Taking a day’s off from home routine and activities, thousands of women gathered for the sake of Allah at the conference “Ideal Muslim Woman” organized exclusively for the ladies of the city. The conference aimed at enlightening rich Islamic teachings towards woman to understand and fulfill their duties towards Allah. The conference’s main focus, as the theme suggests, revolved on the teachings of the Quran and Sunnah in evolving an Ideal Muslim Woman.

The conference commenced by the recitation of the holy Quran with the translation. The President of the Jamaat e Islami Hind, Shabbir Ahmed began with the inaugural speech, he emphasized on the responsibility of every muslim ummah to establish Islamic way of life and this should be done collectively so that one can face the national and international problems with the guidance of Allah. He informed the people about the policy and all the activities of jamat e Islami hind

The convener of the conference, Sister Fathima Jalal explained the motive of the conference and some guidelines for the day and also informed about the activities of the JIH ladies wing in the city. The audience was enlightened by various topics by eminent speakers. Sister Asma Bi ladies wing organizer of Coimbatore delivered a speech with practical examples on the theme ‘Ideal Muslim Woman,’ she emphasized on the duties of a Muslim woman both individually in a family and in the society. Dr K V S Habib Mohammed, Vice President of Islamic foundation Trust, inspired the audience by his thought provoking speech calling the muslim women, as said in the Quran, ‘O Believers, become helpers of Allah’. In his speech he sketched out clearly the different status and responsibilities of a Muslim as Abdullah one who worships and obeys Allah, Khalifatullah the vicegerent of Allah, Waliullah one who is loved by Allah and Ansarullah helpers of Allah. He said, ‘You must always strive to attain the higher level in deen and also specified freedom is the root cause of all evils, so we cannot take full freedom as Allah’s vicegerent. Today, people treat religion like a shopping kart experience. They read about the religion and pick what they would like to follow and leave what they consider difficult and unlikely to them.”

Writer and Translator, Maulavi Nuh Mahlari’s speech on Hijab was indeed a very informative one and an eye opener. Addressing the most important issue of time, he said, “Like how the eye lid protects the eye, Hijab protects a muslim woman and it is on the basis of her belief which it is a command from Allah, Hijab in islam does not stop only with the dress worn physically but taqwa is the best dress, a woman should not think that she can do anything if she wears Hijab but should be conscious of Allah of whatever she does. and it means Hijab is for one’s eyes, ears, tongue and heart.” Further he quoted real life incidents of woman companions from the Islamic history.

State Organiser of ladies Wing JIH, Sister Ummatul Waheed Fakhira delivered an Urdu speech on the role of Muslim women in the reconstruction of the society. It is the duty of every Muslim woman to implement Islam and give the valuable treasure of Islam to the society. She quoted ‘As a muslim woman we should know who we are what is our purpose of life, our responsibilities, what does my lord want from me and what will be my status in the Hereafter’

    Congratulations to our sisters for conducting the conference in Chennai successfully. All the resolutions are 100% correct and they should be implemented not only in Chennai but also on the National level. Rather it is preferred to be implemented worldwide. I pray Almighty Allah for the betterment of our ladies and safety of our girls both physically and morally.

    Dear Editor,
    When I entered that day in kamarajar Arangam in the morning from Trichy, one Muslim sister welcomed me with a big smile and made me sit comfortably in a chair and walked away. From that moment I felt I was one among them.

    I thought that the full hall will be full of gents and few ladies here and there.
    But full of ladies rarely gents here and there.

    The speeches by Dr. KVS Habeeb mohamed, Maulavi Nuh topics are really appreciable. The highlight of the conference was karuthangam, very causal and impressed by the short speech sister kadija followed by three women talked about the day to day problems facing in every family.(when this portion is going to come in your website. Till Nuh Maulavi speech uploaded . Purposely avoiding not to give credit to the participants or some one particular). I was shocked hearing all those points. Really amazing. Biggest advantage no one in the hall talking among them. Full attention. After a very long time I enjoyed this type of one ladies Programme organised by them for them. Really superb. May be second time I was attending these type of meeting.

    Only one disadvantage no suggestion sheets given to register attentees views.
    These programmes should conduct very often to spread the message of Jamat.
    I could not control myself even after a month, so writing now at least.

    Best wishes to the committee, ladies etc etc.
    Keep up the good work.
