Eid Milad-un-Nabi was celebrated with religious fervor at the University of Sindh (SU) Jamshoro under the auspices of the Institute of Languages and Bureau of Students Tutorial Guidance Counseling Services & Co-Curricular Activities (STAGS) on Thursday.
The event held in SU’s Shaikh Ayaz Auditorium, Arts Faculty Building was presided over by the Vice-Chancellor University of Sindh Professor (Meritorious) Dr Muhammad Siddique Kalhoro; however, prominent religious leader and head of the Central Advisory Board of the global movement for the preaching of Quran & Sunnah, Dawat-e-Islami Alhaj Molana Muhammad Imran Attari spoke about the life of Prophet Hazrat Muhammad (peace be upon him) and shed light on various aspects. He enlightened the ceremony with the light of remembrance and thought of the Holy Prophet (peace be upon him).
He urged the youth to recite the Holy Quran and try to understand it along with establishing 5-time prayers so that they might emerge victorious in the world and the hereafter.
He lamented that the majority of Muslims across the world was rapidly decreasing. To halt such ebb, the youth will have to come forward to establish prayers in real sense.
On the occasion, SU Vice-Chancellor Professor (Meritorious) Dr Muhammad Siddique Kalhoro, while referring to Surah Ikhlas, said that the mentioned Surah of Holy Qur’an was a clear proof of the oneness of Allah Almighty and that there was no match of Him and He is matchless and ubiquitous.
“No one can be associated with Allah. He is the Lord of the worlds while Hazrat Muhammad (peace be upon him) is the mercy for the worlds”, Dr Kalhoro said and added that there were 46,000 male and female students studying simultaneously at the University of Sindh.
“Those who do not know how to recite the Holy Quran, should get guidance/ learn from the students who have read it in their leisure time after classes”, he said.
The Vice-Chancellor said that for religious brotherhood in Pakistan, people of all sects should respect each other and no one should speak against others.
Dr Kalhoro disagreed with Alhaji Muhammad Imran Attari on the point that the number of the Muslims were all over the world and said that it was a wrong perception that the number of Muslims across globe was decreasing day by day. He said Muslims’ population was increasing in different countries day by day.
He said that taking into account the increasing number of Muslims in different countries, the option from the religious column in census form had been deleted by the rulers in order to pose that the Islamic followers were diminishing across the world.
“There is no reality is it, I believe”, the Vice-Chancellor said and added that it was obligation on every Muslim to adopt the teachings of Holy Quran and Sunnah of the Holy Prophet (peace be upon him) and lead their lives accordingly in order to get success.
On the occasion, Alhaj Muhammad Imran collectively prayed to God almighty for the development of the University of Sindh, better future of the students, prosperity of the country and enabling Muslims to follow the Quran & Sunnah of the Holy Prophet (PBUH).
