Spiritual Treasures

This section is a breakdown of spiritual treasures extracted from the books and writings of the Promised Messiah (as). The short videos summarise the books in an easy to digest fashion.

Barakatu Du‘a

Barakatud Du‘a, or The Blessings of Prayer, written by the Promised Messiahas in 1893, is a refutation of Sir Sayyid Ahmad Khan’s view that there is no such thing as the acceptance of prayer, and that prayer is no more than a form of

worship. The Promised Messiahas rejects this view and proclaims that Allah hears and accepts the supplication of believers which are offered in humility and sincerity, and that the acceptance of prayer sets in motion its own chain of causes which culminates in the fulfilment of the objective prayed for.

In the second part of the book, which deals with Sir Sayyid Ahmad Khan’s other book Usulut Tafsir (On the Principles of Commentary of the Holy Quran), the Promised Messiah (as) presents his criteria or guiding principles for the correct interpretation of the Holy Quran.

 

Jesus in India

The treatise, which was then published as a book, discusses Jesus’ possible survival from crucifixion and his subsequent migration towards Kashmir in order to preach to the ‘Lost Tribes of Israel’.[1][2] Ghulam Ahmad argues his case with reference to Christian as well as Muslim Scriptures and old medical and historical books including ancient Buddhist records, although the viewpoints are rejected in orthodox Muslim and Christian teachings.
