A new book of Shaykh-ul-Islam Dr Muhammad Tahir-ul-Qadri was held under the banner of MQI Karachi. Religious scholars belonging to the various walks of life attended the ceremony and expressed their happiness at the new intellectual contribution by Shaykh-ul-Islam.

They said that Shaykh-ul-Islam has lighted the lamps of knowledge and enlightenment by offering intellectual guidance for every contentious issue.
The launching ceremony took place in Arts Council Karachi.

In his keynote address, Shaykh-ul-Islam Dr Muhammad Tahir-ul-Qadri congratulated the religious scholars belonging to different walks of life on getting together on a single point which is a common matter of respect and faith for all. He said that the martyrdom of Imam Hussain (RA) was not just the killing of one person but an act that was aimed to hurt the Holy Prophet (PBUH). Allah Almighty says in the Holy Quran that whosoever hurt His Prophet (PBUH), there is great torment in store for such a person. He said that love for the family of the Holy Prophet (PBUH) is not a matter of devotion but one of stability and safety of ‘Iman’ and treading the right path.
