He stayed in the residence of the Khalifa for a period of two or three months continuously. Similarly, with the approval of Hazrat Musleh-e-Maud (ra) in the middle of 1962, an institute called Al-Nusrat was established for the care, education and upbringing of orphaned and poor children. Later, Hazrat Khalifatul Masih III (rh) changed its name to Imdad-e-Tulaba [help and support for students]. He was in charge of this department from 1978 until July 1983.
