Sahibzada Hassan Mohi-ud-Din addresses conference at Dawa Academy

Three-day celebrations were held in the International Islamic University on the occasion of its silver jubilee in Islamabad. On February 21, 2010, ‘Rahmatul Lil Alameen Conference” was organized as the part of the celebrations in which Sahibzada Hassan Mohi-ud-Din Qadri, president of MQI’s Supreme Council, addressed on special invitation. The other distinguished speakers who spoke on the occasion included Maulana Muhammad Tariq Jamil, central head of the Tablighi Jamat, renowned religious scholar Kokab Norani, Allama Zahid-ur-Rashidi, head of the Pakistan Seera Council, Dr Raheeq Ahmad Abbasi, Secretary General of MQI, Dr Akram Chaudhry, vice chancellor of Sargodha University, and Allama Sajid Mir. The conference was attended by the religious scholars, professors, and students in a large number in addition to hundreds of people from across the country.

The formal proceedings of the Conference got underway with the recitation from the Holy Quran at 11 a.m. followed by recital of Naat. In his special address on the occasion, Hassan Mohi-ud-Din Qadri made the status of the Holy Prophet (blessings and peace be upon him) the subject of his speech. He said that although ‘‘Rahmatul Lil Alameen Conference” is the Attribute of Allah Almighty yet this word has been created to denote association with the Holy Prophet (blessings and peace be upon him) among the human beings.

He said that the person of the Holy Prophet (blessings and peace be upon him) is the source and paragon of mercy not only in this world but also in the hereafter. He (blessings and peace be upon him) was raised as a Prophet of Mercy for all the worlds and creatures. He gave humanity the consciousness about such notions as peace, civilization, harmony and human rights. Islam was founded on the Prophet’s (blessings and peace be upon him) message of peace, which he spread during his time and which continues to remain relevant despite passage of hundreds of centuries. He said that as the world drifts into more physical and intellectual chaos, it is the Holy Prophet’s message of peace, which can serve as sheet-anchor against the evil forces and bring about the tranquility and harmony in the troubled world. He said that the foremost responsibility lay on the shoulders of the Muslims to spread this message of love and peace in the world. ‘This is possible if they revive their relationship with the Holy Prophet (blessings and peace be upon him)”, he held.

Prof Dr Sahibzada Sajid-ur-Rehman, Director of the Dawa Academy, thanked the guests in his concluding speech and the conference came to an end with the Dua.
