Members have to make the highest sacrifice for the sake of Islam and humanity, says Dr. Shafiqur Rahman

Bangladesh Jamaat-e-Islami’s Ameer Dr. Shafiqur Rahman has said, we have to be inspired and motivated by the stories of Prophet Ibrahim (May Allah bless him). We know his story about experiencing the enormous fire. As per the instructions of Almighty Allah, the fire turned into something cool. Prophet Ibrahim (A) attained all his achievements which justifies his title as `Khalilullah or the Friends of Allah.” Later, Prophet Ibrahim (A) was also assigned to sacrifice his son. When Prophet Ibrahim (A) notified his son Ismail (A) about Allah’s instructions, he was very happy with that and motivated his father to comply with Allah’s order. We are also dreaming to see the victory of Islam along with beliefs and faiths. As such, Jamaat members should have the mentality to pass the examinations of sacrifice for the sake of Islam and humanity.

He said this while addressing the members’ workshop as the chief guest organized by Bangladesh Jamaat-e-Islami Dhaka city South on Friday. Jamaat’s central executive committee member ad Dhaka city South Ameer Nurul Islam Bulbul presided over the workshop. While Jamaat’s Acting Secretary General Maulana ATM Masum, Assistant Secretary General and former MP Hamidur Rahman Azad, Maulana Abdul Halim, and central executive committee member Advocate Matiur Rahman Akanda addressed the program as special guests. Jamaat’s central working committee member and Dhaka city South Secretary Dr. Shafiqul Islam Masud hosted the event. Among others, central working committee member and Dhaka city South’s Nayeb-e-Ameer Manjurul Islam Bhuiyan addressed the workshop. Jamaat Dhaka city South Assistant Secretary Advocate Dr. Helal Uddin and Md. Delwar Hossain and other leaders were present on the occasion.

Dr. Shafiqur Rahman said we are dedicated to serving Allah as a member of oath. We will strive our efforts by building ourselves in order to build this nation and country. We do consider our opponent as our fellow brothers and sisters. We will continue our prayer for them seeking their guidance. We will try to attain the satisfaction of Allah by engaging more in worship. We will remain alert to refrain from the instigation of Satan. We will remain active to conduct the proper job in all aspects to meet the necessities of the organization.

Maulana ATM Masum said, as a member, we will make effort to follow the path, which has been directed by the Prophet (peace & blessings be upon Him) and his companions. Only then we can achieve his mercy. Our real success will be ensured if Almighty Allah becomes pleased with us.

Hamidur Rahman Azad said, Allah has made the activities of Iqamat-e-Deen obligatory. So, we have to play our roles accordingly. Ignoring all adversities, we have to remain active in social welfare activities for the satisfaction of Allah. Jamaat activist means social activist. So, we have to make ourselves involved with social activities. We have to come forward during the bad times of the people.

Matiur Rahman Akanda said, our youth is being misguided due to neo-ignorance elements. The government has issued licenses for consuming alcohol to destroy our youths. Jamaat members have to play a strict role against these misdeeds and also have to make general masses involved.

Nurul Islam Bulbul said, we have to utilize our times in a planned way as a member of oaths. To meet the demand of the moment, we have to enrich with the knowledge of IT and also to upgrade our management quality. We have to engage ourselves in various capacity-building programs, declared by the organization. We have to turn ourselves into human resources so that we can change the ongoing unhealthy phases of the world. He urged everybody to play a balanced role against all confusion on the way to establishing an Islamic welfare state.

Monjurul Islam Bhuiyan puts emphasis on nurturing the Islamic spirit in our families. He said, if the family remains balanced, overall movement may be strengthened more. In our family programs and while getting married, we should prefer religious notions. If we can do that, then we individually will be benefited. Simultaneously, our families and organization will achieve success as well.

Dr. Shafiqul Islam Masud said, we have to proceed with this organization with sincerity. Almighty Allah’s help is nearer. We have to be optimistic and positive about receiving Allah’s mercy and help.
