Impending war on Syria part of global agenda: Dr Tahir-ul-Qadri addresses Sunni Conference in UK

The Muslim community needs to rise above their narrow differences and forge unity and brotherhood in their ranks without any further loss of time otherwise they will continue to fall prey to internal and external conspiracies and will ultimately be eliminated from the face of earth. The only solution to sectarian differences among the Muslims is to comply with the teachings of the Holy Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) both in letter and spirit.

These views were expressed by Shaykh-ul-Islam Dr Muhammad Tahir-ul-Qadri while addressing international ‘Tajdar e Khatm-e-Nabuwwat’ Conference in Birmingham, which was held under the banner of central Jamaat Ahle Sunnat UK & Europe. The audience, which comprised people from various walks of life, listened to the keynote address of Shaykh-ul-Islam with rapt attention.

Dr Muhammad Tahir-ul-Qadri said that the international powers were crating ‘situations’ in these countries by using their trained ‘Taliban and Al-Qaeda accomplices’ that could justify their intervention in accordance with carefully calibrated strategy. He said that impending attack on Syria was part of the same strategy. He said that the war against Syria is part of global agenda. The power and wealth of some of the Islamic countries is lending a helping hand in this regard. He made it clear that sectarian differences never existed in Iraq, Syria and Egypt and no sectarian-based violent activities took place in these countries in the past.

Dr Tahir-ul-Qadri drew on the Holy Quran and Hadith and gave a meaty and logical talk on the subject of status and station of the Holy Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him). He said that he who did not subscribe to the exalted station of the Holy Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) was out of fold of Islam without any shadow of doubt and the same would be the most important question asked in the grave as well. The man would be asked as to what he thought of the person and station of the Holy Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him). He said that solution to all raging problems facing the Muslim world lay in complete compliance of the Holy Prophet’s teachings.

Pir Abdul Qadir Shah, patron of central Jamaat e Ahle Sunnat UK & Europe, addressed gathering online from Pakistan. Other distinguished speakers who spoke at the Conference included Pir Naqib-ur-Rehman, Pir Ateeq-ur-Rehman Faizpuri, Allama Ahmad Nisar Baig Qadri, Qazi Abdul Aziz Chishti, Prof Ahmad Hassan Tirmizi, Sheikh Muhammad Afzal Saeedi, Abu Ahmad Sherazi, Sahibzada Ahmad Hassan Naqeebi, Dr Naseem Ahmad, Pir Sayyid Mazhar Shah Jilani, Maulana Bostan-ul-Qadri, Sahibzada Zaheer Ahmad Naqshbandi, Allama Abdul Latif Qadri, Maulana Muhammad Yaqub Chishti and counselor Nadeem Ali.

The speakers paid tributes to the members of UK Parliament for their rejection of a resolution calling for attack on Syria. They also condemned the American plan of launching an attack on Syria.

Dr Muhammad Tahir-ul-Qadri said that the Holy Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) came to the world to rid of all kinds of oppression, injustice, violence and cruelty. He said that if we acted upon teachings of the Holy Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him), we would stay on the right course. He said that the lives of the Companions were the glaring proof of reverence and respect for the Holy Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him). He said that Islam is all about respect for human rights and dignity of humanity without any discrimination.
