It was a unique two-day meet in the name of the greatness of Prophet Mohammed’s Companions at Delhi’s historic Ram Leela Ground. Held on April 10-11, 2010 under the auspices of Markazi Jamiat Ahle Hadees Hind, the oldest organization of Indian Muslims and second oldest organization of the country after the formation of Indian National Congress on December 28, 1885 at Mumbai, the 30th All India Ahle Hadees Conference interestingly passed the 30-point resolution on issues at community, national and international levels, and emphasized upon looking towards the great companions of Prophet Mohammed as a model to the humanity.
Kunwar Shekhar Vijendra, who is also an educational patriarch and hailed from UP’s famous casbah Gangoh, said that the only way to empower the humankind was to get them educated with the concept of ‘totality’. According to him, this was the message that Prophet Mohammed and his companions practiced themselves and spread in the society. He said the first word of the Holy Quran that was revealed was “Iqra”, meaning read, obtain knowledge, and get you educated totally.
He also said that the Prophet’s companions stressed the importance of education. That’s why they as the leaders of the initial Islamic governments declared education compulsory upon both males and females. He said the education that was declared recently compulsory in our country had been declared compulsory by the world’s first coalition government at Madinah, headed by Prophet Mohammed himself and pursued by his companions later on.
He made it clear that this all showed how much stress Islam laid on education. He also averred that the Prophet’s companions came to Malabar (India) during the lifetime of Prophet Mohammed himself and made the spread of education the mission of their lives. He was of the view that’s why that part of India had emerged as the most literate and educated state of the country.
