SALIENT FEATURES OF
ANJUMAN WAZIFA-E-SADAAT-O-MOMINEEN PAKISTAN®
It was the 1st day of April, 1912 when the seed of Anjuman Wazifa Sadat was sown by two educationists named Nawab Mosin Meerza and Haji Syed Jilal –ud-Din Haider. They were the lecturer in the Aligarh College and later on at Aitcheson Chief College, Lahore.
The need to lay down the foundation of this organization was to provide monetary assistance to the needy and intellectual students of Shia community over All India Sub-continent.
It is honestly felt that it was the actual time to educate the Shia community of India to have respectable place in the society where the Muslim enmity was at its peak and the Shia were at the top of the list. Moreover, our Holy Prophet(PBUH) and the Aima Tahereen Alaihumesslam very much concentrated upon the need of education. So , it is the duty of every Muslim male and female to learn education For the establishment of any institution or organization the main factor is to manage the funds. The same situation was also faced by these two educationists. However, they managed to create fund from their own pockets. The amount which was contributed by them was Rs.4.50 (Rs.2/by Nawab Mosin Meerza and Rs.2.50 by Haji Jalal –ud-Din Haider) .This was about 2% of their one month salary.
The scholar ship was granted to the needy students as a Qarz-A-Hasna with out any interest or profit. This monetary assistance was not only for the temporal students but also for the students who were studying in the religious schools or Madaress.
In spite of global incidents like partition of India in 1947 and separation of East Pakistan in 1971 , the Anjuman, by the grace of God , continued its journey towards the success and now it has become a strong tree. Many of the Momineen got its fruit and many are getting
