HAKQ Profile

  1. 1. (HAKQ)HALQA-E-AHBAB-E-KOKAN, QATAR. PROFILE2010) Second Edition (December Established - 30th Aug 2007 Under The Aegis of Embassy of India, Doha-Qatar. P.O.Box No.567, Doha – Qatar. Telefax: (+974) 44417086 Contact: (+974) - 55865432 / 55252065 / 55834042
  2. 2. MessageThe neighboring region on the western coast of the Arabian Ocean is known as “Kokan”, which is famousfor its beauty, greenery and pleasant plateaus. This region is also the centre place for modern & religiouseducational institutes; an attractive place for Historical Monuments, Masjid’s and the native place of the kingof “The Alphonso Mango” which is famous throughout the world. The Kokan region is stretched from Mumbaito Goa comprising of four districts.In 2006 our honourable leaders, Maulana Saeed Ubharay, Maulana Siraj Ahmed Geetay and MaulanaNasrullah Undre started a movement by forming a team to provide necessary help to the “Jamia Hussainia”(a famous centre for the religious teachings in the Kokan region), with a noble and sincere goal. Graduallypeople started to join them and today the movement has taken a shape of an active organization namely;Halqa-e-Ahbabe-Kokan, Qatar. “Those who are willing to work hard; they do it even for hundreds times. But one who keeps on building the castle’s in the air; he does it so without any base”.Referring back to history; we come to know the facts that; people having two qualities have always succeededi.e. “Knowledge & Unity”. This is certainly a boon which could bring a revolution. We have seen manyevidences of this aptitude in the recent past. The holy book “Quran” has proclaimed the message of Allah’sfirst revelation; which had established its foundation, by commanding to “Read”. This proves that knowledgeis a part of human nature and humans cannot run away from nature. I thank Allah that the pious intention informing HAKQ is to promote knowledge & unity.It is important to mention two main things; the first being, that the work started to co-operate with JamiaHussainia – Raigad District which was Alhamdulillah stretched to all parts of Kokan region and has nowbecome the centre of unity. The other fact in the present materialistic world it is very difficult to join theyouth with any organization. But it is surprising to see that in HAKQ about 75% of its members are youth andperhaps this is the reason of its success which has made it a part of History.May Almighty Allah (subhanahu wa tala) bestow upon us his guidance & give us the ability to continue withthis noble cause to take it further; not only in the other GCC countries, but all over the world to be a leader ofthe same, which will enlighten the whole region of Kokan with the most modern & religious knowledge. “Those who have faith in almighty Allah & strong plans; are never afraid of any storms”.Sincerely gratefulHasan ChougleGuardian HALQA-E-AHBAB KOKAN QATAR 3
  3. 3. Message As a humble servant of Allah (subhanahu wa tala), I always felt that, my rab has blessed me immensely with far more than my abilities and there has been a flame burning deep within me to do something for the benefit of our community, to seek the pleasure of Almighty Allah (subhanahu wa tala). Deep inside the hidden corner of my heart, there has always been a burning desire to do something for my community. I always prayed, Ya Rab, in this short spanned life, give me some moments to serve my people, in order to please You. This will give me an excuse to face my Lord on the day of resurrection to ask Him for forgiveness. Lot of opportunities came on the way during this long stay in Qatar, but to be a part of HAKQ is totally different and outclasses everything. When I see the sincere, humble & noble efforts of this young team of individuals from our own community working under this banner “Halqa-e-Ahbabe-Kokan, Qatar”, it makes me feel extremely proud. Tu hi nadaan, chand kalyoon par qana’at kar gaya Warna ghulshan mein ilajeey tangy-e-dama bhi tha May Allah guard my people from the evil eyes of the wicked. I pray to Allah “to shower his abundant blessings on this community and on all the members attached to it”, Aameen. Maulana Saeed Hasan Ubharay Advisor4 HALQA-E-AHBAB KOKAN QATAR
  4. 4. MessageIt’s a matter of great honour & privilege for me to be associated with HAKQ and benamed as one its servants, seeking the pleasure of Allah (swt).According to the need of the hour the people from the land of Kokan have sacrificedwith wisdom in different ways. Looking at the sacred services given by them I feelproud to be of them.There is no doubt , we found many individuals have joined in many folds due to thesincere efforts, tremendous hard work & dedication of the individuals of HAKQ.The unity of Kokani people is a guarantee of providing necessary help to the needs ofour community. This time to extend the support to each and every nook and corner ofour region, the Halqa is trying to set our goal further, trying to aim higher.To help & assist more and more needy individuals of our Kokan community, this timeHAKQ have made a valiant effort to invite representatives of various Kokani Committeesoperating in GCC countries; to join us during our upcoming Annual Meet and explorethe possibilities to work hand-in-hand for the noble cause.I pray to Allah (subhanahu wa tala) to shower his abundant blessings on this committeeand all its members and wish them all the very best to flourish day and night, Inn-sha-Allah, aameen.

  18. 18. An APPeAl Can you donate one day salary for your community welfare?Are you ready to spend your HALAL income on a monthly basis for the betterment and upliftment of ourcommunity??? By kokanis ............ for kokanis ..........Halqa-e-Ahbab-Kokan Qatar (Kokan Friends Circle) main objectives are:  To promote togetherness in our society and to promote communal integration  To work for the educational upliftment and social welfare of the Kokan region in particular.  To award scholarships to meritorious / economically weak students  To engage in social welfare works and activities.  To establish / support educational institutions.  To organize competitive programmes.Achievement of this would not be possible without your whole hearted & generous support and contribution. We urgeall of you to come forward and donate for our community, our people, our children, so they will have a better future.We very well know there are numerous kids/people in our kokan region who are deprived of proper food, clothes,shelter or education. Isn’t it our duty to provide a small helping hand to these needy people? Aren’t we accountable forthis? Won’t Allah ask us? The answer to all these questions is simple –YES. We do, we have to and we are accountable.So what can we do? Go around and feed them, shelter them, educate them, the answer to this is – NO. Then what? Allyou need to do is support HAKQ in order to support them? How? Again the answer is simple - We request you to donateONLY one (1) day’s income every month for OUR community. Can you do it? Don’t forget this is a form of Sadka-e-Jariaya (which will Inshallah continue to give ajar even after we die). Just imagine till the school is there, or till the kidrecites Quran, till the Alim Preaches our good deeds ajar balance keeps adding!! Profitable business!! Isn’t it?Our volunteers and co-workers will approach you in the month of Ramadan; and focus on getting this collection doneas much as possible. If due to any unseen circumstances, if we are unable to meet you during Ramadan then surely we’lltry to meet you soon after Ramadan.Come join hands with us to make a better future.Once again let us ask you “Are you ready to spend your HALAL income on a monthly basis for the betterment andupliftment of our community???” Remember “Every good deed is charity”- [Al-Bukhari].
