Dear Parents/ Children
By the grace of Allah UK Jammat is working on Daftar Atfal, which was inaugurated by Hazrat Khalifatul Masih – III (rh) in 1966.
Huzur (aba) during his Friday sermon said:
“of course one is not supposed to over-burden oneself and has to look after the needs of the family. However family expenses should not be unrestrained and should not be fuelled by brazen commercialism. Children should be coached in giving, to give out of their pocket money, so that in future it becomes their key preference.
Further more Huzur (aba) said: “He had worked out that if families living in the West, who frequently treated their children to burgers and such like, rather then eat out, if twice a month, they saved the money instead to give it to Waqf e Jadid, there could be a 20% to 30% increase in the contribution.” (Friday Sermon 12 Jan 2007)
The promise we are taking is under the guideline of Huzur (aba) so its important the children should write to Huzur (aba) about their Waqf-eJadid promise and request for prayers for fulfilment of their promise and share their idea how they will going to save money for Waqf-e-Jadid.
If children are young, parents can write on behalf, likewise Office bearer’s can also send a message to Huzur (aba) about their plan and efforts toward Waqf-e-Jadid.
Once we receive your message it will be reviewed by our team, and a consolidate list of prayers will be forward to Private Secretary ‘s office inshallah.
