'Enlarge your house'

God has a wondrous manner with His chosen people and Prophets. While they prefer anonymity and choose to spend their time privately in His worship, He commands them to emerge in front of the world. The most perfect example of this was the Holy Prophet of Islam (peace and blessings of Allah be on him) who would spend days on end worshipping God in the solitude of the cave Hira. He was indifferent to worldly matters although he consummately undertook his household responsibilities. The quintessential element in his life was love of God and His worship. When God commanded him to come out of the Hira cave and summon people to the One God, the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be on him) was a supremely excellent model of calling to God. Although he was badly persecuted for taking his message to people, such was his compassion for God’s creation that he continued to focus on this task. Each day his message would spread further afield and more and more people started accepting it. Indeed, it was during his lifetime that the message of Islam had spread outside Arabia. Later, Islam reached Asia, Africa and Europe. In accordance with his prophecy and the decree of God the spiritual state of the Muslims hit an extremely low point and they lost governance in come countries. However, just as God had promised that this perfect religion was to revive, it revived through the true and ardent devotee of the Holy Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be on him).

God sent Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad Qadiani (on whom be peace) for the propagation of His last religion as the Messiah and the Mahdi in perfect subordination of the Holy Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be on him) as a non-law bearing Prophet. From his early life till the end we see great love for the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be on him) in the life of the Promised Messiah (on whom be peace). He was not interested in the world and was only keen about worship of God and invoking salutations and blessings on his master, the Prophet of Islam. It was a consequence of his deep love of God and the Prophet that he would be perturbed about the dire straits the Muslims were in. He would supplicate God with profound humility and compassion on their behalf. Again, by virtue of his passion to establish the Unity of God and out of his love of the Prophet that he studied the Holy Qur’an in-depth as well as made comparative studies of other religions. He presented many masterful comparisons to prove the superiority of Islam over other religions.

God, the Knower of the Unseen was fully aware of the Promised Messiah’s (on whom be peace) earnest compassion for the religion of Islam, so He commanded him to come out from hiding. He commanded him not to simply try and better the terrible situation of the Muslims within his own sphere, not just try and solve the problem with his writings, rather declare that he indeed was the awaited and the promised Messiah and that God had revealed this to him. This created such a hostile situation in Qadian that the Promised Messiah (on whom be peace) contemplated migration. His few followers were most eager to help him with this and also took on the responsibility to protect him but the situation did not get to this. Earlier, when the Promised Messiah (on whom be peace) was writing his magnum opus ‘Braheen e Ahmadiyya’ God had consoled him that the circumstances will be in his favour. He has penned this in his book ‘Siraj e Munir’:
