On 3rd April 1987, after receiving Divine guidance, the Head of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community, Hazrat Khalifatul Masih IV(rh) called on Ahmadis to devote the lives of their children for the cause of the Community and bring them up in such a way that they would grow up to willingly sacrifice everything for the sake of God. Accordingly, this generation would be able to shoulder the responsibility of the Jama’at [community] in its second century. Huzoor(rh) called this scheme Tahrik Waqf-e-Nau.
Today, Tahrik Waqf-e-Nau is a thriving institution in which thousands of Ahmadis devote the lives of their children for the sake of the Jama’at and everyday this number continues to swell.
Hazrat Khalifatul Massieh IV (may Allah have mercy on him) and also our present Huzoor, Hazrat Khalifatul Masih V (may Allah be his Helper) delivered a number of Friday Sermons and Addresses to parents and Waqfeen-e-Nau in which they explained the importance of this blessed scheme, the responsibilities of parents, how to bring up these children and the responsibilities of Waqfeen-e-Nau. Hazrat Khalifatul Masih IV(rh) advised Wakalat Waqf-e-Nau to prepare a syllabus for these children as a mean to provide guidance for their education, upbringing and training. Wakalat Waqf-e-Nau and the Waqf-e-Nau Department, London prepared a syllabus in Urdu and English for Waqfeen-e-Nau up to the age of 21.
With the instructions of Huzoor(aba), the newly designed and colourful Waqf-e-Nau syllabus is being published in three parts and is divided in the following age groups. Ages 1-7, Ages 7-15, Ages 15-21.
May Allah enable these children to fulfil the numerous challenges that are ahead of them in the best possible way. Ameen
