152. Qa’id Waqf-e-Jadid shall motivate members of Majlis Ansarullah to participate in the financial sacrifices and other programmes of Waqf-e-Jadid.
On December 27th, 1957 Hazrat Khalifatul Masih II (رضی اللہ تعالیٰ عنہ) started the blessed project called Tehrīk Waqf-e-Jadīd (The New Dedication). The primary objective of this project was to look after the spiritual upbringing of the members living in the rural communities. The secondary objective was to bring the message of Islam to Hindu population of the country. Today, by the grace of Allah, this is now an international scheme, where every member, male or female, young or old is encouraged to partake.
Hazrat Khalifatul Masih II (رضی اللہ تعالیٰ عنہ) explaining the importance of this blessed scheme stated
“This is the undertaking of Allah, and He Himself will complete it. Since it is Allah Almighty Who has put this inspiration in my heart, I shall endeavour to fulfil it even if I have to sell my house and my clothes to do so and even if not a single person assists me. Allah shall cut them off from the Jamā’at who are not helping me in this regard and will send down angels from heaven to help me”(Friday Sermon, January 5, 1958)
- Za’im or Muntazim Waqf-e-Jadīd should request the local Sadr/Finance Secretary for a list of non-participant Ansãr from the previous year and try to motivate them to take part this year.
- Every Majlis should encourage all Ansãr to take part in this blessed scheme. Every New Ahmadi Nasir should also be made aware of this scheme.
- As a family head, every Nasir should ensure that ALL members of his household participate in this divine scheme. Chanda should even be paid on behalf of new-borns.
- Ansãr should be encouraged to increase on the amount sacrificed by them in the last year.
- Ansãr should try to continue the sacrifices of deceased relatives who used to pay Chanda Waqf-e-Jadīd.
- A report on how many non-participants Ansãr (from the previous year) have promised to pay this year should be given every quarter to the Markaz.
Note: The Waqf-e-Jadīd year begins on 1st January and ends on 31st December.
