Holy Prophet Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him) came as mercy to world: PM

ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Imran Khan emphasized the importance of learning about Prophet Muhammad’s (Peace Be Upon Him) life and teachings in order to become better human beings.
“The Holy Prophet Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him) came as a mercy to the world. Prophet’s (Peace Be Upon Him) achievements are incomparable,” the premier noted while addressing the opening session of a two-day International Rahmatul-lil-Alameen (Peace Be Upon Him) Conference at Jinnah Convention Centre in Islamabad here on Tuesday.
The International Rahmatul-lil-Alameen (Peace Be Upon Him) Conference is underway under the auspices of Ministry of Religious Affairs and Interfaith Harmony. The conference has been organised in connection with the countrywide celebration of 12th Rabiul Awwal, marking the birthday of Holy Prophet Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him).
Recalling his younger days, PM Imran told the audience that once his belief in God strengthened and his understanding of Islam deepened, he realised the purpose of life was to serve humanity and live for others, rather than focusing on oneself.
“It is our country’s misfortune that despite having been created in the name of Islam, some [elements] have [hijacked] the religion of mercy. They claim to be the safe-keepers of our religion, but their acts hurt us, hurt our children,” the premier said. “Pakistan will become a great nation one day, but it will only become so when we change ourselves.
“Children should be taught about [the importance of] character, about how to become better human beings,” he continued.
PM Imran informed that his government is working on establishing a Seerat chair in three universities, and stressed upon the need for scholars to research on the life and teachings of Holy Prophet Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him).

The conference is aimed at highlighting the soft image of Islam and the teachings of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him), and will reward the authors of the books and research papers written on the life of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him).
Over 2,500 people from all walks of life, including parliamentarians, ambassadors, ulema, scholars, students of religious seminaries, universities, deans of universities and representatives of chambers of commerce and industry are attending the moot.
Religious scholars from Egypt, Morocco, Saudi Arabia, and the United Arab Emirates have already confirmed their participation in the conference.
Prizes will be awarded to 21 authors for writing books on Seerat and Na’at and to 32 scholars for writing research papers on Seerat. A total of 53 authors will be awarded prizes in nine categories of Seerat and Naat.
President Dr Arif Alvi will preside over the closing session of the conference.
