It is not only men and boys who can take part in this Jihad of the Pen, rather, our women and girls can, and must, take part.” (www.pressahmadiyya.com/press-releases/2017/02/head-ahmadiyya-muslim-community-addresses-female-muslim-youth-event-waqfat-e-nau-ijtema-london/)
26 February 2010: During his Friday Sermon on this day, Hazrat Khalifatul Masih Vaa shed light on the Islamic teachings in regard to taking care of orphans, and advised Ahmadis living in western countries to participate in the Orphans Fund, which serves orphans in Pakistan.
Huzooraa said he wants to especially encourage the Pakistani Ahmadis residing in the West to participate in this fund because what could be more fortunate for a believer than being in the company of the Holy Prophetsa in paradise as a result of their caring for orphans as has been mentioned in a hadith. Huzooraa added, there is ample room for everyone to contribute, and he estimated that if each Ahmadi family member in the West donated seven to ten pounds annually, it would go a long way in helping the orphans in Pakistan and this small amount can play a significant role in transforming the lives of many orphans.

“However, this is not the era of the Jihad of the Sword; rather, we are living in an age where people are attacking Islam through literature, through the media, through the internet and through other similar means, and so, it is your duty to counter the allegations made against Islam in a like manner.” (Ibid.)

Huzooraa stressed the importance of the following Quranic prayer as well as some other prayers:
رَبَّنَا لَا تُزِغْ قُلُوْبَنَا بَعْدَ اِذْ هَدَيْتَنَا وَهَبْ لَنَا مِنْ لَّدُنْكَ رَحْمَةً اِنَّكَ اَنْتَ الْوَهَّابُ

Huzooraa said he was extremely devoted to Khilafat and loved the Khalifa of the time.

Huzooraa said we invite our adversaries to look at the teachings and contents of the Holy Quran attentively and discern its excellences with respect to its spiritual, moral and social guidance for mankind. Teachings of Islam are in accordance with nature, but it is necessary to have a pious heart to understand them.

The local people should come to see how you care for them and fulfil their rights.” (“Nasir Mosque inaugurated by Hazrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad”, www.pressahmadiyya.com)
In the evening, a special reception, attended by more than 180 dignitaries and guests, was held to mark the opening of the mosque, during which Huzooraa said, “A person’s prayers will not be accepted if they do not seek to help the poor and deprived. A person’s prayers will not be accepted if they are not fulfilling the rights of orphans. A person’s prayers will not be accepted if they are not striving to end all forms of slavery. And a person’s prayers will not be accepted if they do not show mercy to one another and indeed to all forms of God’s creation.” (Ibid.)
