The well-known Zakir Ahl-e-Bait Allama Syed Furqan Haider Abidi presided over the function while a well-known senior journalist, columnist from Islamabad Syed Raza Ali Kazmi was the chief guest.
Dr. Aliya Imam, Zakira Syeda Shagufta Zaidi, Allama Syed Athar Hussain Jafari Mashhadi, General Secretary Karachi Editor Club Manzar Naqvi, Religious Scholar Syed Iqbal Haider Zaidi, Allama Agha Danish Haider, Syed Kamal Amrohi, Syed Hassan Saghir Abidi, Syed Azadar Hussain Kazmi, Saghir Shahid Ansari, renowned Naat Khawan Syed Munawar Hussain Zaidi, Chairman Social Students Forum Nafees Ahmad Khan, Qaiser Jamali, Syed Naqi Imam, Qaiser Hassan Jafari, Ahsan Ali, Shehab Ali, Zaman Hassan Naqvi, Syed Wajihul Hassan Zaidi and other eminent personalities attended the function.
Hassan Saghir Abidi started the celebrations by reciting from the Holy Quran. Qaiser Hussain Jafari presented a Naat.
Addressing the function, Allama Syed Furqan Haider Abidi said that Hazrat Ali (A.S.) was born in the Ka’aba and Hazrat Ali (A.S.) is the first and last to be born innocent. Not only the event of birth is unique but even more unique and amazing for Hazrat Fatima binte Asad (S.A.), the wife of Hazrat Abu Talib (A.S.), the rupture of the wall of the Ka’aba. He made special arrangements, otherwise Bibi could have brought the key of the Ka’aba from home because Hazrat Abu Talib (A.S.) of Bani Hashim was the key-bearer of the Ka’aba.
He said that when Hazrat Fatima binte Asad (S.A.) came near the Ka’aba and testified to the Abrahamic religion, she interceded for the son of her womb. The wall of the Ka’aba was shattered. Hazrat Ali (A.S.) soon after his birth recited a few verses of the Surah Mominoon at the first glance on the Holy Prophet’s (SAAW).
Aliya Imam in her address said that these honors and privileges are not available to anyone except Ali. There can be many reasons for calling Ali (A.S.) like the Kaaba, one of which is that just as it is obligatory for the most important member of the religion to pray face to face, so is the guardianship and love of Hazrat Ali (A.S.) obligatory. Just as turning away from the Ka’aba is invalid, so turning away from the path of Ali (A.S.) and Ali (A.S.) is turning away from the truth.
Allama Syed Athar Hussain Mashhadi said that the Muslim ruler should follow the just era of Hazrat Ali (A.S.). With the birth of Maula Ali (A.S.), the door of the city of knowledge of the Prophet (SAAW) was opened. He termed the incidents of bravery and courage of Hazrat Ali (A.S.) and especially his bravery in the Jang-e-Khyber as the best example of bravery in the history of Islam till the Day of Judgment.
The special guest Syed Raza Ali Kazmi said that the Muslim Ummah can reform itself by following the biography of Hazrat Ali (A.S.) through awareness in education and training as he conveyed the message of unity to the Muslims through the Prophet Muhammad Mustafa (SAAW). It is the only way to unite the Muslim Ummah, he added.
Allama Agha Danish Haider said that Hazrat Ali received education and training in the embrace of Prophethood. He said that Hazrat Ali was the best knower of the knowledge of Prophethood and with the knowledge of wisdom and wisdom he has made a profound impact on every sphere of life.
S.M Sibtain Naqvi said that the world of Islam is in dire need of a leader like Hazrat Ali (A.S.) in the present age. Hazrat Ali’s (A.S.) birthday cake was cut by Allama Syed Furqan Haider Abidi Alia Imam, Syed Iqbal Haider Zaidi, Manzar Naqvi, Allama Syed Athar Hussain Jafari and Sibtain Naqvi.
