LAHORE: (Monday, September 25, 2023): Punjab University Vice Chancellor Prof Dr Khalid Mahmood has said that without following the teachings of the Prophet (PBUH), it is not possible to create a civilized society. He expressed these views while addressing a seminar organized by Punjab University Library in collaboration with the Punjab University Librarians Organization (PULO) here on Monday. On this occasion, renowned religious scholar Dr Hafiz Sarfraz Ahmad Khan, Dean Faculty of Islamic Studies Prof Dr Hammad Lakhvi, Dean Faculty of Oriental Learning Prof Dr Ghulam Moeen-ud-Din Nizami, Chief Librarian Dr Muhammad Haroon Usmani, President PULO Saif-ur-Rehman Atique, faculty members, Librarians and a large number of students were present. In his address, Dr Khalid Mahmood said that to get out of the crisis situation, everyone including the Ulemas will have to act wisely. He said that the real purpose of a Muslim's life cannot be fulfilled by emotional slogans, but the adoption of the Prophet's (PBUH) life is essential. He said that the Prophet (PBUH) discussed every aspect of life including economy, society and the purpose of such gatherings is to learn these lessons.

Dr Hafiz Sarfraz Ahmad Khan said that no one can change the decisions of Allah Ta'ala and Hazrat Muhammad (PBUH). He said that our faith is not complete without believing in Hazrat Muhammad (PBUH), who is Khatam-ul-Nabien. He said that in the light of the teachings of the Holy Prophet (PBUH), we should individually and collectively try to eliminate oppression from the society and establish a system of justice. He said that it is more important for us to know about the Holy Prophet (PBUH) than to know ourselves. Dr Hammad Lakhvi said that all of us are always in a state of examination in which the only way to succeed is to follow the Holy Prophet's (PBUH) way of life. He said that no work is important than the teachings of the Holy Prophet (PBUH). Prof Dr Ghulam Moeen-ud-Din Nizami said that discussing the biography of the Holy Prophet (PBUH) is the most important need of the time. He said that the original status of mosques and libraries should be restored to give rise to Islamic civilization and culture. He said that libraries play the role of mind for the formation of nations. Dr Muhammad Haroon Usmani said that the PU Library will continue to play its dynamic role as a center of knowledge and literature and a community center. He said that the study of the biography of the Holy Prophet (PBUH) is important in every era, but today it is more needed on scientific grounds. Saif-ur-Rehman Atique thanked the VC and other guests for their support and participation in the event. Earlier, PU VC Dr Khalid Mahmood inaugurated the exhibition of books on the biography of the Holy Prophet (PBUH).
