‘The belief in the finality of prophethood is the foundation of the religion’ - Mufti Qasim Qadiri
On the 7th of September, the movement of the devotees of the Prophet, Dawat-e-Islami, celebrated the Day of Preserving the Finality of Prophethood with great religious fervour. In this regard, first of all, the founder of Dawat-e-Islami, Allamah Maulana Muhammad Ilyas Attar Qadiri دَامَـتْ بَـرَكَـاتُـهُـمُ الْـعَـالِـيَـهْ wrote down some slogans full of Prophetic devotion and filled the hearts of the devotees of the Prophet with love for the Prophet, and then via a video message, he encouraged traders and shopkeepers to offer a 7% discount in their shops with relevance to the 7th of September, the Day of Preserving the Finality of Prophethood. In order to make people aware of the significance of the belief in the finality of Prophethood, an event was held at 10am in Jami’ah-tul-Madinah, Faizan-e-Madinah, Global Madani Markaz, Karachi, in which Ustadh Al-Hadith Maulana Hassaan Attari Madani delivered a special speech on the ‘Belief of the Finality of Prophethood,’ which was broadcasted live on Madani Channel. Numerous students attended this event at Faizan-e-Madinah, and thousands of others attended from their respective Jami’ah-tul-Madinah via Madani Channel.
Alongside this, a special programme by the name of ‘Final Prophet صَلَّى الـلّٰـهُ عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم’ was aired on Madani Channel at 9pm, which was attended by Shaykh-ul-Hadith wat-Tafsir, Mufti Muhammad Qasim Qadiri, Head of the Central Advisory Committee, Maulana Haji Imran Attari, the Spokesperson of Dawat-e-Islami, Maulana Haji Abdul Habib Attari and Maulana Hafiz Ashfaq Attari. Whilst speaking during the programme, Mufti Muhammad Qasim stated, ‘The belief of finality of Prophethood is proven from many verses of the Quran, and the one who rejects this is a disbeliever. The number of hadith in which the Beloved Prophet صَلَّى الـلّٰـهُ عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم himself mentioned that he is the final Prophet exceeds 300.’ He further stated, ‘The belief in the finality of Prophethood is the foundation of the religion. Just as it necessary to believe that he صَلَّى الـلّٰـهُ عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم is a Prophet, it is also necessary to believe that he صَلَّى الـلّٰـهُ عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم is the final Prophet.’
Whilst speaking to the viewers of Madani Channel, Haji Abdul Habib Attari said, ‘It is an important duty of parents that just as they teach their children about the Kalimah, Salah, truth, goodness, evil, etc., they should also inform their children regarding the beliefs in the finality of Prophethood, so that the belief of their children is strengthened and protected.’
