Khidmat-e-Khalq means service of all humanity as Hazrat Musleh Maud RA stated:

“By Khidmat Khalq I do not mean service of Ahmadis or Muslims alone, rather I means service of all creations of Allah, without distinction of religion or nation, to the extent that even if an enemy is in difficulty, you should help him.  This is true sense of Khidmat Khalq”.

(30th October 1952-Al Fazl 1st November 1952)

“And worship Allah and associate naught with Him, and show kindness to parents, and to kindred, and orphans, and the needy, and to the neighbour that is a kinsman and the neighbour that is a stranger, and the companion by your side, and the wayfarer, and those whom your right hands possess. Surely, Allah loves not the proud and the boastful”.

(Holy Quran 4:37)
