The second Khalifa to the Promised Messiah (AS) and founder of Majlis Khuddamul Ahmadiyya, Hazrat Mirza Bashiruddin Mahmood Ahmad (RA) once said:
“…Sinning is also caused by habits of laziness and lack of organised hours of daily life. A person tends to take things easy. He is carefree. He has no inclination to work. when the time comes, he tends to make light of what he has to do. Time passes and he suddenly finds himself drinking. Once a sincere companion of the Holy Prophet (on him be peace and blessings) was all but ready to go to the battlefield but he made no preparation for it. He had persuaded himself that when the time came he would be able to join the party with ease. He continued to leave his preparations to the end. The result was he was left behind and could not join the army. Laziness, therefore, is often the cause of sin. Man is lazy and easy-going and is incapable of commanding himself to get up and go.” (extract from Way of the Seeker, originally from Jalsa Salana Qadian 1925)
It is no wonder then, that when Hazrat Khalifatul Masih II (RA) formulated the constitution of Majlis Khuddamul Ahmadiyya, a department dedicated to eradicating unemployment and idleness among young Ahmadi men was provided for. Even in the current age where some youngsters in society are deemed as becoming more lazy and materialistic than the generation that preceded them, due to a culture that breeds self-entitlement, the role that is performed by the Department for Sanat-o-Tijarat has never been more vital. To help fulfil the vision and objectives set for this department, MKA UK Sanat-o-Tijarat can help Khuddam to develop and excel in their career plans by providing advice on jobs and career paths, and help to develop employability skills.

Once an individual finds their career path, it becomes a challenge to try and secure a job in that area, particularly given the level of competition faced for each job vacancy. That is why the MKA CV Clinic is not only there to help work alongside the individual to structure their CV and/or online presence e.g. Linked profile; but to also help conduct mock telephone/skype/face to face interviews, to give the prospective applicant as much preparation as possible.
Mo’akhaat Mentoring Programme
The word ‘Mo’akhaat’ is an Arabic term meaning Brotherhood, taken from the inspirational example set by the Holy Prophet (saw) when he forged a bond of brotherhood between the Ansar (residents of Medina) and the Muhajirin (those who emigrated from Mecca). The purpose of the Mo’akhaat Mentoring Programme is to help connect those experienced professionals who are already established in their careers with individuals who are trying to enter their chosen career path and can greatly benefit from advice and hindsight.
