Note: It is necessary to mention in every monthly report about the steps taken for training and reforming.

  1. Educational and training classes and gatherings: Every Majlis, during the seasonal vacations depending upon the circumstances, has to conduct educational and training classes and shall hold Ijtema in the month of august. Likewise, an annual gathering is to be held at state level. The local training classes shall be conducted at least once in fortnight.
  2. Waqf-e-Arzi, a blessed scheme: The blessed scheme of Waqf-e-Arzi has been proved to be the most effective source of training for every individual of Jama’at especially young people and children, this scheme has come up with plenty of good results.
  3. Every Majlis shall induce Khuddam to take part in this blessed scheme. It is necessary for Khuddam to serve in nearby places. Keeping in view the importance of this scheme, Hadhrat Khalifatul Masih V at has instituted as separate nazarath of Taleemul Quran Waqf-e-Arzi.
  4. Muslim Television Ahmadiyya InternationalBy the grace of Allah, among many blessings of Khilafat-e-Rabia, “MTA international” is one of such greatest blessings.In the modern age, the vulgar programs of TV, nudity and obscenity is creating an ill effect on youth and younger generation of the world. But Almighty Allah has granted us the bounty of MTA through which Huzoor ATBA is presenting himself through various programmes. The MTA has become an unparallel institute, functioning round the clock, throughout the year and through which we can quench our religious, material, spiritual and educational thirst. Now the need of the hour is to watch the programmes as much as possible specially the sermons of Huzoor, his addresses and Majlis irfaan (Q & A session) “mulaqat”. These programmes are like overflowing river. Now it is not enough to watch MTA by ourselves only, but make others also to listen MTA.Then only the purpose of MTA will be served. Majlis should prepare and send excellent and informative programmes for MTA. For this a separate supervisor is to be appointed to look after the national office and shall be kept informed about the various efforts taken in this regard.
  5. Tahreek Waqf-e-NouIn view of the huge responsibilities coming ahead on our Jama’at and in accordance with the will of Allah, Syedna Hadhrat Khalifatul Masih IV RA launched a scheme of Waqf-e-Nou on 3rd April 1987 to prepare a divine force. By the grace of Allah, a large number of Waqfeen-e-Nou has joined the organization of Khuddamul Ahmadiyya by this time. It is a precious property entrusted by Almighty Allah, which is growing in our hands or in our surroundings. We owe a great responsibility to educate and train them.So most lucky are those parents who have the opportunity of offering their children in the cause of Allah.Every Majlis shall try to educate and train them at their end in terms of the directives received as and when from the markaz. Prepare them in relation to age and syllabus of Waqf-e- Nou. Thus, every possible effort shall be made to bring them up in such a way that they shall be able to fulfill the object of this scheme in the most dignified manner.
  6. Special programmeThe department of training is the essence of all departments; the object of religion is to reform the mankind and to establish a live relationship with Allah. A special programme coming under the jurisdiction of this department is noted below. The office bearers have to pay special attention to it.

The following virtues are to be generally practiced with special care.

  • Show the sense of honour towards the unity of Allah and be loyal to Him.

  • Special attention shall be given regarding congregational prayers and for this purpose, select some Khuddam who are to be advised and reformed and make them first habitual to offer congregational prayers, so that by the end of the year there shall not be any Khadim who is not punctual in prayers. Moreover, Saiqeen shall have to bring the members of his group (Hizb) to mosque for prayers. In monthly reports also the result of such efforts shall be mentioned with definite figures.
  • Majlis shall pay full attention towards the scheme of memorizing the Holy Quran (Tahreeq Hifz Quran) launched by Hadhrat Khalifatul Masih III RA. A large number of Khuddam is to be prepared for memorizing at least one volume (Parah) of the Holy Quran. We shall have to maintain a record of such Khuddam who have memorized one Parah (volume), their names and addresses are to be furnished to the national (mulki) office. Ultimately these names shall be sent to Huzoor for prayers, Insha Allah.

 

  • Hadhrat Khalifatul Masih IV RA, during his Friday sermon dated 24th November 1989 had drawn our attention towards the five basic moral qualities which should be practiced in day-to-day life. The five moral qualities are:
    • Truth
    • Use of soft and clean language
    • Sympathy towards creatures
    • Broad courage
    • Firm determination and bravery.

In the light of Khulfas sermons the standard of offering of namaz shall have to be improved and also the Quranic and traditional daily prayers also to be learnt by heart.
Special arrangements shall have to be made for listening and make others listening Huzoor’s sermons. Further, Khuddam shall be advised to prepare gist of sermons.

The Tarbiyyat team also provides new Ahmadis with education and training to promote ongoing spiritual and moral progression.
