Prime Minister Imran Khan has chaired the opening session of the International Rehmatul-lil-Alameen (SAWW) Conference in connection with Eid Milad-ul-Nabi (SAWW) in Islamabad and said that the personality and character of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) is a role model for the youth to lead a successful life.
I stress on the state of Madina and the life of the Holy Prophet (pbuh) so that people can learn from his life, he said. I spent my youth in Western countries, playing cricket and I know the whole of Pakistan, said the premier. This realisation is one that I’ve come to after living my life, he said.
When I was younger, my father used to force me to go to the mosque for Friday prayers and I only went because I respected him, he said. I also went on Eid but inside, inside I had no faith, said the prime minister. This journey of mine to faith has come about because I have lived my life, he said, calling it a long journey that is still ongoing.
Faith is like an ocean, he said. “The deeper into it you go, the move layers you uncover and the more you learn, you realise that you know very little at all.”
Khan reiterated his commitment to introduce the golden rules of Riasat-e-Madina
The premier said that Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) emphasized on education, justice and merit, adding that by following the Prophets’ (PBUH) teachings we can bring progressive change in the society.
The Prime Minister said our government will bring reforms in the education system to teach children how the Holy Prophet (PBUH) transformed a tribal society into a great nation. He underscored the importance of holding research in our universities on the life and the principles of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH).
He urged the ulema to help the government and promote the Holy Prophet’s (pbuh) life and guide them.
