Srinagar: Anjuman Auqaf Jama Masjid Srinagar head Mirwaiz Dr Moulvi Muhammad Umar Farooq has paid glorious tribute to the most revered saint of the Valley, Sheikh-ul-Alam Sheikh Noor-ud-Din Noorani (RA) who is also fondly referred to as Nund Reshi by the people of Kashmir, on his Urs and described him as an epitome of knowledge of Shariah and wisdom.
On the 604th Urs of Sheikh Nooruddin Noorani (RA), Mirwaiz said, “Sheikh-ul-Alam (RA) was a high level religious and spiritual leader and a great reformer and educator who made a successful and sincere effort to present the eternal and immortal teachings of the holy Qur’an in our own mother tongue Kashmiri. That is why, despite the passage of centuries, the meaning, importance, significance, eloquence and relevance of his words have not diminished. Even today, the Kashmiri people, especially the scholars and preachers, read his Kalaam in their lectures and sermons with full enthusiasm and devotion.”
Mirwaiz-e-Kashmir said that the purpose of observing the Urs of Hazrat Sheikh Noor-ud-Din Wali (RA) can be achieved only when the Kashmiri people, amid the prevailing situation, practically follow the way of Shariah and social welfare as espoused by the great saint.
