Shaykh Muhammad Amin al-Hasanat Shah al-Qurashi at the Urs Conference 2010On Sunday 4 July 2010, the twelfth annual Urs Conference in memory of Justice Shaykh Muhammad Karam Shah al-Azhari (1918-1998) took place on the picturesque grounds of Jamia Al-Karam. The conference was attended by over two hundred scholars and masha’ikh from the United Kingdom as well as overseas. These included various notable personalities such as Professor Dr Sahibzada Sajid-ur-Rehman (International Islamic University Islamabad and khatib of the Faisal Mosque, Islamabad) and Shaykh Sayyid Kabir Ali Shah (Astana Aliyah Chura Sharif, Pakistan). The conference was presided over by Shaykh Muhammad Amin al-Hasanat Shah al-Qurashi (Principal and Shaykh al-Tariqah at DMG Bhera Sharif, Pakistan).

Nearly two thousand attendees, brothers and sisters, travelled to Jamia Al-Karam from many towns and cities of the United Kingdom as well as from various European states. Hundreds of vehicles and many coaches filled Jamia Al-Karam’s thirty acre campus of Eaton Hall. The main event was held in large marquees on the main field of Eaton Hall.

During the conference, poets recited their words of poetry in remembrance of Shaykh Muhammad Karam Shah al-Azhari and various speakers shed light on different aspects of his life and teachings. In his address, Shaykh Muhammad Amin al-Hasanat Shah al-Qurashi reflected on the main focus of the efforts of Shaykh Muhammad Karam Shah al-Azhari which was of education and knowledge. He led the conference in condemning the recent terrorist attacks that occurred in Lahore at the shrine of the legendary sufi saint Data Ali Hujweri, the author of Kashf al-Mahjub.

Shaykh Muhammad Imdad Hussain Pirzada at the Urs Conference 2010The main focus of the Urs Conference was on the new project of Muslim Charity, the Eaton Girls Boarding School, which was launched on the same day. Shaykh M I H Pirzada spoke about the need for such a project and then appealed for donations as the projected cost is £5.5 million. The audience responded passionately and generously and within one and half hour, over half a million pounds were raised for the new school. An electric atmosphere overcame the entire conference and numerous people donated and pledged their support for this new project. This is perhaps the first example of raising over half a million pounds in just over one hour for a school in this country. In his statement to the Jang Newspaper after the conference, Shaykh M I H Pirzada thanked all the scholars, attendees and donors for their support to this project.

The conference was shown live on Takbeer TV (Sky Channel 845) and hundreds of viewers were able to watch the lectures and speeches and witness the launch of the Eaton Girls Boarding School project of Muslim Charity Helping the Needy.
