Lailathul Qadr prayers in Dammam: Report By Taher Mohammad Saheb
Taraveeh & Dugana Lailatul Qadr Prayers in Dammam 
This humble Khadim of Groh-e-Mehdavia wishes Dugana Lailathul Qadr Mubarak to one and all, especially the Organizers (individuals / collective) around the world for hosting this holy event as a religious necessity.
 In Dammam, we do not have any Mehdavia religious Organisation / Committee or Society, unlike Riyadh and Jeddah. Since decade’s individuals are organizing and hosting this event regularly, but since last 10 years Janab Syed Shahabuddin “Murshid Miyan” is shouldering the responsibility of continuously hosting and organizing all Mehdavia activities and events round the year at his residence on his own expense including the Dugana Prayers etc. I extend my good wishes for him and his family. May Allah reward them here and hereafter.
 Alhamdulillah, this year also the residents of the Eastern Province of Saudi Arabia especially of Dammam, Khobar and adjoining areas were honored to offer the Taraveeh Prayers from 1st to 3rd Ramzan as usual at the residence of Janab Syed Shahabuddin Murshid Miyan Sahab. The prayers were lead by Janab Syed Nusrath Ali Al-Mehdavi.

 For Dugana prayers, as usual large number of residents from Eastern Province especially of Dammam, Khobar, Jubail, Hasa and other adjoining areas gathered and some faithfuls arrived from far away Yanbu to offer Dugana Lailathul Qadr prayer in the Night between 26 & 27 Ramzan lead by Janab Syed Nusrath Ali Al-Mehdavi. As per the program schedule, from 1:30 AM to 2:00 AM, Janab Syed Ibrahim Ashrafi Sahab addressed on ‘Importance and sanctity of the night of Qadr’. At 2:05 AM the gathering stood to offer Esha Sunnath prayers, followed by the rest of the prayers and the ritual Duas. The entire session was concluded with the proclamation of tasbeeh followed by Sehri (Allah ne diya hai).
We are indeed thankful to Allah SWT by the sadaqa of Qatamain AS, Syedain RZ and Siddiqain RZ for favouring us on this noble and holy occasion as usual. We once again thank Allah SWT for making this holy and noble occasion successful every year. I take this opportunity to once again thank the host for continuously shouldering the responsibilities as patron and hosting all the mehdavia events and activities continuously at his residence round the year against all odds.
Moreover I extend greetings to other organizers in Saudi Arabia. The Committee Baraye Dair-e-Meeranji AS of Jeddah its office bearers, members and well wishers are commendable for regularly inviting a Murshid of the community every year for Umra and hosting him to lead the Dugana prayers. This year they were honoured to invite Peer-O-Murshid Hz Syed Khundmir Sahab Mujtehdi (Sajjada Daira Kalan Bada Daira and Daira Daulatabad, resident of Hauz ki Masjid Musheerabad). Their committee also conducts other mehdavia activities and events round the year at the residence of Janab Syed Ali Hussain Tersees Nusrathi.
Greetings to the Falah-e-Mehdavia Society Riyadh (FEMS), its office bearers, members and well wishers for continuously organizing dugana prayers and hosting other mehdavia activities regularly round the year in a grand manner.
Moreover, I would like to congratulate and greet all the organizers (collective / Individual) / workers (active / passive) and all the community members around the globe who were involved at any stage in organising taraveeh, Dugana prayers.
Janab Syed Shahabuddin ‘Murshid Miyan’ and Janab Syed Nusrath Ali Al-Mehdavi along with other brothers has extended Dugana Greetings to one and all around the world.

 Melbourne, Australia: A Report By  Syed Adil Mujtehadi
This is my first time writing for this forum ,so incase if I miss any detail anywhere please accept my apologies .
 After coming back from the Dugana Prayers I could not stop myself from writing how good and blessed I felt to get this oppurtunity to offer these special prayers By Grace of Allaah SWT and Buzurg-aan-e- Deen.
The Dugana  Farz Prayers were offered last night at 2.30 am(Melbourne Local Time) at 279 Sydney Rd,Coburg in Melbourne by the Grace of Allah  SWT and Buzurg-aan-e- Deen .Originally we planned to start the Farz Dugana Prayers at 1.30 am but seeing the overwhelming response by our Mahdivi brothers & sisters pouring in to offer prayers for this great night ,we had to extend the time to 2.30 am ,so that everyone gets the chance to offer this prayers .
We had more than 30 brothers & sisters in faith turn up for this prayers and Inshallah we hope to have double these numbers turning up next year,The Lailatul-Qadr(Dugana) Prayers was led by Janab Syed Sabiullah Munnawari Sahab.
After the Farz Dugana prayers there was a great arrangement made by  our brothers for sehari.
Mashallah the arrangement by our brothers was so good that most of us felt as if we are praying somewhere in our home country close to our families and not somewhere in a foreign land.
I especially want to thank Janab Syed Sabiullah Munnawari Sahab,Janab Syed Yousuf Mehdi Sahab & Janab  Mohammed A Shafiq Sahab firstly  and importantly for co-ordinating and arranging for all of us to offer this special prayers and secondly for making this also an event for all of us to get to know  other Mahdivis in and around Melbourne.
