True Islam In The 21st Century
On Sunday 24 July, once again the streets of Beeston, Leeds became alive to the colourful and vibrant procession marking the celebrations of the birth of the Prophet Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him). Dr Musharraf from Nottingham delivered the main speech in English where he touched upon many aspects of Islam and Sufism. He emphasised the importance of having a connection with a Shaykh who helps one to achieve self-purification, gaining closeness to Allah, The Most High, and instilling the love of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him) into one’s heart. He remarked that this is in complete opposite to the actions of all those terrorists who are committing atrocities across the world killing anyone and everyone who does not ascribe to their twisted and perverted ideology , which is far removed from the real Islam. Dr Musharraf reminded everyone that as Muslims we condemn them and it is essential that we continue to speak out against them and condemn them at every point so that it illustrates to those terrorists that they are not acting in the name of Islam, in the name of peace loving and law abiding 1 billion Muslims around the globe. It was a wonderful speech that contained many lessons from the lives of the Prophets companions and past Saints which was very eloquently delivered.
