Personality of Shaykh-ul-Islam is a blessing for the Muslim world especially sub-continent: Asad-ud-Din Owaisi
Asad-ud-Din Owaisi, member of Indian Lok Sabha, chairman of All-India Milad Committee and son of Sultan Salahuddin Owaisi who has the singular honour of being elected to the Indian parliament six times from Hyderabad Deccan (India), paid a visit to the central secretariat of Minhaj-ul-Quran International. Upon his arrival at the secretariat, Asad-ud-Din Owaisi was given a warm welcome. He called on Sheikh Zahid Fayyaz, senior Deputy Secretary General of MQI and exchanged views of mutual interest with him. He also visited various Directorates and departments of the central secretariat and was briefed about the activities by Raja Jamil Ajmal, director of Foreign Affairs, and G.M. Malik, deputy Secretary General.
Speaking on the occasion, Asad-ud-Din Owaisi said that MQI’s work for the promotion of peace, harmony and interfaith dialogue is in consonance with the teachings of Allah Almighty and the Holy Prophet (SAW). He said that service at such a mass scale is not possible without extreme amount of dedication and commitment. “The personality of Shaykh-ul-Islam Dr Muhammad Tahir-ul-Qadri is a blessing for the Muslim world in general and the sub-continent in particular. MQI has worked wonders in a short span of time,” he added. He further said that the historic research-based Fatwa (religious edict) given by Shaykh-ul-Islam was the need of the hour. He said that such a magnum opus should be translated in different languages of the world so that the followers of other religions also come to know about the teachings of Islam. “The Fatwa tends to guide the Muslim community and states the positions of leading jurists of Islam,” he added. Asad-ud-Din Owaisi said that the educational institutions established by MQI for women constitute a great service. He said that international Mawlid-un-Nabi Conference (SAW) held annually under the banner of MQI is watched across India and the Indian Muslims hold the services of Shaykh-ul-Islam in high esteem.
