The Promised Messiahas & Imam Mahdi (Guided One)
THE REVIEW OF RELIGIONS
Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmadas
God exists even now, as He did in the days past; His powers too remain the same as they were in the past, and He is still as capable of showing signs as He was before. Then why should you be satisfied with stories and fables alone? The religion is dead and destroyed which contains nothing more than stories of miracles shown in the past and the people are a dead people on whom God does not descend in grace and mercy, whom the Divine Hand Itself has not come down to purify. As a man is drawn towards the joys of this world when he sees its attractions with his own eyes; similarly is man drawn towards God when he comes to know with perfect certainty that the spiritual joys are even sweeter. The appeal of Divine beauty takes such a hold on his mind that everything else appears to him of no more value than mere trash. Man is freed from sin only when he comes to know the power of God, and of Divine retribution, on the basis of a rm conviction.
