games and play begin to overtake one's temperament they begin to be tempered with sinfulness and games and hobbies begin to draw one entirely into themselves and divert one from the nobler ideals so much that they become the sole ambition of one's life. Then slowly and gradually these things turn into fashion and show. Only a nation that lives simply, that does not need to borrow money in order to show off, can in truth breathe freely in the world. Crimes are related to moral weakness. Crimes can never be rife in a nation whose morals are correctly ordered. All the nations of the world where there is no peace are the ones where wealth has joined hands with politics. Either their wealth has enslaved their politics, or politics has become a way of building capital. All kinds of crimes thrive there. So rivalry in wealth and progeny which is indulgence in increase of wealth or excelling one another in political dominance is itself a disease that self-multiplies. In another place 'The Holy Quran' speaks of this subject in this way: Vying with each other for amassing wealth had made you oblivious, Even you reached the graveyards. ('The Holy Quran'. al-Takathur [The Competitions]: 2, 3). Both meanings are to be found in this, that you have fallen so low in increasing your riches and your progeny, your politics and your economics that you will not abstain even from beseeching the graves and will ask from the graves if you have to. In this relation this is exactly what has become common in the third world. The second meaning which is very powerful is that you have reached the edges of the graves, you are surrounded by tombs on all sides. Such were those whose took their evils to the graves and the Earth under which they lie buried. The generations who see pomp and competitiveness in their parents can never grow up without having adopted the same [habits]. When you bring up your children. They observe your attitudes, they see your inclinations, they read your inclinations. They observe whether you delight in remembering Allah and the Messenger or in coarse talk. Such people shape the futures of their own children. Today the future of the world has become affiliated to the Ahmadiyya Community. The faith and practice of Muhammad the Messenger of Allah will prevail through the Ahmadiyya Community. So cleanse your heart from every kind of multiple darknesses so that the light of Muhammad the Chosen one which he has received from God may enlighten and illuminate our bosoms and settle therein for good so that darkness and evil will never again even peep into it.
