On March 12th, 1966 Huzoor introduced the Waqfe Arzi project. The purpose of this project is to promote the learning and teaching of the Holy Quran as well as imparting religious knowledge to local members. At their own expense under Waqfe Arzi, thousands of Ahmadis are teaching Quran to the members, exhorting them to do good deeds and shun evil. The net result of this activity is that members of the Community are receiving religious education and moral training, which in turn is strengthening their character. The minimum period required for Short Term Dedication is two weeks at a designated place.
Hazrat Khalifat al-Masih the Third appealed to Ahmadi young boys and girls to raise at least Rs. 50,000 for Waqfe Jadid. Children responded to this appeal with great fervor.
By entrusting this initiative to Ahmadi children, The Caliph of the Age had presented them the opportunity to earn reward from Allah. We earnestly hope that children will continue to contribute generously toward this project.
