Among the several goals of Minhaj-ul-Quran, one of the main goal is to reconnect or strengthen our relationship with the Holy Quran, the book of Almighty Allah’s revelations, to the beloved Prophet Muhammad (SAW). The Quran is transmitted in Arabic, and the inherent quality of the Arabic script is the potential for developing a variety of ornamental forms. The Calligraphy is principally a means to transmit a text into a decorative form. Considering Calligraphy, or beautiful writing, is the most highly regarded and most fundamental element of Islamic art and its development is strongly tied to the Quran, Minhaj-ul-Quran Dallas has organized Calligraphy workshop and amazing Islamic art and Calligraphy exhibition at Jame’ Hasan al-Basri Minahaj-ul-Quran Community Center in Dallas, Texas on Saturday, May 16 and Sunday, May 17, 2015.

Worst incident in the history of Pakistan – State Terrorism in Lahore at the Secretariat of Minhaj-ul-Quran International
Minhaj-ul-Quran USA vehemently condemned the worst incident in the history of the Pakistan of brutal killings of innocent unarmed citizens including women, children and elderly at Minhaj-ul-Quran Secretariat Lahore on Monday, June 17, 2014.
Minhaj-ul-Qur’an International (MQI) is an organization with branches and centers in more than 90 countries around the globe, working for the promotion of peace and harmony between communities and the revival of spiritual endeavor based on the true teachings of Islam. Its Main Secretariat is in Lahore, Model Town where the innocent citizens of Pakistan were fired upon by the Punjab Police for resisting the removal of legally authorized barriers that were set 4 years ago, upon the orders of the High Court of Pakistan, for security reasons. The barriers were erected at the Secretariat and at the residence of the founder of Minhaj-ul-Quran International, Shaykh-ul-Islam Dr. Muhammad Tahir-ul Qadri, in the Model Town Extension area.
Instead of holding talks with the PAT leadership in daylight, the coward police, the state terrorists, chose to launch an attack on after midnight and sprayed a volley of tear-gas shells at the unarmed PAT workers without realizing that it was a residential area where elderly citizens, women and children also lived. Many families had to leave their tear-gas-filled houses in haphazard manners. Police blindly fired tear-gas shells of which some landed on locals’ residences. The local residents reported that the Lahore police action was barbaric and inhuman.
