Fazle Umar Foundation
Every initiative put forth by Khalifat al-Masih the Third before the Community was overwhelmingly successful. Every initiative was a catalyst in the rapid expansion of the Movement. For example, Hudhoor made an appeal on December 21st, 1965 for the set up of Fazle Umar Foundation in memory of the Second Caliph. The project got off to a flying start and in a short span of time members contributed Rs. 3.4 million towards the capital of the foundation, which was incidentally over and above the obligatory donations. The purpose of this foundation is to enhance and carry on with the projects started by the Second Caliph.
A new building was constructed for the Khilafat Library in Rabwah, which was one of the projects envisioned by the Foundation. On October 3rd, 1971 Hazrat Khalifat al-Masih inaugurated the new complex, which now houses over 100,000 books, rare manuscripts, children section, administrative offices and science displays.
Other project carried out under the auspices of this Foundation are construction of a guesthouse, publication of Khutabate Mahmood (sermons of the Second Caliph(ra) in three volumes). Cash prizes were awarded to more than twenty scholars who have submitted their dissertations to the Foundation on a wide variety of topics.
