Scholars ask faithful to follow the true path of Islam

DUBAI: Muslims around the world get rid of their problems by adopting the teachings of Islam as described by the Almighty Allah and His Messenger Prophet Muhammad (PBUH). Practising Islam even less or more is not allowed and this is one of the major reasons why Muslims are divided into many groups.
These were the remarks of two prominent Islamic scholars, Sheikh Dr Wasiullah Abbas and Sheikh Zafar-ul-Hasan while delivering a lecture in Urdu on “Islam and Moderation” at the Dubai World Trade Centre on Friday as part of the 13th edition of Ramazan Forum.
“Islam and moderation actually are the same as our religion asks us to fully adopt the teachings of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) while practising less or more will be the cause of many evils and result in the division of many groups among the Ummah in the world,” said Sheikh Dr Wasiullah Abbas.
He pointed that many believers incorporated new things even in their basic faith which is not the right thing to do. He pointed that it is the teaching of Islam to be moderate in every phase of life wherever we are. “Whether we are practising Islam in our daily lives or fulfilling our social necessities, we have to be moderate which is the true teaching of Islam and this not only brings happiness in our lives but also creates a better society around us,” he added.
He appreciated the efforts of the Dubai government and the organisers to hold the Ramadan Forum where scholars from different parts of the world congregate and deliver lectures on various topics in various languages. He also urged the people to participate in sessions like these where they could learn the religion through qualified scholars.
Shedding light on various social evils in the Muslim society, he exhorted the believers to understand the religion properly so that they would not become the target of non-believers who are always trying to misguide Muslims through their vicious tactics.
Sheikh Abbas, during his lecture, pointed the different phases of Islam since its advent and the conspiracies of non-believers to divide the Muslim Ummah.
However, Sheikh Zafar-ul-Hasan said that practicising Islam on the teachings of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) was the only way to real success. “Whatever we were told by the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) is the only solution to be on the right path. If we start adopting new things in religion then it will cause more harm rather than peace,” he said.
He said that the Holy Quran and Islam are here to teach us the moderation not only in fulfilling our religious obligations but in our whole life and it is the only thing which will keep Muslim Ummah on the right path.
The 13th annual Ramadan Forum has been organised by the Department of Tourism and Commerce Marketing (DTCM) and is being held under the patronage of Sheikh Ahmed Bin Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Chairman of the Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum Foundation. The 12-day forum will run until July 14, 2014 at the Dubai World Trade Centre (DWTC), offering an enhanced and bigger agenda of activities and events this year including educational programmes, training workshops and more.
