Chicago: Renowned Islamic scholar and author of several books, Maulana Wahiduddin Khan, was conferred the Lifetime Achievement Award by the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) at their 52nd Annual Convention in Chicago on September 6, 2015. Presenting the award, the President of ISNA Mr. Azhar Azeez appreciated the Maulana’s lifelong contribution towards working for peace and building bridges and mutual understanding between people of different faiths. At the event, Dr. Sayyid Syeed, ISNA’s National Director for Interfaith and Community Alliance, released the Maulana’s latest book, The Age of Peace. He urged the audience to read the book and remarked that there was a dire need to discuss and understand the ideology of peace which the Maulana had presented. In his acceptance speech, the Maulana said that peace and spirituality were two sides of a single coin. He explained that spirituality is the inner content of peace, and peace is the external manifestation of spirituality. The 90 years old Maulana was on a two-week visit to the US on an invitation by ISNA. He addressed a number of gatherings including those at the United States Institute of Peace (USIP) and the All Dulles Area Muslim Society (ADAMS).
