The Waqf ‘Ardi Scheme was initiated by Hazrat Khalifatul-Masih III rh in 1966. Its objective was to prepare every Ahmadi member as a Murabbi [Missionary] and to facilitate religious training of all Ahmadis. Under this scheme, groups of Waqifin are sent to outside Jama‘ats for specified periods of time at their own expenses.
The greatest purpose of this scheme is that Ahmadi members can offer their services on a temporary basis to organize special classes in various Jama‘ats for learning and teaching of the Holy Qur’an. Another purpose of the Waqf ‘Ardi Scheme is that the the waqifin can urge Ahmadi members to settle petty differences and advance in the direction of higher goals of this great scheme.
The Waqf ‘Ardi Scheme would not only play a great role in spiritual training of others, but it would equally benefit the waqifin themselves. Before embarking on this mission, the waqifin would be encouraged to overcome their shortcomings by focusing on prayers and gaining more religious knowledge through studies. This way, they would become excellent role models for others. WAQF ‘ARDI - GREAT SACRIFICEAll Missionaries and Office Bearers should urge every Ahmadi (man or woman) to participate inthis great scheme, which undoubtedly demands great sacrifice. However, one should neverforget that without sacrifices, one cannot win the pleasure of Allah.
