LAHORE - The first four-day session of International Tableeghi Ijtema of Raiwind concluded here Sunday following a spirited address by Ameer Tableeghi Jamaat Maulana Abdul Wahab and dua led by Maulana Zubair ul Hassan. The 82-year-old Maulana Abdul Wahab said that the human being came to this universe through mother's womb and would end up in the grave but unfortunately the human beings have no concern with the life hereinafter. He said the success lies in propagation of Islam (dawa'at and tableegh) and it is not possible without hard work and sacrifice. The Ummah is suffering because of its deviation from its primary duties. The Ummah can get rid of hardships if they enforce Islam on them and work for the supremacy of 'Deen', the practices of religion of Islam. He said the other reason of our degradation is scant attention to five times prayers in a day. The Ummah has forgotten the fruit of goodness and piety. Maulana Abdul Wahab said that the human beings can shape their personality through pious practices and religions canons. The teaching and propagation of religion and prayers at night is the practice dear to Allah. In the concluding dua, Maulana Zubair ul Hassan asked for reciting Darood. He prayed to Allah for forgiveness on their sins. He also prayed to Allah to enable them to lead their lives according to the teachings of Islam. The participants renewed their pledge to strive for the propagation of Islamic values world over. The Ulema also emphasised upon the participants to take the message of Allah Almighty and the holy prophet Harzat Muhammad (PBUH) in every nook and corner of the world. The strength of people, who started thronging to the Pindal (tented place) since Thursday last, touched the figure around one million on the last day. PML-N Chief Mian Nawaz Sharif, Punjab Chief Minister Mian Shahbaz Sharif, several federal ministers and religious leaders also attended the congregation. Since last year, the total 18 constituencies of the Tableeghi Jamaat in Pakistan have been divided into two equal portions for the convenience of the participants. On the first leg of the annual congregation this week, the faithful from nine constituencies i.e. from upper NWFP and Punjab as well as from abroad ensured their participation. As soon the Ijtema concluded, all the routes leading to Raiwind were sealed, owing to huge traffic outflow from Raiwind to Lahore and other cities. The Annual Tableeghi Ijtema at Raiwind is considered as the biggest Muslim congregation after that of the Haj. The faithful from more than 200 countries of the world also participate in the annual congregations at Raiwind. The concluding statement and the prayers were released in many languages. It concluded at 1.15 pm after which thousands of tableeghi jamaats proceeded to different destinations. In tents, fire broke out for three times due to unknown reasons but the fire brigade controlled it. However, no one was injured. The next phase of the annual Ijtema will commence from October 16, 2008, which is also expected to attract the same number of faithful from lower NWFP, Sindh and Balochistan.
