وَ اَطِیۡعُوا اللّٰہَ وَ رَسُوۡلَہٗ وَ لَا تَنَازَعُوۡا فَتَفۡشَلُوۡا وَ تَذۡہَبَ رِیۡحُکُمۡ وَ اصۡبِرُوۡا ؕ اِنَّ اللّٰہَ مَعَ الصّٰبِرِیۡنَ

And obey Allah and His Messenger and dispute not with one another, lest you falter and your power depart from you. And be steadfast; surely, Allah is with the steadfast. (Al-Anfal: 47) (Quoted by Hazrat Khalifatul Masih in Friday sermon August 26, 2005).

  1. Hence, it is (also) the duty of the Amir Jama’at (national president) that if there is an issue with budget,then it should be resolved. It is also the responsibility of the Secretary Tabligh, missionaries and members of the Jama’at to fully cooperate with Amir Jama’at. This is the way by which we can establish the lost grandeur of Islam once again. This was the objective of the Promised Messiah’s (as) advent. (April 20, 2018).
  2. It the duty of officeholders at every level of the Jama’at to realize approved recommendations. I would like to draw the attention of every officeholder that they should extend complete cooperation to the tabligh secretaries for the implementation of this proposal within their Jama’at. It is the duty of the National Secretary Tabligh to send the established program of action to the tabligh secretaries of the local Jama’ats. Further, they should ensure that the plan of action is conveyed to every member of the Jama’at; including that portion who are not part of the administration. Most of all, understand the guidance given by Allah the Almighty in this verse and every tabligh secretary, every officeholder and every Daeyaan Khasoosi (specialist preacher) should act accordingly. (September 8, 2017).
  3. The office-bearers of the Jama’at [should] understand that it is important for them to work with mutual harmony; i.e., the missionaries and the office-bearers should cooperate with one another; especially presidents and amirs (national president). (March 10, 2017).
  4. [The presidents, amir and the missionaries] should understand that they have a mutual objective and need to work in parallel to fulfil their responsibility to train and help reform the members of the Jama’at. As the Promised Messiah(as) once said, work that can be accomplished with two hands can never be replicated by using just one hand. Our success lies in our mutual cooperation and working together to a common goal. (March 10, 2017).
  5. All amirs, presidents and officeholders should, therefore, deal with missionaries and life devotees with utmost humility and cooperation so that it makes our task of acquiring new missionaries easier. We need many more missionaries and life devotees, and so it is absolutely imperative that we establish a respect and regard for them in the hearts of all. (March 10, 2017).
  6. The National Amir, local presidents and the auxiliary organizations should all work with a mutual cooperation, and this will increase the overall progress of the Jama’at by manifolds. (March 10, 2017).
  7. If it is necessary to draw the attention of the amir to some important matter which has to do with the sacred practices of the Jama’at or that has to do with the requirements of the Sharia, you [addressing missionaries] should do this in a polite and respectful manner. But if the advice is not accepted and damage is being done to the Jama’at or some rules of Sharia are being violated, then, by all means, let me know. There should be no need for any kind of argumentation or involvement in obstinacy of any kind taking place as a result. Because such things then become the cause of creating divisions within the Jama’at. (August 16, 2013).
  8. Officeholders should treat their co-workers with kindness … if someone makes a mistake, it should be gently explained to them and there should be no interrogation like worldly superiors. Indeed, if someone is not complying with matters, it should be dealt with and, if needed, reported. However, there should not be an atmosphere where divisions are created. (April 12, 2013).
  9. First of all, we have to inculcate high standards within ourselves. If the officeholders and the Jama’at do not stand united, then they would not be fulfilling the rights of the house of God. [Huzoor also said that] the beauty of a mosque is apparent when the beauty of the spirit of those who come to the mosque is apparent, when their mutual love and accord is apparent (April 5, 2013).
  10. Mutual dealings of officeholders should also be of high standard; this is important for our tasks to be blessed. Divisions, egotistical stances and lack of patience only produce negative results. (April 5, 2013).
  11. Taqwa requires everyone to be cooperative with officeholders and each officeholder to be cooperative with the officeholder above him. (April 16, 2010).
  12. In terms of accomplishing various tehriks, Huzoor said often the same people are approached again and again, although the administration is often told to bring in new people. Huzoor said if the departments of Tarbiyat, Finance and Waqf-e-Jadid worked on this, this would be achievable. (January 4, 2008).
  13. Huzoor said he hoped that the life devotees of Qadian as well as the officeholders will increase in their mutual love and affection and will further develop in piety and righteousness. (May 4, 2007).
  14. There should never be any impression that there is no co-operation between a missionary and the amir. The missionaries should be very mindful never to give the impression that they are on exceptional terms with so and so and would perhaps show partiality to them if ever needed. It is a huge responsibility on the missionaries to inculcate the spirit of obedience in the Community. (June 9, 2006).
  15. Enjoining reciprocal patience and tolerance for the sake of mutual strength, Huzoor cited verse 47 of Surah Al-Anfal and counselled that each person should be caring towards the other. The officeholders of the Community should be mindful of the self respect of members of the Community and vice versa. (August 26, 2005).
  16. The auxiliary organizations should deal with each other with deference; all officeholders should pay heed to mutual respect. Huzoor cautioned not to consider this a trifle matter and said that this is what inculcates high morals. (August 26, 2005).
