All-Pakistan Mashaykh Conference

Minhaj-ul-Quran International organized an All Pakistan Mashaykh Conference in the central secretariat in Model Town on March 3, 2009, which was attended by more than 300 religious scholars, Mashaykh and Pirs from across Pakistan. The participants regarded the conduct of this conference timely for elimination of extremist and terrorist attitudes, protection of teachings of Sufis and Islamic mysticism, revival of religious and spiritual values and the safeguarding of Islamic beliefs.

Addressing the conference, Shaykh-ul-Islam Dr Muhammad Tahir-ul-Qadri said that Islam was a religion of peace and harmony. Conservatism, terrorism and fundamentalism had nothing to do with Islam. He said that the Sufis changed the destiny of millions of people through their character and by popularizing the notions of love, peace and security. They made different societies the hub of peace through their endeavours. He said Mashaykah and Pirs were playing their central role in promoting the peaceful attitudes in society.There was need to do more because the country was caught in the fire of worst kind of terrorism and conspiracies were being hatched to defame Islam and Pakistan.

Dr Muhammad Tahir-ul-Qadri said that this big gathering of Mashaykh indicated the fact that the spiritual centres in the country wanted peace and security. Minhaj-ul-Quran International would formulate such a system of spiritual training with the consultation and guidance of Mashaykh that would be instrumental in fostering spiritual values in society and would help establish durable peace in Pakistan.It has been decided to formulate a one-year course for spiritual training which would contain such ingredients as lectures of the Holy Quran, Hadith, moral, spiritual and scholarly aspects of Islam. This would have positive and deep impact on the society. It has also been decided that real spiritualism would be promoted by doing away with excesses and evil customs. 

At the end Shaykh ul islam said that the Pirs and religious scholars would play their role in spearheading these efforts and it was also agreed that spiritual training of women was as important as that of men.He Said that today’s Mashaykh Conference was witness to the fact that spiritual personalities were aware of their responsibilities.
