Malegaon: Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Abdullah said on Sunday that Islam and Muslims would remain strong despite enemy conspiracies, including those by Muslim extremists.


“I would like to tell you that the Islamic world today is strong by the Grace of God,” the Saudi Arabian leading daily Arab News quoted the King as saying.


King Abdullah's assertions came while he was delivering the welcome speech in a function in Riyadh to confer the Prince Naif International Prize for Sunnah and Contemporary Islamic Studies.


“Whatever the enemies do, including some Muslims who are enemies of Islam, would not affect the Islamic faith and Muslims. Muslims would remain strong with their slogan of monotheism, Lailaha Illallah Muhammadan Rasulullah (There is no god but God and Muhammad is His Prophet),” said King Abdullah.


He further wished Muslim leaders, who came from across the globe, every success in their endeavors and urged them to become good messengers of Islam wherever they are.


Sheikh Arshad Madani, president of Jamiat Ulema-e-Hind and professor of Hadith at Darul Uloom Deoband, thanked the Saudi government for the warm welcome it accorded to the participants of the Prince Naif Award ceremony, said the Arab News report.


Madani, the son of the renowned Indian Islamic scholar and famous freedom fighter, Sheikh Hussain Ahmed Madani, commended the Saudi leadership for winning a leading position for the Kingdom in the comity of nations and making the Qur’an and Sunnah the basis for governing the country’s affairs.


Sheikh Madani also noted Saudi Arabia’s efforts in serving religion and supporting Muslim communities around the globe.


“The good works of Saudi Arabia are not limited to Saudis or to Muslim countries but cover the whole world,” he pointed out.


The meeting at Al-Yamamah Palace was attended by Second Deputy Premier and Minister of Interior Prince Naif and top officials.


Crown Prince Sultan also received the foreign guests and praised Prince Naif’s efforts in the service of Islam and the Sunnah of the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him). He also underscored the great role being played by the Prince Naif award in promoting studies and research on the Sunnah.


Speaking at the occasion, Yemeni Minister of Endowments and Guidance Hamoud Al-Hattar said the Prince Naif Prize was instrumental in encouraging Muslim researchers around the world to focus on the Sunnah.


He praised the authorities for presenting a posthumous award to Sheikh Ahmed Shakir, a great scholar of Hadith who died 50 years ago, in appreciation of his contributions.


The secretariat of the prize had received 420 research works relating to the four categories of the prize and rejected 138 of them for not fulfilling the set conditions.
