Allama Hafiz Saeed-ul-Hassan Tahir delivered his lecture on subject of the practices of the Holy Prophet (SAW) during the holy month of Ramadan. He said that Ramadan was an occasion to amass as many rewards and spiritual blessings as one could. He said that one must dedicate oneself to worship of Almighty Lord for His countless blessings on the humanity, and recite the Holy Quran for larger understanding of Islamic dictates. He said that fasting was not about being thirsty and hungry. Rather it was a rare window of opportunity to destroy our ego, and sins. He said that strong relationship with the Holy Quran was a guarantee for establishing strong relationship with the Holy Prophet (SAW).
He said that the Holy Prophet (SAW) would make special arrangements for worship during the holy month of Ramadan. He would also sit for Itikaf for ten days. Allama Saeed said that it was in compliance with the same practice of the Holy Prophet (SAW), that MQI had been arranging 10-day Itikaf each year in which hundreds of people including women would take part. He said that the chief highlight of the annual mega event were the special lectures of Shaykh-ul-Islam Dr Muhammad Tahir-ul-Qadri.
The programme ended on dua of Allama Saeed-ul-Hassan Tahir.
