Bangalore, April 24: A two day All India seminar under the auspices of Majlis-e-Ulema Tehreek-e-Islami, Karnataka-Goa unit, was inaugurated in Bangalore on Saturday, April 24.

Speaking on the occasion Dr Muhammad Abdul Haq Ansari, Director, Islamic Academy, Delhi, said that Islam has two aspects wherein one deals with Almighty Allah and the other with the society. Neither of them is more important than the other. Islam has provided guidance on both these aspects in great detail. People who live in a society, whether rich or poor, educated or uneducated, have certain responsibilities towards the society which cannot be neglected, he said.

Dr Muhammad Rafath, member of the Markazi Majlis-e-Shoora, Jamath-e-Islami Hind, and editor of monthly ‘Zindagi’ wished that the seminar achieves immense success in making people think on the economic and political aspects in the light of Islamic values. He mentioned that conditions of the society should enter into the domain of our discussions in the light of Quran and sunnah. Whatever guidelines Allah has given, are full of wisdom. We have to use it and rescue the humanity from the slavery of this world. He also threw light on the responsibility of the Ummah with respect to propogation, enjoining what is good and forbidding what is bad, something that has been forgotten and is being neglected.

Abdul Raqeeb, Member, Markazi Majlis-e-Shoora, JIH, in his address said that along with knowledge one should know the present trends of the society. One who is unaware of what is going on in the society, cannot carry out any revolutionary activity. One of the requirements of the present day is that Ulemas come out of their camps and guide the society. They must make an attempt to understand this country. Depending on the changing trends in society, the commandments in the shariah also change. Today, Ulema should be able to present a practical alternatives to the people. When Prophet Yusuf (as) was asked to interpret the dream, he first provided an idea and then interpreted the dream. Similarly our Ulemas must be able to provide ideas and schemes, he said.

Moulana Wahiduddin Khan Umri Madani, Majlis-e-Ulema, introduced the guests to the gathering. He briefed about the activities of the Majlis-e-Ulema. Throwing light on the topics to be discussed during the seminar, he said that in the next 10 years, economic and political issues would be among the topmost issues that the Ummah would be up against. He also informed that the matters discussed in this seminar would be given the form of a book.

Alhamdulillah, very good initiative! But is it possible to make unity within Ulemas!! who depend on these relegion isuues for their daily bread nd butter!! If our Umma teach them not to depend on professional moulvees then there will be some bright future chance. Otherwise they fight for these disunity of umma to continue.
