On Wednesday 4th May 2016, Minhaj-ul-Quran International Nelson held the annual Mi’raaj-ul-Nabi Conference at Jamia Masjid Minhaj-ul-Quran, Nelson. The event was hosted by Qari Zahid-ul-Rehman Qadri Sahib & Allama Nauman Al-Azhari Sahib and was attended by a number honourable guests and local Naat Khawans. The main guest of honour was Alama Muhammed Naeem Tariq Hajwairi Sahib who delivered the key note speech.
Alama Saab’s speech focused on the Shaan and Azmath of our dear Prophet Muhammed (PBUH) and the events of that blessed night of Isra-wal-Mehraj. He said Allah sent the Prophet with three virtues – as a Shahid, Mubashir and Nazeer. All the other Prophets were given two Shaans – Basharath and Nooraniath but Prophet Muhammed (PBUH) was also given a third – Haqeekathay Muhammadi and it is this Shaan that Allah bestowed on the Prophet on the night of Mi’raaj. On that night Allah gave the Prophet (PBUH) extraordinary honour and status that no other Prophet has been given.
Alama Saab said that love of the Prophet (PBUH) is the very first pillar of Islam that a Muslim accepts when he reads the Kalima. Only a Muslim who accepts the Azmath and Shaan of the Prophet (PBUH) is a true Mo’min and only then does his Imaan become complete. This is something the Suhaba (RA) recognised and understood from the very beginning. Those who accept the Azmat and Shaan of the Prophet (PBUH), for them it is the Mi’raaj of their Imaan.
Allama Tariq Hajwairi led the Maghrib prayers and Qari Zahid-ul-Rehman thanked everyone for attending. Langar was served at the end.
