 Welcome Message of the Convention

THE GOD OF MANKIND
As the MPAC Convention gains more prominence and global acclaim, it is with great excitement that I share with you this year’s event theme - "One Humanity Under God". Over the years, this event has grown bigger and better alhamdulilah. It has witnessed unprecedented presence of high profile scholars and an array of local and foreign speakers through whose speeches many people have been enriched and inspired.

MPAC made a careful selection of this year’s theme. More than ever, it is crucial that our equality before God Almighty is taught and emphasised. Equality of all humans before God is a concept of Islam derived directly from the oneness of God. In the simplest language, the Qur’an declares equality among people under one God.

...the Lord of mankind
The King of mankind
The God of mankind (Quran, 114:1-3)

The concept of one God, one humanity is a foundation of Islam. Islam promotes the concept of a human brotherhood and the equality of all humans. It maintains that all humans are the children of one man (Adam) and one woman (Eve) and we all share the same lineage, as stated in the Qur’an:

{O people, fear your Lord, Who created you of a single soul, and from it created its mate, and from the pair of them scattered many men and women; and fear God by whom you claim [your rights] from one another and kinship ties. Surely God has been watchful over you.} (An-Nisa’ 4: 1)

By this Qur’anic verse, God announces an important fact of our creation: with Him, there is only one human race- all equal and emanating from one single soul.

Following his prayers, Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) used to say: “I am a witness that all people are brothers”.

In his farewell speech to the pilgrims on 9th of Dhu al-Hijjah, 10 AH (9 March 632CE), Prophet Muhammad addressed all Muslims in simple words stressing the fundamental principles of Islam saying: “O mankind, your God (Allah) is one and your father (Adam) is one, there is no favouring for any Arab over non-Arab nor for non-Arab over Arab, nor for black (skinned) over red (white skinned) except in God’s piety. O Mankind, God has declared inviolable to you each other's blood, money and honour, therefore your blood, money and honour is inviolable to you till the day you meet Him. O mankind, take my advice and you shall be happy, don’t aggrieve, don’t treat unjustly. O mankind, the money of one is not lawful for another except with his own will and full satisfaction” Superiority, as revealed in the Qur’an and the sayings of the Prophet Mohammed (peace be upon him), lies only in piety, meaning God consciousness, a good nature and good behaviour.

The message of this part of the Farewell Pilgrimage is simple and clear; rights and equality of all humans under the same God are sacrosanct and that all humans descended from the same parents. These foundational teachings were not just words but were broadly and plainly exemplified in the life and behaviour of Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) and those who followed his examples.

Our nation needs a massive campaign of re-education for good understanding of these foundational teachings. Religious leaders and scholars of all faiths and schools of thought have a duty to confront our challenges with mass education of these teachings with determination and courage, as well as amplify a united voice to counteract destructive forces at their most fundamental sources. It is essential to increase educational opportunities on the subject of our common humanity, abandon demagogic talk and spiritual pride, and to remind all people of the sanctity and importance of respect for human lives- all human lives.

At this two-day event, we are all looking forward to informed and exciting speeches, discussions and roundtables that will offer the moral values of the Quran and Islam as definitive solutions to those issues closest to our hearts. I and my colleagues look forward to welcoming you and your family to another great event. We pray that Allah blesses our nation with increased faith, piety and grant us peace and security from Him, amin.
