The birthday of Holy Prophet (PBUH) & Imam Jaffer Sadiq (a.s.) was commemorated at Dar al-Zahra. Addressed by Sheikh Amin Rastani, the program started with recitation of Holy Quran & Manqabat.
Emphasizing on the importance of "Week of unity among Shias and Sunnis", Sheikh stated that such events play a vital role in bringing the Muslims closer to each other
Addressing students in the audience, Sheikh Amin Rastani said that one should do tableegh (propagation) of Islam with complete sincerity which can be gained through practicing Wajibaat and Forbidding Moharramaat.
Sheikh Amin Rastani narrated a story of an Iranian student which was quoted by Ayatollah Javedan. The student went to do tableegh in the Sistan and Balochistan province of Iran. One day he was held and forcefully brought 150kms inside Pakistan’s territory by a group of goons. He was held with other individuals in the same situation, where prisoners were decapitated on daily basis in front of him. The question was, how did the goons have the courage to behead a person every day? To muster the courage to commit such a crime, these people used to watch a video of a mimber who was abusing sanctities of other sects while people were clapping and laughing. In this way they were getting angry and got the courage to decapitate individuals. Ayatollah Javedan said that people who abuse the sanctities of other sects are partners in the killing of momineens.
The program ended with Ziaarat followed by Dinner.
