The Mehfil commenced with a beautiful recitation of The Holy Quran by Sister Saima Rafiq the English translation was read by Sister Nadia Ahmad.
This was followed by listening to excerpts of Shaykh-ul-Islam Dr Tahir-ul-Qadri’s speech explaining the importance of our responsibility to Islam. Shaykh-ul-Islam explained in great detail that every era Momin have a responsibility to Deen. In previous eras it fell upon pious people to spread Islam, for others the responsibility was to collect Hadith.
We must realise that we must make use of every modern method available, so although using a computer is not Sunnah, as it is beneficial to Islam it must be utilized. Shaykh-ul-Islam encourages us to embrace development as a key tool in furthering and protecting Deen. Embrace modernity keeping to the tenants of Islam.
