The Ark of Noah

Submitted by Ikram.

The Ark of Noah – by Mirza Ghulam Ahmad.

Briefly, this book is a reflection of a purified mind that speaks genuinely from personal Divine experience and its consequent conviction in tauheed and righteousness. These feelings of the author gush forth in an unstoppable ecstasy out of his love for the Divine Source – Allah, respect and recognition of the Last Divine Messenger – Muhammad (PBUH) and the authority of the Last Divine Book – Quran. The author cannot hide his yearn for the reader to connect with these three sources of Islam. In doing so he is speaking from his heart rather than preaching from a pulpit.

Our generation is almost fifteen hundred years removed from Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) and as a consumer of faith, its an inevitable ecstatic craving to be in company of some kind of a divine source or mind that one can connect with our contemporary times, else the spiritual grandeur of the past remains folklore and campfire stories. Is there anyone out there who can share his cup from the Divine Fountain that he has already drank from? This book gives one such opportunity to wet ones lips to such an original inspiration. Recognition of the author as manifestation of Messiah is definitely an advantage but not a requirement of faith of Islam. If one recognizes the Messiah-hood of the author, then it naturally opens ones mind to the authors spiritual connections that one can read in his extensive writings.

While putting to pen his inspirations, the author constantly reminds and even admonishes the reader that the focus of the book is not the author himself but God and fervently tries to hand carry the reader to God. In doing so he constantly addresses the in born intelligence of the reader and poses direct questions as to what keeps the reader from going to the Divine Source in the first place.

This book is a must read for anyone to experience what it means to feel the pain of someone who sees and discerns the communal spiritual void around himself. Only a divinely infused can carry this extent of anguish and this kind of pristine teaching in his heart. This book serves as a vessel to take the faithful out of sea of moral dross to the Mount Judis of Islam i.e. Allah, Quran, Muhammad.
