Gems of the Promised Messiah & Imam Mahdi (as) – Affluence

Portrait of the Promised Messiah (as) & Imam Mahdi (Guided One), Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad (as)

Human beings suffer from various difficulties and hardships, and have various needs. Again, it is righteousness that is the fundamental means by which one can see their difficulties resolved and their needs fulfilled. Righteousness alone is the path of deliverance from financial hardship and other difficulties as well. Allah the Exalted states:

وَمَن يَتَّقِ ٱللَّهَ يَجۡعَل لَّهُۥ مَخۡرَجٗا * وَيَرۡزُقۡهُ مِنۡ حَيۡثُ لَا يَحۡتَسِبُ [1]

Meaning, in every difficulty, he who fears Allah—He will make for him a way out, and provide for him the means of deliverance from the unseen; and grant him provision from where he expects not. Now reflect and observe, what more does a human being want in this life? The greatest desire a person has in this world is to find peace and happiness, and for this purpose, Allah the Exalted has made only one path available – the path known as righteousness. This could be described in other words as the path of the Holy Qur’an, which is synonymous with the straight path (sirat-e-mustaqim).
