Rutherglen Reformer - - Special Feature -

The Min­haj ul Qu­ran cen­tre in Ruther­glen opened in 2009.

The cen­tre is part of Min­hajul-Qu­ran In­ter­na­tional, an or­gan­i­sa­tion based in Lon­don with a fo­cus on ed­u­ca­tion, wel­fare and hu­man rights work.

They have bases all over the world, nine in the UK alone.

It was started by Shaykh-ulIs­lam Dr Muham­mad Tahir-ulQadri in 1981in Pak­istan.

Ac­cord­ing to the group’s web­site, their aim is to “pro­mote peace, tol­er­ance, in­ter­faith har­mony and ed­u­ca­tion, tackle ex­trem­ism and ter­ror­ism, en­gage with young Mus­lims for re­li­gious mod­er­a­tion, pro­mote women’s rights, devel­op­ment and em­pow­er­ment, and pro­vide so­cial wel­fare and pro­mo­tion of hu­man rights.”

Shaykh-ul-Is­lam Dr Muham­mad Tahir-ul-Qadri said:“The pri­mary aim is to bring about a com­pre­hen­sive and mul­ti­di­men­sional change in the so­ci­ety which at the same time ends the aca­demic and ide­o­log­i­cal dead­lock and re­vive, once again, the ex­ter­mi­nated moral and spir­i­tual val­ues (of Is­lam), and also ex­alt the Mus­lim Umma to an ad­mirable and re­spect­ful sta­tus among the comity of na­tions by a con­tin­u­ous strug­gle based on glo­ri­ous foun­da­tion laid down by the Holy Prophet (bless­ings and peace be upon him) on the uni­ver­sal prin­ci­pals of love, peace and knowl­edge.”
