Sincere Prayer has to Produce Courtesy and High Morals.
Peace be upon you!
Great effort is required to absorb the grace of God. A struggle is needed, only then God quickly come to His servants, accepts their efforts, blesses them, and gives them the strength to do acts which attract His pleasure. Allah says: And those who strive in Our path, We will surely guide them in Our ways….(70:29)
The most important way to change the self to good and get nearness to God is to pay attention to offer Prayer / Salat.
Surely Prayer restrains (one) from indecency and manifest evil….. (46:29) . But we observe some people who offer Prayer, their attitude towards others is not so good. One may think what is benefit of Prayer then?
Fault is not with the Prayer. Meeting the conditions of Prayer is very important as is said in early part of (46:29) : Establish the Prayer….. The holy prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) has directed that when you stand to offer salat, bear in mind as if you are seeing God or at least consider that God is watching you.
The understanding and believe that God is seeing me and reads my mind, makes a person very careful in conduct. God can not be deceived; He knows which of one’s Prayer is being offered with sincerity, for His sake and to make the self pure. He knows which Prayer is just a show off.
God does not only watch while one offer Prayer but He also watches one’s daily talks and tasks. Thus, it is essential to keep each of deeds right so that Prayer is accepted. In these days, God is being forgotten and to bring about the spiritual revolution the blessed promised reformer (mta.tv) has stressed to offer Prayer for positive changes in self.
Prayer are the measure of one’s courtesy and state of moral. And also, high morals can be viewed as fruits of one’s Prayer.
The holy prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said that charity keeps the distress away….. The biggest anguishes and distresses which are effecting the lives in this age are low morality, not being mindful of each other’s right, neglecting real worship of God. Hence, giving charity, according to one’s capacity will result in absorbing God’s blessings. Again, like the Prayer, charity is to please God, not people.
Alongwith offering Prayer and charity, the other essentials are treating others with kindness and courtesy, safeguarding the trusts, fulfilling the commitments, talking truth and without any twists, avoiding and praying against jealousy which burns human from within, staying away from absurdities of all types which throw a person into the lap of Satan. To help achieve these virtues and spiritual enhancement, the institution of Ahmadiyya Caliphate is the timely blessing of God. The holy Caliph prays may everyone be aware of their reponsiblities and continue to get blessings.

IN A mosque, regardless of wordly positions, people stand together as one entity in one place, humbly in presence of Allah to worship Him. It increases the grace of His blessings more than before. Hence, reward of offering a prayer in mosque is twenty seven times greater, according to holy prophet of Islam.
Reward of each deed is dependent upon its intention, according to another hadith. It means in a mosque one must join others in worship without discriminatory feelings against others to get high rewards. For those who forget real object of prayer /salat woe is said (107:5) .
It is very important to purify one’s thoughts to draw benefits from salat / prayer. Point is explained by the Ahmadiyya promised messiah as : Salat during which the heart is wandering somewhere, thoughts are elsewhere and the mouth is uttering something else is a curse. It is thrown back and is not accepted…..Only that salat is real which gives pleasure. Such a salat is a source of generating hatred for sin. This is very salat about which it is said that it is the zenith of a believer and is a source of progression for a believer.

ROLE OF MORALITY FOR THE SURVIVAL OF A RELGION
1- Morality is virtually essential for the survival of religion itself……When moral standards are lowered, religion is the first to suffer.
2- Dishonesty and immorality corrode even the most powerful man-made edifices of law and constitution…….The spiritual edifices of religion are likewise corroded and turned to dust by the dry rot of immorality……This is the key to the understanding of decadence at all levels of religious beliefs and practices.
3- The unity of God is split and continues to be splintered because of lowering standards of morality……Idolatory begins to replace the Unity of God, and idols occupy the houses of God turning them into temples.
4- Deep below such destructive phenomenon, one will always find the worms of dishonesty at work……Dishonesty becomes a deadly poison when it works at the level of leadership, but no deadlier poison can be conceived than dishonesty WHEN it works at the level of religious leadership……In the name of God, they play havoc with the peace of His creation The throne of God is occupied by the pseudo-gods of religious hierarchy.
It would be much wiser to judge religions at their nascent stage rather than latter, when through human interpolation they become mere ruins of their noble and humble beginning.

REFLECTIONS OF THE DIVINE ATTRIBUTE OF FORBEARANCE (AL-HALEEM)
Peace be upon you!
1= God has asked the believers to imbue His Divine attributes on human level. His Prophets are given the greatest capability for this.
2= The-Forebearing is among divine attributes Forebearance connotes compassion, forgiveness, tolerance, kindness and suppressing anger. These qualities are vital for society and for spirituality….The days and years of Holy Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be on Him) were full of instances of forebearances.
3= For example: Once a man, during talk, kept touching the beard of holy prophets . The companion Hadhrat Umar (r.a) was very upset at this show of disrespect but the blessed Holy Prophet instructed him not to be harsh with visiting man.
4= Zaid ibn Su`nah, a great jewish scholar in the time of holy prophet, narrated : He recognized all but two signs of prophethood when he saw the face of holy prophet. Two signs which were not immediately evident to him were: i-Holy prophet.s forebearance would precede his rasheness. ii- His forebearance would increase upon facing intense rashness…One day a Bedouin came to prophet and said that a group of his people had accepted Islam and he used to tell them by embracing this faith there would be great increase in their provisions. Now because of no rain, there was famine and he feared his people would leave Islam as they came in with greed… The Bedouin requested for their help.The Holy Prophet looked to hadhrat Ali but he informed no supplies could be given…The narrator Zaid, the scholar, offered the holy prophet to rent him a specific palm (dates) garden for a ceratin time for quick relief….Instead the holy prophet told Zaid that he would rent him a fix amount of date-fruit until such period from unspecified gardens……A pact was agreed and Zaid paid for particular dates for a fixed time…. The holy prophet gave the payment to the man with instruction to help his people with fairness.Just few days before the expiry of fixed period Zaid came to holy prophet and seized him by his dress and angrily said: why do not you pay back my dues?.......Zaid saw that such attitude of his was angrily challenged by hadhrat Umar …But the holy prophet, who was looking at Zaid quietly and patiently said: Umar! Instead of being angry, you should pay off his loan well. Give him extra saa` (44 Kg) because you terrified him. Order was obeyed…….At this point Zaid disclosed his identity to hadrat Umar and told him that he deliberately talked to holy prophet in that since he wanted to check the two signs of forebearnace; preceding of forebearance upon his rash and increasing of forebearance on encountering excessive rashness. He found these two signs, too, in holy prophet. He embraced the faith and announced to donate half of his wealth for it.
5= The holy prophet always resolved family matters with wisdom and no annoyance.
6= His blessed model was for ever to be followed and practiced. Only listening, reading and enjoying about it is not the goal….Sometimes people are cruel to their servants…. Some people are not kind to wives and are extendedly brutal….Teaching of the kind and gentle conduct is for practice.
7= In an incident, at the victory of Mecca, pardon was sought for a fled person Safwan. The blessed holy prophet granted it. The fled man sent a message that a token of assurance be given. He was given a turban of the holy prophet which he had on when he entered in Mecca as victorious. Safwan was assured of the forebearance of the holy prophet.
8= The real champion is not one who beat an opponent, rather a real champion is one who controls himself when angered….Said the blessed holy prophet……Once He saw two enraged men fighting. He said he knew the words which can dissipate their anger; these are : I seek refuge with Allah from accursed satan…He directed that if a standing angry person sits or sitting angry person lies down the anger will go away…..He never felt anger on any personal issue but only on Divine matters.
9= A man complained that he always did good to his relatives but always got bad reaction The blessed holy prophet said his actions covered the meanness of his relatives and as long as he is firm on his way Allah.s help would be with him.He said Allah liked the two qualities of forebearance and dignity.
10= Forebearance connotes compassion, forgiveness, tolerance, kindness and suppressing anger. These qualities are vital for society and for spirituality.
11= According to holy caliph, forebearance was also shown by the holy promised messiah ( mta.tv ) who once said: With the exception of indecency all weaknesses and petulant behavior peculiar to women should be tolerated. It is shameful that a man should fight a woman. He never spoke harshly to anyone. His opponents would come by and use extremely rude language which he would never react to. Instead, he prayed for them. His compassion was keen and he subdued the rage…..He taught ( as the blessed holy prophet commanded ) to tolerate the abuse of a guest as he was not among followers.
12= The most supreme reflecton of the divine attribute The-Forebearing (Al-Haleem ) was the Holy Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be on him). In his footsteps, the Promised Messiah (on whom peace) has shown blessed models for reformation. May Allah enable all to imbue divine attributes.
LOVE FOR ALL HATRED FOR NONE.....Thanks
