He said, “It is a great blessing of God upon those who have come to the USA to enable them to settle in this developed country. Over the past few years, many Ahmadis of Pakistan have settled in the USA and they continue to do so, on account of the fact that the conditions for Ahmadis have continued to become increasingly difficult in Pakistan. Ahmadis should be grateful to such governments who grant them refuge. However, the greatest favor of God upon us is that He has enabled us to accept the Imam of the Age, and the most ardent devotee of the Holy Prophet (may peace and blessings of Allah be upon him). Therefore, if we truly wish to be grateful to God, it is incumbent upon us to obey His commandments, do justice to worshiping Him and do justice in fulfilling the rights owed to His creation.
