While addressing the international Mashaikh and Ulema conference under the aegis of Auqaf department on Monday in connection with Ashra Shan-e-Rehmatul-Lil-Alameen, the CM said love for Ulema and Mashaikh has been a social tradition and it is commendable that the Ulema and Sufi Saints have always rendered yeoman service for the religion of Islam.
It is sanguine that they have played their role for the collective good in the country. Meanwhile, the purpose of celebrating Ashra Shan-e-Rehmatul-Lil-Alameen is to sensitize the world that Muslims’ utmost love and affection for Holy Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) is beyond every love.
