Jamaat Ameer stands by the side of the victim’s families of Turag scrap factory blast incident

Only Almighty Allah’s rule can ensure people’s salvation and welfare, says Dr. Shafiqur Rahman

Bangladesh Jamaat-e-Islami’s Ameer Dr. Shafiqur Rahman has said, Allah has created human beings as the best living creatures. To make human beings superior, He also bestowed some noble qualities on them. One of such features is to seek others’ benefit. Allah wants His dearest servants by the side of the helpless people in danger. This is the work for humanity. But no individual can do it perfectly, rather state patronization is required. We need that power to continue these jobs. Besides, we have to stop all bad deeds and irregularities. But to do so, we need courage and strong faith.

Jamaat Ameer said this while addressing a program to extend sympathy and also to distribute financial assistance among 7 families who have lost their dearest member at the scrap material shop in the Kamarpara area under Turag thana this morning. Turag south thana Ameer and Dhaka city north Jamaat’s Majlish-e-Shura member A H Sarkar presided over the program which was hosted by thana secretary Matiur Rahman. Dhaka north city Jamaat Ameer and party’s central executive committee member Muhammad Selim Uddin was present as the special guest. Among others, city Jamaat’s Majlish-e-Shura member and Uttara model thana Ameer Mesbah Uddin Ahmed Nayeem, Turag middle thana Ameer Gazi Monir Hossain, secretary Firoz Alam, Ekramul Haque, Advocate Monir Hossain, and others were present on the occasion.

Jamaat Ameer further said, as you know, Bangladesh Jamaat-e-Islami has been working to establish Islamic law in the country. Many people do not like it. Because they want such an atmosphere that is suitable to commit crimes. Only those people will prefer Allah’s law who want to live in peace and comfort. Only Al Quran can ensure people’s equality, dignity, and honor irrespective of their position. Human-made law cannot ensure peace at all. You know, our top leaders have been hanged. Many of our leaders were shot to death. Some of the activists became crippled. Thousands of leaders and activists are being harassed in connection with false cases. But we are not that organization to be subdued. Nobody can stop us from coming to you with humble assistance. We want to rush into the spot where people face danger. We have no hesitation in doing good. Our members, activists, and well-wishers have been supporting us with a financial contribution to accomplish these activities.

Jamaat Ameer stated that the party activists have been instructed to stand by the helpless people’s side. As a part of that initiative, I am here today. Being present here, you have favored us. We do not favor you. If you did not respond, we were not in a position to help you anymore. Those who are here, should not consider themselves poor.

Whoever has faith is rich and a faithless man is poor. Property is temporary. Almighty Allah has bestowed a such blessing on somebody and He can take it away as well. People of low income are actually making this country functional. When we will be able to respect all considering their contributions, on that day we will become fortunate. You should convey my salam to your family. Please pray for our beloved organization. May Allah make this nation free from torture and repression.

Mohammad Selim Uddin said Islam encourages brotherhood. All believers are brothers to one another. A real Muslim should come forward to help others during a crisis. Almighty Allah says in the Quran, “The Believers are but a single Brotherhood. (Sura Hujurat: verse 10). On another occasion, He says, “The Believers, men, and women, are protectors one of another: they enjoin what is just, and forbid what is evil: they observe regular prayers, practice regular charity.” (Sura Tawbah: Verse 71). The holy Prophet (PBUH) said Allah shows mercy to those who show mercy to His servants,. Bukhari: 1792). So, we have to work hard for the welfare of endangered people.

Jamaat Ameer Dr. Shafiqur Rahman has distributed financial assistance among 7 victim families. One of the victims Mizanur Rahman’s wife is pregnant. Jamaat Ameer assured to provide them regular assistance till the delivery of this pregnant lady is accomplished.
