Blessings of Financial Sacrifice by Ahmadiyya Muslim Community

The Promised Messiah (on whom be peace) writes: ‘This humble person has only been sent for the purpose of taking this message to the creation of God that from among the current world religions, the religion which is based on truth and is in accordance with God’s will, is the one brought by the Holy Qur’an. The door to enter the abode of salvation is ‘There is none worthy of worship except Allah and Muhammad is His Messenger.’

Hadhrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad (on whom be peace) was that devotee of the Holy Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be on him) who was appointed by God in the current age to spread the teaching of the Qur’an, taking it to all the inhabitants of this world in their own language. He was God’s champion who was to hold aloft the banner of: ‘There is none worthy of worship except Allah and Muhammad is His Messenger’ and show the way to the lost world. The Promised Messiah’s (on whom be peace) profoundly spiritual writings and works demonstrate that he certainly fulfilled his obligation. There were no worldly resources available in his lifetime to undertake such a colossal task. However, his perfect trust and reliance was in God alone. He did not ever rely on any worldly resource and always sought from God in accordance with the need of the time. Indeed, God has also commanded us to make worldly arrangements and in this regard the Promised Messiah (on whom be peace) asked his followers for financial giving. Yet, he did not rely on anyone. Those appointed by God have always appealed for financial giving for their missions as did the Promised Messiah (on whom be peace) but he always said that his reliance was only on God and that God had promised him that his mission would be accomplished. It was not an ordinary announcement made from a tiny hamlet in the Indian sub-continent and the world witnessed how the message spread from the tiny hamlet to the rest of India and then from India to the wider world, including the West. Many an influential priest and other opponents of Islam who presumed to be powerful rose in opposition and were either humiliated or God’s decree destroyed them. Such humiliation was not only witnessed in the sub-continent, rather Europe and America also witnessed it. Yet, unfortunately the eyes of Muslim religious scholars and Pirs did not open. In fact their hostility grew in pace and intensity.
