What is Wasiyyat?
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.
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.
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.
Syedna Hadrat Khalifatul Masih V (AB) 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?
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’s (AS) sayings, effort is made for self improvement, then through the blessings of this System several years journey for spiritual change can happen in days, and of days in hours.” (Al-FazI International, UK, Vol. 11, Issue No. 50, December 10, 2004).
