Minhaj-ul-Quran Women League holds ‘Sayyida-e-Kainat Conference’
Sayyida-e-Kainat Conference was held under the aegis of Minhaj-ul-Quran Women League at MQI Secretariat, Lahore on August 24, 2010. Addressing the Sayyida-e-Kainat Conference held under the banner of Minhaj-ul-Quran Women League, central Secretary General MWL Sumaira Rafaqat Advocate has said that Hazrat Fatima-tuz-Zahra (RA) was the embodiment of selflessness and sacrifice. She said that we need to adopt this aspect of her personality today. We have to demonstrate extreme sacrifice and rise above our own interests to help the flood affectees. The calamity stricken poor people of our country are afflicted with multiple miseries caused by the unprecedented flood devastation. She urged to get forward and take the responsibility of the ruined people especially the children deprived of their parents. She said that Minhaj-ul-Quran International has established ‘Aaghosh’ (Orphan Care Home) to look after the orphan children and provide them with decent life to enable them to grow into productive citizens of the society. She asked the Muslim women to make Sayyida-e-Kainat (RA) their role model. “This is how we can contribute to the well being of our society in our different roles as mother, daughter, sister and wife,” she held. We would have to resolve, she added, to take a leaf from her book to reform our lives. A generation so brought up on these lines by such mothers would be instrumental in making Islam politically and economically powerful.
Lubna Zaidi of Imamia Students Organization said on the occasion that it was the character of Sayyida (RA) that she would starve herself but would give people to eat. Time demands of us today that we adopt the same principles and values that characterized her blessed life. We need to dedicate ourselves fully and wholly to the support of the flood victims.
Aliya Sadeed Advocate said in her speech that the reason for comprehensive downfall is that we have taken wrong people as our ideal. If we want to come out of this quagmire and regain our lost respect, we need to adopt the character of Sayyida-e-Kainat (RA). She said that we have to come forward and rise to the occasion like one nation in this hour of trial. Sadaf Iqbal, Aneela Doager, Ayesha Shabbir, Dr Noshaba, Maryam Hafeez, Sajida Sadiq, Batool Gillani and other women belonging to different walks of life participated in the Conference.
