The Promised Messiahas & Imam Mahdi (Guided One)
THE REVIEW OF RELIGIONS
Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmadas
If I am told that I would be severely punished for my love for God and my obedience to Him, I would bear all hardships and I would take the pains of the punishment as a great pleasure and I would never leave loving or obeying Him. Even one step away from obedience to God tantamounts to a thousand – rather, innumerable – deaths and collection of all the difficulties and hardships. It is as if a king were to announce that a mother who would give no suck to her baby would be rewarded; no mother would abandon giving suck to her baby in the hope of the reward from the king. Likewise a true Muslim, whatever the promises of reward and comforts for him, would never go even one step away from obedience to God; he would deem it a total destruction for himself.1
