    *Hudhur gave a discourse on faith-inspiring accounts of love of God and His chosen people by some companions of the Promised Messiah (on whom be peace). He began by citing the following verse of the Holy Quran: those who believe are stronger intheirlove for Allah (2:166).

    Hudhur said it is love of God alone that, step by step, inclines one to love beloveds of God. One makes efforts to enhance in love of God and to find ways that would please the Beloved. *Hadith relates that on the day when there will be no shelter apart from the Divine shelter of security, among those who God will take in His shelter of security will be two people who loved each other for the sake of God. Hudhur explained that love for the sake of God is an intense expression of love of God and when God thus blesses loving ordinary believers for His sake, how vast would be His blessings for loving His Prophets and chosen people. The pinnacle of such love is the Being of God and how fortunate are those who experienced the time of those sent by God. Hudhur said the ancestors of some of us experienced the time of the Promised Messiah (on whom be peace) and expressed their love and devotion directly to him and in turn received his affection and love. How blessed were they to have had the physical presence of the Promised Messiah (on whom be peace). Below are the highlights of these blessed elders.

    *Hadhrat Wali Daad Khan sahib (may Allah be pleased with him). He was of Rajput caste and belonged to the Narowal area. He had the good fortune to take his baiat on the hand of the Promised Messiah (on whom be peace) at the 1907 Jalsa. He arrived at Qadian for the purpose of baiat and saw a huge crowd gather in the street from where the Promised Messiah (on whom be peace) was expected to access Masjid Mubarak. A newcomer, he stood in the next street and prayed that the Promised Messiah (on whom be peace) would pass from there instead, so that he could have the opportunity to shake his hand. This came to pass and when he first set eyes on the Promised Messiah (on whom be peace) it felt to him as if the sun had emerged from behind clouds.*Hadhrat Madad Khan sahib (may Allah be pleased with him). He was an inspector of the Baitul Maal, Qadian and belonged to the state of Kashmir. He took his baiat in 1896. He had joined the armed forces and wished to go to Qadian before starting his employment. He had a great desire to see the Promised Messiah (on whom be peace), he felt once employment began he may not have the opportunity to do so. When he first saw the blessed face of the Promised Messiah (on whom be peace) he felt that even if he was given the entire state of Kashmir, he would not leave Qadian. He thought even if he was paid a fabulous salary he would not see the spiritually resplendent face of the Promised Messiah (on whom be peace). He gave up the idea of returning home and thought if he died the Promised Messiah (on whom be peace) would lead his funeral Prayer and that would be his accomplishment. He wrote daily to the Promised Messiah (on whom be peace) for prayers and wondered if this could be an annoyance. But the Promised Messiah (on whom be peace) told him it was a good practice and that he was very pleased with him.

    *Hadhrat Master Muhammad Sohail sahib (may Allah be pleased with him) was from Kamal Dera Sindh area. With the grace of God, he took his baiat in 1905 on the blessed hand of the Promised Messiah (on whom be peace). In those days Masjid Mubarak was extremely small in size and he used to fan the Promised Messiah (on whom be peace) while in the mosque in the summer heat, sitting right next to him. Once Maulwi Muhammad Ali sahib had something to say to the Promised Messiah (on whom be peace) and wanted to sit by him for the purpose. As there was no space for him to do so, he gestured to Master sahib to move. However, the Promised Messiah (on whom be peace) asked him not to move and Maulwi Muhammad Ali made his submission standing up. Later, Master sahib felt delight in the fact that while he was a humble person compared to the scholarly Maulwi Muhammad Ali, a prophet of God had treated them both equally.

    *Chaudhry Abdul Hakeem sahib (may Allah be pleased with him) was from Gujaranwala area. Originally, he belonged to the Ahle Hadith community. He met an Ahmadi who gave him literature to read among which he used to delight in reading Al Hakm newspaper and was intensely drawn to visit Qadian. In spite of mullah inciting him, he prepared to travel to Qadian. His funds were limited and travelling was difficult, he purchased a railway ticket that was not for the entire journey but the ticket checker allowed it as did the person checking at the end of the journey. He saw it as a first miracle of his journey that he flet he made for a good purpose. Finally, he arrived at Qadian with a fellow Ahle Hadith follower. When the Promised Messiah (on whom be peace) arrived in Masjid Mubarak his associate put some questions to him. The Promised Messiah (on whom be peace) began speaking in response. The man was satisfied and wished to take baiat but the Promised Messiah (on whom be peace) said he should fully satisfy himself first. A companion of the Promised Messiah (on whom be peace) commented that answers to all questions were published but people from outside still troubled the Promised Messiah (on whom be peace) with the questions. The Promised Messiah (on whom be peace) said that it was him who did the speaking, why were others troubled. *Hakeem sahib says that on the evening of the baiat he went to see Hadhrat Maulana Hakeem Nur-ud-din sahib (may Allah be pleased with him) who sat on a small bedstead on the rooftop and answered many questions, of which one was memorable. He said the detractors say that he had come to Qadian for worldly reasons, although even his bed was too small for him. However, he said he had found God by taking the baiat of the Promised Messiah (on whom be peace).

    *Hamid Hussein Khan sahib (may Allah be pleased with him). He was from Ali Gargh and worked in Meerut where he came to know an Ahmadi and was introduced to some books. He heard the speech of an Ahmadi scholar on the subject of death of Jesus (on whom be peace) and was enthused to meet the Promised Messiah (on whom be peace) and asked to be informed if the Promised Messiah (on whom be peace) visited anywhere near Meerut. In 1904 a huge earthquake came and it was said that it had been as prophesised by the Promised Messiah (on whom be peace). Meanwhile the Promised Messiah (on whom be peace) visited Delhi and Hamid sahib went to see him. He arrived at the house where the Promised Messiah (on whom be peace) was staying where many others had also gathered. The Promised Messiah (on whom be peace) was staying at the upper storey and as he came down the stairs, Hamid sahib did not see him at first as he had his back to the stairs. The Promised Messiah (on whom be peace) came quietly and most informally sat next to him. As he did not recognise him, when told who had just arrived, Hamid sahib was
