Mainstays of Faith

  1. Firstly, it is the duty of the office-bearers of the Jama’at that they keep the mosques populated by their presence. In order to get the continuous blessing from the sacrifice of wealth and time that has been done by the Jama’at, the office-bearers and every member should try to make this mosque (that is currently three times larger than the Jama’at here) smaller for their needs. (November 4, 2016).
  2. Thus, amirs, presidents, and office-bearers should make a concerted effort by offering Salat and by its establishment in congregation. As a result, our mosques will be populated, Salat centers will be populated, they will also be gathering the blessings of Allah, and, with their practical example, they will be training the members of the Community, and will be the inheritors of the blessings of Allah, and their tasks will be made easier. They will not be just talkers. Thus, workers should first examine themselves as to what extent their word and action are the same. (July 15, 2016).
  3. If there is mindfulness, everything can be accomplished. Every officeholder should have mindfulness of congregational prayers. Otherwise, they will not be discharging the rights of trusts. The Holy Qur’an has brought this up time and again. (July 15, 2016).
  4. It is very embarrassing when a complaint is received about an officeholder not attending mosque for Salat or not offering Salat at home. There is a great need to pay attention to this because there can be no righteousness without it. Without it, one can neither pay the dues of God nor the dues of mankind and there can be no blessing, and such a worker cannot be a useful part of the Jama’at. (July 3, 2015).
  5. No one is exempt from the commandments of God; neither he nor anyone else – be they officeholders of the Jama’at, missionaries of the Jama’at, Ahmadi men or women. (April 5, 2013).
  6. If the standards of worship of the officeholders only improve during Ramadan, it is tantamount to contradiction in word and deed and it is most disliked by God. (August 10, 2012).
  7. If the officeholders on every level, of every auxiliary, enhance their standards of worship, the current attendance at mosques can increase two to three times. (August 10, 2012).
  8. Officeholders need to set an example regarding observance of Salat. If the officeholders on every level, in every auxiliary, were to improve their observance of Salat and came to the mosque, the ambience of the mosque would be enhanced. (March 30, 2012).
  9. (Lajna) Officeholders, whether at a halqa level or a national level, should observe the highest standards of purdah and their attitudes should be in line with the Holy Qur’an so that they become models for other Lajna members and children. (September 30, 2011).
  10. Jama’at officeholders should be mindful of the difference between an Ahmadi in general and an officeholder and present models in observance of Salat and other virtues. Then alone will Ahmadis in general be also drawn to these. (March 19, 2010).
  11. The officeholders should try that all their Salat are observed in congregation. (March 24, 2006).
  12. Having being chosen as the key people in the Community and given responsibilities, if they [officeholders] did not pay attention to the mainstays of faith, then what service could they render and what suggestions and proposal could they give. (March 24, 2006).
