MALAPPURAM: More than 500,000 Muslims gathered in this Kerala town to take the pledge against terrorism and pray for peace on the Laylat Al Qadr, the holiest night in the month of Ramadan, overnight on Thursday.

Billed as the largest annual gathering of Muslims in India and one of the largest outside the holy places of Makkah and Madina, the prayer meet ended gracefully at Swalath Nagar here with believers staying up late into the holy night.


Organisers said going by the count of food packets distributed, the total number of devotees attended the prayer meet could touch 600,000.

The holy night of boundless blessings is believed to fall on the eve of 27th day of Ramadan and is considered greater than a thousand nights in sanctity and rewards from Allah.

They stayed awake throughout the night chanting prayers for peace and forgiveness and took the oath to “eradicate the menace of terrorism and work for world peace” in the wee hours just before the morning prayers.

The focus of the congregation last year was also world peace and religious extremism as Khaleel Bukhari made a fervent appeal for showing “mercy to your fellow beings; then, God will be merciful to you” and “an extremism of love and not hatred and terror is what we needed.”

The prayers reach a crescendo when the crowds swing in spiritual ecstasy, chanting “there is no God but Allah” a thousand times and seeking forgiveness from the Almighty with hands raised towards the heaven and tears swelling in their eyes.

The local authorities and police, as well as the Hindu families in the areas, lent their active support for the uninterrupted conduct of prayers and speeches.

Traffic along the NH 213 between Malappuram and Valluvamburam was diverted and a strong police force was posted along the way as believers who came from different parts of the country literally thronged the Ma’dinu campus where the meet was held.

The organisers had a tough time preparing for their prayers and arranging food for them.

The prayer congregation led by distinguished leaders lasted till 3 am.

Lack of faith is the cause of all problems, says Kanthapuram

MALAPPURAM: People’s indifference to righteousness and lack of faith in God are the reasons for the world’s problems, said Kanthapuram A.P. Aboobacker Musliar, general secretary of the All India Jamiyyathul Ulama. He was inaugurating a prayer gathering at Swalat Nagar, near here, on Wednesday evening.

He said that the light of virtue would be visible to the humanity only when people purge their minds of bad thoughts. By asking people to fast in Ramzan, Islam attempts to achieve this goal, he said.

Kanthapuram called upon the people to embrace tolerance as a basic tenet for virtuous life. Quoting the Koran, he said that if anyone took the life of another without justice, it was equivalent to taking the lives of the entire humanity. “This is the best message of tolerance,” he said.

Delivering the keynote address, Sayed Ibrahim Khaleel Bukhari, chairman of the Ma’dinu Ssaquafathil Islamiyya, called upon the people to return to the fundamentals of respecting the elders.

“Without respecting and loving your parents, teachers and elders, you can never aspire to win in this life and the next,” he said. He said Ramzan was giving the message to eradicate evil qualities like enmity, envy, and greed.

“Love should replace those qualities,” he said. He called upon the people to show mercy to fellow beings. “Only then God will show His mercy on you,” he said. THE HINDU 17/09/2009

National forum of Sunnis mooted

6 May


KOCHI: In an initiative to mobilise Muslims at the national-level, the All-India Sunni Jame- yathul Uelma will form a national forum of all Sunni organisations in the country.

Announcing the policy of Sunni Muslims at the National Islamic Conference held here, Kanthapuram A P Aboobackar Musaliyar, general secretary, All- India Sunni Jam-e-yathul Ulema, said that the activities of the SYS need to be widened at the national-level.

Other major decisions taken at the conference included organising a nationwide campaign to popularise Kerala’s experience in the areas of Dawa and education and a national-level meet of leaders of various organisations in Delhi in July this year. It has also been decided to impart training for people to organise national-level campaigns and to organise debates in various cities based on the framework adopted by the National Islamic Conference.

A sub-committee with A K Abdul Hameed as chairman and Hassainar Nadvi from Andaman as convener and Sufi Abdul Kadir Sahi from Andhra Pradesh, Mowlana Saleem Siraji from Tamil Nadu, Kuthubudheen Mapari from Maharashtra, Faisanul Musthafa from UP, Mowlana Afsal Misbahi from Delhi and A P Abdul Hakeem from Kerala as members has also been constituted to look into the preliminary activities.

Earlier, in a resolution passed at the seminar organised as part of the conference, it was stated that Muslim political parties in the country are facing serious crisis. “The recent trends in the elections prove that their policies and programmes are rejected by Muslims,” it said.

The three-day conference discussed the plight of Muslims in the country and their socio-cultural and political aspirations. More than 10,000 delegates from dif ferent parts of the country participated in the conference that concluded on Sunday. ENS 04/05/2009

Muslims a neglected lot, says Baby

KOCHI: Over 10,000 delegates including 500 foreign delegates are attending the three-day National Islamic Conference, which began at Malikudhenar Nagar here on Friday.

The conference discussed the issues related to Muslim politics and culture in contemporary India. It would also frame a blueprint aiming at unification of various Muslim organisations of the country.

Tamil Nadu Chief Qazi Salahudeen Muhammed Ayyobi, who inaugurated the conference organised by the Sunni Yuvajana Sangam (SYS), highlighted the need for creative exchange of ideas between religion and sense of citizenship.

He said the country’s integrity and identity were facing danger and it would be protected only if the moral values, which had been of late deteriorating, were preserved.

Earlier, addressing the conference, Education Minister M A Baby said the Muslim community had been neglected in the education and employment sector.

“The Muslim community has a prominent role in safeguarding the principles of democracy. Depriving the Muslim community of opportunities will weaken the democratic system of the country,” he added.

Various religious heads including All India Sunni Jam-e-yyathul Ulama general secretary Kanthapuram A P Aboobacker Musliyar attended the conference. ENS 03/05/2009

MALAPPURAM: Sunni leader and chairman of the Madinu Ssaquafathil Islamiyya Sayed Ibrahim Khaleel Bukhari has called upon the Sunnis to exercise their franchise in a befitting manner.

Addressing a mammoth gathering of people on the final day of the year-long Encomium celebrations at Swalat Nagar near here on Sunday evening, Mr. Bukhari exhorted the Sunnis to make use of the most potent weapon in their hands in the April 16 elections.

Without mentioning any political party, Mr. Bukhari said the Sunnis knew who to vote for. The Sunnis are politically conscious and have strong politics, he said.

The Sunni leader called upon the people not to waste the opportunity to register their protest against the oppressors through the ballot. Everyone should inevitably poll their vote, he said.

Mr. Bukhari’s call, ahead of a keenly awaited speech by Sunni leader Kanthapuram A.P. Aboobacker Musliar late in the evening, was received with loud cheers by the crowds.

Thousands of people had gathered at Swalat Nagar to witness the valedictory session of Encomium celebrations, in which delegates from several Muslim countries took part. Kanthapuram Aboobacker Musliar, general secretary of the All India Jamiyyathul Ulama, was the chief guest at the function.

Mr. Bukhari’s call to the Sunnis on the eve of the Parliament elections was viewed by political observers as a clear exhortation to requite what they got from the parties, especially the Indian Union Muslim League (IUML). The IUML, when in power in the State, had harassed the Sunni faction led by Kanthapuram Aboobacker Musliar. Meanwhile, the IUML continued desperate attempts to woo the AP Sunni faction as the former faced a stiff challenge in the constituencies of Ponnani and Malappuram.

KPCC president Ramesh Chennithala visited Mr. Bukhari at his Madin office here on Sunday morning requesting his faction’s help in the elections. IUML State general secretary P.K. Kunhalikutty too spoke with Mr. Bukhari pleading for help.
