We are living in an age which has witnessed tremendous scientific advancement. Today we have innumerous number of schools, colleges and universities for imparting education that the human history had ever witnessed before. This scientific advancement and huge number of educational institutions should have made us better human beings. But, what we witness is diametrically opposite. Today’s world is more materialistic and self-centered., We are flooded with information but still lagging behind in beneficial knowledge. Moral values are diminishing day by day. Our leaders, who were supposed to be role models are becoming corrupt and greedy. Our scholars who are supposed to shape the future generations are also influenced more by money and wealth.
Religion is a major guiding force for many and for some others it has no value. Many of those who practice religion follow it blindly as a dogma and set of ancestrial belief and practices. Rarely you will find people who follow belief systems objectively Most of us do not bother to know true religion. We are content with what we found from our forefathers.
Our creator has never been unjust to the mankind. He has always made sure that his true religion is available for his servants to guide them to the straight path and to save them from all sorts of destructions. He had sent his prophets and messengers from time to time; the last one of them is our beloved prophet Muhammad (SAS). Quran is the last testament revealed on him. The only way to come out of today’s trials and tribulations and, attain much needed peace and happiness is to follow him and the values taught by him. Many people amongst us are unaware of this greatest personality of the human history. The one who reads and understands him will realize that he was the savior of mankind.
In view of the above, Indian Muslim Association (IMA) in cooperation with Islam Presentation Committee (IPC) is carrying out a campaign under the theme “Muhammad (SAS) - Savior of Mankind” to introduce this noble personality and his teachings to those who do not know about him and his teachings.
As part of this campaign, pamphlets in various languages (English, Telugu, Tamil & Hindi) on his personality will be distributed. Lectures are being delivered through Radio Kuwait and Kuwait TV. A dedicated website www.saviourofmankind.org has been designed and launched on the biography of the prophet and his teachings. Online quiz is being conducted on this website. Online quiz is open to all and anyone can visit the website and participate in the quiz. Inaugural program was organized on 24 Jan 2013 to mark the beginning of the campaign. Through this campaign, we are trying to reach out to over 100,000 people from various backgrounds in Kuwait and they are enlightened about the teachings of Islam and its relevance in the Modern World.
