The Philosophy of The Teachings of Islam

“December 21, 1896 A paper written by me on the qualities and miracles of the Holy Qur’an will be read in the Great Conference of Religions to be held in Lahore Town Hall on December 26, 27, and 28, 1896. This paper is above the reach of human faculties and is a divine Sign having been prepared with His special support…. God the All Knowing, has informed me by revelation that this paper will tower above all others. It contains such light of truth, wisdom and insight as shall confound the followers of other faiths who might be present and listen to it from beginning to end. They will not be able to match its qualities from their own books whether they are Christians, Aryas, Sanatan Dharmists or any others, for God has decreed that the light of His Holy Book be manifested that day”. (Tadhkirah p371)r3″When I completed writing the paper, it was revealed to me from Allah the Almighty: The paper has been declared supreme”

Guidance for Holy Livings

Let all your power be exerted to establish His Unity upon earth. Be kind and merciful to the creatures of God. Let not your tongue speak evil against them or your hands do injury to them. Do not oppress them but try your best to do good to them. Speak not the word of pride and vanity to any one though he be your subordinate or servant. Abuse not any one though he might abuse you. Walk upon earth in humility and meekness and sympathise with your fellow beings, that you may be accepted of God. There are many who show meekness outwardly but inwardly they are ravening wolves. There are many who are smooth in appearance but they have the nature of a serpent. You can not be accepted of your God until yourtongue conforms with your heart. If you are in a high place, glory not in your greatnessand do not look down upon the lowly but have mercy upon them. If you are learned, glory not in your learning, and do not despise the ignorant with vanity but give them a word of kind advice. If you are rich, glory not in your riches and behave not proudly towards the poor, but serve and assist them. Shun the paths that lead to destruction. Fear God and be righteous. Worship not the creatures but severing all your earthly connections, be ye wholly devoted unto God. Let not your delight be in this world. Serve God only, and devote yourlifeto Hisservice. Hate every impurity andevilfor God’s sake, for your Lord is holy. Let every morning bear you witness that you have passed the night with righteousness, and let every evening bear you witness that you have passed the day fearing Go. (Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad, The Promised Messiah as)

Moral Qualities Related to the Discarding of Evil 

The real object of man’s life

“The real object of man’s life according to the Holy Quran is, therefore, a true knowledge and worship of God and a total resignation to His Will that what ever is said or done for His sake only. “What is Islam? It is the burning fire which consumes all low desires and, setting fire to false gods, offers our life, property and honour as a sacrifice before God.”

“If your life, your death and your every moment, and your gentleness and your resentment, will be only for the sake of Allah, and every trial and tribulation, you will not try Allah and will not break your contact with him, and instead, will keep your pace up, then I say truly that you shall become a special community of Allah. You are also human beings as I am a human being, and my Allah is the same Allah as yours. Do not thus waste your energies. If you really turn to Allah completely, then I say unto you, in accordance with Allah’s Will, that you shall become an honoured community of Allah. Let the Glory of Allah impress upon your hearts, and affirm His Unity not only with your tongue but in deed so that Allah may also shower His Affection and Grace on you Refrain from malice and treat human beings with true sympathy. Follow every path of righteousness for no one knows which path may lead you to salvation.”(Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad, The Promised Messiah as)

“God becomes his eye with which he sees, his tongue with which he speaks, his hand with which he repels attack, his ear with which he hears, and his foot with which he walks.”.[The Philosophy of the Teachings of Islam]“Our paradise is in our God. Our highest delight is in our God for we have seen Him and have found every beauty in Him. This wealth is worth procuring though one may have to lay down one’s life to procure to it. This ruby is worth purchasing though one may have to lose one’s self to acquire it. O ye, who are bereft, run to this fountain and it will satiate your thirst. It is the fountain of life that will save you. What shall I do, and by what drum shall I make the announcement that this your God, so that people might hear? What remedy shall I apply to their ears so that Allah will indeed belong to you.”[Kishti Nuh; Roohani Khazain, Vol.19, pp21-22]

 

“God is a lovely treasure, value Him accordingly. He is your Helper at every step; without Him you are nothing, nor do your resources and your devices amount to anything. Do not follow other people for they have become wholly reliant upon the means….I do not forbid you to employ means within moderation, but I do forbid you to become slaves of means like other people and to forget the God Who provides the means. Had you possessed the eye, you would have seen that God is everything and all else is nothing.”[Kashti-e-Nuh, Ruhani Khaza’in, vol. 19, p.22, Essence of Islam, vol. 4, p.265]

Question 5 (English, Urdu)

“O people! know that you have been created so that you should know your Creator, your God whom you should worship, know, love, and obey. You must, in word and deed, show that you are aware of this, the ultimate and final purpose of your creation. Until you do so, you remain remote, very remote, from true salvation. If you turn your minds inward and look justly, you can be your own witnesses. Is it not true that it is not God but this world that you worship. A huge idol, made of this world, is before your mind’s eye, always, every moment of your lives. And this idol you worship. One thousand prostrations or more you make every second. All your precious time is given over to the affairs of this world. Hardly any time for anything else. Does it ever occur to you what the end of all this is? Are you just? Are you straight and truthful, God fearing? Honest? Humble? The way the Quran wants you to be? Year after year you never think of your God, of what you owe to Him. It is but true you have little concern with Him, the Ultimate Sustainer of all Existence. How often do you think of Him? Or mention Him?” (VICTORY OF ISLAM HAZRAT MIRZA GHULAM AHMAD as)
