The teachings of the Holy Prophet (pbuh) offer guidance to entire humanity: Dr Hussain Mohi-ud-Din Qadri
Speaking on the second day of inter-collegiate competitions being held under the banner of Bazm-e-Minhaj, COSIS, President MQI Dr Hussain Mohi-ud-Din Qadri has said that the teachings of the Holy Prophet (pbuh) offer solution to all the problems humanity is facing today. He said that the state of Madina was such an administrative, political, and social model that it would continue to serve as a template of a welfare state till the Day of Judgment. He said that with the establishment of the state of Madina, the political instability came to an end.
Dr Hussain Mohi-ud-Din Qadri said that the Holy Prophet (pbuh) founded the first modern welfare state in human history in the form of the Madina Pact. He (pbuh) eliminated the differences held by various segments of society and presented the political concept of One Nation.
President MQI said that the political stability fed into the economic stability. He said that the unique concept of brotherhood laid the foundation for economic equality. He said that the Prophet's Mosque emerged as a seat of learning and instruction in the entire Islamic world after the formation of the state of Madina. He said that we need to understand the essential attributes of the modern welfare state system from the model of the state of Madina.
