In commemoration of the Life of our beloved Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him and his progeny), a special series of Golden Jubilee events, under the theme “Legacy of our Prophet: Inspirations for Today” will take place across Canada throughout the month of April.
This initiative will include DVD presentations and readings, with the highlight being the Milad-un-Nabi program. This special commemoration event will be addressed by a renowned keynote speaker, who will discuss a contemporary issue facing the Ummah, with lessons drawn from the life of our Prophet (Peace be upon him and his progeny).
You are invited to this special Milad-un-Nabi commemoration event, which occurs during the Golden Jubilee year of His Highness the Aga Khan.
“The Holy Prophet’s life gives us every fundamental guideline that we require to resolve the problem as successfully as our human minds and intellects can visualise. His example of integrity, loyalty, honesty, generosity both of means and of time, his solicitude for the poor, the weak and the sick, his steadfastness in friendship, his humility in success, his magnanimity in victory, his simplicity, his wisdom in conceiving new solutions for problems which could not be solved by traditional methods, without affecting the fundamental concepts of Islam, surely all these are foundations which, correctly understood and sincerely interpreted, must enable us to conceive what should be a truly modern and dynamic Islamic Society in the years ahead.”
Extract from the Presidential Address by His Highness the Aga Khan at the International Seerat Conference, Karachi, Pakistan, 12 March 1976
