Eid Mild-un-Nabi (SAWW) held at Sir Syed University

By Abdul Qadir Qureshi
The Holy Quran is, in every detail, a unique and miraculous text which was revealed by Allah upon Holy Prophet Muhammad and over the centuries not a single word of the divine book has changed.
“Holy Quran, being the last revealed words of Allah, is the prime source of every Muslim's faith and practice,” Chancellor, Sir Syed University of Engineering and Technology (SSUET), Engr Z.A. Nizami stressed.
Addressing a Jalsa-e-Seerat-un-Nabi (SAWW) held by the SSUET at its campus, Engr Nizami said Islam means complete submission to the will of Allah. He said Islam is both a religion and a complete way of life.
Chancellor Nizami pointed out that Sir Syed University is the only engineering university where Pakistan Studies and Islamiat are taught as compulsory subjects and efforts are being made to computerize all information and material pertaining to the religion of Islam.
He referred to a book written by Michael H. Hart and said although he was a Christian but he put the name of Muhammad (SAWW) at the  top of the list of great leaders of the universe in his book entitled “The 100: A Ranking of the Most Influential Persons in History’. “We are considering the inclusion this book in the syllabus,” Engr Nizami added.
Speaking on the occasion, Allama Kokab Noorani said Holy Prophet Muhammed (SAWW)) is the soul of universe and when he went to the Mairaj the whole universe became standstill until he came back to earth.
He said the Holy Prophet Muhammad is Rehmatul-lil-Alameen and 4 qualities are necessary for ‘rahim’ like he must be alive, he must be aware of his dependents, he must be close to them, and he must have the power of rehmat.
Another religious scholar Allama Syed Razi Jaffar Naqvi said Muslim Umma should lead the world on the basis of knowledge and wisdom since they have the divine book “Quran” with them for true guidance. But unfortunately other nations took the advantage of knowledge of Quran and developed according to its teachings.
On the occasion, in their speeches, university students Umar Khan Ufaq, Afroz Khan and Fatima Saima Ahmed highlighted Seerat-e-Tayyaba while Mahmood-ul-Hassan Ashrafi, Abdul Haseeb Khan and Waqas Tariq Sherwani recited naats.
Famous poet Khumar Farooqui expressed the Muslim’s ardent feelings about Holy Prophet Hazrat Muhammad (SAWW) through his poetic contribution. The milad concluded with prayer offered by Mufti Athar Naeemi.
