Al NoorMonthly Newsletter of Majlis Khuddamul Ahmadiyya Inner ParkThe Holy Qur’anIn the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Ever Merciful63. Watch over Prayers, and the middlePrayer, and stand before Allah submissively.بِسْمِ‏ هللاِ‏ الرَّحْ‏ مَٰنِ‏ الرَّحِيمِ‏(Ch. 2: V. 239)HadithO Allah, bless Muhammad and his people, as You did bless Ibrahim and his people—You are indeed the Praiseworthy, the Exalted.O Allah, prosper Muhammad and his people, as You did prosper Ibrahim and his people—You are indeed the Praiseworthy, the Exalted.Hadrat Abū Huriarah narrates that the Holy Prophet said, “Our Lorddescends every night to the lowest heaven when the last third of the night remains, and Hesays, ‘Who will call Me that I might answer him? Who will ask of Me that I might givehim? Who will ask My forgiveness, that I might forgive him?”(Tirmidhi)Writings of the Promised Messiah (as)When you stand up in prayer, you should know it for certain that your God has thepower to do all that He wills. Then your prayer will be accepted and you will beholdthe wonders of God’s power that we have beheld. Our testimony is based on seeing andis not a mere tale. How should the supplication of a person be accepted and how shouldhe have the courage to pray at the time of great difficulties when according to him he isopposed by the law of nature, unless he believes that God has power over everything?You should not be like that. Your God is One Who has suspended numberless starswithout any support and Who has created heaven and earth from nothing. Then wouldyou think so ill of Him as to imagine that your objective is beyond His power? Suchthinking will frustrate you. Our God possesses numberless wonders, but only those observethem who become wholly. His with sincerity and fidelity. He does not disclose.His wonders to those who do not believe in His powers and are not faithful to Him.(Kashti Nuh, Ruhani Khaza’in, vol. 19, pp. 21)Al Noor Newsletter 2
