The Chancellor of the Sir Syed University of Engineering & Technology (SSUET), Karachi, Engr Mohammad Adil Usman, has said that the Seerat of Prophet Hazrat Mohammed (Peace be upon him) and the Quran are essentially synonymous.
"Quran is the mirror in which the full-fledged life picture of the prophet can be seen. We shall be following the Holy Prophet, if sincerely following the Quran in its totality,” he observed during his address at the Jalsa-e-Seerat-un-Nabi organized by SSUET's Literary Art and Culture Forum.
Engr Adil Usman said if the seerat quality of Prophet Muhammed (PBUH) is imbibed in our lives, it can transform impossibility into possibility.
“Our Holy Prophet extracted mankind from darkness into light by leading them to Deen-e-Islam. He established the first welfare Islamic state in Madina and gave a new turn to the human history,” the Chancellor remarked.
Engr Adil Usman pointed out that success can be achieved with total "Tawakkal" on Allah and by imbibing the seerat of Holy Prophet Mohammed (PBUH) in our lives
On the occasion Allama Dr Noor Ahmed Shahtaaz, Director Shaikh Zaid Islamic Centre, delivered an enlightening speech on the life and message of Holy Prophet Hazrat Mohammad (Peace be Upon Him).
“We cannot have access to Allah without pursuing the guidance provided by the Prophet. No knowledge is against knowledge, and Islam appreciates every kind of learning. There is no harm in getting knowledge, but, of course, in begging. It is by nature that every man wants freedom. The Prophets were not against human freedom, but they set certain boundaries of freedom,” Allama Noor Ahmed Shah Taaz stated.
Famous Naat Khwans Mahmood-ul-Hasan Ashrafi, Muhammad Haris Kamal, Haris Ahmed and Osama Farooqui enlightened the guests with soul-stirring naats.
Earlier the SSUET students, Shah Zaib Rehmani and Tayyaba Fasih, in their speeches in English and Urdu respectively highlighted the Seerat of Hazrat Mohammad (PBUH).
On the occasion students of the university presented Qaseeda’e Burda Shareef and Salam. The event concluded with the Dua by Allama Mufti Naeemi of Darul Uloom Naeemia.
