Srinagar: Jammu and Kashmir National Conference Party President and Member of Parliament from Srinagar Dr. Farooq Abdullah on Monday greeted people on the annual Urs observance of Ameer Ul Momineen Hazrat UmarFarooq (RA).
In his message Party President said that Hazrat Umar (RA) followed in the footsteps of our beloved Prophet of Islam (SAW), by following his example and by upholding his traditions. “He was one of the four rightly guided Caliphs; even today he continues to be a role model for strength, justice, love, compassion, and mercy. A capable administrator, stern towards offenders and himself ascetic to core, he was universally respected for his justice and authority. His role in shaping the early Islamic community is widely acknowledged.”
He professed outstanding virtues which if imbued by our youth can go a long way in guiding them towards right path. “On this auspicious day, I pray to Almighty to salvage the humanity from the biggest ever public health nightmare that the world is confronting at present in the shape of COVID-19. I also pray to Almighty to increase the prospects of peace, prosperity, and brotherhood in the world in general and J&K in particular. Observing such days give our youth a chance to refurbish their knowledge and be acquainted with the great Sahaba (RA) like Hazrat Ameer Ul Momineen Umar Farooq (RA). I pray for the fast recuperation of those who are affected with the COVID-19, and safety and strength to numerous frontline workers including medics who are battling the crises on ground day in, day out. I also urge people to abide by public health advisories and necessary protocol in view of the annual observance,” he said.
He also impressed upon the divisional administration to ensure all facilities to devotees at Asar-e-Sharief Dargha Hazratbal, and other shrines across Kashmir in view of the annual observance.
