The keynote speech about the revelation of the Holy Quran was delivered by Allama Abdul Sattar Siraaj. He stated that the virtues of the Holy Quran cannot be measured. The Holy Quran will continue to guide the humanity as a beacon of light till the Day of Judgement. The Holy Quran came as a cure for the sick hearts, and to enlighten ignorant mankind. He said that teaching the Holy Quran is a source of attaining blessings and also a means of intercession. If anybody wishes to study the exegesis of the Holy Quran, he should study the ‘Seerah’ (life) of the Holy Prophet (SAW).
Allama Abdul Sattar Siraaj further stated that if people sought success in this world as well as the world hereafter, they should act upon the teachings of the Holy Quran and Sunna of the Holy Prophet (SAW). He said that reading the Holy Quran with translation is a source of great rewards in the blessed month of Ramadhan. This is why we should make it a routine to recite it every day. Concluding his speech, Allama shaib congratulated Minhaj Women League, Bispevej, for organising such a beautiful programme.
