MOBILE CLINIC INAUGURATED IN JAUNPUR
India Al Khair Foundation, Jaunpur recently organised a function in this city at Hindi Bhawan on the occasion of launching a mobile clinic dispensary. Inaugurating the mobile clinic, President of All India Muslim Personal law Board, Maulana Rabey Hasani Nadwi said in his speech before a gathering of prominent citizens and a large audience that the feeling of pity in man’s heart is an important virtue of man and understanding peoples pains and difficulties and taking steps for their treatment and removal is a great service to humanity. Islam teaches to have pity not only on men but on animals also. In this connection he cited the example of a pious lady who incurred God’s wrath and punishment because she kept a cat hungry for several days as a result of which she died whereas the sins of a woman of ill repute were pardoned when she offered water to a thirsty dog.
In his speech he recalled Jaunpur’s history when medical and spiritual treatments were going on here on a large scale. He hoped that this humanitarian work will not be confined to Jaunpur only but will reach far off places also and will soon be on national scale.
Earlier, welcoming the honourable guests and audience, the Foundation’s chairman, Wakeel Ahmad Ansari described the aims and objectives of the Foundation and said that its first patron was Maulana Sayyad Abul Hasan Ali Nadwi whose blessings have remained with us. Now that Maulana Rabey Nadwi is the chief patron and Maulana Sayeedur Rahman Azmi is the parton, he hoped that with their blessings the activities of the Foundation will very much increase.
Director of the Foundation, Dr Akhtar Sayeed Ansari presented a detailed report of the Foundation’s activities and achievements.

Pune: Imam Abu Hanifa Special Number, brought out by Pune’s fortnightly ‘Usool’ was released here recently at an impressive function held at Assembly Hall, Azam Campus. In his welcome address Usool’s editor Mushtaq Madni said that Imam Azam Abu Hnifa Number is in fact the first in the series of special numbers that Usool will be bringing out from time to time in future for the knowledge and information Urdu speaking people.
Speaking on this occasion Hafiz Ghualm Dastagir Qadiri said that the birth of Abu Hanifa, who rendered invaluable services to Islamic world, was in fact foretold by Prophet (SAW). Chief guest and chairman of Azam Trust Munawwar Bhai said that in matters of leaders and scholars Muslims are the wealthiest nation of the world but the Western scholars and intellectuals by dominating the whole world have usurped the rightful place of Muslim scholars.
The distinguished Islamic scholar, Anees Chishti said in his speech that Abu Hanifa was in fact the person who gave the world the concept of secularism, constitution and social laws. He was farsighted enough to offer solution to imaginary and unforeseen problems which did not exist in his times but could arise in future. Qari Mohammad Abdul Qaiyum Qadiri in his presidential address, while lauding the initiative taken by Usool and throwing light on the multi-sided personality of the great Imam said that Abu Hanifa was in fact destined by Allah to introduce the concept of ijtehad (exercise of judgement) thereby finding solutions to thousands of fiqh problems.
