ICNA Seerah Conference November 21, 2020


11 19 20

 

 

The Seerah Conference organized by the Tarbiyah Department together with the Da’wah Department for Saturday November 21st, 2020 could not have come at a better time. In fact, this conference has been in the planning since the beginning of October long before the blasphemous cartoons of Rasoolullah peace be up on him (pbuh) once again emerged. This time in France.


We cannot imagine that in this age of enlightenment and information, leaders of the so- called free world would resort to such new low, distorting the noble personality of Rasoolullah peace be up on him (pbuh) and using it as a smoke screen for their failed policies, leadership and handling of crises such as the pandemic. Then they turn around and most shamelessly say Islam is in crisis. Where is the intelligence?

Such blatant disrespect and vicious assaults on Islam’s most sacred personality Muhammad peace be up on him (pbuh) are now at a colossal level. Any blasphemy on Rasoolullah peace be up on him (pbuh) wherever and whenever happens, affects over 2 billion Muslims and other like-minded people around the globe. For us Muslims raising our voices in front of Prophet Muhammad peace be up on him (pbuh) is disrespect that can lead to the erasing of our good deeds. Allah All Praises Be To Allah says:

O you who believe! Raise not your voices above the voice of the Prophet peace be up on him (pbuh), nor speak aloud to him in talk as you speak aloud to one another, lest your deeds may be rendered fruitless while you perceive not. (Al-Quran 49:2)

Historically Muslims live alongside peoples of different faiths, different ethnic groups, different language families and different customs, all living together for centuries in relative peace in the same place. Such is the teachings of Muhammad peace be up on him (pbuh).
He peace be up on him (pbuh) showed the world how warring tribes, different ethnicities and people of various different status can put their grudges aside and come together and stand before their Lord and worship Him in peace and harmony.

We cannot let hate and bigotry dominate the conversation. We must bring back the pure and noble character of Rasoolullah peace be up on him (pbuh) to be the main discourse. Thus, this conference is not a reaction of what has happened in France but it is an opportunity for Muslims to be reminded of this great benefactor to humanity: Muhammad Mustafaa peace be up on him (pbuh). He indeed was Allah peace be up on him (pbuh)’s gift to humanity. Allah All Praises Be To Allah says:

Indeed Allah conferred a great favor on the believers when He sent among them a Messenger (Muhammad peace be up on him (pbuh)) from among themselves reciting unto them His Verses (the Qur’an), and purifying them (from sins by their following him), and instructing them (in) the Book (the Qur’an) and Al Hikmah [the wisdom and the Sunnah of the Prophet peace be up on him (pbuh) etc.)], while before that they had been in manifest error.

The theme of the Seerah Conference is : The Prophet peace be up on him (pbuh): Sent with a Mission. We hope to address some of these great qualities of Rasoolullah peace be up on him (pbuh). Some of the topics of this conference would be:
• What is So Unique About the Last Messenger peace be up on him (pbuh)?
• Muhammad peace be up on him (pbuh): Ultimate Symbol of Unity
• How the Messenger peace be up on him (pbuh) Changed the Hearts?

• Concerns of a Dai Emulating Rasoolullah peace be up on him (pbuh)
• Prophet peace be up on him (pbuh) Efforts to Eradicate Racism
