This year’s Al-Hidayah event was titled ‘Al Rihla wal Sohba’ and focussed on the modern applications of the Mathnawi of Mawlana Jalal-ud-Din Rumi RA. 
In a time of immense materialist distractions and consistent societal waywardness, the youth require a toolkit which allows them to work on their spiritual development, whilst maintaining morals, values and beliefs bestowed by Islam. 
The Mathnawi is one such guide, and Shaykh-ul-Islam Dr Muhammad Tahir-ul-Qadri decided to explicate and expound on the deeper secrets of the Mawlana’s work, opening up hidden gems that can be applied to our modern day and age, and which will ultimately allow us to become closer to our Creator Allah(SWT). 
Set in the heart of Manchester, Al Hidayah 2019 took place the Exchange Auditorium, which is part of the world-renowned Manchester Central Convention Complex. The stature and iconic status of the venue was be-fitting an event of such standing, and the presence Shaykh-ul-Islamalong with Dr Hassan Mohiuddin Qadri(Chairman MQI Supreme Council), Dr Ghazala Hassan Qadri (Member Board of Governors, Minhaj University Lahore), Shaykh Hammad Mustafa al-Qadri and Shaykh Ahmed Mustafa al-Qadri.
