Itikaf 2022 gets underway
Thousands of the faithful joined Itikaf 2022 organized under the banner of Minhaj-ul-Quran International in the evening of Friday. Chairman MQI Supreme Council Dr Hassan Mohi-ud-Din Qadri and MQI Secretary General Khurram Nawaz Gandapur welcomed the residents of Itikaf as they turned up in their hundreds at the venue in Baghdad Town. The arrangements for Sehr and Iftar have already been made. More than 500 workers have been deputed to make arrangements. Lahore Police has also deputed its teams for the security of Itikaf City.
Shaykh-ul-Islam Dr Muhammad Tahir-ul-Qadri will deliver his special addressed after Tarawih prayer every night. More than 2000 women are also part of Itikaf City. Separate lodging and prayer arrangements have been made for them.
It is pertinent to mention here that MQI has made elaborate arrangements for the facilitation of the faithful. Itikaf City has been divided into various blocs. Huge fans have been placed in the courtyard of Jamy Al-Minhaj on both sides in view of the hot weather conditions.
A control room has been set up for the purpose of coordination between the various committees. A well-knit system has been evolved for the supply of food at Sahar and Iftar. The residents of Itikaf City will dedicate their ten days to worship, purification of self and spiritual enlightenment of the heart. People from the various cities of Pakistan traveled all the way to Lahore to join Itikaf. Many faithful have come from abroad to be blessed from the spiritual rewards in the last ten days of the holy month.
