Sweden: A Muslim is source of peace for others: Dr Tahir-ul-Qadri

As part of his European tour, Shaykh-ul-Islam Dr Muhammad Tahir-ul-Qadri addressed a conference on the subject of moral and spiritual development in Stockholm on August 5. Chairman MQI Supreme Council Dr Hassan Mohi-ud-Din Qadri, Shaykh Hammad Mustafa Al-Madni, and Shaykh Ahmad Mustafa Al-Arabi were also present on the occasion. Syed Mahmood Shah from Denmark attended the conference along with a delegation. A large number of workers of MQI including the members of the Diaspora community participated in the moot.

Speaking on the occasion, Dr Tahir-ul-Qadri said that the Muslim is the one from whose hands and tongue others are safe. He said that being a Muslim is not just a title but a character. He said that the criterion to judge people is not their outlook but their character and piety. He said that the Muslims are the creator and promoter of peace and tranquility around them. He said that according to Islam, the best among humans is he whose character is the best and whose morality is supreme.

Dr Tahir-ul-Qadri said that there are many ways to promote good. One of them is that we facilitate other people to the best of our ability by lessening their difficulties. He said that we will be asked about the people around us, our neighbors and relatives. So if we spend on their well-being, we will be successful on the Day of Reckoning. He said that even smiling to the people and being nice to them is also an act of goodness.

Dr Qadri said that we are slumbering as a society. We need spiritual awakening and it is possible if we enrich our personality with excellence of morality. He said that we have to promote love and end hatred and make the society a hub of peace.
