Srinagar, June 1: Renowned Islamic scholar and social reformer Maulana Khalilur Rahman Sajjad Nomani Naqshbandi Friday delivered a lecture on ‘Islam and Modern Age’ at the University of Kashmir.
The event was organized by the Nigeen Lake Conservation Organization (NLCO), a non-governmental organization, and managed by the Forum for Revival of Human Values.
Stressing that Muslims have a global responsibility to share, Moulana Sajjad said “people have to share their social responsibilities with dedication and commitment. While they have to be in tandem with the dynamics of modern age, at the same time they have to follow the teachings of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH).”
“The Prophet of Islam (PBUH) was sent to teach the Ummah the correct way of life. He set the greatest principles to lead our lives. But sadly, it is going the other way round with people shying away from their responsibilities and turning away from the teachings of Islam. We must read the Holy Quran and follow the teachings of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) in letter and spirit for better today and tomorrow,” Maulana Nomani told a massive gathering of people at the University’s Convocation Complex. Thousands of people from different walks of life had turned up at the Convocation Complex to hear Nomani’s speech. These included students, bureaucrats, engineers, doctors, professors and businessmen.
Nomani said “Science and Islam can never be contradictory to each other.” “Modern sciences are the need of the hour and we should study them. But we should also realize that Quran is the solution to all confusions,” he said.
He said Islam and Science together revolutionized the world. “The basics of Science are sourced from the teachings of Quran and when both met they illuminated the world,” he said.
On the occasion, the Kashmir University Vice Chancellor Professor Talat Ahmad requested Maulana Nomani to visit the varsity again and again. “Kashmir University is proud to host such a luminary and we are looking for his more visits,” he said.
Later, Chairman Nigeen Lake Conservation Organization (NLCO) Manzoor Ahmad Wangnoo thanked Prof Talat Ahmad and other faculty members of the Kashmir University for hosting Maulana Nomani. He also thanked the management of Convocation Complex for making all the facilities available in the auditorium.
Prof Talat appreciated NLCO for holding the event of such a great importance, urging them to continue holding such events in future.
