The holy month of Ramadan was revered in a special concert at the University of Human Development on Day 26 of Ramadan, 17th April 2023.

The university’s president, the presidential council members, lecturers, and a large number of students attended the event.

It consisted of two parts. The first one was a speech by Asst Prof. Dr Suhaib Mustafa Taha about the meaning of life from the viewpoint of the Quran – Ramadan is considered holy mainly because of the revelation of the Quran to Prophet Muhammad in this month. He argued that Quran presents a wider picture of life and makes it purposeful. Without that life is pointless and ‘we are lost’, he continued. He also focused on the reality of time and explained that attention must be given to the present time, to Now, not to the past or future, and ‘we must try to make the best of it.’

The second and longest part of the event was music and religious songs by a well-renowned local group. 

On their way out of Prof. Dr Ali Qaradaghi Hall, where the concert was held, the attendees could pick a copy of a recent book for free titled Environment is Our Mother. The book is written by Prof. Dr Ali Qaradaghi who is the Head of the Board of Trustees of the University of Human Development and the Secretary-General of the International Union of Muslim Scholars.
