Addressing the grand Jalsa at Kennedy Hall, Maulana Mufti Salman Mansoorpuri, an eminent Muslim scholar from Moradabad, said that when cruelty and violence were at their peak, Prophet Muhammad came as a blessing and tried to mould everyone in the structure of Humanity. He said that if we adopt Prophet Muhammad’s teachings in all the walks of our life, we will achieve success in life as well as after-life. He further added that Islam, from its very foundation, has been the religion of Love & Peace, and it teaches its followers not to indulge in evil behavior as it gives rise to another evil behavior.

Hazrat Maulana Israrul Haq Qasmi, another religious figure from Kishanganj, said that Prophet Muhammad gave everyone the message of humanity, brotherhood, philanthropy and peace. He said that the time demands the collective efforts of intellectuals and religious tutors, to make the society more and more better. Maulana Naeem Abbas, from Amroha, said that a complete humane society can be achieved only when one walks on the path suggested by the Prophet, and if everyone follows the religious teachings, no one will be afraid of the other.

Maulana Kalbe Jawwad, from Lucknow, said that there is a myth about Islam that it is being spread forcefully, but the fact is that the history itself confesses that Islam is actually a religion of Love and Peace. He said that the Prophet himself treated his enemies with love, and every component of Islam teaches its followers to have mercy on women, children, old, poor and needy.
