History of Lajna Imaillah in Bangladesh and some relevant things

Lajna Imaillah is an international women's organization. On December 25, 1922, Hazrat Musleh Maud, the second caliph of the Ahmadiyya Jamaat, established this organization for the women of the Ahmadiyya Jamaat in Qadian. At first it was limited to Qadian only. It was internationalized in 1923.

The first headquarters of this organization was Umme Naser Saheba. That is, the mother of Hazrat Khalifatul Masih Sales (Rah.). After that Umme Taher Saheba became the Sadar President. That is, the mother of Hazrat Khalifatul Masih Rab (I.). After that Maryam Siddique Saheba took charge of the Sadar. It is to be noted that these three were the wives of Hazrat Musleh Maud (RA). The fourth caliph of the Ahmadiyya Jamaat abolished the international unitary leadership of this organization in 1979 and introduced a national headquarters in every country!


The purpose of forming Lajna Imaillah:  

The word 'shame' is Arabic. It means party or organization and the word 'Imaillah' means servants of Allah. So lajna imaillah means the organization of the slaves of Allah. We know that Allah is not dependent on anyone. Therefore he does not need any nurse. The nurse of God means that she serves the creatures created by God. This naming also implies that the members of Lajna are not the slaves of men, but the slaves of God. Men are servants of God. Likewise women are servants of God. In this way, no one is small. No one is bigger than anyone. Both are equal in the sight of God.

In the Holy Quran, Allah says:

"Wamai Yamal Minas: Salehati Min: Zakarina Aounshah"

-It means "men and women are equal in good deeds or good deeds".

The main purpose of Lajna is to create a true servant of God. Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning):

"I created man and jinn only to worship Me."

This great purpose of human creation which the Creator Himself has described in the Holy Qur'an - so that women can live in harmony with this purpose and inspire their families, ie husbands, children and other relatives to become true slaves - is the main purpose of Lajna Imaillah Qayyim.  

Women make up half of the world's population. Therefore a single effort of men alone can never be fruitful for any success or progress. Therefore, it is obligatory to do everything with women. And this truth was realized by Hazrat Khalifatul Masih Sani Al Musleh Maud (RA).

He says-

"If you are able to complete the correction of fifty percent of the women, then the promised victory of Islam will come."

And that is why she set up separate organizations with women for the success of worldwide preaching. So that Ahmadi women can preach to other women.  

In order to succeed in this work, we need regular prayers, supererogatory worship, supplications, teaching of Qur'an and Hadith, following the teachings of Imam Masood Maud (AS) of the present age and following the orders of the present Caliph (AS). To be always ready to sacrifice one's life, property, time and children and to make the purpose of human creation successful by upholding the holy and great ideals of the Holy Prophet (peace be upon him).

This women's organization of Ahmadi Jamaat is currently established in 202 countries. The organization has built mosques in London, The Hague, Germany and Copenhagen in a single effort. In 1945, a separate organization called 'Naserat' was formed for the young girls. But it is also under Lajna's control.

Lajna Imamullah's first mouthpiece 'Misbah' was published in 1928 from Qadian. At present more magazines are being published from different countries. Lajna Imaillah's quarterly magazine 'Lajna Bulletin' has been published in Bangladesh since 1999. The women of Ahmadi Jamaat are working for the development of Jamaat through their own organization.

Ahmadiyya Jamaat is the only Jamaat established in the outline of Islam given in the Quran. The caliphate system that was introduced through Adam (peace be upon him) was perfected through the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him). Imam Mahdi (as) is the last caliph of Hazrat Muhammad (as). The caliphate that has been established since Imam Mahdi (as) is the caliphate of Imam Mahdi (as). In a word, the caliph of Allah is the messenger of the caliphate. Imam Mahdi (as) is the caliph of Allah on the one hand and the caliph of the Prophet on the other. His caliphs are the caliphate of Christ. One of the caliphs of this caliphate, the caliph Sunny (ra) is the founder of this organization. Therefore the importance of this organization from other organizations is immense. We have to work with the dignity of this important subject.
