Arabic with English Translation
by Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad, The Promised Messiah and Mahdi(as)
The Promised Messiah, peace be upon him, was raised in the Latter Days to bring about the victory of Islam over all faiths, to defeat the Dajjal [Antichrist], and to cultivate true piety and understanding among the Muslims. As he had repeatedly pointed out, his struggle is not of the sword, but of the pen.
To achieve his objectives, the Promised Messiah(as) engaged in many debates and wrote more than ninety books and published numerous proclamations. Although poetry, in and of itself, was not the objective of the Promised Messiah(as), it was one of many potent avenues through which he conveyed the Message.
The Promised Messiah(as) penned poetic compositions in Arabic, Urdu, and Persian to voice his passionate and persistent desire to please the Lord and to glorify His blessed name at a time when disbelief was running rampant throughout the world. His poems stand as a remarkable testimony of his Divinely inspired eloquence and his burning desire to guide humanity to the One True God.
