Peace be on you.
Hazrat Khalifatul Messiah V (a.t.) said in his that the community raised for the renaissance of Islam, under the divine promises does not celebrate Jubilees like worldly people. We have to see if we have achieved or trying to achieve the purpose for which Hazrat Promised Messiah (a.s.) was sent and whether we have made the aims which he (a.s.) mentioned in Jalsas (annual conventions), part of our lives.
There are some events, for which large sums of money is used. In Brazil Olymics, billions of dollars are spent for some days’ games. Great amount of money is used for show off in the country where a large section of people have no access to food. It would have been better to provide them the essentials.
The people who serve for the sake of Allah the Exalted see what does He requires of them. The humble people of divinely made communities serve happily.
For the revival of this era, Allah the Exalted has sent a reformer who announced that he has been sent for the sake of beautiful teaching of Islam.
By making pledge / Bai'at with him (a.s.) we affirmed that:
= we shall always believe in Oneness of Allah the Exalted, shall not make overt or covert associates with Him.
= we shall avoid all kind of oppression and betrayal.
= we shall pay rights of worship of Allah the Exalted, and shall remember His benevolences.
= we shall not usurp rights of creation of Allah the Exalted.
= we shall be humble and avoid arrogance
To impart in depth understanding of these matters, Hazrat Promised Messiah (a.s.) convened the training camp [Jalsa Salana] for Jama'at.
The purpose of every Jalsa Salana is that we should progress in paying rights of Allah the Exalted and rights of people. There had been no worldly aim of our previous Jalsas and not now. If flow of our thoughts is not on right way these Jalsa will not give us any benefit.
