Peace be on everyone.

After the long process of creation and directed-at-each-step evolution by God, human was made with various faculties. God gave human knowledge about Him, His attributes and Spoke with able bodies, called Prophets. First able body was Hazrat Adam, on whom be peace. His spirituality was in the beginning level. He forgot few commandments to follow but he did not have any real intention to do so. He sought forgiveness and help from God, which was granted. He was living and leading his people in this world. All these happening were taking place here in this world.

Life went on with choices. Those who followed God were righteous, others were not so. Religious evolution continued too. Prophet were sent when previous message was forgotten.

In the time of each Prophet, the core of the message was to fulfill rights of God and rights of people according to existing divine law. This phenomenon is called "to give precedence to directives of God over low desires of self".

This phenomenon have facets. A true believer has to check at every step of his or her life whether they are going to do a certain thing according to pleasure of God or not. From wearing dress to eating food to getting married to having children etc. Every act of a believer is under the safe umbrella of divine guidance.

Intention plays a great role. These days some muslim places are showing a scene of chaos. Various militant groups are clearly doing acts which are not allowed in Islam. Just using a name of religion does not make brutality is due to that religion. For years, Scotland was under terrorism, never it was called Christian terrorism. Likewise, anyone using name of Islam and killing innocents does not mean Islam asked them to do so. Common sense has to be placed in action too.

Ahmadiyya Muslim Khalifah explained to his worldwide community how to work for worldwide peace by giving precedence to commandments of Allah over the worldly matters. He reminded the agenda of

0--Paying rights to God and His creation.
0--Establishing high human values.
0--Conveying message of Holy Quran and preparing more translations (with original text).
0--Making mosques.
0--Training children to learn and practice faith.
0--Giving precedence to deen (living according to divine commandments and pleasure of Allah) over worldly matters.

One has to remember that love of country is the part of Islam. Thus all misunderstanding of the country fellows should be removed worldwide.

Islam was sent when whole land corrupted by by immoralities of all sort. Human was made to sit on the throne of God. Reformers were crossed. One can read accounts of those days what was going on in the world. Now followers of Islam are given chance to prove the firmness of their religions and God has sent the Promised in all religions (Islam too) latter day reformer as Ahmadiyya Muslim Promised Messiah Mahdi (alislamDOTorg: on whom be peace). He and his Khilafat calls toward peace and love for all humanity which is lesson of all Prophets and last-prophet-with-shariah-Chief of all Prophets, Muhammad (peace and blessings of Allah be on him). Far there, there are voices which call toward discord and brutality. Wise can choose what is real what is not?
