ISLAMABAD: A two-day International Rahmatul-Lil-Alameen Conference on Sunday concluded at Jinnah Convention Centre in Islamabad.
President Dr Arif Alvi addressed the concluding session of the conference, which was being held under the auspices of the Ministry of Religious Affairs and Interfaith Harmony.
It is the 43rd conference aimed at promoting religious harmony, tolerance, brotherhood and equality, respect for humanity, non-violence, unity, reconciliation and culture of dialogue.
Prominent ulema and mashaikh, scholars and foreign delegates participated in the conference and threw light on various aspects of the life and teachings of the Holy Prophet Hazrat Muhammad (SAWW).
Awards and prizes were also distributed among the position holders in Seerat Books, Maqala-e-Seerat and Naats.
On the first day of the conference, Prime Minister Imran Khan said his government raised the issue of blasphemous caricatures in the Netherlands at the international level that prompted the Dutch government to cancel the sacrilegious exhibition forthwith.
PM Khan said his government would move a resolution across different countries for their endorsement to prevent occurrence of such sacrilegious events in future.
The prime minister directed the Higher Education Commission to set up special chairs on Seerat-Un-Nabi at three different universities ensuring a specific research on the life, character and teachings of the last Prophet Muhammad (PBUH).
He said it would help educate and enlighten our new generation as to how our Holy Prophet (PBUH) carved out the first ever Islamic welfare state of Madina and how he transformed the characters of Arabs in a short span of time.
He said a number of people had become the custodians of Islam. “Let me assure you, Pakistan will become a great country,” said Khan, adding that Pakistan was created in the name of Islam.
Imran said the Almighty Allah had created every person for a purpose. “I began realizing a change in myself after I studied the life of the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH),” he added.
