Kumbra: All religions advocate peace, and societal progress thrives when these faiths coexist harmoniously, akin to brothers. Amidst the political strife driven by self-interest and political agendas, which has left countless families in distress, it becomes our duty not to instigate our children to engage in such conflicts. Instead, we should prioritize imparting them with quality education and the opportunity to gain recognition in society. Corruption, religious violence, and substance addiction all necessitate education. Today, the youth are merely obtaining primary education and heading abroad, resulting in a bleak future for the next generation. Emphasizing the importance of quality education and encouraging young generations to excel in society, they visited the KIC in Kumbra, recognizing the institution as a catalyst for building a new, well-educated society.
In a special event organized for UAE team leaders, Ashok Rai Kodimbadi, Member of Legislative Assembly from Puttur Vidhana Sabha constituency, participated in and commended the KIC organization for organizing such an event. During this occasion, KICUAE committee members honored the legislators and expressed their appreciation.
At the commencement of the Grand Milad program organized by the KICUAE committee, a recitation of Mauloodh Parayan, led by Ustad Sirajuddin Faizi Bantwal, took place. This was followed by a captivating Burda recitation by Safwan and his team. In the congregation, Sayyad Askar Ali Talikote offered prayers and extended best wishes for the program.
In his welcome speech, Chairman Jabbar Baitadkar of the KIC committee mentioned that previously, the KICU was limited only to UAE. However, today, the committee has expanded its reach to include Arab countries, and it has given rise to the KICGCC. This has increased our collective responsibility. They appreciated the dignitaries and guests present at the event and acknowledged their commitment to the development of the KIC Academy in Kumbra, which provides valuable and disciplined education. They called upon everyone to join hands and progress in this endeavour. They extended a warm welcome to the honoured guests and dignitaries attending the program.
Subsequently, Hajee Mohiyuddin Dibbaravaru, the Director of KIA Academy, spoke about the life history of Prophet and elaborated on how, without any photographs or sculptures, he remains the singular leader revered by millions of followers worldwide. He emphasized that our Prophet should be known as a messenger of equality, transcending the boundaries of religion. Dibbaravaru inaugurated the program, underscoring these principles.
Isaac Kausari Palottu, who was present at the program, spoke about the KIC organization, its educational initiatives, and the academic environment at the academy. He highlighted the significance of Islamic education in providing knowledge and information.
The keynote speaker, Ustad Hamid Musliyar Neerkaje, emphasized that every event in the Prophet’s life has been meticulously documented in the annals of history. The Prophet is acknowledged for elevating a society from ignorance to enlightenment, from turmoil to tranquillity, and from superstition to reality. It is noted in the Quran that he moulded it into the finest society in the world. Prophet Muhammad was the final prophet of true Islam and during a time when women were marginalized in society, he bestowed upon them a higher status. He encouraged us to live in accordance with his teachings and aspire to heaven.
Bashir Hudavi, in attendance at the event, extended his warm greetings to the gathering and expressed, “The Prophet was an eminent prophet who led a community out of ignorance and darkness into the light of enlightenment, spreading the authentic teachings of Islam. He urged them to adopt his way of life and traditions, encouraging progress.
Ashraf Shah Mantoor, an NRI and the President of KICGCC, who graced the occasion as the chief guest, commended the dedicated efforts of MLA Ashok Kumar Rai. Rai has been tirelessly working to realize the vision of a flourishing Navaputtur. Mantoor sought Rai’s cooperation in ensuring that the government’s benefits reach every individual in society without corruption, aiming to create a new society characterized by mutual brotherhood and unity. Mantoor elucidated the challenges faced by NRIs and appealed to the MLAs to put forth substantial efforts in the future to implement new initiatives for non-residents through the government.
Abdul Khader Baithadka, who chaired the event, provided insights into the life of the Prophet Muhammad. He emphasized that the Quran, centuries ago, already contained the scientific knowledge that is being discovered today. The Prophet was a beacon of liberation for humanity, a remarkable leader who guided human society out of the shadows of ignorance and discrimination, and he was the final prophet for humanity. Every action he took serves as an exemplary model for us, urging us to adopt his way of life and progress.
