Dr. Qibla Ayaz (Chairman, Council of Islamic Ideology): It is a very important occasion in lives of Muslim Ummah when they are celebrating the Eid Milad-un-Nabi (SAWW) with great religious zeal and fervor tomorrow. This day again reminds us to follow the footsteps of greatest man of this universe to attain success in every sphere of life. The teachings of prophet Hazrat Muhammad Mustafa (PBUH) are beacon of light for entire Muslim world. Similarly, the life of Holy Prophet provides us guidance and a message of honesty, justice and truthfulness to get success in life. Today, we, as a nation, needs to follow the golden principles advocated by our religion and Holy Prophet (PHUH). Muslims as a whole are facing many crises all over the world and only Islamic teachings can steer the Muslims out of prevailing challenges. Islamophobia is an emerging trend in West that needs to be countered in an effective manner. The issue needs to be highlighted at highest forums worldwide especially from Organistaion of Islamic countries. The influential Muslim scholars across the world should highlight this issue on all forums.
Dr Hafiz Ikram (Religious Scholar): Our Prophet Hazrat Muhammad (SAWW) has changed course of history in a short period through his high character and holy life. He practically demonstrated the golden principles in his life and established a society where different communities lived together with peace and harmony. The Prophet Muhammad (SAWW) gave such an exemplary socio-economic system through which we can change our lives. The negative trends of cruelty, excesses, injustice and lawlessness can be eliminated from society through following the teachings of Holy Prophet (PBUH). We can regain our lost status in the comity of nations by following teachings of Holy Prophet and get rid of all problems and difficulties.
