The session began with a recitation from the Holy Quran followed by speeches and poetry in praise of Allah Almighty (Hamd) and the Holy Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him (Naat) by youth and children. The speeches focused on the brilliance of the Arabic language of the Holy Quran, its miracles, rights upon Muslims and daily practices. They were movingly delivered by IECRC’s illustrious youth group. There was also a Children’s program compeered by Ms. Sadiya Riaz Shaikh which included participation by youth on the memorization of 40 Hadeeth and a Children’s Prize Distribution based on memorizing essential supplications (duas) in the life of a Muslim, a booklet developed by Mrs. Zarine Riaz Shaikh.

Family Session

The family session was the highlight of the program with Chief Guest Pakistan Ambassador Mr. Jauhar Saleem, Guest of Honor Shaykh Rashid Al-Muraikhi and Keynote Speaker Hafiz Prof. Dr. Muhammad Abdullah Qadri who had flown in from Karachi with his son Mr. Muhammad Tahir Qadri, Producer of Shifa TV to grace the audience with his knowledge and spirituality. Hafiz Dr. Abdullah Qadri, a descendant of the Bani Hashim is a distinguished scholar of the highest caliber who has not just reached the pinnacle in Islamic knowledge but also in the contemporary sciences and is well aware of how to blend the two to provide solutions to modern man’s many ailments. The most remarkable characteristic about the distinguished keynote speaker was that he has excelled in all fields of life despite being deprived of external vision. He is a shining example that in reality what matters is one’s inner vision to achieve the apex of human potential.

Ambassador Jauhar Saleem emphasized the importance of the inner dimension of Islam which deals with ethics and behavior as a means to change its waning image around the world. Shaykh Rashid head of the Jameeah Imam Malik radi Allahu anhu in a poignant speech delivered in Arabic, highlighted the great stature of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) and his parents (may Allah have mercy on them).

Hafiz Dr. Abdullah Qadri illuminated the audience on the inherent connection between the Quran and the Sahib-ul-Quran, i.e. the Holy Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) through whom humanity received this blessed book from Allah Almighty. Without a meaningful connection with Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) and deep love for him, it is not possible to benefit from the Holy Quran was his essential message. Developing love in the hearts of our men, women, youth and children for the Holy Quran and the Sahib-ul-Quran (peace be upon him) was the essential purpose of this gathering as it is this love which is the driving force for virtuous actions at an individual level and improved understanding amongst individuals and betterment of communities at a societal level.
