“Waqf-e-Arzi is a way of reforming the inner self. The second biggest benefit of the Waqf-e-Arzi scheme is that those who go on it get to self examine themselves in certain aspects. They become aware of some of their own weaknesses before they leave, and get inclined towards prayers. In other words, a large part of the preparation for going on Waqf is that they get inclined towards praying, and increasing their religious knowledge or efforts at renewing it. They increase their study of books before leaving, and take some books with them. They contemplate, and keep an eye on their negligence, carelessness and weaknesses and try to correct them. They have the desire that when they go to another place, they should set a good example for them, and not be a cause for them losing their faith. Thus, Waqf-e-Arzi delegations have benefited immensely from their blessings of prayers.” (Daily Al Fazl 12th Feb 1977)
