Waqf-e-Nau USA Wasiyyat Drive

The System of Wasiyyat is a divinely inspired scheme initiated by the Promised Messiah (may peace be on him) himself. Wasiyyat is the making of a will in the favor of the Community, pledging 1/10 to 1/3 of one’s total assets to the Jama’at at the time of one’s death. A person who has pledged Wasiyyat is known as a Moosi and must also donate 1/10 to 1/3 of his earnings yearly for the cause of Islam.

These funds are used for propagation of Islam by dissemination of Qur’anic knowledge, publishing religious books, and meeting expenses of missionaries along with other matters that may help in the advancement of Islam. These funds are also used to help those in need who do not have sufficient means of livelihood. Other conditions associated with this blessed scheme are those of piety and righteousness. To do Wasiyyat is a highly blessed act and the Promised Messiah (may peace be on him) has prayed for people who do Wasiyyat.

If you need help with filling the form or join a book-reading group, please reach out to Assistant Secretary Waqf-e-Nau, Bilal Ahmad Raja Sahib at Bilal.Raja@ahmadiyya.us

Common Hesitation:

“If someone says that he cannot join the Wasiyyat because he is unable to fulfill the conditions of the Wasiyyat, then you can ask them whether they are fulfilling the ten conditions of Bai’at, and that if they are not doing so then they cannot even remain an Ahmadi. The aim is to try to live up to these conditions, and one should continue to strive towards this.”

(Hadhrat Khalifat-ul-Masih V aba – Meeting with National Amla Majlis Khuddam-ul-Ahmadiyya New Zealand on Nov 1st 2013)

Syedna Hadrat Khalifatul V(aba) said: “Some people say that their standards of piety are not up to a level that would satisfy the conditions laid out by the Promised Messiah(as). Let them beware that this System is so revolutionary that having entered it with good intention, and after entry as per Hadrat Masih-e-Maoud(as)’s sayings, effort is made for self-improvment, then through the blessings of this System, several years’ journey for spiritual change can happen in days, and of days in hours.”

لَا یُکَلِّفُ اللّٰہُ نَفۡسًا اِلَّا وُسۡعَہَا

‘Allah burdens not any soul beyond its capacity’ (2:287)

اَلشَّیۡطٰنُ یَعِدُکُمُ الۡفَقۡرَ وَیَاۡمُرُکُمۡ بِالۡفَحۡشَآءِ ۚ وَاللّٰہُ یَعِدُکُمۡ مَّغۡفِرَۃً مِّنۡہُ وَفَضۡلًا ؕ وَاللّٰہُ وَاسِعٌ عَلِیۡمٌ

‘Satan threatens you with poverty and enjoins upon you what is foul, whereas Allah promises you forgiveness from Himself and bounty. And Allah is Bountiful, All-Knowing.’ (2:269)

“There is no doubt that merely a true believer commits to Wasiyyat. But there is also no doubt that if a person has some weaknesses in him, but then joins Wasiyyat, according to this promise of Allah that only those deserving heaven will be buried in Bahasti-Maqbarah, gets a chance to correct his actions. So Wasiyyat is the perfect way to self-reformation, because who ever will join Nizaam-e- Wasiyyat, even if at a certain time he is not deserving of paradise, he will become deserving of it and if his actions lack too much, then God will reveal his hypocrisy and remove him from the institution of Wasiyyat. Therefore, the one who joins Wasiyyat, Allah will either give him the chance for self-reformation and make him deserving of paradise, or he will remove him from Wasiyyat and showcase his hypocrisy.”

The Promised Messiah as wrote in his book “The Will”:

“But remember, these are the Works of God Almighty, and He does what He wills. Indeed, He has willed that by this scheme He shall distinguish between a hypocrite and a believer.”

“….I feel that in present day trials too the faithful ones of the highest order who have in fact given precedence to faith over worldliness will stand distinguished from others and it shall be proved that they have fulfilled their pledge of Bai‘at and established their bona fides. No doubt this institution [of Wasiyyat] will be very hard on the hypocrites, for it will expose them and after they die, be they men or women, they will certainly not be buried in this graveyard. But those who excel in this matter will be counted among the righteous and forever and always shall they be the recipients of Divine blessings.”

Hadhrat Musleh e Maud ra said:

“…….He (the Promised Messiahas) goes on to say that the test of every believer is that he should take part in this scheme and should seek special grace of Allah through it. Only hypocrites shall keep out of it. In other words, the scheme is not mandatory, but at the same time He said that it is a test of your faith. If you are anxious to win the pleasure of Allah and to deserve the real Paradise, you must make this sacrifice. If, on the other hand, these things have no value in your eyes, you can retain your properties in this world; neither Allah nor the Movement founded under His Command have any use for them. (Nizam-e-Nau, p. 118)

“And why is it that you spend Not in the way of Allah, while to Allah belongs the heritage of the heavens and the earth? Those of you who spent and fought before the Victory are not equal to those who did so later. They are greater in rank than those who spent and fought afterwards.” (Holy Quran – 57:11)


Hazrat Abdullah bin Mas‘ud(ra) states: “During the Battle of Badr, I witnessed a particular moment in which Hazrat Miqdad(ra) bin Aswad said something and if I was the one who had said this, the blessings of it would be even dearer to me than all the pious deeds I have carried out. It so happened that Hazrat Miqdad(ra) went to the Holy Prophet(sa) as he was praying against the disbelievers, and said, ‘O Messenger (sa) of Allah, we shall not utter what the people of Moses (as) said to him:

فَاذْھَبْ اَنْتَ وَ رَبُّکَ فَقَاتِلَا۔ وَلٰکِنَّا نُقَاتِلُ عَنْ يَمِيْنِکَ وَعَنْ شِمَالِکَ وَبَيَنْ يَدَيْکَ وَخَلْفَکَ

That is: ‘Go thou and thy Lord and fight.’ Certainly not! Rather, we shall fight on your right and on your left and in front of you and behind you.’ I saw that the blessed countenance of the Holy Prophet(sa) began to glow with joy and he was really pleased with what Hazrat Miqdad(ra) had said.”

“One may join (Wasiyyat) when they have reached an age of maturity; around the age of 15 or 16. If one joins at the age of 15, then one should renew their commitment (to the scheme) at the age of 17 or 18 and express their willingness to continue being a part of the scheme.

(Hadrat Khalifatul Massih V aba, Virtual Mulaqat 2023)

“The people who join this institution should, according to the Promised Messiah (as) be such, who desire a virtuous end and are regular in their worship. For this purpose, the best time is when one is young….Therefore Khuddam-ul-Ahmadiyya, Saff-e-dum of AnsarUllah and Lajna Imaillah should try their best to take part in this divine scheme.”

(Hadrat Khalifatul Massih V aba, Concluding Address Jalsa Salana UK 2004)

“On the day when a man flees from his brother”, “And from his mother and his father,” “And from his wife and his sons,” “Every man among them that day will have concern enough to make him indifferent to others” (Holy Quran 80:35 – 38)


“The Day when there will not benefit [anyone] wealth or children, But only one who comes to Allah with a sound heart. And Paradise will be brought near to the righteous.” (Al-Shu’ara Verses 89-91)


The Promised Messiah as said:

“Rejoice and be happy that the field of achieving nearness to God is vacant. Every nation is in love with the world and to what pleases God the world pays no attention. Now is the time for those who wish to enter this door that they, mustering all their strength, show their mettle and win the much coveted prize from God…So, blessed is one who believes in what God says and does not fear the trials which he suffers in His path.” (Al-Wassiyat)

The Promised Messiah (as) said:

“No ignorant person should think that this graveyard and the arrangements for it fall under the category of Bid‘at (an unwarranted innovation). For this arrangement is in accordance with the Divine revelation and there is no element of human involvement in it. And no one should wonder how by just being buried in this graveyard one can enter Heaven? The idea behind it all is not that this piece of land will make anyone worthy of Heaven; rather the Word of God means that only those will be burred here who are already worthy of Heaven.…those who, having been informed of this Divine programme, immediately and without hesitation become anxious to subscribe the tenth part of their property in the way of Allah—nay, they even show greater fervour in the cause of Allah—set a seal on their faith.”

وَاِذَا الۡجَنَّۃُ اُزۡلِفَتۡ

When Paradise is brought near ..” (81:14)

Hazrat Khalifatul Masih II (ra) in a sermon delivered on August 26, 1932 in explaining this verse noted “Allah has blessed us with a great opportunity. Paradise has been made approachable. The system of Al Wasiyyat is a path to this…”

Hazrat Khalifatul Masih II (ra) further said:

“I understand that its correct interpretation is Wasiyyat i.e., during the time of the Promised Messiah (as), Paradise will be so manifest that people shall be convinced that so and so has actually entered it.”


National Waqf-e-Nau Department is encouraging all Waqifeen and Waqifaat-e-Nau, who are over the age of 15, to do Wasiyyat and become a Moosi. Our goal is to achieve 100% of Waqifeen-e-Nau to join the blessed scheme of Wasiyyat.

Current Drive: March 12th – April 22, 2024

The first step to doing Wasiyyat is to read Al-Wasiyyat (The Will) by the Promised Messiah (may peace be on him). 

You should then fill out the Wasiyyat Form after carefully reading the instructions.

Any Ahmadi who is a good-standing member of the Community may petition to be included in the system of Wasiyyat. However, our department’s goal is aimed at promoting the scheme of Wasiyyat among Waqifeen-e-Nau (both boys and girls) and as such we are focussing on producing Waqf-e-Nau Moosian.

We urge all Waqifeen and Waqifaat-e-Nau to consider joining the system of Wasiyyat soon after they turn 15. However, generally an adult Ahmadi may petition for their Wasiyyat at any time during their adulthood.

Yes, we are happy to help you with this. Any Waqf-e-Nau boy or a girl needing help should reach out to Bilal Raja Sahib at Bilal.Raja@ahmadiyya.us to direct Wasiyyat form related questions.

Please email us at Bilal.Raja@ahmadiyya.us. For information about Wasiyyat in general, you may also contact your Jamaat’s local Wasiyyat Secretary Sahib.
