Gateway to Divine Mercy 2007 - Enlightening our Hearts
Gateway to Divine Mercy 2007
The second Gateway to Divine Mercy Conference held in Manchester (UK) on Sunday 1st July 2007 which saw hundreds of brothers and sisters turn out to hear great words of wisdom from revered scholars such as Shaykh Muhammad al-Yaqoubi (Syria) and the Imam and Khatib of the third holiest Masjid, al-Masjid al-Aqsa, Shaykh Yusuf ‘Abd al-Wahhab ibn Mahmud Abu Sneina.
If you attended this event or know someone who did then please feel free to add your comments of your experiences.
Long live Hazrat Qibla Pirzada Sahib and all his dedicated team. Well done al-karam scholars.
P.S: i really enjoyed myself and learned a great deal from it.
Allahamdillah, it was the best event I have been to in my life. The scholars, the manner they entertained the brothers and sisters through quoting of the Qur'an, Hadiths and Sunnah at the same time having a humorous manner of discourse, it is true that Islam was never created to cause harships but rather the opposite. May Allah swt shower the scholars and all those that had attended mercy and blessings upon them ameen sumameen.
I want everyone to attend the next years event as inshAllah it’ll be the one to remember as every event holds a special feeling of joy as did this years.
I was very happy to have finally met Shaykh Imdad Prizada, Shaykh Ahmed Teji and Shaykh Yaqoobi and other enlightening scholars. As always, I am happy with the hard work Junaid Pirzada and his brother Bakthiyar Pirzada have put into the instigation of such an event, may Allah swt give them rewards for that and may they carry one doing such fabulous work ameen sumameen.
I left the event with the following thought and I am sure so did a lot of brothers and sisters: "As Muslims, we are a religion of sufferers, as we should not try to plan for the time ahead as our knowledge is limited to what we only know. We should pray for peace and harmony in our lives and that of our brothers and sisters. We should protect ourselves from the acts of the shaytaan and from those of abysmal people. We should live by the perfect paradigm that was sent to us from beyond the heavens as a mercy not only for the Muslims but non-Muslims also. Just remember:
'Our fortunes do not lie over the green grass of this world but rather beyond the blue skies of this dhuniyah.' May Allah swt give us all strength to do what is right and may we always speak the truth and make our Imaan reach a new level to what the Prophet Muhammad PBUH SAW would be happy with and in calling us His PBUH SAW brothers and sisters ameen sumameen."
I pray that Allah (SWT) will fulfil the ambitions of Sheikh Pirzada Sahib in nurturing the next generation of muslim scholars to carry the divine message of Islam
What a great event. I missed it last year but i have to say Masha'Allah this has been one of the best events I have attended. I eagerly await for 29th June 2008 Insha'Allah.
I must say that most respected Shaykh Amin al-Hasanat had a illuminating face and enlightened the whole event especially with the beautiful zikr at the end.
Masha'Allah all the Shayukhs did truely enlighten our hearts. May Allah shower His mercy upon them and their families. Ameen. May Allah keep us in guidance of such blessed people. Ameen
As I have learnt from my respected teacher Abu Awais Imam Muhammad Zahoor Chishti “life is not based on the genetic organization of the DNA and RNA, but the true meaning of life is to seek closeness to Allah Almighty and His Rasool (salalahu alaiy hi wasalaam)”. May Allah grant my respected teacher barakah and rehmat in this life and in the hereafter. Ameen
Last but not least many Congrats to most respected Shaykh Muhammad Imdad Hussain Pirzada for the success of this event and all those who had a part in the organization.
May Allah bring success to the next event. AMEEN
May Allah reward all of you! It was a brilliant experience. Shaykh pirzada’s speech had a lot of wisdom in it - i regret not taking my pen and notebook - the 4 points that shaykh pirzada mentioned are very relevant and important for muslims to understand especially those muslims living in the west. Shaykh yaqubi + imam of masjid al-aqsa were amazing. Shaykh ahmed tijani was very funny but also touched our hearts! I cant wait to come again next year.
Masha'Allah what a beutiful event. May Allah shower His blessings on each and everyone who has put together such a beautiful event. May Allah give us the blessed moment that was experienced on sunday again next year inshaAllah with a group of blessed speakers.Ameen.
Alhamdolillah we were all kept enlightened from start to finish. There were some brothers who haven't experienced Islamic events much but after attending this spectacular event Alhamdolillah they have started to become strong practising lovers of the Beloved (SalAllaho Alaih Wasalam).
Pirzada Sahibs speech was absolutely amazing,
Shaykh Omar Tijani was entertaining,
Imam Abu Sneina was uplifting, Shaykh
Ahmed Thompson was spiritual,
Shaykh Al Yaqoubi strengthened our Imaan,
Shaykh Allama Misbahi was informative, Allama Zahoor Chishti was brilliant
Shaam were Lively, and
the Langar Shareef was absolutely delicious.
As close to perfect mixture as can be. The standards have been raised for next year.
Jamia-Al-Karam Zindabad! :)
What a great event and amalgam of beauty, we were blessed to be in the presence of great Shaykhs, Imams, Teachers and Students. I really enjoyed the event and look forward to 2008. May Allah preserve Shaykh Pirzada's life and help him and his helpers in their mission. It is a real honour to meet remarkable men and to know we did so in our lifetimes. Thank you once again for enlightening our hearts.
May the blessings of Allah be upon you all.
