The proceedings of the programme began with the recitation of the Holy Qur’an followed by salutations upon the Prophet (SAW) and manqabat by students from Minhaj School of Islamic Sciences.
The Great Grandson of Huzoor Sayyedina Ghaus-ul-Azam Shaykh Abdul Qadir Gilani (May Allah be pleased with him) and the beloved son of Huzoor Tahir Allauddin al-Qadri al-Baghdadi (May Allah be pleased with him) (the beloved Shaykh of Shaykh-ul-Islam Prof Dr Muhammad Tahir-ul-Qadri), Huzoor Pir Sayyid Abdul Qadir Jamaluddin was the Chief Guest.
Addressing the audience, Al-Shaykh Pir Sayyid Abdul Qadir Jamaluddin said that Sayyedina Ghaus-ul-Azam is not only known as the greatest of helpers, but was also a great preacher, a great educationalist, a great moralist and a great master of Islamic Law. He was the glory of the learned and light of Islam, the spokesman of theologians, the interpreter of men of spiritual knowledge, the unique leader of leaders and the reviver of religion.
Speaking on the occasion, Skaykh Allama Sadiq Qureshi Al-Azhari highlighted the miracles of Shaykh Abdul Qadir al-Gilani al-Baghdadi (RA) through an educational and spiritual point of view. He said that on each wali there is a qadam and Ghaus-ul-Azam has the blessed qadam of The Prophet (S.A.W). He said “The Walis of Allah are acting on behalf of his Holy Prophet (S.A.W) and are not proclaiming their existence and position until commanded by Allah to serve the whole world”.
