Ramazan an opportunity for transformation: Dr Hassan Mohi-ud-Din Qadri
Dr Hassan Mohi-ud-Din Qadri, Chairman of the MQI Supreme Council has said that other than the attributes and qualities that distinguish a man from others, the works of public welfare for the humanity are also very important. He said that Allah Almighty says in the Holy Quran that saving the life of an individual is akin to saving the life of an entire humanity. In the same way, taking the life of one person is like killing the whole humanity. He said that Ramzan is the month of forgiveness, penance, sharing of sorrow and generosity and the purpose of fasting is to acquire piety. He said that in addition to abundance of worship, one should spend generously in the way of Allah Almighty.
Dr Hassan Mohi-ud-Din Qadri made these remarks while talking to a group of distinguished businessmen who contribute handsomely in the way of Allah. Memorial shields, awards and certificates were distributed among the participants on the occasion. He said that the holy month of Ramazan imparts the lesson of patience and brotherhood and the needs of the poor and needy are met profusely in this month. He said that we should do as many things for the well-being of the people around us as we can during this month. He said that the spirit of the month lies in fulfilling the requirements of being a creation of Almighty and those of our fellow human beings. He said that the holy month provides us with an opportunity to transform our lives and make a fresh beginning.
