Jummat-ul-vida holds significant importance for Muslims, marked by special prayers and supplications as Ramadan draws to a close. Offering prayers at Jama Masjid on this last Friday of Ramadan carries immense spiritual rewards

Thousands thronged to the holy shrine Aasar-e-Shareef Makhama in Budgam district where the chief patron of Karwani Islami International Allama Shaykh Dr Gulam Rasool Hami addressed the gathering.

Hami highlighted the virtues of Jumatul-Vida and the way out of the existing crises of different kinds in society.

Hami said that people must get to know the provisions and teachings of the Quran and the Sunnah of Prophet Muhammad(PBUH). This will go a long way in addressing the social issues in our society such as drug menace, communal strife, misogyny, and misuse of Social media platforms.

Hami held that the month of Ramadan provides a nice opportunity for Muslims to rectify themselves, repent, and get closer to Allah. He insisted that people illuminate themselves and their children with the guidance of the Quran and Sunnah so that they get to know the true meaning of Tawheed, ‘Risalat’, and responsibilities towards fellow beings.

  Dr Hami also delved into the plight of poor and needy people and called on people to give all required aid and charities to such people, so that they can also have a meaningful social life. Hami said that for more than two decades, his organization Karwani Islami has engaged in the upliftment of scores of the poor and needy.
