1-3 March, 2014

Islamic Fiqh Academy India organised a seminar at the Jamia Uloom ul Quran in Jambosar, Gujarat during 1-3 March, 2014. The 3 day seminar saw the participation of about 300 scholars on four important topics. Eminent personalities from different parts of India like Maulana Syed Rabe Hassani, IFA Patron Maulana Muhammad Salim Qasmi, Amir e Shariyat (Karnataka) Mufti Ashraf Ali Baqvi, Mufti Ahmad Khanpuri, Mufti Sadiq Mohiuddin from Hyderabad, Gujarati scholar Mufti Abdullah Kapodarvi, IFA President Maulana Nematullah Azmi and IFA General Secretary Maulana Khalid Saifullah Rehmani attended the 3 day seminar to deliver lectures.

In the inaugural session, IFA President Maulana Nematullah chaired the session and General Secretary Maulana Khalid Rehmani presented the keynote address while Mufti Ahmad Dehlvi – principal of the madrassa – presented welcome address. Mufti Abdullah Kapodarvi and Maulana Salim Qasmi also spoke in this session.

“I got a chance to travel to a Christian dominated country recently. I was disappointed to see Ulemas deliberating upon and writing on trivial issues like the design of the skullcap. They were also engaging in a discourse on the appearance of the Kurta and its linings, sewings, etc. It is to be considered whether such topics are worthy of the interest and skills of an Ulema. An important point to be noted is that an Ulema needs to develop moderation (tawazun) because excess in words sometimes leads to downfall of communities. This tendency has been on a rise among ulemas for the past two decades.

In diasgreements also, limits/decorum have to be maintained. “ (Excerpt from the Keynote Address)
After the inaugural session, three important sessions on various issues were held in the madrassa premises. First topic was citizenship and asylum; second session deliberated on Miraas and Wasiyat; Haibah was the central point of the third session and Istisna issue was taken up for discussion in the fourth session. A printed summary of the papers was distributed among the participants and some important papers by a few Arab scholars were distributed among the Ulemas.
A brief summarised paper was also presented to explain the related arguments and opinions of scholars on each issue. In the last session, committees were formulated to prepare the resolutions which later submitted their papers on these subjects to the General Secretary to finalise the resolutions. A committee of senior Ulemas discussed all the opinions in a special meeting and presented a draft of the resolutions.
In the final session, the resolutions were presented before the audience for approval. Chairman of the session IFA patron Rabe Hassani expressed his views in the light of Quran and Sunnah and prayed for the success of all these religious efforts to guide the Muslim minority with full wisdom after approval of all these resolutions.
Delegates from USA, UK, South Africa, Mauritius, Bangladesh, Nepal and Afghanistan also participated at the event.
