Self Reformation

  1. Officeholders should also self-reflect whether they report falsely. (February 5, 2016).
  2. Any person serving the Jama’at should first self-reflect and see how much he is abiding by the commandments, change himself for the better and then advise others. Similarly, each Ahmadi who says that he took bai’at to bring pure changes in his life should repetitively keep God’s commandments in view. Not only would this bring about their own reformation, it will also enable them to impart true morals to the world. Special attention should be given to this and divine commandments should be looked for and practiced. (July 3, 2015).
  3. Officeholders talk about their own importance – men and Lajna both – but they do not instill significance of Khilafat in their hearts and mind as it should be instilled. If they do this, their own significance will also increase. (May 29, 2015).
  4. Officeholders of every level, from local to the center, having had correct appreciation of their status, can try and fulfil [their] pledge, as indeed [they] should. God always blesses the sincerity of those who serve faith while feeling its pain and He confers His nearness to them. Officeholders should try their utmost to attain this station. (October 17, 2014).
  5. Missionaries and officeholders should implement matters in their own lives and then tell the Jama’at about them. There is a great need to ponder over the word ‘implementation’ and to present good examples Then alone will words of reformation have true impact. (January 31, 2014).
  6. Unless religious scholars of the Jama’at, missionaries and all officeholders act as role models and do reformation, pay the level of attention which is required and correlate these matters with the advent of the Promised Messiah (as), a section of the Jama’at with weak strength of resolve and which cannot reform itself will remain. (January 24, 2014).
  7. [If the officeholders] are themselves weak in their strength of resolve, and are lacking in knowledge and have weaknesses in their own practices, then how can they support others! Every section of the nizam, in fact every Ahmadi, should self-reflect and see where reformation is needed and should also try and become a support to friends and dear ones who have weaknesses, so that every member of the Jama’at attains high levels of reformation of practices and, in this regard, achieves nearness to God. May God enable us to do so! (January 17, 2014).
  8. And every member of the Jama’at should self-reflect as well as the officeholders, whether they are honoring the rights of the office they hold or are they creating restlessness by not honoring the rights! The officeholders of the auxiliary organizations should also self-reflect. Each one will be accountable for the trust given to them and their pledge. (November 8, 2013).
  9. It is first necessary that you bring your own personal condition into order and, when you become such as is acting upon every command of God and you are making special efforts to win the pleasure of Allah, then alone can an Ahmadi be called one who is fulfilling the demands of, “we hear and we obey” and then alone can he be counted a true momin, a true believer. (May 24, 2013).
  10. Each officeholder should reflect that their position does not negatively affect the Jama’at or discredit its name. Models should be maintained of exemplary discharging of religious duties as well as worldly duties. It cannot be said that something is one’s personal matter, it has no connection with the Jama’at, and, therefore, one is free to do as one pleases. (April 12, 2013).
  11. Office-bearers who have worldly intentions or motives need to assess themselves; no one needs to tell them what is wrong. Remember, it is the noble intention that will meet with success. (July 13, 2012).
