On Friday 28th June 2013, MQI Bradford was proud to host an impromptu visit by Shaykh-ul-Islam Dr Muhammad Tahir-ul-Qadri. The visit commenced with a tour of the newly acquired site, a disused industrial complex spread over 2.2acres. Insha’Allah this new site will become the heart of MQI UK and Europe, a headquarters aiding the advancement and progression of Minhaj-ul-Quran International UK.
Through generous donations from MQI members and affiliates, MQI UK successfully completed purchase of the new site. The site will soon be developed into a headquarters accommodating the rapid growth and expansion of MQI UK & Europe at large. During the tour of the building, Shaykh-ul-Islam Dr Muhammad Tahir-ul-Qadri instructed the NEC president Shaykh Muhammad Afzal Saeedi to build a headquarters which would reflect the values of MQI and will enhance the vision & ideology of MQI worldwide. It will incorporate demands of the local community, serving as a centre for education, a social and community relations and health and well-being. It will encompass the need to progress MQI UK further to ensure that it is developed towards fulfilling the vision set by our founding leader Shaykh-ul-Islam Dr Muhammad Tahir-ul-Qadri.
Shaykh-ul-Islam acknowledged the hard work and efforts of everyone and also expressed his appreciation. He was impressed at the huge potential of the building. The ceremony was concluded by a final prayer from Shaykh-ul-Islam who prayed for the sustainable and successful future of the project.
The following morning, a further meeting was arranged with the architects and Shaykh-ul-Islam was given a comprehensive briefing on the new site and presented some potential options. Shaykh-ul-Islam also gave instructions to the architects to incorporate certain aspects within the planned development of the site.
