Addressing the Women Empowerment Conference in Al-Murad Hall in Birmingham, PAT Chairman Dr Muhammad Tahir-ul-Qadri has said that there is no difference between the terrorists and those who oppose women’s education and progress. He said that barring women from education is crime against humanity, which is neither acceptable to Islam nor to any law or Constitution. He said that waging a struggle against orthodox and extremist anti-women thought has become inevitable.
On the 13th Ramadhan, Saturday 18th June 2016, Minhaj Ul Quran Women League, (Valby), organized a conference in the memory of Syeda Fatima Zahra (RA). The gathering was attended by a large number of ladies and children from the surrounding areas. The programme began in the usual manner with the recitation of the Holy Quran, which was done by a young student of Minhaj-ul-Quran, Zoyah Ali and Mubashir Zaheer Ahmed. Hamd Sharif was recited by Shabana Ahmed whilst Romana Kiani and Aishah Iram Ahmed all recited praises on the Holy Prophet Muhammad (SAW).
PAT Chairman Dr Muhammad Tahir-ul-Qadri has said that the patriotic expatriate Pakistanis, who send $20 billion in remittances every year, should hold the rulers accountable, asking them as to why the hard-earned money they send home becomes part of the off-shore companies? He said that Pakistan needs honest and truth speaking leadership. He said that the government’s journey that started off with the tall claims to end load-shedding and break begging bowl has come down to the fake accountability of the Panama leaks.
On the eve of Eid-ul-Fitr, Islam enjoins us to attend to the underprivileged and take care of the disadvantaged and share happiness and joy with the destitute sections of society. This Eid is also called Eid-ul-Fitr because the donation distributed among the destitute, the poor and the downtrodden sections of society before the offering of Eid prayers is called ‘Fitr’.
Ramadan is an especially opportune time to reflect on the blessings of Allah Almighty and feel for the poor. When we eat less, our stomachs shrink, and we feel full after a few bites at the end of the day. Fasting allows us to experience once a year what many throughout the world experience almost daily. Hunger, for them, is not a choice; it is simply a fact of life. In Islam, feeding people carries great virtues as can be seen from Qur’an and Hadith.
