Crowd of people has made it Land of Haram".
(Mirza Ghulam's poetry, Dur-e-sameen p.56)
"People go for ordinary and supererogatory (Nafly) Hajj. But in this place (Jalsa Salana in Qadian) the reward is more than NAFIL HAJJ and to remain neglectful is harmful and dangerous since the Way (of Ahmadiyyat) is divine and order is from God."
(Aina-e-Kamalat-e-Islam, Roohani Khazain vol.5 p.352)
"Since only those people can go on Hajj who have the means and are rich, although Divine Movements always initially spread amongst the poor and poor are excused from Hajj. Thus God has fixed one more ZILLI HAJJ so that those people with whom He wants to take the task of Islam's uprising and those poor that is the Muslims of India may also participate in it."
(Khutba Mian Mehmood Ahmad, Khalifa Qadian, Newspaper alFazl vol.20 No.66 dated 1st Dec 1932)
