In his address on the occasion, Dr Hassan Mohi-ud-Din Qadri said that the Holy Quran has been sent to humanity for its guidance, particularly it is a Divine Book of Wisdom for the believers who can read and understand it to unpack the secrets of the universe. He said that eloquence is part and parcel of the Holy Quran that whosoever reads it finds comfort and peace in their heart. He said that our success not only in this world but also in the hereafter lies in reciting the Holy Quran with full attention, understanding its message and then reshaping our lives accordingly.
Dr Hassan Mohi-ud-Din Qadri emphasized the need of persuading the youth towards the teachings of the Holy Quran. He said that Shaykh-ul-Islam Dr Muhammad Tahir-ul-Qadri rendered the translation of the Holy Quran in such a way that it has the attribute of interpretation. He said that he was happy to join the ceremony held to mark the launching of the translation of the Holy Quran in Danish language. He said that the translation was MQI’s gift to the Danish Muslims who will find it easy now to recite the Holy Quran and strengthen their bond with the Holy Prophet (PBUH).
Chairman Supreme Council said that the translation of the Holy Quran done by Shaykh-ul-Islam has many attributes as it has been done keeping the requirements of the modern age. He said the Danish translation will help the local community understand the real teachings of the Holy Quran. He said that the quality of the translation is that it fulfills the needs of the readers for exegesis of the text.
Dr Hassan Mohi-ud-Din Qadri said that Irfan-ul-Quran and the upcoming 30-volume exegesis of the Holy Quran by Shaykh-ul-Islam enables the believers to shape their lives in accordance with the real teachings of the faith so that they play a role befitting a true Muslim in the contemporary era. He asked the people to love the Quran, and read it with heart and soul and it will love them back and guide them at every stage of their life. He said there is no greater code of conduct than what has been described in the Holy Quran.
