'Jamat Khana' means 'A house designated as a place of worship in which a congregation gathers for prayers'.

'Jamat Khana' for us also means 'House of ALI and NABI' for it is our faith that the NOOR (LIGHT) of Hazar Imam is present there is all It's Glory.

Holy Qur'an says: -

"(This Lamp is found) in house which Allah hath allowed to be exalted and that His name shall be remembered therein. Therein do offer praise to Him at morning and evening".
Sura Nur (XXIV) - Ayat 36.

(From 'Glorious Qur'an' translated by Marmaduke Pickthall)
