Life of the Prophet (SAW), is our treasure 

By

Sabahat F. Siddiqi

Jeddah, June 2004 The Pakistani Literary Forum marked the birth and death anniversary of the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) here recently at a Restaurant at Amir Majed Street.

The women’s group of the Forum organized a seminar on the life and times of Prophet Mohammad (peace be upon him). The literary forum called ‘Silsilah’ and its members teamed up to present the religion and its contents to women from different walks of life.

Some 200 women were present at the venue. The main objective of this gathering was to brief the gathering about the religious beliefs and practicalities of Islam to the people, said Naureen Talat Arooba, founder and president of the literary group.

Subject of the poetic seminar was based on the life and times of Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him), the subject of a wealth of Muslim narrative sources and the Prophet’s personality as a role model.

Of these the most successful in the Muslim world, and the best-known outside it, is the life of the Prophet, this is our treasure, said Tabassum Alvi, Secretary General of the literary group. A number of members paid poetic tributes to Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him), while others presented papers on his life.

Masooda Afzaal described the Prophet s sense of understanding and sense of humor, which highlighted his relationship with his wives and people.

It is true that people s academic capabilities differ and thus some will be unable to grasp the truth of it and therefore may not accept it, Masooda said. They need logical reasons for everything. They have the opportunity to ask the scholars now.

Sadia Nadeem Anwar, Afshan Deed, Arjumand Fahim and Samra Amaan also paid poetic tributes to Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him). Afshan Nigar shed some light on the physical appearance of Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him). She described his looks and manner of speaking.

Nayyar Yousuf described the birth of the Noble Prophet (peace be upon him). He was born into the Arab tribe of Quraysh in southern Hijaz now the western part of the present Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) was born in Makkah, which has been a home to the religious sanctuary of great antiquity, the Holy Ka aba.

Tabassum Alvi gave details of modern science and the Prophet s sayings in her paper. She said our young generations should know that there is a strong link between modern science and the Prophet s (peace be upon him) sayings.

In her paper, Alvi informed the audience how the most remarkable things in the Quran deal with science. The Quran was revealed in the 7th century CE to the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) and contains unbelievable scientific facts that are being discovered in the 21st century!

The observance of five daily prayers is a scientific proof that Islam, besides their spiritual benefits, lays importance on physical fitness of both men and women, said Alvi. A better understanding can enable us to follow our Islamic religion and make ourselves physically and mentally fit and perform our daily chores.

The speakers also discussed how religion and science have always been considered to be twin sisters by Islam. And today at a time when science has taken great strides, they still continue to be so.
