Khanqah of Sarwari Qadri order

Allah says in Quran:

فِیۡ  بُیُوۡتٍ اَذِنَ اللّٰہُ  اَنۡ تُرۡفَعَ وَ یُذۡکَرَ فِیۡہَا اسۡمُہٗ ۙ یُسَبِّحُ لَہٗ  فِیۡہَا بِالۡغُدُوِّ وَ الۡاٰصَالِ ﴿ۙ۳۶﴾ رِجَالٌ ۙ لَّا تُلۡہِیۡہِمۡ تِجَارَۃٌ  وَّ لَا بَیۡعٌ عَنۡ ذِکۡرِ اللّٰہِ وَ  اِقَامِ الصَّلٰوۃِ  وَ  اِیۡتَآءِ الزَّکٰوۃِ ۪ۙ یَخَافُوۡنَ یَوۡمًا تَتَقَلَّبُ فِیۡہِ الۡقُلُوۡبُ وَ الۡاَبۡصَارُ ﴿٭ۙ﴾

“Such houses as Allah has ordained to exalt and remember His Name (Ism-e-Allah Zaat) therein. (These are the houses) in which (Allah’s men) invoke Him morning and evening.” (An-Nur:36)
