Mumbai Islamic Conference promises to be bigger, better and more effective

The Indian Business Capital Mumbai is once again ready to witness the Islamic Dawah Conference, this time in Urdu. The ten-day conference, all set to get under way   »

Mumbai: Islam stands for peace, harmony, brotherhood and co-existence. It safeguards the interests of every human being and guarantees a peaceful and just society, said Shaikh Usman As Siddiquee while inaugurating the ten day Islamic Dawah Conference October 22 here in Mumbai.


"The guidelines and the principles Islam has laid upon its followers has brought peace and harmony in the world. It safeguards the interests of every human being and stresses in clear terms the freedom of religious practice and co-existence", Shaikh Usman who is the former Imam of Masjid Khaif, Mina, near Makkah Saudi Arabia said while delivering the Friday sermon.


"Some of the rights introduced by Islam specially for the women and downtrodden were totally new to the world", he added.


The former Imam rejected the propaganda which is underway about Islam by a section in the world.


"Today some people try to spread misconceptions about Islam and tries to project Islam in a way that has no relation to its true teachings and actual principles", he said.


"The whole history of Islam and the entire life of Prophet Mohammad (Peace be upon him) and that of his companions are full of instances to show how they brought peace in the world and paved the way for the formation of a just and peaceful society while working on the principles and guidelines laid down in Islam", he said even as thousands of people sat listening to the sermon with apt attention.


The conference held at the Sumaiya ground in Mumbai and organised by Islamic Research Foundation (IRF) that began with the Friday sermon October 22 is fourth in Mumbai. It will end on October 31.


Eminent scholars and Islamic preachers from India and abroad have come to the venue to address the conference which is orgainsed first time in Urdu. Earlier three conferences organised on the same ground and at the same times in the past three years were in the English language.


Later, while addressing a press conference Dr Zakir Naik Founder President of IRF elaborated in details the purpose and objectives of the conference.


"For people of all beliefs, this conference will be a learning opportunity to realize, reflect on and correct their misunderstanding (if any) about Islam in the light of talks by authoritative and renowned international speakers."


Blaming Western media for creating misconceptions about Islam, Naik said that it chose to “glorify black sheep within the community as exemplary Muslims”. This ended up projecting a wrong picture of Islam.

“This conference is to clear certain misconceptions and tell the world how peace is the solution for humanity,” he said.


On the Sena’s demand for banning the burqa, he added that any person’s rights should not be snatched. “Previously, I read that it [the demand] was because a baby was stolen. The next day, I also read somewhere that a lady dressed like a sadhvi had stolen a baby. Does that mean that she, too, should not be allowed to wear what she wants to? Not wearing the naqab in public would be tantamount to impinging on the person’s freedom,” he said.
