The Promised Messiahas & Imam Mahdi (Guided One)
THE REVIEW OF RELIGIONS
Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmadas
What really helps to avoid sin is the manifestation of God. It is conditioned with having the eye that can see the Grandeur of God; another thing required is the certainty in the poison that sin produces. The earth gives darkness, while the heavens remove it and grant a light. The worldly eye is without light till the light dawns from the skies. That is why, unless one has the light of the skies which takes the shape of the Signs, no heart can get rid of the darkness and attain to purity which is the result of the avoidance of sin. Thus in order to be safeguarded against sin, one should seek after the light which descends from the skies with the brightness of certainty. It strengthens and purifies the heart of all the dirt and dust. Then, man really and truly understands what the dangerous poison of sin is and he shuts it and runs away from it. Unless a man reaches this stage, he cannot get rid of sins. This is the method that I propose.1
