Summary of Barakat-ud-Dua:
3 April, 1893


Printer-friendly Version

Sir Syed Ahmad Khan was a great leader of the Indian Muslims, whose valuable services in the field of education and politics cannot be denied. When he tried to improve the religious state of his compatriots, however, his efforts went astray. The tremendous onslaught of materialism against religion at that time called for a spiritual personage of high stature who could prove the truth of religion in the face of the modern philosophy. Sir Syed was not such a man of God. He was thus unable to withstand the tremendous tide of materialism and ended up agreeing with the material philosophy which said that revelation ( wahi ) has no external source; it is merely a pious thought arising from within ones own heart. According to this theory, ones supplications (dua) are only for ones own satisfaction; there is no acceptance of prayers by the Almighty. Alas, these teachings render religion meaningless, because they reduce Divine revelation to human inspiration and negate the purpose of all acts of devotion and prayer. There is no sense in trying to grow closer to a God Who does not respond to any call for help or plea for mercy.

Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad Sahib of Qadian abhorred all such beliefs. It was his claim that he was a recipient of wahi that came from God in the form of definite words. He had forcefully supported this claim in Barahin-i-Ahmadiyya by means of rational arguments and his own observations and experiences, and continued to give proof for it in all his writings. He felt the need to write a complete book on the acceptance of prayers, and on April 20, 1893, he published a book on this topic, entitled Barakat-ud-Dua (the Blessings of Prayer). In this book, he has given strong arguments to support the fulfilment of prayer by Allah, the Most High, and has presented his own person as a witness testifying to the truth of this phenomenon, as a result of his personal experiences in this regard. He has also listed all those means by which a person can attain that level at which his supplications are accepted by the Almighty. Sir Syed Ahmad Khan, who was alive at the time, was generally the person addressed throughout the book and he was specifically invited at the end to witness some instances of the fulfilment of Hazrat Mirza Sahib’s prayers. Yet, Sir Syed gave no response to it and maintained complete silence. Or, he may possibly have accepted its wisdom in his heart. Allah is the best Knower.
