I was really impressed by a friend’s desire to spread the message of truth when she handed me a paper with the following writing on it, while we met to visit a sick sister. Amtul Wadood Baig writes from the heart and translates with little help available. Her effort is inspiring and praise worthy. She distributes her writings to the passersby wherever possible, with the goal of spreading the word of God.
Love for All, Hatred for None
By: Amtul Wadood Baig
In the name of Allah the Gracious, the Merciful.
In Holy Quran God says, in Chapter 59 in verses 23-25.
“He is Allah, and there is no God beside Him, the Knower of the unseen and the seen. He is the Gracious, the Merciful. 23
He is Allah, and there is no God beside Him, the Sovereign, the Holy One, the Source of Peace, the Bestower of Security, the Protector, the Mighty, the Subduer, the Exalted. Holy is Allah far above that which they associate with Him. 24
He is Allah, the Creator, the Maker, the Fashioner. His are the most beautiful names. All that is in the heavens and the earth glorifies Him, and He is the Mighty, the Wise.” 25
Since the creation of this world God has been sending his messengers for the reformation of human beings. This is like a chain of all prophets with the same pristine peaching of peace, love and unity of God. Most people would like to follow a good natured person. How come that world will not accept the pure and poise and innocent prophet who spent his entire life, a short span of 63 years, in the service of humanity?
Most of the time he gave away his possessions to the poor and needy and remained hungry himself. He always worshiped the God Almighty with humility sometimes standing all night so much so that his feet will swell up. After the commandment from God Almighty he never got tired to spreading the unity of God and the same beautiful teaching which the earlier prophets preached. He suffered all the persecution of his opponents. Sometimes getting injured and bleeding a lot but never stopped preaching.
Once a Meccan Bedouin came to see Prophet Muhammad [peace be upon him.] This Bedouin pulled the Prophet’s overhead garment so hard that it injured his neck. He was demanding some money. Prophet Muhammad [peace be upon him] smiled at this ignorant man and asked his companions to give the Bedouin what he demanded.
There are many more such incidents in which prophet himself and his companions were persecuted, but he acted according to the commandments of God Almighty from the Holy Quran with utmost patience and prayers for these people. This is how he won the hearts of people.
Islam is the religion of peace. Whenever a sword was used it was for self-defense only. This beautiful teaching of true Islam which has been forgotten by most Muslims of present day. Those who are not following these pure teaching and using extreme violence by guns and other means are in error.Here is a reformer of these present days for all nations who was foretold by Prophet Muhammad [peace be upon him] to come as the Promised Messiah. Mirza Ghulam Ahmad, the promised reformer, was born 180 years ago on February 13, 1835. He was also foretold to bring back the original peaceful teaching of all religions and true Islam from Holy Quran. After his demise in 1908, we have his fifth successor, the spiritual head of Ahmadiyya Muslim Community, Hazrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad who is teaching the same message today.
Please watch National Peace Symposium. It took place on 8th November 2014. Here the current and future situation of the world is discussed by a Spiritual leader who calls all mankind towards Peace, Love and unity of all nations. He prays for the peace of all people day and night. If other Muslims and the people of other religions follow this spiritual leader they shall be blessed by our loving God and they will not perish, because he is the spiritual leader for all religions in the present day and is appointed by God. Please try to understand this truth. There is no difference between the appointed prophets sent from God. We are all in unity. To create peace and tranquility in the world and for love of our creator it is imperative that all people should gather under the banner of this Khilafat. May God guide you towards the right path. May God bless you and be always with you. Ameen.
