Dawat-e-Islami is an international, non-political, propagational movement of Quraan and Sunnah. Dawat-e-Islami was founded in 1980 in Karachi, Pakistan, by Maulana Muhammad Ilyas Attar Qadri. The movement is active in more than 72 countries.
Dawat-e-Islami maintains its international headquarters in Karachi, and has several national and regional headquarters in 72 countries of the world. Its headquarters, either national or regional, are called Faizaan-e-Medinah (Blessing of Medinah). The lower and lower-middle classes form the bulk of its cadres. Dawat-e-Islami is working in more than 41 fields. The two most significant activities of Dawat-e-Islami are madani qafila (missionary travel) and Madani Inamaat (self assessment questionnaires)
Jaamiat-ul-Madinah (literal meaning: institutions of Madinah) refers to institutions run by Dawat-e-islami in which an 8 year Dars-e-Nizami (Aalim) course and Mufti course is provided free of cost, along with food and living facilities, if needed. Hundreds of Jaamiat-ul-Madinah have been established in various cities. More than 10,000 students are studying in these institutions. In Pakistan there are 110 jaamiat-ul-Madinah through out the country.

Madni Qafila in progress
Madani qafila (literal meaning: caravan of Madinah) refers to traveling to another area for learning and propagating Qura'an and Sunnahs. Dawat-e-Islami has reached more than 72 countries with the help of madani qafilas, who undertake mission trips ranging from three days to 12 months a period time. Each Qafila (caravan) is led by an Emir. A specific syllabus has been prepared for teaching the person traveling in madani qafilas, with a typical three-day madani qafila covering such subjects as:
Madani Halqa - In which verses of "Holy Qur'an" are read along with translation "kanzul-iman" and Tafsir (interpretation) "Noor-ul-Irfan" or "Khazain-ul-irfaan".
Correct ways of salah (prayer), wudhu (ablution), ghusl (full ritual washing), and tayammum (waterless ritual washing), and many other obligatories and other necessary basic Islamic knowledge.
Tarbiyati Halqas- In which Sunnahs (prophetic traditions) and Masnoon Duas (supplications) of Prophet Muhammad (salalahoalihawasalam) are learnt.
Neki ki Dawat - How to conduct dawah (missionary) work.
How to give dars or bayaan (Islamic lectures).
How to wake people up for Fajr prayers - called Sada-e-Medinah(literally: voice from Madinah).
Dars & Bayaan (lessons and lectures) about Qur'an and Sunnah are taught from various Sunni books, especially Faizaan-e-Sunnat.
Weekly and annual congregations
Dawat-e-Islami arranges "Haftawar Shab-e-Juma Ijtima" (weekly gatherings) in thousands of cities of the world. These ijtimaat (congregations) mostly starts on Thursday night after maghrib prayers till Friday morning. Only in India more than 500 weekly congregations take place in different district head cities each week.
The ijtima is held on 322 acres of deserted land near Multan, which is turning out to be small to hold such a huge ijtima, so Dawat-e-islami is preparing to buy more land.
The Dawat-e-Islami held the first-ever congregation for deaf, dumb and blind students at its central headquarters Faizan-e-Madinah. Hundreds of students between 16 and 18 years of age attended the programme. They were given a revision session on how to pray, and character building
Dawat-e-Islami collects Zakat and Sadaqah in the holy month of Ramadan for its Dawah and organizational activities. It is also largely financed by donation of sacrificed animal skin during Eid al-Adha, which is then sold to the leather manufacturing industry. This turns out to be a reliable source of funding as India and Pakistan have a well-established leather industry.
Members are expected to wear a green turban, white and a brown shoulder cloth and a white dress (Kameez Shalwar). The long shirt should have a chest pocket, an additional very thin pocket to hold the Miswaak (wooden toothbrush).
