The inaugural ceremony of the 8-volume Quranic Encyclopedia compiled by Shaykh-ul-Islam Dr Muhammad Tahir-ul-Qadri, which is a treasure of knowledge containing 5000 topics, was held under the banner of the Minhaj-ul-Quran International Rawalpindi on March 17, 2019. President MQI Dr Hussain Mohi-ud-Din Qadri presided over the ceremony and delivered his keynote address.
PAT and Minhaj-ul-Quran Women League took out a peaceful march outside the Lahore Press Club in response to the objectionable placards and banners displayed on the occasion of the so-called Aurat March on the International Women’s Day. The March was led by MWL leaders namely Farah Naz, Sidra Kramat, Ayesha Mubashar, Zainab Arshad, Anita Ilyas, Sana Waheed, Amna Batool, and Noreen Alvi.
Chairman Supreme Council Dr Hassan Mohi-ud-Din Qadri has said that Islam urges its followers to share the joys and grief of their fellow human beings. He said that the Minhaj Welfare Foundation (MWF) has kept the concept of the respect of humanity alive, which is the fundamental principle of the Islamic brotherhood and the MWF chapters across the country arrange collective marriage ceremonies in which the girls belonging to the poor households are married.
Addressing the ceremony, Dr Hussain Mohi-ud-Din Qadri said that the Quranic Encyclopedia is a great scholarly feat of Dr Tahir-ul-Qadri on which the Islamic world is proud. He said that such works when carried out in the past were accomplished by teams of 10-15 experts who belonged to different fields. He said that Dr Tahir-ul-Qadri has single-handedly pulled off this feat by researching thousands of subjects.
