System of Wasiyyat
The System of Wasiyyat is a divinely inspired scheme initiated by the Promised Messiah (may peace be on him) himself. Following are some excerpts from his book Risala Al-Wasiyyat or The Will which he wrote in 1905. He wrote:"
“I was shown a place that was named Bahishti Maqbarah (Bahishti: of Paradise; Maqbarah: cemetery) and it was conveyed to me that it contained graves of such selected members of the community as are destined for Heaven.”
“I pray that God may bless it and that He may make this very piece of land Bahishti Maqbarah and make it the resting place of those members of the Jama'at who are pure of heart and who have in reality given precedence to Faith over the world and who have renounced love of the world and submitted themselves to God and who have brought about in themselves a holy change and who have, like the disciples of the Holy Prophet (may peace and blessings of Allah be on him), set example of faithfulness and truthfulness. Ameen, O Lord of the worlds.”

National Ansar Goal: 350 new Ansar to join the System of Wasiyyat
In his closing address at 2016 Ansar Ijtima, Amir Jama'at USA, respected Sahibzadah Mirza Maghfoor Ahmad, reminded us the following wish of Hazrat Khalifatul-Masih V (may Allah be his helper), encouraging us to fulfill that wish by joining the System of Wasiyyat.
“My wish is that in 2008 when hundred years would have passed since the establishment of Khilafat, Insha'allah, in every country of the world, in every Jama'at, at least fifty percent of the earning members who pay Chanda should have already joined this grand and noble system of the Promised Messiah, and would have become the promoters of spirituality and setters of noble standards of sacrifices. This will also be a humble offering to Allah from the Jama'at that it will be presenting to Allah as a token of gratitude on the completion of hundred years of Khilafat. And as the Promised Messiah mentioned that people who are concerned about achieving a goodly ending and offer their prayers, should participate in this scheme.”
