'State is responsible for taking care of orphans, needy'
ISLAMABAD: President Dr Arif Alvi on Wednesday said women’s share in inheritance should be given as per teachings of the Holy Prophet Hazrat Muhammed (SAWW), ARY News reported.
“It is responsibility of the state to take care of orphans, needy and destitute people,” he said while addressing the concluding session of two-day International Rehmatal-Lil-Aalameen Conference in Islamabad.
He said Prophet Muhammed (SAWW) is the great role model for Muslims in every aspect of life. We should only follow the golden teachings of the Holy Prophet (SAWW) in true spirit, he added.
The president said we should come out of our egos and demonstrate patience and forgiveness as the Holy Prophet (SAWW) has always emphasised on mercy towards all creatures of Allah Almighty (SWT).
He said the Holy Prophet (SAWW) had never used harsh words to hurt anyone.
Arif Alvi said water conservation is also a hallmark of Holy Prophet’s teachings.
He also distributed awards among prize winning authors, who wrote books on Seerat.
Addressing the conference, Minister for Religious Affairs and Interfaith Harmony Dr Noor-ul-Haq Qadri said the life of Holy Prophet (SAWW) guides his followers into eternal success.
He said the nation was celebrating Eid Milad-u-Nabi (SAWW) to highlight the life and teachings of the Holy Prophet (SAWW).
The minister made it clear that a person declared as non-Muslim in the Constitution of Pakistan cannot be declared as Muslim and no one can dare to amend the Constitution to get a non-Muslim declared as Muslim.
On the occasion, fateha was offered for the Muslims, who lost their lives in a recent blast in Afghanistan, Kashmir, Syria, and other parts of the world.
On the conclusion of the conference, a declaration was also adopted paying rich tribute to the Holy Prophet (SAWW) for making the humanity respectable, giving honor to women, and poor segments of society.
The declaration also welcomed the EU court for differentiating between undermining a religion and freedom of expression. It said blasphemous acts against sacred personalities of any religion were a punishable offence.
