The News : ‘Showing true face of Islam to world greatest jihad’
Friday, May 14, 2010
FOUNDER President of Minhaj-ul-Quran International (MQI) Dr Tahirul Qadri has said that showing the true face of Islam to the world is the greatest Jihad in an age when Islam is being discredited and its teachings brought into disrepute.
The scourge of lawlessness, economic bankruptcy and political instability is the result of our negligence of the teachings of Allah and His Prophet (PBUH) and we ignored the Dawah, he said while speaking via phone from London at the monthly spiritual gathering of Gosh-a-Durood at MQI secretariat on Thursday.
He said if Pakistani nation wanted to see their country progress, it would have to use its power of ballot correctly. This is the tool by which the nation can have pious and capable leadership. He said it was the divine principle that Allah Almighty does not subject the entire nation to torment if some of its people suffer from evil. However, if the evil becomes rampant and no one comes forward to stem its onward rush, different kinds of sufferings come to the society. One form of the torment is the superimposition of dishonest, incompetent and characterless leadership on the people. To top it all, collective awareness of such a nation is snatched away.
Dr Qadri said the nation continues to complain about their ill fate but did not review its conduct.
In this age, people make fun of those who act upon the religion. He said that if we reviewed ourselves with a corrective mindset, things would get better. He urged the youth to play their role in that regard for future of the country and Muslim Umma.
