Weekly Madani Halqah

Different mediums are used in every era for the accomplishment of different goals. For example, there was a time when journey was undertaken by the means of a camel, horse or walking etc., whereas airplanes, trains and cars etc., are used these days for the same purpose. Moreover, it is also possible that after some period of time, further new means get invented for the fulfilment of this very task. In short, mediums of accomplishment of different necessities keep changing with the passage of time. Propagation of knowledge [of Islam] is a fundamental need of Muslims. Different mediums have been used for the fulfilment of this purpose throughout different eras.

اَلْحَمْدُلِلّٰہ عَزَّ وَجَلَّ ! Madani movement of the devotees of Rasool, Dawat-e-Islami remains acquainted with the requirements of the modern times for the fulfilment of its Madani aim. It is for this reason that it started one Madani activity with the name of ‘Weekly Madani Halqah’ (previously known as VCD Ijtima’) out of its 12 Madani activities. The basic purpose of this Madani activity is to gather Islamic brothers at somebody’s home in every Zayli Halqah (i.e. in the surroundings of a Masjid) once a week and collectively listen to the Madani Muzakarah of Shaykh-e-Tareeqat, Ameer-e-Ahl-e-Sunnat دَامَـتْ بَـرَكَـاتُـهُـمُ الْـعَـالِـيَـه or VCDs of Bayanaat [speeches] released by Maktaba-tul-Madinah. This weekly Madani Halqah is conducted regularly with punctuality and swapping homes by inviting new Islamic brothers. It starts with Tilawat (recitation of Holy Quran) and Na’at and ends with Salat and Salam and short Du’a. At the end, instead of having tea and snacks, booklets are distributed and individual efforts are performed.

Benefits of the weekly Madani Halqah

Just like other Madani activities, weekly Madani Halqah is also a great means to acquire the knowledge of Deen (Islam) as one attains knowledge of various beneficial facts by listening to a recorded Madani Muzakarah or Bayan [speech]. Moreover, even if one has already listened to the Madani Muzakarah or Bayan before, it will still be beneficial for him to listen to it again. As it is said ‘مَا تَکَـرَّرَ تَقَـرَّرَ’ i.e. something that is repeated holds firm grip in the heart. (‘Umda-tul-Qaari, vol. 9, pp. 90, Taht-al-Hadees: 2375)

Gathering at one place and listening to Wa’z-o-Naseehat (Islamic speeches) is the way of the blessed companions رَضِىَ الـلّٰـهُ تَعَالٰی عَـنْهُم and righteous predecessors. Therefore, following their Seerah, one not only gets the chance of participating in these pious gatherings, but also attains innumerable blessings. You can perform individual efforts upon the new Islamic brothers and bring them close to the Madani environment of Dawat-e-Islami. It becomes quite easy to bring those Islamic brothers close to the Madani environment who do not participate in the Madani activities or come to the Masjid, by inviting them to these weekly Madani Halqahs or conducting these weekly Madani Halqahs in their own homes. It assists in establishing a Madani environment at home. One attains the privilege of acting upon Madani In’aam no. 47, i.e. ‘Did you attentively listen to at least one Bayan or Madani Muzakarah today from audio/video cassette (VCD) in a Cassette Ijtima’ (weekly Madani Halqah) or individually, or watch transmissions of Madani Channel for at least one hour and 12 minutes?’

اَلْحَمْدُلِلّٰہ عَزَّ وَجَلَّ! At present, Weekly Madani Halqahs are taking place at approximately 5,523 places all over Pakistan.
