Chairman MQI Supreme Council Dr Hassan Mohi-ud-Din Qadri addressed the participants of Itikaf City on the subject of etiquettes of company and reform of one’s conduct. He said that Itikaf is a worship that is aimed at reforming our inner self. He said that undertaking a journey and isolating oneself from others with the intention of purification of the heart is a divine attribute. He said that the thousands of the faithful who have come from far and wide to join Itikaf City are the blessed people of Allah.
Dr Hassan Mohi-ud-Din Qadri said that Itikaf is the means of strengthening our bond with Allah Almighty and His Prophet (PBUH). He said that the residents of Itikaf City spend the ten days of the holy month of Ramadan every year under the shadow of the shrine of Huzoor Qudwat-ul-Awliya’ Sayyiduna Tahir Ala-ud-Din al-Qadri al-Gillani (R.A.) and they also have the benefit of listening to the enlightening speeches of Shaykh-ul-Islam Dr Muhammad Tahir-ul-Qadri on a variety of subjects.
Chairman Supreme Council asked the faithful to fully use the opportunity of ten days to introspect, and reset the priorities of life. He said that a meeting where Allah’s Name is mentioned, His praises are sung and education is imparted are overwhelmed by Allah’s mercy and blessings. He said that Itikaf is a Sunnah of the Holy Prophet (SAW) which removes the rust of greed, immoral desires and spiritual disorder and enables us to hold ourselves to account.
