India: MYL takes part in in educational & welfare activities on Milad-un-Nabi

by Minhaj

To highlight the merciful and compassionate nature of teachings of our Beloved
Prophet (peace be upon him), Minhaj Youth League India volunteers participated in
various educational and welfare activities across India on the occasion of birth
anniversary of the beloved Prophet (peace be upon him). A summary of the events
done so far is being given below.


In a Quranic verse, Almighty Allah clearly tells mankind that Prophet Muhammad
(peace be upon him) was sent as a model for mankind to follow and the success in
this life and the hereafter depends on following him.

In truth, in (the sacred person of) Allah’s Messenger (blessings and peace be
upon him) there is for you a most perfect and beautiful model (of life) for every
such person that expects and aspires to (meeting) Allah and the Last Day and remembers
Allah abundantly. (Surah Al-Ahzab Chapter 33, Verse 21)

The verse demands that Muslims should take the Holy Prophet’s (peace be upon
him) life as a model for themselves in every affair of life and should mould their
character and personality according to it.

To increase awareness about life, teachings, family and companions of Prophet
Muhammad (peace be upon him), the quiz competitions were organized for students
and prizes were given to top performers.

age but Allah will appoint for him one who will respect him during his old age.”

Clothing the poor is a sunnah of our Beloved Prophet (peace be upon him).

Hadrat Bilal (Radiyallahu Anhu) was asked, “How did the Messenger of God spend
his money?”

He said, “Whenever he had anything, I was the one to whom it was entrusted –from
the time he was raised up by God until he departed this world-. He was such that,
if an individual came to him, submissively, and he saw that he was lacking clothing,
he would give me the command, and I would borrow money with which to purchase a
cloak and clothe him in it, and feed him…”

Wa Al-Fai’), chapter on ‘The Ruler accepts the gifts of Polytheists’), vol. 3, p.
