On Saturday 10th December 2016, Minhaj-ul-Quran International Nelson held the Annual Mawlid-un-Nabi Conference at Jamia Masjid Minhaj-ul-Quran. The event was held after Isha prayer and was attended by internationally acclaimed Naat Khawan Zulfiqar Ali Hussaini and other invited guests. The main guest speaker was Alama Azim Mumtaaz Al-Azhari. The mehfil was also broadcast live on radio Awaaz FM.
Qari Zahid-ur-Rehman hosted the event which began with recitation of the Holy Quran followed by numerous Naats in praise of the Holy Prophet (PBUH). Guest Naat Khawan Prince Naseeb read several famous Naats to the delight of listeners who blissfully joined in to create a wonderful joyous atmosphere. The event was further energised with the arrival of Zulfiqar Ali Hussaini who read several of his most famous Naats to captivate the audience.
Alama Azim Mumtaz delivered the night’s keynote speech. He said Allah wants the whole universe to love the Prophet (PBUH) and that’s why in the Holy Quran, Allah instructs mankind to remember the favours he has bestowed upon you, so why wouldn’t he want us to love and remember the greatest favour to mankind – the Prophet himself (PBUH). For centuries before the arrival of the Prophet (PBUH), Allah tolerated mankind’s malice and ignorance but only because he wanted to show the world the mercy and teachings with which the Prophet (PBUH) rehabilitated society with his arrival. Alama Saab said Allah wants you to remember the Prophet (PBUH) all the time in your lives which is why He mandates in the Quran for all believers to send Darood & Salaam on the Prophet (PBUH) just as He and his Angels do.
The event concluded with a rare opportunity to perform ziarat of the blessed Muay Mubarak of the Prophet (PBUH). A banquet was served to all attendees.
