Islahee Jamaat & Aalmi Tanzeem ul Arifeen of shrine Hazrat Sultan Bahoo RA organized ‘Annual Melaad e Mustafa & Haq Bahoo Conference’ at Jinnah Convention Centre Islamabad. Patron-in-chief Hazrat Sultan Muhammad Ali presided over the conference.
Secretary General of Islahee Jamaat, Sahibzada Sultan Ahmad Ali addressed the auspicious gathering. He said that there was no denying the fact that the message given by Sufis is directly in concordance with the injunctions of the Holy Quran. They manifested pragmatic precepts of the Holy Quran. Most of the literature written by Sufis is full of Quranic verses along with a rich pool of the sayings of the Holy Prophet PBUH. Our society today is facing an acute shortage of morality and sincerity. Akhlaq (ethics) and Ikhlas (sincerity) are the main attributes that are on decline today in our society. These two qualities are vehemently propagated by contemporary Sufis.
The speakers said that another major challenge faced by our society is the fact that politics is guided by socio-economic interests. Recent events particularly with special reference to the prevailing social evils in our society provide evidence in this regard. One can find many people defending a murderer in our daily courts, but it is really difficult to find people standing behind the aggrieved family. Ethics and sincerity are depleting fast from our society.
Deteriorating condition of Kashmir and Palestine as well as the Middle East speaks volumes about the fact that international politics is purely guided by economic and political interests. Love and sympathy for Ummah has been the guiding principle since the advent of Islam. Unfortunately, the concept of Ummah is also declining today. Muslim society has been intentionally divided into various factions through international games and Muslims are now at the mercy of proxy wars. Weapons are beings used to make money and human blood has become cheaper than any other commodity.
International community is silent over the persecution of Muslims in Kashmir and Myanmar just because of their economic interests. Middle East is burning not only due to the negligence of Muslim leadership but also because of the hegemonic designs of international politics. However, the speakers pointed out that Sufis are great towering personalities who manifested Islam in letter and spirit. Their style of love, peace and harmony is the need of the hour. ‘Melaad e Mustafa & Haq Bahoo Conference’ is a landmark event in this regard. Such events will help a great deal in manifesting the true picture of Islam while completely disregarding the menace of racism and terrorism.
