Prayer and Service to the Faith

The Promised Messiah (as) & Imam Mahdi (Guided One)

The sort of person who attracts my attention, and for whom I feel an inclination to pray, is only of one sort. When I come to know that a certain person is engaged in serving the faith, and their person is beneficial to God, the Messenger of God, the book of God and the servants of God, the pain and anguish such a person feels is actually my own… Our friends ought to make a firm resolve in their hearts that they will serve the faith. A person ought to serve in whichever manner or way that is possible for them… I truthfully say that valuable and worthy in the sight of God is the one who is a servant of the faith and beneficial to mankind. Otherwise, God does not care if such people die like dogs and sheep.
