Monday, March 31, 2014

Kuwait Kerala Sunni Muslim Council, the subsidiary of Samastha Kerala Jamyiyyathul Ulamaa & Sunni Yuvajana Sangham conducted 2 day Grand Event in a specially built auditorium and stage to accommodate more than 3,000 followers of Ahlu Sunnath Va Jamaath at Abbasiya, Central Indian school Premises marked grand success. The Islamic festival was organized in coinciding with its 15th year of foundation in Kuwait.

Most of the audiences were from various districts of Kerala state residing in Kuwait attended the 2 days program spending 7 hours on each night starting 05:00 p.m. to 12:30 a.m. People were fascinated by the spiritual Islamic speeches of great orators and the world famous Islamic Dae’es: Shaikh Noushad Baqawi, Sayid Munavvar Ali Shihab Thangal (The youngest Leader of Keralite community and Muslims), Shaikhuna Koyakutty Ustad (Senior Islamic Scholar and President of Samastha Islamic Educational Board, Kerala).

The first and second day programs were opened with Duaa and welcome speeches by Mohammed Ali Faisi (Secretary) and Hamza Baqawi (General Secretaryof KKSMC). Sayid Nasir Al-Mashoor Thangal, (Chairman of Sunni Council) and Shaikh Abdussalam Moulavi (President, Sunni Council) presided the events on 27th & 28th March respectively, with their presidential addresses. Sayid Nasir Thangal in his presidential speech said that if you are a good Muslim, and follow Allah with your whole heart, Allahu (swt) will surely reward you. Possibly more than Allahu (swt) will reward other people. Always help the poor and orphans by any means possible. Feed them; give them some money, and etc. These have a lot of deeds (thawab). Never waste your Time on useless things. Time is a blessing, make sure the way you use it always comes as fruitful. Other orators said that to Read the Quran a lot. Think deeply in every sentence's ((Ayat)) meaning in Quran. Discuss among your friends and seek for their conclusions. Whenever you find that you can't understand the main meaning of any sentence, refer to "Explanations of Quran" or "Tafsir" books from great ethereal persons, or ask a knowledgeable person. It will keep your iman stronger. It will keep your soul pure. You'll get thawab for every letter you said. The Prophet Muhammad(peace and blessings upon him) said, "Two hours of thinking in Quran's meaning, is better than one hundred years of praying."

Honorable Shaikh Koyakutty Usthad, President of Samastha Kerala Islamic Educational Board, Kerala, who runs more than 10,000 Madrassas under Samastha Kerala Islamic syllabus, is visiting first time in Kuwait said he is pleased to admire the organizers of this mega event and said that the Sunni Council must promulgate and find more time to the propagation of true Islam, impart of religious education and activities against superstitions and un-Islamic traditions as its primary and supreme objectives. President of Samastha Kerala Isalmatha Vidayabyasa board, who inaugurated the second day of the grand event advised that to Recite Allahu Subahanu wattaala’s name every time. Reciting Allah's name will ultimately make us a strong Muslim because we are constantly reminded of what good Almighty Allah (swt) has done for us and all of humanity., also known as Zikr in Islamic nomenclature (terminology). The purpose of life is to worship Allah and work our way to Paradise, which Allahu (swt) created us for. But Paradise is not cheap - however the harder the struggle the more beautiful the rewards. Allah has given each of us something to struggle with, and in Allah’s (swt) Mercy Allah (swt) chose that struggle that we were most capable of. No matter how hard it might be, remember that "Allah does not burden a soul with more than it can bear". So, we have to make dua’a to Allah all the time.

Sayyid Munavvarali Shihab Thangal who opened the 1st day event with Duaa said that Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) taught us to carry out good deeds, no matter how small they are. In Islam, even a smile to a neighbour or removing a harmful object from the road, is classed as an act of charity. We should encourage for secular education compatible with religious beliefs, and calls for religious tolerance, interfaith friendship, peaceful existence and national progress. Be grateful to ALLAHU subhanuwataala for everything you have, be it spiritual, mental, or physical. The more gracious you are, the more you will realize how much you have been blessed. And, by doing this, Allah willing, you will be stronger because you will believe that Allah is omnipresent.

Noushad Baqawi, the Main speaker and world famous “Daee” of the 2 day event advised us so many good deeds to be carried in our daily life. Firstly, accept that Allah Almighty exists and that His attributes are beyond our imagination. He is capable of everything and anything. Faith in Allah with knowledge strictly deduced from Qur'an and Sunnah is incumbent. Secondly, accept that Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him) is the last of a long line of Prophets that started with Prophet Adam (peace be upon him), and continued with such notable figures as Prophet Nooh(Noah)(peace be upon him), Prophet Ibrahim(Abraham)(peace be upon him), Prophet Moosa(Moses)(peace be upon him), and others. Also,accept that the Holy Quran is the most recent and true word of Allah. Pray sincerely. Affirm that Allah is the closest to you with His knowledge. Always pray on time, never delay. Never do things that will prevent you from doing tasks that are of much greater importance. Nothing can be more important than obeying that which Allah asks of you. For instance, even while working or studying, halt everything you are doing and go to the nearest Masjid to pray. If somebody were to ask you where you are heading, say that you are answering Allah's call to prayer. Protect your chastity. You must know that adultery is a sinful act, and thus must always avoid it. This applies to both men and women. Women should not wear tight or revealing clothing, and men should always lower their gaze and be modest. None of you [truly] believes until he wishes for his brother what he wishes for himself." (Bukhari, Muslim). Be good to your family, The Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) said, "The best of you is he who is the best to his family." Accordingly, be kind to them, always support them. Always think right. Never let evil ideas come into your mind.

Shaikh Noushad reiterated the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) continuously insisted on people treating others correctly. He repeated some of the hadiths (sayings of the Prophet) regarding our behaviour towards others: "By Allah, he does not believe! By Allah, he does not believe! By Allah, he does not believe!" It was said, "Who is that, O Allah's Apostle?" He said, "That person whose neighbour does not feel safe from his evil." (Bukhari). Shaikh Noushad warned the audience that not to send our old parents to “camps” for nursing them by others while we are alive. Be gracious towards your parents. They work very hard to sustain the lives in their households, which includes bringing food and other things. Your mother suffered great pains to bring you into this world. What have you done to say thanks to them? They have brought joy to your life by buying you presents every now and then. Have you acknowledged that and appreciated them? Do whatever they expect of you and you will surely be fine in the eyes of Allah. He said to remember the Holy Quranic verses quoted below:

''Thy Allah hath decreed that ye worship none but Him, and that ye be kind to parents. Whether one or both of them attain old age in thy life, say not to them a word of contempt, nor repel them, but address them in terms of honour. And, out of kindness, lower to them the wing of humility, and say: My Allah! Bestow on them thy Mercy even as they cherished me in childhood.'' (Qur'an 17:23)

Practice felicity towards everything. Be gentle and good-hearted not only to your p
