- Our problems due to our deviation from teachings of Holy Prophet (PBUH): Speakers
- Authorities asked to allow prayers at Jama Masjid, release Mirwaiz-e-Kashmir
Srinagar: A Seerat conference was organised on Saturday in the main hall of Islamia Higher Secondary School Rajouri Kadal under the auspices of Anjuman Auqaf Jama Masjid Srinagar, in connection with Rabi-ul-Awwal – the blessed month which marks the birth of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (PBUH).
In a statemsnt issued here, the Anjuman said that leading religious scholar of Jammu and Kashmir, Moulana Rehmatullah Mir Al-Qasmi presided over the conference while the Vice President of Anjuman-e-Shari’a Shian’s Agha Syed Mujtaba Al-Mosvi Al-Safvi, the head of Anjuman-e-Himaayat-ul-Islam Moulana Khurshid Ahmad Qanungo, the President of Anjuman Ulema-e-Ahanaaf Moulana Akhzar Hussain and the renowned Naat Khwaan & poet Shabir Ahmad Mir, Moulana M S Rehman Shams and General Secretary of Anjuman Auqaf Haji Altaf Ahmed Bhat elaborated on the importance and significance of the biography of the Holy Prophet (PBUH) and the far-reaching and historic impact of his arrival to this world.
The speakers said the main reason for the unending problems and crises faced by the Muslims of the world in general and those in Jammu and Kashmir in particular is the deviation from the biography and teachings of the Holy Prophet (PBUH).
The solution to all our problems depends solely on sincerely following the great teachings of the Prophet (PBUH) and that is how we can lead the world in moral leadership, they emphasised. On the occasion, the speakers expressed their deep concern over the closure of the historic Central Jama Masjid Srinagar for Friday prayers and worship for a long time.
While the world is back on track in view of the significant decline in the number of coronavirus cases and the important centres and holy places of Muslims across the world including the Harmain Sharifain – the two most revered places of worship in Islam – have also been opened; the closure of the Central Jama Masjid, the largest place of worship in Jammu and Kashmir, by authorities is extremely disturbing and tantamount to hurting the religious sentiments of the Muslims of the region, they said.
The speakers expressed hope that in view of these circumstances, not only the Central Jama Masjid Srinagar would be opened for Friday and daily prayers but also the continuous detention of Anjuman Auqaf chief Mirwaiz-e-Kashmir Dr Moulvi Muhammad Umar Farooq would be lifted so that he can carry out his official, milli, social and other peaceful activities as is the centuries-old tradition of the Mirwaizeen-e-Kashmir.
A special issue of Anjuman Nusrat-ul-Islam’s magazine ‘Paighambar-e-Hidaayat No. 2021’ was also launched on the occasion.
