“I am well experienced in this matter (dedication of life for the cause of God the Almighty). Even if I am told by God that this dedication will bring no reward to me and it will not avail me anything, it simply is not possible that I should stop serving Islam. I therefore take it as a duty of mine that I should urge the members of my Jama’at – and it should be like a will of mine -whether they act according to it, or they don’t-that if they are looking for salvation, they should dedicate their lives for the cause of God.
“Let everyone strive hard to reach the stage where he can say that my life, my death, my sacrifices, my prayers are all for the sake of God. His soul should cry out like that of Hazrat Ibrahim, peace be on him.
Aslamtu Ii Rabbi! aalameen (I have submitted myself to the Lord of the worlds)
“Unless a man is annihilated in God and unless he is dead in Him (prepared to die for His cause) he cannot have a new life. You who are with me can observe and realise that I take the aim of my life to be dedicated for God’s sake. You should look into your lives and find out as to how many of you like this act of mine and how many of you like to dedicate your lives.”
Hadhrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad (as), Malfoozat Vol. II, p. 100
