The Promised Messiahas & Imam Mahdi (Guided One)
THE REVIEW OF RELIGIONS
Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmadas
There are now two important things that I have to do. One, the propagation of my message in the Arab lands and providing the conclusive proofs (of the truth of Islam) to the people of Europe. The Arabs have a right over us; a large number of their people, perhaps, do not know anything about me; they don’t know that God has established a dispensation; it is my duty to inform them of this fact. If the message does not reach them, it will not be good.
The Europeans also have a right over us; their shortcomings must be pointed out to them. By believing in a human being to be their God, they have gone far away from the real and true God. Europe has inclined to the mundane affairs: akhlada ilal ard1 [he inclined to the earth]. They are making new inventions every day. You should not be surprised at their worldly progress. Whenever the heavenly doors are shut, people can think of only earthly matters. There never has been a prophet who made any mechanical inventions, nor a prophet who spent all his time and force for earthly affairs.2
