Prophet Muhammad (Pbuh) was not only a spiritual leader but also a commander, best reformer and best at many other things benefitting the humanity. Today some miscreants create trouble regarding Prophet because they are ignorant
To counter the multiple increases in communalism and hatred against Islam and Muslims, theJamat-e-Islami Hind Pune branch organized two programmes on the 4th and 5th of August 2022.
At Gandhi Bhavan, two eminent speakers spoke. Kumar Saptarshi, a medical doctor, social activist, and founder of Yuva Kranti Dal (YUKRANT). Kumar Saptarshi advised that Muslims in India should never feel alienated. This is their land. For centuries they have been living here. So with confidence, they should face the challenges and success will come.
Prophet’s life is an example for everybody. One night Prophet found one mohar (coin) in his pocket. It was from the public funds (Private and public funds must be separated). The whole night he could not sleep. “How did it happen?” he was questioning himself. He did not get peace until he deposited this one mohar back into the treasury the next morning!
At the time of communal riots during Partition, Gandhiji was walking on a deserted road. He wanted to instill confidence among the people. , So invited children in that locality to come to play cricket. A young Muslim man wanted to harm Gandhi Then Gandhi read the verse from Quran which says “If you kill one innocent man you will be killing the whole mankind. After hearing this, the young man retreated. This is the moral power Maha Purush had.
What can we do today? We should stay united. Communal riots don’t happen like that. They are planned. So the public should be aware and don’t play into the hands of the communalists.
The second speaker was Swami Lakshi Shankar Acharya, the Founder of Hindu Muslim Jan Ekta Manch. He explained that in Arabastan, great falsehood and injustice were being perpetuated. So God Almighty sent the Rasool to establish truth and justice.
In Sanatan Dharm, Rishis found the truth of the oneness of God. Vedas and Upanishads talk about the oneness of God (Ekeshwar) which is Islam’s fundamental preaching i.e Tauhid. Bhagavad Gita has listed the qualities of a Maha Purush which all befit Paigambar Sallam.. He quoted several verses from the Quran to support his arguments.
Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) was not only a spiritual leader but also a commander, best reformer, and best at many other things benefitting humanity. Today some miscreants create trouble regarding Prophet because they are ignorant. He had the best character. With examples from Quran and Hadees, the Swamiji confirmed the truth about the Prophet Sallam.
Swami informed that he read one book “History of Islamic Civilization” which was translated into Hindi at the behest of Bal Thakare, the Shiva Sena founder. To understand the Quran we need to study the context of the revelation. Swami has written two books on Islam “Quran: An Art of Living” and “Islam: Aatank or Adarsh” (Terror or Ideal). He concluded that” Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) is the best man ever born. No other best man would be ever born.” Islam is not just for Muslims. It is for all humanity and its welfare.
On 5th August, many eminent speakers from different religions took part in this inter-religious dialogue. Father Malcolm Sequeira, Vicar General, Saint Patrick’s Cathedral, Pune, stated that Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) gave peace to all mankind. He is the best model for mankind. Today efforts are made to take away the peace of common people. Living together, and doing business together is becoming difficult. Let us follow his model and not allow anybody to destroy the peace of the common people.
Dr. Bhagwat Ajaychandra (Guruji), Gurukul Vishwapeeth, Vadgaon Sheri, Dr. Ikram Katewala, Islamic Scholar, Ahmed Nagar, Mrs. Abeda Inamdar, Vice President, M.C.E.S., Maulana Razin Ashraf Nadvi, Shaikul Hadees Maulana Nizamuddin Fakhruddin, Mohatamim Darul Uloom Nizamiya Sufiya and Prof. Azhar Ali Warsi, City President, Jamaat Islami Hind were the other speakers.
