1891 - The Types of Faith
In the name of Allah, the Gracious, the Merciful
There is none worthy of worship except Allah, Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah
Muslims who believe in the Messiah,
Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad Qadiani (as)

There is another incident that is recorded in my notebook as well. This incident also took place in Jalandhar. A member of our community, our brother, Munshi Muhammad Arura Sahib inquired:

“Your holiness, how many types of faith are there?”

The Promised Messiah(as) gave an immensely beautiful and subtle response:

“There are two kinds of faith—rudimentary and refined. Rudimentary faith is to remain firm in practising the fundamental principles of religion without any deep insight (din-ul-aja’iz) and refined faith is to follow me.”[1]
