TIP was honoured by a visit from Junaid Jamshed, singer turned preacher, this Friday afternoon. During the 90 minute session in front of an audience packed lecture theater, he touched upon turning points of his life, faith in general, and numerous aspects of an ideal Islamic life.
Among other issues, he discussed faith based business practices, social evils in people, and triumphs of the Tableeghi Jamaat which he represents. He also stressed upon how most of the people who call themselves Muslims have deviated from the ideal teachings of the doctrine and Prophet (pbuh), leaving behind the spiritual and worldly benefits they provide.
JJ further elaborated over how he believes that joining the mission he represents is the correct way to undo the deviations people have fallen into.
He ended his sermon by inviting all students to commit to the activities of the Tableeghi Jamaat instead of “wasting” their upcoming 3 month vacations in industry internships which he believes are “useless” and “exploitative”.
One would like to appreciate TIP and all active societies of TISF for arranging lectures of all guest speakers from diverse fields. It is always interesting to listen to views of people from a variety of fields and schools of thought. I’m sure most people must feel the same.
