Writings of Hazrat Promised Messiah (as)

Continuing our series of weekly extracts of writings from Hazrat Masih-e-Maud (as) from “Philosophy of the Teachings of Islam”:

…first God desires to teach man the rules of social behavior like sitting, standing, eating, drinking, talking, etc, and thus to deliver him from a state of barbarism and distinguish him from the animals and thus bestow upon him an elementary moral state which might be described as social culture.  He then desires to regulate his elementary moral habits so that they should acquire the character of high moral qualities.  Both these methods are part of the same process as they are related to the reform of man’s natural condition.

The third grade of progress is that a person should become wholly devoted to the love of his True Creator and to the winning of His pleasure.  The whole of his being should be committed to God.  To remind Muslims constantly of this grade their religion has been named Islam, which means to devote oneself wholly to God and to keep nothing back.
