Since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, Minhaj-ul-Quran Australia (NSW Chapter) had moved all their events and gatherings online via Zoom and other video conferencing technologies. These events include, but are not limited to, Halqa-e-Durood programs, Dars e Irfan-ul-Quran programs, Halaqa al-Tarbiyya programs, and children’s Irfan ul Quran classes.
From March 2020, we specially converted our Monthly Halqa-e-Durood Program into weekly virtual Halqa-e-Durood taking place every Thursday night of the week under the guidance of Allama Muhammad Ramzan Qadri. The unique feature of these Halqa-e-Durood programs is that we started the recitation of the Dala’il al-Barakat fi al-Tahiyyat wa al-Salawat book along with the Qirat from Holy Quran, Naat-e-Rasool (s.a.w.), and Dawra-e-Hadith (s.a.w.).
The Dala’il al-Barakat book is written by Shaykh-ul-Islam Dr. Muhammad Tahir-ul-Qadri and consists of forty chapters or Manzils of various Durood. Each week one manzil is recited where Allama Muhammad Ramzan Qadri gets all the participants to recite the durood in the congregation.
So far 36 chapters (or Manazil) of the book have been completed over a period of 9 months. This is unique and one-of-its-kind of Halqa-e-Durood series of events in the whole world ever organized by any Minhaj-ul-Quran forum where such a regular recitation (or Dawrah) of such unique Durood has been conducted with such consistency for the sake of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (pbuh).
Amazing thing about these programs is that all 36 programs conducted so far have been video recorded and are available on the Minhaj-ul-Quran Australia (NSW) facebook page here:
Anyone can access these videos and recite the Dala’il al-Barakat book regularly. There are still four more chapters of the book remaining and the final chapter will be recited as part of the Khatam ceremony in the month of February 2021 conducted on the occasion of the Birthday of Shaykh-ul-Islam Dr. Muhammad Tahir-ul-Qadri, insha'Allah.
