Lecture 2 – Dr Ghazala Qadri
Topic: Respect and Reverence for the Holy Prophet (pbuh).
The session began with a beautiful recitation of the Holy Quran by Sister Rabeeah Rafiq in her melodious voice. Sister Ummayah Qadir created a spiritual atmosphere by reading a Nasheed in her soulful voice. Sister Ifra then introduced Dr Ghazala Qadri to present her second lecture; Respect and Reverence for the Holy Prophet (SAW). Dr Ghazala Qadri spoke about 4 conditions mentioned in Surah Al-A’raf pertaining to our relationship with the Holy Prophet (SAW). The focus of this talk was on the second condition of venerating and revering the Holy Prophet (SAW).
Various Surahs of the Quran were mentioned and explained regarding how Allah SWT sets a protocol of reverence and respect for the Holy Prophet (SAW) ensuring that it is clear for us to understand that the Prophet’s (SAW) status is like none other and if we revere him and respect him without limits, then we will attain Taqwa (God-consciousness), and the light of Taqwa will fill our hearts.
