This issue describes the various spiritual fruits that resulted from establishing a relationship with God through His chosen prophet – the Promised Messia (as).

Current Muslim Disarray and True Islamic Teachings
Friday Sermon by Hadhrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad, London, UK (March 1, 2013)
"An important quality of Muslims that is stated is that they are ‘tender among themselves’ (48:30). God has cited this as a sign of true believers but the Ulema (religious leaders) and the rulers of Muslim coun- tries have embarked on trampling this obligation in the name of Islam. And this is not happening in just any one Muslim country; in fact it is spread across almost the entire Muslim world, only differing in intensity from one place to another."
Distinctive Features of the Spirituality of the Prophet Muhammad (SAW) By Monsura A. Sirajee

By Qasim Rashid and Chris Stedman
"We must actively dispel our fear of the unfamiliar and embrace our fellow human beings as equals—especially the ones with whom we might vehemently disagree. We need neither whitewash our differences, nor evangelize. And under no circumstance can we compromise an individual’s right to believe—or not believe—as she or he deems appropriate. By instead embracing the middle path of respect and moderation—even in the face of injustice and insults—we better inform each other and ourselves" Read the complete article in the Spring ssue.
