LOS ANGELES: Eminent religious scholar Dr Aamir Liaquat Hussain says Prophet Muhammad (SAW) embraced all Umaties (followers), but today his Umaties were cutting the throats of fellow Muslims.

He said those indulging in this crime must think for just a moment how they would face Prophet Muhammad (SAW) on the Day of Judgment.

He said all other prophets sought the blessings of Almighty Allah for noble people and punishment for the bad ones, but Prophet Muhammad (SAW) prayed for both.

Dr Aamir expressed these views while addressing a big congregation to celebrate Eid Milad-un-Nabi at Momin Lodge here. He said in fact Muslik (school of thought) was a way to reach Allah and if the goal of all Musliks is one then no Muslik should be termed bad. He said sects could not be abolished and therefore it was better to bring changes in life instead of differences in sects.

He said there was only one Islam and that was the Islam of last Prophet (SAW) and barring this all other terms like the Islam of the Taliban, Islam of liberals, Sufi Islam and radical Islam etc were the weapons of self that were termed Islam and made use of by the powerful for self-interest.

He said the entire Quran lay in just one verse: “follow what the Prophet says, follow not what he advises you against.”Dr Aamir said Prophet (SAW) made us how to worship one God who is everlasting. He also recited some Naats on the demand of people.Imam Shafi of Momin Lodge performed as host. Dr Amir will also address another congregation in Los Angeles today., Twitter: @aamirliaqaut
