The Financial Daily - - NATIONAL -

ISLAMABAD: Al­lama Iqbal Open Univer­sity (AIOU) will launch BS and M.Phil-level de­gree pro­grams to pro­mote spe­cial­iza­tion on 'Seerat-un-Nabi' from next year.

The pro­grams have al­ready been ap­proved by the Univer­sity's statu­tory bod­ies, this was an­nounced at a sem­i­nar held here on 'Seerat-un-Nabi', held here.

The sem­i­nar was ar­ranged to high­light the mes­sage of 'Seerat-un-Nabi' for devel­op­ment of a so­cially wellinte­grated so­ci­ety. It was presided over by the Vice Chan­cel­lor Prof. Dr. Zia-UlQayyum.

Chair­man Coun­cil of Is­lamic Ide­ol­ogy Dr. Qi­bla Ayaz was the key-note speaker on the oc­ca­sion, who un­der­lined the need of fol­low­ing the foot­prints of 'Seerat-un-Nabi' for devel­op­ment of a pros­per­ous and peace­ful so­ci­ety.

The event was jointly ar­ranged by the Univer­sity's Depart­ments of Seerat Stud­ies and Urdu.

A ' Me­file-Naat' was also or­ga­nized on the oc­ca­sion that was par­tic­i­pated by prom­i­nent po­ets in­clud­ing Iftikhar Arif. The speak­ers while ad­dress­ing the sem­i­nar as­serted that the life and teach­ings of Hazrat Muham­mad (PBUH) is the best role-model for bring­ing hap­pi­ness in the so­cial struc­ture.

The present's days so­cioe­co­nomic prob­lems could only be ad­dressed by ad­her­ing to Seerat-un-Nabi. In this con­nec­tion, they said the role of ed­u­ca­tional in­sti­tu­tions and par­ents are highly im­por­tant.

The Vice Chan­cel­lor in his pres­i­den­tial ad­dress said the mes­sage of Hazrat Muham­mad (PBUH) is ever-last­ing for the well- be­ing of the en­tire hu­man­ity. He viewed that nu­mer­ous prob­lems, the peo­ple fac­ing to­day are the re­sult of ig­nor­ing the teach­ings of the Holy Prophet.

Neg­a­tive, ag­gres­sive and ex­trem­ist at­ti­tude are the main hur­dles in pro­mot­ing a well-in­te­grated life. For re­for­ma­tion of so­ci­ety, ev­ery in­di­vid­ual needed to serve the so­ci­ety in a best pos­si­ble way. We have to re­turn what the coun­try has given us. Prin­ci­ple of self-ac­count­abil­ity should be adopted for bet­ter re­sults, he added.

Dr. Qi­bla Ayaz in his thought-pro­vok­ing speech urged the youth to fol­low the foot­prints of Hazrat Muham­mad (PBUH) for re­viv­ing their past glory. He said 'Walk­ing with Prophet in a prac­ti­cal life is the need of the hour' for seek­ing ul­ti­mate so­lu­tion of the cur­rent so­cio-eco­nomic is­sues.-NNI
