JIH’s 75 yrs: Ahmedabad Unit holds a grand city meet; calls Muslims to ‘enter into Islam completely’

March 25, 2023

Ahmedabad: Jamaat-E-Islami Hind (JIH) Ahmedabad has organized a grand city conference here at Gandhi Hall, Juhapura to mark 75 years of the organisation’s formation. The central theme of the conference was ‘Enter into Islam completely [and perfectly]’ (ادخلوا فی السلم کافۃ  – Quran: Al-Baqarah –   verse 208) in which about two thousand people including a large number of women attended.

Delivering his presidential address, JIH National Secretary Maulana Raziulislam Nadvi elucidated the main theme of the conference in four points. He explained, “First, the verse addresses believers and demands them to fulfill all requirements of faith. Second, believers are being told to be obedient to Allah and do not disobey His commands. Islam also means obedience to Allah. So, whoever calls himself a Muslim, declares that he will always remain obedient to Allah. Third, the ‘kaffah’ has two meanings. Its first meaning is to follow Islam completely with all its injunctions, rather than accepting some and ignoring others. Muslims should accept all Islamic teachings sincerely, irrespective of their likes and dislikes. Its second meaning is to follow teachings of Islam collectively, as the word exhorts Muslims to fulfill the collective requirements of Islam and attach with the community. Lastly, this verse warns believers not to follow Satan. Because Satan is believers’ open enemy, he wants to distract them from the path of Allah, create confusion, and incite hatred and malice among them, so beware of his plots.”

Talking about the women, Maulana Raziulislam Nadvi has clarified that all the speeches of Islam are related to men and women equally, and anyone, whether male or female, is personally responsible for his/her actions before Allah Almighty.

In his inaugural speech, JIH Gujarat President Shakeel Ahmad Rajput shed light on the introduction and activities of the JIH.  Mr.Shakeel said, “Islam provides guidance for all aspects of life, hence the JIH always speaks of complete Islam.”

Speaking on the topic of children’s training, director of renowned Islamic seminary Jametul Falah, Azamgarh, Maulana Tahir Madani has asked parents that it is their responsibility to strengthen Islamic faith, spirituality, intellectual growth, education qualification, good manner and honesty in their kids from childhood. He said that it was also the responsibility of parents to protect them from evil and wrong association. Children should be instilled with the fear and love of Allah just as mobile phones needed antivirus, he added.

Speaking on the unity of the Muslim community, All India Personal Law Board’s member and JIH Maharashtra Vice President Maulana Ilyas Falahi stressed on the need to promote mutual love and tolerance among all.

Speaking on the topic of women’s role in Islamic awareness, JIH Gujarat women’s department secretary Ms. Arefa Parveen said that all the prophets (PBUT), especially, the last one, Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) were fully supported by female companions. She remembered the invaluable contributions of women in raising and training children on Islamic basis.

Noted Muslim figures of Gujarat, Maulana Abdul Qadir Nadvi, former Shaykh Al-Hadith Dar Uloom Nadwat Ulama Lucknow and Maulana Mufti Ahmad Deola, a leader of Tablighi Jamaat also expressed their views. They appreciated the services and activities of Jamaat-E-Islami Hind –

Speaking on the occasion, Mufti Ahmad Devla said, “through this conference, I want to convey today’s message that for success, one must turn back to the Qur’an.”
