Kota (Rajasthan): The National Dussehra Fair in Kota city of Rajasthan started with traditional zeal after burning the statue of Ravana. At the ongoing fair (5th Oct-24th Oct 2011), there is a big exhibition of Islamic books and Multimedia.

There are thousands of books in this exhibition covering different topics related to Islam. It comprises different sections like English, Urdu, Hindi and Arabic. Besides, the holy Quran is available here at least in 10 languages.

The most important part of the exhibition is that organizers display the translations of Quranic verses and Ahadees on the board in different languages, then they invite the present people --Muslims, non-Muslims -- to ask any question about Islam and if any question comes, they answer it in the light of these verses. Besides, non-Muslims buyers of the books are given 10% discount and also Hindi and English translations of the Quran are given to them.

The exhibition opens everyday at 6:00 pm and closes at 1:00 am where more than twenty five volunteers offer their services daily.
The exhibition was inaugurated on 5th Oct by Er. Khursheed Hussain, president, Jamaat-e Islami Hind Rajasthan.

Addressing a gathering on the occasion, Mr. Hussain highlighted the importance of Dawah work. “It is our primary duty to convey the message of Islam to mankind. We should adopt all resources like literature, multimedia and dialogues for this pious purpose,” he said.

The keynote speaker Dr. Mohammed Naeem Falahi said that Allah is the only creator of this universe so all of us should obey His orders. Allah has created us and the people who were before us, he added.

The function was presided over by the renowned personality of Kota, Qazi Anwaar Hussain, Chief Qazi of Kota. He threw light on Surah Al Asr and explained the basic four qualities of a successful person here and hereafter.


اگرچہ بت ہوں جماعت کی آستینوں میں
تجھے ہے حکم اذاں لا الہٰ الاللہ
