Muslims greeted on Prophet’s birth anniversary

Srinagar, October 18 (KMS): In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, the Anjuman Auqaf of Jamia Masjid, Srinagar, on behalf of its incarcerated head Mirwaiz Umar Farooq has greeted the Muslim World, in general, and the Muslims of Jammu and Kashmir, in particular, on the birth anniversary of Hazrat Muhammad (SAW).

The Anjuman in a statement in Srinagar said that the birth of the Prophet of Islam (SAW) was the turning point in the history of the world as it revolutionised human thinking, changed history, transformed people’s lives and altered the geography of the world by laying the foundation of a new and unique civilisation. With the arrival of Prophet Muhammad (SAW), for the first time in history, the world saw for itself how humanity was accorded respect, honour and dignity; the example of which cannot be found anywhere, the Anjuman said.

Paying glorious tributes to the ‘Mohsin-e-Insaaniyat’ (SAW), the Anjuman said the Muslims, instead of just expressing love and regard orally, must sincerely implement the teachings of the Holy Prophet (SAW) in their lives so as to thwart the abominable and vile conspiracies being hatched against Islam and Muslims today.

Observing that the message of the great and revered Prophet (SAW) and his exemplary life is the guiding light for humanity for all times to lead a peaceful and meaningful life, the Anjuman said the revolutionary teachings of the Prophet (SAW) have assumed more significance in view of the 21st century, which is the age of the rise of science and technology. In this context, the responsibilities of the contemporary Muslims have also doubled.

The Anjuman prayed to Allah Almighty to grant the Muslims the potential to implement Islam in their practical lives and make them follow the path shown by Prophet Muhammad (SAW) in letter and spirit.

Meanwhile, expressing serious concern over the continued imprisonment of Mirwaiz-e-Kashmir, the Anjuman said that due to the continued house arrest, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq is not only unable to fulfill his official responsibilities but his mission of spreading the message of the Prophet (SAW) across the valley in this holy month has also been totally affected, which is reprehensible.

The Jammu and Kashmir Peoples League Chairman, Mukhtar Ahmed Waza in his message on Monday greeted people on the eve of Eid-e-Milad-un-Nabi (SAW).

He said the Prophet, Hazrat Muhammad (SAW) taught lessons of compassion, mercy, tolerance and brotherhood to humanity-all of which need to be vigorously inculcated in today’s strife infested world.
