Khidmat-e-Khalq (Humanitarian Service)

The department of Khidmat-e-Khalq serves the wider community. Whether cheerfully serving the guests at the Annual Jalsa Salana or serving a warm meal at our Annual National Ijtema’a, Khidmat-e-Khalq is hard at work serving the community. The Muhtamim designs and implements programs to assist in poverty alleviation in the local community, regardless of whether the recipient is a Muslim or not.

Almighty Allah says in Holy Quran “you are the best people raised for the good of mankind”. As per this, we have to chalk out and implement the programs of services to Humanity. The real sympathy towards human beings is to be created among Khuddam.

The Khuddam shall be ready to dedicate themselves in every kind of service to humanity without any discrimination of religion, creed and color in terms of Quranic script. Make collective programmes of community services in terms of this spirit. At times when national calamities occur, we should put every kind of effort in helping the victims. Motivate Khuddam to fulfill the needs of suffering people, individually also.
