While attending Jalsa Salana in person may not always be possible, it doesn’t mean you can’t experience the spirit and blessings of the event from the comfort of your own home. With a few simple tips, you can create a memorable Jalsa experience at home.
Tune in to Live Jalsa Salana Coverage on MTA:
Start your day by listening to the live Jalsa Salana coverage on MTA. From the morning sessions to the inspirational speeches of beloved Huzoor (aba), immerse yourself in the spiritual atmosphere by following the Jalsa proceedings broadcast on MTA.
Pray in Congregation:
Gather your family members and pray together in congregation. Establish a designated prayer area in your home where you can come together and offer Salat (prayer) as a united front. Even better, earn extra blessings by praying at your local Mosque or Salat centre if available.
Recreate the Langar Experience:
One of the highlights of Jalsa Salana is the Langar Khana. To replicate this experience at home, prepare a traditional dish such as Aloo Ghost (potato meat curry), Daal (lentils), and Roti (flatbread). Enjoy the meal with your family, emphasizing the spirit of sharing and gratitude. Why not distribute the food to your neighbours and use it as an opportunity to explain the Jalsa Salana and its significance.
Respond to “Nara-e-Takbeer”:
During Jalsa Salana, the slogan “Nara-e-Takbeer” (Praise Thy Lord) is raised, followed by the resounding response of “Allahu Akbar” (Allah is the Greatest). Embrace this tradition at home by reciting these slogans with humble enthusiasm and devotion. It will infuse your home with the spirit of Jalsa and serve as a reminder of the blessings and unity experienced at the physical event.
