Speeches of Honorable Judges Of Karnataka High Court At Conference Hall No.1 On 22nd March 2010
Honorable Chief Justice Mr. Gopala Gowda said I congratulate from the core of my heart on behalf of all of us, the efforts of Salaam Centre for Distributing The Holy Quran to the entire Humanity irrespective of their caste, creed and color with sincerity and great zeal in their own language, so that it may be best utilized. This is a great gift from Salaam Centre for the entire Mankind. It is now our responsibility to utilize it to a great extent. We thank Salaam Centre for presenting the Judges and the Advocates free distribution of the Holy Quran, and for sharing the truth with the us. The Holy Quran could be benefited by the masses; it could be advocates, judges, common layman, politicians, Employers, employees, business man, youth, student and so on.
In the year 1973, ‘ The Advocate Association’ of 13 judges have passed judgment stating, the religious thoughts have to be respected as it is the source of Philosophy, and the same is implemented and practiced by us till date.
The important article of the Judgement was that a multi religious country like India, which has accommodated several religions, the fundamental rights of the people of the Country to various religions and sects as per Sec 25 & 26 of the Constitution of the India, permits all religion irrespective of the caste and creed, they are entitled to practice the religious beliefs and propagate their religious texts.
The great concept of the constitution of protecting the fundamental rights of the millions and millions of the different religions by protecting the secularism of the country, we are protecting our Constitution, We are protecting the rule of law, it is a great sign and message should go to entire humanity in the country. Certainly, I am sure that this message with reach to all the concern.
There is a lot of knowledge in the Quran, it teaches us about the various aspects of the society, Its emphasis on Economic, Social, Cultural, Educational, Political aspects and it also covers our dealings with the weaker sections of the society, the poor, downtrodden, and others, and if we read it and implement the same, we can live in peace and harmony as a society and community as a whole. We can discharge our duties as humans and to humans in a humanly manner.”
Honorable Justice Mr. Jawad Rahim said “It had been my pleasure that I am provided a chance to speak a few words about the Quran, I would like to clarify a point, it is a popular opinion among the non muslims that the Quran was written by Prophet Muhammad (Peace be Upon Him), it is quite contradicting as he was an illiterate and he could neither read nor write. The Author of the Quran is Almighty Allah, The Creator and Sustainer of the Universe. The Quran was revealed bit by bit over a period of 23 years through the angel Gabriel, at different places and different circumstances, based on the requirement.
As and when the revelation came, Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) would teach his companions and they would memorize it and would write the same and preserve it. And later the Quran was compiled. The Holy Quran exists exactly as it had been revealed to the Prophet (Peace be upon him) over 1430 years ago; not a word - nay, not a dot of it - has been changed. It is available in its original text and the Word of God has been preserved for all times to come.
We can perhaps understand the magnitude of this triumph of memorizing the Quran when you realize how hard it is to even memorize a small, thin book word for word. It’s nothing short of a miracle. Allah Almighty has made the memorization of His book possible so that it could be preserved in its original form until the Day of Judgment. It is read and re-read by the Muslim world, this book does not rouse in the Muslims any weariness, it rather, through repetition, is more loved every day. It gives rise to a profound feeling of awe and respect in the one who reads it or listens to it.
The Quran is our “Life Instruction Manual”. It contains all we need in order to live happy and successful lives here on earth and, more importantly, in the next life. Together with the Sunnah (practices and sayings of The Holy Prophet Peace be upon Him) it forms a complete blueprint for life.
On the whole we find in it a collection of wisdom which can be adopted by the most intelligent of men, the greatest of philosophers and the most skilful of politicians. The Holy Quran is filled with stories of the Prophets of Ancient times (Moses, Joseph, Jesus, Abraham and other prophets mentioned in the Bible). It also contains numerous warnings and admonitions to mankind to leave sin and to follow the straight path. The Holy Quran talks of Paradise and Hell and details many Islamic Laws, such as those pertaining to divorce, inheritance and so forth. The Quran transformed the hard hearts of the Arabs of Mecca over 1,430 years ago and it still holds the same power today. Hearing the Quran stirs something deep inside your soul. It speaks to man’s deep, instinctive need to connect with His Creator, and what better way than through His Book, the Holy Quran.
It was, therefore, neither by means of violence of arms, nor through the pressure of obtrusive missionaries, that caused the great and rapid diffusion of Islam, but, above all, through the fact that this Book, presented by the Muslims to the vanquished with the liberty to accept it or reject it, was the Book of God to the Entire MANKIND.
Salaam Centre has taken great efforts in circulating the Truth to the world with earnestness, so that brotherhood could be established among mankind. By educating the people about the Truth and the God’s Word, in a most befitting way.”
Honorable High Court Justice, Sri. Jayakumar S. Patil said “Distribution of The Holy Quran in Kannada language by Salaam Centre has brought the people closer. People think that Quran is available in Urdu or Arabic languages and they keep away from it as they are unaware of its meaning, and this leads to fear and doubtfulness. By having translated and distributed in a large scale in Kannada language, such notions have been eliminated.
Secondly, when it reaches the masses, they realize the common factors among them; this may bring people closer to a marginal extent. Slowly this helps us form a unified community and lead to harmony. So I take pleasure in congratulating the Salaam Centre’s incredible job.
Thirdly, when I went through the Quran for the first time, I came across a verse in Page 84 (Chapter Baqarah, Verse 282 & 283), I was quite amazed about the verse, which can be applied to any human being irrespective or religion, class or creed, but it would fetch a lot of benefits such things can also be applied to our lives.
Every thing that is stated here has a basis of trust and accountability to the Almighty God. The Quran emphasis that Almighty God is The All-Seer of what you do, and there fore fulfill your trust accordingly. This way we can come to conclusion that This Book is speaking about justice and nothing against justice. This will make people realize that Islam is a religion of Peace and Tranquility.
I thank Salaam Centre and one and all for providing me the opportunity to speak in this honorable stage.”
