We just wanted to post some quotes.
- Waqfeen (life devotees) and Community office holders should make this prayer [v 287 of Surah Al Baqarah] in abundance. (October 6, 2006)
- Among the duties of Khilafat, justice ranks very high. The office holders of the Community should be mindful that they represent the Khalifa in their tasks and ought to carry out their obligations fully mindful that God is ever watching them. If they are angry with someone over something, they should wait a couple of days before handling the specific matter. (November 10, 2006)
- Huzur said that on his instruction Ameer Sahib has carried out a survey, which informs us that the rate of incidents of culpability amongst men (regarding commitment of excesses) are three times that of women, whereas in 30% to 40% of matters it is the in-laws who create the friction…. Regarding this issue if similar surveys were carried out in USA or Canada as the one in the UK, a similar picture would emerge. The department of Tarbiyyat and all the auxiliaries need to be very pro-active in this matter. (November 10, 2006)
- The Community has office-holders who work as representatives of the Khalifa of the time. It is their obligation to establish fairness in the real sense. Each office holder is directly accountable for his/her actions but has the added responsibility of representing the Khalifa of the time. They should bear in mind that if they deem they can keep the Khalifa of the time in the dark over some matter, nothing is hidden from the One Who is the real Master. (April 6, 2007)
- When electing office-holders, prayers should be made and people should be chosen on merit rather than friendship and kinship. (April 6, 2007)
- If [Office holders] are not discharging their obligations properly then they are not honouring their responsibility in the spirit [quoted Hadith] of looking after the Master’s property, which in this instance, has been given to them by the Khalifa of the time. (April 6, 2007)
- There are usually complaints from the women’s side that the Salat rows are not straight and that even office holders stand in uneven rows. Another complaint is that elderly or unwell ladies place chairs in the middle of rows to offer their Salat. This usually takes place at large gatherings like Jalsa etc. Those who have to offer their Salat sitting on chairs should move to one side or at the back. (April 13, 2007)
