As soon as you turn 15, you must rededicate and renew your bond with Hazrat Khalifatul Masih (aba) that you will serve Jama’at. This is a critical & mandatory milestone of a life of a Waqf-e-Nau. Please fill the form out below or click the link to Open a new Window.
“You should always remember that you are the section of the Jama’at whose parents have made a pledge with Allah to dedicate your lives for the cause of the Jama’at and Islam. Therefore, always understand and recognize your importance, and never break the promise which your parents made. In other words, your parents followed the example of Hannah, the mother of Hazrat Maryam. The true sacrifice she made and the example she set is mentioned in Sura-Al-Imran, where it states: ‘Remember when a woman of Imran said My Lord, I have vowed to thee what is in my womb to be dedicated to thy service, So, does thou accept it of me. Thou alone is all-hearing all knowing’. (Chapter 3, verse: 36) Most of you are either 15 years of age or older and you have chosen to renew this pledge to dedicate yourself to the service of the Jama’at. In order to fulfill the pledge that was initially made by your parents, you must present yourself formally to the Jama’at and offer your services, once you have completed your education. Already, there is a group amongst you which has joined Jamia Ahmadiyya and so having pledged to serve Islam, is now preparing itself for the great task ahead. InshaAllah, this year, the first batch of missionaries will graduate from the Jamia UK and will be able to fulfill the pledge that was made initially by their parents and later renewed by them on their own accord. May Allah grant all of them the ability to do so. However, apart from those who are studying in Jamia, there are many other Waqf-e-Nau who are pursuing other fields of study. You should always remember that you can only truly count yourselves as a Waqf if after completion of your studies, you present yourselves to the Jama’at.”
