President Minhaj-ul-Quran International (MQI) Dr Hussain Mohi-ud-Din Qadri has said that the teachings of the Sufis impart the lesson of love. He said these teachings should be adopted in life to attain peace both within and without. He said we have ignored the Sufis with little attention paid to their teachings and sayings and it is the reason why we continue to be confused and misguided.
Dr Hussain Mohi-ud-Din Qadri said Qudwat-ul-Awliya’ Sayyiduna Tahir Ala-ud-Din al-Qadri al-Gillani reformed humanity and offered guidance to them in line with the teachings of the Holy Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him). He said the teachings of Sufis are critical to the establishment of the order of peace and human welfare. He said that these teachings are the essence of Islam. He said the worldwide efforts made by Qudwat-ul-Awliya’ Sayyiduna Tahir Ala-ud-Din al-Qadri al-Gillani for the revival of Islam changed the lives of hundreds of thousands of people and made them true servants of Islam. He said the MQI is spreading the light of knowledge and enlightenment in the light of the message and teachings of Sayyiduna Tahir Ala-ud-Din al-Qadri al-Gillani.
